[ Vol. I.] Printed and publish'd by C. POPE, and C°. at the Printing- office in STALL- STREET; Where PRINTING in all its Branches is perform'd on the most reasonable Terms, and in the neatest Manner. [ The above C. POPE serv'd his Apprenticeship with the late Mr. BODDELY, and has had the sole Management of the Bath Journal for theselastfive Years.] To the PRINTER, & c. SIR,-- One Evening, near the Close of Summer, " when thelastTraces of departing Day bad tinged the fleecy Clouds in the Chambers of the West with saint but beautiful Colaurs, I took a solitary Walk in the Garden, and gazed with Pleasure on the expanded Canopy of the Skies, decked with a surprizing Num- ber of glittering Stars, while Cynthia with her Silver Rays rendered every Object delightfully pleasing. Nor was the Calmness of the Evening disturbed a gentle Breeze fanned the Leaves, and wasted the Odours of a thousand Plants. The Serenity of the Weather engaged me to take my Seat on a flowery Bank, and the Stilness and Solemnity of the Scene inspired my Mind with serious Reflections on HAPPI- NESS, ( that Object so universally regarded) and the Methods of attaining it. The following I still remember ; and desire you will insert them in your Pater; which will oblige your Reader and Admirer, EMILIA. Reflections on Happiness, & c. THE Man that would enjoy Happiness here, must not make too many Reflections on the Misfortunes of Life, as he will certainly meet with something to disgust him, and imbitter the Rest of his Pleasures. He ought therefore only to indulge such Thoughts as will enable him to act his Part well in the Drama; for he who will fit down attentively to reflect on his Misfortunes, without striving to raise his Spirits to encounter them, must expect to be miserable ; since conti- nual Reflections on his unhappy Lot will render himself unable to bear it with that chearful Resig- nation which alone makes the Turns of Life sup- portable. A Man therefore who is unfortunate, ought to seek in exterior Objects that Pleasure which the State of his Mind will not permit him to enjoy in Reflection, and be in a Manner sometimes absent from himself. Gloomy Thoughts will only tend to increase his Misery, and, instead of lessening, add a Weight to his Misfortunes. But tho' I think uneasy Reflections ought to be avoided, I am aware, that, in the Midi! of Pleasure, it is as difficult to attain that State of serene Happiness all aim at, as in Misfortunes to avoid think- ing on them. A Mediocrity alone can raise Pleasures to that exalted Pitch ; for when they remain unconfined, they lose that Refinement which ren- ders them agreeable, and degenerate into a loose ungoverned Passion, that debases human Nature That Reflection, which adds to Misfortunes will heighten Pleasures by softening them, since it tends to make us return with fresh Desire; for the same continued Round of Pleasure would grow insipid, and lose all its Charms. Friday's and Saturday's POSTS. Arrived Two Mails from FLANDERS, but have brought nothing of any Consequence. London, April 16. The INGENUOUS LOVER. DEAR SYLVIA, I nor truer am, Nor better than the rest ; For I shou'd change each Hour like them, Were it my Interest. But I'm so fixt alone to thee. And ev'ry Thought. I have ; That shou'd you now my Heart set free, ' Twou'd be again your Slave. All that in Woman is ador'd, In thy dear Self I find ; For the whole Sex can but afford The Good, the Fair, the Kind. Why shou'd I then seek further Store ? Ah ! why make Love anew ? Since Change itself can give no more, ' Tis easy to be true. S. THE last Letters from Vienna, bring Advice, that the Plan of Operations for the ensuing Campaign is entirely settled. Marshal Daun, who commands the Army in Saxony, will have only 80,000 Men, to defend Saxony and the Passes into Bohemia, which, it is assured, the Enemy will attempt to invade. As this Army consists at present of 92,000, six Thousand Horse and the same Number of Foot will draw near Prague, where, with the TrooPs that arc already that Neighbourhood, they will form an Army of 20,000 Men, destined to enter Silesia, besiege some Fortress, and support the Enterprises of Ge- neral Laudohn. As the Court is informed that about 50,000 Russians will advance on the Side of Great Glogau, and press their Operations with unusual Vigour, they promise themselves a bril- liant Campaign in Silesia. These Letters add, that the Supplies are in- deed an Article which embarrasses them not a little ; but Methods have been proposed to raise them without laying