ART OF THE DOUGLAS' CAUSE. IN our last our readers were presented with a view of the Douglas Cause, as it is set forth by the friends of the Hon. Archibald Douglas, Esq;— it will now be proper to shew the motives which induced the Guardians of the Duke of Hamilton to dispute the right of succession to the Douglas estate with Archibald. Mr. Archibald Douglas being served heir ( as is the Scotch term for being admitted to suc- ceed) to the Duke of Douglas's estate *, upon the late- Duke's decease, in 1762, a rumour had been propagated that he was not the real child of Lady Jane Stewart, but only a sup- posititious one ; upon which the tutors of the Duke of Hamilton deputed Mr. Andrew Stuart, one of their number, a man of the strictest honour, to go privately to Paris, and, from the circumstances he had picked up, to make enquiries concerning the truth of Lady Jane's delivery. Mean time claims were entered to the Duke of Douglas's succession, not only by Mr. Douglas, his nephew, who was served heir, but also by Duke Hamilton, and the Earl of Selkirk.—- In this competition, the Court of Session pronounced an interlocutor, or decree, dated December 9, 1762, finding, " that Archibald Douglas", as heir of line, is called to succeed to the late Duke of Douglas in his whole estate ; and that the brieves, at the instance of the Duke of Hamilton, and the Earl of Selkirk, for serving them heirs in special to the said Duke, could not proceed; and remitting to the macers to dismiss the same accordingly.'' Whilst this process depended in Scotland, Mr. Andrew Stuart had made some discoveries in France, which, he doubted not, would turn out to the account of his pupil. He visited Rheims, Aix, Sedan, and every place where Lady Jane was affirmed to have been during her pregnancy, and previous to her arrival at Paris in 1748. By searching the registers at the coach offices he discovered the names of those who had ac- companied her through the different stages in her journey from Aix to Paris. Many of these he found out; and, by their accounts, was con- vinced that Lady Jane had not even the appear- ances of pregnancy ; and that of course these appearances were equivocal, being assumed to some, and laid aside to others. In this opinion he was confirmed by the similar accounts of the Miss Heiberts at Rheims, at whose house Lady Jane lodged before she went to Paris to be delivered ; and of Miss Sautrez, a mantua- maker in the same city, who had taken Lady Jane's measure for some gowns, which she had fitted up for her after the French fashion. This last seemed a very material wit- ness, as she must have had occasion to examine Lady Jane's shapes with greater attention. The evidence was now growing upon him. But the master- discovery was still to Come. Mr. Stuart mentioning to a gentleman at Rheims the in- tention ot his journey to France, the strong suspicions that the defendant was an impostor, and the evidence he had already procured, was told that the Curate of St. Laurent, at Paris, had given him the history of a kidnapping, which seemed to agree remarkably in time and other circumstances with that suspected by Mr. Stuart. The latter listened to the story with great attention, and procuring a direction to the Curate, set out immediately for Paris. The account which he received from the Curate was in substance as follows: That an elderly gen- tleman, answering to the defcription of Sir John Stewart, had applied to him in Novem- ber 1749, for a list of the poor of his parish, pretending that a foreign lady of quality in his parish, of a very charitable disposition, was willing to be at the expence of maintaining and educating a child of any poor person, and had employed him to ask a list for that pur- pose, but the gentleman declining to tell the lady's name, the Curate dismissed him without granting his suit. That, upon this denial, the gentleman, as the Curate was afterwards informed, applied for a list to Les Soeurs de la Charite de la Paroisse de St. Laurent, and ob- tained it. That, having thuS got a list of poor families, and having found a woman to attend him in his search, he went to several houses enquiring for children. That when he came into any house where there were only fe- male children, he took little notice of them. —- That he came, at last, to the house of poor man and woman ( Saury) who had eight or nine children ; that he fixed his eyes upon ene of the youngest, a boy of a fair com. This estate is worth upwards of 1o, oooI. per ann. plexion ; and, upon being informed that he was born in 1748, he immediately made choice of him.— That the parent of the child con- sented, being deceived by the story which he had trumped up of the charitable lady That, accordingly, the boy was carried to the house where the gentleman lodged, where were two ladies. That, concerned for their child, the parents returned the next day, and found him well cloathed and tenderly used. That the gentleman told them his name was Duvernes, of the kingdom of Ireland, and that he generally resided at St. Germain en Laye in the neighbourhood of Paris. That, returning soon after to the same house, they were told that the strangers had set out that morning with the child in a coach, and that they said they were going to St. Germain en Laye. That, after searching for them in vain in St. Germain en Laye, and several other places, the father of the child applied to the Curate, and related the whole circumstances to him; that the Curate applied to the Lieutenant de Police for his assistance in discovering those strangers; in consequence of which, enquiry was made, but without success. This story feemed to agree, in every circum- stance, with Sir John Stewart's second journey to Paris, in Novembar 1749, to fetch, as was pretended, his son Sholto from nurse. It was, therefore, full time to commence the process; and Mr. Stuart, having first seen some of the Sanry people, and heard the Curate's account confirmed, wrote to Scotland a full narrative of the discoveries he had made; and advised that a reduction of the service on the head of falshood should be immediately begun. The present action was accordingly com- menced, in the form of a summons, in De- cember 1762; and a condescendance of facts offered to be proved by the pursuers, founded on the above discoveries of Mr. Stuart, was presented to their Lordships on the ninth of July 1763. _ In reducing a service, it is necessary either to falsify the evidence, or to demonstrate that the proof was intrinsically insufficient to dictate the judgment which had been pronounced by the jury. In the present act of reduction, it was offered to be proved that Sir John and Lady Jane had actually been guilty of the crime of counterfeiting a birth; by which means Mrs. Hewit's testimony was falsified.