T H E EdinburghEvenin MONDAY MARCH 30. 1752. MAILS from HOLLAND, LONDON GAZETTE, MARCH 14. NAPLES, MARCH 7. LAST Week an Express arrived here with some Dispatch- es relating to the Negotiation that is carrying on be- tween the Empress Queen, and his Catholick Majesty, for maintaining thc Tranquillity of Italy. The Workmen em- ployed by the Court in digging up the Ruins of the ancient City of Heraclea, have lately discovered some cxtreame fine Marble Statues, very little defaced, STOCKHOCM, MARCH 17. The Report of some distur- bances between the Russians and us in Finland, are entire- ly without Foundation. We have received Advice from divers Places of this Kingdom, of their having lately felt se- veral Shocks of an Earthquake, and particularly at Fahluo, and in the DistriCt of Tholland, but that they had happily . gone off without doing any considerable Damage. We learn from Gothenbourg, that they are in daily Expectation of the Arrival of two of our east India Company's Ships from Chi- na, richly laden. COPENHAGEN, MARCH IS. The Society established in this City for the Encouragement of Matrimony, and for. the Rc- . lief and Support of Widows, Orphans and Invalids, have at length chosen Directors for the Management of that Society. • GENERAL EVENING POST, MARCH. 24. MADRID, MARCH 7, The Interdiction. against the Ham- burgers has been executed throughout this Kingdom to its ut- most StriCtnesS; his Majesty absolutely insisting, that before any Mitigation of the former Sentence, the City of Ham- burgh shall absolutely renounce any Correspondence or Con- nexion with the Barbarians- That all Engagements cf- any. Kind must be totally dissolved without any Evasion. The " Syndic alledged, that if Hamburgh absolutely renounced all Treaties with Algiers none of their Ships bound to Spain would safely reach their Port. To this it was Replied, that this Inconveniency admitted of an easy remedy; for since • the City of Hamburgh could spare such a considerable Sum annually in Presents to its Infidel Allies, that Expcnce might be put to a better Use, and serve to keep two Men of War for the Protection of their Trade in thc Mediterranean, be- sides that which they might naturally expeCt from his Ma- Jesty's Ship's. STOCKHOLM, MARCH 14. The Earthquakes continue in several Parts- of'the Kingdom, and cause such a Consterna- tion, being unusual, as to apprehend hat thc general Disso- lution is at hand.' LEGHORN, MARCH TO. By thc Accounts of all the Mas- ters of Ships which have lately arrived here, the Sicilian and Sardinian Seas swarm with Corsairs, who are the more formidable, having divided themselves into several small Squa- drons, to make sure of any Ships which they can come up with, the better to copc with Ships of Force, who may have the Heels of them. RATISBON, MARCH 24. The Affair of Hohenloe, which was thought to be quite concludcd, begins to make a Noise again; he Margrave of Anspach having acquainted the Prince of Hohenloe, that if he did not restore to the Protestants what he lately carried to be taken from them, Measures would bc taken to oblige him: to it by Forcc. BERLIN, MARCH 25. The King who neglects nothing that may contribute to promote the Commerce of his Subjects, has ordered that two Packet- boats shall be constantly em- ploy'd, as well to carry Passengers as Merchandise, between Embden and London. DUSSELDORP, MARCH 26. As the Report continues, that the French intend to have a Camp upon the Moselle, and tha; a Commissary is already arrived in this Country to buy up provisions for those Troops, ' tis assured that the EmpresS Queen will form a Camp in the Territory of Luxembourg, for which several Regiments will be order'd from Bohemia. PARIS, MARCH 24. We learn from Nantz, that the Augusta East Indiaman is lately arrived there from Pondicherry very richly laden. This Ship brings Advice-, that Mr. Dupleix, Governor of Pondicherry, continued in striCt Union with Mouzafersingue, Nabob of Golconda, and that they were taking Measures, in concert with each other, to render a- bortive the Designs of the Mogul, in case he should attack them. We have Advice by the same Channel, that the