iv ( LONdON.) From S A T U R DAY MONDAY, October .27. From the LONDON GAZETTE, Whitehall, October 26, 1760. YEsterday in the morning, between the hours of seven and eight, our late most gracious Sovereign King George the Second was suddenly seized, at his palace at Kensing- ton, by a violent disorder, and fell down speechless, and soon expired, notwithstanding all pos- sible methods used for his reco- very. His Majesty departed this life in the 77th year of his age, and the 34th of his reign ; beloved, honoured, and regetted by his subjects for his eminent and royal virtues. Whereupon the Lords of the Privy Council assembling at Carleton House, gave order for proclaiming his present Ma- jesty, who made a most gracious declaration to them, and caused all the Lords and others of the late King's Privy- Council, to be sworn of his Majesty's Privy Council. _ And this day, about noon, his Majesty was proclaimed, first before Saville- House, where the Officers of State, No- bility, and Privy Counsellors, were present, with the Offi- cers of Arms, all being on foot: Then the Officers of Arms, being mounted on horseback, the like was done at Charing Cross; within Temple- Bar; at the end of Wood- street in Cheapside ; and lastly, at the Royal Exchange, with the usual solemnities; the principal Officers of State, a great number of the Nobility, and of other persons of DistinC- tion, attending during the whole ceremony. WHEREAS it has pleased Almighty God, to call to His Mercy our late Sovereign Lord King George the Second, of blessed Memory, by whose Decease the Imperial Crowns of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, are solely and rightfully come to the High and Mighty Prince George Prince of Wales; We therefore the Lords Spiritual and Temporal of this Realm, being here assisted with these of His late Majesty's Privy C0uncil, with numbers of other principal Gentlemen of Quality, with the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Citizens of London, do now hereby, with one voice and consent of tongue and heart, publish and proclaim , That the High and Mighty Prince, George Prince of Wales, is now, by the death of our late Sovereign, of happy memory, become our only lawful and rightful Liege Lord George the Third, by the Grace of God, King of Great Britain, France, and In land, Defender of the Faith, and so forth: to whom we do acknowledge all faith and constant obedience with all hearty and humble affection, beseeching God, by whom Kings and Queens do reign, to bless the Royal Prince George the Third with long and happy years to reign over us. Given at the Court at Carleton- house, this twenty- fifth day of October, 1760. GOD save the KING. most gracious declaration to their Lordships might be made publick ; which His Majesty was pleased to order accordingly. F. VERNON. At the court at Carleton- House, the 25th day of October, 1760. PRESENT, The KING's most Excellent Majesty, His Royal Highness the Duke Viscount Falmouth of Cumberland Archbishop of Canterbury Duke of Leeds Duke of Newcastle Earl of Holdernesse Earl of Cholmondeley Earl Waldegrave Earl Gower Viscount Barrington Viscount Ligonier Lord Anson Lord Mansfield Mr. Vice Chamberlain Mr. Secretary Pitt Henry Fox, Esq; Sir Thomas Robinson order to the Electoral Prince, and invest him therewith. Mr. Vanbrug arrived at Hanover on the 29th day of May, O. S. but the Lord Hallifax reached there a week sooner, being commissioned to present to her Royal Highness the Princess Sophia, an act of parliament for the better securing the suc- cession in the protestant line. On the thirty- first day of May the Commissioners had their first audience of his Highness the Electoral Prince, who af- terwards received the greater and letter George; and on the second day of June following his Highness was invested with the whole habit and ensigns of the order. After which he was pleased to declare how sensible he was of the great ho- nour her Majesty the Queen of England had done him, in sending him the order ; and that he should endeavour and make it his constant study to merit her Majesty's esteem and ( favour. However he was not installed at Windsor till the 22d day of December 1710, when the Dukes of Devonshire . and Argyle were installed knights companions of this most noble order. The Lord Hallifax was proxy for his Electoral Highness. Queen Anne, before the end of the same year ( 1706) as a WILLIAM Tho. Cant.