— That to support this imposture, the accomplices had found it necessary to forge four letters from Pierre la Marre, the pretended man- midwife, which, beiug produced at the service, had in- fluenced the jury in returning their verdict.—- That the appearances of pregnancy deposed to by the witnesses in the service, were alto- gether equivocal— And, in fact, were assumed or rejected at pleasure. In a word, that clear and most satisfactory evidence could be brought, that the service was erroneous in every particu- lar. Could this be proved, the consequence was unavoidable. Mr. Douglas, no longer nephew to the Duke of Douglas, could not succeed to his estate, as not possessing the cha- racter in which it had been devised to him. In the mean time, a petition was given in for the defendant, complaining of the pro- ceedings carried on in France. Mr. Andrew Stuart, it seems, had, upon report of the Curate of St. Laurent and the Sanry people, by the advice of counsel, actually commenced a prosecution before the Tournelle Criminelle, or criminal court of the Parliament of Paris, against Sir John Stewart and Mrs. Hewit, for alledged supposition of children. These proceedings were represented as un- fair, unprecedented, and highly injurious to the defender.— It was said that, by the very na- ture of a plainte, the witnesses were led in giving evidence; and the alarming influence which this might have on the witnesses to be examined in this cause, was strongly insisted on. Their Lordships, after hearing council, and advising on this important question, pronounced an in terlocutor of date August 11, 1763, expressing their disapprobation of Mr. Andrew Stuart's conduct in commencing so illegal a prosecution in France, and desiring that the depositions of the Tournelle witnesses might be cancelled, be- fore they be admitted as witnesses in the present action. At the same time their Lordships al- lowed the Pursuers a proof of the facts in their condescendance ; and the defendant an excul patory proof: and commissioners were appointed by the court for that purpose. About this time one Mignon, a glass- grinder at Paris, gave in a revelation to the Curate of his parish, importing, that in July 1748, and about the middle of that month, a Lady and Gentleman, answering exactly to the des- criptions of Sir John and Lady Jane in the Mo- nitoire, had carried away a son of his, on pre- tence, That the new- born son of a lady of their acquaintance had just died, unknown to his mother; that they were obliged to keep it some time as a secret from her, as she was indisposed; and this they could not do, unless they could procure a child to pass upon the mother as her own.' That he consented, upon condition they would return the child soon, which they pro- mised, but that he had never seen the Gentle- man, Lady, nor his child since. Revelations were likewise tranfmitted by several witnesses, who had known Mignon's child, or were privy to its being carried away in 1748. These revela- tions were removed into the Tournelle, and were strongly corroborative of the charge against Sir John and Mrs. Hewit.— In short, no expence or trouble was spared 0n either side. Evidence was procured, by virtue of their Lordships commission, in Portu- gal, France, Germany, Scotland, and England. In fact, most of the countries in Europe have furnished witnesses to this important cause. Mean while Mr. Douglas, having the ver- dict of a jury in his favour, was put in full possession of the estate of his deceased uncle. An attempt, indeed, was made by the pursuers, after the commencement of this action, to have the estate sequestrated, till a decision should be obtained ; but it proved abortive. Before Sir John Stewart died, he drew up a declaration properly attested, in which he calls God to witness, in the most solemn manner, that the defendant is his and Lady Jane's son, But to return to the proceedings.— The me- morials, which were ordered to be given in on the 27th of September 1766, were, by necessary delays kept back, till the 24th of January fol- lowing. Their length, indeed, accounts suffi- ciently for the time taken up in getting them ready : that for the pursuers amounting to be- tween eight and nine hundred pages, and that for the defender to between six and seven hun- dred pages, large quarto. The Lords, considering the size of the me- morials, and the great importance of the cause, delayed advising it till June following; and, in the mean time, appointed the parties to make such observations on each other's memorials as they should think proper. In June, 1767, ad- ditional memorials were given in by both par- ties; Mrs. Isabel Walker, now Mrs. Glass, who attended Lady Jane to France, was exa- mined in court; and the cause was once more delayed to be advised till the 7th of July, when the Lord President opened the debate with a very elegant speech, declaring for the reduction of the service ( the disinheriting Mr. Archibald Douglas). Lord Strichen spoke next on the op- posite side. The debates continued till Tuesday the 14th, when, by the President's casting vote the cause was determined in favour of the family of Hamilton. From this decree of the court of Session, Mr. Douglas has entered an appeal to the House of Lords; and the decisive sentence of that right honourable house is expected with impatience." 20s. in the load.

