MONDAY, February 3, 1766 VOL. XLIV. the commons sent a message in writing to them by the Sheriffs and commons, desiring the pe- tition to be sent back to them. Upon the receipt of which message, the Lord- mayor and Board of Aldermen, having read the said petition, and taken the same into consideration, did unanimously agree to reject it, and did return to the message of the Sheriffs and commons an answer in writing, in the following words : " Although the Lord- mayor and Board of Aldermen are una- nimously of opinion, that a law for limiting the duration of parliaments, with proper and necessary provisions, would be useful, yet the terms in which the petition for that purpose, in the name of certain of the commons, lodged in the Tholsel office, are conceived, appear to them so exceptionable, and the present time for their making such an application seeming to them from many circumstances fo improper, they have thought fit, unanimously, to reject the said petition." It is remarkable, that those who have made A practice of smoaking and snuffing these herbs* are never troubled with head- achs, paralytics, defluxions of rheum, nor any superfluous hu- midities, nor need the assistance of glasses for the sight, even in extreme old age."

MADDOCKS. N. B. The Roads are now made exceedingly good, and he intends fiiortly fetting up a Poft- Chaife to accommo- date thofe Gentlemen who may think the 21 Miles be- tween Hereford and the Hay too long a Stage for one Pair of Horfes. tremely dull here, but now we have an ap- J pearance of better times, there being a prof- I pedt of a good crop, and the Spaniards be- I ginning to drop in with their dollars. St. Christopher's, November 4. On Thursday 9 night, the 31ft of October last, a vast number j of people gathered at the tavern of Mr. I Nolans, and about eight o'clock proceeded to | the houfe of Mr. John Hopkins, who was I deputized by Mr. Tuckett, Distributor of the I stamp- papers, whose house contained the stamps. | At their arrival they gave three huzzas, and I demanded the papers, which were delivered I by a woman, and were committed to the I flames, a fire being made before the deputy's I door; and, upon the conclusion of the burn- | ing, Mr. Hopkins was made to swear never I tokbe concerned with stamp papers any more, j nor ever to suffer them to be kept in his j house. Yet the mob were not satisfied with j that, but searched his house through, ' till j they were well convinced they were all deli- | vered up and burnt. Mr. Hopkins was also I made to conduct the mob about three quarters I of a mile in the country, where Mr. Tuckett I was concealed, who surrendered himself to | them, and was brought to the public market I with drums beating, and was there made to I swear never to have any further connections I with stamp papers, and that he had no com- I mission, ( for that was most wanted to be burnt) I and he was forced to submit to do any thing I that they chused. They then went to the Secretary's office, I whereabout four or five quire were ; and, the I keys of the door not being ready, the mob I broke it open, and the stamp paper was burnt I before the office. Mr. Smith, the Secretary, was then conducted home with great accla- mations. They then marched to the Marshal's office, where one quire of the stamps was, which being demanded was delivered up by the Marshal, and burnt before his door. They afterwards marched to the Custom- house, but, upon the Collector's declaring over and over, upon his word of honour, that not one stamp was in his office, they there desisted, but went their tour through the town for the whole night. To- morrow night will be burnt the effigies of the Distributor of the stamps and his deputy, on a gallows. The deputy I received no other damage than having his door pulled down, and a few shingles ripped off his house. After the above affair, many of the inha- bitants of St. Christopher's went to the island of Nevis, where they in the evening of the I ill inst. being joined by the people of Nevis, I went to the Stamp- office, and demanded the I paper, which was given to them, and burnt; I but, the fire not being, as they thought, I large enough, they hauled up one of the —— I barges, and consumed it. LONDON, January 28. Yesterday a packet was received at the Se- I cretary of State's office, with dispatches from I Sir Henry Moor, Governor of New- York, I which, it is said, brought advice that all was I quiet in the colonies at the time when they I were sent off. I We are told that a certain celebrated speech J on a late act is now printing in great numbers, I in order to be transmitted to the westward. And We hear that an eminent lawyer has deli- I vered it as his opinion, that a great patriot, I who spoke against the American stamp duty, I ought to have been sent to the Tower. We are informed that a plan is now settled I between our court and that of Versailles rela- I tive to the future regulation of the Newfound- I land fishery, on such a footing as, it is hoped, I will prevent future disturbances.

