\ VOL. XXXI. TUESDAY, January 30, 1753. No. 1595. They write from Dresden, that they are compleating, as fast as possible, all the Saxon Troops. They also inform us of a terrible Fire that broke out, about a Fortnight ago, at Strebla, a little Town on the Elb, and reduced the same almost entirely to Ashes. Lastly, We hear from Rome, that Discord runs so high a- mong the Catholics in Palestine, and particularly at Jeru- salem, that the Congregation paganda Fide has re- solved to send thither some new Missionaries, with Orders and Instructions to do their best towards bringing those de- generate Christians to Order. From the UTRECHT GAZETTE. LONDON, Jan. 12. Tho' several of our Papers already talk of the King's Return to Germany next Spring, the Public may be assured that there is nothing decided in regard to that Journey ; on the contrary, there is great Reason to presume it will not take Place. - There is nothing to be added to the Plan for the Election of a King of the Ro- mans ; all the Measures to make it succeed were taken whilst the King was at Hanover: So that nothing remains now but to put those Measures in Execution 5 and this is what his Majesty is endeavouring at in conjunction with the Courts that are in the same Disposition. Scotland. EDINBOURG, Jan. 16. Saturday last a Whale, of about 56 Feet long, was cast ashore upon the Sands, about a Mile Eastward of Cockenzy, which has been since visited by Numbers of People of all Ranks from Edinbourg and the Neighbourhood ; and the Whale- fishing Company are now busy in cutting it down, for the Interest of those con- cerned. It is said several other Whales have been seen in the Firth within these few Days past. From the LONDON EVENING POST. QUERIES Recommended to the CONSIDERATION of the PUBLIC. WHeTHER any Number of voluntarily as- sociating together without legal Authority, can, with Propriety, be called a Committee, or be justified in accepting, refusing, or compounding, of Penalties inflicted by Act of Parliament ? 2. Whether the Magistrates, appointed to execute the Laws, have not sufficient Power for that Purpose, without the Aid and Assistance of such Associators ? 3. Whether the Laws against Maintenance were not made to prevent any Persons from joining together to support, as- sist, or encourage, either of the contending Parties in a Suit at Law ; it being certain that where such a Combina- tion is formed against one Man, he must tho' with the justest Cause, be obliged to submit to his Adversary, or run the Risk of being undone in the unequal Contest ? 4. Whether it is not oppresive and unjust for such Asso- ciators to prosecute Suits against any of his Majesty's Sub- jects in unknown Persons' Names, when, should the Defen- dants prevail, they can have no Remedy for their Costs a- gainst such unknown Plaintiffs ? 5. Whether the Encouragement given to Informers in re- spect to the Game- laws has not a strong Tendency to raise up a more idle and dissolute Set of People than even the Poachers themselves ? and, Whether great Numbers of Poa- chers, and other idle Persons, are not daily employed, in and about this Great Metropolis, to buy Game of Higlers, and sell it to honest and unwary Tradesmen, on purpose to sub- ject them to the Penalty of the Game- laws ? London, January 23. Extempore EPIGRAM on THE TALE of the DAY. SOME say TOM, and some say JOHN, And some are still for HARRY ; Go out, come in, the Thing's all one, Unless your MEASURES vary. SELECT OCCURRENCES. 1. Sunday the Right Hon. the Earl of Harecourt kissed his Majesty's Hand on his being appointed Comptroller and Surveyor General of the Petty Customs in the Port of London and the River Medway, in the room of Lord Morton, deceased, [ as mentioned in our last] a Patent- place, worth upwards of 1500I. a Year. 2. Thomas Noel, Esq; is elected Knight of the Shire for the County of Rutland, in the room of his Brother, James Noel, Esq; deceased. 3. Charles Crewe, Esq; is elected Knight of the Shire for the County of Chester, in the room of his Brother, John Crewe, Esq; deceased. 4. Lord Viscount Bulkeley is elected Member for the Town of Beaumaris, in the Isle of Anglesey, in the room of his Father, deceased. And 5. Sir Francis Henry Drake, Bart, one of the Clerks Comptrollers of his Majesty's Houshold, is re- elected for the borough of Beeralston in the County of Devon. 6. ' Tis said the Duty on Glass will be taken off. 7. The Elector of ******* has in his Cabinet, a very fine Picture of a Group of Mice at the Mercy of a Cat, on which, with visible Marks of Anguish and Terror, they turn their Eyes, expecting which will be the Victim. T'other Day an Inscription was found fixed to the Frame, with these Words, The present State of *******; and, over the Cat's Head, the Name of a Great Prince. 