The London Evening Post. Numb. 3664 From SATURDAY April 13, to TUESDAY April 16, 1751. Yestersday arriv'd the Mails from France and Holland. Leghorn, April 8. H E last Advices from Corsica import, that the Differences which have happened between some of the Pieves in that Island, are like to be attended with bad Consequences to the publick Tranquility : There has been a very sharp Ren- counter between the Inhabi- tants of Cassinea, assisted by the People of Taragna, and the Inhabitants of the Pieve of Moriani, which ended to the Disadvantage of the latter, who were repulsed wiih great Loss. But as the Marquis de Curzay, the French General, is gone to make Enquiry on the Spot into the Causes of this Fray, it is hoped he will find Means to reconcile the Combatants. Vienna, April to. The Elector Palatine has sent a Me- morial to this Court of the Demands which he has upon it for Contributions of Provisions and Forage, which the Imperial Troops exacted upon his Territories during the last War, for quartering in them, and for Damages his Subjects sustained thereby all which amount to a considerable Sum. Pains are actually taken to examine the Validity of these Pretentions. Paris, April 18. The News of the Court's going into Mourning last Saturday for the Death of the Prince of Wales was premature: Some Difficulties have occurred in this Matter, which must be previously adjusted. The Earl of Albemarle has already had several Conferences with the Marquis de Puysieux about it. IRELAND. Dublin, April 6, His Grace the Archbishop of Dublin has given the Prebend in St. Patrick's Cathedral, void by the Death of the late Mr. Chamberlaine, to the Rev, Mr. Lyon, Rector of Bray. Last Wednesday died the Right Hon. the Lady Dowager Donerayle, Relict of the late Arthur Mohun St. Leger, Viscount Donerayle, in the County of Cork, and Baron Kilmaiden, in the County of Waterford. Her Ladyship was Sister to the Right Hon. the Lord Vis- count Mazareene. The same Day died, in a very advanced Age, at his House; in Bolton Street, Mr. Francis Lynch, one of the most eminent Merchants of his Time, who retired from the Fatigue of Business some Years since. The same Day his Majesty's Plate was run for at the Currah, which was won by Sir Ralph Gore's Mare, Sportly; and the Match on Thursday by Sir Ralph's Grey Mare. Dublin, April 9. A few Days ago John Grady, Esq; of the County of Limerick, was married to the Hon. Miss de Courcy, eldest Daughter of the Lord Kinsale, SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, April 9. Mr. Merrilies, and the Company that went in quest of him, arrived on Saturday Night ; and yet this Affair is not quite free of Mysteries: He has made the following Declaration before the Magistrates of this City, of his late Treatment, which, we are told, appears to be genuine, and agrees with most of the Par- ticulars in our last. He says he was carried off from the Sands of Leith by four Persons, whom he took to be Englishmen ; that, two Days after, they robb'd him of his Money ; that after they left him near York, a Man he had not seen before, carried him to a House, and shut him up in close Confinement in a Room ; after which three Men came, one of them under the Character of a Justice of Peace, and the other two of Merchants, who obliged him to kneel, and swear, in a most solemn Manner, never to reveal what had happpn'd to him ; that, during his Confinement, one, who call'd himself Robertson, frequently attended him ; that the said Ro- bertson pawn'd his Watch, Coat, for two Guineas, leaving the following Direction on the Bundle with his Cloaths, To Andrew Robertson, at the Bird and Bush, New- castle, ' till called for and that they importuned him seve- ral Times to indent for Jamaica, which he would not consent to. : COUNTRY NE \ VS. Bristol, April i 3. Letters this Week from Barbadoes advise, that there lud been a great Drought in that Island, insomuch that they had . ot been favour'd with one Shower of Rain for almost three Months, which had destroy'd their Crops of Sugar. And that, as this Drought had reach'd most of the other Islands in the West- Indies, the Ships would be obliged to wait ' till the next Crop for their Lading. Saturday last the Assizes ended at Taunton, ( which held from Monday, and the greatest Number of Priso- ners known in the Memory of Man) when eight Per- sons received Sentence of Death, viz. Samuel Pitman, Jesse Pitman, Joseph Applebee, Benjamin Priscomb, and John Pointing, convicted severally of Horse stealing ; Thomas Bridges and William Furge for Burglary ; and William White for stealing two Oxen, Richard Day, who was convicted last Assizes for Horse stealing, pleaded his Majesty's Pardon, on C0n- dition of Transportation for fourteen years LONDON.

