Berrow's Worcester Journal THURSDAY, March 8, 1770. No, 3162. This Journal is published early in the Morning, and circulated in a very expeditious Manner; and will always contain, besides the most material News published in the London Papers on Tuesday Night, many interesting Articles of Intelligence, not to be found in other Country Papers till the Saturday or Monday following. SATURDAY'S POST. Arrived two Mails From Holland. Warsaw, Feb. 3. FROM the Head Quarters of the Russian Army we hear that a considerable Body of the Confederates of Bar have voluntarily submitted them- selves Prisoners to Lieutenant Colonel Fabricius, and being received, in the most humble Terms expressed their Thanks to the Almighty, for having de- livered them from Slavery which they had suf- fered among the Turks. The Miseries and Hardships they had undergone, are inexpres- sible; and out of 900 of them which formerly joined the Turks, only 500 remained. Genoa, Jan. 27. Letters from Toulon ad vise, that the Men Of War and Frigates at that Port are getting ready to fail as soon as possible, in order to cruize in the Mediterranean. COUNTRY NEWS. Leeds, Feb. 27. Last Friday Sir Walter Vi- visour's Fox- Hounds unkenned a Fox in Hazel Wood, and, after several Hours Diversion, Reynard ran up a Sewer several hundred Yards in Length, which led him into the Wine- Vaults of Charles Allanson, of Bramham- Big gin, Esq; where, after taking a Bottle of Wine with the Butler, ( which he actually did, for he was obliged to break one over his Head before he would surrender) he was produced again to the Sportsmen, and, after a Race of several Hours, he fairly outstript them all. LONDON, Thursday, March 1. We are informed that Lord North is deter- mined to convince the Public how much he merits their Esteem, by taxing every Branch of Luxury, and removing the Imports from the Necessaries of Life.— A noble Resolution, and which will prove him to be the true Patriot. It is said to be now finally settled, that Sir F r N----- n is to have the Great Seal, on the Terms mentioned in our last, and that a lately- created Baronet will be Solicitor in his Room. A Matter of a very serious Nature is ex- pected soon to be taken into Consideration by a certain Assembly, in which, it is said, no less than forty principal Characters are involved. Yesterday came on the Trial of Sir Francis Bernard, at the Cockpit, Whitehall; but as the Assembly of New England have not been allowed to sit since his Return to England, it is more than probable that the Allegations against him can neither be fully " proved, nor properly supported. We are assured, that although a certain Ba- ronet is expected to be acquitted of all Ameri- can Accusations, he was this Day at Noon informed, by the Earl of H--------, that it was not his M— j— y's Intentions to employ him any more in America, but that he might hope for Employment of his Abilities in his Master's Services elsewhere. Yesterday a_ great Number of Officers and Subalterns, on Half- pay, waited on his Majesty at St. James's, with a Petition for the Aug- mentation of their Pay, and were graciously received. Yesterday the Hon. Mr. Dillon, Son of Lord Dillon, elected Member for Westbury, in the room of Sir William Blackstone, took the Oaths and his Seat in the House of Commons: As did also the Hon. James Fox, Esq; whose Seat was vacated for Midhurst, on being appointed one of the Lords of the Admiralty, but since re- elected. We hear that Admiral Holburne, lately ap- pointed one of the Lords of the Admiralty, was, on Tuesday last, re- elected Member for Plymouth, without Opposition. This Day was held a Court of Common Council it Guildhall, at which the Debates Were extremely warm and strenuous for and against a Common Hall to be granted for the Purpose of presenting a Remonstrance-; and, upon a Division; about Four o' Clock; it was carried in Behalf of a common Hall by a Ma- jority of 36. It has been intimated to a City Magistrate to take Care in What Manner the intended Re- monstrance is couched; for, should it contain any Thing disrespectful, or capable or disad- vantageous Constructions, prober . Notice will be taken thereof in Westminster Hall. We hear that Serjeant Glynn has pronounced the City Remonstrance to be in every Respect legal, let what Will be the Consequence. The Common Council of one of the City Wards having met, some Years since, without a Wardmote being called, came to a Resolution of buying Silk for their Mazarine Gowns out of the Ward Cash ; on Which Account, we are told, an Action will be commenced next Term, to oblige them to refund the said, Mo- ney : The Proof of which, it is said, will dis- qualify them ( including three of the present Sett) from holding any Office for the future. This Day, about Eleven o'Clock, came on in the Prerogative Court, Doctors Commons, before Dr. Bettesworth, t he much talked of Cause between Lord and Lady Grosvenor, for the Admissibility of a Libel. The Cause was opened by Dr. Gwyne ( L. Grosvenor's Coun- cil,) when immediately Mr. Stephens, Regis- ter of the Prerogative Court, and Council for Lady, Grosvenor, admitted the Libel, which consequently put a Stop to its being debated. Mr. Stephens then requested, that ten Days Notice might be given him by the opposite Council, previous to the entering on the Com- mission and Requisition of this Cause, which was for some Time objected to by Dr. Gwyne, on Account of keeping Witnesses in Town, who might live many Miles from London. However, the Demand appeared reasonable to the Judge, and it was entered as a Rule ac- - cordingly. Mr. Stephens then made a second Request that all Letters, written Messages, and other Informations, relative to this Affair, in the Possession of the Court, should not be com- - municated by Copies, or otherwise, except to the immediate Agents. Upon which, my Lord's Counsel got tip, and joined in the Request, and further said, that they had Lord Grosvenor's Directions for so doing. Dr. Bettesworth re- - marked upon this last Request, " that it was nothing but What was very reasonable and pro- per, as the Circulation of such Intelligence, previous to its coming on in the legal Way, may be attended with disagreeable Conse quences :" The following Order Was there- fore, by mutual Consent of all Parties, minu- ted in the Books. " That all Letters, written Messages, and other Informations, relative to the Affairs of Lord and Lady Grosvenor, should, on no Account whatsoever, be com- municated, by Copies or otherwise, to any Per- son, except the immediate Agents in