VOL. XLVI. MONDAY, September 21, 1767. the town, the Spanish Commodore brought them hither, as he was likewise in want of pro- visions, having bread left only for 48 hours. Last night a courier was dispatched to Madrid for orders where they must be carried to, as the towns belonging to the Republic in Corsica are filled with those that are already landed ; and another vessel is daily expected from Car- thagena with about 50 more. Letters from Calvi of the 25th say, that hostilities were committed daily between the Republic's troops in garrison and the Corsicans: that on the 24th a smart skirmish happened ; and that the Corsicans had been dislodged from the convent of St. Frances, which was almost destroyed by the bomb- shells and cannon- shot fired from the castle.— Gazette. Vienna, August 29. The last letters from Constantinople, which are of the first of this month, bring, that the plague reigns there in almost all the quarters of the city, and that it has manifested itself in the fuburbs of Pera and Galata. They add, that on the 30th of July, the Interpreter of the Resident of Russia having been sent for by the Grand Vizir, had a conference of two hours with him ; and that some persons presumed that a great difference was arisen between the two empires. Paris, Sept. 4. The King having permitted, by his letters of May last, all foreigners to take up licences for carrying on arts and manufac- tures, the Jews thought themselves compre- hended in this edict, and availed themselves of the letters to be admitted, not only into com- merce and the arts, but also to obtain in France a kind of denizenship, which has been con- stantly refused them in France in all ages, and in all places. However, the six trading com- panies and the merchants of this city, justly alarmed at these pretensions, have presented a petition to his Majesty, in which they expose and prove by arguments, supported by histori- cal facts, that the Jews cannot, consistently with their principles, act otherwise than so as to disgrace and ruin trade. In consequence thereof, they pray that the declaration of 1715, with the arrets and other subsequent regulations touching the expulsion of the Jews, may be executed in due form and tenour ; that they may be prohibited from settling in the king- dom, together with an order for such among them as have taken up licences to bring them in, on condition that the sums paid for them be restored. Mr. Chobert, a very famous player on the harpsichord, belonging to the Prince of Conti's band, together with a physician and six other perfons, are dead of eating mushrooms, which they had gathered in the wood of Boulogne. Rotterdam, Sept. 8. It is surprising to see the change and turn of things. England that used to furnish this place with such quantities of corn, is now supplied from hence: and this place, so famous for fish, had two English fishing boats, which brought cod and haddock to our market this day. It is true, the fish were not so fine as those our fishermen generally bring. COUNTRY NEWS. Newcastle, Sept. 12. We are advised from Balin Bush, near Carlisle, that a mare tethered nigh a garden in which were several hives of bees, happened to leap over the hedge and overturned four of the hives, by which acci- dent the bees were so enraged, and stung her so desperately, that she died immediately, tho' all possible care was taken ; and what adds to this misfortune, an old man and his son, in endeavouring to save the mare, were also so much stung by the bees, that their lives were despaired of for some days, though now re- covering. Bristol, September 12. The two vessels that arrived in the road some time ago from Barbary ( who were falsely reported to have the plague on board) are performing quarantine. They are laden with a great quantity of excellent corn, which, we are informed, is liable to pay duty, as the act, allowing the importation, does not extend to corn imported from thence. This will certainly make a considerable diffe- rence to the importer, if insisted on, and we fear the city and neighbourhood will be de- prived of the two cargoes, as they intend to return without unloading. Reading, Sept. 12. Our wheat harvest is en- tirely finished, and the crops in general are ex- ceeding fine and plentiful. LONDON, September 15. St. James's, Sept. 12. The King has been pleased to grant unto the Right Hon. William Lord Mansfield, Chief Justice of his Majesty's Court of King's Bench, the office of Chan- cellor of his Majesty's Exchequer, in the room of the Right Hon. Charles Townshend, de ceased.