The Edinburgh Evening Courant. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3. 1767 HUMOUROUS EFFECTS occasioned by Cross- reading the NEWS - PAPERS. Yesterday the new board of treasury met, | and every one present expressed the highest satisfac- tion. On Sunday next the court will go into mourning ; | more particulars are expected relating to this black affair ; And in a few days will remove from Richmond | to the condemned hole where they are to lye. The sun has. been observed not to shine for some days, | occasioned by the undue influence of a certain nobleman. Never was known such mild weather at this season, | owing to the spirited conduct of the E. of Ch-- m. On Monday the powder mills at Hounslow blew up; | this report merits confirmation. Yesterday there was a grand board of ordnance; | the shock of which was felt many miles off. One of his Majesty's principal Secretaries of State | fell off the shafts, being asleep, and the wheels went over him. Tis said the ministry is to be modelled; | the repairs of which will cost the public a large sum annu- ally. This has occasioned a cabinet council to be held | at Hetty's fruit shop in St. James's street Friends of the favourite will be totally excluded ; | the harvest in the north being almost over. The M s of R will again be at the head of administration. | N. B. He can produce a good character from his last place. It is now said the expected changes will not take place, | owing to the wicked arts of engrossers and monopolizers. On Tuesday both houses of convocation met; | books shut, nothing done; By which means several felons made their escape, | Same day a terrible fire broke out. India stock rose to 271 | and it was some time before it could be got under; Being St Patrick's day, the tutelar saint of Ireland, | the standing committee will sit at twelve: it was observed with the usual demonstrations of joy, | whereby much damage was done in the cellars about Westminster. Yefterday a quantity of new guineas were issued at the Tower ; I let no one doubt the efficacy of the medicine. At the above office, may be had fhares of tickets and chances, | if there be any yet afflicted with this disease. We are affured that Lord T e will accept of a place ; | it operates as an alternative, and produ- ces a wonderful change. i It is said an act will pass next sessions, | and will keep good for years, even in the West Indies. Aged 76, Was married to a young girl of eighteen; | the reason of his committing this rash action is not known. With every qualification to render the married state happy, | of no use to any person but the owner. Last night a gentleman cut his throat from ear to ear ; | Rasors may be had of a new construction. On Friday the price of corn at Bear Key fell | from a scaffold in Cheapside, and was terribly bruis- ed Yesterday a large flock of geese and turkies | was committed to the Poultry Compter for further exa- mination. " We hear that Mr Wilkes is writing a history of England ; | he was convicted of the like offence at the assizes in 1763. His house was burglariously broke open and robbed | by virtue of warrant under the hand and seal ; A truly patriotic scheme was moved in an august assembly ; | and extinguished without doing much damage. Yesterday a man was indicted for committing a rape, I and upon trial the scheme was found to be im- practicable. It is faid that A— n B— d will not go to the south of France, | another wild beast having appeared in the Gevaudan. Yesterday ended the sessions at the Old Bailey, | of the utmost use in peopling our new colonies. At this sessions three were ordered to be branded. | *,* None are genuine but such as have this mark. On Monday died universally lamented, | and there were great rejoicings on this happy occasion. To the curious in Bacon. | He was reckoned the fattest man in England next to Mr Bright. " We hear that a treaty of marriage is concluded | for 20 I a side, between the noted dyer and the fa- mous Naylor. The ceremony was performed at St James's church, | and they instantly made off across the heath. An agreeable young lady with a fortune of 10.000I. | This is inserted as a caution to those who are fond of bargains. The mansion house being newly repaired and beautified, | Patrick Gahagan was confined in one of the cells. Yesterday on the parade a soldier received 5oo lashes | apply as above, and you shall have the same reward. To be disposed of by private contract, | in the room of their late member, created a peer ; his lordship arrived from abroad in