THURSDAY, APRIL 1, 1762. Reflections on the Vanity of human Pursuits. AMore proper Emblem cannot be found to convey a just Idea of the Vanity of human Pursuits, than a Child building Card- Houses. How often are the Efforts of the Ambitious, the Researches of the Learned, and the Toils of the Covetous and Self- interested, baffled by an unex- peted Turn of Fortune, just as the Child's Card Pile of Building is liable to be subverted by a Stir or a Puff of Breath. This Truth is confirmed by the Example of all past Ages ; and many recent Events shew that Fortune is equally capricious, and human Great- Friday's and Saturday's POSTS. From the London Gazette, March 23. London. WHITEHALL, March 23. HE King has been pleased to present Charles Weston, M. A. to the Rec- tory of Therfield, in Hertfordshire, void by the Translation of Philip, late Bishop of Bristol, to the See of Norwich. ADMIRALTY- OFFICE, March 23. His Ma- jesty's Ship the Adventure, commanded by Cap- ness equally precarious in the present Age Whan Alexander, whose Fame had no other Limits but those of the then known World, wept that he had no other left to conquer, must he nor, in the Eyes of a Philosopher, appear as little as the Child building a Card- House ? The greatest and most expensive Monuments of Grandeur which the World ever produced, the Pyramids of Egypt, those stupendous Build- ings which Travellers from every Quarter of the World crowd to see, may justly be considered as equal Proofs of the Vanity of all sublunary Things, since they were destined only to receive the Bodies of the deceased Egyptian Monarchs. It is fustly observed by Juvenal, that Death fully shews the Vanity of all human Greatness, as Alexander, who thought the whole World too little for him, was, upon entering Babylon, ea- sily contained in a Coffin. When we reflect upon the ambitious Views of a Charles the XIIth of Sweden, and consider in what Manner they were checked, must we not acknowledge the Vanity of Ambition, and the Instability of human Affairs ? So extraordinary a Change in the Fortune of the Swedish Mo- narch, cannot but convince us, that the vision- ary Projects he had formed, no more deserved the Name of great or noble, than the Child's At- tempt to heap all the Cards upon each other. The Fall of Dionysius was not more remarka- ble ; though, from tyrannizing over the Sici- lians, who trembled at his very Name, he was at last reduced to teach School at Corinth. Such, indeed, is the Vanity of all human En- terprizes, that there does not seem to be any Thing singular in the Temper of Democritus, who could never walk the Streets without laughing at the Hurry and Bustle of those that with equal Rapidity ran to and fro, some to undo and some to be undone. Democritus was indeed upon this Account looked upon as a Madman ; but when the People of Athens, prepossessed with that Opi- nion, sent Hippocrates to him, the learned Phy- sician declared, that the Man whom they had re- presented to him as out of his Senses, had proved to a Demonstration that they were all Madmen themselves. Certain it is that every wise Man will make it his Endeavour to laugh at the Vices and Follies of Mankind ; since he that considers them in a serious Point of View, must unavoidably indulge more uneasy Passions. In fine, every human Pursuit may be considered as building Castles in the Air, or Houses of Cards ; for, as the Poet justly observes, concerning the Life of Man, Both from the Coffin to the Cradle, " Tis all a With and all a Ladle. The LOVER'S LEGACY. UNHAPPY STREPHON, dead and cold, His Heart was from his Bosom rent, Embalm'd, and in a Box of Gold, To his beloved KITTY sent. Some Ladies might, perhaps, have fainted, But KITTY smil'd upon the- Bauble ; A Pin- Cushion, says she, I wanted : Go— put it on my Dressing- Table. tain Charles Middleton, on the 18th Instant, took, the Sequier, a French Privateer Snow, of 12 Carriage Guns, 10 Swivels, and 99 Men : She is a new Vessel, sailed from Dunkirk last Monday se'nnight on her first Cruize, and had not taken any Thing. Copy of a Letter from Capt. Harrisin, of his Ma- jesty's Ship the Venus, to Mr. Clevland, dated at Plymouth, March 19, 1762. " I arrived in Plymouth Sound this Day, ha- ving on the 6th Inst. at Day- light fallen in with an English Ship, who had a Signal of Distress out, Name unknown, without a living Creature on board. She was laden with Provisions, Bales, & c. and believe was under Convoy of the Alarm, but blowing very hard could not send on board. She had nine Feet Water in the Hold ; but, on ordering her Pumps to be tried, I found we gained on her fast, and by Noon she was quite clear. " I sent a petty Officer and a proper Number of Men on board her, and a few Days after strict Search, found her Leak and stope it. At One the same Day, I discovered a Sail, who I soon found to be an Enemy, and after four Hours Chace I came up