[ NUMB. IO. ] AND WEEKLY GAZETTE. Friday's and SATURDAY'S POSTS. [ No Foreign Mall.] London, December 10. PRivate Lettters from Holland inform us that Marshal Broglio had put off his journey to Versailles, on receiv- ing repeated Advice that since he be- gan to fend Home Part of his Troops to winter in France, the King of Prussia, in Con- cert with Prince Ferdinand, had formed the Plan of a Winter Expedition, which the latter only waited for the Approbation of England, and a Reinforcement of Troops from that Country, to carry into Execution. The Defence of Colberg will necessarily make a great Figure in History. The Governor Vander Hyde, during tie Bombardment, was solicited by the Burghers to capitulate, before the Place was reduced to a Heap of Rubbish, to which he an- swered, laying his Hand upon his Sword, " Gen- tlemen, till this is either burnt or melted, I will never think of a Capitulation." His Prussian Majesty having lately gained some Advantages over the Austrian Forces, near Schweidnitz, we daily expect to hear of the formal Investiture of that Place. They write from Spain, that the British Mer- chant having made an Application, in respect to the Security of their Effects, in Cafe of a Rupture between the two Crowns, were told on the Part of his Catholic Majesty, that they had no Reason to be alarmed, either by immediate or remote Apprehensions, of any such Event. It is also said, that his Excellency the Earl of Bristol is so much better in his Health, as to desist from the Applica- tions he had made to return Home. A Minister who hath resided long at Madrid writés to his Friend, " It may possibly be, that Spain hath signed a Treaty with the Court of Versailles; but I, shall never believe that it is of such a Nature as to make her take Part in the present War against the English : You will see whether or not I am in the right." It was confidently reported Yesterday, but with what Foundation we know not, that five Spanish Men of War, three of which were of th^ Line, were got into Brest, and that the Spa- niards are beating tip for Volunteers. It is said that the War will be carried on in Germany next Year, with great Vigour. And greater Naval Preparations are now making, than at any Time this War. It is now much doubted, whether either of the Commanders of the Allied Army will come to England this Winter, some Circumstances in Ger- many, it is laid, rendering their Pretence necessary, for the more speedy opening of the next Cam- paign. Notwithstanding all that has been said of the Mortality of the British Troops in Germany, we are allured there are now there full 14, ooo brave Men, well and fit for Service. The Number of our Troops that have fallen in Battle in Germany since the Commencement of the War, who have been carried off by Sickness, and what may be in the Hospitals, is altogether computed at 15,000. The Embarkation for Germany will be made early in the Spring, and it is said will be more numerous than was expected. A large Train of Aillery, Camp Furniture and Tools, we are told, are preparing to be em- bark'd with the Troops that are design'd for Germany ; so that the Arrival of the Commander in Chief of the Allied Army may not be ' till af- ter the next Campaign. His Majesty's Ship Edgar is arrived at Ply- mouth from off Brest ; and brings Advice, that the French Fleet, confuting of eight Sail of the Line and fix Frigates, was lying in Cameret Bay, near Brest, when she left our Fleet. her, all Intercourse with the Family was forbid- den him. He did not, however, cease to pursue the young Lady's Affections, but used every Art to have Access to her, unobserved by the Family, that the Ardency of his Passion could suggest. At every Rendezvous for Summer Amusement, he was ever near her in Disguise, and, in Dublin, found Means to fee her with less Difficulty, ' till he so far gained on her Affections, that she con- trasted herself to him, in the Presence of one Witness only, or, rather, married him; for they each read over the Form of Matrimony, and signed interchangeably Duplicates to witness it; their Design was in Appearance to conceal their Engagement ' till