The Confederates of Podolia have not yet laid Siege to Kaminieck as was reported, and the Commandant of that Fortrefs, fo far from furrendering, has armed the Burghers, and taken every prudent Means t o prevent being furprifed. It is faid that the Confederates have fent to Conftantinople, to folicit the Affillance of the Grand Signior. Be t t a l as it will, the Marlhal of the Confederacy has invited the other Palatinates to join liim ; and the Sieur Potovvlki, the General of the Confederate Army, has published a Declaration, which enjoins the whole Army of t h e Republick to acknowledge him for their Commander General. Thefe Proceedings greatly, embarrafs the Miniflry, who are ap- Jirehenfive of the Confequcnces ; as neither the national Troops, nor tlie Inhabitants of the Country, feem difpofed to fight againft their Countrymen who have raifed the Standard of Religion and Liberty. A few Days ago it was refolved in the Senate, to fend General Mokranowfki, and the Sieur Gudmofki, to tfeat with the Confederates, and hear the Subjeft of their Grievances ; and likewife to fend to the Court of Ruifia to folicit its Affiflance.

On Eafler- Day the Count de S , of a noble Family in the County of Avignon, as he was going to his Houfe at Areueil near Paris, met with a poor Beggar- Wonian by the Way, whom he took home with him, under a Pretence of taking her into his Service ; he locked her up in a Clofet, . bound her Hands and Legs, and gagged her t o prevent her crying o u t ; then he took a Penknife and made feveral lncifions in different Parts of her Body, and poured into them a Kind of Cement, refembling Spanifh W a x ; as foon as he had fo done, he tcok his Walk, leaving the unhappy Vidtim locked up ; fhe however found Means to dilengage herfelf, and jumped out of tbe Window, withopt receiving any more H u r t . The Inhabitants of the Village no fooner faw her, but they would have murdered ihe Count if he had not made his E - fcapc. It is fuppofed that the Count i. s disordered in his Mind, and his Family have received Orders to put him under Confinement. In the mean Time, they have fatisfied the poor Woman with a Sum of Money. Some People fay, that he is mad after Chemillry, p » d that the Aft of Cruelty ibove- mentioned was intended for an Experiment of a Balfam which he pre- jj tends will inftantly cure all Sorts of Wounds.

S I R, " \ J 7 H £ N a Man is down, down W with him to the Bottom," fay the wretched Politics of this World, and patticu- Irrly the. Politics of the Court- ends of the World. Such feems to be the humane Maxim of your Correfpor. dend M. in your C h r o i > le of April 23. To deprefs Mr. Wijfces as low is he can, he tells us, that " after an impartial Confideraticn of the beft Informations he hath been able to coiled!, Mr. Wilkes's Caufe always appeared a private perfona! Affair, and upon this Snppofition, he prefumes, were founded all the Proceedings againft him." Wonderful Politician! Were not the Affairs of Pry/ ine, Burton, Bajlwick, Lord Ruffel, Alger noon Sidney, Aldeiman Cortiijh, & c. private and pirfcnal Affairs in every Senfe wherein Mr. U ilkes's Affair can he fo called? Were not the Proceedings againft them equally founded upon this Suppofition? And yet, did not two patriotic Parliaments think the Public fo much concerned in thefe Proceedings, as to reverfe thc Judgments againlt them, and to give fome of them, or fome of their Families, SatisfaQion for their Sufferings, and to inquire after the Authors of thefe Profecutions, with s View of cenfuring them as Delinquents? But he would make a Difference in the Cafe of Mr. Wilkes, by obferving, that notwithftanding the Public was interelted in the De- . terminations in Mr. Wilkes's Cafe, yet this was purely accidental, and cannot