B R I T I S H Y * O R, New Univerfal LONDON WEEKLY JOURNALS A T U R D A Y , J A N U A R Y 3 1 , 1 7 $ 6. ' Continuation of the H I S T O R Y of ENGLAND, fcfjr. N the firft year of his reign, he feht amhaffadoTS to FranM, to demand of Charles VI. the reflitution of whatever had been tajcen from England, fince the treaty of Bretagny. This demand greatly alarmed Charles, or rather his miniflryi for he himfelf was feldom capable of guiding the helfn of government, having long been hfflifted with a diftemper which frequently deprived him of his reafon, yet allowing him fome lucid intervals. Henry knew very well that France would not comply, unlefs his demands were back'd by fome warlike preparations. But the French were far from thinking that the Englifh whom they had duped and infulted during the two laft reigns, would not venture to a f t on the offenfive, and therefore they only fought to amufe Henry by artful negotiations; but he returned their own arts againll themfelves, and fairly beat -.. them in their own cabinet, as he afterwards did in the field. France was at this time divided againll itfelf, and the great and powerful duke of Burgundy, the head of a very considerable party, enter'd into an alliance with Henry, which proved of vaft advantage to the Englifh. At length in the third year of his reign, the negotiations broke up, and Henry embarked Jiis troop? at Southampton. Jul! before his departure, he had notice of a plot, for placing the earl of March cm the throne during his abfenct. Henry immediately order'd the chiefs of the of the traitors who were the earl of Cambridge, the lord treafurer Scrope, and Sir Thomas Grey, to be apprehended, convifled, and put to cieath. This may be confider'd as the firft fpark of that flame which confumed in proceis of time the two houfei of York and Lancalter. The earl ejf Cambridge brother ro the duke pf York, had married a filter of the earl of March, and prebably engaged in the confpiracy, with a view of procuring the crown for his fon Richard, prefumptive heir to t j j e j a r l of March, who had no children. ^ TSraf& ir over, Henry Cet tail wtth an army of 50000 men, and landing at Havre de Grace, marched direftlv to Harfteur, a ftrong place and well provided. The garrifon made a vigorous though, not very long defence j no Ipeedy relief appearing, the town furrender'd by capitulation, and the inhabitants being turn' 4 out, their places were ( applied fey the Englifh, as in Edward I l l ' s time had been the fate vf Calais. After the taking of this place, Henry fent a challenge to the Dauphin, offering to decide the quarrel by a fmgie combat; but this the latter very juflly refuted, as Henry would only flake meer pretenfions to the French crown, againft the Dauphin's aflual pofTeffion ot it. The conqueft of Hirfleur might hare fatisfied Henry for the firil campaign, had not the ill ftate of his army given him great concern. The flax had made fuch havock among his troops, that he had not now above 15000 men able to bear arms. At the fame time he learned from all pacts that the French were aftembling the whole force of the kingdom to give him battle. In this forlorn fitu. ition he refolved to retire - to Calais. The fatigues of this march Were cxceflive. The winter approached, the raips had fpoiled the roads, which were rendered more impaffiible by the enemy who deftroyed all the bridges and caufeways in his root; neither was there any provifioni or forage ieft in the country. • Albret the conftable of France alfo, with fc detachment from the grand army which himfelf commanded, continually harrafs'd the Englifh, and greatly incommoded their march. When they came to pafs the Somme, it was found imprafticabie, the French having fixed vaft numbers of pointed ( lakes in that river and a ftrong body of troops were polled to defend the oppofite banks. As in fo ill a fituation there was no other remedy but patience, Henry took all poffible c3re to inftill it into his men, by ( haring with them in all their hardfhips. Their diftemper alfo encreafed with their wants, and great numbers fell fick in every day's march. At lad, to make their condition > » s defperate as poffible, the whole French army, amounting to 150000 men approached. On the zzd ot Odlober, the French generals f< wt flenry word, that on the 25th, they would give him battle, The king chearfully accepted the challenge, and gave the herald a magnificent gratuity. Durihg the three days before the aftiort, Henry never cesfed to infpire his troops with courage, though the enemy were ten times their number.. His exhortations had the defired effect, and both officers and men wete extreamly eager to engage, David Gam, a Welch captain, being fent to take a view of French, gallantly made his report in thefe words. " There are enough to be killed, enough to be made prjfoners, and enough to run away." The confidence of this b r a * officer pleafed the king, who took it for a fpecimen of the refolation of his troops. Whatever difproportion there was betwixt the number of men in the contending Ijrmies, there were ittll a greater difference in their condition. The Englifh were mpft of them affli£ led with the flux, and had alfo been harrafs'd by a terrible march of a month, in very bad weather, and an enemy's country. The Ffench on the contrary, were frefn and healthy, abounding with provifions, and under 110 inconveniency. It is faid, that the French leaders were fo confident of fiiccefs, as to fend to Henry to know what he would give for his ranfom. The king defpiflng this bravado, replied, that a few hours would ( hew whofe care it would be to provide a ranfom. [ To be continued.'] Since our laft; arrived the M A I L S due from F R A N C E .

