ESSAY on BEAUTY. Noris quàm elegans formarum spectator siem. TERENT. MY Design is not to enquire into the Nature and Effects of BEAUTY, but only to point out such Qualifications as are necessary to make it truly amiable, and without it is rather a Disgrace than an Ornament to the Person pos- sess'd of it. The first of these is VIRTUE. This, I think, is absolutely necessary in all Persons of every Age and Condition, to make them agreeable, and recommend them to our Esteem and Approba- tion. An handsome Courtezan is a very mean and contemptible Creature : The Beauty of her Face, instead of excusing her Folly, adds to the Deformity of her Character; and whoever is ac- quainted with the one, can take but little Plea- sure in the other. If she has receiv'd any Ad- vantages from Nature or Education, her Abuse of these tends to aggravate her Guilt, and ren- der her more odious and disagreeable, In short, the most celebrated Peeress in the Land, that has lost her Innocence, will appear no less unamiable in the Eyes of a Man of Sense, than the meanest Orange- Wench in Drury- Lane. The second necessary Qualification is MO- DESTY ; by which I understand, not barely such a modest Deportment as becomes all Persons of either Sex alike, but withal a certain graceful Bashfulness, which is the peculiar Ornament and Characteristic of the Fair Sex. There is a De- gree of Boldness very allowable and even com- mendable in a Man, which is quite unnatural in a Woman : In the one it denotes Courage, in the other an impertinent Assurance and Haugh- tiness. The more feminine Softness and Beauty any one has in her Countenance, the more in- sufferable is her masculine Behaviour : Her good Qualities ( if she has any) will be generally un- observed, seldom approved of, and never com- mended ; and tho' in all other Respects she may be compleatly amiable, yet for Want of a be- coming MODESTY she will appear compleatly disagreeable. The third Thing requisite is GOOD- SENSE. Beauty without this is insipid; and however it may raise our Compassion, it can never make us admire the Possessor of it. Her very Looks will betray her Weakness ; her languishing Airs and forc'd Smiles give us a Disgust to the most exqui- site Features and the fairest Complexion ; and when once the begins to speak, her Charms va- nish in an Instant. To be pleased with the Beauty of a Fool, is a Mark of the greatest Folly. After Good- Sense comes GOOD- NATURE; which is as graceful to the Mind, as Beauty is to the Body. It makes Virtue appear in the most amiable Light, and adds a Lustre to every other good Quality. It gives the finishing Stroke, if I may so say, to an handsome Face, and spreads such an engaging Sweetness over it, as no Art can equal, or any Words describe. On the other Hand, the Frowns of Ill- nature disgrace the finest Countenance ; not even the Wrinkles of old Age can make it so homely and deformed. A Scold, tho' never so handsome, is universally hated and avoided ; the very Sight of her is odi- ous, and her Company intolerable. I shall mention but one more Qualification re- quisite to make Beauty amiable; and that is GOOD- BREEDING. Asa precious Stone, when. unpolished, appears rough, so Beauty without Good- Breeding is aukward and unpleasing. Na ture indeed is at all Times the same, but does not discover its Beauty ' till refined and improved by Art. A genteel Behaviour, though it can- not alter the Shape and Complexion of a fine Woman, is however necessary to make them agreeable Virtue, Modesty, Good Sense, and Good- Nature, will signify but little without it. ' Tis not sufficient that a Woman has good Fea- tures and an handsome Person, unless she knows how to shew them off to the best Advantage ; nor will the finest Accomplishments make her com- pleatly agreeable, unless they are properly im- proved by a good Education, and appear con- spicuous in a polite Behaviour. Every Man of Sense and Taste will, I believe, allow the Necessity of the Qualifications above- mentioned to make Beauty truly amiable ; and that, not withstanding they all equally contribute to effect this, yet if one of them only is want- ing, the others will have but little Power with- out it. How inexpressibly amiable must that Person be, in whom all these Qualifications unite ! whose Countenance bespeaks the most untainted Virtue; whose Looks are full of the most en- gaging Modesty ; from whose Eyes Good- Sense and Good- Nature dart their enlivening Rays; and whose whole Behaviour is a perfect Pattern of Good- Breeding! BATH affords a remarka- ble Instance of the most exquisite Beauty, thus adorned with every good Quality and desirable Accomplishmen:- But here I must stop my Pen, and leave it to some abler Hand to draw a Picture of the matchless Miss Our BATH Readers will easily know how to fill up this Blank ; and our other Readers may supply it with whatever Name they think deserv- ing the Character. To the PRINTER of the Bath Chronicle and Weekly Gazette. SIR, BRISTOL, Oct. 31, 1761. ON perusing your Paper of the 22d Inst. I observed four Lines on Mr. PITT'S resigning the Seals.— I am heartily sorry for the Occasion, though I cannot but smile at the superstitious Notion of Omens. If through the Channel of your Paper the Author will see the following, and if you think proper to insert them therein, they are at your Service. I am your's, & c. J. E To the Author of four Lines in the Bath Chronicle of the 22d Inst. " on Mr. PITT'S resigning the Seals." SIR,— t'other Day you said, most fit, We've loft a Jewel,— losing PITT : For, I believe, his Foes must own, " He was the noblest of the Crown." But, as you add, that " Heav'n did send " Its Omens ne'er in vain," my Friend, Inform us how we must expound The Omen of a * JEWEL found. Perhaps you'll say, it shews the Nation PITT will again resume his Station ; Or that we possibly shall find His Qualities in W** D** M join'd. Or, if you to your Aid invoke The canine Howl, or Raven's Croak, ( Both which are thought portentous Signs, And have been heard in these our Times) Perhaps the Death of Faction's meant, Of Envy, Pride, and Discontent : That all domestic Feuds will cease, And every Enemy to Peace. That in our Courts bale Bribery, And most perfidious Treachery, Will live no more.