Charles Howard, jun. of Greystock, in Cumberland, Esq; who was married on the 27th ult. in Dubin, to Miss Coppinger, sole heiress to a real estate of 16000I. a year, near Corke, arrived with his Lady at Greystock Castle on the 31st in the evening, at- tended by their tenants, who drank the family of the Howards, round a bonfire, amidst vol- leys of small arms, and ringing of bells. Sun- day last they visited each of the poor families in their cottages, and repeated their alms. On Monday by a general invitation from the young couple themselves, the tenants, old and young assembled at the Court- house in Greystock; a great number of carcases of mutton were di- stributed among the poorer sort; the new- mar- ried lady gave with her own hands, every young woman a favour: then Mr. Howard and his lady condescended to dance with their tenants on the green before the Court- house, whilst the old people, seated on benches, with healths and acclamations hailed the happy pair. The village was joyous and gay. THURSDAY'S POST Arrived the Mails from Holland and Flanders. Paris, July 31. THEY write from Compiegne, that all the foreign ministers and the principal nobility, are alternately entertaining the Duke of York in the most brilliant manner; and his Highness is often with the Royal Family. The Princesses having asked the Duke how he liked the troops which he had seen reviewed, he made answer, I am so well satisfied with their manoeuvres, and I think them so fine a corps, and so well disciplined, that I hope, for the sake of my brother, never to see them but on the plain of Royal- Lieu. It is assured that the Chevalier Hook, and Mr. Henley, a relation of the Chancellor of En- gland, who some time ago quarrelled at the Concert- Spirituel, lately met again at Spa, and fought a duel, in which Mr. Henley was so much wounded, that he was obliged to quit the engagement; but proposes to renew it as soon as he is recovered of his wounds. Calais, August 6. His Excellency the Earl of Rochford, who left Compiegne on Sunday last, in order to go over to England for a few days on his own private affairs, has never- theless been so vigilant as to take Dunkirk in his way ; and yesterday his Lordship trusted to his own eyes instead of the report of others, how matters stand at that sea- port. A King's cutter is here in readiness to carry his Excellency over, who proposes passing the Flatts, and landing at his own seat at St. Osyth in Essex. COUNTRY NEWS. Reading, August 8. In this and the neigh- bouring counties a better prospect of a plenti- ful harvest for all kinds of grain Was scarce ever remembered; as a proof of which the few days of fine weather we have had this week past has already occasioned the price of wheat, in our market, as well as Henley and Windsor, to fall MONDAY, August 17, 1767. LONDON, August 11. By a gentleman who came on Sunday last from Wisbich, in Cambridgeshire, we are in- formed, that the corn in those parts is very fine, and the largest crops that have been known for many years. The wheat harvest is begun in the counties of Bucks, Bedfordshire, and Hertfordshire. Sunday and Monday, two corn ships, from Naples, two from Holland, three from the Straits, two from Hamburgh, and one from Leghorn, arrived in the river. His Majesty's Officers in the Isle of Man lately seized 97 bags of wool, on board a vessel in Ramsey Bay, bound for Havre de Grace. Yesterday morning, about two o clock, a fire broke out at the King and Queen public- house, in Narrow- street, near Lime- house bridge, which consumed the same, and five more in front, with several out- houses, and greatly damaged some other houes adjoining. To the Gentlemen, Clergy, and Freeholders of CARDIGANSHIRE. BEING at this Time your Representative in Par- liament, I farther solicit the Honour of meeting you at Cardigan on Saturday the 22d of August Last, in order to take the Sense of the County, with respect to the ensuing general Election, and in Hopes to prove myself on such Occasion, GENTLEMEN, Your very faithful and very obedient Servant, CARMARTHEN, J. p. PRYSE. August 4. To the Gentlemen, Clergy, Freeholders, Land- holders, Tradesmen, and others, in the County of PEMBROKE. IN Pursuance of a Memorial signed by the High Sheriff and Grand Jury, at the last Grand Sessions for the said County, a Copy whereof has been inserted in the Glocester Journal, you are desired to attend. the Third Day of the next Grand Sessions, being the 3d of September next, at Haverford- west, or some Persons on Behalfs of those who can't personally attend, in order to subscribe such Sum and Sums of Money as shall be thought sufficient to prevent an Application to Parliament for a Turnpike necessary. Those Gentlemen who may be of Opinion, that the Great Roads from London to Pembroke and Haverford- west can't be repaired - without applying to Parliament, are desired to attend, in order to give their Reasons against the present Plan. It is apprehended, that no Gentlemen in the County of Pem- broke will neglect to attend, or send a Representative, to de- liver his Sentiments on this Occasion, unless it should be his Opinion that a Turnpike will be most eligible. N. B. If a Turnpike should take Place it is apprehended Gates will be fixed on both Sides of Haverford- west, Pem- broke, Tenby, Narberth, Fishguard, Caneston Bridge, and near Cardigan, which will render those Places in the same Situation with the Town of Laugharne.

