BERROW's Worcester JOURNAL. [ Printed at his OFFICE in Goose- Lane, near the Cross.] Price Two- Pence, THURSDAY, November 4, 1756. N02466 INSTRUCTIONS From the GENTRY, CLERGY, and FREEHOLDERS of the County of YORK ( dated Oct. 18, 1756) ; 5a their Representatives in Parliament, the Right Honour- able Lord Down, and Sir Conyers Darcy, Knight of the Bath. AS the approaching Winter, if we may judge from the Necessity of the Times, and the seaaonable Expoftulations of the People, is likely to become a Session of much Business and Reformation, we most earnestly recommend to you a dili gent Attendance on Parliament, and an active Scrutiny into all those dire and fatal Springs of our Military Disasters, and perplexed Negotiations, which have brought such Indignity and Burden upon these abused Realms. The Extremity, long predicted, seems now to advance with hasty Strides. It is, alas! a Truth which every Voice authenticates; and therefore your Constituents conjure, that you will be the faithful, and honest, Counsellors of Royalty; and be no longer amused with the futile Fro- jects, and venal Speeches, of Self designing Men; who, in Proportion as they promise, and dispense, only attempt to enslave, and become the prodigal Spendthrifts of our Patrimonies and Acquirements. That the Welfare of this Country may not be totally unhinged, either through our Crimes, or the Abuse of Secondary Means, we hope, that you will not only endea- vour to introduce a Change of Men, but of Morals and Measures; that the rank Enormities, which [ deluge this Land, may not be laid to the Charge and Examples of its Magistrates and Senators: That Venality and Gaming, the Bane of Business, and the Ruin of Integrity, may, In particular, no longer make their Proselytes so servile Dependence, or press into their Service Advocates for so- reign and pernicious Systems. * We farther lament, for the Sake oF ourselVes', and the Illustrious Family on the Throne, that when, through the Fate of Human Nature, his most Gracious Majesty shall be demanded to other Glory, that the Heir- apparent must succeed to so disadvantageous a Prospect we mean, to so immense a Debt, as makes each Proprietor tremble, and each Individual sad. Let it then be your constant Endeavours, by all equi- table Means, to make this Burden light, and the Yoke easy : And, if a Continent must be supplied ; if our Spoils must be shared; let America partake, rather than un- grateful Germany, the Sepulchre of British Interest. It is with no little Concern we find those to be the open Tenets now, which formerly were, with some Modesty and Address, concealed. But we apprehend, and ' tis hoped you also will conceive it, that where the Interest of two Estates, centering in the same Person, interfere, that the lesser should give Way, and be subservient to the greater. This is the manifest Rule of Right, the most usual and natural Expectation. This loyal and martial County, the Leader in a late Season of Danger, the first in Rank for Opulence, Extent and natural Advantages, presumes further to advise, that you will oppose ( unless Exigencies change) all future Schemes of receiving Foreign Mercenaries into this Land, and that a constitutional Militia, with our own TroopS, may supply the Occasions for which Aliens were import- ed ; and that we may have no further Cause to fear and say, with Mattathias,' God forbid that we should forfake * the Law and the Ordinances.* We think it superfluous to ask. your Enquiry into the Nature of those Measures, which have deprived our Me diterranean Fleets of a Home, and Trade of its Protec- tion. A Loss that has reduced considerably the Use and good Effects of our Naval Power, and given the Enemy such Advantages, as Britain will severely feel, as well throughout the War, as on the ballancing Day of Ac- compt. In a Word, so just and strong a Satire on Go vernment and Naval Command, as the Loss of that essen tial Place, is what this Country has not before experienced. We confide for Investigation and impartial Justice in the Royal Promise. Your Indignation, Gentlemen, on this Event, we know, cannot be exceeded. What Instances of deserv'd Complaint we have omitted, be pleased to let your own Feelings and Reflections supply. To the AUTHOR, & c. [ L. Ev. Post. o . R Vox Populi, Vox Dei. ' YOU have heard the Voice of the People, from one End of the Nation to the other, crying aloud for Justice on Those, who. through their Ignorance, Negligence, or Treachery, suffered the british Crown to be robb'd of that inestimable Jewel, Minorca ; for Justice on Those, who have misapplied the immense Sums given last Year, and suffer'd our Colonies to be over run and ravaged by a barbarous and merciless Enemy 5 for Justice on Those, who have suffer'd our Commerce to be sup- press'd, and the British Flag to be dishonour'd ; for Justice on Those, who, by a long Train of ruinous Measures, have brought this noble and once free Kingdom into the