BERROW's Worcefter JOURNAL. [ Printed at his OFFICE in Goose- Lane, near the Cross.] Price Two- Pence, THURSDAY, December 23, 1756. N° 2473 FRIDAY'S and SATURDAY'S POSTS. PARIS, December 4. HEY write from Cadis, that the Leon, in her Return from the South Sea, has discovered an unknown Land. This Ship was then in the South Latitude of 54 Degrees 48 Minutes, and coasted about that Land twenty- five or thirty Days, which appeared to the Crew of so prodigious a Height that, in clear Weather, they could see it at the Distance of sixty Leagues. According to Letters from Brest, abundance of Cannon, Mortars, Bombs, and other warlike Stores, continually passed by St. Brieux and Guingamp, going to that Port. It is said that the Army commanded by the Prince of Soubiee will shortly march towards Germany. Paris, Dec. It is rumour'd that an Extraordinary Nuncio is arrived to support the Pope's Brief relating to our Ecclesiastical Disputes, and to demand that it may have the Force of a Decision of the Church. It is also reported that a Foreign Nobleman is arriVed in Town with Proposals for concluding a Peace. A young Gentleman has been taken up for robbing on the Highway near this City. Upon Conviction and his own Confession he was condemned to be broke upon the Wheel ; but as this young Person appears to be one of Distinction, an Officer of Foot, and related to several of the Nobility, his Affair is referred to the Parliament. COUNTRY NEWS. Newcastle, Dec. 11. Last Week Lady Crawley, Pro. ptietor of the Iron Manufactory at Swalwell near this Place, sent down an Order to the Steward to buy up Corn at the Market Price, and to furnish all the Manufacturers there, amuanting to several Hundreds, with Ten Pounds Weight of Corn, she paying the Bakers' Wages, and furnishing Fuel at the same Time. A noble Pattern: T'he Gentlemen and Tradesmen in Penrith have open'd a Subscription for the Relief of the Poor in that Parish, and upwards of one hundred and fifty Families, in Pro- portion to their Number and several Exigencies, received their Quota's of Corn last Monday, which will be con- tinued every Week, at least for three or four Months. We hear from Bernard- Castle, that many of the Inha- bitants have been afflicted with a Fever, attended with different Symptoms, some of them of the malignant Sort, but is now partly abated. The Poor must have suffered greatly through Want, ( a natural Concomitant to Sickness) had they not been relieved in their necessitous Condition by the benevolent and unexemplified Charity of George Bowes, Esq; of Streatlam Castle, who ordered Medicines, Provisions, & c. to be distributed, at his Expence, among the Sick. Bath, Dec. 13. A few Days fince Farmer Smith, of Bathwick, had a Chest broke open, and eleven Guineas and a Half- Crown, in a Silk Purse, were taken away. The Week before he luckily had paid his Rent, which Was upwards of One Hundred Pounds. The Rogue, who was a Journeyman Carpenter, finding himself suspected, sent the Money back again, all but the Half- Crown, and made off. Saturday se'nnight a File of Musketeers having brought a Deserter into Froom, after delivering him to the Guard, two of them left their loaded Pieces at the Door of a Publick House ( one had taken the Prime out of the Pan, but the other had not) ; and two young Recruits taking up the Pieces to practise with, presented at each other, and snapping the Pieces, he who had the primed one blew out the other's Brains. Chatham, Dec 14. The Deptford and Intrepide are both come to this Harbour, the former to be paid off and laid up, and the latter to be refitted for Sea ; the Men are to be turn'd over to the Union, where they will be paid most Part of their Wages due in their respective Ships. Rochester, Dec. 15. Last Week died, advanced in Years, Edmund Strange, Esq; of this City, a Rear Admiral on Half pay. The Parish Officers being now furnish'd with Press War. rants, Numbers of loose idle Persons are taken up, and those fit for the Sea Service are sent on boird the Men of War at Chatham, and those more fit to handle a Musket, are secured for the present, till they can be properly dis- posed of. The Hon. Capt. Bruce is elected Member of Parlia- ment for Great Bedwin, in Wilts, in the room of Wil- liam Sloper, Esq appointed a Lord of Trade and Plan- tations. Lord Duncannon is elected Member of Parliament for Harwich, in the room of John Philipson, Esq; deceased. —— Townshend, Esq; is elected Member of Parlia- ment for Yarmouth. Ryder, Esq Son of the late Lord Chief Justice Ryder, is elected Member for Tiverton, in Devonshire, in the room of William Ryder, Esq; who has accepted of a Place. On Wednesday last came on the Election for the City