THURSDAY ' s POST. IRELAND. Dublin, January 21. sfCfe.^ A/' ltlT a General Assembly held at L J the Tholfel of the city of Dub- ® A f lin, on Friday the 17th of Ja- Jf, nuary inst. a petition of certain V commons, praying, for SLe^ v the reasons therein mentioned, that an annual stipend of 365I. fhould be | granted to Dr. Charles Lucas, having been I presented to the Assembly, and unanimously | rejected by the said Lord- mayor and Board of I Aldermen, a message in writing was sent by I the Sheriffs and commons, in the following I words : " Resolved, That a message be sent to the I Lord- mayor and Board of Aldermen, re- I questing them to concur with and pass a pe- I tition of certain of the commons presented by this Assembly for rewarding the merit and services of Dr. Lucas, one of the Represen tatives of this city in Parliament, with a pub- lic testimony of the city's approbation or his conduct, by granting him an annual stipend." To Which message the Lord- mayor and Board of Aldermen returned an answer in writing in the following words-; " The Lord- mayor and Board of Aldermen, having taken into consideration a petition from certain of the commons, praying an annual stipend of. 365I. to be paid during the city's pleasure to Dr. Charles Lucas, one of their Representa- tives in Parliament, have judged it inexpe- dient to give any countenance to the said pe- tition, as the circumstances which form the present conjuncture are of too much notoriety to leave room to doubt of the motive of such an application made at this time. And there- fore the Lord- mayor and Board of Aldermen, however ready upon all proper occasions, as far as their weight and power may extend, to give every constitutional opposition to any measure really injurious to this country, yet, as the Magistrates of this city are desirous of preserving the peace, harmony, and good or- per thereof, do think themselves bound to dis- Countenance alarms which may disturb the minds of well- intending citizens, and there- fore have rejected the said petition." A petition of certain of the commons having also been presented to the Assembly, praying that instructions should be given by them to their Representatives in Parliament to use their utmost endeavours to have the heads of a bill, brought into the Hon. House of Com- mons, to limit the duration of Parliaments, passed into a law, and several matters having been therein set forth as reasons for agreeing thereto ; before the said Lord- mayor and Board of Aldermen had, in the course of their business, either considered or read the same, To be AFREEHOLD ESTATE, situate upon the River Lug, near the Town of Presteign, in the County of Radnor, let by Lease for 21 Years to .

HERE lieth neither Whig nor Tory, But one who lov'd good wit, good dory, A mummy he, embalm'd with sack, Shall outlive time.— Alas I plump Jack ! The genuine British Herb Tobacco and Snuff, prepared by the original proprietor, and fold only by James Rowley, at St. Paul's Coffee- houfe, London, for thefe three years laft past, may now, by his appointment, be had also of Thomas Stock, Grocer, in Glocester, and of the men who carry this Journal. The tobacco is 5s. per pound, 3s. per half pound, is. 6d. per quarter pound, and the fnuff is. 6d. per canifter. The following is an abstract from the fuc- cinct account of it, which is published by the author, and given gratis to every purchaser of the tobacco or snuff: " It is composed of betony, coltsfoot, eye- bright, lavender, thyme, rosemary buds, and many more of the choicest nervous simples in the whole system of botany. Dr. Spon, a very eminent Physician at Geneva, was the first who prescribed the smoaking of this compo- fition, and had the satisfaction of feeing the good effects of it among his patients; and Dr. Beaufort, about thirty years since, had the like success with it in London. The Polish nobility and gentry constantly mix this to- bacco with their common tobacco, by pre- scription of the famous Dr. Broakenschwerdt, for strengthening the nerves and stomach, and for preserving the fight, to mitigate the heat and strength of the common tobacco, and to render the smell of it fragrant and agreeable, To the PRINTER. SIR, I accounts in your paper and I others of the vast import of oats into the port of London, and the very great exp° rt of wheat from the same port < T> Ck within the same time, it would seem that more care j was taken for the preservation of beasts than I for the human race. I Surely, five shillings the bushel for hard I corn, which will bring the cost: to near double I to make it into bread, is a long price for the I poor manufacturer and husbandman to pay, I who cannot work without eating, nay, whose I family perhaps cannot work, but must eat. I think it is generally allowed that the far- I mer may very well afford to deliver wheat in I London at all times so as to be sold under I five shillings the bushel ; and, if so, why I should a bounty be paid for exporting, to the | encouragement of the growth of wheat, which I is not wanted by the farmer above that price, I and is only of use to the engrossing jobbers, I factors, and exporters of that commodity, to I the enriching a few such dealers, but to the I distrefs of many