SINCE the Days that are past are gone for ever, and those that are to come, may not come to thee; it behoveth thee, O Man, to employ the present Time, without regreting the Loss of that Which is past, or too much depending on that which is to come. This Instant is thine, the next is in the Womb of Futurity, and thou knowest not what it may bring forth. Whatsoever thou resolvest to do, do it quickly ; defer not ' till the Evening what the Morning may accomplish. Idleness is the Parent of Want and of Pain ; but the Labour of Virtue briageth forth Pleasure. The Hand of Diligence defeateth Want ; Pros- perity and Success are the industrious Man's At- tendants. Who is he that hath acquired Wealth, that hath risen to Power, that hath cloathed him- self with Honour, that is spoken of in the City with Praise, and that standeth before the King in his Counsel ? Even he that hath shut out Idleness from his House ; and hath said unto Sloth, Thou art mine Enemy. He rises up early, and lyeth down late ; he ex- wisheth his Mind with Contemplation, and his Body with Action, and preserveth the Health of both. The slothful Man is a Burthen to himself, his Hours hang heavy on his Head: He loitereth about, and knoweth not what he would do. His Days past away like the Shadow of a Cloud, and he leaveth behind him no Mark for Remem- brance. His Body is Diseased for want of Exercise ; he wisheth for Action, but hath not Power to move ; his Mind is in Darkness, his Thoughts are con fus'd ; he longeth for Knowledge, but hath no Application. He would eat of the Almond, but hateth the Trouble of breaking its Shell. His House is in Disorder, his Servants are waste- ful and riotous, and runneth on towards Ruin : he seeth it with his Eyes, he heareth it with his Ears, he shaketh his Head, and wisheth, but hath no Resolution : ' Till Ruin cometh upon him like a Whirlwind, and Shame and Repentance descend with him to the Grave. Friday's and Saturday's POSTS. [*** No FOREIGN MAIL arriv'd.] London, September 17. UESDAY there was a very grand Council at St. James's, which sat ' till after Five o'Clock, . on Affairs, it is said, of great Importance. There were present the Earl of Granville, President, the Lord- Chancellor, the Duke of De- vonshire, the Hon. Mr. Pitt, the Earl of Bute, and several Noblemen and Gentlemen of the first Distinction. On the breaking up of which, three Messengers were sent Abroad. Yesterday there was a very extraordinary Levee at St. James's ; at which were the greatest Num- ber of Foreigners ever seen, with grand Equipages. It's said the hew Parliament will meet and sit for the Dispatch of Business 011 the Twenty second of October. Yesterday Orders were given for a Sloop to sail immediately to bring Mr. Stanley from the Court of France ; and this Morning Mr. Bussy took his Leave of Mr. Pitt, and is forthwith to return Home.— Notwithstanding all Reports to the Con- trary, we can assure the Public, that his Majesty and the Privy- Council have been along unani- mous as to the Terms upon which Peace ought to be made with France ; and that when the Con- ferences in Regard to that important Transaction are made public, as they probably will be, they will appear to have been conduced on our Part with the greatest Candor, Equity, and Magnani- mity, and on the Part of France with their usual Artifice, Insincerity, and Chicane. It is now said, that if the French do not agree to the Terms proposed by our Court, before the Beginning of next Month, the Grand Armament at Por smouth, which has lately been greatly rein- forced, will certainly sail the Beginning of next Month, some think for the West- Indies, to com- plete cur Conquest in that Quarter of the Globe. The People in Holland, from the Letters re- ceived from Silesia on the nth, hourly expect to hear of a Battle in Silesia. All Communication in Silesia is become so pre- carious, and the Accounts from thence are so va- rious, that nothing can be asserted with any real Certainty. This only seems to be clear, that both are in no little Perplexity, and that if the King of Prussia can either gain or avoid a Battle, the Con gress will be very speedily, opened at Augsbourg. A Letter from the Hague, dated Sept. 8, says, If the different Accounts we have received be well grounded, there are Matters of the last Importance in Agitation. Some Letters insinu- ate, that the Court of Petersburgh is much piqued that England will make no Abatement in her De- mands on France, as she had charged her Ambas- sador to act as Mediator in that Affair ; which once settled, the Differences between the other Powers at War would be easily adjusted." A Letter from Paris, Sept. 4, says, " The Ne- gotiations for a Peace meet with so many Obstruc- tions, that it is questioned whether they will be brought to a happy Issue this Year. Orders have been sent to the two Marshals in Germany to push their. Operations with all possible