8. We hear that, in case the Electorate of Hanover is attacked, it will be assisted by the Princes of Saxgotha and Hesse. 19. 1 he Right Hon. the Lords of tiie Admiralty have put the following 18 Men of War into Commission as Guard- Ships, and slationed them thus Ships. Invincible, Monarch,. Kent, Berwick, Fouguex, Anson, Tyger, Vanguard, Northumberland Mars, Augusta, Eagle, Salisbury, Bristol, Culloden, Somerset, Yarmouth, Cumberland, Captains. Robert Pett. Roger Martin. G. Brydges Rodney. Charles Catford. Richard Hughes. Charles Holmes. Samuel Marshal. Frederick Rogers. Lord Colvall. John Amhurst. Hon. J. Byron. Thomas Latham. Thomas Knowler. Hugh Palliser. Henry Ward. Harry Powlett. William Brett, Thomas Andrews. 10. It is said some other Men of War, lately put into Commission, are designed for the Baltic. 11. They write from the West of Scotland, that the Linen Manufacturers there are arrived at fuch Perfection in - making Cambiics and Lawns, both Flowered and Plain, that the Stamp- masters often take them for Foreign, and have lately detained several Parcels ' till the Owners brought: Evidence they were really Home manufacture. 1 2. In the Third Codicil of the late Sir Hans Sloane's Will, written on two sheets of Parchment and dated July 1749, ( ten Years after the Date of the Will) and published again Dec. 26, 1751, Sir Hans omits the Royal Society, the University of Oxford, and the College of Edinbourg, to whom he had directed, by the Will itself his Collec- tion of Medals, Gems, & c. to be offered. In this Co- dicil he nominates Trustees, whom he desires to offer them ( his Medals, & c.) to the King, or Parliament, the first Ses- sion after his Decease, at 20,000l, which he believes not to be a Fourth Part of their real and intrinsic Value. If the King and Parliament decline accepting them within Twelve Months, they are to be offered, at the same Price, 1 ft, to the Academy of Sciences at Petersbourg, 2dly, to the Royal Academy of Sciences at Paris, 3dly, to the Royal Academy of Sciences at Berlin, and, lastly, to the Royal Academy of Sciences at Madrid; each of which is to be allowed Twelve Months from the Time Notice is gi- ven to their Embassador, or Resident, in England. " If the King, or Parliament, accept of the Offer, the Trustees are to apply to the Legislature for Power and Funds to ena- ble them to preserve maintai, and continue, the Collec- tion at Chelsea, where it will be shewn, under proper Re- gulations, for the Satisfaction of the Curious, and Improve- ment of Knowledge. 13. We hear from Newcastle, that the Trustees of the Stockton Turnpike- road to Bernard castle have resolved to present a Petition to Parliament for an Act to oblige all Persons, travelling with Carriages drawn upon that Road, to enlarge the Breadth of such Carriage- wheels to a certain Standard, for the better Preservation of the Road. 14. They write from Ryegate, in Surrey, that the Di- stemper among the Horned Cattle is lately broke out there in a violent Manner, where it has never been before ; occa- sioned by the Jobbers buying up Cattle in infected Places, and carrying them about the Country, and selling them again. One Man had the Misfortune to buy 14 Beasts of one of these Fellows, 10 of which died very soon. ' Tis said that these Jobbers have lately carried the Distemper to above 40 Places round the Country, where it never was before. [ so that, if some effectual Measures be not speedily taken with these Fellows, in vain are all the Care and Pains of his Majesty and the Legistature to prevent the spreading of this terrible Distemper, and the Country will he never free of it] SHIPS Lost, & C. The Jupiter, Freace, from New york for London, is lost two Leagues from Boulogne all the Crew lived; but one Passenger drowned. Yesterday came Advice, that the Crowned Herring;, of and for Dantzick, is lost neat the Loo ; the Crew and part of the Cargo saved, A Dutch Dogger is lost also near the Loo, and all the Crew drowned. The Johannes, Bugdale, for Dantzic, is lost on the Coast of Sweden, The John and Bella, Benson, from Maryland for White-, haven, is ashore near Dublin. And Yesterday came an Account, that several Ships are lost off Dunkirk, HONEST and SOBER ADVICE to the REMNANT of PATRIOTS. LET Measures, not Men, be the Objects of OPPOSITION; and never be guilty your- selves of what you condemn in others. If Vice should ever prevail, and im- pious Men bear Sway, be Patterns of Virtue and Godliness; so shall your Ex- ample put yeur Adversaries to open Shame. Make proper Allowances for the Weakness of Human Na- ture in those who dissent from you ; and if their Conduct in Private Life is irreproachable, be not forward to con- demn their Behaviour in Public Station : However, be not fo far prejudiced by Appearances in this Refpeft, as to ap- prove of any Thing detrimental to the