The London Evening- Post Numbs 3710 From TUESDAY July 30, to THURSDAY August 1, 1751. Yesterday arriv'd the Mail from France. Vienna, July 21. N Monday last the Emperor accompanied by Prince Charles of Lorrain, and attended by several of the principal Lords of the Court, arriv'd in this City; and this Morning his Imperial Majesty set out, with the Prince his Brother, on his Return to Presbourg. In Consequence of the Scheme which is on Foot for the bet- ter Regulation of the Commerce of Hungary, Magazines are going to be erected there in divers Places, in which are t0 be deposited all the surplus Grain, and other un- perishable Productions of that Kingdom, and the Duties that used to be paid on all Corn, Wine and Cattle, are going to be considerably lessened, in order to facilitate, by that Means, the Sale of such Part of those Commo- dities as shall be transported from Hungary into the He- reditary Countries. Francfort, July 29. Several Prussian Officers are lately arrived in this Neighbourhood, to raise Recruits in their respective Regiments. Rome, July 17. We have receiv'd Advice hereof a smart Skirmish, which lately happened near Tronto, be- tween a Detachment of the Soldiers who are appoinied to guard the Coasts of the Adriatick Sea, and a Gang of Smugglers of. about 18 or 20 ; in which several were wounded on both Sides, but at last the Soldiers put the Smugglers to Flight, and made six of them Prisoners, who were immediately confined in the Prisons of Fermo. Parma, July 17. Publick Prayers are still continued in all out Churches, in order to implore the Almighty to send down some Showers of Rain to refresh the Fruits of the Earth, which are already greatly damaged by the excessive Drought which has raged here for a consider- able Time. Parts, aug. 2. From Amiens we have Advice, that on the 17th of last Month they had a terrible Storm,' with Hail, Rain and Thunder: One House in the Town was set on Fire by Lightning, and the Flames spreading to the adjacent Houses, twelve of them were reduced to Ashes. Some of the Hail stones weighed four Ounces. Paris, Aug. 6. Last Monday we had a violent Hurri- cane, attended with Hail, Thunder and Lightning, whereby a Barn at the Village called Gros Caillous was set on Fire and entirely consumed, and several Trees were torn up by the Roots in the Wood of Boulogne, as also at the Petit Cours and in the Elysian Fields. Some little Damage was likewise done at Nanteuil by the Lightning, but not worth mentioning. COUNTRY NEWS. Newcastle, July 17. We hear from Kendal in West- moreland, that last Week died there Mr. John Wilson, a noted Botanist of that Place, and Author of a Synopsis ef British Plants after Mr. Ray's Method. He had uncom- mon natural Parts, which ( without the Advantage of a learned Education) by his own Industry in Study and Application, he had so much improv'd as to become, perhaps, one of the most knowing Herbalists of his Time. Last Week as Sir Henry Gray, Bart. was fowling near Cheviot Hills, he shot a very large Eagle, which had seized his Dog in its Talons, and was endeavouring to carry it off, had he not put a stop to its Flight. The neighbouring People Have suffer'd great Damage from this Eagle among their Lambs, & c. for some Time past ; one Person in particular having lost Lambs to the Va- lue of six Pounds. Yesterday se'nnight, at the Assizes at Hull, W--- S was found guilty of uttering Guineas, know- ing them to be impair'd, and received Sentence of Im- prisonment for one Year, and to give Security for his good Behaviour for one Year more, himself in 2000 1. and his Securities in 1000I. each, to be given before the Lord Mayor of London. The Number of diminish'd Guineas he offer'd to Mr. Blount for Bills was 379. Salisbury, July 29. Monday last the Rev. Mr. Gilbert was elected Canon of this Cathedral, in the room of the Rev. Mr. Canon Bampton, deceas'd. LONDON. Some inquisitive Emissaries, who thought long before now to report the Sorrow and Chagrin with which those Persons of Distinction were tormented, who lately quitted a superior Sphere of Action, are utterly disappointed; since these high mettled People not only keep up their Spirits, and appear as much as ever in Publick, but also take the air at Kensington with as much Satisfaction as any of those they left behind them. There are Letters in Town which say, that two Men of War, one of seventy the other of sixty Guns, were upon the Gold Coast of Africa in the Month of February last, where they practised all the Measures that French Com- plaisance could suggest, to corrupt the honest old Negro Chief; but John valued himself upon being