this Af- fair, previous to its Determination." The Affair of an Hon. Gentleman who puts his Lady to the producing Proof of their Mar- riage is put Off till next Term. We hear that three Actions will be brought successively against a Half- pay Lieutenant by a Captain. First, for Seduction, which is al- ready commenced; the second, for a Libel ; and the third, for sending C s with an Intent to reflect upon his Character, knowing ( from a Former Conversation) it was not in his Power to accept of them. The Reason can only be known by one respectable Body. It is now said that a certain Serjeant declares he will not pay Land- Tax for his Estate in Cornwall, whilst Things remain as they are. We are told that, on Tuesday the 13th In- stant, John Sawbridge, Esq; will give a grand Entertainment to the Members of the Minority Club, at his House in New Burlington- street. Near four hundred Tickets are already distri- buted. Mrs. Macaulay, Sister to Mr. Saw- bridge-, and Miss Wilkes, We hear, are invited. A Correspondent says, " There cannot be a surer Sign that the M — ry are under no Apprehensions of a speedy Rupture with any of the continental Powers than their present Delay with regard to adjusting Matters on a proper Footing with North America ; for can it be supposed that were so important a Crisis at Hand, the Body politic would be suffered to remain in so dangerous and divided a Situation, both at home and abroad ?" By the most authentic Letters which have lately been received in Town, the Manufac- turers of Great Britain have the agreeable News, that the Combinations all over Ame- rica, respecting Non- importation, are break- ing up fast. This Morning a full Board was held at the Admiralty Office, when several Pursers' War- rants for capital Ships Were made out, and at the same Time an Express was sent off for the Commissioners of Portsmouth Dock. We are informed that there is not the least Truth in the Account in some of the Papers of the Sum of One Million and a Half Sterling, remitted from the Officers of the English East- India Company, and our free Merchants in Asia, by Way of France, having been stopped there by Order of the Court of Versailles. This Day at Noon a Report was industri- ously propagated upon ' Change, that the Ad- miral of the Spanish Fleet, supposed to be lately seen in the Latitude of Jamaica, had ta- ken a Pilot- Boat off that Island, and carried her away with him. Letters from Gibraltar mention, that three Expresses, at the Back of each other, had been received from London, and some Councils of War had been held by the principal Officers in the Garrison, in consequence thereof. They write from Lisbon, that the King had given Orders for some Men of War and Land forces to be instantly sent to the Brazils. The Truce between the House of Austria and the Porte expired the 24th ult. Politicians are extremely anxious to know whether it will be renewed, as its Dissolution at the present Juncture might be of the utmost Consequence to the Peace of Europe. Advices received from Vienna inform, that the Treaty between the Grand Signor and the Court of Ispahan is totally dissolved ; and that, is consequence, the Persians must unavoidably be engaged in the present War between the Turks and Russians. According to recent Letters from Venice, it was thought the Republic had at last suffered itself to be prevailed on to espouse the Cause of the Grand Signor against the Russians, and it was said some lslands in the Morea were to be the Price of this Concession. The French and Spaniards have warmly so- licited the Grand Master of Malta to keep an exact Neutrality between the Turks and the Russians. In the Action of the 29th of January, be- tween the Russians and the Confederates, near Ursihn, General Czartoryski, the Russian Com- mandant, had a Horse shot under him; and the Confederates, on their Side, besides 250 killed, loft also their Colonel, Wicrechowski. The latter amounted in the Whole to 2000 Men, under the Conduct of three Marshals. The English Serjeants at Portsmouth have made great Progress on board Admiral Elphin- ston's Fleet, in teaching the Russian Soldiers and Marines the manual Exercise, and Evolu- tions of Firing, as practised in his Majesty's Ships of War ; and, it is said, some of them will have Leave to go Volunteers to the Medi- terranean. It is said the Dutch, Venetians, Genoese, and the Inhabitants of Switzerland, have lost Eight Millions Sterling by the late Manoeuvres in the French Funds.— This must make our Stocks rise of Course, as it is the only free Market left. From the Calculation that has been handed about, it appears that, during the Course of last Year, there died in the Province of Hol- land alone 141,853 Beasts, and that 54,206 only, recovered from the Distemper. Letters from St. Jago de la Vega, Jamaica, mention, 27 Cormaritu Negroes, convicted of Conspiracies, and an Insurrection against the White People, had just been condemned to suf- fer Death in different Manners, some by hang- ing, and the - Ringleaders to be burnt at the Stake. Letter from Kilkenny, Ireland, Feb. 14. " We learn from Callen, that on Sunday Night, the 4th Instant, a dreadful Fray hap- pened at the House of Edmund Harbert, of Killaloe, near Desart, in this County, occa- sioned by a Party of about 17 Fellows coming to his House, who, after breaking open the same, and using the Family with much Cru- elty, forcibly carried off Mary Harbert ) Daugh- ter of the said Edmund) who has not since been heard of. The Girl's Father and Mother, in striving to keep their Child from the Hands of the Ravishers, were so severely treated, that the former died of his Wonnds last Sunday, and the Mother's Life is despaired of. We also learn, that one of the principal Ring- leaders in the Murder received a Stroke of a Hatchet, of which he is since dead." The following Anecdote of C —— l L 1 may be positively depended on as authentic: About two Months ago, a Lady of Quality lost her Gold Watch at an Assembly; for some particular Reasons she did not chuse to advertise it. Last Friday Night, between eleven and Twelve o'Clock, a Person with a Mask on his Face, knocked smartly at the Lady's Door in Berkeley Row; a Foot- boy opened the Door, and retreated back much frightened; the masked Person, however, only slid a Parcel upon the Ground, and then hastily made off. The Par- cel was directed to the Lady, who, on opening it, found, to her great Astonishment, the Gold Watch, and also a Letter with these Words : " Madam, Necessity robbed you of this, and Ho- " nour restores it."

