B E R R O W's Worcester JOURNAL. [ Printed at his OFFICE in Goose- Lane, near the Cross.~ j Price Two- Pence. THURSDAY, January 22, 1756. N° 2425 FRIDAY'S and SATURDAY'S POSTS. Arriv'd a MAIL from HOLLAND, PETBRSBOuRg, December 16. LAST Friday Morning, about Seven o'Clock, a Fire broke oat in the Admi- ralty's Magazine of Pitch and Tar, which, in a very short Time, entirely consumed that Building with every thing in it. Madrid, Dec 16 The King, not- withstanding the good Understanding he maintains with the British Nation, being determined to assert his Rights to Commerce and Navigation in the Gulph of Cam- peachy and the Bay of Honduras, they talk at Court of transporting thither a few more Troops, to relieve or rein force those already there— That is to say, the Court of Madrid will now do as they lslt, because they think we must wink at it. Rome, Dec. 20 Monday died, aged Seventy- eight, Car- dinal Caraffa, Dean of the Sacred College. There are now eleven vacant Hats. Milan t Dec 23. A few Nights ago the Sentinels on the Ramparts of Como obaerved in the Air a very bright Globe of Fire, from which issued a Multitude of Sparks, which dispersed themselves in the Atmosphere. It did not appear above a Minute, and seemed to fall on the City. The poor Fellows were so much frightened that they fainted away. Francfort, Jan. 4. The French are raising Men in Alsace with so much Diligence, that they regard neither Age nor the Height of the Recruits. The Magazines are also filling as fast as possible. Brussels, Jan. 2. According to our Advices from Lor- rain, Orders have been given for preparing Stables in all the Villages about Metz and Thionville, for a Number of Horses that are expected there for the Use of the Artil- lery, and for remounting the Cavalry. The same Ad- Vices add, that there were at Metz fifteen Pontoons, and ii many sharp pointed Boats, with their Tackling, already loaded upon Carriages; that a considerable Number of Hands were employed in preparing Caissons, Waggons, & c. for the Artillery ; that two hundred Woolpacks were lately arrived at Rodemacher to make Mattrasses ( as was given out) for the Use of the Troops ; that the two Fur naces at Hayange were constantly employ'd in casting Bomb- Shells; and that there were Commissaries at that Place to receive and dispatch a great Number of Wag- gons which were expected there, in order to transport Cannon Bullets, and Shells, eight thousand of which were to be removed by the first Convoy to Codemacher and SIRK. Brussels, Jan. 5. Though some late Advices from London say, that a Body ot English Troops are to cross the Sea, in order to garrison Ostend and Newport, we don't yet make any Dispositions for their Reception: And moreover, we are still in Doubt whether there will be any Occasion for such Troops to come over to our Assistance. Paris, Dec. 29. A Courier is arrived here from M de Vergennes, our Ambassador at Constantinople, who re- ports, that all the long Way he travelled he heard of no thing but Earthquakes. It is reported that one of the Shocks hath dried up the Lake of Neuschatel. We have Letters from Portugal which represent the King exercising his Authority as a steady Monarch, and the Ministry are as successfully employ'd in bringing Or- der out of Confusion. The Custom- House Board hath, in particular, given a very signal Proof of their Firmness A Foreign Ship having attempted to steal down the River, and get to Sea without the necessary Passports, was stopt, and immediately searched. She was found to be laden with Plate and Ingots of Gold and Silver that had been stolen during the Disaster. The Crime being manifest, the Captain and all his Crew were hanged up without any Form of Process. Paris, Jan 3. An Arret of the King's Council of State is published, for levying again the Duties laid in 1743, and taken off in 1751, on Poultry, Game, Sea , Fish dried and falted, Calves, Lambs, Kids, Hogs, Pigs, Eggs, Butter, Cheek, and Wood for Fewel. This Arret is dated the 20th of December. As the King seeks only to ease his People, he must needs have offered Violence to his natural Temper in signing it: But, as his Majesty says in the Preamble to the Arret, he finds himself obliged to levy these Duties again, on Account of the Necessity of augmenting his Sea and Land Forces; the Conduct of his Enemies having wearied out his Moderation and Patience. — [ Just so it has been in all Ages with most Courts: When they launch out into a War, their Conduct is just, their Views laudaule, their Pretensions right in their own Eyes; but, when, tired of fighting to little or no Pur- pose, they come to make Peace, they do as good as con- fess, in their Treaties, that they went to Loggerheads only for Want of Honesty, or Sense enough to understand one another. IRELAND. Dublin, Jan 3, We hear that a Bill will be brought into the Right Honourable the House of Lords, for limit- ing and registering the Number of Popish Secular Priests in this Kingdom, with an Exclusion to all others, but particularly Regulars; and, it is said, it will be recom- mended to the Judges to bring in the same. An Account of Flour, Wheat, and Malt, imported into Dublin, from the 1st of January to the 25th of Decem- ber, 1755. 