ABOUT this time Kyriecleison and Pa- 998. ralipomenon were accounted two emi- nent Saints in the Church, and he who could read Greek passed for a sorcerer. 1022. On examining the inventory of the worldly goods of Bouchard, Bishop of Worms, one of the most learned Prelates of his time, who died this year, it was found to consist only of a hair shirt, an iron chain which served him for a belt, and three deniers in money. Times are altered, and with them the inventories of Bishops ! 1467. The people had an extravagant way of adorning their feet. They wore the beaks or pikes of their shoes so long, that they encumbered them- selves in their walking, and were forced to tie them up to their knees ; the fine gentlemen did theirs with chains of silver, or silver gilt, and others with laces. This ridiculous custom was in vogue ever since the year 1382 ; but now it was prohibited on the forfeiture of 20s. and the pain of cursing by the clergy. 1479. Robert Byfield, one of the Sheriffs of London, was fined fifty pounds by the Court of Aldermen, for affronting the Lord- Mayor, which it seem was only by kneeling too near him at prayers a St. Paul's church. Thursday and Friday's Posts. LONDON, March 24. Triple Alliance between Great Bri- tain, France, and Spain, has been long upon the tapis, but is now finally and conclusively settled. This alliance is entered into, to form a counterpoize against the northern confederacy, and was suggested as the best expedient in the scheme of politics for preserving the European balance of power. We are told that the chief motive which induced Lord North to agree to the triple alliance between England,. France, and Spain, was because he had prophecyed that " we should have a ten years lon- ger peace," and so piously disposed is his Lordship that to save his credit as a Prophet he would at any time sacrifice his reputation as a Minister. By a letter from a gentleman at St. Vincent's, we are informed that a party of Caribbs attacked a party of 18 men of the 31st regiment, under the command of Capt. Crafton, who had been left be- hind sick. They killed 7 men and a serjeant, and wounded 3 :— Crafton's party, however, put them to flight, and found five of their carcases in the woods. The Caribbs shot a centinel as he was bathing in the river Nirabau ; and a serjeant, who was posted at a little distance from the camp, was murdered in an inhuman manner by these savages : They cut off his nose and right arm, and scooped out both his eyes. We hear from Dublin, that Beauchamp Bagnall, Esq. who lately challenged Major Blaquiere, was himself challenged a few days since by Captain K. they fought with pistols, and Mr. Bagnall was shot in the arm in so desperate a manner, that the limb was necessity amputated. The cause of the du- el is said to have been a dispute at a game of ha- zard, between Mr. B. Captain K. and other gentle- men, in a private house. Yesterday several fine sheep were sold in Smith- field at 58s. each, such as were sold only ten years ago, from a guinea to a moidore. Yesterday morning two bacon spare- ribs were said in Leadenhall- market, one of which weighed 51 lb. and a half, and the other 5 2 lb. supposed to be the largest ever brought to a London market. Betty Jones, the Orange Girl in the Piazzas, Covent- Garden, we are informed, has had left her by a distant relation, within these few days, the firm of 12001. per ann. If it be true which a senator once asserted, " that the common ( or poor) people of England were on- ly packhorses fit to be saddled with heavy taxes, duties and imposts, even then a certain House should have passed the bill to lower the prices of provisions ; for if we must at any rate be packhor- ses, it is but reasonable that those who make us so, should take care to provide us with provender. But now ( as one observes) our humane p t, On more important business bent, Than care of us poor sinners ; Give us but smells and founds for food, Neglect our cries, and call us rude, Because we want our dinners. DUBLIN, March 19. Never were sudden deaths more frequent than at present : Capt. Ageaw, of Prussia- street, enjoyed a good state of health, and drank tea with his family on Sunday evening last, when, without a single groan, or complaint of any kind, he fell back on his couch, and instantly ex- pired. And on Wednesday an eminent Tradesman on the Poddle fell down dead on the stairs, though in seeming good health a few minutes before. This day Col. Ban's observed in the House, Commons, that Opposition was quite dead, and he was left Chief Mourner o'er her Bier. A leading Man in the Ministry was lately attacked for his manifest partiality to the Scots in the disposal of Places and Offices : Why, the Scots, cries the Minister, are the only people at this time fit to serve their King and Country : How do you know ? re- plies a Gentleman, for the English in this Reign have never been tried.

