T H E urant TUESDAY NOVEMBER 21. 1752. A MAIL from FRANCE. GENERAL EVENING P: C) ST, NOVEMBER tg. CONSTANTINOPLE; Odtober 5. THE Grand Sigtiior having thought proper to depofe the Patriarch of the Greeks and appoint another in his Room, the People of that Perfuafion mutinied, and went in a tumultuous Manner to the Seraglio to demand their- for- mer Patriarch might be reftored to them. The Grand Sig- ivor complied with their Demand, but as the Manner in which they made it merited fomePunifhment, fome of them were taken up and hanged. ROME, October it. The Pretender arrived here on Mon day Morning from his Seat at Albano, and was introduced to an Audience of the Pope the fame Day. He had a Con- ference with his Holinefs, which lafted two Hours, and which, it's pretended, turned upon fome Difpatches which the Chevalier had received from his eldeft Son. TOULON, Odtober 2.4. The Topaz Frigate came in here the 9th inftant from a Cruize which ( lie has been making Tome Time off Sallee. Mr. de Moellen, who commanded this Frigate, and all the Officers that eat at his Table, were unhappily poifoned a Fortnight before their Arrival at this Port: Whenjthey landed, they could hardly ( land: they look- ed pale, and wafted, and feemed to be almoft dying; and as it appears from feveral Symptoms that they mull have taken Poifon, ftndt Enquiry is making into the Caufe of their Misfortune. The Flour, and all the other Provsfion of the Ship has been examined, but the Occafion of this Fa- tality is at prefent undifcovered. One of the Officers died the 10th inflant, the Stewart and two Cooks are. fince dead, and another Officer lies at the Point of death; the Pttifer with great Difficulty was fent to his Family at Marfeilles; the Chaplain and feveral others are very ill; but from the great Care that is taken of them, it is hoped they may re- ' c- over.

Out of C00 Letters they had from the Ship, there was not above 30 fared. We are affured by Mr. de la Condaminc, who made a Voyage into the, Levant about twenty Yeats ago, that the Turks have difcovere'd a rich Mine not far from the Ruins of Old Troy, which is wrought at prefent to great Advan- tage; and he was informed that they have aifo feveral other Silver Mines in different Parts of Alia Minor, chiefly under the Diredion of I alian Ren'egadoes.

The Prifoner was attended by Mr. William Caskill Minifterof Kiimai e and Mr. Couper Minifter at Fort- Willi- am and a few of his Friends. A little after iz they got to the Place of Execution, where was eredted a fmall Tent that contain'd the two Minifters and the Prifoner; and after a fhort Prayer by one of the Minifters, the Prifoner produced three Copies of a Speech, oneof whi ch he gave to the She, r. ft Subft. tute of Argyle Shire, another to Captain Welch the Commanding Officer, and asked Leave to read the third Copy ; which being granted, he with an audible and diftindt Voice, read. a very extraordinary Speech, and when he had done reading, gave the third Copy to Mr. Douglas She- - riff Subllitu. e of invertiefs. Then the Sheriff Subftitute of ,' Argyle Shire, told the Prifoner that he was greatly furpris'd fj at fuch a Speech from one in his Situation, and tho' it was. .. not his purpofe to make any Obfervations upon what he hai ; l. fead as the Time was fo fhort; yet he could not help notic,-_ 1 ing that there were feveral things aiTertedinthe Speech which he knew to be falfe; that he would only mention one Inftance, viz. his Lawyers beingtwiceinterruptedbyfome of the Jury, after the Proof was clos'd; that the real Fad was, that one of the Jury did defire his Lawyer to be as ( hort as poflible, as the Trial had lafted fo long; that immediately othertvyo of the Jury got up, and in place of interrupting, deli red him to go on, ' and that he would be heard with the greateft Pa- tience. Charles " Stewart'Writer in Bannavie, who was one of the Friends that attended the Prifoner, and was prefent at the Trial, ( without being asked) owned that what the She- riff- fubftitute had faid was the true State of the Fa eft, upon which thePrifoner faid he underftood it otlierways, and was forry if he hadaflert d any thing that was not true: Upon this the Prifoner kneeled and read a very long written Prayer, and then the other Minifter fangPfalms and prayed. The Prifoner took Leave of his Friends, mounted the Lad- der with great Composure and Refoliution, and read a ( hort. written Prayer with an audible Voice.