46,970 Hundred of Flour, at 10s. 23.485 0 0 47,037 Barrels of Wheat, at l6s. 37.629 12 o 162,103 Barrels of Malt, at 8 s. 6 d. 68,893 15 6 130,008 7 6 This incredible Sum sufficiently points out the Neces- sity of an Inland Navigation, which would be the most effectual Means of increasing the Tillage of Ireland. SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, Jan. 8 They write from Aberdeen, that on Sunday Evening last a Fire broke out at the Back of the Tolbooth, by which six or seven Families were burnt out before it was extinguished. COUNTRY NEWS. Bristol, Jan. 10. At the Petty Sessions held at Can- nard's Grave, by two Justices of Somersetshire, John Joslet was committed to Shepton- Mallet Gaol, on Suspi- cion of being concerned with Fanny, the Wife of John Scaley, and others, in robbing her aforesaid Husband of the Sum of two hundred Pounds and upwards. Salisbury, Jan. 10. On Monday last seven French Of- ficers, taken by Admiral Boscawen on board the Alcide, arrived here from Portlmouth on their Patrole of Honour, and are to continue during the Government's Pleasure. LONDON, Thursday, JANUARY 15. From the Amsterdam Gazette. London, Jan 2. - An Express is just set out for Vienna with Despatches relating the Measures concerted be- tween the two Imperial Courts and ours, for preserving the Traquility of the Empire in general, and for the Se- curity of Hanover in particular. Two Powers have al- ready declared ( under the Pretence of preventing every Thing that may disturb the Peace of the Germanick Body) that they cannot grant a Passage through their Terri- tories to the Russian Troops taken into the Pay of Great Britain. To obviate the Inconveniencies which might re- sult from this Refusal, the Miniltry are entering upon a new Negotiation with a certain Court. But some are of Opinion, that, if the Russian Troops are employed, they must be transported by Sea to the Place of Action. As the Paris A la main is under the Inspection of the Lieutenant General ot the Police, the Publick are divided in their Opinions concerning the Account given therein or Prince Edward Some- People think, that if he was actually in Paris, and if the French Court intended to make any important Use of him against Britain, the Go- vernment would take care to keep the Matter secret: Some imagine that there is no Occasion for Secrecy, nor any more Measures to keep with the British Court; and, consequently, that the Mask is pull'd off: And some, who do not care to be positive in such slippery Science as Po liticks, content themselves with saying, that the World will soon be entertain'd with a Tragedy or a Farce. Extract of a Letter from Paris, Jan. 3. " All the Reports in foreign Parts of new Propositions for an Accommodation between this Court and that of Great Britain, are by sensible Perfons look'd upon as Sup- positions that have no solid Foundation. Our Court is now Intent upon nothing but putting the Nation in a Con dition to take Vengeance, by all possible Means, for the Hostilities committed by the English 0n the French Trade and Navigation without any previous Declaration. " The Circumstances that obliged Prince Edward Stuart to withdraw from this Kingdom, no longer subsisting, he return'd to this Metropolis a few Days ago. Many Scotch and irish, attached to his Fortune, are likewise here, and appear resolvcd to run all Hazards with him,' Utrecht Gazette It is said in private Letters from Holland by the last Mail, that the Marquis de Bonnac and the Count d'Affry, among other Points of their Negotiation with the States General, insist that the Republick shall put into the Hands of the King their Master, Nimeguen, Maestricht, Breda, and two other Places, as Hostages or Security for the Good Behaviuur ot their High Mightinesses in case of a War between Britain and France. the French Ministry being apprehensive, that however