Public, meerly be- caufe the Advisers of it may be honest, moral Men in a Private Capacity, While the Public is in Debt, Private Frugality becomes all Men, because that Debt not only endangers the Well- be- ing, but even the Existence, of the Body- politic. There- fore, be not seduced by the Example of Men in Place and Power, follow not the Fashion when it leads to Public or Private Ruin ; and ( above all Things) remember it is not in Man's Power to say, with respect to indulging himself in vicious Courses, Thus far will I go, and here will I stop ! Let Virtue and Public Spirit produce in you the same Con- cert and Unanimity which the Wages of Prostitution do in others; otherwise, your Opposition never will be crowned with Victory Consider how a Form of Godliness overpowered a better Cause about the Middle of the last Century. Hence learn what the Spirit and Power of it might do. Avoid the Rock on which the Hypocrites split themselves and the Na- tion. They only blazed for a few Years; their Triumph vanished in Smoke ; and their ill concerted Plan succeeded a Deluge of Infidelity and Immorality.— Therefore, as Christians, seek first the Kingdom of Heaven ; pursue earthly Felicity like Philosophers ; and so shall neither Vice nor Folly, Fraud nor Corruption, Foreign nor Domestic Foe, be able to stand before you. Wednesday" s and Thursday's POSTS. Arrived a MAIL from Holland. ROME, December 30. THE Pope having resolved to make a Re- form in the Expences of Government, his Holiness has ordered an Account thereof to be laid before him, that he may re- trench all Charges that shall be found needless or superfluous. [ This being a Popish Example, we dare not say it is wor- thy of Imitation here.] STOCKHOLM, [ the Metropolis of Sweden] Jan. 5. The King continues to assist regularly at the Deliberations of the Senate, and takes all Opportunities of promoting the Ma- nufactures of this Kingdom. A few Days ago, his Ma- jesty made a numerous Promotion of Military Officers. VIENNA, Jan. 6. The Baron de Burmania, Envoy- ex- traordinary from the States General, had a private Au- dience, a few Days ago, with the Chancellor Count d'Uh- leseldt, in relation to the Affairs that are to be regulated in the Conferences at Brussels; when the Chancellor assured that Minister, That the most precise Orders upon that Sub- ject had been sent above three Weeks ago, and that the Commissaries of the Empress- queen were sufficiently in- structed to put an End to that Affair immediately, to the Satisfaction of the interested Parties. HAGUE, Jan 17. We expect in a little Time, to re- ceive some positive Intelligence concerning the new Treaty of Commerce and Friendship between France and this Re- public. In the mean Time, it is already settled that the Exemption from the Duty of 100 Sols per Ton shall be continued in regard to the Dutch Ships trading in the Ports of France. FOREIGN HISTORY, from our Private Correspondents. According to our Advices from the Frontiers of Tur- key, they are making such Preparations in that Empire, as seem to indicate a Design in the Porte to intermeddle openly in the Affairs of Persia. It is also said, in these Advices, that, since the Defeat of Shah Doub, who has retired to Bagdad, the Persians have elected a third Pretender, in or- der to oppose Prince Heraclius. By Letters from Vienna, we find such strong Appearances of a Continuance of Peace, that they are very diligent in raising Recruits all over the hereditary Provinces of the House of Austria. The same Letters also take Notice of a Grand Conference held at the Palace about some impor- tant Dispatches received from London and several Courts of the Empire. LETTER from Abington, in Berkshire, Jan. 19. " This Town ( at least the honest Part of it) hath, this week, worn a Face of perfect Chearfulness. " Our worthy Representative came here on Monday, and. the Day following, offered himself a Candidate at the next General Election. He was accompanied round the Town by a great Number of the most substantial Voters, and approved Friends to the real Interest of this Corpora- tion ; an Appearance much more agreeable to every British Elector than Mobs rioting while their Families starve, or Agents possessed of public Employments, which might be more laudably bestowed in Diminution of some of our most grie- vous Taxes. " The Success of this Canvass was best known by the Countenances of all our Adversaries, who, we imagine, are now convinccd that their premature Disturbance of our Manufactories and Quiet is not likely to attain their Ends in this Place, however opposite to, and destructive of, its Wealth and industry." BEHEADED, at Warsaw, in Poland, A Young LADY, named Chilinoka, on the 28th of last Month. She had been in the Service of the Countess Pa- latine of Culm, after whose Death, fhe lived