[ Printed at his O F F I C E, in Goose- Lane, near the Cross. ] Price Two- pence Halfpenny. THURSDAY, November 3, 1757. N° 2518 FRIDAY'S and SATURDAY'S POSTS. From the LONDON EVENING POST. , To the AUTHOR, & c. S I R, Have just Sense enough to know that my Talents are none of the brightest ; but to balance this I have a pretty good Memory ; and, tho' I never make any Pretensions to it myself, I take a Plea- sure in hearing and repeating the Wit of other Men. There is a Coffee house over- against my House frequented by very clever Fellows, and they, like the rest of their Brethren, were discussing a certain Affair in the following Manner: Pray Neighbour, said Tom Essence the Perfumer, to • Mr. Peter Pigtail the Tobacconist, What do you hear • of THE EXPEDITION? Softly, Tom, reply'd he, they ' have been good Customers to us both. At setting out • they provided large Quantities of your Commodities, • Powder and Ball; and in the Close finished with me • thus ( clapping his Pipe to his Mouth), I mean in a • Yon are disposed to be merry, Gentlemen, said Sam Scribble, who is a Clerk in a Publick Office ; but I take this to be a Matter of Policy, and that things were thus managed not to exasperate Matters at this critical Junc ture. They say there is a Minister coming hither from the same Court, that helped ths Hanoverians out in their Distress, and perhaps this is a Preliminary to his doing as much for us Very likely, reply'd Tom Essence, for certainly our Expedition and the Convention at Stade are much of a Piece. Upon this Mr. Trippit the Dancing Master interposed. Please to hear my Sentiments, Gentlemen, said he: You must consider that the Dauphiness was on the Point of Lying- in, and there would have been something very rude certainly in bombing of Towns, and burning of Ships, when a Lady was in sUch a Condition. Very pretty indeed, added Pigtail, and so to prevent a French Miscarriage, Old England has been finely brought to bed. ' In Truth, said Mr. Blister the Ajothecary, this is very unbecoming Language upon so melancholy an Oc- casion. Thee art in the right, Friend, quoth Paul Prim the Quaker, Five Hundred such Jokes of these are not worth a Farthing-, but then Thou must allow that the Expedition itself was as errant a Joke, tho' it cost near a Million, and that is worst of all' I am, Sir, your Very humble Servant, Strand, Tuesday Evening. HUMPHRY HUM. Foreign Intelligence. LEGHORN, October 1. EVERY Thing is very quiet in Corsica since the Re pulse the Malecontents met with before San Pelle- grino ; but ' tis said that their General Paola, is labour- ing to assemble them aga n on the other Side the Moun- tains, in order to attempt fome fresh Enterprize of Mo- ment. Genoa, Oct. 1. According to the last Advices from Toulon, they are making considerable Armaments in that Port, the Destination of which it yet a Secret. They take all the Sesmen both from Privateers and Merchant- men to be employ'd in the King's Service. Hanover, Oct. 11. The French continue to obseve a very rigorous Discipline. Yesterday a Swiss Soldier was hanged in the Market of the Old Town, for stealing some Window Curtains at Herrenhausen, where he was upon Guard ; another Soldier, who was brought in Prisoner this Day, will be sent out of the World in the same Man- ner. This Fellow, as he was returning from the Hospital, whither he had been sent very ill, had called at the House of a Countryman near this Town, supped, and laid there all Night; As he liked his Quarters, he told his Host next Morning that he would spend the Day with him, and the Man not relishing bis Proposal, the Villain shot him dead upon the Spot. Six young Fellows belonging to our Corps of Hunters, having, under Pretence of supplying the Duke de Ran- dan's table, gone a Hunting in a neighbouring Forest a which abounds with all Kind of Game, were taken in the Fact, and being convicted of falsetly making Use of that Nobleman's Name, were punished in an exemplary Manner on the 5th Instant. Three Post were erected in the Market Place of the Old Town, to each of which two were tied, and after being severely whipp'd, asd branded on the Shoulder with the Flower de Luce, by the Common Hangman, they were banish'd the Country for ever Paris, Oct. 12. It was M de Prince, Governor of the Island of Rhe, who gave the first Notice of the Ap- pearance of the Enemy's Fleet to the Marshal Sennec- terre, who commands in the Province If the English had push'd their Enterprize with that Celerity and Valour ( which are the principal Means of Success in Attempts of this Kind) they had infallibly succeeded in ruining and burning our Docks and Magazines at Rochfort Two of the King's Ships, the Prudence of 74 Guns, and the Ca- pricious of 64, which were in the Road, and could not be got back into the River, were on the very Point of being set on Fire by their respective Crews, as the only Means of preventing their falling into the Enemy's Hands, when that Enemy was graciously pleased to render that Measure unnecessary, by quitting the Coast. Paris, Oct. 14. A Foreigner of Distinction is sent to the Bastile, charged with being a Spy. Amsterdam, Oct. 20. Letters just come in from Mar- shal Richelieu's Army, confirm that it will do nothing more this Season, except detaching twenty Battlions and eighteen Squadrons, who are on their March to Nard- hausen to join the Prince de Soubize. IRELAND. Dublin, Oct. 14. The Ferrit Privateer has taken a Vessel bound from Cork for Bourdeaux, and sent her into Bristol. We hear from Galway that, from ore Slice of a Po- tatoe, set last Spring by Mr. Simon McHoy, a Farmer at Park, near Tuam in that County, there proceeded no less than 84 Stalks, which produced 965 Potatoes. Almost prodigious Increase, and yet as true as surprising. Cork, Oct. 13. The City of Cork Privateer is arriv'd at Cove with a rich Prize of about 450 Tons, 18 Car- riage Guns, which she took in the Bay. outward bound, laden with Wine, Brandy, Flour, and Bale Goods, valued at 12,0001. COUNTRY NEWS. Newcastle, Oct. 22. So fine a Season for Winter Corn was never known in this Country ; and ' tis believed that more Wheat, & c. has been sown in this and the