B E R R O W's Worcester Journal. - . • [ Printed at his O F F I C E, in Goose- Lane, near the Cross. ] Price Two- pence Halfpenny. THURSDAY, August 4, 1757. N° 2505 FRIDAY'S and SATURDAY'S POSTS. Arriv'd the MAiLs from Flanders and Holland. GENOA, July 3. Tis certain that his Catholick Majesty. before the Close of this Month, will have a Fleet at Sea of twenty- four Ships of the Line and Frigates; and we are made to believe here that this is de- sign'd to take Satisfaction for the As- sistance given by a certain Nation to the Moors before Ceuta ; but, from the blocking up the Port of Toulon, and the Orders issued by the Court of Lisbon for recruiting all their Regiments, we apprehend a very different Design to be upon the Carpet. Stockholm, July 7 The Scene begins to open now, and there is nothing clearer than that, under certain Pretences, and with certain Views, we are to take a Share in this War. In order to this, Transports are assembling, and the conjoin'd Fleets are to escort Fourteen Thousand Men that are to be transported into Pomerania. The Russians have consented to furnish our Magazines with Corn, and the Army is to be commanded by Field Marshal Ungern de Sternberg. The King is much indisposed. Dresden, July 6. The 4th Instant near five thousand Prussians, wounded in the late Battle, arrived here. The Princess Royal causes Meat and Broth to be distributed among them every Day. They are lodged in the Play- House and Opera House, and Huts are erecting for ' em. Konigsberg, July 7. The Town of Memel having been very briskly bombarded ever since the 30th past, and the Place being ill fortified, with a weak Garrison, was oblig'd to capitulate the 5th Instant; but the Garrison were per- mitted to retire with their Arms. Gottinguen, July 11. We have been greatly alarmed here since the French passed the Weser and entered the Hanoverian Territories. Yesterday they took Minden, and demanded a thousand Loads of Hay, two thousand Sacks of Oats, and three thousand Loaves, but Deputies are sent to them to endeavour to get this Demand modera- ted. There is to be a Garrison of five thousand Men at Minden. Dusseldorp, July 19. Our last Letters from Westphalia r bring a Confirmation that the whole Allied Army ( that is, French and Austrians) passed the Weser the 16th with- out Opposition, and without Loss. It assembled the same Day at Holzminden ; but as Marshal d'Etrees gives the Order for marching only for one Day, they did not yet know the 16th what Rout they should take the next Day. Some say they shall advance towards Hamelen, where there is a Body of Hanoverians well intrenched) and they add, that the Duke of Cumberland was advancing with his Army to cover that Town, and at the same Time the City of Magdeburgh. Hanover, July 19. The French continue to raise pro- digious Contributions in this Electorate, and are Masters of Hesse Cassel. We likewise learn, with some Concern, that the Austrians have taken Possession of Hirschberg, and have laid a Part of the Dutchy of Silesia under Con tribution. His Prussian Majesty is, however, still Master en both Sides the Elbe, and from the Nature of his Dis- positions we speedily expect the News of another Action The like must happen here in a very few Days, the Army of Observation, under the Command of the Duke of Cumberland, consists of upwards of Forty- five Thousand Men, all in excellent Order, under veteran Officers, and disposed to do their utmost to deliver this Country from their natural and implacable Enemy. Worms, July 16. The Magistrates of this City have had it notified to them this Day, that a French Army, in eight Divisions, will speedily arrive in our Neighbour- hood. This Army will be commanded by the Marshal Duke de Richelieu, and it is thought will march directly into Bohemia ; from whence the last Advices assure us that the Prussian Army has begun its March towards the Frontiers of Saxony. Brussels, July 20. Letters just received from Ostend import, that several Battalions of French Troops enter'd that Town Yesterday, and that some other Troops of the same Nation are to enter Newport this Day, and keep those two Places, till otherwise order'd, under the Com- mand of Lieutenant General de la Motte ; and the Im- perial Garrisons are to march out, and be employ'd else- where. The same Letters advise, that the Empress Queen reserves to herself in those