THURSDAY, June 21, 1770. No. 3177. Berrow ' s Worcester Journal. Notwithstanding this Journal is, in most Places, distributed at least a whole Day before any other Country News Paper of the same Date, and also many Hours before the Arrival of the London Mail, it not only contains the most material News published in London on Tuesday Night, but many interesting Articles of Intelligence, not inserted in other Country Papers before the Saturday following. SATURDAY'S POST. AMERICA. Extract of a Letter from Boston, April 22, 1770. A Committee of the Town Meet- ing having waited upon the superior Court, requiring the Judges to proceed on the Trial of Captain Preston, and the 0ther Military Delinquents, the Court found it necessary, in order to keep the People quiet, to arraign Richardson for the killing youngSnider. Rich- ardson was arraigned on the Monday, and di- rected to prepare for his Trial on the Friday following. Accordingly on Friday he was brought To the Bar, and asked by the Court if he was then ready. He observed to the Court, that he had made Application to almost every Lawyer in Town to undertake his Cause, which no one would do; that the Constables had re- fused summoning his Witnesses; and that with- out Council, without the Privilege of calling upon his Witnesses to support his Innocence, he was now to be tried for his Life. The Judges, moved with Compassion at this Repre- sentation, put off the Trial to a further Day, and ordered Mr. Fitch, the Advocate- General, to appear on his Trial, which came on rile Day before Yesterday, when Richardson's well- disposed Counsel, Mr. Fitch, was sick, upon which the Court appointed Josiah Quincey, jun. to supply his Place. The Trial continued till Twelve o'Clock that Night, and the Jury fat till Light o'Clock Yesterday Morning; after the Witnesses were examined, and the Lawyers had done pleading, the Judges gave their Charge to the Jury with great Spirit and good Sense; they all agreed that the Prisoner had done nothing more than Necessity had con- strained him to, and made no Doubt but the Jury would acquit him. Vast Crowds of People attended during the Trial. After the Judges had delivered their Opinion, the Mob grew very outragious: They sometimes called out, " Remember, Jury, you are upon Oath ! Blood demands Blood!" It is said they had got a Halter ready to hang him in his Way from the Court- House to the Prison; but the Judges kept him for upwards of an Hour in the Court- House, until the Mob were principally disper- sed. At Eight o'Clock this Morning the Jury brought in their Verdict, Guilty of Murder. The Judges immediately adjourned the Court to the 29th of May, without passing Sentence. " Ever since what they call the Massacre of the 5th of March, the News- Papers have been full of Resolves from the different Towns, in Support of the Non- Importation Agreement, totally denying the Power of Parliament over the Colonies, and the King's Right of lodging Troops in any of the Provinces, without the previous Consent of their Legislature." LONDON, Thursday, June 14. Yesterday Morning, at Half past Nine, came on, in the Court of King's Bench, Guildhall, before Lord Chief Justice Mansfield, and a special Jury, the Trial of the original Printer and Publisher of Junius's Letter to the King, on Tuesday the 19th of December last ; only seven of the special Jury attended, whose Names were, William Bond, Foreman, Peter Cazalet, Hermen Meyer, Alex. Peter Allen, John Thomas, Frederic Commerell, Barrington Buggin. Upon which the following five Talesmen were taken out of the Box, viz. William Hannard, William Willett, Paul Verges, AND William Sibley, William Davis. The Letter being read, the Attorney General opened the Trial with a long, heavy Declama- tion ; by the great Part of it, which he dedi cated to the praising of Commerce, and expres- sing Happiness at having a Trial before a spe cial Jury of Merchants of London, it seemed more like the Preparatory of a Civil Cause con- cerning Trade, than the Trial of a Printer by Information for publishing a Libel. After he had paid the Jury all those trite Compliments which are so fulsome to the Ears of Men of Sense, he informed them, that the Letter in Question was totally and universally abhorred he declared, he was utterly unknown to the Persons under Prosecution ; that he had no personal Malice to any of them; that he had tiled the Information officially ; that he thought it the indispensible Duty of his Office, and therefore had ordered the Papers which con tained the Letter, to be bought and sent to him as soon as it appeared ; that he had selected a Number of Persons to file Informations against, as he would not prosecute any who might have large Families, but little Property, or who might be ruined by the Prosecution, or incapable of going to the Expence of defend- ing it. He then attempted to account for his not bringing on the original Printer's Trial first, giving it as his Opinion, that the Man who printed a Libel 011 the Tuesday, or any ensuing Day, was equally criminal with the Person who might originally have printed it on the Monday ; and informed the Jury, that he had Witnesses ready to prove the buying the Paper, and fix the Fail of Publication : He did not doubt therefore that they would brings the Plaintiff guilty. The Evidence were then called, who were Nathaniel Crowder, the pretended Newsman employed by the Ministry, who swore he bought the Paper of Mr. Woodfall's publishing Ser- vant, whom he named. Mr. Harris, of the Stamp- Office, who proved that the Duty for the Advertisements and the Stamps, were paid by Mr. Woodfall. And A Clerk of Sir John Fielding's, who being called, proved, by a Receipt from Mr. Wood- fall, his Concern in and for the Paper. The Publication and Direction of the Paper by Mr. Woodfall being thus proved, Mr. Ser- jeant Glynn rose up, and declared, He agreed with Mr. Attorney General, as to the Excel- lence of a London Jury, and doubted not the Liberties of the People were sufficiently safe, while there were Trials by Jury. He told the Jury, That if they were of Opinion that the Sense put upon Junius's Letter in the Informa- tion was the true Sense; if it was true, that it was a false, scandalous, and seditious Libel; if they thought his Client published it with a professed Intention, a premeditated Design of abusing and aspersing the King; if the Defen- dant meant or wished to alienate the Affections of his Majesty's Subjects; if it appeared to them that his End in printing it was to