The London Evening- Post Numb. 3^ 70 From SATURDAY April 27, to TUESDAY April 30, 1751. Yesterday arriv'd the Mails from France and Holland. Stockholm, April 23. T is worthy of Observation, that the Act of Assurance which the King solemnly exe- cuted upon his Accession to the Throne ( to maintain the present Constitution of the Kingdom) he deliver'd him- self to M. Panin, the Russian Minister, and at the same Time expresses himself in the following Manner: ' I hope that this Act will convince her Imperial Majesty of all the Russias of my Sentiments towards the Swedish Nation, and of the Desire which I have, that they may enjoy the Sweets of Peace, by my endeavouring to maintain the most perfect Harmony with the neigh- bouring Powers of this Kingdom, and by avoiding, in the Manner I now do, to give them the least Cause of Umbrage.' Leghorn, April 17. The Master of a Ship arriv'd from Alicant reports, that two large Men of War were sail'd from that Port against the Corsairs of Barbary, attended with feveral Xebecks. very well mann'd; and that the Court of spain had sent Orders to several Sea- Ports to fit out all the Ships that were fit for chasing, in order to go in Pursuit of those Pirates ; besides which it was expect- ed a very strong Squadron would be sent to cruize upon the Coast of Barbary. Genoa, April zo. The Master of a French Ship lately arriv'd from the Coast of Provence reports, that on the 11th Instant Orders came from Court to Toulon to send out forthwith the Triton of 64 Guns, and the Gracious Frigate of 14 Guns; but their Destination is not known, as the Captains of them are not to open their Orders ' till they get into a certain Latitude. Other Advices from Toulon inform us, that they have lately launch'd an 8o Gun Ship, and call'd her the Thunderer : They continue building with all possible Di- ligence ; the Ships actually on the Stocks are call'd the Redoubtable and the Warrior of 74 Guns each, the Lion and the Stag of 64, the Rose Frigate of 36, the Serpent and the Cunning Xebeques of 18 and zo Guns. They receive now and then large Quantities of Timber and other Naval Stores to Toulon, so that we may infer the Court designs to have a strong Fleet in the Mediter- ranean. Vienna, April 14. By the List of the Empress's Forces just publish'd it appears, that they actually consist of 56 Regiments of Infantry, 18 of Cuirassiers, 13 of Dra- goons, and ten of Hussars; besides four Regiments of Carlstadians, and two of Warasdins, iz Troops of Hussars on the Repartition of Hungary, three Regi- ments of Sclavonians and one Regiment of Hussars on the Repartition of the County of Sirmia: Making in all about 170,000 Men. We are assured that the Pope has granted an Indulto, authorizing her Imperial Majesty to levy the Tenth of all Ecclesiastical Revenues in the Hereditary Provinces. Dusseldorp, May 1. The british Court having lately offer'd some additional Advantages to such of the Pro- testants of Switzerland as have a Mind to settle in Pen- sylvania, two Vessels are gone down the Rhine with a Number of those Protestants, in order to carry them to Holland, in their Way to England. Utrecht, May 6. This Day Letters from Petersbourg dated the 16th of last Month, came to Hand: They take Notice, that they had but just then receiv'd the News of the King of Sweden's Death by a Courier from Stockholm, and mention nothing farther because the Interval between the Arrival of the Courier and the De- parture of the Post was too short to know what pass'd at Court on the Receipt of that News: So that we must " Wait ' til next Post, which will bring us Letters of , the 19th of April. Paris, April 10. The Earl of Albemarle, Embassador from the King of Great Britain, who was preparing to set out for England, has receiv'd Dispatches from thence, which oblige him to suspend his Departure ' till further Orders.