an English- man, and being quite tired out with their Compliments, replied at last to them in Bullets ; so that it is plain Nobody can deprive us of that trade but ourselves. Some private Letters from Lisbon mention a Concern of great Confequence, that has not yet taken Air. It seems that his most Faithful Majesty has thought proper to make several Alterations, from Motives that are not yet explained; and, amongst the rest, has order'd some. Gentlemen to go and divert themselves in the Country, ' till he shall have occasion for their Service. Last Saturday died, sincerely lamented, the Rev. Mr. Aaron Thompson, aged Sixty- nine, Vicar Broad Chalk in the County of Wilts and Diocese of Sarum. He was a sound and universal Scholar, of the strictest Piety, and firmest Integrity ; had no Superior, and very few, if any Equal : This great and Good Man, deser- ving the utmost Dignity in the Church, calmly, and without Envy, beheld many superlatively his Inferiors, hoisted to the highest Pinnacle of Preferment; a gla- ring Instance how much corrupt Party and sordid Inte- rest overbalance the profoundest Learning and purest Orthodoxy, which ought to be the shining Character of every Prelate: But he is gone, where all Inequalities will be adjusted by that Great King of Kings, who is no Respecter of Persons. Last Saturday, at York Assize, a sort of a French strolling Doctor, who had taken up his Abode, for near six Months, in a Village not far from Richmond, and there began to practise, brought his Action against a Farmer for Business done for his Family, and in Court produced the following Bill. 13 Dec. 1750.

Yesterday being the Birth- Day of her Royal Highness the Princefs Augusta, eldest Daughter of his late Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, who enter'd into the 15th Year of her Age, his Majesty receiv'd the Compliments of the Nobility and Gentry at his Palace at Kensington, on that Occasion; as did also her Royal Highness the Princess Dowager of Wales, at Leicester House. Yesterday Orders were sent to General Belfour at Woolwich, to acquaint him that a General Review of the whole Train of Artillery will be made on Monday next on Charlton Heath. The Train consists of Bom- bardiers, Engineers, Gunners, Matrosses, Cadets and Pioneers, who are all to be new cloathed; at which will be present the Prince of Wales, Prince Edward, Duke of Cumberland, and most of the General Officers of the Army. On Monday last his Majesty was pleased to appoint Hugh Lee, Esq; to be a Major in Col. Churchill's Re- giment of Foot, in the room of Major Burd, deceas'd. The same Day his Majesty was pleased to appoint George Osborne, Esq; to be a Captain in the same Re- giment, : n the room Of Major Lee. And also to appoint Alexander How, Esq; to be a Lieutenant in the same Regiment, in the room of Capt. George Osborne. The Lords of Admiralty have appointed Mr. Collet to to be Senior Messenger of the Admiralty, in the room of Mr. John Wooley, now Porter of Greenwich Hos- pital. And Mr. Thomas Traunter to succeed Mr. Collet as Junior Messenger in that Office. On Saturday last Capt. Baker, Commander of the Stafford Indiaman, lately arriv'd from China, was mar- ried to Miss Small, Daughter of the Lieutenant- Gover- nor of St. Helena ; a Lady of fine Accomplishments and a large Fortune. Last Sunday was married at Windsor, Charles Bur- goine, of Oxfordshire, Esq; to Miss Henrietta Small- brooke, Daughter of Capt. John Smallbrooke, of Col. Forbes's Regiment of Foot; a beautiful young Lady with a large Fortune. On Tuesday Night died at his House in Walbrook, Mr. Sparkes, Partner with Mr. Dukerty, an eminent Merchant of that Place. Yesterday died at his HoUse in Tyburn Road, Mr. Spilman, an eminent Conveyancer, reputed to be worth 20,0oo 1. The Rev. Mr. Henry Shepherd, Chaplain to his Grace the Duke of Queensberry, is presented to the Living of Friskney, in the County and Diocese of Lincoln, worth 2001. per Annum. Last Tuesday the Rev. Mr. Archer was presented by the Right Hon. the Lord How, to the Rectory of St. Martin's le Cray, in the County of Suffolk, worth 3001, per Annum. The Rev; John Noyes Jones M. A. was a few Days since presented to the united Livings of Hilve; aliaS Culve and Strington, both in the County of Somerset and Diocese of Bath and Wells worth 1801. pet Annum. On Saturday the Assizes ended at Stafford at which David Crosley and John Platt, for House- breaking; and John Wakefield, for Horse- stealing, remov'd from War- wick, were capitally convicted. William Lovatt; for stealing four Snuff- Boxes, & c. and Edward Tomlinson, for stealing a Saddle are order'd for