To Mr. NORTON, Surgeon, in Golden- square, SIR, HAVING been for several Years past, much afflicted with a scorbutic Disorder which shewed itself externally on my Shoulders, Neck, and Ears, insomuch that my Ears have been often ulce- rated and my Neck overspread with Scales, like the Scales of a Fish ; I had almost a continued Pain and Disorder, with a Pain at my Stomach; I lost my Appe- tite, my Complexion changed to a yellow Hue, and in short I was in a very bad Slate of Health, but am now by the Use of your Maredant's Drops, perfectly recove- red : You may shew this Letter to any of your Patients, or make what other Use of it you please, as I think in Gratitude I ought to acknowledge to you, and to the World, how much I owe to your Medicine the Reco- very of my Health, from that of a very bad Consti- tution. I am, With great Esteem, Your obedient and very humble Servant, July 3, 1766.

SIR, THE Papers, which retale the News of the Day, having announced the Death of Mr. Archibold Bawer, I have met with great Numbers who are ex- tremely desirous to know whether he died a Pro- testant or a Papist. If the former, his Friends owe it to the World, to the Deceased, and to them- selves, to give the most circumstantial and au- thentic Proof of a Fact which must at once silence and disgrace the authors of so virulent an Opposition as he had to struggle with from the Jesuits and their Abettors, the jesuited Au- thors of the several Pamphlets intended to blacken the Man, and disparage the Work he was carrying on. If the latter, there will be no Occasion to be particular as to the Proof. A profound Silence will answer all the Ends of more explicit Information. Such Characters are best covered up in Darkness and Oblivion. If any one of your Correspondents can bear an honourable Testimony to the edifying Depar- ture of a Gentleman, who, all Considerations of Religion apart, was an useful Member of the Republic of Letters, it will be doing a ne- cessary Piece of Justice 10 his Memory to pub- lish it. If after all his solemn Professions to the contrary he died in Communion with the Church of Rome, an Account of his Depar- ture would edify nobody but the two Count Douglasses, the one at or about Rome. Where the other is, is not so well known to, SIR, Your humble Servant, CURIOUS. To the Printer of the Public Advertiser. SIR, WHEN I went into the Country about two Months ago, I desired Philocolon to postpone abusing me in the public Papers till my Return to Town ; hoping also to suffer no indecent or uncandid Treatment through the Channel of your Paper, from your usual Can- dour and Decorum ; but so it is, that this abu- sive unmannerly Puffer, under various Signa- tures, has been admitted to call me Names too indecent to be repeated, to charge me with Va- nity, and to use other indecent Practices, in or- der to lessen my Credit as a Writer, as the best Arguments he can give in answer to what I have advanced in several Letters to you, concerning Unanimity in Church and State, proving it to be both desirable and practicable. As to my Abilities as a Scribbler I declare to you, that it is of very little Concern to me what any one thinks of them, so that my Style and Sentiments appear clear, short, decent, and rational, a- greeable to that Subject and what Letters for Publication in daily News papers require ; and I should imagine the Liberty of the Press, for the sake of Information, as well as Instruction, would tolerate mere Matters of Fact, and Ques- tions that are proper for the Inspection of the Public. Should I be mistaken in my political Notions, or in the Manner of expressing them, surely every Attempt to serve the Public de- serves a little better Treatment than what this furious Party man has been pleased to bestow on such as differ from him in Opinion. How- ever, the Feeling I have for Truth and my Country oblige me to persist in my Opinion, that the Man who would divide his Fellow- Ci- tizens in their Opinions of religious or civil Li- berties, is the Pest of Society; for those in Authority should unanimously defend the whole Republic, and that such as would consult only a Part, and desert the rest, would promote Dis- cord and Sedition; which as some adhered to he People, others to the Nobility, but none to the whole, in the Greek and Roman Repub- lic, ended in the most pestilent and destructive Wars ; a Course not to be endured by a sober and valiant Patriot, or any one that deserves a Place in the Government. It is notorious, that Disputes and Divisions amongst those entrusted with the Administration of public Affairs have been, and may shall be, very pernicious to public Concerns. Is it not then desirable that a Coalition of Parties should prevail? Surely none but bigotted or selfish Party- men will deny it. They indeed for pri- vate Ends, as if there were any Danger of lul- ling the People into a State of fatal Security, would keep up Party- Disputes, and mislead them from being lulled to a peaceable Submis sion, and relying, as their best Security, on the Laws and Constitution of their Country, when every body must know Right and Wrong to be the only Objects of Dispute in these Matters. Is it then impracticable to convince the People that the general Good is the true Interest of every Individual, and that Places and Pension's properly belong only to Persons of extraordi- nary Virtues, Capacity, and Deserts ? I say no, if Party Writers would attempt it, and perhaps in