additional Burthens on the People. It is said that considerable Sums will be railed from the Clergy, and that they only wait for the Pope's Permission to tax the Members of that opulent Body in Proportion to their Revenues It is also proposed, to oblige private Persons to carry Part of their Plate to the Mint, and to take even most of the Gold and Silver Images of Saints the Churches, with the Lamps, and other Church Plate : And that Instructions have already been lent to their Ambassador at Rome, to make the proper Application for these Purposes. A Letter from Dantzick, says, that the King of Prussia is taking every Method, through the Channel of the British Minister at Petersburgh, to induce the Empress of Russia to agree to the Proposals of Peace that have been made this Year by England and Prussia. He hath even of- fered her a considerable Sum of Money, half to be paid directly, and the other Half at a certain Term agreed on, after the Conclusion of the War By Means of this Offer, M. Keith hath strengthened his Party at Court. Many of the Minis- ters press her Imperial Majesty to relinquish her Alliance with the House of Austria ; but the Chancellor, who is entirely in the Empress Queen's Interests, pulls down in Half- an- Hour what cost the others a Fortnight to build up. In consequence of this Minister's Credit, between 35 and 40,000 Russians are ordered to advance to wards Silesia to second General Laudohn. On the other Hand, different Corps of Troops assembling, in order to proceed to the New Marche of Brandenbourg, where it is proposed to have an Army of 50,000 Men, As to the Swedes, very little is expected from them. Our Advices from Ratisbon, dated the 3d of this Month fay, that a Russian Officer who passed through that City in the Dress of a Courier, with Dispatches for England, reported that there was the utmost Probability of feeing Peace restored in Germany; and that the Czarina was perfectly disposed to embrace such Measures as may soonest put an End to the Effussion of Christian Blood. Private Letters from Hanover, dated the 7th Instant, acquaint us, that a Cessation of Arms for six Weeks has taken Place between the French and the Allies, which is chiefly owing to the Country's being entirely exhausted, and the In- conveniences both Armies feel from the great Scarcity of Provisions, which nothing but such a Convention could remedy. The Corsicans, according to some Letters from Leghorn, having renewed the Siege of the Castle of San Pallegrino, carried it by Assault, and made the Genoese Garrison Prisoners of War; and it was said they had found there a Quantity of Artillery, and Ammunition and Provision for six Months ; and afterwards proceeded to the At- tack of the Tower of Golo. Letters from Brussels of the 8th Inst. mention, that Prince' Charles of Lorraine's Body Guard of Hussars and Domestics were set out from thence for Mergenheim, where it's thought the said Prince will be elected Grad Master of the Teu- tonic Order; and that they were preparing there some Hundreds of Waggons for the Use of Prince Soubise's Army upon the Lower Rhine. Desertion has encreased of late among the Austrians ; and some of the Croats have also muti- nied in Bohemia, because they were not suffered to return Home at the Expiration of the Term for which they had enlisted. Letters from North- America fay, that an Ex- pedition will certainly take Place there this Spring, in which 1.0,000 Regular Troops are to be em- ployed. Advices from North- America fay, that there seems as little Prospect of an Accommodation between the English and the Cherokee Indians, as when the Affair first broke out. By a Letter from the East- Indies, by Way of Constantinople, there is Advice, that the Crew of the Denham Indiaman, after having burnt her, retired into Fort Marlborough, and defended the Place with great Bravery, but, overpowered by Numbers, were at last obliged to surrender; how- ever, they were so fortunate as to have removed great Part of their best Effects up into the Coun- try, and some they had put on board Dutch Ships, and sent to Batavia. Some Letters from Portsmouth say, that the Fleet to be employed in the second Expedition against the French, consists of 12 Men of War of the Line, besides six Frigates ; and that Admiral Hawke was daily expected there to take upon him the Command of it. The Armament fitted out under the Command of Commodore Keppel, is ( in respect to Land Forces) the greatest that has been out this War. It is reported that our second Expedition Fleet will