Geneva, February 16. YESTERDAY, at Three, a very dan- gerous Sedition broke out in this city. The Design of the Persons concerned in it was to murder the Council, and afterwards the Bur- gesses, and then to make themselves Masters of the City. In Half an Hour more All had been lost. Two or three hundred had began to sire, but did no other Mischief than slightly wounding a few. The Alarm was then given, and the General beat. The Garrison were in a Moment under Arms, and four of the Sedi- tious laid dead on the Spot. Their main Body, which exceeded two thousand, all active, bold Persons, were at Fouro. The four Syndics in Office went there, and ordered them to lay down their Arms. The Insurgents refused ; but the good Countenance of the Garrison, supported by a Party of the Burgesses, obliged them to surrender. The Ringleaders were taken and committed to Prison, and it is imagined will lose their Heads, as well as several others who have just been apprehended. Among the Dead are four Persons. We expect To- mor- row 600 Men from Nyon, which, it is hoped, will put an End to this unhappy Affair. Vienna, Feb. 17. All the military Officers ' in this City, who are not charged with some particular Commission on Account of the Troops, are ordered to join their respective Regiments without Delay. LONDON, Saturday, March 3. His Majesty has been pleased to grant unto the Right Hon. Henry Paget, Baron of Beau- desert in the County of Stafford, full Power, Licence, and Authority, to take upon him the Name of Paget, and to use and bear the Arms, Crest, and Supporters of Paget; the same be- ing first duly exemplified to him according to the Law of Arms. Gazette. We hear that Bets last Night, in the Com- mittee of the Robinhood Club, on the Sub- ject of the Dover Election, were 122 to 15 Upon a Motion being made on Wednesday, in a certain political Society, for an Enquiry into the State of the Civil Lift Debt, and for the Vouchers shewing in what Manner such Debt was incurred, the Society divided, when 165 were for the proposed Enquiry, and 262 against it. A certain Lady of high Rank, not far from Charing- Cross, we are assured, has declared that it was her well- known Intention not to keep her Place at Court any longer than this Winter, on Account of some Measures that she very plainly saw, at her Times of waiting, were constantly carried on from a Quarter, by one of her own Sex, in Pall- Mall. It is now confidently asserted that the Lady of Sir F. Norton will shortly be created a Peeress in her own Right, and that a Patent is actually ordered to be made out for that Purpose. , It is now reported, that the Expence of Pay and Cloathing the Militia of this Island will be defray'd out of the Monies arising by the Land Tax of the current Year. It is further reported, that Accounts of the Quantity and Value of Teas, exported to the American Colonies from Christmas 1761, to Christmas 1769, are making out for Inspection Accounts have been presented of all Goods, & c. exported to North America, during the last two Years. Accounts are also said to be preparing; of all • Monies issued for Secret and Special Services since his Majesty's Accession to the Throne. Similar Accounts are making out for the last eight Years of his late Majesty's Reign. " The Tools of the Ministry say, that we shall have no Lottery this Year ; while the Friends of Opposition assert, that the Supplies cannot be raised without the Assistance of that Taxation. It having appeared upon a late Trial, that the Stock- jobbers, who, by their Conduct in a certain great Company, defeated every bene- ficial Plan of Accommodation with the State, were supplied by a certain Secretary with French Gold for that Purpose, it is now thought the Affair will become a Subject of Parliamentary Enquiry. Yesterday George Pitt, Esq; kissed his Ma- jesty's Hand, on being appointed Ambassador to the Court of Madrid, in the room of Sir James Gray. Private Letters from Madrid strongly inti- mate, that his Catholic Majesty has actually ordered three powerful Fleets to be fitted out with all Expedition ; one of them is to cruize in the Mediterranean ; but the Destination of the other two is not certainly known ; some say that one is to sail towards the West, and the other towards the East Indies. They are in such Forwardness that they will be ready to sail in a very little Time. Letters from Constantinople say, " We intend opposing here, to the Russian Fleet, nineteen Ships of War, eight of which are ready, and the reft on the Point of being built. Letters from Petersburgh mention that the Empress has ordered proper Persons to survey the Ports on the Caspian Sea, and the Parts adjacent, to Kampschatka, in order, as it is conjectured, to fend a Squadron into those Parts, to assist the Persians, who, it is expected, will, this Spring, act offensively against the . Turks. The Empress of Russia is determined to ap- pear in Person at the Head of her Forces the ensuing Spring. Gay at Guildhall. sir William Stephenson pre- sented a Memorial, signed by Messrs. Bull, Lovell, Summers, Bodington, Laurence, and Skey, setting forth that they were a Committee appointed by the Livery of London, and that they, the Livery of London, had presented R. Petition to his Majesty, setting forth their Grie- vances, to which they have had no Answer, and praying the Court to join them in a Petition to the Lord Mayor for a Common Hall. A Mo- tion was made that the said Memorial be read, which, after much Debate, was carried in the Affirmative, on a Division, three Aldermen and 109 Commoners against fifteen Aldermen and 61 Commoners ; the Petitioners were then called in, and their Memorial read, and they severally acknowledged their Signature to be theirs; after which the Lord Mayor acquainted the Court he should call a Common Hall next Tuesday. The following is a Copy of the MEMORIAL • which was presented to the Court of Common Council on Thursday Last. To the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, Alder- men, and Commons of the City of London, in Common Council assembled. The Memorial of the Committee of the Livery of London, appointed the 28th of September last. Sheweth, THAT the Livery of London, in Common Hall assembled, did, on the 24th of June last, direct a Petition to be presented to his Majesty, praying a Redress of many enumerated and in- tolerable Grievances. The Subjects of the most despotic Prince on Earth, when they hum- bly petition their Sovereign on the Score of Grievances, though they cannot promise to themselves Redress, at least expect an Answer. That the Livery of London know they have a Right to both; yet, contrary to ancient Usage, the Livery of his Majesty's loyal