- VOL. XLVI. THURSDAY'S POST. Hague, August 9. MONDAY, August 24, 1767. 2361. Galleons, formerly mentioned as lost, and got a considerable quantity of treasure out of them. And that no less than 27 vessels were out upon the wreck of one, said to have had 18 millions of dollars onboard. SCOTLAND. Edingburgh, Aug. 11. We hear from Hawick, in the shire of Roxburgh, that on Wednesday the 5th inst. they had a great deal of lightning, attended with very loud peals of thunder and heavy rain, which lasted above an hour. At four o'clock the water of Slitridge came down with an unusual impetuosity, and rose at the bridge, in the middle of the town, 21 feet three inches above the ordinary run of the water, which is ten feet higher than ever for- merly known ; and as the arches of the bridge were neither wide nor high enough, the water with immense violence spread itself on every side, and having, in its run thro' the woods, pulled up by the roots innumerable great trees, the rapidity of the flood hurled them down with such irrefutable force, as drove every thing before them, and threatened ruin and destruc- tion to the place. At the height of the flood, when the houses were entirely deserted, a ser- vant maid belonging to a merchant of the town, recollected that her master had in the house, ( which was one of those now surrounded by the water) about 300I. in gold. Her master being from home, she acquainted the neighbours, and begged their assistance to re- cover it; but none of them could be found to venture; upon which the girl herself boldly made her way into the house, and got hold of the bag with the cash, but in coming out she was carried down by the stream, without a possibility of assistance being given her. Pro- vidence, however, interposed for her safety. She was cast on shore by the force of the water on a green a little below the town, just alive, and the money grasped in both her hands so fast, that with some difficulty it was got re- moved. It is remarkable, that at Hawick, the water hath made a pit in the sands big enough to hold the largest ship that ever was built. AMERICA. Charles- Town, South- Carolina, July 6. Capt. Dawson in four days from Providence, informs us, that some wreckers had found two of the LONDON, August 18. St. James's, August 18. The King has been pleased to grant unto the Right Hon. Caroline Campbell, commonly called Countess of Dal- keith, the dignity of a Baroness of the King- dom of Great- Britain, by the name, stile, and title of Baroness of Greenwich in the county of Kent: and the dignity of Baron of Green- wich in the said county of Kent, to the heirs male of her body begotten by the Right Hon. Charles Townshend, Chancellor and Under- Treasurer of his Majesty's Exchequer. Whitehall, August 15. The King has been pleased to order letters patent to be passed under the great seal of the kingdom or Ireland, con- taining a grant unto the Right Hon. Thomas Lord Howth, and the heirs male of his body lawfully begotten, of the dignities of a Vis- count and Earl of the said kingdom, by the names, stiles, and titles of Viscount St. Law- rence and Earl of Howth : To the Right Hon. Charles Baron of Col- loony, and the heirs male of his body lawfully begotten, of the dignity of an Earl of the said kingdom, by the name, stile, and title of Earl of Bellamont: To Constantine Phipps, Esq; and the heirs male of his body lawfully begotten, of the dignity of a Baron of the said kingdom, by the name, stile, and title of Baron Mulgrave, of New Ross, in the county of Wexford. London Gazette. The Count de Malzahn, Envoy Extraordi- nary from the King of Prussia, and Count de Welderen, invested with the fame character from the States- General, having communicated to his Majesty the approaching marriage of the Prince Stadtholder with the Princess, neice of the King of Prussia, his Majesty has sent com pliments in writing, on this alliance, to the King of Prussia, to their High Mightinesses, and to the Prince and Princess who are to be espoused. On Saturday the Princess Poniatowski and several of the nobility dined at Vauxhall Gar- dens, where an elegant entertainment was pro- vided ; and this morning her Highness sets out for York, accompanied by Lord March, to be present at the races there. The Hon. Mr. Poulett, brother to Earl Poulett, has declared himself a candidate for Bridgewater at the next election. On Monday the Purser of the Speaker East- Indiaman, Capt. Dewar, came to the India- House, with an account of the above ship be- ing safe arrived in the Downs from Fort St. George and Bombay. There were no ships left at St. Helena when she sailed from thence. We hear from repeated trials of North- Ame- rican oak, at the principal dock yards in this kingdom, the master builders are entirely of opinion, that the timber of that country is by no means hard enough, or of sufficient durance to be used in the construction of his Majesty's ships of war. On Saturday last, a noble Lord laid a wager of 30 guineas, with a gentleman of fortune, that he did not swim across the canal in St. James's Park with all his cloaths on, his hat on his head, and cane in his hand, which he performed with ease the same afternoon. A few days ago the Surveyor of Margate made a seizure of book muslin to the value of 3000I. concealed in the back part of a chimney at a house near Burchington, in the isle of Thanet. On Sunday a man, whose wife keeps a chand- ler's shop at Wandsworth, informed the parish officers of St. Dundan's in the west, that two persons, answering the description of Mrs. Brownrigg and her son, then lodged in his house ; that they had taken the apartment for a few days only, and passed for