two Towns, and likewise on the Coast, the free and full Exercise of all the Rights of Sovereignty, the Levy and Use of the Duties on Imports and Exports, and all other Revenues whatsoever ; as also the Property and Disposal of the Artillery, Warlike Stores, Provisions, and all other Military Effects actually therein. To which End Lieutenant General de la Motte is to be sworn in Deputy Governor General of the Austrian Ne- therlands before her Majesty's Minister. • We presume Ostend and Newport are mortgaged for a Sum of Money, which the Court of Vienna never will be able to pay, unless she can take it out of the Coffers of Prussia. Utrecht, July 21. We learn from Westphalia, that the Palatine Troops have join'd those of France. Toulon, July 13. The English Squadron is gone to- wards the Levant, to convoy the Vessels which they have been forced to send to the Eastern Coasts of Africa for Corn. Paris, July 18. The Talk of a Descent on England is revived. M. de Conslans it going to Brest, to take the Command of a Squadron of 18 Ships and Frigates, of which those at Rochefort will make a Part. PLANTATION NEWS. New York, June 13. Yesterday Morning arrived here the Pliny Privateer Brig, Benjam. Stoddard, Commander, from a Cruize of eight Months, in which she has proved very successful; for, besides the rich Ship she carried into South Carolina on the 25th of May last, 40 Leagues to the Eastward of Bermuda, in Company with the Wasp Privateer of Halifax, Capt. M'Namara, of 12 Guns, and the King of Prussia Privateer, of Rhode Island, of 10 Guns, Capt. Roof, they fell in with a large French Ship of 350 Guns, called La Amiable Jane, M. Amaud, Com- mander, and a Snow of about 150 Tons, called St. Reine, both of which they took, after a short Dispute. The Ship mounted 16 Four- pounders, and had 50 Men; the Snow mounted 10 Guns and 30 Men; both richly laden with Indigo, Coffee, Sugar, Cotton, & c. bound from Cape Francois to Bourdeaux, and had been out fifty Days. The Prisoners in the Prizes say, that the Brig Dolphin, of Rhode Island, bound to Jamaica; as also a Packet Boat, from London. jo Jamaica ; and a Guineyman, with 350 Slaves, were all taken by M. Palanqui, in a Privateer of 16 Carriage Guns, the latter End of March last, off Hi- spaniola, and carried into Cape Francois. COUNTRY NEWS., Bath, July 25. By a Person arrived here from the Camp at Dorchester we are informed that, on Wednesday last, two Soldiers and a Woman were kill'd there by Light- ning. •' Salisbury, July 25. On Wednesday Morning a Ball of Fire fell from the Element among the Horses in Camp, and bounded along the Ground, which so affrighted many of them that they broke from the Piquet, and ran from the Down into the neighbouring Villages. LONDON. [ Thursday, July 28. By the last Advices from the Duke of Cumberland's Army it appears, that his Royal Highness was determined to risk a Battle with the French, and that the Affair must have been over on or before the 21st Instant. We are informed that his Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland has armed 30,000 Peasants for the Defence of the Electorate. It is said Advice has been received, that the Garrison and Inhabitants of Minorca are in the utmost Distress for Provisions, owing to four Ships laden with Corn for that Island being taken by the Defiance, Capt. Hervey, one of his Majesty's Ships; and that when the Ship which brought this Intelligence sailed from thence, the Garrison was ready to revolt. Some of the Troops left encamp'd on Blackheath, when the three Regiments marched for Wimbledon, in their Way to Portsmouth, are marched to fill up the Camp at Chatham. The Train of Artillery, which arrived at the Tower on Saturday last from High Wickham, in Bucks, is shortly to be embarked for the River Medway. Part of the Camp at Dorchester is broke up, the Troops being order'd to embark. This Day large Quantities of Wrought Iron, Brass, Copper, See. were shipped for Guernsey. The two Highland Battalions are ordered each to be augmented with three Companies; each Battalion will then consist of 1 300 Men. Tuesday 3818 Ounces of Silver Coin were shipped for Hamburgh. It is assured the Fleet from the Leeward- Islands, when it came from thence, consisted of 175 Sail, including those bound for different Ports in America ; and not a single Ship of them is missing. Several Ships which were near