Ihe ornm From Friday A U G U S T 9, to Monday A U G U S T N , 1 7 7 1. Continuation of A ' Narrative of the Dangers and Diftrejfes which befel I S A A C M O R R I S , and feven more of the Crew, belonging to the Wager St ore- Ship, which attended Commodore Anfon, in his Voyage to the South- Seas. H E Y feldom l i v e l o n g in one Piace ; for whrn their Horfes have eat up the Paiture in one Piace, they remove their Town and all their Goods, which is foon done, a few Miles from the former; and this fcveraltimes in a Year ; fo that they have no fettled Abode. They have fcatter'd Habitations all over the C o u n t r y , and but few Huts together; the T o w n where their Chief refides has three times the Number of Dwellings t o any of the reft which I faw. T h e y feem to have fome Notion of a Deity and pay a fort of W o r f h i p , to the Sun and Moon ; efpecially at at every N e w Moon, they colledt themfelves in a Body, and make a folemn Proceflion round the T o w n , one goi n g before with a kind of Hoop in his Hand, round which are tied little Brafs Beils, adorned with Oftriches Feathers which he would frequently fwing round his Hand ; and then the whole Company would make a moft hideous Noife, which, I fuppofe, they defigned for Singing. This Ceremony ufually lafted Half an- Hour. This Method with their Hoop and Bells is likewife ufed when any of them arefick or dying. A white Flannel Cloth is hung Up before the tick Perfon, and the Man with his Hoops and Bells, who is generally one of his Relations, comes to vifit him; and, after a few Minutes Converfation he leaves him, and walks feveral times round the H u t , j i n g - ling his Bells, and talking aloud in a Variety of Accents, which we could underftand nothing of, but imagined he defigned it for Prayers for his fick Friend. When any of them dies, they foon bury him generally the next Morning. They roll up the dead Body in a Hide, with every T h i n g that belongs to him, as Bows, Arrows, Sec. and carry it, without any Ceremony, at iome Diftance from the T o w n ; where they throw it into a large round Pit, dug o n Purpofe, which they afterwerds fill up with Earth. Yet notwithftanding they have no Ceremony, at the Funeral, their Mourning for the Dead is very ftrift, which t h e Friends of the Deceafed obferve for three Months, during which T i m e they remove themfelves at a Diftance f r om any of the reft of the Houfes, and ccnverfe with nobody ; but are fupplied with Provifions from the whole Town,"| by the King' s Order, ' till they Time of Mourni n g is over. They feem to have fome Notion of the Devil, at leaft are afraid of Apparitions ; for none of t h em wiil ftir out of his Hut, when dark without Company. And one Night in particular we heard a great Noife in the Town, likfe feveral Drums beating, which, next Day, we found to be fome of the Indians beating the Sides of their Houfes, which were made of Horfes Skins, with large Stiks, in order to frighten away the D e • vil. - Each Indian has but one Wife, and they live together in. a vety losing Manner. When any of them lye- in there's a Provifion made for them different from what they are accomodated with at another Time ; for the Entrance of the Hut, which at other Times is always open, is fhut up with Horfes Skins as foon as the Woman begins to be in Travail; and no one goes in till ftie comes with the Child in her Arms, which is prefentlv wrapt up in a Sheep's Skin, and, inftead of a Bed or Cradle, is laid on a Machine fomewhat like our Handbarrow', the Bottom of which is likewife covered with a Sheep's Skin. ( To be continued. ) . Since our laft arrived a Mail from H O L L A N D . Algiers, July 16. As Malteze Ships feldom fall into the Hands of the Corfairs of Barbary, here was great Rejoicing at the Taking of that off the Ifland of Rhodes, and the more fo as this VeiT. l had b~ en~ cruifi n g many Months in the L? vanf, and had taken feveral Barbary Ships. The Dey has prefentej the Captain who took her with a Slave and IOCO Piaftres, 200 Saq u i i i S to the Turk who firft boarded her 100 to the fecond, fifty to the third, thirty to the fourth, arid fifteen to the fifth. Madrid, July 27. The King,- being convinced of the A ( vantages which vvoij'd accrue from a tjreater Number of^ Europeans fettling in kis . American Dominions, has c- iict'U confi- Jtrahle Privileges, Exemptions and Advantages to Italian Families, who wil! go and eftablifh themfelves in that Country. Rome, Augujl 2. They write from Nocera, that they have lately had there feveral Shocksofan Earthquake, one of which was fo violent, that many Houfes were greatly < larnag'd, particularly that wherein Cardinal Spinelli, Archbilho^ of Naples,, lodg'd ; and that this Accident had determined him to fet out with Precipitation, in order to return to this Capital. Leghorn, Augujl. 3. A great Number of Ships are failed from this Port to the Levant, to load with Corn, the Price of that Commodity augmenting every Day on Account of the bad Harveft there has been this Year, as well in Lombardy as in the Kingdoni ot Naples. - Chamberry, Aug. 4. Laft Friday Morning we receiv'd here the difagreeable News, that the Day before there had happened " at La Roche, a little T o w n in the Province of Faucigni, a Fire; which in a fhort Time reduced more than thirty Houfes to Afiies. Pofnania, Aug. 4. They write from Meferitz, and feveral oftier Places upon the Frontiers of Silefia, that the Locufts appear in great Numbers, and continue to make terrible Ravages in thofe Parts.

