[ Vol. I.] On the malignant Poison which too much spreadeth itself among Youth. MAN is a thoughtful ami rational Being; else he could not be accountable for his Actions ; and yet, from a Survey of his general Conduit, one would scarce imagine he ever tho't or reasoned at all. The Happiness of old Age in a great Measure depends upon the Regularity of Youth; but what little Forecast is there dis- cernable in young Men to make that reasonable and happyProvision ? Heat and Passion, generally speaking, are theirBosom Counsellors: Few have Judgment enough to discern what is commenda- ble; and fewer have Prudence to corect their Follies. Inconstancy and Want of Thought ap- pear in every Action : They follow the Bent of present Inclination, without Sense of Duty, Friendship, or Gratitude. They are altogether impatient of Instruction and Reproof, and deaf to the Commands of Reason and Virtue. In short, thay are Slaves to the irregular Motions of Passion, and false Pleasure is their principal Delight. I have been carry'd into these Reflections by a very dear purchas'd Experience of the Reality and Truth of them. I had the Happiness to be born to a Fortune sufficient to have supported me in the Progress of any Study, and was blest with Parts so lively and quick, that I impute my Ne- glect of Application to nothing more than their Vivacity. I read Men more than Books, but my Misfortune was to take an improper Choice. The Serious and Thoughtful were dull and insipid to me ; the Gay and Debonnair were the Com- panions I most admired. My Fortune enabled me to keep a slender Equipage, and my ill- chosen Friends gave me Encouragement and Help to hasten the Consumption of it. Schemes of Gal- lantry captivated my very Soul, and if any un- welcome Thought ever stole in upon me to chastise my Conduit, Drinking was the Remedy ( tho' a very deceitful one) to drive from my Mind such an intruding Friend. Two beastly Deities be- came the only Objects of my Adoration : I rose up early to follow strong Drink, and nocturnal Debauchery too often inflamed me. The Incon- veniences however of both gave a happy Turn to my Thoughts, and the Decay of my Fortune awaken'd my Reason, and was very instrumental In ripening my Judgment. I now thought it Time to recover what I had lost. I apply'd myself with Diligence to the Study of the Law; in a few Years was call'd to the Bar, and became eminent enough to recall my wasted Fortune with a plentiful Interest. I now live without Practice, and can review all that I have done for others, without any Reason to repent that I have enriched myself. My only Pennance ( and I apprehend nothing but Death will end it) is my suffering for Follies committed when I had no Thought. My Body, in almost every Vessel of it, daily reproaches me, and every Alteration of the Air adds Severity to my Pains. In thisParticular I am esteemed as a well- regulated Barometer; and more Application could not be made to me, if I had the sole Power of the Wea- ther. Not a Soul will stir either on a Journey, or for Pleasure, before he's satisfy'd from me whether he mult take his Surtout with him. I don't doubt, was I to take but moderate Fees for my Advice in this single Point, but I should soon acquire an immense Fortune. These Hints, I assure you, are not made to encourage youthful Debauchery, in order to ac- quire such Knowledge from Experience; for I can safely satisfy you that nothing in Reality can be a dearer Purchase. I intend these Reflections rather as Dissuasives from such malignant Poison, too apt to spread itself amongst unthinking Youth. And if the Certainty of these Observa- tions will tend to the Preservation of any from the like Misfortune, I shall be contended to be made the Parish Weather- Glass to the Day of my Death. My Pains, instead of receiving Comfort from an Addition of Companions in Misery, will be very much asswaged, if the Terror of them shall keep others from deserving the fame. R. ODE on the CREATION. YE heav'nly Hosts! my Voice inspire, To praise the Pow'r Supreme ! And touch my Lips with holy Fire, Whilst GOD Himself'S my Theme. GOD, who from Atoms form'd the Heav'ns, From Chaos call'd the Earth ; By whom th' Almighty Word was giv'n, That gave all Nature Birth. His Eye beheld the vast Obscure, The formless Deep survey'd, When Light transparent, Essence