a Time of Reconcilement with her Father should offer, or his Decease leave her at Liberty to avow the Choice she had made. But the young Gentleman's Joy was too full to be confined; he could not conceal it from his more intimate Acquaintance, and the Secret was loon divulged. A Process in the Commons, to dissolve the Contract, was instituted, and finally determined last April, in the Court of Delegates, the dernier Resort in that Kingdom, and the Contrail set aside. From that Time Mr. M'Naton seemed to have been actuated by a Madness, mixed with Despair: He declared, in all Companies, he would yet have her, or die, and leave nothing unattempted to re- porters his Wife ( as he persevered to call her) tho' certain Death should await him. On the 12th Day of November, Mr. Knox, with the young Lady and her Mother, set out in a Coach for Dublin, with only their ordinary At- tendants, and a Cafe of Pistols in the Coach, and a Servant, armed with a Blunderness, near. He had not proceeded far, when Mr. M'Naton, with three others in Arms, appeared, and ordered the Coachman to stop. Mr. Knox, on Mr. M'Naton's coming up to the Coach Window, snapped his Pistol at him, which Mr. M'Naton answered by a Random Fire into the Coach, and killed the young Lady: At the fame Instant Mr. Knox fired his other Pistol, and shot Mr. M'Naton thro' the Bread; who, we hear, is since dead. CHARACTER of a PROUD MAN, By the Author of HUDIBRAS. A Proud Man is a Fool in Fermentation, that swells and boils over like a Porridge- pot He sets out his Feathers like an Owl, to swell and seem bigger than he is. He is troubled with a Tumour and Inflammation of Self- Conceit, that renders every Part stiff and uneasy. He has given himself sympathetic Love- Powder, that works upon him to Dotage, and has transformed him into his own Mistress. He is his own Gallant, and makes most passionate Addresses to his own dear Perfections. He commits Idolatry to him- self, and worships his own Image; though there is no Soul living of his Church but himself, yet he believes as the Church believes, and maintains his Faith with the Obstinacy of a Fanatic. He is his own Favourite, and advances himself not only above his Merit, but all Mankind ; is both Damon and Pythias to his own dear Self, and values his Crony above his Soul. He gives Place to no Man but himself, and that with very great Distance to all others, whom he esteems not wor- thy to approach him. He believes whatsoever he has, receives a Value in being his ; as a Horse in a Nobleman's Stable will bear a greater Price than in a common Market. He is so proud, that he is as hard to be acquainted with himself as with ethers ; for he is very apt to forget who he is, and knows himself only superficially; therefore he treats himself civilly as a Stranger with Cere- mony and Compliment, but admits of no Pri- vacy. He strives to look bigger than himself, as well as others, and is no better than his own Pa- rasite and Flatterer. A little Flood will make a shallow Torrent swell above its Banks, and rage and foam, and yield a roaring Noise, while a deep silent Stream glides quietly on. So a vain glorious insolent proud Man swells with a little rail Prosperity, grows big and loud, and over- flows his Bounds, and when he finks, leaves Mud and Dirt behind him. His Carriage is as glorious and haughty, as if he were advanced upon Men's Shoulders, or tumbled over their Heads like KNIPPERDOLLING. He fancies himself a Co- lette, and so he is, for his Head holds no Propor- tion to his Body, and his Foundation is lesser than his upper Stories. We can naturally take no View of ourselves, unless we look downwards, to teach us how humble Admirers we ought to be of our own Values. The slighter and less solid his Materials are, the more Room they take up, and make him swell the bigger; as Feathers and Cotton will stuff Cushions better than Things of of more close and solid Parts. FIDELIA's Reply to the Gentleman's Litter from Worcester, to a Lady at Tewksbury, in our last. LET a Youth | of this Nation, Of a spotless Reputation, And liberal Education, Devoid of Ostentation, And that hateful odd Fashion