City of Lon- don, after a Delay of eight Months, do still remain unanswered and unrelieved. That the Violation of the Right of Election, by which they are most especially affected, has been, sines that Time, avowed and declared legal by the Influence of his Majesty's Ministers. Your Memorialists, therefore, apply to you, the Common Council of the City of London, that you may join with them in a Request to the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, speedily to assemble the Livery of the several Companies of this City in a Common Hall, that they may have an Opportunity to take such Measures therein, for the Re- establishment and Security of their ancient Rights and Franchises, as the Times require. The principal Speakers were: For the Livery's Memorial, Aldermen, The Right Hon. the Lord Mayor; Mr. Sheriff Townsend; Mr. Sheriff Sawbridge. Commons, Mr. Bellas; Mr. Freeman; Mr. Beard- more. Tellers, Mr. Bellas, Mr. Beardmore. Against it, Aldermen, Mr. Harley; Mr. Turner; Mr. Bird; Mr. Rosseter. Commoners, Mr. Patter- son; Mr. Wilson, late Deputy; Mr. Deputy Ellis; Mr. Edward Barwick. Tellers, Mr. Deputy Patterson, Mr. Deputy Wilson. The Gentlemen of the Livery who signed the Memorial to the Court of Alderman to beg they might be indulged with a Common Hall, met with very severe Treatment from a certain Right Honourable Alderman; it is said they were threatened to be brought before the Bar of the H of C ; upon this, very warm Debates arose, which lasted several Hours, and after every Effort to baffle and confound the Memorialists had been tried in vain, it was carried by a great Majority in their Favour. It is now positively said, that the Freeholders of Middlesex will be the first to follow the Ex- ample of the Livery of London, in the Article of Remonstrating'. If the Example of London should be fol- lowed as universally as is expected, the Pa- triots will have the Pleasure of plaguing the Ministry, if no other Consequence arises from it. At their Majesties Entrance into Drury- Lane Theatre, on Thursday Night, they were received with universal Acclamations of Joy. We are now credibly informed that his Ma- jesty has no Intention of visiting his German Dominions this Summer. But we are credibly informed that his Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester proposes to make the Tour of Scotland and Ireland early this Spring. On Monday Morning last, at Eight o'Clock, the High Court of Justiciary met at Edinburgh, according to Adjournment, and proceeded to the Trial of Mungo Campbell, late Officer of Excise at Saltcoats, accused of the Murder of Alexander Earl of Eglington. Soon after the Opening of the Court, the Roll of the Jury was called over, and the Gentlemen appointed to pass upon the Assize of the Panel, and were sworn in, as usual. After which the Court proceeded to examine the Witnesses against the Panel, which lasted till Nine o'Clock at Night. The Evidence for the Prosecutors being finish- cd, the Court examined the exculpatory Evi- dence for the Panel, which continued till about Twelve o'Clock, when Mr. Lockhart, Dean of Faculty, summed up the Evidence for the Prosecutors; after which, Mr. David Rae sum- med it up for the Panel. The Court dismissed about Five o'Clock on Tuesday Morning, at which Time the Jury were enclosed ; and on Tuesday Evening, at Six o'clock, they re- a great Plurality of voices, the panel Guilty ; on which he was sentenced to he hanged in the Grafs- Market at Edinburgh on Wednesday the 11th of April next. During the whole of this awful Ceremony Mr. Campbell never changed Countenance, but stood firm and undaunted. He said nothing to the Court, but made a re- spectful Bow. The numerous Audience were struck with his Appearance. The Petition in Behalf of Kennedy and his Brother, who were ordered for Execution on Monday last, was signed by thirteen Noblemen and Gentlemen of the highest Rank, and was presented to his Majesty on Monday Morning at the Queen's Place before Seven o'Clock, by the Earl of Carflile, Lord Robert Spencer, and Geo. Selwyn, Esq. Upon which his Majesty wrote a Letter immediately to the Earl of Rochford, granting a Respite for one Week. And on Thursday Evening a further Respite, during his Majesty's Pleasure, was sent to Newgate for these two unhappy Brothers. They write from Hereford, that on the 26th ult. about Dusk, three of the criminal Prisoners made their Escape out of the County Gaol; one of them ( Brazier, a Convict) knocked down the Turnkey, and almost strangled him, then made his Way cross the Town Wall, Town- Ditch, and another Brook, in which he was up to his Chin. They were immediately pursued, and, after an obstinate Engagement, all three taken. Presented.] Phipps Weston, B. D.

He had. about five Weeks ago, a young Fet low with him with one Eye, and went ( as he says) sel ing Corks about the Country with him. WHEREAS Thomas Watkins, Attorney at Law, in this City, was appointed by one, since my Minority, and in my Absence, to receive sundry Rents belonging to me here, which Rents the said Watkins has not brought regularly to Account, particu- larly the Rent of a Malt- House of Six Pounds per Annum, occupied by Edward Fisher, deceased, who, as the said Witkins informed me, died without Assets, and that there was nothing to be got ; but, on my enquiring, found the deceased Fisher to be a very honest Man, and a Servant to one John Jenkins, of the City of Bristol, Corn- Factor. On my Application to the said Jenkins, he informed me his Servant Fisher paid his Rent regularly, and he would produce the yearly Receipt for Rent, under the said Wat- kins's Hand, which he did, and now is in my Possession; by which it appears, that he has neither brought to Ac- count the Year 1766, or the Year 1767. Now, this is to inform the said Watkins, that a Process at Law shall he immediately commenced against him, without he makes such Concession as myself and Friends shall deem ade- quate to so notorious a Fraud.

THE Tanners of this Kingdom in general taking into Consideration the present Scarcity and excessive high Price of Bark, which arises partly from divers Persons having of late engrossed and bought up great Quantities, and partly from the unseason- able felling of Oak out of Barking- Time, contrary to an Act of JAMES the First, Chap. 18, which faith,—— That no Person or Persons shall regrate, ingross, or get into their Hands, by buying, contracting, or Promise- taking, any Oaken Bark before it be stripped, or after, to the Intent to sell the same again, upon Pain of Forfeiture of all such Barks so by him or them regrated, ingrossed, or bought, con- trary to the true Meaning of this present Branch, or the full Value thereof.