— Gazette. The new negotiation for a new fet of Minis- ters advances daily. Yesterday the Right Hon. the Earl of Hert- ford had the honour of a conference with his Majesty at Kew. Lord Chatham is said to be much better since his retirement into the West; but it is believed will never undertake any public business again. Yesterday there was a very numerous meet- ing of the Gentlemen, Clergymen, and Free- holders of the county of Surry at Epsom: there never appeared a greater unanimity than in the nomination of the present Members, George Onflow, Esq; and Sir Francis Vincent, as candidates for Members of the ensuing Par- liament. By letters from Yorkshire, we learn, that the wheat is got in throughout that and the neigh- bouring counties, and that the crops in general turn out very fine. Extract of a Letter from Dublin, Sept. 8. " Yesterday, about six o'clock in the even- ing, as some gentlemen were sitting under a markee in a field at Santry, they were sur- prized by a most violent gust of wind, which lifted them, with the tent, table, glasses, & c. a considerable space off the ground, by which the glasses were all broken, and some of the company much hurt. Between seven and eight the same evening, soon after high water, the water in the Liffy suddenly sunk about two feet, and in a moment after rose upwards of four feet, and immediately fell to its proper level ; on this occasion several vessels received con- siderable damage, by being drove from their moorings, & c. It is apprehended from this extraordinary phoenomenon, that an earthquake has happened somewHere, as an event of the same kind was felt at Corke at the time of the great earthquake at Lisbon." On Saturday evening, about six o'clock, was ended the trial of Elizabeth Brownrigg, for the wilful murder of Mary Clifford, her ap- prentice girl, when she was found guilty; and yesterday morning she was carried in a cart from Newgate, attended by two clergymen, amidst a very numerous croud of spectators, and executed at Tyburn, and her body was afterwards taken to Surgeon's- Hall for dissec- ion. Before she left Newgate that morning, her husband and son received the sacrament with her, and afterwards took leave of her. She appeared very penitent in the way to, and at the place of execution ; and a few minutes before she was turned off, being very weak, the clergyman at her desire informed the spectators, that she owned the justice of her sentence, and desired all persons to take warning by her fate, and not give way to cruelty.— Her husband and son Were acquitted of the murder, but are detained to be tried upon another indictment, for beating and wounding the surviving ap- prentice- girl. From a Narrative just pub- lished, by Mr. John Wingrave, one of the Constables of the Ward of Farringdon Without, we have the following account of Elizabeth Brownrigg, and of the cruelties she inflicted on her apprentice girls.—" Elizabeth Brownrigg was at the time of her execution about 47 years of age. She had been married to James Brownrigg about 20 years: they always lived together upon very good terms, and have had 15 children, three of whom are now living, and to these she has always been a tender and affectionate mother. At the time of their marriage she lived a servant in the family cf one Mr. R , in Prescot- Street, Goodman's- Fields; and Brownrigg served his time to a painter in the same neighbourhood. After their marriage they settled at Greenwich, where he carried on the business of a painter, and con- tinued about five years; the remaining 15 years they have lived in London. For some time past Mrs. Brownrigg has practised midwifry, which she learnt under Dr. K y; and about two years since she was appointed by the Overseer: of St. Dustan's in the West, to act as midwife to the poor women of their workhouse. " Notwithstanding the many reports that have been spread, with a view to make it be be- lieved that these people have had a great num- ber of apprentice- girls, all of whom they have treated with equal cruelty, yet after the most diligent enquiry it does not appear that they have had any more than three. The first of these was Mary Mitchell, who was bound to Brownrigg by the Overseers of White- Friars precinct, some day in February 1765. " It is natural to infer, that this girl expe- rienced a great deal of hard treatment from these