— France then shall know, Better be England's Friend, than Foe. All which is the Desire most fervent Of,— Sir,—- your very humble Servant. * The great Jewel in the King's Crown was soon found again, and I suppose without receiving any Damage. ANGER. AS the Whirl wind in its Fury teareth up Trees, and desormeth the Face of Nature; or as an Earthquake in its Convulsions overturneth whole Cities; so the Rage of an angry Man throw- eth Mischief around him; Danger and Destruc- tion wait on his Hand. But consider, and forget not thine own Weak- ness ; so shalt thou pardon the Failings of others. Indulge not thyself in the Passion of Anger ; it is whetting a Sword to wound thy own Breast, or murder thy Friend. If thou beared slight Provocations with Pa- tience, it shall be imputed unto thee for Wisdom; and if thou wiped them from thy Remembrance, thy Heart shall not reproach thee. See'st thou not that the angry Man loseth his Understanding ? Whilst thou art yet in thy Senses, let the Wrath of another be a Lesson to thyself. Do nothing in a Passion ; why wilt thou put to Sea in the Violence of a Storm ? If it be difficult to rule thine Anger, it is wife to prevent it; avoid therefore all Occasions of falling into Wrath, or guard thyself against them whenever they occur. A Fool is provoked with insolent Speeches, but a wife Man laugheth them to Scorn. Harbour not Revenge in thy Bread, it will torment thy Heart, and discolour its best Incli- nations. Be always more ready to forgive than to return an Injury : He that watches an Opportunity of Revenge, lyeth in wait against himself, and draw- eth down Mischief on his own Head. A mild Answer to an angry Man, like Water cad upon the Fire, abateth his Heat ; and from an Enemy he shall become thy Friend. Consider how few Things are worthy of An- ger, and thou wilt wonder that any but Fools should be wroth. In Folly or Weakness it always beginneth ; but rememember and be well assured, it seldom concludeth without Repentance. On the Heels of Folly treadeth Shame ; at the Back of Anger standeth Remorse. The DISINTERESTED LOVER I'VE wonder'd which, when Poets sing Transporting DELIA'S Praise, They most endeavour to obtain, The Lady or the Bays. One might suppose a Face so fair The hardest Heart would move, And that those Features would inspire All who beheld with Love. Young STREPHON sung in noblest Strains, And DeLIA was his Theme, But he the Laurel Crown obtain'd, Despis'd the matchless Dame. O Strephon, STREPHON, could you then Thus act so mean a Part, And disregard th' united Charms Of Nature and of Art ? Could then that more than mortal Face, That love- commanding Mein, Those sparkling Eyes and ruby Lips, With Bread unmov'd be seen ? Could Third of Glory make you thus So gross a Fault commit, As to despise th' intrinsic Worth Of Beauty join'd to Wit ? We all, I own, are fond of Fame, And Candidates for Praise But let me only DELIA have, And take who will the Bays. T. N. Friday's and Saturday's Posts Arriv'd a MAIL from FLANDERS. Germany. COESFELD, 0ct. 13. HE Prince de Soubise, convinced that the leading Men in East Friesland had no Share in the Insurrection of the Peasants, who took Arms against the French Troops, hath not only remitted a Part of the Contributions, but hath also given the Sum of 100,000 Livres, to be distributed among the poor People who have been the greatest Sufferers by the French. Italy. CIVITA VECCHIA, Oct. I. The Corsican Privateers have taken three Genoese Vessels laden with Provisions and Stores for Bastia. Genoa is so tired of the War which she wages with her Subjects of Corsica, that any Potentate might make a cheap Purchase of her Right to that Island. France. PARIS, Oct. 15. The King hath given the Duke the Choifeul the Palace of Bourbon, for the Reception of foreign Ambassadors. PORT L'ORIENT, Sept. 29. ON the 17th ar- rived here a Flag of Truce from Belleisle, with 12oo Inhabitants of that Island.—[ The high Price of Provisions probably obliges these People to go over to the Continent.] London, October 29. Yesterday there was a great Court at St. James's ; most of the great Officers of State were there. It is thought the approaching Meeting of the House of Commons will be the fulled of any for several Years past. It is said, the Hon. George Grenville will be appointed Chancellor of the Exchequer. On Saturday last Sir James Hodges, the Town Clerk, waited on the Hon. William Pitt, Esq. at Hayes, with the Address of Thanks from this City for the many important Services he had done the Nation during the Time of his holding the Place of Secretary of State ; to which Mr. Pitt returned the following Answer : " Mr. Pitt requests of Sir James Hodges, that he will be so good to represent him, in the most respectful Manner, to the Lord Mayor, Alder- men, and Commons of the City of London, in Common Council assembled, and express his high Sense of the signal Honour which they have been pleased to confer on him, by their condescending and favourable Resolution of the 22d of October ; an Honour which he receives with true Reverence and Gratitude, not without Confusion at his own small Deservings, while he views with Exultation the universal public Spirit dispersed through an united People ; and the matchless Intrepidity of the British Sailors and Soldiers conducted by Officers justly famed through all the Quarters of the World : To this Concurrence of national Vir- tue, graciously protected by the Throne, all the national Prosperities ( under the Favour of Hea- ven) has been owing; and it will ever be remem- bered to the Glory of the City of London, that through the whole Course of this arduous War the great Seat of Commerce has generously set the illustrious Example of steady Zeal for the Dignity of the Crown, and of unshaken Firm- ness and Magnanimity." John Huske, Esq. is appointed Secretary to the Hon. Cha. Townshend, in his intended Embas- sage to Constantinople. ** 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 Earl of Bristol, likewise, is charged with a Commission of the utmost Importance to these Kingdoms ; but the Contents of it are not yet known. It is said, that the Earl of Bristol, our Ambas- sador at Madrid, has Orders to make a formal Demand of Indemnification of Damages by the Detention of the Antigallican Privateer, and her Prize the Duke de Penthievre Indiaman. We are credibly informed, and that from very good Authority, that the Court of Spain never intended that Mr. Bussy should insist upon any Claims or Demands on their Part