Of false Equivocation, ( Which gives Virgins Vexation) Make a lawful Probation, By a wife Application, To know my Inclination, By a full Demonstration Of his noble good Passion. And if he'll make no Contention About my Dowry, or Pension ; If he's true to Religion, And above low Ambition, Then, by Hymen's Permission, I'll change my Condition; Through such a brave Indication, And his charming Persuasion, I'll without Hesitation Make a quick Preparation, To accept his Invitation To become his Relation, By altering my Station, For my own Preservation From future Temptation: And without Recantation, I'll be bound in Obligation, To commit no Devastation, But adorn his Habitation, By a chaste Conversation, In my Day, and Generation, ' Till Death makes a Seperation. R. Particulars of the Life, and melancholy Death of Miss KNOX. Taken from the Examination before a Magistrate. MISS Knox was the only Daughter of Mr. Andrew Knox, of the County of Derry, in Ireland, a Gentleman of large Fortune, and . Member of the last and present Parliament there. Mr. M'Naton, of an antient Family in the Neigh- bourhood, and Fortune not inconsiderable in that Country, conceived a Passion for her that nothing but Death or Possession could satisfy. Tho' his Fortune was net equal to what the Lady might have expected from her own Merit, as well as from her Father's Circumstances, yet Mr. M'Na- ton's Application to have her in Marriage, had probably been well received, but for his incura- ble Attachment to excessive Gaming ; Mr. Knox, other wise, might have been prevailed on to con- sent, as the young Gentleman ( this fatal Passion for Play excepted) was then, tho' very bad since, not only without Objection, but more than ordi- nary agreeable to his Acquaintance, of every Rank and Condition. His Proposal was absolutely rejected; and, on his still continuing to address [ Price TWO- PENCE HALFPENNY.] 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, Worton- 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, Denizes, Corsham, Chippenham, Calne, Marlborough, Dorchester, Blandford, Shaftbury, Pool, Weymouth, Sherborne, & c. & c. at the Post- Offices of most of which Places, Advertisements tor this Paper, and Orders for all Manner of Printing, are taken in; as likewise by the Newsmen.------- No Letters received, unless POST- PAID.—— At the Printing- Office aforesaid may be had, all Sorts of PATENT MEDICINES, & c.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1761. Accounts have been received, that 15 Regiments are actually embarked at Brest. Greater Naval Preparations are making than any this War. We hear that Sir Piercy Brett, with a Squa- dron of Men of War, will fail in a few Days to reinforce Sir Charles Saunders at Gibraltar.- Yesterday Commodore Moore hoisted his Broad Pendant on beard his Majesty's Ship Prince, in the Downs. Transports are taking up for the Govern- ment's Service ; some of which are to be fitted for Horses. Several more Men of War are ordered to Belle- isle, the Bay, & c. Henry Townshend, Esq. is chosen Member of Parliament for Eye in Suffolk, in the Room of Capt. Curnwallis, deceased.— Capt. Barry, for Wycomb, in the Room of the Earl of Shelburn, now a Peer.— Lord Pollington, for Shoreham. in the Room of Sir William Peter Williams, Bart, kill'd at Belleisle— And Thomas Sewell, Esq. for Winchelsea. The Earl of Thomand is re- elected Member of Parliament for Minehead in Somersetshire. Mr. Ramsay is appointed Painter to his Ma- jesty. Yesterday several Lords and Ladies of the first Distinction went to the House of Commons to hear the Debates. Yesterday an additional Duty of 6d. per Gal- lon was laid on all Angle Brandy, and is. on double Brandy, imported. We hear there will be no State Lottery next Last Night undrawn Tickets were sold at Jona- than's Coffee- house for 15 Guineas, and a 20l. Prize at 13l. 9s. Yesterday 75,000 Guineas of his present Ma- jefty's Coin, were delivered at the Mint. The Citizens of Dublin judging it incumbent on the City to give some public Testimony of their Esteem for all distinguished loyal and pa- triot Characters, long used their, utmost Means to