stir up Rebellion and Commotion, as honest Men they ought, and undoubtedly would, bring his Cli- ent in guilty: But if, on the contrary, the Temper of the Times was such, that the People needed that Kind of Information contained in the Letter, if the Facts could be proved, if the Acts of Government, in which the King, as Part of the Government, was necessarily and virtually concerned, highly demanded public Reprehension, and the Printer published it with the truly laudable Motive of informing his Fellow- Subjects; if, so far from containing any personal Abuse of the King, it was wrote with an honest but guarded Freedom, the Au- thor and Publisher would, by all worthy, all sensible Men, be considered as having acted the Parts of good Subjects, and good Citizens. He informed the Jury, That the Council for the Crown had not gone upon the Subject- Matter of the Letter; they did not even at- tempt to prove it a Libel, notwithstanding the Epithets bellowed upon it in the Information ; and that the Paper in which it was first printed, was not by any Means set apart solely to can- vas for Party or Fashion, but was equally open to all: He admitted that private personal Abuse was wrong, but the public Acts of Govern- ment often demanded public Acts of Scrutiny; that many, very many of the highest Rank, as well as from the highest to the lowest in the Opposition, had been scandalously traduced and villified in the public Papers with Impu- nity ; that if the Defendant was brought in guilty, the Hands of every Publisher would be tied behind him, and the Gentlemen not in Office, might, by the ministerial Scriblers, be abused to the greatest Degree, as it would be dangerous to answer them, if upon the Ap- pearance of every free Answer, Informations were to be filed, and the Printers convicted and punished, the Liberty of the Press was imme diately concerned, the Stroke was levelled at it in this Prosecution, but he did not doubt the Jury would maturely, deliberately, and atten tively consider the Matter, read over the Letter with Care and Circumspection, and if they found it was not written with Intent to vilify the Person of the King, but freely to canvas the Acts of Government, they would consider the Publisher as having done his Fellow- Sub jects essential Service, and acquit him. Mr. Serjeant Leigh, the other Council for the Defendant, then got up, and began with observing, that after the very learned and able Speech made by his Brother Glynn, little re- mained for him to say, but he particularly urged the Jury to consider the Intention of the Printer in publishing it, and to remember how peculiarly necessary it was, at this Juncture, that the Press should be open to all political Discussion. He defended the Paper on the same Principles as Mr. Glynn, and made a very eloquent and judicious Harangue, con cluding with declaring, that as no Intention could be proved, they ought not to find his Client guilty. Lord Mansfield in his Charge told the Jury, That there were only two Points for their Con- sideration; the first, the printing and publishing the Paper in Question; the second, the Sense and Meaning of it: That as to the Charges of its being malicious, seditious, & C. they were Inferences in Law about which no Evidence need be given, any more than that Part of an Indictment need be proved by Evidence, which charges a Man with being moved by the Insti gation of the Devil: That therefore the print ing and Sense of the Paper were alone what the Jury had to consider of ; and that if the Paper should really contain no Breach of the Law, that was a Matter which might afterwards be moved in Arrest of Judgement : That he had no Evidence to sum up to them, as the Defen- dant's Council admitted the Printing and Pub- lication to be well proved: That as to the Sense, they had not called in Doubt the Man- ner in which the Dashes in the Paper were filled up in the Record, by giving any other Sense to the Passages ; if they had, the Jury would have been to consider Which Application was the true one, that charged in the Informa- tion, or that suggested by the Defendant : That the Jury might now compare the Paper with the Information : That if they did not find the Application wrong, they must find the Defen- dant guilty ; and if they did find it wrong, they must acquit him: That this was not the Time for Allevation or Aggravation, that being for future Consideration : That every Subject was under the Controul of the Law, and had a Right to expect from it Protection for his Person, his Property, and his good Name : That if any Man offended the Laws, he was amenable to them, and was not to be censured or punished but in a legal Course: That any Person libelled had a Right to bring either a civil or a criminal Pro- secution ; that in the latter, which is by infor- mation or Indictment, it is immaterial whether the Publication be false or true ; that it is no Defence to fay it is true, because it is a Breach of the Peace, and therefore criminal ; but in a civil Prosecution, it is a Defence to say the Charges in the Publication are true, because the Plaintiff there sues only for a pecuniary Satisfaction to himself ; and that this is the Distinction as to that Nature of Defence.— His Lordship said, he was afraid it was too true that few Characters in the Kingdom escaped Libels : That many were very injuriously treated — and if so, that the best Way to prevent it was by an Application to the Law, which is open to every Man : That the Liberty of the Press confined in every Man having the Power to pub- lish his Sentiments, without first applying for a Licence to any one; but if any Man published what was against Law, he did at his Peril, and was answerable for it in the same Manner as he who suffers his Hand to commit an Assault, or his Tongue to utter Blasphemy. The Jury went out at Twelve o'Clock, and at a Quarter past Nine, came out of their Room, and went to Lord Mansfield's House in Bloomsbury- Square, where they gave their Ver- dict, Guilty of printing and publishing only. It is remarkable, that Lord MansfieId, in his Charge to the Jury ventured to assert, " That " Mr. Serjeant Glynn had maintained that " TRUTH was very immaterial in any Prose- " cution for Libels;" on which the Serjeant arose, and with great Spirit declared, " That " no such Declaration had ever been made by " him ; that he had only referred to what where " denominated privait Libels, but that in all " Papers named public Libels, the Truth was " not only of the utmost