with her, when she struck : Proved to be the Amabile Marea from Bourdeaux, bound to St. Domingo, who sailed from thence the 28th of February, in Company with seven other Ships, all bound to the West- Indies. " In the Evening of the same Day I disco- vered another English Ship with a Signal of Dis- tress hoisted, found her also abandoned. She had eight Feet Water in her Hold, which I soon cleared, and found she made very little after. She was laden with the same Cargo as the other, and believe bound to Jamaica has been a fine Ship of 30 Guns. I wish there may not be some Trick in the intended Loss of these Ships, or at lead the latter, as she did not seem well found for a West- India Voyage. " On the 17th was chased by a Brig, who I soon found to be a Privateer, as she lay to look at me, about four Miles Distance, and after a Chace of 26 Hours, in which I run 60 Leagues, her Main- Top- Mast going over the Side, I came up with her. She proved to he the Amabile Jo- sepha, a Spanish Privateer belonging to St. Se- bastian, of 14 Guns and 103 Men, being the first Privateer that has been out of Spain : She sailed from the Groyne the 12th Instant."

France. PARIS, March 15. It is reported that the Plan of the next Campaign is quite altered ; that our Troops are going to abandon Hesse, to deliver up to the Austrians Gottingen, Cassel, and some other Places, in order to go to the Lower Rhine ; from whence the Operations arc to be Carried on, according to the Circumstances of Affairs, against Munster, Lipstadt, Paderborn, & c. which the Marshal d'Estrees and de Soubise are to benege. Twelve Thousand Men are marching from Flan- ders towards the Lower Rhine. TOULON, Feb. 27. The following is a List of the Ships fitting out in this Port.----- The Pro- tecteur, of 74 Guns, M. de Bompart, Commo- dore ; Couronne, and Altier, 74 ; Fantasque, Lion , Content, Triton, and St. Francis de Pause, 64 ; Sagittaue, and Hippopotame, 50 ; Chimere, 26 ; and Gracieuse, 24.— We have besides those Ships, the Virgin of the Rosary, and the Notre- Dame de Sante, both of 64, and the Fier of 50 Guns ; but the Court has not ordered them t0 be equipped ; probably because they are not to go out upon the same Expedition. M. Beaussier de Chateauverd is going to Cadiz, to get the Floris- sant careened and armed : ' Tis the same Ship that M. de Morville left there some Time ago, on his Return from the Indies, in such a Condition as did not admit of his keeping the Sea longer. MARTINICO is situate in 61 Degrees W. Lon. and between 14 and 15 Degrees N. Lat. 120 m. N. W. of Barbadoes ; being 60 Miles long, but scarce 20 broad in any Place. The Inland Part is mountainous, from whence fall numerous Rivulers into the Sea ; and there are several and commodious Harbours on the Coast, so well fortified, that the English were not able to reduce any of them, when they made a Descent at the Island in the late Wars. The Island produces Sugar, Cotton, Ginger, Indigo, Cacao, Aloes, Pi- mento, Cocos, Plantains and other tropical Fruits ; and as it is much larger and better peopled than Barba- does, it is new the Chief of all the French Caribbee Islands, and the Seat of their Governor- General. SALMON'S GAZETTEER. Country Intelligence. GLOUCESTER, March 22. We have received the following Account of a Wedding at North- leach in this County : young Girl about 2o Years of Age having sworn a Child upon an old Man of 60, a Warrant was granted for ap- prehending him, and he was taken into Custody ; when it was put to his Choice whether he would go to Gaol or marry the Girl. The poor Fellow, after a long Deliberation, determined on the lat- ter, and so to Church they went, escorted by the Parish Officers and a numerous Company of At- tendants. The Man went through the several Parts of the Ceremony with tolerable Resignation, and the Girl performed her Part with Propriety enough ' till she came to these Words, Wilt thou have this Man to be thy wedded Husband ? To which she answered, No ! And on being asked a second Time, replied, I won't ! and immediately took to her Heels, and ran out of the Church, to the great Joy of the Bridegroom, and the En- tertainment of the Spectators, EXON, March 19. This Day the Assizes ended at the Castle for the County of Devon, when the following Persons received Sentence of Death viz. Robert Haynes, for the Murder of a Lad Kingsbridge, whose Name is unknown, Pierce Mitchell, for the Murder of Vincant Beven, Pri- soner of War at the Sugar- House Prison near Topsham ; and also William Goddard and John Sackemore, for an Highway Robbery.--- They were removed from Winchester by Habeas Corpus. Last Saturday arrived at Falmouth, the Duke Packet Boat, Edwards, with the Mail from the West- Indies. She sailed from Jamaica the 2d of February, when all Things were quiet ; and the Inhabitants had just received an Account of the Rupture between England and Spain.

