Nuiiife, From THURSDAY January IT, Dante Dec. 22. H E Booty mide by the Rob- bers, who lately broke into the Caftle of the Countefs of Olfolmfki, is much more con- fiderable than it was at fitft reprefented. The Villains leaving their Horfes behind a Hedge,' fcrced a Back Door in the Garden, and furprifing the Porter, bound him Hand and Foot, Two Chamber- maids, whom they found in an outer Apartment, they ufed in the fame Manner j then forcing open a Clofet • where the Lady lay, who had been confined to her Bed for three- Years, not content with t ruelly dragging her out of Eed, the Ruffians beat her fo inhumanly, that they broke one of her Arms, and left her for dead. They afterwards broke open every Box, Cupboard, Prefs, & c. and found a Booty of 5000 Ducats in ready Money, % great Number of Jewels, a Gold Chain, a complete Service of Silver, and many other Pieces of Plate, fome of which were inofi culioufly wrought. They carried away likewife a gieat Quantity of rich Cloaths, and many valuable Papers; but the principal Part of the Booty was a Box covered with Copper, which they found under the old Lady's Bed filled with Ducars. All the Search made to difcovei the Villains has hitherto been fruiileffe An ExtraB of a Letter from the Hague, dated Jan. Z. 1 The Deciaiation which the King of Pruffia has juft * made, that he will retain 19500c Crowns of the Silcfia * Loan to indemnify his Subjefls for the Damage they * fuftained by the Englilh Privateers, is an Aft of fuch * Vigour as can fcatcely be paraliel'd; and at the fame ' Time it is thought here, to be fuch an Aft 0/ Juftioe * as every Sovereign owes to his Subjefts, that is, to de- * fend them from all foreign Violence. The Enghlh, ' that juft and generous Nation, we believe cannot take ' this Step of hisPrulfian Majefty a mifs, efpecially as ' that Declaration is accompanied with a Delay of three ' Months, for thofe who are intereftcd to make their ' Defence. His Pruffian Majefty knows how much ' more efficacious PoffefBon is than Petition.' QOUNTRY NEWS. York, Jan. 9. On Tuefday laft was married Mr. Henry Waite, only Son of Mr. Henry Waite, an emi- nent Attorney of this City, to Mifs Robinfon, only Daughter of Nicholas Roiinfon of Thicket Hall, in this County, Efq; a young Lady with a Fortune of 2j, ooo 1.

Yours, D'ANVEJJS. EPIGRAM. I'VE feen fome Countries, tul'd by Iron Rod ; I've reaJ of States, who've felt the Scourge of God: jRTit ne'er till now have feen, or read, I own, Of a whole Nation crufh'd beneath a STONE. Yet of itfelf this STONE'S without Rebuke, , Till fet in Motion by the WIND- MILL D . We hear that an Application will be fpeedily made for procuring fome further Regulations to be made in ( he Proceedings in criminal Caufes, in order to obviate thofe Inconveniences, and prevent thofe Imputations on publick JuJlice, which have made fo much Noife in the IVorld, and have a Tendency to injure that Reputation our LAWS had fo deferned'y acquired ovet all Europe. As it feems to be a Point of Notoriety, that the lotvefl of the People are now as univerfally and as thoroughly corrupt as tie preatejl in other Countries, the molt obvious and certain Remedy feems to be, taking Care of their Pofierity, that the next Age may have fome Chance for Indujlry and Principles, and for that, at leaft, ftand indebted to the prefent. In order 10 this, the- Hint givervof putting all the Parijb Children within the Silti iif .1 ntrhty under the DireBiop of the FOU ND LI, VG HOSPITAL, appears t- 3 be a proper and praSiicable Expedient, and would cer- tainly fu mi lb Servants of bo; h Sexes Muer inftr- ifted, and lefs expofed to Corruption from bad Examples than ary other. Hie feizing and transferring to France M. de la Curfay, is looked upon in Italy AS a very rtftntd Stroke in Po- liticks ; for if this works nothing in favour of the Gernefe, as it is not probable it - mill, the Corficans mult be- con- flicted as incorrigible, and their Country as irrecoverable; in which Cafe what they cannot keep 7' hemfehes, they may as well part with to their Friends and Neighbours. Thutfday his Majefly went in his State Coach; drawn by eight Hojfes, attended by the Marquifs of Har- lingion Mafter of the Horfe, and Lord Delawar, to the Houfe of Peers, when being feaied on his Throne, the Hon. Sir Henry Bellenden, Gentlemen Ufher of ihe Black Rod, did by Order of his Majefty, Command the Attendance of the Hon. Houfe of Commons ; foon after the Speaker with feveral of the Members came to the Bar, when his Majefty opened the Seflion with a moft gr. icious Speech. Yefterday the Right Hon. the Houfe of Peers waited on his Majefly at Sr. Jame's, with their Addrcfs of Thanks for his moft gracious Speech from the Throne on Thurfday laft. To which his Majefty was pleafed to return the following moft gracious Anfwer: My Lords, \ I return you my Thanks for this very loya! and du- 1 tiful Addrefs. Nothing can give tnc greater Satisfac- ' tion, than thefe folemn A durances of the Continu- ' a nee of your Zeal and Affection for my Perfon, Fa- ' niily, and Government. I firmly rely on your Sup- ' port; and you may depend on my hearty Concern ' for your irue Interefts.' On Thnrfday the Right Hon. the Earl of Guilford, the Earl of Bredalba ne, the Lord Cathcarr, and the Bilhopsof Durham and Gloucefter, took the Oaths, and their Seals in the Houfe of Peer?. The following Writs were ordered Ytfterday, by the Hon. Houfe of Commons, to eleft Members in the pre- fent Pailiament in the room of thofe dead, preferred, or fucceeded to Peerage?, viz Beaumaris, Bridgewater, Bi- lhop's Caftle, Cheshire, Bodmin, Lyme, Rutland County, Wendover, Bearalfton, St. Maw's, Weftminfter, and We ft bury. Yefterday at Two o'Clock, Thomas Cotbett, Efq; the new High Bailiff of Weftminfter, with the Crjer on a white Horfe, dreffed with blue Ribands, and fome other Peifbns, all with white Wands, made the follow- ing Proclamation at Co vent- Garden, Chating- Crofs, and other Places : ' Oyez, Thomas Coibett, tfij; High * Bail. IF of Weftminfter, gives Notice, that the Elec- ' tion for a Member of Parliament for the faid City ' and Liberty, in the room of Sir Pcier Warren, Knt. « deceafed, will be holden on Tuefday next the i6ih ' Inftant in ihe Portico of the Parilh Church of St. • Paul Covent- Garden, at Nine o'Clock of the faid ' Morning. God fave ihe King. We hear that Petitions for private Bills muft be pre fented before the 7th of March. It is faid the Land Tax will be reduced to two Shil- lings a Pound the enfuing Year. On Wednefday laft was held a Board of Treafury, when a Scheme for a Lottery to raife 600,000 1. was hid before their Lordibips; which we hear has been re- jefted, to the great Joy of all Well- wifhers 10 Trade. His Majefty has been pleafed to appoint George Au- guft us Selwyn, Efj; 10 fucceed his la e Father, John Selwyn, Efq; in the Poft of Clerk of ihe Crov. n in the Iflarcd of Barbadoes, & c. and a new Writ is ordered out for Lugerflull in Wilts,- for which Place he is Member of Parliament, and will be re- cliofe without Oppo- firion. The Lords of the Admiralty have put the Union Man of War into Commifiion, and given the Command to Capr. Matthew Buckle. Thutfday came on at Joiners- Hall, the Eleftion of a Beadle of the faid Company, in the room of John Boyce, . deceafed, when John Boyce, Son oF the deceafed, was chofe by a very great Majority. A few Days fince Dr. Rofs, an eminent Phyfician, was'married at the Hot Wells near Briftol, to Mifs Middleton ; a young Lady with a Fortune of 10, © 00 1. befides large Expectancies upon the Death of an Uncle. On Monday laft died at Languard- Fort, —— Hayes, Efq; who was many Years Deputy Governor of that Garrifon. Thutfday Morning died at his Houfe in Chelfea, Sir Hans Sloane, Bart, very much advanced in Years, but blefs'd with all his Faculties of Underftanding to the la ft of his Life. He has left two Daughters; one is Lady of the Right Hon. the Lord Cadogan, and the other the Widow of Stanley, Efq; of Hants. He has direfted by his Will, that his valuable Mu- feuin ( which coft him upwards of jo, oool. in colleft- ing, exclufive of the many Prefents he received, which are worth upwards of 10,000 1.) fhould, for the Sake of preferving it in this Kingdom, be offered to his Ma- jefly at the Price of 20,000 1. The Value of the Me- dals, Oars, & c. alone reckoned at the current Price of Gold and Silver, is faid to amount to feveral Thoufand Pounds. A iS Thutfday laft died, at Bethnal Green, Mr. Jofepti Wefton, formerly a Mercer 111 the Borough. On Wednefday Night tbe Right Hon. the Lord Chan- cellor, returning from the Duke of Ncvvcaftle'. s. to Powis Houfe in a Sedan Chair, the Night being tempefluous4 was, by a fudden Guft of WinJ, oveffer, notwithftand- ing the Chairman's utmoft Efforts to prevent it ; but his Lordfhip received no material Injury. Laft Night about the Middle of the Play* at Covent- Garden Theatie, a Gentleman who fat in one of ths1 Gallery Boxes, alk'd another, who fat next him, if he could lend liim a Knife ; on being told he could notj the former pull'd out a fmall Penknife and ftabb'd him- feif ; which occafion'd fome Confufion in that Part of the Houfe ; he was immediately carried to Shakefpear's Head, and Mr. Baker the Surgeon drefs'd the Wound* which the Gentleman fufFei'd with gie3t Conftraint. He would not tell who he was, nor what was the Caufe ot this rafh Action. On Thurfday in the Afternoon an ancient Woman who lodged at a Carpenter's in Little- Jermin- Street, St. James's, was found burnt to Death in her Room. No Perfon can tell how this melancholy Accident happened. The People of the Houfe