of Bath, when their old very worthy Member was unani- mously re elected John Pitt, Esq; Surveyor of his Majesty's Woods, is re elected Member for Dorchester. The Right Hon. Richard Edgecumbe, Esq; Comptroller Of his Majesty's Houshold, for Penryn. And Sir Richard Lyttelton, Master of the Jewel Office, for Poole. The Officers and Matrosses belonging to the Train of Artillery taken at Oswego, are arrived, and joined their Corps. We are assured by an Officer who was taken by the French in the Fort of Oswego, in North America, that the Number of Forces in the Garrison amounted not to 3oo Men ; that they wanted Cannon, and almost every Kind of Stores and Provisions; that the Number of French Regulars that attacked it were upwards of 2000 strong, and about the same Number of Indians, with a considera- ble Train of Artillery. He further informs us, that the Garrison had like to have been put to the Sword, some of the Gunners discharging a Cannon just as the Fort sur. render'd, being ignorant thereof at the Time, and which did some Damage to the Enemy. The East- India Company intend to keep a strong Gar- rison in the Fort lately taken from Angria, the Malabar Pirate : By this Conquest the Company have got rid of a very troublesome and dangerous Neighbour j for in Ja- nuary 1730 he took one of their Ships call'd the Bengal, richly laden, after a stout Resistance and on the 23d of October, 1737, their Ship the Derby, Capt. Anselm, worth 90,000 I, was shamefully surrender'd without Re- sistance 1 besides which, at another Time he also took the Restoration, one of the Company's Ships. Some Men of War will shortly sail for Hallifax to re- lieve the Squadron upon that Station, and will also take with them some Soldiers for that Place. It is reported, that Part, if not all the Brest Fleet is sailed, and that Admiral Knowles's Fleet is gone in quest of them. For, The 1st Instant the Antelope Privateer spoke with Ad- miral Knowles in the Bay, and inform'd him, that the preceding Day he saw two 74 Gun Ships and a Frigate, which were just come out of Brest; upon which the Ad- miral steer'd immediately in quest of them, and ' tis hoped he may come up with them. Last Week was distributed, to Two Hundred of the Poor of Tamworth, a considerable Quantity of Corn and Cheese ; issuing from the Rents and Profits of an Estate given to the said Borough of Tamworth, by the Right Hon. the late Earl of Northampton; which came very sea- sonably, as Corn and Cheese being dear, and the Woollen Manufacture, in the said Town, very bad, Work scarce, and the Poor greatly in Want. A few Days since Mr. Taylor, Oculist, in Hatton Garden, received a Letter from his Father from Padua, mentioning his being there in his Way to Turky. On Tuesday Morning last, when the Servants at the Thatched House, Islington, went to open the Gates lead- ing into the Yard of the said House, they found a Man lying on the Ground in the Middle of the Yard, seemingly dead, but on turning him over he was found to be alive ; and on being asked how he came there, and what was the Matter with him, he said he deserved it, for that be had got over the Gates, about Three in the Morning, with Intention to rob the House or tne Yard, but had been immediately seized and torn down by the Dog, and was miserably torn in the Groin and the Belly, and had been left by the Dog for dead. The Man is since gone to Prison, and is under proper Care. LONDON. [ Thursday, Dec. 16. We hear that 55000 Men will be employed in the Sea- Service for the Year 1757. was calm, otherwise, in all Probability, that Quarter of the Town would have been consumed, together with all the Ships in the Old Dock. Last Saturday, as two Constables were searching the Publick Houses in St. James's Street, for such Fellows as were proper for his Majesty's Service, in coming out of one, contiguous to the grand Receptacle of Sharpers [ late While's, now Arthur's] at the Door of which stood two Footmen, one a Swiss, the other a Frenchman, who be- long'd to a Chariot which was waiting there, and which a few Months since drove from that House with a new Ma- ster, as mentioned in this Paper, laughed at the Peace Officers as they passed them, faying, De English no love Fighting, derefore keep out of de Way ; on hearing which, one of the Condables said to the other, This Fellow is a Swiss, and Fighting is his Profession, and therefore fit to serve his Majesty as a Soldier; the other being a French- man, shall go on board a Man of War, he will do for a Powder Monkey 1 the Rascals eat the Bread of better Men here, therefore let these be sent to fight the Blacks And so carried them off, to the great Joy of the Knights of the Rainbow there present.