Vigour. We expect impatiently the News of their Success. Mean While, it is to be seared that we shall have Occasion for our Troops at Home. The Clergy begin to stir, and to talk big, especially those of Languedoc and Provence, who are instigated by the Jesuits. The Engines which these Fathers set to Work, and their Intrigues, seem to rouse the Attention of the Court, which has taken scarce any Cognizance of our Theological Dis- putes since the War with England began." Letters from Constantinople of the 1st of Aug. last make no Mention of an Insurrection, as was inserted in the foreign News papers same Time since. We are on the Eve ( say Letters from Ham- burgh, dated the 4th) of receiving News of the last Importance. From the Neighbourhood of Glogau they write, that the King of Prussia was surrounded in such a Manner, that he could re- ceive Subsistence by one Road only, and that not without much Difficulty ; so that he would be ab- solutely obliged, notwithstanding his Resolution to remain on the defensive, to come to an Action. The Friends of Prussia at Hamburgh flatter them- selves that he will get rid of the Ruffians, as usual, about the End of this Month; and will then have only Laudohn to Deal with ; but ( add these Letters from Hamburgh) we are well assured, that the Empress- Queen having represented to the Czarina, that it was highly essential to the Success of their Designs, that her Troops should keep the Field as long as the Austrians, her Imperial Ma- jesty of Russia returned for Answer, that she would send Orders to her Generals to continue their Operations ' till General Laudohn should be orde- red into Winter Quarters ; and that in order to take the Fieldlearly next Campaign, if the King of Prussia could not be brought to Reason this Year, she would leave it to her Majesty to regu- late their Winter Quarters as she should think most convenient. There are Letters in Town which mention, that French Agents are busy all over Spain in buying up large Vessels, which are to be conducted into the French Ports, by the former Proprietors, and afterwards converted into Privateers to cruize on the English, for the Benefit of the Merchant Ad- venturers of that Kingdom. By a Letter from Martinico there is Advice, that 12 Sail of Merchant Ships bad lately been taken, and sent in there, by a Privateer belong- ing to that Place ; and that seven Sail had been taken, and sent in by a Frigate arrived there from Old France. The Splendor of the Court of Mecklenburg- Strelitz was infinitely beyond the Conception of those who attended this important Errand. Lord Harcourt was received there with a Grandeur easier to be conceived than express'd. His Lord- ship never stirr'd without a Body - Guard to attend, him, which, we are informed, consisted of remar- kable till Men, Who made a very formidable and handsome Appearance. Her Majesty's Bro- ther. in the Service of Prince Ferdinand, accom- panied her to Cuxhaven, at the Mouth of the Elbe, but no farther, as has been so frequently reported. < ill> of the Hon. the Earl of Honcourt, that were at the Court of Mecklenburgh, have had Presents made them by the Duke of Meck- lenburgh and her Majesty's Sister, of a Gold Watch, a Gold Snuff- Box, and a curious Rine. Yesterday in the Afternoon upwards of 4500 Ship Letters, which came by the Leeward Island Fleet, were brought to the Post- Office ; but could not be delivered ' till this Day. Yesterday near 500 Debtors were discharged before the Lord- Mayor, at the Hustings at Guild- hall, from the Prisons of Ludgate and the two Compters. Monday an extraordinary Christening was cele- brated at Mr. John Hibbert's, a Collar maker, at Hessam, near Walton, in Surry, where two hundred People was assembled ; there was a whole Lamb roasted with a Pudding in the Belly, the Horns gilt ; two Buttocks of Beef, two Hams, two Gammons of Bacon, two Dozen of Fowls, six Plumb Puddings, a Butt of Beer, besides great Quantities of Punch, Wine, & c. This was a Present of his Wife's Father, and his Relations, who had promised to provide it at the Christening of the first Child after their Marriage. On a WATCH. ALL Men like Watches various Periods share. From thirty Hours unto threescore Year : And which more true or good, ' tis hard to say, An Horoscope of Gold, or one of Clay. False and imperfect both alike we find ; In that the Spring's in Fault, in this the Mind : In their mechanic Powers both agree ; Reason's a Ballance, Wisdom a Fusee : But if in either the me in Springs should fail Or over- act, these Powers nought avail. Thus if the Will be strong, the Fabric weak, The Constitution then of Course mutt break : Or if the Passions move or high or low, The Animal Machine's too fast or flow. But when its active Springs are duly coil'd, And not an Appetite or Sense is spoil'd ; When all Life's Movements mutually agree, And Soul with Body acts in Harmony ; This human Trinket