pure, Its genial Beams display'd. That Goo, whole all - creating Hand His mighty Pow'r declar'd, And at the Breath of whose Command The Firmament appear'd. Resplendent in the glorious. East The Sun diffus'd his Rays, And in the Chambers of the West The Moon her paler Blaze. The fable Mantle of the Night Unnumber'd Stars adorn, ' Till wasted on the Wings of Light, Comes issuing in the Morn. Far o'er th' unfathom'd wat'ry Bed He stretch'd his awful Rod ; The Floods retir'd, the Waters fled, Obedient to the GOD. Thus fram'd the circumambient Sky, And Earth's Foundations laid, He spake to the affrighted Sea— Be here thou proud Waves staid. Enormous Hills her Surface pave ; Mountains on Mountains rise, Emergent from the parting Wave, To strike th' astonish'd Skies. All rude, unsightly, unadorn'd, The joy less Desart lay, ' Till teeming from her fruitful Womb The pregnant Soil gave Way. The tender Grafs, the flow'ry Herb, O'erspread the verdant Earth ; And oy'ry Tree, and ev'ry Shrub, Admir'd its sudden Birth. His Voice created Bead and Bird, His Breath the Reptile Train, And all th' innumerable Herd That graze the wat'ry Plain. Of all Creation last and best, To dignify the Whole, Like GOD himself He form'd the Dust, And gave the Dust a Soul. Tremble, O Atheist ! and revere The Majesty of Heaven ! Approach it with an holy Fear, And hope to be forgiven. Praise him to all Eternity, Who Life eternal gave ; And know, th: it that Almighty He, Who cou'd Create, can Save. The other Pieces we have received from the same kind Hand who favour'd us with the above, shal be iuserted as soon as possible.— The Translation from the Count de Vordac's Memoirs, and the poetical Epistle to ***, Esq. will be in our next. Early Rising very commendable. IF the Practice of Rising betimes can be proved to be universally beneficial to Mankind ; if it can be shewn to have been always mentioned with the highest Encomiums ; and if it can be made out, that the greatest as well as belt of Men were Early Risers, nothing farther needs to be laid in Recommendation of it. Now, that it contributes, and indeed universal- ly, to the Happiness of the World, will appear from the following Considerations. In the first Place, is Life not a Happiness, or, if you like the Term better, a real Enjoyment? this none will deny; and therefore as Early Rising is really an Addition to Life, I mean, to active and conscious Life, it mult be an additional En- joyment, which every one that pleases may, and which evey Early Riser actually does enjoy. Another Argument to prove the Advantage of Early Rising, may be drawn from its contributing to the Health, Activity and Vigour of Animal Life. It not only adds to, and in a Manner lengthens the Duration of Life; but heightens, so to speak, its very Degree and Reality. All the Powers of Human Nature are thereby quick- ened, and made to perform their several Func- tions with greater Force and Energy ; the Conse- quence of which is a considerable Augmentation of actual Enjoyment, we should otherwise lose. Again, if we turn our Thoughts to rational Life, we shall find no small Advantage resulting from Early Rising. What Season so proper for performing the Duties of Religion and Piety ; are not our Minds then composed, calm, and ferene ? does not the Dawning and Return of the Day naturally inspire us with exalted Ideas of the great Creator and Governor of the World, who at first ordained and still preserves the delightful Vicissitude of Day and Night, so admirably cal- culated to promote the Happiness of all the Inha- bitants of this Globe ! is not every Passion then hush'd, and the Mind in the belt Frame imagi- nable for paying to the great God of Nature that Adoration, Praise and Homage, which all his reasonable Creatures owe him ? With Regard to social Duties, what more necessary than Early Rising ? Is it possible for a Man, who dozes away the Morning on his down Bed, and spends one third of the Day in the enervating Embraces of Death like Sleep, to dis- charge the Duties either of private, or publick Life, like the Man who gets up betimes, sedu- lously to mind his Business, and careful not to lose the balmy Influence of the most early Rays of the Sun ? The latter has the Pleasure to fee the greater, the molt essential Part of this Work done, before others begin ; the Consequence of which is, that he has Leisure to purine new Ad- vantages, new Schemes of Utility both to him- self and others : Whereas the Sluggard, by the too liberal Indulgence of his beloved Sleep", dis- ables himself from performing even indispensible Duties of his Station : Instead of Nourishing and refreshing, it serves only to enervate the whole human Frame ; and actually disables those who indulge it, from ailing with that Spirit, Resolu- tion and Vigour, they would otherwise do. As to improving the Mind in Knowledge, the Advantage of Rising Early is no less evident. In the Morning all the Faculties of our Soul are awake, fresh, and vigorous. What over Night defied our Study to find out, now voluntarily submits itself to our View; we fee, we compre- hend what formerly was thought above the Reach of human Understanding. Now, as Early Rising ¡ not only enables the Mind to understand Things more easily and better , but likewise affords Time for letting about the Study of them, it must be allowed to be highly conducive to the Attainment of Knowledge. FRIDAY'S and Saturday'S POSTS. Arri- vd a Mail from FLANDERS. France. PORT L'ORIENT, June 17. HE English Squadron which reduced Belleisle, now forms three Divisions, one of which, consisting of ten Ships of War, is before Brest, another be- fore Rochefort, and the third before Port Louis. Some English Ships have alio ap- peared before Dunkirk and Havre- de- Grace ; and we at Port l'Orient are as much threatened as any. The English may succeed against the Island of Oleron more easily than at Belleisle ; but St. Cas will be a Warning to them not to meddle with our Continent. As for the reft, they may do what they please on the Ocean, we shall take our Revenge at Hanover. For the Security of Port l'Orient, M. de Marbeuf is ordered to repair, with 3000 Men, to the Isle of Grouais, which covers our Harbour. Brussels Gazette. London, July 2. The French are endeavouring to unite their scattered Naval Power, to the Equipment of such Ships as are in the Ports of the Ocean, of which Armament the following is said to be an exact Account. Ships in the Road of Brest, 6 Line of Battle, 2 Frigates ; in the River Charante, 9 Line of Battle, 3 Frigates ; and in the River Vi- laine, 2 Line of Battle. Ships: Total, 17 Line of Battle Ships, and 5 Frigates : Besides 7 Prames at the Entrance of the River Charante and in St. Martin's Road.- In order to counteract the Enemy's Designs, we have a sufficient Squadron cruizing off Brest, under the Command of Capt. Buckle ; nine Sail of the Line, besides Frigates, Fire- Ships, and a Bomb, in Basque Road, under the Command of Sir Thomas Stanhope ; the Remainder of the Squadion, consisting of eight Sail of the Line, 3 Frigates, 2 Bombs, and 7 Sloops, are in Belleisle, waiting Orders for a fur- ther Destination, whilst others of our Cruizers are properly employed to get Intelligence, and on other Services on their Coast. By Advice from Cape Nichola, dated May 14, Admiral Holmes having received Intelligence that there were at Port Louis one French Man of War of 74 Guns, called the Diadem, two Frigates, and fourteen Merchant Ships, ready for failing, had ordered the Cambridge ( foul as she was) to hasten up with the Defianee, the Centaur, the Centurion, and Cerberus, already on the Enemy's Coast ; the Lively he lent back to Port Royal for a Supply of Men, and they were going on an Expedition against Port Louis. The Admiral was then on board the Hampshire. We hear that three Ships of the Line are failed from Belleisle, to join Lord Colvill at Halifax. Likewise, that Commodore Legge is to fail from Halifax with three Ships of the Line and one Fri- gate, with 4000 Land Forces, for the Mississippi. The Troops which failed from New- York on a secret Expedition, under the Convoy of the Su- therland, Falkland, Repulse, and Lizard, are to rendezvous at Guadalupe. We are just informed, that the secret Expedition, which failed from New- York in May last, is gone against the Neutral Islands in the West- Indies, so that we may soon expect to hear of their being in the Hands of the English. A Gentleman now in Town, present at the ta- king of Belleisle, says, that the real Loss we sus- tained from the Attacks made on the French Re- doubts to the Surrender of the Citadel, did not exceed 400 Men.

