POPE and Co. 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 these last five Years.] THURSDAY, JUNE 18, 1761. To the PRINTER of the Bath Chronicle and Weekly Gazette. SIR, ON reading the PhiloSOphical ReFLECTiOns on DEATH in a late Paper of your's ; wherein was observed, that the Courage and Intrepidity with which some Persons meet Death, seems more of a Stoical than a Christian Fortitude, and ( as the Author of those Reflections says) arises more from Ambition, and a Desire of worldly Honour and Grandeur, than from a virtiuous and sober Life;— let such seriously reflect on the different State that Death will consign them to in the next World, as in this short Discourse is plainly shewn. Am, your constant Reader, & c. A Short Discourse on DEATH. IT is appointed for all Men once to die; the Certainty of which it so well known and be lieved by us, that no Person ever disputed it:- But the Manner how, or the Time when, is un- certain to all. That which makes this King of Terrors so dreadful to human Nature, is the State and Con- dition it consigns us to in the next World, and which depends on our Demeanour in this : For, according as we behave ourselves in this Life, so will be our Reward or Punishment in the next.— If we have wasted our Time ( that precious Ta- lent given us by God to work out our Salvation) in Vice and Intemperance, and wholly neglected the Duties of Religion, ' tis no Wonder the Thought of our approaching Death is so dread- ful Jo us. For who can look back on the Actions of a Life spent in Vice and Intemperance, and not tremble at those Sins which were once the dar- ling Objects of our Desires, when we are entering upon that unchangeable State from which we know there is no Redemption ?— what would we give then were it in our Power recall those pre- cious Moments we have lavish'd away in Sin and Vanity ?— How can we reflect on Eternity, and the Account we are then hastening to give, with- out Horror and Confusion at our past Folly— Or how can we with any tolerable Assurance rely on the Mercies of God, through Christ, when we have despised and contemned his holy and righteous Laws, and spent our Lives in Sin and Wickedness. This is that which gives Death its Sting, and arms him with Weapons against us, in our last Moments. But to those who have endeavour'd through the Grace and Assistance of God's holy Spirit, to live according to his Laws, and made the Practice of Religion their Duty,— when they come to lie on a Death- Bed, cannot only meet this King of Terrors without Fear, but with some Degree of Comfort and Satisfaction, being well assured that Almighty God willr for the Sake and through the Merits of Christ, accept of their sincere tho' imperfect Repentance. What Comfort it will be for us, at the Hour of Death, so reflect on a well- spent Life, and that we have endeavour'd to perform our Duty with Sincerity, and in Obedience to the Command of God, tho' very imperfectly!— this will give us Hope and Assurance of our eternal Salvation, through Christ : This it was that made the Rev. Mr- KETTLEWELL, with a pious Confidence, say to them that were with him just before he died, that he was going without the least Distrust, without the least Misgiving, into a Place of ever- lasting Joy and Bliss ; after which he made a short Prayer, and then resign'd his Life; with a full Assurance of a blessed Immortality. And was it not a Life spent in the Service of Christ, that made the Apostle St. Paul desire to be dissolv'd, and to leave this World, because he knew there was laid up for him a Crown of Glory, as a Reward for his pious Labours? Is it not therefore our greatest Wisdom and Prudence, to endeavour by a virtuous and holy Life to prepare ourselves for a happy Death, and a blessed Eter- nity. This is that great and important Business for which we were sent into the World, and which very highly concerns us all : For Death will certainly translate us to endless Joys, or con- sign us to everlasting Torments; nothing can therefore be more prudent for us, than to take such Measures, that we may secure the one, and avoid the other. To this End, let us set apart some Time in our Retirement for the Exercise of those Virtues we shall most stand in Need of at the Hour of Death ; that by a sincere Repentance, and a well- grounded Faith, we may chearfully resign our Souls into the Hands of our blessed Saviour and Redeemer; that so We may depart this World, in an earnest Expectation of a blessed Resurrection to eternal Life, through his Merits who died for us, and will at our Deaths translate us to his eternal Rest, if we sincerely serve and obey him To Miss*****, of Bath. MORE Beauty sure ne'er Nymp'h possess'd, More Truth sure ne'er such Beauty bless'd. All that's good, and all that's fair, In Height of Lustre shine in her. Make, gracious Heav'n, this Wonder mine, With Joy I'll other Joys resign. To a