No 2488 WEEKS this Journal ? 0 £ has been publish- d. $ From the Westminster Journal. To Simon GENTLETOUCH, Esq; of Pall Mall. GREAT Contests in a Grand Assembly at your End of the Town, ' Squire Gen- tletouch, are still continued, where honest Integrity, with much ado, holds the better of it; though, it is thought, he would carry it with a high Hand, was not an old lurking Fox. with a hundred or two of his Cubs, continually p--- sing upon their Tails, and dashing them into his Eyes. H. B— The old hubble- bubble mangey Mastiff, who is Centinel to a First Rate Nobleman, still keeps in Alliance with the Fox and his Cubs. Well ! but ' Squire Gentletouch — there is more than a rumour which goes flying about, relative to you and other the Fraternity of Quill- driving Intelligencers; and which is, that every Letter which you exhibit to the Publeck shall pay a Duty to his Majesty; every News- Paper shall pay the Double ot what it now pays, either with respect to itself as a News- Paper, or of the Adver tisements it contains; and this, notwithstanding his Ma- jestly has more than ONE HALF ot the Profits already. This is not to be Call'd taking away tbe Liberty of the Press ! No! that is a harsh Expression, And tis to oe look'd upon as a Stroke of Retaliation only, a making of those contribute, severely contribute, to the Supportt of be Pubick- weal, who have so often shewn Ways and Means whereby others might do so The Plea, that this will be of no * Advantage to the Revenue, seeing that many Private People will drop their taking- in News Papers, that Coffee Houses, & c. will take but Half their present Numbers, and that the Country will be content to be kept in Ignorance; this Plea, I say, will not avail ; and how should it amongst those who have given several Instances that they would run the Hazard of putting out both their own Eyes, so as they might but have the Pleasure of putting out one of the eyes of their Neighbour ? You and the rest of your Brother Prattlers may talk Old Leaven and of New Leaven ; but myself and my Uncle Snap Dragon, and many more, insist upon it, that Leaven is aliKe, where Schemes arc invented destruc- tive to Trade, or by any Means detrimental to the Com- unity ——— And we moreover are Of Opinion, that all such Schemes will be in Vogue till the Members which constitute the Old Leaven are dissolved ; and alter that so, unless Bribery and Corruption are entirely laid aside. and the people permitted to make free aud voluntary choice of a new set of SNAP- DRAGOn the Younger. * See our last Journal. FRIDAY'S and SATURDAY'S POSTS. LEGHORN, February 25. S1NCE Capt. Fortunatus Wright put into Malta to repair the Damage that was done to his Ship in an engagement with a French Frigate, he has wrote to Mr. Tatem, the English Consul at Messina, complaining of The ill Usage he has met with, in being refused the As- sistance he required. He attributes this to the Insinuations the French, who accuse him of Pyracy, and of giving refuge to two Slaves, who escaped from Malta; under which Pretence his Ship is detained there, and he is re- ced to great Distress for Want of Provihons, no body ing permitted to furnish him with any. The Captain has no Resource left but from the Success of the Repre- sentations which he hopes Capt. Burnaby may make in i Favour, who is soon expected at Malta with the rsey Man of War. PLANTATION NEWS. Letter from New York, Feb 3. " Since my last the Fifty- Gun Ship and five more transports are arrived : The Twenty- Gun Ship and ven more Transports are yet wanting. God grant they may come safe; for with these, and the Fleets that are Iexpected from England in April or May next, we hope a new Turn will be given to our Affairs, and some better success attend our Arms. The People here flatter them- selves that some important Blow will be sluck next Sum- it. Wheat and Flour advance daily, by the large Or- ders from Ireland and Liverpool. All our Ships are now taken up for that Purpose, though our Markets are much higher than in Maryland." COUNTRY NEWS. ISherborne, March 21. Friday last was committed to eter Gaol William Townshend, for the Murder of his ither, by beating him on the Head with a Stick. On Tuesday were executed at Fisherton Gallows, Ber- nardo Varda and John Phillips, for a Robbery on the highway, and Daniel Swanborough, for House- breaking. they went to the Place of Execution dress'd in their Shrouds. Varda, a genteel young Fellow, about 22 j Years of Age, an Italian, died a Roman Catholick, and behaved with a remarkable Air of Composure to the last : He had a fine Head of Hair, which in general he wore platted, but upon this Occasion it was curled, hung loose over his Shoulders, and was powdered to Excess. They neither of them at the Place of Execution deny'd, or so much as endeavoured to palliate the Crimes for which they suffered. Varda, whom Phillips had just taken his final Leave of with a Kiss, a few Minutes before the Cart drew away; addressed himself to the Spectators, but with a low Voice, and begged them to take Notice of his wretched End, and to let it be a Warning to all, espe- cially those who are wickedly inclined, to shun his un- happy Fate.