Yesterday as His Majesty was going to the House of Peers, he was followed by an innumerable Crowd of People, crying out, " Long live King George the Third, our most Gracious Sovereign, but no Three- penny Half- penny Beer. Confu- sion be to the first Proposers of it, and down with them." A Penalty of fifty Pounds is inflicted by the Act passed Yesterday, upon Victuallers and others mixing and adulterating Strong Beer, which must give great Satisfaction to the Publick, as they may now hope to have a genuine Liquor for the Advance of Price. This being the Birth- Day of his Royal High- ness the Duke of York, who is now entered into the 2th Year of his Age, his Majesty received the Compliments of the Nobility and Gentry on the Occasion, at St. James's ; as did likewise the Princess Dowager of Wales,' at Leicester House.

According t0 Letters from Ratisbon of the 11th Instant, the following Articles of Peace and Re conciliation between, the Russians and Prussians were brought to the Dictator of the Empire on the 8th, viz. 1. The King of Prussia guarantees to the Em peror the Throne of all the Russias. 2.

The French Ambassador at Copenhagen is re Home, leaving only his Secretary there. letters from Italy, of the 4th Instant say, that two Feluccas were then ready at Cagliary, under Sarchman Colours, to be employed as Packet boats to carry Letters from London to Gibraltar. Letters from Amsterdam of the 19th inst, con form our former A counts, that the large City of Carthagena, on the Coast of Terra- Firma, was entirely destroyed by an Earthquake about the Middle of January last. By private Letters from Paris we have an Ac count, that the King has resolved to take into his PAY 20,000 Swiss Troops more for proper De fence of his Kingdom, in Cale of an Invasion. They white from Zerbst of the 7th Instant, that contribution Money of 20,000 Rixdollars, Which was paid by the Inhabiants of that Dutchy to the Prussians was refunded the 6th of Feb. it is confidently asserted, by an Artist lately rived from Naples, that the Generality of Spa- are for much dissatisfied with the present ofthe Government, relative to the Rup between that Crown and ours, that they speak and write more freely than was ever known in any former Reign. A great Advantage, among others, resulting our having taking Martinique, is, three or four Men of vlsri of War of the Line, with a few Fri- gates , will be now sufficient for the Leeward Island Station, We are assured that Admiral Rodney had made such Dispositions, by forming a Line with his Fri- gates, at proper Distances, as to give a Signal to each other, and so prevent any Ships from getting in, that by these Means they took the Acquillon Frigate, which had been dispatched with In- structions for the Governor of Martinico, and an Account of the Brest Fleet failing with Troops, & c. 0n board, to his Assistance. This Day Accoutrements, Drums, & c. were delivered out at the Tower, for three new Regi- ments of Hunters, and some other new Corps.

