A new Body shall be chosen every third Year, so that all Persons duly qualified may serve in their Turns, each for three Years. [ Would it not have been better to have changed a certain Proportion only every year ? For by chang- ing all at once, there - will be every third Year a new Army totally - void of Discipline and Skill J A List of the Persons serving in each Parish shall be transmitted to the Lieutenant. Any Officer neglecting to return his List, or making a false or partial List, shall be committed for a Month to the common Gaol, or be fined not more than Five Pounds, or less than Forty Shillings.

[ The Remainder in our next. ] FRIDAY'S and SATURDAY'S POSTS. Arriv'd the MAILS from Flanders and Holland. STOCKHOLM, June 18. M. Panin, Minister Plenipotentiary from the Empress of Ruffia, lately delivered a Letter to the King, whereby that Princess exhorts the Crown of Sweden to succour by a powerful Diversion, as she pro- poses to do, the States that his Prussian Majesty has in- vaded in he Empire, and used in the most rigorous Man- ner. The King has since assisted at an extraordinary Meeting of the Senate, and it seems that some important Resolutions have been taken. All Dealers in sail- Cloth have received Orders not to sell any actually in their Warehouses, nor what they manufacture between this Time and the 3 1 ft Of July, except to the Crown The Government is buying up eighty thousand Ells of Cloth for_ the Army, and the Cordwainers are to furnish two thousand Pair of Shoes per Week. Recruits' are raising with all possible Diligence. Warsaw, June 10. We have received Letters from the Russian Camp at Schadow, importing, that her Im- perial Majesty's whole Army, amounting to one hundred and twenty five thousand Men, was assembling at Kow- naw ; that Part of this Army would penetrate forthwith into Prussia, and the rest lay Siege to Memel at the same time. Konigsgratz, June 9. Two young Fellows, one fifteen Years ot Age, and the other eighteen, are sentenced by Marshal Daun to have their Heads cut off, and their Bo- dies burnt, for setting Fire to some Towns, and engaging to do the same by others at the Instigation of the Enemy. Prague, June zi. We have just learnt from the Army of Marshal Daun, that the Loss of the Enemy in the Battle of the 18th amounts to twenty two thousand Men, and that we took six thousand, and two Generals. The King is retreated to Nimbourg, and the Troops that were near that Place are gone to pass the Elbe at Brandeiss to join him Our Troops fought with great Bravery We lost between four and five thousand Men, with the Ge- nerals Lusan, Wulffen, and Krottendorff Letter from Prague, of be above Date. " At length, ( thank Heaven'for all Things) we are delivered from the Prussians, but heartily wish that Prince Charles's Army had never taken Shelter within our Walls. On a moderate Computation near half of the City is de- stroy'd, and abundance of Lives have been lost, as well by Scantiness of Provisions, as by the Bombardment. It is but a Fortnight since the Garrison, wanting to get rid of useless Mouths, turn'd out above twelve thousand of the Inhabitants; but the Prussians drove them back into the City : And had not Marshal Daun gained a Victory, ' by the King of Prussia's being first deceived by false In- telligence artfully thrown in his Way, and afterwards by His relying too much on the Bravery of his Troops, this Place must have surrender'd by this Time. This good Turn of Fortune has saved the Empress Queen's Army here, but We are ruined amongst them all. The Business now is, to provide this Army with Necessaries for taking the Field" PLANTATION NEWS. Charles Town. South Carolina, April 14 We have Advice that our good Friends the Dutch have compleatly arm'd and mann'd severa1 stout Vessels at Curacoa, in or- der to supply the french Colonies with Provisions, at all Events. : ; - I ' \ LONDON Thursday, July 7. ~ ' l They write from Hanover, that Marshal d'Estrees