It is allured the Queen is again with Child, and that it will fhortly be declared at Court. Hamburgh, Augujl- 10. The laft Advices which we have received from the Frontiers of Turkey by the Way of Poland, intimate, that the Turks haJ all onafudden fufpended the Preparations of War which had been making on the Side of Moldavia, and little Tartary, which is attributed to the News of the Death of the late King of Sweden, and the Declaration which the new King has made upon his Acceffion to the Throne of that Kingdom. Hanover, Augujl 10. All the Letters which have been r'eceiv'd from the teveral Parts of this Ele& orate, are lull of Accounts of the extraordinary Damages which the late Storms have caus'd, as well in the Cities as in the Country. The Hopes that had been conceiv'd of a plentiful Harveft, are vanifh'd, moft of the Corn having been deftroy'd by the Hail, and the Waters that have fallen from the neighbouring Mountains. Cologn, Augujl 12. They write from Bonn, that a Detachment of 150 Men of the Troops of that Garrifon was fet out for Olepes, a little T o w n in Weftphalia, in order to reduce the Inhabitants who had rifen againft the Magiftracy. Paris, Augujl 9.

His Excellency will on that Occafion diftribute Medals, which have been flruck for that Purpofe at Paris. I R E L A N D . Dublin, Augujl 3. We hear that on Account of the prefent Combinations of the Journeymen and Artificers of the feveral Trades in this Kingdom, a Bill will be brought in next Seftion of Parliament, to put a Stop to this growing Evil, fo prejudicial to the Trade and Manufactures thereof. Dublin, Aug. 3. Late laft Monday Night a Gentleman going through i lerCe- alley in Fifhamble- ftreef, was attacked by two Gabbard Men, who took off h: s Hat and W i g , and then ftruck him violenly over the Hea<-, whereupon he cried out Robbers, when a Man and a Woman happening to come that Way, upon hearing the Gentleman cry our, ran to his Afliftance, which the Robbers feeing endeavoured £ 0 make their Efcape, but the Woman feizing one of the Villains by the Collar, after fofne Struggle got him down; the Man, with the Help of the Gentleman that was attacked, purfued the other Vi'lain and took him, and. they were both committed to Newgate. We hear that they are the Perfons who murdered a Watchman belonging to the Baliaft Office on George's Quay fome time ago. Judith Brenan, that was to have been executed fome time ago, but fet at Liberty on Condition that fhe would tranfport herfelf, w2s this Week, with another Lady^ oj, the T o w n , fent to Newgate, for robbing a Ge whom they pickcd up in the Street. On Thurfday Part of a Houfe fell down in Lane ; but fome of the Chimney falling firft it the Perfons within, who immediately ran out, lea young Child in the Cradle, which providentally w^ by ihat Part of the Houfe not giving Way. S H I P N F. W S. Deal, Aug. 8. Yefterday after Poft came down, and failed the Smith, Salifbury, for Liverpool ; the Richmond, Taylor, for Dublin; the , Douger, for L; fb) n ; and the Fox, Read, for Smyrna. Several of the Ou: ward- bound that failed Yefterday are put back, and remain with the Happy Return, Ferriter, for Madeira ; and the Danifh Ship as per laft. Wind W . by N. blows frefh. L O N D O N . By Letters brought by Friday's Poft we learn, that the Ships which lately went out under the Command of Corr.- rnodore Rodney, in fearch of the Ifland of which Information upon Oath was given to the Lords of the Admiralty, are returned to Spithead, without having been able to make the leaft Difcovery of fuch Ifland. According to the laft Accounts frortl a ccrtain Infant Colony, there is too much Reafon to fear the French will gain their Ends on that Side. We have heard of Regiments being ferit over from Time to Time, from England and Ireland, and certain it is that feveral Regiments were tranfported thither; but it now appears, by thefo Advices; that all put together do not make above one complete Regiment; every Company fhould confift of 29 private Men, but they have generally no more than 11, 12 or 13 Men ; and of thefe fome are daily lopp'd off by the Indians in the French Intereft, who harrafs them perpetually with furprifing Animoiity. Such of thefe Indians as are initiated into the Chriftian Religion, are made to believe, by the French Miftionaries, that Jefus Chrijl was a Frenchman, and his Crucifiers Englijhmev. In fhort, they omit nothing toplague that new Settlement, ' tis faid the G — : — — r is quite lick of his Poft, feeing himfelf fo ill fupported. Capt. Rous, who { 00k a French Brigantine laft Summer on that Coaft, was fent fome T i m e ago with a Sloop of War to look into a certain Creek or Bay in that Neighbourhood ; and when this Account came away they began to be uneafy about him, being informed that a French Man of War had failed foon after in qutft of him. They write from Nova Scotia, of the 12th of June, that feveral Skirmifhes having happened near Chebufto with the Enemy, Major Cotterell was fent out with a Party of 170 Men to reconnoitre the Woods, and to lie in Ambufh for the Indians; which Defign failing, in • order to difcover if the Indians had any Real Courage, he crofted the- R. iver, and made towards a Blockhcufe, upon which both French and Indians immediately retir'd, but foon returned, and fired a Swivel Gun, which wounded one of our People; and as they were too powerful, Major Cotterell thought proper to repafs the River. An Extrail of a Letter from Halifax in Nova Scotia, dated June 25, 1751. < W e have had feveral Skirmifhes with the Indians, by which feveral of our People have been killed arid fcalped ; fome Days ago about fixty of them attack'd the T o w n of Dartmouth, whofe Fence is only a fma'i Brufh, and kill'd about eight of the Inhabitants, and afier that, exercifed their Cruelties, by pulling down fome Houfes, and deftroyiug all they found, not fparing Men, Women, and Children; a Serjeant, who was in his Bed, came to the Inhabitants Afiiftance whom they purfued and kili'd ^ and not being content with his Life, cut his L: ft Arm off, and afterwards fcalped him. In returning from the T o w n , they carried off about fourteen Prifoners in Triumph. During this Engagement, we had no Affiftance from the Company of Rangers, for which a Serjeant has been tried bj a. Court- Martial, but acquirted; and notwithftanding thefe troublefome Times with the Indians which the French fend us, arid the D- v i i fenaj » 1*;<. ch, we have ftill Ships continually arriving, with i MTiilies on Hoard to People this Colony j hut our great . lx .. station and Hopes are on the Arrival of Commodore ;'\> e, with five Bntifli Ships of War, who we daily exoect, with ail Military Implements.