THURSDAY's POST. ( By EXPRESS from LONDON.) LONDON, March 6. WE are assured that the warlike Pre- parations of France and Spain, and the Destination of their Fleets, have been the Subject of two CA- binet C-------- Is. A Motion was made on Friday Night in the H e of L- ds, " To address his M y to increase the Number of Seamen, and to put the Nation in a Posture of Defence." Which Motion was warmly supported by L— d Ch — m and the E— l of S—— ne, the former of whom said, among other Things, " That nothing could be a greater Proof of the Remissness of the present M y to the real Welfare of the Nation, than, at a Time that some of the Maritime Powers of Europe had more formi- dable Fleets at Sea than were ever before known, and others were making such Preparations, as plainly indicated their hostile Designs, to re- main in a State of supine Negligence, with only a Vote of sixteen thousand Seamen, in- cluding Marines, to man our Navy— our only Bulwark, Butteress, and Defence." The D— e of G—— n opposed this Motion, and pagated by News- writers and Stock- jobbers, relative to the warlike Designs of the. French and Spaniards were entirely groundless ; and concluded with proposing an Adjournment of the Motion till Yesterday, that the L— ds of the Ad ty might be consulted ; " and the Question being put, this last Motion was car- ried by a Majority of Voices. Yesterday the Petition of the Merchants trading to America was taken into Considera- tion in the Lower- Room of the Robinhood So- ciety, when a certain Polar Gentleman declared it his Opinion, that the Duty upon Paper, Glass, and Painters Colours exported to America should be taken off. Billy Sugar- Cane opposed that Opinion, and recommended an Alteration, which was not approved of by the Society.— Mr. P ll declared that he thought the Duty upon Tea should likewise be taken off. — The Question was debated till Twelve o'Clock when there appeared Against the Amendment 204 For - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 142 Majority 62 Immediately after the first Question was put, and agreed to without a Division. A patriotic Nobleman was last Week heard publicly to declare, that since every body was now convinced that the Liberties of Great Bri- tain might be essentially lost by a corrupt Ma- jority voting it away upon every Occasion, it highly behoved the K and People to think in good Earnest of establishing the Treasury upon another Footing, which might put it out of the Power of any Man, or Set of Men, to corrupt the Representatives of the People with their own Money. It was on Sunday Night said at the Coffee- Houses in the Neighbourhood of St. James's, that Governor B — d had made a Discovery of some important Matters, which reflect no great Honour on the Characters of several dis- tinguished Personages in this Kingdom. A Scheme is in Agitation among the West India Merchants, for presenting a Memorial to the Throne setting forth the great Necessity of taking immediate Measures towards the Se- curity of our Western Settlements at this alarm- ing Juncture; where it is expected France and Spain, in Conjunction, are upon the Point of striking a long meditated Blow. By recent Advices we learn that a Scheme is now in Agitation for enlarging the several Dock- Yards belonging to the Crown of France. We hear from Dunkirk, that the Sluices and Back- water of the Canal of Mardyke are dili- gently repairing, and the old Materials pulled up, and regularly numbered ; so that the Har- bour and Works may at any Time be restored to the State they were in during the last War. The Assistance of the continental Powers in Alliance with Great Britain will be demanded if she is engaged in a future War with France or Spain. Yesterday Morning four City Members, the two Sheriffs, Mr. Alderman Stephenson, Sir Henry Banks, Mr. Deputy Ellis, Mr. Deputy Paterson, with Mr. Peter Roberts, the City Re- membrancer, went to the House of Commons with the Memorial, which was confirmed in a Court of Common Council held at Guildhall the 1st Instant, in Opposition to the Bill brought into the House by the Commissioners of the Pavement for the City and Liberty of Westmin- ster, for levying an additional Toll upon Plea- sure Carriages. We have received, from a Correspondent, the following further Particulars relative to the Transactions at Guildhall on Thursday last :— When the Requisition for granting the Common Hall was first made by the Committee of the Livery, it was supported by the Lord Mayor and the two Sheriffs, who said every Thing that could be well said on the Reasonableness of such an Indulgence. Mr. Alderman T— ner then got up, and spoke for above Half an Hour on its Impropriety : He urged, " That a Re- monstrance of this Nature was improper, ( to call it by no harsher Name) as well as unneces- sary— Improper, as dictating so arbitrarily on a Subject that had already been canvassed by both Houses of P t; and unnecessary, as it was very improbable, after so minute an Investiga- tion, there would be any Notice taken of it." On his being asked, Why he carried the Petition ? he answered, " He did it officially ; for as he, from his Office, looked upon himself to be at the Head of the Livery, he could not with Propriety refuse their Request; but even at that Time it was by no Means agreeable to his private Sentiments, as may be remembered from his altering the Words The Petition of the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, Common Council, and Livery of the City of London, to the Words The Petition of the Livery of the City of London. Alderman Harley spoke likewise with great Warmth upon the Subject, calling such a Meet- ing factious and licentious, and said, " For his Part, as a Member of P t, he would take the earliest Opportunity of bringing all those who signed the Remonstrance to the Bar of the H e, to answer for such Conduct." Upon which Mr. Sheriff T d replied, " Why then, by God's Blessing, you shall begin with me, as I am determined to be one of the first Subscribers." The Altercation became every Minute warmer and warmer; and it was expected, at diffe rent Times, that instead of laying their Heads to- gether, they would fall to Logger- heads. It is now thought that Remonstrating will be as general as was Petitioning. rous Common Hall or the Livery of the City of London at Guildhall, agreeable to the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor's Precept on that Occasion. At One o'Clock the Lord Mayor, attended by the two Sheriffs, Sir William Ste- phenson and Mr. Alderman Trecothic, with the City Officers, entered the Hall, from the Council Chamber, and after the Common Cryer had opened the Hall, and proclaimed Silence, the Lord Mayor came