perfect health, | to the great grief of that noble family. India stock fell yesterday 2, | the proprietors being content with a moderate profit. Lost or mislaid by carelessness, | an opportunity of getting 20 per cent. Yesterday an old house fell down in St Giles's ; | a total wreck, but the crew are saved. On Sunday next a Charity sermon will be preached, | and great quantities of beer given to the popu- lace. Eloped from her husband, Mary, the wife of Simon, I a light dun, with a black mane and tail. An academy is opened for the instruction of youth, | in order that none may pretend ignorance. The Pope's letter to the most christian king concludes thus : | " I am your humble servant, Coriolanus Copplestone," he has just opened a house for inoculation ; | tt Be careful to have the right sort. On Monday lady M kissed his Majesty's hand | and was committed to St Giles's Round- house. To be let a house pleasantly situated, | removed from over the way. The late copartnership is dissolved | Between the hours of twelve and three. Whereas it often happens that people are in want of money, | 500I. are ready to be given to any lady or gentleman. \ Wanted, a genteel place under the government; it is of singular use to those who are to speak in public. Miss Trusler Continues to make the rich feed cakes, | for preventing the decays of age, and lengthening human life. Genteel places in any of the public offices, | So much admired by the nobility and gentry. An ELEGY written on HARVEST. FAREWEL the pleasant violet scented shade ; The primros'd hill, and daisy mantled mead; The furrow'd land, with springing corn array'd; The sunny wall with bloomy branches spread : Farewel the bow'r with blushing roses gay ; Farewel the fragrant trefoil purpled field ; Farewel the walk thro' rows of new mown- hay, When evening breezes mingled odours yield. Farewel to these— now round the lonely farms Where jocund Plenty deigns to fix her seat; Th' autumnal landscape, op'ning all its charms, Declares kind Nature's annual work complete In different parts what diff'rent views delight, Where on neat ridges waves the golden grain; Or where the bearded barley, dazzling white, Spreads o'er the steepy slope or wide champain.' The smile of morning gleams along the hills; And wakeful labour calls her sons abroad : They leave with cheerful look their lowly vills; And bid the fields resign their riptn'd load. To various talks address the rustic band, And here the scythe, and there the sickle wield j Or rear the new- bound sheaves along the land, Or range in heaps the produce of the field. Some build the shocks, some load the spacious wains, Some lead to shelt'ring barns the fragrant corn, Some from tall ricks, that tow'ring o'er the plains, For many miles the rural yards adorn ———• Th' inclosure gates thrown open, all around, The stubble's peopled by the gleaning throng. The rattling car with verdant branches crown'd, And joyful swains, that raise the clam'rous song, Soon mark glad harvest o'er Ye rural lords, Whose wide domains o'er Albion's isle extend ; Think whole kind hand your annual wealth af- fords. And bid to Heav'n your grateful praise ascend. For thro' no gift spontaneous of the ground Rose these fair crops that made your valleys smile, Tho' the blithe youth of every hamlet round, Pursu'd for these thro' many a day their toil; Yet what avail your labours or your cares ? Can all your labours all your cares supply, Bright suns, or soft'ning show'rs, or tepid airs. Or one indulgent influence of the sky ? For Providence decrees that we obtain, With toil, each blessing destin'd to our use; But means to teach us that our toil is vain, If he the bounty of his hand refuse Yet Albion, blame not what thy crime demands. While this sad truth the blushing Muse betrays, More frequent echoes o'er thy harvest lands, The voice of riot than the voice of praise. Prolific tho' thy fields, and mild thy clime, Know realms once fam'd for fields and climes as fair, Have fell the prey of Famine, War, and Time, And now no semblance of their glory bear. Ask Palestine, proud Asia's early boast, [ oil? Where now the groves that pour'd her wine and Where the fair towns that crown'd her wealthy coast, [ foil ? Where the glad swains that till'd her fertile Ask, and behold, and mourn her hapless fall ! Where rose fair towns, where wav'd the golden grain ? Thron'd on the naked rock, and mould'ring wall. Pale Want and Ruin held their dreary reign. Where Jordan's valleys smil'd in living green, Where Sharon's flow'rs disclos'd their varied