be commissioned to fail for the Mediterranean to bombard Toulon, and also to make an At- tempt upon Minorca. Capt. Muckell, who returned lately from destroying the Fortifications at Louisbourg, em- barked on Saturday with the Company of Miners at Portsmouth, in order to join the grand Expe- dition. The Landing of the Troops at Belleisle is asserted and contradicted lb confidently each Way that no Certainty can be drawn. ' Tis said that the Marquis of Granby will re turn to the Army in eight or ten Days, in order again to take the Command. The Earl of Chesterfield, who has been for some Time ill, is so well recovered as to be able to go Abroad. Yesterday Sir Richard Adams fat in the Court of Chancery, the Lord Chancellor continuing ill of the Gout. We hear that Dr. Blakiston, Member of Parliament for Hindon in Wilts, and Vinerian Professor of Law at Oxford, is to have a Patent of Precedency as Council; and that the following Gentlemen of Mr. Thurlow, Mr. Wedderburn, and Mr. Ambler Monday an Officer of the Norfolk Militia standing on a Horse's Back without a Saddle, in full Speed, leapt over a five- barr'd Gate, and per- formed several other Feats of Horsemanship in Hyde- Park, before the Duke of York, Prince Henry, and other Persons of Distinction. A very extraordinary Wager was lately said by two Gentlemen at a Coffee- House near Temple- Bar; one of whom is to jump into seven Feet of Water with his Cloaths on, and to entirely un- dress himself in the Water; which if he fails accomplishing, he is to MARRIAGES.

At a Time when a Spirit of Enthusiasm on the one Hand, and of Dissipation on the other, are making perpetual Depredations on the Interests of rational Religion, found Knowledge, and real Virtue, it must be the sincere Wish, and ought to be the earned Endeavour of every sensible and worthy Mind, to put a Stop to Disorders which threaten the most fatal Effects. To contribute towards so salutary a Design, a Set of Gentlemen offer to the Public a new Monthly Performance, which they hope to con- duit on such Principles as shall deserve the En- couragement of all true Friends to Piety, Vir- tue and Learning ; and the Protection, in parti- cular, of the judicious Clergy, of every Deno- mination.

THIS Medicine is compounded of the finest natural Balsams, and balsamic Herbs, is the most admirable Vulnerary in Nature, and so friendly to the Constitution, that it deserves the Title here given to it, in the most eminent De- gree. It is particularly serviceable in the STONE, GRAVEL, and Ulcerations of the Kidneys, in which it brings away the small Stones and Sand that were lodged in the Bladder and Reins; and in the GOUT, and old obstinate RHEUMATISMS, it gives great Relief, and frequently carries off the Fit.---- In the WIND CHOLIC, and mostviolent PAINS of the Stomach and Bowels, it gives imme- diate Ease, and by a little Continuance, perfectly prevents all Returns. In QUINSIES, SORE- THROATS and HOARSENESSES, it is beyond all other Medicines whatsoever. In Asthmas, Phyty- sicks, Coughs, and all inward Decays, and WEAK- NESSES, it affords the most singular Relief.— Nor are the excellent Qualities of this Balsam confined to inward Complaints only, it being of equal Effi- cacy in many external ones, and demonstrates to our Eyes its extraordinary healing and balsamic Properties, by curing more speedily, certainly, and safely, than any other Medicine, all fresh Wounds and Bruises. In short, this BALSAM is so salutary in its Ef- fects, so friendly to Nature, and so well adapted to most Constitutions, that it is held in the highest Esteem by those who have for many Years expe- rienced its Virtues, and to them we appeal for a Testimony of what is above related. To prevent Counter- feits, this Balsam is sealed with the Impression inthé Margin, and sold at ONE SHIL- ling and SIx- PENCE each Bottle, by J. NEWBERY, at the Bi- ble and Sun in St. Paul's Church- Yard, London : Where great Allowance is made to Merchants, Captains of Ships, and Shopkeepers, who buy Quantities to sell again. N. B. The Proprietor of this Balsam having fully established his Property, ( as may be seen by the Proceedings concerning it, in the High Court of Chancery ) now offers it to the Public at Eighteen - Pence the Bottle, which are of the SAME SIZE as- those sold under the Name of Balsam of Life for Three Shillings and Six- Pence. This BALSAM is also sold by C. POPE, and C°. at the Printing- Office in Stall- Street, G. DUPERRE, and L. LAMBE, in Bath ; T. CADELL, J. PALMER, and J. BROWN, in Bristol.