lately sent an Officer tp the Duke of Cumberland to demand a free Passage through that Electorate ; at the same time Northumberland, Newcastle upon Tyne and Berwick Nottingham County and Town Oxfordshire. Rutlandshire Salop Somersetshire Southampt. County " 7 and Town J Staffordshire and Lichfield Suffolk Surry Sussex Warwick County and Coventry Westmoreland Worcester Co. and City Wilts York County and West Riding North Riding East Riding and Hull Anglesea Brecknock giving his Word of Honour, that no Damage should be done to any of the Electoral Dominions, and that the French Army should observe the most exact Discipline as they pass'd through; but that, in case of Refusal, he shouid make his Way Sword in Hand. To which his Royal Highness made Answer, that such a Demand was diametrically contrary to the Views which induced him to accept of the Command conferred upon him by his Royal Father ; so that a Battle is expected very soon. A Letter from an Irish Veteran Officer in Marshal Daun's Army, says, that the Battle on the 18th part was the most obstinate and bloody one he had ever seen ; that the. Austrian Infantry could not withstand the Prussian Foot that the latter had certainly gained the Victory, had not their Cavalry been too much fatigued by a long March, and also too few in Number to support them ; and that the Number of Slain and Wounded on both Sides is nearly equal. Some private Letters from Dresden, by Yesterday's Mail, bring Advice that the King of Prussia is arrived there from Bohemia ; but it does not appear that his Army was following him. nor that the Austrians had made any Motions to advance towards Saxony since ths late Battle. By private Letters there is Advice, that the Loss of the King of Prussia was nothing near what has been repre- sented ; and that his Majesty had called in all the Out par- ties, and was collecting his Forces, and taking proper Measures to attack the Enemy speedily. We hear that several Transports are, or speedily will be taken into the Government's Service ; and ' tis supposed some Troops may be sent over to Holland or Germany. The New York Packet, arrived Yesterday, Came in 27 Days, and brings Letters from thence dated the 6th of June, which say, that Lord Loudon was to sail the next Day from that Port for Halifax with the Troops, and near one hundred Transports, where his Lordship was to wait the Arrival of Admiral Holbourne, in order to go in Conjunction upon an important Expedition. The Ambuscade Man of War has taken a large Swede, richly laden, from Marseilles, and carried her into Leg- horn. x The Tartar Man of War, Capt. Lockhart, the King of Prussia Privateer of London, and a Bristol Privateer, were left in Chace of the French Fleet, which at first con- sisted of thirty Merchantmen, under Convoy ol two French Men of War. By the Sophia Magdalen, lately arrived at Copenhagen from Tranquebar, there are Letters of the 15th of Octo- ber, 1756, importing, that the Danish Missionaries go on so successfully in that Country, that in- the Course of last Year some hundreds of Families had openly embraced the Christian Religion. On Tuesday the Election ended at Windsor for a Mem- ber to represent that Borough in Parliament, when the Right Hon Henry Fox, Esq was re elected. Lately died- » t his House in Huntwell, in NorthUm- berland, Mr. Joshua Watson, one of the People called Quakers, who lived to see Children, Grand Children, and Great Grand Children, to the Number of Eighty seVen, many of whom attended his Funeral. He was in his Youth a great Lover and Encourager of Planting, the Fruits of which accompanied him to the Grave, for he was buried in a Coffin made out of a Tree of his own raising. SUNDAY'S and MONDAY'S POSTS. Arriv'd the MAILS from Holland and Flanders. STUTgARD, ( Capital of tbe Duke of Wittenberg,) June 22. FOUR thousand of the Troops of our most serene Duke were, on the 14th, delivered to a French Commissary, who immediately reviewed