ON Wednefday laft the Lords of the Admiralty were pleafed to order the St. Albans, a fixty- gun Ship, to be put into Commiffion, and gave the Command to Capt Samuel Faulkner. Within thafe few Days paft five new BufTes have been launched for the Service of the Brkifh Fifhery, which are called the Anti- Gallican, Canterbury, Halifax, Anion and Norwich; in Honour to the laudable Society lately eftablifhed in this Kingdom, his Grace the Archbifhop, the firft Lord Commiffioner of Trade, the firft Lord of the Admiralty, and the Preceptor to his Royal Highnefs the Prince of Wales. We hear there is a great Demand for Corn in feveral Parts of Italy, upon which Orders have been fent hither and to other Places for a Supply. The Report ot the Plague's being broke out afrefh in Turky, we can affure the Publick, is without any manner c f Foundation. DUBLIN, Auguft i t . Laft Tuefday died, at his Houfe in Calvin . town in the County of Kildare, Mr John Courfe, aged 112. He was born in Languedoc, and bred up in the Principles of the Reformed Religion. He was forced into the French Army in the Reign of Lewis X I V , and ferved three Campaigns in Flanders, and then went into the Service of the Dutch, under the Prince of Orange; after which he came to Ireland with JJukc Schomberg, and inlifted himfelf nnder King William III. of glorious Memory. He d. flinguifhed himfelf in moft of the Battles againft the late King lames II. and behaved himfelf with great Bravery, for which he was well rewarded; then quitted the Army, took a Farm, and lived upon it. He has left three Sons, the eldeft of which is near Sixty, and the youngeft but Twenty- two. E D I N B U R G H . This Day the Julian Form of the Year, or Old Stile, ends, and the Gregorian Form, or New Stile, commences in Britain, as appointed by A f t of Parliament.— Whatever Difference there hath been amcng different Nations in the Beginning and Ending their Years, yet the moft of them endeavoured to make their Year correfpond to one Revolution of the Sun through the twelve Signs of the Zodiac: But their want of Skill in Aftronomy obliged them to intercalate Days, and fometimes Months, to keep theirYearto fomething near an Equality to the Courfe of the Sun. The Roman Year was divided by Romulus into ten Months, which confifted, fome of thirty, and fome of thirty one Days; and Numa added two Months more, viz. January and February; but the Form of Nutria's Year was fo corrupted, by thelndifcretion of the Pontiffs, in whofe Hands the fole Power of Intercalation was lodged, that the Winter Months fell back to the Autumn, and thofe of the Autumn to the Summer, / l ' o remedy thefe InConveniencies, Julius Casfar, that Year in which he let about Reformation of the Kaiendar, ( being the 46th Year before Chrift) added 23 Days between the 23d and 2.4th of February, and alio 67 Days between November and December; fo that Year contained 445 Days, and was called the Year of Confufion. Then he inftituted a Solar Year of 365 Days 6 Hours, ordering the 6 Flours to be neglefted till they made a Day, which happened every 4th Year, and to be inferted after the 13d of February, which - fourth Year is called Biflextile or Leap Year. But this Julian Year is too much by near n Minutes, which occafions the Times ot the Equinoxes and Solftices to go backward a - whole Day in about 133 Years. In the Year i> Si Pope Gregory reformed the Julian Kaiendar, and took ten DavS from the Month of Oftober that Year, ordering the 5th to be called the 15th, by which the Vernal Equinox, which was on the IQ h or nth of March, was brought to the 20th or 2Lft, a" u had been at the Time of the Council of Nice, in the Year of Chrirt 325 : And, to keep the Year to very near an Equality with the Courfe . of the Sun, ordered that the laft Year of every 4th Century fhould be a Leap Year, whereas, in the Julian Years, the laft of every 100 is a Leap Year; fo the Years 1800 and 1900 will be common Years confining of 365 Days each, but the Year 2000 will be a Lean Year: And by this Inftitution, which is called the Gregorian or New Stile, the Vernal Equinoxes are fixed, almoft forever, to the 2,0th or 21ft March. The Year, 1700, in the Julian Accompt was a Leap Year, but in the Gregorian a common Year, which is the Reafon that there is now 11 Days of Difference between the Old Stile and the New : And, as the 11 Days are ordered to be taken out of this current Month September immediately after the 2d, this Day, which would have been the 3d, is made the Fourteenth. We hear that upon the n t h Auguft laft, Euphemia Wood, Spoufe to Thomas Fife late Vintner in Edinburgh, obtained a Divorce before the Commiftaries of Edinburgh, againft the faid Thomas Fife upon the Head of Adultery. Upon the 31ft of July laft, the High School of Edinburgh was examined, in Prefence of the Right Honourable the Lord Provoftand Magiftrates, feveral 1' rofeiTors of the College, Minifters and other Gentlemen of the City, particularly fuch who had Sons at the School, who all with'Pleafure obferved the great Proficiency the Scholars had made fince laft Year, and the excellent Method in which the Boys are taught in that Seminary, where they muft certainly make a greater Progrefs in their Education than in mbft cither Schools, whofe Teachers have, perhaps, four, five or more different Claffes, and confequently as many Leifons to prefcribe and examine ; whereas in the High School of Edinburgh, every Matter hath his particular Clafs, who have one Leffon in common; which mult be of great Advantage to Boys of a flow Capacity, or the more carele'f-. Mr. Farquhar's Clafs were examined upon thofe Parts of a f 1 rt / T1 i-\ r O /" PX /" VF- H !->-> T T rwCn m ,1 DI. AFN\ . L. .. . O. 1 J 1 .. 1 ..... / n. tiiuaicu wan great Facility, and appeared fo well founded as to give Satisfaction to all prefent. The Magiftrates, in order to encourage the Youth, who were Very numerous, were pleafed to diftribute a great many Books, handfomely gilt, and impreflcd with the City's Arms, among the feveral Clafles; at the fame Time affuring both Mafters and Scholars, That they might depend on all due Encouragement from them, while they continued to behave fo well in their refpeftive Stations. The who's concluded with tranflating feveral Paragraphs of free Englifh into C L A S S I C A L L A T I N , and pronouncing LATIN ORATIONS by the Boys in the higheft Clafs, in order to initiat them in the ART ' of ORATORY: And that the Publick may not think this a PUFF, A L L who have a Mind, are welcome to hear the Leffons prefcribed or examined, at any Time at School Hours, for their Satiffaftion. Mr. Farquhar begins the Rudiment Clafs on Monday the fecondlDay of Oftober. next, N. S. fuch as defign to enter their Children to the High School, at that Time, may depend on| having them carefully founded and inftrufted in the Latin Tongue. If any enter lat'er, all due Tarns will he ufed to bring fuck tip with the Clafs, by a private Hour. This at the Defire of the Magiftrats, is inferted in the News Papers.