that Case there would be more Places and Employments, than of Persons ready to assume them. But says B. S. a Coalition of Parties is only to be devoutly wished, and I will venture to add, that it ought at this Time devoutly to be attempted. To prevent an Union in Church Matters, Utis makes use of the usual Bugbears the Pope and P—- t— r; but this stale Argament is too ridiculous to require any Notice ; for every ho- nest Man of Sense, I will venture to assert, will think a Union in the Church not imprac- ticable, if proper Concessions were made on all Sides, and that such an Union might be a very great Step towards a Coalition of Parties under the present happy Establishment, without the Aid of any foreign Bishop or other Pretender. It is also certain that the Legislators of our own, and every other Country of all Persuasions, would effect an Union in civil and religious Matters in their respective States, and it would else have been impracticable to form, and when formed long to preserve Society, without an Union of the Individuals under one and the same Government in civil and religious Mat- ters. Is it not then strange, that any English- man should contend for such Divisions, unless he would divide the People, in order to employ a Part of them to beggar and enslave the rest. He is very much mistaken, if any one thinks that I entertain any Opinions prejudicial to the Presbyterian Dissenters; for there are I hope many good People of all Persuasions; but it is still highly to be wished, that all Persons, who live under the same Government, would en- deavour to get rid of Prejudice, that they might see these Objects in their proper Light, and God give us an Understanding and Disposi- tion of Heart fit for it. I am, SIR, Dublin, Sept. 23. Your humble Servant, SYNDIC. Epistle to a Gentleman who had long provided for the Author. FOrgive me, Sir, if I once more Your Patience, and your Aid implore, Nor think my Suit is rude; For well you know there is no Law, To keep Necessity in Awe ; Then humbly I intrude. II. True is that Proverb now I find, " When out of Sight, then out of Mind," St. John is twice near past ; Since Fortune first my Hopes did feed With better Days I thought indeed It was too good to last. III. For she's a Lass that ne'er can fix, And who can help her playing Tricks On Mortals here below ; The Man of Wit, and simple Clown, Even GEORGE himself who wears the Crown, Her Disappointments know, IV- All this contented I can bear, While other People have their Share ; But still there's worse behind : Remember, Sir, when Fortune smil'd, You bade, me get my Wife with Child, Since Madam is so kind. . V And ' Faith I took you at your Word, My Rib the joyful Tydings heard, In Love we lost Despair; No Galley- Slave e'r work'd so hard, - As I unthinking flatter'd Bard, To multiply my Care. VI. For new my Case your Pity claims, The certain Marks of pregnant Dames My Spouse begins to carry More Troubles stare me in the Face, Expences threaten me apace, Sure none but Madmen marry VII. But if for Life the Child's design'd, O where shall it a Patron find, In you or Mr. R de ? Say, must I lay it at his Feet, Or bear it to Southampton- street, Since both have done the Deed ? VIII. And when its Tongue, unskill'd as yet In Speech, at Liberty is set, By Nature's wise Decree; O may its little winning Arts Be sure to touch your gen'rous Hearts, In pleading hard for me ! IX. And should the prattling Efforts meet In Virtue's Breast a kind Retreat, And send sufficient Pelf; My grateful Pray'rs shall ever be To bless the Hand that favours me To keep the Brat myself. X. That Courtiers, who on Kings depend, Will promise what they ne'er intend Is made a standing Jest ; The well- known Pride of Mr. R- . de To help Distress in Time of Need, Still makes me hope the best. INTELLIGENCE EXTRAORDINARY. THEY write from Leith, that there was shipped at that Port, on the — ult.. on board the Jockey, Charles Douglas, Master, freighted for London with Scotch Pebbles, a curious and ac- curate Model, in Plaister of Paris, of THE CAVE OF FAMINE, with all its Decorations and Appendages, even to the Figure of the Goddess, as described by the late Reverend and ingenious Mr. Charles Churchill. It is said to be taken at the Expence of, and consigned to a Right Honourable Patron and Connoisseur in All the fine Arts of France and Italy, but more particularly these. of his own Country. It is designed, not only as a Pattern of tasty Grotto- Work in the several Places of his L p's Re, sidence, but likewise to answer the political Pur- poses of confining and taming the Seditious who are apt to rave after Liberty, Plenty, Privileges of various Kinds, with which paltry Scrubs cannot safely be trusted Experiment, it is said, will be tried upon the Rioters in some Counties, and as there ia no Doubt of its Sue- cess, it is probable that before the End of the Year, we may have one of these elegant and useful Mansions, hewn out under the Direction of the R. H. Importer, in every county in Eng- land. Saturday arrived a Mail from Flanders. Genoa, Sept. 6. MR. Boyer, Envoy from France, is to arrive here after the Vacation, when the lesser Council, which is to consist of not less than one hundred and thirty Members, will directly assemble to treat of a Peace between our Repub- lic and the Rebels cf Corsica. Vienna, Sept. 17. Their Highnesses the Arch- Dukes underwent, the Day before Yesterday, at Schonbrum, an Examination