thousands of industrious peo- j ple, and to the detriment and scandal of the i whole nation. _ I But, as this affair will be more fully dif- I cussed in its proper place, when the several | petitions and remonstrances sent up by the I chief towns in England are examined in an I august assembly, there can be no doubt but I there will be immediate relief given to the I distressed, most probably by a suspension of I exports for a proper time ; and that the price I for stopping the bounty will be fixed at a I lower rate than it is at present. With such I hope I conclude, Sir, Your very humble servant, T. H. Cornwall, in the room of the late John Rich- mond Webb, Esq; and yesterday he took the oaths and his seat in the House of Commons. A treaty of marriage is on foot, and will fpeedily be consummated, between the Right Hon. Lord Mount Stuart and Miss Bowes, of Durham, reckoned the greatest fortune in Europe. We hear that, among other legacies left by the late Earl of Godolphin, he has bequeathed 14,0001. to the Duchess of Newcastle, and half the amount of the rent of St. James's market, of which his Lordship was sole pro- prietor. The other half of the said market his Lordship has left to the Marquis of Car- marthen, eldest fon of the Duke of Leeds. According to the last letters from Bath, Dr. Smollett lay dangerously ill at that place. And The celebrated Mrs. Cibber lies so dan- gerously ill, at her houfe in Scotland- yard, that her life is despaired of. It is somewhat extraordinary that, although wheat is now sold at 4s. 6d. or 5s. per bushel, yet a quartern loaf now sells for 7d. which is at the rate of 9s. 4d. per bushel. Friday laft 47oC. wt of butter was imported from Dublin; and IJOO quarters of wheat, 250 ditto wheat- meai, were exported for Por- tugal, and 300 quarters of wheat, and 500 quarters of wheat- meal, for Madeira. Yesterday there was but a small shew of horned cattle at Smithfield market, but they were chiefly of the prime sort, and sold upon an average seven per cent, dearer than lad week. Sheep were plenty, and sold two- pence in the stone cheaper than last market- day ; but calves and lambs were kept up at an exhorbitant price, and there were but few buyers. This day the long- contested election for a I rector of St. Ann's, Black- friars, was deter- I mined at Westminster hall, by the Right Hon. I the Lord Chancellor, in favour of the Rev. J Mr. Romaine.

Stone Chimney- pieces, and infide Work is compleat ; and the Gardens are skilfully laid out, and well stocked and planted with the best Sort of Fruit- trees, both against the Walls and Espaliers, all healthy and in their Prime of Bearing. Enquire of Valentine Watkins, Cheesemonger, on the Quay, Bristol; or of Mr. Roberts, Attorney at Law, Bath providentially hearing of Mrs. Plunkett, it the Hot- Wells, Bristol, and of the many extraordinary cures fhe ( had performed, I applied to her in June last, and imme- diately put myself under her care. In less than seven weeks she entirely extracted the cancer from my breast, without drawing the least drop of blood, by only the ap- plication of philters. The cancer was of a very large size, and I now keep it in a bottle of spirits to satisfy thofe who are fo unhappy as to labour under the like af- fliction. My breast is now reduced to the usual size, and perfectly healed up; and I now enjoy, by the blessing of God, a found Hate of health, though I was before quite emaciated, RACHAEL REW, of Flax- Bourton, in the County of Somerset. Since the first publication of the above cafe, Mrs. Winscombe, wife of Mr. Winscombe, of Blackwell, in the county of Somerset, who had likewise a cancer ex- tracted from her breast, applied to the printer to desire that her cafe might alfo be published for the good of the public. Her cancer was occasioned by a hurt she received above 30 years ago; but increased So. much within these three years past, that her life was in imminent danger. In this deplorable situation ( he applied to feveral of the fa- culty, who informed her, that they would endeavour to cure her by cutting her ; but that her case was really dan- gerous, as the cancer was spreading with great rapidity towards her neck. In this exigency, she providentially heard of a cure performed by Mrs. Plunkett, on Mrs. Redmond, at Windford, anjl accordingly applied to her ; and by the blessing of God, the cancer was entirely ex- tracted in aboot two months, and she is now restored to a sound state of health. The truth of the aboye may be known by applying at the printing- office in Small- street, Bristol, where Mrs. Plunkett may be heard of; or to the following persons, who have likewife been cured, viz. Mr. Richard Darby, of Carapden, Glocestershire; Mr. Tho. Hyat, of Per- shore, Worcestershire; Mr. John Needham, of Reading, Berks; and Mr. Pearman, of Bray, Berks. Letters di- rected for her ( post- paid) and left at the above office, will be punctually attended to. Whereas it has been falsely reported, that Mrs. Plun- kett would cure none but those who would pay her large sums of money, and through that means several have lost their lives: This is to acquaint the public in general, that she never requires more than people's circumstances will admit, and the poor she cares gratis.

