Berrow's Worcester Journal. THURSDAY, September 13, 1770. No. 3189. 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. New York, July 26. A Considerable Number of Inha- bitants met Yesterday Evening at Hamden- Hall, where a Pro- test against the Conduct of those who have broke the Non- importation Agreement ( whereby they have destroyed the Union of the Colonies so essential for the Preservation of their Liberties) was read, unanimously agreed to, and signed by a con- siderable Number. The following is an Extract of a Letter from Virginia to a Gentleman here, dated July 2: " I am sorry to find the noble Cause of America likely to be betrayed by its pretended Friends with you ; can it be possible that Men, who have soared so high as to attract the Admiration and Esteem of all the virtuous Part of Mankind, should at once sink so low as to become the Contempt and Derision of every Individual! But I hope it is not possible, that for a Mess of Pottage you should fell your invaluable Liber- ties, and entail the Curse of Slavery upon your Descendants for ever, when Perseverance but for a little longer, secures the Prize, and makes your Names immortal. " We are all Patriots here, and will hold no Intercourse or Connection with you if you basely desert the Cause." SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, Sept. 1. They write from Gal- ston, that Charles Laing, Paper- maker there, has lately invented a Machine which cuts fif- teen Pounds of Rags and Ropes in two Mi- nutes, and is likely to be attended with great Advantage to the Paper Manufactory, as it will cut more Rags and Ropes in one Day than eight Men are fit to do, which will be a con- siderable Saving in the Article of Wages, and is performed by the same Wheel that drives the Paper Mill, feeds itself, and stops of itself when the Quantity is cut out, until again sup- plied with more Rags or Ropes. COUNTRY NEWS. Canterbury, Sept. 4. On Friday Morning one of the Powder Mills, at Dore, near Fever- sham, belonging to Mr. Gruebar, was blown up. One Man and a Horse were killed, and two other Men were very much hurt; one of the Workmen, with amazing Courage, went into an adjoining Magazine, and rolled out a Barrel of Gunpowder; after which the whole Quantity, consisting of thirty Barrels, were saved, and the terrible Consequences therefrom prevented. LONDON, Thursday, September 6. We hear the Parliament will certainly meet on the 9th of November next. The Misfortune of burning down the Store- houses at Portsmouth is to be fully mentioned in a Speech, and parliamentary Aid required to make good the Loss. We hear one of the favourite Points of the Minority the ensuing Sessions, will be to exert their most strenuous Endeavours to procure an Act of Parliament to keep in constant Pay thirty thousand Seamen, and to reduce the present Number of Land Forces on the British Esta- blishment. Lord Egmont will very shortly take a princi- pal Lead in the Administration. They write from Ireland, that several of the military Gentlemen there are determined to resign, in Consequence of the late Promotion of Colonel L l. Merit ( says a Correspondent) has been so conspicuous in our young Monarch's Reign that he has already created no less than three Dukes, one Marquis, twenty- two Earls, eigh- teen Viscounts, one Countess, one Viscountess, forty Barons, four Baronesses, and fifty- four Baronets.— What an amazing Group of Wor- thies to be discovered in so short a Period as ten Years! amongst which is the Defaulter of Millions; the amiable Papa of the Intruder for the County of Middlesex ; a Bristol Represen- tative; an American Governor; & c. & c. & c. How have Titles and Honours been dis- graced and rendered contemptible of late Years, by being conferred on Wretches, who, instead of the Coronet, have richly deserved either the Ax or an Halter. The Courtiers flatter themselves, that the Resignation of the Secretary to the Supporters of the Bill of Rights, is only a Prelude to the speedy Dissolution of that Society. Mr. Miller, the Printer, who was lately tried for a Libel and acquitted, intends to com- mence a Prosecution against his Majesty's At- torney General the Beginning of next Term. Not that he is influenced by the least Resent- ment against that Gentleman, but that he thinks proceeding in the above Manner an Act of Justice he owes to his Country. Letters received by a Gentleman in the City from the Island of Jamaica, say, that Place is now in a proper State of Defence, and perfectly secure against any sudden