HAPPINESS. Quantuli natura indiget ? YOU bid me tell you what I crave : I answer, Nought but what I have. A chearful mate, in life to share Th' extremes of pleasure and of care : Three infant blessings, to beguile My hours, and make my sorrow smile : Enough to welcome every friend, And bear me to my journey's end : A liberal hand and chearful heart, To give th' unhappy poor their part : And ( best of all) to crown the whole, A mind content, and thankful soul. How vain the things beyond our reach, Which av'rice and ambition teach ! How oft unblest each envy'd state ! A villain may be rich or great. Heav'n ne'er design'd by Gold to show The world its favorites below : And honour's but an airy blaze, Dependent on another's praise. True happiness consists in sense, Health, quiet, and a competence. You own me right ; but, not content, You ask if this is all I want ? Not all : kind Heav'n indulge my pray'r ; Long, long my wife and children spare : As years increase, improve the mind With sense to charm and serve mankind ; With each capacity to please ; And give ' em virtue, health, and ease ; Save ' em from anguish and distress, Or give me half, to make it less. But still dispose my grateful mind In ev'ry state to be resign'd ; In ev'ry change of good or ill, May I be happy in thy will : And, if from earth my joys thou bear, May I reach Heav'n, and meet ' em there. C. B— Substance of Wednesday's Debate in the House of Com- mons, on the Bill for Relief of Protestant Dissenters in Matters of Subscription. SIR Roger Newdigate then said, he was as much for Toleration as any man, but that the Bill infringed upon the Act of Union. He was an- swered by Mr. Dyson, who shewed the futility of this opinion. Sir Wm. Bagot again rose, and said " he would make a proposal to the advocates for the bill, which was, that previous to going into a Committee, they should point out such books of Scripture as they deemed canonical."— On this Sir Wm. Meredith spoke as follows. Sir Wm. Meredith.— The honourable Gentle- man's proposal tempts me to relate to him a story, Archbishop Tennison conceived a design of begin- ning a Reformation in the Liturgy. Previous to his putting it in execution, it was proposed to him to reject either the book of Bel and the Dragon, or the book of Daniel, out of the number of the cano- nical books, it being impossible for the stories con- tained in both to be true.— So far, Sir, in answer to the Gentleman's proposal. By way of retort to several invidious reflections which during the course of this day's debate have been call upon the Petition I had the honour to bring in, I shall only say that I am content to suffer, in common with those concerned, every species of disgrace arising from the measure. Sir, the sincerity of some of the Gentlemen who signed that Petition has been reflected upon ; I shall say but one word in answer to the reflection. One Gentleman who signed the Petition [ Doctor Chambers] has lately refused as considerable a promotion as any private man need wish for, because, consistent with his principles, he could not subscribe the arttcles. Mr. Duntz, and Mr. Gray next spoke in favour of the Bill ; and in the course of the debate an as- sertion having fallen from one of the Members, that there was now no occasion to repeal or set aside such of the penal Laws as affected the Dissenters be- cause they were not put in execution, a Member arose and made the following remark. A Member.— Sir, as I understand the case, there are but two periods wherein a Law can be repealed or set aside ; the one is when its grievance is gene- ally complained of and felt, the other is when it lies dormant and is not deemed fit to be put into execution. The temper of the times, Sir, must always be considered : Would it not have been folly to have talked of repealing the statute De Heretico Comburendo, in the days of Queen Mary ? Would it not have been folly to have talked of repealing the statute by virtue of which old women, supposed to be witches, suffered death ? We know that there was a time when it was universally believed that a poor old woman could bewitch people, and fly a- cross the air on a broomstick. We also know that lb conscientious, so worthy a man as Lord Hale condemned a woman to death who was arraigned for witchcraft. When a doctrine is believed, how- ever erroneous, then is not the time to talk of re- pealing such Laws as relate to it. With respect to the Dissenters to say that they enjoy a liberty by connivance, is to say they scarcely enjoy any liber- ty all. The Hugonots in France are connived at ; their Ministers preach publicly to them, but they do it at their peril, for the State may hang them for so doing, and the policy of the Court is their only indemnification. Mr. Onslow.— Sir, I only rife to rectify a mistake which several of the Members may labour under, relative to the persons who signed the Petition from Chatham. They are not what they call themselves either Ministers or Dissenters ; they are harmless Methodists, at the head of whom is one Captain joss, who preaches in the Tabernacle, Tottenham Court ; but, Sir, as his name was so well known, fearing a discovery, he would not venture to sign the Petition ; neither, Sir, are these persons Minis- ters regularly ordained, either in the Presbyterian or Episcopal way ; they feel a call within, Sir, to preach the Gospel, and hence give themselves the appellation of Ministers. A Member having asserted that the " Dissenters themselves required the youth in their Academies to subscribe a certain test," Sir Harry Houghton as- sued the House that the assertion was false, for that such a measure was adopted at only one Dis- senting Academy, the Master of which had signed the Petition against the Bill. Thus ended this remarkable debate ; and at near eight o'clock, the House being cleared, the num- bers, upon a division, appeared as follow : For the Bill 69, against it 16. On the fatal Consequences arising from the Easiness of obtaining Credit. LUXURY is arrived at so high a pitch, that one would think it impossible to see it carried high- er, if daily increase did not prove daily, that nothing will stop its progress but the utter ruin of the nation. The Gentry live beyond their income ; merchants beyond their gains ; tradesmen and mechanics beyond their earnings. This evil is so general, that we must not blame the unfortunate individuals who are ruined by its baneful influence, but the Legislature that suf- fers the contagion to spread and to work the ruin of the State. Indeed, it is much more a national con- cern than a private one. I own, it costs the indivi- dual his fortune, his liberty, arid often his life : But then there is a turn to his sufferings, and Death secures to him, at last, peace and repose. But the State, when overturned by revolutions, when undone by the corruption of morals, when ruined by the de- cay its members, retains still a keen sense of its miseries ; and it languishes, without the comforting hope of being relieved by annihilation. I say, we must not blame the unfortunate indivi- duals who are ruined by the baneful effects of this evil, luxury. Where is the man who can alone resist the strength of corruption's stream ? Where is the man who can resist the united temptations of vanity and example ? Where is the man who can refuse to a wife whom he loves, or perhaps fears, the very reasonable demand of being upon an equality with her neighbours, when they are no ways her superiors in rank or fortune ?