loaded when the said Fleet sailed, will take the Be- nefit of the Convoy from Jamaica. By the Leeward Island Fleet just arrived there is Ad- vice, that the Inhabitants of our Settlements there , are now entirely relieved from their Apprehensions of Danger from the French, the English being much superior to any Force that they can bring against them. Letters from the Leeward Islands, dated the 13th of June, inform us, that a French Squadron was arrived at Martinico, from the Coast of Africa and elsewhere, con- sisting of one Ship of 74 Guns, four of 64, one of 40, three of 36, one of and oat of 12 Guns. Extract of a Letter from Portsmouth, July 27. " Tuesday the 26th Instant, General Steuart's and Colonel Cornwallis's Regiments, came and encamped on South Sea Common near this Town, and this Morning the latter was shipped off on board several Vessels, to go over to the Isle of Wight and encamp there ; the other Regiment is to go on board of Men of War, to serve in the room of Marines " Three more Regiments are expected in this Day to encamp at the said Place." Brumpton, July 27. Yesterday two Battalions of Lord Charles Hay's and General Steuart's came from Wick- ham and encamp'd here; the former two Battalions marched again this Morning for Barham Downs, and the latter is to remain here. Three Companies from Lord Effingham's were draughted off Yesterday Afternoon, and embarked at Chatham Dock Yard to go to the Ships at the Nore; and it is said all that Battalion will be embarked to serve on board the Fleet. A Letter from on board the Peggy Sloop of War in Yarmouth Roads, July 14. " I was sent by the Order of our Captain to take the Command of a large Dutch Hoy which we took off Holy- Goland, in Company with two other Hoys also taken, who were laden with Timber, Butter, and Oats, bound from Hamburgh to France. We have also taken a large Dutch Ship which came from St. Domingo, and was go- ing to Dunkirk with Indigo and Sugar, and is valued at 30, cool. We are now going with the Prizes into Yar- mouth Haven to wait for further Orders." A Letter from Amsterdam informs us, that the French are marching Troops to be posted along the Coast, to prevent any Surprize from the English, which they seem to dread from our present Naval Preparations. Admiral Boscawen, with Part of his Fleet, is arrived it Plymouth, but is soon to return again. The Royal George Privateer, commanded by Capt. Thomas Reid, is fitting out in the River with great Ex- pedition: She mounts 21 Nine- pounders, besides Quarter- deck Guns and swivels, and carries 200 Men. A large French Cutter Privateer is taken and sent into Guernsey by the Rochester Man of War, who, with the Scarborough Man of War, was in Chace of two French Privateers, one of 40 and the other of 50 Guns. The Fortune, Thompson, from Jamaica to Bristol, is retaken by the Unicorn Man of War, and sent into Kinsale. The Medway arm'd Buss has taken ' a French Snow Privateer, and brought her into the Downs. A Dogger Privateer from St. Maloes, of 14 Guns and 94 Men, is sent into Cork by one of our Men of War. The Hibernia Privateer of London was well off Co- runna the 27th of June: She has in her Passage from Ply- mouth, drove a French Privateer on Shore, and destroyed her When the Letter came away, she was left in Chace of two St. Domingo Men. The Patterson, Cole, from Liverpool to New- York, is taken and carried into Bayonne. The Kingfisher, Mariner, from Jersey for Newfound- land, is carried into Bayonne. The Neptune, Burton, from Milford for Lisbon, is carried into Bayonne. The Duke of Bedford Privateer founder'd to the East- ward of the Groyne, and many of her Men are lost; On Thursday was married at the Collegiate Church of" Wolverhampton, in Staffordshire, Mr. Richard Price, an eminent Ironmonger of that Place, to Miss Molly Tom- keys, one of the Daughters of the late Thomas Tomkeys, Esq; of Neehells in the Parish of Wolverhampton afore- said. Yesterday Morning died at his House in White Fryars, Mr. Anthony Scale, Master of the Glass House there. At Tetbury Races, last Week, the Purse of Fifty Pounds was won by Mr. Brookes's Chesnut Horse, Rain- bow, got by Mr. Cornwall's Arabian, beating the Hon. Mr. How's bay Horse, got by Janus. And Thursday a Plate, of Fifty Pounds, was won by Mr. Wynn's bay Horse, Bobtail, against Mr. Cornwall's black Gelding, Melampus, and Mr. How's bay