Surprise. Yesterday an Express arrived at the Secretary of States Office from Col. Johnson, Lieutenant- Governor of Minorca, which was immediately communicated to his Majesty. We hear that some extraordinary Advices have been lately received from the Lords of the Regency of the Electorate of Hanover. Fresh Orders are received from Germany for buying up a Number of Draft and Saddle Horses, to remount the Prussian Cavalry. They write from Berlin, by the last Dutch Mail, that the King of Prussia seems to be greatly embarrassed, on Account of the present Situa- tion of Affairs; he knows the enterprising Genius of the Empress of Russia, and therefore looks upon her with suspicious Eye; and is by some Means determined to stop her in her full Career, well knowing, that if she should finish the War as successfully as she has begun it, she may prove to him a very troublesome Neigh- bour. It is certain, by the great Preparations that Monarch is making, he intends soon to strike some important Stroke. The Russian Squadron mentioned in the Papers to be daily expected at Portsmouth, is the same which arrived at Elfineur, in Den- mark, the 21st of July, and consists of no more than three Ships of War, two of them mounting 64, and the other 56 Guns. They have under Convoy fourteen large English Transport Ships, containing vast Quantities of Ammunition, and 2500 Soldiers, who are to serve to recruit their Ships now in the Morea. We are assured that the Bread used by the Sailors on board the Russian Men of War is made of Rye Meal and Treacle, of a very dark- brown Colour, and baked as hard as any Biscuit, but of such a sour disagreeable Fla- vour, that the English Sailors are greatly dis- satisfied with it. The French Government has laid such a heavy Duty on all English Goods imported at Corsica, that it almost amounts to a Prohibition, as our Merchants on that Account are obliged to fell so dear, that few of the Inhabitants can afford to purchase. Letters from Placentia, in Italy, dated Aug. 8, mention, that they had received from the Grand Duke, at Parma, a Rescript, addressed to all the Religious and Heads of Convents, & c. wherein his Serene Highness ordains that there shall be transmitted to the Royal and Su- preme Tribunal, within the Term of fifteen Days, the actual State of the Income and Ex- pense of every religious House in that Duchy, mentioning every Particular by the Year, how much each House expends in Provisions, the Quality and Quantity, their several Debts, the Produce of their Lands, the Quantity of Beasts, Corn, Wine, Wood, & c. together with an ex- act Account of each House's Consumption of the last- mentioned Articles. They are further ordered that, on the Death of every Religious, Notice shall be given to the above Tribunal, in order for them to set their Seal on what Mo- ney, Moveables & c. may be left therein at their Decease. And lastly, that they are to give in a Lift of all foreign Religious in their respective Houses, with the Time they have been resident there. What is to follow from the above they do not know, but the Priests are in the greatest Anxiety since receiving the said Order. Extract of a Letter from Chatham, August 31. " Last Wednesday Morning several Car- tridges of Powder were found near the Hemp- House in this Yard, which makes us apprehend that they were put there with a Design to set the Yard on Fire; however, every possible Care is taken to prevent it. " The Sailmakers here work three Quarters of a Day extra in making Sails; the Ropema- kers work two Days for one, in making Cables; and the Riggers work two Tides a Day, in making rigging ; all at present for the Supply of Portsmouth Yard; besides these we are daily fending a Number of other Stores thither. The Commissioners of the Navy are daily ex- pected down, to inspect the Yard, & c. " The following Ships are now building: Prince George, of 90 Guns; Formidable of 90 ; Stirling Castle of 64 ; and a Ship of 44, but not yet named. The Medway, of 60 Guns, is receiving a thorough Repair." As America and the West- Indies want white Women so much, it is Pity every Prostitute is not sent there after a third Commitment to Bridewell or any other Prison. The Archbishop of Canterbury has appointed the Rev. Thomas Pennington, D. D. Rector of Tunstall, one of the Six Preachers in Can- terbury Cathedral, in the room of the Rev. Dr. Carter, resigned. Sir Brook Bridges, Bart, has presented the Rev. Mr. Delangle, of Walmer in Kent, to the Rectories of Danbury and Woodham- Fer- rers in