— If a man alledges, in order to avoid granting what such a wife requires, That he is low in cash, that he has large payments to make ; his wife will not fail of reminding him of his Credit ; and that the mercer, the upholsterer, the jeweller, will trust him with ala- crity and pleasure : His own vanity will come to her assistance, and support the argument, in shewing the necessity of doing as others do, lest his Credit should suffer by his oeconomy ; lest people should think him in low circumstances.— And, permit me to observe, that this necessity is nothing less than fictitious in these times ; since a man's appearance and expences are often the foundation on which his Credit is estab- lished. I have seen many a modest man, who would not dress beyond his circumstances, miss that aid and encouragement which others have met with, by means of their extravagance and their finery. It is some- thing very extraordinary, and at the same time very true, that those people who are conscious that their own appearance is much above what they can really afford, are yet but too apt to believe another man to be very rich, because he is very richly dressed, and his house very richly furnished. Luxury is then, of course, the cause of so many people's ruin. But what is the natural cause of the increase of luxury ? Nothing else, but the easiness of obtaining Credit. If people were obliged to pay for their cloaths be- fore they wore them, how many, who will not be contented with any thing inferior to superfine cloth, and often not even with that, unless embellished with silk linings, silver or gold lace and embroidery, would be obliged to put up with plain coarse cloth or fustian if the draper and the Taylor gave no credit ? How many, whose large houses are richly ornamented with expensive glasses, hangings, carpets, carvings, India woods, & c. would be contented with a small apart- ment, an oaken table and burea, a common stuff bed & c. if the upholsterer demanded his payment on the delivery of the goods ? Then, the example of a neighbour would be no inducement to a man for liv- ing beyond his circumstances : His wife might re- monstrate, that Mrs. Such- a- one wore costly silks and rich laces, and yet was no better than she. The husband would have an unanswerable reply to make : She is no better than you, would he say, but her hus- band is richer than I am ; I cannot afford such ex- pences ; I have no money to spare. And, to de- monstrate his inability to comply with her wishes, he would have nothing more to do, than to shew her the bottom of his empty coffers, the lift of the payments he has to make, and the state of his account with his banker. People of all ranks, of all orders, would keep within due bounds. Sensible they could not get any of the necessaries of life without ready money ; nor money, but what accrues either from their income or their labour ; they would not squander it away on the turf, in the tavern, the gaming- house, the bro- thel ; they would restrain their necessities to the state of their circumstances ; their tables would not be decked with the same profusion, the same luxurious extravagance ; no shamefully exorbitant prices would be given for the earliest of common vegetables, nor would they be despised when plentiful, cheap, and salutary ; dainties would no longer spoil their consti- tution ; wholesome, homely food, and frugal living, would become again of general use and practice ; and health, vigour, ease, and prosperity, would be the reward of oeconomy. RICHARD GOLDSTONE, APOTHECARY and DENTIST, In BROAD- STREET, BATH, ( Eldest Son of the late John Goldstone, deceased) BEGS Leave to inform the Nobility, Gentry, and the Public, that he DRAWS TEETH and STUMPS with the greatest Ease and Safety ; likewise Cleans TEETH, and prepares a DENTIFRICE that cleans and beautifies them, preserves the Gums, and removes every Obstruction that is in the least injurious to either.— Also ARTIFICIAL TEETH made in so neat a Manner as not to be distinguished from Natural Ones.— CORNS and TOE- NAILS that grow into the Flesh, he removes with great Ease and Dexterity.— He likewise executes every other Branch of his late Father's Prosession. He returns sincere Thanks to his Friends for the great Encouragement he has already received, and humbly hopes for a Continuation of their Favours, which he will exert his utmost Endeavours to merit. Those who have irregular or decay'd Teeth, may have them extracted, and replaced with hand- some found ones, which will fix and become as useful as the best Natural Teeth. On TRUTH. FAIREST charm which nature knows, Sprung from the clear celestial source From whence all Good spontaneous flows, From whence all virtues take their course. O, sweetest power ! from thee we draw The dearest treasures of the mind ; Under thy just, thy sacred law, We live contented and resign'd. ' Tis thine to ease the pain- rack'd breast, With doubts, with trembling fears o'erwhelm'd ; Thy balmy influence spreads out rest, Whilst each corroding thought's dispell'd. The steady philosophic eye, Traces thro' clouds thy genial ray. Resplendent issuing from on high, Dispensing universal day. ' Tis thou, O Truth ! with force divine, Who opens all religion's stores, And bids each holy tenet shine, ' Till all mortality shall be no more. The boasted honours of the vain. And worldly pride, shall never stay ; But thou, sweet Truth, shalt still remain, When these effects are pass'd away. And when all Nature's self shall fall, When ev'ry earthly trace is fled, Then shalt thou be enthron'd o'er all, And joys immortal round thee spread.

