BERROW's Worcester JOURNAL. I Printed at his OFFICE in Goofe- Lane, near the CrofJ Price Two- Pence. THURSDAY, April 32, 1756. No2438 FRIDAY'S and SATURDAY'S POSTS. Arriv'd a MAIL from France. PARIS, April 2. A Few Days ago, whilst the Commissioner of the Quarter was putting his Seal on the Effects of a Woman who died sud- denly in this City, several Letters were f brought by the Post- Man, directed to j^, the Deceased. The Commissioner open'd them, and finding they were written in English, Cent for a Roman Catholick Interpreter, who, after perusing them, told him that a pretended Foreign Lord, who called himself a Subject of Sweden, and who lodged in the best Apartment of the House, was a Spy who informed the British Ministry of all that passed at Paris. Notice of this Discovery was immediately sent to the Lieutenant General, who committed the Stranger to the Bastile. AMERICA. Extract of a Letter from Barbadoes, Feb 14 On Sunday the 8th Instant, between the H° urs of Seven and Eight in the Evening, a Fire broke out from a Store- House belonging to Joseph Blackman, Esq; near the Middle of Bridge- Town, wherein was a large Quantity of Cotton, landed by proper Orders from a French Ship, brought hither and put under that Gentleman's Care till further Orders shouId be had concerning the ship and Cargo, The Fire soon increased, burnt that Store- House, and next seized the Dwelling House of Mr. Samuel Nu- sam adjoining thereto; from thence the Flames spread to ihe opposite and adjacent Houses of Mess Haggat, Lampy, Walker, and Codrington Carrington. Esq- » and after wards took their Course Westward to James's Fort, which being consumed, the Fire still increasing, burnt all the Houses down in Crown Alley up to Cheapside : Its Pro gress was then Eastward, burning and raging in a most dreadful Manner on the South of Broad street toward the high House called the Coffee- House, which being seiz'd, ihe Flames communicated their destructive Influence to the House of Mr Blackman, and that of Richard Hus- bands, Esq; the Secretary, where the publick Recoids were kept; then the House and Stores of General Bar- Wick, Mess. Larry, Black, and some other adjoining Houses, which put the whole Town in Danger of being Consumed to Ashes However, by the Providence of God, a Stop was put to the Rapidity of the Fire, and it abated about Five o'Clock next Morning It is computed that about one hundred and sixty Houses have been burnt, and ' tis said it was the richest Part of the ToWn We have fince had frequent Alarms; and the People suspect that the Fire was kindled by the Contrivance of some of the French brought in there, as One of the French ships had same Time before been burnt in the Bay. it is, how- ever, a happy Circumstance that the publick Records were Carried away during this general Calamity ; and the Secre- tary says that there is no Loss or Embezzelment of any of them, as they can yet discover. The Loss occasioned by this dreadful Fire is very great, but of which no Compu- tation can yet be made." SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, April 8. We hear from Barra, that a large Ship from Philadelphia for Ireland, laden with Lintseed and Iron Bars, was lately cast away there : Eighteen Pas- sengers and Sailors, who took to the Long Boat, perished, but the Master and four Hands, who staid by the Ship, are saved. This is the third Wreck this Season of Ships from Philadelphia for Ireland amongst the Highland Isles. We hear from Aberdeen that a Number of Persons have perished on that Coast in the violent Storm of Wlnd on Thursday se'nnight; and likewise several up the Coun- try perished in the Snow. LONDON, Thursday, APRIL 15. 4 A Rumour prevail'd this Morning, that the French Court has offer'd such Terms of Accommodation as can- not Well be rejected by our Government If those Terms are reasonable and honourable, Peace we be prefer- able to War, but not otherwise. Letters by Yesterday's Mail from France take Notice, that four Soldiers, belonging to the Irish Brigades, got together drinking, and were heard to drink Success to his Majesty King George's Arms ; upon which Information was given, and they were all put under close Confine ment. It is reported that the Queen of Hungary has entered into an Alliance with France, who is to assist her in tak- ing Silesia. ' Tis reported the Dutch have entered into a Contract with the French to supply them with seventy Transport Ships. This Day the Bill for preventing the Exportation of Salt Petre was signed, which is a most refined Piece of Politicks; for upon some Advices received that the French were endevouring to buy up all that