Numbers are already arrived there, and othets are in. full March. Rufiia appears 10 be the Qbjett of thefe Preparations. But be it as it will, it fcems that t h e Confederates of Poland have all along depended upon fome Enterprise from the Porte.

According to Letters from Corfica, by the AVay of Paris, Paoli has written a Letter to t h e Count de Marbeuf, wherein he fays, " That his Nation did not think that the ' K i n g could have any Subject of Complaint againft them ; that it was not cullomary to carry War into a Country without fitll publ i l h i ng a Manifedo; and that, morepver, if $ hey had given him Time to inform his Nation of his Majelly's Intentions with refpeft to t h e Communication they wanted co'eftabljlh, the" Affair of St. Fiorenzo and of the Redbubts Would not have happened."

Monday lad a Lady of Fortune at the Weft End of the Town, had her favourite Lap- dog, named Diamond, interred with grand funeral Pomp; his Coffin was covered with black Cloth, ornamented with white Nails, Handles, and a Plate upon the Coffin, on which was engraved his Age and Pedigree : Her Servants that attended the Burial had white Gloves and Favours given them upon the unhappy Occafion.

S i R, IF an Officer, who has rendered fuch effenti& l Services to his Country as Sir Jeffery Amherft has done, is to be treated ill by a Mi mfter with Impunity, I muft confefs, I thiule, our boafted Liberty is at an E n d ; for who, in the Name of Common- Senfe, will venture his Life, and expofe himfelf to every Hardfhip that can be conceived, if, after all his T o i l s, he is to be ftripped of the Emoluments Bellowed'on him by a graciow Sovereign, as a Reward for his fahhful Servicej, merely to make Way for the Sycophant of a Miniller, whofe . Fortune has been Squandered by Folly and Extravagance I It is pleafant enough to obfervetheShifts the Friends of otrr worthy Adminiftration are , put to, in order to fave the? r Characters upon this Oceafion ; on the one Hand they pofitively give out that Faction has got hold of Sir jeffery Amherft, and diat it is entirely owing to Party that he refigned his military Appointments ; while others of their Emiffaries are employed in Whifpering about in Coffee- Hbufes, that, in Fafl, no Affront was intended to Sir Jeffery ; that he'himfelf is f a t from countenancing the- general Cryagainft theMin i f t r y ; that although he was hurt at the precipitate Appointment of Lord Bottetourt, which obliged him to demand a Reparation, he difclaims arty Kind ftf Attachment to Party. From the general C h W f t e r of this worthy Man, I can eafity believe that his private Wrongs will never urge him to dillurb the ' Meafures of the Ring's Servants. While t^ is fcondudlof his raifes the Admiration of Mankind, it ought to be the Bufinefti of By- ftanders to give the Alarm, i n order to deter bafe an d d e g e n e r a t e Minillers from purfuing Meafures which, in the End, muft deprive this Country of its moft valuable Defenders. Look back, my Countrymen, to the- Annals of the late War ; read over with Attention the Achievements of the Man, who has now rqtired without a Shilling from that Nation to . which he has added an Extent o f Cduntry infinitely beyond what the moll fanguine Politician ever dreamed of 1 And how Indignantly muft the honeft Briton feel when he is told, that this Retirement has taken Place from a public Affront offered to the deferring Officer by a worthlefs, trifling Minifter, whofe only Merit has confifted in ihuffling from one Department to another, always taking Care to. have, when out of Place, a Penfion adequate to his former Appointments. On this Principle, the Miniilry reckoned that Sir Jeffery Amherft would have conteotcdly accepted of a Penfion, which they call an Equivalent to the honorary Appointment he had enjoyed for his paft Services : But their Ideas were as different from his? in this Refpefl, as their Notions of Honour, H? neily, and Integrity, are from thofe of his virtuous Bread 1 He felt like h i m f e l f ; he afted like himfelf; and has ftiovvn to the World, that the Man who could fo fteadily purfue Plans in Conquering the Enemies of his Country, was not t o be overcome hy the Chicanery of a Minifter, who never poffeffed one Spark of Honefty, but, j u d g i n g from his own Feelings, concluded that his Bufinefs was done on propofing the Penfion. T h e polite Letter of Lord H — h', a Copy of which has been expofed to V i ew at all the public Places in T o w n , fays a great D e a l: It propofes an Impoftibility ; but his Lordlhip trulls tb the deep Penetration of his worthy Friends to find out the Meaning : Perhaps, lilje Gay in the Farce, he wilhed to leave fomething to their Sagacity, " My Letter has a Meaning, and no Dcuht, " Ton all have Senfe enough io find it out." It certainly contained many pretty Periods ; It runs Iffongly in my Mind that his Namby . Pamby Friend of the Horfe Guards had the Correcting of i t ; and I am the more ( l e n g t h - ened in this Opinion, from the many Repetitions of Gracioufy pleafed, faithful Services, & c. of which his Lordlhip is fo very fond ; for to fuch a Degree is this fycophantical Nonfenfe carried, that if an Officer ( we wiil fuppofe a Captain of a Company) after eight Years Service, receives from Twelve Pounds Ten Shillings t o - O n e Hundred Pounds in Lieu, of Two Hundred and Forty Pounds, which he was juftly entitled to, he is to bs re minded of Obligations to the bell of S for the vail Indulgence ; ar. d the R— 1 Name proftituted on every Occafion, by an infignificant A — 1 in Office, who bears the T i t l e of L ) but who in Faft deferves the Contempt which all good Men, who ever heard of his Bshaviour, jullly hold him" in.