CELEBRATED PAINTER. SKILFUL Artist! Painter, hear How my Lyre delights the Ear; And while it charms thy ravish'd Heart, Exert the Wonders of thy Art. Draw a People blithe and gay, Laughing, sporting Life away ; Let them beat in Dance the Ground, While their Pipes the Bacchae sound ; And, if thou canst Perfection give, Bid every breathing Figure live ; And then, left Life insipid prove. To make them happy, bid them LOVE. Friday's and Saturday's POSTS. Arriv'd a Mail from FLANDERS. France. PARIS, May 29. CAPTAIN Cornie, Commander of the Proteus, which took the Ajax India- man, set out Yesterday for Quiberon, with a private Commission. VANNES, May 29. The Conven- tion concluded on the 13th, for an Exchange of Prisoners, hath not been carried into Execution, because the English General refused to ratify it. The Signals on the 22d informed us, that the Works of the Besiegers were little advanced since the 19th ; and as the Citadel is built on a Rock, and hath good Casemates, it may employ the English some Time. And if the Siege should be protracted, it must be raised on Account of the powerful Succours which are preparing for it. The last Accounts bring, that they did not despair of throwing Succours into the Citadel. It is for that End, that the twelve Ships of the Line, some Frigates, and seven Prames, are sitting out at Brest and Rochefort, to form a Squadron which will be ready in a Fortnight. The Place can hold out ' till that Time.—[ The Prames which are built in France have two Decks ; on the lower of which are 26 Guns, thirty- two Pounders, and on the upper Decks three Mortars; they draw little Wa- ter, are of great Length and Breadth, and rigged af- ter a Ketch Fashion.] ROCHELLE, May 26. Every Measure is taking for the Security of the Isle of Rè. Warlike Stores and some Squadrons of Dragoons are already sent over to it. The Duke de Choiseuil having, it is said, informed the Marshal de Senecterre, that an English Fleet, with 12,000 Land Forces, threatned our Coasts, the Marshal, to guard agrinst any Attempt of the English, has kept three Regiments; which will enable him to repel any Attack. Seven Prames which arrived at Rochefort on the 15th, were to go round next Day to the Mouth of the Loire. LONDON, JUNE 11. On Tuesday Evening arrived an Express from Belleisle, dated the 31st ult. which we hear brings Advice, that our Troops had not then taken the Citadel, but that they had made several Breaches, and were in Hopes of being Masters of it in two or three Days ; that the Fire from the Citadel began greatly to slacken, from which it was ima- gined the Garrison were short of Ammunition. These Dispatches were brought by the Bonetta Sloop, which was oliged to put into Falmouth by contrary Winds. By an Express arrived this Morning from Belleisle we hear, that on the 30th past at Night the Enemy made a Sally, by which they have killed between 4 and 500 of our Men. It is said that the General and seven Officers are wounded. Seven Ships of the Line are ordered to sail from Portsmouth immediately, to join Com- modore Keppel. By the last Ship that sailed for Belleisle, there was sent a large Quantity of live Poultry, for the Use of the British Officers, and a Quantity of Porter for the Use of the Soldiers, as a Present from a Great Man. The Expedition Fleet now fitting out, will not sail ' till an Account is received of the Reduction of Belleisle. Orders are given out for the Board of Works to get every Thing in Readiness against the 6th of October next, for the Coronation. Yesterday being the Birth- Day of the Princess Amelia, her Royal Highness received the Com- pliments of the Nobility, & c. on that Occasion, at her House in Cavendish- Square. The Board of Works have ordered Part of the Stables in the Stable- Yard, St. Jame's, to be taken down, in order to widen it. By a List given in last Week, it appears that, the Militia of this Kingdom, already embodied, are 25,000. We hear that the Cumberland Man of War, of 70 Guns, is lost off Goa, going from Bombay to join Admiral Stevens. She had been in the East- lndies eight Years. The Postscript of a Letter from Holland, which came over by the last Mail, says, that they had just received good Intelligence that a large Body of Russians was advancing, by long Marches, to join General Laudohn, and invade Silesia. The Letters from Paris observe, that their Hopes of Assistance from Denmark were entirely dissipated; the State of the Finances rendering the Conditions of the Treaty impossible. Private Letters from Berlin inform us, that the King of Prussia, before he set out for Silesia, held a grand Council with the Margrave Charles and his Ministers. He told them, That tired out by the present destructive War, and moved by the Calamities it had brought upon all Parts of Germany, he was absolutely determined to risque his ALL npon this Campaign, that it might be the last. After this, he declared to them his Intentions concerning the Succession to his Crown, and the Manner he would have his Estates governed, in Case he should be cut off by a short Fit of Illness, or should fall in Battle. They write from Hamburgh, of the 2d Inst. that by Letters from Dantzick, they had an Ac- count that thirty- six Russian Transport, with Provisions and warlike Stores, were drove ashore and wrecked near that Place in a violent Storm. By order of the Pope, 6000 Crowns have been distributed among the Inhabitants of Monte Lauti, whole Houses were destroyed by the late Earthquake. Several Letters from Rome mention the Arrival there of the two pretended Prophets who lately made their Appearance at Cologn.