man and wife ; that the first day they did not stir out of the j room, but, on the second, the young man ' came down stairs to light a candle, when the landlord had a fair view of him ; and seeing the advertisement for apprehending the above of- fenders for the murder of one of the appren- tice girls, in one of Saturday's papers, he found it to describe the persons of his lodgers exactly ; whereupon he came to London, and gave the abovc information : On which Mr. Wingrave, constable, and Mr. Deacon, in Flower- de- Luce Court, set out immediately for Wandsworth, and found the parties informed against to be Mrs Brownrigg and her son, whom they con- veyed to town in a coach, and carried them to the Poultry Compter. This affair was con- duced with such calmness and privacy, that not the least bustle was made, and not even the coachman knew what they were about, till, when he had brought his fare to town, he was ordered to drive to the Poultry Compter. The mother was in convulsions all Sunday night, and continued very ill yederday. The mob was so numerous and irritated, that the son could not with safety be conveyed to the Man- sion- Houfe for examination, and it was post- poned. The Coroner has issued out his war- rant for committing the mother to Newgate ; but her illness renders it impossible for her to be removed at present. At the assizes for Suffolk, which ended last week at Bury St. Edmond's, an attorney, for dealing a punch ladle from Scole inn, in Nor- folk, received sentence of transportation for seven years. On Saturday Thomas and William Bryant were executed at Reading, for robbing Farmer Steptoe on the highway. It was remarked, as a very singular and affecting circumstance, that their father followed the cart to the place of execution, where he got up and took an ever- lasting farewel, kissed the youngest of them, and afterwards fainted away. An Endemic Influenza, which usually breaks out once in seven years, already begins to make its appearance. It shews itfelf in divers yellow spots, and the whole nation is a manner cor- rupted by it. The symptoms of this disease are, violent heats, a voracious appetite, an in- extinguishable thirst, and an extreme itching in the palms of the hand. The persons, who are seized with it, are in general extravagantly vo- ciferous ; and when they meet with an opposi- tion, they are quite frantic. This distemper rages chiefly among the common sort of people, though the like influenza afterwards extends it- self among persons of rank and fashion, who, from their high living, are extremely liable to corruption. It therefore commonly happens, that the influenza easily makes its way into their houses, and seizes them so strongly, that almost every Member is affected by it An absolute cure for this disorder has been in vain attempted by several eminent State physicians , it being, like the King's evil, hereditary, and trans- mitted from successor to successor ; but, by way of preventive, as many scruples of conscience as the case requires are recommended to be taken fasting. To the Gentlemen, Clergy, and Freeholders of the County of WORCESTER. BEING encouraged by many of our Friends, we presume to offer ourselves again to our Constitu- ents, and intreat the Favour of your Votes and In- terests at the next General Election of Members to serve in Parliament for the County of Worcester.

WARD. August 13. W. DOWDESWELL. I To the Gentlemen, Clergy, and Freeholders of the County of MONMOUTH. IHave taken the Liberty to offer my Service as one of your Representattvas in the next Parliament; and this early Application is made, least the little Time between the Dissolution of Parliament and a new Election might be too short for the Electors deliberately to resolve upon their Choice. Therefore I humbly hope this Address will not be thought Impertinent, until I can make Personal Ap- plication : But if a General Meeting of the County should be appointed to consider of proper Representa- tives, I will decline, if my Proposal is not then Sufficiently supported. I am, with the utmost Respect, Your faithful, humble Servant, LANWERN, CHARLES VAN. 10th of June, 1767. To the Gentlemen, Clergy, and Freeholders of CARDIGANSHIRE.

P. PRYSE. August 4. To the Gentlemen, Clergy, and Freeholders of the County of Glamorgan. THE very great Encouragement I have met with on my Canvas, in every Part of the County, claims my most gratejul Acknowledgement. I take this public Method of returning you my sincerest Thanks, and requesting the Favour of your Votes and Interest on the Day of Election. In the mean Time I shall be happy in every Occasion that offers of testi- fying the Sense I have of the Honour conferred on, GENTLEMEN, Your most obliged and most obedient Servant, GEORGE VENABLES VERNON. COWBRIDGE, July 12. To the Gentlemen, Clergy, and Freeholders of the County of GLAMORGAN. AVery numerous Meeting of the County having been held at Cowbridge, on the 10th Instant, in Pursuance of a public Advertisement of the High Sheriff and late Grand Jury, for the Nomination of a Representative at the next General Election ; and an honourable Candidate and his Friends having ap- peared at such Meeting, but having declined t0 enter into any Measure proposed for taking the Sense of the Majority thereof, permit me from this fresh Encou- ragement, and at the Instance oj a very considerable Number of my Friends there met, to intreat the Con- tinuance oj your Support in the only Method now left me of taking the Sense of my Constituents, and to beg the Honour of your Votes and Interests at the Day of Election, if necessary, for, GENTLEMEN, Your ever obliged and obedient Servant, EDMOND THOMAS.