T h i s was a very modeft Refufal ; for it fltewed no DiffatisfaCtion to the King's Perfon, nor Disinclination to oblige him, but contained liis. Reafon for refufing it, namely, becaufe it' was forbidden by the Laws of the Land, which were given to the Jews by God himfelf. And this Law in particular, to prevent the Alienation of Property, was moll politically contrived for the Happinefs of that • People, arid for a Barrier againft the ufurious Accumulation of the Jews— a Vice to whitti they were peculiarly addicted. No one who had flood by, and had heard this fubmiflive and religious Anfwer of Naboth, wherein he rather c h o t to flight his own Intereft than the Commands of God, and preferred the Difpleafure of his Prince to his own Emolument, if it was to be purchafed by an Innovation pernicious to his Fellow- Citizens; no one, I fay, coqld. reafoqably have imag i n e d ' t h a t fuch a Man would. be accufed of clafpbeming bis God, and. of libelling lis King. ; Nor indeed did Ahab himfelf meditate any ' fuch Accufation.

" He came into his Houfe heavy and difpleafed, becaufe of the Word which Nab « th Ipake unto him." 1 T h i s Prince feems to have been an eafy 5 ood- natured Man, no great Politician ineed, bat not guilty himfelf t? f any Oppref- < ion of the Subject, nor of . any other Fault, except in this his improper and too eager Defire of Naboth's Vineyard, and in fuffering pthers to abufe his Authority for theD « ftruct i o n o f t h e Innoeent, whom God had appointed h im to defend. Unfortunately there was not wanting a Jei a b e l at his Elbow to encourage him in this his chitdifh Inclination, and to point out to h im the Means of wreaking his Revenge on a Wretch who had dared to tell the T r u t h to his Sovereign, and to oppofe his Will— when his Will oppofed the L# w. He pleads the Laws. The Lord, and the Laws forbid Naboth to give Ahab his Vineyard !— Thofe very Laws fhall be made the Inilrument of wrefting the Vineyard they were defigned to preferve, and of punifhing him who prefumed to rely tipon them ; and that Holy Name to which he has appealed, fhall be made ufe of as the chief Ground of h i s Accufatioa. • V. 7.