Westminst. Journal. It is said, that upon the Appearance of a great Man at a certain Place, some young Blades sneeringly called for Room to be made for the Head of the M--——— y ; which he retorted, after a stern Look about him, saying, " It is well the present M y have a Head, it is " somewhat plain the late had none." Westm Journ. His Grace the Duke of Leeds was on Saturday, by the King's Command, sworn of his Majesty's Most Hon Privy Council, and took his Place at the Board acordingly. The following Promotions in the Church are expected to take Place. His Grace the Archbishop of York will succeed the late Archbishop ot Canterbury; the Bishop of Salisbury will be removed to York ; the Bishop of Peterborough to Salisbury ; and the Rev. Dr. Terrick will be appointed Bishop of Peterborough. Ii is said, that Dr. John Taylor, Chancellor of Lin- coln, will iuccecd Dr. Terrick, as a Canon Residentiary of St. Paul's. It is with no small Satisfaction we find that some pub- lick spirited Ladies have opened a Subscription at Sir Charles Asgill's, in Lombard Street, and Miss Drum- mond's at charing Cross, to fit out three Privateers to cruize in Concert againslthe French, one of which is to mount 40 Carriage- Guns on one Deck, 28 of them to be 18 Pounders, the other 12 to be 9 Pounders, with up wards of 300 Men, besides Marines. The Ship intended for this Service is a 60 Gun Ship, and is to be cut down. The Dolphin Packet Boat, Capt. Cockrill, bound from Helvoet to Harwich, was taken and carried into Calais the 20th lnstant by a French Privateer Snow of 14 Guns and 130 Men, call'd the General Lally, Pierre Sauve, Commander, belonging to Boulogn. The Mail was thrown overboard. We hear she had on board 12,600 1. in Specie, and near the Value of 20,0001. in Diamonds. Yesterday Advice came, that six Ships had been blown out of the Swin. one of which, it is said, was the Dover's Prize ; but we hear she is safe in Leigh Road, opposite Sheerness. The other Ships it's feared are lost, as they have not been heard of, or are supposed to have drove on the Coast of Holland, and Tenders have been sent after them. The Ship of Robert Mitchell, bound from Rotterdam to Corke, is taken and carried into Boulogne. A Ship from Rotterdam for Dublin is taken and car- ried into Calais. Capt. Gilchrist, who was lately appointed to the Com- mand of the Lizard Man of War, is, we hear, to have the Command ot the Dublin, ot 74 Guns, which is to be launched the first Week in May. „ Letters from Lisbon bring an Account that a violent Shock of an Earthquake was felt there on the 1st of this Month ' Tis said the King of Prussia has marched his Army in three Columns into Bohemia, in order to execute some important Enterprize. We hear from Nunney, near Frome, that on Monday last a Boy who was keeping Sheep in a Field having made a Fire to warm himself, the Wind blew some of the Sparks into a Wheat Mow and Oat Mow near a Barn, in which were several Bushels of Grain ready threshed, and unfortunately set them all on Fire, by which both the Mows, the Barn, Grain, & c. were entirely destroyed. Sunday Morning died in Hill Street, Berkeley Square, the Lady of the Hon. Robert Herbert, Esq; Uncle to the Earl of Pembroke, and Member of Parliament for Wilton.