people, tho' sometimes indulged with going abroad for after she had been there about twelve months she ran away ; however, she was met in the street by the youngest son the same day, and by him brought back to his father. ' Till this happened, it does not ap- pear that the girl was ever tied up and whipped naked; but now these cruelties were frequently inflicted, and she was from henceforth never suffered to stir out of doors. " Mrs. Brownrigg, who took women into her house to lie in privately, had at one time French woman there, to whOm Mary Mitchell related, her sufferings, but at the same time gave her a charge of secrecy lest she should be pUnished for revealing them. This French woman, however, soon after having a misun- derstanding with Mrs. Brownrigg, could not forbear reproaching her with her barbarities ; upon which this horrid woman instantly flew to the girl, and thrusting a pair of scissars which she had in her hands into her mouth, cut her tongue in two places. " Another circumstance of unexampled cru- ety, which this girl imputes to her mistress, is the following :— On the day she was discovered, it was observed by some one present that her eyes appeared very red, and much blood- shot; and it being asked what occasioned them to look so, she anfwered that her mistress would sometimes come to her, and fixing a hand on either cheek, would draw them down her face with so much force, as to occasion the blood to start from her eyes. " The second apprentice was Mary Jones, who, I find by the books kept at the Foundling Hospital, was bound out by that corporation to James Brownrigg, on 15th of May, 1765. This child could not have continued with him but little more than two months, because, on the 24th of July, 1765, the following order was entered on the books of the hospital. ' ORDERED, " That Mr. Plumptree, the Hospital Sollicitor, do write to James Brown- rigg, a Painter in Fetter- Lane, who had the child, Mary Jones, apprenticed to him by this corporation, and acquaint him, that if he does not forthwith make satisfaction for the abuse to the said child, that this corpo- ration will prosecute him with the utmost severity.' " The abuse, however, which induced this girl to run away from Brownrigg's, and which occasioned the above order, was frequent whip- pings by Mrs. Brownrigg, and at other times, particularly when the girl has been washing any of the rooms or stairs, she has found fault with her work, and taking her up in her arms, repeatedly dipped her over head and ears, in the pail of water that flood by. By these cruel operations, the girl received many hurts in all parts of her body, and more particularly in her neck and shoulders, from the edges and bale of the pail. " Mary Clifford, the unhappy victim of this woman's infernal cruelty, was the third ap- prentice, and she was bound out by the Over- seers of White- Friars Precinct, to James Brownrigg, on the 18th of February 1766."— An account cf the cruel usage of this unfortunate girl; her death ; the Coroner's verdict; the ap prehending of her mistress, . having been al- ready given in this Journal, it will be unnecessary to repeat them here. THEATRICAL INTELLIGENCE. THE theatrical campaign is opened sooner than usual; and the operations on both sides will be carried on with vigour and alacrity. The experienced dictator of Drury- Lane will undoubtedly exert all his dexterity ne quid detrimenti capiat respublica ; while the Quatuor- virate of Covent- Garden will be careful to watch all his motions, and guard against a surprize. Major- General Powel, who so suc- cessfully led the bands of tragedy in the service of the other party, is now employed in that of Covent- Garden, where he has also a principal seat in the council of war. They likewise rely much on the sagacity and address of Field- Marshal Colman, who has the chief direction of the artillery.— Drury Lane Theatre opened on Saturday with the Clandestine Marriage; and Covent- Garden Theatre on Monday with the Rehearsal, and an Occasional Prologue, spoken by Mr. Powel, and written by Paul White- head, Esq; Radnorshire MILITIA. TH E Balloted Men for the said County, or their Substitutes sworn and enrolled, are required to atttnd on Thursday the first of October next, at twelve o'Clock in the Forenoon of the same Day at the Town of Presteign in the said County, to enter upon, and perform their Annual Exercise for 28 Days- By Order of the Lord Lieutenant of the said County.