Commodity, Agents were appointed a short Time since by the Government, to purchase in Holland all that could be produced, which was accordingly done, when the French Agents repaired thither upon the same Business, but being disappointed, employ'd Dutch Agents to purchase all they could meet with from the English Merchants, which Scheme, by the passing of this Act, is render'd totally abortive. This Day the Plate Bill, Victuallers Licence Bill, Bill for laying a further Duty on Cards, and a Number of private Bills, were signed by Virtue of a Commission from his Majesty. Both Houses of Parliament this Day adjourned ' till after the Holidays. It is said his Majesty will remove from St. James's to Kensington, for the Summer Season, on Thursday the 22d Instant. This Morning 38000 Ounces of Silver Coin were ship- ped for Petersbourg. All the Artificers at Woolwich are obliged to work Sun- days and Week Days alike, with the greatest Expedition possible, in preparing Chain Shot and large Mortars, with many other warlike Stores. His Majesty's Wheelwrights have received Orders to buy up all the Farmer's Waggons they possibly can, there not being Time to make new ones, for some private Ex- pedition < A Draught was made this Day of twenty Men out of every Company in the Foot Guards. We hear that a Battalion of Foot will be posted at So- merset House. A Draught is order'd to- be made from the Train of Artillery, which is thought to be destin'd for Jersey and Guernsey. On the 11th Instant Lord John Murray's and Col. Ot- way's Regiments embarked at Plymouth for America. We hear from Coventry, that the loyal Corporation of that City, for the more speedy compleating Col. Lamb- ton's Regiment, do freely give two Guineas to every Freeman, and one Guinea to every Inhabitant of that City and County, who shall inlist in the said Regiment within one Month. Since the Prince of Soubize's Arrival at Dunkirk, all the English, and even out- lawed Smugglers, have been ordered to depart that Town ; but they have Leave to reside in other Places of the French Territory distant from it Hence it is to be presumed there is some important Business to be done at Dunkirk, which it behoves the French Court carefully to conceal Private Letters by Yesterday's French Mail say, that the Government has taken up 150 Tartans at Marseilles for the King's Service. We hear that four Ships of the Line are to be sent to destroy some Batteries which the French have erected at Cherburgh.-—[ Cherburgh is a Sea- Port Town in Nor- mandy, situated on a Bay of the English Channel, and opposite to Hampshire in England J It is said that the Harbour of Cherburgh is so close blocked up by four Men of War, that the Transports, & c. cannot possibly get out ; that Orders hive been dis- patch'd for Bombarding the Forts at the Mouth of that Harbour; and that a Fire- Ship will do some Part of the Execution there. From the 2d of October to the 12th of last Month, 20 French Vessels have been carried into Gibraltar by his Majesty's Ships of War: Their Tonnage amounts to 484;, Guns 162, and Men 56;. Letters received Yesterday from St. Christopher's men- tion, that the Men of War under the Command of Com- modore Frankland have sent in there two French Ships homeward bound from Martinico, laden with Sugar, Cof- fee and Cotton, two Sloops and two Schooners from Mar- tinico for Eustatia, and a Schooner with Provisions from Eustatia for Martinico. The Sieur Fernandez, Merchant at Bourdeaux, has found out a Secret to preserve Flesh Meats without Salt. This Discovery is of great Importance, especially to Na- vigators, as Salt Meats produce many Distempers among seafaring Men. The Count de St. Florentin, Minister and Secretary of State for the Department of Guyenne, has caused feveral Trials to be made of the Meats pre- pared by the Sieur Fernandez in Presence of some Mem- bers of the Academy of Sciences, and they all proved very sound and wholesome, though some of them had been kept five Months. Meats thus preserved will cost but little more than those cured with Salt. Tuesday his Royal Highness Prince Edward was con- firmed at the Chapel Royal, St. James's. This Day, at a Wardmote held at the School- House of St. Mary- Axe, Robert Kite, Esq; Citizen and Skinner, was, without Opposition, elected Alderman of Lime Street Ward, in the room of John Porter, Esq; deceased. Last Week the late Earl of Fitzwalter's House in Pall- Mall was sold by Auction for 6200 I. to Mr Phillips, an eminent Builder ; and the late Hon Bryan Fairfax's House in Saville- Row was sold by Auction for 3900 1 to the Right Hon. the Countess of Burlington. It is said, that at the last Sale