Importance, but would " serve fully to justify the Party, and might be " gone into in every Case, or elfe how should " the Public be informed of what was most " material for them to know, and in what they " had an immediate interest, and ought to be " informed." The Surry Remonstrance, which was pre- sented to his Majesty Yesterday, was received with the utmost Contempt and Indignation. T. B. who, from being a Clerk to a Slop- seller, an Assistant to Lord B'rr'ngt'n in his Amours, and afterwards an Assistant to the D. of G in his Amours with Nancy Parsons, is now Prime Minister of Great Britain. All Negociations at this Instant are transacted by him ; and whenever any Man is disposed to fell himself to the Ministry, he is to be turned over to Mr. B. to settle his Price. Every Thing dis- graceful to the Crown, and injurious to the Interest of the Country, is now in the Hands of Mr. B. Letters from several Parts of Ireland say, that popular Party is so strong, and Matters are come to such a Height, that nothing but a large Handing Army, could long prevent an Insur- rection in that Kingdom. An Evening Paper says, that as soon as her Royal Highness the Princess Dowager of Wales arrived at Calais she received a very polite and pressing Invitation from his Most Christian Ma- jesty to honour him with a Visit at Versailles ; this Message was delivered by a French Noble- man of high Rank, who had been sent to Ca- lais for that Purpose by the King ; but her Highness politely declined accepting the In- vitation. It is said that all the Reports of the Cause of the Duke of Cumberland's not going to Sea with his Squadron, are void of Foundation ; the true Reason, and which is most obvious, will transpire in a few Days. On Saturday a Bargeman at Newbury, Berks, had his Throat cut from Ear to Ear, by a Wo- man with whom he cohabited. This Day was married, Barlow Trecothick, Esq; one of the Representatives of the City of London, to Miss Meredith, Sister of Sir William Meredith, Bart. This Morning early the House of Mr. Ni- cholas Bull, Linnen- Draper, in Gloucester- Row, Knightsbridge, was robbed of a great Quantity of. Shop Goods, by wrenching off two Iron Bars from the Kitchen Windows.— The Villains rummaged the Shop all over, and afterwards left two Candles burning amidst Heaps of Linnen, but providentially the House, and probably, also, the whole Row of Build- ings were preserved from being in Flames, by some Gardeners who were going to Market, who, feeing the Street- Door open, alarmed the Family, and thus saved their Lives. JUNE 6, 1770. Notice is hereby given, THAT at a Meeting of the Trustees of the Worcester Turnpikes, to be held at Hooper's Coffee- House, in High- Street, Worcester, on Wednesday the 4th Day of July next, at Ten o'Clock in the Forenoon, the Commissioners will be ready to lett the TOLLS of Powick and UPTON Turnpikes to the Best Bidder. N. B. Ordered, that every Labourer shall be paid by the Surveyor every Week; and every Team for Halling, once a Month. By Order of the TRUSTEES, W. GILES, Clerk. Worcestershire. To wit. At the General Quarter Sessions of the Peace of our Sovereign Lord the King, holden at the Guild Hall of the City of Worcester, for the County aforesaid, on Tuesday in the Week next after Easter, in the Tenth Year of the Reign of our Sovereign Lord George the Third, by the Grace of God of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, and so forth, and in the Year of our Lord One Thousand Seven Hundred and Seventy, before Hol- land Cooksey, Reginald Lygon, Esqrs. and Others, Justices of our said Lord the King, assigned to keep the Peace within the said County, and also to hear and determine divers Felonies, Trespasses, and other Offences, in the same County committed. WHEREAS many Inconveniences have arisen for Want of a proper Regu- lation of Trials of Appeals and Traverses, in this Court;— for preventing whereof, and for establish- ing a Rule therein for the future, It is ordered by this Court, That no Appeal or Traverse, where Notice of Trial hath been pre- viously given, according to the former Rules of this Court, shall be received, unless the same shall be entered with the Clerk of the Peace before the Sitting of the Court on the Tuesday Morning in every Sessions, and that every such Appeal or Tra- verse shall be tried in the Order in which the same shall be so entered, without any Preference or De- lay, unless sufficient Cause shall be shewn to the Court to the contrary ; and in such Case the Court will make such Order for the Trial of the Appeal or Traverse that shall be so put off, as shall seem just. And it is further ordered, That a List of the Appeals and Traverses, when so entered as afore- said, shall be made by the Clerk of the Peace, and forthwith fixed up in some public Place in the Court, there to remain during the whole Time of the Sessions. And whereas many Artifices are practised by Church- wardens and Overseers of the Poor in not delivering Paupers, under Orders of Removal, until so short a Time before the General Quarter Sessions, that the Church- wardens and Overseers of the Poor, of the Parish or Place to which such Pauper or Paupers are removed, cannot either give the proper Notice of Appeal, or even convene a Parish Meeting to take the Paupers' Case into Con- sideration, by Means whereof the Parishes or Places, to which the Pauper and Paupers are so removed, are under the Statute in that Cafe made and pro- vided, deprived of all Benefit of Appeal; for Re- medy of so great an Inconvenience for the future, It is ordered by this Court, That, if at any Time hereafter any Pauper or Paupers shall not be de- livered to the Church- wardens or Overseers of the Poor of any other Parish or Place, by an Order of Removal, for the Space of fourteen Days before the General Quarter Sessions of the Peace to be holden for this County next after such Delivery, and such Delivery be certified by and on the Oath of the Church- warden or Overseer of the Poor, or other Person removing such Pauper or Paupers, then, and in every such Case, it shall and may be lawful to and for the Church- wardens and Over- seers of the Poor of the Parish or Place to which such Pauper or Paupers shall be removed, to enter and lodge their Appeal against such Order or Or- ders of Removal, at any Adjournment or Adjourn- ments of the said General Quarter Sessions of the Peace at which such Appeal or Appeals ought by Law to have been made, giving due Notice to the Church- wardens or Overseers of the Parish or Place