Cottrell farther testimony of her royal favour to his most Serene Highness the Electoral Prince, was graciously pleased by her letters patent under the great seal of England, bearing date at Westminster the ninth day of November, to create him a Duke, Marquis, Earl, . Viscount, and Baron of England, by the titles of Duke and Marquis of Cambridge, Earl of Mil- ford- Haven, Viscount Northallerton, and Baron of Tewks- bury.— It was observed by some friends of his Highness, even at that time, that it was a defect to give him the peerage of England, and not the precedency of all other peers. In the year 1708 he resolved to distinguish himself in arms, and imitate the valour and heroic actions of his illu- strious father and ancestors; and accordingly set out a vo- lunteer to make a campaign in the Netherlands, under the eye of the famous John Duke of Marlborough. On the twerty- second day of June he arrived at the camp, and was received with the greatest marks of respect and distinction by all the general officers. On the eleventh day of July following the battle of Ou- denard was fought, in which his Electoral Highness putting himself at the head of a squadron of Hanoverian dragoons commanded by Lieutenant- General Bulow, charged the enemy sword in hand with the greatest intrepidity. His horse was killed under him, and Colonel Luschky, who com- manded the squadron, bravely fighting by him. Queen Anne dying on the 1st of August 1714 in the morn- ing, the privy council met, and orders were immediately is- sued for proclaiming George Lewis, Elector of Hanover, her successor in England, Scotland and Ireland. The Duke of Dorset was dispatched by the regency to Hanover, to inform his Majesty of his accession to the throne, and ordered to at- tend him on his journey to London. King George ascended the throne of Great- Britain, in the fifty- fifth yesr of his age, without the least opposition, tumult, or sign of popular dis- content; and the unprejudiced part of the nation was now fully persuaded that no design had ever been concerted by Queen Anne , in favour of the Pretender, In a few days, orders were brought from Hanover to the Regency, to pre- pare a patent for creating the Electoral Prince, George Au- gustus, Prince of Wales. We shall pass over the particulars of his reign, in order to speak of its conclusion. On the third day of June, 1727, his Majesty having ap- pointed a regency, embarked at Greenwich, in order to visit At the court at Carleton House, the 25th day of October 1760. PRESENT, The KING'S Most Excellent Majesty in Council. His Majesty being this day present in Council was pleased to make the following declaration, viz. THE loss that I and the nation have sustained by the death OF the King my grandfather, would have been severely felt at any time, but coming at so critical a juncture, and so un- expected, it is by many circumstances augmented, and the weight now falling upon me much encreased ; I feel my own inefficiency to support it as I wish ; but animated by the tenderest affection for this my native country, and depending on the advice, experience and abilities of your Lordships, on the support and assistance of every honest man, I enter with cheerfulness into this arduous situation, and shall make it the business of my life to promote, in every thing, the glory and happiness of these kingdoms, to preserve and strengthen both the constitution in church and state; and as I mount the throne in the midst of an expensive, but just and necessary war, I shall endeavour to proscute it in the man- ner the most likely to bring on an honourable and lasting . peace, in concert with my allies. Whereupon the lords of the Council made it their humble request to his Majesty, that this His Majesty's His Maiesty, at his first coming into the Council, was this Day pleased to declare, that understanding that the law re- quires he should, at his accession to the Crown, take and subscribe the oath relating to the security of the Church of Scotland, he was now ready to do it this first opportunity ; which His Majesty was graciously pleafed to do according to the forms used by the Law of Scotland, and subscribed two instruments thereof in the presence of the Lords of the Council, who witnessed the same ; and His Majesty was plea- sed to order, that one of the said instruments be transmitted to the Court of Session to be recorded in the books of Sede- runt, and afterwards to be forthwith lodged in the Publick Register of Scotland. And that the other of them remain among the records of the Council, and be entered in the Council book. A succinct account of the LIFE and FAMILY of our late Most August and Most Sacred Sovereign GEORGE the Second, King of Great Britain, France and Ireland, & c. & c. KING James the First of England and Sixth of Scot- land of that name, was married in the year 1589 to Anne, daughter of Frederic II. King of Denmark, by whom he had issue three sons and four daughters ; but they ail died, except his successor King Charles I. and Elizabeth, who mar- ried Frederic V. Count Palatine of the Rhine, elected to the throne of Bohemia which he never possessed. The successor of Charles the First to the English throne, were his sons Charles the Second, and after him James the Second, who absconding from the dignity he undeservedly en- joyed, the throne was filled by the Prince of Orange, by the name of William the Third, in conjunction with his con- sort Mary, daughter of King James the Second. These dying without issue the crown devolved upon Anne, Mary's sister, who surviving all her children, the title of Sovereign of these kingdoms was transmitted to George- Lewis, the first Elector of Hanover, not only as the next Protestant heir, but by several acts of parliament made for securing the Protestant succession, in the reigns of William and Anne. He was son to Ernest- Augustus Elector of Brunswick, Duke of Hanover and Bishop of Osnabrug Elect, and the Princess Sophia daughter of Frederic