the Dutch may be in- clined to Peace at present, they might hereafter, in the Course of such War, be prevailed upon to Chime in with the Measures of the English, as was the Case in the last War, when the Party of the Stadtholder got the upper- hand in the Republick. We hear that an Express, by Way of Memorial, has been lately received from France, the Contents of which were so arrogant, abusive, and insulting, that it was im- mediately returned without any Consideration thereon,' and with this Answer only, " that its Contents were such as merited not the Notice of the British Nation " A Scheme is talked of for raising the Ten new Regi- ments, and the Marines, by two Men out of each Parish in England. We hear that the Recruiting Parties belonging to that Ten New Regiments meet with such Success, that it is thought they will be able to complete those Regiments shortly with Volunteers. A Command of Matrosses, & c. have received Orders to hold themselves in Readiness to march or embark on the shortest Notice. Letters received Yesterday from Leghorn mention the Arrival there of several British Men of War, in order to intercept the French Merchant Ships from the Levant. This Morning a large Quantity of Cannon Balls was shipped for the West Indies. We hear that the Patents are preparing for creating the Lord Chief Justice Ryder, and the Hon. Horatio Wal- pole, Peers of England. Yesterday a Dispensation parted the Seals, to enable the Rev. Robert Eden, D. D. late a Prebend of Worcester, to hold the Rectory of Hedbourne, otherwise Hedbourne Worthy, in the County of Southampton and Diocese of Winchester, together with the Rectory ot Michel Marsh, in the same County and Diocese, worth upwards of 420 1. per Annum. We hear that Dr. Terrick is appointed to preach on the 30th Instant before the Hon House of Commons : And Dr. Young on the sixth of February, being the Day ap- pointed to be observed for a General Fast. His Royal Highness the Duke is indisposed, occasioned by the bursting of a Vein in the Wound he received in his Leg at the Battle of Dettingen, at the last New Mar- ket Meeting. Tuesday Ive Whitebread, Esq, one of the Sheriffs of London, attended the House of Commons with the City's Petition for a new Bridge. Lalt Night at the Meeting of the Society for the En- couragement of Arts, Manufactures, and Commerce, the Premium of Ten Pounds for the bed five Hides dress'd in Oil, commonly called Losh, or Buff Leather, was ad- judged to Mr. Henry Bullock ; and the like Premium for tinning Copper Vessels in the best Manner with pure com- mon Tin, was adjudged to Mr. John Bootie. By Accounts from Madrid of the 29th pad, they had a more violent Earthquake there than any before, which had also made horrid Devastation at Lisbon and kill'd a great Number of People. The Earthquakes of the 18th and 19th of November, were severely felt at Fez, where more than 3000 Persons were destroyed. Not one House is left standing at Me- i quinez. It is reckoned that 4000 Moors, and 8000 Jews, who lived in a feparate Quarter are buried there. Frequent Shocks continue, and astonishing Noises are daily heard in all that Part of Africa. By the Accounts hitherto received it appears, that the Earthquakes have continued for the Space of Sixty- one Days, that is, from the first of Nov. to the 31st of last Month inclufive; in which Space of Time they have been felt with more or less Violence, from the Eastern Shores of America to the Heart of Germany, and from the fro- zen Clime of Iceland almost to the Topick of Cancer j taking a Range of about 4000 Miles from West to East, and above 2000 from South to North. yet we have Abundance of Wise- acres who are still unmoved by these tremendous Concussions in the terraqueous- Globe, f from a fond Conceit that they are nothing but the Effects of natural Causes, though the most sagacious of them all could not foresee when they would begin, nor dare they now venture to predict when or where they will end. The Master Shoemakers, in St. Martin's le Grand, Bow- Church Yard, Cheaptide, and every Part of the City, make great Complaints of the Idleness of the Journeymen, who, a soon as they earn a Shilling or two, spend it in Drunken- ness and Gaming, to the Ruin of their poor Wives and families, and great Detriment 0f the Master Shoemakers, more than one having assured me, that the Sale of many Thousand Pair of Shoes has been lost, even to Ready MOney customers, on this Account; and so very great is the Insolence of these inferior Crispins, that St. Hugh's Bones lie quiet for