Of INTELLECTUAL PLEASURE. IT is. to be observed in the Life of the famous Dr. MORE, that by a constant Adherence to one temperate and regular Course of Diet and Ex- ercise, he fitted and prepared his Body to be an Assistant to his Mind in contemplative Studies: ' Till at length the evil Tendency of Nature was almost entirely subdued, and his Appetites were 110 otherwise perceived by him, than by their Ad- monitions for his necessary corporal Refreshment, and their Assistance of his elevated Conceptions. His Passions were refined by his Virtues, his Vir- tues were strengthened by his Passions: The Vi- vacity of his Imagination gave Life to the Soli- dity of his Judgment, and in the same Manner his corporal Functions coincided so willingly with the Rectitude of his Thoughts, that the Body ne- ver led the Mind astray, nor did the Mind need to exert a painful Soverign over the Body. Perhaps the Author of this Account may have tarried the Point too far: But tho' such an Union of intellectual and sensual Pleasure may not be found in extreme Perfection, it is Certainly pro- bable and even actual in a Degree. So close an Union must have been designed by Providence for wife Purposes and happy Effects And even in this Life the Energy of Religion, the Prevalence of Custom, and the Watchfulness of a well- dis- posed Mind may produce such an Harmony in the Human Frame, as may soften the Cares of this Life, and lift both Soul and Body into moil de- lightful Foretastes of a better. Our Bodies are higher than Temples of the Divine Grace, where Thoughts and pious Intentions be the assistant Priests, and the Fire of Devotion still kept alive, ( tho' perhaps not always vigorously burning) the Almighty Being will condescend to inhabit, Corruption and carnal Affections shall vanish in the Brightness of his Presence, and the Body puri- fied and illuminated shall assist the Soul in her sublime Speculations and righteous Dealings : 0 And if the Body must be thought an Incumbrance by that Spark of Divinity still longing for Release- ment, it will be such an one, as will by the Weight it adds to the zealous Traveller encrease his Merit and double his Reward. Intellectual Pleasure is in vain pursued, ' till the Passions and Appetites are brought under proper Restraints. The thinking Faculty can have no true Satisfaction in examining, comparing,; and surveying her own Attainments, till the Prospect within is cleared from the disagreeable Views which Vice and Depravity raise : ' Tilt these art removed the flies from her own Reflections: Science but encreases her Dismay, and Solitude ( the Nurse and Parent of true speculative Felicity) but gives Light to the shocking Scene. To look on our Bodics is Enemies to our Peace, would be Ingratitude to the wise and good Author of them : To cherish) them as friends, or indulge them as Favourites, would be destructive of our own spiritual Advantage. They ate, in short such as we ourselves make them: It is in the Power of Temperance, Attention, and Resolu- tion to correct them into Promoters, and of Luxury, Negligence and Inability to sooth them into Destroyers of our real Happiness. The Senses are the Wings of Contemplation We fee the present Operations of Providence, we hear the mighty Works of GOD to them who lived is the Days before US, we feel his Mercies to our- selves, and the very Means by which. we observe his Goodness are the immediate Gifts of it. In Pursuance of this Union of Sense and Un- derstanding, we are to take proper Care of out- Health, in Justice to both there Faculties ; but particularly that we may enjoy the Contemplations of the latter in their full Perfection. Sickness and Pain disturb and cloud their Beauty, and distract the Sobriety of Refitr& ion. If GOD should see fit to afflict us with Weakness and Anguish of Body, he will undoubtedly make Allowances for the Disturbance they occasion ; but we have ad- ditional Guilt to account for, if by our own De- baucheries or Want of Care, we throw ourselves into a State of Torment or Dispiritedness, and consequently into an Incapacity for religious Du- ties; embittering with Pain of our own procuring those last Moments in which we have the greatest Occasion for Tranquility, to call to our sober and serious Reflection the Things in which we have offended. The Cheats of GAMING discovered, and fairly set in View. GAMING is an inchanting Witchery, begot betwixt Idleness and Avarice, which has this Property above all otherVices, that it renders a Man incapable of prosecuting any serious Ac- tion, and makes him unsatisfied with his own Condition; he is either lifted up to the Top of mad Joy with Success, or plunged to the Bottom of Despair by Misfortune; always in Extreams, always in a Storm. HANNIBAL of MARCELLUS, that he could at be quiet neither Conqueror nor conquered.