BERROW'S Worcester Journal. [ Printed at his OFFICE, in Goose- Lane, near the Cross. ] Price Two- Pence. THURSDAY, March 10, 1757. N0 2484 FRIDAY'S and SATURDAY'S POSTS. Arrivd the MAILs from Flanders. BREST, January 31. ORDERS are come from Court to fit out three new Squadrons. M. Perrier de Salvert will command one; M. de Constans another ; and the third will be under M. de Foligny. We know nothing of the Destination of the two first ; but the third is to lie in the Road as a Squadron of Observation, like that of M. de Con- slans last Year. These three Squadrons will make toge- ther about thirty Sail. The Squadron commanded by M d'Ache, destined for the East Indies with the Company's Ships, will sail in about eight Days, notwithstanding the Reports that Ad- miral West has Orders to intercept them, and even to follow them to the Indies, in case he shall not fall in with them in their Route, and to remain afterwards in those Seas to protect the English Company's Settlements on the Coast of Coromandel. Paris, Feb. 21. The Princes and Peers of the King- dom assembled the Day before Yesterday, with the Mem- bers of the Grand Chamber and those of the Tournelle, in order to proceed to the Sentence of Robert- Francis Damien.' They sat from Eight in the Morning till Three in the Afternoon. The Regiments which form the First Division of the Troops destined for Westphalia are in Motion to repair to Givet, the Place of Rendezvous:. It consists of sixty Battalions and thirty Squadrons; but we don't yet cer- tainly know by whom it will be commanded. M. de Soto Major, the Spanish Ambassador, has been commissioned by his Britannick Majesty to compliment the King on his late happy Escape and Recovery. Some Traders on the Island of Minorca, in Conjunc- tion with the State Major of the Garrison, having fitted out some Vessels against the English, their Prizes in three Months have amounted to Twelve Hundred Thousand Livres; which has had such an Effect on the Inhabitants, that all their Thoughts and Pains are now employ'd in fitting out Privateers; and they hope in a few Weeks to have upwards of Fifteen, mounting from six to twenty Guns, ready to sail from the different Ports of that Island. COUNTRY NEWS. Newcastle, Feb. 26. On Sunday Evening thirty- eight Smugglers, belonging to the Isle of Man, were brought to Town from Carlisle, guarded by a Party of Lord Man- ner's Regiment. They were forced ashore near Annan, by Stress of Weather, on the zcth of January, and will shortly be sent on board one of his Majesty's Ships at Shields. Salisbury, Feb. 28. On Tuesday the Bodies of two Infants, a Male and a Female, supposed to be Twins, and but just born, were found in a very indecent Manner, without any Thing wrapped round them, thrust in under a Tomb Stone in the Cathedral Church Yard. They were first discovered by a Dog, who, in digging away the Earth from the Hole where they were put in, ex- posed one of them to publick View. In the Evening they were carried to the Belfrey, and both opened by Mr. John Tatum, Surgeon, and the usual Experiment was made of putting the Lungs in Water, in the Pre- sence of the Coroner's Inquest, to discover whether they were born alive or not, according to which they neither of them ever breath'd vital Air; and there appearing no Marks of Violence about them, the Jury brought in their Verdict Still- born. Warrants are since issued out, and strict Search is making after the Offenders. The same Day, about Three o'Clock in the Afternoon, William Read, the Pool Carrier, was attacked coming to Salisbury, on the Road near Nunton- Bushes, about five Miles off, by two Footpads , one of whom threw him down, and while the other held him, pick'd his Pocket of four Thirty- six Shilling Pieces, Ten Guineas, a Six nd Ninepence, and some Silver, ( Money that he was in- truded with to bring to several Persons here in Salisbury) nd then took off his Horses, a black Gelding, out of his Cart; and, after threatening to murder him, if he offer'd o pursue them, they made off with their Booty. LONDON. [ Thursday, March 3. A Print is privately sold at the Hague, which represents the Empress Queen in a Coach, the French King on the Coach Box, and the Elector of Saxony in a Polish Dress behind the Coach as a Footman. The Coach comes to Gate where the King of Prussia stands Centry. He asks he Queen, Whither she is driving? She answers. My Coachman will tell you. The Coachman says, I am driving her into a Slough. Then drive on, ( says the Centry ) Yesterday there was the fullest House of Lords that has been this Year. Their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cumberland were there to hear the Debates. The Right Hon. the House of Lords, after examining every Member of the Court Martial upon Oath Yester- day, unanimously