hues ; The wand'ring pilgrim views the alter'd scene, And drops the tear of pity as he views. Ask Grecia mourning o'er her ruin'd tow'rs ; Where now the prospects charm'd her Bards of old, Her corn- clad mountains and Elysian how'rs, And silver streams thro' fragrant meadows roll'd ? « Where Freedom's praise along the vale was heard, ! And town to town return'd the favour'd sound Where patriot War her awful standard rear'd, And brav'd the millions Persia pour'd around There Freedom's praise no more the valley cheers, In here patriot War no more her banner waves, , Nor bard, nor sage, nor martial chiefs appears; But stern Barbarians rule a land of slaves. \ Of mighty realms are such the poor, remains! Of mighty realms that fell when mad with : pow'r, i They lur'd each voice to revel on their plains; I Each mother doom'd their offspring to devour O Albion wouldst thou shun their mournful fates, To shun their follies, and. their crimes be thine ; i And woo to linger in thy fair retreat, The radiant virtue's progeny divine ! Bright Truth, the noblest of the sacred land, Sweet Peace whose brow no ruffling frown de- Fair Charity with ever open hand, [ forms; And Courage finding, midst a thousand storms. A mail from Holland. From the LONDON GAZETTE, Sept. 29. Whitehall, September 29. ON Sunday last Captain Wrottesley arrived here from Monaco, with the melancholy ac- count, that his Royal Highness Edward Augustus, Duke of York and Albany, died at that place on the 17th inst about eleven o'clock in the morning, of a malignant fever, after a severe illness of four- teen days, to the great grief of their Majesties and all the Royal Family. The body was opened and embalmed; and was ordered by Commodore Spry to be put on board his Majesty's ship Montreal, Captain Cosby, to be brought to England. Lord Chamberlain s Office, Sept. 29 1767.

A letter just received from Corsica advises. that a French Commissary ar- rived at Ajaccio, had given orders to the Malcon- tents to retire immediately from that place; with which they complained without resistance. LONDON. On Sunday evening his Majesty came privately from Richmond to the Queen's house, where a Ca- binet- Council was held, and an order immediately sent away express for the removal of the corpse ot his Royal Highness the Duke of York to England, with all convenient speed. Yesterday expresses were dispatched to Den- mark, Brunswick, and other Courts, to notify the death of his Royal Highness the Duke of York. The drawing room and levees at St James's, we are informed, will be discontinued for some weeks, on account of the death of his late Royal Highness This morning several of the Nobility and Gen- try went out of town, with compliments of con- dolance to their Majesties on the much lamented death of his Royal Highness the Duke of York. Orders are given for the Chapel Royal at St James's to be got in readiness for their Majesties to hear divine service on Sunday next. This day it began to be new matted ; the other workmen ha- ving done, several quarts of vinegar were last night sprinkled over the floor of it, to prevent the offen- five smell of the paint. Yesterday an order was sent to the managers of both theatres, to suspend acting till further orders. Yesterday a messenger was sent to the Earl of Hertford, and also to several of the Lords, & c. of the Privy Council, to repair immediately to town on affairs of importance This day the Princess Royal entered into the second year of her age; but on account of the late Duke of York's death, their Majesties we hear did not publicly receive any compliments on the oc- casion. It was this morning reported, that the East In- dia Company's troops had lately defeated a body of the Morattoes, and totally dispersed them. They write from Mobille in West Florida, that the Governor of New Orleans had at length con- cluded a treaty of peace and friendship with the neighbouring Indians, having for that purpose distributed many rich presents among the Chiefs. On Saturday the Purser of the Mercury sloop in the service of the East India Company, came to the lndia- house, with an account of the above vessel be- ing arrved at Falmouth, from Bengal. She came from thence with an express last April, and brings an account that the Nottingham, Capt. How, from Bengal, and the Anson, Capt. Lennox, from Bom- bay, were both arrived at St. Helena, and were to sail from thence for England in two or three days after her ; so that they are hourly expected. The Grenville packet- boat, Capt. Liddel, is sail- ed from Falmouth