BERROW's Worcester Journal. FRIDAY'S and SATURDAY'S POSTS. [ From the London Evening Post.] To the PEOPLE of ENGLAND, AS it is the Duty of every Individual, in a Commonwealth, to do is utmost for, and in Support of, the Whole; I cannot but offer my Thoughts to you on the present important Crisis of your Affairs. The shameful Loss of Mi- norca ; the total NegleCt of your Colo nies ; the unconstitutional Introduction of a foreign Army into the Kingdom ; the great Want of a proper Militia ; together with the intolerable Profusion of your Money in Subsidies to foreign Princes; in fruitless Parades at Home, and in many corrupt Measures subversive of your Consti- tution, having lately prevailed upon you to address his Sacred Majesty for an Enquiry into the Conduct of the late Administration; into the real Cause of the Loss of Minorca, and the distressed Situation of your Affairs; and his Majesty having been graciously pleased to promise you, that such Enquiry should be made, and Justice done on All, who should be found wanting in their Duty to Him and their Country ; and having also, in Consequence thereof, displaced those Persons you so justly complain'd of, and put the Management of your Affairs into the Hands of Gentlemen of the greatest Abilities, and strictest Integrity ; you were, no doubt, in great Expectation of seeing the Guilty Persons soon brought to Justice, and your distressed Circumstances relieved. And it is not to be denied, but that, in the short Space of Time the pre- sent Gentlemen have had the Management of your Af- fair , they have, considering the constant Opposition they have met with from the Creatures of the late Admi- nistration, done all that was possible for Men to do, and and greatly mended the Face of your Affairs. They have, according to your Desires, begun an Enquiry into the real Cause of the Loss of Minorca: They have taken the most proper and most vigorous Measures to support your Colonies, and to bring the War in America to a short and happy Issue: They sent away the foreign Army : They have procured a Bill to pass the Houfe of Commons for the Regulation of the Militia: They have begun a Saving in the Expences of Government, by vacating useless Of- fices: Nay, indeed, They have given a most glorious Proof of their Integrity and Zeal for your Service, by de- claring publickly, They were ready to serve you without any Pay or Salary at all. Your Navy never was so well paid, nor so properly employ'd, as now; and none but Men of Courage, and true Merit, have been, by Them, promoted to the Command of his Majesty's Ships. But, alas ! just as the Sun of Prosperity begins to dawn upon you and your Affairs; just as the Day of Enquiry is ap proaching in order to do Justice on Those, who have so grosly injured you, it is confidently reported, That your faithful, and Uncorrupt, Administrators are to be re moved The Reason for such Removal is said to be, Be- cause They are averse to Expeditions on the Continent yet, I apprehend, it is not the only one : May not the Dread of that Enquiry, which you have desired, be ano- ther? May not the Saving, which is begun by taking away useless Offices, and curtailing extravagant Salaries, have given an Alarm to the Creatures of the late corrupt Administration, and be also another Reason for such Re moval But though the Removal of the present most ex- cellent Administration is most confidently asserted ; yet 1 confess to you, I know not how to give it full Credit; not only because They have acted so greatly for your Interests ; but because I am at a Loss how to reconcile it with the Royal Promise. However, should such a fatal Change take Place, let me conjure you, not to suffer your Resentments to rise too high, nor exceed the Bounds of Obedience: But let humble Petitions, and Addresses, to the Throne, at once declare your Duty, your Grievances, and your Desires. 1 am your faithful Servant, BRITANNICUS. LONDON. [ Thursday, April 7 There are great Disquietudes and Murmurings in seve- ral Parts of the Town upon the Talk of a Change in the Ministry, which, some say, will be effected before his Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland is to set out - for Germany. In the Course of Sir William Temple's Negotiations at the Hague, in the Reign of Charles II. the Pensionary De Witt often complain'd to him, that the Counsels of England were so fluctuating, that it was impossible to act in Concert with our Crown, or to place any Dependance on it. But this is not to be wonder'd at; both the King and his Ministers had sold themselves to France. Lond. Ev. Post. We hear that the Court of Madrid have positively disowned, or disapproved, the Conduct of the Commander of their Bay, with regard to the Antigallican's Prize. . Whatever outside Shew the French and Spaniads may put on towards each other on particular Occasions, it is in ge nerally well known to such as have been both in France and Spain, that they bear to each other an inveterate and mor- tal Hatred. . This being Maundy Thursday, his Majesty's Bounty was distributed in Whitehall Chapel to a Number of poor Men and Women, in the following Manner : To each three Ells of Holland, a Piece of Woollen Cloth, a Pair of Shoes and Stockings, Twenty Shillings in a Purse, 74 Silver Pence, Two pences and Threepences, a Loaf, and a Platter of Fish. We hear a 20 Gun Ship is ordered to cruise between Helvoet and Harwich, to protect the Packet at this very critical Juncture. On Monday Night so great a Number of Men were im- pressed in the Liberty of Westminster, that upwards of forty were confined in Covent Garden Roundhouse. One of our Men of War has taken a French Ship bound to St. Domingo, and carried her into Barbadoes. A Privateer of New- York has taken a small French Privateer, and carried her into the said Island.