The Rivers, which were frozen over, are now thaw'd, and the Fortress of Memel is so well fortified that ' tis thought the Russians will not care to attack it. Our Hussars are advanced above a League beyond the Frontiers, without perceiving any Enemy. The Stages still pass as usual between this City and Riga, but all Passengers are carefully examined at both Places. The War- Office, which was at Gum- binisch, has been transferr'd hither. Hanover, March 18. ' Tis computed here that the Number of Forces that are to oppose the King of Prussia this Year will amount to Four Hundred Thousand Men, exclusive of the French ; viz.

An Independent Company of French Troops arrived at Nuess Yesterday. The Van Guard of the Grand Army will enter the Country of Ju- liers next Saturday. The Garrison of Wesel marched out Yesterday, and took the Road to Lunen. At Mun ster they are preparing against a Surprize ; the Governor his made the necessary Dispositions at Veche and Mespe- len, and taken an Account of all those who are able to bear Arms. IRELAND. Dublin, March 26. Last Saturday Mr. Maquay's Sugar- House, in Thomas- Street, was burnt down. The Loss is Computed at 5840 1. 16 s. By a Letter from Inniskilling we have the following Account of two Murders committed at Augher, near that Town, about ten Days ago; One Loudon, a Farmer, who lived in good Circumstances, having had Words with his Wife, who was big with Child, took a Handkerchief, and tied it about her Neck, strangled her, and then hung her up in his Kitchen Chimney. He afterwards, the bet- ter to hide his Villainy, tied his Feet to the Bed Posts, and likewise fastened his Hands, pretending next Morn ing that Thieves came and robb'd him, and murdered his Wife. However, when her Funeral was over, some of her Friends had him secured on Suspicion of committing the FaCt; on which he begg'd Leave to shift himself, and and then ripp'd his Belly open with a Knife: A Clergy man being present, and seeing he had not touched the Cawl of his Guts, said he might recover, upon which the wicked Monster put his Hand into his Belly, tore out his Guts, and instantly expired, confessing the Fact. Packenham Hall, in the County of West Meeth, March 25 Last Sunday Night some Villains broke into the House of Mr. Nangle, within two Miles of this Place. He was thought to be very rich ; they murder'd him, his Wife, ( big with Child) his Son, ( about four Years old) a Man and a Maid Servant, and afterwards set Fire to his House, Two Men and a Woman are taken up for the Crime. L O LON D O N. [ Saturday, April 2. From the LONDON GAZETTE. Whitehall, April 2. The Restitution of the Duc de Penthievre Prize, taken by the Antigallican Privateer, and Carried into Cadiz, having been demanded of the Court of Spain by the French, we hear that the said Ship, in Consequence of an Order from the Court of Madrid, re- mains a Deposit in the Hands of Spain, the Hatches be- ing sealed up, and under a Spanish Guard, in order to prevent all Embezzlement, until the Grounds of the said French Pretensions can be examined and judged. _ V The King has been pleased to order a Conge d'Elire to pass the Great Seal, empowering the Dean and Chapter of the Metropolitical Church of Canterbury to elect an Archbishop of that See, the same being void by the Death of the Most Rev. Father in God Dr. Thomas Herring, late Archbishop thereof) and also to order a Letter under his Royal Sign Manual, naming and recommending to the said Dean and Chapter the Most Rev. Father in God Dr. Matthew Hutton, Archbishop of York, to be by them elected to the said See of Canterbury. Windsor, March 30. Yesterday the Duke of Devon- shire, and the Earls of Carlisle, Northumberland, and Hertford, were installed Knights Companions of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, in the Chapel of St. George, with the accustomed Solemnities, by the Dukes of Marl- borough and Kingston, two of the Commissioners appointed by the Sovereign for that Purpose. A Procession was af- terwards made to the Upper Castle, where a noble Enter- tainment was provided in the Great Guard Chamber ; and at the second Course the Stiles of the new Knights were proclaimed by Garter King at Arms as usual. There was likewise a Table for the Ladies. The Night concluded with a Ball and Supper, and the Whole was conducted with great Order and Splendour. Thus far the L. Gaz. We are assured that some Schemes are under Considera tion to prevent the additional Duty on Stamps taking Place. It is said that the