Transportation Thomas Foster, John Murrall, Thomas Pulford, Tho- mas Baddeley, and Sarah Brookes, condEmn'd and re- priev'd last Assizes, are now order'd to be transported for fourteen Years Mr. Taylor, a Clergyman, was tried on an lndictment for writing and publishing a fcandalous Libel on the Go- vernment, which was a Letter to recommend a Person who was at the Battle of Preston Pans and Culloden in order that such Person, on the traiterous Merits men- tion'd in the Letter, might ask Alms of People Who were thought to be disaffected to his Majesty's Person and Go- vernment. The Trial lasted from SiX o'Clock on Satur- day Morning ' till Seven in the Evening. The Jury were out near five Hours, and then found the Defendant Guilty ; and was sentenced to be two Years imprison'd, to pay a Fine of 3001. and give Security for his good Behaviour for seven Years; himself to be bound in 1000l and his two Sureties in 500 1. each. Samuel Higgins, Stephen Higgins, and Thomas Wig- gin, concern'd in a Riot at Walsall the 29th of May 1749, have given Bail to appear at the King's Bench the first Day of next Term. No Bill was found against the Persons for attempting to pull down a Meeting- hOuse that was building there ; but we hear they are to pay the Sum of 101. and the Building is to be erected at a farther Distance from the Church. A Person, said to be a Dissenter, went into a Com- pany, in hopes they would drink the Pretender's Health, that he might inform against them for so doing. He lead the Way by drinking it first himself, Whereupon the Company broke up and inform'd against him ; and at the said Assizes he was sentenccd to be imprisoned six Months. Wike Hill was indiCted for following the Trade of a Tallowchandler, and fined Forty Shillings. Last Tuesday Evening the Assizes ended at Hertford, when Edward Mead, for a Burglary, and Thomas Colley, for the Murder of Ruth Osborne, at Tring, re- ceiv'd Sentence of Death. It appeared on the Trial of Colley, which lasted many Hours, that some of the Neighbours thinking the Deceas'd was a Witch, and her Husband, John Osborne, a Wizard, they had it cried in three Market Towns, that they were to be publickly duck'd on Mon- day the 2id of April last, in Tring, which brought to- gether a Mob of upwards of 10,000 People, who went t0 the Workhouse to demand the poor wretches, ands not finding them there, pull'd down Part of the House„ and was going to set Fire to what was standing ; but be- ing inform'd that the Man and Woman were in the Vestry Room adjoining to the Church, : hey went there, broke it open, seiz'd and stripp'd them, and tied their Thumbs and Great toes together, then tied them up in two Sheets, and carried them to Marlston Meer, in the Parish of Tring, where the poor old Woman, aged seventy, expired, by Suffocation in the Mud and Water, the Meer not being above three Feet deep. Edward Mead was repriev'd before the Judge left the Town, and Thomas Colley is order'd for Execution, pur- suant to his Sentence. The Trial of Henry Worster, indicted for being con- cern'd in the said riotous Assembly, and who was also in Custody, was put off ' till next Assizes. There are many more Persons indicted who were con-, cern'd in the said cruel Affair, and Warrants are issued for apprehending them. At the Assizes at Buckingham; held for that County, before Lord Chief Justice Willes and Mr. Justice Foster, eight Prisoners were tried, three of whom were cast for Transportation, and five acquitted. At the Assizes at Northampton, before Lord Chief Baron Parker and Mr. Justice Wright, one person was capitally convicted, viz. John Price for a Burglary, At the Assizes at Oakham, in Rutland, which ended on Saturday, only two Persons were tried, and order'd to be whipp'd. At the Assizes at Worcester, which prov'd a Maiden one, three were order'd for Transportation ; and a Wo- man, convided of Petit Larceny, who fell in Labour in Court, was sentenced to be whipp'd as soon as her Month is up. Last Sunday Morning as Mr. Walker, a Dissenting Minister, Master of the Academy at Plaisterer's Hall in Addle Street, was going to Kingston, he was stopp'd on Putney- Heath by two Highwaymen, who robb'd him of a Guinea and some Silver. He had a watch and two Rings, which they refused; but they told him they hoped that he thought he was very civilly used. Yesterday Morning early four Fellows, who the Night before had robb'd several Persons in Whitechapel, were taken in Half- Moon- Alley, Whitechapel; and the same Day three of them were committed to New- Prison, and the other to Clerkenwell Bridewell, he being admitted an Evidence, WAKEFIELD RACES.