on the Elements of the Latin Tongue, and the different Classic Authors. The Empress Queen assisted at it with several Personages whom her Majesty had chosen to accompany her to this Exercise, and who were Witnesses of the Judgment and Pene- tration which those Princes displayed on this Occasion, which furnish us in Time to come with the most flattering Hopes. , From the Corsican Gazette, published by Authority ' cf the Supreme Government of the Island. Corte. THE Count de Marbeuf, Mareschal des Camps, and Commander in Chief of the French Troops which are in Garrison in this Island, having made a Tour to review his different Detachments, payed a Visit to this Ci- ty, where he was received with all possible Re- spect, was lodged with all his noble Train in our Convent of St. Francis, and both at his Ar- rival and Departure he was saluted with a Dis- charge of Cannon from the Castle. On the 13th of April, by the Mediation of the Count de Marbeuf, an Exchange of Pri- soners was concluded on between the Republic of Genoa and this State. The Ceremony was performed under the Walls of Furiani j Signor Barbaggi being commissioned to act in behalf of his Exccllency our General. It is a Condi- tion in this Exchange, that none of the Prisoners of either Side shall be employed upon actual Service while the Troops of France remain in the Island. It is remarkable, that of the Corsican Prisoners there have perished in the Prisons of Genoa, in the Space of three Years, 103, for the most Part young robust Men, who have died of mere Want, and of 56 who have been kept alive, by the generous and pious Cure of an old Jesuit Father, one died on Shipboard, three hardly Survived their Landing at Bastia, and the rest are in so bad a Way that they cannot hope to enjoy long their regained Liberty. On the other Hand,, of the Genoese Prisoners, taken by us in much greater Numbers, only five or six have died in our Prisons. Some Time ago an English Vessel laden with Barley coming from Sicily was shipwrecked near to Portovecchio, bur the Crew and Part of the Cargo had the good Fortune to be saved. When the News of this Misfortune was brought to General Paoli, his Excellency immediately dis- patched a Person of Distinction, with a Detach- ment of Militia, to give all possible Assistance to the English Sailors. From the LONDON GAZETTE. St. James's, Octobcr 4. ON Wednesday the 1st instant, the Even- ing the Ceremony of the espousals, or Contract of Marriage, between his Majesty Christian the VIIth, King of Denmark, ( repre- sented by his Royal Highness the Duke of York, his Procurator) and her Royal Highness the Princess Caroline Mathilda, his Majesty's youngest Sister, was solemnly performed in the Great Council Chamber here, by his Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury. The next Morning early her Majesty the Queen of Denmark, with her Attendants and Retinue, set out from Carl- ton House for Harwich, where her Majesty ar- rived on Thursday last, about Four o'Clock in the Afternooon, and intended to embark on board the Mary Yacht for Holland, as soon as the Wind should be favourable. St. Ildephonso, Sep], 15. Advices are just re- ceived, by the American Packet, of a great Earthquake in the Isle of Cuba, which has overturned and dismantled the City of St. Jago, in which very happily not above Forty Lives were lost : But it was Scarcely felt at the Ha- vannah. Copenhagen, Sept. 23. Count Horn, the Swe- dish Ambassador, arrived here on the 16th inst. accompanied by nine Cavalliers d'Ambassade. He notified his Arrival to the foreign Ministers on the 18th, and Yesterday had his first Au- dience of the King and the Royal Family, who removed to Copenhagen for this Purpose; where they are to remain till the Departure of the Princess Royal.

Dr. Brooks, preached before his Majesty, their Royal Highnesses the Dukes of York and Cumberland, the Princess of Brunswick, & c. at the Chapel Royal, St. James's. The Sword of State was carried to and from Chapel by Lord Ashburnham. Extract of a Letter from Harwich, dated last Fri- day Morning. " Her Danish Majesty got to Harwich exactly a Quarter after Four o'Clock. The Wind be- ing at N. E. it was not thought proper for her Majesty to embark. She then went to Mr. Da- vis's, Collector of the Customs, dined, Supped, and lay there and this Morning embarked, at half past Eleven, with her whole Retinue, tho' the Wind is contrary, and they are still lying in the Road. Her Majesty was preceded by Col. Desaguliers, and another Gentleman, in a Coach and Six. Mr. Reed, Clerk of the Sta- bles, had Direction of the Relays of Horses ; and the entire Care of her Majesty's Person and the Embarkation was committed to Col. Desa- guliers. Count Bothmar, and Attendants, fol- lowed in another Coach and Six. " Her Majesty was dressed in a Bloom colour with white Flowers. Wherever she passed, the earnest Wishes of the People were for her Health, and praying to God to protect from the Perils of the Sea. An easy Melancholy at Times seemed to affect her on account of leaving her Family and the Place of her Birth ; but up- on the whole, She carried an Air of Serenity and Majesty, which exceedingly moved every one that beheld her. " The whole was conducted with the greatest Attention ; and must do great honour to those Gentlemen who had the Management of it, as no Accident happened ; nor were they the least retarded on the Road. " The Military hold themselves in Readiness in