— As they are taken great Notice of by the Pope, several Cardinals, and Priests, there is little Doubt but we shall soon hear of some wonderful Matters from that Quarter. They are said to have wrought one Miracle already, in arriving at that City before the Person who rode Post to inform his Holiness that they were sctting out on their Journey. Extract of a Letter from SOUTH- CAROLINA, dated April 16, 1761. " Our Coast has been much infected by a small French Schooner Privateer, mounting 14 Carriage Guns, 10 Swivels, and 70 Men. She has lately taken a Brig from New- York, and carried her into St. Augustine. Notwithstanding all the Remonstrances of our Governor and Councils, that Place continues to be a Refuge for the Enemy. In the mean Time, the Face of Things is vastly changed here, within these few Months. Since the late Successes of his Majesty's Arms, the In- dians begin to think better of it ; and we want nothing but another Blow at the Enemy, to ren- der this Province one of the most flourishing in all America." The following threatning Letter, directed to Mr. George Catter, being found near Haverhill in Suffolk, his Majesty's Pardon, and a Reward of 20l. are offered for the Discovery of the Ac- complice or Accomplices therein, except the Per- son who actually wrote the said Letter.

[ VOL. fertile Plains of Asia, Candia was governed by its own Princes, and long enjoyed the invaluable Gift of Liberty. But Ambition, that Canker of the human Mind, that Scourge of Society, instigated some of its own Princes to usurp the Privileges of their Subjects, and instead of labouring to promote the Happiness of their People, exercised every Kind of Cruelty and Injustice. Among these degenerate Princes was ANTILIS- TOS, famous only for Oppression, and following the Dictates of his own Passions. Solely intent on his unmanly Pleasures; he disregarded all the Sufferings of his People, and was deaf to the Cries of those who suffered from the Hand of Oppression, or groaned under the oppressive Yoke of Cruelty. ARISTES was one of those unfortunate Persons who felt the weighty Rod of unrelenting Tyranny He resided at a small Village at the Foot of Mount Ida ; and was as remarkable for Candour, Justice, and Humanity, as ANTILISTOS was for their opposite Vices. He married SABINA, a young Lady adorned with every Accomplishment that could render her agreeable. Her Beauty was superior to that of all the Ladies of Candia, and her Love for her Husband famous to a Proverb. ANTILISTOS often heard of the Charms of SABINA, together with the happy Manner in which she lived with her Husband, and was determined to fee her, that he wight himself be a Witness, whether the Accounts were just or exagerated. Disguising himself therefore in the Habit of a Peasant, he repaired toMountIda, and pretending to be a Person labouring under the Frowns of Fortune, was kindly received by ARISTES, and his amiable Spouse, who did every thing in their Power to soften the Afflictions Of this pretended Sufferer. ANTILISTOS was charmed with the Beauty of SABINA; and though he could not help revering the sincere Kindness of ARISTES, and secretly approving the Happiness and Tranquility that reigned in his House, yet he determined to enjoy the beautifulSABINA, tho' at theExpence of every Virtue that adorns the Mind of a rational Being. Filled with this inhuman Project, he secretly left the House of ARISTES, and, hid behind the fable Veil of Night, entered his Palace unknown to ail but his intimate Friends, whom he had in- trusted with the Secret. He now made large Of- fers to ARISTES, to draw him to the Capital ; but in vain. He knew that Happiness was not to be found in a licentious Court, nor Content in the golded Palaces of Ambition. The Tyran finding it impossible to draw ARIS- TES from his happy Situation in the Country, had Recourse to another Stratagem, and hoped the dazzing Prospect of Wealth and Greatness would prevail on SABINA to quit het solitary Habitation, and exchange her sequestered Seat for the glittering Throne of Candia. But in this he was greatly mistaken; she received his Offers with Disdain, and preferred a Life of virtuous Happiness with her