removing, of such Appeal being so entered and lodged, and of trying the same at the then next General Quarter Sessions of the Peace to be holden for this County, and such Appeal, so entered and lodged, shall be as effectual to all Intents and Pur- poses as if the same had been entered on the first Day of the next General Quarter Sessions of the Peace after the Removal of such Pauper or Paupers. And to the Intent that the above Order may be made known to the Public, It is ordered, That the Clerk of the Peace shall cause due Notice thereof to be inserted in the Worcester Journal. By the Court, SOLEY, Clerk of the Peace. MONDAY'S POST. Yesterday arrived the Mails from France. Constantinople, April 18. THE Squadron destined for the Black Sea is already sailed. It consists of two Ships of 80 Guns each, four large Galleys, besides Transports. The Squadron that is to fail for the Archipelago will consist of six Galleys, and 1 5 Ships of the Line, five of which have already reached the Dardanelles, and three the Port of Rhodes. Paris, June 8 They write from Aumale in Normandy, that on the 26th of last Month a Storm of Hail, Rain, and Thunder, happened there, which continued from Two o'Clock in the Afternoon till Eight. The Torrent that fell from the Mountains rushed with such Vi- olence into the Town that it washed up the Pavement of the Streets, threw down Bridges, several Houses and Part of the College ; eight or ten Persons lost their Lives, and near sixty Families were entirely ruined by this Calamity; the Effects of which were likewise felt in the neighbouring Country for two Leagues round, where great Numbers of Cattle were destroyed, and the Prospect of the ensuing Harvest entirely Cut off. IRELAND. Dublin, June 9. We hear from very good Authority, that a Gentleman has discovered a Method of preparing Seed, instead of manuring Land, whereby Ireland may become the Grai- nary of Europe. LONDON, Saturday, June 16. Notwithstanding it has been asserted that there is no Foundation for the Report that there will be a speedy Rupture with a certain Power, we are well assured by Letters from all Parts, that the Spaniards have actually broken thro' the Treaty of Peace, and have made some Re- prisals of Vessels belonging to Jamaica; and that they are failed with a powerful Fleet, but the Place of their Destination is not known. By Letters from Antigua we have Advice, that the Inhabitants of Jamaica had been un- der Arms and martial Law for three Months, on account of an Insurrection among the Ne- groes, and from Apprehensions of an Invasion by the Spaniards, who have twenty- six Ships of the Line in those Seas, and a great Number of regular Forces. Yesterday Sir Edward Hawke had a long private Conference with his Majesty and the Duke of Cumberland at St. James's, in which it is said the Necessity of sending a Squadron to Falkland's Islands was strongly enforced. Various Accounts having appeared in the Papers relative to the Proceedings of the Spa- niards on Falkland's Islands, we think it ne- cessary to insert the following authentic Parti- culars : — The Situation of these Islands was supposed of the greatest Consequence to the Spanish Trade to the different Parts of South America, that borders on the South Seas; and as they contain several very spacious Harbours, it was thought that the being in Possession of these Islands would be as the Key to the South Seas, from which we should be able to make continual Excursions to the Continent, and have it in our Power to intercept their Ships and distress their Trade. Mr. Byron had Or- ders to take Possession, and to examine the Harbours, which he found to be large, safe, and commodious. About this Time the French had taken Possession of the other Side of the Island, which was not known till the Year fol- lowing. This having given Umbrage to the Court of Spain, the French Minister lately ceded their Rights of Possession to the Spaniards, who sent out a sufficient Force to take Possession. Just before Captain Hunt, in the Tamer, left Port Egmont, two Spanish Frigates of thirty Guns each, having a Regiment embarked on board them, arrived there, and pretended to be surprized at finding the English, who they in- filled should evacuate it. This Captain Hunt refused, upon which the Spanish Commanding Officer landed, and took Possession in the Name of his Catholic Majesty, and allowed the Eng- lish Officer six Months' to evacuate the Island. Captain Hunt left the Favourite Sloop of War and a Store- Ship at Port Egmont, who must contrive to avoid any Disputes with the Spa- niards, as they are so greatly superior. Whe- ther this is easy to be done, we must leave to Time to discover. The Ministry wish to keep this Secret from the People ; however, it is hoped, through the Channel of every Paper, this Transaction may not be hid; and as the Public may depend on the Authenticity of this Account. It is whispered at the Court End of the Town, that the present State of our Commerce with Portugal, the Armaments of the House of Bourbon, and the Part Britain is likely to take in the Troubles between a Northern and an Eastern Empire, will require the two Houses of Parliament to make a much shorter Recess than was at first proposed. It is likewise said, that it will then be pro- posed to have some very spirited Measures adopted for humbling the Insolence of our Neighbours, which their late Insults upon the Honour of Great- Britain seem to require; and that his most faithful Majesty will be called upon in a more peremptory Manner than has hitherto been done, to adhere to the Trea- ties subsisting between the two Nations, some of which have been lately grosly infringed to the very great Prejudice of our Trade with that Kingdom. It is suspected that the present Administra- tion have some infernal Project in View against the Friends of Liberty, and that this is the true Reason of the Princess Dowager's Tour to the Continent, in order to avoid the popular Fury, on the Execution of a Plan concerted lately at Carlton- House. The Discharge of a certain Irish Duke from the Privy Council of that Kingdom, is likely to be productive of more 111 to the Ministry than they at present expect ; and it is looked upon by the Intelligent to be the most imprudent Step that could have been taken at this Time. It is under the Consideration of a certain Junto, to scratch off two or three more from the same List very quickly, and to make a Change in the Departments of that Kingdom. We hear that no one has yet accepted the Government