Days together, till the Master is neces- sitated to advance them some Money before- hand. Thursday died, aged 67, at Whitton, in Middlesex, the Hon. Mrs. Elizabeth Verney, Daughter of the Right Hon. Thomas Leigh, Baron Leigh, of Stonely, in War wickshire, by a Daughter of the Rockingham Family : She married Thomas, eldest Son of the Right Hon. Dr. George Verney, Baron Willoughby of Brook, Dean of Windsor, and Register of the Order of the Garter, by whom she had one Daughter, married to George Bowes, Esq, of Durham. Last Friday Night Mary Binstead was sent to the Poul- try Compter, as a Street Walking; and 0n Saturday Morning Mr. Alderman Cokayne signed her Commit- ment to the London Workhouse ; but before the Constable took her from the Mansion HOuse, a Washerwoman from the Compter came and charged herewith stealing some Linnen in the Gaol, which being found upon her, she was carried before the Alderman again Ac- count; committed her to Newgate SUNDAY'* and MONDAY's POSTS. WARSAW, December 30. . NOtwithstanding the Measures taken in the 391 Ukrain and Volhina to prevent the frequent Incursions of the Haydamacks, we hear from Zitomierz, that those Robbers, to the Num- ber of Nine Hundred, entered one of the newly secured Towns on the Frontiers, burn- ing all the Houses, and destroying all the new Outworks raised for their Defence, and carrying near One Hundred of the miserable Inhabitants off with them. Prague, Dec. 30. From Olmutz in Moravia we have most lamentable and incredible Stories relating to the Ef fects of the late Earthquakes in that Province: Among the rest, a strange Account of the bursting of one of the Mountains there, and of the Emission of liquid Fire ; but as these Accounts are attended with a Number of fabulous Circumstances, peculiar to the credulous inhabitants of that Kingdom, we are as yet dubious of the Credit due to those Relations. Berlin, Jan 5. We have Accounts from Poland, that, in the Beginning of last Month, such Storms of Wind have arisen in the Salt Pits in several Parts of that King- dom, that some Hundreds of the Labourers, and great Part of the subterraneous Works, are destroy'd, by which the Salt, to a very considerable Value, has been dispersed and spoiled. From other Parts of that Kingdom, also, we have Accounts of Springs and Fires which have broke lose in those subterraneous Caverns, whereby some Pits are entirely destroy'd, and others remain still burning. From those Parts, however, we hear of little Damage that has been done by the late Earthquakes. Amsterdam, Jan. 6. Advice is received from St. Eusta- tia, that the general Earthquake, on the 1st of November last, has occasioned very considerable Damages in the Leeward Islands, which were surprized with the sudden Shock and Inundation of the Water, by which several Vessels were lost, Plantations destroy'd, and Numbers of the Inhabitants drowned. We are hereby become impa- tient for further Advices, on Account of our Settlements at Carasao and Surinam. Letter from Stade, Dec. 18. " Recruits are raising here, as well as in all the Cities throughout his ( Britanick) Majesty's German Dominions, with great Vigour and Success. The Officers also of all the Regiments on the Hanoverian Establishment have re ceived positive Orders to hold their Troops in immediate Readiness to march. Yesterday our Governor exercised the Trains of Artillery, by firing the heavy Cannon on the Rampart's. The Improvements that have been some Time since making in our Fortifications are compleat, and this City on all Sides in a perfect Posture of Defence." COUNTRY NEWS. Extract of a Letter from Taunton, in Somersetshire, dated January 12, 1756. '* One Day last Week were committed to separate Pri sons, in the County of Somerset, Mr. William Pester, and Nathaniel Withers, for being concern'd as Principals in the Forgery, for which one James Wallis was convic- ted at the- last Wells Assizes, and is since executed . This William Pester is the Person in whose Favour, about six Years since, at Taunton Assizes, a forg'd Deed, dated so far back as 1646, was set up and produced, in order to defeat a Mortgage, which James Chaffey Cowper, Esq; had upon the Lands then in Disputes and it being sup ported by false Evidence ( for Perjury is generally concomi- tant to Forgery) a Verdict was obtain'd against the Mort gagee, in Consequence of which Mr Cowper was for some Time defrauded of a very considerable Sum of Money. Two more Persons, against whom Warrants are granted, are absconded." ' . SHIP NEWS. - - • : Plymouth, Jan. 13.