For the Reception of whose Patients a House, extremely well situated at a proper Distance from this Town, is fit- ted up in the most convenient Manner, which ' tis hoped will effectually prevent spreading the Distemper. As a Doubt still remains with some, that this Method of Inoculation is no effectual Security from the Natural Small- Pox, the Patients generally going through the Dis- ease with so little Inconvenience as scarcely to deserve that Name, any Person may, by paying One Shilling in the Pound, have undoubted Security for any Sum not ex- ceeding 200I. to be paid on his having the Distemper again.

Mr. Justice Hewitt, wherein two Cheesefactors were plaintiffs, and the men of the hundred of Chippenham were defendants, upon an action of the statutes of hue and cry, for a load of cheese, value 60l. which was seized and taken on the King's high- way by a great number of riotous persons ; when, after a trial of five hours, and hearing many learned arguments on both side. the jury found a verdict for the plaintiffs, and full damages ; but a point of law was reserved for the determination of the Court of King's- Bench. At the assizes for the county of York, Ann Sowerby, for poisoning her husband, was capi- tally convicted ; and on Monday was drawn on a sledge to the place of execution, and there LOST, on Sunday the 2d Instant, between Ross and Hereford, A White POINTING DOG, with yellowish Liver colour a Ears, and one Spot upon the Rump, having on, when lost, a Brass Collar marked, Wm.

WE hear from Paimbeuf, that on the 24th ult. about ten in the forenoon, a fire broke out on board a new ship called the Amiable Rose, belonging to Nantes, of 250 tons burthen. She had been aimed for the Coast of Guinea, and had taken in part of the cargo, but only two officers were in her when the flames appeared. Above 300 men immediately went in boats and cut the cables, whereupon she went down with the tide, without damaging any of the other vessels, and went on shore some distance from the road, where she was burnt to the water's edge. burnt. Five other persons received sentence of death, three of whom have been reprieved. On Sunday morning one of the unfortunate girls who were cruelly beaten, and otherwise most barbarously treated by their mistress, the Painter's wife, in Flower de Luce court, ex- pired in St. Bartholomew's Hospital of the wounds she received from her said inhuman mistress, who is not yet taken ; and on Tues- day an inquisition was held on the body, when it appeared by the evidence of the surviving girl, that, about a year and a half ago, the deceased was put apprentice, and was upon trial about a month, during which she eat and drank as the family did ; that soon after her mistress, Elizabeth Brownrigg, began to beat and ill- treat the deceased, sometimes with a walking- cane, at other times with a horsewhip or a postillion's whip, stripping her quite naked, tying her hands a- cross with a cord fometimes fixed to a water- pipe, and sometimes to a staple in a beam in the kitchen underground, striking her over all parts of her body and head, under pretence that she had not worked hard enough ; that particularly on the 31st of July laft, her mistress obliged the deceased to strip herself naked, and then tied her up to the staple in the beam, and beat her with a whalebone riding- whip on several parts of her body, and, with the butt- end, divers times about the head, the blood gushing from her head and other parts of her body ; that she repeated such ill usagc that day five severAl times afterwards; and the deceased continued bleeding, from her head and shoulders, from that time ' till the 4th inst. when she was conveyed to the workhouse, no dressings having been applied to her wounds. A late journeyman of Brownrigg's deposed, that his master once whipped one of the girls, he could not tell which ; when the whip being broken, he mended it again. The wife of a tradesman in Flower de Luce Court deposed, that she had often heard lamentable cries and groans issuing from the lower part of Brown- rigg's house; whereupon, on Monday the 3d instant, she desired her journeyman to look down Brownrigg's skylight, ( part of which happened that day to be taken off) to see if he could discover from whence thofe groans arose ; when he seeing something lie on the ground, threw down a little piece of the wall; and the deceased lifting up her hand, made a sort of a noise in her throat, but seemed unable to speak. On this discovery, information was given to the parish officer, on whose coming to the house, and desiring to see the girl, Brownrigg said that she was at Stanstead in Hcrtfordshire, and had LONDON, August 14. On Wednesday the Right Hon. Lord Vis- count Townshend kissed his Majesty's hand at St. James's, on his being appointed Lord Lieutenant of Ireland.— [ The first perquisite of a Lord Lieutenant is 6000I. for plate, and to put him in motion, as it is called.