them. Scarce was the Review finished, when the Soldiers began to mut- ter, and to say aloud, that they were sold. Next Morning thirty deserted at once. The Thing did not stop here : They were followed by many more. Bands of twenty and thirty forced their Way through the Detachments that guarded the Gates. In the Evening the Mutiny be- come general. They fired upon the Officers in the Bar- racks, and even bearded the General and Field Officers. Some of them called to the General, that if he did not immediately withdraw from before the Barracks, they would bring him from his Horse with Musket Balls. Mean while some Officers having pursued the Deserters, brought back a Part of them Prisoners, The Mutineers being in- formed thereof, declared, that if they were not imme- diately set at Liberty, they would set fire to the Barracks, and to the Stadthouse. Lest they should carry their Threats into Execution, the Prisoners were released late in the Evening Nevertheless, these licentious young Fellows sat up all Night, Drinking, making a Noise, and some. times firing This Morning they assembled, and having seized some of their Officers, marched out of Town, three or four hundred at a Time, with the Musick of the Regiments playing before them, the General having beg- ged of them to go away peaceably in God's Name. In this Manner near 3000 of them filed off, and the Remain der have since been discharged. Thus our Army has melted away almost in a Moment. Prague, June 23 Our Cathedral has sufFered so much by t Bombardment, that we could not sing Te Deum in it Yesterday, for fear it should tumble about our Ears. Three hundred Burghers, Women, and Children, were killed during the Siege The Garrison has not lost above 600 Men, who were chiefly killed in the different Sallies. It was on the 20 h in the Afternoon that we observed a great Motion in the Enemy's Camp, when we made a Sally with- 27, ooo Men and all out Cavalry ; but notwith- standing all our Diligence, we Could reach Only some • . .. j • ^ i. * 1 Battallions, where We killed 700 Men and took 111; without reckoning 600 of their wounded on the Day of Battle, which they were obliged to abandon. We took seven Pieces of Cannon, a great Quantity of Ammunition, and Forty five Pontons with their Carriages. Yesterday we found many Bombs and Grenades which the Enemy had concealed. • Since our Deliverance, upwards of 500 Prussian Deserters are come hither. We were in such Distress during the Siege, that above 300 Horses had been eaten, and the worst of Oil and Candle- Grease served us for Butter. We have received Orders to leave the City, and shall put in march To- morrow. Vienna, June 22 We took 54 Pieces of Artillery and 30 Standards from the Prussians, in the Battle of the 18th : Our Loss is computed at about 5000 killed and wounded. Among the Slain, are, the Baron Mohr de Wahl, Colonel of the Regiment of the Teutonick Order, the Count de Harrach, and the Count de Pappenheim; the Count de St. Ignon is slightly wounded. This Morning Count Bennet de Daun arrived here from the Army of the Marshal, with the Colours, Standards, and other Trophies taken in the Battle of the 18th. Marshal Daun returned into his old Camp, near Kri- Chenau, the Day affer the Battle ; but our Hussars and other Light Troops were in Pursuit of the Enemy, and had made a great Number Prisoners, who already amounted to near 4000. Vienna, June 2$. We have Accounts from Bohemia that the Prussians desert almost in Whole Regiments. Amsterdam, July 4 We learn from Westphalia that 40 Battallions of the French Army have passed the Weser at Corvey. Last Week there was a Skirmish at Remen, wherein the French lost some Men by the Cannon of the Hanoverians, which were loaded with Pieces of Iron and broken Glass. By Letters from Saxony we are informed that the King of Prussia's Life was in great Danger at the late Battle. It was a Baker who saved him, with two of hits Aids de Camp. ... . Hague, July 