of a neighbouring Kingdom, al- though it has been offered to several Noblemen; therefore it is expected the present Lord L—— t will continue some Time longer. It is said, that the late Earl of Cholmon- deley's Red Ribband will be given to the Right. Hon. Thomas Harley, Esq; Alderman, and Member of Parliament for the City of London. The Public are entirely divided in their Notions as to the Consequences of the singular Verdict given in Mr. Woodfall's Trial. Some think it has acquitted him; others that it must convict him. A Fortnight's Time will, how- ever, shew how the Court, in which it was given, will interpret it. It is clear that the Jury on Mr. Woodfall did not believe that the celebrated Letter of Junius to the King was a Libel, and therefore he can- not be punished for the printing and publish- ing that Paper. It is not a little extraordinary that the Ver- dicts recorded against Mr. Almon ( who was tried only for selling a Magazine, in which happened to be Junius's Letter) and Mr. Wood- fall ( the original Printer of that Letter in the Public Advertiser) are both guilty; notwith- standing the real Verdicts of the Juries were, in Mr. Almon's Case, guilty of Publication only, and in Mr. Woodfall's, guilty of printing and publishing only. What signifies Juries, if a Judge has Power to alter their Verdicts ? There is not a Doubt among a great Number of very respectable Gentlemen of the Law, that Lord Mansfield ought to have sent Mr. Woodfall's Jury back again, and continued them locked up, till they found the Defendant guilty or not guilty. We hear from France, that the Roads from Calais to Brussels were lined with People from every Quarter to fee her Royal Highness the Princess Dowager of Wales, who was received every where with the loudest Acclamations. Her Royal Highness was in an open Landau, and returned their Compliment with very great Complacency. The above Princess, on her landing at Ca- lais, said to her German Dresser, " Now I am happy to be got out of England, and the Power of all the factious English." On Wednesday a Ship arrived in the River, commanded by Capt. Scott, with returned Goods from Boston. Upon the above Ship's Arrival off Boston, the greater Part of the Mer- chants, to whom the Goods were consigned, re- fused to have them shored, because their Right of Taxation was not removed ; but some con- sented to take in their Goods, which it is sup- posed will be their Ruin, as few will deal with them. After the above Goods were housed, an Importer of English Goods was wrote on the Doors of such as had taken them in, as a Mark of Contempt. From an authentic Account received from Boston, New England, we can assure the Public, that Captain Preston has been admitted to Bail, and his Trial put off to the ill of August next. According to the last Accounts from Paris of the late dreadful Calamity occasioned by the Fireworks there, the Dead are said to amount to 500, and the Wounded to above 2000. There were among the Dead many Knights of St. Louis, and others of high Rank. The Num- ber of Women and Priests is much greater than that of others: These are extremely fond of pub- lic Spectacles, and little able to defend them- selves in a Crowd. — Eighteen Women were big with Child.— Many Thieves were found among the Dead, with Jewels, Watches, & c. in their Pockets. On one Fellow were found, Parts of the Ears of three Women, with Diamond Ear- Rings in them. Upwards of 50 Persons appear to have died of Stabs they received from Knives, Swords, & c. in the Crowd. It is said his Prussian Majesty has marched 20,000 more of his best Troops to the Assis- tance of the Russians. The Dog Act will certainly be repealed next Session. This Bill owes its Origin to Sir Tho- mas Clavering. One of the Reasons he offered in proposing such a Bill was, that a Person, whom he called a Dog- stealer, had had the Im- pudence to tell him to his Face, that he got 300l. a Year by picking up Dogs, and keeping them till a Reward was offered for finding them; and that he was able to give his Daughter as good a Fortune as his Honour. Yesterday, being the first Day of Term, the two Kennedys were brought before Lord Mans- field, in order to take their Trial for Murder the second Time, on the Appeal of the Widow Bigby ; but it appeared that the Plaintiff had pleaded Oyer on the Appeal, but not on the Bill, which must be done before the Court can bring them to Trial. This Omission made it necessary for the Prisoners to be sent back to the King's Bench till the necessary Forms are. gone through, so that the Hearing is put on sine Die, The facetious Mr. Shuter standing in Pall Mall to see the Lord Mayor, & c. go up with the Remonstrance, was asked by a Stranger the Occasion of the Procession; to which the Co- median replied, " ' Tis the Lord Mayor, Al- dermen, and Common Council, going up with the Cries of London." A young Lady of Fortune at the West End of the Town, has lately attempted to escape with a Black, who was counted very hand- some, and lived with her Uncle. It is remar- kable that she had got his Picture drawn, which was found in her Trunk. Their Intention was to escape to the Black's Native Country, Africa, where he made her believe he was a King's Son. The Black has absconded, and on Thurs- day Morning the young Lady was sent into the Country. Yesterday Morning a Horse belonging to Mr. Baxter, Butcher, in Spitalfields- Market, ran twenty- four Miles on the Rumford- Road, in one Hour and two Minutes. The Wager was for One Hundred Pounds that he did not go twenty- one Miles in one Hour; One Hun- dred Pounds that he did not go twenty- two Miles in the fame Time; and another Wager of One Hundred Pounds, he did not go twenty- three Miles in the Hour, all which he won with great Ease, and ran away with his Rider in the last Mile. An anonymous Correspondent has sent the following Extract of a Letter from a Gentle- man in Newcastle upon Tyne, dated June 7. " Last Night a most horrid Murder was com- mitted on Mr. White, an Exciseman, stationed at a Glass- house in North Shields, the Parti- culars are as follow : An Information having been laid against two notorious Smugglers, Mr. White seized several Casks of Brandy, which he was going to lodge in the Custom- house in Pursuance of his Duty ; but in his Way thither the Smugglers, attended by several Keelmen from the River, surrounded him, and having forcibly taken the Brandy, they seized on him, and threw him into a Glass Furnace, where he was instantly consumed. Two of the Villains were taken and sent to Newgate in Newcastle, under a strong Guard."