— Thus ( such is the Itch of Play) Gamesters neither winning nor losing, can rest satisfied; if they win, they think to win more ; if they lose, they hope to recover. One propounded this Question, Whether Men, in Ships at Sea, were to be accounted amongst the Living or the Dead, because there were but few Inches betwixt them and Drowning ? The same Query may be made of great Gamesters, though their Estates be never so considerable, Whether they are to be esteemed poor or rich, since there are but few Casts betwixt a Person of Fortune ( in that Circumstance) and a Beggar ? Most Gamesters begin at small Games, and, by Degrees, if their Money or Estates hold out, they rise to great Sums ; some have play'd first all their Money, then their Rings, Coach and Horses, even their Wearing- cloaths and Perukes, and then such a Farm, and at last, perhaps, a Lordship.— You may read in our Histories, how Sir Miles Partridge play'd at Dice, with King Henry the Eighth, for Jesus Bells, so called, which were the greatest in England, and hung in a Tower of St. Paul's Church, and won them; whereby he bro't them to ring in his Pocket; but the Ropes after- wards catched about his Neck, for in Edward the Sixth's Days he was hanged for criminal Offences It is not denied, but most Gamesters have, at ore Time or other, a considerable Run of Win- ning; but, ( such is the Infatuation of Play) I could never hear of a Man that gave over a Win- ter, ( I mean to give it over so as never to play ;) I am lure it is rara avis: For, if you once break Bulk, as they phrase it, they are in again for all. Sir HUMPHRY FOSTER had loll the greatest Part of his Estate, and then playing, as it is said, for a ( lead Horse, did, by happy Fortune, recover it again ; then gave over, and Wisely too. If a Man has a competent Estate of his own, and plays whether himself or another Man shall have it, it is extreme Folly: If his Estate be small, then to hazard the Lois even of that, and reduce himself to absolute Beggary, is direct Mad- ness. Besides, it has been generally, observed, that the Loss of One Hundred Pounds shall do you more Prejudice, in disquieting your Mind, than the Gain of Two Hundred Pounds shall do you Good, were you sure to keep it. If this Admonition is of any Service to the Public, I shall be glad ; the Design of its Publi- cation being to set that abominable Practice of Gaming in its true Light, in order to prevent the Unwary from being tempted into that bewitching and destructive Practice. A Letter from a Right Hon. Person to ******* in the City of London. DEAR SIR, FINDING to my great Surprise, that the Cause and Manner of my resigning the Seals, are grosly misrepresented in the City, as well as that the most gracious and spontaneous Marks of his Majesty's Approbation of my Services, which Marks followed my Resignation, have been in- famously traduced as a Bargain for my forsaking the Public, I am under a Necessity of declaring the Truth of both these Facts, in a Manner which I am sure no Gentleman will contradist. A Dif- ference of Opinion with Regard to Measures to be taken against Spain, of the highest Importance to the Honour of the Crown, and to the most es- sential national Interests ( and this founded on what Spain had already done, not on what that Court may farther intend to do) was the Cause of my resigning the Seals. Lord TEMPLE and I submitted in Writing, and signed by us, our most humble Sentiments to his Majesty Which being over- ruled by the united Opinion of all the rest of the King's Servants, I resigned the Seals 011 Monday the 5th of this Month, in order not to remain responsable for Measures which I was no longer allowed to guide. Most gracious pub- lic Marks of his Majesty's Approbation of my Services followed my Resignation : They are un- merited and unsolicited; and I shall ever be proud to have received them from the best of Sovereigns. I will now only add, my dear Sir, that I have explained these Matters only for the Honour