The Senate of the City of Hamburgh resolved, on the 22d ult. that a new Ligh - House and Bea- con should be erected upon the Island of Hey- ligeland, at the Mouth of the River Elbe, which are to be lighted Winter and Summer, and not as formerly in the Winter only. Letters from Oporto advise, that on the 6th of June the Inhabitants were much terrified with a violent Shock of an Earthquake, which shook down several Houses, and killed many of the Inhabitants. A. Letter- from Lisbon, dated June 9, says,— " We are Will visited by frequent Repetitions, or Shocks of Earthquakes. The 3d Inst. about Six in the Morning, a violent one alarmed the In- habitants of this Metropolis ; it lasted: a full Minute ; which drove Abundance of People into the Streets, in their Shifts and Shirts, but whi- ther to flee to they were at a Lois. Some of the English repaired in this Condition into their Wine- Lodges for Safety, others on board such English Ships as happened to be at Anchor in the River Tagus." A Letter from Portsmouth, dated June 30 says,--" Last Thursday Night we had the most- dreadful. Storm of . Thunder, Lightning, and Rain,. that Has been known in the Memory of the ol lest Man living. The Waters, from the Sud- denness of the Rain, role near two Feet perpen dicular above the Level of the Shops, so that we were under Water level and Hours, and suffered Considerable Damage." Last Thursday Night, by the Violence of the Lightning, six Deer were struck dead in Bushy Park, and burnt in an extraordinary Manner. The following Account is transmitted from Paris: At Chateauroux near Eolbron, there is a Boy about 13 Years of Age, whole Name is William Gay; and who, it we may believe Number of Persons, has neither cat nor drank any Thing since the 14th of April, 1760. Hi Mouth has a little Tincture of Vermillion ; a pal Red overspreads hisCheeks ; and he has a smiling Countenance. His Belly is, as it were, joined to his Back- Bone, and he voids neither Urine nor Excrement; he deeps regularly and soundly nine Hours every Day. Since he has ceased eat- ing and drinking, he has had the Small- Pox very violently, which has not in the least impaired his Constitution. He used to be ailing during the Time of his taking Nourishment, and litis often been thrown into a Lethargy of three Days Con- tinuance. All the Food which they endeavoured to give him afterwards, he voided through his Nose and Ears. M. Fournier, the Curate of Chateaureux, took himHome to his House for a whole Month, and appears perfectly convinced of the Reality of this extraordinary Fact. An Account of so surprizing a Phenomenon has been communicated to the Royal Academy of Sci- ences. When the Algerine Ambassador made his pub- lic Entry, he was very desirous of having the Lions, he brought over as a Present, led before him, which could not be granted ; however, the fine Horses and curious Sheep he intended tor his Majesty, were admitted into the Cavalcade, but. could not ( as he expected) be drove into the Apartments for the King to see them ; at which his Excellency seemed somewhat disgusted, ' till he was assured by the Lords in Waiting, that it was contrary to the Custom of this Country.— When he was admitted into the Royal Presence, the King told him that he was sorry his Excel- lency had such a bad Day for his public Entry. " No. Sire, ( says the Ambassador) it is not a bad Day, it is a very fine, it is a glorious Day for me, when I have the Honour to behold so great a Monarch as your Majesty." The Camp at Winchester is now compleated, and consists of the seven following Regiments, viz. Wiltshire, Dorsetshire, two Battalions of Hamp- shire, Berkshire, and two Battalions of Glouces- tershire, Wiltshire, with the Artillery, is on the " Right, and the old Battalion of Gloucestershire on the Left. Lieutenant- General the Earl of Ef- fingham has the Command both of the Line, and the Garrison in the City ; which last consists of the Leicestershire Regiment, and one Battalion of Essex ; but the Leicestershire will speedily be relieved by Sir George Saville's Battalion of Yorkshire.

To the Printer of the Bath Chronicle and Weekly. Gazette. SIR, JULY 6, 1761. AS there is nothing that is a greater Cordial to a distress'd Mind than communicating one's Anxieties to those that will sympathize with one in them, or give one Advice ; so do I flatter myself, that by any Admonition which yon may- give, I may be lighten'd from some which fur- round me. But to detain you no longer than is absolutely necessary, I mull beg Leave to inform you, that I am the youngest of two Daughters to a wealthy and reputable Tradesman in this City, in him I have one of the best of Fathers, and shall ever have a due Sense of his Goodness for having given to me the best of Learning, in which he neVer grudg'd nor spared the greatest Expence which could procure me those Qualifications which are necessary for the better Appearance of a Woman in the Eyes of a vain World. Yet, alas ! I have daily the Mortification of being Witness to many Disputes between him and my Mother, occasioned