then may go as true As any such- like kindred Trinkets do. And when at length each hath run out their Chain, Quite silent and inactive they remain, And with this Difference revive again : A human Hand shall those awhile restore, These one Almighty, and for evermore. Sunday's and Monday's POSTS. From the LONDON GAZETTE. Holland. HAGUE, Sept. < ill> HE Head- Quarters of the Ashed Army were on the 7th Inst. at Buhne, and the Position of the Enemy was as follows : Prince Xavier's Reserve en- camped between Greene and Eim- beck : The main Body of M. Broglio's Army between Sulbeck and Her ; a large Detachment before its Right, and another before its Left, on the Side of Moringen : Another Corps near Got- tingen, and smaller ones between that Place and Munden, to keep open the Communication. ----- Lieut. Gen. Stainville, with 36 Battalions at Graberstein, fronting the Dymel. M. Broglio had been for several Days in Person at Cassel. In consequence of the Attack made by the Ene- my on the 31st past, upon Gen. Luckner's Corps, and that of Gen. Freytagg, the Chasseurs of the Allied Army had been obliged to abandon some of the Denies of the Hartz, but they have since reoccupied them, Sept. 15. since Prince Ferdinand or Brunt- wick's Return from Hesse into Westphalia, no- thing of Consequence has happened between the two Armies. His Serene Highness occupied still, on the 11th Instant, his Camp at Buhne, and his Army extended down the Weser towards Hame- len. Several detached Corps of the French Army had before past through the Hartz Mountains, and had got Possession, by their great Superiority, of several considerable Passes. Some Corps of the Allies, under General Luckner, General Frey- tag, and Colonel Stockhausen, had been forced, after a brave Resistance, to retire farther buck ; and Prince Ferdinand, in order to secure the Town of Hanover, had directed Lieutenant Wat- genau, with the Body of Troops under his Orders, to cross the Weser at Grohnde, and to draw near to it ; but upon his Serene Highness's March into the Neighbourhood of Cassel, the French General, being apprehensive for his Communication with that Place, was obliged to go in Person, with a great Force, to secure it ; and our latest Accounts from Hanover assure us, that the Enemy had eva- cuated the Hartz, and had retired to Sesen. The Prince of Soubize keeps still behind the Lippe ; and for Fear of risking his Communication with Wesel, whilst the Hereditary Prince is so near him, contents himself with making Excursions, with Detachments of Light Troops, to the upper Part of that River. We have no direct News from his Serene Highness since the 8th instant, when his Head- Quarters were at Bockum, not far from Hamm. The Armies in Silesia had done nothing to the 1st of this Month ; and the combined Forces of Austria and Russia had found the King of Prussia's Position too difficult to attempt to drive him out. The Parliament of Paris has consented to regis- ter the French King's Edict, which suspends all farther Proceedings against the Jesuits for a Year ; but they have limited the Suspcnsion to the 1st of April of the next Year, and directed the first Pre- sident, to represent, in the strongest Terms, to the King their Master, the ill Consequences of pro- tecting that Society. r Portugal. LISBON, Sept. 2. His Serene Highness the young Prince of Beira was christened on Friday the 28th past, by the Names of Joseph Francis- Xavier dePaula- Domingos- Antonio- Augustiaho- Anostachio ; the King and Queen of Portugal being Sponsors. 0 ' *** ADVERTISEMENTS for this Paper are taken in at the Printing- Office in Stall- Street, at 3s. 6d. each Time, if short ; longer Ones in Proportion. —— The BATH CHRONICLE and WEEKLY GAZETTE is circulated in London, Bristol, Plymouth, Exeter, Tiverton, Taunton, Bridgewater, Wells, Shepton- Mallet, Bruton, Frome, Gloucester, Cirencester, Tetbury, Malmsbury, Wotton- under- edge, Tewkesbury, Cheltenham, Hereford, Worcester, Kidderminster, Bewdley, Bridgnorth, Shrewsbury, Birmingham, Coventry, Warwick, Oxford, Abingdon, Hungerford, Newbury, Reading, Salisbury, Heitsbury, Warminster, Westbury, Lavington, Bradford, Trowbridge, Melksham, Devizes, Corsham, Chippenham, Calne, Marlborough, Dorchester, Blandford, Shaftsburv Pool, Weymouth, Sherborne, & c. & c. at the Post- Offices of most of which Places, Advertisements for this Paper, and Orders for all Manner of Printing, are taken IN ; at likewise by the Newsmen.---------- No Letters received, unless POST- PAID.