5. We have Advice, by Letters from Ber- lin, that the Queen Dowager of Prussia died suddenly the 28th of last Month, at her Palace of Montbijon, in the 71st Year of her Age. Leipsick, June 28. It is very true that the Prussians surprized the Town of Erfurt, but they have not master'd the Citadel of Petersberg: A Composition has been made with them for the Convents, the Town and the Citadel, at the Rate of 400,000 Crowns; but as this Sum could not be instantly raised, they have taken five Hostages, and are gone towards Molsiatisen, probably to raise Con- tributions there. The Advices received from Bohemia report, that since the Battle of the 18th instant, the Army commanded by the King and the Prince of Bevern had passed the Elb at Nimbourg, in order to take a proper Position for covering Silesia ; and the Army under the Command of Marshal Keith was drawing towards SaxOny. His Artillery has been carried to Leitmaritz, and embarked there on the Elb : The Wounded are also sent down this River, and some Thousands of them are already arriv'd at Dresden ; and as it was difficult to find Room and AccommOdations for them all, the Queen of Poland, overlooking all past Injuries, generously took 1100 of them into her own Pa lace, and into the Buildings belonging to the Royal Gar- dens. P. S. We have just received Advice, that the Van- Guard of Marshal Keith's Army has already reach'd the Frontiers of Saxony ; and ' tis said,' that upwards of 15,000 Hussars, Croats, and other light- armed Troops, headed " by General Nadasti, are in Pursuit of it. As for the King of Prussia's Position, ' tis said, that after having re assem- bled his Army and his Artillery on the Right of the Elb, he remov'd from Nimbourg to Jung Buntzlau. Utrecht, July 3. Letters from East- Frizeland advise, that a Corps detached from the French Army has enter'd that Province, and taken Possesion of the Town of Lier : And from Westphalia they write, that we shall next Week hear of the French passing the Weser. From the LONDON GAZETTE. Warsaw, June 1 j The Russian Army were to be last Monday at Kowno, which is the Place of general Ren- dezvous, and where a general Review was to be : After which they were immediately to pass the River Niemen, which will bring them within about 15 German Miles ot the Frontiers of Prussia. Dantzick, June 19. The Ports of Konigsberg and Memel have been blocked up for some Days past by the Russian Cruizers, so that no Vessel whatsoever is permitied to go either in or out. Brussels, July 5. According to Letters from Prague, of the 23d paft, the Troops that were in that Place were to join Marshal Daun's Army the next Day, in order to follow the Prussian Army, without any Loss of Time Some Letters received from thence Yesterday, mention the Death of Field Marshal Brown. I R E. L A N D. Dublin Friday Morning early John Mathew- man, Late a Merchant at Dronthem, was found strangled in a House 0f ill Fame in Essex Street. The Coroner' Inquest have sat on the Body, and brought in their Ver- dict Wilful Murder by Persons unknown Isabella Rea, Mistress of the Brothel, and Clare Crosby, one of the Nuns,( who was in Company with the Deceased) are taken and lodged in Newgate, isabella Rea's Daughter hath absconded. Corke, June 271 Last Tuesday Phillis Burchell, aged Sixty three Years, was delivered of a Daughter, which she hath sworn is the Child of Francis Gwynn, a Man of Seventy four.. LONDON. [ Saturday, July 9. By the Act of Parliament lately pass'd, all Waggons travelling for Hire are deem'd Common Stage Waggons, tho' they do not travel regular Stages and such as travel with Narrow Wheels, and more than four Horses. are liable to a Penalty of Five Pounds, and are also inclinable as common Nusances Those who travel with four, to pay one half more for Narrow Wheels at all Turnpikes than the present Tolls. All Carts which pass through any Turnpike with Dung, or any other Manure ( unless they have Wheels Nine Inches wide) are