by mere Trifles, wherein the former fails not to Hand up to, ( in- deed rather above) the Prerogative of a Husband, and the latter likes not to yield up her Pleasure to his, and thus do they make their own Lives unhappy, as well as that of every one about them. I have an elder Sister, who being scarce ever well, makes her envy me the Pleasure of Health and Youth, and of each Enjoyment of which she cannot; taste; for being ever indispos'd, and having the Misfortune to be very much , deformed, she thinks that those who are not in a such- like Case, can have no Cause to sigh, no Room for Grief, nor Reason for Anxiety ; but alas! I know too well the Contrary. About a Year and a half ago, my vitiated Fancy and wild Imagination made me fall ( at. first. Sight) desperately in Love with a young Gentleman of ( as it happened) a good Character, and aFortune equal to what I may expected. The Flame was no sooner light, but ' twas sooth'd by me, the fatal Indulgence of which has been of, the most severe Consequence. Romantick Notions and Reflection? in my Re- tirement was always pleasing to me ; especially as; I had some Reason to flatter myself, that my Af- fections were return'd, and thus wrapt up in an- ungovern'd Approbation have I been ever since first I beheld the pleasing Object: And having thus indulg'd my unruly Fancy, I cannot now. withdraw the Esteem I fix'd in that unguarded Hour. Blinded by Love, I have often given too great Reasons by my Sighs, before my Inferiors, to make them suspect the Distemper which had at- tack'd me ; and at length some founded my Sister's, Ears with their Suspicions. No sooner did she know the little she could be inform'd of, but she aquainted me with it, and intreated me to inform her of the Truth, pro- mising me at the fame Time, never to reveal whatever I should intrust her with; too easily I believ'd her, and too soon inform'd her of the whole. But the Secret being too heavy for her weak Shoulders, she the next Day releas'd herself of the Burthen, by telling my Father all that I had told her, adding ( rather than diminishing) to the Truth. The Moment he knew it, his Anger was kindled against me, for having plac'd my Affections on a Person without hiss Consent. I am at present, with the utmost Struggle be- twixt Duty and Inclination ; tho' I am resolved never to let the Dictates of the latter, oppose the Right of the former. As I do wholly resign my Desires to the Will of Providence, I think that Time and Patience may, one Time or other, bring Duty and Inclination into Unity and Con- cord. I beg the Favour of your Advice in your well- approv'd Paper, and you'll oblige Your constant Reader, And bumble Servant, JULIA. Our fair Authoress has related her Story so agreable, that she has left us little Room Jar any Ad- dition, as her own Opinion is, That Time and Patience may unite Duty and Inclination, We would advise her Parents to consider that they were once young themselves, and enquire into the Circum- stances of the Gentleman ; and, if they find them as good as JULIA represents, assist in the Happiness of their Child, and give their Consent. As for the de- form'd Sister, our Advice is, that she would be good- natur'd and affable, and then she may probably find some Gentleman for a Partner, who may make her Life very happy.] x 1945 Prizes 310170 First drawn 500 Last drawn 1000 48000 Blanks at 61. each 288330 I.

All Sorts of Goods and Merchandize ap- praised and bought ; or fold by Commission, if required. A Quantity of Bass Matts for Packing. tions; and two Boats having on hoard Four Thousand Sacks of Oats, which he cast into the Maes. Near Geldern he met One Hundred Carts with Forage, which he caused to he unloaded and burnt. From Aersen he took the Rout of Ger- nep, and burnt the Magazine there, consisting of One Hundred Thousand Rations of Hay and Straw; and some Thousand Rations of Oats. In this Tour, he made Sixteen Prisoners, whom he took along with him, besides a Serjant and Eigh- teen Austrian and Forty French Boatmen, whom, not being able to take with him, he left to the Magistrates of Stralen and Aersen, till his Re- turn. He afterwards burnt Four double Boats with Forage, and crossed the Rhine at Loburg. At Buderick there was a Regiment of French Cavalry with glandered Horles: They detached 150 Horsemen after him. Two hundred Foot were sent after him, in three Detachments, from Wesel; but he happily escaped them. At Bock- holt, a strong Party waited for him in his Re- turn ; but he made his Retreat, and escaped from them too.—- He performed all this in 93 Hours Time. By Letters from Westphalia we understand, that Prince Ferdinand's Head- Quarters were, on the 26th at Soest, where his Highness had assembled is whole Army. The Prince of Soubise, who had marched by Bockum, and Dortmund, to Un- na, was at the last of those Places on the 26th, when the two Armies were within a Day's March each other. Marshal Broglio too was in Motion. Every Thing continued in the same State in Sax- ony on the 23d Inft. and in Silsia on the 18th. of DR.