Horse. Last Monday Night a Quarrel ensued on Tower Hill, between an English Sailor and two foreign Sailors, who getting the Advantage of the British Tar, threw him into Tower Ditch ; but some Persons coming happily in the Interim, he was got out; on which, another Battle en- sued, and a Mob arising, committed great Outrages on several Houses on Little Tower Hill, which, it was said, the foreign Sailors took Refuge in ; but they being ap. peased for that Night, after having greatly damaged near 14 Houses, they assembled again the next Morning and committed great Violence. The Peace Officers endea- vour'd to quell them, but with no Effect for sometime; but on a further Reinforcement, five of them were taken into Custody, Yesterday Morning some Sailors, under Pretence of a Press Gang, stopped a Turk in the Minories, and insisted impress him, on which a Fray ensued, and the Turk his Defence cut one of them over his Hands in so des- erate a Manner, that it is thought he will lose the Use f them, and the Sailors also much wounded the Turk ; not not being satisfied with using him so, they secured him and brought him before the Lord Mayor, who soon dis- harged him, and reprimanded the Sailors for their Beha- iour. Yesterday Morning about Six o'Clock, as some Night men were emptying a Vault, on Ludgate- Hill, they found a Brass Box, which contained several Pieces of Gold coin, of King James the First, which amounted to near oo I. The Cart was emptied of the Soil in a Field be- ween Brick Lane in Old Street, and Islington ; and Yes- terday there were near 500 Persons, Men, Women, and Children, raking among the Soil up to their Knees, ex- pecting to find some Money. SUNDAY'S and MONDAY'S POSTS. From the LONDON GAZETTE. Warsaw, July 6. - THERE are Letters from Prussia of the 2d Instant, which say, that the Russians have actually invested Memel. Hague, July 22. By Letters of the 15th and 18th In- stant, from Afferden on the Weser, Major General Har- dingberg was marched towards Gottingen on the 15th, with the Grenadiers, and the second Line of the Army was marched to support him, and to attack, as it was imagined, a Body of French Troops which encamped between Golmbach and Wurbsen in the Bailiage of Forst. It was not imagined that all Marshal d'Etrees's Army would be over the Weser before the 20th Instant. We have no News of Consequence from Bohemia. AMERICA. Philadelphia, June 16. By a Letter from Williams- burgh, in Virginia, dated the 4th Instant, there is Ad- vice that, the Day before, the Assembly of that Province passed a Bill for giving Eighty Thousand Pounds to the King's Use. A French Privateer, taken by the Blandford Man of War, is condemn'd at St. Christopher's. She carried 32 Carriage and Swivel Guns, and was well fitted out wiih Swivel Blunderbusses, Pistols, Cutlasses, Lances, Pole- Axes, and all other Warlike Stores, carried 109 Men, and had taken no less than Twenty one English Ships. COUNTRY NEWS. Salisbury, July 23. Yesterday was found dead near this City, ( supposed to have been murder'd) a strange Gen tleman, who, by Letters found about him, appear'd to be a Doctor, call'd Stephens, who lately lived in Helstone, Cornwall. Extract of a Letter from Penryn, July 25. " On. Friday se'nnight was felt throughout Cornwall a violent Convulsion of the Earth : Its Continuance, I be- lieve. exceeded two Minutes, greatly alarming the Inha- bitants, who were every Moment in Expectation of a Chasm, but providentially no ill Consequences, except the following, attended it. Stephen Thomas Esq; formerly an eminent Counsellor of this Place, but retired to his Seat in the Country, sitting with his Lady in one of his Chamber Windows, became so confused at the unusual shivering of the Sashes together, with a low rumbling Noise, that he cried out in a Tremour, An Earthquake ! and being, as it were, momentarily deprived of Sense, he fell backwards, and ( as the Sash unfortunately happen'd to be up) tumbled into the Court, where he was taken up fcv his Servants in such a Condition as banishes all Hopes of Recovery. He was a Gentleman of very extensive , Knowledge and uncommon Capacity, tho' unhappy in a Constitution, which was of the tenderest Kind. A con- siderable Estate devolving to him lately by the Death of an elder Brother, he preferred the calm Simplicity of a rural Life to the Hurry and Fatigue of the Bar." Cambridge, July 