——- At the Printing- office aforesaid may be had, all Sorts of PATENT MEDICINES. & c. 198 The Bath Chronicle and Weekly Gazette. [ VOL. London. WHITEHALL, Sept. 19. Letters from Sir Jeffery Amherst, dated Albany, August 13, give an Account, that the Operations against the Che- fokees, under the Command of Lieutenant Col. Grant, of the 4.0th Regiment of Foot, had been very lucky, and that every Thing had succeeded without a single Rub, though the Country would have been impenetrable had it been well defen- ded. Fifteen Towns, and all the Plantations in the Country, have been burnt ; above Fourteen Hundred Acres of Corn, Beans, Pease, & c. de- stroyed ; about 5000 People, including Men, Women, and Children, drove into the Woods and Mountains, where, having nothing to subsist upon, they must either starve, or sue for Peace. Colonel Grant says, that the Provincials have behaved well, as he always expected they would do, and that the Rangers have been very alert : They never made a Difficulty, and they seem now to dispise the Indians, as much as they were suspected to fear them before. That Major Mo- nypenny has been extremely diligent and atten- tive, and of great Use upon all Occasions : That the Officers, commanding the several Corps, have exerted themselves, and every body has behaved with a proper Spirit. Our Indians have been of great Use. Capt. Kennedy has had a great Deal of Trouble, and has Merit for taking so much Care of them, and for keeping them in so good Order. The Upper Chickesaws are quite a diffe- rent Species of People from any other Indians : They behaved remarkably well. If the Province does not reward them, it must be done at the Ex- pence of the Crown. Though they have been at War above a Twelve Month, they readily agreed to stay with Col. Grant as long as he pleased.— They said, they would ask nothing ' till the Ser- vice was over ; but the Preliminary Article was that when they went Home, they were to trust to the Colonel for their Presents. The Cherokees must certainly starve, or come info Terms ; and even in that Case, Col. Grant thinks ' tis hardly in the Power of the Province to save them. He proposed, in a few Days, to send to the Great Warrior, and the Little Car- penter, to come and treat of Peace, if they chuse to save their Nation from Destruction. ' Till he receives their Answer, he shall endeavour to save the small Remains of the Lower Towns. In the mean Time, Col. Grant intends to put Fort Prince George into Repair, and to wait there, or at Ninety- six, ' till he receives Orders from Sir Jeffery Amherst. WHITEHALL, Sept. 19. The King has been pleased to order a Conge d'Elire to the Dean and Chapter of the Cathedral and Metropolitical Church of York, to elect an Archbishop thereof, and re- commending to the said Dean and Chapter the Right Rev. Father in God Dr. Robert Drum- mond, now Bishop of Salisbury, to be elected into the said Archbishopric of York. The King has been pleased to order a Conge d'Elire to the Dean and Chapter of the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, London, to elect a Bishop thereof, and recommending to the said Dean and Chapter the Right Reverend Father in God Dr. Thomas Hayter, now Bishop of Norwich, to be elected into the said Bishopric of London. [ Thus far the GAZETTE.] Country- Intelligence. COVENTRY, Sept. 14. On Saturday Evening one Davis, a Weaver, walking with his Wife along Much- park- street, a Boy called her a blinking B— h, with more Expressions of the same Kind : Davis ran after the Boy, checked him for his Insolence, and gave him a gentle Blow for two ; at which one Denston, a Porter, without any other Provocation, came up to Davis, swore he should never strike any Body again, and knock- ed him down, kicked him on the Temples, stamped upon him, and otherwise so ill treated the poor Man, as to occasion his Death immediately. Being told that he had killed him, he answered, " No, d— n him, he's not dead, but if he was, " there's no Harm to kill an Irishman :" But being afterwards fully satisfied that Davis was actually dead, he absconded, and has not since been heard of, though diligent Search has been making after him. Notice is hereby given, That BUCK LAND FAIR, Usually held on the 29th of September, O. S. WILL always be holden on the 1oth of October, being the same Day, N. S. but as the said 10th of October happens this Year on a Saturday, for that Reason it is put off to the Monday following ; which the Pub- lie are desired to observe, this being the last Time any Notice will be given.

WHOEVER are inclin'd to become Adventurers in the PRESENT STATE- LOTTERY, may be supply'd with TICKETS I 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 also 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 or 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 same Price as they are sold by the principal Brokers of Credit and Security, in London. The Price of Chances, Shares, and Tickets, this Day, are as follow ; Sold by Mr. Leake, Bookseller in Bath ; Mr. Baldwin, and Mr. Jackson, in London ; and Mr. Brown, in Bristol : The Following MEDICINES, Prepared by the Directions of Dr. HILL. I. VALERIAN, Genuine Tincture of the TRUE ROOT.