most desperate and dangerous Circumstances. And tho', Sir, the Voice of the People hath not yet been able to obtain any Part of that Justice, which is so much wanted and desired ; of that Justice, which is so essential to his Majesty's Honour, and his Subjects' Happiness ; yet, as They, whose eVil Conduct hath caused such general and just Complaints; as They, who have abused his Ma- jesty's Royal Confidence, have dishonour'd his Crown and injured his People, in a most ignominious Manner, by not sending out a Fleet Time enough to prevent the InVasion of Minorca, and by not sending one strong enough to relieve it, when it was invaded, cannot be unknown to his sacred Majesty's great Wisdom ; so it is not to be doubted, from his Majesty's most gracious Answer to the Address of his City of London, from his innate Love of justice, from his Affection for his People, and his well- known Ardour for the Honour of his Crown, that they will soon receive Mark's Of his Royal Displeasure, as the first Step absolutely necessary towards obtaining that Justice which the Voice of his People To loudly call for, and without which, no proper Enquiries can indeed be made, nor Justice obtain'd on such Offenders. The Ears of Majesty are, indeed, so generally be set with Time- ferving Sycophants, and Tools of delegated Power, who so disguise the Truth, and misrepresent their Peoples' Complaints, that it requires no small Degree of Wisdom in Princes to see through their deceitful Glosses, and discover their designing Falshoods. How far such Of- fenders may have attempted to deceive the Ears of Roy- alty, may, though not certainly known, be reasonably guess'd at, by the many mean Tricks and low Artifices they have made use of to draw off the Resentment of the Publick from themselves, and to fix it upon a Person they employ'd. Their little Stratagems of this Kind have, indeed, been numberless: But, Sir, it is not for Justice on a single Commander only, that the Voice of the People hath so loudly call'd ; but for strict and impartial Justice on all Offenders, without Respect of Persons. Im- partial justice will never admit the Crimes of principal Offenders to be thrown on One, who can, in the worst Light, be only an Accessary ; nor ever suffer an innOcent or less guilty Person to be sacrificed to skreen the most Guilty. Such a Sacrifice, would, indeed, rather increase than abate the People's Complaints. That Justice, which the Nation wants, and so loudly calls for, cannot be ob- tain'd by partial Enquiries; nor can the Judgment of the Publick be imposed on by Reports perfectly fabulous, and Gazettes manifestly dishonest. No, Sir, the Publick will not be deluded by false Reports and partial Publications, nor suffer their Resentment to be drawn off from the prin- cipal Offenders. Nothing, Sir, but strict and impartial Justice, on all Offenders, will answer the Voice of the People, and take away the Cause of their Complaints. It is not, Sir, for the Sake of Revenge that the Nation thus calls so loudly for Justice; but because they well know, that Justice can only procure Honesty ; and that They can never expect to have Servants tolerably good, if they do not pUnish and make some Examples of Those that are so abominably bad. I am, Sir, your humble Servant, BrITANNICUS. Robert Henley, of Grange, in Hampshire, Esq; will be appointed Attorney- General to his Majesty, in the room of William Murray, Esq; now Lord Chief Justice of England, and a Peer by the Stile and Title of Lord Mansfield. Copies of the Instructions given, and Orders sent to a certain Admiral, have been delivered to the Judge- Advocate; and it is said that Admiral Smith is, or will be, appointed President of the Court Martial. About the Nomination of a President for this intended Court, some Arguments have arose. As our only Ally the King of Prussia is in the Heart of an Enemy's Country, inviron'd with powerful Enemies, who threaten no less than utter Destruction both to him and us, it is to be hoped that those Foreign Troops whom We have here at present in our Pay, will be sent over to reinforce him, as his good Success may pave the Way for a speedy Accommodation. Some People say that an Express is arrived from the Ottoman Porte, with Advice, that if the Russians march any Forces against the King of Prussia, the Grand Signior Will send 150,000 Turks directly against them. There is an Account that a Privateer of 32 Men, be- longing to Guernsey, had taken a French Coasting Vessel » and put seven Men on board, and afterwards with the remaining 25 attacked another Ship, who engaged them some Time ; but the Enemy's Gunner losing one of his Hands put them in Confusion, and the Privateer taking Advantage thereof, immediately boarded the Vessel Sword in Hand, and found on board 100 Soldiers, with Arms, & c. complete, together with their Wives and Children, bound for Canada. We fear the present epidemical Sickness which has pre- : vailed on board