GENTLEMEN, HAVING been invited by a very respectable Num- ber of the Inhabitants of this antient and royal Borough, to offer myself a Candidate to represent them in Parliament; and being well assured, from a most successful Canvas, of the general Concurrence of the Electors in my Favour, I take the earliest Opportu- nity of returning you my most grateful Acknowledge- ments for the Honour you have done me, and t0 assure you, should I be so happy as to be intrusted with what so essentially concerns the Honour, Interest, and Independency of my Country in general, and of this Corporation in particular, I will endeavour to dis- charge that important Trust with all possible Care and Fidelity. I am, GENTLEMEN, with the utmost Respect, Your most obliged, and most obedient humble Servant, GEORGE DURANT. EVESHAM, August 1. BRISTOL, July 13. THE GENTLEMEN NATIVES of the County of HEREFORD are desired to meet at the Merchant Taylor's Hall in Broad- street, on Thurs- day the 27th of August next, precisely at Eleven 0' Clock in the Forenoon, to accompany the President to St. Stephen's Church to hear Divine Service and a Sermon, and from thence to the Assembly Room in Prince' s- street to Dinner. EDWARD MADDOCKS, President. THE following is the King of Prussia's answer to the letter of felicitation of the States General on the mar- riage concluded on the 29th ult. between the Princess Sophia Frederica Wilhelmina and the Prince Stadtholder. " High and Mighty Lords, our good " Friends and Allies; " AS the eminent qualities of the Prince of Orange and Nassau, and the particular affec- tion which we have at all times avowed for the house of that Prince, have engaged us to give, with all possible good will, our consent to the marriage of his Serene Highness with the Prin- cess. Sophia- Frederica- Wilhelmina of Prussia : we are extraordinarily pleased to find, by the approaching alliance of our well- beloved neice with a Prince so dear to the respectable Republic of the United Provinces, and so worthy of her, the joyful occasion to strengthen and more closely unite the bond of friendship in which we have the satisfaction to live with them. We therefore acknowledge in the most cordial manner, the agreeable assurances which your High Mightinesses have been pleased to give us, by your affectionate letter of the 9th of this month, of the part which you take in this happy event: we join with you our prayers heaven that it may please the Almighty to regard this marriage with a favourable eye, that there may result therefrom to us a reciprocal joy, that it may contribute to the completion of our happiness, and be attended with blessings. Fi- nally, we are disposed and ready to give your High Mightinesses every testimony of friendship subsisting between two good neighbours. July 21, 1767. ( Signed) FREDERICK." Translation of a letter from the Princess of Prussia to the States General: " High and mighty Lords, " THE friendship of your High Mightinesses, which I have always greatly esteemed, is be- come in so particular a manner valuable to me on occasion of my approaching marriage with his Serene Highness the Prince of Orange, that I want expression to testify the pleasure I have in the assurances your High Mightinesses give of the part you take in this affair. I shall not fail to convince you, that the affection of the Prince of Orange towards the Republic, is ac- tually become my own ; and that the same zeal shall animate us both for advancing its honour and happiness. I shall do all in my power to gain the approbation of your High Mighti- nesses, and to shew that I am, with particular respect, your affectionate friend, WILHELMINA, Princess of Prussia." Paris, August 3. His Royal Highness the Duke of York appears greatly satisfied at the earnest endeavours of every body here to give him pleasure. He passed two days with the Duke of Orleans at Villers- Corteret, from whence he returned hither the 29th ult. The Parliament, on Thursday last, deter- mined a very interesting affair. A young wo- man of Manta, who had had a long illness, and which terminated in a kind of dropsy, was suspected, about three months after her mar- riage, of being delivered of two children, which were found exposed in a neighbouring wood; and this calumny gained credit to such a degree, that upon precipitant information, accompanied by attentions of surgeons and matrons, the accused was condemned to be hanged. Her husband and family appealed from this sentence to the Parliament, who, on the opinion of the experienced practitioners of midwifry in this capital, and on the clearest evidence, have adjudged that the accusation was the effect of prejudice, jealousy, and ani- mosity ; and the sentence an effect of igno- rance. Consequently the woman is reinstated in her character and honour: the ignorant surgeons and midwives are for ever prohibited from practice, and the judges admonished. This is not the first time that tribunal has been under disgrace, for having judged with preci- pitation. We find in the celebrated causes of M. de Pitaval, a like case, but which un- happily, through a criminal eagerness, was carried even to the execution to death of an in- nocent person, condemned by the Judges of Manta. The Empress of Russia having been informed, that M. de la Riviere, late intendant of Marti- nico, is the author of a new book, intituled, The Natural and Essential Order of political Societies,' has sent for him to her court, and, it is said, will give him the place which Mr. d'Alembert has refused. THO. GRIFFITHS, Surgeon and Apo- thecary, late of Carmarthen, having entirely drop- ped the Apothecary's Business and Partnership with Mr. CADOGAN, since the 12th of February last, gives this Notice to desire those who are indebted to him to pay their respective Debts without obliging him to put them to an unnecessary Expence. To be assigned over, An Apprentice who has served about two Years of his Time, to the said Mr. Griffiths, the Remainder of his Term of fire Years. No Letters answered Unless Post- paid. LONDON, August 22. ON MONDAY the 5th of October next, at Seven in the Evening, will begin, A COURSE of LECTURES on the THEORY and PRACTICE of MID- WIFERY, and the Diseases incident to Women and Chil- dren, in which the true Principles of that Science will be distinctly laid down, and the several Operations clearly demonstated, by an artificial Representation of each dif- ficult Labour, upon Machines of a new Construction, ex- actly resembling Women and Children.