V. Count Palatinc Of the Rhine and Titular King of Bohemia, by the PrinCess Elisa- beth, the only surviving daughter of King James the First of England. Thus came the Electoral House of Hanover to the British throne. George Lewis, first Elector of Hanover and first King of England of that name, was succeeded by his first son George- Augustus, who was then Prince of Wales, and lately our Most Gracious Sovereign The most particular account of circumstances preceding the birth of our late King we find thus related in Imhoff's Notitia Genealogica Germanici Imperii: When George- Lewis was about the twenty- second year of his age, his father Ernest- Augustus thought it high time to marry him. Considering that the Duke of Zell his own elder brother had but one daughter, named Sophia- Dorothy, or, as the Germans have it, Dorothea, who was conse- quently heiress to his title and estate, he thought it most ex- pedient to unite and aggrandize his family, therefore a mar- riage was celebrated between them on the twenty second day of November 1682; New Style, with great joy and so- lemnity. Hence came the Electors of hanover to enjoy the title of Duke of Zell. In the summer of the year 1681 M. Gourville, the French Minister at the court of the Duke of Hanover, proposed a match between his son and Made- moiselle, daughter to the Duke ef Orleans, by virtue of an order from his Master Louis XIV. who knew that the British parliament intended, in case King William and Queen Anne died without issue, to place the crown of England on the head of the eldest son of the house of Hanover; and there- fore determined, if possible, to prevent it: but his offer being rejected, his whole scheme was rendered abortive. Imhoff furnishes us with an anecdote. which is not to be found in any other German writer; but he mentions it in three places. He says that the Prince: s Sophia- Dorothy was betrothed to Augustus- Frederic, Prince of Wolfenbuttle, in the year 1675, when she was only about nine years of age. The first issue of George- Lewis was a son ( our late King) born on the tenth day of November 1683, new stile, and was baptized by the name of George Augustus. Towards the end of January 1698, his own grandfather died; and he, in consequence, became Electoral Prince of Brunswic- Lunenburg. The year following, he, accompanied by his uncle, and grandfather the Duke of Zell, waited on King William the third at Leo, who received him with the caresses and fondness of a parent; nor was he lest condes- cending in paying his duty and respect to a Prince of his character and rank. On the fourth day of April 1706, O. S. he was elected a knight- companion of the most noble order of the garter: whereupon the Queen ( Anne) issued her commission under the great seal of the order, bearing date the 2zd day of the same month, and constituted the Right Honourable Charles Montague Lord Hallifax, and John Vanbrug, Esq Claren. cieux King at Arms, to carry the- habit and ensigns of the his Electoral dominions; and landing in Holland on the seventh, set out on his journey to Hanover. But on the ninth, between Delden and Nordhoon, he was suddenly seized with a paralytic disorder in his coach; and notwith- standing all the assistanCe of his physicians, he lost the faculty of speech, and became lethargic. He was conveyed in a state of insensibility, to the palace of his brother, the Duke of York, at Osnabrug, where he arrived about ten o'clock at night; and about one in the morning of the eleventh, he ex- pired, in the sixty- eighth year of his age, and thirteenth of his reign. On the fourteenth, this melancholy news arrived in Eng- land, whereupon the Lords of the Privy Council, assembling at Leicester- house, gave orders for proclaiming his son George, Prince of Wales, King of England : which was done about ten o'clock in the morning of the next day ; first, in the court before Leicester- house, where the officers of state, nobility and privy counsellors, were present, with the officers of arms, all on foot. Then the officers of arms mounted their horses, and the same was done in Leicester- square, at Charing- cross, within Temple bar, at the end of Wood- street, in Cheapside, and lastly, at the Royal- Ex- change, with the usual solemnities; the principal officers of state, a great number of the nobility, and other persons Of distinction, attended during the whole ceremony. On the nineteenth he was proclaimed in Scotland and Ire- land, with the usual formalites, and every public demon- stration of joy. On Wednesday the 11th day of October 1717, ( O. S ) his Majesty was crowned in Westminster- abbey, with his royal con- fort the Princess Carolina Wilhelmina Dorothea, daughter of John Frederic, Margrave of Brandenburg- Anspach, and of Erdmouth- Louisa, daughter of George Duke of Saxe- Eise- nach, and of Janet Countess of Sayne, to whom he was married on the 22d day of June, 1705. The transactions of his reign will shine with conspicuous lustre in the annals of Great- Britain. ' The afflicting loss of his Majesty is justly And deeply regretted by all his subjects, who regarded him as their common parent, nor had any Monarch ever received from his people greater or more chearful tokens of their attach merit to his government or affection for his person, demon strable in the heartfelt grief which this event produced in every countenance. . His Majesty as a man, inherited all those virtues which would have adorned the most amiable character in private Iff Wi 1 life i as a Prince, he enjoyed all those royal qualities, which whilst they reflected honour on his own dignity, may be said to have formed a pattern for the imitation of every other King. The splendor with which his sun has set, the glorious fruits which his fostering care has produced, together with his zeal and success for the welfare and liberties of mankind, and that distinguished mercy with which all his acts were tempered, will be a copious and lasting theme for the exercise of future historians.

