The London Evening- Post Numb. 2966 10 From Thursday November 6, to SATURDAY November 8, 1746. Yesterday arriv'd the Mail from Holland. Genoa, Oct. 25. THE Republick has hitherto paid no more of the large no more of the Contributions which were im- pos'd upon it than the Sum one Million seven hundred Thousand Genovines: The Senators have declared to the Marquess de Botta, that it was absolutely impossible for them to satisfy the full De- mand, that there was nothing left in the Bank of St. George but the Sums destin'd t0 Works of Piety, which they were nor permitted to meddle with ; that they therefore earnestly pray'd him to have Regard to these Reasons, but if, contrary to all Expectation, he would not hearken to them, nor take the Inability of the Republick into Consideration, they must be oblig'd to submit to their Fate, since they had us'd their utmost Efforts to comply with the De- mands made upon them. The Marquess de Botta was far from being satisfy'd with these Reasons ; on the contrary, shew'd his dislike of them, by answering the Senate, that it was necessary to pay in the whole Con- tributions within the Time prescribed ; that the No- blesse, having had the greatest Share in bringing the Republick into the Engagements it was under, ought to exert themselves in order to extricate it out of the Dif- ficulties those Engagements had brought it into , that he advis'd the Government not to expose themselves to a Military Execution ; for if they oblig'd him to come to that Extremity, he could not answer for the Conse- quences. The fear that this Answer rais'd in the Minds of the Noblesse, occasion'd the principal Part of them to unfurnish their Palaces, and to put their most valu- able effects into Religious Houses. Turin, Oct The Spaniards separated from the French the 10th Instant. The Garrison of the Castle of Ventimiglia, consisting of 140 Men and ten Officers, surrender'd at Discretion the 23d. The last Letters from the Army advise, that they were to begin Yesterday to batter Montalban Chamberry, Nov. 5. We learn from Provence, that the French had built Redoubts, and rais'd several Batteries along the Varo, in order to dispute the Passage of that River with the Austrians, and that it's question'd whe- ther the latter, not having had Time to form the neces- sary Magazines, will be able to penetrate so soon as was design'd into Provence. It's added, that the Infant Don Philip would spend the Winter at Aix. Petersbcurg, Oct. Count Vitzhum, the Polish Mi- nister, having receiv'd an Express from Warsaw, had an Audience thereupon Of the Empress. He has since de- clared to the Foregn Ministers, ' That as the Affair of the Election of a new Duke of Courland has been up- on the Carpet ever since the Opening of the Dyet, his Polish Majesty, attentive to the Good of his Kingdom, had order'd him to make some Representations to the Empress upon that Subject, and to inform her, that the Commissary of the Republick at Mittau had Orders to lend his Hand to this Affair. Warsaw, Oct. 29. The Marshal having acquainted - The Dyet on the 14th, that he had receiv'd a Letter from his Most Christian Majesty, and having communicated the Contents thereof, it was resolv'd that the Marshal, in Conjunction with the Senators and principal Mi- nisters of State, should consider of a proper Answer to be given to that. Letter. On the 25th three Constitu- tions were read in the Chamber of Nuncios; the first, for confirming the Treaties and Alliances between the Republick and her Neighbours, the second, for en- abling his Majesty to raise the Arriere Ban when it shall appear to him necessary ; the third, to fix the Con- vocation of future Dyets to the Monday after the Feast of St. Bartholomew ; all which were pass'd Nem. Con. in the Affirmative; and on the 28th the Nuncios be- gan to hold their Provincial Sessions, those of Great Poland at the Barnardines, those of Little Poland at the Fathers of the Reform, and those of Lithuania at the Jesuits College. Stockholm, Nov. 4.. Lieutenant- Colonel Vick is order'd to set out for Finland with a Train of Artillery, which occasions various Conjectures. Copenhagen, Nov. S. It's reported, that the Queen is with Child again. Nov. 8. On the 6th a Detachment of French TRoops attack'd a Body of about 400 Hussars, who were posted in a Village near Hasselt; these last at the Begin- ning made some Resistance, but were at length obliged to sUrrender Prisoners of War. As the Austrians have taken Quarters in most of the little Towns of this Dio- cese, and the French seem inclinable to take Quarters there