rejected the Bill relating to Admiral Byng, and ordered their Proceedings upon it to be forth- with printed and published. Extract of a Letter from Portsmouth, March 1. " Admiral Byng received his Respite just in the same Manner as he did his Sentence." It is said that a Subscription will speedily be open'd at Lloyd's Coffce- House, to raise a Sum of Money for the purchasing of Julius Caesar's Ashes, lately discover'd at Rome, in order to administer them to all those who may hereafter be appointed Commander in Chief, not doubt- ing but they will prove as efficacious against the Malady of Cowardice or Neglect, as James's Powders are in * Fevers, & c. The first Regiment of Guards and two Regiments of Dragoons it is said, will embark this Spring for Weslpha lia, as Body Guards to his Royal Highness the Duke. Some Letters from Paris of the 18th past import, that in Case the War continued, the whole Militia of France would be raised for Defence of his Majesty and his Allies. Letters from Gibraltar of the 24th of Jan. make men- tion of the Fortune Sloop of War having taken two French Merchantmen up the Streights; but as she was bringing them down to Gibraltar, she was attacked by a Frigate or Privateer of 36 Guns, who took the two Prizes from her: And soon after the said Frigate fell in with the Syren Man of War of 2o Guns, with whom she had an obstinate Engagement, and attempted three Times to board her,; but the Syren had the good Luck to get clear off. It is no Wonder that Silver is so scarce with us, when it goes abroad for Luxuries; and if some Method be not found out to lower Teas, ! cc. within ourselves, the Gold will follow the Silver ; but it is hoped a speedy and effec- tual Method will be found out to cure this Evil. A French Man of War of 30 Guns and 28o Men was sent from Toulon to Malta, in quest of Capt. Fortunatus Wright, who in the Channel of Malta engaged the French- man, killed 130 of his Men, and obliged him to sheer off to refit at Malta. Extract of a Letter from Corunna, Jan. I. " This Day Orders came from the Spanish Court for the Releasement of a Ship called the N. S. del Carmen, Capt. Joseph del Torre, a Spanish Ship, bound from London to Seville, laden with Bale Goods, which was taken by a French Privateer, and carried into a small Port near Cape Finisterre. We hear from Wiltshire, that the Woolcombers and Clothiers of those Parts have risen, to the Number of Seven Thousand Men, and commit all the Mischief they possibly can, on those People where they have the least Suspicion of any Corn being lodged. There is a Com- pany of Soldiers gone down, in order to put a Stop to this riotous Proceeding. From the LONDON EVENING POST. To the AUTHOR, & c. For Justice, Britons! let us loudly call, Traitors must either bleed, or England fall, S I R, AL L Hopes of Mercy being now excluded from Mr. Byng, and his Fate irrevocably fix'd, let us desist from all further Disputes about the Inconsistency of the Sentence, and turn our Eyes upon Those who employ'd him ; upon Those who are, in the Opinion of the whole Nation, infinitely more culpable than He 1 upon Those who, tho' they certainly knew that the French intended to invade Minorca many Months before they carried it into Execution, yet neglected to send out a Fleet to pre- vent such Invasion ; upon Those, who knew that St. Phi- lip's Castle was to be besieged, and that had not Half a Garrison sufficient to defend itself, yet neglected to send it a timely and proper Reinforcement; upon Those, who knew that the French Fleet consisted of Twelve Ships of the Line, and yet sent only Ten against them, tho they had many more at that Time lying idle in Harbour; upon Those, who, by their Negligence, or worse, have occasioned the Loss of fuch a Multitude of our Fellow- Subjects Lives in America, and brought that inestimable Part of the British Dominions into the utmost Danger of being lost. Let us, I say, according to the numberless Addresses of the Nation, and general Voice of the Peo- ple, keep our Eyes stedfastly fix'd on these capital Offen- ders; and most humbly beseech his Royal Majesty, that They may now be call'd to a strict Account, and that Justice may proceed in its due Course, and be impartially executed on All who shall be found guilty. 