New London, April 20. A Letter from Eustatia, of the 11 th of March advises, " That at St. Kitt's, a few Days before, was discovered a grand Plan, laid by the Negroes there, which was to carry off every white Man on the Island, and take their Wives and white Women for their Wives: The chief Ringleader was a Negroe named Archy, be- longing so Mr. Rowland's Estate, at a Place called Monkey - Hill : This Archy was to be King. Mr. Phillips's Negro Man to be Gover- nor, and to be called Governor Woodley, and he was to have the Lieutenant General's Wife for his Wife ; and all the Negroes had chosen out the likeliest Women for their Wives. The Rendezvous was at Monkey - Hill, and called their Assembly the Free Mason's Meeting.— This Scheme was by Accident discovered by a which was Success to their War and Liberty, which this Lad acquainted his Friends with, who went to the Lieutenant General and As- sembly, and advised them therewith; upon which an Express was sent off to Montserrat to acquaint Gen. Woodley, upon which he came down immediately with a Man of War, and last Thursday Archy was taken up, Mr. Phillips's Negro, and many others. They all declared they had agreed to kill every white Man, and told the Day when the Plot was to be executed, which was the very next Day, and also where the Ammunition and Arms were hid; and on Friday they were found. Fifteen Negroes con- cerned in the Plot were put on board the Ship, and seventeen in the Prison. The Negro King had a Suit of superfine blue Cloth, turned up with scarlet, and trimmed with Gold Lace: Mr. Phillips's Negro, a Suit of superfine green, turned up with Buff, and trimmed with Gold; all which were taken ; and the Negroes taken up have all confessed the Fact intended, and that Friday Night they were to begin. The Signal was to be a Piece of Lead handed from one Negro to the other. Last Night the Alarm Gun was to be fired by the Inhabitants. I can't tell how the Plotters are to be treated, but I am certain many will be hanged, quartered, burnt, & c. There's an Embargo to be laid for seven Days. LONDON, Tuesday, June 19. This Morning Mr. Serjeant Glynn moved the Court of King's Bench for a new Trial, in the Cause of the , against JohnAlmon, on an Information ex officio, for only felling the London Museum, in which was reprinted a Letter of Junius to the King, on two Grounds ; the first, a Misdirection to, or Misapprehension of the Jury, appearing by the Question of Mr. Mackworth, as follows: " Whether selling in " the Shop, by a Servant, a Pamphlet, with- " out the Knowledge, Privity, or Concurrence " of the Mailer, in the Sale, or even without " a Knowledge of the Contents of the Libel " or Pamphlet so sold, be sufficient Evidence " to convict the Master? " To which Lord Mansfield made the follow- ing Answer ; " I have always understood " that Evidence of a public Sale, or Exposal " to Sale, in the Shop, by a Servant, or any " Body in the House, is prima facia Evidence " against the Master." Mr. Serj. Glynn contended, that the Question clearly conveyed an Idea that the Jury were not satisfied that any Proof at all had been made of Guilt in the Defendant; but Lord Mansfield said, the Question was untruly fla- red, for that Mr. Mackworth admitted Proof; Mr. Serjeant Glynn replied, that it did not appear from his Note, which he had shewn to others, and believed to be accurately taken ; nor did he think it could be so from what he had heard ( though he had not seen that Gen- tleman) that Mr. Mackworth had said since the Trial; Lord Mansfield replied, " he should not ask Mr. Mackworth the Question." The second Ground was the general Propo- sition, which Mr. Serjeant Glynn maintained was consistent with the Laws and Rules of Jus- tice in this and every other Country, that the mere Proof of Sale in a Shop or House, by a Servant or other Person, could not in a crimi- nal Prosecution charge or convict the Master. The Court granted a Rule to shew Cause on Monday next: So that, it is to be hoped, this apparently malicious Prosecution will be brought to a second Trial. We hear that Mr. Almon is ordered to at- tend the Court of King's Bench To- morrow, in the Forenoon, with a View to his being commanded into Custody till the last Day of Term, when, it is supposed, he will be brought up to receive Judgment for the Offence he was convicted of last Term. A Motion, we are told, will be made To- morrow relative to the Verdict given on Mr. Woodfall's Tryal. It is said that a Clue has just been disco- vered, by which the real Author of the Junius, which has occasioned a late detestable Prosecu- tion, will be soon brought to Light. Many have conjectured that this obnoxious Paper was sent to the Printer by a false Friend, and this Suspicion has been increased by what has since passed in Westminster Hall; it is however cer- tain, that this Junius was conveyed to the Printer in a different Hand from all the others, but not suspecting any Trap, he printed it as genuine. Friday the Right Hon. the Lords North and Holland, together with a great Law Officer, had a long private Conference with his Majesty at the Queen's Palace. Notwithstanding the Reports of Serjeant Naires being nominated for one of the Judges of the Common Pleas, in the Room of Sir Joseph Yates, we have Authority to assure the Public Councellor Ashurst will be the Person, who is reckoned, at present, to be one of the best common Pleaders in England. It was of- fered to Councellor Wallace, who refused it. It is confidently asserted, that the Earl of Chatham will be appointed Premier in a few Days; and the Duke of Northumberland will go to Ireland in the Room of Lord Townsend. The Ministry are so hard put to it to get Persons among their own avowed Partizans to fill Offices, that, it is said, they now begin to make Overtures to certain Noblemen and Gen- tlemen of the Opposition. It is rumoured, that an entire new Mode of Government is to take Place in the American Part of the Globe. very bad Night last Night, and still continues extremely ill at his House in Soho Square., but his Lordship has not yet been given over by his Physicians, as is asserted in some of the Papers. The young Princess was baptized in the Great Council- room at St. James's on Sunday Evening, by his Grace the Archbishop of Can- terbury, and was named Elizabeth ; the Spon- sors were her Royal Highness the Princess Amelia in Person; the Duke of Bedford, and the Duchess of Marlborough, as Proxies. It