some Time with the Count, whom she not only robbed of Money and other EfFects, but propagated several scandalous Reports concerning him, accusing him, among other Things, of holding a Correfpondence with a neighbouring Power, of forming a Design against his [ Polish] Majefty, and of hav- ing a Design upon the Count de Bruhl's Life. In short, this Woman, having determined the Destruction of the Palatine, left no Stone unturned to accomplish her Design, by gaining a great Number of People over to her interest, by publishing divers Papers, and by Declarations which she made in the Courts of Justice. - Before her Execu- tion, the Defamatory Writings which she had published were burnt by the Executioner in her Presence. And strict Enquiry is making after the Perfons whom she had en- gaged in her Interest, in order to bring them likewise to Justice. DRUNKENNESS,— its True Nature, & c. By Mr. BURKETT. ITS Parts and Periods are usually thus reckoned, viz. ;. Apish Gestures; 2. Much Talking, 3. Immoderate Laughing ; 4. Dulness of Sense ; 5. Scurrility, that is, wan- ton, or jeering, or abusive Language ; 6. An useless Under- standiug ; 7. Stupid Sleep ; and 8. Epilepsics, or Fallings and Reelings, and beastly Vomitings. The least of these, even when the Tongue begins to be untied, is a Degree of Drunkenness. Often consider with thyself, what a finning Sin, what a beastly Sin, and what a destroying Sin, the Sin of Intem- perance is! ' Tis an Inlet to all Sin, and, for that Reason perhaps, is not particularly forbidden in any one of the COMMANDMENTS), because it is contrary to them all. Drun- kenness may be called a Breach of every one of the Com- mandments, because it disposes Men to break them all. What Sin is it that a drunken Man stands not ready to commit, Fornication, Murder, Adultery, Incest, and what not! And how doth this Sin transform a Man into a Beast, and make him the Shame and Reproach of Human Nature ! Of the two, it is much worse to be like a Beast than to be a Beast: The Beast is what GOD has made it; but the Drun- kard is what Sin and the Devil have made him. Add to this, that the intemperate Man is his own Tormentor, yea, his own Destroyer ; as appears by the many Diseases, and untimely Death, which Surfeiting and Drunkenness daily bring upon Men: for as Temperance and Sobriety is the Nurse and Preserver of Life and Health, so Excess in either is the Occasion of Self murder-, ' tis a lingering Poison, which, tho' it works slowly, yet, destroys surely. Consider, lastly, that Intemperance is a Sin which a Man cannot presently repent of as soon as he has committed it. A drunken Man is no more fit to repent than a dead Man : And what Assurance has any Man that, when Drunkenness closes his Eyes over night, he shall not open them in Hell- flames next Morning? How many Thousands have closed tHeir Eyes in a drunken Fit, and opened them in another World ! MASQUERADES, alias BALLS, Mr. BULSTRODE'S Opinion of, in a Speech to the GRAND JURY of Middlesex. I Can't help repeating that thefe are a Scene of Lewdness, a Congress entirely to an unclean End : The Debau- chery is there begun, and finished in the Neighbourhood. A dangerous, a very dangerous Step these virtuous Ladies take, who, out of an impertinent Curiosity, go there. There! where Women, lewd Women, dress in Men's Habits, that they may vent their Obscenity more freely, and that to their own Sex ; and where Men dress in the Female Habit, to give and receive a Flood of unclean, and to the, luscious Conversation. Had MasqueradeS been in use at the Time of the A- postles, it would have been impossible Christianity could have had any Success, could have gained any Ground, where thofe had been practised. One Masquerade would have carried off more Christians from the Christian Faith, and the Purity of a Christian Life, than the raising Ten Men from the Dead would have kept in it. HEREFORD, Jan. 23. This is to give NOTICE, THAT the FAIRS, usually held in this City, will be kept on the Customary Days, viz. on the 1st Tuesday after Candlemas- day, on Wednesday in the Easter Week, on the 20th of June, and on the 9th of October. CHA. BISSE, Mayor, and Clerk of the Market. Bengworth, Worcestershire, Jan. 16. WHereas I Anthony Roper, Tanner, of this Place, having been lately engaged in Partnership with Messrs. Kemmet and Gardiner, did, upon Dissolution of our said Partnership, utter some Words which might possibly tend to the Discredit of my said Partners, particularly to that of Mr. Gardiner; I do hereby publicly acknowledge. That whatsoever I might say was merely the Fruit of Passion, and that I am heartily sorry for the same, and that the said Mr. Gardiner neither did at that Time, nor does now, owe me any Sum of Money, on account of the said Partnership, or on any other Account whatsoever.