Patriotism of the Ladies of Quality at Westminster End of the Town, has excited a glorious Emulation in the Ladies of Fortune in the City, not to be outdone in Love to their King and Country ; for that an Association is proposed among them to fit out a Priva- teer in every Ward in the City, to cruize against the Ene- mies of Great Britain ; which Privateers are to be call'd by the Name of each Ward, and that the ( Alderman of each Ward is to be Agent and Manager for the Ladies within his District. If the like were done in every County in England by the Gentlemen of Fortune, we might then have as many Privateers as the French, which annoy our Trade more than their Men of War. Yesterday the following Bills Were passed by Commission, viz. the Bill for regulating the Woollen Manufactury ; the Bill to enable Charlies Lenox, Duke of Richmond, to make a Settlement on Lady Mary Bruce, his Wife ; the Bill for settling a Jointure on the Earl of Euston's Lady ; and eight publick and nine private Bills. Last Night was married, at her Mother's House in War- wick- Street, the Right Hon. Lady Mary Bruce, Sister to the present Earl of Aylesbury, to his Grace Charles Lenox Duke of Richmond. The Number of Forces provided for by Parliament last Year, was 34,263 effective Men, including 3,759 Invalids. This Year it amounts to 49,749, including 4,008.

There are now Thirty Privateers out of this Place, and Ten more on the Stocks, and launched. They have had hitherto good Success having brought in Four- teen Prizes, valued at 1oo, 0001." Letters from New- York give an Account that a ge- neral Embargo was laid upon the Shipping, on account of a private Expedition, which was speedily to be put in Execution. Lord Loudon's Army had been joined by a great Body of Provincial Troops, and they were about proceeding to Action with great Harmony. Letters from Leghorn advise, that the Syren Man of War at Genoa was, in Company With the Jersey Man of War, to convoy the Trade from thence to England ; and that Admiral Saunders, with his whole Squadron, Was to go in quest of that from Toulon. They write from Margate, that last Monday Night, about Eleven o'Clock, a French Lug- sail Privateer came close in the Land, off the Northforeland Light, and cut three Sloops away that were at Anchor close in by Broad Stairs, and carried them away. The Customhouse Boat of Broad- Stairs had but just put off from one of the Sloops. We must beg Leave to remark, that ever since the Beginning of last War eight Pieces of Ordnance have been placed upon the Cliff, but neither Engineer or Ammuni tion has yet been provided for the Defence of the Coast. A French Privateer, of 16 Guns, has taken four Col- liers off Scarborough, one of which had 20 Keel of Coals on Board j the other three were smaller Vessels: The Privateer was so daring, as to fire upon the Castle of Scarborough. Seven Privateers are now getting ready with all Speed at Bristol, and are to go in Concert; the Commodore's Ship it to mount 30 Guns of 18 Pounders each. Last Wednesday Night a Press Gang, with a Midship- man, went to the Spread Eagle Alehouse in Tooley Street, in order to impress some Carmen ; on which a Fray en sued, and in the Battle one Spencer, a Carman, was killed on the Spot, and some more were wounded, after which the Midshipman and the Gang made their Escape but on Enquiry, it being found that their Rendezvous was at the Horse and Groom in Lambeth Marsh, Application was made, they being desperate, to Justice Fielding, for a File of Soldiers, who, on his Worship's Desire. were sent from the Savoy to the above House, where the Mid- shipman and five of the Gang were taken into Custody ; and at One o'Clock on Thursday Morning ( Justice Ham- mand being called up) they were by his Worship commit- ted to the New Gaol, charged with being guilty of kil- ling the Deceased. Last Night, about Eleven o'Clock, a Man, who was at an Alehouse in George Yard, Holborn, bred a Riot, and was taken up by two Watchmen and carried to the Watch Houfe, where he soon afterwards drew out a Knife and stabb'd one of the Watchmen in the Temples, who died on the Spot, and cut the other across the Belly, so that his Life is despair'd of, and afterwards made his Escape. Last Wednesday Night, between Eight and Nine o' Clock, died at his House in Great Brook- Street, James Stewart, Esq; Admiral in Chief of the British Navy. Yesterday died at her House in Arundel Street in the Strand, in the 86th Year of her Age, Mrs. Anne Masters, Aunt to the late Adm. B.