1 am, Sir, your humble Servant, BRITANNICUS. WORCESTER, March 3, 1757. To the Hop- Planters, & c. AS no Regard has been paid to Two Several Advertisemems inferted in this Journal in January last, relating to Payment for the Housage of a Number of Old Hops, now at this Time in the Common Warehouse ; I take this Method to acquaint the Owners of such Hops, if Payment be not made for the Housage before the First of May next, they will be appraiz'd and sold, as the Law directs. HENRY SMITH, Warehouse Keeper. N. B. There are Old Hops that have been in the Ware- house from Six Years to One. This Month will be Publish'd, A COMPLEAT HISTORY of ENGLAND. Extract from the PLAN. THE Author's Aim is to retrench the Superfluities of his Predecessors, and to present the Publick with a succinct, candid, and complete History of our own Coun- try, which will be more easy in the Purchase, more agree- able in the Perusal, and less burthensome to the Memory, than any work of the same Nature, - produced in these Kingdoms. After a distinct Detail of Casfar's Descent, the Progress of the Roman Arms in England under successive Emperors, the Formation of the Province, their Improvements in the civil Policy of the Country, the gradual Declension of their Power, and their final Retreat to the Continent; he proceeds to describe the first Dawnings of the Christian Faith in Britain ; the Arrival, Settlement, Character, and Genius of the Saxon Adventurers; the Rise and Progress of our Constitution in Church and State; and the Changes it underwent in Consequence of the Norman Conquest. He mentions every material Tranfaction, whether of War or of Peace, whether publick or private, which might conduce to the Illustration of the Subject. He collects his Materials from the most authentick His- torians, to whose Works he refers in the Margin. He delineates the Characters of Princes, from the uniform Tenour of their publick Conduct, compared with striking Passages in private Life, which often exhibit the real, naked Picture, uncloaked with reserve, undisguised by Formality or Dissimulation. He records every remarkable Improvement in Arts and Sciences, which the World has owed to the Natives of this Kingdom. He exhibits a separate View of ecclesiastical Affairs, digested into distinct Periods, from the first Preaching of Christianity in Britain, to the latest Regulations of Church- Government. On the Whole, this Work is formed upon a Plan which was the Result of the most mature Deliberation ; and has one Advantage over all other Histories of England ; . namely, that of being brought home to our own Times and Observation, from the earliest Age of our historical Credit to the last Treaty of Aix la Chapelle, in 1748. The Work will be neatly printed, and contained in Three Volumes, in Quarto; with three Frontis- pieces, and a Map proper for the History. London: Printed for J. Rivington and J.

WE, the Court- Martial, now begin to sicken. And find, at length, that we are Conscience- stricken, Sad, Suppliants,— in B- g's Behalf we come, And humbly crave You would defer his Doom. Bound by our Oaths, we cannot yet make clear, What ' twas we meant nor ever shall, we fear. We found him Guilty, and we found him not: We wish'd him sav'd, yet wish'd him to be shot. But, as at Land, so did we find at Sea, If we did one, the other could not be. Spare him, Great Sir! your Royal Mercy show! Shoot him, Dread Sir! let Royal Justice flow! Relieve our Consciences with pitying Eye, And grant that B— g may neither Live nor Die. SUNDAY'S and MONDAY'S POSTS. BREST, February 26. TWO Persons are conducted hither from Nantz, where they were lately arrested on Suspicion of being employ'd at Spies. These two Persons, it is remark'd, have been seen at Orient, Morlaix, St. Malo, and other Places on the Coast, for two Months past, and on their Examination a Paper or two have been found on them, which give Reason to suppose them engaged in some traiterous Scheme of the utmost Consequence. LONDON, [ Saturday, March 5. The following Paper was given on Tuesday to many Gentlemen in the Streets of London, and left at many CofFee- Houses. To the worthy Merchants and Citizens of London. Gentlemen, MR. Byng has, in the most solemn Manner, been tried, convicted, and condemned, by a proper, legal Court- Martial. All the unprecedented Steps which have been taken to raise Doubts about the Sentence, have only confirmed it. The Twelve Judges have unanimously declared it to be a legal Sentence. When the Law has so positively determined this Neglect of Fighting to be a capital Crime, and we all now so fatally rue the Conse- quences of it, who can pretend to purge it of all Crimi nality? This is not a Contest between Minister and Mi- nister, but between an injured Nation and their Admiral, who has betray'd them. If other Men have been faulty as well as he, let them be tried, and punished when they are convicted. Is this a Time, when we are singly engaged in a most dangerous War, and our All is at Stake, to relax the Discipline of our Navy ? It matters not to us whether this Man or that is Minister. If our Ad- mirals and Colonels are to refuse to fight where their Duty calls them, this Nation is ruined ; and it will be too late to call them to an Account when the next shall run away from Plymouth, under Pretence of covering Portsmouth. His Majesty has been graciously pleased to promise us that he will not spare tbe Guilty ; and it is he only that can redress our Grievances. Tho' the Throne were beset by Advocates for the Criminal, yet his Ma- jesty's Ears are always open to the Cry of his People ; To him therefore let us petition for Justice, and the Execu- tion of a Sentence, upon which our very Being, as a Na- tion, may hereafter, very possibly, depend. The following Questions are said to have been put sepa rately to each Member of the C M , in a very august Assembly: 1. Whether they were any way biass'd, prior to the Trial of A B— g to which they all answered in the Negative. 