SOME Pretensions of theFrenchKing's Houshold Troops, as well as the violent Rains, have so much retarded theMarch of Prince Soubise's Army that it was the 23d before the Head Quarters arrived at Unna. The Prince of Conde was, then at Ulsen, with the Van- Guard ; M. de Voyer at Kefsburen. thé 24th. The Prince of Conde marched to Fremerhen ; M. de Voyer to Ofchbusen ; and Conflans was order, ed to Arens- berg, to sustain M. Dauset, who was to take Pos- session of Essen, which secures the Head of the Defile of Stadberg. The 25th the Army continued in the same Po sition, but Was to march early the 26th, leaving Werle on their Left. Holland. HAGUE, June 30. We have received the following Particulars of Major Scheiter's late successful Expedition. He crossed the Rhine at Bistick, with 36 Horses, and burnt the French Magazines at Xarten, which consisted of about Thirty- five Thousand Rations of Hay and Straw, and Fourteen Hundred Sacks of Oats. From thence he went to Sonsbeck and passed by Gueldren and Stralen, in his Way to Kakirchen and Rure- monde ; but learning that Ruremonde was pos- sessed by Austrian Troops, he went to Aersen, where he burnt a very great Magazine of Hay and Straw, which at a moderate Comp utation, consisted at least, of a Million and a Half of Ra- London, July 4.

His Majesty's Ship the Fowey, commanded by Capt. Tonyn, on the 23d past, being off the Lizard, fell in with a French Privateer, which she came up with, and took the next Morning, and has brought her to Spithead. She proved to be the Russia of Bayonne, of Six Carriage and Sixteen Swivel Guns, with 46 Men ; and Sailed last from St. Maloes. [ Thus far the GAZETTE.] ' Tis reported, that Lord Howe is to proceed on the Second Expedition from Portsmouth very soon, and that the Fleet is to be commanded by the Admirals Hawke and Pococke. An Officer on board the English Fleet, at An- chor near the Isle of Aix, in Basque Road, dated June 16, writes, That they go 0n Shore every Day, and can discover the French Ships in the River at Rochefort fitting out with all Speed : That they could plainly discern nine Ships and four Ketches, in the Road of Rochefort, and three Ships, with several small Craft, prepared for Fire- Ships, in the Road of St. Martin's: That the French were collecting all the Seamen they possibly could, from all the different Ports, in or- der to man this Fleet ; and it was a most terrible Mortification to them, to observe our Situation which enabled us to watch all their Motions. This Officer adds, that on the 13th he went on Shore at Rochelle with a Flag of Truce, to land a French Officer taken at Belleisle, when he was informed, that the French intended to come out and engage us on the 18th, when they should be favoured by the Spring Tides, if we were not re- inforced before that Day: That our Fleet then consisted of only Six Ships of the Line, two Fire- Ships, and a Bomb ; but that the Prince of Orange and Dragon joined them the Night before the above Date. We hear that an Enquiry will shortly be made into his Majesty's Dock- Yards, and the several public Offices ; in order to prevent all fraudulent Practices. It is now said that the Beer Act will be altered or amended by Parliament the Beginning of next Sessions. By particular Letters from Hanover, we have Advice, that Prince Ferdinand's Troops, to the Number of 8o; ooo Men, were in Motion near Neuhaufs, expecting hourly to be joined by the Division under the Command of the Hereditary- Prince of Brunswick, in order to attack the French Troops under Marshal Broglio, should they ad- vance any further towards his Army : However, as it was expected the Troops under the Prince de Soubise had a Design to join Marshal Broglio, it was supposed that Prince Ferdinand would for the present remain on the Defensive, ' till he was further reinforced with Forces from England. When the Pod left Holland, the Reports there were, that M. Broglio's Army had begun its March in threee Columns ; that the Saxons under Pr. Xavier had taken the Rout of Wurtzbourg, in order to advance to Gottinguen ; Other Troops are marching towards Cassel. St. Victor's Volun- teers are proceeding, with some Pieces of Cannon towards Munden. The Russians are arrived at Landsberg, and 26,000 of them have joined Ba- thiani's Corps, in order to unite with Laudohn.