Essex, worth 340l. per Annum, in the room of the Rev. Mr. Petvin, deceased. The following is the true State of the Affair between a noble Lord and his Valet, as lately hinted to have happened at Naples. Lord B. coming unexpectedly into his Apartments, surprized his Valet in writing, and suspecting some of his Irregularities had been discovered to his Family through this Man's Means, he haughtily insisted on seeing the Letter. It was in vain the poor Fellow on his Knees pleaded it was a private Letter of Moment to his own Relations; the Lord continued resolute in his Demand, and struck his Man, who immedi- ately tore the Letter; on which his Lordship courageously drew on the unarmed Victim. The first Pass the Sword entered a little above the Right Eye, and divided the frontal Mus- cles quite across the Forehead; the second Wound was ever the Right Pap, slant- ways towards the Breast; the third was through the Inside of the Thigh, when the poor Fellow fell. . The Effusion of Blood alarmed his Lord- ship, who immediately got into his Post- chaise, which happened to be in Readiness. His Con- fusion, coming down with his Sword drawn, and hasty Orders to Servants, giving strong Suspicions, some of the Household ran up the Stairs, when they found his Lordship had, not- withstanding his Fright, locked the Door, which was burst open, and the poor Fellow discovered weltering in his Blood. Pursuit, as soon as the proper Officers of Justice were ac- quainted with the Affair, was made, but in vain ; they could never come up with him, though frequently very near him. It's thought the wounded Valet must die. On Sunday a Lord, famous for a Frolic with a certain Doctor, a small Time prior to his Marriage with a beautiful young Lady, arrived in Town, to the great Joy of his Family, free from the apprehended Consequences of a pas- sionate Affair lately transacted at Naples. The Fracas which lately happened at York is finally adjusted, through the Interposition of two noble Lords of the Turf, who have ad- judged the passionate Count to pay the Lady the Sum of Five Hundred Pounds, which she has very generously paid in to the Corporation of that City for charitable Uses. A Letter from York mentions, that a Noble- man, at the late Races there, offered to give 3000 Guineas for the Horse Eclipse, which the Owner refused. Thursday se'nnight a Woman, meanly dres- sed, found her Way up the Back- Stairs to the Queen's private Apartments, and entered the Room where her Majesty was with the Duchess of Ancaster: The Woman looked at the Ladies with Unconcern, and took a Survey of the Room with great Composure. Her Majesty and the Duchess were too much surprised to speak or move for some Time; at last the Dutchess rung the Bell, which brought in the Page in waiting, who with much Difficulty got the Intruder down Stairs. Last Monday Afternoon an over- drove Ox ran through Cloth- Fair, and pursued a Gen- tleman so close, that he was obliged to take Shelter in the one- pair of Stairs Room of a Corner House in Bartholomew- Close ; the Ox came so quick after him that the Door could not be shut, but, by the Help of the Chairs and Tables, he kept him at Bay some Time, when, casting his Eyes round the Room, he ran furiously at another Gentleman, and gored him in so terrible a Manner that his Recovery is doubtful. Mr. Mahon, who lately eloped with and married the Hon. Miss Tilson, has lately re- ceived the Lady's Fortune, amounting to very near Ten Thousand Pounds. It is said Admiral Elphinstone is already esteemed worth 1oo, oool. most of which he has acquired since his being in the Russian Service. On Tuesday last the Reverend Dr. Cawley, Rector of Stepney, Middlesex, was chosen Principal of Brasenose College, Oxford, in the room of the late Reverend Mr. Gywnn.

WHEREAS, on Monday the 20th Day of August last, ( at the Red Lion, in Wire- Piddle, near Pershore, in the County of Worcester) I, ROBERT BUBb, Plaisterer, did, very unjustly, and without any Kind of Reason or Foundation whatsoever, falsely and maliciously say, speak, and publish divers false, scandalous, and defamatory Words of and concerning JOSEPH BOSSWARD, of Wick, near Pershore aforesaid, Brick- maker, who has since, very justly, com- menced a Prosecution against me for the same, but hath, out of his great Lenity, agreed to stop pro- ceeding, and forgive me, on my asking his Pardon, and acknowledging what I did say of him was un- just and false ; NOW, I, the said Robert Bubb, do hereby accordingly ask the said Joseph Boss- ward's Pardon