This Preparation, which for Purity and Goodness far exceeds every other, is well known to be the most powerful Corrector of Acid in the Stomach and Bowels ; and is therefore particularly efficacious in Childrens Disorders, and may be safely given to them in their earliest Infancy. It is equally serviceable to Persons of more advanced Years, of delicate Con- stitutions, and to those whose Powers of Digestion are naturally weak, or impaired, as it corrects that Acidity arising from Indigestion, which is the Foun- dation of most chronical Complaints. The Heart- burn it instantly cures, and is an effectual Remedy for habitual Costiveness. It is also the most gentle Purgative yet discovered, operates without Sickness or Griping, requires no Confinement, or Regimen of Diet, and is entirely without Smell or Taste.

He SCALES TEETH, and makes an In- comparable TINCTURE for the Scurvy in the Gums ; also an excellent Powder and Dentifrice for preserving, fastening, and beautifying the Teeth, at One Shilling each Article. These Medicines are exceedingly serviceable to the Teeth and Gums, especially to those who are subject to Pains therein. Rub the Teeth with a little of the Denti- frice or Powder, after which wash them clean with Water, then a few Drops of the Tincture applied with a Spunge or soft Brush which he sells for that Purpose. They do not in the least hurt the Enamel of the Teeth, but preserve it by cleansing them from that tartarous Substance which is the principal Cause of their decaying, having been used upwards of 25 Years with the greatest Satisfaction. He also Bleeds, and cuts Corns and Toe- Nails that grow into the Flesh. N. B. All Operations belonging to the Teeth, he performs himself, but as to making Artificial Teeth, which he carries on as usual, it is performed by Mr. ALLEN, who is Partner with him in the Art of making and fixing Natural Teeth, or Artificial Ones, which they make from one to an entire Set, in so neat a Manner as not to be distinguished from Natural ones. At the same Place is sold the Essence of Pepper- - mint, so highly esteemed by many able Physicians, which is prepared by John Juniper ; also Hemet's Essence of Pearl, and Pearl Dentrifrices, Adams's Grand Specific for the Stone and Gravel, Hill's Balsam of Honey, Essence of Myrrh and Myrrh Dentifrice, with many other Patent Medicines, viz. Daffy's Elixir, Godfrey's Cordial, Hooper's Pills, Anderson's Scots Pills, Issue Plaisters and Peas of all Sorts, & c. & c. *** All Persons indebted to the Estate and Effects of the late Mr. JOHN GOLDSTONÉ, of this City, Dentist, are desired to pay the same to Mr. Arthur Trimnell, Upholsterer, in West- gate- Street, or to William Goldstone, in Green- Street.— And all Per- sons to whom the said John Goldstone was indebted, are desired to send an Account of the same to the above Persons.

SIR, THE great Cure I have received, by taking your Maredant's Drops, merits my public Thanks ; being perfectly restored to Health, after an Illness of eight Years. At first I was taken with a violent nervous Fe- ver, which rendered me unable to get my Bread ; after having took many Medicines without Effect, for a long Time, I was advised, by the Physicians, to try whether my native Air would be of Service ; I tried, but found none : Soon after, a Swe'ilng appealed in my right Knee ; being then at Shrewsbury, I was persuaded to have the Advice of the Infirmary, where my Knee was cured ; but I had the Misfortune to get a violent Cold, by a Window's being lest open when I was in a Sweat ; I was then seized with a Soreness in my Head, Collar- Bone, and one of my Arms which was immediately succeeded by a most acute Pain in those Parts. In this Situation I returned to London, and took every Medicine the Physicians 01 my Friends advised for the Rheumatism, as the Faculty then pronounced that to be my Case, but without finding the least Benefit. 1 then was ordered to go to Margate, where I drank the Waters, and bathed in the Sea, for some Time, but found no Relief. I re- turned to London much worse then I left it, and continu- ed very ill for some Time, and then my Disorder took another Turn ; for there appeared several Lumps on my Head, Face, Neck, and Arms ; two of them on my Head broke, and lay open two Years : In this deplo- rable State ( a Burthen to myself and a real Grief to my Friends) was I, when an Acquaintance, who had re- ceived a Cure in her Leg, by the Use of Maredant's Drops, advised me to take them : In the Course of my taking them, two large Pieces of Bone worked out of the Wounds. It is a Year and three Quarters since I discontinued the Medicine, and still remain in perfect Health. I am your obedient humble Servant, December 17, 1772. MARY LUTE, At Mr. Field's, in Castle- Street, near Leicester- Fields. Witnesses, Tho. Field, Castle- street ; Henry Hyde, Butcher, St. James's Market. Any Person still doubtful of the Efficacy of this Medicine, may ( by applying to Mr. NORTON, Surgeon, the West- Side of Golden- Square, near Piccadilly, Lon- don, the only Author and Proprietor, where these Drops are sold in Bottles of 6s. each) be fully convinced of their good Effect, by being referred to many People of Credit, who have been cured of the Leprosy, Scur- vy, Ulcers, the Evil, Fistulas, Piles, long- continued In- flammations of the Eyes, and every other Disorder aris- ing from a Foulness in the Blood. They may be taken in any Season, without the least Inconvenience or Hind- rance of Business. They also perfect Digestion, and amazingly create an Appetite. N. B. These Drops are in Square Bottles, with the fol- lowing Inscription on them, viz. John Norton, only Proprie- tor and Author of Maredant's Drops. These Drops are also sold by Mr. ATTWOOD, Toy- Maker, in the Market- Place, BATH, who was cured of an inveterate Scurvy by the Use of them ; Mr. BON- NER, Stationer, in Castle Street, Bristol ; Miss ANDERDON, at Taunton ; Mr. Hancock, at Frome ; Messrs. Smith and Co. at Chard ; Mr. Symes at Bridgewater ; and Mr. Burrough at Devizes. None are Genuine, but what are signed by JOHN NORTON in his own Hand- Writing. Beware of Counterfeits .— Maredant's Drops, so uni- versally known and esteemed, were never sold for less than Six SHILLINGS the Bottle. Mr. NORTON having lately discovered that his Bottles, Bills of Direction, together with his Hand- Writing, have been counterfeited, in Order to impose OR the Public a spurious Medicine for his ( Maredant's) Drops, he therefore hopes, for their Health's- Sake, they will be extremely cautious of whom they buy them.