connedt the Cattle of Mr. Wilkes with the Caufe of the Public: " Or if there is any Connexion, it is merely fortuitous." What can pofiibly be the Meaning of this ? If the Public were interefted in the Determination of the Queftions he mentions, nothing more certain than that the Caufe of Mr. Wilkes was connected with the Caufe of the Public. Impudence itfelf cannot deny i t ; and what is i t to thc Purpofe to fay, that the Connexion is fortuitous? For was it more fortuitous in the Cafe of Mr. Wilkes, than in the Cafes of the Sufferers above- mentioned? And to what does this quibbling Amount, but to this important Propofition? " If fuch and fuch T h i n g s had not happened, Mr. Wilkes's Caufc would not have been connedted with the Caufe of the Public ?" But he tells us, that « Though Mr. Wilkes fefolutely oppofed certain arbitrary Proceedings, he did no more than the arranteft Slave in the Kingdom would have done in the like Circumftances. " It was, fays he, his real Intereft to do i t ." I defire to know how Mr, M. comes to know fcither of thefe Things? Would he himfelf have ailed the Part Mr. Wilkes did? Suppofe him to anfwer, Yes, he cannot be a Judge what an arranter Slave than himfelf would have done. But if upon mature Examination of himfelf, he is confcious that lie would have a'fted a different f a r t in Mr. Wiikes's Circumftances, ( as I dare fay all who read his Effay will agree) he ennnot be admitted to judge of Mr. Wilkes's Motives. And I here call upon him to prove t h a t i t was Mr. Wilkes's I n t e n d ! to adt as he did, on the Peril of being Iwld a temerarious Afferter of what he was utterly ignorant. The Event at leaft has . fliown that Appearances are againft this plain, boncjl Englifhinan. Does he fuppofe Mr. Wilkes could not have compromifed his Matters at a lefs Expence than Banifhment from his native Country, ruining his Fortunes, and tndergoiffg other Effedts of Minifterial Malignity? If fo he thinks, I will venture to fay • here is not a Man of Common Senfc in the Kingdom of his Opinion. Beginning to find, and indeed in P a r t c o n - feffing the Futility of his own Argument, he fells upon Mr. Wilkes's private Character, and endeavours lo make himfelf Amends by turni n g Apparitor. But before we admit his Competency in this Department, we defire a f u l l and true Account of his own private Cha- » a£ ter : And we defire it upon his Own Print t p l e s . *' A bad Man can never make a gocd C i t i z e n , " is his own wjfe Axiom. That he pretends to be a good Citizen, appears from i i s calling himfelf a plain, boitefl Englijhman, * s likewife from his Attempt, in this patriotic Letter, to fet the Public right in their Notions * f Mr. Wilkes. Let him then immediately produce his Evidence that h e is not a bad Man, e r elfe immediately quit the Field, and ho- • c f t ly confefs that, with refpedt to private Chartdler, Mr. Wilkes is upon as good a f o o t i n g as himfelf. " His Country, fays he, does hot require k im to fuft'er Martyrdom in its Caufe, There is no Neceffity for i t . " The Quefticn here is what we are to underftand by Mr. Wilkes's Country? If we are to take his Country, to Clean thofe whofe Liberties were like to fufrer by the Attempts On Mr. Wilkes, they certainly do not defire that he foould fuffer Martyrdom in their Caufe, as appears by certain Efforts they have made that he fhonld not fuffer Martyrdom at all. But if by M r . Wilkes's Country, Mr. M. means hirnfelf and Company, if they do not defire ihat he fhould 1 i n f e r Martyrdom to oblige them, how ccases i t that Mr. M. immediately propofes that M r . Wilkes Ihould go once more i n t o Exile ?— A jilain, honeft Englifh Soul, with a plain, honefl Irijh Undtrffaudin. g, and plain, hoceft Scotch Principles !