2. Whether they thought the Sentence they had pass'd, a just one ? to which they answer'd in the Affirmative. 3. Whether any Thing appeared on his Trial sufficient to induce his Majesty to pardon him? to which ten an- swer'd in the Negative, and that he ought to suffer; but it is said that no direct Answer was given by A. N— C. K , nor C. M — . 4 Whether they were desirous that the Oath of Secresy should remain binding ? to which ten answer'd in the Af- firmative, and three in the Negative. A few Nights since a very seditious Paper was stuck up- on the Gate at St. James's, relating to the Execution of Admiral Byng. The following remarkable Advertisement made its Ap- pearance in the Whitehall Evening Post, viz.—" This " is to inform the Publick, That a merciful God will " ever engage on the Side, and maintain the Cause, of « ' merciful Men, & c & c. & c." It is said that one of the Officers of the Court- Martial, being asked by a Noble Lord, whether, if he was dis charged from his Oath of Secresy, he had any Thing to say which could have any Tendency to serve the Publick, or induce his Majesty to shew Mercy, answer'd in the Ne- gative; and at the same Time a brave Admiral said he had voted for Mr B ' s being shot, and would have done the same had he been his Brother. We hear more Money has been laid upon Admiral Byng's Affair, than is at present subscribed to the Guinea Lottery. Portsmouth. I send you, for a Fact, the following Anecdote relating to Mr. Byng. On Friday the 25th of February, the Admiral having, I believe, resigned him- self to his expected Fate as on the Monday following, ex- pressed himself to the principal Person who has the Care of him to the following Effect : Sir, as I am so unfortu- nate to be under the Censure of the Laws of my Country for not facing its Enemies ; yet as I do not know of any Law that obliges me to be kneeling and covered at the Time I may meet my Fate, I beg, if it can be granted, when- ever the awful Period arrives, that I may have Leave to sit in a Chair, uncovered, to face my Friends. Then judge you if I shrink. It is confidently said, that Enquiry will be made into the Conduct of three Gentlemen of Rank in the Army,- in Regard to Minorca. We hear that a large Reinforcement of Men of War will be sent to the Fleet at Gibraltar. The Fleets going for Gibraltar and the Mediterranean have received positive Orders for sailing by a certain Day, but the particular Time is prudently kept a Secret. It's assured proper Measures have been taken to have powerful Squadrons out early this Spring ; also for send- ing sufficient Reinforcements to different Stations, and to augment and repair the Navy. We hear several Fireships are ordered to be fitted out with all Expedition. Tis said that several short Men will soon be draughted out of the Guards, and formed into Companies. On Thursday Lord Charles Hay, Major- General of his Majesty's Forces in America under Lord Loudon, set out for Portsmouth, in order to embark for America. We hear that Lord Howe is going a Voluntier in the American Expedition, and set out for Portsmouth Yes terday. Also We hear that his Majesty, out of his Royal Bounty, has been pleased to grant a Pension of 2oo 1. a Year to Lieut. William Crow, who lost his Legs the 20th of May last, on board his Majesty's Ship the Lancaster, commanded by the Hon. George Edgcumbe, Esq; The very desirable Attempt, which was expected to be made this Sessions, to restore Triennial Parliaments, it is said, will be postponed to next Year. We hear that several important Posts will be disposed of when the Parliament rises, to those who have distinguish'd themselves as true Patriots Yesterday were shipped for New England lo. ooolb. of Gunpowder, and 938 Cwt of Lead and Lead Shot: Also 200 Pieces and 4000 Yards of British Linnen for Jamaica. A Letter from America informs us, that the publick Report there is, that instead of carrying on the War in the Back Provinces next Campaign, a Design is formed of providing in the Spring Vessels sufficient to transport a considerable Body of Men directly to the