both Essex and Suffolk, in case there should be any Riots ' We hear that some extraordinary Difpatches were received on Friday at St. James's, from the Court of Brunswic. It is said that the Hereditary Prince of Bruns- wic wiil arrive in England before the Meeting of Parliament. We hear the Earl of Shelburne's House, late Lord Bute's, in Berkeley- Square, is going to be purchaSed by his Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland. His Grace the Duke of Norlhumberland is the first nobleman that has been created to that high Title since the Reign of King George the First, except those of the Royal Family. This morning early his Grace the Duke of Kingston set out from his House in Arlington- street for his Seat at Thorsby in Nottingham- shire. Yesterday his Grace the Duke of Dorset set out from his House in Arlington- street, St. James's, for Knowle in Kent. Yesterday the Hon. Richard Rigby, Esq; set out from his House in St. James's Place, for his Seat near Manningtree in Essex. Extract of a Letter from Dublin, Sept. 27. " It is with Pleasure we hear, that a very great Personage has declared, that for the fu- ture no Places or Pensions will be granted in England upon the Establishment of this King- dom, either for Life or Years." Part of a Letter from Paris. ' On Tuesday next, Sept. 30, Lord George Lenox, notwithstanding what has been said in Some of your Papers concerning his con- tinuing Plenipotentiary, takes Leave of the French Court, this Post of Honour being certainly conferred on a Gentleman arrived from Madrid. His Lordship purposes spend- ing a Month with the Duke of Richmond at Aubigny, and then proceeds to England.' Yesterday Morning early one of the most dreadful Storms of Rain, Thunder, and Light- ning, happened that ever was known in the Memory of Man, and the Damage done thereby is incredible. Many Chimnies were thrown down in the High Grounds at the West End of the Town, where the Storm was very violent. John Hill, a Watchman of High Holborn, de- clares, that about Two o'Clock a Ball of Fire fell near his Stand, that the Earth trembled un- der him, and that there was so great a Smell of Sulphur, that he was near being suffocated. The Ships at Anchor below Bridge received very great Damage Yesterday Morning; several of them were drove from their Anchors and run foul of each other, and some had their Masts shivered by the Lightning, so that they must be repaired before they can proceed on their Voy- ages. It is said, that the embanking of the River from Paul's Wharf to Essex Stairs in a strait Line will soon take Place, to the great Advan- tage of the Proprietors of Wharfs, the Naviga- tion of the River, and the Health of the Inhabitants thereabouts. We could wish to see such acquired Ground laid out in a regular, advantageous and beautiful Manner, with pro- per Avenues to the North End of Black- friars Bridge; so that the middle Part of this great Town may be rebuilt in a proper Manner, and the Inhabitants return from the Extremities of it, to which for many Years they have been go- ing, and depopulating the Centre. Several Hand- mills, of a new Invention, for grinding Corn, are now constructing, in order to be sent to Florida, for the Use of the Settlers in that Province.

As we had been informed by several Country People that, to their great Surprise, they had been offered 35 s. per Cwt. for Cheese about two Months Since, we were fearful it would be very dear, but found the selling Prices To- day were from 26 to 28s. new Milk ; and as the Embargo upon Corn had quieted the People, ( and we thought had prevented a Mob that we had been threatened with last Week) we expected the Fair to pass quietly ; but the Factors having bought considerable Quantities, and not having Opportunity or Time to re- move it, had collected it together in an Heap, to be watched all Night, as is customary ; when the Mob, offended at their buying So briskly the first Day, Seized all the Factors CheeSe, notwithstanding the most strenuous Endeavours of the Magistrates and Constables, who sur- rounded the Cheese, read the Proclamation against Riots, and did every thing in their Power to prevent it. When it was all stolen or distributed they dispersed, and left the Farmers Cheese undisturbed, and all was quiet before Ten at Night. It is said one Man had bought 15 Tons." Edward Bacon, Esq; one of the Representa- tives in Parliament for Norwich, has given No- tice by Hand- bills, that he has ordered his Te- nants to supply the Poor with wheat at 4s. per Bushel; and we hope this worthy Exam- ple will be followed by other Gentlemen of Fortune. A Letter from Wantage in Berkshire informt us, that the Clergyman of a Village near that Place, being rather too strict in his small Tythes made a Demand of the Hive of Bees out of ten, which belonged to a poor Farmer in his Parish. The Farmer, with some Reluctance, sent them by his Man, with a Cloth tied to the Hive to keep them in ; the Man was made to drink for his Labour, which done, he thanked this mise- rable Divine for his Liquor, but told him, although the Bees were his, the Hive was his Master's, untied the Cloth, let the Hive fall hard on the Floor, took it up again with speed and ran out of the House. Letters by Friday's Post from Edinburgh in- form us, that the Harvest in the North of Scot- land, particularly Orkney, is completely got in ; and that so fine and plentiful a one has not been remembered there upwards of thirty