of Teas at the East- India House, the worst Sort sold for Six pence a Pound more than the better sort the Week before, and the the whole amount of the two Sales was upwards of a Million Sterling. We hear that the Master Coachmen of some Machines on the Western Road, are under Prosecution of several Gentlemen who were their Passengers, for stopping so often and so long on the Road, to dispose of Fish, & c which they take from London, { instead of making that Expe- dition which they undertake to do) to the great Injury of their Passengers. Our Correspondent at Exeter acquaints us, that there is in the Possession of Mr. Tucker, of Down St. Mary, about eight Miles from that City, a Hog, the Circumference of which behind the Shoulders is six Feet and an Inch, from the Tip of the Nose to the End of the Tail is ten Feet and an Inch, he is four Feet five Inches high, and is sup- posed capable of drawing eight hundred Weight A few Days since a Woman, near Oxford Road, was sold by her Husband to another Man for a Leg of Mutton, & c. with whom she cohabited three or four Days, but being too lavish in bestowing invigorating Medicines on her new Spouse, he expired without sufficiently satisfying her Curiosity and Inclination. Last Monday Evening as three Officers belonging to a Regiment quartered in Kent, were coming from Dart- ford in two Post- Chaises, the Driver of that in which two of them were, not going so fast as they imagin'd he might, they both got out, and, being in Liquor, one of them beat him with a Whip, and the other ran him thro' the Body, so that the poor Fellow died immediately. They were in a few Minutes seiz'd by a Butcher who Was com- ing by, carried to Greenwich, and confined all Night in the Cage, and the next Day committed to the County Ga0l. The Coroner's Inquest have since sat on the Body of the Boy, and brought in their VerdiCt Wilful Murder. The Fact was done on Black Heath The two Officers belong to Lord Charles Hay's Regiment, and one 0f ' em is Heir to six Hundred Pounds a Year Forfar, the Life Guardman, taken up for treasonable Correspondence, is discharged out of the Second Troop ot Life- Guards, and delivered over to the Civil Power. Yesterday se'nnight a Man and his Wife who had taken a House on the Backside of Litchfield Street, Birmingham, were both found dead. They had burnt Cokes to Warm the Room, and were supposed to be suffocated, there be- ing no Draught in the Chimney to Carry off the smoke. Their Bodies were open'd, and the Coroner's Jury brought in their Verdict Suffocation. The Sloop Charming Elizabeth, Artim, from London, is cut off by the Negroes on the Coast of Guiney, and the Captain killed. It is remarkable, that a few Days before Sir Robert Cornewall's Illness, he prophecied that he should soon be taken ill, and that his Cousin the General, [ see an Ac- count of their Deaths in 0ur last paper], and another Gen- tleman of his Acquaintance would also be taken ill, at the same Time, and that they should all die within a short Space of each other. The General was accoroingly taken ill as Sir Robert had predicted, and, not knowing the Baronet was so, or what he had said concerning their Ill- ness and Death, told his Friend to the same Purport. The Gentleman their Friend was taken ill when they were, but is recovered. The Baronet died on Sunday Night, was put into a Lead Coffin on Monday, and carried out of Town on Tuesday Morning. DEATH ( says an old Writer) is honourable, advantageous, and necessary : Honour- able in old Men to make Way for young ones : . advantageous to those that get Legacies by it : And necessary for married People that have no other Delivery. It was observed that the Chariot of a Gentleman of Fortune waited at a certain eminent Chocolate- House from last Wednesday Evening till the Friday Noon follow- ing, when it drove away with a new Master, the old one being by the Turn of a Die turn'd out of it, and obliged to walk Home, as he could not spare a Shilling for a Chair. SUNDAY'S and MONDAY'S POSTS. Arriv'd a MAIL from Holland. COPENHAGEN, April 5. SIX of our Sea Officers have obtained Permission to go and serve in the French Navy, so long as the War may last between England and France. Genoa, March 23 The Master of an English Vessel, arrived from Tunis, reports, that they are so intent upon the War with the Algerines, that they fit out no Vessels for Cruizes; and that the Son of the Bey of Tu- nis, who ranges about with a flying Camp, had cut in Pieces a Detachment of Algerines, and sent to Tunis the Heads of the principal Officers of it, as Trophies of his Victory. Leghorn, March 2;. The last Letters from Corsica