Paston, on the 15th of March, being off Cape Finisterre, fell in with and took the Hardi Pri- vateer of Bayonne, of 10 Guns and 125 Men, and carried her into Lisbon. She had been out 18 Days, and had not taken any Thing. His Majesty's Ship the Blonde, commanded by. Capt. Kennedy, being off Cape Finisterre, on the 27th of February fell in with a large Vessel of about 400 Tons Burthen, with 1.8 Carriage Guns and 75 Men, bound from Bourdeaux to St Domingo, which she took, after near an Hour's Engagement, and carried into Lisbon. His Majesty's Ship Terpsichore, commanded by Sir Thomas Adams, Bart, oh the 8th Inst. about 8 Leagues to the Westward of Scilly, fell in with and took a small Lugsail Privateer, called the Bienbroynon, of 1 Carriage, and 12 Swivel Guns, with 35 Men, and carried her into Plymouth. She failed from Dieppe about three Weeks ago, and has been cruizing ever since in the Bristol Channel; had taken two Sloops and a Snow; and the Ransomers for the two Sloops were retaken on board her.

The Marshal's Quarters will be at Francfort; where his Lady is expected. Capt. Otto, an Austrian Partisan, having fur- prized the Garrison of Langenfaltze, who had said the Inhabitants under Military Execution, made Prisoners of Major Kalckreuter, a Lieutenant, a Cornet, a Commissary, 70 Cuirassiers with their Horses, and discharged all the Sick and Wounded of the French and Saxons. FRANCFORT, April 4. The Troops which the Marshal sent for from the Lower Rhine, and which are to make Part of the Marshal de Soubise's Army, are; set out 0n their Return for those Parts. LEIPSICK, April 6. The King of Prussia's Head- Quarters are at Meissen, where Prince Henry is expected, in order to take the Command of the Army in Saxony, whilst his Prussian Majesty goes to put himelf at the Head of that in Silesia, where ' tis supposed the chief Qperations will be. Gen. Laudohn's Army is rated at forty- six thousand Men : Three thousand more are to be sent to it from Daun's Army, whose Place will be supplied by Draughts from Garrisons in the. Center of the Empire; and thirty thousand Russians are to act in concert with Lahdohn. It seems both Parties are determined to decide the Fate of Silesia this Campaign, PARIS, April 7. M. Dache, who commanded the King's Squadron in India, is just arrived at Brest with two of his Ships, and the others will soon follow. They bring a Confirmation of the Retreat of the English from before Pondicherry, which indeed was only blockaded by them at a Distance. They could not prevent 5000 Blacks, with Provisions, sent by the Nabob of Meyssor, our Ally, from entering the Place. London, April 18, His Grace the Duke of Cumberland is in perfect Health. Wednesday, at Five in the Afternoon, died in his Chair, of an Apoplectic Fit, at his House in Argyll- street, aged near 80, Archibald Cambel, Duke of Argyll. He is succeeded in Estates and Honours by General John Cambel. Immediately upon the Coronation, it is said, there will be a general Coinage. Various are the Reasons for the continued rise of the Stocks. Many People imagine that a Peace, or a Treaty for one, is the. Occasion of it. But if we are rightly informed, it is chiefly owing to several large Sums lately come from Abroad, to be deposited in our Funds. We hear that one Gentleman, a Merchant of this City, has cleared by the late Rise of Stocks 30,000l. The following Forces are embarked in the Ex- pedition. viz. The Regiments of Loudon, Pultney, Beauclerc, Panmure, Rufane, Colville, Gray, Stewart, and Scotch Fusileers. Six Companies of Morgan's Light Infantry. Six Companies of Crawford's Light Infantry. Three Companies of the Train of Artillery. The Marines of several Ships, under the Com- mand of Lieu. Col. M'Kenzie An Express from Spain is arrived with the Flanders Mail, and is said to have brought Ad- vice, that an Earthquake happened at Madrid the 31st of last Month, which lasted two Minutes, and had put the Inhabitants into a great Consternation, but there was no Lives Lost; and that they were under the greatest Concern for Cadiz and Lisbon, being apprehensive that the Inhabitants of those two Cities have suffer'd greatly by it. The last Advices from Madrid fay, that they are fitting out eight Men of War to escorte Troops to the