BY his Majesty's Letters Patent ( granted to WALTER LEAKE, of the City of London, P. P.) Recommended the Justly Famous PILL, called in the Patent, PILULA SALUTARIA ; and is there pronoun- ced to be a Cure for the SCURVY, RHEUMATISM, and the VENEREAL DISEASE. In 15 Days it gene- rally cures those cruel Disorders ; and where it sails in that Time of perfectly restoring Health, the Patient has the happy Assurance that he or she is at the Eve of being to restored, let the Degree of Malignancy be ever so great. It is an Excellency peculiar to these Pills, to make directly to the complaining Part, and enter into Contest with the offending Matter, which they suddenly dislodge and excell. They are declared by Experience to be a Preserver of Health, as well as a Restorer, by taking only 8 Pills ( as instructed by the Direction Bills) once or twice a Year. In short, the Patentee has this extraordi- nary obligation to them, that whatever he promised himself from them, they were sure to fulfil and exceed, as though impatient of immortal and universal Fame. These PILLS are most worthy a place in the Cabinet of Masters and Captains of Ships ; and the more so, for that they require no Confinement nor Restraint of Diet, will keep good in all Climates any Length of Time, and effect a Cure even when Salivation sails.

AMONG all the Arts and Sciences that fill the Circle of human Learning, there is not one that has more Claim to our Attention than GEOGRAPHY; a Science that entertains while it instructs, and blends the most pleasing Ideas with the most valuable Acquisitions of Knowledge. If it should be asked wherein we apprehend this Work is superior to the several Geographical Grammars already extant, the Answer is easy : The Picture, of which those Authors delineated the Outlines only, is here completed. The small Compass they were confined to, obliged them to give short, and often imperfect Sketches of the differ- ent Particulars of the terraqueous Globe, leaving the more useful and valuable parts to be described by others,— This we presume will be granted when it is known, that the vast Continent of Africa is confined to less than two Sheets, even in the most comprehensive Geo- graphical Grammar yet printed. We will, however, venture to pronounce this Performance, not only A GEO- GRAPHICAL GRAMMAR, but also, A COMPLETE SYS- TEM or GEOGRAPHY.

An Authentic Account of Yesterday's DEBATE in the HOUSE of COMMONS. ABOUT two o'clock the Speaker took the chair, and the House proceeded to busi- ness.— A Member asked leave to present a petition from Major Rogers, who, he said, was an unfortunate man involved in debt, who had performed some great services to the na- tion, and had a demand upon the Treasury. Lord North said, he had no authority on the part of the Crown to assent to the petition being brought up ; that he believed Major Rogers had done some service, and that he was in debt. His Lordship said, that after repeated applications, the Treasury had granted him a considerable sum of money, which, from an account delivered since and from the information they had received, they could not justify.— The petition was not presented. About half past three Mr. Alderman Harley pre- sented to the House the report of the Secret Com- mittee. The Clerk was till a quarter past five reading it through. After which Sir Edward Ast- ley moved, that the report be printed. A little debate ensued. No one opposed the motion but Mr. Jenkinson ; and Lord North declared, that he thought it would be less public by being published by order of the House, than not, as appeared from other reports printed, which had gone abroad ; but that pirated accounts would be got at, if possible, and unhappily ( said his Lordship laughing) we cannot prevent the printers from obtaining them, by some means or other. Lord Clive, in a few words, observed, that he never heard of the Mottut tax till last summer, when he read it in a news- paper in Shropshire, tho' he was accused in the report of establishing it. He declared that Mr. Wilkes, the evidence, was par- tial, and sometimes false, and was employed by the India Company to throw dirt on the servants abroad, in order to lessen the burden of the Di- rectors at home. Mr. Sykes attempted to exculpate himself, but could not. He declared the Mottut did not con- stitute a farthing of his fortune, for he employed it to support his dignity in India. Governor Johnstone was entering with great spirit and freedom into the conduct of the delinquents, but was interrupted by Mr. H. Cavendish, who called to order, as they had no motion to debate upon, and it was disorderly. Mr. Hussey then made a motion, that instructions be given to the Select Committee, for enquiring in- to the conduct of the Directors, and to see if no association had been entered into for the purpose of selling and transferring India stock. Mr. Sulivan and Mr. Purling agreed to it, and after some little alteration it passed. The House adjourned about a quarter past six. Yesterday afternoon, about two o'clock, died, at his house in Hertford- street, May- Fair, the Right Hon. Philip Dormer Stanhope, Earl of Chester- field. He was born Sep. 22, 1695, and succeeded his father the 27th of January 1725- 6, elected Knight of the Garter May 18, 1730, and soon after made Lord Steward of his Majesty's Houshold, and Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the States- General, and Lord- Lieutenant of Ire- land in the year 1745. On the 15th of September 1733, he married Lady Milesina, Countess of' Walsingham.