fmelling a Smell of Fire, Went up Stairs, and found her on the Floor with one of her Arms burnt off, and her Breaft burnt in fo miferable a Manner, that one might difcern her Heart. A Choco- late Pot was found over the Fire, and ' tis imagined ihat in warming the Chocolate, her Cloatli3 took Fire, fur the Floor where fhs lay had burnt almoft to the Joifts. By a Letter from Glaftonbury we hear that a vail Concourfe of People attended the Thorn on Chriftmas- Eve, New- Stile ; but 10 their gteat Difappointment, there was no Appearance of its blowing, which made them watch it narrowly the fifth of January, the Chtift- mas- Day, Old- Stile, when it Mowed as ufual, and in one Day's Time was as white as a Sheet, to the great Mortification of many Families in that Neighbourhood, who had tapp'd their Ale eleven Days too loon* The Beginning of laft Week one Sarah Thomas, a Giil about twenty Years of Age, declared to feveral People, and among therjft, to the High Conftable of Holbotirn, that ttieGhoft of a Man had appeared to her in her Mothet's Houfe in Bloomftiu'ry, and told her that five Years ago he had been murdered in that Houfe ; and at the fame Time informed lierr who had been his Murderers, with many other Particulars. The fame Story fee repeated before Juftice Fielding in the Pre- fence of feveral Gentlemen and Ladies, and with the uttnoft Confidence offered to fwear to the Truth of it, pioceeding4b fat as to the taking the Book in her Hand. It was difficult to imagine what Motive could induce the Girl to forge a Lie of this Kind, till Monday laft, when an Information being laid againft the Girl's Mo- ther for felling fpirituous Liquors without Licence, it appeared, that the Ghoft had already brought fo much gocd Company to the Houfe, and the Mother had pro- vided fo well for their Enteitainment, that feveral Calks of Brandy were feized by an Officer, and the Woman, who was fined five Pounds, prefently depofited the Mo- ney. " Yefterday Mottling as Mr. Nowell, an Attorney in Grays Inn, was coming over Blackheath from Sir Gre- gory Page's, he was attack'd by a { ingle Highwayman, drefied in a Butcher's Frock, mounted on a Bey Gelding pretty much rode, who prefented a Piftol to him and demanded his Money, with a' How d'ye do; I crave ' a New- Yeat's- Gift, which if you refufe, by G— I'll ' difpatch you immediately.' Mr. Novvell afked him • if he was in F. arneft 5 to which he replied, ' Sir, it is ' New- Year's Day, and a New- Year's- Gift I demand ' from you ;' on which Air. Nowell gave him four Shillings, with which he was very well contented, and rode off. By the Behaviour of the Fellow it is thought he is out of his Senfes, for he threw the Money on the Ground. Laft Wednefday Noon a young Gentleman unus'd to tile Town, going by St. Clement's Churcii in the Strand, was ftrongly prefs'd by a Man in a Sailor's Drefs, 10 look at fome India Handkerchiefs, which he profefs'd to fell him very cheap : The young Gentleman conferr- ing, the Man led him to a dark bye Houfe up a Yard, and fhewed him into a Room, where there lay a Perfon in Bed, who, he pretended, was his Aunt. He then produced his Handkerchiefs, and without being defired, begin to cut fome off the Piece ; but the young Gentle- man not much liking his Situation, watched the Op- portunity of the Fellow's Back being turned, and open- ing the Door, made off as faft as he could. Thurfday the Seffions began at the Old Baily, when twenty Prisoners wete tried, Two whereof were capi- tally convifted, viz. John Briant for a Street- Robbery, and Patrick Nu- gent for a Burglary. Twelve were caft for Tranfpottation, and fix ac- quitted. John Love tried fot marrying Catherine Apleford, his former Wife being living, found Guilty. Yefterday thirteen Prifoners were tried at the Old- Baily, one of whom was capitally convifted, viz. William Baldwin, fot robbing Thomas Mott, of a Watch and fixieen Shillings in the Dwelling Houfe of Rofe Sykes. Six weie caft for Tranfportauon, and fix acquitted. •\\ 7HEREASat a Weetin2 tie'< 1 at Shipton, V V the 181I1 of December i7ia, t'urfuant to the Adver- tifjmmts in rite I . ondnn Evening Poft, York Cotiranr, and Leeds Mercti y, to coil lifter of an Adt for a Turnpike for re- pairing the Highways between Keighley in the County of York, and Kirkby- Kendal in the County of Weftmoreland, it was the Opinion of a grear Majority, that the faid High- ways might be well and fufficiently repaired by fuch Methods as are appointed by rlie Laws now in force, without bur- dening the Country with Turnpike Tolls, aud refolved that all Surveyors, or tliofe who might hereafter be Surveyors of Highways, within the Towns and Villages oil the fuid Road, fliould be profecuted if they lhoulJ hereafter negk- dt their Du- ty, by a proper Perfon for that Purpofe appointed by the faid Majority.