TO be SOLD in Fee, by Auction, at the King's- Head in Monmouth, on Thursday the 3d 01 September next, between the Hours or three and six in the Afternoon, That genteel MANSION HOUSE and TENEMENT adjoining, with all convenient Offices and Out- houses, together with upwards of 180 Acres of Arable, Meadow, and Pasture Land thereto belonging, situate in the pa- rishes of Dixton and Monmouth, within two Turnpike Miles of the Town ol Monmouth, commonly called and known by the Name or the Tump- farm, all now let to and occupied by Thomas Morse for a Term of Years, whereof about twelve are yet to come, at the yearly Rent- of 100l. subject only to a chief Rent of 6s. per Ann. payable to his Grace the Duke of Beaufort. The House with very little Expence may be made suitable and con- venient for any Gentleman's Residence or Summer Re- treat, distinct from the Tenant, having an agreeable Prospect of the Town of Monmouth and Country ad- jacent. This Estate has the Advantage of the River Monow almost surrounding it, which is no small one considering the great Droughts our Climate has of late Years been subject to; the Whole being as well situated, complete, and con- venient an Estate as any in the County of Monmouth, and exceedingly easy taxed, the Land- Tax being now only 61. 6s. per Ann. and not subject to any Poor Tax but what is paid by the Tenant, according to the Custom of the Country.

The Tenant will shew the Premises. f been there a fortnight; but being confronted by the man who had seen her lying under the skylight, and threatened by the officers, he at length produced the unhappy creature in a most shocking condition and speechless. The Sur- geons gave it as their opinions, that the wounds she had received occasioned her death. The jury brought in their verdict, charging Eliza- beth and James Brownrigg, as both guilty of wilful murder, the latter for having aided and abetted the cruelties of his wife. The youngest son, who was confined in the Poultry- Compter, was ordered to be discharged, no accusation having been laid against him at the above inquest. The overseers of several parishes have come to the resolution of making strict enquiry into the condition and usage of their several poor children, who have been bound out ap- prentice, and that the same will be repeated from time to time, in order to prevent any cruel and inhuman usage being inflicted on these helpless innocents. On Tuesday the finest hops were sold in the Borough market at four guineas the hundred weight. On Monday the wheat harvest began in Surry, where a more plentiful crop was never known. By accounts from various parts of the Con- tinent, they have the prospect of the most plen- tiful harvest that has been known for many years past, as well as we have in England. On Tuesday, by the Lord Mayor at Guild- hall, an order was made that bread should be lowered half an assize, or 1d. in a peck loaf. Great quantities of corn, now lying on board several ships in the river, are entirely spoiled by heat. Very large commissions have been received in Ireland for shipping beef, pork, flour, butter, & c. for the use of the Jesuits in Corsica. COUNTRY NEWS. Leeds, August 11. About three o'clock on Wednesday morning last, the inhabitants about the bridge in this town were greatly alarmed with a sudden and uncommon swell in the river, which rose upwards of two yards perpendicular in the space of an hour, by which several fields of hay about Castleford, & c. are swept away. Two horses grazing in the School- close, were forced down by the current, but both landed near the bridge. Much more damage was done by the sudden rising of the River Wharf, which was higher than has been known for near 20 years. Bath, August 13. Monday was committed to Shepton- Mallet gaol, Richard Millard, aged upwards of 80, for the murder of his wife on Sunday morning, at Compton- Martin, in this county, by knocking her down with a hatchet, and cutting her head almost off with a bill- hook. The Coroner's inquest brought in their verdict wilful murder. Worcester, August 13. At our assizes, which ended on Monday last, William Prees, for horse- stealing, was capitally convicted, and re- ceived sentence of death, but was afterwards reprieved.— William Harris, condemned last assizes, but afterwards reprieved, is to be transported for 14 years. Three were burnt in the hand, four ordered to be whipped, and five were acquitted. The trial of Edward Hig- gins, charged with returning from transporta- tion, lasted about three hours, in the course of which were many learned arguments between the Council. Several persons appeared to prove the identity of his person, and his being seen at large in this kingdom before the expiration of the term for which he was sentenced to be trans- ported ; but as proper vouchers, either of his being delivered at any of his Majesty's planta- tions, or being received on ship- board for that purpose, were not produced, all other evidence was found insufficient. During the trial his deportment was suitable to the solemnity of the occasion. Against the assizes at Carmarthen he is to be removed thither by habeas corpus, to be tried on a charge of burglary. Oxford, August 15. On Tuesday the Races began here, at which we had a more brilliant, as well as more numerous appearance than have honoured this place on any like occasion for many years.— Upon the meadow, though the course was rendered bad by the extreme heavy rains which fell here, and westward, in the night preceding the entry of the horses, yet the heats were run with most amazing re- solution. TUESDAY, the town plate of 50I. was won at three heats by Mr. Everett's dun hor. Antelope, beating Mr. Croft's Tortoise, Mr. Todd's Chance, Mr. Meynell's Pancake, Mr. Gilpin's Dreadnought, and Mr. Cope's Valiant. WEDNESDAY, the 50I. for four- year- olds was won, at three heats by Mr. Stroud's Con- stant, beating the Hon. Mr. King's filley, Mr. Shepherd's Pleasant, Mr. Duggins's Dormouse, Mr. Earley's Young Crab, and Mr. Jones's Judgment. THURSDAY,— This days sport was singular. Four horses started for the give- and- take plate of 50I. for which there were five heats between Mr. Todd's Badger alias Plowboy, Mr. Stroud's Tiney, Capt. Wallop's South- East, and Count Laraguai's Pine Apple. The former won the plate. On Tuesday, between the heats, upon a dis- pute about a trifling wager, a gentleman under- took to horsewhip a clergyman of this county of very respectable character. And early in the last day's sport, the same gentleman began administering the like discipline upon another clergyman, in order to settle a fimilar point; but this second frolick, by some unlucky mis- chance, not being at all relished, either by the gentleman attacked, or even by the specta- tors, the arguments of the whip were retorted with such energy, that the hero was obliged to quit the field under very disagreeable circum- stances. Thursday se'nnight in the evening, during the dreadful tempest which happened at Leach- lade, in Glocestershire, a gentlewoman was struck by the lightning, and most unhappily lost the use of one side. HEREFORD, August 15. G.