* Last Night was interr'd in Covent Garden Church- Yard, Mrs. Stuckwell, ( commonly call'd Industrious Jenny) who for many Years kept a House for necessitous young Gentlemen in Bridges Street, and afterwards a spunging House in Drury Lane. Six eminent Bailiffs and Turnkeys held up the Pall, and as many of their Followers and Runners were Bearers, John Ketch, Esq; and the young Lady at the Green Cannister being chief Mourners. The Company were complimented with Mourning Rings in Lieu of Civility Money: Tho' many obnoxious Persons passed by during the Procession, not one of them uncloak'd even to fasten upon their Prey, which is justly esteem'd one of the most remarkable Incidents that has happened in our Times. On Monday were committed to Chelmsford Gaol, from Rumford, four Soldiers, for divers Robberies on the Hig- hway, upon the Oath and Confession of one of them, particularly the Robbery of the Farmer on the 16th of March last, near Rumford, of 115I. Part of which Money being given to some of their Wives, was the Means of their being discovered. An ACCOUNT of the Execution of Robert- Francis Damien, for stabbing the French King. ON Tuesday, the 29th of March, at a Quarter after Five, the Princes and Peers repaired to the Grand Chamber with the Magistrates, and each having taken his Seat according to his Rank, the Greffier was desired by the First Prefident to read the Proceedings on the Trial. At half an Hour after Six a Detachment of the French Guards were ordered to be posted in the Galleries of the Palace, the Avenues of the Chamber, & c. and about a Quarter of an Hour afterwards the Criminal was brought into the Grand Chamber with his Face covered ; and being, in the Midst of the Tribunal, fixed upon a Kind of Bed with Iron Rings, which prevented his moving of his Arms or Legs, he answer'd the Questions put to him by the First Prefident. At Half an Hour after Nine the Father and two Brothers of Damien were brought in, and also a Person suspected from having known and lived with him in the Jesuit's College; and afterwards his Wife and Daughter, an Aunt, and three others, were successively presented to him. He seemed not to be in the least af- fected when his Father and Brothers were brought to him, but was greatly disturbed at the Approach of his Wife and Daughter. They were all remanded back to their Chamber, and then the First President, having taken the Advice of the august Assembly, pronounced the Sentence of Death; which Sentence was executed the next Day. He was first brought in a Scavenger's Cart to the Gate of the Cathedral, where he perform'd the Amende honorable in his Shirt, holding a lighted Torch of 20 lb. Weight, and on his Knees confessed his horrid Crime, begging Par- don ot God, and the King, and the Law. From thence he was carried in the same Cart to the Greve, where he arrived at Three in the Afternoon. They took him up to the Town- House, and kept him there an Hour; after which he was laid upon the Scaffold, where his Parricide Hand was first pierced, then cut off, and burnt with Sul- phur. Then they tortured him with red hot Irons in his Breasts, Thighs, and Calves of his Leg', and poured into the Wounds melted Lead, boiling Oil, flaming Rosin and Wax and Brimstone melted together. These Ope being over, his Limbs were tied to four Horses, in order to be torn asunder ; but, though the Beasts were stout and vigorous, they could not do it in five or six Pulls , Per mission to dismember him was afterwards demanded and with Difficulty obtain'd. There were Signs of Life in him to that very Moment. In fine, his Quarters and Trunk were thrown into a blazing Pile, and continued burning ' till Seven o'Clock the next Morning. His Ashes are to be scatter'd to the Winds. It is likewise ordered in the Sentence, that the House where this Wretch was born shall be demolished, previously indemnifying the F prietor of it, and that no Building shall hereafter be erec - ted on that Spot where it stands.

We are further informed, that on the above Answer being received, considerable Appointments were offered TO Several of the Nobility and Gentry, in Connection with the present Ministry, and that they all begged to be excused from accepting of any such Posts, while a certain Person ( very latley appointed to a new Place) continued in any publick employment that had any Connexion with theirs We are assured that the City of London will speedily present the Right Hon.