JONES, Surgeon, takes this Method to acquaint the Public, That he has practised the SUTTONIAN METHOD of INOCULATION in Kent, and the adjacent counties, with the greatest Suc- cess, not being under the least Apprehension of one Per son's miscarrying; and is now come down, with the As- sistance of Providence, to introduce that Godlike Art into WAlES.

IF RACHAEL WINSLADE, Neice to the late Mrs. Mary Dowars, and who lived with George Dowars, Pawnbroker, on St. Philip's Plain, Bristol, in the Year 1759, be living, she ( or, if dead, her Heirs) may hear of something to her or their Advantage, by applying to Messrs. Brain and Gaisford, in the Old Market, Bristol. HAVERFORDWEST, April 17, 1767. WE the High Sheriff and Grand Jury for the County of Pembroke, taking into mature De- liberation the ruinous State of the Great Roads in this County leading from Haverfordwest and Pembroke to London, and having also fully ' weighed and considered the several general Turnpike Laws, and the Incon- veniences and Distresses that must arise to the Land- holders, Tradesmen, and Others in this County, if Application shall be made to Parliament for a Turnpike, and an Act obtained, which must subject ourselves and our Posterity to the above general Laws, which, as believed, will soon be put in Force in Carmarthenshire, and the Farmers there obliged to procure broad Wheels, or pay the several Penalties : Therefore to prevent the same, and all other subsequent Acts now passing, and hereafter to be past, from taking Place in this County, and to render an Application for a Turnpike unnecessary, we, the said Sheriff and Grand Jury, whose Names are hereunto subscribed, are come to the following Resolution, viz. To send to the several Gentlemen, Clergy, Land- holders, and Tradesmen within the said County, and Towns of Pembroke and Haverfordwest, desiring their Attendance in Haverfordwest the third Day of the next Great Sessions, or Persons on their Behalf ' s, to subscribe such Sums as they shall think proper for finishing the said two Roads, which, on a moderate Computation, will amount to the Sum of Eight Hun- dred Pounds, whereby this grand Undertaking, so landably begun some few Years ago, will be com- pleted : And also to subscribe a small Sum annually for keeping the said Roads in good Repair, which is testified to us by a Gentleman conversant in forming Roads that the same may be easily continued in suffi- cient Repair ( the Colliery Parts excepted) at the small annual Expence of two Guineas per Mile, in all about Fifty Guineas yearly, and having Part of the Statute Labour and Duties of the several Parishes through which the said Roads run, which, when proved to the Satisfaction of the Gentlemen, & c. at the above Meeting, it is hoped will entirely set aside the strongest Reasons that can be given for a Turn- pike, and render the Inhabitants of this County truly worthy of the Liberty and Freedom they enjoy, as themselves and their Posterity, by this unexampled Greatness of Mind, will be extricated from the Hazard of not only the above penal Laws, but of those now making and hereafter to be made, which must take Place here, if this, or some other, Plan is not generously pursued, to make an Application to Par- liament unnecessary: And We, the said Sheriff and Grand Jury, do hereby severally engage and promise not to apply for a Turnpike- Act for the County of Pembroke, in case the said Roads shall be put in Re- pair, and will as much as in us lie prevail on the Gentlemen at the above- intended Meeting to engage the same on their several Behalfs. N. B. No Provincial Law can be made to prevent the general Acts being enforced in this County if a Turn pike shall be thought eligible. COUNSEL WILLIAMS, Esq High Sheriff. E. Vaughan, Esq; Wm.