Havanna ; that the Streets of Ma- drid are to be paved, with proper Canals to carry the Water and Filth ; and that the Streets are also to be enlightened in the Night- Time. talk likewise of prohibiting the Use of Copper Utensils in Kitchens, which, if not kept clean, become very unwholsome. By a Letter from India, dated August 17, 1760, ie appears Pondicherry was then invested by Land, but not besieged, and that the French had found Means to introduce into the Place the Stores contained in two Ships, which by Stratagem escaped our Fleet. The Letters from Turin fay, that they continue to fill up the Regiments with the utmost Diligence ; that they will all be complete by the ill of May ; that many Horses had been brought from Swit- zerland to remount the Dragoons. And that the Courts of Madrid and Naples were also openly- declaring War. From Lisbon they write, that the King had re- solved to erect a Military School on the Plan of- that at Paris, and to establish some new Regula- tions for the better Regulation of the University of Conimbra. The People in the Ships lately arrived from Lisbon, felt in their Passage, many Leagues to the Westward of Cape Finisterre, an unusual Agi- tation of the Sea, which made some of them think they had ( truck upon some Rocks; but upon Recollection, they judged the violent Shocks they met with on the Ocean, though without any tempestuous Weather, to be like those that at- tended the great Earthquake at Lisbon the Ist of November, 1755, and on their Arrival here, they found by their Journals that the Date agrees with the Time of the Earthquake or Agitation of the Waters at Corke, See. So that it is feared some great Earthquake has happened to the Southward of Cape Finisterre. The French King hath written to the Arch- bishop of Paris, desiring him to cause Te Deum to be sung in all the Churches of his Diocese, for the Advantages gained by the Army under Marshal Broglio. Capt. Potts, of the Volunteer, from Virginia, for London, who was taken and carried into Spain, is come Home in a Neutral Ship, which was boarded by a Man of War, belonging to Commodore Kep- pel's Fleet in the Bay. who were then standing- in for the French Coast. Capt. Potts arrived in Town last Thursday Night. All the Leeward- Islands Fleet, outward- bound, is, safely arrived there. It is said a Wager for a very considerable Sum is to be decided next Week, near the Hay- Market, between two Persons of Fortune: The Bett is, that one of the Gentlemen is to have twenty- one Baskets set of a Row a Yard high each ; he is to jump from the Ground into the first, and so on to the last, without stopping, Two to on? is said that it will be performed. To the PRINTER, & c. IHAVE heard it said, that well bred Ladies- had rather do a wicked Thing than an unpolite One. I am unwilling to subscribe to such a Cha- racter of them, because I never can believe they are without religious or moral Virtues. But if they are disposed from Education to over- rate Re- putation for Politeness, I think the Practice of Gaming must expose it to great Hazard. Every- one is sensible of what is apt to pass at Play; and how much Vexation must inflame Altercation, which at best is indelicate, and too often the Pro- ducer of Reflections, and the Source of all Kinds of Ill- Manners. To hazard the being put off her Guard in Speech, is a great Proof of high Indiscretion in any Woman ; and the Accusations of Weakness, or Insinuations of Treachery, are among the Brea- ches of Decorum that are surely most reprehensible. They have been long known, and publicly re- marked, to happen very frequently at Gaming- Tables; which, therefore, can be allowed no Scenes, and much less Schools, of Politeness. It is remarked of Men, that they are apt to grow Reprobates by Gaming, and gradually to desert all Principles of Honour and Humanity These indeed are but the natural Consequences of agitated Passions, and an indulged Spirit of Rapine. Ought not Women, then, to be particularly guar- ded against such Baits to Indecorum, and Seduc- tions to Turpitude ? They should be, in an especial Manner, the Promoters of - Delicacy, and the Cherishers of Innocence ; as all- their, Happiness depends on the Prevalency of the tender Passions ; and the brightest Ornament