to pay as Car- riages with other Goods, nor is any Person suffered to compound for the Tolls who travels with Narrow Wheels. Broad Wheel Waggons are to travel with their Horses in Pairs, but Narrow Wheels are not permitted to travel in. Pairs, but Lengthways. Waggons and Carts with six Inch Wheels, are to pay full Toll, as Narrow Wheels. Waggons are not to be wider than five Feet six Inches, measuring from the Middle of each Wheel. After the 24th of June, 1758, Broad Wheel Waggons are to pay one half the present Tolls. The Tax will then be Eigh- teen- pence for every Narrow- Wheel'd Waggon drawn by four Horses, where the Toll is now One Shilling; and Six pence for every Broad Wheel with eight Horses.— A sufficient Encouragement for all Farmers and Carriers ta use Broad Wheels ! [ The Author of The Essay on Publick Roads computes; That the Savings of a Carrier, who uses one Broad Wheel Waggon instead of two Narrow ones, amounts 10 at least One Hundred and Fifty Pounds per Annum. His Saving will be still the same when he pays Six- pence instead of Eighteen pence, as it is now he pays Nothing instead of One Shilling ; and as to the first Expence of Broad Wheels, the Saying at the Turn- pikes in paying Nothing for the ensuing Year, will pay for mere than two Setts of Broad Wheels for any constant Stage Wiggon. , Lond. Ev. Post. It is apprehended that Lord Loudon will not be able to do any Thing considerable this Season, Advice having , been received . at the French Squadron which sailed un- der M. de Bea 0 emont from the West Indies in the Begin- ning of May, and that which sailed from Toulon at the same Time under M. du Revest, joined that which sailed from Brest under M. du Bois de la Mothe, and appeared off Halifax in Nova Scotia. It is imagined that this Squa- dron will give Battle to Admiral Holbourne, who was OB the Banks of New Foundland on the 6th of June The Defiance privateer of Bristol has taken a large St. Domingo Ship, homeward- bound. The Hawke, Wilson, from Turkey, it come to her Moorings in the River. It is said, since she has been from England she has taken 10 Prizes; and coUld have taken more if she had had Hands to spare to put on board them. Tne Turkey and Leghorn Fleet arrived is said to con- sist of 53 Sail, with Ships from Malaga, elsewhere, and Neutrals, 16 of'which are bound for London. Extract of a Letter from Portsmouth, July 8. *' It is said, Sir Edward Hawke and Admiral West are going to command in the Mediterranean ; and what streng- thens the Conjecture is, that the Ramillies ( Sir Edward's Ship) is already come into the Harbour to clean, and the Neptune ( Admiral West's Ship) will come in To day or To- morrow. " In short, there seems within these few Days to be some Vigour in Naval Affairs here." Letter from Tor- Bay, July 3. - " The Fleet under the Command of Commodore Moore, consisting of seven Men of War and twenty- seven Merchantmen, bound for the West Indies, came to an Anchor on Saturday Morning, the Wind being contrary. " We have the Prospect of an agreeable Voyage to Jamaica,- unless disturb'd by the Soldiers we have on board all Press'd Men - who are going much against their Wills, as they give us to understand by their con- tinual Grumbling. The Captain has already been obliged to put two of them in Irons, for threatening the Ship's Company. We are, however, well provided with Arms in the Cabin, and there is a constant Watch upon Deck ; notwithstanding which, two of the Soldiers attempted t » swim ashore this Morning, but would soon have been drowned, had not the Captain order'd out the Boat. One of them, hardly recovered of a Fever which he brought from the Savoy, was sinking when the People took him up.. I was much delighted with the Captain's Humanity, who, instead of firing upon them, ( as the Serjeant desired him) while they were swimming, gave each of them a Dram as soon as they were brought on board An EPIGRAM On Antient SPINNING and Modern CARDING.