This Week a Court Martial was held on the Master of the Ferret Sloop of War for bad Conduct'; he was sentenced six Months Imprisonment in the Marshalsea Prifon, and rendered incapable of serving in his Majesty's Navy any more. On Tuesday last the Captain's Clerk of the Barfleur was taken into Custody ; some say for Mal Practices relating to Tickets, others for holding secret Correspondence with our Enemies; but the real Matter does not as yet per- spire. LONDON, Saturday, JANUARy 17. St. James's, Jan. 18. This Day M. Michell, lately Secretary d'Ambassade, now charged with the Affairs of the King of Prussia, had his first private Audience of his Majesty i to Which he was introduced by the Right Hon. the Earl of Holderness, one of his Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, and Conducted by Sir Clement Cot- trell Dormer, Knt. Master of the Ceremonies. A Treaty of Alliance between England and Prussia was Concluded and sign'd last Night, wherein the latter engages to hinder any foreign Troops from entering into the Em- pire in an hostile Manner. We are told that an Express from the Empress of Rus- sia to his Prussian Majesty, had this just and proper Ex- prission : " I am determined, at all Events, to fulfil and " perform my Engagements to, and with, the most Faith " ful and Humane King of Great Britain." We hear that the Memorial, hinted at in the preceding Page, to have been received from France Was written by the French King himself, and directed For His Majesty singly ; the Contents of which loaded the British Nation ( not to say our most gratious Sovereign) with the greatest Calumnies, and which was return'd 1n a proper Manner, though with Decency. The French Nation, in some of their late Expresses, have threatened us With a Declaration of War, as on Monday next, unless such Satisfaction was made as should be adequate to a squeamish French Conscience; but most English Hearts are apt to think this proceeds more from Fear than true Courage. Thursday in the Afternoon a Report prevailed, that the Empress of Russia was either dead or dethroned ; but in the Evening it dwindled down into a Rumour, that there had been a Conspiracy, and that the Ringleaders of it had been apprehended, and some had undergone the Punishment of the Knout, and some been punish'd with Death This News is said to have come from Berlin, the last Post having brought no Letters from Petersburgh. The Heralds at Arms are in Waiting, and a private Account of Matters is daily expected from the other Side of the Water. We hear that Orders are given for all Sea Officers to repair on board, and that twenty Ships of the Line will sail directly to scour the Channel, and protect the home- ward bound Ships. All the Drummers and Fifers of Colonel Boscawen's Regiment are to be black Men. They write from Venice, that the late Lord Elcho is arriv'd there from Paris, in order to pass the Carnival ; and probably will take up his Residence in that Neigh- bourhood, until the Affairs between Great Britain and France are adjusted. Tuesday last a young Fellow was seized at his Lodgings at Portsmouth, with all his Books and Papers, and car- ried on board the St George at Spithead. From Halifax, in Nova Scotia, we are informed, that the Third of December last was obaerv'd there as a Day of Thanksgiving for the Signal Deliverances already vouch safed them from the Machinations of the French. The Assembly of North Carolina on the 15th of Oc- tober last passed an Act for granting a farther Aid of 10,0001. Proclamation Money, to be appropriated for raising three Companies of fifty Men each, to be sent to the Assistance of the Northern Colonies. Our Correpondent at Barbadoes acquaints us, that the Trial Sloop, Capt. John Falkingham, has been very suc- cessful in distressing the French Trade, and if the Prizes she has taken be condemned, it is thought his Share will amount to £ 500 1. and upwards. The Infante de Bourdeaux from Guardaloupe, Les Deux Petits from Martinico, L'Amiable from Melinsba, with 327 Slaves, and the Sauveur, with 177 Slaves, for Martinico, are taken by Commodore Frankland, and car- ried into Antigua. ...