MULLINGAR, [ in Ireland] Jan. 14, As Thursday Evening Thomas Casey was committed to the Gaol of this Town, who is one of the greatest Villains that ever infested any Country. Not content to take Part like other Thieves, he lately drove away the whole Flock of a Dairyman near this Place, consisting of 23 Ewes. His Uncle has been, for some Months past, Without Cattle of any Kind ; for whatever Casey found upon his Uncle's Land be drove to the first Fair and sold. Armed with a Blunderbuss and a long Knife, he defied the Country ; and the Harbourers were fo faithful in his Inte- rest, that they never would betray him : And he might have continued much longer a Terror to the Country, had not Duke Tyrrel, Esq; our High- sheriff, observed him quar- relling last Thursday with a Butcher, near the Gaol, when the Sheriff seized him, and demanded the Assistance of the People, who refused him ; but at last the Sheriff trip- ped him up, and the Butcher assisted in dragging him on his Back to the Gaol, where he now lies. London, January 25. POLITICS, 1. The Managers of a certain Great Stage, influenced by Experience, begin to be more circumspect than formerly in the Choice of Actors, and are at length satisfied that an arbitrary Casting of Parts is very detrimental, and that any Man cannot be rendered fit for any Thing merely by giving it Him. 2. It is said that Measures will be taken to prevent Ships from failing without a Chaplain, through the dropping a single Man in their Complement, which, it is apprehended, has been attended with many bad Consequences: And it is also said these Chaplains will be examined, recommended, and licensed, by a Prelate, that it may be certain they are Men of Letters and Morals. 3. As the Business of the Reduction of Troops is settled in a neighbouring Country, the other public Points, of the Sale of Offices for the public Benefit, the declaring a Free Port, and reftoring the Marine, will gradually make their Way, it being at length discovered, by their ablest Politicians, that the shortest Way to make any State considerable in the Eyes of others is for her Rulers to mind her own Concerns. 4. On Sunday Night last his Majesty was pleased to ap- point Mr. Baron Give to be a Judge in the Court of Com- mon- Pleas, in the room of Sir Thomas Burnet, deceased; and to appoint Sir Richard Adams, Recorder of this City, to be a Baron of the Exchequer, in the room of the said Mr. Clive. Charles Medlicott, Esq; is chosen Member for the Borough of St. Maws, in Cornwall, in the room of Lord Sundon, deceased. 6. We hear a Bill will be brought into Parliament to pre- vent the plundering wrecked Vessels, & c. And 7. It is said, in order to guard more effectually against the Plague's being brought into any Part of his Majesty's Dominions, some new Regulations will be made by Au- thority of Parliament, to be observed by all Ships, which come from infected Places, in performing Quarantine. 8. The Whitehall Evening Post informs us, that the Re- port [ mentioned in our last Journal] of the Three per Cent. Annuities being intended to be converted into Life Annu- ities is without Foundation, and that nothing more will be thought of, this Year, than paying off the unconsolidated Three per Cents, and the Navy and Victualling Debts. 9. This Day was held a General Court of the South- Sea Company, when a Dividend of Two per Cent, was declared on the Capital Stock of the said Company for the Half year ending the 5th Instant, payable the 14th of next Month. to. Tuesday a Commendam passed the Great Seal of England to enable the Right Rev. Anthony Ellis, Lord- Bishop of St. David's, to hold, in Commendam with that Bishopric, the United Rectories of St. Olave, in the Old Jewry, and St. Martin, Ironmonger lane, London; and also a Prebendary in the Cathedral church of Gloucester. 11. The same Day a Dispensation passed the Great Seal to enable the Rev. William Cooke, M. A. Chaplain to his Grace the Duke of Beaufort, to hold the Vicarage of Enford, in the County of Wilts and Diocese of Salis- bury, together with the United Rectories of Didmarton and Oldbury, in the County and Diocese of Gloucester. 12. We are assured that, in regard to the Libel [ men- tioned in this Journal of the 16th Inst.] against Mr. Mauper- tius, his Prussian Majesty sent for the supposed Author into his Closet, and, having shewed him the whole Impression, which he caused to be seized, burnt one of them before his Face, and admonished him to do nothing of that Kind for the future : But a new Edition, printed in some other Part of Germany, being quickly distributed all over Berlin, Orders were immediately given that it should be burnt pub- J licly by the Hands of the Common Executioner, that the World might be apprised of the true Merit of the Work. 13. They write from New- England, that several Ships have lately arrived at Marble head with German Protestants from Holland, in order to settle in the Eastern Parts of that Province. Further Account of LOSSES at SEA, & c. Yesterday we received Advice, that the Lovely Betty, Jackson, from Africa and North- Carolina, is lost off Kin- sale, and the Commander and most of the Crew drowned. The Lark, Keate, is lost at Cette, and one of the Crew drowned ; and Three other Vessels are lost at the same Place, but their Names are not mentioned. The John, Butler, from St. Martin's to the Isle of Man, is lost near St. Margaret's, but the Crew and Part of the Cargo are saved. They write from Kingston, in Jamaica, of the 28th of October, that they were informed by one Mr. Davis, who was coming Passenger from Philadelphia in the Brigan- tine Richmond, Capt. Rees, but brought there from Turks- Island by Capt. Bethel, of the Sloop John, from New- York, that, meeting with a severe Gale of Wind on the 23d of September last, off the East Side of Turks- Island, the Vessel was beat almost to Pieces, and they with Diffi- culty, in the Long- boat, reached the said Island. Captain Middleton, in a Sloop from Jamaica, for Bermuda, shared the same Fate. There were several Guns oi Distress heard in the Night, which they apprehended were fired by Vessels that