He was crowned the 14th of September, 1747. He was married the nth of December, 1743, to the Princess Louisa of England, who died the 19th of December, 1751; and the 3d of July, 1752, his Majesty married the Princess Julia- Maria, daughter of Duke Ferdinand Albert of Brunswick- Wol- ffenbuttel. His successor is about 17. Rome, Jan. 2. On the 30th ult. died, aged 77, the Chevalier de St. George, after confinement to his house for three years thro: great weakness and infirmity, two years of which he hardly stirred out of his bed- cham- ber. It is not said whether he left any will, but the Cardinal of York has long been in possession of his jewels and other valuable ef- fects, and had the direction of his domestic affairs for fome time. What share his eldest son is likely to have in his late father's family jewels will be hard to say, for we know no- thing of him, nor indeed is he ever spoken of, there having no harmony for a long time subsisted between the brothers ; and moreover it has long been whispered that the elder is an heretick. Farewell then to all support from this Court, which will hardly acknowledge him. Rome, Jan. 8. The remains of the Che- valier de St. George, after lying in state for five days, were carried on the sixth to the church of the Holy Apostles, and yesterday the funeral ceremony was performed in the prefence of the sacred college. Cardinal Al- bani officiated in his pontificalia at the requiem, which was performed by the musicians from the Aposlolic palace. The Pope intended to have assisted, but was prevented by the cold- ness of the weather. In the afternoon the remains were carried to St. Peter's, attended • by most of the religious communities, and this morning the obsequies were again per- formed, and the body deposited in a vault, where it is to continue ' till the intended place try with corn, during the late dearths, that the Pope is obliged to suspend the fitting out of his gallies for this year. Yesterday dispatches were received from his Excellency James Melville, Esq; Governor of the Grenadoes. It is said there have lately been some disturbances there, but 011 what account we have not yet learnt. We hear, that the settlement which Denys Rolle, Esq; hath established in East Florida, is situated on a healthy elevated spot on the ri- ver of St. John, about thirty miles fouth weft from St. Augustine ; and is in a very flourish- ing condition, having in this last season pro- duced plentiful crops of rice, corn, pulse, and cotton ; besides a variety of melons, cucum- bers, and things of that kind, and all sorts of garden stuff'. By a strict amity, which he hath cemented with, the neighbouring Indians, his settlers are fixed in perfect security, and have already a considerable stock of cattle, milch- cows, hogs, and all sorts of poultry. The river abounds with fish ; and the woods with deer, turkies, an. d many sorts of wild fowl. Large groves of oranges, grapes, and honev in good plenty, are the natural productions of that part of the country. It is said a scheme is now under considera- tion, which has actually received the appro- bation of the most able judges, for raising a fund towards discharging annually a confi- derable part of the national debt without im- posing any additional burthen upon our ma- nufactures or commerce. Both Houses of Parliament sat ' till after ele- ven on Tuesday night; and late late again last: night. ' Tis faid a certain great man in the law has told a great personage that Mr. speech has done his country more harm than any thing that has happened for ages past. His Grace the Duke of Beaufort, who lately came of Age, hath taken the oaths and. his seat in the House of Peers, John Darker, Esq; Treasurer of St. Bar- tholomew's hospital, is elected Member of Parliament for the borough of Leicester, in the room of George Wright, Esq; deceased, and not Bakewell, Esq, as mentioned in some of the morning papers. It is remark- able, that out of four Members which the county and town of Leicester send to Parlia- ment, three of them have died since the last prorogation thereof. Petitions have been presented from the glove- sellers-, and manufacturers of that commodity, residing in this metropolis, and from the lea- ther- dressers and sellers, to prevent the clan- destine importation of foreign gloves and mitts. And Similar petitions have been presented from the glove- makers of Worcester and Hereford. The quantity of corn exported from Ports- mouth within these last four months amounts to upwards of zo; ooo quarters. It is said, that the prohibition of the expor- tation of grain will commence on Monday next, and continue ' till Michaelmas- day. Tuesday bread sell a'a whole assize, or 2d, in a peck loaf.. It is said, that the corn distilleries will not be stopped this season ; as it is Imagined, pre- venting the exportation will be sufficient to cause plenty at home; and it is thought mo- utr" cannot hold its present high price, as the of interment is ready. fifty years in this capital.