in his Negotia- tions here ; they only recommended to him, that when he was fettling the Interests of his own Court at London, in regard to North America, he might propose the fettling at the fame Time some Differences of an old Handing, which had not yet been, finally adjusted between them and the British Court : And that they had since de- clared to our Minister at Madrid, that they by no Means authorised him to advance these Claims in the Manner he did, nor had any Intention to depart in the least from the strict Neutrality they had hitherto inviolably preserved between the Bel- ligerant Powers. The Messenger who lately went Express to the Court of Madrid, we are told, was charged with Instructions to demand a Copy or Sight of the Treaty concluded in August last between that Crown and France, and then to act accordingly. It is said that the many Partialities shewn by the Spaniards to the French, during the present War, will come under the Consideration of the House of Commons, and that it will be one of the first Things they will proceed on. At the Meeting of the Parliament, the follow- ing Alteration in the Insolvent Act, in regard to the Compulsive Clause, is laid to be intended to be proposed, viz. that no Person shall be permit- ted to receive his Clearance by it, unlets in Actual Custody before the 25th of October, 1760, or whose Debts were contrasted before that Time. Many are of Opinion that an Act of Grace ( with some few Exceptions) will pals the ensuing Session of Parliament, there not having been such an Act since the Year 1702. It is said an Act of Grace will soon take Place in Portugal, on Account of the Birth of the Prince - of Beirr. We are informed, that Mons. L'Abbe de Ville, will set out in a few Days from Paris, as Ambas- saour to this Court, in the Room of M. de Bully. Letters from Paris fay, that M. Bussy has been appointed to proceed with a Commission of Im- portance to the Court of Vienna. The Dutch East- India Company have received Advice from Ceylon, that the Inhabitants of that Place had rose and destroy'd all the Dutch residing there, with their Plantations of Cinnamon, & c. Yesterday a Gentleman arrived in Town from the Havannah, and brings Advice, that there were seven Spanish Men of War of 74 Guns each, arrived there. The following is said to be an exact Account of the Number of Ships of War in Spain. At Ferrol 16 ; at Cadiz 12 ; at Carthagena 8 ; at Ali- cant 6 ; at Malaga 6. In all 48, of the Line ; and these built by English Builders, the rest of their Navy Worm- eaten, and rotting in their Docks ; and of these Forty- eight, they are not now able to Man compleatly Twenty. It is reported, that in order to render more easy the Expence of maintaining the great Num- ber of French Prisoners, at present in the several Hospitals and Places of Safety in this Kingdom, a Proposal has been made for the Employment of such of them as are able and willing to work at their respective Trades, and for such as have no Calling, to be employed either by Land or Sea. A Frigate and a Sloop of War are ordered for the Coast of Africa, to secure our Trade in those Parts. Under their Convoy will be sent some Transports with Ammunition and Provisions. The Project of wintering in Hanover being despaired of, the States of Liege have received Orders to prepare for lodging 20 French Batta- lions and 25 Squadrons. Letters from Prince Ferdinand's Quarters at Bruhn inform us, that Marshal Broglio, with a Part of his Troops, had passed the Weser with an Intent to attack Munster. But that his Highness having received Intelligence of their Design, had detached the Hereditary Prince with a strong Body of the Allies to oppose him, which it is imagined will bring on an immediate Action. Our Letters from Hanover regret that Duke Ferdinand had not 10,000 Men more; in which Case they think it evident, from what has been done under so manifest an Inferiority, that he would have cleared Germany of the French, and have raised such a Spirit in the Princes of the Em- pire, as would have prevented their passing the Rhine during the War. The forcing them to raise the Siege of Brunswick, and to evacuate Wolfenbuttel, justifies this Observation. They write from Brussels, that 200 Oxen and as many Cows passed thro' that Town, in their Way to the French Army on the Lower Rhine. By Letters from Dunkirk and Havre- de- Grace, we learn, that the French, expecting an Attack by Way of Bombardment at thole Places, were fortifying the same in a formidable Manner, for their better Security against all Events. Notice having been given to the States General that new Memoirs of Madame Pompadour, by one who is well informed of her State Intrigues, were printing at the Hague, their High Mighti- nesses have prohibited the printing and publishing of them under Pain of Imprisonment. The Bath Chronicle All the Advices from the North inform us, that Denmark is taking every Measure to increase its Forces by Sea and Land ; and that if Russia should declare War against that Crown, which is highly probable, his Danish Majesty will make no Alliance with any of the Powers at War, but support his own Cause singly by Sea and Land. The Jesuits at Paris publish, that besides Fa- ther Malagrida, who was certainly burnt at Lis- bon on the 20th of last Month, by Sentence of the Inquisition, thirty Fathers of their Order have been put to Death, as Accomplices in the late Conspiracy against his most Faithful Majesty. We hear from York, that Saturday Night last was safely delivered of three Daughters, Cha- rity, the Wife of Simon Hemsley, a poor Day Labourer, of Cattel, in the Parish of Hensin- gore, about ten Miles from that City, and on Sunday Morning they were baptized, by the Cu- rate of that Parish, by the Names of Faith, Hope, and Charity, and are all likely to live. Whereas I, William Hardyman, of London, have, without any Foundation, published and caused to be published and dispersed, in several Parts of the Kingdom, and particularly by Caleb Preston, Bookseller, in Boston ; William Wood, Bookseller, in Lincoln; Robert Davey, at St. Giles's- Gate, Norwich ; Jos. Cuthbertson, in Wellingborough ; John Berry, Grocer, in Man- chester ; William Bingley, Grocer, in Chester ; James Wild, Bookseller, in Ludlow; Thomas Wild, Bookseller, in Hereford ; JohnBlunt, Book- seller, in Ross ; Thomas Knight, Tobacconist, in Taunton ; J.