too, there will probably be sharp Skirmishes this Winter between the different Parties. Maestricht, Nov. 11. Yesterday we receiv'd Advice that a large Detachment of Troops, commanded by General Trips, having taken Post at Tirlemont, seiz'd a consi- Magazine of forage there, belonging to the French, and that 500 Carts were brought thither, to carry the ProVisions of that Magazine to Tongres. Paris Nov. 7. The Pretender's eldest Son is preparing to make a great Figure, and all his equipages are getting ready as fast as possible. Among other Things, he will haVe a company of Horse Guards composed of twenty- five of his faithful Highlanders. PARIS Nov 11 The King has appointed the Duke of Richlieu to go into Poland; to make the Demand of the Princess Mary Josephine for the Dauphin : That Lord, who will be accompany'd by the Duke d'AgenOiS, and by M. Voliaire, is actually preparing a superb Equipage. There Is much Talk of a private treaty between this Court and that of Spain, the principal Article whereof, it's pretended, is, that this Crown shall furnish 50 Men of War of the Line, which are to be mann'd by French Sailors and Soldiers, and employed in the Common Cause and it's even pretended, that the Catholick King is actually raising every fifth Man of his Subjects, who is unmarry'd, and in a Condition of bearing Arms. The Report of a Quintuple Alliance, offensive and defensive, between Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Prussia, and Saxony, still contihues, but few People give Credit to it. The King, who is resolv'd to make his utmost Efforts the next Campaign, will for that purpose levy upon his Subjects the fifth of their Revenue in lieu of the Tenth, , which is already establish'd, and the Declaration there- upon will speedily appear. They write from Strasbourg, that several Englishmen had been arrested there upon Suspicion of having been the Occasion of the Fire which happen'd some Time ago at the Arsenal of Brest. There is no other Talk than from Conjecture of the Affairs of Provence, all Letters from thence being intercepted : In the mean Time it's observ'd, that the Court affects to talk with great Indifference of that Invasion and it's assur'd, that the Minister of foreign Affairs, express'd himself in a publick Audience to several foreign Mini- sters in such a Manner, as it was easy to understand that the Court rely'd upon Succours which were not known to the Publick. COUNTRY NEWS. York, Nov. 4. On Saturday last eleven of the Rebels under Sentence of Death, viz. George Hamilton, Ed- ward Clavering, John James Jellens, Daniel Frazier, William Conolly, James Sparks, Charles Gordon, An- gus M'Donald, James Maine, Benjamin Mason, and William Dempsey, who were order'd for Execution that Day, ( William Crossby, an Irishman, of Col. Townley's Regiment and William Barclay, of Col. Grant's, having been repriev'd) were brought from the Castle in three Sledges; but as they were coming down Castlegate, Mr. Duet, one of his Majesty's Messengers, brought a Re- prieve for John James Jellens, who was immediately ta- ken out of the Sledge, and carried back to the Castle. Hamilton, Clavering, Frazier, and Gordon, were in the first ; Mason, Maine, Conolly, and Dempsey, in the second; M'Donald and Sparks in the last. They were guarded by the Duke of Montagu's Horse to the Place of Execution, which was corded round, Part of the Troop- ers on Foot within the Line, and the rest on Horseback without. When they came there they walk'd up to the Gal- lows, without the least Concern, where they prayed very devoutly. After which Capt. Hamilton mounted the Ladder first, Frazier the next, and the rest in Order. When they had been some Time on the Scaffold, seve- ral Papers were dispers'd by Clavering, Maine, and Ma- son, which were immediately gather'd up and given to the Under Sheriff. After which he call'd them over Man by Man, and told them, He hoped they were sensible of the Crime they suffer'd for; to which Maine and Mason replied, They were content to die for the Cause they had engaged- in, and died in Charity with all Men; and one of them said, He died because his K— g was not upon the T e. Capt. Hamilton said nothing at the Gallows, but behaved with great Decency. After about Half an Hour spent in Prayer with the Rev. Mr. Etty, Ordinary of the Castle, they were all tied up, and the Boards of the Scaffolding ( under the Gallows) which they stood upon were drawn away. When they had hung ten Minutes, the Executioner cut them down, laid their Bodies on a Stage built for that Purpose, and stripp'd them naked. Capt. Hamilton