might be in their Condition. The Storm continued from One o'Clock in the Morning ' till Five the next Even- ing, insomuch that there was a large Bank on the East Side of the Island entirely washed away by the Sea and Rain. By Letters from Philadelphia, dated Dec 14, we learn, that the above Capt. Rees of that Place, who was call away on Turks- Island, in his Passage to Jamaica, was ar- rived there, and informed them, that the Storm happened on the 12th of September, O. S. and was so violent, that the Bottom of his Vessel foon parted from her upper Works; and that, with the greatest Difficulty, he and his People got ashore in their Long boat; that, when they got ashore, they were often obliged to throw themselves flat on the Ground, to hinder their being carried away by the Vio- lence of the Wind, and that the People on the Island lost above 20,000 Bushels of Salt during the Storm. He like- wise says, that there was a good deal of Damage done at and near Providence by a Gale of Wind that happened afterwards; that one Ship was cast away ; another belong- ing to Liverpool lost her Masts; and that Capt. Ccx, in a Sloop was afhore high and dry; besides other Losses, which he could not be particular in. Capt. Edwards, late of the Ship Ruby, of Philadelphia, was also arrived in that Town. He was cast away coming thro' the Gulph, in his Passage from Jamaica, on the 3d of November last, and boarded by a Number of Indians, who stripped him and his People of every Thing, not leaving fo much as a Jacket. His Chest, in which was a great deal Money, he likewife lost, tho' he made several Attempts to r t f J r save it. He then got into the Long boat, taking, with great Difficulty, some Provifions and Water from the Ship, and in four Days got to Georgia, and from thence to Charles town in South- Carolina. A Ship, a French Snow, and a Sloop, ( supposed to belong to New- York, a Sloop belonging to that Place being in Company before the Storm happened) were all ashore at the same Time with Capt. Edwards, and all plundered, he imagines, by the Indians. And there were 14 Sail of Vessels in Sight of one another a short Time before the Storm began, most of which, it is to be feared, have shared the same Fate with those above mentioned. LETTER from Bristol, Jan. 25 " A few Days ago, Mrs. Hannah Pitfield, who travels with Lace, was attacked on Mendip- hill, between Wells and Bath, by two Men well- mounted, one on a black, and the other on a bay Horse, who robbed her of ail her Lace and Money, to the Value of 45I. 17s. 6d. and threatened to strip her naked and leave her on the Common, or blow her Brains out, if the did not swear she would not tell of it as she went along ; after which, they rode off with their Booty. By this Misfortune, the poor Woman, who is a widow with Nine Children, is entirely ruined. " Last Week, as a Man was travelling on foot through Colnbrook in his Way to this City, he accidentally joined Three others, who walked with him some Time, but, be- fore they came to Slough, they robbed and stripped him, and afterwards cut his Throat. He now lies very ill at Slough ; however, as they missed his Windpipe, ' tis hoped he will recover." By the Aaticnt Laws of this Kingdom, long since the Conquest, a manifest Attempt to murder was equally capital with Murder itself. Quaere, For what Reason, and by what Authority, hath this so sensible and excellent an institution been altered, or why is it not revived ? At this Day, the most fla- gitious Attempt to murder, heightened with Barbarity, and every atrocious Circumstance whatever, ( unless with a Design to rob, which, it reality, rather lessens the Wickedness of the Intention) can be only punished as a Misdemeanour. MARRIED,— Last Week, at Busselton, in Somersetshire, Mr. Thomas Scott, jun. an eminent Merchant of the City of London, to Mifs Hawker, eldest Daughter of Samuel Hawker, of Wallbridge, Gloucestershire, Esq; DEAD, William Chambers, Esq; Rear Admiral of the Red.

Mrs. Mary Jenkins, of Temple- street, White- Friars, aged 110, yet she could read any small Print without the Help of Spectacles. Of We hear from Oxford, that the following remark- able Circumstances attended the Death of the good Bishop Berkeley, mentioned in our last Journal. His Lady was reading a Sermon to him, and, before it was finished, she looked up and saw him dead in the Chair. He was per- fectly well when the Sermon was begun, and made many Observations upon it in the Course of the Reading. Committed to Gaol, At Salisbury, Jane Taylor, on Suspicion of murdering her Daughter in law ; And John Wallis, on Suspicion of setting fire to the Barn of James Smith, Farmer; at Ham. And, at Reading, Sarah Gre- gory, alias Combs, on Suspicion of murdering her Female Bastard- child. An ESSAY on the Advantages of GOOD- HUMOUR. AS Good- humour is the Source of all the Pleasures of Life, from which all our Joys arise, and from which proceeds all our Happiness ; so, without this invaluable Accomplishment, no Man can enjoy his Life with that Con- tent and Comfort, that Satisfaction and Tranquility, which sweetens our bitter Pills, those Cares and Calamities which the All wise Providence of Heaven is pleased to assign us. Pomp and Grandeur may gild the ungrateful Potion, and make it alluring to the Eye ; but it is Good- humour alone that abates the nauseous Qualities of those Things, and makes them abundantly more pleasant and palatable. Good- humour, mixed with Good sense, we take to be so valuable, that we think ourselves bound to become its Advocate, and recommend it to our Readers; for, as our Design in thefe our Performances was ever to promote Good humour, and excite Mirth, by all Manner of inno- cent Amusements, and other lawful Ways, imaginable, fo we think it a Right belonging to us, if not a Duty incum- bent on us. to persuade our Readers to receive so good a Guest as Good humour into their Company and their Families. The Cares of Life, in many Persons, choak all their Comforts; in others, whom the World smiles on, and every Thing succeeds t0 their Wishes, Greediness of Gain, Third of Riches, Ill nature, and such- like