adjacent Counties of Durham and Cumberland, by one Half, than in former Years; a good deal of which is come up, and makes a most delightful Appearance. LONDON. [ Thursday, Oct. 27. Last Night there was a Meeting of a great Number of the Common Council, at the Half Moon Tavern; when it was resolved, that twelve Gentlemen should be desired to wait on the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, to request his Lordship to call a Court of Common Council to consi der of addressing his Majesty on the Miscarriage of the late secret Expedition. On which the Gentlemen imme diately waited on the Lord Mayor with the said Request, who desired the Gentlemen to give him the same in Wri- ting, and promised to call a Court sometime next Week. We hear the Subject for a Prize at one of our Univer sities will be. The Conquest of France by Edward III and Henry V. of England. A few Days since a certain Foreigner of Distinction ( who some Months since was had up, and examined by the Privy Council) quitted this Kingdom so suddenly as to give great Suspicion. A Ship of 74 Guns is building at Mr. Wells's Dock for his Majesty's Service, which is to be called the Shrews- bury ; and we hear there are three more building by the same Model. We hear that a Sloop is dispatched to Admiral Hol- bourne with Orders for him to meet Sir Edw. Hawke in a certain Latitude, as it's imagined the French Fleet will quit Louisbourg, to return to France, the Moment they are at Liberty. By this Means perhaps our double Force may meet with them in their Return. Another Fleet is ordered to rendezvous with all speed at Spithead, under the Command of Admiral Broderick. They write from Petersfield, that a considerable Num- ber of Land Forces employ'd in the late Expedition, who are quartered in Hampshire, are ordered to be ready to attend their Duty upon the first Notice. His Majesty's Ship Winchester, Rear- Admiral Franklin, is arrived at Plymouth from Antigua. The Winchester left that island about the 10th of September; and brings Advice, that the Martinico Fleet sailed about three Weeks before him for Old France. Letters brought by the said Ship take Notice of a vio- lent Earthquake at Barbadoes on the 29th of August, and of a Hurricane the Day after at the Leeward islands, but no great Damage was done. We hear that the People of Cape- Breton were, before the Arrival of the French Fleet in their Harbour, so much alarmed at our Preparations against them, that they sent their most Valuable Effects on board four Ships to Canada. It now indisputably appears, that the Terrible Priva- teer, the late gallant Capt. Death, having spoken with the Captain of a Dutch Vessel, soon after taking his Prize, the Skipper fell in with the Vengeance, a French Privateer, sent her in Pursuit, and shaped the Course they Some Letters from Spain assert, that a certain Day is appointed for the Sale of the Antigallican Private Ship of War, if Damages and Costs of Suit, in the late sham Trial, is not made good to the French Consul, on Behalf of the French Nation. The Mercury Man of War, Convoy to the Trade for the Sound, is come back to the Nore, having met with a violent Gale of Wind the 7th Instant on the Coast of Nor- way, in which she was obliged to throw all her Guns overboard. Four loaded Colliers, bound to Holland, were taken last Friday Mornitig by two large Privateers, about Leagues East of Leostoffe. We hear the King of Prussia has come to a Resolution to keep the Field till he has forced the Enemies to go into Winter Quarters, and this at the unanimous Request of his Troops, By a private Letter from Berlin we learn, that the Prince of Bevern has so effectually covered Breslau, that the Au- strians dare not either give him Battle, or venture upon any Siege. The King continues posted as he was ; Prince Maurice of Anhalt Dessau remains with his Body in the Neighbourhood « f Leipsick ; Prince Ferdinand of Bruns- wick at Wandsladen. A Regiment of Militia having been detached from Magdebourg, has driVen all the French Parties out of the Old March, who came there to levy Contributions. The Swedish Generals seem to be at a Stand, their Court having received no Dispatches from Petersburgh by the two last Posts, which Occasions various Speculations. We are inform'd, that at a Meeting at Southwell, near Brentford, on Wednesday last, on Account of the Militia Act, they all refused to be sworn in, till some future Bill | should provide Pay for them. We hear that the Right Hon. the Lord Edgecumbe lies very ill at his Seat at Mount Edgecumbe, occasioned by the Cutting of a Corn, which ( not being effected with- out drawing blood, and his Lordship walking much upon it, and otherwise not taking Care of it) brought on an Inflammation; and that Mr. Huxham, an eminent Phy- sician, and two Surgeons, attend him. Yesterday an Apprentice to a Watchmaker, in Frances- Court, Bartlet Street, Clerkenwell, being in Love with the Maid Servant, as a Means to bring her to Compliance, took an Opportunity of hanging himself in JEST, in her Room, as she was coming to make her Bed ; but by the Time she enter'd it the Affair was earnestly concluded and the Lad was dead. The two following melancholy Accidents happened lately at Newbury in Berkshire, viz. a Boy having Occa- sion to ease Nature, fastened his Horse's Bridle to one of his Legs, when the Horse being frighten'd by a Drove of Hog's ran away, dragg'd the Boy after him, and dashed out his Brains. The next Day another Boy taking hOme some Colts, and giving them an Opportunity of taking little Grass, fastened the leading Colt to his Wrist, when upon some sudden Fright, it gallopp'd off, and the poor Boy perished in the same miserable Manner as the former! We hear from Twickenham, that on Thursday Even ing last Mr. Perkins, a very eminent Surgeon and Apo- thecary of that PlaCe, and Lord of the Manor of Ted- dington, cut his Throat almost from Ear to Ear. ' Tis said he had been delirious for fome Time past. He is justly lamented by the Poor, ( to whom he was Very libe- ral) and by many Gentlemen and others, his Patients anf Acquaintance, Tuesday Night were taken up at a Publick House in St. Katherine's, by