for what I have so said and spoke of him ; and acknowledge that the same was and is utterly false and untrue, and that I had no Kind of Reason or Foundation whatsoever for saying or speaking what I did. ROBERT BUBB. MONDAY'S POST. Arrived a Mail from HOLLAND. Limbourg, August 19. THIS Moment we received the im- portant News that the Khan of the Tartars, who is still at the Head of 60,000 Men, is surrounded and pressed in such a Manner by the Russians, that he has already wrote to the Ge- neral in Chief, Count Romanzow, that it he will permit him to retire in Liberty with all his Men, he promises not to bear Arms against Russia any more during the present War. The Russian General has sent him an Answer, that he would grant his Request only on Condition of his doing Homage to her Majesty the Em- press of all the Russians. COUNTRY NEWS. Gloucester, September 10. At our Assizes last Week, Wm. Clutterbuck, convicted of Horse stealing, received Sentence of Death, but was afterwards reprieved ; James Taylor, for steal- ing Cloth, and Eliz. Toms, for stealing Wear- ing Apparel, to be transported for seven Years; Samuel Niblett, for stealing Money, was burnt in the Hand. Two whipt, six acquitted. At our Assizes was tried before Mr. Justice Blackstone, and a special Jury, a Cause wherein a young Baronet of this County was Plaintiff, and an Attorney Defendant: The Action was brought for ( what at present is too common) Crim. Con. with the Plaintiff's Lady. — The Counsel for the Plaintiff were Messrs. Skinner and Bearcroft. In the Course of the Cause it appeared, that the Plaintiff, in the Year 1765, at an Age when he could scarcely be supposed to make a proper Choice, was decoyed by the Lady, her Father, and Brother, to make a Trip to Scotland, where they were married : After this they lived together ' till about the Middle of the Summer 1768, when, without any Cause of Offence given, she thought fit to leave her Husband, and to associate with the Defendant, with whom she has lived ever since, regardless of her own Character, and a Scandal to the Family into which she was married. — After a Hearing of about two Hours ( the Proofs of Guilt being too evident to admit of any De- fence) the Jury gave a Verdict of 500l. Damages for the Plaintiff. - His Lordship recommended it to the Jury to give as high Damages as the Circumstances of the Defendant would bear, so that be might not rot in a Jail; and the Jury accordingly gave the above Verdict, as they apprehended the Defendant was not able to pay more.---- A few Days before the Trial, the De- fendant and the Lady both disappeared; and it is thought by the Baronet and his Friends, that their Journey is designed to be productive of either a supposititious or spurious Heir to their Family, as he himself has had no private Con- versation with her for two Years past. The Baronet was at Age in April last. On Monday last, at Monmouth Assizes, was tried before Mr. Justice Blackstone, a Cause wherein Mary Davies, who formerly was a Ser- vant at the Cranes in Chepstow, was Plaintiff, and one Morgan, a Tallow- Chandler, Defen- dant: The Action was brought for the Breach of a Contract of Marriage. A Verdict was given for the Plaintiff with 600l. Damages. It is remarkable that there was not one Pri- soner in the County Gaol at Monmouth, and only two Persons, who were out upon Bail, tried at the Crown Bar for Felony; both of whom were acquitted. Stratford- upon- Avon, September 7. Yesterday, being the Anniversary of Shakespear's Jubilee, was celebrated here with uncommon Festivity and Rejoicings. At Day- break, an incessant Firing of Cannon proclaimed the happy Morn- ing to the whole Country around. Shake- spear's Statue, given by Mr. Garrick, was crowned with Laurel: The Streets of the Town were filled with joyful Countenances: The Jubilee Medals and Favours were worn by both Sexes in Honour of the Day : The Ladies were serenaded with the Jubilee Songs: The Ringing of Bells, and the cheerful Shouts and Acclamations of the People resounded along the Banks of the Avon. The Gentlemen and principal Inhabitants met at Shakespear's Hall, where, ( after partaking of an elegant Enter- tainment provided by the Corporation) the cheerful Glasses communicated a more poig- nant Zest from the Propriety of the Songs ac- companying them, and the setting Sun left the Votaries of Apollo and Bacchus contending for Victory. Several suitable Toasts were drank, each announced to the Public by the Jubilee Cannon; and in the Intervals, by several Vol- lies