for the West Indies. EDINBURGH. We hear that the remains of his late Royal Highness the Duke of York will be interred with the same solemnities as were observed at the burial of his brother Prince Fredrick William, who died December 15. Monaco, the place where His Royal Highness j died, is the capital of a principality of the same name, in the territories of Genoa in Upper Italy ; it is a small but fortified city, and has a good harbour, it belongs to its own Prince, who is a descendant from Marshal Matignon by the Heiress of Grimaldi, and a subject of France. It is thought that his Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester will be appointed keeper of Windsor Lodge and Park, in the room of his late Royal Highness the Duke of York. On Sunday morning last, the Lady of the Right Honourable Lord Mount- Stewart, eldest son of the Earl of Bute, was safely delivered of a son and heir at London, to the great joy ot that no- ble family. . On Thursday the 25th ult. the Circuit Court of Justiciary was opened at Inverness by the Lords Auchinleck and Coalston, when John M'Diarmid tenant in BOulough, in the braes of Lochabe , and shire ot Inverness, for theft of black cattle, was de- clared fugitive for not appearing ; and on Monday thereafter came on the trial of Archibald M'Do- nald in Pilmaglaster of Glengary, also for the theft of cattle The jury returned their verdict in the evening, all in one voice, finding the indict- ment not proven, where upon he was assoilzied and dismissed from the bar. There being no o- ther business at that place, the Court rose on Wednesday, which finishes the northern Circuit. On Monday last, the wife of a journey- man shoe- maker in Glasgow, offering lump sugar to sale at sixpence per pound, was taken into custody, and being challenged how she came by the sugars, she | acknowledged she got the same from Nanny Brody, servant in one of the sugar houses there, to dif- pose of, who was immediately carried before one of the Magistrates, when she confessed, that in the absence of her master, she broke into the sugar chamber, and stole therefrom a considerable quan- tity of lump and raw sugars, which she gave to the said shoe- maker's wife to sell. They were both immediately committed to prison. On Wednesday last, the Right Hon. Lord A- dam Gordon, and his Lady her Grace the Du- chess of Athol, arrived at his Lordship's house at Prestonhall, from Hertfordshire. On Thursday last, came on at the palace of Holyroodhouse, the election of two Peers for Par- liament, in the room of the Earls of Moray and Hyndford, deceased : when his Grace the Duke of Gordon and the Right Honourable the Earl of Strathmore were unanimously elected. On this occasion many of the nobility were present, and made a grand appearance ; among whom were the Dukes of Athol, Gordon, and Buccleugh. There were also a good many proxies. After the business of the election, there was an entertainment suitable to so noble a company, and in the even- ing a brilliant assembly. By a letter from a Gentleman in Pembrokeshire we are informed, that the harvest in that country is almost housed, and that a finer crop was never known, particularly the barley towards St Da- vids. At Landess Fair, in Cardiganshire, last week, Cattle sunk in price at least one third of what they sold for some months ago. Bullocks, which would have brought 12I. in the spring, were sold for 81. By letters from Ireland we hear, that the em- bargo on grain and meal was to be taken off on the 19th ult. and that several vessels laden with oat- meal were ready to sail from thence, and are expected at Greenock in a few days. The prices of grain begin to fall gradually in this country ; and from Kelso we are informed, that laft week, oats and barley fell some shillings per boll. On Wednesday laft, the best new oat meal was sold at Musslelburgh at 1 s per peck, which is a penny cheaper that it was the preceeding market day. Arrived at Clyde,, the Buchanan, Cochrane, from Philadelphia with flour; the Nancy, M'Clish, from Granades with rum ; the Nugent, Hamil- ton, from Belfast with meal ; the Nelly, Cuthbert, from Virginia with tobacco, and the Menle, Sin- clair, from Bristol with goods. Arrived at Leith, the Betty of kinghorn, Kirk- caldy, from Aberdeen with tyles. Sailed the Samuel and Lady, Bonting, for Sun- derland with ballast ; the George and Phillis of Fenham, Hogg, for Berwick with ditto; the Men- zies Adventure of Kirkcaldy, Wigham, for Alloa with ditto ; and the Elizabeth of Leith, Ross, for Newcastle with ditto.