of Truth, not in any View to court Return of Con- fidence from any Man, who with a Credulity, as weak as it is injurious, has thought fit hastily to withdraw his good Opinion from one who has served his Country with Fidelity and Success, and who justly reveres the upright and candid Judg- ment of it; little felicitous about the Censures of the Capricious and Ungenerous. Accept my sin- cerest Acknowledgments for all your kind Friend- ship, and believe me ever with Truth and Esteem, My Dear Sir, Your faithful Friend, & c, On Mr. PITT'S RESIGNATION. I. BRITAIN, by concurring Gallia scorn'd, Abalh'd her bleeding Honour mourn'd ; Minorca lost ( her Courage fled) In Dust she hid her prostrate Head, II. ' Till PITT arose, the Wife, the Brave, Ordain'd the sinking Land to save: The Minister's and Patriot's Name, Rare Union ! lifts to Heav'n his Fame. III. His Hand our' ravish'd Palm retrieves, In ev'ry Clime our Glory lives ; Where'er the Sons of France are found, Our Armies with Success are crown'd. IV. But, Britain, rose thy Sun so soon, From Darkness to the brightest Noon, Again obscur'd in sudden Night, To lose in Earth- born Milts its Light ? V. Thus purpose freed, and France subdu'd, ( Repaid with English Gratitude) CHURCHILL in Midst of Conquest fell— The rest our Enemies will tell. Friday's and Saturday's POSTS. [*** NO FOREIGN MAIL arriv'd.] London, October 15. T is rumoured, that the Lord- Chan- cellor Henley is desirous to retire from Public Business ; and that if he should resign, the Great Seal will be given to the Hon. Mr. Yorke, Soli- citor- General. It is said that the Right Hon. the Lord Gran- tham will be appointed Lord Privy Seal, the Earl of Hardwicke having declined that Office.------ Others mention Lord Holdernesse for it. At a Court of Common- council held Yesterday at Guildhall, a Motion was made to present an humble Address to the King, returning his Ma- jesty their Thanks for the Reward he hath con- ferred on William Pitt, Esq. for his important Services ; but the Motion passed in the Negative, fifty four to fourteen. Yesterday a great Number of Persons of Quality paid a Visit to the Right Hon. Mr. Pitt, at his Country- House at Hayes. It is laid that so great a jealousy was entertained of M. Bully's real Errand into England, by a certain great Personage, that from the first Mo- ment of his Arrival into this Kingdom, constant Watch was kept on all his Motions, Visits, and Excursions, by proper Messengers, regularly re- lieved, ' till the very Hour of his Departure for Dover. By a Letter from France we are informed, that there were very gre3t Rejoicings at Paris on hearing that Mr. Pitt had resigns. Yesterday Expresses were dispatched from the Admiralty, to the commanding Officers at Spit- head, at Plymouth, and in the Downs, with some important Orders. Our Troops at Belleisle are said to suffer ex- tremely by a Fever and Flux. There are 14 Hos- pitals in the Town of Palais, which are not enough to hold the great Number of Sick, therefore more are erecting. So great is the present Demand for all Kinds of Artificers Work in the Way of Shipping, that 4s. 6d. and 5s. is the common Wages for Ship- wrights, Mast and Sail- makers, Riggers, and Carpenters. We hear that the late Insolvent Act will be repealed next Sessions. It appears by a Will that was, within these few Days, brought up to the Commons to be proved, that a Lady who lately died within a few Miles of this City, ordered, that previously to her being put into her Coffin, her Throat should be cut from Ear to Ear ; which was accordingly complied - ith. We hear that a Regiment is to be raised in the Highlands of Scotland, and called the Queen's, Royal Regiment of Highlanders; and that the Command is given to Lord Adam Gordon. There is a Confirmation come of the York, Captain Peter Hassey, of and from Liverpoole) bound to Bonny, 011 the Coast of Africa, being taken seventeen Days after she failed by the Amy- thiste, a French Frigate. On Saturday the Coroner's Inquest fat at Har- mansworth in Middlesex on the Body of Ann Parrott ( whese Husband Richard Parrott, now a Prisoner in Newgate, some Time since cut out her Tongue, which occasioned her Death) and bro't in their Verdict Wilful Murder against the Hus- band; on which the Coroner lent his Warrant of Detainer to Newgate, charging the said Richard Parrott with Wilful Murder. Parrott owns he had been married to her