a King's Messenger, assitsed by Mr. Blan the Surveyor, two French Engineers, supposed to be Spies Upon searching of them, in the Lining of their Coal were found Draughts of several of our Harbours and R vers, Plans of some of our Fortifications on the Sea Coasts, finely executed, with the Number of GUNS and Weight of Metal in each fortified Plate, a Book in M/ nuscript, with their Remarks on the above ; a Scheme for Landing o( Troops where most practicable, the Names all our Men of War which went on the last Expedition with their Number of Guns, Men, and Land Forces They wire pinioned, and carried oft in a Coach for Exa- mination. They haVe bfcen eight Months in England and speak good English. It is said, they had compleate their Design, and were going for Holland. Yesterday the Sessions began at the Old Bailey, twelve Prisoners were tried, one of whom was capital convicted, Viz. Henry Clark, for robbing Mr. Parker, the Highway, near Turnham Green, of a Watch a some Money ; seven were Cast for Transportation, al four acquitted. Plymouth- Dock, Oct. 23. This Day Sir Edward Hawke with the Fleet under his Command, stood for the Soan where the Barford, Rochester, and Lizard, weigh'd a[ join'd him, and sailed again to the Westward with a f<| Gale of Wind at N- E. There are 1500 Soldiers on board Admiral Hawkes Fleet, who are to act as Marines, BERROW's Worcester Journal. ( In the last Utrecht Gazette there is the following Para- graph, dated London, Oct. 11. Admiral Hawke and Ge- neral Mordaunt attended a Council that was held Yester- day at Kensington, and gave an Account of the Circum- stances of their Expedition, with the Difficulties that pre- vented its Execution with Success. The Admiral made it appear that he had encounter'd contrary Winds to ap- proach the Coast of France, and advance to the Parts proper for forming an Attack. The General confessed, on his Side, that he had no such Obstacles to surmount, but that the Descent appear'd impracticable without great Danger in the Places where they attempted it, as the French had already come down in great Numbers to the most exposed Borders of their Coast ; were follow'd by other Corps and the Forces they were assembling would soon have been superior in Number to those employ'd to, attack them ; besides the Difficulties of landing on the Coast, especially on the Side of Rochelle and Rochefort, where the large Ships could not get near enough to cover the Debarkation ; and that all those cross Accidents had been weigh'd in a Council of War, wherein all the Of- ficers agreed, that it would have been the highest Rashness to attempt an Enterprize; the Success of which was so uncertain. SUNDAY'S and MONDAY'S POSTS. LONDON. [ Saturday, Oct. 29. N a List of Fourscore and Four Toasts, drank at a Quarterly Meeting of the Free Citizens of Dublin, met at the Phoenix Tavern in Werberg- Street on the 14th Instant, we find the following. DIsappointment to those who would lessen the Number of his Majesty's Parliaments. Spirit to the People, and Integrity to the Commons of Ireland. May the Wealth of Ire- land be expended in promo- ting the Welfare of it. May the Taxes of Ireland never be employ'd to pay Foreign Pensions. May no Man have it in his Power to influence the House of Commons. May the Commons of Ire- land ever hold the Purse of the Nation. May the Patriot Spirit of Lord Russel direct all his Descendants. That inestimable Blessing of Free Subjects, The Liberty of the Press. May Ireland be relieved . from the Necessity of send- ing their Wool to France, by a Liberty of exporting it manufactured. May the British Parlia ment ever interest itself in Support of Irish Liberty. Speedy Detection and Dis- grace to all Court Jesuits. May no Traitors to their Country escape public justice May the Enemies of Great Britain never have Cause to sing Te Deum for the safe Return of her Fleets and Armies. , May neither Power nor Artifice screen bad Ministers from publick Censure. May the EleCtors of Ire- and always exert their con stutional Right of judging of the Conduct of their Re- presentatives. The glorious King of Pruffia, and Success to him The Protestant Interest over all the World. That our Vagrants and Poor may be put under a bitter Regulation. A Parliamentary Enquiry into the Conduit of all Boards and Publick Trusts. May the free and inde pendent EleCtors of Ireland be always represented by those they chuse. May all Corruptors be despised, and Oppressors op- posed. Wisdom and Integrity to his Majesty's Counsellors ; intrepidity and Honesty to his Captains. The Friends of Liberty, and Liberty to its Friends. All those who would ra ther die in Jack Boots than live in Wooden Shoes. All those who, by wear- ing, encourage the Manu factures of Ireland. May the Enemies of Ire- land never eat its Bread. More Industry and less Pride to the People of Ire- land. Increase to the Exports, and Decrease to the Imports of Ireland. Temperance at Court and Industry in the Country. King Alfred's Sentence to all Judges who act contrary to Constitutional Rights. May his Majesty's Coun- sellors be as honest, and his Captains as brave as himself. May the Crown of these Kingdoms be ever perpetu- ated in the illustrious house of Hanover. A Free Trade to Ireland, without an Union. Honour and Honesty. Liberty to those who dare contend for it; Chains and Slavery to those who dare not May Sun shine and Good- humour be perpetual among the Free Citizens. Sum requisite for the current Service within, the Compass of the Year. ' .' This would certainly do the Business better at home ; the People would then know what they paid, and ( which must give them high Satisfaction) that it was paid ; that is, paid once for all, and not after the modern Fashion, pay- ing for what is swallow'd up in a Year World without End. It would be a Means of laying Taxes equally; for in the Way of Funding there are a certain Set of People who get much more by the Tax than they pay to it, and consequently are very unfit Judges of a Weight, which they take Care not to feel. Raising the Taxes within the Year would make the Administration, and the People too, more frugal, and have many other