Carey, in Shepton- Mallet; and sundry other Persons ; false and scandalous Hand- Bills, Bills of Directions, and Shew- Boards, reflecting upon DICEY and Co. of Bow- Church- Yard, London, and the DAFFY'S ELIXIR made and fold by them ; for which they justly commenced a Suit at Law against me, and several other Persons I employed to disperse the said Bills and Directions ; but have been prevailed upon to stop Proceedings, on my paying Damages and Charges at Law, and also promising not to publish or disperse for the Future any Bills, Ad- vertisements, or Papers reflecting on the said DICEY and OKELL, or the DAFFY'S ELIXIR prepared and fold by them, or any Person or Persons felling their DAFFY'S ELIXIR ; and also that I will use my utmost Endeavours to prevent the dispersing of any such Bills, and will give immediate Notice for that Purpose to all Persons to whom I have ent such like Bills and Directions, to destroy them, and avoid the Consequences of offending as above, as they will answer at their Peril.

REFLECTIONS in a GROVE. DEAR happy Grovel sweet solitary Shade! Whose calm Retreat no Tumults e'er invade, All hail! ye ever quiet peaceful Scenes ! Where Peace and sacred Silence ever reigns ; Save where yon Rivulet, through the Vale below In gentle Murmurs o'er the Pebbles flow; Or where the feather'd Songsters chant their Lays, And raptur'd sing, the God of Nature's Praise. Here far from Cities, far from Noise retir'd, By Contemplation's sacred Lore inspir'd, My Soul delights o'er Nature's Page to range, To mark the varying Seasons as they change; Thro' each, to trace the vast the spacious field, Whose shifting Scene new Wonders ever yield : For in these aweful Glooms, the pensive Mind Well pleas'd may roam, to solemn Thought in - clin'd ; The Storms of Passion, and the Pangs of Pride, Here cease to war, or into Calms subside; To Nature's Voice conspiring, all agree, And tune the ' Soul to Love and Harmony. Here oft t' enjoy the Breeze at Close of Eve, A happy Pair the distant Village leave ; With gentle Steps they trace each lonely Walk, Unseen, unheard, t'indulge their secret Talk; While to the blushing Maid, th' enamour'd Youth Renews his Vows of Constancy and Truth ; His honest Heart, impatient of Delay, Implores her now to fix the happy Day That all his vow'd Affection will repay; } And tho' denying, yet her Eyes proclaim, Her ardent With to meet his mutual Flame : In such delights as these, such pleasing Tales, The Time they spend ' till Evening- shade prevails: And now her pale- fac'd Majesty of Night, O'er Heav'n's clear Azure sheds her Silver Light, See through the thick'ning Shades, how yonder Streams Reflect the Glory of her borrow'd Beams ; All Nature's hush'd, and o'er th' extended Plains One universal solemn Silence reigns. At this dread Hour, with Wonder and Delight The rev'rend Sage explores yon Fields of Light, Pleas'd in the wide Survey, his raptur'd Soul Now wings its Way, and flies from Pole to Pole ; What heav'nly Transports roll within his Breast, Forgetting Earth he is an Angel's Guest; On Contemplation's towr'ing Wing he soars, And wrapt in Thought he trembles and adores : Oft thro' these gloomy Shades he loves to stray, To meditate on that tremendous Day, When Nature's Glories, this terrestrial Ball, By sulph'rous Flames shall to Destruction fall. O may I oft' indulge that aweful Theme, Nor treat it like a visionary Dream ; Subdue my Passions, every Vice controul, And fit for Glory my immortal Soul. H D. and Weekly Gazette. S.