dear ARISTES, to all the Pomp and deceitful Pleasures of Royalty. These Results irritated the Tyrant; he deter- mined to satisfy his Passion, tho' he employed for that very Purpose every Instrument of Wickedness, and trampled under Foot every Precept of Virtue and Religion. He had however again Recourse to ARISTES, offered him the highest Posts of the Kingdom, and at the sameTime to place his whole Family on the highest Pinnacle of Honour. But these glittering Promises found- no. better Recep- tion than the former; he enjoyed every Thing he wished, and refused to exchange Virtue for Vice, arid domestic Tranquility for the Commotions and Distractions of Government. ANTILISTOS finding it in vain to hope for Success by the delusive Prospect of Riches and so long desired, Made immediate Preparations for the Nuptials, which were to be performed in the Temple of Diana, and omitted nothing that had a Tendency to augment the Splendor of the Cere- mony. Thé most magnificent Robes were pro- vided, and all the great Men of the Kingdom com- manded to attend in Person, The Day appointed being arrived, SABINA ap- peared dressed in the richest Manner, and entered with ANTILISTOS the Temple of Diana. She approached the Statue of theGoddess, and receiving from one of her Friends a Bowl filled with a plea- sant Liquor of her own preparing, she drank as the Custom was, One- half of it ; and presented, with her own Hand, the Bowl to ANTILISTOS, who readily drank the Remainder. SABINA, at feeing her Scheme had succeeded according to her Wishes, fell on her Knees at the Feet of the Statue of Diana, and addressed the Goddess in the following Manner. " O thou that knowest the inmost Recesses of the human Heart, be my true Witness, with what painful La bour I have supported Life since the Death of my beloved Husband, with what Difficulty I have pre- vented these Hands from putting a Period to my own Existence ! with what Indifference I have be- held all the Objects of this fleeting Scene, and enjoyed no other Pleasure that the Hopes of executing that Vengeance which I have this Day compleated. " And now, with the greatest Pleasure I go to meet she Shade of the dear Companion of my Soul, who, in Life or Death, I always loved much better than myself s And thou inhuman Tyrant, who haft long disgraced the Throne of Candia, tremble at the Vengeance of the Gods, which now awaits thee ; and instead of the nuptial Bed, give Orders for preparing a lading Couch in the darksome Apartments of the Tomb ; For I have offered thee a Sacrifice to the Shade of the injured ARISTES." ANTILISTOS, who already felt the fatal Effects of the poisonous Draught, loft his wanted For- titude ; his brutal Courage forsook him, Convulsi- ons seized every Part of his Body, his Body, he fell at the Feet of the Statue, and, with a Groan that terrified the whole Assembly, yielded up his Breath. SABINA, feeing theTyrant expire, lifted up her Eyes to Heaven, and cried out, " My dear ARISTES, thou Source of all my earthly Comfort, I have bestowed on thy Death my last utmost Gift, my Tears and Vengeance. Nothing farther remains for me to perform. I fly from the World to meet thee, my Lord, my Husband. And ye immortal Powers that direct the Affairs of this sublunary World, pardon this daring At- tempt, in executing that Vengeance which be- long to you. Surrounded with Objects that attrait the Senses from their Duty, and agitated by Commotions that lead the Mind affray, the belt are continually subject to Errors We fee every Thing through the Cloud of Passion, which, like the Mists of the Morning, magnifies every Particular, and at once augments our Misfortunes, and stimulates us with the Desire of Revenge. But I feel the chilling Poison at my Heart ; the material Objects vanish from my Sight, and the tenebrous Veil of Darkness surrounds my Head. Farewel, ye earthly Man- sions : I fly to meet thee, my dear ARISTES, thou inseparable Companion of my Soul." At these Words she fell at the Feet of the Statue, and expired. Thus fell the Tyrant ANTILISTOS, and, by hisFall, paid at once theLife he had often forfeited to Justice ; and freed his Country from that op- pressive Yoke under which it had long groaned. And we should do well to remember, that the Ven geance of Heaven, though it may sleep for a Time, will at last burst on the Heads of all those who de- spise the Maxims of Justice, and laugh at the Precepts of Virtue, defy the Frowns of Heaven, and challenge the Arm of Omnipotence to strike the Blow. For then we should be careful of our Actions, and make the Happiness of our Fellow- Mortals a principal Concern ; we should be care- ful how we pass the inchanting Gardens of Plea- sure, and never venture to sleep on the Couch of Intemperance : We should fly the beaten Paths that terminate in Destruction, and walk steadily in those that will certainly conduct us to Happiness and Joy.