Extract of a Letter from on board tht Duke man of war, in Quiberon Bay, Oct. 11. " Notwithstanding our diligence in watching the transports and merchant- ships, which are in the harbour of Morbieu, we are afraid it will be but to little purpose, as three or four of them are lately come out under Spa- nish colours, with false passes ; and in the present situa- tion of things we could not molest them. " We have intelligence that there are five ships of the line, and three frigates, fitting out at Brest. " The French ships of war in the river Vilaine have not yet found an opportunity of getting out, being nar- rowly watched by the Edgar, Prince Frederick, Bedford, and Intrepide. " Remain in the Bay his Majesty's ships Royal George, Sir Edward Hawke ; Sandwich, Admiral Geary ; Prince, Union, Duke, Conqueror, Florentine, and the Southampton and Adventure frigates. " P. S. The Sandwich and Conqueror are getting under sail." Extract of a Letter from Portsmouth, Oct. 25. " Thursday night put back to St. Helen's the Not- tingham man of war, Admiral Rodney. " Yesterday arrived at Spithead his Majesty's ship Sandwich, Admiral Geary, from the Bay. At the same time came up the Alderney man of war from Dublin, with the Lion transport from ditto. Came into the harbour the Seahorse, Capt. Smith, and Basilisk, Capt. Clarke. Sailed out of the harbour the Porcupine, Capt. Keller. " Sailed out of the harbour the Ashling, Killick, for Hull." Extract of a letter front Nantz, to the Commandant of Belleisle, taken in a French passage boat by one of our cruizers, Oct. 1, 1760. " I have peremptorily refused the offer made me of seeing a financier, as the distresses of the people are in- expressible; and I would not even remotely be the means of aggravating their misery, which occasions the loudest clamours for peace The inhabitants had great hopes that the success of Marshal Broglio's army would have brought about that blessed event, but these expeditions are greatly impaired by the disagreement among our Generals, against several of whom Broglio has wrote, and they in their turn have accused the General, which gives infinite anxiety at Versailles, and terrifies the whole nation for the consequences of their ill- timed quarrels." The Rev. Mr. Howdell, late Chaplain of his Ma- jesty's ship the Defiance, is promoted to be Chaplain of the Dragon, of 74 guns ; and Mr. Lowther, late Chaplain of the Louisa, to be Chaplain of the Conqueror, of 70 guns.

Court has received the melancholy news , that the city of Berlin surrendered to the Austrian and Russian combined armies, by capitulation on the 9th instant } and that the garrison consisting of three defective battalions, were made prisoners of war. As yet we have not got the particulars of the articles of the capitulation. Hamburgh, October 14. It is certain that Berlin sur- rendered the 9th instant. According to some advices received from Brandenburgh we are informed that- 1,800,000 rixdollars were demanded, besides some dou- ceurs, a term frequently made use of by the Prussians from the electorate of Saxony. It is reckoned that the Russians, Austrians, and army of the Empire, at present in Berlin and its neighbouring country, amount to about 40,000 men, which combined army is to besiege Span- dau, where Prince Eugene of Wurtemburg threw himself into with about 7 or 8000 men. That place is said to be in good condition, but poorly supplied with provisions. In the arsenal and magazines at Berlin, were found great quantities of ammunition and warlike stores. See. The Russians are likewise masters of Potsdam; and the Count de Tottleben dates his military orders from the palace of Sans- Soucy. Their parties make incursions as far as Havelberg and Perleburg. Hague, Oct 20 The Valet de Chambre of Mr. Verelst, our Minister at the court of Berlin, arrived here express last Friday at noon, with a confirmation of the news, that that city surrendered the 8th inst. by capitulation, to the combined forces of Russia and Austria, at the in- tercession of the ministers from the court of Denmark and the States General. The particulars hitherto received are in substance as follows; that the Prussian troops ( as well the detachment under Prince Eugene of Wirtemberg, as General Hulsen's corps) finding it impossible to make head against the superiority of the enemy, so as to save the city, retired under the cannon of Spandau, leaving only three weak battalions in Berlin, who have been made prisoners. The fear of being plundered threw the inhabitants into the greatest terror and consternation but we hear, promise has been given, that they shall be exempted from it, and the strictest discipline is observed in consequence but it's assured the Austrians immediately levelled the arsenal with the ground, and that 2 or 300,000 guilders hare been paid to the commanding officers: in the mean time measures were taking for raising the contributions. The inhabitants have received assurances, that they Shall be allowed the free exercise of their religion. Immediately after the surrender of the city, strong guards were placed at the doors of the hotels of all the foreign ministers, whither many of the most considerable inhabitants betook themselves for greater safety. The Austrians are quartered upon the burghers, and the Russians in the streets of the city, and in the suburbs. Hamburgh, October 14. It was to General Fermor of the Russians, that Berlin surrendered. The Austrians wanted to send some of their troops into the town ; this caused some altercation, which was at length removed. The Austrians consisted 0f 15 or 1600o men, detached from Marshal Daun's army, under the command of General Lasci and Gen. Brentano, who entered Branden- burgh by Spremberg. Letters received here advise, that the