his Majesty's Fleet may be attributed to bad and corrupted Food ; for it is strongly suspected that some Hog Feeders have lately hit Opon a cheap Method of fattening them, by the Greaves of the Whale Blubber after boiling at Greenland Dock and Deptford ; and the pestilential Smell proceeding from a lately erected Feeding House near Kent Street, whenever the Wind is easterly, seems to confirm that Suspicion: Whether Humanity to our brave Sailors as well as the immediate Service to our Country, does not require some Notice hereof, is submit- ted to our Readers ? A young Lady of Rank and Fortune has lately made an Elopement with an Officer; and, notwithstanding the most diligent Search, no Intelligence can be got of them. They have been missing ten Days. A short Time fince, upon Bans of Matrimony between two young People being published in a certain Church without the City, the Father of the Man being present, openly and angrily forbid the same; which excited much Laughter in the Church and Neighbourhood. On WcdnesdAy Morning Thomas Airey, Esq; Son and Heir of the late John Airey, Esq; of York, who died about a Month since, was found dead in his Bed at his Seat at Crow- Hall. ' Tis supposed he was seized with an Apoplexy. Friday Morning died, at his Grace the Duke of Queens- bury's Seat, at Amesbury, in Wiltshire, the Lord Drum- lanrig, his Grace's only Son. Several Frigates of War are ordered to be got ready forthwith, to cruize in the Channels, and along the Sea- Coasts of France and Holland. Mr. Phillips, Master of the Intrepid Man of War, who lost his Right Leg and Thigh in the memorable Engage- ment of the 20th of May last, we hear has obtain'd a handsome Pension for Life. FRIDAY'S and SATURDAY'S POSTS* IRELAND. Dublin, October 19. THURSDAYlast a Porter, in Kevan- Street, sold his Wife and three Children for Eight- pence and two Quirts of Ale ; but on the Woman's offering to go with the Purchaser, a Party of Females rescued her; the Hus- band was also taken into Custody by Order of a Com- mittee of Porters, and one of them sitting as Judge, he was tried, found guilty, and sentenced to the Stocks, in which he was accordingly put, where he continued till Four next Morning. LONDON. [ Thursday, Oct. 28. Yesterday, and not before, the Right Hon. Henry Fox, Esq; resign'd the Seals as Secretary of State; and we can assure the Public, from undoubted Authority, that liis Grace the D of N resign'd this Day, The Pearl, Thompson, and Hazard, Coxen, from Pe- tersburgh, and three Vessels from Riga, are lost near Or- fordness. The Nelly, M'Elveney, from Ireland for New- York, is lost near Londonderry, but the Crew saved. The Horatio, Serjent, from St. Eustatia for Amster- dam, is lost in the Texel. The Glory and the Juste, from St. Domingo, are taken by the Blakeney Privateer of Liverpool. The Master of a Ship arrived at Newcastle from the Baltick, brings Advice, that a French Privateer, which had taken several Vessels on the North Coast, was run down a few Days ago by a large English Ship, and all the Crew perished. The Beaver, Curlet, from London for South- Carolina, is taken and carried into St. Sebastian's. The Pretty Betsey, Capt. Edwards, from London for New- York, is taken by a French Privateer, and carried into the Groyne. The Isabella, Henderson, from Italy for Ireland, is taken and carried into Portmahon. - SUNDAY'S and MONDAYS POSTS. Arriv'd the MAILS from Holland and Fimders. PARIS, October 23. LETTERS received last Wednesday from Marseilles advise, that the Algerines haying taken the City of Tunis, put about ten thousand of the Inhabitants to the Sword, sparing neither Age nor Sex, and afterwards pil- laged the Place ; but not finding all the Wealth they ex- pected, and being told that the Townsmen had lodged their Money in the Hands of, the French Inhabitants, they threatened the latter with immediate Death, if they did not deliver it up ; upon which the French took Refuge with the English. Paris, Oct. 22. We learn from Poland, that the Rus- sians are advancing a great Pace, and that the first Column of them may arrive towards the End of next Month in Prussia, where the rest will soon follow. From the LONDON GAZETTE. Vienna, Oct. 16. We find, by some Lists handed abaut in Town, that the Number of Austrians killed in the late Action near Lowoschutz in Bohemia amounts to three thousand and eight Men, including the Officers, of whom eighteen were killed on the Spot, and ninety five wounded. Dresden, Oct. 20. On Sunday the 17th, the Saxon Troops, preceded by their General Officers, crossed the Elbe, at a Place called Raden, where the Prussians had a Bridge of Boats ; from thence they marched into a Plain in the Neighbourhood, and, after passing between two Batallions of Prussian Guards, they were received by two Battallions of the Prince of Prussia's Regiment, drawn upon the Right and Left; they there formed a Hollow Square, and had the Articles of War read, and the Mili- tary