im- port, that Paoli, General of the Malecontents of that Island, skilfully improving two considerable Advantages he lately gain'd over the Republick's Troops, has march'd up to Bastia, and blocks up that City so closely on the Land Side, that it is with great Difficulty the Inhabitants Can procure Provisions from the Country. . Dunkirk, April 6. The Prince de Soubise is assembling the Troops that are to encamp in this Neighbourhood. We hear that all the East Indiamen' are to be converted into Men of War, for the King's Service. On the 28th ult. a great Convoy set out from Douay for Cambray. Such large Quantities of Corn have been amassed in French Flanders, that the Magazines could not hold them. ' The Overplus it placed in Convents and private Houses. Amsterdam, April I 2. We learn from Petersburgh that the Court of Russia has prohibited the Exportation of all Kinds of Timber from the Port of Narva. PLANTATION NEWS. Extract of a Letter from Virginia, dated Feb. 8. " We are at present fitting out an Expedition against the Shawnese Indians. Four Companies are already on their March, who are to be join'd by about two hundred Cherokees, a Nation in Alliance with us. They are to proceed to the Enemy's chief Town, and to spare neither Age nor Sex, as this is the Nation that committed such Barbarity on our Frontiers last Summer. " Our Advices from New York are very agreeable. They write that Generals Johnson and Shirley, between whom there is a very good Understanding, are at the Head of ten thousand Men, resolved to attack Crown- Point by the End of April or Beginning of May. And Governor Sharp, of Maryland, is to proceed with one thousand Men trom Philadelphia, one thousand from his own Government, Washington's Regiment of one thou- sand from Virginia, and one thousand Cherokee Indians, against Fort Dushen. " By the last Gazette from Philadelphia there is an Account of seventy eight People being killed at a Place called Ninisinks, and fourteen Plantations burnt by the Delawar Indians, who live in the New York Government. The Government of Philadelphia has offered a Reward of three hundred and fifty Dollars for each of the Officer's Heads." COUNTRY NEWS. . Chatham, April 16. We hear from Sevenoakes, that a Farmer of that Place had given Leave to the Soldiers to cut the Turnip Tops, which were growing in a large Field of his for some Time past; but having Occasion to turn some Sheep into that Field he gave Notice, and de sir'd them to cut no more, and order'd a Man Servant to look out ; however, two Soldiers came to cut the Tops as usual, and on the Servant's endeavouring to hinder them, one of them wounded him with a Bayonet, and otherwise so beat and abus'd him that he died in two Days afterwards. On Wednesday and Thursday Nights there was as hot a Press on the River below Bridge, and in Wapping, Ro- therhithe, & c. as has been known for some Time past, whereby a great Number of useful Hands were procured for his Majesty's Service. Next Week a great Quantity of Chain and other Shot, together with other warlike Stores and Bombs, & c. will be embarked in the River. Their Destination is a pro- found Secret. Yesterday 13 press'd Men were brought from Hunting- donshire, guarded by a Party of Lord Robert Manner's Regiment, to the Savoy ; two of whom cut off their Fore Fingers, in order to make themselves incapable of Ser- vice. The Camp on Barham Downs will, we hear, be formed the first Week in May. Thursday being Maundy Thursday, the Charity of his Majesty was distributed at the Banquetting House, White hall, to as many old Men and Women as his Majesty is Years of Age, viz. Cloth, Linnen, Woollen, Shoes, and 72 new Shillings, 24 Herrings, two Cod Fish, two Sal- mon, Bread, ic. in Commemoration of our Saviour's washing his Disciples' Feet before his Crucifixion ; the Lord Almoner performed the Ceremony. After Divine Service the Partakers of this Charity were entertained in the Banquetting Housfe, and each received a Wooden Bowl of Wine to drink his Majesty's Health. Dr. Pearce, Bishop of Bangor, is recommended by his Majesty to the Dean and Chapter of Rochester to be chosen Bishop of that See. And the King has been pleased to grant to the said Bithop ot Bangor the Deanry ot St. Peter, Westminster, void by the Death of the late Bishop of Rochester. London Gazette The Rev. Richard Strange, B. A. is presented to the Rectory of Land- Wey, in the County and Diocese of Hereford. The Rev. Mr. Richard Morgan, of Magdalen College,: Cambridge, is admitted and instituted to the Vicarage of the Parish Church of Cherbury'. in the County of Salop nd Diocese of Hertford, vacant by the Death of the Rev.