good Consequences, which may be enumerated upon some other Occasion. This Method of levying Money would do us more Cre- dit abroad. It would shew our Allies, if we had any, and which is of as great ConsequenceJ it would shew our Ene- mies, that we were not yet exhausted, but had still left wherewithal to defend our Colonies, to provide for our internal Safety, and to maintain the Honour of the British Flag, and our Claim to the Empire of the Sea ; and, in this Light, would do us more Credit, and more Service, than a Victory. . Most of the European Powers are so deeply employed on the present Crisis, that Couriers are continually passing from one Court to another. In the mean while some dex- trous Decypherer has found out certain Numerical Letters ( according to the Latin Text) in Jeremiah 51, Ver, 57, that tally with the Date of the present Time. The Eng lish is as follows ; And I will make drunk her and her Wisemen, her Captains and Rulers, and ber mighty Men. Rouze, Britons! Britons rouze ! Your Liberties maintain ; Exert your antient Potency On Continent and Main. The venal Tribe expel, . Maintain that high Renown, That Spirit which, in Times of old, Pull'd bare- face'd TRAITORS down. It is remarkable that a certain General, who went on a certain Expedition, made a very heroick Speech to his Men before they embark'd. " Brother Soldiers, ( said he) behave like Britons! for, in the Enterprise we are going upon, the ConfliCt will be Short, but Sharp."- one Part of his Prophecy proved true enough, for short it as ; but as to the Sharpness of it, our Prophet seems to have been a little mistaken, unless this cunning Son of Mother Shipton ambiguously alluded to the ConfliCt with the Grapes, which ( some of them not being quite ripe) proved, indeed, ( we are told) a little sharp and sour. As the Season of the Year is approaching in which very rge Supplies must be again raised for the Service of the publick, in carrying on the present War, it may not be proper to put our Great Men in Mind, that instead of ening to fine- spun Schemes, and intricate Projects, which they must know from Experience serve only to use unthinking People, and to throw a Veil, though it a thin one, over the heavy Loads that are laid upon labour and Industry, they had much better contrive to deal uadly and plainly, and by some simple Tax raise the ExtraCt of a Letter from Bath, October 26. The following Letter handed about here is a Proof that our good Patriot has held his Integrity, and that his Grief is beyond Expression on Account of the Miscarriage of the late Expedition on the French Coast. Dear Sir, I have this. Morning a Letter from Mr. P — tt, which he begins with saying that his Heart was broke. It appears, that the Consternation in France upon the Approach of our Fleet Was not to be imagined : That notwithstanding the Boast of the French, there were only 4000 regular Troops upon the whole Coast ; whereas the Number we sent was 1o, 000 That upon the Arrival of the Fleet off Rochfort, the King's own Guards were sent away by forced Marches, who however could not have ar- rived till the 1oth of this Month, at the very soonest, which would have been 16 Days after our Men ought to have landed : That the Terror was so great among the French, that the Fort we took defended itself only for 34 Minutes, th0' but two Ships, Capt. Howe and Capt. Greaves, attacked it; the Complements of which were not above a Third more than the Garrison : That notwith- standing the surprizing Success which happened on the 17th, they all agreed to come back on the 29th, without so much as attempting to land, or to execute the Orders they were sent with." Whitehall, Ocl. 29. The King has been pleased to constitute and appoint the Right Honourable Sir John Li- gonier, Knight of the Bath, to be Commander in Chief of all his Majesty's Land Forccs in Great Britain. The King has been- pleased to grant unto George Smith, of the Town and County of the Town of Nottingham, and of East Stoke in the said County, Esq; and to his Heirs Male, the Dignity of a Baronet of the Kingdom of Great Britain. London Gazette. Yesterday the agreeable News was received that a Pac- ket arrived at Falmouth last Wednesday from Lisbon, with Letters from the British Agent at that Place, dated the 13th of OCtober, which mention nothing of any Sickness then there. It seems as if no Express was arrived at Fal- mouth to stop the Communication with Lisbon before the Packet arrived there, as the Vessel was admitted into the Harbour, and the Bag forwarded, as usual, as far as Staines, where it was stopt, and last Night some Gentle- men belonging to the Post Office set out for Staines, by Order of the Poltmaster- General, to open the Mail there. The Lisbon Mail arrived at the Post Office this Afternoon at Three o'Clock, and.' twas thought the Letters would be deliver'd this Evening The Bags were burnt at Staines. By a Statute lately made for preventing Clandestice Marriages in the Isle of Man, amongst other Things it is enaCted, " That if a Marriage shall be solemnized in any other Place within the Isle or Dominion thereof, than in a Church, unless by special Licence, or without having Banns published, or Licence obtained of some Person pro perly authorized, the Marriage shall be void ; and the Person who solemnized it, if he lawfully exercises any ministerial Function within the Isle, shall be transported for 14 Years|; and if he be a Foreigner, Stranger, and not of the Ministry of the Isle, he is to be exposed with his Ears nailed to a Pillory on the next Court Day of General Gaol Delivery after ConviCtion, from twelve to one o'Clock, and his Ears are to be cut off, and he re- turned to Prison, until the Governor shall think fit to re- lease him, on his paying a Fine not exceeding 501." Yesterday Admiral Frankland arrived in Town from Plymouth. We hear that his Majesty and the Royal Family will remove from Kensington to St. James's on Tuesday the 8th of November Their Royal Highnesses the Prince or Wales, Princess Dowager of Wales; and the Royal Family, came to Leicester and Saviile Houses from Kew this Day for th « Winter. - It is said Application has been