Lord Sandys, as Warden and Chief Justice in Eyre of his Majesty's Forests, & c. on this Side- Trent. '" 1' ' . Charles Pinfold, Esq; Doctor of Civil Law, is ap pointed Governor of Barbados, in the room of Henry Grenville, Esq, Last Night died the Right Hon. the Lord Milsington, eldest Son of the Earl of Portmore. Yesterday a Life- Guard Man belonging to the First Troop, which lately received a Commission, shot himself at his Apartments in South Audley Street. His Royal Highness the Duke, who has been indis- posed for some Days, is much better. —; Chase, Esq, an eminent Portugal Merchant, who was taken out from under the Ruins at Lisbon, with his Arm broke, and his Shoulder dislocated, is gone to Bath for the Recovery of his Health, Yesterday 16,800 Oiinces of Silver Coin were shipped for Holland, and 2800 Quarters of Wheat for Portugal. According to private Letters from Denmark, the Season has prevented their having, as yet, any distinct or authen- tick Accounts from Greenland of ths Earthquake that happen'd there in the Beginning of November, for which however they are very impatient. The freshest Advices from Iceland represent Mount Hecla as very much dis- posed to make a Figure again amongst the burning Moun-. tains of Europe, at which the Inhabitants are the less dis- pleased, as their old Chronicles shew, that while it vomit- ed Flame and Fire their Island was beyond Comparison more fruitful, and the Climate milder than at present. Last Tuesday Jacob Ilive, formerly a Printer at London House, was taken into Custody by Mr. Carrington; one of his Majesty's Messengers, for being the Author, Prin- ter and Publisher of a most infamous and blasphemous pamphlet. *** We hear a New Edition of The COMPLETe LET- TER WRITEr ; or, New and Polite English Secretary, will certainly be published in a few Days: To which is pre- fixed, A plain and compendious Grammar of the English Language, and at the End.

King of Prussia has entered into with the King of Great Britain, he has undertaken to defend the Hano'ver Dominions against any Invasion. * - It is said that the new Regiments which are to be raised will be by obliging every Parish in the Kingdom to furnish Two Men, which the Parish is to pay, and that these Regiments are to be employ'd in guarding' the Coasts, and that the old Regiments are to go Abroad. ' Tis confidently said, that the Right Hon the Lord Berkeley, of Stratton, is to be appointed Treasurer of the Houshold to his Majesty, in the room of the Right Hon. the Earl of Fitzwalter, who is to have a Pension. ' Tis conjectured that Mr. Pitt is either to be restored to his PlaCe, or to have some other Appointment of Impor- tance. They write from Dublin,- that four Regiments will shortly be raised for the Irish Establishment,. one of Which is to consist of Highlanders. -. , . The Press for Seamen is very warm, and Warrants are expected to be back'd by the Lord Mayor, authorising them to press in the City: Notwithstanding this Press is so hot a Landman will not be received for the Sea. By Accounts from Barbadoes we learn, that there are a great many rich Guiney Ships, belonging to France, brought in there. We hear from Framlingham, in Suffolk, that a large Pond in that Town, in which an extraordinary Motion was observ'd on the 1st of November, was agitated again last Sunday in the same Manner, and in a Direction con- trary to the Wind, which at that Time was pretty strong : So that it is fear'd another dreadful Earthquake happan'd that Day in some distant Part of the World. It is reported ( but we hope without Foundation) that there are Letters in Town from Gibraltar giving an Ac- count of some Shocks of Earthquakes since the 1st of No- vember, which did considerable Damage. The Messenger who was sent with Letters of Condo- lence from this Court to that of Portugal is returned, and confirms that there was another Earthquake at Lisbon on the 21st of December, and that 300 People perish'd there- by.! The Shocks, it's said, were almost as violent as those on the 1st. of November. By the Mercury, Cowley, arrived at Dublin from Fyal, one of the Azores or Wettern Islands, we here the agree able News, that no Disafter had happened to those Islands during the Earthquakes that made such Devastations in . Portugal, Morocco, and other Parts. .. Last Thursday the Sessions began at the Old Bailey, when fourteen Prisoners were tried, twelve of whom were call for Transportation, and two acquitted. Wm. Thorn- ton, for