forward on the Hustings, and spoke to the following Effect : Gentlemen of the Livery, " I have convened you together on this Day, at the Requisition of the Committee of the Livery of this City, as well as the Advice of the Aldermen and Common Council ; and, I hope, from the Specimen you gave of your Decorum and liberal Behaviour at the last Common Hall, every Thing will be alike con- ducted this Day. The Cause of your Meeting proceeds from our repeated Grievances ; such as the Number of Placemen in the House of Commons, the Mal- Administration of Evil Counsellors, and, above all, the Freedom of Election being violated — that Basis of our Constitution, that Birthright of every English- man : I therefore hope you will consider duly of all these, in which you may expect every Assistance from the Chief Magistrate of this City, who I look upon to be the Servant of the Public. " He said, he was glad to see so great a Number of the Livery in the Hall; and looking round him, asked, do these look like the Base- born, or the Scum of the Earth, as they had been insolently called, in common with their Fellow- Subjects, by the Hirelings of the Mi- nistry; by Men whom the Ministry hired with the public Money, to abuse the People." Mr. Lovel next stood forth ; and, address- ing himself to the Hall, expatiated on the Ne- cessity of a Remonstrance : " At this Time, ( says he) when the public Money is so shame- fully squandered on useless Placemen and Pen- sioners, who swarm about our Streets in as great Numbers as the Locust and Caterpillars did in the Kingdom of Egypt." The Common Serjeant then asked, Whether it was their Pleasure the Remonstrance ( which he then had in his Hands) should be read ; on which the whole Court cried out, " Read, Read."— The Town Clerk then came forward and read the Remonstrance, entitled, The Re- monstrance of the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Li- very of the City of London, to his Majesty; which substantially complained of the Disregard shewn their former Petition, enumerated several un- constitutional Proceedings, and concluded by praying a Removal of the present M rs, and a D- ss- n of the present P t. After this was twice read by the TownClerk, the Common Cryer collected the Approbation of the Hall, by holding up of Hands, when every Hand was up, except one, which upon some People saying was a Mistake, the Lord Mayor desired personally to ask the Person ; who answered, " It was not, for he dissented in- tentionally." It was Mr. Bedell, in Basing- Lane. It was then proposed by the Common Serjeant, whether it was the Pleasure of the Gentlemen of the Livery, that the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, City Representatives, Sheriffs, and City Officers, should present this Remonstrance to his Majesty, which was unanimously ap- proved of, save only the former Person who dissented on the first Proposal. The Sheriffs were then desired to wait upon his Majesty, to know his Pleasure when he would be attended on with the Remonstrance. The Remonstrance, when engrossed, is to be signed by the Town Clerk ( it was so moved and agreed to upon the Hustings) and, we are informed, will have the Corporation Seal af fixed to it. It was remarked by many Persons present, that they had never seen the Livery of London make so respectable an Appearance as this Day. There were about four thousand in the Hall. The Rev. Mr. Horne was present in the Chamberlain's Gallery. In order to rob the Livery's Remonstrance of its Weight as much as possible, we are assured a Protest is preparing, and Persons to sign it now canvassing for. All the Bye- Laws of the Court of Common Council made within these two hundred Years, are, by Order of the Lord Mayor, to be printed with the utmost Expedition, for the Use of the Aldermen and Common Council. A Motion of a Nature that much engages the Attention of Politicians, we hear, will be made on Wednesday next in a certain political Club, by Mr. D ll. It is said that a noble L d, who made so distinguished a Figure in a certain Place on Friday last, was so ill of the Gout at the Time, that he was obliged to ask the Indulgence of those present, to speak in his Seat, with his Legs in an horizontal Position. Sunday there was a Court and Drawing- Room at St. James's: Their Majesties did not go to Chapel, on Account of the Queen's In- disposition, the Sermon was preached by the Right Rev. the Lord Bishop of Worcester. The Requisition and Commission in the G r Cause which will speedily Issue from the Commons, are in order that the Witnesses may be examined previous to the Beginning of next Term, that the Determina- tion of the Cause may not be retarded. It is certain that Lord G r fues for no Damages, but only a positive Divorce. Previous to the Determination of a Cause now depending in Doctor's Commons, it is said ramour, will spend some Months together at Paris. The Sister of the two Kennedys has been some Time kept by a certain Jockey Noble- man, who is very earnest in his Endeavours to procure a Reprieve for her two unfortunate Brothers now under Sentence of Death. From Edinburgh we have just received Ad- vice that the Sentence of the High Court of Justiciary passed on Mungo Campbell, was, " That he should be conducted back to Prison, and fed on Bread and Water till Wednesday the 11th of April, when he was to be carried to the Grass- Market, and hanged, and his Body given to the Professor of Anatomy to be dissected :" — But that on the Morning of the 28th past, Mr. Campbell thought proper to prevent the Execution of this Sentence, by ma- king away with himself. The Method he took was to fasten a Table- Cloth to one End of a long Form, which he planted upright for that Purpose. He next made a Noose on a Silk Handkerchief, which he put round his Neck, having fixed it to the Table- Cloth, he pushed away a Stool which he stood on, and was found hanging in that Posture. Mr. Rae, Council for Mr. Mungo Camp- bell, pleaded, that there was no legal Proof of Mr. Campbell's having fired the fatal Piece in- tentionally ; and that supposing him to have done so, he was not guilty of Murder, as his Property and Honour were assaulted, and his Life perhaps in Danger. A Letter from Edinburgh mentions, that the Fate of Mungo Campbell was determined by the Evidence of the late Lord Eglington's Ser- vants, who deposed, that the Prisoner abso- lutely took particular Aim at the Deceased, and fired his Piece. Campbell affirmed it went off accidentally by his falling down. We hear there are no less than sixty Persons to be tried at York, this Circuit, for diminish- ing the current Coin of the Realm ; there are likewise forty others for the like Offence, who have absconded.