SATURDAY'S POST. Arrived a Mail from Flanders. Amiens, Aug. 15. THE celebrated Rousseau, after his arrival here from England, was so caressed by the admirers of his ex- travagant and whimsical philoso- phy, that they loaded him with all the kindnesses that enthusiasm is capable of in- spiring. Some of them even proposed paying him public honours. A person wiser than the rest represented the consequence of such a mark of distinction, when paid to a man against whom decrees had been issued in this very place, and within the jurisdiction of the Parliament of Paris that issued those decrees. They contented themselves therefore with feasting him in pri- vate. Such is the absurdity of his partisans be- haviour here. The weakness of Rousseau's head presents a proper spectacle for the humiliation, of philosophic pride. Since he left England he has received an invitation from Count OrlofF, the Empress of Russia's favourite, in the follow- ing letter. Translation of a Letter from Count Orloff, a Rus- sian Nobleman, to Mons. Rousseau. " You will not be astonished, Sir, that I write to you, for you know that mankind are inclined to singularities: You have yours; I have mine ; all that is natural. The motive of this letter is no less so. I have seen you for a long time pas- sing from one place to another; I know the reasons for it as publicly assigned, and perhaps I know them badly, because they may be false. A fancy has taken me to inform you, that I have an estate 60 wersts from Petersbourg, which makes near 10 German leagues. The air is wholesome, and the water admirable : The lit- tle hills, which surround divers lakes, form a- greable walks, very proper for contemplation ; the inhabitants understand neither English nor French, and still less Greek and Latin : the parson neither knows how to dispute nor preach. His flock, in making the sign of the cross, sin- cerely believe it to be all that is necessary.— Well, Sir, if ever this place should suit your taste, you may come and reside there ; you shall there have all necessaries, if you please; if not, you may live by hunting and fishing. If you would have any person to converse with, for amusement, you may; but above all you shall not be under the least restraint to any one. Far ther, all public knowledge of this place of your residence ( if you desire it) shall be likewise avoided ; and, in this last case, you will do well, in my opinion, if you can bear the sea, to make your passage by water: thus the in- quisitive will trouble you less on the way than by land. This, Sir, is what I thought myself in justice bound to write to you, in gratitude for the instructions which I have drawn from your books, though they may not have been written for me. I am, See." Mr. Rousseau's Answer. " YOU represent yourself, my Lord, as given to singularities, and indeed it is one to be obliging without views of interest, and still a much greater to be so at the remotest distance, to a person who is a perfect stranger. Your kind proposals, the manner in which you make them, and the description of the place of re- sidence which you offer me, would certainly be sufficient to draw me there, if I was less infirm, more alert, somewhat younger, and your country a little nearer the sun. I should be afraid also, that on seeing the person whom you now honour with your invitation, you might feel some regret. You might expect a man of letters, a fine speaker, who would repay your generous hos- pitality with wit and elegant expressions ; but you would find only a very plain innocent sort of a man, whom his taste of life and misfor- tunes have rendered very solitary, and whose only amusement is to study simples the whole day, and who finds in his commerce with plants that peace so delightful to his soul, which mankind hath robbed him of. I will not go then, Sir, to reside at your house, but I will always remember with gratitude the offer you have made me of it; and I shall sometimes regret the not being there to cultivate the good- will and friendship of the master. Be pleased to accept, my Lord, I pray, my most humble thanks, and very sincere salutations."

COUNTRY NEWS. Salisbury, August 17. Thursday last, about one in the morning, Robert Frith, gate- keeper at the Lobcomb- gate, on the London turnpike- road, near this city, was attacked at the turn- pike- house by a villain masked and armed with a Pistol, and robbed of 61. 12s. 6d. in silver. The highwayman came to the gate, and raised him from his bed ; and as soon as the gate- keeper opened the door, he saw the fellow alighted from his horse, who, with seeming civility, spoke of the delicacy of the morning whilst the gate was unlocking to let him through ; but on being asked for the toll, he turned himself round, and clapping a pistol to the gate- keeper's breast, told him he must have all the money in the house, or he would shoot him ; and then went into the house with the pistol in his hand, and rifled the drawers of the above sum, which he threw out of the bag into his hat, and then remounted his horse, and rode of. Worcester, August 20. On Tuesday last was held the anniversary meeting of the contributors to our Infirmary, when an excellent sermon was preached on the occasion by the Hon. and Rev.

A certain city Broker cleared upwards of 2000I. onWednesday, by the purchase of stock, on account of some forged news of the India Company having received some disagreeable advices. We are assured that the wheat in Stafford- shire, Worcestershire, and the adjacent counties, is so remarkably fine, and the crops so great, that the farmers in general say the like has not been known in those parts for more than half a century past. And By letters from the counties of Bedford, Huntingdon, and Cambridge, we learn, that great part of the wheat harvest is got in, which turns out exceedingly good. Last week, at Birmingham market, the best wheat fell in its price 2s. 6d. per quarter. Extract of a Letter from Portsmouth, Aug. 19 " A merchant at this port has received a letter from M. Lanchon, at Dieppe, dated the 3d instant, in which is the following paragraph viz. Our Commander received orders last Saturday from the Ministry, to let all the pilots know, that two English ships are coming from Barbary, loaded with wheat, which have the plague on board. The same day the drum beat on the occasion-' This account being received the earliest notice was given to the masters of the Custom- house cutters in this neighbourhood to be very vigilant, in order to prevent either of those ships from coming into this port should it be attempted. Sir John Moore has ordered the Solebay frigate out of the harbour in order to cruise in quest of the said ships" BRISTOL, August 22. ALL Persons indebted to the Estate of Tho.