Madrid, June 20. Letters from Barcelona, of the 12th Inst. relate, that an English Vessel, richly laden, the St. George, Andrew Ives, Master) had been taken eight Days before, near Oran, in her Passage from Smyrna to Lon- don, by a French Privateer of 14 Guns and 400 Men, called le Bien Aime. That the Captain of the Privateer, Louis Simon, had left on board the Prize no more than four Mariners of her own Crew, viz the English Mate named Peter Murray, the Boatswain. and two Sailors; and had ordered 17 of his own People, under the Com- mand of one of his Officers, one joseph Vidal, to carry her to Marseilles. That on the Night before the Date of those Letters, ( the said Vessel being then about 15 Miles Distance from the Coast of Catalonia) the English Mate observing the French Commander to be fast asleep in the Cabbin, had found Means to enter the same, to provide himself there with a Pistol and three Cutlasses, and then to attack and drive away from the Quarter- Deck to the Fore Castle, eight French Mariners that were on the Watch, after wounding one of them who had refused to retire. That upon this the French Commander being awakened by the Noise, came to the Cabbin Door with a Pistol in his Hand, which he endeavour'd to fire on the English Mate, but that his Pistol's not going off, gave the latter an Opportunity of firing his own, With the good Success of Lodging two Balls in the French Commander's Shoul- der, and forcing him thereby to retire. That at this ; Time the other three English Mariners were come from below upon the Deck, from whence they forced the eight French ones before mentioned to go down in the Hold to their Comrades, with Menaces to kill the first who should appear again on the Deck. That in the mean while the English Mate had drawn out of the Cabbin all the Arms, and laid them near himself on the Deck i after which he had taken the Command of the Vessel, and ordered four of the French Mariners to come out of the Hold and to be stationed between the Fore Castle and the Main- Mast, with Prohibition, on Pain of Death, of coming nearer ( Remarkable for Selling and Sharing the Great Prizes,) At his STATR LoTtERy OFFICE, under the Piazzas of the Royal Exchange, at his House in Ludgate Street, and at his Office at Charing Cross, Where the NUMERICAL and REGISTER BOOKS of the Drawing of the LOTTERY will be kept. •„* Th « LOTTERY consists of a Million and Five TICKETS, and will be determined by 66667 Numbers, which make Fifteen Tickets of each Number ; the Diawing of One Ticket to decide the Fate of; the ather Fourteen. 13* In the present LOTTERY there are fifteen Prizes of lo. oool. each I One hundred arid fifty of ibol.

According to our last Letters from Marshal d'Estrees Army, the French are said to be in full Possession of the Principality of East Friesland, and all Communication cut off through Westphalia between the Electorate of Ha- nover and the United Provinces London, April 9 1757.

That with these Precautions he had had the good Luck to bring the Vessel that Morning at an Anchor in the Port ot Barcelona, where he had made immediately his Declaration before the English Consul of this whole Transaction, conformable to what is above re lated. The same Letters mention the taking, in that Neighbourhood, of a French Tartan, bound from Va- lencia to Marseilles, said to be worth 11,000 Dollars, on the 8th Instant, by a small English Privateer of Gibraltar, called the Revenge; and being a Row Boat of no more than 20 or 30 Men.

A Rumour is current Here that the Eng lish have Suffered another considerable loss in the East- Indies. the Indians having seized their Treasure, amount ing 10 One Hundred and Fifty Millions of Livres in Gold Brussels Gazette. London. Tuesday, july 12 There was no Court at Kensington, on Sunday, on Ac- count 0f the Death of the Dowager Queen of Prussia. The Wound which the duke of Cumberland received in his Leg at the Battle of Dettingen, is broke out a fresh; and Mr Ranby, his Majesty's Surguon, is sent for to at- tend his Royal Highness , We hear a Draught of five Regiments are going abroad immediately, and will be directly followed by another of the same Number. The Fleet under the Command of Admiral Osborne arrived at Gibraltar the 29th of May, after an agreeable Passage of three Weeks, the Weather being exceeding fine and pleasant all the Way. Several Chests of Money have been found concealed among the Ballast of the Dromedaire, from St Domingo, taken by his Majesty's Ship York. It is thought to be as rich a Ship as any taken this War. The York is sailed on another Cruise for a Month, but on what Station is not known. Advices received at Cologn from the French Army say, that the Empress has ordered two Regiments of Hussars to march to reinforce Marshal d'Estrees. Letters from Hamburgh say, that the Russian