Preceptor to their Royal Highnesses the Duke, the Princess Mary of Hesse, and the Queen of Denmark, LONDON. Yesterday as Moses Mendes, Esq; was returning from his Seat at Mitcham, he was attacked between Clapham and Tooting by six Footpads, who presenting their Pis- tols to his Breast, robb'd him of his Watch and some Silver. Yesterday Margaret Johnson and Mary Maccartney were; committed by Henry Fielding, Esq, the one to the Gatehouse and the other t0 New Prison, for Coining. Yesterday a Sharper came to the Coach and Horses Alehouse in Burlington Street, and order'd the Mistress to send a Pot of Beer 10 Lord Hinton Pawlett's, in the same Street, with Change for a Guinea, which she did accordingly, thinking he liv'd there, being without his Hat ; out before the Boy got there, the Sharper met him, took the Beer and Change, and gave him a Guinea, as the Boy thought, in return, bidding him fetch a Pot of ' I'wopenny, and make Haste the Boy carried it, but finding the Servants knew nothing of the Matter, he went home again; when his Mistress beginning to sus- pect the Cheat, examined what the Boy had given her, which prov'd to be only a Shilling gilt. Last Sunday in the Afternoon, as some Company were visiting at Mr. Fleming's in Mount- Street, a little Miss who was one of the Company, and a little Boy belong- ing to Mr. Fleming, were at play while the Company were at Tea ; the Boy found a Pistol in the Beauset, and said he would shoot her, and accordingly fired it off, and shot the Girl in the Shoulder, of which Wound she died on Monday Night; and Yesterday the Jury sat on the Body, and brought it in Accidental Death. On Tuesday Night a Fire broke out in the House of Mr. Eades, in Cherry Garden- Street, Rotherhith, which burnt Part of the House; but by timely Assistance it was happily prevented from communicating to several old Timber Houses adjoining. The Chard, late Leach, belonging to Bristol, is cut off by the Negroes on the Coast of AFrica, the Master kill'd. A Dutch Ship, of about 140 Tons, is lost off White- haven, not without Sufpicion of Fraud, there having been a Hole in her Bottom. To the AUTHOR, & c. SIR, ISuppose it will be allow'd that Gaming is a Vice very pernicious to the People, and that, therefore, very severe Laws have been made to suppress it. What then must we think of that Administration which condemns one Sort of Gaming, and establishes another Sort of worse Consequence. There seem to be many weighty Objections against the Method of raising Money by way of Lottery. To name a few of the most obvious; it is taking Advantage of the Simplicity of the lower People; it is borrowing of such as can least spare Money to lend ; It is deluding them out of their industry, and taking them off from their Labour by vain Hopes; it is the Ruin of at least six out of every seven who venture ; it is diverting a vast Sum of Money out of the Course of Trade and Business ; it is giving an Itch of Gaming to Thousands who had it not before ; it is exposing the weak and the poorer Sort, to be devour'd by the Dealers in Tickets. If only the Rich were to be drawn in by that silly atheistical Argument, of being in Fortune's Way, and that other of, he that has no Ticket can't possibly get a Prize should have been silent ; but I could wish the honest lower Sort of People would consider that they are all under the Providence of God, as well as the Rich, and much happier ; and that he will undoubtedly give them, at all Times, what is best for them, be it Poverty or Riches, without their exposing themselves to Ruin, by foolishly venturing that little they are already blessed with, t0 covetous Hopes to be their own Carvers. It is for the Sake of such honest People, that I have made the following true Computations, which I hope you will print along with this Letter. I fear