Years. We hear from Penrith, in Cumberland, that a new Coal Pit was Sunk in that Neighbourhood a few Days ago, for the Benefit of the inland Paris of the County. On Friday a Butcher in Clare Market gave 40l. 15s. for two Norfolk Steers, at Smithfield, and was offered immediately two Guineas for his Bargain. A few Days ago John Goddard, recommend- ed by Mr. Cambrook of Turk's- head Court Golden- lane, St. Luke's Parish, was restored to Sight by Mr. Taylor, Oculist, in Hatton- gar- den. What renders this Cure the more valua- ble, is, that Goddard has a Wife and four Chil- dren entirely dependent on his Labour, and is now, by this fortunate Recovery, in a Condition of providing for them. A few Days since was married Mr. John Kent, Son of Mr. Kent, Silk Dyer, in Upper Thames- street, to Mrs. Brockway, Widow of the late Mr. Brockway, an eminent Hosier in Cornhill. ThurSday last was married a: Marlborough in Wilts, Mr. Warner, Apothecary, of that Place, ' to Miss Beale, of Newbery in Berks. Lately died, at Ringwood in Hampshire, Jo- siah Clarke, Esq; of Week near Christchurch, formerly Deputy- Commissary of the Marines. On Friday Evening died, at his House at Hackney, Daniel Walkinshaw, Esq; a Carolina Merchant in Bishopsgate- street. Yesterday, between Ten and Eleven in the Forenoon, the Rev. Mr. Ball was taken drown- ed out of a Pond on Hadley Grange, a little beyond Barnet. He used to do Duty at South Mims in Hertfordshire, and ' tis supposed was flung from his Horse, and Kicking in the Mud was suffocated, the Pond not being three Feet deep ; his Watch, Money, Buckles, & c. were found on him. He was seen on his Return home going thro' Barnet in good Health on Sa- turday Evening. On Saturday se'nnight Benjamin Kirbyshire, Bricklayer, of Steeple- Morden in Cambridge- shire, was found dead in the Fields near that Place. He had been the Evening before to a neighbouring Village, and having drank to Excess, it is supposed fell down, and not having Power to get up, was suffocated, being found with his Face to the Ground. Friday in the Afternoon as one M'Cannon was playing at Tennis in a Court near Lincoln's Inn Fields, the Ball rebounded with such Vio- lence from the Wall against his Eye, as to force it quite out of the Socket. Friday se'nnight William Belcher, a Drum- mer in the Cambridge Militia, riding on a Coach- box from Stirbitch Fair, was suddenly seized with a Fit which he was subject to, and fell to the Ground, by which Accident he was so much bruised that he died the next Morning. Last Monday Morning Robert Walker, a Blacksmith at Cambridge, shoeing a vicious HorSe, the Beast Suddenly gave him a Kick over his Leg, which broke it in Such a Manner, that he died on ThurSday Morning in great Agonies. Last Week as a simple Countryman was pas- sing through Caiherine- street in the Strand, he was decoyed by a lewd female Sharper, into one of the Infernal Stews, with which that NurSery of Vice abounds. After being ply'd with Liquor till he grew dead drunk, he had his Pockets picked of Five Guineas, being all the Money he had. Committed from the Public Office in Bow- street, to different Prisons, during the last Week: William Upton, for robbing Richard Se- grey of a Siiver Watch: John Edwards, for Stealing Linen and Apparel, the Property of Ormond Atkins: Mary Minors, for stealing Goods privately in the Shop of Thomas Smith of the Butcher- row : Philip Vignart, for steal- ing a Quantity of Wearing Apparel, the Pro- perty of Robert Kitchens: John Gwynn, for picking of Pockets : William Rose, and Mary Rogers, for robbing in the County of Surry. Saturday Morning a Man was commited to Bridewell, by the Sitting Alderman at Guild- hall, for being an Importer, pretending to fall into strong Fits ; by which he extorted Money from the Compassionate. Samuel Bellejean, Operator for the Teeth, late Successor to Mr. Jullion of Coventry- street, deceased, begs Leave to acquaint the Nobility and Gentry, whom he has had the Honour to serve, that he is no more with Mrs. Jullian, but for himself, and lives at the Golden Head in North Park Street, Grosvenor Square, where the Continuance of their Favours will be grate- fully acknowledged, by their most humble Ser- vant, SAMUEL BELLEjEAN. A Copy of a Letter to Dr. W. LOWTHER. SIR, AS by the Use of your NER- VOUS POWDERS and DROPS, I have been cured of a most complicated Nervous Disorder, attended with the greatest Dejection, Horrors, Tremors, Start- ings, Flatulency, Dimness of Sight, Head- ach, Loss of Appetite, depraved Digestion, with an emanated Construction, and many other grievous Symptoms, which afflicted me for nine Years, without receiving the least Benefit from various Trials of other Medi- cines.

Public Office, Bow- street, A CAUTION. PUBLIC Notice is hereby given, that there are at this Time, in and about this Me- tropolis, several ill disposed Persons of desperate For tunes, who, by Conspiracy among themselves, and without any Consideration, have issued out Notes and Bills of Exchange for large Sums of Money ; some on fine Paper, curiously engraved, and others on Cheques, and have procured a circulation of many of them by subtle Devices and untrue Representations, to the mani- fest Injury of those who have received them. It is, therefore, recommended to all Persons to be very cau- tious what Bills or Notes they take, and from whom, as the only Means to defeat such pernicious Designs, so de- trimental to public Trade and Commerce J.