was the first whose Heart was taken out, which the Execu- tioner threw into the Fire, crying out, Gentlemen, behold the Heart of a traitor. When he came to the last Man, which was Frazier, he said, Gentlemen, behold the Heart of the last Traitor: God save Xing GEORGE. Upon which the Spectators gave a loud Huzza. Then he scored each of their Arms and Legs, but did not cut them off, cry- ing, Good People behold the four Quarters of a Traitor; and when he had finish'd that Part of the Operation, he chopp'd off their Heads, beginning with Frazier, and ending with Hamilton, which finish'd the Execution : The whole was conducted throughout with the utmost Decency and good Order. Two Hearses were ready to receive the Bodies of Capt. Hamilton, Clavering and Gordon, and Coffins for the rest. The Heads of Conolly and Maine were set up at Micklegate Bar Hamilton's was put into a Box, in or- der to be sent to Carlisle; but the rest were put into the Coffins with their Bodies; and they were all buried be- hind the Castle. Four of them only were Roman Ca- tholicks. George Hamilton was a Captain of Hussars, and the Reafon he gave for entering into the Rebel Service, was, his having spent his Fortune. Edward Clavering was of a Gentleman's Family in Northumberland. Daniel Frazier was a Highlander, who had deserted from Lord Loudon, and join'd the Rebels after the Action of Preston Pans. William Conolly, an Irishman, who had been in the Welsh Fuzileers, but deserted, and join'd the Duke of Perth's Regiment. James Sparks, a Derby- shire Man, of Townley's Regiment; Charles Gordon, of Glenbucket's Regiment; Angus M'Donald, of McDonald's Regiment; James Maine, Grant's Regi- ment; Benjamin Mason, and William Dempsey, Irish- men; the first of Glenbucket's Regiment, the other Townley's. We hear that Sir David Murray, Bart. and fifty two more, have receiv'd Notice of Execution for Sa- TUrday Thursday last a Brigg was chas'd by a French Priva-. teer of 10 Guns upon the Yorkshire Coast, and the Mas- ter and Crew were preparing to run her on Shore at Hornsea but the Inhabitants of that Place came down to the Sea side and told the Captain, that if he would take them on board, they would stand by his Ship, and defend it from being taken. They t00k the Ship's flag and fix'd it on the Cliff, as a Challenge to the Enemy; at the Sight of which the French bore down upon ' em, and fir'd directly ; which was as speedily return'd by a Volley of Small- Arms ( they having nothing else to defend them- selves with) and three Huzza's, and God Save King George. The Privateer was so near the Shore, that se- veral of the balls ( some of which were four pounders and some Two) flew above half Way to the Town: The French finding that their Attempt was likely to prove ineffectual, thought proper to sheer off, and the People of Horsea offer'd their Service to conduct the Ship that Night into the humber 0r Burlington- Bay, but the Master thank'd them for the Preservation of his Ship, and said he thought there was no necessity to trouble them any farther, because the privateer was running off as fast as she could. This is the second Ship that they have prevented from being taken within this Year and half. The Rev. Mr. Chicken, Curate at Horn- sea, was particularly serviceable to the Publick on both, these Occasions. Bath, Nov. 4. We hear from Taunton, that at a Gene- ral Quarter- Sessions of the Peace for the County of So- merset, Mary Hamilton, otherwise George, otherwise Charles Hamilton, was try'd for a very singular and no- torious Offence: Mr. Gold, Council for the King, open'd to the Court, That the said Mary, & c. pretending her- self a Man, had marry'd fourteen Wives, the List of which Number was one Mary Price, who appear'd in Court, and depos'd, that she was marry'd to the prisoner some little Time since at the Parish Church of Sr. Cuth- bert in Wells, and that they were bedded as Man and Wife, and liv'd as such for about a Quarter of a Year, during which Time she, the said Price, thought the Prisoner a Man, owing to the Prisoner's using certain vile and deceitful Practices, not fit to be mention'd. There was a great Debate for some Time in Court about the Nature of her Crime, and what to call it but at last it was agreed, that she was an uncommon no- torious Cheat, and as such, was sentenc'd to be publick- ly whipp'd in the four following Towns, viz. Taunton, Glastonbury, Wells, and Shipton Mallet, to be impri- son'd for six Months, and to find Sureties for her good Behaviour for as long Time as the Justices at the next Quarter Sessions shall think fit.