And hopes that such Ladies and Gentlemen who have Commissions from Ireland, will be kind enough, to stay ' till her Arrival before they buy, is she has laid in a particular Stock for that Purpose. COLDS caught at this Season, lay the Foundation for the worst Disorders. The following Medicine cures them, and prevents the Danger, often by a single Dole. 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. The Author of the Pamphlet on the Virtues of Honey, has found its fragrant Balsam maybe se- parated from the grosser Parts ; and is then a most perfect Dissolvent for all the other Balsams. The Greeks knew this, and he has endeavoured to re- store the Practice. This Medicine will be a lad- ing Proof of its Utility: A Tea- spoonful contains the Virtue of two Ounces of Honey, and never disa- grees with any Constitution; it converts a Glass of Water into the Nature and Quality of Asses Milk, with t is balsamic Addition; it takes off the Hectic which attends a Consumption, recruits the Strength, allays the Cough, and heals and preserves the Lungs. If it be in the Power of Medicine to flop the Ravage of that cruel Disease which cuts off such Numbers of our Youth, this Balsam will effect it. It is sold by Mr. Leake, Bookseller, in BATH ; Mr. Baldwin, and Mr. Jackson, in London ; and Mr. Brown, in Bristol In Bottles of 3s. each, sealed and signed by the Author. Where may be had, 1. VALERIAN, GenuineTincture of the TRUE ROOT It is excellent beyond Parallel in all Nervous Disorders, Lowness of Spirits, Head- aches, Tremblings, vain Fears, and Wanderings of the Mind ; in Convulsions, 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. 3. For the Gout and Rheumatism, ELIXIR of BARDANA.— The Numbers who have found Relief from this Medi cine prove that it has at least 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 be effected by this Medicine. And this is as much as a considerate Person would de- lire : 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 aid 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.

FOY, Surgeon- Dentist, Who attended last Season in this City, and per- form'd every Operation on the Teeth and Gums with surprising Success and universal Applause ; begs Leave to acquaint the Nobility, Gentry, & c. that he is now at Mr. GOODEAR'S, the Brick- House in Cheap- street, opposite the Passage lead- ing to the Church- Yard, BACH. He cleanses the Teeth and Gums of all Scorbutic Humours which always attend them when foul, and brings the Gums to fill up the proper Places and Channels, which the Scurvy eats away, bringing them again into their proper Frame of Nature, and causes a sweet and pleasant Breath immediately after the Operation He makes the Teeth as beautiful and white as the whitest Ivory : He also fallens those that are loose, which the Unskilful commonly draw out; and displaces painful rotten Stumps of Teeth, or such as are broke in the Gums, and are not in the least perceivable, in a Method preferable to that of any Man in the Kingdom without fastening any Kind of Instrument, as several of the Nobility and Gentry here, and in other Parts of England, have experienced. He makes and fastens Artificial Teeth, from One to a whole Set, which cannot possibly be distinguished from Natural. He attends on the shortest Notice; and desires nothing for his Attendance, if he does not suc- ceed beyond Expectation, even in the Presence of any Physician, without the least Degree of Pain.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX SUNDAY'S AND MONDAY'S POSTS. From the LONDON GAZETTE. Germany. FRANKFORT, OCT. 22. THE Count of Lusace, after having been obliged to raise the Siege of Brunswick by Prince Frederick's forcing the Passage at Oelpher, a- bandoned Wolfenbuttle, and retired to Gandersheim. The Head- Quarters were soon after transferred from Uslar to Eimbeck, and M. Closen retired to Sesen. Preparations are ma- king for the Reception of Marshal Broglio, as the Campaign draws near an End, and the Head- Quarters will be fixed here during the Winter, as we hear. holland. HAGUE, OCT. 27. The French Army upon the lower Rhine continues making Preparations forgoing into Quarters; and nothing has hap- pened on that Side since the Prince of Soubise re- called his Detachments from East- Friesland and the Bishopric of Osnabrugge. From the Weser we are informed, by. Letters of the 19th and 21st, that Prince Ferdinand's Head- Quarters were still at Ohr, and the Corps under the Marquis of Granby at Hildesfeldt, with his advanced Posts near Halle ; the Heredi- tary Prince at Hildesheim; Marshal Broglio at Stadt Oldendorss; Prince Xavier, who had retired from Wolfenbuttle to Gandersheim, has since eva- cuated the latter. The last Letters from Stettin, of the 10th, give some Hopes that the Siege of Colberg would be finally raised ; and tho' the Letters of the 13th are not arrived, thole from Berlin of the 17th mention General Romanzow's having retired fur- ther back, and having withdrawn his heavy Ar- tillery. It does not teem to be decided, wether the Ruffians will retire to Poland, or endeavour to continue the Campaign in Pomerania and the Marches of Brandebourg. The King of Prussia continued at Strehlin, and Marshal Laudohn at Freyburg, the 13th Instant. Ireland. DUBLIN- CASTLE, OCT. 22. This Day the Parliament having met according to Appointment, his Excellency the Lord Lieutenant went in State to the House of Peers; and being seated on the Throne, with the usual Ceremony, his Excellency sent for the Commons, and directed them to chuse a Speaker: And they having unanimously elected the Right Hon. John Ponsonby, Esq. into that Office, he was by them presented, and was ap- proved by his Excellency. And then his Excel- lency made a Speech to both Houses. London. ST. JAMES'S, Oct. 27. The King has been pleased to appoint George Cressener, Esq. his Ma- jesty's Minister to the City of Cologne, to be his Majesty's Minister to the Princes and States of the Circle of Westphalia. [ Thus far the GAZETTE.] Arriv'd the Mails from Holland and Flanders. Germany. MAGDEBOURG, OCT. 20. The Motions in Saxony will probably soon bring on a general Action. The Army of Marshal Butterlin marched 0n the 9th from Reetz to Drambourg. The Swedes evacuated Anclam the 15th Inst. and recrossed the Peine. WESEL, Oct. 23. The Prince de Soubise hath transferred his Head- Quartes from Coesfeld to Borcken. The principal Fortifications of Mep- pen have been demolished. The French are busy in amassing Forage, whence we imagine that they will still keep the Field some Time. On the other Hand, we are allured, that forty Battalions of the Armies of Broglio and Soubise are to return to France. Oct. 14. At the Time when we thought that the French Troops were going into