' But this Objeftion does not weigh at alt with me, becaufe the Accufation itlelf being foanded in notorious Falfehood and Malice, it i'sButreafonaljle t o f u p p o f e that the Profecution would be conducted with open Rancour a n d l n j n f t i c e .

Management of Hemp and Flax, lately publilhed*, contains the following Obfervations on the Horfe Cheftnut, which may be acceptable and ufeful, we think, to our Readers, who are converfant in Agriculture. " The Horfe- Cheftnut has hitherto been cultivated only for its Shade, Beauty in Spring, and fpeedy Growth. In Turkey, the Nuts are" given- to Horfes afflifted with Shortnefs of Breath; and hence the Tree has it, s Name. Late Experience has taught us, that the Nuts are very efficacious in whitening Hemp, Flax, *> r Cloth, and the Tree is on this A c c e n t/ more worthy of Cultivation. A Soil that is rather moift than dry, agrees beft with it, and it is - tftily propagated by the Wuts. Cattle and Sheejj are fond of the Leaves of the Horfe- Cheftnut, and they ai; e found to be good Nourithment for theiji. If boiling Water be poured upon the Nuts, to take off their Bitternefs, they become excellent Food for fattening Hogs and Fowls. They may alfo be made into Starch. " When the Nuts are ufed for whitening Hemp or Flax before they are fcutched, or Thread before it is wove, they fhould be r a t t e d into Waiter, in which the Rafpingsare to remain for twelve: Hours, i l i r r i ng the Liquor frequently, it is* then to fettle for a Quarter of an Hour, when the white Liquor, felembling a Solution of Soap, and frothing like it, is poured off. If the Nuts a r e to be made Ufe of in a large Quantity, they muft be broken into a Pafte, or dried, 6r ground in a Mill. Either Way they readily diffolve ii » Water, and communicate to' it their faponaceous Quality. Twenty middling Chellnuts are fufficient f o r fix Quarts of Water, which, when ufed, muft be made fo warm that the Hand can fcarcely bear it. What fettles at the Bottom is very good for Fowls, being mixed with Bran. " This Liquor is alfo of fingular Advantage in the firft Scouring • o f . S i l k , for it will not only brighten its Colour, but it will fit it the better to receive any other Colour. If the Cocoons were piit into this Liquor, when the Silk is reeled off, we fhould have much lefs of it yellow." • ' ^ * hi the Repojitory. for feleli Pieces in Agriculture, 13 c.