Things, devour all their Delights, and destroy even all their Desires. But, as Avarice, Ambition, and Ill- nature, are excessive Errors, we wish our Readers would reflect on their evil Tendency ; for they need no more than a simple Reflec- tion for their Refutation. The industrious Man, who has a generous Emulation to imitate and equalize worthy Endeavours, is to be com- mended ; and the thirsty Man, who would reserve against a rainy Day, merits Applause : But right Reason will teach them Moderation in their Desires, and bound them with Discretion ; for the aspiring Man should never be eager in his Expectations, tho' earnest in his Endeavours, lest his Crosses should be a greater Ccnfusion to him than his Losses do really deserve, the Wishes of most Men com- monly setting a greater Value upon Objects in View than they are truly intrinsically worth. The provident Man, when he is most seriously careful, ought to be most singularly chearful ; and, although he ought to be wise in his Forecast, yet he should not carry his Views too far, but be moderate in his Aim , that he may be more rich in his Enjoyment; for why should a Man perplex himself with the Event of precarious Hopes, and deprive himself, and all about him, of the Enjoyment of present Happiness ? Good- humour is a great Happiness in all Situations, and of excellent service in every Scene of Life. By this the poor Man enjoys a Sufficiency of wholsome Food with the same Content as if he had Plenty of the most delicious Dainties': Nay, even the Rich cannot relish their most re- fined Repasts, or find any Enjoyment in their most elegant Entertainment, without a Mixture of Mirth and Good- humour; for these are more preferable, with little, to every Man of Understandiug, than a great deal without them. Good- humour is fo wonderful in Operation, that an honest Plowman is as well satisfied with his Joan as a Covent Garden Beau with his Phillis: It supplies the De- fects of Nature; it even adds Charms to her most charm- ing Properties and shining Qualities; it makes Mankind sen- sible they have Senses, and without it they are not regular in Reason. Good- humour is one of the good Things that can subsist without, and needs not depend upon, Money ; the more uncorrupted it is, the more innocent we find it. None, but Knaves and Sycophants, put on Smiles for the Sake of filthy Lucre : None, that have an honest Aim, endeavour to please others with Good nature from a Prospect they have of making an Advantage of their Affability by sedu- cing or deluding their Good- sense. Let me, then, recommend Good- humour and Good- sense to all Persons in all Stations; but especially let it be an Houshold servant, and a Moderator of Matrimonial Matters: And, if my Advice is accepted, the Wife here- after will never scold, nor the Husband ever frown at her; the Children will be quiet in their Cradles, and the Ser- vants be easy in their Service ; none will complain of their Yokes, nor Husband nor Wife repent of their Bargain.

THE Phoenix, an English Man of War, who anchored a few Days ago in the Road of this Harbour, has set Sail for Leghorn, from whence she is to proceed to Naples, and de- liver 500,000 Piastres she has on board for the Account of his Catholic Majesty. BERLIN, Jan. 15. M. de la Touche, the French Mini- ster, frequently receives Couriers from his Court, and as often dispatches others thither : The Subject of their Dis- patches is a Mystery to the Public, as is also the real Ob- ject of the Conferences which that Minister has lately had with the King. London, January 27. 1. As there, are great Hopes our Councils will not be much taken up this Year with Foreign Affairs, we have all imaginable Reason to expect, that whatever is either amiss, or remiss, in our Domestic Policy, will be corrected or restored. When the Concerns of a Free Nation are in perfect good Order, and Justice, Oeconomy, and Public Spirit, flourish at Home, she has little to fear from Abroad. 2. We know what immense Advantages the Dutch derive to Themselves from their noble and extensive Colony at the Cape of Good Hope : We likewise know that our own Colony of Georgia is in the same Latitude North that the Cape is in South : And we may therefore flatter ourselves, that, if due Regard be had to it, we may, in Time, reap as great Beneftts from thence. 3. Tuesday last his Majesty gave a fine Library of Books and other valuable Curiosities to his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales and Prince Edward. 4. It is reported that a Memorial has been delivered from the Court of France on an extraordinary Occasion. 5. We hear that the Land forces for the Year 1753 will be between 18 and 19000. 6. We also hear that a Proclamation will soon be issued out for all Shipwrights, Artificers, & c. who have left the Kingdom since the Conclusion of the late War, to return their native Country, with a Pardon, and a proper BOUNty for the same, within six Months. Tis said that Application will be made to Parliament, to open the Port of London for the Recep- Irish Wooll and Yarn, 8. They write from Scotland, that the Trading People throughout that Kingdom have agreed, by a General Asso- ciation, not to give any Orders, for the future, to any Eng- lish Riders that may be hereafter sent among them by Eng~ lish Tradesmen.- This Resolution is owing to the unfair Behaviour of some of these Itinerants, whose constant Practice it is to undermine and undersell each other, with- out procuring any Benefit to the Trading Interest of the Nation in general by such Behaviour, which, on the con- trary, only tends to' unsettle the Course of Business, and destroy the Connexion and good Understanding between People, who had better not deal together at all than not do it with Spirit and mutual Confidence. It is said like- wise, that several Towns in England have already copied this Example, 9. —— Dashwood, Esq; is elected Member of Parlia- ment for Bishop's Castle, in Shropshire, in the room of the late Samuel Child, Esq; 1o. We hear that Sir Edward Hawke, Knight of the Bath, will have the Command of a considerable Squadron of Men of War. 11.