------ It is excellent beyond Parallel in all Nervous Disorders, Lowness of Spirits, Head- achs, Tremblings, vain Fears, and Wanderings of the Mind ; in Convulions, Hysteric Fits, Hypochon- driacal Complaints, and the Epilepsy. It prevents Sickness at the Stomach ; and takes off entirely that Sense of Fulness and Swelling of the Flesh in damp, Weather, which so greatly affect Persons of lax Fibres. It gives a serene Cheerfulness of Disposition in the Place of those careless Horrors which so dreadfully op- press People who have weak Nerves.— Providence seems to have given the Plant in a peculiar Manner to England, where those Disorders are most common. A Medicine not only for the Body, but the Mind.— Sold in Pint Bottles at 10s. 6d. the Smaller 5s. and 2s. 6d. each. 2. For the Certain CURE of the Scurvy, Essence of WATER- DOCK. There is no Question but this Plant will cure the most inveterate Scurvy : The Ancients all affirm it, and the Cures daily now performed by the Essence prove their Truth. It not only clears the Skin of Eruptions, but mends the whole Constitution. Scorbutic Persons are subject to have bad Stomachs, and to be miserably low- spirited at Times ; and many have these Com- plaints, not knowing the Scurvy is the Cause : This Medicine takes off the Faintness, creates an Appetite and good Digestion immediately, when that Distemper in their Blood is the Cause ; and gradually cleans the Skin, and prevents future Eruptions. The Afflicted may depend on these Effects. Price 3s. the Bottle, with Directions. Arri'v'd a Mail from HOLLAND. Germany. PRAGUE, Sept. 2. Though the King of Prussia is most advantageously posted under the Cannon of Schweidnitz, General Laudohn is making the necessary Dispositions in Conjunction with Marshal Butterlin, whose Troops form the second Line of the Army, to make a general At- tack on him. UCKERAINE MARCHE, Sept. 4. The Swedish Army hath repassed the Peene ; and Col. Belling, who commands the Prussian Troops, having re- ceived a Reinforcement of about 2500 Men, is inarched to Anclam, after levying Contributions of Bread, Beer, & c. at Malchin, a Town of Mecklenburgh.—- General Stutterheim, who was detached from Prince Henry's Army in Saxony to aft against the Swedes, and who has halted at Passe walk, will, it is said, march to Colberg, to join the Prince of Wurtemberg. STETTIN, Sept. 6. The Russians have made two Attempts within these few Days to land near Colberg, in order to make themselves Matters of some small Forts and Redoubts which serve to cover that Place : But were each Time repulsed with Loss. The Troops under Gen. Romanzoss likewise advanced to attack the Prince of Wur- temberg's Camp ; but were received with such a smart Fire of Artillery and Small Arms, that they thought proper to retire. Holland. HAGUE, Sept. 13. Letters received this Day from Silesia advise, that the King of Prussia con- tinued in his former Position near Schweidnitz, and the Russians and Austrians also in their for- mer Encampments in the Neighbourhood of Stri- gau : But that as his Prussian Majesty had drawn a very large Train of Artillery out of Schweid- nitz, it was thought that he intended to give the Enemy Battle. France. PARIS, Sept. 7. Within these two Months a Gang of Smugglers have appeared in Dauphiny, whose Number has gradually increased to 300, well armed with double- barrelled Muskets, and headed by a Fellow of equal Intrepidity and Pru- dence with the famous Mandrin, whose Steps they exactly follow, not one Exciseman daring to shew his Head. Proper Methods will soon be taken to suppress them. l. s. d. l.

For the Gout and Rheumatism, ELIXIR of BARDANA.— The Numbers who have found Relief from this Medi- cine prove that it has at leaf answered the Expecta- tion with which it was made public ; and fresh In- stances of its good Effects daily shew, that the Author is so happy as to have been of some Benefit to Man- kind. To prevent the Returns of the Gout has been found impossible ; but to relieve those who suffer, it is in our Power ; to reduce the Number, and shorten the Continuance of the Fits ; and to alleviate the Pains of them : So much will he effected by this Medicine. And this is as much as a considerate Per on would de- sire : In the Rheumatism, it is a certain and absolute Cure ; and the Disease never returns. The Dose is a Tea- spoonful in a Wine Glass of Water, Night and Morning. Its Operation is by insensible Perspiration, and slightly by Urine. Price 3s. the Bottle, with Directions. 4. Essential Tincture of Golden Rod, The most successful Medicine now used for the GRA- VEL and STONE.— Each Bottle, containing about 16 Doses ; and is an effectual, safe, and pleasant Re- medy in all Degrees of those Complaints.— Price 4s. the Bottle, with Directions. 