In the Amfterdam Gazette we find the following Paragraph, dated London Auguft 24. " Lieutenant- General Hop, Envoy Extraordinary from the States General, has demanded of the Miniftry the Releafe of the Dutch Man of War and Merchantmen that were brought into the Downs the 17th Inftant by fome of the King's Ships : His Excellency reprefented, that the Mails and other Materials on board the Ships in Queftion, not being included, by Treaties, in the Clafs of contraband Goods, they could not in Juftice flop nor detain thofe Ships; and he was anfwered, that the Cafe fhould be examined without Delay, and decided according to the Tenor of the Treaties." T h e fourth and laft W i n g to St. Bartholomew's Hofpital was ordered t o be etefted by a grand Meeting of the Governors held laft Thurfday ; on which Account the Tenants are to have legal Notice next Michaelmas to quit their Tenements within the T i m e limited by their feveral Leafes. When this Edifice is finilhed the reft of the Houfes in the Center will be pulled down, and the Statue of the late Dr. Ratcliff, in Brafs, will be ere& ed, he having left 20,000!. towards the faid Building, befides a confiderable Sum for the better Support of the faid Hofpital. Saturday Night a Courier arrived from Madrid, and we hear he has brought frefh Overtures from the Spanifh Court towards an Accommodation between England and France t tho' fome People here imagine that he brings an Account of an Engagement between the Englifh and French Fleets in the Mediterranean; but we are not inclined to believe the latter, becaufe we hear that the Departure of the Toulon Squadron is fufpended or countermanded. A great Number of Horfes were bought at Newbury Fair for the ufe cf the Government. There has not been fo great a Fair, for a demand of Horfes, ever known in the Memory of Man, as this laft was. Sunday Night three Gentlemen were robbed by two Highwaymen upon Hounflow Heath, in the Road from Stains, of their Watches and about fix Pounds in Money. An Exprefs arrived on Sunday at the Pruffian Minifter's is thought to have brought very important Particulars. Meffengers were immediately difpatched to fuch of the Miniftry as were in the Country, and alipircumftances feem to indicate fome Evept of the utmoft Confequence^ We fome T i m e ago mentioned the Motions of the Pruffian Troops, which the Accounts in other Papers hare fince appeared to contradidl; but the Truth is, this wife Monarch without feeming; willing to underftand the Deftination of the Auftrian Armies in Bohemia, fent M. Klingraff to Vienna, with a Letter written by his own Hand, to Demand a preclfe and categorical Declaration, What he might depend upon, as he had not fent a fingle Regiment into Si'lefia more than ufual, nor could his Faith in Treaties permit him, to fufpedt the Intentions of the Imperial Court, before he fhould have received the moft convincing Reafons for fo doing. However he kept his Troops canton'd in fuch a Manner, and always 5n fuch readinefs for a March, that he could at any T i m e enter Bohemia with at leaft 70,000 Men in five Days time. His Ambaffador at Vienna received only a quibbling and erafive Anfwer ; in confer e n c e of which, it is believed, that two Pruffian Armies, one of 60,000 and the other of 4- 0,000 are marched; and if they are fo, there is no doubt but we ( hall foort hear of their Operations. It is fuppofed that the msjl Cbrijlian King, according to his ufual gwd Fait)}, nas procured the Alliance of the Emprefs Queen by a private Article for the Recovery o f S i l e f i a : thus Frerxh Perfidy is likely to continue as fuccefsful in the Effufion of Chriftian Blood as ufual. It is confidently allerted, that the Embarkation which is fpeedily to be made, is d^ figncd fat Cotfica : That Hfond would be » better Place of" ReTTd£ zvous for ourjviediterfsrreaTTr ieets aft Minorca, and with this ftill greater Advantage, that it will eithef maintain itfelf, or by the free and exclufive Ufe of its Ports arifwef all our Occafions without Expence. T h e Rochefter Man of War has carried into Portfmouih fix Du'ch Veflels laden with Naval Stores, bound for one of the Ports of France.

Laft Week was interr'd at Summerton in the County of Suffoll- j the antient Burying'Place of tbe Family, the Remains of tbe Right Hon. Montague, Vifcount Blundell, .