MONDAY's POST. Arrived the Mails from Holland and Flanders. Hague, August 11. THE Prince of Orange set out from hence on Saturday evening for Loo, where his Serene highness arrived in good health very early the next morning. The day before his de- parture was the anniversary of the Princess of Prussia's birth, his future Princess, upon which occasion he received the compliments of the foreign Ministers, and celebrated it by an en- tertainment at the palace of the Old Court. The weather continues very fine in these parts, which gives great hopes for the ensuing harvest. Gazette. LONDON, August 15. St. James's, August 12. His Majesty in Council was this day pleased to declare the Right Hon. George Viscount Townshend Lieutenant- General and General Governor of of his Majesty's kingdom of Ireland.— Gaz. Thursday Lady Dalkeith kissed the King's hand on being created Countess of Greenwich. We hear that the Earl of Chatham's present illness is principally a nervous fever, attended with a kind of rheumatick ague, affecting the head chiefly; and it is supposed to have been occasioned by his journey to town from Bath, in a fit of the gout, in the severest weather of last winter. Dr. Addington now resides in his Lordship's house. Letters from Dublin, of the 18th instant, mention, that a full- length portrait of his Grace the Duke of Northumberland, painted by Reynolds, has been lately put up in the dining- room at the Mayoralty- house, in that . city. It is highly admired for the goodness of the painting, and the richness and elegance of the frame; at the bottom of which, on an escutcheon, is the following inscription: " The City of Dublin, desirous to preserve some last- ing memorial of a Lord- Lieutenant, who for his magnificence and liberality, his many great and public charities, and his particular atten- tion to their recommendation and interest, was most justly loved and esteemed by them, hum- bly requested the Earl of Northumberland to sit for his picture, who not only complied with their wishes, but honoured them with it at his own expence. Some of the morning papers say, It is re- ported, that the change of a Lord Lieutenant of Ireland was in consequence of intelligence being received from thence, which made it ne- cessary that a general officer should go in that character. Others say, it was owing to a letter sent over to Ireland, which had affronted the whole kingdom. They write from Paris, that the celebrated John James Rousseau is at present at the seat of a person of quality at Auvergnc, where he is composing with all his might, a piece upon the manners and genius of the English. A gentleman arrived from abroad gives the following additional particulars relative to the affair between the chevalier Hooke and Mr. H , who quarrelled at the concert spirituel at Paris some months ago, which at present is much the subject of converfation. Mr. H. hap- pening to be a little elevated with Champagne, talked so loud that he interrupted the music, for which he was reprimanded by the chevalier Hooke, to which he returned no other answer than a slap in the face ; the frenchman imme- mediately drew his sword ; the guards were call- ed in, and when they attempted to seize the of- fenders, the chevalier Hook was running and dancing up and down like a madman, totally unmindful of the soldiers crying out. " A slap on the face ! A slap on the face ! A slap on the face ! " and this was all as could be got from him for a considerable time after he was seized. According to the laws in France, the chevalier would have been confined, for drawing his sword where he did, a close prisoner for 24 years; but on the pressing instance of the English Am- bassador at Paris, the punishment was totally remitted. However, the chevalier had received a blow, and ' till he had revenged the insult, he could, by the rigid rule of honour, no more return to, or serve in his corps. Mr. H. ac- cepted the chevalier's challenge, and a duel was fought ( as mentioned in the preceding post) near the German Spa. The parties spent the preceding evening together with some friends, and seemingly in a most friendly man- ner. They kept their appointment in the morning. The Englishman fired his pistol first, and missed his antagoniit. The gallant French- man then shot his pistol off into the air, and called to Mr. H. to have recourse to his sword. Presently after the commencement of the en- counter, Mr. H. received a thrust in the arm, and declaring he was wounded, seemed desirous of declining further combat. The chevalier Hock repeated, " Sir, your wound is neither dangerous, nor disabling; fight on." They did so, and both were hurt; but Mr. H. so much, as to be entirely incapable of continu- ing the engagement. They parted by consent but they were only " tired, not satisfied ;" and the determination of both is, to renew the con- test as soon as the recovery of Mr. H. will per- mit.