Verfailles, ( a City in France) Jan*. 22. On the 21ft part M. Rouillt, Minifter and Secretary of State for Foreign Affair*, wrote the following Letter to Mr. Fox, Secretary of State to the King of England, Sir, By Command of the King my Mafler I have the Honour tofindyour Excellency ihefollowing Memorial, life. ' T H E King able to demonftrate to the whole Univerfe by authentic Proofs, that it is not owing to his Majefty that the Differences relating to America have not been amicably accommodated. * The King, being moft fincerely defirous to maintain 0ie Public Peace and a good Underftanding with his Britannic Majefty, carried on the Negotiation relating to that Subject with the moft umeferved Confidence arid good Faith. . The Aflurances of the King of Great Britain's Difpofttion to Peace, which his Britannic Majefty and his Minifters were conftantly repeating both by Word of • Mouth and in Writing, were fo formal and preeife, that the King could not, without reproaching himfelf, entertain the leaft Sufpicion of the Sincerity of the Court of London's Intentions. ' It is fcarce poffible to conceive how thefe Affurances can be reconciled with the Orders of Hoftilities given in November 1754 to General Braddock, and in April 1755 t o Admiral Bofcawen. ' The Attack and Capture, in July laft, of two of the King's Ships in the open Sea, and without a Declaration of War, was a public Infult to his Majefty's Flag; and his Majefty Would have immediately manifefted his Juft Refentment of fuch an irregular and violent Proceeding, if he could have imagined that Admiral Bofcawen. afted by Order of his Court. 4 For the the fame Reafon the King fufpended at firft his Judgment of the Piracies ( Pirateriss) that have been committed for feveral Months, by the Engliih Men of War, on the Navigation and Commerce of his Majefty's Subject?, in Contempt of the Law of Nations, the Faith of Treaties, the Ufage eftablifhed among civilized Nations, and the Regard they reciprocally owe to one another. ' The Sentiments of his Britannic Majefty gave the' King room to e* pe£ t that at his Return to London he would difavow the Conduct of his Admiralty and Naval Officers, and give his Majefty a Satisfaction proportioned to the Injury and the Damage. ' But feeing that the King of England, inftead of puniihing the Robberies ( brigandage) committed by the Englifh Navy, on the contrary encourage? them, by demanding from his Subjects frefh Supplies againft France, his Majefty would fall fhort in what he owes, to his own Glory, the Dignity of his Crown, and the Defence of his People* if he deferred any longer the Demanding of a iignal Reparation/ or the Outrage done to the French Flag, and the Damage done to the King's Subjects. ' His Majefty, therefore, thinks proper to app'y diredly to his Britannic Majefty, and demand from him immediate and full Reftitution of all the French Ships, as well Men of War, as Merchantmen, which, contrary to all Law and all Decorum, have been taken by the Englifh Navy^ and of all the 6fficers, Soldiers, Mariners, Guns* Stores, Merchandises, and in general of every thing belongihg to thofe Veflels,' ' The King will always chafe to Owe to the King of " England's Equity, rather than to any thing elfe^ that Satisfa& ion which he hath a Right to demand : And all the Powers imEurope will undoubtedly fee in this Step which he hath determined to take a new and ftriking Proof of that invariable Love of Peace which diretils all his Counfels and Refolutions.' ' If his Britannic Majefty order Reftitution of the Veffels in Qyeftion, the King will be difpoled to enter into a Negotiation for that farther Satisfaction which is legally due to hini, and will continue defirous, as