Square, JOHN GLYNN. Saturday, Aug. 2 7. ^ ^ , P O S T S C R I P T . L O N D O N . The following Copy cf a Letter, dated Corftca, Aug. 5, is banded about, as containing a truer Account of • what paffed there tnthe ljl of that Month, than any other Letter hitherto publijhed. " In the laft Week of July, about ten or eleven Days before the Expiration of the T r u c e , the French polled a Body of Hotfe in Baftia, on the weftern Side of the Ifle, where they had about 8000 Foot. At San Fiorenzo, on the oppofite Shore, tbey had 2500 Foot, French and Swifi, with other Corps at Calvi and Bonifacio, apd about 2000 French and Germans at Ajaccio. " As foon as their Horfe had enteredBaftia, the French made a Sally from Calvi, with the View of drawing the C o r f i c a n s t o that Side, who were polled in the Paffes between Baftia and San Fiorenzo ; but after a flight Skirmifh they retired again to Calvi. " Three or four Days before the 31ft of July, the Corficans detained, in San Fiorenzo, fome Cattle that wete going to the French Camp, but on a Meffage from the Commanda n t , releafed them directly, reprefenting, however, ' that the French ought no: to have drawn any Cattle from thence, without the Knowledge of the Governor of the Diftrifts through which they were to pafs; and that the Coflicans were not ebliged to fuffer any T h i n g to pals to the French, excepting what was juft neceffary, ' till the Expiration of the T r u t e , and not Maintenance for a large Ar- T o the Gentlemen, Clergy, and Freeholders, of the County, of Middiefex. Gentlemen, I Did not prefume to offer myfelf again as a Candidate for the County until I knew it would be agreeable to a great Number"' of its (.'. onjiituents ; happy am I to find that I have fo'great Encouragemeat. It is not a Seat in Parliament that I covet jo much as tbe Honour of reprefenting fo reppeSiablea Gountf, which I have had the peculiar Pleafure to do in three fuccejpye Parliaments, in which I was ever ajjiduous of foewing my Duty to the King, and preferving the Rights anil Liberties ef my Fellow- Subjects ; this emboldens me again to follicit your Votes and. Inter efi on the Day of EleBion, affur'tng you that I never had the leaf Thought of petitioning | againji any former Election, which has been unkindly reported ; and if 1 have the Honour to be chofe your Reprefentative, Jhall endeavour lo merit tbe Favoui> by the Uprightnefs of my Anions, and by a confiant Attrition to the Trade and Welfare of tb ' u County. I am, Gentlemen, Your mojl obliged and faithfull Servant, W. BEAUCHAMP PROCTOR. Bruton Street, July 19, 1768. ( 3* I Jhall pay \ my perfonal Re/ pells the firfi Opportunity, and in my Canvas if I JhouU omit waiting on any Freeholders, hope they will not attribute ti to Neglett, but to the Want of a eorrett Lift., my, as they feemed preparing, which might occafion a Want of Provifions to the Corftcans.' " About a' Mile and a Half from the French Camp, in a Diftrift poiTeffed by the Corficans, is a Plaee which furniflied good W a t e r ; the Corlicans there kept a Guard, and both Sides provided themfelves from thence with Water. The French, under Pretenfe of what had paffed in regard to the Cattle, furprifed, on the 28th, the Corfican G u a r d , drove them away, and placed there a G u a r d of their own. In Spite of the Reprefentati'ons made by the Corfican Commander, the French fortifyed themfelves in that Place, and would not fuffer the Corficans to come there for Water. The latter, refentingthis A f t of Hoftility, furprifed, in their T u r n , oil the 30th at N i g h t, the French Troops, forced them to retire, and took about 200 Mufquets. • On the 3 til the French hung out their Flag in the Caftle of San Fiorenzo. A Body of about 1000 Foot, divided into feveral Detachments, marched out- of their Camp, and fell upon the Corficans, who guarded the " Fount a i n : T h e latter after a Fight of two Hours, retreated to the Upper Grounds, from whence they made, a brifk Fire on the French. Thefe feparated t h i n into two or three Parties, in order to attack the Eminence ; but the Corficans, though greatly inferior in Number, as not making in all above 200 tegular Troops and 300 Peafants, defended themfelves with fo much Bravery, that the French were obliged t o abandon the upper Grounds, about twenty alone excepted who flayed there, but who being difcovered the next Morning, were alfo driven from thence. Few Corficans fell in this Aftion. Covered by the Rocks orBufhei they fired fitting on the Ground, and lay all along while their Mufquets were charging by the Affiftance of the Women, who exhorted them not to fear Death. The French, on . the contrary, loft a great Number of People, moft of whom were left dead on the Spot, very few being ca ried to the Hofpiral, and only two of their Officers buried. The French Commandant forbid, the fame Evening, on Pain of D e a t h , all Mention o f what had pafR- d in that Day' s Ailion. The French, however, have iince confeffed the Loft of five Officers, and at leaft 300 Soldiers, killed, wounded and Prifoners, " The French in Baftia hearing the Reporfc of tfce Aftion near San Fiorenzo, and perceiving tha, t the Corps of Obfervation formed by the Corficanis vvas removed, made a'Sally with their Cavalry, which they potted between Baftia and the Mountains that feparate the Environs of that City from San Fiorenzo.