River St Law- rence ; and that it is the general Opinion of the Officers there, that one Campaign in this Way will make us Masters of Quebec, and, in Consequence, of all Canada ; whereas the present Manner of carrying on the War among thick Woods, where a single Indian can fire his Piece without Discovery, may linger on without Effect for many Years. The Matter of an English Ship, lately released from Bayonne for three Months, in order to be exchanged, de- clares that English Prisoners are used there more like Py- rates than Prisoners of War: He further says, that there are out of the said Port, at Sea, 40 Sail of Privateers, of 14, 16, 24, and 36 Guns and that they were building 20 more, from 20 to 36 Guns each, which will be ready to put to Sea in May next. Cap. Holme, of the Austin, a Ship belonging to Li- verpool, who was taken by the French and carried into Martinico, and has since been exchanged and returned home, reports, that during his Stay at Martinico, there was so great a Demand for Guns, that his two Carriage Guns. Three pounders, were sold for rool. That the French had then fitted out from that Island no less than 74 Privateers, but most of them of small Burthen. That Beef, & c. was exceeding dear, their chief Supply being from Eustatia, where several Vessels were lately arrived from Ireland ; but that Indian Corn was in great Plenty, owing to the great Number of North American Vessels taken. That the Number of Prizes taken by the Marti- nico Privateers is very considerable; and that just before he left the Island, a Privateer brought in the Schooner, Capt. Nichols, from Guiney, with Slaves, 4c. whose Cargo sold for 600I. Sterling. When Capt. Holme left Martinico, all the English Sailors in Health were sent off to be exchanged, Part to Antigua, and Part to Barba- does, at which last Place there were then about 300 French Prisoners— Capt. Holme brings also an Account of several Ships being arrived at Barbadoes, & c. who have brought 2077 Slaves from different Parts of Africa. They write from Cambletoun, in Scotland, that on the 17th past arrived at that Place the Seahorse, of Philadel phia, Francis Blair, Commander, in five Weeks from New York, bound for Newry. She spoke with the Sun- derland Man of War about sixty Leagues from New- York, who had parted with the Transports from Corke with O'Farrel's Regiment, & c. off the Western Islands in Gale of Wind. The Baltimore, one of these Transports, arrived at New- York eight Days before Captain Blair sailed, and had taken two Prizes in her Passage, one a Snow, most of her Cargo consisting of Indigo, and worth 30,0001. tbe other a Ship with Sugar. Lord Loudon and most of his Army were gone into Winter Quarters at New- York, and Sir William Johnson at Albany, all in good Health and high Spirits. Yesterday feveral Letters were received in Town from St. Kitt's, by Way of Bristol, dated Jan. 13, which give an Account that seven English Privateers sailed in Con- junction from the Island of St. Kitt's to St. Bartholomew Isle, fituated W. Long. 62. 5. Lat. 18. 6. and one of the Caribbee Islands in the Atlantick Ocean, 20 Miles N. of St. Christopher's, subject to the French, which they made themselves Masters of, together with the Forts, as also of three French Privateers that were in the Harbour. The French Governor was killed during the Fight ; and one of our Privateers blew up, and all the Crew perished. Last Wednesday Stephen Morris, the noted Running Man, started at Hampton Court for a considerable Sum of Money laid between two Noblemen. He was to run forty Miles in seven Hours, and had run thirty- eight in six Hours, when he fell down, and expired soon after. Extract of a Letter from Mr. Tatem, tbe British Consul at Messina, dated Jan. 19, 1757. " The King George, Capt. Fortunatus Wright, has lately had two smart Engagements in the Channel of Malta, of three Hours each, ( one in the Night, the other by Day) with the Hirondelle, a French Polacco of 26 Guns and 180 Men; but, notwithstanding the great In- equality, in Men, Guns, and Weight of Metal, yet Capt. Wright obliged him to sheer off, they both put into Malta the 2d of. January, to refit: But poor Wright has met with worse Treatment there than he did before, for tho' he had several Shot under Water, which made it absolutely neceffary to heave down, yet, by the Interest of the French Faction, he was denied that Liber- ty ; and afterwards, upon Account of two Slaves having taken Refuge on board him, he has been sequester'd in Port, and cut off from all daily Provisions, and even Water, ' till he restores them : But as the Jersey was hourly ex- pected in Malta, we hope Sir William Burnaby will ob- tain his Release. The Hirondelle is one of the Vessels fitted out from Toulon, expresly to seek him."