they can of Course adorn themselves with, is a Sanctity of Manners. The Progress of a Court- Secret. MY Lord obliges my Lady, by Way of at- toning for other Defects,. with a Secret that he has been a Party in, or made acquainted with at * * * * *, but however enjoins her invi- olable Silence on the Subject. This she solemnly promises, and thinks she performs, by only trail- ing her Waiting Woman with it, who is the Keeper of all her most precious Secrets. Abigail tells it to my Lord's spruce Valet at a Tete- a- Tete in my Lady's Dressing- Room, as soon as her La- dyship is gone out; and the obliging Valet com- municates it, in the like Manner, to his favourite House- Maid, when she comes to put my Lord's Apartment into Order; the House- Maid tells the Under- Butler of it, when they are shut up toge- ther in his Pantry ; and he informs the Kitchen- Maid of it,' when she goes up Stairs to put on a clean Apron ; the Kitchen- Maid takes the first Opportunity of communicating it to the smartest Footmen, one after another, in private ; and they embrace the earliest Occasions for reporting it to all their Party- coloured Brethren that use the se- veral Ale- Houses in the Neighbourhood. The Report coming from my Lord's Servants, it im- mediately gains full Credit ; and it. lastly flies from Journeymen Tradesmen that use the Ale- Houses, to their several Masters ; who are proud of carrying it to Coffee- Houses, as News re- ceived by an authentic Channel. From the Cof- fee- Houses it spreads to all the private Families in Town, who have commonly heard it before it gets into News- Papers ; and then great Men, perhaps, wonder how Puss got out of the Bag. To a Young Gentleman, whose Third Mistress was married THOU, hapless Youth, do'st my Compassion move, To lose the third dear Object of thy Love ; Of all the Vot'ries Hearts at Cupid's Shrine, None more susceptible of Love than thine ; For Beauty you've a most profound Regard :-- Pity that Worth shou'd meet with such Reward ! ODE TO GRATITUDE, CAN Man in Plenty thankless live, And take what Heav'n vouchsafes to give With Unconcern can he behold Yon' solar Orb of dazzling Gold, And fee unmov'd each dying Plant and Flow'r, Confess the Fiat of its vegetative Pow'r ? II. The Lapses of the chequer'd Year Can he review, and not revere : And, while with raptur'd Eye he views, Things form'd, and varied to his Use, Can he in lordly Riot waste his Days, Nor from his Heart ejaculate one Note of Praise? III. He can— whilst he unlicens'd roves, Thro' Sin's gay Walks, and tempting Groves; Whilst yet he quaffs from Pleasure's Bowl Spontaneous Poison to his Soul; From Vice to Vice whilst yet he dares to roam, And recollective Thought is absent from her Home. IV. The Spring returns with blooming Face, The panting Summer runs its Race, Next Autumn, richest of the Year, And Winter lagging in the Rear ; Yet tho' these Heralds Time's swift Ebb proclaim, Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, find him still the same. V. Come GRATITUDE, my Soul refine, And make thy Poet half divine ; Teach me to sing, in deathless Lays, My glorious Benefactor's Praise : Come smiling Cherub from thy blest Abode, Uplift me 0n thy Plumes, and bear me to my God.

THE Prussian Minister here has re ceived the Confirmation of a considerable Advantage gained over Part of the Army of the Empire near Saalfeld, on the 2d Instant, the Prussian Generals Schenkendorff and Sybourg. The Imperialists, to the Amount of Six Batta- lions and 800 Horse, commanded by two Gene- rals, had formed themselves upon the Heights of Keimberg, near Saalfeld, where they had placed their Batteries upon, the Approach of General Schenkendorff. General Sybourg advanced on the other Side, and dislodged the Enemy from the Post of Schwartze, where they had two Batta- lions. The Prussians attacked and routed them, and entirely dispersed all that were not killed or taken. The Enemy had one Colonel, one Ma- jor, 29 other Officers, and above 800 Men, taken Prisoners, with four Pair of Colours and six Pieces of Cannon. Those who fled went towards Gressenthal. General Schenkendorff was to march towards Platen. The Marquis de Puente Fuerte, appointed En- voy Extraordinary from Spain to this Republick, arrived here Yesterday.