30. Last Monday Night the Booth on Bedford Course, for the Conveniency of the Ladies du- ring the Races, was set on Fire, and entirely consumed, but by what Means the Proprietors cannot as yet find out, but have great Reason to think it was done by some evil- disposed People. On Tuesday last Lord Chedworth's Chesnut Colt won the Subscription Purse of 350 Guineas at Huntingdon. On Wednesday the Purse of 501. was won by Mr. Swin- burn's bay Horse, Nabob. On Thursday the Ladies Purse of 901. was won by the Duke of Devonshire's bay Horse, Spectator. LONDON. . [ Saturday, July 30. July 30. His Majesty's Ship the Southampton, commanded by Capt. Gilchrist, is put into Weymouth, and he gives an Account, that in his Way from St. Helen's for Plymouth, on the 25th Instant, about Eleven o'Clock at Night, off the High Land of St. Al- ban's, he fell in with five Sail of French Ships, two of which appear'd to him to be of equal Force with himself, one of them he engaged upwards of an Hour and half: She attempted to board him several Times, but meeting with a warm Reception, and receiving so much Damage from him, she made Signals for the other to bear down to her Assistance, which she immediately did, and he was Bow. the other upon the Quarter, and continued engaging him up- wards of an Hour longer; but Capt. Gilchrist luckily got his whole Broadside to bear on the first Ship, and by breeching his aftermost Guns aft, and his foremost Guns forward, he gare her a whole Broadside, which silenced her entirely. The other Ship then came up, and began a very smart Engagement for about a Quarter of an Hour, after which she dropp'd astern, By that Time the South- hampton was left a perfect Wreck, and in no Condition to follow either of them, having received eight very dan- gerous Shot between Wind and Water, had ten Men killed, and fourteen reported by the Surgeon to be mor- tally wounded, and as many more slightly wounded ; he was obliged to put into Weymouth to repair her Damages. The said five Ships are reported to be two Frigates, with three small Privateers; and the Frigates Weight of Me- tal is the same with the Southampton's. His Majesty's Ship the Isis, Capt. Wheeler, is arrived at Spithead, and has brought in with him three Privateers, viz. the Precieux, 26 Guns, 240 Men, commanded by M. Dubois; belonging to St. Maloe; the Conte Herville, 16 Guns, 180 Men, Dehoan, of Bourdeaux; and tbe Prince of Turin, 10 Guns, 84 Men, Debras, of Havre de Grace. Thus far the London Gazette.] We hear from Portsmouth, that the Southampton Man of War mounts 36 Guns, and that she had 50,000 1. on board, and was going round from Portfmouth to Ply- mouth, We are informed, by the Master of a Ship arrived at Guernsey from Halifax, that Admiral Holbourne, with all his Fleet, except the Windsor, a Sloop, and three Transports, arriv'd safe off that Port the Morning he sailed from thence; and that in the Evening of the same Day be fell in with the said Ship Windsor, Stc. and ac- quainted the Captain with the Admiral's Arrival. Much having been said about the Destination of Lord Loudon's Armament, and of the Junction of Admiral Holbourne's Forees with that General's, it is worth re- marking, that on the 25th of June the Men of War and Transports, with Lord Loudon's Troops, were left by the Wall Packet off Nantucket, about 36 Hours Sail from Halifax in Nova Scotia ; that Admiral Holbourne's Squa- dron, consisting of 14 Ships of the Line, four Sloops, one Bomb Ketch, one Fireship, with 55 Transports under Convoy, sailed from Cork the 8th of May, and on the 9th of June was seen off the Banks of Newfoundland, about 14 Days Sail from Halifax, by which it should seem, that these two Squadrons were designed to meet at one and the same Place of Rendezvous, about one and the same Time. It is further to be observed, that M. du Bois de la Mothe sailed from Brest on the 3d of May, with nine Ships of the Line, five Frigates, and 4 or 5000 Land Forces; that M. du Revest passed through the Straits of Gibraltar the Beginning of April, with four Ships of the Line and a Frigate, where he had a slight Engage- ment with the same Number of Ad. Saunders's Squadron. M. de Beaufremont's Squadron sailed to the Northward from the Island of Hispaniola in the West Indies, on or before the 26th of April. So that as all these Squadrons were undoubtedly intended to unite