Wednesday s and Thursday s POSTS. LONDON. [ Tuesday, March 8. IT is said that Admiral Byng, in his present unhappy Situation, behaves in a truly decent and Christian like Manner, being quite compos'd and resign'd to the Will of Providence: His Mornings are spent in Acts of Devotion, having two Reverend Divines to assist him therein ; at Dinner he refreshes himself very moderately with a few of his Friends, and then retires to Meditation and Prayer; at Tea- Time he enjoys his Friends again, and withdraws till Supper, and, after eating very sparingly, retires to Bed. His Company are two Nephews and three Friends. There are 250 Marines on board the Ship in which Admiral Byng is confined, near half of them on Duty at a Time ; when Night comes on they double the Guard of the Stern Galleries, and every five Minutes call to one another, saying. All is well; and this holds till Morning. ' Tis now generally believed that he will be shot on Monday next. Another Number of Transports will shortly be taken into the Government's Pay. And, ' Tis said thct Lord Blakeney will soon go Abroad^ ' Admiral West, w, ith 14. Sail of the Line, was spoke with about zo Leagues off of Cape Finisterre. The Bounties for Seamen and able bodied Landmen are directed by his Majesty to be farther continued till the 12th Day of April. Tis said that a certain Court has had the Insolence to say to one of its Neighbours in the peremptory Stile, " Hitherto shalt thou go, and no farther." ' Tis talked on the Parade, that we are like to have a new Enemy to deal with. We hear a noble Duke, one of the Proprietors of the Duke of Cumberland Privateer, has declared that he will give all his Share of Prizes amongst such of the Company of the said Ship who shall behave well against the Enemy. We hear that the Swedish Consuls in the Ports of Spain, Italy, & c. have given Notice that all Ships of their Na- tion, of the Burthen of 400 Ton and upwards, actually in those Parts, must return home immediately, whether they have their Lading or not. So that it is conjectur'd some considerable Armament, or Embarkation of Troops, is to be made in Sweden this Spring. The Magistrates of Westminster have issued Orders to the Peace- Officers, to use their utmost Endeavours for de- tecting all Bakers and others, who presume, contrary to Act of Parliament, to mix Allum in their Bread, to make it look whiter than ordinary, it being judged prejudicial to Health ; and also to discover bad Weights of Bread by the Statute: It is Five Shillings Penalty. His Majesty has been pleased to appoint the Right Hon. the Earl of Home to be Sheriff of Berwick. On Tuesday last a melancholy Accident happened at Mr. Warman's, a creditable Farmer, at Saxlingham, near Norwich: A Lad about 14 Years of Age came to his House for Milk, and while Mr. Warman was gone to get it, he took up a Gun that Hood in a Corner of the Kitchen ( not knowing it was charged) presented it to Mr. War- man's Children, and it missed Fire the first Time, but cocking it again, it went off, and shot all three of them; the eldest ( about seven) had his Brains blown about the Kitchen; the other two ( one about a Year and a Half old, the other about four) are wounded in such a terrible Manner, that their Eyes are shot out, their Noses off, all their Teeth out, and their under Jaw- Bones shot off: They are still alive, but impossible to continue so long. Holyhead, feb. 28. On Friday last as John Hughes, a great Dealer in Horzes, was going to Beaumaris Market, about ten Miles from this Place, he saw a great Smoke come from under a Bush ; when he got to Market he told it to some other People, who went along with him next Day to the Place, and pulling away the Bush they faw a Chimney bricked on the Inside, and putting their Ears to it they heard People move about under Ground, and could hear them speak, but not distinctly ; they immediately came hither, and arming themselves, went to the Place again ; where, having watched for about an Hour, they saw a Trap- Door open, which had escaped their Notice before by being covered with Turf, and out of it came two Men, whom they seized, but none of them had the Cou- rage to enter the Cave; they brought those two Men hi- ther that Night, and next Day carried them before Mr. Justice Morgan ; the Account that they gave of themselves was this: ' That they belong'd to a Gang of Highway- men, who had inhabited that Place near 17 Years, and robbed on Boddedar Heath, and other Places in the Neighbourhood ; they said that their Comrades, who ' were five in Number, were gone to Ireland, to dispose ' of some valuable Goods; and that they two, being the • youngest of the Gang, were left at home ' Some Men are to go Tomorrow to search this Place, where it is ima- gined they will find fomething very valuable. These Robbers have been a great Nusance to all this Neighbour- hood, and they are making a Contribution to reward the Man who discovered them. On Saturday Night a Man was taken up in Cavendish- Street, on Suspicion of robbing the Western Mail fome Time since near Acton. On Saturday Night a young Lady dropped down dead as she was dancing at a reputable Ball at a certain Ta vern in the City. It so frightened the red of the Com- pany, that the Ball broke up immediately. Yesterday Morning died, advanced in Years, at his House in Hoxton, Mr. Henry Carrington, an eminent Exchange- Alley Broker, reputed to be worth 30,000 1. He was abroad but the Day before in seeming good Health. An English Ship with 1100 Barrels of Gunpowder is taken by the Prince Soubise Privateer. BANKRUPTS.