Knight of the Shire for the County of Cumberland, and Lieutenant and Cultos Rotu lorum of the County of Westmoreland : By whose Death an Estate of Fourteen Thousand Pounds per Annum comes to Sir James Lowther, of Lowther in Westmoreland Bart pursuant to the Will of the late Sir James Lowther, Bart. The present Sir James having also the late Lord Lonsdale's Estate, is esteem'd the wealthiest Man in the three King doms. He is a very compleat Gentleman, near of Age. Some Time tince E s P , Esq; threw himself from the high Rock at Bristol, and dashed him self in Pieces. On Tuesday last, at Milton in Buckinghamlsire, near Newport Pagnell, about Eleven in the Forenoon, a tum- bling Noise, like Thunder at a Distance, was heard at the Bottom of that Town near the Pond, where a Man and his Wife went out of Doors, and perceived the Tops of the Willows to shake, and heard ; an Hissing in the Pond, as if Ball of red hot Iron had been thrown into it, from which there arose a Smoak, and the Water seem'd to boil, throwing up Waves seven or eight Feet high: And at near the same Time the like Agitation was perceived in the Pond leading to Broughton, by a Person who was at work hard by. Our Correspondant says he was not an Eye witness of either of these Commotions, but that he heard an uncommon Noise about that Time ; that he had made Enquiry, and had n0 Reason to doubt the Truth of the Fact, though no Tremor of the Earth was then per- ceived. LONDON, Saturday, APRIL 17. On Thursday Seventy- two Bills, publick and private, were signed at the House of Lords, by Virtue of his Ma- jesty's Commission. We hear that an additional Duty will soon be laid on Lead. A Prohibition is laid on the Exportation not only of Saltpetre, but Gunpowder, Stores, Ammunition, and all warlike Materials, to Foreign Parts, and even Coastwise in Great Britain, except what is for the Seivice of the Government. The Days fixed for the Embarkation of the Hessian Troops are the 26th, 27th, and 28th of April ; for the Hanoverians are the 14th, 15th, and 16th of May. The Reports concerning Peace, we are informed have very little Foundation ; Terms of Accommodation being as little known now as they were six Months since. The Express that arrived last Monday from Admiral Hawke, brought Advice, that the Admiral was cruizing with his Squadron off the Harbour of Brest, and had dis- posed of his Ships in such a Manner, that nothing could go in or out without his Knowledge ; and that a few Days before the Departure of the Express, several French Men of War and Transports weigh'd Anchor, and were pre- paring to come out, but, upon observing the English Fleet, thought proper to return. It is reported, that an Embargo will be laid on all fo- reign Ships loading at Shields or Newcastle with Coals. We learn from unquestionable Intelligence that the Dutch have furnished the French at Dunkirk with Dog- gers, Galliot- hoys, and other Vessels, for their intended lnvasion — Should the French invade these Kingdoms thus assisted, it is hoped, by every Well- wisher to our pre- sent happy Establishment, that the Property of Hollanders in out publick Funds will be confiscated for the Benefit of the Nation, as a just and equitable Chastisement for so signal a Perfidy.