It is said there will be a contested election for the county of Bucks. We are informed that the two vessels, sup- posed to have the plague on board, are arrived at Bristol, the ships companies in perfect health, the cargoes in good condition, and clean bills of health, there having been no sickness in the country for many years past : that this ground- less report arises from their having touched at Ostend, where they were to stop for orders; that they took in a pilot at Dover, and imme diately on their arrival at Ostend, received orders to proceed to Bristol. Yesterday John Brownrigg, eldest son of Brownrigg the painter in Fetter- lane, was car- ried to the Mansion house, and examined be- fore the Right Hon. the Lord- Mayor, relative to the murder of Mary Clifford ; when the sur- viving apprentice- girl deposed, that about six months ago the said John Brownrigg beat the deceased with the buckle- end of a thick leather belt, ' till the blood ran from her head, neck, and shoulders ( several wounds she had before received being but just skinned over), because she did not turn up a bedstead, though ( as ap- peared to the deponent, and as the prisoner must perceive) she had not strength enough to do it; and that about three months ago the said John came into the cellar just after the mother had been horsewhipping the deceased, who was then naked, when the former told him, that though she had beaten the girl se- verely, yet she could not make her do any thing, and bid him whip her; whereupon he gave the deceased about 20 cuts with the lash of the whip ; after which the mother and son went away, leaving the poor creature naked. The witness having added, that the son had not, to her knowledge, beaten the deceased after the last- mentioned time, and it being the opi- nion of the Surgeons that the wounds which occasioned her death were those which she re- ceived on the 31st ult. and the whippings given by the son being before that time, he was not adjudged accessary to the murder ; but however he was sent back again to the Compter, to con- tinue there a few days longer, ' till it could he known whether the parish officers had any other charge or evidence to produce against him with regard to his being accessary to the death of the said Mary Clifford. It appeared, in the course of this examination, that Elizabeth Brownrigg began to beat the deceased in about one month after her being bound apprentice, and from that time the wounds of the unhappy girl were never suffered to heal thoroughly, but constantly kept open by repeated severities.

The Prince de Cou- ronne, which arrived here on the 13th from Bengal, has brought an account, printed at the Trauquebar the 15th of October, 1767, con- taining the success of the Danish Mission in the East Indies. According to this account, the community of the Lutherans there increased, during the last year, 194 persons; and the number of new Converts within these 59 years, when the Mission was first established, amounts to 12,725 persons. Civita Vecchia, July 25. We are assured that that Genoese have agreed on a truce for four years with the Corsican malcontents, and that the latter have engaged to furnish the Jesuits, landed in Corsica, with necessary provisions. Paris, Aug. 8. Mademoiselle Clairon, lately took under her protection a very comely youth of 16 years of age, with a design to make an actor of him : she herself gave him lessons of declamation, and took a pleasure in forming him for the stage : he seemed to answer her wishes; his talents, as well as beauty, became daily more conspicuous; and she surnamed him Love, by which name he was generally known ; but by one of those fatalities which interrupt all human joys, the youth ventured, a few days since, to take lessons of another kind, and from another mistress : this kindled up wrath and indignation in the heart of our modern Claypso, who in the height of her passion dis- carded her pupil, as naked as the God whose name he bears. GLOCESTER, August 24. Our Magistrates, in consequence of the re- solution of adopting the Winchester Measure, have lately caused all the measures in this city to be examined and made conformable to the standard. On Friday morning last the Hon. and Rev. Mr. Allen Bathurst, son to Lord Bathurst, was found dead in his bed.— The many friendly and social virtues which marked the character of this worthy Gentleman, will make his death universally regretted by all who knew him. On Friday last Samuel Williams was executed here pursuant to his sentence, for a rape on the body of a girl at Hasfield. In his last moments he behaved very penitently, and expressed great remorse for his crime; aud before he was turned off, pathetically admonished the crowd to beware of an unrestrained indulgence of their brutal appetites. On Monday last there was a great match at backsword at Swindon, Wilts, where 25 hats were played for, and 24 heads were broken. * * The form of the warrants for appoint- ing Surveyors of Highways, agreeable to the new act, are now making out, and will be shortly pub- lished by the Printer of this Paper, of which proper notice will be given.

LONDON, 7 JOSEPH WESSELS, of the Old To wit. Baily, London, Successor to the late Dr. ROBERT WalkER, maketh Oath, ard saith, That one JOHN RAVENSCROFT, of the Old Baily, Lon- don aforesaid, as appears to the Deponent, hath published, that he, the said John Ravenscroft, was upwards of four Years an Assistant in the Warehouse of Dr. Robert Wal- ker, deceased, in the Old Baily, now kept by the said Joseph Wessels and Co. Whereas the said John Ravens- croft never did live with the said Dr. Walker; but that, after the Death of the said Dr. Walker, this Deponent and his said Company, hired the said John Ravenscroft as a Servant to attend their Warehouse, to cork and seal the Bottles, and carry out small Parcels when ordered. And this Deponent further saith, That during the whole Time the said John Ravenscroft lived with the faid De- ponent and his said Company, he never was intrusted with the preparing or making any of the PATENT JE- SUITS DROPS of the late Dr. WALKER, deceased, but hired merely as a weekly