Montague Bertie, of St. John's College, Cambridge, was instituted to the Vicarage of Rayborne Cheney, in the County of Wilts, and Diocese of Salisbury, on the Pre- sentation of Peregrine Bertie, jun . of Lincoln's- inn- fields, Esq. We hear that on the Arrival of the York Fri gate, Capt. Knell, at Antigua, in 17 Days from Ferrol, an Express was immediately dispatched to Jamaica, to acquaint Governor Littleton with the Rupture with Spain. Letters from Monte Christi by the Tartar, Capt. Road, advise, that the Sugars there are brought up and shipped off, and that there were upwards of 30 Dutch Ships waiting then to load, which it is thought will all be obliged to come away in Ballast. In the Night between Friday and Saturday John Berry died in Newgate, as supposed, by eating Muleles, a Quantity of those Fish being found in a Kettle standing by him, and he lying on his Side, in his Clothes, by them. He was tried at the Old Bailey with M ' Donald, Salmon and Eagan, tor procuring 2 Boys to commit a Robbery Upon Sal. non in the County of Kent, and then prosecu- ting them at Maidstone Assizes, in order to receive the Reward. Last Saturday Night a Fellow put off several Leaves of an old Folio Book for the London Gazette; but being pursued and overtaken in Holborn, by one of his Customers, the Mob assembled and conveyed him to an Horse- Pond and gave him a severe Ducking. It may be no unnecessary Caution to inform the Public, that a great Number of counterfeit Shil- lings are now current, which are generally offered about the Dusk of the Evening, or at Night.

On the Formation of WOMAN. WHEN the all- wife Creator had made Man, he said it was not good for him to be alone, therefore he would make a Help- Mate far him ; so the Almighty caused a deep Sleep to fall on Adam, and he took one of his Ribs, wherewith he made a Woman, and brought her to him: So pleasing was the Sight, that when he saw her, he was to astonish'd at her Beanty, that he could not forbear ( as mil ton says) to express him self in the following Manner: " This Turn hath made Amends, thou hast fulfill'd " Thy Word, Creator bounteous and benign !] " Giver of all Things fair ! but fairest this " Of all thy Gifts." And so delighted was he with her Company and Conversation, that when the brought him the forbidden Fruit, . and he found that the had eaten thereof, after he had expostulated some Time with her, he took it and did eat likewise ; chusing, as it were, rather to be banished out of Paradise, and to die with her, than to lie deprived of her Company. After which he expressed himself in the following Manner : " How shall I behold the Face To be Sold A Messuage or Tenement, call'd the ROYAL- OAK, In STALL- STREET, in the City of Bath.

On a young Lady's SIGHING. THEsweet Inchantress in the Bloom of Life, Unlike Calypso, fears to be a Wife : Yet, like a Lute, she vibrates to her Swain ; They grieve alternate, but He grieves in vain. Assume thy magic Wand, celestial Fair, Guard from his Sighs the undulating Air; Why shou'd your Pity move the tender Sigh, For one you hate for thus presuming high ? For lower Life thy Lover is design'd, Then why shou'd Sympathy disturb thy Mind ? Nor should this Youth, Ixion - like, repine, Since in the Elysian Shades he soon shall shine : Thence, clad in . Aether, to the Heav' ns ascend, Blaze in thy Rays, and brighten without End. A. B. COLDS caught at this Season, lay the Foundation for the worst Disorders. The following Medicine ernes them, and prevents the Danger, often by a jingle Dole. Pectoral Balsam of Honey. A new- discovered Remedy for Coughs and Consump- tions, all Phthisicky Complaints, Asthmas, anil 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 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 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 flap the Ravage of that cruel Disease which cuts off such Numbers of our Youth, this Balsam will effect it. It is fold 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 hat!, 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 Conovulsions, 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 1 0s. 6d. the Smaller 5 s. and 25.6d . 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 he 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 35. the Bottle, with Directions. 3. For the Gout and Rheumatism, ELIXIR of BARDANA.— The Numbers who have found Relies from this Medi- cine prove that it has at leas 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 be this Medicine. And this is as much as a confederate Person would de- sire : In the Rheumatism, it is a certain and absolute Cure; and the Disease never returns. The Dose is a Tea- spoonful in a Wine Glass of Water, Night and Miming. Its Operation is by insensible Perspiration, and slightly by Urine. Price 3s. the Bottle, with Directions. 4. Essential Tincture of GoldenRod, " The most successful Medicine now used for the GRA- VEL and STONE,— Each Bottle containing about 16 Doses; and is an effectual, safe, and pleasant Re- medy in all Degrees of these Complaints,— Price 4s. the Bottle, with Directions.