near Years; acknow- ledges the Crime he is charged with; and says, the Reason of his committing it was, that she fe- veral Times eudeavoured to poison him. *** 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. [ VOL. By Letters from Philadelphia, dated in AU- gust last, we hear that there has been a grand Treaty held with the Indians, to the Number of 500, at East- Town in that Province, for the re- newing of Friendship, which was concluded with many Prosessions of Sincerity on both Sides : But the Indians, at the Conclusion, demanded Satis- faction for a large Trail Of Land, ( the settling which, without paying them was the Ground of the Michiefs which have befallen the Back Set- tlers, and brought on the late Indian War) some Persons, who had the Care of the Treaty on be- half of the Province, evading their Demands, it occasioned some warm Threats from Tedeuscune, the Chief of the Delawars, that if War should again commence, their Brethren the English must look into their own Hearts for the Cause, which was seconded by the Chiefs of the six Nations, who were present. It is well worth the while of the Legislator, that Justice ( liquid be done them, and a small Matter, perhaps 4 or 5001. might be Sufficient, and prevent the dreadful Effects of an Indian War. By Letters said to have arrived Yesterday from Madrid, we have Advice, that the Report of a late Treaty having been concluded between the Courts of France and Spain, for assisting each other against the allied Powers, was entirely groundless, and that his Catholic Majesty having been Wide acquainted therewith, had ordered Letters to be dispatched to his Minister at the Court of Great Britain, Prussia and the Hague, to notify to the several Powers where they reside, that he had not the least Intention of giving Um- brage to the said Courts, by entering into any Treaty with his most Christian Majesty, which might involve him in an unnecessary War, more especially as such a Proceeding would unnecessary prove a great Interruption to the Commerce of his Subjects. The last Letters from the Hague say, that it is apprehended the Views of Spain respect Italy, and that in Consideration of a considerable Loan, the Court of Versailles will riot oppose her settling Things there in her Own Way. Letters from Spain, by Yesterday's Groyne Mail, give an Account that several People had been taken up at Son Roque, and severely repri- manded by Order of the Governor, for their par tial Behaviour to the French Privateers. If we may depend upon Letters from several Parts of Italy, there is a Treaty on the Carpet between the Courts of Naples, Parma, and Mo- dena, which has been conducted with the utmost Secrecy; but not without giving Umbrage to other Courts, though nothing is known with Cer- tainty as to its Contents. Accounts from Hamburgh are directly contra dictory. Some Letters say, that the Flames of War are like to spread farther and farther; others, that a Peace will certainly take Place before the End of the Year. By a Letter from Paris, by the Way of Holland, we learn, that there were great Debates in the French Council for and against the Terms offered by England: The Majority were against it; but the King's Resolution was daily expected. Particular Advices from the Hague of the 9th Inft. say, that the fruitless breaking up of the Conferences between the Courts of Great Britain and France, had occasioned some Deliberations in the Assembly of the States, who resolved there- upon to put their Naval Force into a proper Con- dition of Defence against any Emergency. The last Letters from Vienna inform us, that the Ministry were employed in planning new Taxes, which might raise Money enough not only for the next Campaign, but as long as the War should last: That they still flattered themselves, that though Marshal Butterlin had been obliged, by the Loss of his Magazines, to repass the Oder, Gen. Laudohn would strike some signal Blow, either in Silesia or the Territories of Brandenbourg, as it had been determined that near 30,000 Rus- sians should keep the Field with him, and after- wards be cantoned in Bohemia and Moravia, at the Expence of the Empress Queen, that they might take the Field early next Year. The Distemper among the horned Cattle makes great Havock in the Electorate of Hanover. HOPE and FEAR. THE Promises of Hope are sweeter than Roses in the Bud, and far more flattering to