SIR, 1 T inserting the following in your paper, <- which I think myself in duty bound to pub- lish for the good of the public, especially as fcine ' will not allow that cancers can be infallibly cured without incision, you will very much oblige, ' Yours, & c. " I was afflicted with a most inveterate cancer in my breast for 14 years, in which time it grew to fuch a fize that I could easily rest my chin thereon. I tried all the mans which could be procured, without any effect, ' till LONDON, January 30. It is reported that the intended marriage of his present Danish Majesty with her Royal Highness Princess Caroline- Matilda of Eng- land will certainly take place at the expiration of the mourning for the late King. They write from L'Orient, that large quan tiltes of military and ordnance stores are now shipping there for Pondicherry, and other French factories in the East- Indie's. And Letters from Barbadoes, of the 27th of October last, mention that the French had cleared great part of the high lands of St. Lucia, and erected several batteries on the sea- coast. They write from Lisbon, that the Court of Portugal hath been several millions' of dollars losers by the late establishment of their India company ; and if credit may be given to some advices from the said quarter, ' proposals were Li3 to have been made by a certain maritime power, for the purchase of all the Portuguese Settlements in the East. They write from Civita Vecchia, that the ecclesiactical treasury is fo exhausted by the sums lately drawn from it, to supply the coun- laifes late advance on that article was owing to th « expectation of the malt distilleries being stop- ped. A private gentleman in the county of Car- marthen has presented a petition to an august assembly for making a navigable canal, at his own expence, from Gwendraeth river, near the town of Kidwelly, to the great forest and • Pwl Llygood in the said county, for; the more speedy conveying of coals from the said place to the counties and places adjoining. And it is said that a plan is being concerted by fome public- spirited gentlemen to make the river Teme, in the county of Worcester, na- vigable, which, if carried into execution, will be of great advantage to the interior part of that county. _ It is remarked as a pretty extraordinary circumstance, . and perhaps without example, that, a greater number of persons of high birth have died within thefe eight or nine months past than has been known within the same space of time ever before. Those more par- ticularly mentioned on this occasion are, the Princess Mary- Louisa of Hesse- Cassel, the Duke of Parma, the Emperor, the Margra- vine of Brandenbourg- Schwedt, the Duke of Cumberland, the Dauphin, Prince Frederick- Wiiliam, the King of Denmark, and the Che- valier de St. George. Yesterday Mr. Serjeant Whitaker kissed the King's hand, on being appointed one of the ' Welch Judges, in the room of the late John Richmond Webb, Esq; Political Anecdote.— A celebrated patriot, re- markable for the excellent structure of the in- side of his head, took it into his mind lately that the outside wanted a new covering. Being at his seat at H , in Kent, when the im- portant thought struck him, a substantial hatter of the place was sent for, and orders given him to prepare, without delay, a hat of a most extraordinary size, both in crown and brim, the dimensions of which were laid down with great punctuality. The hatter, on his return home, Concluding from the uncommon cir- cumference of the hat bespoke that the great C r must either be out of his wits, or at least that he could not mean to encumber his head with such an enormous covering, after a short consultation with his men, re- solved to deviate a little from his directions, and to make the patriot's hat one inch less in the crown, and one in the brim, than had been prescribed to him. The beaver when finished was carried home, but being pro- duced, instead of that approbation it was hoped it would meet with, was returned with a reprimand to the tradesman for not knowing better than to disobey orders. The directions given before were again repeated, and the strictest injunctions added not to deviate one single point from them. Experience had now opened honest Mr. Felt's eyes, A hat, or rather an umbrella, was- prepared of the very exact dimensions prescribed Being carried home, the patriot seized it with rapture, clapped it on his head, strutted with it about the room, and, flapping the brim all round, commended the hatters punctuality in fol- lowing orders. The latter, too strongly moved at the scene, burst out into a violent laugh in the C - r's face. " Sirrah, what do ye laugh at?"—" At you, Sir."—" At me, Sir! What do ye see in me to laugh at ?—" Only your hat, Sir. My hat, Sir ! Well, and what of that ?"- » I believe never such a one was made before, excepting once."—" And who was that for ?'-< » -" Oliver Cromwell, please your honour.' V-" Bravo ! ( cried the C r) now I see thou art a clever fellow; sit down and drink a glass with me." Here the anecdote ends. We have only to say in confirmation of it, that we believe there is not a Scotchman in town who will not Vouch for the truth of the story.

He will exhibit the following Articles, 1st, He eats red- hot Coals out of the Fire as natural as Bread, 2dly, He licks with his naked Tongue red- hot Tobacco Pipes flaming with Brimstone. 3dly, He takes a large Bunch of Deal Matches, lights them all together, and holds them in hii Mouth ' till the Flame is extinguished. 4thly, He takes a red- hot Heater out of the Fire, licks it with his naked Tongue several Times, and carries it round the Room between his Teeth. 5thly, He fills his Mouth with red- hot Charcoal, and broils a Slice of Beef or Mut- ton on his Tongue ; and any Person may blow the Fire with a Pair of Bellows at the same Time.

