T H E EdinburghEveningCourant T U E S D A Y J U N E %: 1 7 5 2. A MAIL from F R A N C E . G E N E R A L E V E N I N G P O S T , M A Y 18. EXTRACT of a LETTER from PARIS, May 17. T Here is certainly Something o f great Importance negotiating between put Court and that of Vienna. If Commerce Is'the O b j e A of this Negociation, as there is the trtfnofl: Reafon to believe it is, England and Holland will, . be very attentive to it, and will not fail giving the Court of Vienna proper Eclaircifferaents upon an Affair which fo greatl y interefts the two Nations. It is the general Opinion here, that during the Refidence of his Britannick Majefty at Hanover, the Affair o f the Election of a King of the Rontons, in favour of the Archduke Jofeph, will be vigouroufly puflfd, and that a decifiveRefolution will be thereupon taken. It's thought that our Court will not oppofe it, feeing it has not fufficiently recovered from the Loffes it fuftained in the late War, and the King of Pruffia can do nothing alone. I t was lately reported that the Earl of Albemarle, the Britifh Ambaffador here, would be charged with the Negociation about the Neutral Iflands, and the Limits between the t w o Crowns in North America; but that Report now appears to be groundlefs. The Negociation will be carried on in the fame Way it was begun; that is to fay, the refpective Commifiaries will examine and decide the Points in queftion. As for the Britiih Cimmiflaries, ' tis pretended they have recently received Inftructions of fuch a Natureyas cannot fail of. accleratiM the Conclufion. of thefe A f f a i r s; but it ftrongely fulpedted, that our Commiffaries have InftrudFtons calculated for Procraftinaticn, as the Situation of Affairs in Germany does not well admit of being inHafte to terminate all Differences with England. Letters from Port L ' O r i e n t of the 13d inft. mention the Arrival of the Roulier from Pondicherry, and that her Cargo confifts of 1100 Bales of Goods ofth'eCoromandelCoaft, 270000 lb. of Red Wood, 170000 lb. Pepper and Saltpetre, 8cc. By this Ship we have Advice, that the Duke de Pent h i e v e , belonging to our Indian Campany, as alio a Danifh and a Swedifh Ship, had all three loft their Voyage to China. HAGUE, May 28. They write from Berlin, that the King of Pruffia has been afreth attacked, not with a Fit of the Gout, as it was at firft given out, but with one of the Cholick, the Confequences of the frequent Returns of which are very much apprehended by a great Part of this Court; for if it ( hould happen that this Diforder'fhould play his Majefty an unlucky T r i c k , and carry him off the Stage at a Time when no Body might have expeded fuch an Event, the Face o f Affairs would be very much changed, according to the Opinion of thofe People that know Prince Auguftus William's Manner of thinking, who is to fucceed him.' T h e Affairs of the Repubick are ftill in the fame indeterminate State. The States of Holland are deliberating upon the Article of the Free Port, to which thofe of Zealand make a ftrong Oppofition; and no Wonder that they do, for in their Province Merchandize pays li'tle or no Duties, and therefore their whole Province is to them a fort'of Free Port, gnd their private Intereft the fole Caufe of their Oppofition to fo falutary and advantageous a Projedt, L O N D O N . , " r We hear that the Merchants o f New- Englandhave refolv* ed to open a Trade into Hudfon's Bay, without any Re* gard to the CofiipSftiy, or their Charter; who, if they in- - l i n e to try the Affair i t Law, will, in'fuch a Cafe, be oto proiecute. By ihis means their Right to an exclul i v e T t ^ e , and the Monopoly of the Produce of thatCoun- . t r y , will be contefted, and probably either be confirmed or fet afide. Admiral Knowles fets out for Jamaica on Saturday next. Yefterday feveral poor Boys, fome of them in the moll tatter'd Condition, were- received by the Managers of the Herring- F fhery Society, and ordered on board their Buffes lying in the River; there to be cloathed, and fent to the Fithing Grounds off Shetland. A Ship from Newfoundland for Ancona is loft in the Streights. Laft Week an Accident happened on board the Severn Man of War, lying off Plymouth Dock, ready to fail with other Ships, to relieve his Majefty's Ships ftationed in the Weft- Indies, that had very near put a Stop to her V o y a g e , by fome Materials catching Fire in the Boatfwain's Cabbin, which joined to one o f the Powder Magazines on Board; the Fire prefently got a Head fo much, that the Crew, excepting feven quitted the Ship, and went afhore, expefting . every Moment to fee her blow up; but the Men that were left were determined to peritb, rather than lofe . the Ship; accordingly, they went to work with a