Oath administer'd to them. As there was but one Bridge laid over the River, and the Roads from the Saxon Camp were extremely bad, and as every Regiment took the Oath separatelv, this Ceremony lasted all that Day and the next. The Soldiers were all armed, but the Of- ficers have refused to enter into the Prussian Service. The whole Saxon Army consisted of sixteen thousand, three thousand of which were; Horse and Dragoons. The Soldiers are extremely well looking, and mostly young Men, and do not seem to have suffer'd for Want of Provi- sions during the Blockade of five Weeks. The Cavalry is almost ruined. The Convention and Capitulation, which his Prussian Majesty has made with the King of Poland, is said to be in Substance, . That the King of Poland yields his whole Army, in Saxony, to the King of Prussia : The Officers not to be compelled to serve against their Will. But the King of Poland to grant Dismission from his Service to such as shall ask it, who then shall be at Liberty to enter into the Prussian Service ; and those who do not chuse to ask their Dismission, are to be incapable of servirg during this War. The King of Poland is said to have given full Power to Count Rutofski, to grant such Dismissions to those Officers who apply for them ; and, it is thought, that many of the Saxon Officers will accept of Service. 2. That the Garrison and Castle of Konigstein shall re- main in the Hands of his Polish Majesty, he giving pro- per Assurances, that a perfect Neutrality shall be observed on his Part, and no Protection afforded from thence to the King of Prussia's Enemies, nor the free Navigation oi the Elbe any ways interrupted. 3 ' Ihe King of Poland to be at Liberty to go where he pleases.— He has accordingly resolved to set out this Day for Warsaw. The King of Prussia sets out this Day with Part of his Army for Bohemia. The Army his Prussian Majesty leaves in Saxony will return to their old Camp at Sedeliiz LONDON, [ Saturday, Oct. 30. INSTRUCTIONS from the City of LONDON to its Representatives in Parliament. To the Right Hon. SLINGSBY BETHELL, Esq-, Lord Mayor, Sir JOHN BARNARD, Knt. Sir ROBERT LADBROKE, Knt. and WILLIAM BECKFORD, Esq WE the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Commons of the City of London, in Common Council assem- bled justly alarmed at the critical and unhappy Situation of these Kingdoms, do most earnestly call upon you, our Representative., to exert your utmost Ability towards procuring a strict and impartial Parliamentary Enquiry into the Causes of these National Calamities. An almost total Neglect of our important Fortresses in the Mediterranean, of such inestimable Consequence to the Trade and Power of these Kingdoms, and the per- mitted Abscence of their principal Officers many Months after the Commencement- of Hostilities, the actual Loss of Minorca, and apparent Danger of Gibraltar, are Circum- stances which fill us with Amazement and Concern; but when we refleCt on the great Preparation for an Embarka- tion of Troops and Artillery, and the Equipment of a powerful Fleet publickly known to be carried on at Tou- lon, whose Neighbourhood to Minorca was sufficiently alarming, we cannot impute these fatal Events to NegleCt alone, and therefore conjure you to enquire, why a re- spectable Fleet was not immediately sent from hence, and why at last so small a Squadron was order'd upon this im- portant Service, without any Frigate, Fire Ship, Hospital Ship, Transport, or Troops beyond their ordinary Com- plement, and this at Time when our Naval Force was confessedly superior to the Enemy's. The Cruelties suffer'd, and Losses sustain'd by our Fel- low Subjects in North America, have long call'd for Re- dress, whilst the Mismanagements in the Attempts for their Support, and the untimely and unequal Succours sent to their Relief, have only served to render the British Name contemptible : We therefore require you to use your ut- most Endeavours for detecting all those who, by Trea- chery and MisconduCt, have contributed to those great Distresses, his Majesty having been graciously pleased to assure us, that he Will not fail to do Justice upon any Per- sons who shall have been wanting in their Duty to him and their Country. To these interesting Enquiries, we have but too much Reason to add our pressing Request, that you use your earliest Endeavours to establish a well- regulated and con- stitutional Militia, as the most honourable Defence of the Crown, and the most confident with the Rights of a Free People. And this we are more anxious to recomniend to your particular Care and Attention, as every Appreben- sion of Danger has furnished a Reason for increasing the Number of our regular Forces, and for the Introduction of Foreign Mercenaries; the Expence of which is insup- portable. We therefore trust that you will pursue this Measure before you Consent to the Grant of Supplies, Ex- perience having convinced us that your laudable