of Fire of Small Arms, the Troops in Town being drawn up before Shakespear's Hall for that Purpose. LONDON, Saturday, Sept 8. We hear that the Ministry are so desirous of going through a great deal of Business next Sessions, with Dispatch, that little or no Ar- gument will be used after opening any Mo- tion, but carry it to a Division at once. L— d R , it seems, has declared that he does not covet to be in Power himself, but to have such as are possessed of more Abilities and Uprightness than the present Set: In short, to have once more a good Administration. The Reason of the D— of G ' s sud- den public Quittal of Office and Employment last Winter will be fully explained, we believe, in the Course of the ensuing Session ; as also the Reasons for L— d N - th's great Assiduity to obtain a Coalition of Parties. One Reason amongst many others, why a principal Officer in the Law is determined to continue in Office longer, is, because he wants to establish, before his Recess, his two favou- rite Positions of ex official Informations, and be Incapacity of Jurors in judging of Lav. , which at present, from some late Determinations, are in great Danger of being overturned, not- withstanding his warmest Assistance. Lord N h has asserted, it is said, that lie could be able, and would undertake, to pay off ten Millions of the national Debt by the Year 1774, provided he is permitted to hold a considerable Direction in the Department of Finance during that Period ; and further also lay down the Mode of triennially discharging ten Millions, in all Times of Peace, till the whole is satisfied and paid off; when the said Savings might, in future, be appropriated to other great national Purposes. A very important Resignation is spoken of, in Consequence of the Party being ( as he al- leges) rather imperiously thwarted by a Great Personage at a late C- b t C l. L- dC m has got acquainted with some Transaction of the present Ministry's, which, in a proper Place, he intends to make public and which, from the loose Hints that have been dropped concerning it, is supposed will be a Matter of public Astonishment. It is said that Measures are now on the Carpet to restore the general Tranquility of Ireland. The Secretary to the Governor of a neigh- bouring Kingdom will shortly, we hear, be re- called to an Office here ; and another Person placed in his present Appointment. We are assured that a Bill will be brought into Parliament next Sessions, for regulating and reducing the Price of Candles, & c. It is talked of, that public Thanks, by Au- thority, will be returned to the Merchants of New York, for their Patriotism. A Lilliputian Regiment, it is said, will be raised for the Prince of Wales, as soon as his Household is established, to learn him more perfectly the Military Science. It is to be composed of the Sons of Noblemen and Gen- tlemen under his own Age, in like Manner as was, done for the late Duke of Cumber- land in the early Part of his Life. An ingenious Gentleman has lately found out a Method of distilling a Spirit from Pota- toes, equal to any made of our Malt Spirits. If this Scheme takes Place, it will be the Means of saving many Thousand Quarters of Grain. We are informed that a Body of reputable Men having taken into Consideration the many ill Effects of the present Scarcity of Silver and Copper Coin, and of the Extortions of some Persons who have exacted great Premiums for procuring Change for Gold, they have resolved to prosecute all such Offenders for the future, on the Statute of the 6th and 7th of William the Third; in which is the following Clause: " If any Person whatsoever shall, at any one Time or Payment, fell any Silver Money of the Coin of this Kingdom for more in Tale, Profit, or Advantage, than the same was coined for, and ought by Law to go for, shall forfeit the sum of Ten Pounds for every Twenty Shil- lings that shall be sold or paid, and so in Pro- portion for any greater or lesser Sum, one Moiety thereof to his Majesty, and the other Moiety to the Person who shall sue or inform for the same; to be recovered, with Costs of Suit, by Action of Debt, Bill, Plaint, or Informa- tion, in his Majesty's Court of King's Bench.'' Lady H. V. and Miss V. ( Mother and Sister of the unfortunate Lady G.) were the other Night at Richmond Assembly, and on their Appearance, were very mortifyingly unnoticed by the Company ; but the Prince of Mecklen- berg very politely and humanely expressed his Disapprobation of this Step, by paying his particular Respects to the two Ladies, offering his Hand to, and dancing a Minuet with Miss V. and afterwards being her Partner in the Country Dances the whole Night.