Quarters of Cantonment, they have repassed the Rhine. The Prince de Soubise's Army is marching this Day from Borcken to Dorsten, and a large Train of Cannon is kept ready to follow it. Holland. HAGUE, Oct. 23. Yesterday it was reported that the King of Prussia had marched Part of his Army towards Schweidnitz, and laid Siege to that Fortress, which he was firing against with Vigour, after having taken proper Measures to hinder General Laudohn from relieving it. We are anxious to know whether this News be true. UTRECHT, Oct. 27. When the King of Prussia was informed of the Loss of Schweidnitz, he said, with a Smile, It is a fatal Blow: We must endeavour to remedy it.' He wrote to Gen. Zastrow, whom he had entrusted with the Com- mand of that Fortress, ' You may now fay what Francis I. wrote to his Mother after the Battle of Pavia, We have lost all except our Honour. As I cannot comprehend what hath happened to you, I shall suspend my Judgment ; the Thing is very extraordinary." London, Ocotber 31. It is reported that Lord Bute will be made Lord Privy- Seal, and Lord Egmont be made a Secre- tary of State. Yesterday the People called Quakers waited on his Majesty at St. James's with their Address, and were most graciously received. A Letter from the Hague, dated Oct. 27, fays, " The undoubted Intelligence received from both FRANCE and Spain, of the Treaty concluded on the 25th of August last, between the two Crowns, engrosses the Attention of all our Politicians, and makes, it is said, the principal Object of the De- liberations of the States of Holland, who, if Spain should join France against England, could not refuse the latter the . Succours stipulated by Treaty.— We are assured, that since this News hath been confirmed, a Motion hath been made, to augment the Troops of the Republic with 20,000 Men ; but this Motion was rejected, by those who rejected all others of the fame Ten- dency in the Time of the Princess Governante. It was said, that if the Probability of the War's raging in the four Parts of the World should be as great next Year as at present, it would be soon enough to make this Augmentation in the Month of January or February; and that an Augmen- tation of twenty Men per Company would be sufficient at present." Yesterday in the Evening arrived a Mail from Flanders, with nothing new in the Brussels Ga- zette, except these few Lines at the End of the Supplement, viz. Letters just come to Hand, bring Advice of the taking of Wittemberg, by ' a Detachment of the Army of the Empire.'' A French Gentleman lately taken and landed at Plymouth, scruples not to fay very freely, that ail their Affairs in France are in the most confused Condition ; that the Priests, Soldiers and Magis- trates, are obliged to make use of every Artifice to keep the People in Subjection; and that the only Method they have to sooth them is, by as- suring them of a speedy and well settled Peace. The Leyden Gazette says, in an Article dated from London, Oct. 20, that France has made some new Overtures of Peace to the British Court, under the Mediation of Spain and some other Powers, but does not tell what those Overtures are. All the Letters from Hamburgh represent the War in Holstein as on the very Point of break- ing out. [ 15.] The French Deserters who repair in Shoals to Hamburgh and Altena complain not so much of Want of Provisions, as of the Introduction of German Discipline into the Army, in Consequence of which they are whipped for the smallest Fault. A private Letter from Embden, dated Oct. 16, after relating some of the Excesses committed by the French in their late Expedition into that Coun- try, concludes thus: " You cannot imagine with what Tyranny and Barbarity they behaved. Some Peasants that fell into their Hands had their Bowels taken out, and then were blown up with Gun- powder. They cut off Women Breasts, salted them, and then made them eat them. Some Men they mutilated, peppered and fryed what they had cut off, and made them eat the same. The Con- tributions they have raised are exorbitant. Emb- den has paid 60,000 Ducats, Lier and Weender 30,000 each, Jemgum, Norden, and Essens 2o, 0oo each ; some Villages have paid 2000, others 1200, 600, and 400 ; so that this Country, which had not felt the Ravages of War these four Years past, is now stripped bare and naked, and will hardly recover from this Blow these 40 Years. All the Letters from Hamburgh represent the War in Holstein as on the very Point of break- ing out; but Things 011 that Side have been so often in Appearance at a Crisis, and a certain Power has t0 frequently made Declarations that seemed preparatory to immediate Action, that those who are best Judges of the System of the North, are not inclined to think Matters will pro- ceed this Year much farther than they did the last. At Petersburgh it is said, there is a new and very unlooked- for Junction of Parties. The War is to be vigorously carried 0n, but the Ob- ject of it is in some Degree changed. In a Word, for the future the Operations will be conducted entirely according to the Ideas of the grand Duke ; and the new Plan being settled, Orders have been transmitted to Field Marshal Butter- lin, to carry it without Delay into Execution, as the Success of it will in a great Measure depend upon his Celerity in that Respect. By Letters from Constantinople, of the 20th of September last, we learn, that there has been a great Alteration of late in the Turkish Ministry._ By the Contrivance of the Grand Vizir, the Mus- tis have been displaced and banished provisionally a Mile from that Metropolis. ' Tis added, that the Plague continued to make great Havoc at A- drianople, but it was entirely ceased at Aleppo. General Wangenheim, who commanded a Body of the Allied Army, died of an Apoplectic Fit the 15th Inst. at Peina, very much regretted. There are private Letters in Town from Ca- diz, Ferrol, and other Parts of Spain, which contradict the Report of an Embargo being laid on the Shipping in those Ports. To the PRINTER, & C. I Have observed that those who are most for- ward in blaming Mr. P, for resigning, have not presumed to disapprove of the Counsel he gave, to demand from Spain immediately a Copy of her Treaty with France. Several Attempts have been made to induce the Public to believe that Spain hath entered into new, Engagements with France : But this hath never been asserted in express Terms. If there be no new Treaty, why did not the Person who drew up the famous Article from Madrid in the Gazette, that fol- lowed Mr. P's Resignation, say so ? And if there is nothing in the new Treaty prejudicial to Eng- land, why is not the Treaty published in Justifi- cation of that Majority which rejected Mr. P's Motion? IMPARTIAL. The MODERN TRAVELLER.