made to persuade a ( cer- tain great Person to resume the Posts he has resigned, but hitherto to no Purpose. His Royal Highness Prince Edward is appointed Colo- nel of the First Regiment of Foot- GuardS. A Scheme for Two Lotteries is on Foot for the Use of the Sufferers by Fire at Bridge Town, in the Island of Barbadoes, Feb. 8, 1757 ; the first to be drawn in Fe- bruary next, and the second within Six Months after. Both Lotteries are to consist of 20, ooo Tickets, at 3 I. 1 o s. each; ' Fifteen per Cent', is to be deducted out of the Prizes, for the Benefit of the Sufferers; The highest Prize 150ol.' and Three Blanks only to a Prize. Two Hundred Pounds are given by a Gentleman of Barbadoes, to rebuild the Quakers' Meeting House in that Island; and the like Sum for purchasing religious Books written by Quakers, to be dispersed in it. We learn, by some Letters from New England, that Lord Loudon, with his Forces, was daily expected to join 6000 Men under General Webb, which together will make up a Body of 13,000 regular Troops, to oppose the French under General Montcalm, who was arrived, with a large Train of Artillery, within a small Distance of Fort Edward. By Letters from Antigua, brought by the Ship of War lately arrived from thence, there is Advice, that John Moore, Esq;. Commodore of his Majesty's Fleet on the Caribbee Station, on his first Day's Cruize took a large French Privateer, and carried her into Antigua. — A few more such vigilant Officers would soon destroy the nu- merous Swarn of French Privateers which have infested each of the Leeward Islands, ever since the Commence- ment of the War. The General Assembly of that Island have given him the Thanks of that House for his great Vigilance on that Station, and have voted him a Present of 100 Pistoles to purchase him a Sword. We hear that a general Cartel, for the Exchange of Prisoners of War, is soon to be agreed on between the Courts of Great Britain and France. We hear by an Officer who lately belonged to the Shark Privateer, and who has come from Bayonne, that the Day he came from thence 26 Privateers sailed with them. The Blandford Man of War, of twenty Guns. Capt. Penhallow Cummin, has taken two stout French Priva- teers who were cruizing to the Windward of Barbadoes. The Eagle Privateer has taken a Dutch Ship laden with 636 Hhds. of Sugar, 15,0001b. of Indigo, rj Cwt. of Coffee, and some Bales of Cotton', from St. Domingo. A Spanish Snow with French Goods iS likewise taken : Asd a Ship from Martinico is carried into Bristol. The Tartar Privateer [ has taken an outward bound Sf.' Domingo Man, and font her into Baltimore, '. The Bellona Privateer has carried into Milford Haven a Spanilh Brig, laden with East India Goods, bound to France. We hear from Halifax, in Yorkshire, that the Militia for the Division of Morley, consisting of 235 Men, were enrolled thereon the 5th and 19th Inst. with the greatest Order and Chearfulness. The principal Inhabitants [ in each Township, well convinced of the Utility of a good Militia, explained the Act to the People, and many of them attended the Deputy Lieutenants when they enrolled. A Number of Persons offered themselves as Substitutes, and the People in general seem to be well satisfied that they have now an Opportunity of learning the Military Exer- cise, and being thereby enabled to defend their King, their Country, and themselves. We have Accounts from Leeds in Yorkshire of the great Increase of the Woollen Manufacture in those Parts, there being at this Time a greater Demand for their Cloth, and a greater Number of Hands employ'd in the Manufac- ture, than has been known for many Years. On Wednesday last died at Astrop, in the County of Northampton, the Lady Willes, Wife of the Lord Chief Justice Willes; who was an exceeding good Woman, and who was much beloved, and universally esteem'd, by every one that knew her. Last Night the Wife of John Burrish, a Gardener, of Battersea, was brought to bed of four Children ; she was delivered of three Children about ten Months since, so that she has been deliver'd of seven Children within one Year. We hear a Man was attempted to be secured on Mon- day at Greenwich, on a strong Suspicion of his designing to blow up the Magazine of Gunpowder there i but being; told there were some People searching for him, he had left the Place. On Thursday Night a Servant Maid at the Sign of the Duke of Cumberland's Head in Long Lane, South- wark, being chastised for getting drunk, went up Stairs, cut the main Artery of her Arm. and was very near bleeding to Death, before she was discover'd. An ACCIDENT. Two Journeymen Taylors in the Hundreds of Essex, purchased a Ticket between them in the late Lottery, which, unluckily for thtm, proved to be one of the Ten Thousand Pounds; one of them has since kill'd himself with excessive Drinking, and the other is likely to make a Trip the same Road. Portsmouth, Oct. z8. Letters from. Admirals Hawke and Boscawen's Fleet mention their arriving safe off Ply- mouth Sound on Sunday Noon, where they were waiting to be joined by the other Ships from thence. The Fleet is to consist of 23 Sail of the Line, 11 Frigates, and 4 Cutters. Admiral Hawke is to have 11 Sail, and Admi- ral Boscawen 11. We hear from the West, that they are terribly alarmed with the Thoughts of an Invasion, tho' from what Place is not known, but the Invaders are not to be less than 100,000.—— A Gentleman writes, r that he thought to have spent the Winter in a great deal of Pleasure, as they have full Assemblies already, and the Players are daily expeCted, but the Thought of an Invasion is always up- permost,. Yesterday the Sessions ended at the Old Bailey, when 13 Prisoners were tried, seven of whom were cast for Transportation, and six acquitted. At this Sessions one received Sentence of Death, and 14 were cast for Trans- portation for seven Years. THE Creditors of the Rev. Mr. Charles Willmot, late of Bromsgrove, in the County of Worcester, deceas'd, are desired to meet at the Golden Cross, in Bromsgrove, on Monday the 21st Day of this Instant November, by Ten o'Clock in the Morning, to prove their Debts, and receive their Dividends.