[ An Extract of a Letter from Tring in Hertfordshire, April 24. 4 On Monday last a shocking Affair happen'd here, A Person who keeps a Publick House had given out he was bewitch'd by one Osborne and his Wife, of Long Marston ( inoffensive People, near 7o Years of Age) and had it cried at several Market Towns, that they were to be tried by Ducking the Day aforesaid ; when, about Noon, a great Concourse of People, to the Number of five thousand, appear'd in the Town, The Officers of the Parish had privately remov'd the poor old Couple in the dead Time of the Night into the Church, as a Place of Safety. The Mob demanded these unhappy Wretches at the Workhouse, but on being acquainted they were not there, they pull'd down the Pales and Walls, broke all the Windows, and de- molished- a Part of the House: After searching the Chimnies and Cielings without Effect, they seized the Governor, hawled him down to the Stream, and de- clar'd they would drown him, and fire the whole Town, unless they deliver'd these poor Creatures into their Hands. ' The. Mob ran up and down with Straw in their Hands, and were going to put their Threats into Execution, had they not found the two unhappy Wretches, who were conceal'd in the Vestry Room at the End of the Church: they immediately seiz'd these miserable Creatures, stripp'd them stark naked, tied their Thumbs to their Toes, dragg'd them two Miles in this shameful Manner, and threw them into a muddy Stream. After much duck- ing and ill Usage, the poor old Woman was thrown quite naked on the Bank, at- most choak'd with Mud, and expir'd in a few Mi- nutes, being kick'd and beat with Sticks even after she was dead ; and the poor Man lies dangerously ill of the Bruises he received- To add to their Barbarity, they ' put the dead Witch ( as they called her) in Bed with her Husband, and tied them together.' - Extract of a Letter from Tring, April 27. 4 On Thursday last Joseph Atkinson, esq; Coroner ' for the County of hertford, with a jury of twelve April 19, 1751 GENERAL POST- OFFICE.

Inscrib'd to the Memory of Laurence Coster, a Native of the Town of Harlem in Holland, first Inven- tor of the mysteriouS Art of Printing, Anno 1420. THOU learn'd Inventor of that curious Art, Which with true Wisdom's Physic cures ths Heart, All hail ! when thick'ning Darkness threaten'd all, Thou fill'dst with Splendor the benighted Ball; Drov'st far the Shades, which Dulness wou'd have spread, And mad'st fair Learning rear her laurell'd Head: All hail to thee! whose quick unbounded Mind Cou'd for a second Chaos Order find. The Grecian Muses, but for thy kind Aid, Had slumber'd, known to few, in Clasic Shade ; Monkish Supiness, and illit'rate Pride, Had wrap'd in gloom the wretched World beside : Thou frustrate mad'st the Negromancer's Skill, And open'd Knowledge to th' industrious Will. May round thy Tomb the Muses sing their Lays, And give to thy immortal Merit Praise ! What pity Homer had for ever slept In some dull Convent, or a Casket kept, That Virgil, Horace, had by few been read, And Scholiasts broke secure old Priscian's Head: Yet this had been had thou ne'er seen the Light,') And all been wrap'd in one Saturnian Night; S Thou said'st. Let Order be and all was bright. J. Then Superstition check'd her artful Lore, Priests modest grew, Monks fabulous no more Fair Truth regain'd her antient radiant Throne, And Knaves and Ignorance exploded mourn. Such were Directors then of Learning's Store Such now are G— n— rs of India's Ore: Heav'd into Post by Party, Folly, Pride, While it's due Trust to Merit is denied ; Unequal sit, and with a shameless Brow Look down upon Fidelity below, Contemptuous — knowing whence their Honours rose— From Debts, from Bribery, and jarring Foes. Like haughty Popes, oppressive Captains now With Pride or Spleen make all beneath them bow With Insolence the Want of Worth supply, And arm'd by Pow'r Remonstrances defy. Wills Narrative pathetic shews, that Man Is capable of the most savage Plan ; Can in anothers mis'ry take Delight, And gratisfy at Life's Expence his Spite : Can ev'n deprive of Joy fair Innocence , And Tyrant for meet Spleen and Whim commence. Here let me praise thee, noble Bath ! who stood The gen'rous Patron of the public Good ; Oppos'd th' Advances of unlawful Sway, And drove encroaching Clouds from Learning's Day ; Would have the Font or Knowledge unconfin'd, And Liberty the Right of all Mankind : Superior to each low unmanly Art, Fair Truth, thou judg'st alone could win the Heart Nor feard'st the Press wou'd injure thy just Claim To a bright Station in the Shrine of Fame. Watson, I wou'd not pass thy Merit's Praise But consecrate thy Name in tuneful Lays; Who shew'dst thy Gratitude to that wise Mind, Which bless'd with artful Printing first Mankind, At length let England's noble Genius rise, And ev'ry selfish Interest despise ; Let Arrogance be curb'd, and bloated scorn, Fair Virtue have the Name of Nobly born ; Let Wealth and Knowledge spread as free as Wind, And England be rever'd of all Mankind.