the Murder of Thomas Gresham in Newgate, was found guilty of Manslaughter. Friday seventeen Prisoners were tried, one of whom was capitally convicted, viz. Andrew Brinkworth, for publishing a forged Promissory Note with Intent to de- fraud Henry Hawkins of 30I. Twelve were cast for Transportation, and three acquitted. The Trials of the Thieftakers for a Conspiracy, were put off till next Sessions. Saturday ten Prisoners were tried, two of whom were capitally convicted, viz. Alexander Thompson, for not surrendering himself according to proper Notice given, he being declared a Bankrupt; and John Boswell, a Butcher and Thieftaker, for' robbing Frederick Lenard, a Dutch- man. Boswell called three Women to prove that one of them picked the Prosecutor up in the Street, and Carried him to- her Lodging, where another of them robb'd him, a little before the Prisoner was taken, lying on him on the Ground, and cutting him with a Knife ; but they being separately examined, varied in their Evidence, and were for Perjury committed to Newgate. Five were cast for Transportation, and three acquitted; And Yestrday the Sessions ended : Three Prisoners were tried, and all cast for Transportation. The three Prisoners capitally convicted, as above, received Sentence of Death. On Sunday Morning when the Under- Turnkey of the New Gaol, in Southwark, went to unlock the Felons, five off the most desperate rushed out into the Fore- Yard of the Prison, and one of them, named Walter Dixon, com- mitted for Murder, seized Mr. Johnson, the Head Turn- key, as he was standing at the Lodge Door, and almost throttled him, threatning that if he spoke he would cut his Throat from Ear to Ear. During the Skirmish, five of the Felons got out of the Gaol Door, and ran in to the Borough; Mr. Jones the Keeper being' alarmed, im- mediately sent out several resolute Men, who, in less than an Hour retook them all. This Escape was concerted by John Tomkin and James Thompson, both Highwaymen, John Needham, committed for a Rape and Murder near Guildford, Walter Dixon, for killing a Man in Tooley- Street, and Francis Brown and William Smith, who the Night beforc had cut off their Irons with Spring Saws. From Antigua we are inform'd, that on board the Sau- veur. bound for Martinico, one of' the Ships lately taken by Commodore Frankland, was found a Letter of Marque to make Reprisals in America. Belfast, Jan. 2. By the Peggy, Capt. Jackson, who arrived here on Monday last from Barbadoes, we hare the following Adrices of the 12th of November last ; Com- modore Frankland and the Squadron there under his Com- mand, have taken four large Ships belonging to the French, off Martinico, and sent them down to Antigua. Two of them are Guiney Men, 848 Slaves on board ; one a Sugar- laden Ship, with 500 Hogsheads, bound to Marseillea; and the other from Bourdeaux, with dry Goods. This Account Captain Jackson had from Mr. Jocelyn, a Lieutenant of one of the Commodore's Ships, a Gentle- man known to many in Belfast, and may be depended on. Captain Jackson says also, that on the 1st of November, about Ten in the Morning the Sea at Barbadoes in two Mi nates rose five Feet, and in the same Space ebb'd to its former Height, and continued to do so for about seventy Times successively, which did some Damage to the Small Craft but they felt no Shock of an Earthquake. Extract of a Letter from Philadelphia, Nov. 28. For some Time past the Uneasiness of the Back- Sel- lers has been much increased by the Incursions of the In- dians ( some of them lately in our Interest) who have de- stroy'd many Families within about sixty Miles of our City. These Hostilities having been frequently repeated, occa- sioned a great Number of the Inhabitants of the Back Coun- tries to come to Town, to promote a Reconciliation be- tween the Governor and Assembly, which some think is in great Measure for since that Incident two Bills have been passed, one for regulating such as are willing . fight, and the other for raising 55,000 I. by a Tax upon, the Estates of the Inhabitants; the Proprietors only ex- cepted at this Time, in Consideration of a Gift of 5000l. now given as an Addition to the 55,0001. We expect some Affairs of Consequence may be transacted in Parlia- ment this Winter," which we are anxious to know the Event of. The several Governors on the Continent are to meet the 2d of next Month at New- York, to settle the Plan of Operations for next Spring." BANKRUPTS.