A general Idea of the Loss by Fire in Bridge- Town, Barbadoes, has been frequently given an exact Estimate of the Particulars properly authenticated, will be made out on the Spot, and in due Time transmitted hither to be published. In the mean while, from the best Intelligence, the Testimony of People now in England, who were present at the dreadful Scene, the Letters of private Persons of Judgment and Veracity, and the Accounts given by a Committee of the Legislature to the Agent of the Island; it is again repeated with Confidence, that the whole Loss does rather exceed, than fall short of Three Hundred Thousand Pounds Sterling. The Trade of Bridge- Town is carried on in general with small Capitals. The Number therefore of Indi viduals reduced to Poverty by such a Calamity, is much greater in Proportion than it would be in ano- ther Place where Commerce was conducted by Gen- tlemen of more extensive Fortunes. And it is only to those who have been reduced to Poverty by the Fire, that the Benefactions will, or can be extended. These Benefactions have now rose to 8257l, 12 s. rod. a Sum which will afford a little Relief to many a wretched Family. It is a fresh Example of the Hu manity of the Nation, and of the Power that there is in a great Number to alleviate a very heavy Misfor tune. And while the most humble Thanks are re turned for the past, be it permitted to indulge the Hope of future Favours. Several Pens have solicited the Public in behalf of these great and distant Sufferers. If Zeal has not al- ways been tempered with Discretion, it can only be lamented. The Press is, and it ought to be open. The unhappy Inhabitants are as yet alike Strangers to their kind Friends, and to their mistaken Advocates. The Committee here can acquit themselves, and it may be observed with Pleasure, that, however Offence may have been given, yet none has been taken surely none was intended. In the last Publication the Sum total was dated at 7ml. OS. id. this was an Error of the Transcriber or the Press, it should have been 1001, more. How- ever the real Sum was 72211. 10 s. id. A Person had added Ten Guineas to a Benefaction after the Lists had gone to the Press then that particular Be- nefaction was altered ; but the other Sums were not changed in Consequence. It is necessary to apolo- gise for an Erior in some of the Papers, wherein Ten Guineas were ascribed to Mr. Roycroft, instead of Mrs. Roycroft, of Charing Cross.

COUNTRY NEWS. Oxford, 0ct. 3, Since our last no material Disturbances have happened here on Account of the Price of Provisions, which in general fell at more reasonable Rales than for some Time past. The current Price of Mutton at present is Three- pence Half- penny per Pound ; Butter Six- pence ; and Wheat Five Shillings the Bushel; two Loads of which were brought to our Market on Wednesday last and immedi- ately sold at that Price. On Thursday at Woodstock Fair, Cheese sold from 203. to 24s. per Hundred; and towards the latter End of the Day, an ordinary Sort at about 18 s. or 195. Cambridge, Oct. 3. On Wednesday last, the Rev. Mr. Meredith, one of the Senior Fellows of Trinity College, was elected Vice Master, and Messrs. Davis and Charlesworth Fellows of that Society. Norwich, 0ct. 1. Near thirty of the Ring- leaders, who assembled on the high Price of Provisions, are taken and committed to the City Gaol, where they are guarded by a Party of the Militia. Sunday and Monday Evenings, all the Streets were illuminated, and upwards of five hundred of the Inhabitants, armed with Staves, patrolled all Night; and on Wednesday two Troops of Lord Waldegrave's Dragoons came to Town, but thank God, the Rioters were all dispersed before their Arrival. The Magistrates are taking every Method to reduce the Price of Provisions, and this Day Butter was sold for Two- pence a Pint less than last Week, and all Things in Proportion. Worcester, 0ct. 2. Last Monday Night a Barn ( in which was a large Quantity of Grain) be- longing to the Rev. Mr. Harrison, of Dover- dale, was entirely burnt down, supposed to have been maliciously set on Fire by some wicked, evil minded Persons ; for, when the Barn was first observed to be on Fire, a Man was seen to be running off, and heard to whis- tle. It is with great Pleasure we communicate to the Public the following noble and exemplary instance of Generosity in the Farmers of the Parish of Hanbury, in this County : On Sunday last they met together in the Vestry of the Church, and there unanimously agreed to carry their Corn to Bromsgrove the next Market- day, and sell it at five Shillings a Bushel ; and to continue selling at the same moderate Price till Christmas. To the PRINTER. SIR, AS the Public have lately heard much Talk of Mr. Wildman, I beg Leave to lay be- fore them, by Means of your very useful and instructive Paper, some little Account of the Exhibition at Dobney's Bowling Green, on Wednesday Morning, at which I was present. Mr. Wiidman first brought in one Swarm of Bees, cluster'd together upon the End of a Piece of Stick. A Table Cloth was immedi- ately spread upon a long Table, and the Bees shook ofF the Stick thereupon ; when Mr. Wild- man took up many of them, and handled them with the grestest Freedom, but at the same Time with the greatest Tenderness. He placed the Hive at the farther End of the Table, and after pushing in some, commanded the others to follow, which many of them did ; but the Windows of the Room being open, and many of