PeTErsBoUrg, September 23. YEsterday the Empress returned in perfeCt Health from Czarka Zelo : The Report of her being dangerously ill, and seized with an Apoplec- tick Fit, is void of all Foundation. Paris, Oct. 17. It daily appears more cer- tain, that Overtures are made for restoring Peace to Ger- many ; but it is no less certain that the King will acquiesce in no Measures on this SubjeCt without the Consent and Approbation of his august Ally the Empress Queen. Utrecht Gazette. Paris, Oct. 18. We receive from Germany and dis- patch thither a great Number of Couriers. Their Dis- patches, we presume, are relative to the Motives that suspend the Operations of our Armies ; and we farther presume that these Motives are nothing else but some Pro- posals made by a neutral Power for a Suspenfion of Arms in the Empire.- Amsterdam Gazette. Hague. Oct. 23. Of late we perceive that the Au- strian, French, British, and Pruflian Ministers, confer fre- quently in private with the principal Members of the Go- vernment.

[ Tuesday, Nov. 1 Yesterday there was a great Council at Kensington, Affairs of Importance. This Morning there was a Report, ( which seem'd have too much Reason to be credited, from whence it was heard) that Admiral Holbourne's Squadron had met with a violent Storm off Louisbourg, which had shatter'd his Fleet very much ; some say seven or eight Ships are dis- masted, and one entirely lost. We are assured that the Portugueze Ambassador de- clares, that there is no Plague broke out at Lisbon ; and that such Report was a Scheme of the, French to carry on some Project they had in View. Last Night, about Seven o'Clock, Orders were sent to the Secretary of the Post Office to deliver the Letters di- reCtly that came in the Lisbon Mail. And This Morning Notice was fix'd up at the General Post Office, that Letters for Lisbon would be taken in this Evening as usual. Last Week several Hanoverian Families arived in Town from Stade, having removed hither to secure their Effects. LETTER from Chatham, dated 03 30. It is said that many- of the Hessisan and Hanoverian Officers, who embark'd from hence in February last, have wrote Letters to several Young Ladies of this Town and of Rochester, express'd in very polite and genteel Terms, complimenting them with their being the most accom- plish'd and agreeable Ladies they had the Pleasure of con- vening with during their Stay in England, and that the Beauties of Winchester, Salisbury, Canterbury, Maid- stone, Sec. are by no Means to be put in Competition with them; and, after saying many fine Things in their Fa- vour, they conclude their Letters with making Apologies for their Behaviour in turning their Backs on the French, who were pursuing Men without Hearts',— for, ( as the Old English Song says,) " What Resistance could they find " From Men who had left their HEARTS behind" cOnsisting of a Dwelling house, Bake- house, Malt- , house, Barn, Stable, and other Out Buildings there- into belonging, al! in good Repair, with an Orchard and ard ; the Whole situate in the Newland, . in Pershore, in | ie County of Worcester.