at Cape Breton, there i> the highest Probability that a decisive Engagement at Sea will be the Consequence. M. de la Mothe's Instec- tions seem to have been to land his Troops in the River St. Lawrence, from whence it may be inferred, that the French were in Fear for Quebeck. Notwithstanding the many Reports which have been spread, concerning his Royal Highness the Duke's being ill, & c. we can, from good Authority, assure our Readers, that they are without the least Foundation, his Royal Highness being in perfect Health. A Colonel in the Prussian Service is arriv'd here with some Dispatches of great Importance, and an Express was return'd on Thursday with an Answer thereto. By an exact Account of what passed in the Army of Marshal Keith on his raising the Siege of Prague, at which Time the Austrian Accounts magnified their Advantages even to a Victory, thete does not appear, that more than zoo Prussians were slain, and the same Number wounded, chiefly by the Austrian Artillery, their Troops from the Garrison not daring to make Head against the Prussians, who made their Retreat in Order of Battle. A Body of Austrian Troops has entered Silesia, and advanced as far as Landeshut and Schmeideberg, and their commanding Officer has sent a Message to the Magistrates of Hirschfeld to demand Contributions. Private Letters by the Holland Mail Yesterday say, the French Minister has demanded Delffyle, a Place belong- ing to the Dutch near Embden, as a Security for their observing of a strict Neutrality. Some Letters from Sweden say, that a general Embargo is laid on all the Ships in that Kingdom- We hear that the Officers of the three Regiments of Foot- Guards have received Notice, that they need not hold themselves in Readiness for Embarkation, agreeable to former Orders. We hear a Lieutenant and 40 Men are order'd imme- diately to be draughted from all the Regiments now in Scotland. By the Leeward' Island Fleet came the greatest Num- ber of private Letters to the Post Office that has been known: They have been estimated at 16,000; and seve- ral Merchants have paid from 20 to 30 1. Postage. We are told that one Merchant paid 50I. • It is said that Admiral Knowles is to act as Chief En- gineer, in and upon the intended Expedition, and is to be attended by 300 Matrosses, besides Officers, & c. A large Snow, from St. Domingo, is brought into Bri- stol by the Antient Briton Privateer, Capt. Murray, who has also taken and sent into Wales two French outward- bound Ships. « • The Defiance, of and for Southampton from Virginia, is retaken by the Eagle Gaily Privateer of Bristol, and brought into Falmouth. The Blakeney and Cavendish Privateers, of Corke, have taken three Dutch Vessels laden with Salt, bound from Sellers in France for Havre ; one of the Prizes is sent into Youghall, and the other two to Cove : They have also retaken a Vessel of and for Leith from Lisbon, laden with Wine, Salt, and Fruit. Extract of a Letter from Portsmouth, July 29. " Last Night Admiral Boscawen's Flag, was struck, and he is set out for London. " This Morning General Steuart's Regiment embark'd on board several Men of War at this Place, to do Duty " as Marines." . We are assured from a certain Parish in the Southam Hams, near Barnstable, Devonshire, that the Minister of the said Parish, fearing that Corn will at last fall, has begun to thresh out four hundred Bushels, which he with- held for a long while in hopes of a larger Price. It is confidently reported, that a certain Cornfactor in London has upwards of 10,000 Quarters of Corn, purchased by him and his Agents in this Country, which upon this sudden Fall they have not had Time to dis- pose of. We hear from Thame, in Oxfordshire, that Wheat was offered to Sale last Week at Six Shillings the Bushel; but the Country People would give no more than Four Shil- lings. On Wednesday last there were io, ooo Sacks of Flour at Queenhithe. We hear that within these six Weeks wheat has fell at the London Market 1 1. 