She , was bound from the Island of Mauritius, laden with Coffee and a little Pepper. March 25.

It becomes every Day more and more certain, that the new Emperor of Russia, changing the - System of the late Empress, is not disposed to fulfil the Engagements con- tracted with that Princess. ALTENA, March 16. While the King our Sovereign is putting his Land Forces on a good Footing, he is at the same Time bellowing his Cares equally on his Marine. It actually consists of twenty- four Ships of the Line and II Frigates. Orders have been given to. equip im- mediately eighteen of the former, and nine of the latter. The Destination of this Squadron is yet a Mystery to the Public, though some Politicians pretend to have penetrated it. France. PARIS, March 15. It is assured, that we shall have upwards of a hundred and forty Thousand good Troops this Year in Germany. The Cam paign there will be opened by the Sieges of Mun- ster and Lipstadt, and the greatest Efforts will be made to possers ourselves again of the County of Hanover. London, March 27. It is now certain, that 1,200,000l. more will be raised for the Service of the present Year, but by what Means is not yet known. It is said that James Oswald, Esq. one of the Lords of the Treasury, is to be appointed Secretary at War, in the Room of the Hon. Charles Townshend, who is to succeed Mr. Titley, at the Court of Denmark, in this critical Conjunc- ture. Others say that Peter Burrell, Esq. will succeed Mr. Townshend. Sir Thomas Cave, Bart, of Stanford- Hall, is. chosen Knight of the Shire for the County of Leicester, in the Room of Mr. Smith, deceased. Thursday last Sir Henry Gough, Bart, was sworn in one of the Gentlemen of the King's Privy Chamber. The Right Hon. Lord Anson is now judged to be entirely out of Danger. When the News came from Martinico it was proposed to omit firing the Cannon in the Park, on Account of Lord Anson's laying so ill at the Admiralty; which his Lordship hearing, bravely, replied, ' Pray let them be fired: So far from ' disturbing me, the Sound of them, upon so joy- ' ful an Occasion, will rather contribute towards ' my Recovery,' We hear that Patents are very near ready, for creating Sir James Lowther and Sir William Courtny, Peers, and Lady Caroline Fox a Peeress own Right. We learn that the King of Portugal hath at length made a definitive Declaration to the Court of Madrid, importing, That his most Faithful Majesty have no Grievances to alledge, either against Spain or Great- Britain, and having no Engagements, offensive Or defensive, with either, of those two Crowns, he was firmly resolved to observe the strictest Impartiality with Respect to the Rupture that hath happened between them ; that consequently, he would permit both English and Spanish Ships to enter his Ports, provided they conform to the Regulations established in all the maritime Places in Europe: But that if, contrary to all Expectation, an Attempt should be made to compel him, by Violence, to depart from this Neutrality, and thus to encroach on his Rights as a Sovereign, he would oppose it with his whole Force, & c. We are credibly informed, the Court of Spain has been given to understand, that it they attack Portugal, a British Fleet will lay the City of Na- ples in Ashes. A Report is received from Germany, that the French are taking a List of all the Men in Hesse that are able to bear Arms, whom they propose to send to France to serve on board the King's Ships. Private Letters from Paris make Mention of a very great Fire, which happened there during the fair of St. Germain's, and, it is said, has done prodigious Damage. According to the last Letters from Vienna, the Change of System in Russia was no longer made a Mystery of, after the Departure of Gen. Czer- nichef, who lest Vienna without taking Leave of any Person belonging to the Court, and went di- rectly to put himself at the Head of his Troops, to carry them back to the Vistula. They write from Vienna of the 6th instant, that they had Advice from Silesia, that the Prussians were in Morion in that Dutchy near Schweidnitz, where some very bloody Skirmishes have happened, in which an Austrian Regiment of Dragoons was almost cut to Pieces. An Edict was published at Kiel on the 4th Inst. by the Regency of the Duchy of Holstein- Gottorp, by which the Convention which was made between the Emperor of Russia and the King of Denmark to deliver up all Deserters. on both Sides, is made void; and Notice was given to the Inhabitants of that Duchy, that the said Cartel being no more in Force, shall cease and be of no Effect Letters from Milan of the 26th ult. say, that