Dif- ferences between the French and English concerning the Li- mits of their respeCtive Factories were, likely to be renew'd, and that Mr. Dupleix had caused it to be signified to the Go- vernor of Fort St. George, that he desired nothing so much as to preserve a good Understanding, and would do every thing on his Part to contribute to it; but that, if contrary to all Expectation, any Attempt should be made to encroach upon the Territories under his Government, he would not Only not suffer it, but should think himself obliged to oppose it openly. LYONS, Mar. 5, An Affair has lately broke out here which is very remarkable. An eminent Trader of this City, who had had acquired an easy Fortune, had a Couple of handsome Daughters, whom he married to his Liking, and divided between them all he had, upon an Agreement that he should pass the Winter with the one, and the Summer with the other Before the End of the first Year he found sufficient Grounds to conclude, that he was not a very acceptable Guest to ei- ther; of which, however he took no Notice, but hired a handsome Lodging, in which he resided for a few Weeks. He then applied himself to a Friend, and told him the Truth of thc Matter, desired him to give him two hundred Livres, and to lend him fifty thousand in ready Money for a few Hours. His Friend very readily complied with his Request. The next Day the old Man made a grand Entertainment, to which his Daughters, and their Husbands, were invited. Just as thc Dinner was oxer, his Friend came in a great Hur- ry, told him of an unexpected Demand upon him, and de- fired to know if he could lend him fifty thousand Livres. The old Man told him, without any Emotion, that twice as much was at his Service if he had wanted it; and going into the next Room brought him the Money. After this he was not suffered to stay any longer in his Lodging: His Daughters were jealous if he remained but a Day more at one House than the other; and after 3 or 4 Years spent in this Manner, he died last Month;, when, upon examining his Cabinet, instead of Riches, there was found a Note, in which were these Words, ' He who has suffered by his Virtue, has a Right to avail himself of the Vices of those by whom he he suffered; and a Father ought never to be so fond of his Children, as to forget what is due to himself.' LONDON. They write from the Hague, that the Princess of Orange accompanied by the Prince Stadtholder, and the Princess Ca- roline, will meet the King at Helvoetsluys, to return his Majesty Thanks for the Honour he has been pleased to con- fer on the Prince Stadtholder, is making, him a Knight of the Garter. The Lords of the Admiralty have appointed Capt. Dennis. to command his Majesty's Yacht the William and Mary, to. attend his Majesty to Holland, on. board of which, we hear,, Lord Anson intends to hoist his Flag. We hear that a Clause will be added to all future. Natura- lization Bills to oblige all Foreigners that obtain such Bills to reside some Part of their Time in his Majesty's Domi- nions, See. and not to enjoy the Privileges of a British born Subject, without contributing, any Thing towards the Sup- port of the State. Several Vessels are taken into the Service of the Govern- ment, to carry Naval Stores for the West Indies. Last Night as Capt. Hume was on his Return home to Limehouse, he was seised with an apoplectic Fit, and died this Morning. On Friday the Royal Duke, Capt. Cummins,, for the East- Indies, came into the downs with a Jury Fore- top Mast. She had been obliged to cut away her Anchor with 35 Feet of Cable, and has also lost her Long- boat. The Five Brothers, Morris, bound to Dunkirk, is staved to Pieces. Yesterday the sixteen Malefactors were, executed at Ty- burn, pursuaut to their Sentence. When they were called down into the Press- yard to be halter'd, Broughton and Hayes refused coming, without a clean Shirt and Stockings to be hanged in. Broughton, Hayes, Fox, and Agnew, the Rio- ters on Friday Night, were all executed in their double Irons. The dead Warrant is come to Newgate for the Execution of Capt. Laurie. To- morrow at Execution- Dock;. and he. is afterwards to be