Ex- pectation ? but the Threatnings of Fear. are a Terror to the Heart. Nevertheless, let not Hope allure, nor Fear de- ter thee, from doing that which is right; so that thou be prepared to meet all Events with an equal Mind. The Terrors even of Death are no Terrors to the Good ; He that committeth no Evil hath no- thing to fear. In all thy Undertakings let'a reasonable Assu- rance animate thy Endeavours; if thou despairest of Success thou shall not succeed. Terrify not thy Soul with vain Fears, neither let thy Heart sink within thee from the Phantoms of Imagination. From Fear proceedeth Misfortune; but he that hopeth helpeth himself. As the Ostrich when porsued hideth his Head but forgetteth his Body ; so the Fears of a Coward expose him to Danger: If thou believest a Thing impossible, thy De- spondency shall make it so; but he that perseve- reth shall overcome Difficulties. A vain Hope flattereth the Heart of a Fool, but he that is wife pursueth it not. In all thy Desires let Reason go along with thee, and fix not thy Hopes beyond the Bounds of Probability : So shall Success attend thy Un- dertakings, thy Heart shall rot be vexed with Disappointments. A Letter from Sir Henry Sidney, to his Son Sir Philip * Sidney, containing Rules for his Conduct in Life. Son PHILIP, IHave received two Letters from you, the one in Latin, the other in French, which I take in good Part; and will you to exercise that Prac tice of learning often, for it will stand you in Stead in that Profession of Life, which you are born to live in ; and now since this is my first Letter that ever I did write to you, I will not that it be all empty of some Advices, which my natural Care of you provoketh me to with you, to follow as Documents to you in this tender Age. Let your first Action be the lifting up of your Hands and Mind to Almighty GOD by hearty Prayer, and feelingly digest the Words you speak in Prayer with continual Meditations, and think- ing of him to whom you pray ; and use this at an ordinary or particular Hour, whereby the Time. itself will put you in Remembrance, to do that Thing, which you are accustomed to do in that Time. Apply your Study in such Hours, as your dis- creet Master doth assign you, earnestly; and the Time, I know, he will so limit, as shall be both sufficient for your Learning, and safe for your Health. And mark the Sense and Matter of that you read, as well as the Words; so shall you both enrich your Tongue with Words, and your Wit with Matter, and Judgment will grow as you advance in Age. Be humble and obedient to your Master ; for unless you frame yourself to obey ; yea, and to feel in yourself what Obedience is, you shall never be able to teach others how to obey you hereafter. Be courteous of Behaviour and affable to all Men, with Universality of Reverence, according to the Dignity of the Person ; there is nothing that winneth so much, with so little Cost. Use moderate Diet, so as after your Meat you may find your Wit fresher, and not duller ; and your Body more lively, and not more heavy. Seldom drink Wines, and yet sometimes do ; left, being forced on a Sudden to drink, it should inflame you. Use Exercise of Body; but such as may in no wile endanger your Bones nor Joints : It will much increase your Strength, and inlarge your Breath. Delight to be cleanly, as well in all Parts of your Body, as in your Garments; it shall make you graceful in each Company, and otherwise you will become loathsome. Give yourself to be merry, for you degenerate from your Father, if you find not yourself more able in Wit and Body to do any Thing when you be most merry: But let your Mirth be ever void of Scurrility and biting Words to any Person ; for a Wound given by a Word is. harder to be cured, than that which is given by a Sword. Be you rather a Hearer and a Bearer- away of other Men's Talk, than a Beginner or Procurer of Speech, otherwise you will be accounted to de- light to hear yourself speak. Be modest in all Companies, and rather be laughed at by light Fellows for a Maiden Shame- facedness, than of your sober Friends for pert Boldness. Think upon every Word you will speak before you utter it; and remember how Nature hath, as it were, rampired up the Tongue with Teeth, Lips, yea, and Hair without the Lips ; and all betoken Reins and Bridles to the restraining the Use of that Member. Above all Things, tell no Untruth ; no, not in Trifles, the