Whether I am miftaken or not in this Gonjefture, the W r i t e r is moll certainly an incorrigible Noodle. And yet, perhaps, the Party were not able to procure a better ; for, iu a Caufe fo notorioufly bad, they may have found it almoit as difficult to engage a Man of common Underjlandir. g to. undertake its Defence, as to get one of common Honefty to declare his Approbation of it. Some Glimmerings of Meaning however appear in this Extraft 3 and as thefe Glimmerings may chance to deceive and miflead fome Perfons, not perfeftly acquainted with the Affair, I will give you, Mr. Printer, the true State of the Cafe. There was a Conteft for Churchwardens on Tuefday in Eafter- Week, between the Friends of Mr. Bayly and the Friends of Mr. Morton. There vvas a Poll taken at the Veftry in the Church of St. Helen. At the Clofe of this Poll the Candidates fupported by Mr. Bayly's Friends h a d a Majority of 25 of the old indisputable Voters, and were, upon this Majority, declared to be duly elefted by Mr. Bedwell, one of the Churchwardens : And I am very fure, it is their Intention to execute the Office they have been fairly and legally appointed to ferve. Mr. Morton's Party polled the Perfons they had a little before put upon the Poor Rates, made ( one of them after the Diffolution of Parliament) for the necejfary Purpofe of carrying the late Election of a Member. By this illegal and/ hameful Meafure they made out a Majority of Thirteen for their Candidates. Upon which the other Churchwarden, the famous WILL. E— GE, had the Impudence to declare them to be duly elefted. In vain was it objected that the Perfons thus polled, being upon no Church Rate, could not have even the Shadow of a R i g h t to vote for Churchwardens. T h e Party, with their ufual Arbitrarinefs and Effrontery,, infilled upon it, that thefe Perfons were upon a Church Rate made the Week be- f fore. This Rate was repeatedly called for, and the Sight of it repeatedly and abfolutely refufed. That they really had any fuch Rate to produce is very queftionable. But if they had any Paper or Writing, which they were pleafed to call by that Name, it was made by one of the Churchwardens only, and, his J u n - to, in private ; and contrary, not only to the Senfe of the other Churchwarden, but alfo to an Order of a great Majority of the Parifh made at the Veftry the Week before; and copfequently could be no Rate, in any legal or equitable Conftruftion. Yet, by thefe pretended Voters, upon this pretended Rate, the Party obtained the Viftory which tl* ey fo arrogantly and ftupidly boaft o f ; there being in Faft a real Majority cf 25 rightful Votes againft them. This is the plain T r u t h of the Cafe : Let the Letter- Writer, or any of his Friends deny it if they can. Some other Infinuations there are, in this Scrap of a Letter, too abfurd to have the leaft Influence on any who are not the moft weak and fenfelefs of all Bigots, viz. " The Intereft of the Iii, Tenters has met with another D e f e a t ." —" Fortunately for the Caufe of Religion, the Oppofers of the Church have loft their E l e f t i o n . " Now I Ihould think that Religion, the Church, and the Diffenters, are lugged in upon this Occafion rather unfortunately. I fhould not, however, have repeated, nor taken the leaft Notice of f u c h N o n - fenfe, had it been the Language of this Fool only : But it always has been, and is now, the common Cant of thofe of Mr. Morton's Party who have afted with any remarkable Zeal in his Service. Every Churchman, furely, vvhq has that Value which he ought to have for his Church, muft think himfelf affronted by any Infinuations that its Intereft could pofiibly be ferved by fuch Meafures as have been taken to fectire Mr. Morton's Eleftion, or the Eleftion of his Friends who were fet up for Churchwardens. And as for the Diffenters, they will be ready to think tfaey have an involuntary Compliment paid them, whenever they are reprefented as fome of the moil ttrenuous Oppofers of fuch Meafures. Merely, as Dift'enters, indeed, they imagine themfelves perfeftly uninterefled in any, of the late Difputes here. In their Opinion, M r . Bayly is full as good a Churchman as Mr, M o r t o n ; and the Churchwardens they voted for altogether as good Churchmen as their Opponents prefume they have chofen. Hearty as moft of the Diffenters were for Mr. Bayly, he aftually had a Majority without their Votes. For, upon the old and indifputable Rates, he had a Majority of 38 ; and the whole Number of Diffenters who voted was no more than 3 ; , of which three voted for Mr. Morton. In the Choice of Churchwardens, the Motives the Diffenters were influenced by were fuch, and only fuch, as every honeft, at Icaft every unprejudiced Churchman could not but feel the Force of, viz. their Abhorrence of. the late infamous Rates, and their earneft Defire to prevent the making any fuch Rates upon any future Occafion. , 1 am, Sir, your's, & c, Abingdon, April 21, 1768.