One of the great questions relative to Ame- rica, viz. Whether the British Parliament have a right to lay taxes on the colonies, it is said, will be determined the beginning of next week. But The other great question, viz. Whether the Stamp act shall be repealed, it is whispered, will not be determined for some time, at least not for some weeks. The Gentleman of the Law who moved for sending Mr. P. to the Tower, was Sir F. N. From Dublin we hear the animosities be- tween the Common Council of that city and the Board of Aldermen run so very high, on account of a refusal which the latter gave to a motion for settling a pension of 3651, a year on Dr. Lucas, one of the city Representatives, that justice has been frequently interrupted, and the Magistrates publicly insulted in the streets by the fury of the ignorant populace. By a private letter from Copenhagen, we hear, that about an hour before his Majesty's decease, he called the Prince Royal, his suc- cessor, close to his bed- side, and taking him by the hand, addressed him to the following purport: " My dear son, you will soon be the King of a flourishing people ; but remem- ber, that to be a great Monarch, ' tis absolute- ly necessary to be a good man. Have justice and mercy, therefore, constantly before your eyes, and above all things reflect, that you were born for the welfare of your country, and not your country created for your mere emolument. In short, keep to the golden rule of doing as you would be done by ; and whenever you issue an order as a Sovereign, examine how far you would be willing to obey such an order, had you been but a subject yourself." Yesterday the Judges met in Lord Chief Justice Mansfield's Chamber, Westminster- Hall, and chose their respestive circuits for the ensuing Lent assizes. Northern. Lord Mansfield, Justice Bathurst. Norfolk. Lord Camden, Baron Adams. Midland. Lord Parker, Justice Yates. Home. Justice Clive, Baron Smythe. Oxford. Justice Wilmot, Baron Perrot. Western. Justice Gould, Justice Aston. An able Lawyer, it is said, has it now un- der consideration, whether the intention, and even virtual meaning, of that Article in the Treaty of Union, which prohibits the eldest sons of Scotch Peers from being elected in that country to represent any Part of the Com- mons- in Parliament, is not evaded in the first point, and defeated in the second, by so many of them being elected to represent the. Com- mons of England; because if found other- wise, some means will become needful to se- cure to South Britain its due Legislative weight, which begins to be not a little en- dangered from the frequent elections here of Scotchmen to that very high trust. We hear that the gentlemen of the law are forming a society for the benefit of their widows ; which establishment is to be made under the direction of some of the most emi- nent personages of that profession. A proprietor in the East- India stock having, at the last election for Directors, made a trans- fer of 500I. to qualify him for a vote, he some time after called upon his friend, and demand- ed a re- transfer of his property. Upon which the other, with a world of composure, repli- ed, " Sir, if you were fool enough to ima- gine that I should be guilty of perjury, merely to pay you a compliment, you were damna- bly mistaken. I count it no brcach of honesty to punish a man who wanted me to be a vil- lain ; and if I ever hear a single syllable from you again on this subject, I shall publish an account of the transaction in every paper in England, and leave the world to judge which of us two is the greatest scoundrel." By a gentleman who lately had much con- versation with Mr. Wilkes we are informed, that he continues in good health, and in pos- session of his usual vivacity. He speaks very indifferently of , that they have un- MONDAY's POST.

GLOCESTER, February 3, The article in our last relative to the repeal of the Cyder tax is corroborated in the fol- lowing paragraph taken from the Sherborne Mercury :—- " We have the pleasure to assure our readers, that Sir George Yonge, Bart, has sent a letter to the Right Worshipful the Mayor of Exeter, signifying that all the Mem- bers of the cyder counties had waited on the Chancellor of the Exchequer concerning the repeal of the Cyder acts, and that it' was certain those unpopular acts would be totally repealed, whereby the growers and makers of cyder, and those who buy cyder for their own consumption, will be freed from the payment of any duty ; but that a new act would be made, subjecting those who buy cyder to sell again, in any manner whatever, to the excise laws, with an additional duty. Letters to the same purport have been received from the Knights of the Shire for the county of Devon, and from John Walter, Esq; one of the Mem- bers for Exeter." We hear from Newport, in Monmouthshire, that last Thursday evening arrived there the sloop Friends, belonging to Mess. Kemeys and Co. from Gravesend, in seven days, which is reckoned a remarkable passage for this or any other season of the year. She is now. un- loading, and will load again for London im- mediately. Ships arrived at Bristol, King George, Burch, from Jamaica and Cork ; Success, Hawkin, from Lisbon; Kitty, Browning, from Bilboa ; Merry, Sinclair, from Glasgow j Prince William, Wyllie, and New Blessing, Leard, from Dublin ; Britannia, Evans, from, Cork. %* The Freehold Estate situate upon the River Lug, ( inserted in the firft Page of this Journal) will be sold by Auction, at the Castle- Inn in Presteign, on Monday the 10th Inst. between the Hours of ten and twelve in the Forenoon. *\* The Printer of this paper wants an Ap- prentice.— A sober, well- dispofed Lad, who has had a little Grammar- school education, will be taken on easy terms.