Custom of it is nought, and let it not satisfy you, that the Hearers for a Time take it for a Truth, for afterwards it will be known, as it is, to Shame; and there cannot be a greater Reproach to a Gentleman, than to be accounted a Lyar. Study, and endeavour yourself to be virtuously occupied, so shall you make such a Habit of well- doing, as you shall not know how to do Evil, though you would. Remember, my Son, the noble Blood you are descended from by your Mother's Side ; and think, that only by a virtuous Life and good Actions, you may be an Ornament to your illustrious Fa- mily ; and otherwise, through Vice and Sloth, you will be esteemed labes generis, which is one of the greatest Curses that can happen to Man. Well, my little PHILIP, this is enough for me, and, I fear, too much for you at this Time; but yet, if I find that this light Meat of Digestion do nourish any Thing the weak Stomach of your young Capacity, I will, as I find the same grow stronger, feed it with toughter Food ; farewel.— Your Mother and I send you our Blessing, and Almighty GOD grant you his; and nourish you with his Fear, guide you with his Grace, and make you a good Servant to your Prince and Country. Your loving Father, HENRY SIDNEY. * Sir PHILIP was mortally wounded in an Action mar Zutphen, in Gelderland. His witty Performance The Arcadia, is in most People's Hands. EPIGRAM.

HAGUE, OCT. 15. WE have received no direct Accounts from Prince Ferdinand's Army. It is reported, that his Serene Highness had decamped from Williamstahl the 1st of this Month, and had drawn nearer the Dymel. The French have evacuated East- Friesland. We have no News that can be depended on with Respect to the Progress of the Siege of Colberg. Letters from Vienna of the 6th Instant say, that the King of Prussia having quitted his strong Camp at Pultzen, and marched towards Neiss, General Laudohn had taken that Opportunity to surprize Schweidnitz. This Event happened early in the Morning of the first Inst. The Austrians attacked the four Out- works at once, and so sud- denly, that the Garrison had fearcely Time to discharge some few Cannon from the Ramparts upon them. In one of the Works, a Magazine of Powder took Fire, and blew up 300 of the As- sailants, and as many of the Garrison. Having seized the Out- works, the Austrians immediately placed their Scaling- Ladders against the Walls of the Town, forced open the Gates, and, by Day- Break, were entirely Matters of the Place, after a very short Resistance, and made five Battalions, consisting of 3000 Men, Prisoners, to- gether with the Governor Lieut. Gen. Zastrow, and got Possession of all the Prussian Artillery, and Magazines of Meal. — The Loss on the Part of the Austrians was about 600 Men. [ SCHWEIDNITZ, the Capital of the Principality of the same Name, is a strong Fortress situated on the Weistritz, in one of the most delightful Countries in Si- lesia. Its Strength formerly consisted in a triple Wall; to his own excellent Disposition, your Royal High- ness has a Right to share with him the Acknow- ledgments and Applauses of his People, upon every Event that has, or shall Hereafter signalize his happy Reign. In that Respect, we beg Leave to approach your Royal Highness, and pronounce you the happiest of Mothers', who, in the Vigour of your. Age, hate lived already to see every Thing accomplished in your Son, that the fondest Parent could wish for a Child, or the most affectionate Subjects for their Sovereign. You have seen him exalted to the Throne in the Bloom of his Years ; the Darling of his Peo- ple ; and the Terror of his Enemies; and in this glorious Situation, when nothing was wanting 10 consummate his, or our Happiness, but a worthy Partner of his Throne. Your Royal Highness sees now that Circumstance added to the rest ; and the Throne now compl, eatly tilled with a Lady who is the Admiration of her new Subjects A Lady destined by Providence, and prepared by her own Merit, to be exulted to this Height, where the Lustre of a Crown will receive Addition from her Virtues and rare Accomplishments. May this great Event insure to this Nation a perpetual Succession of Monarchs ; and permit us to assure your Royal Highness, we shall always remember, with Gratitude ; that Person, from whole Instruction and Example we have received our King ; and from whom consequently all the Blessings we now enjoy are principally derived.