Number I. o F T H E CHRISTIAN in Compleat Armour: O R, A TREATISE of the Saints War against the DEVIL. WHEREIN A Discovery is made of that grand Enemy of GOD and his People, in his Policies, Power, Seat of his Empire, Wickedness, and chief design he hath against the Saints. Being a MAGAZINE opened, from whence the Chriftian is furnished with Spiritual Arms for the Battle, helped on with his Armour, and taught the use of his Weapons, together with the happy Issue of the whole War. By WILLIAM GURNAL M. A. of Emanuel College, sometime Pastor of the Church of Christ, at Lavenham in Suffolk, CONDITIONS I. That this WORK will be neatly printed in One Volume Folio, on a good paper, and new large type, made by Dr Wilson for that pur- pose, the same size with the best London Editi- on. The whole to consist of about one hun- dred and eighty sheet. II. That this Work may be easy to the purchaser, it was determined, that every Subscriber shall have twenty five sheets, once every six weeks, stitched in blue paper, till the whole is finished, for one shilling only; and what exceeds seven numbers, shall be given gratis. III. Every subscriber for 12 copies, shall have one gratis. IV. A List of the encouragers of this undertaking will be printed, unless forbid. V. if Number 1. which is now published, gives not entire satisfaction to the encouragers of this Work, agreeable to the proposals, it will be re- ceived back, within the space of one month af- ter the date hereof, if kept clean. N. B. As few or none will then be printed off, but what are subscribed for, the publisher there- fore earnestly entreats all those who desire to encourage this Work, that they would send in their names before the middle of October, so that he may then be determined on the number afterwards to be printed off. Subscriptions are taken in by John Bryce, Prin- ter and publisher, at his fhop in the Salt market, or his Printing office in the Bridge gate, where number first will be given out to all' bookseller's and others, who. either are, or may yet become en- couragers of this Work.- To the PUBLIC. IT has some times been objected, as a discourage- ment to subscribing. that some books printed by subscription, have afterwards been sold cheaper to thofe who did not encourage the undertaking, than to the real subscribers ; but, as this excellent book is now offered to the Public on so easy terms, there can be no just ground for such an objection in the present case, as this edition is offered at lefs than the half the price of any formerly publishedj and to render entire satisfaCtion. it is proposed to be printed on a large beautiful type equal to the best London Edition. It is hoped, that Subscri- bers for books of this kind have some thing higher in view, than merely procuring a cheap book to themselves, even the republishing of such valuable productions as may be ( by the blessing of God) of great benefit, both to the present and succeeding generations, which would otherwise remain un- known if not properly encouraged : Besides, if ' here were not a competent number subscribed for, fo as to produce a quick sale at once, the book could not be had at so easy a rate. Amongst the many and justly esteemed treatises of practical divinity, which the by past century has produced, and especially of thofe which are now out of print, there are very few or none which have ajuller claim to the regard of the Pu- blic in general, and to all serious and well dispos- ed Christians in particular, than THE CHRISTIAN' IN COMPLETE ARMOUR., written by that faith ful Servant of our Lord, and excellent Divine, the Reverend and Learned Mr William Gurnal, M. A. — In this truly devout performance, the real Christian is furnished with the necessary weapons for that spiritual warfare, in which he must needs engage, with his three grand Adversaries, the DEVIL, the WORLD, and the FLESH. And he is not only furnished with the necessary Armour, but at the same time, be is taught the only true method of using it with such advantage and success against these his three most formidable adversaries, that at last, by the mighty Grace of his God, vouch safeing him resolution and perseverance in the combat, he comes off Conqueror,- and more than Conqueror. It would be altogether superfluous to give any farther encomium of this excellent work, to such as have read it ; and these who have not, will be far better satisfied on perusal, than by any thing, that can be here said in its commendation by publishers.. However, it must be universally allowed, that one thing is most certainly true, which is, that republications of practical perfor- mances of this nature, are surely most useful, and at the same time most necessary to every one who professes to have inlisted himself a soldier under the Banner of the blessed JESUS, the Captain of our Salvation. Upon the whole, as it is only the true Christian, who wreftles not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against: powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, a- gainst spiritual wickedness in high places, so it is only the faithful soldier of Jesus who can say, when the time of his departure is at hand,.—— I have fought a Good Fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the Faith. Wherefore take unto you the whole ARMOUR OF GOD.