reigning Duke of Wirtemberg will, at the head of a body of Austrian troops, and those of the Empire, form the siege of Magdebourg : But this needs confirmation. Hamburgh, Oct. 10. The Prussian garrison have eva- cuated Leipsic, without committing any disorders ; they marched by Halle to Magdebourg. Hague, October 15. Yesterday came advice, that the Prussians under General Hulsen being attacked in their camp near Torgau, by the combined army of the Empire and the Wirtemburghers, had been beaten and dispersed ; and that on the 26th the conquerors took possession of Torgau, the garrison of which, cosisting of four batta- lions, were made prisoners of war. Magdebourg, 0ct. ti. We have just received a con- firmation of the news, that General Werner attacked, on the 3d instant, a body of Swedish troops posted near Passewalck, took six pieces of cannon, and made about 500 prisoners, among whom are sixteen officers, one of whom is a Lieutenant- Colonel. The loss of the Swedes on this occasion may amount to upwards of 1000 men ; ours does not exceed 100 killed and wounded. • Utrecht, Oct. 20. Count Soltikoff's head- quarters are at Lissau, and those of M. Daun at Sorgau. Hague, Oct. 21. We have received the following particulars of the two engagements which happened on the Lower Rhine the 15th and 16th instant, between the French troops under the Marquis de Castries, and the; Allied troops commanded by the Hereditary Prince of Brunswick. On the 14th the Marquis de Castries marched at the head of 32 battalions and as many squadrons. The next day he went to Rhinberg, where Fischer's corps, which formed his advanced guard, attacked 1000 or 1200 of the enemy who occupied that post, and obliged them to abandon it, after having killed 180 men. The loss of the French on this occasion did not exceed 40 men. On the 16th M. de Castries marched forward, and meeting with the Allies commanded by the Hereditary Prince, ' he engaged in a general action. His left wing at first suffered considerably, and Fischer's torps lost a great num- ber of men ; but soon after the engagement took another turn, and the regiment of Auvergne, which performed wonders, having taken four pieces of cannon from the Hanoverians, the latter were defeated and abandoned the field of battle, with one of their bridges, which 8oo French volunteers took possession of. This affair was very bloody, and it's computed that the loss on both sides must amount to about 6000 men. The loss of the Allies was the more considerable, as they were pursued a long while by the French infantry sword in hand. DU- ring the action, the Marquis de Castries was slightly,.. wounded, but this did not hinder him from pursuing the enemy. The English General Holborn was killed upon the spot. On the 17th M. de Castries marched again and reached the Allies, who had retreated to the heights of Alpen, which they were forced to abandon in order to regain their bridges, which they did not accomplish without great trouble and loss. We have received ad- vice, that in the night between the 18th and 19th the Hereditary Prince raised the siege of Wesel and retired. From the head quarters of the Hereditary Prince of Bruns- wick, at Brunen, Oct. 18. Within these two days our hopes of becoming masters of Wesel have vanished. They began to diminish before, on account of the rainy season, which had considerably risen the waters of the Rhine and the Lippe, and rendered the roads in Westphalia unpas- sable for the artillery. The Hereditary Prince, nOtwithstanding all the ob- structions he met with from the continual rains and vio- lent storms, succeeded in throwing two bridges over the Rhine, one above and the other below Wesel, and opened the trenches in the night of the 10th instant without any loss. The governor made two or three sailies very softly, but did no damage to our works ; and at the same time he set about restoring the bridge over the Rhine, by means of which he was to receive succours. While this was doing before Wesel, Marshal Broglio was getting together under Cologn, under the command of the Marquis de Castries, a large body of French troops, part of which came from their great army in Hesse, and the other from the Low- Countries. The enemy being sensible how important it was to them to take advantage of the delay which the season occasioned in our enterprize against Wesel, pushed one of their detachments the 14th instant to Rhinberg, which obliged an advanced post which we had there to retire, after great resistance. The Hereditary Prince, who went on that side to re- connoitre in person, thought, if possible, to make some attempt to hinder the enemy from approaching towards Wesel ; but as the French were much superior, his Serene Highness resolved to try to surprize them in their camp, in order by that means to conceal from them the knowledge of his force, which was so inferior to that of the enemy. With this view on the 15th instant he caused sixteen battalions, and as many squadrons, to advance towards Rhinberg, with which he matched about ten o'clock at night, and this would probably have exceeded his expectations, if a detachment of Fischer's had not thrown themselves in the night into the convent of Campen, within half a league of their camp, and by which we must pass to get at the left flank of the enemy. The attack made upon Fischer's corps alarmed the camp of the Marquis de Castries, and gave time to get the troops under arms. However, his Serene Highness was resolved upon the attack, which he began at five o'clock in the morning; but the enemy being posted near a wood, from which it was too difficult to dislodge them, the Prince after fighting vigorously till nine o'clock, de- termined to draw off his troops towards the Rhine, the waters of which