procure the Patriot Minister the Freedom of that Metropolis, before they could induce the ruling Part of the City to consent. They waited long impatiently for an Address of Condolance with their Fellow Subjects, upon the Resignation of that most worthy Minister, and of Thanks to him for the happy Fruits of his Administration. Judg- it dishonourable to let such an interesting Event pass over in Silence, an Advertisement was pub- lished to invite the Citizens to consider of such an Address, accordingly one was agreed upon, and signed by several hundred Merchants, Traders, and other Citizens. Mr. Robert Shedwick, the Cobler of St. James's- Street, who went down to the City of Durham to vote for Major Gowland, died there after a few Days Illness. His Pall was supported by six Noblemen and Gentlemen.--- The Contest at this Election is so warm, and Votes so valua- ble, that a Foot Soldier was this Week sent for from Plymouth, to give his Vote there. It was this Day reported, that two Russian Men of War having run foul of each other, the second Day after refreshing their Fleet at Dant- zick, owing to a very thick Fog which arose in the Night, they both received so much Damage, that they sunk, and it is said every Soul on board perished. Tuesday Evening the Flying Highwayman was pursued, for near five Miles, on Honslow Heath, by two Gentlemen and their Servants ; but he out- rid them all, and escaped.— The Reason of his being called the Flying Highwayman, is ow- ing to the Swiftness and Agility of his Horse, which leaps over all the Turnpikes. The 30th Instant is fixed for a Trial of Skill between the original Carrot's two Sons, George Banester and Joseph Banester, for 25 Pounds a Side, against William Stevens the Nailer, and Charles Stevens his Brother, who are to fight in Duke's- Square, near Tothil- fields, Westminster. Year. 38 HUSBAND. TAKE unto thyself a Wise, and obey the Ordinance of God; take unto thyself a Wife, and become a faithful Member of Society. But examine with Care, and fix not suddenly ; on thy present Choice depends thy future Hap- piness. If much of her Time is destroyed in Dress and Adornments; if she is enamour'd with her own Beauty, and delighteth with her own Praise ; if she laugheth much, and talketh loud; if her Foot abideth not in her Father's House, and her Eyes with Boldness rove on the Faces of Men ; though her Beauty were as the Sun in the Firma- ment of Heaven, turn thy Face from her Charms, turn thy Feet from her Paths, and suffer not thy Soul to- be ensnared by the Allurements of Ima- gination. But when thou findest Sensibility of Heart, join'd with Softness of Manners; an accomplished Mind, with a Form agreeable to thy Fancy ; take her Home to thy House, she is worthy to be thy Friend, thy Companion in Life, the Wife of thy Bosom. O che ri s h her as a Blessing sent thee from Hea- ven ; let the Kindness of thy Behaviour endear thee to her Heart. She is the Mistress of thy House; treat her therefore with Respect, that thy Servants may obey her. Oppose not her Inclination without Cause ; she is the Partner of thy Cares, make her also the Companion of thy Pleasures. Reprove her Faults with Gentleness, exact not her Obedience with Rigour. Trust thy Secrets in her Bread, her Counsels are sincere, thou shalt not be deceived. Be faithful to her Bed; for she is the Mother of thy Children. When Pain and Sickness assault her let thy Tenderness sooth her Affliction; a Look from thee of Pity and Love, shall alleviate her Grief, or mitigate her Pain ; and be of more Avail than ten Physicians. Consider the Tenderness of her Sex, the Deli- cacy of her Frame; and be not severe to her Weakness, but remember thine own Imperfections. The FOND NYMPH. KIND Disturber of my Rest ! Closer, closer, still he prest ; In these Arms, my lovely Boy, Give me, give me farther Joy. Why would'st hasten thus away, Prithee, prithee, longer stay ; Why so willing to be gone, Why would'st leave me here alone ? Phoebus doth not yet arise, But in Thetis' Arms still lies ; Why should'st thou less tender prove To my Passion, to my Love ? Time admits of no Delay, Let's enjoy it while me may.