For further Particulars enquire of Mr. Dandridge, Attorney, in Worcester. It is now beyond a Doubt, that, to whose Charge soever the Inactivity of our Forces in the late Expedition may be laid, an effectual Method will be taken to sift the Mat- ter to the Bottom in the most unexceptionable, impartial, and solemn Manner, and that the strong Antipathy of Good and Bad will never suffer convicted Cowards or J Knaves to pass unpunish'd. We hear from the best Authority, that a publick and general Enquiry into the ConduCt of the late Expedition has been applied for by the Commander in Chief of the Land Forces employed upon that Service. It is said the City of London will certainly address his Majesty, for an Enquiry to be made into the Miscarriage of the late secret Expedition. On Sunday died, at his Seat at Nacton, in Suffolk, Ed- ward Vernon, Esq; Member of Parliament for Ipswich, and a few Years since Vice- Admiral of the Blue, when he fo greatly distinguish'd himself by taking Porto Bello, & c. After the Affair of Porto Bello, he took Chagre, and continued in his Majesty's Service until the Year 1748, when several Matters which had passed between the Lords of the Admiralty and Mr. Vernon, being laid before his Majesty, he was struck off the Lift of Flag- Officers. Every honest Heart must sympathize in such a publick Loss , on which to expatiate will be needless. The Ene- mies of Great Britain can give Proofs of his Courage, and Knowledge in Naval Affairs; and every Sailor, who serv'd under him, can bear Witness of the Excellence of his Dis- cipline, and of his Humanity. His Courage and Huma- nity could be equalled only by his Honesty, which was inflexible, and by the Love of his Country, which was unwearied. This fully possessed him ; this dictated all his Counsels, and directed all his Actions. The Ketch Ranger Privateer has taken a Vessel bound from Nantz to Morlaix, and sent her into Kingroad. We hear from Leominster, In Herefordshire, that as some Labourers were digging up the Roots of a Parcel of large Trees which had been felled in Eaton Coppice, near that Town, one of the Men discover'd a small Earthern Pot, covered on the Top with a Plate of Lead, in which were about 160 Pieces of Gold and Silver Coin, some of them King John's.—— Gen.

And it is reported that Vice Admiral Knowles will sail to relieve Admiral Osborne there *' Extract of a Letter from Capt. John Keld, in the Neptune, of Scarborough, dated Portsmouth, October 30. " About Eight o'Clock on Friday Morning, the Needles bearing N. by E. three Leagues, we saw a Sail standing in for the Needles by the Wind ( we having then a Sloop just astern) when he was nigh our Wake stood after us, which gave me some Suspicion that he was no Friend; I soon saw that he was a Lug Sail Shallop, of about 50 or 60 Tons, and, as near as I and my People could well guefs, had about 50 Men, therefore 1 got ready, hoisted my Ensign and Pendant and fired a Gun, to shew that I was prepared to receive him ; upon which he fired two Guns, and the Sloop a- stern immediately brought- to, and struck, they boarded her, and steered for France, and she continued her Chace, and renewed her firing with Chace Guns and Small Arms, which Compliment we return'd in the best Manner that five Swivel Guns ( one of which soon broke off at the Swivel, and took fome Time to re-, place him) and a few Small Arms Would permit us, from our Quarter Deck and Cabbin Windows, still keeping our Course up the Island, giving him now and ti. en three Cheers ( which was answer'd by the People from the Shore ) from behind our Quarter- Cloths, which daunted them much, because they could not see us, or judge our Num- ber, which was only five Men, four Boys, end two Wo- men; both the Women, when they began to smell tho Perfume of the Powder, behaved with equal Courage to the Men, and were quite dexterous at loading the Mus- quetry One of them had her Husband on board ( a Pas- senger too) who behaved as well as his Wife, and the other, Mrs. Osborne, whose Husband is Master of the Dolphin, just failed from Plymouth. I think ' tis pity they should be parted ; not that I would have the present Captain of the Dolphin put out, for I think she would make an excellent Commander. During the Action she cal- led to the People to know when they would have a Dram, and handed them the Bottle to drink round, which gave them great Spirits, and at last they sheered off, after three Hours running Fight, and but one of my Men wounded, and Rigging much damaged.", Oxford, Oct. 29. A few Days ago a Fille de Joye, who had assumed the Dignity of being Daughter to a Person of Fortune and Distinction, having taken Lodgings in this City near Christ Church College, pretended to be ill, and desired a Physician might be fent for; the nearest Physi- cian was accordingly called in, to whom she open'd her Cafe, and the DoCtor prescribed ; but the young Lady having had the Misfortune to leave her Portmanteau be- hind, and being in Want of Cash as well as Physick, the DoCtor most generously relieved her Distress by advancing ten Guineas, besides sending in a Quantity of Wine : But after three or four Days she suddenly disappeared without the usual Ceremony with her DoCtor, or taking the least Notice of the advanced Sum.

To the Printer of the WORCESTER JOURNAL. SIR, Nov. 1, 1757. BY inserting the following Lines in your next Paper you'll oblige Your humble Servant, & c. To the Memory of the late Mrs. BIDDLE, of Evesham, who departed this Life Oct. 26, 1757 Who was unaffectedly pious; truly virtuous; eminently meek and dispassionate ; soft and gentle in her Man- ners ; of an extensive and charitable Disposition ; of a prudent, inoffensive, and peaceable Behaviour ; and bless'd with an uncommon Benignity and Sweetness of Temper, which was gracefully display'd in many humane and friendly Offices, and shone with a peculiar Lustre in every Part of her private and social Character. As her Life was greatly desir'd, fo her Death is much lamented by all that knew her, and by those, efpecially, who had any moral Taste and Discernment the Beauties of her Mind being no less amiable than those of her Person. But now, alas! the lovely Form is fled. And turn'd to common Dust, amongst the Dead. But Chrift th' appointed Judge, God's first- born Son, Shall raise it new, and frame it like his own. The Day of God alone, that bright A NEW SONG. I. YOU may tell us that Edward the Third conquer'd France, And that Harry the Fifth taught the Natives to dance ; Shall I give you the Reason ?