On Monday last was committed to our County Gaol, one Michael Horsley, charged with steal- ing several Parcels of Corn, the Property of Mr. Thomas Wilkes, of Blockley, in this County. Last Monday Evening, about Seven o'Clock, Knightsford Bridge ( the Rebuilding of which had been finished but very lately) fell in, a few Minutes after Mr. Edw. Haskew, of this City, had come over on Horseback ; and about two Hours before it fell, a Broad Wheel Waggon, belonging to Mr. Tudor of Leominster, passed over it. MY LORD, THOUGH I have not the Honour of be- ing known to your Lordship, I have that of being your Admirer; and, what will appear still more extraordinary, I admire and respect you the more for your being calumniated and reproached by others. Not from local nor par- tial Motives, my Lord, but from the Love of Virtue and Honour. Nor shall all the Fana- ticism of unthinking People, divert me from the Admiration and Commendation of that which is privately good and publicly illustrious. I will not affirm, that your Lord ship is without a Fault; I mean, in this Address, to speak the Sentiments of an honest English Mind, and not the Language of Adulation. If, in viewing the inferior Parts of a noble and magnificent Building, some Inconveniences and Imper- fections should appear to a judicious and bene- volent Observer, he will generously attribute the Defects to the imperfection of human Na- ture ; and chearfully allow, when there is great Merit in the whole Construction, that the Edifice is superb, in Justice to the Design of the skilful Architect, and to the Taste of the generous, Master. So, my Lord, in the De- lineation of your public Character ( for your private Life has always been held in the highest Estimation, and your social and moral Virtues have escaped even the Malice of Envy) should some Imperfections, like those of a noble Struc- ture, be discovered, the Good and the Wife will exclaim, humanum est errare ! And that the Whole merits our highest Admiration and Com- mendation, for the Largeness of your Ideas, and for the humane and benevolent Tendency of your Actions. I am no Panegyrist, my Lord, nor yet a Time- serving Sycophant ; but the Ingratitude, or rather the Ignorance and Perverfeness of the Times, is such, that I am lest to do now that Justice and Honour to the Butean Administra- tion, which should have been done some Years ago. And this Task I have voluntarily under- taken, and with the greater Chearfulness, be- cause others have not only neglected it, but have even suffered the brightest Characters to be reproached, and the noblest Actions to be misrepresented, for the Gratification of private and ignoble Purposes of their Party. I have considered your Lordship, since the last Peace, like those primitive Christians, who, being conscious of good, Actions, and of having lain out their best Endeavours in a good Cause, patiently suffered Martyrdom as the temporal Reward of Virtue; and who, unshaken by the uncharitable and unrelenting Perfections of the Times, persevered to the End in the glorious Work. Or like those bright Ornaments of the Roman State, who, unmoved by the Iniquity of their Days, nobly exclaimed, We have Minds free from Self. Reproach; and by a virtuous Per- severance, disappointed their Foes, and the Foes of their Country. And thus your Lord- ship ( who acts upon the same religious Prin- ciples of Fidelity to your Royal Mailer, and Attachment to your Country) will, with the same noble Resistance and Perseverance, effect the most salutary Purposes, and rife superior to the Outrage, of unmerited and ungenerous Ca- lumny and Reproach. I know, my Lord, that nothing is so hard for a generous Mind to get over, as Calumny and Reproach, and cannot find any Method of quieting the Soul under them, besides that of being conscious to ourfelves, we do not deserve them with the Hopes that Time, which dis- covers all Things, will make bad Men ashamed of their Conduct, and leave these who have de- served well of their Country, in the quiet Pos- session of a good Conscience, and the Merit of their public Actions As there is nothing, in human Nature, so striking as the Struggles of a noble Mind, so there is no Period of your Life, which, in my Opinion, is more illustrious than the present; in which your Lordship is nobly great in the Government of the human Passions, against the mast ungenerous Perfections of your unre- lenting Foes, and, I will again say, the Foes of your Country. If your Virtues in private Life were before worthy of Admiration, the Principles of your public Actions, and the Greatness of your Mind, are now manifestly worthy of the Example and Imitation of the most illustrious Men. To be perfectly good, my Lord, is an Attribute in the Divine Nature, to be so to the utmost of our Abilities is the Glory of a Man. The ungenerous Aspersions of many design- ing Individuals, have been altogether unwor thy of any Notice; but one cannot, without being totally lost to all Sense of Shame, and without having abandoned every Sentiment of Virtue and Honour; I say, my Lord, one can- not be unconcerned and silent in Regard to the alarming Designs of such Men as Dr. Mus- grave, and his unthinking Abettors; who, by sowing the Seeds of Discord, and giving fresh Vigour to Party Rage ( which has too long sub- sisted) strike at the personal Liberties of the most exalted Characters, and at the very Root of our excellent Constitution ; which must ne- cessarily be subverted, in Defiance of all Laws and Subordination, if the Legislature does not step forth and put a Stop to such inflammatory and dangerous Practices, which are evidently calculated to throw the Nation into Disorder and Confusion to gratify the private Purposes of designing Men. by Step, I shall observe, upon the Whole of his Conduct, that his Address, and the Com- ment of his Abettors, were manifestly a Party Design, calculated to rouse the Passions of the unthinking and deluded Part of the Com- munity, against the illustrious Persons who judiciously advised, and who were, under God and his Majesty, the noble Instruments of bringing the Peace to a happy Conclusion in 1762. The Parliament was so sensible, either of the Frivolousness of the Accusation, or the Malignity of the Design, that the Author was dismissed, as unworthy of their Notice, to the Confusion of those who had a Hand in the In- vention, and to the Honour of the Persons it was intended to prejudice in their Reputations, and to injure in their Fortunes. I felicitate your Lordship very heartily and respectfully on this judicious Parliamentary Decision, than which nothing can be more just, in my Appre- hension ; since I will undertake to demonstrate, as clear as the Sun in its Meridian, that the very bad Peace