Endea- vours afterwards may prove fruitless. The Insult offered to our Laws by a Claim of Exemp- tiofi which these Foreigners are said to have made; de- mands that you strictly inquire, whether the ordinary Course of Justice has teen interrupted or suspended on their Account, or whether any Person in Authority un- der his Majesty has given Countenance to such Claim, which if you should discover, we confide in your Resolu- tion and Integrity, that nothing will be wanting on your Part, to bring to Justice the Advisers and Instruments of such a Violation of the Bill of Rights, as the only Means Of quieting the Minds of his Majesty's loyal British Sub- jects, and at all Events we recommend it to you, to op- pose the Continuance of any Foreign Troops within the Kingdom, a Circumstance which must ever be considered as a Reproach to the Loyalty, Courage, and Ability of this Nation. We also hope, that you will endeavour to limit the Number of Placemen and Pensioners of late so remark- ably increased, and at a proper Season to restore Triennial Parliaments, as we conceive if the only Means to obtain a free Representative of the People. ' The immense Sums s0 chearfully paid, when almost every Measure refleCts National Disgrace, call upon you strictly to enquire into their Application, and we trust that you will carefully watch and endeavour to prevent all unnatural Connections on the Continent, in order to preserve the Independency of these Kingdoms. By rendering these necessary Services to your King and Country, you will give his Majesty she strongeft Testimony of your Duty and Affection, and most effectually secure to his Government Obedience and Respect. At the same Time we desire you thus publickly to ac- cept our most grateful Acknowledgments of your past ConduCt in Parliament, and enjoin you at all Times to hold sacred and inviolable the ACt made for establishing his Majesty's Right to the Crown of these Realms, and securing the Rights and Liberties of the SubjeCt ; and that you oppose every Measure tending to weaken that CompaCt, which under the Divine Providence will ever prove the best Security to his Majesty's Sacred Person and the Succession in his illustrious House. was so endearing to the Americans, that they perfectly idolized him; so that there is the greatest Reason to be- lieve that the utmost Harmony will subsist between them. We are assured that Admiral Knowles will speedily sail with a Squadron on an Expedition of great Importance 1 and it is said that he will soon exhibit a Vindication of his ConduCt at Jamaica. It is said by some of the Owners that the Antigallican's Prize has to the Amount of 50,000 1. in Specie on board. Some of the Owners are gone down to Portsmouth. The Three Brothers, from Stockholm, with Iron and Steel, for Nantz, and the Two Brothers, from Hamburgh, with Bale Goods, & c. for Bayonne, are both sent into Dover by the Folkstone Privateer. Last Week a Ship arrived off Dover, Under Spanish Co- lours, and made a Signal for a Pilot, upon which one im- mediately boarded him, and finding her to be a Prize, wrote a Letter to Capt. Death of the Terrible Privateer, ( who was his Acquaintance) to meet the said Ship in the Hope ; and accordingly Capt. Death went down in a Boat with thirty Men, armed with Cutlasses, & c. and after a Contest of about an Hour, made her a Prize ; She is re- puted worth 20,0oo I. The Triton, La Messereur, from Virginia and Falmouth to Guernsey, is taken and carried into Morlaix. An English Vessel is cut out of Gibraltar Bay by two small French Privateers- Private Letters from Madrid contradict very positively all that we learn from Genoa and Paris, and assert that his Catholick Majesty will remain steady in his Neutrality, from which his Subjects have already reap'd inexpressible Advantage. The Messenger that arrived Yesterday from the Prussian Camp, brings Advice, that the King of Prussia was in full March, with an Army of 70,000 Men, to attack the Austrians, so that News of a decisive ACtion is expected every Hour; especially as it is farther said, that such Measures have been taken that the Austrians cannot get away from him without fighting. . On Thursday last died, between Six and Seven o'Clock in the Evening, at Bath, the Most Noble Charles Noel Somerset, Duke of Beaufort, Marquis and Earl of Wor- cester, Earl of Glamorgan, Viscount Grosmont, Baron Herbert, Lord of Ragland, Chepstow, and Gower, all in. the County of Monmouth; as also Baron Beaufort, of Cal- decot Castle, and High Steward of the City of Hereford. A very strict Survey is ordered to be made by the Jus- tices of the Peace for the Liberty of Westminfter, of all Bakers of Bread ; the just Weight of that necessary Food having for some Time since the Rise of Bread, been very deficient, to the great Oppression of the Poor. Last Monday a poor Woman that lodged in an empty Room in Scroop's Court, in Holbourn, was found dead with a young Child sucking at her