The Corpse of his Royal Highness was met at the Church Door by the Dean and Prebendaries, attended by the Gentlemen of the Choir and King's Scholars, who fell into the Procession immediately before the Officer of Arms, with Wax Tapers in their Hands, and properly habited, and began the common Burial Service ( no An- them being composed on this Occasion) two Drums beat- ing a Dead March during the Service. Upon entering the Chapel, the Royal Body was placed on Tressels, the Crown and Cushion at the Head, and the Canopy held over, the Supporters of the Pall standing by ; the Chief Mourner and his two Supporters seated in Chairs at the Head of the Corpse ; the Lords Assistants, Master of the Horfe, Groom of the Stole, and Lords of the Bedcham- ber on both Sides ; the four White Staff Officer- at the Feet, the others seating themselves in the Stalls on each Side the Chapel ; the Bishop of Rochester, Dean of Westminster then read the first Part of the Burial Service, after which the Corpse was carried to the Vault, preced- ed by the White Staff Officers, the Master of the Horse, Chief Mourner, his Supporters and Assistants, Garter King at Arms going before them. When they had placed themselves near the Vault, and the Corpse being laid upon a Machine even with the Pavement of the Chapel, was by Degrees let down into the Vault, when the Bi- shop of Rochester went on with the Service ; which be- ing ended, Garter proclaimed his late Royal Highness's Titles in the following Manner : Thus it hath pleafid Almighty God to take out of this transi- tory Life to bis Divine Mercy the most Illustrious Frederick Prince of WaleS, & c. & c. The Nobility and Attendants returned in the same Order they proceeded, at Half an Hour after Nine; so that the whole Ceremony lasted an Hour, There was the utmost Decorum observed ; and what is remarkable, though the Populace were extremely noisy before the Procession began, there was during the whole, a Silence, that, if possible, added to the Solemnity of so awful a Sight. The Guards, who each of them held two lighted Flambeaux during the whole Time, behaved so well, that we do not hear of any Accidents happening among the Spectators that are remarkable. As soon as the Procession began to move, two Rockets were fired off in Old Palace- Yard as a Signal for the Guns in the Park to fire, which was followed by those of the Tower; during which Time the Great Bells of Westminster, and St. Paul's Cathedral tolled, as did those of most of the Churches in London. The Soldiers were kept on Guard all Saturday Night, and on Sunday at the South- East Door of the Abbey, and on the Scaffolding in Palace- Yard. And yesterday Morning the Workmen began to take down the scaf- folding. The following Inscription was engrav'd oa a Silver Plate and affix'd to the Coffin of his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales.

We are inform'd that a Dispute lately arose between the Deputy Earl Marshal, the Dean and Chapter Westminster, and the Board of Works, in relation to the Property of the several Erections, & c. prepared 0r brought into the Abbey and Henry the Seventh's Chapel, which ran so high, that a Council was summon'd to meet on purpose at the Cockpit, and it was determin'd in Favour of the Dean and Chapter.

Dublin Castle, Signed by Order, q March, 1770. ISHAM BAGGS. WHEREAS George Wright, formerly of the Parish of St. Anne's, Westminister, Corn- Candler, and late of Panton Square, died in February 1749, who had a Brother named John Wright, bred a Gardener-, who has not been heard of many Years; any Person that will give Infor- mation whether the said John Wright he living or dead, and if dead, whether he left any Wife, Child, or Children, shall re- ceive Five Pounds from Mr. Tetlow, of Piccadilly, one of the Executors: And if the said John Wright, or ( if dead) his Representatives, will apply to the said Mr. Tetlow; to Mr. Hopkins, Attorney at law, in Stanhope Street; or to Mr. Edward Wright of Greenford, they may hear of some- thing to their Advantage. All Persons who have legal Demands 0n the Estate of the said George Wright, are desir'd to apply t0 the said Mr. Tet- low for Payment thereof. This is to inform the Publick, In Justice to Mr. Benjamin Lhuile, Sen. of Arundel- Street in the Strand, Jeweller, THAT it was the Son of the said Mr. Lhuile that was declar'd a Bankrupt, and therefore he takes this Method to acquaint such of those that had Dealings with the said Son, that the Words Junior and late of Arundel- Street, ought to have been inserted, to have distinguish'd the two Persons. APerson that left his Business in the West of Eng- land for a bad State of Health and had Conversation at a Distance, some people said it was from the Air, other said it was from People thinking too intensly on him, and making Use of the effuvia of dead Bodies against him, which they call fighting, by converging with him now at London, begs the Favour they will either keep themselves clean of what they calls Bulls Hides, or think no more of it: He lost a Bro- ther by the same Art; He finds it an Advantage to take the Conversation in Writing, and therefore judges it is not acci- dental but done by Art.