They write from Maryland, that the latter End of June died Knot Benger, Efq; Poftmafter General of all ins Majefty's Dominions of America. By a Letter from the Cape of Good Hop?, dated the JOth of April Jaft, to a Ge;: tiem » n in th s Town, there . i Advice that at that T i m e there were at the Caps two French outward bound India Ships, full of Officers and Soldiers, and that eleven others, provided in. like manner, had gone before, which they pre ended was only to repair the li- rfTcs they had iuftained ; but it alarmed our People with ftrange Apprelisnlions. Thurfdjy laft was heiil a Board of Admiralty, when • heir ' Lordihips were pleafed' to appoint Mr. Thomas per to be a Clerk in, the Yard oi Porifmouth. fame'Day their Lord/ hips ordered the Offer Sloop ar to be paid- or at Deptford, and put out of Com- ; ev likewife ordered P. merrt ofal!

Laft Tiiurfday- Night his Grace the Dike of St. A'bag's airiv'd in Town from his Travels to' foreign Parts. We hear from Tunbrid'ge We". Is that the Company there is very brdiiant. The French Ambaflador, with his Lady and numerous Retinue arc arrived there : Other new and genteel Company are continually coming and going 5 the Change is very frequent for want of their Gaming to fix them, the Country Gentlemen having tak: n the laudable Resolution not to fuller any. O,: e- or two Accidents of Note have happened there a young .

The Lofs is reckoned to bs 200 I. to Mr. Smith, the Houfe in'. ng his own, which W3S fhe Fru't of his own Labour ajidht'iieft Induftry ; but we hear that feveral Gentlemen oi Fortune in the Neighbourhood are determined, by an .- let of Beneficence, to make his Lofs as light as poffible. Laft Thiirfday Nighf, about Ten o'CIocfc, Robert Darby alais Jones, who robb'd the Weftern Mail on Blackwater Heath on Monday the 39th of July laft, was taken at Gravefead, by an Acquaintance of his, who had purfued him from Place to Plate for fix Days lucceftively: The firft D<* y he was fo near being taken, that he was obliged to leave the Cloaths he robbed the Mail in behind him, and which ihe Boy has fince fwore to.