I Received, with the greateft Pleafure, the News of your Eledtion. I happened to be with the Prriident — — — , when your Letter was delivered to me; It was immediately read; and the whole Company, which was very numerous, was overjoyed at your Succefs. Your focial Virtues will, at all Times, and in all Places, render y. our Memory dear and precicious to your Friends ; and the Juftice which has been done you in fo public and diftinguiihed a Manner, indemnifies you fufnciently for the Hardfhips of your Exile, How pleafing it is to reign in the Hearts of Men ! You reign in thofe of your Fellow- Citizens : You deferve to reign in them : . You have fupported their Rights; and getiuine Sor. s of Freedom, as thVy are, they have crowned with Applaufe the Champion of their Liberties. The uncommon Unanimity with which the Eledtors voted in your Favour is anincoutcft. ible Proof of their Impartiality. The Bjribery, Corruption, and underhand Arts, which are fo frequent in almoft all Eledtions, hud no Place in yours : The Love of Liberty fired every Brcaft, and procured > ou the Suffrage of the independent Eleftors. And 1 doubt not but you might have been chofen for London itfclf, where the different Interefls arifing f r om Trade fet fo many fecret Springs in Motion, had the Eledtors been as free in Guild- Juli as they are interefted in their Commerce : But Intereft, you know, governs the World. Your quiet and peaceablc Demeanor docs you infinite Honour ; and your generous and patriotic Principles will render your Name immortal. You quitted Paris, that agreeable Retreat, wherfeyour amiable andgentleman- Iike Behaviour hath gained you fo many Friends; , and notwithstanding all the Amufements which we endeavoured to procure for you, in order to render your Stay the more agreeable, you overlooked all Dangers, and flew to fupport the Rights of your- Country. Coriolanus meditated the Ruin of his; and under Pretext offecuring her Liberties, propofed ( he fhould receive the galling Yok- e of Slavery, after having demoliflicd her Walls. A& uated by a Motive infinitely more noble, you go to yours in the Chara'ter of a Peace- maker; and, as a Reward of all that you have fuffered for her Sake, you alk nothing but the Power of being further ferviceable to her. In the fame Inftant London opens to you her Gates, and the Citizens their Hearts ; but the greater Part of the Eledtors, reftrainedor intimidated by the powerful Influence of the other Candidates, durfl not venture to give yo-< their Votes. The independent and famous County of Mtddlefex, however, has indemnified you for the fscret Machinations of the one, and the bale Pufillanimity of the other. Europe will be furprifed at your Patriotifm and your Succefs ; or rather Eufope will admire the one, and rejoice at the othej. I am the firft to felicitate you on the Occafion, and to join my Congratulations to thofe of all the Friends of the Human Race, which was certainly never intended to wear Fetters. The auguft Senate of Great Britain will ftill count a Wilkes ambng its moft illuftrious Members ; and the Liberty of your Country will Hill find in you a gerierousDefenderofi'ts Right! and Privileges. 1 have the Honour to be, with the great til Sincerity, { Pol. Reg.] D- T. T o the Printer of the S. J. CHRONICLE. S I R , A MONG the various Difcoveries made of late, not the leaft wonderful, is that of G. T . in your laft Chronicle. He is very angry with Mr. If ri Ikes, for having afferted be- . fore t h e ' C o a r l of King' s Bench, that no one In fiance of Falfehood . has yet been pointed out in that pretended Libel, fpeaking of the North Briton, No. 45. and fays, he willtake the Liberty of pji-. ting out one [ Falfehood] which he thinks ALL Mankind mufl acknowledge. The Paffage he quotes is, No Advantage of any Kind accrued to the King ofPruffiafrom our Negotiation. with France. Now, Sir, I agree entirely with Mr. IVilkes, and I will State my Reafons to you, why I cannot think ANY Part of Mankind will acknowledge the Falfehood of that Affertion in No. 45, becaufe it happens to be exaftly true. Before I confider G. T.' s, Reafons, I will premife that this Difcovery is quite new. It efcaped the Sagacity of our prcfent great Financier, Lord , who could not find one Word falfe in that whole Paper, although, he was challenged to it in exprefs Words, by Mr. Wilkes in the Houfe of Commons, when his Lordlliip alnioft choaked. himfelf, as well as llunned his Audience on the firft Day of the Seflion, in 1763. I was prefent, I faw him foam at the Mouth, and heard him guggle in the Throat, that I thought he would have been ftrangled, but after all his Efforts, not a Word could he get out about the Proof of any Falfehood in any Part of that Paper, although his Lordfhip moved that it was a f a l f e , J'canda'ous, feditious Libel, & c. If there was any Falfehood in it, do not you fuppofe, Sir, the Word Falfe, formerly thought fo