His Majesty is so well recover'd of his late Indisposi- tion, that on Thursday last he dress'd and receiv'd Com- pany publickly for the first Time. An Order is issued out for St. James's Palace to be ready on Tuesday next for the Reception of the Royal Family, who are to remove thither that Day from Ken- sington for the Winter; and his Majesty's Birth- Day is to be kept the Thursday following.

On Wednesday died, at his House in St. Mary Axe, Mr. Charles Maddox, an eminent Broker in the Lisbon and Portugal Trade.

ELIZABETH BEZOMBER, living near the ' Horse- Ferry at Battersea, thinks proper to acquaint the World, that she has been afflicted with a lingering Consump- tion these eighteen Months past, that she was Worn away like- a Skeleton, and was obliged to be taken out of bed and Put into it like an Infant ; she had a continual Cough and spit- ting of Blood and Matter, proceeding from an Ulcer in the Lungs, violent Night Sweats, and a total Loss of Appetite, so as not to be capable of taking any Sort of solid food for some Months; She could seldom put her eyes together upon Account of the Cough, great Pains and 0ppression, and a burning Hectick Fever, which was always upon her : She took many of the Remedies given for Consumptions. which always stuffed her up and took away her Appetite. In this deplorable Condition she apply'd herself to DR. Dowman, celebrated for the Cure of Consumptions, who restor'd her to her perfect State of Health in the Space of two Months Time. Several other Patients in the same Disease have been radi- cally cured by the Doctor, which is a Proof that the Science of Curing confirm'd Consumptions is happily discover'd, The Consumptive Patients in the Countries may write their Cases to the Doctor, at his House hear the Opera- House in the Hay- Market, and they'll be receiv'd and answer'd ; and those in Town may consult him ' till eleven every Morning. For the VENEREAL DISEASE. THE shortest, safe and regular, Cure this Day in the World, from the slightest Infection to the most inve- terate Degree of it by a Medicine pleasant to take, and as easy in its Operation as it is effectual for a thorough Cure; so that the unfor- tunate Patient gets suddenly and surprizingly well, without distaste to his Palate, the Last Disorder of Body, or any Confinement whatever. This is that great Remedy, now so well known and long experienced to be truly infallible, and is the Grand ANTI SYPHILICON that Radcliffe and Garth used to say would totally extirpate the Venereal Disease from the Face of the Earth, were it but universally known, and properly taken. Fresh Infections, call'd Claps, with all their cruel attendant Symptoms, it presently cures ; and it taken in time, even prevents their taking Place. It is a safe, gentle, and pleasant Family Purge, even for Children as well as grown Persons, in all Cases where Purging is necessary ; nor can the deepest Scurvy, Rheu- matism, Gout, Evil or Leprosy, stand before v, but are pleasantly cured and thoroughly extirpated by it, as well as the highest and most inveterate State of the confirm'd Venereal disease, which, with all its most raging Symptoms, it soon eradicates, restoring Health Strength, and Vigour to the Body. Those who once take it, will never have Re- course to any thing else. OnePot in most Cases is sufficient for a Cure, and can be had only at Mr. Radford's Toyshop, at the Rose and Crown against St. Clements Church- Yard in the Strand, at a Pot, seal'd up with a Book of Instructions, by which all Persons may fully under- stand their own Condition, and certainly know when, and When not, the Venereal poyson is rooted out of their Bodies. Note, Ask only for a six Shilling Pot for the Scurvey. No Letter answer'd unless Post- paid. This Day is publish'd.