— It is however hoped, that as each of them has now retrieved his honour, their friends will be able to effect a reconciliation between them. They write from Milford- Haven, that on Tuesday last, one of his Majesty's armed cut- ters took a French bark on the coast of Wales, with 70 bales of wool on board, and carried her into Milford- Haven. The following unfortunate affair happened a few days since at Mr. Calcraft's seat in Kent. The game- keeper early in the morning put some wet gun- powder to dry in the kitchen ; but it unfortunately happened that the cook- maid soon after went in, and not knowing of the gun- powder being there, she went to heat the oven, which causing the gun- powder to take fire, the explosion blew off the poor woman's head, and did considerable damage to that part of the building where this accident happened. The noise of the explosion was so great, that the family were put into the utmost consternation for a considerable time. POLITICAL. IT is well known, that as soon as the last sessions of parliament was closed, there was al- most a general resignation of employments. The first L— d of the T so eagerly desired to quit his situation, that he himself brought the offer of it to another noble peer, his im- mediate predecessor. One of the S of S—, he of the n n department, sent no less than four circular letters four weeks following to the foreign ministers in his department, to say, that having obtained his master's consent to re- tire, he did n0 longer any businefs in his of- fice. The ingenious C of the E made no more scruple to say he should resign day after day, than he did to give as a reason for it, that he would act no longer with such ignorant and blundering collegues. The Lord L t said indeed the direct contrary, but he has shewn by his actions how unfit he has found himself for his high station, and has sneaked into retirement with only 20000l. of Irish money in his pocket, and the universal curses and detestation of that kingdom. The P. of the C. from age or infirmities, or ill- humour, or from all these causes, swore he would go on no longert but retire into the country, and take care of his health, and he has been as good as his word, for he has never appeared since to preside at that board. The servants of the Crown despise and detest each other, as much as they must all be despised and detested by the nation. This miserable weak system of administration is still rendered weaker by want of harmony amongst them- selves. The poor man, who was originally placed at the head of it, is either really gone distracted, or is forced to feign himself so, to get rid of the difficulties in which he has in- volved himself and his country. Those crea- tures of his, who were placed in some of the highest offices of state, are become the objects of the jealousy of their brother M s, whose attachment is stronger to the Favourite and his powerful and secret influence. Thus all connection, all confidence is destroyed, as well amongst themselves as with their masters. But notwithstanding this, which is a true pic- ture of the present ministry, it seems it is de- termined it shall go on, and this country must submit with its eyes open to such public mis- management.

The harvest, which promises to be the most plentiful that has been known for many years, is already begun about Newent, and the vil- lages on that side cf the country.— This seems to have a sensible effect upon our market. The farmers, who at the beginning of the market on Saturday refused 8s. 2d. and 8s. 4d. would have been very glad to have accepted 8s. at the close of the day, if they could have got it. We may now very naturally expect that every week will bring a very great reduction in the price of all kinds of grain. On Thursday Charles Barrow, Esq; gave a grand turtle feast to the Mayor and Corporation of this city, at which were present the Earl of Berkeley, the Right Hon. William Dowdeswell, Esq; Sir William Codrington, and many other gentlemen of this city and neighbourhood. And on Friday the Mayor gave an elegant entertainment on the nomination of his successor Mr. Alderman Webb.— After dinner the com- pany drank the health of the new Mayor in a superb silver goblet, a present to the Corpora- tion from Charles Barrow, Esq; On Wednesday last John Webb, Esq; late Captain of the London East- Indiaman, was married to Miss Arabella Fettiplace, daughter of Thomas Fettiplace, Esq; of Swinbrook, in the county of Oxford. On Thursday Mr. Henry Cooke, an eminent Clothier, near Stroud, was married to Miss King, of Alkerton, in this county. We hear from Presteign, that on Tuesday last was held there a meeting for carrying into execution an act of Parliament for a general Turnpike through the county of Radnor, at which there was a very numerous appearance of the Nobility, Clergy, Gentry, and Free- holders, when a subscription was opened by Thomas Lewis, Esq; of Harpton, who sub- scribed the sum of 500l. towards the repara- tion of the said roads. On Wednesday in the Race week at Bur- ford, there will be run a Sweepstakes, one four- mile heat, for ioo guineas each, between his Grace the Duke of Beaufort, Mr. Bowles, and Mr. Page.

RECOMMENDATION.—" I have read the Travels of Monsieur de Blainville with the highest pleasure As far as I am capable of judging, they are at once accurate, copious, and entertaining. I am told, they are now first trandated from the author's manuscript in the French lan- guage, which has never been published ; and if so, they are a valuable acquisition to ours. The translation, as I am informed, has been made by men of eminence, and is not unworthy of the original. All I have to add is, that, to the best of my opinion, Blainville's Travels are the most valuable work of this kind hitherto published ; containing the most judicious instruCtions to those who read for amusement, and being the surest guide to those who intend to undertake the same journey.