In this Work the Necessity of deviating from the pre- sent Mode of Practice is candidly considered, and reason- ably accounted for. The Reader is also informed of a new discovered Medicine, and its comparative Excellence with all other Remedies is fairly examined and explained. This Medicine is an Essence, a few Drops of which, ta- ken in a Glass of Water, is a Dose; and, in slight Cases, in eight or ten Days the Cure is effected, without the least Inconveniency to the Patient, The above Discourse is delivered in a plain, easy, and familiar Manner, being principally intended for the Pe- rusal of such Persons as may be now afflicted, or, what is worse, have been ill cured of the Disorder therein treat- ed of; and further, that they may ascertain, with some Certainty, whether any Remains of the Poison are still lurk- ing in the Blood, or whether left labouring under the bane- . ful Effects of strong Mercurial Medicines.— Lit fuch Per- fons well obferve the Opinion of the ingenious Dr. Peter Shaw, Physician to his late Majesty, via. " That fre- quent flying Pains, Head- Achs, and other Symptoms, occasioned either by the Mercury, or the Relicts of the Distemper, often continued after a supposed Cure of the Infection." The Medicine is sold at the Printing- Office in Glo- cester, and by the Distributors of this Journal, in Bottles of 3s. and 5s. Price. A Label is fixed on the Bottles, signed by the Doctor in his own Hand- writing, as also full Directions, with Rules for Diet and Exercise, that the Patient might conduct himself thro' the Cure with Ease, Safety, and Secrecy: However, if required, the Doctor will give his Advice either in Perfon, or by Letter. ALSO, At ths Printing- Office in Glocester, of C. Pugh, in Hereford, and of the Distributors of this Journal, may be had, For Disorders incident to the STOMACH. SOME Time ago a Physician of diltin- guished Merit at Paris communicated to Dr. Becket tne Preparation of a bitter Tincture, which he had long proved to be a most extraordinary Remedy in curing the many grievous Disorders that afflict the. tomach, The Doctor has since made repeated Trials or its Virtues, and has not only found it to be a perfeCl innocent, but a moil efficacious Medicine, it having not failed in one single Instance of giving great Relief to the Patient, and in numberless Cases, it hath performed a perfect Cure. On these Recommendations it is now first published, and may be had at the Printing- Office in Glocester, and of the Distributors of this Journal, in Bottles at zs, each, with proper Directions. * *** To expatiate on the many Disorders that afflict the Stomach would answer no. Purpose to the Patient, therefore let it suffice to say, that as they mostly arise from a Relaxation or Weakness, so these bitter Drops by their grateful and strengthening Qualities, recover all the lost Powers, at the Return of which the grievous Ene- mies are expelled, such as sharp sour Humours, Wind, & c. & c. Weaknesses occasioned by too free Living, and all those disagreeable Sensations'of Sickness, Reachings, Fullness, and Pain.— They have also been found remark- ably useful after a Debauch of Drinking, & c. being taken in a Glass of Wine and Water, or Brandy and Water, and repeated every four or five Hours, Restorative CORDIAL DROPS, Discovered by Dr. J. BECKET, A NEW MEDICINE. IT is a Cordial, and that of the highest Na- ture. It circulates the Juices, enlivens the Spirits, recreates the faculties both of Body and Mind, effica- cioully nourishes the whole vital System, dissipates all Sorts of Weaknesses and Imbecility, and restores Strength and Vigour to a decayed Constitution In its Operation it co- operates with Nature, without forcing the Vessels;, and what greatly adds to the Praise of this singular Me- dicine is, that it with great Certainty removes the Causes of Impotency in one Sex, and Sterility or Barrenne'fs in the other. The Truth of its having this remarkable Ef- fect is confirmed by the recent Informations the. Author daily receives. The Doctor may be consulted, either personally or by Letter directed to him, at his House in Red- lion- square. For a further Account of this valuable Medicine see the Author's Essay on the Venereal Disease, & c Thefe Cordial Drops are sold by Mr. Raikes, Printer, in Glo- cefter, in Bottles at One Guinea each. The Doctor's Name is fixed on the Bottle in his own Hand- writing ; with proper Directions. BAUME De VIE.