' Tis said that three Battalions of the Foot Guards will speedily go abroad. Thursday Morning Admiral Smith hoisted his Flag again on board the Union in the Downs. We are now told, that the French find themselves so much embarrassed for Want of Seamen, of which we have such great Numbers Prisoners in England, that they have proposed Terms for a Cartel, or general Exchange; of Prisoners. We hear that some Conferences have been had with the Spanish Minister residing here, upon Advice received of the Detainer of the Antigallican's Prize; and also, that a categorical Answer is demanded to a grand Question. The Liverpool, Walker, from Jamaica for London, who was taken by a Bayonne Privateer, of 269 Pounders, and 340 Men, 140 Leagues to the Westward of Scilly, is retaken by the Mercury Privateer, and sent into Liver- pool. She had been in Possession of the French five Days. There is a List of 36 Privateers said to be now out from Bayonne and St. John de Luce, most of which mount from 20 to 30 Guns The Sally, Sullivan, from Cork for the Leeward- Islands, is taken by a French Privateer, and carried into Nazaire, with six Feet Water in her Hold. There is a Report that another Duch Packet Boat has been taken with two Mails on board. The Subscription to the Ladies Resolution Privateers ( three in Number, to be commanded by the brave Capt. Walker) upon the Books at Sir Charles Asgill's, and Mr. Drummond's, already amounts to 80001. at the Head of which stands the respectable Name of the Right Hon. the Countess of Northumberland By Letters from Antigu, of February last they write, that the French Privateers cruise so thick round that Island, that it is next to a Miracle for an English Vessel to get in there if she does not come with Convoy; and further say, that the French Privateers have taken near 70 Englith Vessels from last August to that Date, chiefly owing to the small Number of 20 Gun Ships and Sloops of War stationed there. The Humbug of the late Admiral Byng's being yet alive, is again revived, and Reasons are given why he is so ; but as it was never known that a Man lived after having five Musket Balls through his Body, we can't but think him dead. A Seaman lies under Sentence of Death at Spithead for threatning to kill the Captain. They write from divers Counties that the Ground this Spring has turned up very rich, and there is a Prospect of a plentiful Harvest. By a Letter from the North, we have an Account of the Death of one Harry Vas, Principal Servant to Ma- jor Grant of Moy in Scotland, and his Brother Col. Grant, whom he had served above forty Years, and saved about 600 1. Sterling, most of which he has left to charitable Ufes; particularly tool, to educate poor Boys at the School of Dyce, and 100 I. to each of the Infirmaries of Edinburgh and Aberdeen. We hear that the Bakers of the City and Liberty of Westminster have left off baking Rolls, on Account of the high Price of Bread. On Monday last a Match was run upon Knavesmire for 300 Guineas, betwixt a Grey Horse belonging to Leonard Thompson, Esq; and a Black Horse belonging to Mr. Preston, one four Mile Heat, catch Weight, and was won by the latter. A few Days ago was married at Cadesham, near Bath, Sir Edmund Alleyn, of Lees, in the County of Essex, Birt. to the Hon. Miss Tracy, youngest Daughter to the late Lord Viscount Tracy, a beautiful young Lady, with a large Fortune. Thursday Morning about Five o'Clock, a melancholy Accident happen'd at Mr. Golden's, a Carpenter's House in Red- Lion- Street, Holbourn, who had two Maiden Sisters lodged up two Pair of Stairs, one of them flung herself out of Window, by which Accident her Thigh was broke; she was immediately taken up and proper Assistance sent for, but by the Anguish of her Limb and being very much bruised, she expired between Nine and Ten o'Clock the same Morning. She was thought by many Persons to have been disordered in her Senses a con- siderable Time past. At the Assizes at Rochester one Person received Sentence of Death, viz Thomas Hill, for committing a Rape on the Body of Mary Bridges.