GREAT' BRITAIN'J Own CONCERN; o R, The ADVA NTAG E S - of the HERRING FISHERY Confider'd. ' HAT unaccountable Bias, which is fo flrong JL againft every Thing that is, or is call'd, A new In- itntkn; that Spirit ol Levity, which induces little Minds to ridicule all great Undertakings ; and that fufpicioiis. Humour, which always difcovers fjmething bad at Bottom, whenever public Spirit is declared to be the Moava to any Pefign ; were never fo llron^ ly in- terwoven, as iu she Exceptions taken to the Bririfb Her- ring fllheTy. Sometimes it was a modern Cfumera, proper to amufe warm Fancies, but fcen through by Men of Sen ft- ; fometunes, it was an antiquated Notion revived, which Experience had fnewn to be impracti- cable ; fometimes it was a Bufinefs that poflibly might fucceed if it had fallen into other Hands; in fhorr, fome- times it was an empty Project, and fomeiimes an arrant Tobb. But what is it now ? We have heard of feveral Propofals for employing the Poor, plaufi'oie in Appear- ance, but fcarce practicable in Point of Execuiion ; at moft only fit for Cities, and great Towns. We have feen an Adverifemtnt from'the Council of the Herring Filhery for employing the Poor any where, and at their own Homes. Other Schemes pretended only to relieve them at lefs Expence ; this will provide for them by their own Labour, and that Labour will draw what is to pay for it from other Nation?. Can this be called either a Chimera or a Jobb ? The Braiding of Nets for the Year 1755 will amount to three thoufand Pounds. A fmall Sum confidered in one Light, a very large one confider'd in ano her. it the Filhery can do this in its Infancy, what will it do, or rather, what will it not do in its full Growth ? If the Blolfom be fo fair, what may tfle Public, what may Pofterity expedt, when the Tree comes to be loaded with Fruit ? There will be next Year fixty- feven BuiTes employ'd ; a new Market has been open'd for this Commodity to our Sugar lilands, with this lingular Advantage, That what is a Saving to them brings Riches to us. A little feafocable Attention, with fume fmall, but pioper, En- couragements, would open feveral other Markets, and COpfequently ex'end and enlarge tfje Benefits that have already acctued, and are yearly accruing' from this Trade. The Encouragements given to it will carry no Money out of the Kingdom, but will in the firft Iaftance con- tribute to ihe Maintenance of many, and, in their Con- ference, bring large Returns of Weal'h home. If the original Propof„ ls to Parliament of thofe who favouted the Briiifh Herring Fifliery when it was no more than a ProjeiT, under whofe Care, and by whofe Application it is now become what it is, are confulted3 it will be f>> und that a Provifion for the Poor, and a Refource for manning the Royal Navy, were amongft the great'Benefits that Were promifed on its Behalf. The former nas been already touched, let us now turn our Eyes to the latter. The Whale and Herring Fifheries will, in 1753, employ three thoufand Men. This is a Tenth Part Addition to perhaps our prtfent Naval Strength : And this has been dose in three Years from the Time thofe Fifhsries were fet on Feot. Beginnings are always weak ; but from Beginnings like thefe, what may we sot expedl in Time ? What may we not expeft even in feven Years ? Wiio, that is accuftomed to Ar- gument, but fees the Force of this Ileafoning ? Who that hears of the Endeavours ufed in other Nations to raife a Naval Force, but muft confefs that as this won- derful Addition to our own is not only probable, but in a Manner certain, it is reafonable alfo in the higheft Degree, and will enable us to fecuie thofe great Preroga- tives which have hitherto done fuch Honour to this Nation, and by which all the Blefiings we boaft muft he ever protected and preferved ? The Wifdom of that great Alfembly which is now fitting, will, it is hoped, xnfure to us all, and even more, than has been promifed from the Herring Fifhery.