them flying about, Mr. Wildman thought it most expedient to manage the Bees in the Gar- den. Accordingly the Company removed into the Garden, and Mr. W. fetched another Swarm on his Hat, which he then gave several Gentle- men to examine and feel the Weight. He afterwards made them swarm in the Air, when many settled for a Time upon our Faces, Hands and Cloaths, but without doing the least Injury to any Person present. He then brought another Swarm of Bees on his Left Arm, and the Hive from which they were taken, with the Honeycombs, & c. therein, in his Right Hand. This was to shew the Utility of his Art, by which he could take the Wax and Honey from the Hive, without defraying the poor La- bourers, which has hitherto been generally the Custom. To shew that by his Secret he could take all Power of their hurting him from the Bees, he next brought six different Swarms united, upon his Face, Breast, Arms, kc.— drank a Glass of Wine, and then mounted a Horse, and rode gently two or three Turns about the Garden. In this Situation, view'd at a little Distance, he made a most formidable Appearance. But some Gentlemen present, who had not been satisfied wi: h his former Ex- periments, now began to complain— that he had by no Means answered the great Expectations which had been raised of his Command over the Bees, which we had heard he could order and direct to do any Thing almost that he pleased ; his bringing a Swarm upon his Hat, or Arm, they said was nothing, as Instances had been known ol a Swarm of Bees settling upon a Person some Time ( viz. ' till they could be hived) without doing that Person any Injury. And as he had hitherto fetched his Bees from a particular Room of the House, which nobody was as permitted to enter but himself, and brought them to us upon his Arm, & c. they said that he or any Man might bring a Swarm of Bees upon his Arm only by inticing and putting on first the Queen Bee, whom the rest of the Swarm will follow. They therefore desired to see him call any particular Swarm from their Hive, and make them come to him in Preference to the Hive. Herein the whole Secret consisted ; and Mr. Wildman would by no Means consent to shew them, as it was an unreasonable request, how he allured the Bees from the Hive, which was all they said he could do with them. Here then the Exhibition ended •. Mr, W. said he could shew more, but it grew late, and most of the Company were unwilling to stay longer. The Gentlemen above mentioned went away much displeased, and the Spectators in general rather dissatisfied ; owing, I imagine, partly to the Ill- nature of some of the Company, and partly to the Misfortune of the Manager of the Bees, who labours under a great Disadvantage in not being able to talk fluently upon the Sub- ject, or set off his Performance to the best Ad- vantage. But every Thing that has the Ap- pearance of Innovation will always meet with Objections; and useful Discoveries, or Improve- ments, can or.., be established by Time and Experience. I am, Sir, Your constant Reader, ^ S /, And humble Servant, A Quiet Spectator. same peculiar- crackcd Trill in his Voice with which he acted his Part, he told the Audience that there had been no Prologue to Cato for fifty Years— and then, keeping the same Tone, went on with his Part the great, th' important Day! but the Galleries were still mutinous. At last, the stoical Portius lost his Temper ; and cocking his Chin at the Up- per Region, addressed them thus: Gentlemen above! if you WILL have a Prologue, you must speak it yourselves ; for d n me if I can. At going off the Stage he met his Friend Quin, who' took him by the Hand Thank thee, Ryan— you have spoken like an Angel to ' em d n their Bl—— s. I must deSire you, Sir, to speak to some of the Wits, to take this Matter in Hand and make Laws to put Prologue- speak- ing upon a respectable Footing — for if the Rage for Prologues continues, we shall lose the first Act of every Performance in the Tumult of the Ayes and Noes. Our noisy Friends in the Upper Gallery put me very much in mind of an old Irish hospita- ble Gentleman of my Acquaintince, who ne- ver thought he had enough, but would con- stantly call for a Dram of Whisky before Din- ner, and force his Neighbours to swallow it too; by which means he palled their Stomachs, and they could not eat half a Meal or enjoy even what they did eat. I am, - SIR, Your most obedient Humble Servant, NO PROLOGUE. To the PRINTER. Prologue! Prologue! Prologue! SIR, THIS is the Noise that is now continually heard at the Beginning of almost every Play and Farce, to the great Disturbance of the sensible Part of the Audience, and to the great Vexation of every feeling Performer. It is a most lamentable Thing, that it shall be in the Power of half a dozen noisy Fellows in the Upper Gallery to put a Stop to the Perform- ancce for some Minutes, and destroy the sceni- cal Delusion, by obliging Mr. Holland, for In- stance, who perhaps at the Time personates the Tyrant, to unknit his Brow, and force a sickly Smirk into his Face with Ladies and Gen- tlemen, the Prologue you call for has not been spoke for many Years, and the Person who spoke it last has been dead some Time. Yet this will not con- tent them, for they are even for raising the Dead rather than not have a Prologue.