The French Army had no sooner set Foot upon the Territories of Juliers and Cologn, than it was in Possession of the Dutchies of Cleves and Mark, where every Place was opened to it. The Prince de Sou bise, whose Head Quarters are at Mazeyck, has ordered the Magistrates of Cleves to send their Deputies to Ma zeyck and some to this City ; the former to settle the Cou- tributions in Money, and the others the Quota of Forage. The Prussians that quitted WeseL march'd towards the Lippe, where thty are to join some Regiments from Mag- debourgh. A large Body of French is already arrived at Grimlinkhausen, from whence they are to march to Neuss, where it is assured the Head Quarters are to be.—— The Partisan Fischer, we hear, is already at Cleves, where he will make his Exploits be talked of. What mighty Ex- ploits can he perform in a Country where there are no Troops to oppose him ? Paris, April 1. His Majesty has ordered four Mem- bers of the Parliament of Besancon to be committed to Prison, and sent four more in Exile to Places remote from that City. In short, Matters are embroiled more than ever between the King and the Parliament., L O N D O N. [ Tuesday, April As soon as the Affair of the late unhappy Admiral was finish'd, the Publick naturally turn'd their Eyes towards other Delinquents, and were filled with Expectations of a thorough Enquiry into the Loss of MINORCA, and of our Miscarriages and Misconduct in America: but, alas the Events which last Week has produced, and the other Changes that are yet expected, leave them little or n0 Hopes of any further Enquiry into those Matters; nay, they think that such Charges are purposely made to pre- vent it, and seem to despair of ever seeing Justice com- pleatly done. We hear that a Scheme is drawn up and presented to the Lords of the Treasury for their Approbation, to raise a considerable Sum of Money by a Poll Tax, for defray- ing the extraordinary Expences of the War against France, & c. A Court of Common Council is expected to be call'd in a few Days upon Business of Importance. The Bounties for Seamen ate ordered to be continued till the 12th Day of May. We hear that his Royal Highness the Duke of Cum berland goes by Sea to Hamburgh. We hear that Part of France's Plan of Operations against Hanover, is to conquer Bremen and Verden, and, then make a Present of them to Sweden, in order to pur- chasse the Concurrence, or at least the Neutrality, of that Crown in the present War. From Hanover of the 25th ult. we learn that they are busy in Preparations for forming the Army of Observa- tion and posting Troops in the Passages through which a foreign Army might attempt to enter that Electorate. Part of the Army of Observation will assemble near Ha- melen ; another Part will encamp on the Weser near Nyenbourg. The Troops which are to compose this Army consist of 28,00^ Hanoverians, 12,000 Hessian Foot with a Regiment of Horse and 1oo Hussars, 6000 Troops of the Duke of Brunswick Wolfenbuttel, 6000 Prussians,— no Dutch !— and 800 Foot and 100 Hussars of the Count de Nieuwied. It is reported that several English Ships have been seized at Ostend, by an Order from the Empress Queen. We are assured, that there is no Account of the Pondi- cherry French Indiaman, a Prize to the Dover Man of War, since she was in Yarmouth Roads. Upwards of 30,000 I. have been insur'd upon her. She had 280 Men on board. On Saturday died, in an advanced Age, at his House in Henrietta- Street, Covent Garden, Lieutenant General Skelton, Colonel of a Regiment of Foot. Lately died at Gibraltar, John Arabin, Esq; Colonel of his Majesty's Fifty- seventh Regiment of Foot. The Parliament of Paris has issued an Arret against Damien's Family, whereby his Wife and Daughter, and his Father, are ordered to leave the Kingdom within a Fortnight, and never to return, upon Pain of being hang'd; and his Brothers, and their Wives, together with all his other Relations of the Name of Damien, are enjoined to change their Names, under the same Penalties Damien declared before his Execution, that there was no Plot formed, neither had he any Accomplices. On Monday Morning the Post- Boy coming to Town with the Worcester Mail, was attacked by a footpad, who presented a Pistol to him, and unbuckled only one End of the Mail, and got it upon his Shoulder; but the Post Boy perceiving that it was fast at the other End, clapped Spurs to his Horse, and by that Means pulled the fellow flat upon his Back, and got clear off with the Mail. There is now a Plan at the General Post- Office which will render it impossible to have any more Mails robbed for the future, if put in Practice. We have an Account from Cumberland, that Corn is so scarce there that People actually die for want of Bread : And that a poor Widow and two Children, after living sometime on Grains and Bran, were found dead one Morn- ing ; the Children had Straw in their Mouths. We hear that several Thousand Tinners have risen in Cornwall, on Account of the excessive Dearness of Bread.

" The Dutch and Spaniards do us great Damage in this Part of the World: The former have a small Island About four Leagues to the Leeward of this, called Sulta- na, which harbours all the French Privateers that are cruizing about this Island: Besides this, the Dutch sup- ply the French with large Quantities of Beef and Butter from our Islands, which we can no way prevent, unless We have no Trade or Commerce with them at all. " The Spaniards assist the French, by putting Spanish Merchants on board their Ships with false Consignments to some Part of Spain, when in reality they are the Pro- perty of the French, and bound to some Part of the French Dominions." Extract of a Letter from Curacoa, dated Feb 5. " Just now we have a Vessel from Martinico She brings an Account, that their outward bound Fleet is ta- ken, with two Men of War of 60 Guns, and one of 80." Charles Town. South Carolina, Dec 30.

Feb 10. We learn from Georgia, that the Chickesaw Indians lately attacked foer French Boats on the Halbama River, took two of them, killed four Men, and brought | off 60 Horse Loads of Plunder,—^ From the Motions of the French in those Parts, ' tis not improbable that they have in view some Attempts upon there Southern Pro- vinces, and this ensuing Spring may perhaps be the Time.