Army by Land, and the Fleet by Sea, were in full Motion to attack Memel; and that 9000 Men had been landed from the Fleet. And that the Inhabitants of Prussia were re- moving their most valuable Effects to Places of greater Security. It was Yesterday reported, that the French had taken Embden, a Port Town and City in the Circle of West- phalia, and Capital of the County of Embden. Private Letters from Francfort diminish greatly what the Court of Vienna stiles a decisive Victory. These Letters say, that the Austrians lost near 7000 Men, and the Prussians not quite so many j they remark, that the victorious Army has not yet advanced, and that his Prus- sian Majesty is between them and Prague. They admit that some Letters say, that Count Daun was gone to con- fer with Prince Charles of Lorrain; but there are other Letters which say, that he has taken a longer Journey, and that he is actually dead of the Wounds he received in the Action. They write from Berlin, that they have certain Advice of the King's being in perfect Health; and that he is ad- vanced to Lietmaritz with 6o, ooo Men while Marshal Keith retires into Saxony, and disposes every Thing in the properest Manner possible, for the Defence of that Chain of fortified Places, which was prepared in the Winter to cover that Electorate from an Invasion. We hear that an Express is arrived from the King of Prussia s and that his Army is in good Order, and able to face the Enemy. And ' tis confidently reported that another Express, by the Way of Stade. has brought Advice of a second Battle The Empress- Queen has given a Month's Pay, by of Reward, to all the Officers that were in the last Battle and two Month's to those that have been wounded ; and to all the Subalterns and Soldiers a Gratification of 15 Kreutzers. We have Advice from Vienna, that the Emperor and Empress, on Sunday Morning the 26th of June, assisted at the Te Deum which was sung at the Cathedral for the Deliverance of Prague; and, in the Evening, their Im- perial Majesties appeared at the French Comedy, with the three eldest Archdukes, and the four eldest Archdutchesses Letters from Ostend observe, that in the Midst of their Rejoicings for the Victory gained by Marshal Daun over the King of Prussia, the Inhabitants of that town, a well as those of Brussels and other Places in the Austrian Netherlands, were going to burn that Monarch in Effigy but were immediately prevented and severely checked by the Magistrates for this intended indecent Demonstration of their Zeal and Loyalty : But in French Flanders the! Mob were suffered to give full Swing to their Fury and ill Manners against that brave Prince, the Government, per- haps; thinking that they had no more Measures to keep With him. Admiral Boscawen is sail'd to North America. Last Thursday the Right Hon. William Pitt. Esq; was elected unanimously to represent the City of Bath. j The Anson Privateer, Capt.

THE Beginning of this Month was published a New Paper, called LLOVD's EVENING POST and BRITISH CHRONICLE. The general Plan of this Paper is the same with that of the London Chronicle, which is already sufficiently known; but the Days of Publication are different. It is pub- lished in the Evening of every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and circu- lated thro' great Part of the Kingdom by the Post which now sets out on what were called the Bye Nights to all the trading Cities, and all the Sea Ports of Note. The Reasons that induce the Proprietors to alter the Time of Publication from that of every, other News Paper, are, that all the foreign Mails, in their regular Course, arrive in the Forenoon of these days, by translating of which the News they bring is known in London the same' Night, and in other Parts the next Day as early as it is at present in London. Add to this, that the com mcrcial Intelligence by private Letters, which before spread only to a small Circle round the Exchange, is regularly inserted in this Paper, and by an immediate Publication- becomes generally known ; an Advantage of no small moment to Persons at a Distance concerned in Trade. To Inns, Coffee- Houses, Taverns, and Publick Houses in the Country, the having a Paper regularly every Day, must be more agreeable to their Readers than having two or three at once, which usually are filled with the very same Intelligence. At a Time therefore that the Expenee ' News Papers is greatly enhanced by a DOUBLE DUTY, 9n Attempt to serve the Publick in general, and at the same Time ease the Pur- chasers, will, it is hoped, meet with due Encouragement. *** By sending Orders to the Clerks of the respective Roads, Gen- tlemen, and others in the Country, will be regularly served with Lloyd's Evening Post, as it is published. N. B. Advertisements and Letters to the Author are taKen in at Lloyd's Coffee- House.