The Colour is retailed at u. 3/ the Pint Bottle, ( which goes as far in Use as Two Pounds of Powder Blue], an smaller Bottles of it are sold at 6d. each. Please not 1 use it in the Copper, in boiling of Cloaths, as it answers perfectly well in the rinsing, without such Mixture in the hot Water; and be careful not to mix too much in Wa ter, which, when fit for Use for large Linnen, has no the Appearance of so deep a Colour as Stone Blue, c some other Sort, and when used for fine Muflins, Cambrick & c. the Colour can scarce be perceived in the Water three Drops in more than a Pint being sufficient to answer the Purpose; and indeed a Person can scarce err in the Use of it, but by mixing too much in Water, and making the Linnen, & c. too blue, which, notwithstanding, washes out at well as any other Sort. The great Advantage that will accrue to the Publick from the Use of this Co- modity, in a general Extent, are very conspicuous, when it is consider'd that every Family do use more or I Blue in washing of Linnens, & c. and this being afforded for less than Half the Price that other Sorts cost, wi occasion the saving of much Money to the Community and prevent an immense Sum being sent from Great Br tain to Foreign Parts, for Smalt, and other Ingredients for Blue- making. Whoever also uses this Liquid Blue, once cultivates his particular Interest, and promotes Good of his Country, by encouraging its Manufacture It is hoped, therefore, that all Families, Bleachers, & laying aside any Prejudice that may be conceived for new Inventions, will make Trial of this valuable and useful Commodity, and make Use of it according to its Merit. Any one Person in Town or Village adjacent where it is not already fixed, may be supplied with Quar tities for Sale, and have the same Allowance as from the Proprietor; and no Payment will be required till sold.

This Day came on the Trial of Francis Douglas, Esq; upon an Indictment on the Black ACt, for feloniously firing a Pistol at George Hawks- ley, with an Intent to kill him. The Prosecutor deposed, that on the 28th of January, about three o'Clock in the Afternoon, he was ordered, by his Master, Mr. Hayter, to pursue a Highwayman who had in their Sight just robbed Capt. Farrington near Sydenham, which he accordingly did, and fired at him. That on the 23d of February, as he was driving his Master over Blackheath, Mr. Hayter saw a Man at a Diftance whom he suspected to be the Highwayman, and ordered the Prosecutor to alight and pursue him ; and, upon his coming up with him, the High- wayman said to him, ' Damn you, you are the Villain • that fired at me the other Day, and now I'll blow your • Brains out:' Upon which he fired a Pistol at him, and the Balls went through his Hat. And swore positively that the Prifoner was the same Person whom he pursued on the 28th of February, and who fired at him on the 23d of February. The Prisoner, in his Defence, proved by a Number of Witnesses, who are Persons of Family and Fortune, that at the Time he was charged to have com- mitted the Robbery, he dined with them in Charles Street, St. James's Square, and was in their Company from two o'Clock till between Eleven and Twelve that Night; and having also proved by four Witnesses of undoubted Credit, that he was at Dinner with them on the 23d of February, about seven Miles from the Place where the Assault was committed, at the Time the Prosecutor swore the Prisoner shot at him, he called several Gentlemen of Rank and Re- putation to his CharaCter, from whose Evidence it appear'd, that the Prisoner is one of the Sons of the late Sir William Douglas, and a Gentleman of unblemished Honour, of a most amiable Disposition, and utterly incapable of com- mitting the Crime laid to his Charge ; whereupon he was immediately and honourably acquitted.