the Duke , of Modena, their Governor- General, had given Orders for compleating the Troops in that Dutchy with all possible Expedition. A private Letter from Martinico says, " It is surprising to think that an Island, so very strong in its Fortifications, both by Art and Nature, and so completely furnished with Artillery and Ammunition for its Defence, should be given up in such a dastardly Manner ; that some of the principal Inhabitants had lodged their most pre- cious Effects with the Governor of Fort Royal, as thinking that Place could never be taken ; but when they wanted to have them returned, by the Capitulation, they were not to be found in 1ns Apartments, though none but the French Officers had entered them since his quitting his Post ; from whence it was conjectured, that either the Go- vernor had taken them with him to St. Pierre, a Fort not a tenth Part so strong as Fort Royal, or that they had been smuggled by the Officers he left to defend Fort Royal ; the Affair rests till the Governor surrenders himself, which it is thought he will do in a few Days." The same Letter adds, " That the Island is very fertile, very po- pulous, and many of its Inhabitants' very rich ; and there are vast Quantities of almost ail Sorts of European Commodities vended there." We are informed that the fudden, Surrender of Fort Royal in Martinico was principally owing to an English Grenadier being taken Prisoner, and carried before M. la Touche, who informed the Governor that General Monckton was resolved to form the Place the next Night, and put all to the Sword in cafe they did not surrender before that Time; upon which the Planters who Wire in the Place, vehemently interceded with the Gover- nor to give up the Fort to the English, and ac- cordingly be immediately marched away with all the Grenadiers, leaving the People to do as they judged proper for their awn Safety, 99 A Lette r from Gibraltar fays, " since my I st several French and Spanish Prises are brought in here ; and two Days ago Capt. Harman of the Tartar arrived here with the Declaration of War against Spain, and two Prizes, one French and the other a Spaniard. They write from Wesel of the 13th Inst. that on the preceding Day a Danish Courier passed through that Place from Paris for Copenhagen, with fresh Promîtes by the French Court to gua- ranty Holstein to the Danes, against the Emperor of Russia. Letters by the Marlborough, Marshell, arrived at Bristol from Guadeloupe, say, that Admiral Rodney was preparing to fail from Martinico, with ten Sail of the Line, and several Frigates, and was to be joined at Jamaica by several more Men of War, in order to watch the Motions of a Spanish Fleet they had Intelligence of. On Tuesday last 600 Men were draughted out of the Royal Hospital at Greenwich by the Governors, in order to do Duty on board the Princess Royal, a Guard ship at the Noie, and relieve the same Number of able Seamen, who will be removed into the Ships designed for im- mediate Service. A Gentleman in Town has received a Letter from his Son, Surgeon on board his Majesty's Ship the Le Blond, Captain Kennedy, which brings a Confirmation of the carrying a French East - Indiaman, valued at 130,000l. into the Port of Lisbon. He further adds, that for a Fortnight preceding the Date of his Letter, he had done Duty, though Surgeon, and kept Guard on Quar ter- Deck, on account of the great Number of French Prisoners. By a Letter from board bis Majesty's Ship the Trident in Basque Road, we learn that Lord Howe arrived their the 3d Instant in the Magnanime, wit h the Senegal Sloop ; and succeeds Sir Thomas Stanhope in the Command of Squadron which has been lying there ten Months, in order to block up the French in that Harbour. Yesterday was launched at Deptford his Ma- jesty's Ship Kent of 74 Guns, being the largest of that class in the Royal Navy. Site is ele- gantly decorated and garnished in her Head, stern, and Galleries, and has King William the Conqueror, drest in Armour, for the Figure of the Head, beautifully painted in proper Colours: The Whole mikes a most pleasing Prospect, and several Persons of Distinction were plent on this Occasion. being the first capital Ship launched in the Reign, of their present Majestés. Apublick- spirited Person, it is said, bas a Plan for supporting the Children of the Found ling Hospital without Aid of Parliment. Extracts of a Letter from KINGSTON, in Jamaica, dated January 27. One of our Men of War has brought in a French Schooner, bound from Hispanicia to Bourdeaux, in which were found many Letters, intimating the Intentions of the French to invade this