Witness my Hand, April 4, 1751. JOHN SMITH. Now in the Hands of Mr. Thomas Messenger, of Market Bosworth in Leicestershire, AMost beautiful fine strong Grey Horse, fourteen Hands three Inches high.

' I'his Day the Count de Riche- court, Envoy Extraordinary from their Imperial Ma- yesties, dispatch'd a Courier 10 Vienna, with the Result of the Conferences he has lately had with the Duke of Newcastle, which turn'd on divers important Objects, and in particular on the late Declaration of the Elector of Cologn. Those Conferences were also relative to the Election of a King of the Romans, and the amicable Methods fittest to be taken, in order to get over the Difficulties concerning the Form and Manner of pro- ceeding to that Election ; To. which had all the States of the Empire will be given to understand, That their Imperial Majesties in Conjunction with the King and other Members of the Germanick Body, never proposed to act otherwise than in the Manner and Form most agreeable to the fundamental Constitutions of Germany, and the Rights of the several Colleges of that illustrious Body ; and that they will constantly proceed on the same Principles in all ulterior Steps that may be taken by them in this AfFair. Mr. Onslow Burrish, his Ma- jesty's Minister at Ratisbon, has Orders to talk in this S. rain, both in publick and in private, on the Election of a King of the Romans, as also whenever this Affair shall be brought on the Carpet in the Electoral College. Yesterday being the Birth- Day of his Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland, who then enter'd into the 31st Year of his Age, his Royal Highness had a great Levee at his Apartments at St. James's in the Morning, and at Noon his Majesty receiv'd the Compliments of the No- bility, on that Occasion. There was no Drawing- Room, nor Ball at Night. His Majesty has presented their Royal Highnesses Prince George and Prince Edward with four fine Horses out of the Mews at Charing cross. The King has been pleased to constitute and appoint his Grace ths Duke of Bedford, one of his Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, to be Lord Lieutenant and Custos Rotulorum of the County of Devon, and of the City of Exeter and County of the same, in the room of the Earl of Orford, deceas'd. Last Sunday Dr. Lee kiss'd his Majesty's and her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales's Hand, on his be- ing appointed Treasurer of the Houshold to her Royal Highness. As did likewise James Cresset, Esq; on his being ap- pointed Secretary to her Royal Highness, in the room of Thomas Potter, Esq; who has resign'd, James Shaw, Esq; is appointed Deputy- Ranger of.

Ccnclusion of Newmarket Races: On Friday last the following five Years old Mares started for me Prince's Purse of 1oo Guineas, Weight ten Stone. The Odds at starting were Seven to Four on the Field against Mr. Duncombe, and Five to Two but Mr. Hales's Mare won. The same Day a Match for Fifty Guineas, ( play or pay) was run between Lord March's Chesnut Gelding, , nd Capt. Vernon's Chesnut Horse, ( late Mr. Martin- dale's Hector) which was won with Ease by Captain Vernon : The Match was rode by the Owners. The Match between the Duke of Devonshire and Lord Gower was not run. On Saturday last the following five Years old Horses started for the Subscription purse, Weight ten- Stone, Mr. Robinson's Sampson, got by ' Lord Portmore's Black horse, Oroonoko, got by Crab Mr. Panton's Bay Horse, Drudge, got by Crab Lord Gower's Bay Horse Squirrel, got by a Son ofthe Godolpin Arabian. — The first Heat was a long Time very severely disputed to the rising Ground at running up 10 the Ending Post between Sampson and Squirrel; when the superior Strength of Sampson prevail'd, to the great Joy of the Yorkshire Gentlemen, who had vast Sums depending on him. Lord Portmore's Horse did not take the Rest, but ran kindly, and was easily beat the second Heat. The Odds at Starting were Gold to Silver on Sampson, and after the first Heat the Betts were even on the Field against him, owing to Mr. Panton's Horse not having run for the first Heat, who was expected to make a better Figure than he did He was sold before Starting to Sir John Phillips for JJO Guineas. We hear that a certain Person in the Sporting way has been- excluded from being concerned in subscribing to Plates at . Newmarket on any future Occasions; and that the Noblemen at the late Meeting there, ( where his flagrant and notorious Behaviour was exceedingly con- spicuous) have all agreed to prevent his wicked Designs at every Horse Race & c. where they have Influence. Private Letters by Yesterday's French Mail bring Ad- vice, that the Great Mogul's Troops have actually made themselves Masters of