2 s. a Quarter. This Morning the Judge of the Sheriff's Court gave his Opinion in Relation to the Dispute about the Dissenters serving the Office of Sheriff, & c. whereby it appears they are no way excused by any Law whatsoever. On Wednesday as the Rowland, Capt. Wilson, from St. Kitt's, was coming up Lee- Roads, she was fired at by a Man of War to bring her to, by which, unhappily, the Mate and a Foremast Man were killed on the Spot. On Thursday an imprudent Man, who went as a Sol- dier in the Orange Regiment, observing a Lad getting over one of the Gates, fired his Firelock at the Boy, and blow'd out one of his Eyes; the Fellow afterwards ran away, leaving his Firelock and Accoutrements behind him. Last Thursday Evening a melancholy Accident hap- pen'd in the Artillery Ground, during the Time the Of- ficers of the Orange Regiment of the Trained Bands were drinking their loyal Healths, when one Lee, a Journeyman Taylor, went so near the Mouth of their Cannon when they were firing, that the Wadding of one of them was shot into his Body, and killed him on the Spot.

The following very remarkable Case of the Right Hon. the Marquis of Lindsey, Son to his Grace the Duke of Ancaster, is publish'd by his Grace's Permission: On Friday the last Day of December, 1756, the Mar- qnis of Lindsey, a Child of twenty Months old, on Sus- picion of the Measles, was bled to five Ounces, and no Signs of Inflammation appeared. On Saturday, the first of Januiry. 1757, about Five o'Clock in the Afternoon, the Measles appeared. On Sunday, the second, they appeared full 0n his Face and Body. On Monday, the third, they began to decline, and a Hoarseness, Cough, and a Fever came on. On Tuesday, the 4th, in the Morning, they had quite disappeared, without leaving the least redness, and the bad Symptoms increased. He was then bled to five Ounces, the Blood shewing no Signs of Inflammation and about Three in the Afternoon, the Apothecary, who attended him, found more violent Symptoms, such as in- creased Heat, wheezing Cough, universal Languor, and fluttering Pulse; on which he immediately applied Blisters to the Back and Arms, and Dr. Baktr, Physician at Stam- ford, was sent for, who arrived about Eight o'Clock 011 Tuesday Night, and found the Fever very high, and the Cough violent. On Wednesday Morning, the 5th, the Symptoms ra- ther abated, a Clyster was given him, and at Three the Afternoon ( at which Time the Fever was very lent) three Ounces of Blood were taken from him, which shew'd no Marks of Inflammation. He bore this Bleeding so very ill, that it was with great difficulty he was brought to himself: However, on his Recovery from the faintings, he appeared relieved, and had a tolerable Night. All Thursday Morning, the 6th, he continued easy, hot, at three o'Clock in the Afternoon he was seized with great Difficulty of Breathing, and seemed in the utmost Danger. Two Blisters were then applied to the Legs, and as the Case became doubtful ( nutwithstanding Dr. Baker had with great Judgment prescribed every Thing that seemed proper in his Case) the Duke desired that Dr. James's Powder might be given, and at the same Time requested Dr Baker's Attendance during the Operation, to which he readily consented, and gave the greatest Sa tisfaction, by his particular Cure and Attention, Accord ingly, at Five in the Afternoon, four Grains of Dr James's Powders were given, which, in thirty- nine Mi nutes, vomited him briskly for an Hour, and give him two Stools : At Nine o'Clock three Grains more were given, in twenty Minutes he had one gentle Puke, and went to sleep. The Pulse growing quicker in four Hours afterwards, which was One in the Morning, he took four Grains more, which immediately came up ; he then vo mited twice in an easy Manner, had two Stools, went to sleep, but continued vomiting and purging gently at dis- tant Intervals, till Seven o'Clock Friday Morning. On Friday Morning, the 7th, about Three o'Clock, the Fever left him, and he continued free from it till Nine at Night, when his Pulse rose a little ; between Ten end Eleven he took four Grains more of the Powder, which in forty Minutes made him extremely sick ; he had several Strains for two Hours, but never vomited. N. B. Though his Cough had been extremely trouble some before, ' twas remarkable he never coughed once daring the two Hours of his Sickness; he then fell into a sound pleasant Sleep, and the Fever left him. On Saturday Morning, the 8th, about Three o'Clock, ' twas observed his Breast had sweated through his Shirt and Gown, after which he seem'd greatly relieved in his Breath and Cough. About Three in the Afternoon, as he seemed free from the Fever, a Dose of Rhubarb was given him, and he remained free from Disorder, except a gentle Cough.