Servant, as aforesaid . and whom this Deponent and has said Company have lately discharged from their Service, Sworn at the Mansion- House, J. WESSELS. London, this 22d of No- vember, 1766, before me, ROB. KITE, Mayor. When a Medicine has raised and supported its Reputa- tion, by the many Cures it has performed, Quacks and Empires naturally endeavour ( through their Incapacity to find an equal) to imitate and impose on the World some Composition no ways similar, and frequently danger- ous to the Constitution ; and thus, by little mean Arts, deprive the Public of the Benefit of the Original, and rob the Inventor of his Property : This Imposition is at- tempted upon Dr. WALKER'S Patent Jesuit's Drops, which are to be had at our Warehouse the King's- Arms, No. 45, the Corner of Fleet- Lane, Old Baily, opposite the Sessions- House, London ; and at Mr. Raikes's, in Glocester. Our Patent Jesuit's Drops are the most certain, cheap, pleasant, safe, effectual, and immediate Cure ever disco- vered for Gleets and Seminal Weaknesses, both Sexes are subiect to ; also for a certain Disorder, from its slightest to its most malignant Symptoms : Likewise for the Gra- vel, Stone, and all scorbutic Cases. For your Health's Sake, ask for Dr. WALKER'S PA- TeNT JESUITS DROPS : each Bottle is sealed with Dr. Walker's Name, that you may not be deceived with a Counterfeit. By His Majestys Royal Letters Patent, granted December 3, 1765, ESSENCE of FLOWERS of BENZOIN. THIS Essence is a new pectoral and restorative Remedy, far fuperior in Virtue and Elegance to any before discovered : It gives immediate Relief in Winter COUGHS and COLDS, surprisingly lengthens the Breath in ASTH- MAS, and never fails to prevent or Cure CONSUMPTIONS when timely taken, as great Numbers of People in and near London have experienced, and many of them have testified its Efficacy. This Medicine, which is perfectly safe and pleasant, is appointed to be sold by Mr. Raikes, in Glocester, and by some Person in every capital City in England, in Bot- tles at 5s. and 2s. 6d. each. N. B. With each Bottle is given a Book of Directions, containing some useful Receipts for Diet, & c. MAREDANT's DROPS. To Mr. NORTON, Surgeon, in Golden- Square, London. S I R, IHAVE the pleasure to acquaint you that my wife has received a perfect cure of a most inveterate Scorbutic Disorder by taking your MAREDANT'S DROPS, which I should think an omission of justice to your medicine and self to conceal from the public, as it is a disorder so incident to the human frame. I here inclose you the cafe. About the year 1758 she was violently afflicted with a kind of an inflammation in her face and arms, which appeared like what is called St. Anthony's Fire, attended with large red blotches and extreme pain. She applied to several of the faculty, but without success, ex- cept from one who was a foreigner; he administered a kind of a diet drink prepared from herbs, which gave her some small relief for about two years. The next turn the disorder took it appeared in her stomach, attend- ed with most dreadful billious cholics, which she was af- flicted with every six weeks or two months ; the pain of which was so violent in her stomach and back, that it generally used to last her 8 or 10 hours, that to all ap- pearance she was like a person under the greatest torture, and - when that pain ceased it was succeeded by violent reachings, which continued five or six days ; after this her complexion used to be as yellow as a person in the jaundice, which seldom disappeared in less than a fort- night or three weeks. She still continued with a bad digestion, her stomach swelling, with violent hysterical complaints, See. We then again consulted several of the faculty, but without the least relief } and about three years ago it pleased God her disorder appeared again in her face and arms, but in a more corrosive manner than before, and much more swelled, her face being covered all over with blotches as bad as a person in the small- pox, and her eyes very much afFected with the inflammation, j her hands and arms from her fingers to her elbows were swelled to an immoderate size and covered with blisters, the extreme pain of which obliged her to apply a poul- tice to each arm, which discharged full three pints of the most corrofive matter in a few hours; this she repeated several times without the least appearance of abating the disorder, and went under a course of physic and dyet for near four months, and every internal and external appli- cation we could think of, with little or no success, ' till she found her constitution was decaying, and her disorder not much abated. At that time I was so happy as to read your advertisement, and persuaded her to take your Drops, and she soon found relief from every complaint in her stomach ; this induced her to keep wholly to your Medicine and Advice, until her cure was completed, which is now near 12 months ago. I should far ex- ceed the limits of a letter was I to express my obligations to you for your genteel and kind behaviour in your ad- vice, her disorder ever taking the turn you told her. My wife presents her compliments, and chearfully throws in the mite of her wishes for the success of your medicine ; and you have my leave to make what use you please of this, for the satisfaction of those afflicted with the like disorder. And I am, Sir, Your much obliged humble Servant, THO. FORREST. Great Kirby- street, Hatton- Garden, March 19, 1767. 