Sir John Eyles Bart, in 1727: He has left one Daughter the Wife of Rawlin- son, of Chipping Norton in the County of Oxford, Esq; who has several Children. He was a Gentleman that had a thorough Knowledge of Men and Trade, and died possess'd. of a plentiful Estate, which he acquired with great Reputation, and his Death is regretted by all wh0 had the Pleasure of his Acquaintance. Yesterday died, at his House in Bury- Court in St. Mary Axe, Capt. Spence, brother to George Spence, an eminent Merchant of this City. " The following is a very exact List of Winter Quarters for the British TroopS' in Holland, viz. REGIMENTS. Foot. Wolfe's at Grave. Douglas's at Bommel. Pulteney's at Heusden. Artillery at Bois Le Duc. Howard's Bois Le Duc. Graham's Semple's.} DraAg0on'S. Scotch Greys at Langstraet. Worcum. Lord Rothe's at Hockehem. . Asperen. Leerdam. Cope's at Vianen. Meirkirk. They write from the Hague, that it is reported, the Court of Dresden has resolv d to furnish 20,0oo Men to a certain Power, by Virtue of a Treaty lately stgned, and that the Electors of Cologn, Bavaria, and Palatine, have been invited to accede thereto; which, we hope, may be only a French Fiction, like many other Reports raised of late. The French Minister in the Empire, M. de la Noue, having lately made a Journey to Aschassenbourg, it has occasiOn'd no small Speculation ; but our Letters from Francfort say, that the true Reason of it, was to have procured a Declaration he carried with him, to be trans- mitted to the Dyet of the Empire, by the Director of Mentz, who thought fit however to refuse it, because his Most Christian Majesty has not as yet acknowledg'd the Emperor ; upon which M. de la Noue return'd to Francfort, in order to lay this Paper before the Assem- bly of the States of the Circle of Franconia. It is observable, that at this critical Conjuncture there are more French Ministers at the little Courts of Ger- many,, than have ever been known; for besides Mess. de la Noue, Father and Son, they have Mess. du Four and Tilli, and the Abbes Onillon and Follard, who are busy in whispering one Story or another in the Ears of the Princes, at whose Courts they reside, continually ; by which Aleans they keep up a perpetual Jealousy and, ferment amongst thofe, whofe mutual Interests, ( in case either Austria or Brandenbourg could be annihilated) ought to bind them to live in the strictest Harmony and Friendship. The Letters from whence we take these Particulars mention another, which is still more remarkable, viz. that one of these little Ministers observing what Im- pression the News from Italy made at the Court where he resided, was imprudent enough to say, that he be- liev'd those Losses would not much alarm the Ministry at Versailles, because the Prosperity of the House of Austria would never fail bringing in to their Assistance a certain Power in Germany ; and that he was of Opi- nion, the Tranfactions of this Winter would fully jus- tify his Sentiments, Several private Letters from Holland seem to hint at the fame thing, and farther observe, that without this Key; it wOuld be very difficult to account for what they assure us is an indisputable Matter of Fact, viz. That of all the Troops detach'd from the Army of Marshal Saxe, since the Battle of Liege, there is not so much as a single Battalion, that has actually march'd towards Provence ; from whence it is evident, that France trusts the Safety of her Frontiers to some very powerful Di- version. On Thursday last the Court sat at St. Margaret's Hill, Southwark, on the Trial of rhe Rebel Prisoners, when the Right Hon. the Lord Chief Justice Lee, the Hon. Mr. Baron Reynolds, and the Hon. Mr. Baron Clive, were on the Bench. Henry Kerr, a Colonel in the Rebel Army, and Aid de Camp to Lord George Murray, was found Guilty of High Treason : The Council for the Prisoner alledged, that he was an Officer in the Service of the King of Spain, but they soon gave up that Point. It appeared he was very active in the Rebellion ; and at the Battle of Culloden, after the Rebels were broke, endeavoured to rally them. Then Alexander M'Lauchlan, a Major in Lord Tul- libardin's Regiment, was tried and found Guilty ; but some favourable Circumstances appearing, the Jury de- sired the Court to recommend him to his Majesty's , Mercy. Yesterday the Court sat at St. Margaret's Hill, South- wark; the Judges present were the Hon. Mr. Justice Foster, and the Hon. Mr. Baron Clive. When Thomas Watson, late a Tobacconist in Perth, a Lieutenant in Lord Ogilvie's Battalion, and taken at the Battle of Culloden, was, after a short Trial, found Guilty of High Treason. Hector Mackenzie, of the Parish of Lochbrom in the Shire of Ross, and a Tenant of the Earl of Cro- martie's, and Ensign in his Regiment, who was taken prisoner at the Castle of Dunrobin, by the Argyllshire Militia ( which the Rebels had taken Possession of) was found Guilty, after a Trial of five Hours, the Jury with- drawing only a short Time. The Rev. Mr. James Robertson, Minister of the Parifh of Lochbrom, gave him the Character of a Person well affected to the present Government.