He officiated as Lord Almoner at the Coronation of his late Majefty King George the Firft, to which Office his Family claim'd alternate Right with that of the Earl of Exeter's. He died poffeffed of a large Eftate in Ireland and England, which defcends to his three Daughters as Coheirefles : T h e Hon. Anna Maria Blundell, the Hon. Mrs. Ttumbail, and the Right Hon. Lady Raymond. We hear that Sir George Saville, Bart, of Rufford in the County of Nottingham, fent for thofe of his Tenants who he knew had Quantities of Corn, and requefted them, upon Pain of his Difpleafure, to carry it to the Market at 4 s. aBulhel, which was done accordingly, to the great Satisfaction and Relief of the poorer Sort of People. On Tuefday laft the Bury Stage- Waggoner was kill'd by the Shafts of the Waggon, coming out of the Star- Yard: This is the third Perfon killed by the fame Waggon and Horfes.

Laft Saturday John Hughes, Servant to Mr. Peter Snee, of Queen- Street, was fent to Wood- ftreet Compter, on fufpicion of Forgery, and Yefterday he was carried before Alderman Rawlinfon at Guildhall, who committed him to Newgate. He brought a Bill drawn upon Mr. Snee for 25 1. to which Mr. Stffee's Acceptance and Orders to be paid when due, by Meff. Vere and Co. Bankers, in Lombard- Street, were forged : Upon fearching him, another 25 1. Bill, with the fame counterfeit Acceptance, was found in his Waiftcoat Pocket. On Sunday Morning was married, at St. Paul's, Covent- Garden, the Rev. Mr. Mence of Bigglefwade, a Gentleman about 78 Years of Age, to Mifs K i t t y Glaffe, of Taviftock- Street, an agreeable young Lady about 22. Margate, Sept. 6. This Morning arrived his Majefty's Sloop W o l f , with the Convoy from Oftend ; alfo the Hazard Sloop, with the French Privateer, which fhe took off Yarmouth. Derby, Sept. 4. We have the Wirkfworth and Cromford Mob in T o w n this Evening, deftroying the French Stones ufed at oar Corn- Mills. They called at Durley, ( about a Mile o f f ) but the Mayor, whofe Conduft cannot be too much commended, got there with a Party of Dragoons juft before, and kept them off, till Mr. Gisbourne and Mr. Rivett came up, who, by mild Terms, prevented any Mifchief at thofe Mills. However they marched on to this Place, and pulled down three Pair of French Stones; when the Soldiers returned and took fome of the Rioters into Cuftody at the Holms M i l l s ; and in bringing them to the Town- Hall the Mob attacked the Dragoons with Stones, upon which they were obliged to fire, and wounded two Men. The T o w n is in the gteattft Confufion, and God knows how it will end. Briftol, Sept. 4. On Tuefday came on at the Guildhall a T r i a l between Mr. James Thomas, of this C i t y , Plaintiff, and Mr. Gregory, in Behalf of a Minor, his Wife's Son, Defendant, for the Eftate of the late Capt. John Thomas of Queen- ftreet. It appeared upon the T r i a l , that Capt. Thomas, in the Year 1743 made his Will in Favour of the Plaintiff, which Will was produced in Court, with the Captain's Name cut out, and was faid to have been cancelled by the Captain himfelf, another Will being produced of a later Date in Favour of the Defendant. The Trial lafted from Eight in the Morn', Ing till Five the Morning following. The Subftance of the Evidences being very judicioufly fumm'd up, and the Charge given, the Jury withdrew, and in about Half an Hour returned with a Verdift for the Plaintiff, the Defendant being obliged to refund the Arrears, and pay Coft of Suit.— Laft Sunday failed theTyger Privateer, Capr.

By all Accounts there is the Profpeft of a very fine Crop on the Ground ; and as we have had for fome Days paft the moft favourable Weather, it is to be hoped our Apprehenfions of a very late Harveft will be foon over, and the prefent exorbitant Price of Meal and Grain fpeedily reduced.— Saturday laft a Taylor's Wife in Multrees- Hili was brought to- bedof three Children, all likely to do well.

Marfeilles, Auguft 10. The Veffels deftined to tranfport our Troops to Corfica are ready to fail from Antibes, under the Lfcorte of two Galleys and two Chebeques. We fuppofe if the Toulon Fleet purs to Sea, it will be principally to proteft this Country; for there can be no Neceffity for hazarding a Battle merely to oblige the Englifh Squadron t o leave the Mediterranean. Before two Months/ and without ouffiring a Gun, the Seafon will oblige the Enemy to retire. Adrfi Hawke'j Squadron confifts of 18 Ships of the Line and lix Frigates ; M- Galiffoniere's only of 16 of the Line and five Frigates; but ours is better equipped than the other.