Breast ; there were two more Childien who were almost perished with Want. As soon as this dismal Tragedy was made known, the pro- per Officers took the Infants and sent them to the Work- house, where all Care imaginable are taken of them. We are informed the following Promotions are agreed on : His Grace the Duke of Devonshire to be' First Lord of the Treasury ; the Hon. Mr. Legge to be Chancellor of the Exchequer; the Hon. Mr. Pitt, Secretary of State; Sir Thomas Robinson, the other Secretary of State ; the Hon Charles Townshend Secretary at War; and Lord Temple to go Lord Lieutenant to Ireland. The Parliament is prorogued from Thursday the 18th of November to Thursday the rd of December next, then to fit for the Dispatch of Business.— Lond Gaz. Yesterday was held a great Council at Kensington, when all the Members of the Privy Council were summoned It is said some Alterations Will soon take Place at the Board for Trade and Plantations. • We hear that two Members for a neighbouring County have refused to present an Address to his Majesty from their Constituents. His Majesty has ordered 18oo1. to be distributed amongst the Innholders and Publick Housekeepers in the County of Surry; it is left to the Justices for the said County for to settle the Distribution, It is believed from some Preparations making for the Fleet designed for the Mediterranean, that the Port of Toulon, and the Shipping therein, will be saluted with English Bombs and Balls. General Blakeney and the several Officers, late in the Garrison ot Fort St. Philip, are daily expected home in a Man of War from Gibraltar; but it is said the Troops are ordered to continue in that Garrison. Letters have been received from Admiral Hawke's Squadron, dated off Minorca the 24th of September, which advise, that the Fleet had been very sickly, and that had it not been for the fresh Provifions on Board some French Transports bound to Minorca, which Providence threw in their Way, Half the Ship's Companies would have died ; and that the first Dispatches from England were received on the 22d of September, and contained an Order to return to Gibraltar. Other Letters bring Advice, that Admiral Hawke ar rived on the 6th Instant at Gibraltar, at which Place a more fatal Sickness prevailed than even that on Board the Fleet. Our Commerce has been considerably damaged by an armed Felucca belonging to Marseilles, which has taken twelve considerable Prizes in her Cruize between Malaga and Gibraltar. Notwithstanding the Accounts inserted in the Papers of the Earl of Loudon's being recalled, Letters lately re- ceived from thence affirm, that his Lordship's behaviour U1 On Thurfday next will be Publish'd NuMBER I.

Wednesday's and Thursday's POSTS, j LONDON. Tuesday, Nov. 2. IT is rumonr'd that the Empress Queen, in Resentment of our having already assisted the King of Prussia with Five Hundred Thousand Pounds, and of our Inten- tion to furnish him with a Million more, threatens to invade us next Season from the Netherlands, in Conjunc- tion with France, and to restore the Religion of Rome in England, by placing the Pretender on the Throne. The French Succours that were to assemble on the 23th of last Month, consisting of 33 Battalions and 6 Squa drons, and for whole Use a Train of 40 Pieces of Can- non, with Pontoons, & c. were drawn out of the Maga- zines of Strasburgh, have been countermanded, so that no foriegn Troops of the French Nation at least will enter Germany this Year. On Saturday Robert Henley, Efq; kiss'd his Majesty's Hand at Kensington, on being appointed Attorney- Gene- ral, in the room of the Hon. William Murray, Esq; now Chief Justice of England. As did the Hon. Charles York, Esq; on being appointed Solicitor General. Great Alterations are soon expected in all the publick Offices of the Kingdom. The Terms on which the Great Commoner comes into the Ministry, are, That a Militia shall be establish'd, tie Affair of Minorca, & c. be examined to the Bottom, and, that a particular Great Person be absolutely divested of all Power. On Saturday last two Gentlemen of Distinction, appa- rent Opposers in the Senate, were seen in close and ami- cable Conference at Saville- House. Last Sunday Night there was a great Assemblage of Ministers of State, & c. at a Noble Lord's near Queen's- Square. And Last Night several Peers and Great Persons met at the King's Head Tavern in Pall Mall, to consult upon a pro- per Change of Power, in order to redress the present Perturbations. We are assured that his Grace the Duke of Newcastle has not yet, nor is to resign, ' till it is determined who is to succeed hiin. It was remark'd last Sunday that a Great Lady who used to enjoy a high Degree of the ** Sunshine when- ever she appear'd at Court, had not one Ray darted on her all the Time she staid, to the great Surprise of all present. Upon the late Change in the Administration Admiral Knowles's sailing has been somewhat retarded 1 but we have