— But these Particulars want Confirmation. By some Letters from the Hague, we have an Account, that Count d'Affry, the French Minis- ter, is using his utmost Endeavours, underhand with the States, to occasion a Misunderstanding between them and Great Britain. Arriv'd the Mails from Holland and Flanders. Germany. HANOVER, June 26. According to our last Advices from Prince Ferdinand's Army, his Se- rene Highness has unexpectedly, put his Army, in Motion. We imagine that he is going to meet the Prince de Soubise, in order to fight him, not- withstanding his Superiority in Number of Troops and Cannon. HAMBURGH, June 26. They write from Ha- nover, that they have received Advice there from London, that his Britannic Majesty is determined to pay all his Grand- father's Debts in that Elec- torate, which, together with the Arrears, may amount to 500,000 Rixdollars, one Third of which is going to be paid directly. The Inhabitants of Gottingen have been taxed at 12,000 Crowns, to make good the Loss the Garrison sustained lately by Luckner's carrying off four Score Oxen, from under the Walls of thai Town. They write from Laticzo, in Upper Podolia, June I, that the Turks were assembling on their Frontiers, but they knew not on what Design. It was thought they would soon march. Letters from Paderborn say, that it was appre- hended that a considerable Corps of Marshal Broglio's Army would march thro' the Country of Eichtfeld, into the Principality of Halberstadt. By Letters from Jamaica, by the Enterprize Man of War, we are informed, that the inde- pendent Companies arrived there in perfect Health the Beginning of lad March, but that there was little Occasion for them, as the Rebellion amongst the Negroes was quite suppressed. Advices from Quebec, mention the perfect Health of our Troops, in Canada; and that Four Vessels arrived there from Boston the 4th of May, which were the first they had seen for six Months; but that they had Expresses across the Lakes, du- ring the whole Winter. M. Dugue- Lambert, who arrived some Months ago at Martinico, with a Reinforcement of Troops and Stores, writes to the French Court, that the Colony is in a very good Condition, and that the Enemy would absolutely lose their Labour and Expence, if they should come to insult it. That Island had above fifty Privateers at Sea, and scarce a Day passes without their bringing in one or more Prizes. It is computed that the Value of the Cap- tures they have made since the Commencement of the War, amounted to more than an hundred Millions of Livres By an Account from Limerick, in Ireland, dated June 23, we are informed, that the Week before, a Cat kittened in the Lower Barracks, one of whose Kittens had a Tail better than a Yard long, and but one Eye, which was in the Middle of its Forehead, This Day the Blenheim Man of War, a second Rate, was launched at Woolwich. She is an ex- ceeding fine Ship, and is to carry 94 Brass Guns; her lower Tier 42 Pounders. o! SONG. From the Imperial, Magazine. I.

IF the Wind permits, ( fays a Letter from Portsmouth of the 4th Instant) the Expedition Fleet will fail in a Week. It is supposed here that they are going against some other of the French Islands, particularly Rhee and Oleron ; for as to the Isle of Aix, it is as good as subdued already, our Squadron being there. They write from Portsmouth, that greater Ex- pedition was never used in fitting out a Fleet of Ships, than has been in fitting out the present, which are now all ready to fail, having taken a great Quantity of Provisions, Stores, & c. on board, and that they only wait for further Orders. We hear all the Transports in the River are ordered round to Portsmouth with the utmost Expedition. A general Council is summoned to meet at St. James's, on Wednesday next, on Affairs of great Importance, at which several of the Members who are in the Country, are summoned to attend. It is said the Time then expires when our Court expects a categorical Answer to some Points that have been offered to the French Court. This Day at Noon a Messenger arrived from Mr. Stanley at Paris. Great Alterations, we are told, are made and making at St. James's with respect to the places and Perquisites of many Persons belonging to his Majesty's Houshold. All the grand Apartments at St. James's are going to be repaired and beautified. Guildhall is to be repaired and beautified at the Expence of 700l. before Lord Mayor's Day ; where, it is said, his Majesty, and others of the Royal Family, will dine. On Friday last the University of Oxford, in full Convocation, conferred the Honorary Degree of Doctor in Civil Law on Sir John Gibbons, Knight of the Bath, and Member of Parliament for Wallingford. Sir Joseph Yorke is expected daily from the Hague for his final Instructions, before his Ex- cellency proceeds to the Congress of Augsburg. By a Letter from Augsburg, of the 17th ult. we learn; that besides the Ambassadors of' the Belligerent Powers, they are expected from Rome, Spain, Denmark, Bavaria, the Elector Palarine, and Hanover ; and that Houses were actually hired for those of France, Petersburgh, Berlin, Dres- den, Stockholm, Munich, and Manheim. The Ambassador from Rome comes about the pro- jected Secularization of some vacant Bishop ricks Some of the Transports are returned from Belle isle, the Officers of which give very pleasing Ac counts of that Island in Regard to its Productions and Fisheries. And the Repair of