WHOEVER are inclin'd to become Adventurers in thé PRESENT STATE- LOTTERY, may be supply'd with TICKETS By William and Robert Clement, LINEN- DRAPERS, in Wade's- Passage, BATH. In this Lottery ( notwithstanding there are TWO Prizes of TEN THOUSAND POUNDS each, besides Thirty- eight other Capital ones) there are but very little more than FOUR Blanks to a Prize ! ( and no Prize of less Value than Twenty Pounds ! ) each Blank valued at six Pounds, which we buy, as alio the Prizes, ( and likewise Blanks, or Prizes, of former Lotteries ; or we give in Exchange for them, Tickets, Shares or Chances, in the present Lottery) and give the most Money for either of them as soon as they are drawn. And in order to accommodate all those of this City, and its Neighbourhood, or others who resort hither, ( that please to favour us with their Commands) who don't like to risk all they intend to venture, on one Number, but rather chuse a Part, in several : We have therefore divided, a Variety of Tickets, into Shares, and Chances, such as, Halves, Quar- ters, Eighths, and Sixteenths, ( a single one of ei- ther Share, or Chance, any one Person, may be furnished with ; the Money arising from them, will be paid by us, as soon as they are drawn; which we propose felling here, every Day, at the fame Price, and on the very fame Terms, and Con- ditions, as they are fold, by the principal Brokers of Credit, in London. The Price of Chances, Shares, and Tickets, this Day, are as follow : Greatness, was determined to put a Period to the Life of ARISTES, flattering himself that SABINA, when deprived of her Husband, would listen to his Proposals, and sacrifice her Virtue to the inchant- ing Ideas of Power and Splendor. Filled with this detestable Project, he employed a Person long practised in the Path of Wickedness to put it in Practice. Accordingly the inhuman Monster re- paired to the House of ARISTES, and, under Pre- tence of communicating to him a Secret of the last Importance, stabbed him to the Heart with a Poinard. SABINA now deprived of a Husband she adored, abandoned herself to the most frantic Grief; and when her first Passions subsided, became a Prey to Melancholy and Despair. In this Condition she was visited by her Friends, who used every Method to comfort her, and employed every Argument to persuade her to leave the Place, where every Object increased her Distress, by renewing the Idea of her beloved Companion. But she was deaf to their Advice, and seemed determined to continue in that Retreat where she had enjoyed so many Hours with her dear ARISTES. In this Manner she continued to brood over her Sorrows, and meditate on her Grief,' till at last the Tyrant ANTILISTOS renewed his Solicitations, and even offered to make her his Partner in the Throne of Candia. Her Grief, at hearing the very Name of that abandoned Monster of Impiety, knew no Bounds, and had not her Friends inter- posed, she had certainly sacrificed the Messenger who brought so detested an Offer to the Means of her Husband. But her Senses in a few Moments resumed their Sent, and her Desire of revenging the Death of ARISTES prevailed upon her to lig- nisy that she was ready to embrace the Honour intended her by the Prince of Candia. The Messenger returned with the welcome News; to ANTILISTOS, who, eager to enjoy what he had The Purchasers of Shares, are entitled to Part of the Prizes, and Blanks,— the Purchasers of Chances, to the Prizes only. We register Tickets, Shares, and Chances, ( whither bought of ourselves, or of others) at Sixpence each Number, and the earliest Notice of their Success will be sent by the first Post: ( from London) to any Part of Great Britain or Ireland.

The Draw- ing of the Lottery will begin on Monday the 16th of November next, at Nine o'Clock in the Morn- ing. The Prizes and Blanks in this Lottery, like all other Stocks, ( on account of the very great Prospect of Peace) will fell for much more Money than they otherwise would have done, had the War been like to continue; and it is not unlikely but that Tickets will very soon be much higher, ( so now is the Time to purchase them, or never) es- pecially as a general Opinion prevails ( in case Peace suddenly succeed the meeting of the ap- pointed Congress, of which there is but very little Doubt) that there will be no mure Latteries for many Years, Doses.