Arnold, of New- York, just as they anchored at Water Key, having 14 hands onboard, met with a warm Reception, being boarded by a large Craft mounting 12 Swivel- guns, a Launch, and a Pettiauger, in all 67 Men, whom they engaged three Glasses, when the latter, after the Loss of a great many Men, were obliged to sheer off. 13. They write from Paris, that the News of the Ad- vantages gained by the English in the East Indies had such an Influence over their public Funds, that, for some Days, they bore no Price. 14. By Letter's from Madrid we have Advice, that the Drought is fo great in Spain, that, for many Years past, they don't remember any Thing like it. In Estramadura they have been obliged to kill all the Lambs, in order to have Subsistence enough for the Sheep ; and, in Andalusia, Provender is so scarce, that they have been obliged to send most of their Horses into other Provinces. 15. We have Advice from Leutschau, in Upper Hun- gary, that, on the 15th of last Month, a Fire happened there, which burnt with so much Violence, by reason of a high Westerly Wind, that, in a few Hours, above Two Thirds of the City were reduced to Ashes, in which were comprehended the College of Jesuits, and the Community of young Noble- Women ; and that Ten Persons, who un- dertook to save their best Effects, perished in the Flames, and many others were considerably burnt. 16. They write from Kingston, in Jamaica, of the 14th of October, that, the Day before, one John Brown, who was an Attorney there, was executed for Forgery.

Mr. George Harris, Rector of Lanmadock, in Glamorganshire ; by whofe Death a considerable Fortune devolves to his Nephew, the Rev. Mr. William Harris, Prebendary of Landaff. We hear from Worcester that, on Tuesday last, the Co- roner's Jury finished their Enquiry in regard to the Murder of the Man in the late Fray there mentioned in our last Journal; when they brought in their Verdict, Wilful Mur- der, by Persons unknown.— The Wound was directly a- cross the Head, and so deep as to reach almost from Ear to Ear. On the 14th Instant was distributed, at Tolton, in Wor- cestershire, the Charity of Sir Henry Parker, Bart. viz. a- mongst 54 poor House- keepers, a fat Cow, with a Twelve- penny Loaf to each Person.

By the KING's Royal LETTERS PATENT, FRAUNCES's FEMALE STRENGTHENING ELIXIR, Which is a Chymical Preparation, extracted from the most powerful and efficacious Parts of the Materia Medica, and is perhaps, as great a Restorative and Strengthener as Medicine can produce'. THIS Elixir, from a long Series of Practice, has been found an excellent, and almost infallible, Remedy for the FLUOR ALBUS in Women, a Disorder TOO CAUTiously conceal'D, too much disregarded and neglected; whereby the robb'd of its nourishing, balsamic particles; the whole System is weakened and relaxed, Distempers are occasioned, and those at- tended with the most fatal Consequences. The Symptoms of this frequent and obstinate Illness are, a Pain and Weakness of the Small of the Back, a thick, turbid Urine appearing as if small Threads or Hairs were mixed therewith Weakness of the Stomaeh, Loathing of Food, Flatulencies, Indi- gestion, Hysterical Complaints,. Lownefs of Spirits, Wasting of the Flesh, Shortness of Breath, Palpitation of the Heart, Swelling of the Feet at Night, and often of the Face in the Morning a slow Fever, and, if the Distemper continues long, it occasions such an universal Relaxation and Weakness that Barrenness, Mis- carriages, Dropsies, and Consumptions, are its sad Effects. In the other Sex, in all Relaxations of the Seminal Vessels, and Weakness of the Genital Parts, from whatever Caufe arising, it will be found a most efficacious Restorative and Strengthener ' And also, in Constitutions worn down with long and tedious Illness, it will afford great Relief, by restoring the lost Spring of the Solids, and filling the Body with generous blood and Juices. Whence likewise it cannot fail of doing the greatest Seivice to People labouring under a Languor of Spirits and Hypocondria- cal Complaints. This Elixir is easy to be taken, agreeable to the Stomach, raises the Spirits, gives new Life to the whole Syetem, needs no Con- finement, and may be safely used by People of all Ages," The Bottles are seal'd, as in the Margin, with the PATENTEE'S Coat of Arms round which are these Word's, FEMALE STRENGTHENING ELIXIR ; and un- der the Arms, in a Scroll, BY THE KING'S PATENT.