full Refolution to extinguifh the Fire, which made a prodigious Smoak; and by knocking out the Heads of the Water- Casks, and handing the Buckets of Water from one to the other, they with ' great Labour and Difficulty got it under. After they had fufficiently quenched it, they went on Deck, and gave three Huzzas to a prodigious Number of Spectators, who lined the Shore, expefting every Moment to fee the Ship blow up; and then the Remainder of the Crew went on board again. T h e y write from New England, that a Ship from Hloland was arrived at Marblehead, having on board feveral hundred German Proteftants, i n order to fettle in the Eaftem. Parts of that Province. We have Advice from America, that the Robert and Nelly, Capt. Grigman, bound from the Canaries to Carolina, is loft in her Paffage; the Captain and his People, except two, were fayed by a North- American Veffel. This Morning the Effex, Capt. Jackfon, from India, came to her Moorings at Erith. W H I T E H A L L E V E N I N G P O S T , May z6. PARIS A- LA- MAIN, June 2. The King having been informed, that feveral Pamphlets and Prints have lately appeared, notwjthftanding the repeated Prohibitions which his Majefty has caufed to be publilhed againft writing or publifh- Sng any thing reflefting upon the Regulations lately made by the Parliament, his Majefty has iffued an Arret to fupprefs all fuch Prints and Pamphlets, under very fevere Penalties againft all Perfons who ( hall be any ways concerned in prinung, publifliing, or difperfmg them. Thofe who have any by them of what have been already publifhed, are alfo enjoined to deliver them up immediately totheRegifters o f die Council, The Print which has been fuppreffed, re • prefents an Altar like thofe which the Antients made their Sacrifices upon; on the Right Hand of which Hands a Figure, witha Sword in one Hand, and the other refting upon the Altar, on which are reprefented the Myfteries of Religion, and over it a Dove with a Branch of Olive inirsBeak. On the other Side of the Altar is reprefented the Figure of France, and that of a Magiftrate; and at the Bottom of the. Print is copied, at full Length, the Arret which the Parliament iffued the 18th of April laft, concerning the Refusal of the Sacraments. L O N D O N . The Dutch News Writers make themfelves merry with the Conferences at Bruffels; but more prudent People are of Opinion, that if what they fay be true, it will, fooner or latter, be found a very melancholy Truth.

Naturalifts, in pu'rfuance Of thofe by Mr. Franklyri in Philadelphia, to find whether the tonitruous and eleftricalMatter be notanalagous'; it appears, that to Axon the higheft Part of Buildings, - or Sh'ipS, ( harppointed Iron Bars of ten or twelve Feet, and gilt to prevent Ruft, with a Wire hanging down on the Outfide to the Ground, or about one of the Ship's Shrouds, is a P. refervative againft Thunder. The. Sieur Dalibard having placed in a Garden at Marly an Iron Bar on an eleftrical Body at the Height of 40 Feet, was informed that on the toth c f May, about za'Minutes after T w o , a Tempeft palling over that Spot, the Parifh Prielt and other Perfons drew from the Bar • fuch Sparks and Agitations as are feen in the common electrical Performances. On the 18th, the Sieur d e ' L o t having fixed a Bar at the Height of 99 Feet, on a Cake of Rofin two Feet fquare and three Inchcs thick, drew Corufcations fromit daring half an Hour betwixt Four and Five, whilft the Cloud vvas over it; thefe Scintillations were perfectly like thofe emitted by his Gun Barrel, when the Globe is rubb; d only with the Brtifh, the fame Fire, the fame Crackling; • yvhilft the Rain mixed with a little Hail fell from the Cloud without any Lightning or Thunder, t'no' it appeared to be the Progrefs of a Tempeft which had happened elfewhere: Both thefe Experiments have been reported to the Royal Academy of Sciences, and do evince that Thunder Clouds may be deprived of their Fire, by Iron Bars fafhianed and fixed as above. L O N D O N . Monday Morning one Thomas Wilford was committed to Newgate by julli. ee Fielding for the Murder of Sarah his Wife, hy giving her feveral Stabs, and cutting her Throat in fuch a Manner asalmoft to fever her Head from her Body. — T h e Fiifoner confeffed the Fact, and faid that he had married this Woman on Wednefday laft, that he had a very Tiokr. t Love for her, and that Jealoufy was the Motive to this rath Afiion. He laid his Wife had left him the Night before at Seven, and ft aid out till paft Eleven; that he was vexed at her long Stay, and queftioned her about it at her Return, to which fee gave him very fhortandunfatisfadtory Anfwers. This threw him into a Rage, which being further kindled by provoking Words, he fnatched up a Knife and committed the above F a - f t .