he hath always been, to have the Difcuffions relating to America determined by art equitable and folid Accommodation. ' But if, contrary to all Hopes, the King of Englandrefiife what the King demands, his Majefty will regard this Denial of Juftice as the moft authentic Declaration of War, and as a formed Defign in the Court of London to difturb the Peace of Europe.' Mr. FoJc fent to Mr. kouille the following Anfwer dated at Whitehall, Jan. 13, 1756. Sir4 I received 011 the 3d inft. the Letter dated the 2 i f t paft with which your Excellency honoured me, together with the Memorial fubioined fo it. I immediately laid them before the King my Mafter ; and by his Command I have the Honour to inform your Excellency, that his Majefty continues deiirous of preferving the public Tranquility: But tbo' the King will readily confeht to an equitable and foltd Accommodation, his Majefty Cannot grant the Demand that is rtisde of immediate and full Reftitution of all the French Veflels, and whatever belongs to them as ths preliminary Condition of any Negociation j bis Majefty having taken * no Step but what the Hoftilities begun by Fraiice ih a Time of profound Pcacc ( of whifcli he hath the moft authentic Proofs) and what his Majefty owes to his own Honour, to the Defence of thq Rights and Pofi'effions of his Crown, and the SecUrttyi 0 f his Kingdoms, rendered juft and indifpenrablei 4 have the Hojiour to be, S* e," L I l Coblen.' z « ( a u'ty b-^ Wmany) j an. 7.

The Deputies of the Admiialties have refolved, it is faid, to fit out Forty Ships of War againft the Spring, befides the Eleven that are now at Sea, in order to protect not only our Mediterranean Trade againft the Algerine Corfairs, but alto that of the Ocean, in cafe there filould be Occafion. Hague, Jan. II. The Roman Catholicks of the Provinces, and part'cularly thofe of Brabant, having made Complaints to their High Mightineffes, that their religious Liberties have been in many Places infring'd, by the Fees exa£ ted from them by the Officers of the States ; a frefh Edict has been publifh'd in their Favour, forbidding any fuch Exactions or Prohibitions, adjudg. ing it criminal for any Officer, Bailiff, or Subftitute, even to afk fuch ufual Fees as have been given upfln licens'd- Places, of Worfhip and forbiding, the Pradtice of any oppreilive Meafures, on Pain of Death or Banifhment. Paris A la- main, Jan. 12. At the fame Time that we received Advice of the Earthquake which happened at Lifbon in the Night of the 21ft of laft Month, and which completed the Deftru& ion of that Citv, we learnt Likewife that the Ruins iiave been fince enrireh overflowed by the Breaking- in of the Sea : Before this laft Cataftrophe, thofe who had faved their Lives hid ftili fome Hopes of finding, at leaft P? rt of their Effedb among the Ruins, but now they are deprived even of that Refource, the Sea covering the whole Place. We learn from Tours, that the River Loire has overflowed that City, and the Country roundabout it. It's faid, that the King has fent a Perfon of DiP tiniStion to London, to demand the Reftitution of all the Ships that have been taken, or an Equivalent f or them, and that in cafe both fhould be refufed, he is to declare that his Majefty will treat the Englifh as Py rates. Paris A- la main, Jan. 16. Laft Tuefday it blew fo violent aStorin all tne Morning, that we were apprehenfive of ftich another fatal CataftJophe as lately happened at Lifbon : Several Chimnies were thrown down, and Houfes unroofed, but happily no Body was'hurt. At the fame Time the Seine was fo much agitated, that ' twas expected it would have overflow'd the City ; and feveral Boats breaking their Cables weredafh'd to Pieces againft the