Last Week as a labouring Man was digging near the late Duke of Wharton's, at Wooburn, in Buckingham- shire, he discovered a large Parcel of Broad Pieces, and not knowing what they were, sold most of them for a Penny a- piece Upon examining them they proved to be Gold, and worth about 14s. each. Last Sunday Night died, at his House at Newmarket, after a lingering Illness, Mr George Tuting, well known to the Nobility and Gentry at that Place; many of whom he had served in the Capacity of a Running Groom : His Loss is sincerely lamented by all that knew him; for he was truly an honest Man. A few Days since died in the Fleet- Prison, Theodore, Baron Newhoff, who some Years since was crowned King of Corsica, in that Island. Considerable Damage wis done to the Small Craft in the River by the Violence of the Wind last Night ar. tl this Morning. Informations have been- laid within these few Days against some Bakers, for Deficiency in their Weight < f Bread. We hear that the Printer of the spurious Speeches, sold for the King's Speech, is fined 501. and ordered to be im prisoned six Months in Newgate. The Horse the Footpad that robb'd the Worcester Mail last Sunday Morning took from the Boy, was found the same Morning at Hyde Park Corner. The Rev.

Friday se'nnight a most dreadful Fire broke out in Mr. Ford's ( a Tallow Chandler's) Work- shop, near the Dock, Liverpool, which entirely consumed the same, together with eighty Boxes of Mould Candles, one Hogshead of Tallow, and all the Utensils, Moulds, Pans, & c and about 90I. worth of Window Glass which was lodged in the Warehouse above it. Luckily it happen'd that the Wind A Ship from Jamaica, Name unknown, with 30o Hogsheads of Sugar and 60 Puncheons of Rum, is taken by the Rose Privateer, of St. John de Luz, and into St. Andero. The French Privateer that chased the Princess Louisa, Groves, into Stutland- Bay, is taken by the Otter Sloop and brought into Portsmouth.

Extract of a letter from an English Prisoner at Port St. Pierre's, Martinico, dated Oct. 1 " There is no News here worth mentioning ; but that the Hurricane, has done great Damage to this Island, se- veral Houses on the East Side being blown down, and whole Pieces of Sugar Canes torn up by the Roots. There are several Vessels cast away, in particular, two large Pri- vateers, with three hundred Men onboard, are lost, and only one Man out of the Crews saved. The French com- pute their whole Loss of Men, in this Hurricane, to be fourteen-- hundred, " There are above two hundred. English Prisoners in this Island, and the most Part in a miserable Condition, through Scarcity of Provisions, bad Usage, Unhealthi- ness of the Place, and the Weight of their Iron's; so that if a Flag of Truee does not soon arrive, they must cer- tainly perish. The Commanders of the English Vessels have been kept in Gaol till within these two Days past, when they were set at Liberty on their Parole, after se- veral Petitions; and they are allowed a Mouthful of Pro- visions per Diem to subsist on. " There are about thirty Privateers fitted out of this Island only already, and sailed ; but they have not for these three Weeks past brought in a Prize, SUNDAY'S and MONDAY'S POSTS. Arriv'd the MAIL from Flanders. ROME, November SEVERAL English Noblemen and Gentlemen arrived here last Monday from Tuscany, and the Number of English who are now here with a Design to spend the Car- naval, is very Considerable. " Tis Pity they can't tell how to employ their Time better at Homei in this important Conjuncture. Paris, Dec 3. To prevent the general Catastrophe of private Quarrels and Animosities, of which we have had lately. several shocking and bloody Instances, his Majesty has forbid the wearing of Swords, unless under particular Injunctions. PLANTATION NEWS Charles- Town, South Carolina, Oct. 2.