On Saturday next will be Commission- Day for holding the Assizes for this City and County, at which there are about twenty Prisoners to be tried. Last Thursday was committed to our City Gaol, one Henry Smith, alias Harry Dunn, who, the Night before, broke into the Dwelling Houfe of Sarah Burnell, in Inkle- Lane, and went up into her Bedchamber with a Hanger; but the Neighbourhood being presently alarmed by the Woman's crying out, the Fellow thought proper to make off, but was taken the next Morning. At the Assizes at Stafford, ( which ended last Friday Night) the Six following Persons were capitally convicted, and received Sentence of Death, viz. 1. Nathaniel Alman, for poisoning his Wife; 2. William Shipton, for stealing out of the Dwelling House of Mr. Smith, at Dunstall, up- wards of 72 Pounds in Money, ( as mentioned in our last Paper) ; 3. William Horobin, for Sheep stealing ; 4, 5, Thomas Pearciful and John Pagett, for robbing on the Highway; and, 6 Edmund Holt, for Horsestealing - It is said all of them were reprieved, except Alman and Pearcifull, the former of whom ( for Murder) was to be executed as on Monday last. Thomas Lee, con- demn'd laft Assizes, is to be tranfported for 14 Years; and the following for 7 Years, viz. Sarah Shaw, alias Mansfield, Mary Slack, Ann Larkin, Susannah Hastilow, Thomas Grey, Joseph Richards, Joseph Onions, George Choaten, John Edwards, and Thomas Markram. Sa- muel Shaw was burnt in the Left Hand for Manslaughter. Last Saturday se'nnight a Man was found dead in a Ditch, near Tibberton, in which was scarce any Water. — No Marks of Violence appear'd, nor was any Money found upon him, or any Thing whereby to discover who be was. On Saturday se'nnight died at Rolston, in the County of Stafford, aged 52, Sir Oswald Mofeley, Bart, whose Life was a continued Series of extensive Charities and Benevo- lence, and a heavenly Pattern of Humility; his Experience in Virtue was older than his Days, and his Judgment riper than his Years; in short, he had every Qualification requi- site to adorn so worthy a Patron, and grace a Gentleman j he liv'd universally belOv'd, and died lamented by all who knew him : He is succeeded in Title and Estate by his only Brother, now the Rev. Sir John- Moseley, Bart, by whom he is every Way equalled in Lenity and Goodness. The ingenious Mr Benjamin Martin has just published a Copper Plate Print, containing a View of the Orbit of the Comet, whose Return is now soon expected, with its proper Elevation above the Plane of the Ecliptic ; its Si- tuation and Length of its Tail for the Space of 145 Days; its Place in the Ecliptic, as viewed from the Earth and Sun, and its Distance measured in a Scale of 240 Millions of Miles, with all its Phaenomena for any Time of the Year it may appear, particularly its very near Approach to the Orbit of the Earth at its descending Node, which, if it should happen on the Twelfth of May, would involve the Earth in the densest and hottest Part of its blazing Tail. We are assured from Bristol, that two Ships, with 46.000 Bushels of very fine Wheat, are arrived at that Port from Spain, from whence Eleven Vessels more are expected every Tide ; and a great Number of Ships have like taken their Ladings of Wheat and Flour from New England to different Parts of Great Britain.