Bridges. Towards Evening the Wind abated, and the Seine immediately fubfided. The Domeflick who murder'd the Prior and his Mother and buried them in the Garden of the Priory, as mentioned fome Time fince, was iaft Wednefday carried to the Place whete he committed the F a d , and there broke upon the Wheel, then burnt, and his Afhes thrown in the Air, purfuant to the Sentance pafs'd upon him by the Patliament. The King has declared his Intention to fupprefs forty Counfellors of the Parliament as foon as. ibmany of them either die or retiie. Thefe Places being always purchafed, his Majefty propofes, that thofe who fhal! hereafter fucceed to them, fhall pay 200 © 0 Livres more that the Government may not Lfe by the Number being lefleh'd, and in Confideration of this Advance, fome additional Pierogatives will be affigned to the new Purchafers. Paris A- la- main Jan. 19. All the Officers have receiv'd Orders to repair to their Regiments, and are fetting out accordingly. - Lord Bulkey, Lieutenant- General- of the King's Foicrs, died a few Days ago in an advane'd Age. It's faid that his Majefty has declared himfelf in relation to the Affair of the Great Council, and has decided, that that Court only ( hall, for the future, have a Right to take Cognizance of Ecclefiaftical Affairs. The bad Weather continuing, the Seine which had fallen to its ufual Heigh th rofe again, the Night before laft 18 Inches, and laft Night eight Inches ; fo that the Water is higher now than it has been this Winter. This Overflowing of the Seine not only greatly obftrufts the Navigation, but even the travelling by Land, the Roads about Paris being all under Water ; fo that the bringing Provifions from the Country is attended with great Difficulties. It's reported that the Englifh have taken eight Ships out of nine that were coming home together, belonging to the India Company, and that the 9th having efcaped is ai rived at Marfeillcs, but this merits Confirmation. ' Paris A- la main, Jan. 23. The King of England's Anfvver being come over to the Demand, which was fer. t to Mr. Fox by M. Rouille, Secretary of State, there feems to be no Poffibility of avoiding a War. hear, that the Brifcifli Troops were then encamped in the Mrdft cf Froft and Snow, as the Towns will not quarter them, in which Situation they muft remain till the Wooden Barracks is finiflied for their Reception ; but as they Were foon to be ready for that Pur-, pofe, it' is hoped they are by this Time marched into them.

Keels were drove on Shore, having had fome of tieir Man blown over- board and perifhed ; but, as it was at Weft, we hope none o. f the Veffcls on this Coaft have fuffered. On Sunday Night was found in Durham River, between New and Elvet Bridges, a hay Mare with a fwifh Tail faddled and bridled almoft drowned, belonging to a Gentleman from York, who f: t out from Mr. Blenkinfop's that Evening in Liquor, and is fuppofed to he drowned, as a Hat'and Wig were found near the Place where the Mare was taken out. On Monday Night and Tuefday the Wind was remarkably ftrong here, by which fome Chimneys were thrown dowr, and Koufes unroofed ; but as it came from the Weft and South- Weft, we hear of no Harm done to the Shipping.

Letters from Paris, by Monday's French Mail, bring Advice, of a dreadful Shock of an Earthquake at Lifbon on the 5 th Inftant, which was attended with ftfery Eruptions from the Bowels of the Earth. The fame Letters make mention of an Earthquake near Bayonne, where a whole Village has been fwallowed up. They likewife tel! us, that Madame de Pompadour and Monfieur Puyzieulx are againft a War, but whether they will have Influence enough to prevent a Rupture, a very little Time will probably Difcover.