His Majesty, duly sensible ( With the wise King Solo- mon) that the Race is not to the Swift, nor the Battle to the Strong, hath ordered Friday the 11th of February next to be observed as a Day of Fasting and Prayer to pro- pitiate the supreme Ruler of the Universe. And the Right Hon. the House of Peers have ordered the Lord Bishop of Bangor to Remind them of their Duty on that solemn Occasion. The Preamble to the Proclamation for a General Fast runs thus: ' GEORGE R. * We, taking into our most serious Consideration the ' just and necessary War in which we are engaged with « the French King, and putting our Trust in Almighty • God, that he will vouchsafe a special Blessing on our • Arms both by Sea and Land, have resolved, and do, by and with the Advice of our Privy Council, hereby command, that a Publick Fast and Humiliation be ob served. & c.'

William Pitt, Esq; now Secretary of State; William Sharpe, Esq; is elected Member of Parliament for Callington, in- Comwall, in the room of John Sharpe, Esq; his Father, deceas'd. We hear that a Gentleman of great Distinction de- clared this Week at a Coffee House near St James's, that he designed to discharge, all his Footmen but one.; and that in order to expedite the raising Men for the Service of the Kingdom at this Crisis, he would give each of them Five Gukeas that would enter into it directly,, The East India Company have appointed the Sale of their Piece- Goods for the 1st of February next. From Winchester we are inform'd, that in that Neigh- bourhood, though the Hessians are not quarter'd in Pub- lick Houses, yet the Good nature of our Countrymen is such that they receive many Refreshments from well disposed Persons, land their Lives are made as easy and comfortable to them as the Season of the Year and their Situation, will admit Of. , 1 . We hear that a Proposal for a general Axt of Indem- nity has been moved by some Persons, but met with such Opposition, that their Scheme herein will prove abortive. We hear that an Express arrived from Jamaica gives an Account, that that Island remained unmolested, but in order to guard against the worst, was fortifying very strongly. . It is confidently said, that the Protestant Princes are entering into a League to oppose, to the utmost of their Power, that oppressive and flagitious one, of the Roman Catholick's. Last Week William Wrightson, of Cusworth, Esq; near Doncaster, in Yorkshire, distributed amongst his poor Neighbours a fat Ox,, near 80 Stone Weight,, also above ten Loads of Wheat.

From Swindon, in Wiltshire, we are inform'd, that one Day. this Week a tragical Affair happened between a Party of Soldiers who were beating up for Recruits : One of them having some Words with a Townsman, fell upon and beat him in an unmerciful Manner; and, not content with this, another Soldier drew his Sword, swear ing he would kill any one who came to the Assistance of the poor Fellow ; on which a bloody Battle ( as they ex- press it) ensued between the Soldiers and some young Men of the Town, and many were cut and wounded on both Sides; but in the End the Townsmen got the Victory, and two of the Soldiers are much wounded, one of whom ' tis thought will not recover. ' Yesterday Morning about One o'Clock, a Gentleman's Coachman driving a Pair of Horses with a Coach into an Inn Yard in Eagle Street, by Red Lion Square, he not as usual stooping his Head, his Brains were dashed out, and his Neck was also dislocated by coming against the Beam of the Gateway. .