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 thefe Drops, are sold 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 ari- sing from a Foulness in the Blood. They perfect Digestion, amazingly create an Appetite, and may be taken in any Season without the least Incon- venience or Hindrance of Business. The Famous Cordial CEPHALIC SNUFF, For the HEAD and SPIRITS. WHICH, by long Experience, has been found an effectual Remedy in most Disorders of the Head, and in some, especially the common Head ach, it seldom fails giving immediate Ease, and by fre- quent Use prevents its Return. It admirably opens and purges the Head, comforts the Brain, strengthens the Nerves, revives the Spirits, and is not an offensive Per- fume, but a most grateful salutary Aromatic. It also removes Drowsiness, Sleepiness, Giddiness, and Vapours, is of great Service in Hysterick and Paralytick Com. plaints, as well as in recent Deafness, Loss of Memory and Dimness of Sight. Those who so far comply with that Idol Fashion as to take much of the common Snuff ( and thereby injure both Head and Stomach) are desired to mix some of this Cordial Cephalick Snuff, with what they take in common, whether Scots, Spanish, & c. and their bad Effects will be in a great Measure, if not totally, pre vented. This Cephalic snuff is extremely proper for all Per- sons who use the Sea, well as those who visit the Sick or frequent the Hospitals, & c. as it fortifies the Brain and Spirits against all infections and noxious Fumes. Price Six- pence the Bottle. By his Majestys Royal Letters Patent, for Great- Britain and the Plantations, piKE's GRAND ANTIDOTE for the ITCH and all SCORBUTICK HUMOURS. The Proprietor has appointed Cluer Dicey and Co. at Dr. Bate- man's Ware- house in Bow Church- yard, London, the only Venders of this Ointment. Merchants, & c. will have good Allowance to sell again. The Ointment, in Tin Boxes, Price is. 6d. each, is a Remedy ( never known to fail) for all cutaneous Disorders, without Con finement, Daubing, or the least offensive Smell. It exter- minates all the redundant and peccant Humours, by in- sensible Perspiration. There never was any Perfon that used this Remedy for the Itch ( if they followed the Di- rection) who could come a Month after and say, it had not taken the desired Effect and it gives the Patient an Opportunity of doing his daily Business as usual, being always clean ; whereas mostly, in the Cure of this Dis- order, an Ointment for the whole Body is applied, which is making the Remedy worse than the Disease. Note, The great Similitude between the ITCH and the SCURVY, occasions our mentioning Dr. RADCLIFFE'S ELIXIR, as the best Remedy for the ScURVY, if taken Spring and Fall. Out of the many Certificates of Cures that are daily sent us, for want of Room, we can only insert fhe following : This is to certify whom it may concern, That, about four Years ago, our Son Thomas, a Youth, was afflicted with a violent Scorbutic Disorder, had a Scurf all over his Body, and spotted like one in the Measles, which re- duced him very weak, and afFected his Speech. When he was in this Condition, we applied to several Surgeons, See. in this Town, and got him recommended to the In- firmary as an Out- Patient; and finding he got little or no Relief from the Medicines he had from thence, or else- where, we were advised to try a Medicine, called Dr. Radcliffe's Famous Purging Elixir ; and that, after taking the first Dose, he threw off his Stomach a great Quantity of red, tough, frothish Matter, which he continued to do after every Dose, during the first Bottle ; he had a se- cond Bottle, which purged and created him an Appetite. He continued to take a few Bottles more of the said Elixir, which, with one Bottle of Dr. Bateman's Pecto- ral Drops ( taken alternately) through the Blessing of the Almighty, soon restored him to a perfect State of Health, and he has had no Return of the Disorder since j which we voluntarily publish for the Benefit of others under the like Affliction, as Witness my Hand, Daniel Crisp, Smith and Farrier, at West Gate, Newcastle upon Tyne. Witness, T. Slack and Stephen Mandley. Also a Gentlewoman and her Daughter in Leicester, who had for a long Time lain under the Misfortune of a dreadful Scorbutic Humour, and could find no Relief, though it cost her many Pounds to Doctors, were at last perfectly cured by this Elixir only. N. B. We advise and desire all such Persons, whose Distempers have been of a long Continuance, not to med- dle with this Medicine unless they are resolved to go thro' with it; and then they need not fear as happy a Cure as a Gentleman of Bristol, who writes Word that he had been lpng afflicted with an inveterate Scurvy, which had brought him into a Consumption, so that he was looked upon as incurable. He declares, that by taking two Bot- tles of Dr. RADCLIFFE'S Elixir, and two of Dr. BATE- MAN'S Perctoral Drops, he was capacitated to walk to a Friend's House, 11 Miles from the Place of his Resi- dence, and that in five Hours, though for Months before he had not been able to stand, his Pains had all left him, his Ulcers were dried up, and he remained as well as ever he Was in his Life. DICEY and Company appoint the above, and their other genuine Medicines, to be sold by R. Raikes, in Glocester. EDWARDS's Tincture for the Ague. THIS Tincture is a certain and infallible Cure for the Ague, when the Bark and all other Medicines have been used without Effect. N. B. One Bottle is sufficient for a grown Person, Sold ( by Appointment of Mr. Edwards) at the Print- ing- Office in Glocester, Price 2s. the Bottle. The SCORBUTIC WATEr. THIS Medicine is the strongest Antidote against that loathlome Disease called the ITCH that has yet been made known to the World, No . In- stance hath ever been seen of its failing to extirpate the Disorder with all its malignant Consequenes. A won- derful Proof of its Efficacy lately appeared m the remark- able Cure of a Woman of 30 Years of Age, who hnd laboured under this Distemper from her Childhood; she had been seven Months in the Infirmary at Shrewsbury, and 13 Months in that at Bath ; had, been salivated in both, and turned out of both covered with Sores as incu- rable ; yet after that was made perfectly whole with two or three Bottles of this most excellent Medicine. It is sold for no more than 1s. the Bottle, that the Poor may enjoy the Benefit of its salutary Effects The Application is entirely free from whatever is dis- agreeable either in Smell or Dawb.

Of whom may be had, Dr. JAMES's MILD POWDER for the Disorders above mentioned, which is prepared from the same Materials as the other Powder, but so contrived as to have little or no sensible Operation, and on that Account is the more proper tor Women under certain Circumstances, infants, and those whose Constitutions are extremely delicate.