which your Foes have long talked of, without knowing any Thing of the Matter, does great Honour to the Humanity and Policy of the British Nation ; and that the Butean Administration merits, on that very Account, our highest Admiration and Acknow- ledgements, for their Virtue and Sagacity in being the noble Instruments of that very neces- sary and very happy, Event, But this, my Lord, shall be the Subject of another Letter, from one who, having been mistaken in many political Points is now convinced of his Error; and thinks, after the Example of the great Rachefoucault, " That no Man should be ashamed to own himself in the Wrong, as he thereby proves that he is wiser this Minute than he was the Minute before." One, my Lord, who has always respected you, though he has greatly injured others; and who, in his Recantation, will, in Justice to the Injured, stile himself the converted JUNIUS. To all ( under whatever Denomination) who are Well Wishers to JOHN WILKES, Esq. THE Period approaches when our Friend, the common Friend of the whole Nation, shall, breathe the Air of Liberty:— The Harpy, Persecution, relaxes her Gripe-- Wilkes and the Spring re- visit us together.——— The Influence, though different, is general : Good Men rejoice at the Event— The Mini- sters and their black- hearted Adherents, look pale, and are discomfited The Prospect, I grant, is flattering:— Yet, ere we prepare the Song of Triumph, let us examine whether we have Reason to boast of a Victory. Our Obligations to the Gentleman are great: He has not only, promised, but per- formed ; the Day of Trouble has proved, him ; his Metal has been in the Furnace, tried, and found intrinsic; what he has already done is a Guarantee for his future Behaviour: He has sacrificed Fortune, encountered Danger, and hazarded even Life in our Service;— The Dagger of the Assassin his been listed against him, and the Bullet of the Duellist lodged in his Body Now let us cast a Glance upon the Returns that have been made him:— For, tho' the true Patriot expects no Recompence— Gratitude should give him ALL — ALL in her Power to bestow.— Is a Song, an Acclamation, the festive Remembrance of him in our Bowls, an adequate Compensation for the Benefits he has procured ? — No, certainly ! —' Tis true, in- deed, one Body of patriotic Gentlemen have nobly stood forth, and stemmed the Torrent of Oppression :— And a late Remittance, Vote, from a public- spirited Assembly on the other Side the Atlantic, has made their Colony im- mortal, and is a severe, though tacit Reproach to Us.— These Instances excepted, what has been done for him ?— A few trifling Presents have, perhaps, rendered his Confinement a little more confortables ; yet now he is about to return to the World, he will be almost as destitute of every Thing as when he. first came into it:— To suffer him to remain in this Si- tuation, is neither consistent. with the Sense of Gratitude, nor the, Genius of our Nation. The Love of the People has been always esteemed the Prince's richest Exchequer, and ought to be so to those wh0 deserve Well of their Country.— Well— Methinks I hear you ask, What is to be done!— I say contribute.— Let each Man contribute: according to his Abi- lity, and the noble Impulfe of Gratitude;— Let no Person think his Donation inconsi- derable, because small: The Widow's Mite shines forth an Example, and the Intention will sanctify a Trifle. — The Gentlemen, Supporters of the Bill of Rights, if applied to, will, I venture to say, appoint proper Persons to re- ceive the smallest Sums, and there can be no Reason to doubt their Integrity in the Appli- cation :— This is the fairest perhaps the last Opportunity of proving ourselves true Sons of Liberty:— Suffer not Posterity to reproach their Fathers for an ill- timed Parsimony to the great Advocate of Freedom !— Let not this Man, I say, who has proved himself, hitherto, so il- lustriously consistent, be drove to the Necessity of pining out the Remainder of a Life ( a Life always devoted to out Service) in Want and Obscurity !— Fotbid it Hononr !— Eng- lishmen have nobler Feelings. which, I think, may be employed with the greatest Propriety at this Time, and which, I beg Leave strongly to recommend.— It is this: Many Rejoicings, by way of Processions, Illuminations, Entertainments, & c. & c. are, I know, intended to celebrate the Day of his Release : — I say, Let us give up the Festivity of a few Hours, and send the Sums which must be expended in such momentary Exhi- bitions, to increase the Fund I have recom- mended :— So shall we fully answer our Inten- tions of serving Mr. Wilkes, and rife the next Morning with a Heart- felt Satisfaction, instead of the Head- ach and a Dejection of Spirits.

BEING a new discovered Preparation, which gives Way to no other whatever, in pri- vate or publick Use, as has been already ex- perienced by some of the highest Rank in this Kingdom : There is no Roughness or Redness on the Skin whether occasioned by Wind, Sun, or Eruptions from Heats, Surfeits, & c. that it does not remove and soften; smooths and whitens the Skin to a more delicate and far greater De- gree than can be conceived from so innocent a Preparation, being entirely Vegetables, and equally innocent to Rose Water. The above is not only the most friendly Preserver and Clearer of the Skin to the Fair- Sex, but is also of infinite Use to Gentlemen after shaving, especially those whose Faces are apt to be rough and sore after that Operation. The most agreeable Effect it has also on Chil- dren and young Persons has rendered various Efforts to counterfeit it; but, as fordid and base Minds are sound who counterfeit the current Coin of Kingdoms, there is no Wonder such should be found to counterfeit private Property, especially Articles much in Esteem by the Pub- lic ; to prevent Which, for the future, a full and concise Bill of Richard Warren's Perfume Shop, in Coventry- Street, near the Hay- Market, will be given with each Bottle, and in all Places where it is appointed to be sold.

Pectoral Balsam of Honey, FOR Colds, Coughs, Asthmas, and Con- sumptions, a Medicine invented by Dr, HILLS Established by the Success of many Years; Colds are the Root of almost all Del- orders: A Winter Cough is a very bad Compa- nion; and the Ills that follow it are- endless. We know when we have been in the Way of get- ting Colds, and should prevent the Injury be- fore it is felt; very fight Things cause them; and Neglect gives them Strength; one Dose of this Medicine will at any Time prevent the Mischief. The sure Signs of having caught a Cold, are Pains, Heat, a Tickling in the Throat, stuffing up of the Nose, parched Mouth and uneasy Sleep There are difficult to be pre- vented, yet very easily remedied.