Pondicherry. Letters from Armenian Merchants in Persia, to their Correspondents in Poland, give a most deplorable Ac- count of the Situation of Affairs in that distracted Kingdom. The great and magnificent City of Ispahan now makes a dismal Figure, some Streets being depopu- lated, and others reduced to Heaps of Rubbish. As the Kingdom is divided between two Rivals, Shah Doub and Shah Noub, and that whoever is Master of the Ca- pital is not able to secure it on every Side against the Attacks of his Adversary ( the City being twelve Miles in Circumference) the wretched Inhabitants are alter- nately exposed to the Pillage of both Parties, as one or the other gains the Ascendant. According to these Let- ters, scarcely a Week passes without some Palace at Ispahan being plunder'd, burnt or demolish'd. The stately Buildings with which Shah Abbas the Great bad embellish'd that Metropolis, are quite defaced by the horrid Devastations made by the Soldiers. Shah Doub had prevailed with his Men to spare the antient Pleasure Palace of Shah Abbas, call'd Tschargab, which the Persians look'd upon as a Miracle of Art: But Shah Noub having gained a little Advantage, which enabled him to draw near the City, he abandon'd that Palace to the Fury and Rapaciousness of his Soldiers, who tho- roughly plunder'd it, and then left not one Stone upon another. All the Arts and Sciences which had flourish'd in Persia ' till the Reign of the unfortunate Shah Hussein, either languish, or are totally stagnated: No Art nor Business can be safely followed, but such as are needful in the Armies, ur serve to supply the Luxury of the Camps. Every Thing bends to the capricious Will of the Soldiers, who rule the Nation with a Rod of Iron. The People hope for no Deliverance, except from some sudden Revolution, which, in destroying the contend- ing Parties, might bring the Kingdom under the Yoke of some neighbouring Power. But such a Revolution does not seem to be at Hand, because the Powers in Asia bordering on Persia have an Interest in the Con- tinuance of the Civil War, which leaves that Kingdom a Prey to itself, and hinders it from hatching Designs against any of its Neighbours. According to some Advices from Turky, by the Way of Vienna, the Hostilities that have lately happen'd be- tween the Crim Tartars and the Russian Cossacks, have been occasion'd by Smuggling; a Practice which both Parties seem resolv'd to support in Despight of each other. - Any Cause or Motive, but the true one, will pass Muster there. By Letters ftom Copenhagen we find, that the Danes are beginning to rival this Nation in the Crime of Sui- cide, no less than five in one Week having dispatch'd , two cutting their own Throats and three drowning themselves ; but in order to deter others from copying such Examples of execrable He- roism, the Government order'd their Bodies to be car- ried out of Town in Carts, attended by one of the Exe- cutioner's Servants, and buried under the Gallows, The poor. Wretches could not have the benefit of a Verdict of Lunacy, because there are no Juries in that Country ; but whether their Goods and chattels are forfeited to the Crown, does not appear by this Account. Letters from Paris say, that a Negotiation is on the Tapis between the French Court and the Elector of Co- logne that his Most Christian Majesty offers to account with his Electoral Highness for the Arrears of a Subsidy due by a former Trea',, and to conclude a new one, by virtue of which he will engage to pay . the Elector a Sub- sidy of 2.70,000 German Florins during four Years, i. e. about 40,000!. Sterling Annually; in Considera- tion of which his Electoral Highness is to maintain a Body of 6000 of his Troops in Lower Alsace, to be at the Disposal of France and her Allies. They also talk of some secret Articles in this new Treaty, but will not give us any Light into them on account of their being secret. Last Friday Morning the Worcester Stage Coach was robb'd by a single Highwayman, who next Day robb'd two Ladies in a Post Chaise near Staines, but being soon after observ'd to go into the Swan Inn at Staines, he was there taken. On Friday Night last as the Right Hon. Stephen Fox, Esq; Secretary of War, and his Lady, were returning to Holland House beyond Kensington, they were stopp'd in their Chariot near Hyde Park, and robb'd by a single Highwayman, who made clear off- with his Booty. The following Persons have been committed by William Hammond, Esq; to the New- Gaol, South- wark, viz. Joseph White, charg'd with committing divers Rob- beries on the River Thames. John Phillips, charg'd on the Oath of John Ford, with stealing four Dozen of Glass bottles, the Property of Mr. Gerard Vanhorn, in the Parish of St. Saviour, Southwark.