[ Addressed to a FRIEND.] YOU judge quite wrong to think your For- tune hard ; Life's Troubles, not its Blessings, you regard : Believe me, Friend, the Race of Man can know No earthly Comfort unally'd with Woe. Much Plague, no Doubt, attends a sumptuous Wife, She's the lure Torment of her Husband's Life. Yet ev'n from her some Benefits accrue, She brings him Sons, the brings him Daughters too ; When ill, her Care administers Relief, When Fortune frowns the solaces his Grief; When Age or Sickness brings him to his End, She decently inters him, like a Friend.

WILLIAM CARTER, JAMES HEAD. GEORGE CHAMBERRY. Wednesday's and Thursday's POSTS From the LONDON GAZETTE. WESTMINSTER, NOV. 3. HIS Day the Parliament met: His Majesty went to the House of Peers, and being in his Royal Robes seated on the Throne with the usual So- lemnity, Sir Septimus Robinson, Knt. Usher of the Black Rod, was sent with Message to the House of Commons, commanding their Attendance in the House of Peers ; the Commons being come thither, his Majesty signi- fied his Pleasure to them by the Lord High Chan- cellor, that they should return to their House and chuse their Speaker, and present him on Friday next at One O'clock. They returned accordingly and unanimously chose Sir John Cud, Bart. [ Thus far the Gazette.] The Bath Chronicle and Weekly Gazette. Bristol, November 4. [ VOL. II. ] London, November 3. a grand Council at the Last Night there was Cockpit, Whitehall. Sunday there was a great Court at St. James's, and it being a Collar- Day, the Knights of the Garter, Thistle and Bath, appeared at Court in the Collars of their respective Orders. We now hear that their Majesties will go in one Coach to Guildhall, drawn by eight Horses ; as will likewise the red of the Royal Family in Coaches drawn by eight Horses, making in the whole ten Coaches. Sir Samuel Fludyer will be drawn in his State Coach 011 Monday next by six fine Grey Horses. It is said, that besides the Royal Family, there will be near 60 Coaches of the Nobility make their Appearance on Lord Mayor's Day. Three Coaches are gone to Dover, to wait the Arrival of somebody from Calais. We are informed that the Measures hitherto pursued on the Continent will be greatly altered ; and that the utmost Vigour will be used with our Navy, in order to preserve all the Conquests we have obtained, which we are also informed is now the ultimate Resolution of the Government. Fresh Overtures of Peace are said to have been proposed by the Court of France for bringing about a General Peace ; to which End the Duke de Choiseuil, First Minister to the French King, is expected shortly to arrive in England. It is said an additional Number of Forces will soon be sent to Belleisle, to replace the Troops embarked on board Admiral Rodney's Squadron. They write from Hanover, that the Retreat of the French from before Brunswick had cost them upwards of 2000 Men, in Killed, Wounded and Prisoners. All the Letters from Hanover, Brunswick, & c by the last Mail, give us Room to expect the News of an Action between Prince Ferdinand's Army and that of Marshal Broglio. The French continued to have a very numerous Garrison at Gottingen, According to some Letters from Genoa, the Malecontents of Corsica have purchased some French Vessels that had been taken by English Privateers. All the French have been able to do, in their late Expedition under Prince Xavier of Saxony and the Count de Broglio, has been railing a Sum of Money, which has cod them the Lives of two Thousand of their best Men. By the last Letters from Finland we are infor- med, that the contagious Distemper amongst the horned Cattle, which bad for a long Time raged in that Province, was entirely ceased, The Siege of Colberg was raised on the 9th of last Month, and the Prussian. Army, under the Command of General Platen, is become strong enough to cover the Country from the Incursions of the Russians; and when their Forces are once fairly returned into Prussia and Poland, Measures will be taken to change the Face of Affairs in Silesia, and perhaps in Saxony. Orders are sent to our Fleet cruizing off the French Coast, to proceed for Bred, in order to intercept the failing out of that Harbour the French Fleet designed for Martinico. The Winchester Man of War, with two Sloops, are ordered to fail for Senegal and Goree, the first fair Wind. A hot Press is broke out at Plymouth, inso- much that even the Men on board the Transports lying there dare not venture on Shore. It is said that Wool in general is cheaper all over England than has been known for several Years past. The Roads are so bad that the Western Mail did not come in Yesterday till Six O'clock. Yesterday Morning his Majesty reviewed the Dorsetshire Militia in Hyde- Park ; they went thro' their Exercise, Evolutions, and Firings, with a Dexterity which charmed and surprized the numerous Spectators. His Majesty was accom- panied by the Duke of York, Lord Ligonier, and