is said, that at the next Meeting of Par- liament, a Motion will be made to allow a great Lady her annual Settlement, in whatever Part of the World she shall think proper to take up Residence; which, if true, seems to forebode no Intention to return. Letters from Brussels mention her Royal Highness the Princess Dowager of Wales's Ar- rival there in perfect Health, where she pur- posed staying a few Days, and then to proceed on her Journey. A Rupture with Spain is new more confi- dently talked of than at any Time since the Conclusion of the late Peace. It is confidently asserted that the Ministry, in consequence of several Councils that have been held within these few Days, have at length determined to give up Fort Egmont to the Court of Spain. They affect to declare it is not a Place worth contending for, being so remote from any of our other Settlements, thus sacrificing not only the Honour of the Nation to an imperious Enemy, but tamely abandon- ing a Port, the Settlement of which has cost this Kingdom near Haifa Million; and which ( if they had spiritedly retained) would have been a Key to the South Sea, and, in cafe of a War, enabled us to annoy the Spaniards with the greatest Facility. A Correspondent says, that the Island of Corfica is known to abound with such prodi- gious Quantities of Timber fit for building Ships, that whatever naval Power shall possess that Island may expect in a few Years to rule the Ocean. They write from Quebec, that the Deer- skins, Furr, and Peltry Trade, from the Up- per Country of Canada, will be very consider- ably more this Year than in any former one. Letters from Vienna report, that a Treaty of Accommodation between the Empress of Russia and the Ottoman Porte, under the Me- diation of the Imperial Court of Vienna, is already far advanced. The Earl of Lincoln East Indiaman, Capt. Hardwick, from China, and the Speaker, Capt. Scott, from Bombay, are arrived in the Downs. By Letters from Lisbon we learn, that his Portuguese Majesty has ordered the Duty on Leaf- Tobacco from America to be taken off; an Exemption which occasions some Specula- tion, as at the Time that every possible Ob- struction is thrown in the Way of the British Commerce, the greatest Encouragement is given to that of the refractory Colonies. We can assure the Public, from good Au- thority, that, at a Meeting of a great Number of Merchants lately at Philadelphia, they came to a Resolution to receive all Goods that may be imported at that Place, and likewise to ex- port ; and that it is thought the Example will be followed at Boston and other Places. The following Extract from the Massachuset's Gazette of May 17, containing Hart of the In- stuctions of the Town of Boston to their Repre- sentatives, it is imagined will not be unaccept- able to our Readers. To the Hon. James Bowdoin, Esq; the Hon. Thomas Cushing, Esq; Mr. Samuel Adams, and the Hon. John Hancock, Esq; GENTLEMEN, THE Town of Boston, by their late Choice of you to represent them in the ensuing General Court, have given strong Proof of their Confi- dence in your Abilities and Integrity— For no Period, since the perilous Times of our venera- ble Fathers, has worn a more gloomy and alarm- ing Aspect. Unwarrantable and arbitrary Ex- actions made upon the People, Trade expiring, Grievances, Murmurs, and Discontents, con- vulsing every Part of the British Empire, fore- bode a Day of Trial, in which, under God, nothing but stern Virtue and inflexible Forti- tude can save us from a rapacious and misera ble Destruction. A Series of Occurrences, many recent Events, " and especially the late " Journals of the House of Lords, afford good " Reason to believe, that a deep- laid and des- " perate Plan of imperial Despotism has been " laid, and partly executed, for the Extinction " of all Civil Liberty: " — And from a gra- dual Sapping the grand Foundation, from a subtle undermining the main Pillars, breaking the strong Bulwarks, destroying the principal Ramparts and Battlements, the august and once revered Fortress of English Freedom — that ad- mirable Work of Ages- the BRITISH CON- STITUTION- seems just tottering into fatal and inevitable Ruin. The dreadful Catastrophe threatens universal Havock, and presents an awful Warning to hazard all, if, peradventure, we, in these distant Confines of the Earth, may prevent being totally overwhelmed and buried under the Ruins of our most established Rights. For many Years past, we have, with Sorrow, beheld the approaching Conflict; various have been the Causes, which pressed on this decisive Period; and every Thing now conspires to prompt a full Exertion of our utmost Vigilance, Wisdom, and Firmness. — And as the Exigen- cies of the Times require, not only the refined Abilities of true Policy, but the more martial Gentlemen, in giving you our Suffrages at this Election, we have devolved upon you a most important Trust; to discharge which, we doubt not, you will summmon up the whole united Faculties of Mind and Body. The despicable Situation of our Provincial Militia, you will make the Object of your pe- culiar Attention ; and as it is apparent from what putrid Source this Decline of Military Emulation hath flowed, we press, that such animated Steps may be taken, as shall spee- dily remove this just Reproach from the Land. We have, for a long Time beheld, with Grief and Astonishment, the unwarrantable Practice of Ministerial Instructions to the Commanders in Chief of this Province. It is high Time, Gentlemen, for this Matter to be searched into and remedied. Such an enormous Stretch of Power, if much longer unchecked, will eventually annihilate the Essentials of all Civil Liberty. It is re- pugnant to the very first Principles of true Government ( which was alone instituted to the Good of the Governed) that a remore Power, not only much disconnected, but often dif- rent in Interest, should undertake, at Pleasure, to controul, nay command, in Affairs, of the last Moment, for the Benefit and Relief of the People ; — a Power, three thousand transmarine Miles distant, not only ignorant of our true Welfare; but, if perchance discovered, in- terested to oppose it; not only attempting to oppress, but actually oppressing; — that such a Power should be allowed, wantonly, to proscribe Patricians and Plebeians: — At Will to fix the Residence of our Parliament, to order that Parliament when, and how to proceed, and where to retire; at one Time to forbid the best Improvement of our own Produce; at another Time, effectually to force us