Island, and that fix Frigates were arrived at Cape Francois with 1200 Regulars on board, where they wait, expecting daily to be followed by two Squadrons from Brest and Rochesort, to compleat their Force. This Intelligence, atten ded with that of 18 Sail of the Line, and 7000 Regulars being at the Havannah from Old Spain, and no certain Knowledge of their Destination having transpired, has moved Governor Littleton, with the Advice of a Council of War, to inforce martial Law throughout the Island, and this Day it was proclaimed accordingly. TheCommodore has dispatched two Advice Boats to Admiral Rod- ney, and many of his Cruizers are employ'd in watching the Motions of the Enemy at S.. Do- miniqui and Cuba, as we much inspect a Junction of the Spaniards with the French. Extract 0f a Letter from WEXFORD, March 17. " You will hear of an Earthquake selt here Yes- terday at Six in the Morning. It was preceded by a loud rumbling Noise of the Earth, which I took for a loud Clap of Thunder, but afterwards thought it some heavy- Carriage passing by. And though I lay 0n the Ground Floor, the Shock was so great, that it shook me in my Bed. It was so sudden, and of so short Duration, that I had never thought of an Earthquake, were it not so sensibly felt by most of the Inhabitants here." This is to certify whom it may concern, that about four Years ago our Son Thomas, a Boy of six Years of Age, was afflicted with a violent scorbutic Disorder, had a Scurf all over his Body, and spatted like one in the Measles, which had reduced him very weak, and affected his Speech : When be was in this Condition, we applied to several Surgeons, Sec. in this Town, and got him recommended to the Infirmary, as an Out Pa- tient; and finding he got little or no Relief from the Medicines he had from thence, or elsewhere, we were about 18 Months ago advised to try a Medicine called Dr. Radcliffe's famous purging Elixir, ( prepared by Dicey and Oke'll in London) and that, after taking the first Dose, he threw off his Stomach a great Quantity of red, tough, frog- ish Matter, which he continued to do after every Dose, during the first Bottle: He bad a second Bottle, which purged and created him an Appe- tite. He continued to take a few Bottles more of the said Elixir, which, with one Bottle of Dr. Bateman's Drops, ( taken alternately) thro' the Blessing of the Almighty, soon restored him to a perfect State of Health, and has had no Return of the Disorder since : Which we voluntarily publish, for the Benefit of others under the like Afflictions.

PETERsBOURG, Feb. 26, THE following is a Copy of a Decla- ration delivered a few Days since, by the Emperor's Order, to the Impe- rial, French, and Swedish Ministers residing here. HIS Imperial Majesty, who upon his happy Accession to the Throne of his Ancestors. looks upon it to be his principal Duty, to extend an augment the Welfare of his Subjects, sees with extreme Regret, that the Flames of the present. War, which has already continued for six Years, and has been for a long Time burthensome to all the Powers engaged in it, far from tending nov to a Conclusion, are on the Contrary gathering fresh Strength, to the great Misfortune of the several Nations; and that Mankind has so much the more to sufier from this Scourge, as the For- tune of Anns, which has been hitherto subject to so many Vicissitudes is equally exposed to them for the future: . Wherefore his Imperial Majesty, compassion- ating, through his humane Disposition, the Ef fusion of human Blood, and being desirous, on his Part, of putting a Stop to so great an Evil, has judged it necessary to declare to the Courts in Alliance with Russia, that, preferring to every other Consideration the first Law which God pre- scribes to Sovereigns, which is the Preservation of the People entrusted to them, he wishes to procure Peace to his Empire, to which it is so ne- cessary, and of so great Value ; and at the same Time to contribute, as much as may be in his Power, to the Re- establishment of it throughout all Europe. It is in order to this, That his Imperial Ma- jesty is ready to make a Sacrifice of the Conquests made by the Arms of Russia in this War, in Hopes that the Allied Courts will, on their Part, equally prefer the Restoration of Peace and Tran- quality, to. the Advantages which they might ex- pect from the War, and which, they cannot obtain but by a Continuances, of the Effusion of human Blood. And to this End, his Imperial Majesty, with the nest Intention, advises them to employ, on their Side, all their Power towards the Accom- plishment of so great, and so salutary a Work. ST.