hung in Chains at Blackwall. The Punishment which Captain Laurie is doomed to suf- fer is said to have alarmed the Masters of Merchant Vessels, who therefore intend to make Application for an Enlarge- ment of their Power; but it is to be hoped that Care, will be taken not to discourage the Increase of our Sailors, by expos- ing them to Tyranny and Oppression. Capt. Laurie's Crime cannot be imputed to the Want of Power,, but to the Abuse of the Power which he had. Next Saturday is fixed, for the Execution, at Chelmsford, of Miss Jeffries and Swan. Swan is to be drawn from the Goal to the Place of Execution in a Sledge, and afterwards to be hung in Chains on Epping Forest, near Walthamstow, We hear thar the Bill for the better regulating the Pawn- brokers. is put off for a. Month. WHITEHALL EVENING POST MARcH. 14. They write from Italy, that a gentle Insinuation has been given to a certain Italian Prince, that he would do. well to re- duce his Troops to his usual Complement, - and to think no more of a certain Port. Advices from Francfort say, that they begin to be very ap- prehensive the Election of a King of the Romans may excite fresh Troubles. in the Empire; both the French and them- perialists intending to have Camps at the. Opening of this Summer. By Letters from Paris we are assured, that the Grand Sig- ner has directed Presents for the Duke of Burgundy,, to the. Value of half a Million of Crowns. The Priscilla, Kerton, is arrived at Plymouth from the Bay of Honduras, who brings Advice, that on Friday the 17th of December,, came into the. Bay two Gallies, a Tartan and a Brigantine under Spanish Colours, and took a Snow belong- ing to Bolton, a Brigantine belonging to ditto, a Brigantine belonging toRhode Island, and one other Vesel; there were Sail more in the Bay: : They intended to have bullied them: But the Captains Belschies, Littlejohn and Griffln, mann'd their Ships with some others out of the Fleet, maintained their Post in a brave Manner till the 29th of January when they had Intelligence of a twenty Gun Ship being sent for to the Assistance of the Spaniards; but by the Assistance of a good Pilot the Vessels retreated through a narrow Passage unknown to the Enemies, who I believe had a pretty good Belly- full from Capt. Littlejohn, of the Robin- Hood. The above 10 Gun Ship brought Troops and Artificers to build a Fort on the Island of Rattan, and they are building a Fort at the Mouth of the River Blace; on the 9th of Jan. sailed the Godolphin,. Belschies; the Robin- Hood, Littlejohn; Eltham, Griffin, not full laden; and the Indian King, Trump, belonging to New- York, who was one of the above Captains that were for de- fending the Rights of no Search. KiNGsTon in JAMACiA, Jan. 2.8. TheDeclaration of John Gasney, late Master of ihe Ship Eagle, of Boston, lately ar- rived here in his Majesty's Ship Fox, from the Havannah " That on the 19th of May, 1750, he sailed from Port Royal in Jamacia, bound for Corracoa, in Ballast and five Negroes, but meeting with tempestuous Weather, violent Squalls and Tornados, with Calms and a strong Current to the West- ward, was forced to the Leeward of Rattan, where he fell in with a Spanish Half Gally of 8 Guns and 65 Men, and - i Sloop of 10 Guns and 70 Men, commanded by Don Pablo Gratia Tolon, who soon came up with him, and fired 4 Shot thro' his Sails and Rigging, desired he would immedi- atly come aboard of him with his Boat, or he would board him, and cut him and his People to peices; whereupon the said Master taking his Papers to shew him he was upon a law- ful Trade, went with four of his People on board the Gally; but to his great Surprize, was, by the said Don Pablo, in a warlike and hostile Manner, detained Prisoner on board the Gally: That a Number of the Spaniards entred his Boat,, and went on board the Ship Eagle, which was then eight Leagues from the Shore,, and as Pirates and Robbers upon the high and open Seas, robbed and plundred the said Ship Eagle's Stores and Provisions, breaking Locks and Chests, and in a most inhuman and unchristian Manner tearing and destroying every Thing that did not seem to be of Service- to them.