FOY, Surgeon- Dentist, WHO attended last Season in this City, and perform'd every Operation on the Teeth and Gums, with surprizing Success and universal Applause, begs Leave to acquaint the Nobility, Gentry, & c. that he is now at Mr. BRETT'S, op- polite the late Mrs. Emblyn's Boarding- School in St. James's- Street. && 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 fastens those that are loose, which the Unskilful commonly draw out; and dissipates 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 of any Man in the Kingdom, without fastening any Kind of Instrument, as several of the Nobi- lity and Gentry here, and in other Parts of Eng- land, 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. His Dentifrice for the Teeth, and Opiates for the Gums, with proper Tooth- Brushes, and Di- rections, are to be had only at his Lodging, as above. *** Mr. FOY returns to his House near the Red- Lodge, Bristol, every Saturday; where he gives his Attendance ' till the Monday following, and then comes to Bath. BATH. This is to acquaint the Curious, That there is come to this City, at the GEORGE- INN, near the CROSS- BATH, A WONDERFUL MAN ; A Wonderful Man indeed ! That is born with a Double Voice as soon as one Voice speaks, the other answers in the some Breath. He pleases the Curious, and astonishes the Wife. His Performances are next to Impos- sibilities, and the Satisfaction they give universal. The ROYAL FAMILY, Royal Society, and se- veral of the Nobility, have honoured, him with their Company. He has likewise been heard before learned Di- vines and eminent Physicians; and has been al- lowed by all to be a Miracle. The Price is One Shilling for each Person.-- He will wait on Ladies or Gentlemen at their own Houses or Lodgings, if desir'd. N. B. This is the Person who had the Honour to perform at Marvel- Hall, by Vauxhall, before . the Royal Family, twice in one Week ; and had likewise the Honour to be sent for to Court. All that in Miracles rejoice, Come and hear this Change of Voice, And to this little Fairy haste, Who will not fail to please your Taste. DR. ROBERT WALKER'S Patent Genuine JESUITS DROPS, or ELIXIR of HEALTH and LONG LIFE. ( In Bot- tles only of 2s. 6d. and 5s.) ----- The great Success and Demand that is daily made for my never- failing genuine JESVITS DROPS, which are the most certain, cheap, pleasant, safe, effectual and im- mediate Cure, ever discover'd for Gleets tend Seminal Weaknesses, tho' ever so obstinate, of ever so long standing, and by whatever Means occasion'd, and also for the Venereal Disease, from its slightest to its most malignant Symptoms, has occasion d some Persons to endeavour to imitate the same, and public Medicines pretending to some of the like Virtues. His Majesty that I should reap the sole Advantage of my said va- luable Invention, and that the Public should receive the Benefit of the same genuine, was most graciously pleas'd on the 29th of November, 1755, to grant me his Royal Letters Patent, for England and the Planta- tions in America: And, on repeated Representations of the great and surprising Cures daily perform'd by my said JesuitsDrops, has been since also graciously pleased, that his Subjects in his Kingdoms of Scotland and Ire- and should also have the said Medicine genuine, and for preventing them from being imposed upon with spu- rious Medicines, falsely pretending to the same Virtues, to the Prejudice of their Healths and Constitutions, as well as endangering their Lives, to grant me his Royal Letters Patent for those Kingdoms. My said Patent genuine Jesuits Drops have no Mercurials in their Composition, and neither purge or vomit, but carry the Disorders clean off by Urine ( the Dose only 15 Drops in Wine, Water, or on Sugar) and is an excellent Remedy for Travellers, and Persons going to Sea, as to be taken so secret, that even a Bed- fellow cannot make Discovery, and at any Time, in any Season or Climate, ( keeping their full Virtues ten Tears) without Alteration in Diet, and eradicates Root and Branch all the poisonous Symptoms of those loathsome Distempers, and absolutely answer all the Ends that can be expected by Salivation, and were never known to miss of curing after Salivation had fail'd. *** I am to be consulted gratis at my Warehouse and Persons of either Sex may, on personal Application, depend on the strictest Honour and Secresy, and re- ceiving a certain Cure, with a mild Medicine, with- out their Constitutions being torn to Pieces with rough Mercurials.

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 Dose. Peroral Balsam of Honey, A new- discovered Remedy for Coughs and Corsump- Hons, 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 may be se- parated from the grosser Parts; and is then a molt 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 last- 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 this 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 slop 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, 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 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 these 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 ail affirm it, and the Cures daily now performed by the Essence prove their Truth. It not only Hears the Skin of Eruptions, but mends the whole Constitution.