to purchase foreign Merchandize; again, as it were, Sword in Hand, to demand our Property; and, anon, to forbid our own Disposal of a certain Part of it: — These are Doctrines and political Sole- cisms, which may root and spring up under the Meridian of modern Rome; but we trust in God, will not flourish in the Soil and Climate of British America. We, therefore, strictly, charge you, not to grant any Supplies to the Instruments 0f Government, if through their De- fect or Misapplication, the great Ends, for which we support and obey our Rulers, are not accomplished. We remind you, that the further Nations re- ceive and give Way to the gigantic Strides of any powerful Despot, the more rapidly will the Fiend advance to spread wide Desolation ; and then, should an Attempt be made to stay his ravaging Progress—" the Dogs of War let loose and hot for Blood, rush on to Waste and Havock." Obst a Principiis is the Maxim to be held in View. It is now no Time to halt be- tween two Opinions: The Demands of Fraud, Violence, and Usurpation, are insatiable. It is therefore no Season to Hand listening to sub- tle Allurements, deceitful Cajolings, or for- midable Threatenings. We therefore enjoin you, at all Hazards, to deport ( as we rely your own Hearts will Stimulate) like the faithful Representatives of a free- born, awakened and determined People , who being impregnated with the Spirit of Liberty in Conception, and nurtured in Principles of Freedom from their Infancy, are resolved to breathe the same ce- lestial AEther, till summoned to resign the hea- venly Flame by that omnipotent God who gave it.

The following remarkable Lines have lately pre- sented themselves. OLD MAG. ' Tis said the Parliament will open early in January— with a grand Scene of the Palace of Pluto. To- day several Petitions will be presented to the C—— n — To- morrow All in the Wrong, by Command of their M s.

SIR, WHEN I read those profuse Encomiums which ministerial Writers lavish upon the two last Sessions of the present Parliament, I am tempted to think I must be a Stranger to what has past in this Kingdom, and that they have been the Authors of some signal Benefits which Time has not yet disclosed; — for what Monsters overcome, Debts discharged, new Avenues of Trade opened, public Credit re- stored, national Evils averted, and Enemies subdued ? am I to adore these Demi- gods and Heroes? What Light have these Satellites of Jove reflected upon our political System. What Pains have been taken to restore the Confidence of our Colonies, to assert our Trade, to repel the insults of our Enemies, to retrench all un- necessary Places and Pensions, to relieve the Complaints of Ireland, and put our Affairs in the Indies on a respectable Footing Can any but a Madman assert, that the least Attention has been paid to the main Object of Govern- ment; while the full Omnipotence of the State has been exerted to crush a Prisoner in the King's- Bench; as if the Nation had no other Concern, but to exclude the County of Mid- dlesex from a Representative in Parliament. What is this but heaving the Ocean to wast a Feather, or to drown a Flie ? However, to do Justice to Administration, this Point has been prosecuted with unparalleled Vigour and Activity. And if the Sacrifice of one Individual had contented their Rage, the Community would not have been alarmed; but in the Height of their Fury, they have wounded the whole elective Body, and given a Blow to the Constitution, which it never re- ceived under the Stuart Line; and with another such Victory, we shall be irretrievably undone. After this we are insulted with the Obligations we are under to the Lenity and Gentleness of a Trojan- like Sovereign, for not seizing th present Opportunity to destroy the Liberties of the People, and make himself absolute. In the Name of God what do you mean ? Is there any Thing more to be dreaded with the two Houses of Parliament? The Project of dispen- sing Power was a filly, blundering Trick, to this new and plausible Manoeuvre of Politics. We are now made Accomplices in our own Ruin; and the two Branches of the Legislature, which were formerly Barriers against the Crown, are now the instruments of executing all its dangerous Designs. How would the Corrupters of ancient Days be astonished to fee their Schemes brought to such Maturity and Perfection ? That Weapon which they made Use of against the known Enemies of the State, is now directed against the Constitution itself. And as they have found it of successful, their Folly must be greater than their Villainy, not to try it to the utmost. What Situation can be of deplorable, as that where the Form of Government is preserved, and the Spirit is an- nihilated ? If the Successors of Julius Caesar had been content with enslaving the Roman Em- pire, and practising the worst of Cruelties, it would have been tolerable, but to insult them with a Senate, and a Succession of Tribunes and Consuls, was the severest Ridicule and Ag- gravation of their Wretchedness. To be sub- dued by a Prince of Magnanimity affords Con- solation; to be betrayed by car Friends, our Constituents, our Representatives, is as execra- ble as it is remediless; and yet we are to be thankful that the Sovereign does not comply with our Petitions, in order to extend his own Prerogative. If a King of England can desire any Thing more than a Bench of Judges who will sanc- tify his Vengeance; an Army who will massa- cre his Subjects; a Clergy who will preach up Passive Obedience; a House of Commons who will supply his Profusion without Enquiry, and demand no Security but his Honour, for the immense Sums they bestow; and a House of Lords, who know their Distance too well to interpose upon the moil alarming occasions; — if, I say, he desires more than this, he must be destitute of Sense and Policy; for if he un- derstands his Strength, he differs only in a few Ceremonies from the most despotic Tyrant that ever existed. Be thankful! with what greater Propriety might I say, should the base and pensioned Traitors of their Country, congra- tulate themselves that the People of England are not yet arrived to that Degree of Provoca- tion, as to cause them to unite for their com- mon Safety, and to make Use of those Powers which the Laws of Justice and Nature have given them to provide for their Liberty and Welfare. What they will do, I cannot tell; but if the Indignities they have lately suf- fered go unpunished, I shall only say " Would to Heaven there was any Thing more to lose. " HELVIDIUS.