5. Pectoral BALSAM of HONEY : A new- discovered Remedy for Coughs and Consump- tions, all Phthisicky Complaints, Asthmas, and tough Phlegm, Difficulty of Breathing, Hoarseness, and Stuffings- up of the Lungs. A Tea- spoonful con- tains the Virtue of two Ounces of Honey, impregnated with the finest vegetable Balsams, and never disagrees with any Constitution ; it converts a Glass of Water into the Nature and Quality of Asses Milk, with this balsamic Addition ; it takes off the Hectic which at- tends a Consumption, recruits the Strength, allays the Cough, and heals and preserves the Lungs. If it be in the Power of Medicine to stop the Ravage of that cruel Disease which cuts off such Numbers of our Youth, this Balsam will effect it. The Author can recommend it on long Experience, and if it might not appear vain or interested, could add great Proofs of its Virtue.------ Price 3s. the Bottle, with Directions. The above Medicines are sealed, and signed by the Author, with his own Hand- Writing, at the Bottom of each Bottle. London, September 19. The Courts at St. James's continue almost as great as ever, the Ladies especially still coming in great Numbers. There are 800 Gold Medals struck, 400 for the King, and 400 for the Queen ; one Half of which will be thrown in the Abbey, and the other in the Hall, on the Day of the Coronation. A great Number of Silver Ones are struck to be thrown among the Populace. We hear that Patents are preparing for creating two Dukes and two Barons. We hear that Sir William Courtenay, Knight of the Shire for the County of Devon, and Geo. Venables Vernon, Esq. Member of Parliament for Derby, will shortly be created Peers of Great- Britain. It is said the Space of Ground within Westmin- ster- Abbey, from the West Gate to the Place where the Organ was fixed, to have Scaffolding built to see the Coronation, was lett for 25ool. It is said that M. de Bussy leaves London on Wednesday. Several Men of War being now manned, have broke up their Rendezvous, and are ordered to sail to Portsmouth. By Letters from New- York we have Advice, that the Sum of 2o, oool. granted for the Service of the Troops in our American Colonies, was arrived there to be applied towards providing for the Provincials and other Troops that are to be employed in the Expedition going forward under the Direction of Gen. Amherst. By Letters from Guadalupe of the 4th ult. there is an Account, that Gen. Amherst being expected with 12 or 15,000 Men, to attack Mar- tinico, many Gentlemen were going Volunteers from the former Island, and that they flattered themselves with the greatest Hopes of Success. The last Advices from Dominica mention that the Design of the English is, to take Possession of all the neutral Islands, but first to attack the Grenades, which is of the greatest Strength, and when subdued, will render them a more easy Conquest. It is said that Governor Lyttelton, for the bet- ter putting a Stop to all contraband Trade in the West- Indies, by Dutch or English, will carry over with him some farther Powers, which will enable him effectually to extirpate those perm- cious Traders. His Majesty's Ship Repulse, stationed at the Leeward Islands, has taken a Ship and a Snow from Martinico, faid to be worth 30,000l. The Repulse had not been above six Weeks in those Seas. M. de Gue Lambert, late Commander of the Courageux, died of his Wounds the 25th of last Month, and was attended, at his Burial, by the English and French Officers. A Letter from New- York, August 17, says " There are fourteen Regiments to be embarked here on the Expedition, the Transports are ready, waiting for a Fleet of Ships of War from Eng- land, which have been expected here some Time : So that in all Probability Martinico will fall, as the Force is too strong to go against Louisiana." We hear that the Spaniards are making Pre- parations for carrying on a Cod- Fishery. The following is an exact Number of Men of War, taken from the French since the Commence- ment of the present War, to the first Instant.------- Four Ships of 84 Guns, fourteen of 74, two of 66, seventeen of 64, one of 58, two of 56, one of 54, six of 50, four of 44, two of 40, nineteen of 36, one of 34, thirteen of 32, three of 28, two of 26, seven of 24, three of 22, seven of 20, one of 18, seven of 16, four of 14, two of 12, one of 10, and eight of 8. Total Ships 131, Guns 5300.— And by a List of the French Navy, published in June, 1756, including five then building, their whole Number amounted only to 111. The Danish Generals have received Orders to put their Troops in Motion, on three successive Couriers arriving at Copenhagen from Peter- burgh, with ; Advice that the Negotiations for the Exchange of Holstein were entirely broke off. E N I G M A. THO' Strange, my Brother's Uncle now I am, And they my duteous Nephews are become ; Now I my Aunts with Justice Sisters call, And now my Uncles arc my Brothers ail. My Grandfather to Father change his Name, My Grandmother to Mother's done the same. She's now my Sister, who- was once my Mother ; He who begat me now's become my Brother. Was there e'er known such various Change as these Since Ovid wrote his Metamorphoses.