And but one Wish goes thro' this happy Nation ; While Songs of Triumph mark the golden Time, Accept, for once, our grateful Thanks in Rhyme; In plain, but honest Language, void of Art; Simplicity's the Language of the Heart— We shun poetic Ornaments, we scorn ' em; Your bounties want no Fiction to adorn ' em : Tho' in continued Streams your Favours flow'd, We still have ask'd, and you have still bestow'd, Have granted each Petition o'er and o'er,. Yet we, like other Beggars— ask for more. What can we ask, blest with such Favours past ? This only— that those Favous still may last. May this Day's Joy return with many a Year, And, when it comes, with added Joys appear! May Art and Science reach the top most Heights, May ev'ry Muse prepare for nobler Fligths ? May ev'ry Blessing ev'ry Hour encrease, And all be crown'd with that chief Blessing Peace ! May he, that Briton- born, who glads all Hearts, Who to this Land unbounded Love imparts, Unites each Party, ev'ry Art befriend, And e'en to this poor Spot a Smile extends; May he, in Fame, our warmest Hopes out- run, As you in Happiness— for both are one ; O may the Summer answer to the Spring! And that it may, good Heav'n— Long live the King!' /. 3, d.

Marshal Daun's Force, since his Junction with General Guafco, is very considerable. Some of his Dispositions seem to indicate that lie intends to attack Prince Henry, whose Army doth not exceed 35 or 40,000 Men ; whilst the Army of the Empire, reinforced by some Austrian Regiments, marches straight to Berlin ; the Inhabitants of which City, accor- ding to some Accounts, are retiring with their belt Effects. We are informed from very good Authority, that our Government arid M. Bussy go on with the Negotiations of Peace in an amicable Mari- ner, and that there - is a great Probability of bringing it to a speedy and happy Conclusion. Last Week the Freedom of the City of Dublin in a Gold Box was presented to Admiral Hawke. It is now said that Sir Edward Hawke and Commodore Lord Howe, will most certainly fail with the Expedition Fleet in a few Days, on board of which not less than 10,000 Forces are to be embarked. A Camp is ordered to be marked out on Houn- slow Heath. Letters from Hanover of the 2d Instant advise. that they expected the Campaign to open every Day. The English Troops, who were encamped in the Neighbourhood of Hamelen, are marched towards Warbourg, where a considerable Force is assembling under General Sporcken. The City of Munster is made a complete Fortress, abundantly furnished with Provisions and Stores, and strong enough, both by Nature and Art, with a Garrison of 4000 Men to resist a whole Army: So that the Apprehensions of its being attacked, are all vanished. Besides, before the French could attempt to fit down before it, it behoved them to dislodge theHereditaryPrince from his advantageous Position near Notteln, wich would be a Work of Difficulty. The Swedish Court hath sent to hire Houses at Augsbourg for their Plenipotentiaries at the Con- gress, all the Members of which are expected there by the Beginning of July.

On the 10th the Corps, that was encamped near We- sel, crossed the Lippe, and placed their Vanguard at Galen. The fame Day, the Corps, that had been at Desseldorff, arrived in the Camp at Wesel. That which was encamped at Rees, was to march the 10th, and was to join the Army at Padderbourg on the IIth.

The Number of the Enemy slain during the Siege, is said to be very great. We are every Moment in Expedition of an- other Express from Belleisle, with the Particulars. An Express was sent off Yesterday Morning for Belleisle. Orders are given for all the Officers going out with the Expedition Fleet, to repair on board, on 0r before Saturday next. We hear that the Expedition Fleet, which is ready for Sea, is. to be commanded by Sir Ed- ward Hawke and Lord Howe. The Guns in St. James's Park, and at the Tower, were fired off at Eleven o'Clock on Sa- turday Night, on Occasion of the good News of the Surrender of Palais. We hear that after Major- General Crauford had the Misfortune to be taken Prisoner atBelle- isle, Lord Pulteney ( who had then the principal Command of the Royal Volunteers) gained im- mortal Honour by his gallant Behaviour. Near 1800 Letters were brought on Saturday Morning to the Post Office, which came by the Melampe Frigate from the Forces at Belleisle. By a Letter from Belleisle we are informed, General Hodgson, the reft of the English Officers, and the Chevalier de St, Croix, all dined together in the Town of Palais, on Monday last. It is said that Colonel Howe has had the Calf of his Leg carried off by a Cannon Ball, but is in a fine Way of doing well. Fourteen Waggons are taking in Stores at the Tower, which will soon set off for Portsmouth, to be delivered on board , the Expedition Fleet.— Among the rest, there are many Scaling- Ladders, a great Number of Wheel- Barrows, and other in- trenching Tools, with Timbers, & c. fit for con- structing Batteries: There are a great Number of other Articles, with a Train, of Artillery prepa- ring at Woolwich, to be embarked on board the said Fleet.