• Then the Court adjourn'd ' till this Morning. This Week one Fremont was apprehended at a Re- hearsal at the Opera House, where he was a Dancer, by Mr. Carrington, one of his Majesty's Messengsrs, for High- Treason, he being, during the Rebellion, an Officer in the Rebel Army in Scotland ; several Letters were found about him from his Friends in Scotland. He was, after being examin'd by the Secretaries of State, committed to New- Prison ; several of the Rebels now in Custody knew him. He says he is an Officer in the King of France's Service. On Wednesday Night the House of Mr. Stephens, an eminent Brazier of Stretton's- Ground, Westminster, was broke open, and robb'd him of upwards of 35I. in Money. On Thursday last William Cornish, who was lately robb'd, and had his Throat cut from Ear to Ear by High- waymen at Bayswater, and afterwards carried to the Hospital at Hyde- Park Corner, died of his Wounds. They write from Dover, that the Carlisle Privateer, Capt. Beazley, had taken the King of Prussia, Capt. Schutz, from Koningsbourg, laden with Hemp, suppos'd to be bound to France, and brought her into that Port. The Restoration, Kemp, of Topsham, was taken the 28th past, three Leagues to the Eastward of Beachy, as she lay at Anchor to stop the Tide of EL'J, by a French Privateer Snow of 14 Carriage Guns and 12 Swivels. The above Vessel was bound to London with Bale Goods and Oats. Extract of a Letter from Antigua, July 23. ' As to French Privateers, they are so thick about the Island that People don't care to send their Boats, so that the Country, upon the Indolence of the men of War, have fitted out a Guard de Costa, which three Days ago ( being the first Day of her going out) brought in a Row- Galley that lay off Popeshead, with 25 Hands, close under Shore; but came out and gave Chace in Hopes of a Prize. My Friend we are in a miserable Condition, and in great Danger of starv- ing, by the French taking so many of our Provision Vessels; and they at the same Time in the greatest Plenty, and all for want of our Men of War being properly and constantly employed in Cruizing to the Windward of our Islands. for the Protection of Trade; which would they but do, the Tables would be turn'd, and we should live in Plenty and the Ene- my would be starv'd.—— O Tempora O Mores! Nine or ten Sail of English Men of War on the Sta- tions of Barbadoes and the Leeward- Islands, and still to be devour'd by Privateers!— God grant better Times and better Conduct. The Men of War say, that they cannot sail well enough to catch the Privateers; but we say, and all the World knows, that they can sail well enough to protect and retake the Merchant Ships, if they would keep cruizing in proper Stations. But they can do neither by lying in Port, or by going to the Spanish Main, to seek after Prizes for their own Profit: And ' till the Act be alter'd that gives the Men of War the Whole of what they take, there is no room to hope for other Measures. I have a very great Va- lue and Regard for the Gentlemen of the Navy, and wish many of them heartily well, as being particu- larly acquainted with them; but I can see no Reafon forgiving the Whole of the Merchant Ships and Goods that they take from the Enemy. They are paid, vic- tualled and mann'd at the Expence of the Nation ; — and, I believe, there never yet was an Instance of im- pressing Men to serve as Captains; and so no Fear of getting Commanders, and good ones too ; it being to be observed, that those who fight for Honour do ge- nerally behave best, and take most Care of the Trade; the Reason of which is plain; for when their Passions are not biass'd with Self- Interest, their Thoughts are employed for the Service of their King and Country, and gaining Honour for themselves. It is generally said, that Covetousness is the Root of all Evil, which is true in this Case as well as others; therefore the Cause must be remov'd, or the Effect will not cease. The Thing that was intended for great and good Ends, has not answer'd the Purposes design'd, for which Reason it would be just and prudent to try other Me- thods. When our Men of War take Ships of equal or great- er Force than themselves, or do other gallant Actions, I am for crowning the Captains with Lawrels, and rewarding them according to their Merit, not only by Promotion, but otherwife. But what Glory is there in a Alan of War of 40 Guns, or more, to take a Merchant Ship of 50, or under, though she may prove to be worth 100,0001. or upwards, and there- fore why should the Whole be given to them ? The French have no such Allowance, and if they meet a Fleet of Merchant Ships under Convoy of a Number of English Men of War, that are not superior to them- selves, they will leave the Merchant Snips to attack our Men of War; and this we may conclude is owing to their not having the Whole of what they take, and