The GOVERNORS of our Infirmary return their Thanks for a Benefaction of TWO GUINEAS received from Mr. Jonathan Harris, of Stanford. ' :' Last Saturday, at Noon, Mr. Farr ( Father- in- Law to Mr. Hall, at the Dolphin, in Bromsgrove) dropp'd down in an Apoplectick Fit, and immediately expir'd. We hear from Shrewsbury, that the new Spire on St. Mary's Church, in that Town, receiv'd so much Da- mage on Monday last, by a high Wind; that it is daily expected to fall down. A few Days since Ten stout Watermen, of Bewdley, were enlisted together by a Serjeant recruiting in that Town ; and ' tis said they have a Promife to be Continu'd together always in the same Regiment and Company ; and that they will be distinguish'd by the Appellation of the Bewdley BRAVOES. We hear from Birmingham, that on Thursday last, and the Market Day before, the proper Officers there seized considerable Quantities Of Butter which wanted Weight, and gave it away to the Poor, and tried a great Number of Market Measures, amongst which many were deficient i the Owners of which are taken an Account of, in order for Prosecution. Inspectors are also employed to detect that illegal Practice of' Forestalling the Market. - On Monday se'nnight last- were apprehended and brought to Birmingham, on the Confession of one Mould, now in Stafford Gaol, Jonathan Clay and James Barrs, of King's Norton, for being concerned with the said Mould and two others, in robbing Mr. Smith of Bentley, near Wal- sall, last Month 2 for which they are committed to Staf ford Gaol. Some THOUGHTS on the late EARTHQUAKES AS the Subject of EARTHQUAKES [ since the late tre- mendous Catastrophe at Lisbon and Other Places] is become the general Topick of Conversation in most Com- panies, I have taken the Liberty to throw together a few Thoughts upon that awful Subject, which, if admitted, Will prove that we were more interested in that great Convulsion of Nature than is generally imagined It is well known that the Property of Liquids, not- withstanding their- Fluidity, is to remain in a State of Rest, except they are put in Motion by some Impression or external Cause. That surprizing Agitation of the Wa- ters, which was so remarkably conspicuous on the First of November, ( at the Time of the great Earthquakes at bon and other Places) not only upon the Sea- Coast, but. likewise in the Inland Parts of this Island, is, to me a convincing Proof that this whole Island, at the same Time, receiv'd a great Shock, or was actually remov'd out of its former Situation. Something parallel to this is to be shewn by an easy Experiment : If you place a large Bason of Water upon a Table, and, when the Wa- ter is at Rest, remove the Bason along the Table but a Quarter of an Inch, it will give the Water in the Inside an Agitation answerable to all the Phoenomena of our standing Pools at that Time ; which will be more, Or less in Proportion as the Motion is increas'd in Distance and Velocity. Again,- The extraordinary Appearance it had upon the Sea- Coasts naturally arises from the Motion of the Island ; for which Way soever the Direction was, it must naturally cause the Water to arise on that Side; and that, more, or less, as it was on an open Shore, or Con- fined in Bays, Havens, Creeks, or within the Banks of Rivers, and, on the contrary, to subside at the same Time on the opposite Shore of the Island, till, by its fre- quent Vibrations, it had recover'd its natutal State. This is so natural an Effect, arising from such a Cause, that it needs no Experiment to prove it. I will not take upon me to say, that the Motion of oar Island was the Occa- sion of the extraordinary Agitation of the Waters on the opposite Shore, particularly upon the Coast of Hollandt and other Places, where it was more or less Confined, by the frequent Vibrations which the sudden Motion of so large an Island must naturally produce, though, to me, it seems highly probable. If it should be ask'd, How this Island could receive so extraordinary a Shock, and the Inhabitants not be sensible of it? it may be answer'd( That, if the Direction of the Shock was parallel to the Horizon, ( which I suppose be) we could be no more effected by it than we are by the diurnal Rotation or the Motion of a Ship or Vessel ( / Which we sail. I cannot imagine it to be a Vibrating Mo- tion ; for, if so, we must certainly have been sensible of the Return of it. In order to arrive at any Degree of Certainty which Way the Motion was directd, I with that those who made the Observation at the Time would send an Account to wh t Point of the Compass the Waters were directed in their first Vibrations, which would, in all Probability, ascertain which Way the Island was remov'd. What grateful Return of Thanks do we owe to a kind and indulgent Providence, for our Preservation ! At the Time other Nations were groaning under the Wrecks of Nature, his gentle Hand mov'd us in such a Manner as not to be attended with any of those fatal Consequences which the Nations abroad labour under at this Day.