Eyre, Chief Engineer. Sir William is taking a Tour quite round from Niagara to Fort Detroit, and round by Pittsburgh, we sup- pose to quiet the Indians, who seem uneasy by the Persuasion of the French, that they will all either be enslaved or cut off, if they suffer us to go on and make such large Conquests in their Country. The greatest Part of Gage's Light Infantry, which arrived here last Week, with Ma- jor Gladwin, embarked this Morning by Sun- Rise, on board Batteaus for Niagara.

Roxin, the Prussian Minister, has been murdered on the Road by a Janissary, who served him for a Guard and Guide. The Janis- sary had been some Years in M. Roxin's Service. The Letters have been found and brought back to the Prussian Minister. Several extraordinary Councils have lately been held, but the Result is kept a profound Secret. Meanwhile Orders have been sent to all the Sea- Ports of the Turkish Do- minions, to hinder the Exportation of Corn ; a Scarcity of Provisions having been the Occasion of many Disorders in this Empire. but in 1748 King Frederick II. caused it to be fortified with regular and very strong Works. The Parish Church here is in the Hands of the Jesuits, who got Footing in this Town in 1629, and are likewise pos- sessed of a College and Seminary adjoining to it. In 1757 it was taken by the Austrian's ; and in 1758 the Prussians recovered it after a Siege of 16 Days. ] London. WHITEHALL, Oct. 17.

On the first Inst. the Troops under the Prince of Conde opened Trenches before Meppen, and on the 3rd in the Afternoon the Place surrendered. We found in it Warlike Stores, and a great Quantity of Ef- fects and Provisions of all Kinds belonging to the English, Part of which was burnt by the Obusiers; unhappily the Flames spread, and a great Number of Houses have been burnt down. The Garrison consisted of 500 Men, including 17 Officers ; and there were about 40 Cannon mounted in it.—[ MEPPEN is the Capital of a Bai- liwick of the same Name, in the Bishoprie of Munster, the North Part of which joins to East- Friesland. is a Place pretty well fortified.

The Go- vernor of the latter has taken all the Precautions that are possible to prevent a Scarcity of Provi- sions in Cafe that Place should be attacked. He hath caused a great Quantity of Millet and other Grain to be lowed to supply the Place of Corn and he has besides ordered the Inhabitants to lay in Provisions for six Months, and hath forbidden their killing any Oxen. Letters from Florence observe, that the King of Sardinia keeps a numerous Army in Readiness to take the Field, and is putting, his frontier Towns in a good Posture of Defence; and that they are doing the same in Austrian Lombardy next to the Confines of Piedmont.

A new Cottage- House, situated upon the Banks of a small Rivulet at Mabgate, near Leeds, in which was Furniture to the Amount of 20l. and upwards, was entirely swept away by the Violence of the Current, about Five in the Morning ; the Inhabitants, a poor Woman and her Son, left their Beds just before the Flood swept all away, or they must inevitably have perished. The Friends of England at the Hague are very apprehensive lest the French should get possession of Bremen, where the Allies have large Magazines. A Resolution is taken by the Court of Vienna to impose the same heavy Taxes on Coaches, Horses and Livery- Servants, which are paid in Holland. They tell us from the Hague, That by the Terms of the Treaty which was on the Point of being concluded with M. de Buffy, France was not to send any Ship of War to any Port of Ame- rica, but only Fishing- Vessels and that English Commissaries were to be permitted to search them. That, all the French Ships taken before the War was declared, were to be the Property of the Cap- tors ; That the Hanoverian, Hessian, and Bruns- wick Troops in British Pay were to remain on Foot in Germany, and the English to return Home : That the Armies of the Marshals Broglio and Soubise were also to return to France, evacu- ating , Cleaves, Wesel, Ostend and Nieuport, & c. and that notwithstanding any Engagement with, the Court of Vienna, France was to assist her with 25,000 Men only : But England might give what Assistance she pleased to the King of Prussia.