neceffary to make any Thing a Libel, would have found its Place in an Information again!! Mr. IVilkes, to be tried before Lord - — ? Do you not believe, Sir, that if the Shadow of a Proof only could have been had but the Night before the Trial camc vn, his Lordfhip would as readily have confentc- d to add the Word Falfe to the Record, as he compelled the Alteration of the Word Purport for that of Tenor ? I fancy no more Difficulty would have been experienced in the one Cafe, than was' in the other. Now, Sir, I follow G. T . He adds, " All the World knows, that our King by that Negotiation took the whole French Army off the King of Pruftia's Hands.. Is it no Advantage to be rid of 50 or 00000 Enemies ?. T h e Man muft be void either of Senfe or Shame, who will deny it to be one." Taking an Army off a Man's Hands, is a llrange Expreffion, but i f this Writer muft have his own Phrafe, the French Army was taken off the King of Prujfia's Hands, fo as no longer to be dreaded, a good while before this, Repeated Victories of their Enemies had ruined their beft Troops, and they were evacuating Germany as fall as they could. I defire G. T . to recolledV how very few Acres and Villages in the whole Empire, wefe at that Period in the Poffeflion of the French Army, which then certainly amounted to little more than 30000 Men. They were lio longer in a Capacity of adtlrig on the Offenfive, and began adtually to retreat with the utmoft Expedition, before the laft Negotiation with France. The King of Pruffia was every where vidtoriousx His Valour and Condudt, with a Variety of lucky Events, had entirely re- eftablifhed his Affairs, and put him in fo fortunate a Condition, that he di&' ated himfelf the Terms of the Peace he. made. It is fo far from being true that any Advantage accrued to the King cf Pruffia from our Ncgociation with France, that it was a t'eal I) iJ'advantage to him, for the French knew the Negotiation of the Peace was in the Hands of Lord Bute, and that fo far from fupporting our great Proteftant Ally, his Lfcrdfhip was determined to abandon him. The King of Pruffia complained, that he was achially betrayed by the Scottifh Minifter, and he fpoke publ'ckly of the Offers made by his Lordlhip before this to the late Czar, for difmembring his Dominions. I heard Lord B — declare in a great Affembly, that the Dominions cf the ' King of Prufjia • we're to be fcramlled for ; the moft indeccnt, vulgar, and infamous Expreffion for an Ally Of the Crown of England, which any Minifter ever uttered. It may be added, Sir, to all thefe Facts, that the Paffage G , T . ventures to call a Falfehood, is not even objedled to in the Information filed in the King's Bench. Would no Notice have been taken of it, were it fuch a Falfehood as all Mankind mufl acknowledge ? I fufpedt G . T . to be one of the many Scribblers in the Papers, who'are paid by Lord Bute, fer he quotes Falfe to avoid a Compliment to the King cf PfCffita." In No. 45 it is, no Advantage of aiiy'Kind has accrued to that MAGN A N I M O U S P R I N C E , & C.' Now, Sir, I . will afk you, if G. T . has either Senfe or Shame? If he will try his Hand at any other Paffage in No. 4 ; , I promife him the fame Succefs, as I believe you find hs has had on the prefent Occafion. I am, Sir, your's, & c. Monday, May 2. A.

The Gentlemen of the County, who are of any Confequence, are in general Curwen's and Fletcher's Friends, and are determined to bring the Affair before a great Afiembly." It is confidently faid, that a certain Noble Lord has received a great Number of Letters, addrefl'ed to him in a moft daring and alarming Nature. If Mr. Wilkes ( hould continue in Confinement till the Meeting of Parliament, and confequently not be able to attend theBufinefs cf it, it is faid that the Freeholders of Middlefex intend to petition the Houfe of Commons that their Member may be fet at Liberty, to take Care of their Concerns, and do his Duty in the Houfe.

A Misfortune of a very affedHng Nature lately happened in a Family of Diltindtion : The Lady having employed an eminent Lim - ner to draw the Pidtures of her Children, the youngeft, an Infant at the Breaft, was entrufted feveral Times at his Hotife, folely under the Care of her Nurfe, who was very handfome, and the Wife of an honeft Man, a Servant in another Family. Some Time after, the young Woman proving with Child, and not having cohabited with her Hulband fince fhe had lain in and been in Service, was totally abandoned by him. She has been ftnee delivered; and overwhelmed with Shame and Sorrow, is fince dead of a broken Heart, folemnly declaring on her Death bed, that the Limner had, during thefe Opportunities, feduced her to this wicked Adt. The unhappy Creature being dead, it is now a Queftion, whether the poqr Man can, for want of Proof, bring the cruel Seducer and Author of this fatal Cataftrophs to juftice, or obtain the lealt Compenfation for the Injury done him.