rofe so fast, that his communication with the siege was rendered almost impracticable. This march was very well executed ; our troops retreated in the same order and resolution with which they fought, carrying with them proofs of their good behaviour in the person of Lieut. General de Segur, and several other French officers and soldiers whom they took prisoners, together with one pair of colours, and some pieces of cannon. Our loss amounts to near 1000 men; and the enemy have suffered very much, so that notwithstanding their superiority they did not molest us in our march to Elverick, where we arrived the same day. We found our bridge broken by the floods of the Rhine which had over- flowed the Banks, and we were obliged to repair our bridge, and pass it in sight of the enemy, which we exe- cuted the 18th, with all the order imaginable, and with out the least loss. The affair of Campen would not have determined ut to abandon the siege, for the loss of the enemy is cer- tainly greater than ours ; but we should have endangered our troops too much in this advanced season, especially as we could not yet begin to fire upon the place on account of our trenches being filled with water. The Prince accordingly raised the blockade, and after sending away the greatest part of the ammunion, he marched to Brunen, about a league from Wesel, and fixed his camp1 there. We cannot sufficiently commend the behaviour of the officers and troops who were engaged in the affair of Campen. We had some officers wounded, two of whom, viz. my Lord Downe, who commanded Home's regi ment of foot, and Mr. Pitt, who commanded Mordaunt's dragoons, were taken prisoners; Hague, OB. 21. We have undoubted intelligence; that the French have evacuated the Landgraviate of Hesse Cassel, and are marching back towards Francfort. We have just received advice by the Hamburgh mail; that the city of Wittemberg continues to make a vigorous defence against the army of the empire ; and that upon ^ he news of the King of Prussia's coming towards Berlin with part of his army, the Austrians and Russians eva- cuated that city the 13th instant, after raising contri- butions in it to the amount of 1,900 000 crowns. [ In stile of French newS- writers, a crown is but three livies, which answers nearly to our half- crown.] Geneva, Sept. 30. On the 20th instant an express from Turin brought orders to a regiment of dragoons and a regiment of foot, quartered in Savoy, to set out in twice twenty- four hours to Suza. It is said that the King of Sardinia wants to have all his troops ready to aft as occasion may require. COUNTRY - NEWS. Norwich, 08. 25. Last Saturday a young woman, servant to Mr. Kiddle, a farmer at Sprowston, after coming home from seeing her brother, eat a slice of bread and butter, which was poisoned in order to destroy some mice ; and though all possible care was taken of her by a surgeon from this city, she expired in a few days. • LONDON. On Sunday noon last orders were sent from the War- office to administer the oaths to the troops at Portsmouth, destined for the intended expedition. There was a great Court yesterday at Saville- House. On Sunday the body of his late most excellent Majesty was embowelled, and the royal corpse embalmed. As the time between his late Majesty's being left alone, and found expiring, was so short, there can be no other circumstances in the interesting scene, but those few pre- ceding the small interval of his rising in the morning, to his final departure, which, agreeable to what has come to our hands, were as follows: That his Majesty was waited on as usual without any apparent signs of indisposition, drank his chocolate, in- quired about the wind as if anxious for the arrival of mails, opened the window of his room, and perceiving it a fine day, said, he would walk in the gardens: That his chocolate- maker being the last person with his Ma- jesty ( who appropriated the early hours of the morning to retirement) observed him give a sigh on quitting the presence, and soon after hearing a noise, like the falling of a billet of wood from the fire, he returned, and found the King dropt from his seat, as it attempting to ring the bell. His Majesty, in the fall, received a small hurt on his temple; proper assistance being immediately got, he was put to bed, and an attempt was made to bleed him, but not above an ounce could be procured. It was his earnest wish, that he might live to see a happy termination of the jarring troubles and wide spread carnage of war; for the Monarch that could weep at the single fall of a Wolfe, in the exultation of success, could not but proportionably feel affliction, for its more com- plicated miseries nearer home, in which such numbers were involved ; but unerring Providence judged proper to give his Majesty another kind of peace and repose, for which it was his constant endeavour to prepare, by acts of mercy, justice, and devotion. Immediately on the King's demise the great officers of state were sent for, and the Right Hon. Mr. Pitt first acquainted his present Majesty, then at Kew, with the important event. Yesterday came to town from their country- seats, the Dukes of Kingston, Dorset, and Bridgewater, the Earls of Northumberland and Egmont, and a great number of Members of parliament and persons of distinction. Yesterday several Gentlemen of the Common Council of this city waited on the Lord- Mayor, to request a court might be immediately called, that the corporation might have as early an opportunity as possible of paying their respects to the King in a dutiful address ; in pur. suance of which a common- council will be held this afternoon between five and six o'clock. There are letters in town from Copenhagen which advise, that the King of Denmark was dangerously ill