— His title descends to Master Philip Stanhope, a minor, about eighteen years of age, now at Leipsic university.— General Sir Charles Hotham, and Beaumont Hotham, Esq. Member in Parliament for Wigan in Lancashire, are his Executors. The master of a vessel arrived from the West In- dies says, that the ship Goldsbury, Capt. Tyler, from New England, has been sunk by a Spanish man of war off the Havanna. The crew were saved. Three men of war and two frigates, together with a regiment of soldiers, are ordered to sail im- mediately for Jamaica. There are letters in town from St, Vincent's which mention that a party of infantry, under the, command of Capt. Irwin, had come up with about an hundred of the armed Caribbs, headed by a de- serter from the 6th regiment, when after a smart engagement, which lasted near an hour, the Caribbs were dispersed, and their ringleader taken, who was immediately put in irons and sent under a strong guard to the head- quarters. Lieut. Col. Walsh was killed by his rashness, in going out to reconnoitre with a party of six men on- ly, and keeping considerably a- head of his men, notwithstanding he was remarkably near- sighted,— Major Mackenzie succeeds Lieut. Col. Walsh in the 31st regiment of foot at St. Vincent's. Yesterday evening there was a numerous meeting of the Freeholders of the county of Huntingdon, at the Buffalo tavern, Bloomsbury, when a Gentle- man proposed that a similar engagement to that proposed by the late Common Hall, for shortening the duration of Parliament, should subscribed by the Candidates at the next election, which was unanimously approved of. An honest American, lately arrived from New York, enquiring of a gentleman in the House of Commons which was Lord North, on being shewn him he exclaimed, " stood G— ! what a face! the features of it look as if they had been thrown together by an earthquake." We are assured that the following article is alrea- dy entered in the city accounts by order of the Lord Mayor : " Twenty- one pounds paid to the " Attorney General, Edward Thurlow, Esq. for " his opinion that the city remonstrance was a " LIBEL." It is reported that an additional tax will be laid, during this session of Parliament, on all plate for use ; but that dealers in the said article, will not be affected by the above tax. Yesterday a battle was fought for 40 guineas on Kennington Common, between one Lipscombe, a journeyman cabinet- maker in Whitechapel, and a waterman of Horsley down ; when after a contest of seventeen minutes, the latter received a blow on the temple, which killed him on the spot. A few days since died raving mad, occasioned by the bite of a mad dog, the only daughter of Mr. Jewel, a farmer of Iver, Bucks. On Thursday at York, came on, before the Hon. Sir Henry Gould, Knt. and a special jury, the great cause between Daniel Lascelles Esq. plain- tiff, and the Earl of Egremont defendant, con- cerning the right to the soil and royalties of Folli- foot Moor, directed in the inclosure act of Parlia- ment to be tried, The jury found a verdict for the plaintiff. Sunday evening as Mr. Hind, one of the King's messengers, was on his way to Charleton in Wilts, the seat of Lord Suffolk, one of his Majesty's prin- cipal Secretaries of State, with packet of dis- patches for Lordship, he was set upon by three footpads on Salt Hill, who robbed him of his gold watch and ten guineas ; and also a lady who was with him in the chaise, of two guineas, with which they got clear off ; but it seems one of the fellows was so terrified at Mr. Hind's telling him, That he would certainly be hanged, for he was one of the King's messengers," that he went yesterday morning to Sir John Fielding's and turned evidence against his accomplices, who were taken and committed to Newgate. Monday upwards of 1000 Stocking- makers as- sembled together, and went to the house of Mr. Simpson. Hosier, in the Market- place at Leicester, where they demanded a machine for making stock- ings, which Mr. Simpson had in his possession. After much altercation, Mr. Simpson, to save his house and property from being destroyed, gave up the frame to the resentment of the Stocking- makers, who carried it in triumph along the public streets, after which they totally destroyed it, and every one went home. The above machine had only three motions, weighed about 25lb. and worked one third quicker, which was the sole reason of the Stocking makers destroying it, as work would be more scarce, and at this time hundreds are unem- ployed. A great house in Dublin is said to have stopt pay- ment. Yesterday thirteen Commissions of Bankrupts passed the Great Seal. Early yesterday morning a gentleman with a sword lying by him was found barbarously murdered in a ditch in St. George's Fields ; he was almost stripped naked, and no money found about him. This morning a Milkman was found lying by his pails, near Cow's Farm, Holloway, with his throat cut : His pockets were rifled. Yesterday morning, about five o'clock, one Mr. Nixon, an attorney, in Joiner- street, Southwark, was found drowned near Executioh- dock. It seems he has for some time been delirious, owing to ex- treme poverty, notwithstanding his having rich re- lations in Berkshire. On Thursday se'nnight was buried in All Saints church- yard, in Leicester, the body of Thomas Cartwright. aged 24 years. It is remarkable he measured only 36 inches high, and had never any teeth.