By his Majestys Royal Letters Patent, granted to the Patentees for the sole Making and Vend- ing the same in Great- Britain, Ireland, and the Colonies. THE virtues of this medicine are manifest in all disorders of the stomach and bowels ; gout, gravel, scurvy, rheumatism, agues, and all intermittents. In female complaints it has never failed to relieve, and it is the greatest restorative for impaired and shattered con- stitutions. Its high antiseptic virtues render it specifi cally valuable as a preservative against all invectious dis- tempers ; and as it is the most powerful antiscorbutic, no medicine extant deserves so much to be regarded for the service of his Majesty's navy. For a more ample account of its uses the public is referred to a pamphlet of cases, to be had of the venders. This excellent Medicine is sold by W. Nicoll, in St. Paul's Church- yard, and T. Becket, Strand, London ( with good allowance to country dealers, captains of ships, and those disposed to give it away for charitable Uses), in Bottles at 3s. each. It is also appointed to be sold at the Printing- Office in Glocester ; by A. Brown, in Bristol ; C. Pugh in Here- ford ; M. Bevan, in Swansea ; A. Wood, in Brecon ; and J. Bence, in Wotton- Underedge. *** As the public may perhaps wish to be satisfied that the proprietors are possessed of the original recipe, any person may see, at Mr. Nicoll's, as above, the attestation of its originality by the Magistracy of Paris, with a ra- tification of the same by his Britannic Majesty's Embassa- dor at the Court of France. MANGAAR'S Peruvian PILLS, A certain Cure for the AGUE and FEVER, attended with the most dreadful Symptoms. TWO or three doses of this most excellent medicine perform a cure, let the patient be ever so ill, and though the disorder be ever so long continuance, and at the same time, these pills are so extremely innocent that they have been applied with the utmost safety to young children. This medicine has never yet been made pub- lic, though it has in private been administered, gratis, many years, and never yet failed a perfect cure. Price 3s. 6d. the box, each box containing six doses, which is always sufficient to perform a cure be the patient ever so ill ; and in general half that quantity will be enough. Sold, by Mr. Mangaar's appointment, by S. Crowder, at No. 12, and J. Coote, at No. 16, in Pater- noster- Row ; at the Printing- Office in Glocester ; by Messrs. Gamidge at Worcester, Hodges and Pugh in Hereford, Blunt at Ross, Williams at Monmouth, Ruddor at Cirencester, Wilde and Pearce at Ludlow, Barrow at Leominster, Bence and Watts at Wotton, Faithorne at Dursley, Smart and Green at Bristol, Taylor at Carmarthen, Warne at Chipping- ham, Green at Highworth, Gilmore at Marlborough, Bevan at Swansea, and Underwood at Leachlade ; Mrs. Green at Tenbury, and Mrs. Craven at Tenby. , Among variety of testimonies in favour of this medicine, the following affidavit was sworn before Sir Robert Kite, Lord- Mayor. CHarles Gustervandell, boatswain, and Matthew Over- hausen, cook, to the Mary, Capt. Thompson, jointly and severally make oath and say, That they these depo- nents went on board the said ship to Virginia in June last, where this deponent Charles Gustervandell was vio- lently afficted with an Ague and Fever, attended with the most alarming circumstances, but by taking Mr. Mangaar's Ague Pills, which had been provided for the voyage ( the ague and fever beirg disorders which very few people escape in that part of the world, and such com- plaints frequently proving fatal) he was perfectly restored in a very short time. And these deponents further say, that the whole ship's crew, except the captain and one more, were afficted with an ague and fever to a very great degree, and that they were all except one perfectly cured by this medicine, and that one that did not take this me- dicine unfortunately died. They further say, that they have administered the said pills to many of the inhabitants of Virginia afflicted with the said disorders, and that they never once failed of performing a cure, though many of the patients were so extreme'y ill that their lives were despaired of, Sworn this 31st day of Decem- Charles Gustervandall, ber, 1766, before me, at Matthew Overhausen. the Mansion- house, RobErT KITE, Mayor, All the rest of the ship's crew are willing to tes- tify the truth of the above to any person that desires to be further satisfied. It is imagined that no person in Great- Britain, Ireland, or America, will ever be without this medicine, as they will then certainly have it in their power almost instantly to remove agues and fevers, whenever they, or their friends and neighbours happen to be attacked by them. London, November 24., IHAVE appointed Mr. RAIKES my Agent for the Sale of my Medicines for Glocester and Places ad- jacent, and all Persons may be supplied by him on ad- vantageous Terms. J. H I L L. i. ESSENCE of WATER- DOCK, For the certain Cure of the Scurvy, and all breakings out, It never once failed in many thousand Instances. THERE can be now no question but this plant will CURE THE most inveterate SCURVY. New instances of cures come in continually to prove, that every kind and degree of the disorder Certainly yield to it.