Happy Days ! — still in Fancy they charm us, tho' over, We were Englishmen once, and knew nought of ******* Derry down, & c. The HERALD. AT Length our impenetrable Secret hath unfolded itself A Fleet of Eighty- two Sail, in which were Eighteen capital Ships, all well- manned and provi- ded ; with ten compleat Regiments and other detached Companies, besides Marines ; a Power ( with less than which our brave Ancestors have, heretofore, ravaged the whole Kingdom of France) so adequate to a great Under- taking, to go forth, as they did, with Shouts and Accla- mations, only to sneak back again with the Infamy of Impotence, the Disgrace of Dastardy ! in not daring to hazard a manly Attempt for their own Glory, or a Patriot Service to their King and Country. O melancholy, mortifying Reflection : O Britain ! fallen from thy Eminence of Renown, how dost thou grovel in Dishonour ! how accomodate thyself to Ignominy ! how art thou hardened against Reproach, and t0 every Feeling and Sense of Shame ? .... Thus finished the tremendous Expedition, which for several preceding Months had excited the Attention of all Europe; and which had made our Nation happy in the Hopes of a speedy Termination of the War by an honourable Peace, influenced by our striking a Terror into France, from a Desolation of her Ports and Marines. .... If the Attack of Rochfort was found impracticable, which Letters since received from France represent not to have been the Case, could no Hen- Roost on any Part of the Continent be robbed ? No Fortification be cannonaded ? No Town bombarded ? No Island be taken, ravaged, or even landed upon, except poor despicable Aix ? though but merely to save Appearances, and preserve our Coun- cils and Arms from sullying Ignominy and grating Con- tempt. .. ? What have we once been ! and what are we now be- came ! Who can make the disgraceful Comparison of Us with our Forefathers without blushing ? Our brave An- cestors never went forth but to conquer; we, never but to miscarry or be defeated ! Nor need we rummage the Re- cords of Aniquity to take Shame to ourselves, the Ac- tions of our very Fathers sufficiently reproach our De- generacy. Who needs be inform'd of the stubborn Sea Engage- ment between Us and the Dutch, no longer ago than in the Reign of Charles the Second ? When Battles were fought till both Fleets were disabled, which alike lay- to, to refit, and then recommenced the Engagement. The circumambient Air seem'd on Fire ! and the very Waters they floated upon appeared tinged with Blood ! And what were our Land- Engagements, even so late as those fought by the Duke of Marlborough and his Generals, but every one to obtain a compleat, a glorious ViCtory ? Can we assign the Causes of the great Changes that we behold in ourselves ? Or shall we ask and believe them from our Foes ? Alas, the Account published of our last impotent Expedition verifies the Assertion Marshal Bellisle is said to have made when among us; which was, That if their Officers by Land and Sea had our Men to command, they would speedily subdue the whole World. How powerful and expensive have been the Arma- ments, which we have this Year sent forth, and how in- effectual the Service of them all ? With a vast Land and Sea Force in North America, nothing has been done. And with the Odds of Twenty Inhabitants to One against the French on our Continent, out Forts are taken, the Out- Settlements of our Colonies continually ravaged, and the whole Body of every one of them kept in perpetual Ter- ror and Alarm ! That this can be owing to any other Caufe than a superior Wifdom in directing or conducting ths Military Operations of our Enemies, is impossible. Either our Estimates of the Power of France in those Parts are erroneous, or there must be a miserable Defect of Abilities in those who have the Management of our own. It is incredible that the French should have kept strong Garrisons in Cape Breton and the rest of their Forts, and marched fo large an Army to the Attack of Fort William Henry, which they have taken from us and destroy'd, without leaving Quebeck so ill defended as to have rendered it an easy Conquest for the great Force Lord Loudon and Admiral Holbourn had assembled at Halifax to no Purpose. Were their Operations limited to a single ObjeCt likewise ? and could no Stratagem be laid for forcing the Foe to an ACtion, or Offering the Loss of some important Possession ? It is impossible to allow ; The most implicit and resign'd Faith can never assent to it.-..... Which ever Way our unhappy Nation looks, the Pro- speCt to be encounter'd is melancholy and afflicting. Our Arms are either inactive or unsuccessful every where. His Majesty's foreign Dominions have been over run, and a Bridle may thereby, perhaps, be put into our Mouths. Our good Allies, whom we have been beggaring ourselves for an Age past to bribe into Friendship for us, are all now turned against us, or are ruined. We have but one aCtive Ally left, and, if possible, he is in a worse Plight than ourselves. The neutral Powers, as they affeCt to call themselves, who are looking on, are said to restrain us in some Operations; which, if so, is like tying up our Hands while our Enemy is buffeting us. All in general are pluck- ing at our Commerce, from whence our Strength must be derived ; and under a Necessity of favouring their Schemes by yearly burthening it more, for encreasing Supplies. In such a deplorable Situation, one Circumstance of Consola tion only presents itself to great Minds, which is. That a whole Cargo of Italian Singers, Fidlers, and Dancers, are all, just now, safely and happily arrived Factions in our Colonies, and Divisions at Home. . . . What is to be said, what can be done for our Extrication from Dangers and Difficulties? To be supine and re- signed, is immediately to sacrifice all our Rights, Inde- pendency, ourselves and our Posterity. What therefore our Courage and Resolution cannot accomplish, we must rouse ourselves with the Efforts of Despair to atchieve ; or every Thing we hold precious, or should deem valuable, is gone. Let Pensioners be, then, detested, Fools despised, Plunderers made to disgorge their Booty, and Cowards be publickly hooted at and punished. Let us be rigorous in the ExaCtion of Justice on our Betrayers; and .... Satis- faCtion required for this last and greatest Dishonour that has yet been brought upon our Nation. From the CITIZEN.