Sunday ' s and Monday ' s POSTS. From the LONDON GAZETTE. Germany . HAMBURGH, Dec. 4. THE Advices we had received from Pomerauin, of General Romanzow's Retreat, are now contradicted; and we are assured, that the Russians made themselves Masters, on the 5th past, of a small Fort called Munde, situated at a Quarter of a German Mile from Colberg, at the Entrance, of the River Persante, the Lose of which cuts off all Communication by Water be- tween Stettin and Colberg. The Prince of Wurtemberg has passed the River Rega, and has repulsed a Russian Corps commanded by Gen. Berek as far as Lepin. From Berlin we learn, that the Inhabitants have been under very great Apprehensions at the Ap- pearance of an Austrian Corps under General Lasci, at about seven German Miles from that Capital ; but Prince Henry having detached Ge- neral Bandemer in Pursuit of the Enemy, it was hoped' they would again pass the Elbe. The King of Prussia was still; the 27th of last Month, at Strehlen. COLOGNE, Dec. 4. This Day the Elector of Cologn honoured Count Blankenheim with a Visit, and dined there. His Electoral Highness was re- ceived, by the Commandant and Garrison of this Town, with all the Ceremonies and Honours that are doe to an Elector of the Empire. Much about the same Time arrived here the Prince of Soubise from Dusseldorf, who also dined at Count Blanken- heim's After Dinner the Elector returned to Bon ; and the Prince of Soubise continued his Jour- ney to Versailles. LIEGE, Dec. 6. The Prince of Soubise arrived her incognito this Morning . He alighted at Count d'Andlau's, the French Commandant in this City, where he breakfasted, and then set out for Versailles.

Prince Ferdinand hath had a Return of his Fever, which hath obliged him to keep his Chamber for ten or twelve Days at his Head- Quarters at Eimbeck; but at present he is pretty well: recovered. He waits only for the Dislocation of Marshal Broglio's Army, to put his Troops into Winter- Quarters. France. PARIS, Nov. 30. The French Squadron being completely victualled, by the Arrival of five Spa- nish Ships with Provisions, will soon put to Sea in three Divisions. The first will consist of the Ships the Due de Burgoyne, the Defenseur, and the Zephir. The Viscount de Belsunce is on board the first of thosé Ships, and the Regiment of Feix on board the others. The Hector ( on board of which is the Chevalier de St. Croix, who defended Belleisle) with the Prothee, the Diligentes, and the Opalle, form the second Division, 0n board of which the Regiment of Quercy is embarked. The Regiment of Boulonnois is on board the Diademe, the Dragon, the Brillant, and the Ca- lypso, which compose the third- Division. The Count de la Tour d' Auvergne, Brigadier Gene- ral, is on board the Diadene. They write from Dijon, that on the 12th of November, about Five in the Mowing, a Cloud was formed round the Moon of about 50 Feet in Circumference, from whence. issued such a large Body of brisk Fire; that most of the Spectators, unable to stand the Glare of it, fell down with their Faces to the Ground. This Phenomen on lasted some Minutes, It was followed by a Noise like that of several Battering Cannon discharged at once. And the Commotion of the Air w « s so great, that the Doors and Windows of all the Houses trembled. Holland. HAGUE, Dec. 8. There are no fresh Accounts from Pomerania, or Silesia, or Saxony, The Armies in Westphalia are preparing to go into their Winter- Quarters. However, some think that these Disposions are only a Feint. Mean While the French Tents are so much worn, that they will not hold together to be put up for a Fortnight longer. The French heavy Cannon is to be lent to Francfort. Some Accounts say, that Marshal Broglio will stay in Germany during the Winter. The Marquis of Granby and Lord George Le- nox are hourly expected from the Allied . Army, in their Way to England. During the Marquis's Absence, the Command of the British Troops de- volves on General Conway, whose Lady, who has resided here several Months, is just set out to at- tend him. Arriv'd the Mails from HOLLAND and FLANDERS. Denmark. COPENHAGEN, Dec. 1. The Court heard, with great Indignation, that one of our Merchant Ships, homeward- bound from Smyrna, under the Convoy of the Moen Frigate, had, in Violation of the Treaty of 1670, between Denmark and Eng land, been detained in the Mediterranean by an English Man of War, under Pretence that she had Goods on board for the Account of French Merchants at Marsailles. The Captain, of the London, December 12. Thursday an