THIS Day the Ceremony of their Majesties Coronation was per- formed in the Abbey- Church at west- minster. Gaz. The following Anthems were sung at the Co- ronation of their Majesties King George III. and Queen Charlotte ; all composed on this Occasion by Dr. Boyce, Master of the King's Band ; ex- cept the 4th, which was composed by the late Mr. Handel. ANTHEM I. I WAS glad when they laid unto me, Let us go into the House of the Lord. Our Feet shall stand within thy Gates, O Jerusalem, For thither the Tribes go up, even the Tribes of the Lord, unto the Testimony of Israel, to give Thanks unto the Name of the Lord. For there are set Thrones of Judgment, even the Thrones of the House of David. O pray for the Peace of Jeru- salem ; they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy Walls, and Prosperity within thy Palates .—— Glory be to the Father, & c. ANTHEM II. THE King shall rejoice in thy Strength, O Lord : Exceeding glad shall he be of thy Salva- tion. Thou shalt prevent him with the Blessings of Goodness, and shalt set a Crown of pure Gold upon his Head. His Honour is great in thy Sal- vation, Glory and great Worship shalt thou lay upon him. Thou shalt give him everlasting Fe- licity, and make him glad with the Joy of thy Countenance.— Hallelujah, To thee Cherubin and Seraphin, continually do cry, Holy, holy, holy , Lord God of Sabaoth. Heaven and Earth are full of the Majesty of thy Glory. The glorious Company of the Apostles praise thee. The goodly Fellowship of the Prophets praise thee. The noble Army of Martyrs praise thee. The holy Church throughout all the World, doth acknowledge thee ; the Father of an infinite Majesty ; thine honourable, true, and only Son ; also the Holy Ghost : the Comforter. Thou art the King of Glory, O Christ. Thou art the everlasting Son of the Father. When thou tookest upon thee to deliver Man : thou didst not abhos the Virgin's Womb. When thou hadst overcome the Sharpness of Death, thou didst open the Kingdom of Heaven to all Believers. Thou sittest at the Right Hand of God, in the Glory of the Father. We believe that thou shalt come, to be our Judge. We therefore pray thee, help thy Servants, whom thou hast redeemed with thy precious Blood. Make them to be numbered with thy Saints, in Glory everlasting. O Lord lave thy People, and bless thine Heritage. Govern them, and lift them up for ever. Day by Day we magnify thee ; and we wor- ship thy Name, ever World without End. Vouchsafe, O Lord ; to keep us this Day with- out Sin. O Lord, have Mercy upon us ; have Mercy upon us. O Lord, let thy Mercy lighten upon us, as our Trust is in thee. O Lord, in thee have I trusted, let me never be confounded. ANTHEM VIII. THE Lord is a Sun and a Shield ; the Lord will give Grace and Glory. Now know I that the Lord saveth his Anointed ; he will hear him from his holy Heaven, and help him with the saving Strength of his right Hand. For the King trusteth in the Lord, through the Mercy of the most High he shall not tie moved ; his Hand shall find out all his Enemies. His Salvation is nigh them that sear him ; that Glory may dwell in our Land. Blessed be the Lord God the God of Israel, who only doth wond'rous Things. And blessed he his glorious Name for ever ; and let the whole Earth be filled with his Glory. Amen. Hallelujah. ANTHEM IX. My Heart is enditing of a good Matter : speak of the Things which I have made unto the King. At his Right Hand shall stand the Queen, all glorious within : Her Cloathing is of wrought Gold. She shall be brought unto the King in Raiment of Needle work ; the Virgins that follow her shall bear her Company. With Joy and Gladness shall they be brought ; and shall enter into the King's Palace. Hearken, O Daughter, and consider, incline thine Ear ; forget also thine own People, and thy Father's House. Instead of thy Fathers, thou shalt have Children ; whom, thou mayst make. Princes in all Lands. Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem ; praise thy God, O Sion. For Kings shall be thy nursing Fathers, and their Queens thy nursing Mothers. Amen Hallelujah. ANTHeM X.

Their Majesties, upon their Entrance into the Church, were received by the Prebendaries and Choir singing an Anthem; and having seated themselves, the Recognition and Oblations were made; and after the Litany read by the Bishops of Gloucester and Bristol, and the first Part of the Communion Service, the Bishop of Oxford preached the Sermon. The Sermon being ended, the Archbishop drew near unto the Kings Chair of State, and asked him if he was willing to take the Oath usually taken by his Predecessors, The King assenting thereto, the Archbishop then administred the following Questions, which the King answered severally. BISHOP. " Sir, will you grant and keep, and by your Oath confirm to the People of Eng- land, the Laws and Customs to them granted, by the Kings of England, your lawful and reli- gious Predecessors ; and namely, the Laws, Customs, and Franchises, granted to the Clergy, by the glorious King St Edward your Predecessor, according to the Laws of God, the true Profession of the Gospel established in this Kingdom, agreeable to the Prerogatives of the Kings thereof and the ancient Customs of this Realm ?" KING. " I grant and promise to keep them." BISHOP. " Will you keep Peace, and godly Agreement, according to your Power, both to God, the holy Church, the Clergy, and the People?" KING. " I will keep it." BISHOP. " Will you ( to your Power) cause Law, Justice, and Discretion in Mercy and Truth, to be executed, to your Judgment?" KING. " I will'." BISHOP. " Sir, will you grant to bold and keep the Laws and rightful Customs, which the Commonalty of this your Kingdom have? And will you defend and uphold them, to the Ho- nour of God, so much as in you lieth !" KING. " I grant