THO. LANE, MAYOR of the said City, and Clerk of the Markets. We are assur'd that the following is an authentick Ac- count ot the unhappy Murder of Mr. Martin Yesterday se'nnight, about Eleven at Night, J. Ogle, Esq; Captain of Dragoons 011 the Irish Establishment, came into Mr. Martin's House, and told him that he was lock'd out of his Lodgings, and must therefore sit up there that Night. Mr. Martin said that he wished he could have accommo- dated him with a Bed, but as he could not, if he pleased, he would sit up with him. They drank but three Pints of Wine between that and Four o'Clock, when they went to sleep, and were awaken'd about Seven by the Poker fall ing out of the Fire, when the Captain said he would go Home. On Mr. Martin's telling him there were three Piuts of Wine to pay for, he drew his Cuteau unperceiv'd by Mr. Martin, who was behind him, and sinking it un der his Left Arm, stabb'd him in the Bowels, and doing the same twice over his Shoulder wounded him in the Temple and Neck. Mr. Martin crying out Murder ! the Captain was secur'd, ana being carried before the Justice, was ask'd by him. How he could commit so shocking an Action ? to which he answer'd. That there were Two others in Company, one a Tall Black Gentleman, who did it : On which he was taken back to the House, and con ducted to Mr. Martin's Bed- Side, who being informed of what the Captain told the Justice, declar'd, on the Word of a dying Man, That there were only the Captain and himself together all the Night, and that he had given him the Wound ; whereupon the Juttice committed him to Gaol. The Coroner brought in his Verdict Wilful Murder by a Lunatick ; and a Commission of Lunacy has since been taken out against him. His Behaviour to a Noble Lord at the Opera, to a Gentleman of Distinction at the Assembly at Mount's Coffee- House, & c. & c within a Month past, prove he was Non Compos, and reflects on his Friends for permitting him to go arm'd, by which he has made a miserable Widow, ( who is big with Child) and seven young Children Orphans.

LONDON, Tuesday, APRIL 20. Admiralty Office, April 20. HIS Majesty's Ship the Orford arriv'd at Plymouth the 16th Instant, being sent in by Sir Edward Hawke with two French Ships taken off Cape Ortegal by the Newcastle, one of them of 14 Guns and 57 Men, and having 183 Soldiers on board, bound to Cape Breton ; the other a Schooner, bound to Quebec, with Wine, Musket Balls, and Flour. Lond Gaz This Day's Holland Mail brings Advice, that the Body of Troops to be embark'd on board the Squadron at Tou lon ( which will put to Sea in a few Days) amounts to near Twenty Thousand Men : And add, that, according to the last Letters from Brest, a small Squadron was to sail likewise in a few Days from that Port, on a secret Expe- dition : And further, that the grand Squadron under the Marquis de Conflans was to have been ready to put to Sea before the 20th Instant. A Letter from a Gentleman at Paris to his correspon dent here, after observing in what Perplexity that Govern- ment is, concludes, " Sad State of Matters, when we dare " not ask for Peace, nor offer War " We hear that Admiral Boscawen, with eight Ships of the Line, four Frigates, and several Transport vessels, will sail, in a few Days for the American Seas. It is rumour'd that the French Fish Prizes are order'd to be sunk at the Mouths of the following Harbours, viz Boulogne, Brest, Rochelle, and Cherburgh. Our Advices from Carolina say, that by their Accounts from Jamaica his Majesty's Ships had sent in there 23 French Vessels, four of them Guiney Men, and two others richly laden, with Sugars, Indigo, Cocoa, Cash, & c. We hear, from good Authority, that it being conceiv'd by our Government that our Allies the Dutch, are not acting agreeable to Treaties enter'd into with us, has occa sion'd some Remonstrances upon that Subject. The great Zeal of the Nobility and Gentry for his Ma jesty's Service having almost compleated the Corps for which impressed Men were intended, publick Notice has been given in the London Gazette, that his Majesty is gracioully pleased to suspend and stop the further Execu tion of the Act for the speedy and effectual Recruiting his Land Forces ami Marines, from and after the first Day of May next. The Commissioners of the Stamp Duties have given