Arriv'd a MAILfrom HOLLAND. - Constantinople, November 2. ' THE Pestilance has at last entirely ceased In this Me- tropolis. The High Treasurer of the Empire is deposed and sent into exile, but we know not the Cause of his Disgrace. ' f Hamburgh, Dec. 7. From the Dispositions lately made by the Prussian Troops distributed towards the Frontiers,, of Courland-, there is room to' suppose that they may ere long penetrate into that Dutchy, which has but few Rus- sian Troops in it at present. Mentz, Dec. 7. This Day the Elector our Sovereign performed the Ceremony of Blessing the Standards and Colours destined for the Troops which his Electoral High- ness sends to the Assistance of the Empress Queen. Toulon, 7.' The Hercules of 64 Guns, and two Frigates of 26 and Guns, will set sail for Mahon the 29th Instant, if the Wind sets fair. * Toulon, Nov. 28. A Vessel belonging to St. Tropez, which happened to be at Tunis at the Time that Town was ransack'd, was obliged to transport Troops to Algiers, where the Dey, Far from permitting her to return to France, order'd the Rudder to be taken off, and threa- tened to put the Captain and Crew in Irons. But this is nothing, compar'd with the Indignities and ill Usage practis'd by the barbarous Conquerors of Tunis to Fo- reigners ; they plunder'd the French and Spanish Churches, whose Fathers they put in Chains. The French Consul continues in. Irons. An Officer of Justice even threatened him to chain his Feet together, if he refus'd to comply with certain Proposals made to him. All the French Merchants are confin'd in the Consul's House, and appre- hend every Moment that they shall share the same Fate with him. Brussels, Dec. 17.

The Foreign Troops now in this Kingdom ( which it is said were brought over for the Defence thereof) are to be quarter'd, and receiv'd and provided for in Quarters, in every Respect, and in the same Manner to all Intents and Purposes, as the British Troops are.

He seems to have a great Value for the Country Post Matters, having put off several Bills by way of Change for Chaise Hire, &- c. He assumes the Air of Grandeur, and is very generous to his Postilions and to the Ostlers, who conduct him into his Vehicle. The Title of Captain, Your Honour,— or, May it please Tour Honour, was bestow'd on him at every Stage. His Cockade and Silver buckled Garters, added to his genteel Behaviour, commanded this great Respect.

" We are now returned into this Harbour from our Cruize, during which we have picked up three or four small French Ships laden with Wine, & c. but what will, I hope, crown our Work, and be of the greatest Service to our Country, it the taking a French Ship bound from Rochelle to Louisbourg with Provisions, Stores, & c. She is a fine Ship, and the only one, as the Captain tells us, that ever the French King was on board of: She mounts 36 Guns, and I can assure you behaved very well. We fell in with her in the Evening, and came within Gun- Shot about Ten at Night, when she continued firing fast as she could load till after Midnight. We haled them and told ' em it would be only wasting Powder and Shot, as well at their Men's Lives, as we were a King's Ship of 74 Guns; to which they returned an Answer little better than, Kiss my We returned the Compliment with a Broadside, which so chastis'd his Insolence that he soon struck, and we have brought him safe into Port. " P. S. Tis a vulgar Error, that a Frenchman's Tongue can never lie still; for we hope for once we shall have a pleasing convincing Proof to the contrary, as we have good Reason to think she has near twenty Chests of Money on board." To the PRINTER, & c. In June, 1755, I was seized, in Jamaica, with a Bilious Fever, ( a Disorder very common in that Island,) and in a few Hours was delirious; they bled me and gave me a Vomit, but roy Fever continuing very high, I took Dr. James's Powder, ( that is sold at Mr. Newbery's in St. Paul's Church- Yard) one Dose of which vomited and purged me pretty much, and then sweat me profusely, after which i slept some Hours, and the Fever entirely left me. I thought it was prudent, however, to take a Dose or two of Bark, which I did, and soon recovered my Strength. My Carpenter, James Caseburn, was, in our Passage home, taken with a Fever, which threw him into strong Convulsions, so that his Arms, Legs, and Body were contracted or distorted to a very great Degree, and every one in the Ship gave him over for lost but, upon taking two Doses of tbe Powders, which worked him pretty much, he perfectly recovered.