why our Men of War should not be put upon the same Footing, is past my Comprehension ; for which Reason I hope to live to see the Act alter'd, and to have our Navy to do as many brave and gallant Actions without it as with it. I am sure it will be a Means of engaging them to keep more On their Stations, and thereby t0 secure and protect our own Trade better than heretofore. Five Days ago came down a Flag of Truce from Martinico, with 23 Masters and about 140 Men into St. John's, and another into English Harbour with 60 Men, so that herewith you have a List of the Names of the Masters, as well as of several of their Vessels, that have been taken and carry'd into Martinico and Guardaloupe from the 23d of May last to the 15th Instant, being about 45, which I believe will hardly be credited by People in general, but you may depend thereon for Truth, and shew the List if you think pro- per. Out flag of Truce, which carry'd up a Few Priso- ners, is also come down, and brought sixty- odd Men but I cannot yet get a List of the Vessels that they be- long'd to, so must now avoid saying any Thing more about them." But I pray God to send us Relief, OR we shall be undone, and all this I again say is for want of Our Men of WAr's being properly employ'd in Cruizing to the Windward of the Islands belonging to their respective Stations, which is a Fact that can- not be contradicted; and therefore it is to be hop'd that those who have been the Occasion of our past Misfortunes will be punish'd, and that others will thereby be induced to take more Care of us hereafter ; it not being to be suppos'd that Men of War are sent to these parts for the Sake of lying in Harbour, or going to the Spanish Main to seek after Prizes for the Advantage of particular Persons. Poor Admiral Bal- chen had the Glory of the Nation so much at Heart, that when he was last out, he declar'd he would ra- ther take Half a Dozen French Men of War, two or three Galleons ; which account I had from Capt. Gregory, who was then on board of one of our Men of War, and heard the other say it but a few Days before he was lost ; and therefore I believe there can be no Doubt of the Truth of it ; and I wish every Body else was of his Opinion; and then we might possibly take more of the french Navy than we do, and so farewell.' Extract of a letter from Port- Mahon, 0ct. 10 ' Orders are arriv'd here from the English Admiralty to all Captains of Men of War and Privateers of that Nation, that they should avoid giving, any just Cause of Complaint to the Merchant Ships of the United. Provinces, and conform exactly to the Treaties sub- sisting between his Britannick Majesty and the States- General, under Pain of being broke, or suffering a more severe Punishment. The Dutch Consul was, on this Occasion, invited by the Judges of the English Admiralty, who communicated these Orders to him, and inform'd him, that the King Solomon, a Ship that had been stopp'd, was at Liberty whenever the Captain thought proper. Letter from on board the Saltash Privateer, at Lisbon, dated October 11. 4 I have cruiz'd the Seas ever since my Departure from Torbay, except two Days I was in Terceira, to Water. On Saturday the 20th past, at Three o'Clock in the Afternoon, I saw two Sail, the nearest of which I gave Chace to, and about Four next Morning came within Gun- shot of him, when I kept a- stern ' all Day, then saw he had 22 Guns and a great Number of Men I then thought I had got a Peru- man to deal with, so run up within Pistol shot of her, with an Intent to go Yard- Arm and Yard- Arm, before I shew'd who I was; but he then fir'd his Stern Chace at me, and kill'd one Man, and hoisted his Colours, and in return I gave him a Broadside, and hoisted mine. When we had continu'd the Engagement, which was very brisk about six Glasses, I brought down his Colours, Mizen Yard and Main- Top- Mast, and disabled his Fore- Top- Mast, and cut his Sails and Rigging. About that Time he brought down my Main- Top- Mast, cut my Main- Stay, Rigging and Sails very much, and what was worse, six of my Guns were dismounted, and one broke. However, I got my Guns from the other Side, then haul'd close to him, and renew'd our Acquain- tance, and a little after eight Glasses they call'd for Quarter. I then found she was from Newfoundland, bound to Marseilles. She has 22 Guns, four Pounders, and 96 Men. I then made the best of my Way to . the Eastward, and at the Privateer and Prize were not fit to proceed to England, nor had I Water for so large a Family, so made for this Port. I had five Men kill'd, and the French two, accord- ing to their Account. The Prize is call'd the Queen of Angels, of Sr. Malo's, Richard Deforces, Com- mander. She went a Cruize before she took in her Cargoe, and took one Vessel, belonging to Dartmouth, and has the Ransomer on Board, so I hope to receive it for him. I find the Prize, has on Board, Fish and Oil; I know not yet what Quantity, but she is a large Ship.' Berks, Nov. 6, 1746. .