— He was extremely bloody, and particularly on one Knee, with which he had knelt on his Wife while he cut .. her Throat.— WJienJtehadpiepstrat* ed this ho'rrid ' Fadt, he ran haftily down from the lecond Floor, Where he lodged, to the firft, and offered t o make his Efcape out at the Window; but a Woman who- lodged in the R o om oppofite to him, who hadheard his W i f e groan, crying out Murder, he ftopt fuddeoly and returned, faying he had killed the Woman whom he had loved beft of all the World, and was contented to faffer for it. After this he made no mors Offer at efcaping, which . he might ealily have effe& ed; but ftaid quietly with the Men of the Houfe till the Conftable came, and took him into Cuftody. He is a young Fellow juft turned of 17 Years of Age, born only with one Arm, of a comely and modeft Countenance, and his Behaviour, with the extreme Horrors with which he appeared to be pofleft, drew fome Pity from the Crowd who were prefent, notwithftanding he confeffed, he. vvas near a Quarter of an Hour in committing the Murder; during which Time it was remarkable, that no Peifon heard more than two or three of the Woman's dying Groans. E D I N B U R G H . We are certainly informed, that by a Letter from the Rf. Hon. the Earl of Holdernefle, one of his Majefty's principal Secretaries of State, to the Lord Juftice Clerk, his Lordfbip takes Notice, , that he had laid before the Lords Juftices an Account of the execrable Murder of Mr. Colin Campbell of Glenure, . committed upon Thurfday the 14 hMay laft; and' their Excellencies having taken into their Conftderation the Iniolence of this Attempt, and the feveral aggravating Circumftances which attend it, have determined to offer a Reward of tool. each to fuchPerfon orPerfons as fhall difcover the Author or Authors of this wicked Adtion, and a free Pardon to any Perfon concerned who fliall difcover his or their Accomplices, fo that he or they be brought to Juftice, excepting ihe Perfon who adtually committed the Murder; and Directions are fent to the Sheriff- depute of Argylefhire, - to affix upon all the Church- doors within his Jurifdiction an Advertifement to ihis Purport. Laft Sunday Night died at Bainfield, in the 14th Year of his Age, Mr. Thomas Stephen of London Merchant, only". Son of Mr. John Stephen Merchant in this City. If filial Duty, fraternal Affection, Integrity of Heart, Generofity of Mind, and the moft univerfal and'difinterefted Benevolence manifefted in the whole Adtions of a Ihort Life, could endear this young Gentleman to Mankind, he dies the Objedl of a juft- Regret; and his Friends have all the Comfort that the Contemplation of his Virtues, and the Sympathy of the Public, afford. Yefterday being the Anniverfary kept in Memory of Mr. George Heriot, Founder of the beautiful Hofpu'al which bears his Name, the Lord- Provoft and Magiftrates went in Proceflion to the new Grey- friers Church, and heard a Sermon fuitable to the Occafion preached by the Rev. Mr. Jardine, one of the Minifters of this City, from Prov. iii. 2.8. The Boys, all new clothed, as alfo' the Girls belonging to the Merchants and Trades Hofpitals, walked to Church in Order, and made a very agreeable Appearance. The Boys deck'd the Statue of their famous Benefadtor with a Variety of beautiful and curious Flowers, and Thoufands of youthful Spectators were highly pleas'd with the Elegance of the Show. We hear from Glafgow, that good Oat- meal fells there at 10 d. per Peck, and' that as there is a fine Piofped over the whole Country there is no Doubt of its being f; on cheaper. — And that two large Detachments o f the Welfh Fufneersare . gone from thence to work upon the new Road making, between Taindrum and Fort William. - We hear that 200 Soldiers- belonging to Fort Willi am keep Garrifon at the Laird of Appin's Houfe, where we are told' they will continue till the Search for the Murderers of Mr. Campbell of Gknure is over. They write from NevVcaftle, that the following melancholy- Accident happened at. a. Public Houfe there: Evan M ao donaM, a Soldier in Guife's Regiment, now quartered at that Place, being at Supper, fprne Company Coming- in gave him provoking Language, which he warmly refe- ucd, and a. Scuffle enfued, where. n he unhappily wounded a young Man in the Neck fo dangeroufly that lie died foon after,, upon which the Soldier was committed to Prifon and put in Irons.— Such are the gloomy Conferences 01 rafh reflecting Difco'urfe, afcd revengeful taffiton. 1 T H I S ' D A Y I S P U B L I S H E D , And ( old by K I N C A I D and D O N A L D S O N , t . y H E Trial of Mary Blandy Spinftcr, for the Murder L o f h e r Father Francis Bland y Gent- at the Affixes held at Oxford, before the Hon.