Notice, that from and after the 18th Instant no Licence is to be granted for selling Ale or Beer, without being first stamped with the Additional Duty ot Twenty Shillings : And that from and after the 15th, every Person who shall sell any Playing Cards not being inclosed in Paper and Thread, stamp'd and mark'd as the Law directs, is to forteit Twenty Pounds for every Pack so sold, or exposed to Sale, one Half to the Informer, with full Costs of Suit. By the Act for laying a Duty on Plate, which is Five Shillings for every Hundred Ounces as far as four Thou sand, all Persons within the District of the cheif Office of Excise in London, are to enter their Plate at that Office, and all other Persons at the next Office to where they live, and at the same Time to pay the Duty ; and to pay every Year within thirty Days after the Commencement of the Year. The first Entry to be made within thirty Days after the 5th of July next, under Penalty of 10 I. half to the Informer ; to be determined in London before the Commissioners of Excise, or in any Court of Record, with Liberty of Appeal trom the Commissiorners of Excise to those of Appeal, and all other Places in England by two Justices of the Peace, with- Appeal to the Quarter Sessions. The Forfeitures are to be levied by Distress 0n Goods, out it no Goods are found, then the Person to be committed to Gaol till the Money is paid. No Notice or Entry is necessary for any new Acquisition of Plate within the Year. Persons receiving Plate in Pawn, without using it, are not liable to pay the Duty, but the Owners thereof are Church Plate not to pay the Duty ; nor the Stock in Trade of any Goldsmith or Manufacturer of Plate, ex cept for what shall be used by him, or in his Family. The Archbishop of Canterbury continues, we hear, dan gerously ill. It is said for certain, that Dr. Egerton, Dean of Here ford, willslucceed Dr. Pearce in the See of Bangor. Thursday Morning, about Three o'Clock, as the Cook at the Shakespear's Head, Covent- Garden, was endea vouring to part two young Officers who had drawn their Swords at each other, was run through the Body by one of them so desperately, that it's feared his Wound wil prove mortal. *** That Cruelty and Cowardice are generally insepa- rable, has been verified in the Circumstances of the Mur- der committed by two Officers of the Army on the Driver of a Post Chaise, mention'd in the First Page: From the Particulars we have since collected, it appears that they were both in Liquor, and pricked the Horses with their Swords to make them go faster, on which the Post Chaise Driver desired them not to be so cruel, and then one of them knock'd him down, and, as he lay under the Horse's Feet, the other ran him through the Body with so much Violence, that his Sword stuck in the Ground and the two inhuman Monsters even beat and slash'd him after he had received his Death- Wound. In the mean while the Driver of another Post Chaiae, which was a lit tie a- head of them, alighted in order to save his Comrade ( as they both belonged to the same Master) and had doubtless been served in the same Manner, had he not been a stout sturdy Fellow, and kept them at Bay with his Whip ; for it seems these Sons of Mars could not fight when they met with any Resistance. A Man that was hedging at a little Distance, and saw the tragical Af fair, came up next, arm'd with his Bill, and set upon one of the Captains, swearing he would cleave him down if he did not instantly deliver up his Sword, which the Of- ficer readily complied with, and so was secured, while the other ran away : But a Butcher riding by at that Instant, the gallant Hedger gave his Prisoner in Charge to him, and ran after the other Captain, whom he overtook and disarm'd in like Manner. And now let us inform our Readers of the Occasion of this barbarous Deed.— These Officers were recruiting at Gravesend, and, after spending some Days there, long'd to see a Play : Accordingly they took a Post Chaise for this important Business; but fearing they should not be at the Play- House Time enough, at the Rate the Post Boy drove, in their Rage and Fury for so material a Disappointment, they committed this shock- ingly barbarous and cowardly Act. One is but nineteen Years old. BANKRUPTS. Thomas Williams, of Haverford- west, Watchmaker.