RAIKES, Have seen, with sorrow, the history of a late famous ne- gotiation in your Journal of the 7th instant. It appears to me an humbling picture of human nature, more espe- cially of that part of the human species that is gene-. rally considered in a more dignified situation than the rest of mankind. I blush to read the professions of patriotism of the leaders of the different parties: " Such a one will sacrifice himself, and heartily concur with a new Ad- ministration." But— all their friends must be provided for ! Pray who are those very poor men, these friends of theirs? Are they in want of daily bread ? Are their families star- ving? Then let them apply to the parish officers, who, by my laws, are obliged to pro- vide for the indigent and destitute. Is it their ambition, their avarice, and petulant disposition that must be provided for and satiated ? May eternal disappointment meet them whatever way they turn ; and may no coalition ever be formed on that rotten foundation It is not by such worthless instruments that I am to be restored to health and vigour. I want patriots of easy circumstances, of moderate desires, of noble disinterested spirits, who prefer, above all means selfish, partial interests and even above family connections, the true, the solid, and permanent welfare of Great- Britain ; men who think their paternal estates a sufficient stake in the common wealth, to interest them deeply in her peace and prosperity. I will not go back to antique records for the noble spirit of Aristides, who magnanimously go- verned the state, leaving his family to the care of that state which he had so generously served. Let them look into the succeeding paragraph of your Journal of the same date, where they may read with confusion and shame, an in- stance of public spirit, magnanimity, and self- denial, in a Frenchman, worthy the greatest Roman. " I am in easy circumstances, or so happy in point of fortune, as to be able to bear the extraordinary expence I have been put to, and to serve my Prince without being chargeable to the state." Blush, ye pseudo patriots! ye would- be- great men, hide your beads, and amuse the world no more with vain pretences! A land of slaves ( as we are taught) exhibits an instance ot public spirit and genuine patriotism, long unknown in our land of boasted liberty ! While you make Smithfield bargains, you never will, you never can, serve your country effectually. The world ( foolish as it is) will never believe that a man of 10,0001. a year, condescends to receive a salary of 5000I. more of an exhausted distressed country, for doing little or nothing, merely to serve the community. The people's eyes are now opened, even with respect to their own favourite; and they will be hard of belief to any new pretender. The game of amusing the public is now over with this generation ; they now look for actions, not for words; they seek redress from manifold abuses, grievances,- and dangers; bombast and fustian will no longer please a deluded- people: if you are in ject, they are in earnest ; their case is serious, and requires a speedy remedy ; no time is to be lost : while you debate and quarrel among yourselves, the public hastens to the brink of irretrievable ruin, and the destruction of The CONSTITUTION. P. S. Why all this outcry about the Favourite, the Thane, or whatever hard name you please to call him ?' Have ye not all in your turns been united with him ? Have ye not been in his councils, and many of you been trusted with his secrets one after another ? Do not moft of you know his machinations ? Why then do you not do your injured country justice, by bringing the obnoxious man to public tryal, to meet the vengeance of an injured people in a legal way of solemn, national justice ? This you owe to your country ; and if you do not perform this duty, you either think him inno- cent, or you are equally culpable with him.— Take your choice. T H U R S D A Y's POST.

COWBRIDGE, July 12. To the Gentlemen, Clergy, and Freeholders of the County of GLAMORGAN. GENTLEMEN, THAT generous and uninfluenced Support, which at tke late general Meeting manifested itself so greatly in my Favour, by a Superiority confessed in the Actions of my Opponents, though palliated in their Expressions, demands from me my warmest acknow- ledgments : The like respectable Appearance on a late public Occasion , and the vigorous Diffusion of so spi- rited a ConduCt through the whole County ( so amply experienced by my Son on his late Canvas, which you were so indulgent to me as to permit) give me the fairest Assurances that the same laudable Spirit of Freedom, which hath so often marked out and distin- guished the County of Glamorgan in its Choice of Re- presentatives, will on this Occasion also secure to me the Continuance of so honourable an Influence; and though my late Illness hath given me the sensible Mor- tification of being prevented from paying you my per- sonal RespeCts, yet the very Occasion hath, from the ACtivity of my Friends, happily brought forth a more powerful Assistance than my own Assiduity could have flattered me with, and hath added that essential Mark of their Favour, which neither Time nor. Ill- ness can eradicate out of the Heart of one who hopes his past and future Conduct will speak his fixed Atten- tion to the welfare and Interest of his ConstitUents, and of his being at all Times, GENTLEMEN, Your faithful and much honoured friend, Countryman, and Servant, EDMOND THOMAS.

DOWNTON, Sept. 2. To the Free and Worthy Burgesses of New Radnor, Rhyader, Knighton, Knucklas, and Kevencleece. GENTLEMEN, HAVING, ever esteemed the Peace and Quiet of the Country of the utmost Consequence, I should not thus early have presumed to solicit your Favours in this public Manner, had not an Advertisement for that Purpose already appeared: Permit me therefore ( encouraged by a very great Majority of Gentlemen in the County) to offer myself a Candidate at the en- suing Election ; and if on that Day I should be so for- tunate as to find myself possessed of the important Trust which my Family has been favoured with near fifty Years, I shall ever think it a Duty incumbent on me, by a steady and invariable Attention to the Interest of my Country and yourselves, to prove myself not alto- gether undeserving of your Confidence. I am, GENTLEMEN, With the utmost Respect Your most obedient Servant, HARpTON, Sept. 15. JOHN LEWIS.