several other Persons of Distinction, and ex- pressed his entire Approbation and Satisfaction. A Plan is said to be on Foot for raising a Sub,- scription by the Merchants of this City, in order to have the Statues of their Majesties erected on the Royal Exchange. The Dutch East- India Company have resolved to send to the East- Indies, on Account of their several Chambers, twenty- eight Ships the ensu- ing Spring. According to some Letters from Hamburgh, very strong Suspicions have arisen in Relation to the Affair of Schweidnitz, grounded chiefly on a Report that three Days after the Place was taken, Gen. Zastrow, the Commandant, married a very rich Lady at Landshut. The Count du Chatelet Lomont is invested by the French King with the Character of his Am- bassador to the Court of Vienna, in which Quality he had his first Audiences of their Imperial Ma- jesties on the 12th ult. During the Performances of Mr. Mathews upon the Wire last Thursday Evening, her Ma- jesty discovered some Signs of Surprize and Fear on which an immediate Order was given to dis- continue them. It is said that the great Cause so long depending between the Hon. James Annesley, and the Earl of Anglesea, both deceased, will be revived next Term, in Behalf of the Son of Mr. Annesley ; who is about five Years old. On Saturday his Majesty's free Pardon came to Newgate for Thomas Daniel, the Box- Maker, ( many Circumstances on the Trial appearing in his Favour,) who was condemned in last Septem- ber Sessions for the Murder of his Wife, by throwing her out of a Window at their Lodgings in Aldersgate- Street.

RUSPINI, Operator for the TEETH, begs Leave to acquaint the Nobility and Gentry, that he is removed from Queen- Square to his House at the Cross- Bath, next Door to the Lanthorn House. He cures the Scurvy in the Gums; first cleans the Teeth from that cor- rosive tartarous gritty Substance, which hinders the Gums from growing, infects the Breath, and is one of the principal Causes of the Scurvy. His Dentifrice, which is free from any corrosive Pre- paration, will restore the Gums to their pristine State, will preserve the Teeth, and render them perfectly white, will fasten those that are loose, and prevent them from further Decay. He fills up with Lead or Gold those that are hollow ( so as to render them useful) and prevents the Air getting into them, which generally aggravates the Pain. He makes and fixes in Artificial Teeth, which cannot possibly be distinguished from na- tural ones, with the greatest Ease and Elegance.

WHOEVER are inclined to become * ~ Adventurers in the PRESENT STATE- LOTTERY, may be supplied with TICKETS By William and Robert Clement, LINEN- DRAPERS, in Wade's- Passage, BATH. In this Lottery ( notwithstanding there are TWO Prizes of TEN THOUSAND POUNDS each, besides Thirty- eight other Capital ones) there are but very little more than FOUR Blanks to a Prize! ( and no Prize of less Value than Twenty Pounds!) each Blank valued at six Pounds, which we buy, as 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 of ei- ther Share, or Chance, any one Person, may be furnished with; the Money arising from them, will be paid by us, as soon as they are drawn ; which we propose selling here, every Day, at the same Price as they are fold by the principal Brokers of Credit and Security, in London. The Price of Chances and Shares, this Day, areas follow; I. s. d. l. A Sixteenth Chance 0 10 0- _ 6 2 5 An Eighth Chance - 1 0 0 By which 1250 A Quarter Chance - 1 19 0 may be 2500 A Half Chance — 3 18 0 gained 5000 A Whole Chance - 7 16 0 10000 A Sixteenth Share 0 16 0 625 An Eighth Share - 1 11 6 By which 1250 A Quarter Share - 3 0 0 may be 2500 A Half Sharp — 6 0 0 gained 5ooo A Whole Ticket variable 1ooo0 The Purchasers of Shares, are entitled to Part of the Prizes, and Blanks-, — the Purchasers of Chances, to the Prizes only. We register Tickets, Shares, and Chances, ( whither bought of ourselves, or of others) at Sixpence each Number, and the earliest Notice of their Success will be sent by the first Post ( from London) to any Part of Great Britain or Ireland. AH Letters, Post paid, or Orders sent by the News- men or others, will be punctually answered, and Schemes of the Lottery given gratis. The Draw- ing of the Lottery will begin on Monday the 16th of November next, at Nine O'clock in the Morning, which is next Monday Week : So there's no Time to be lost. N. B. FOUR Pounds more will be paid by us for every Twenty Pound Prize, in this Lottery, and for all other higher Prizes, to the Purchasers of Chances, than were in any former Lotteries. TEN Pounds were always deducted from the Chances in former Lotteries, by the principal Brokers of Security and Credit in London, and so likewise by us ; But in this Lottery ( in order to oblige the Public ; by removing an old Complaint) we will deduct only Six Pounds, from every whole Chance, and so in Proportion from all the smaller Shares of Chances.