This noble Medicine has effected more astonishing Cures all over Europe than any other Remedy whatever. It is superior to any other Remedy in all Kinds of Ob- structions, proceeding from a depraved Digestion, and ill secreted Chyle.

TH E following Extraordinary Cure of JOSEPH FEYRAC, Esq; Efficiently proves the Efficacy of MAREDANT's DROPS, ( prepared only by JOHN NORTON, Surgeon,) superior to any Medicins hitherto known. / To Mr. Norton, Surgeon, in Golden- Square. - ^ I LONDON, Sept. 10, 1765. T Have at laft the very great Pleasure of acquainting y « u that I am perfectly recovered from my late Illness by taking your Drops, and persisting in them since the id of February last; as this Remedy must be of great Benefit to the Public, in Justice to them and to you, I here send you the Particulars of my Distemper, for the Perusal of all fuch who chuse to be informed of the Certainty of their Effects. In the Years 175S and 1759, 1 was attacked by a vio- lent Scurvy, having no Part free from large Pimples, Scurf, or Ulcers, but the Palms of my Hands, my Face and Breast, attended by a total Want of Appetite, Sleep, and Spirits, to such a Degree I was afflicted, that I wish- ed myself dead, having followed many different Prescrip- tions to no Manner of Purpose •• From this Situation I was relieved by an old Woman, who undertook to cure me, and accordingly this was carried off by the Juice of Herbs, preceded by violent Bleedings, followed by Diet Drinks and outward Applications, when I was to all outward Appearance well for about a Year, but ever since I have been ailing without any visible Signs, being greatly dis- tressed by Want of Sleep, great Lowness of Spirits, ami Loss of Appetite ; when, about sixteen Months since, I was suddenly taken Ill, with the most sharp and acute Pains in my Back and Side; this was followed by violent Inflammations in my Eyes, swelling of Limbs, & c. I kept my Room three Months before I could stir, was sent to Bath, found a bad Effect from the Waters, a Hu- mour fell into my Heel, I was ordered to pump, but all to no Purpose, at last I could neither walk nor ride, when I was advised to blister it Half a Pint of the most corrosive Matter came out, but - was thirty Days a healing on Account of a violent Scorbutic Habit the Surgeon then saw I was in; as soon as healed I went out, but re- turned Home with my Leg greatly inflamed, net able to Hand upon it or kneel, I was then kept in Poultices for a Month from my Knee to my Heel before i could walk, I then to all Appearance was outwardly well, but still violently low in Spirits, Want of Appetite', & c. It happened then that I read your Advertisement in the Bath. Papers, and making the strictest Enquiry c- i the Sport of ATWOOD'S Cure, I found it attested by every one there; I came to'London the latter End of January last, have taken your Drops ever since the ill of Februa- ry ; a Week after I began it drove out the Humour in the Small of my Leg, and in different Parts from the Heel to somewhat beneath the Calf, and upon the Back of both my Hands; the Matter that came out of my Leg was so corrosive that the Cloth that was on when washed became full of Holes, the Matter or Spots could not be washed out, but burnt the Piece out; this Humour has gradually come out, crusted, and then peeled off, and has slowly decreased in Violence until it came to meer Water, and is now perfectly healed ; my Hands were shocking to the Sight, but dried by Degrees, then peeled off," more came: out and went off in like Manner successivtly, but have been well long since, and I am now well recovered, my Strength is returned, my Spirits good, my Stomach the same, and sleep well; in fhort, I thought myself so bad af obliged to leave the Service, despairing entirely of a perfect Recovery. I have nothing further to add, than that I am most sincerely obliged to you not only for the Recovery of my Health, for your very genteel and disinterested Behaviour, but also for your plain Dealing and Truth. My Distem- . per having taken the Course you . have from Time to Time told me it would, and if it is in my Power ever to be of any Service to you, I shall be happy in any Oppor- tunity of convincing you how much I am, Sir, Your very obliged humble Servant, JOSEPH FEYRAC. Lately Lieutenant- Colonel to his Majesty's 18th or Royal Regiment of Foot in Ireland. Any Person still doubtful of the Efficacy of this Me- dicine may ( by applying to Mr. Norton, Surgeon, the West Side of Golden- Square, near Piccadilly, where these Drops are fold in Bottles of 6s. each) be fully con- vinced of their good Effect, by being referred to above 100 People of Credit, who have been cured of the Leprosy, Scurvy, Ulcers, the Evil, Fistulas, Piles, long- continued Inflammations of the Eyes, and every other Disorder an- ting from a Foulness in the Blood. They perfect Digestion amazingly, create an Appetite} and may be taken in any Season without the leaft Incon- venience or Hindrance of Business. N. B.