According to private letters from a certain kingdom, our Embassador has been received with a coldness by that Court which seemed to promise but very indifferent success to his ne- gotiations. ExtraCt of a letter from a Gentleman at Malaga, July 12, 1767, to his friend in London. " It is impossible to express the implacable hatred many of the inhabitants of this place shew to the English Protestants, which appeared in their declaration, that they would not let the body of our late worthy Consul, Nathaniel Ware, Esq; rest in peace in his grave ; on which account it was privately interred in the dead of night, attended only by three or four English merchants'; the next evening the flags were hoisted on board the ships in the harbour, and the guns were fired as is usual at the interrment of any great personage, by which device the inhabitants were disappointed in their Scheme. The reason of their shewing this resentment was occasioned by some gentlemen, in Mr. Ware's house, not bowing to the host as it passed by the window, a few months before ; in con- sequence of which three Priests broke into the house of one of the young gentlemen present, with an intent to assassinate him, from whom he received twelve dangerous wounds in the head and body ; but happily survived. A letter from on board his Majesty's ship Dolphin, dated Port Famine, Jan. 20, 1767, says, " On the 28th of September, we left St. Jago, sailed for the streights of Magellan, and arrived there after three Months voyage. When we approached the shore, we were followed by great number of men on horseback; and in the evening we anchored off Cape Virgin Mary ; in the morning there were upon the beach near 300 Patagonians hallooing to us. The Cap- tain went on shore with three boats manned and armed; and, to be sure of their height, he carried a standard on shore, and measured seve- ral of them, and found them to be about seven feet high. The Captain brought five of them on board, and gave them victuals and drink, ribbonds, beads, and other things. They are well proportioned to their height; their horses are about the same size with ours; and they have cane spurs, and thong whips. Their cloathing is the skins of wild beasts. They seemed very much pleased, and hallooed us a great way through the Streights. On the 29th of December we arrived at this placc ; it is a desolate spot, nothing but wood and mountains of Snow. It is a very cold climate, but plen- tiful for wood and water, wild fowl, and fish." They write from Mobille, in West Florida, that a Spanish man, of war, with a regiment of foot on board from the Havannah to New Orleans, was lately cast away in the Gulph of Mexico, when the ship was entirely lost, and part of the people taken prisoners by the Indians.

" Mr. Higgins's trial came on yesterday at ten o'clock, and lasted ' till four in the after- noon. He was charged with feloniously and burglariously breaking into the house of Lady Maude, between the 26th and 27th of June last, and taking from thence a book called the Universal Pocket Companion, value 2s. 6d. " The first evidence proved, that he met Higgins on the 26th of June, between four and five o'clock in the afternoon, within 100 yards of Lady Maude's house. " The second witness, who was the Lady's Housemaid, said, that 0n the 27th of June, between five and fix in the morning, she found the front door open; and, as it was not usual for the servants to pass and re- pass that way, this gave her a suspicion that the house had been broken open and robbed. On further inspection she found a ladder raised to a parlour window, which was opened, and another ladder lying at a little distance on the Bowling Green ; upon which she called the Butler, who was then in bed, and acquainted him with these parti- culars. All the windows up stairs, she be- lieves, were shut as usual. " The Butler deposed, that on the 26th, at dusk, he locked and secured the front door and parlour windows as usual, but found the door open, as the maid described, and the two sashes of the parlour windows raised up about a foot, the inside shutters well secured as he left them the night before, with a strong bar laid across. He saw also the two ladders as before described, at some distance on the Green, a trunk open, with loose papers lying about it, which he knew to be the trunk belonging to his Lady's Agent. " The Gardener deposed, that he and an- other man came towards the Bowling- Green between five and six o'clock, and found the trunk, & c. as the others had described. The ladders, he said, he had made use of the day before in pinning up some wall trees at some distance from the house, and that they were removed from the place where he left them. " The trunk and book were produced in court, and proved to be the property of Lady Maude.