the Pleasure to inform the Publick, that the Face of Affairs is so much turn'd in our Favour, that very shortly an important Blow may be expected to be struck, to the Astonishment of one particular Power. Admiral Boscawen is to be President of the Court- Mar- tial for the Trial of Admiral Byng, and his Arrival for that Purpose is daily expected ; as is also that or the Dept- ford Man of War ( not the Colchester) with the Witnesses on board to be examined upon this Trial. By a Correspondent at Chatham we are informed, that the Trial of Admiral Byng is daily expected to come on tn the River Medway, and that he will favour us with the Heads of such Examination from Day to Day. We are assured that Admiral Hawke demanded the Li- berty of the Port of Leghorn for Part or all his Fleet-, and upon some Hestitation declared, that if an Answer should be given in the Negative, the Town and Shipping must expect to be treated as Enemies. On this Subject an English Express has been forwarded to Sir Edward Hawke. We hear that a certain Officer, who went off with a Lady of Quality, is gone into the Service of the King of Prussia. An Embargo having been some Time since laid upon all Ships laden with Beef, Pork, and Butter, going trom . any of the Ports of Ireland, it his been represented to his Majesty In Council, by the Merchants and Traders of the City of Cork, that the prohibiting the Exportation cf Butter must inevitably be attended with the most fatal Consequences; and his Majesty has been pleas'd to order that the said Embargo, as far as relates to Butter, be taken off. From North Carolina, by the Way of New- York, we are informed of a Skirmish in Roman County between a Party of Indians in the French Interest, and the Catawba Indians in Alliance with the English, in which the latter gained a compleat Victory. It is reported that several more Regiments are ordered for North- America. This Morning it was strongly reported about Town, that one of out Sloops of War was taken by a large French Frigate, after an obstinate Engagement, and the Loss of several Hands on both Sides. A French Snow Privateer, taken to the Northward, is brought into Dover ; as also a British Herring Buss, taken by the French, but retaken. The Lord Dunlace, Caldwell, bound from Newry to New York, with Passengers, is lost in the Highlands, and all the People perished. Two other Vessels, Names un- known, were put ashore at the same Time. The Nancy, Todd, from Gottenburgh for Leith, is taken by a French Privateer, and ransomed. The Mermaid has brought Letters from Boston, of the third, fourth, and fifth of September, which contain 8n Account of the shocking Circumstances that have attended the Loss of Oswego. The Enemy carried their Barbarity to such a Pitch, that, after they had mastered the Gar- rison by the Treachery of some in the Place who let them in, they massacred the People, sparing no Age or Sex, cutting off Heads, and setting them upon Poles round about the Place, ripping up Bodies, and tearing out the Entrails, which they burnt, and by this Means ( so careless were they in their Rage and Fury) the Piace was set on Fire, and entirely consumed. It is reckoned that about 1000 of our People have been cut off there in this cruel Manner : And thus has that important Place been lost for want of timely Relief, through that indolent, dilatory Spirit, which seems to have influenced all our Measures and Operations. The unhappy Consequences of this Affair are, that all our Vessels on the Lake Ontario are fallen into the Enemy's Hands, and that Loudon is re- duced to act only upon the Defensive, and may find it hard enough to prevent the French from making any far- ther Progress. Friday was held, at Hick's- Hall, a general Session of Peace, When Samuel Andrews, of the Temple, was tried for making an Attempt to commit Sodomy on Mr. Bartie, and after a Trial of three Hours tie was found guilty, and sentenced to stand on the Pillorv, opposite the Temple Gate, and to be confined three Months in Wood- Street Compter. • Friday John Avery was committed to New- Prison, by John Fielding, Efq; being Charged with committing the destable Sin of Sodomy upon a Boy of about thirteen Years of Age, and giving him the foul Disease Last Week died in Hampshire, the Lady of Sir Edward Hawke, Commander in Chief of the Fleet in the Medi- terranean. The late Noble Duke of Beaufort derives his Genealogy from Geoffrey Plantagenet, Earl of Anjou, Son of Foulk, King of Jerusalem, and Grandson to Foulk Rechin, Earl of Anjou, Tourine, and Maine, by Maud the Em- press his Wife, Daughter of Henry I. King of England, Son of William the Conqueror ( whence it is observable, that his Progenitors have flourished with the Titles of Dukes, Marquisses and Earls, and have not descended to a lower Degree for these 700 Years) being lineally de- scended from John of Gaunt, Duke of Laucafter ( Son of King Edward 111.) who caused all his Children, by his third Wife Catherine Swinfoid, Daughter of Sir Payn Roet, alias Guyen, King of Arms, Widow of Sir Otes Swinford, Knt. to be called Beaufort, from the Castle of Beaufort, in the County of Anjou, the Place of their Nativity, which came to the House of Lancaster by the Marriage of Blanch of Artois, Queen 0f Navarre, with Edmund ( sirnamed Crouchback) Earl of Lancaster, fe- cond Son of King Henry the Third.