HIS day the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, attended by Mr. Alderman Bull, Sir Wat- kin Lewes, one of the Sheriffs, and eight of the Livery of the City of London, waited on his Majesty with the Petition and Remon- strance, which was read by John Glyn, Esq. recorder To which Petition, and Remonstrance, his Majesty returned the following Answer: IHave the satisfaction to think, that ray people do hot doubt of my readiness to attend to their complaints, or of my ardent desire to promote their real happiness ; which I cannot more effectually do, than by refilling every Attempt to sow groundless Jealousies among them. Your petition is so void of foundation, and is, besides, conceived in such dis- respectful terms, that I am convinced you do not yourselves seriously imagine it can be complied with. [ The. King was attended by a numerous Court, and seemed very chearful ; and before the Citizens were introduced to his Majesty, they were given to understand, that on such an Occasion as the pre- sent, they were not to expect to kiss Hand.] the King's LONDON, March 27. Yesterday the corn- bill was moved to be recom- mitted in the House of Commons, on which a short debate ensued.— Mr. E. Burke said, Have we not had a mock enquiry ? Have we not pretended to do what we knew we could not? It was impossible we could lower the high price of provisions ; and, I repeat it again, that it is impolitic and unjust to flat- ter the people ; Of all systems it is the worst, al- though it has been the practice of late years, I wish this House to act with firmness and consistency. We are not to consult popular prejudices without doors. The multitude are incapable of judging from their ignorance : Let us not deceive them, but meet them upon fair and honest ground. Bravely oppose their passions, and tell them WE CANNOT RELIEVE YOU ; that we cannot alter the decrees of Providence not- withstanding you have been told the contrary in a cajoling speech from the throne. This would be a fair and open part, worthy of us to act ; the other is a crooked system which will ever return to its au- thors. Petitions, I allow, have been presented to us from large manufacturing towns and cities. What then ! are they capable of instructing the landed gentlemen ? No ! they know how to eat, but they do not know how to raise corn. The city of London have also petitioned us ; and I do not mean to flatter them : How should they know about corn? They, who do hot know but crammed fowls drop down from the sky. They may know the prices of iron and linen, but they should never pretend to prescribe prices to the far- mer. Shall men, who are continually gorging re- commend an oeconomical and frugal manner of liv- ing to the farmer ? Shall their ignorance instruct the landed interest ? for ignorant they are, arid igno- rance will always be found in large cities. Let us pot regulate our conduct within by the voice with- out. I advise the Minister to oppose popular ap- plause in this instance, and not because I would have him unpopular, for I recommend to him what I would follow myself. I advise him to act with in- trepidity, and by no means flatter the people. He will then be supported with dignity, and be able to command it. Without it he will fink into con tempt, disgrace and infamy. Once more, I inform you, that I oppose the recommitment, not from the goodness of the bill, but for its approaching to the ancient corn laws. On the question being put, the recommitment was rejected without a division. We hear the French have demanded to march a body of troops, consisting of 60,000 men, through the Hanoverian dominions, which they give out are to assist the Swedes, in cafe Swedish Pomerania should be attacked, as it is apprehended ; but the query is by whom ? not by Denmark, it is evident as they have disarmed their fleets ; nor surely by the King of Prussia, as he would hardly strive to annoy and injure his own nephew, whom he himself has made despotic ; therefore this great army of the French will be destined ! for another and more mate- rial purpose ; and it is reported, with much confi- dence, by the ablest connoiseurs in the political world, that there is an alliance formed between the French and us, to which Spain, Holland and Sar- dinia will accede ; that these troops are designed to defend the Hanoverian dominions, if his Prussian Majesty should keep his word and invade them, as he has threatened ; that they are to be joined by the Hanoverians and 20,000 Saxon troops, which his most Christian Majesty has some time since taken into his pay, all which, when united, will form an army of 100,000 men and upwards ; that these forces are further to act offensively upon another oc- casion ; that those Poles who are free from the iron rod of the three enslaving powers, are to come over to them, & c. & c. that in consequence, and for sup- port of those measures, there is a large combined fleet of the maritime powers to appear in the Medi- terranean. To restore Poland is not the least ob- ject of those mighty preparations, we may be as- sured, however specious other pretexts may seem. The late Earl of Chesterfield, convinced by ex- perience of the fatal consequences attendant on gaming, has left his valuable estate to his nephew, now abroad, under certain severe restrictions ; a- mong many others equally prudent is the following : —" That he never be seen at Newmarket during any of the meetings, under the penalty of 50001. and that he forfeit the sum of 50001. for any sum of 1001. lost by him at any sport or game at White's, Arthur's, Boodle's, & c." His Lord- ship empowers, by this his last testament, the Dean and Chapter of Canterbury to sue for and recover the forfeited sums aforesaid, and to appropriate them to the sole use of that church A gentleman just arrived from Barbadoes says that the night before he left that island, Mr. Ros- tin, a merchant of that place, and his family, were inhumanly murdered by two negroe slaves, who lived in the house. The Bill for the better support of poor persons under certain circumstances, was yesterday rejected in the Upper Assembly, on a division 55 ; against 6. On Wednesday came on to be tried, at Bury St. Edmund's, in Suffolk, a Cause wherein Samuel Berry, of Beccles, in the said county, was Plaintiff, and a Gentleman of Fortune, Defendant. The Action was brought for a forcible entry into the plaintiff's house in the night time ( he being then from home,) with an intent to debauch his daughter. The Jury found a verdict for the Plaintiff, and gave him 2001. damages, M. de Savigny, First President of the Parlia- ment and Intendant of Paris, has fallen on a most useful establishment, which is to prevent begging and strolling ; in order to this he ordered all vaga- bonds to be taken up, and disposed them in certain districts for the present, where they are fed at the expence of the King. Out of these are to be chosen such as are able, to mend the highways, or do any other work about which they shall be set. STOCKS. Bank Stock, 143 1- 4th. India ditto 155.