— In the lock of the trunk was found the ward- end of a key broken in the lock, and, when the prisoner was taken, there had been found upon him the remaining part of the key. The two parts were compared in court, and proved by a smith to belong to each other. " Notwithstanding the efforts of his Coun- sellor, the jury brought him in guilty of bur- glary and felony; and this morning the Judge, in terms most affecting, passed fentence of death upon him.— When the question was put to him by the court, Of what he had to say why sen- tence of death should not be passed upon him ? he replied, that he had been used very ill. " He has wept incessantly ever since the jury brought in their verdict. " At our assizes two others also received sen- tence of death, Evan Morgan and Wm. Harry for horsestealing.— It appeared upon the trial of Evan Morgan, that he had stolen and sold the same three different times." By another letter from our Carmarthen cor- respondent, dated September 17, we have re- ceived the following particulars :—" A second indictment was found against Higgins for enter- ing Mrs. Bevan's house; but as he was con- victed upon the first, the court did not try him upon that.— He appears to labour under great dejection of spirits, and makes no answer to the questions proposed to him by numbers of people who, out of curiosity, flock to see him. He is heavy loaded with irons, and the gaoler watches him with great vigilance, to prevent his escape.—' Tis said his wife is gone to London to sollicit a reprieve, though most think with little probability of success. To the many crimes now attributed to this man, is that of breaking open the Custom- House at Swansea, and stealing from thence 450I." *,* The STAMP- OFFICE is removed by Mr. COCKS, to his House in the Upper College Churchyard, near the Coffee- House.

Paynes, Bankers. OCCASIONAL PROLOGUE spoken by Mr. POWEL at the Opening OF COVENT- GARDEN THEATRE, on Monday Night last, with the REHEARSAL, under the Direction of the New MANAGERS. Written by Paul Whitehead, Esa AS when the merchant, to increase his store, For dubious seas, advent'rous quits the shore, Still anxious for his freight, he trembling sees Rocks in each buoy, and tempests in each breeze ; The curling wave to mountain billows swells, And every cloud a fancied storm foretels : Thus rashly launch'd on this Theatric main, Our All on board, each phantom gives us pain; The cat- call's note seems thunder in our ears, And every hiss a hurricane appears. In journal squibs we lightning's blast espy ; And Meteors blaze in every critic's eye. Spite of these terrors, still some hopes we view; Hopes ne'er can fail us— since they're plac'd in you : Your breath the gale, our voyage is secure, And safe the venture, which Your smiles ensure. . Tho' weak his skill, the adventurer must succced, Where candour takes th' endeavour for the deed. For Brentford's state two kings could once suffice, In Ours, behold ! four Kings of Brentford rise ; All smelling to one nosegay's odorous favour, The balmy nosegay— of the public favour. From hence alone our royal funds we draw, Your pleasure our support, Your will our law. While such our government, we hope you'll own us; But should we ever tyrants prove— dethrone us ! Like brother monarchs, who, to coax the nation, Begin their reigns with some fair proclamation, We too should talk at least of Reformation; Declare, that, during our imperial sway, No bard shall mourn his long- neglected play : But then, the play must have some wit, some spirit, And we allow'd sole umpires of its merit. For those deep sages of the judging pit, Whose taste is too refin'd for modern wit, From Rome's great theatre we'll cull the piece, And plant, on Britain's stage, the flowers of Greece. If some there are, our British bards can please, Who taste the antient wit of antient days, Be Ours, to save from Time's devouring womb Their works; and snatch their laurels from the tomb. For you, ye fair, who sprightlier scenes may chuse, Where Music decks in all her airs the Muse ; Gay Opera shall all its charms dispense, Yet boast no tuneful triumph over sense ; The nobler bard shall still assert his right, Nor HANDEL rob A SHAKESPEARE of his night. To greet their mortal brethren of our skies, Here all the Gods of Pantomime shall rise ; Yet, ' midst the pomp and magic of machines, Same plot may mark the meaning of our scenes ; Scenes which were held, in good King RICH'S days, By sages, no bad epilogues to plays. If terms like these, your suffrage can engage To fix our mimic empire of the stage; Confirm our title, in your fair opinions, And croud each night, to people our dominions.