Express arrived at the Admiralty, with an Account, that the Brest Squadron, con- fisting of eight Ships of the Line and four Fri- gates, had got out of Brest, and were lying at Anchor in Conquet Road, under the Protection of their Fort, which is of thirty- six Guns, forty- two Pounders, and that they were closely watched by ten Ships and two Frigates of our Squadron, under the Command of Commodore Keppel. This Fort lies, on the North Side of the Entrance into Brest Harbour, where are several other strong Forts thereabouts. Some Letters from Barcelona, dated the 22d of November, from Merchants of Reputation, as- sure, that the Reports about a Spanish War are without Foundation, there being no more Prepa- rations making, than usual in Time of the profoun- dest Peace, in the Province of Catalonia; and that the Spaniards of all Ranks there wish to pre- serve a good Harmony and Understanding with the English Nation. It is said a Sloop has been dispatched to the West- Indies express, on Affairs of the greatest Importance. Amidst the mighty Threats of Vengeance de- nounced against this Kingdom, at present, by the French, and the vast Preparations making ( as they say) for invading us; it cannot but give 39 every Englishman Pleasure to know the Answer returned by a great Patriot, to a certain foreign Minister on an Inuendo that if the Terms pro- posed, were not accepted, they would be enforced by twenty thousand Men ? I hope ( said the' Pa- triot) you will not send us so large a Number, for as our own Poor already are heavy upon our Hands, and yours have been a very great additi- onal Burthen ; 20,000 Prisoners more, would ab- solutely lay us under a Necessity of erecting some new Manufactory for their Support, unless hit most Christian Majesty should think proper to fend Money enough along with them, to bear their Expence6swhile in England. Yesterday an Account arrived by the New- York Mail, that his Majesty's Ship Alcide, with the Transports and Trade under Convoy, were safe arrived there, and were to sail from thence for the West- Indies with the Troops, in ten Days from the 27th of October. The last Letters from Silesia advise, that the greatest Part of the Troops of both Armies had been put into Quarters of Cantonment, and that the King of Prussia was daily expected at Breslau ; but Advices from Saxony still insinuate, that Mar- shal Daun is meditating some signal Blow; and that his Prussian Majesty will probably leave Si- lesia, to come and put himself at the Head of Prince Henry's Army. A Report prevailed at Hamburgh when the last Letters came away, that Letters had been received from Petersburgh, advising that the Czarina had fallen ill; and that, besides an Attack of her usual Disorder, the had been seized with a Defluxion on her Breast, by which her Life was in great Danger: But as, the Reports that were lately spread of her Death proved false, this will per- haps be found to deserve no more Credit than they did. The French Party at the Hague assert with their usual Effrontry, that all the Declarations of Spain's earnest Define to cultivate a good Under- standing with England, with which the English News- papers are daily stuffed, are without Foun- dation, and calculated merely to facilitate the raising of the Supplies, by preventing Foreigners from being discouraged from placing their Money in the English Funds. According to Letters by the last Ships from the Indies, it seems to be not at all impossible that the Prince who lately demanded the Protection of the British Company may be hereafter seated' on the Throne of the Moguls. The Vizir who assas- sinated his Master the late Emperor Allumpeer is sled into a distant Province with the young Prince of the Race of Timur, whom he proclaimed by the Shah Jehan, as the Defeat of the Marrtatas took from him all Hopes of Safety. The Patans finding Disturbances arising in own Coun- try, have dropped the Design of ing their own King's Son upon the Throne, and it is believed they either have proclaimed, or will proclaim, Shah Zadda, Uncle to that young Prince, Empe- ror of Indostan at Delly. The House of Commons in Ireland, on the 26th past, unanimously resolved, That no Person should be protected by any Member of that House who was not a menial domestic Servant of such Member, receiving Wages : And all written Pro- tection. which were already, or might thereafter be granted by any Member, were at the same Time declared to be null and void. Lord, George Cavendish is re- elected Knight of the Shire for the County of Derby.