and promise so to do." Then his Majesty subscribed the Declaration, and took the Coronation Oath, as follows, laying his Hand upon the Bible : " The Things which I have here promised, I shall perform and keep, so help me God, and the Contents of this Book." Then the King was anointed by the Arch- bishop, upon the Crown of the Head, the Breast, and Palms of his Hand. The Archbishop as he anointed him pronounced these Words: " Let these Hands be anointed with holy Oil, as Kings and Prophets have been anointed, and as Samuel did anoint David to be King; that thou mayest be blessed and established a King in this Kingdom, over the People whom the Lord thy God hath given thee, to rule and govern. Which he vouchsafe to grant, who with the Fa- ther and the Holy Ghost, three in Person, and one in Unity, reigns in Glory everlasting." This being finish'd, the Anointing was dried up with fine Linen. Then his Majesty was presented with the Spurs, and girl with the Sword, which was offered and afterwards redeemed by the Ear! of Huntingdon. The Archbishop said,—" Receive this kingly Swore, which is hallowed for the Defence of the holy Church, and delivered unto thee, by the Hands of the Bishops, though unworthy, yet consecrated by the Authority of the holy Apostles; and remember of whom the Psalmist did prophesy, saying, " Gird thyself with thy Sword upon thy Thigh, O thou moll mighty," and with this Sword exercise thou the Force of Equity, and mightily destroy the Growth of Iniquity. Protect the holy Church of God, and his faithful People. Defend and help Widows and Orphans. Restore Things gone to decay, and maintain thole that are restored; that doing thus, thou mayest be glorious in the Triumph of Virtue, and excellent in the Ornament of Justice; and reign Forever, with the Saviour of the World, whole Image you bear, who with the Father and the holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth World without End. After this his Majesty was invested with the Armill, made of Cloth of Tissue; which was put about the King's Neck, and tied to the Bowings of his Arms, the Archbishop standing before the King, and faying, " Receive the Armill of Sincerity and Wisdom, as a Token of God's embracing, whereby all thy Works may be defended against thine Enemies, both bodily and ghostly, through Jesus Christ our Lord." Next the Mantle or open Pall, being made of Cloth of Gold, and lined with red Tassety, was put upon him; the Archbishop likewise using the Words of Signification, viz. " Receive this The Bath Chronicle and Weekly Gazette. [ VOL. I. ] Pall, which is formed with four Corners to let thee understand that the four Cornets of the World are subject to the Power of God, and that no Man can happily reign upon Earth, who hath not received his Authority from Heaven." In the next Place the Archbishop took the. Crown and blessed it, saying, " God the Crown of the Faithful, who on the Heads of thy Saints placeth Crowns of Glory, bless and sanctify this Crown, that as the same is adorned with divers precious Stones, so this thy Servant, wearing it, may fee replenished of thy Grace with the mani- fold Gifts of all precious Virtues, through the King eternal, thy Son our Lord." Then the Archbishop, being assisted by several Bishops, put the Crown reverently upon his Majesty's Head, at which Sight all the Spectators with loud and repeated Shouts, cried, God save the KING The Trumpets founded, and upon a Signal given the great Guns in the Park and in the Tower were fired. At the ceasing of these Acclamations, the Arch- bishop went on, saying, " God crown thee with a Crown of Glory and Righteousness, with the Honour and Virtue of Fortitude; that, by a right Faith and manifold Fruits of good Works, thou mayest obtain the Crown of an everlasting Kingdom, by the Gift of him whose Kingdom endureth forever." All the Peers then put on their Coronets, the Bishops their Caps, the representing Dukes of Aquitain and Normandy their Hats, the Knights of the Garter, and those of the Bath, their Caps with Plumes of Feathers, and the Kings of Arms their Coronets. The Archbishop then proceeded with the Di- vine Offices; and after he had delivered the Bible to his Majesty, and solemnly read the Benedic- tions, his Majesty was pleated to kiss the Arch bishops and Bishops, as they kneeled before him one after another. Then Te Deum being sung, his Majesty was lifted into his Throne, where all the Peers did their Homages, during which Time Medals of Gold were given to the Peers and Peeresses, and Medals of Silver thrown among the People; which latter was also done in the Return of the Procession to Westminster- Hall. These Solemnities being finished, the Queen, supported by the Bishops of London and Win- chester, went to the Steps of the Altar, and be- ing anointed with the holy Oil on the Head and Breads, and receiving the Ring, the Archbishop reverently set the Crown upon her Majesty's Head, whereupon the three Princesses and the Peeresses put on their Coronets, and her Ma- jesty having received the Scepter with the Cross and the Ivory Rod with the Dove, was conducted to her Throne. Then their Majesties having made their record Oblations, received the holy Communion, and the Prayers being ended, went into St. Ed- ward's Chapel, where his Majesty was arrayed, in Robes of Purple Velvet, and having received the Crown of State, and her Majesty the like Crown, the Return was made to Westminster- Hall, in the Method of the former Procession, save that the Peers who carried any of the Regalia, which had been left behind in St. Edward's Chapel, the Scepter with the Cross, and the Orb then in his Majesty's Hands, and the Scepter with the Cross, and Ivory Rod, then in her Majesty's Hands, went now in their Ranks, according to their Degrees of Consecration.