Thursday last one Prestage, otherwife Ockingston, was committed to Gloucester Castle Gaol for cruelly beating, in Company with another Person. not yet known, a poor Man as they were conducting him to the same Gaol for Debt a few Weeks ago, who afterwards died there, and whole Death the Coroner attributes to the Usage above- mentioned.

From the WESTMINSTER JOURNAL, Oct 3O, 1756, To the AUTHOR, & c. S I R, NOTwithstanding the Disapprobation of you, the Chief Watchman of Westminster, together with that of the whole of the honest Part of the People of England ; their Disapprobation of Foreign Mercenaries, I am speaking of, notwithstanding the repeated Beseechings of the People, I say, to deliver us from them, by establishing a National Militia, we are told of Colonel Yorke's continu- ing to urge the Dutch for their Six Thousand Ineffectuals ; who has, however, at length, received for Answer, what we have a long Time ago asserted, viz. Their Situation is such that they cannot comply with his Request, without laying themselves open 5 that is, running the Hazard of being overwhelmed with his Most Christian Majesty's Favours. But these High and Mighty States do more than this, and give a Kind of round- about Insinuation, that they had rather see Fifty or Sixty Thousand British Troops, or more if more are needful, come over thither [ furnish'd with British Cash enough to pay for every Thing] and that these should oblige the French not to become so near Neighbours of theirs. They would have a Sufficiency of our Troops sent over at once ; Troops that may be relied upon ; " for, as to our own, ( say they) we will not be bound to answer for their standing a single Shot from " the Enemy." And yet We have Those amongst Us, who, in their Folly, seem mightily desirous of increasing their Raree Show, by adding thereto a Set of such useless Creatures, having quite forgot that a Dependance upon these Nothings ( together with immature Advices) lost to us the acquiring a Victory, which would; in After times, have founded as glorious as any Thing of that Sort at this Day to be met with in the British Annals. Need I mention, that I have my Eye fixed on the genuine Ac count of the Battle of Fontenoy? to which may not im properly be tack'd the Action at Val, alias la Feldt. BRITONS ! the Farce is not yet ended ; Gibraltar is in the next Point of Sight. ' Tis going ; Who bids more ?. . ' tis going,—' tis going, ' tis going. Wrest the Hammer from that daring, that stupid, that inconsiderate Auctioneer, or, by Jupiter Ammon, ' twill be gone ! SNAP DRAGON. A CAUTION to the PEOPLE. ALthough a Change of Men is at this Time absolutely necessary ; yet a Change of Measures is absolutely more necessary. You have suffered greatly by those Men ; but you have suffer'd vastly more by their Measures. They are those which have multiplied your Taxes to their Ne plus ultra, and augmented your Debts to such an enormous Bulk. So that, ' till those Measures be destroy'd, both must encrease, ' till you are destroy'd yourselves. Here is, in short, no Hopes of Safety for you otherwise. ' Till the present pernicious System be changed, it will be im possible to hinder M rs either from squandering the publick Treasure, giving away your Territories to the Enemy, to grant them Peace, ( when, for want of Money, they cannot continue the War) or trampling on your Laws, and encroaching on your Liberties. Neither can any Men, aCting under the present System, either serve you, or be really your Friends. All Profes- sions that Way must be insincere, deceitful, and fallaci- ous ; since those Measures on which it is grounded will not permit them to serve you, were they inclined to do it. The present System is, in Fact, calculated to establish ar bitrary Power in M rs, and make them, in all Re- spects, Enemies and Tr rs to you. No good Man, therefore, no true Friend to his Coun- try, would, on any Account whatever, undertake to exe- cute so unconstitutional a System ; or accept of a Share in the Administration, but on Condition of having it abo- lish'd, and another substituted in its Room, founded on Principles diametrically opposite. Have your Eyes about you, therefore, at this critical Juncture, and upon a Change of Men, take Care, that it be not a Scheme to injure, instead of benefiting you, by skreening the Authors of your late Losses and Disgraces from Justice ; take Care that it be not a Change among Men of the same Stamp ; and that while the M s are turned out, the System of pernicious Politicks, that Canker Worm, still subsists.