on the 7th instant. Some letters from Denmark say, that the Danish troops in Holstein are to be augmented to 40,000 men. According to fome accounts, Prince Henry of Prussia has been for some time at Breslau indispofed. Extract of a Letter from Portsmouth, 0ct. 26. " Thursday afternoon a bomb- ketch sailed from Spit- head for the Downs, with several merchantmen and coasters under her convoy. " Saturday his Majesty's ship Sandwich, Admiral Geary, sailed from St. Helen's to Spithead. The' same evening the above flag was struck, and the Admiral set out far London. " Sunday morning sailed into the harbour his Ma- jesty's frigates Juno and Flamborough to clean. " We expect to see the fleet from the Downs so long expected, to- night or to- morrow morning. They are yet very busy in embarking the stores from the gun wharf on board what transports we have here. The large fleet of transports for the bulk of our embarkation are coming from the Downs in the above fleet, that we have been in expectation of for some time. " We have a report prevails here that we have lost a ship of the line off Belleisle, occasioned by a ship's gal- lery, painted green, being thrown on shore with some English casks on the above island. " At Spitbead Admiral Durell, with 28 sail of men of war." The James and William, Green ; Concord, Sutton ; Diadem, Terrington, and Unity, Cockerill, all from Hull to Stockholm, arc taken and ransomed for 1800 guineas. By a letter from Capt. Fish, at St. Eustatia, we learn, that his ship, the Pickering, of Liverpool, was taken by four French Martinico privateers, after a long resistance, en July 2. She had but five guns and 17 people on board, three of whom were passengers, notwithstanding which she beat them off, but was at length obliged to submit to superior force : She had none either killed or wounded. On the four privateers boarding him, they stript the crew, and fell to picking their pockets, plundering them of every thing worth taking. The Captain thinks the vessel was afterwards retaken, but is not quite sure. The Prince Edward, Larley, from Petersburgh to Southampton and the ship of Capt. Barthold Klopstock Are both ashore near the Sound. The Archduke, Hayman, from Trieste, said to be lost on the Galleons, is arrived at Blackwall. The Minerva, late Capt. Oliver, is wrecked near Formby. Two boys only were saved out of 16 persons on board. TwO ships from China and one from Bengal, belong- ing to the Chamber of Amsterdam, arrived in the Texel on the 16th instant. Yesterday the Superb man of war, of 74 guns, was launched at Deptford. We hear from the north parts of the county of Northumberland, that last Thursday was the most stormy day that has been known. The sea near Holy Island ran mountains high, and Cheviot hills were covered With snow to a very great depth. To the Gentlemen, Clergv, and Freeholders, of the County of CORNWALL'.

Petersburgh, Sept. 13. M. Deon de Beaumont, Secre- tary to the French embassy, is gone to execute a com- mission at Paris. A certain convention is said to be on the tapis between our court and others, of which it will be time enough to speak more plainly when the finishing hand is put to it. Two hundred pieces of cannon, taken from the Prus- sians, have been brought hither by water, and put into our arsenal. Dantzick, Sept. 24. We have advice from Warsaw, that a corps of 3000 Cossacks had passed by that ciry, going to join the Russian army on the banks of the Oder. Torgau, Oct. 2. On the 28th ult. 116o Prussian sol- diers, prisoners of war, were sent from hence for Au- stria ; and the next day, 63 Prussian officers, as well as subalterns and valets, were sent for Swabia, under the escort of two squadrons of Wirtemberg dragoons and a detachment from the regiment of Baden- Dourlach. Dresden, Oct. 6. Tho' we are very reserved here in speaking of the operations of the armies, we cannot help observing that the Prussians have never been so embar- rassed as at present. Hamburgh, Oct. 17. According to letters from Berlin of the 14th of this month, the Russians and Austrians left that city the preceding day : the former are retired by Furstenwald to join their grand army which encamps at Rippen near Franckfort on the Oder 5 the others have taken the route of Baruth, and are going probably into Saxony ; so that there is no doubt of the laying siege to Spandau. Before their departure from Berlin, those combined troops received 500,000 crowns, in part of 15ooooo demanded of the city. The traders were obliged to de- liver to Count Tottleben, for the entire sum, a bill of exchange payable in six days, with this reserve, that what could be collected in money during those six days should be accepted, and that for the remainder they should furnish bills of exchange in ducats valued at four florins a piece, and payable in two months. Prague, Oct. 11. The King of Prussia is in march with his army towards Brandebourg ; but too late to save his capital. Marshal Daun follows him, but not in any great hurry, because he reckons that General Lascy has accomplished his expedition. Hamburgh, Oct. 18. We are assured that his Prussian Majesty arrived the 11th at Crossen with a great part of his army. The Russians, according to some letters, before they quitted Berlin, sold as much as they possibly could of the King's effects which they found there. From the head quarters of the army of the Empire at Rurersdorff, October 13. Gen. Guasco is charged with the siege of Wittemberg. The Prince of Deux Ponts having received advice that his Prussian Majesty was marching this way, has reinforced the garrisons of Dresden, Meissen, and Torgau, and ordered the works of the latter place to be repaired. The Duke of Wir- temberg is gone towards Halle, from whence he designs to march into