the Fortifica- tions were begun, and every Thing went on very agreeably. If any Credit can be given to several Letters from the Hague, the States are determined to op- pose the Sale of any Places in the Low- Countries, as contrary to express Treaties. Letters by the last Flanders Mail, fay, that the Vanguard of the Prince de Soubise's Army had received a severe Check from the Allies, and that this News was brought by Express to Dusseldorp. We learn from Warsaw, by Letters of the 15th of June, that the Head- Quarters of the Ruffians remain still at Posnania, and that the Van- Guard of General Goltze's Army was within five Miles of that Place In Consequence of the Influence of Austrian Counsels in the Cabinet of Versailles, express Or- ders have been sent to Marshal Broglio to detach a great Corps of Troops from his Army, subject to the Orders of the Empress- Queen They write from Genoa, that there is a Party in the Senate, who in Cafe the Inhabitants of Corsica reject the Terms offered by the Plenipo- tentiaries, incline to treat with a certain Prince for the Sale of their Interest in that Island. By the violent Tempest which happened at Munich on the 15th ult. the Electoral Palace, the Church and Convent of the Augustines, and the College of Jesuits, were greatly damaged; and the Country all round, which before promised the most plentiful Harvest, now represents nothing but a perfect Desart. They write from Genoa of June 6th, that as they had heard nothing of late of their Com- missaries to the Island of Corsica, it Was thought they were upon their Return Home, without being able to bring about a Compromise with the Rebels of Corsica. The Hessian Guards arrived the 24th ult. at Lunenburg, where the reigning Landgrave of Hesse was expected before the Expiration of the, last Month. Letters from Dantzick, dated June 12, advise That the Russians, in order to execute the Plan of Operations sent them from Petersburgh, pro- pose to make themselves Masters of Colin, and Colberg, both of which Places are covered present by Prussian Armies, one under the Prince of Wirtemberg, and the other commanded by Gen. Werner. The Attempt made by General Tottleben upon Belgard was rash and premature, as he had not a greater Force than 6000 Men un- der his Command ; who were beat off by a single Battalion of Prussian Grenadiers ! This Day there was a Court of Common- Council upon particular Business ; they sat sooner than usual. Early on Saturday Morning several Galleys were out with Press- Gangs, and many Men were pressed on the Water below Bridge. William Boys, Esq. Commander in Chief of his Majesty's Ships and Vessels, in the Rivers Thames and Medway, succceds the late Capt. Lloyd, as Deputy- Governor of Greenwich.- Hospital.

Last Week eight Men were capitally convicted at Winchester Assizes for divers Robberies. They are Part of a Gang of upwards of 40, who have for some Time past infested the Roads near Ports- mouth, and committed many Robberies. At this Assize, Francis Arsino, a Venetian, aged 26, was tried and convicted for ripping up the Body of Peter Wharley, belonging to the Guernsey Man of War at Gosport. On Thurs- day Night he endeavoured to ( strangle himself in the Gaol, but was prevented; and on Saturday Morning he was carried from Winchester to Gosport, and executed at Blockhouse Fort, and his Body was afterwards hung in Chains, pur- suant to his Sentence. George King was a few Days since committed to Winchester Gaol, by Matthew Imber, Esq. on Suspicion of murdering his Wife at Start, near the Devizes.

WHEN first CLARINDA'S Charms I view'd, Her graceful Mein, and sprightly Air, Surpriz'd I gaz'd, and pensive stood, And with Delight survey'd the Fair. Her Cheeks the Roses Blush excell'd, Her Eyes than Diamonds brighter far; When I her lovely Form beheld, Her Beauty did my . Heart ensnare. Now, conscious of her pow'rful Sway, Proud of the Conquest she hath gain'd ; My Love she doth with Scorn repay, My Sighs and Vows are all disgain'd. Beware ye Swains e're ' tis too late, Her captivating Beauty shun; Left you shou'd share my hapless Fate, Left you like me shou'd be undone. STREPHON. Extempore Complaint on an empty Purse. TO thee, my Purse, thus troubled, I complain, To thee, that art the Cause of all my Pain: Thy yellow Gold is gone, and Silver bright: Alas! I'm heavy grown, ' cause thou art light. To thee, my Purse, for Mercy thus I cry, Be heavy once again, or else I die. L. REBUS. ONe- fifth of the Man to his Sov'reign a Foe; What I write for myself you may very well know; Of Nothing, the first and the last add to these, And you'll quickly find out, with a great. Deal of Ease, These added together will plainly declare, What one Day or other I hope - I shall wear. AN N A. Answer to the RIDDLE in your last. It seemeth so strange, so contrary to Nature, That I'm certain ' tis Nothing, unless it is WATER.