—— I was last Tuesday Night at Drury- lane to see the new Actress in Juliet ( by the Bye, that Lady has one of the finest Pipes I ever heard, and it will dis- course most excellent Music when properly played upon). At the drawing up of the Curtain, a Voice or two, from mere Habit, called Prologue! Prologue ! but they were drowned in the Vocife- ration of the Capulets and Montagues. How- ever, they reserved their Fire for the Farce of Daphne and Amyntor, and would not let us enjoy the pretty Duet, at the Beginning, . between the Enchantress and her Son. Mr. Vernon, who was obliged to step forward, Cap in Hand, and let us know that the Speaker was ill, or not in the House, or something or another, which Ad dress put him out of Character, the Orchestra out of Tune, and poor Miss Young so out of Humour that she exhibited a most melancholy Countenance and did net recover her Expression again for the whole Night. Thus we are disturbed, and prologued out of our Entertain- ment. I remember, last Winter, Mr. G , after an Absence of two Years, paid his Respects to us in a Prologue, which, for three or four Nights, had its Effect; but when he came every Night he acted to let us know how terrified he was to appear before us— With Joy, Fear, Apprehension almost dumb, & c. the Absurdity rather gave us Pain than Plea- sure; for he was obliged constantly to leave the Stage and his Character, and come bowing and grinning to speak twenty or thirty Lines which in six Nights had lost all their Meaning. I could wish, for the Sake of Decency and Common Sense, that the Public would discountenance so barbarous a Custom, which makes us so ridicu- lous and seems so unaccountable in the Eyes of every Foreigner. I remember to have seen, many Years ago, the Tragedy of Cato, and it opened with old Ryan in the Character of young Portius. He was immediately attacked with Prologue ! Pro- gue ! at which he stept forward, and, with the * An Irish Dram. A. a Introduction to inform the Public, that the under- mentioned Discourse is delivered in an easy plain, and familiar Manner, being principally intended for the Perusal of such Persons as may now be affiicted, o what is worse, have been ill cured of the Disorder therein treated on, and further that they may ascer tain with some Certainty, whether any remains o( the Poison is still lurking in the Bloodx or whether left labouring under the baneful Effects of strong Mercurial Medicines. Let him well observe the Opinion of the ingenious Dr. Peter Shaw, Physician to his late Majesty, viz. " That frequency flying " Pains, Head- achs, and other Symptoms occasioned ** either by the Mercury or the Relicks of the Dis temper, often continued fter . supposed Cure of the Infection.

FEBRIFUGE ELIXIR, OR GE- NUINE Tincture of PERUVIAN BARK : Being an Improvement on the Process recommended by the great Dr. HUXHAM. As the Bark is now universally esteemed by the most eminent Physicians in Europe, to be the best Medicine in the whole Materia Medica, fo no Preparation of that celebrated drug, has hitherto been discovered comp- rable to this excellent Elixer, which, by a judiciously contrived Process, and a Menstrum happily adapted to the Subject, is made to contain all the Virtues of the Bark, in a Degree vastly superior to any other of its Preparations, with this farther Advantage, that it is perfectly grateful to the Stomach. It is an admirable Febrifuge and Stomachic, and may be given in all In- termitting Fevers with the greatest Safety and Success, and will infalliby cure all Agues that are curable by the Bark, in a more speedy, safe, and pleasant Manner, than any other Preparation of it possibly can, as it never occasions any of those disagreeablc Symptoms that so often supervene the Use of the Cortex in Substance. It is likewise the greatest Restorative in Nature in all Cases proceeding from too lax a State of the Fibres, as by its Astringency and Aromatic Quality, it strengthens the whole Nervous System. It is sold in Phials which contain near four Ounces, with proper Direction;, by Mr. Dixwell, Printer, in St. Martin's- lane ; Mr. Williams, Bookseller.

WOODWARD, Surgeon, at the King's Arms, near Halfmoon- street in Piccadilly, thinks it highly necessary to inform those who labour Under that dreadful Calamity of RUP- TURES, commonly called Burden of Broken Bellies that the concealing of that Disorder, without applying for Relief, will certainly, in Proportion as they are afflicted, turn sooner or later to a Mortification, and of Course too often proves to be out of the Power of any Application to afford the wished for Relief. Such being the real Case, he thinks it unnecessary to enlarge: on his own Success in every Case of Rupturess is a PraCtice of 30 Years must give testimonials of his Abi- lities, beyond what the most elaborate Pen could possibly describe ; and as the greatest Improvements generally result from long Experience, he cannot think it any way improper to declare, that his new- invented Ban- dage, for large Ruptures in the Navel, Groin, or Scrotum, has. been found of the greatest Utility ima- ginable, and is produCtive of all the good Consequences for which it was intended, as it gives the greatest Ease in supporting, and reduces those violent Ruptures into the Body, and keeps them there so as to enabhle the Af- fliCted to follow their daily Labour, with as much Ease as if no such Disorder attended them. And his other Instruments and several Medicines pre- pared by him, for the cure of the above Disorders have been so well received for such a Number of Years, he thinks it useless to say any Thing himself in Recom- mendition of them.