the country of Halberstadt. This morning at four o'clock all our batteries began to make a most terrible fire upon Wittemberg, which has continued all day without ceasing. Besides setting fire to several parts where the enemy's magazines were, we have made a considerable breach in the body of the place; and every thing is ready for an assault this night: but it will not take place, for this moment the besieged are beating the chamade. They are to be prisoners of war, and will quit the place to- morrow. Hague, oct. 23. Letters from Leipsick bring advice, that the city of Wittemberg surrendered to the combined army of the Empire on the 14th of this month ; and that the taking of that place was of the more importance, as all the heavy artillery employed by the King of Prussia at the siege of Dresden was found in it. According to the last letters from Francfort on the Mayne, which are dated the 16th of this month, the French had not then left Cassel; their army continued to encamp in the neighbourhood of that city, find Prince Ferdinand still kept the same position. Nimeguen, Oct. 10. The Allies have burnt the French magazine at Aerssen. Dunkirk, October 18. An English frigate of 36 guns has been wrecked between this port and Boulogne; LONDON. We Hear an express is arrived, with advice that the King of Prussia has defeated Marshal Daun. And it's said that the King of Denmark has signified to the Russian Generals that if they don't quit Germany he will declare war against them. In the late action of Campen, the Hereditary Prince received a small contusion, and had a horse killed undec him; and the Lord Lenox received a slight wound; The cavalry in general behaved in a surprising manner. According to letters from Wezel, the French regiment of Alsace, infantry, had 52 officers killed or wounded in the action of the 16th with the Hereditary Prince of Brunswick. Extract of a Letter from Paris, dated Oct 13. " In the absence of the King, who will remain at Fontainbleau ' till the 23d of this month, the Dauphin or the Duke de Choiseul will Open the pacquets received from Marshal Broglio. " A new man of war of 70 guns has been launched at Brest, where a squadron is fitting out, which will be ready to put to sea in a little time. On the 7th of this month a fire broke out on the Quai des Theatins, at the house of the Marquis de Bac- queville; whose temper was so very strange and unac- countable, that he would not sufFer any men to come in to assist in extinguishing the fire : so that in less than two hours his house was reduced to ashes, and himself perished in the flames by the side of his strong boxes full of cash, jewels, plate, and other valuable effects. He Was 72 years old." Extract of a Letter from Constantinople, Sept. t. " The Grand Signior has declared that one of the Sultana's is far advanced in her pregnancy, and ordered public prayers to be put up for the happy delivery of that Princess. " Altho' a pardon was formally promised to the Pacha of Iconia, who had lately revolted against the sublime Porte; on condition that he retired with his adherents to Chiva, on the frontier of Persia, it's said that secret orders have been sent to all the governors of the places thro' which this rebellious subject must pass, to watch him carefully, and to deliver him here dead or alive ; but that this crafty Pacha having got scent of the snares intended for him, kept so well on his guard, that he beat and dispersed several corps of troops who offered to attack him. ' Tis added, that since that time several emissaries have been sent from hence, who, under pre- tence of entering into his service, were to seize some opportunity of dispatching him ; but his vigilance has rendered all these projects ineffectual, and enabled him to secure those who were charged with the execution of them. In the mean time, we are assured that this Pacha is now with his corps Of rebels in the neighbourhood of Etzerum, where he has chosen a very advantageous camp, from whence it will be nearly impossible to force him." Letters from Smyrna advise, that three English ships of the line, of 74, 64, and 60 guns, had appeared off the isle of Milo, and that three other men of war of the same nation, and of the same rates, had fleered towards the coast of Syria, in quest of a French squadron cruis- ing in the Archipelago. Admiral Rodney, with his squadron from off Havre- de- grace, is arrived in the Downs. Yesterday his Royal Highness the Duke of York and the Earl of Bute were sworn of his Majefty's Privy- Council. This day at two o'clock the Court of Aldermen waited on his Majesty with an address of condolance and con- gratulation. And to- morrow the Sheriffs will wait on his Majesty to know his pleasure, when he will be pleased to receive the address of the Court and Common Council in its corporate capacity, on the same occasion.

For the certain Cure of the S C U R V Y, ESSENCE of WATER- DOCK, Prepared by the Directions of Dr. Hill. THERE is no Question but this Plant will cure the most inveterate SCURVY. The Antients all affirm it; and the Cures now daily performed by the Essence prove their Truth. It not only clears the Skin of Eruptions, but mends the whole Constitution. Scorbutic Persons are subject to have bad Stomachs, and to be miserably low- spirited at Times, and many have these Complaints, not knowing the Scurvy is the Cause. This Medicine takes off the Faintness, creates an Appetite and good Digestion immediately, when that Distemper in their Blood is the Cause ; and gradually cleans the Skin, and prevents future Eruptions. The Afflicted may depend on these Effects. It is sold at 3s, a Bottle, with printed Directions, by Mr. Baldwin, Bookseller, in Paternoster- Row; and Mr. Jackson, bcokseller, in St. James's Street.