Five Regiments of Foot are daily expected in England from Belleisle. Five Regiments of Foot wilt still be left at that Place, with 100 Light Horse, and 150 Men of the Train of Artillery. A few Days ago failed for the West- Indies, Mr. Harrison, Jun, of Red- Lion- Street, Holbourn, with some Mathematical Machines, invented and made by his Father and him, towards the dis- covering the Longitude at Sea. Four Prisoners were capitally convicted at the Old- Bailey, viz. Daniel Looney, for shooting Capt. Shank with a Gun ; Robert Greenstreet, for the Murder of his Master, Mr. Souch, in Crooked- Lane ; Mary Morris, for stealing a Quantity of Lutestring Silk out of a Shop ; and Thomas Ash- ton, the Dragoon, who guarded the Bristol Mail, for robbing the Bath Stage Waggoner, at But- chers- Grove, near Hounslow- heath, of upwards of Fifty Shillings. An ODE to LYCIDAS. WHY, LYCIDAS, should Man be vain, If bounteous Heay'n hath made him great ? Why look with insolent Disdain On those undeck'd with Wealth and State ? Ca n s pl e ndid Robes , or Beds of Down, Or costly Genis to deck the Hair, Can all the Glories of a Crown Give Health, or Smooth the Brow of Care ? The scepter'd Prince, the burthen'd Slave, The Humble and the Haughty die ; The Poor, the Rich, the Base, the Brave, In Dust without Distinction lie. Go, search the Tombs where Monarchs rest, Who once the richest Glories wore ; Fled is the Grandeur they possest, And all their Greatness is no mere. L. R.

BURROUGH'S, Grocer and Tea- Man, in Threadneedle- Street And to prevent Counterseits, each Pound will have a Stamp affix'd to it. THE great Superiority of this CHOCOLATE, to all other, will appear on Trial to any one, by its immediate Dissolving, full Flavour, Smoothness on the Palate, and intimate Union with Liquids; and as it is much finer than any other Sort, so it will go further, and is of greater Nutriment, and of easier Digestion to weak Sto machs ; being by this Engine made perfectly clean and free from the usual Coarseness, Grit and Sediment, so much disliked in other Chocolate. Those Shopkeepers and others who don't choose to go to the Price of the finest Sort, may be supplied at their WARE- HOUSE in Bristol, with very good Chocolate ( far superior to what is usually sold) at the London Prices, but without the Stamp. Allowance will be made to those who fell again. Wednesday's and Thursday's POSTS. From the LONDON GAZETTE. Germany. WESEL, Dec. 7.

AS Mortals languish, when the Rays of Light By envious Clouds are hid from human Sight, So when inclement Heav'n had cast a Shade On CÆLIA'S Charms and Graces, lovely Maid I A sudden Anguish seiz'd each generous Breast, And in her Wound a double Part tonfest. No more with Gaiety the Dance goes round, No more we mind attractive Musick's Sound. But when the Gods, in Pity to our Pain, Sent her again to cheer the youthful Train, Our former Strength and Sprightliness return, Our Souls transported with new Raptures burn. May then, ye Deities that guard the Fair, This beauteous Nymph be your peculiar Carel Let no intruding Fears her Mind molest, Let no Disorder break her pleating Rest ! And when she's wafted to your nobler Sphere, Grant her forever to be happy there With Angels, whom in Charms she equal'd here. [ VOL. II. ]