The Letters from France, by the Flanders Mail, give us to understand, that the new Treaty between the, Courts of Versailles and Madrid is a Renewal only of the Family Compact in 1743 ; whether there be any additional Articles is altogether uncertain. By a Soldier who came from Belleisle for Gal- way the 29th of last Month, and is since arrived in England, we are informed that the Report, of an Epidemical Distemper, raging there is without Foundation, nothing put common Sicknesses, in- cident to human Nature, having seen observed in that Island : He farther says, between 4 and 5000 Troops were ready for Embarkation, but their Destination was not known. The Prussian Troops under the Command of Lieut. Gen. Platen joined Prince Eugene of Wir- temberg on the jd of this Month ; when the Forces of those two Generals amounted, to 32,000 Men, and they expected every Moment to be joined by 8000 Cavalry, detached from the Ar- mies of the King and Prince Henry, which, it is thought, will enable them to frustrate the new Scheme ; of Field Marshal Butterlini. They write from the Frontiers of Turky, that the Cham of Tartary had been very unsuccessful against the Circassians.

" On the 21st of May last, James's Fort was attacked by two Snows in the Enemy's Service, supposed to be Prizes to the French Frigate Ame- thist, of 32 Guns, and 350 Men, then lying about five Leagues from the Fort; but they met so warm a Reception, that one of the Snows, of 16 Guns, & 150 Men, was driven on Shore : All the Crew, except 4, quitted her, and got on board the other Vessel in Consort, which made her Escape. I am told, that she, in Conjunction with the Frigate, failed about eight Days ago, destined, it is imagined, for Sierraleon." By the last Letters from New York we are in- formed, that the Secret Expedition would be ready to fail by the Beginning of September ; and that it was generally believed to be intended for an Attack upon Martinico ; the rather, as they were to take on board twelve complete Regiments, be- sides a vast Number of large Camion, Bombs, and Mortars. The Battalions of Rufane's, Colville's, Mor- gan's, and Grey's, which were embarking at Belleisle, are supposed for Martinico, under con- voy of the Temeraire, Capt. Barton, and Actaeon, Capt. Ourry. Col, Johnson, late of the Regiment of Horse Guards Blue, is appointed Colonel of a Regiment of Horse in Ireland. Stores and Provisions, particularly a great Quantity of Beer, are embarking for Use of the Army in Germany. They write from Dresden of the 30th ult. that Prince Henry had dispatched another Body of 8000 Men towards Leipsic, in order to cover that Place against any Attempt from the Army of the Empire. By a private Letter from Dunkink, we learn, that two of our Men of War's Long- Boats, manned with about seventy Men each, had the Courage lately to go into that Port, and brought off with them a Privateer within the Fire of their Forts. The PRUDE. CHLOE, at Church, with Looks devout, Was overheard to say, My Morning Glass is almost out, A Husband, Lord, I pray. A drollish Spark, that near her sat, Determined for a Joke, Reply'd with Voice effeminate, As if an Angel spoke ; Thou shalt no longer be a Maid ; Thou hast neglected been: Thank ye, good Spirit, CHLOE said, And loudly cry'd AMEN.

Give me the Man that's learned without Pretence, Blest with Good- nature, and his Share, of Sense ; Whole generous, open, undesigning Heart, Disdains to act a mean dissembling Part ; Who never by base and selfish Motives swayed Deceived a Maiden, or a Friend betrayed : But Virtue's Votary from his early Youth, Strictly adheres to Piety and Truth: Such be the Man with whom I'd spend my Life, Or may I never own the Name of Wife.