Saturday afternoon the Poor- house at Bathwick was consumed by fire, occasioned by the flames from the chimney communicating to the thatch. A few days since was killed a cow belonging to Farmer Collett, of the parish of Melksham, Wilts, supposed to be with calf, but on opening it there were found on one kidney 5 score and 4lb. of Fat. Friday night or early Saturday morning the house of Dr. Jennings, in King's- mead- square, was broke open and robb'd of a silver candlestick, and several other valuable articles. Last Week a Girl, who lived at Service in Bristol, took Lodgings in Queen- street, in that city, and be- ing very ill sent for her Mother from Brislington to come and see her. The old woman from symptoms suspected her being pregnant, and charged her with it, but die absolutely denied it, declaring her Com- plaint to be the Cholic.— However, in the Absence of her Mother last Saturday die was secretly deli- vered of a Child, which the Mother being suspici- ous of, on her Return examined and found a fine Male Child dead, which it is imagined she smo- ther'd.— A Coroner's Inquest was taken on the body that evening, and they brought in their Verdict wil- ful murder against the Girl, who is committed to Newgate. We are desired to caution the public against being imposed upon by a tall, thin, impudent, ill- looking fellow, one Tho Woodham of Marshfield in Glocester- shire. He goes about the country with a petition for charity, on account of losses he pretends to have sus- tained by the fire that lately happened at that town. Tis true, the house he lived in was burnt ; but ' tis equally true the damage he sustained thereby did not in the whole amount to the value of five shillings. At the adjournment of the Quarter- sessions in Bris- tol on Wednesday lad, Margaret Curtis, for deal- ing a coat ; Ann Ashford, for stealing a brass ket- tle, and John Hicks, for defrauding Mr. Arthur Palmer of 91b. of tea, were sentenced to be trans- ported for seven years. Just arrived from London, with Submission to the Curious, the SO- MUCH FAMED ENGLISH HUSSAR intends to display his unparalleled Exhi- bition in the Great Room at the QUEEN'S- HEAD in CHEAP- STREET, with Variations, this present Mon- day Morning, and To- Morrow and Wednesday Mornings, at Twelve o'Clock. His Performance consists of Mathematical, Philo- sophical, and uncommon Deceptions. He will per- form his Card Deceptions with any Pack he never saw or handled before : Not like other Tricks, which ( when made known) prove to be simple and insig- nificant ; for the Hussar generously explains the Na- ture of his Feats, at the Time of performing them : And even then allowed, by the mod principal Judg- es, to be astonishing. He had the Honour to exhibit before their Majesties and the red of the Royal Fa- mily, the Marquis of Granby, General Paoli, and Numbers of the Nobility of this Kingdom ; and will forfeit one Hundred Guineas to any Person that shall do the like, upon his Principles. He has received a Premium from the Society of Arts, for an Invention of his own in the Art of Gunnery, which far ex- ceeds any Thing ever known in Great Britain. The Hussar will allow any Person in Company to load a Gun or Pistol with Powder and Ball themselves, and fire it at him ; when he will receive the Ball on the Point of a Knife or Sword, and shew it to the Spec- tators instantly. This he does without either Coat of Mail or Armour on his Body for a Defence, or any Confederacy whatsoever, or the lead alarm to the Ladies. idly. He will give a Specimen of the Act of telling any Person's Thoughts in Company, with- out Figures. He likewise commands a Pack of Cards to walk one by one after him till all be called for. — Those Ladies and Gentlemen, that please to ho- nor him with their Company, will be entertained with above three Hundred other Deceptions, equally surprizing, in the Act of Conveying Money, Cards, live Birds, & c.— The Audience will likewise be en- tertained with several other Performances too tedious to mention ; with proper Music and Decorations. To which will be added, The EXHIBITION of BEES, by the Sieur REA. REA with uncommon Art and matchless Skill Commands those Insects, who obey his Will. With Bees all other cruel Means employ, They take the Honey and the Bees destroy. But he instructs us with ingenious Ease, To take the Honey, and preserve the Bees. 1st. He commands the Bees out of the Hive into his Hat, or any other Persons in Company, if de- sired.— 2d. He causes the Bees to leave the Hat and hang upon his naked Arm, representing a Swarm of Bees on the Bough of a Tree.— 3d. He removes the whole Swarm from his Arm to his naked Head and Face in a mod extraordinary Manner, so as to form a Beard or Helmet.— 4th. Ho makes them march over the Table at the Word of Command, and what is most surprising, he: will make any other Person's Bees tame in a Quarter of an Hour, and exhibit the above Performances with them, if desired.— Tickets for the Exhibition to be had at the Place of Perfor- mance.— Admittance for Ladies and Gentlemen 2s.