that this Computation will neither be read nor understood by those for whom it was principally made, and therefore I would beg the Favour 0f all Gentlemen, Tradesmen, and other Readers, to take the Pains to ex- plain it to such as any way depend upon their Judg- ments by observing: That one must buy no less than Seven Tickets t0 have an even Chance for any Prize at all ; that with only one Ticket, it is Six to One, and with Half a Ticket, Twelve 10 One against any Prize ; and Ninety- nine or a Hundred to One that the Prize, if it comes, will not be above Fifty Pounds; and no less than Thirty- five Thousand to One that the Owner of a single Ticket will not obtain one of the greatest Prizes. That if one only Person among 35000 Men or Wo- men, was condemned to be whipped or punished two or three Days hence, I believe the whole Number would sleep easy enough, each thinking it impossible the Lot should fall Upon any particular one; and if so, why should the silly fanguine Hopes of the great Prize draw the Money out of so many thousand poor Pockets. That the Lottery, like all other Government Lotte- ries, is as fair as any Lottery can be, while the Tickets are sold for 101. each ; but no Lottery is proper for Per- sons of very small Fortunes, to whom the Loss of five or six Pound is of great Consequence, besides the Distur- bance of their Minds; much less it is adviseable, or de- sirable for either Poor or Rich, to contribute to the ex- orbitant Tax of more than Two Hundred Thousand Pounds, which the first Engrossers of Lottery Tickets, and the Brokers and Dealers strive to raise, out of the Pockets of the Poor chiefly, and the silly Rich partly, by artfully enhancing the Price of Tickets above the origi- nal Cost. As these Engrossers have had their Tickets cheap enough, let them keep them ; it is a fair Lottery, and they can't be hurt, taking them all together. For if any one person were t0 purchase all the Tickets, he would by the Scheme have just all his Money again. I am, & c. A. R. NOBLEMEN, LADIES and GENTLEMEN, AS my Distresses multiply, I beg Leave to renew my Address. The Charity of those few who have been so good as to assist me, though it has not yet amounted to a Sum so as to answer the End proposed. yet has not only supply'd my Family with Bread, which otherwise we must have wanted, but has also enabled me to put off the Foreclosure of the Mortgage of my Estate for a few Terms longer, in hopes the Publick will take Com- passion, and enable an honest Heart to be just to all the World: If I am so happy as by this Means ( which is my dernier Effort) to redeem my Estate, it will be then in my Power; otherwise, the Mortgagee will gain many thousand Pounds, my Creditors remain unpaid, and my Family reduced to beg their Bread. I make no Doubt but this Paper is read by Thousands in most Towns in the Kingdom ; Oh! that some one charitable Person in each Town would give themselves the Trouble to en- quire into the Recommendation Mr. Hoare has in my Behalf; they would thereby be convinced my Misfor- tunes are real; and if so, will, I hope, encourage a small Collection for my Benefit. Surely no humane Per- son would refuse to give a single Shilling to redeem a poor Family from Ruin ; and if all such will please to consider, that Trifle, from each such Person, when col- lected, will be abundantly sufficient to answer the End proposed, and no Soul suffer the least Inconvenience. The Ingratitude, Slights and Oppressions I daily expe- rience, are too many to be contain'd in this Paper; but I am satisfied would merit Compassion from every good- natur'd Soul living, could they be made sensible of them. Mr. Hoare, the Banker, is so good, by the Re- commendation of a Nobleman, as to permit his Servants to receive what is intended for the Benefit of the unfor- tunate Cha.