— The Car- riage of the World to the young Lady is cer- tainly what she does not merit. That she acted somewhat indiscreetly, in a late Affair, is cer- tain ; but surely the Fears expressed of her by the Lovers themselves, and her own Letter to her Sister as soon as she discovered Reason to be suspicious of her Sister's Honour, must ex- onerate her from every Charge of intentional Criminality. An Anecdote that may be depended upon.— A great Personage, whose Amour with a par- ticular Lady has long ( indeed too long) been the Subject of public Conversation, went lately with a Party of Ladies ( Miss B. Miss S. and two others) from Southampton to the Isle of j Wight. The Inn they put up at was the Sign of the Sun ; but it not being able to furnish Lodging for the whole Party, and there being no other Public House that could, one of the Great Person's Train waited upon Gentlemen of Fortune who has a Seat there, to beg that he would accommodate, for a single Night, H. R. H. and his Suite.—" Sir ( said the Gentleman) if there is not Room for you all at the Sun, pray go and find a Lodging at the Moon; for the Reputation of my Wife and Daughter is too dear to me to admit of my having the Honour of entertaining the Great Person in my House, when they are in it." We hear from Stone and Appledore in Kent, that the Mills have been employed Night and Day for this Week past, in order to prepare Flour from the Wheat of this Year's Harvest: And last Saturday a Miller at Tenterden, sold several Sacks of the same for 6s. a Bushel, Win- chester Measure. A private Letter from the Hague that the French Court are endeavouring to make the Emperor of Germany join the Turks against the Russians; and that in order the more effectually to induce him to do this, the French Minister, at Constantinople, has Instructions to use his utmost Endeavours to prevail on the Grand Signior to cede to the Emperor the Provinces bordering upon Hun- gary, which formerly belonged to Austria. The last Letters from Jamaica mention, that the British Logwood Trade at Campeachy had been for some Time carried on with great Briskness, the Spanish Governor of Jucatan obliging all runaway Slaves belonging to the English to be delivered up to their Masters. Yesterday Se'nnight Mr. Rainsforth, High Constable of Westminster, attended by Mr. Flanagan, Constable, were ordered to fee the State of St. James's Park, by virtue of some fresh Regulations made that Day, with regard to removing the many Nuisances, and putting a Stop to the Indecencies committed there, in order to make Report of the same to the Ma- gistrates in Bow- Street. In consequence of which, the above- mentioned Peace Officer made a general Search throughout the Park, and, on finishing their Inspection, were let through the Iron Gate at the Horse- Guards; and as soon as they had got into the Street, they took up a very disorderly Woman, just as the Clock had struck Twelve, when the Patrole was relieving. The Woman slipped from Mr. Flanagan and ran through the Gate to the Centinel, one of the First Troop of Horse Grenadier Guards.— Mr. Flanagan pursued the Woman to take her again into Custody, but was obstructed by the Centinel, behind whom she had got for Refuge: Mr. Rainsforth very civilly expostulated with the Soldier, but in vain, on which he insisted on feeing the Commanding Officer then on Duty, but was refused, though both he and Mr. Flanagan informed him they were Peace Officers; a Corporal, on this, immediately came up, and took them both into Custody: The High Constable told the Corporal, that he thought it very extraordinary that a Centinel should dare to rescue a Prisoner from them, and assured him, that the Officer should be made acquainted with his Behaviour, and repeatedly desired he might be called; the Corporal re- plied, That he was the Commanding Officer, and that they should not go away before Nine or Ten o'Clock in the Morning, and, abruptly leaving them, shut himself in his Bed; after which, they saw no Person till near Eight o'Clock, remaining all the while in the Guard- Room. Between Seven and Eight o'Clock Mr. Rainsforth went to the Serjeant's Apartment, and desired him to acquaint the Commanding Officer of his being confined, and that he was High Constable of Westminster. The Serjeant got up, and went to consult with the Corporal, where he remained for a few Minutes, and then told Mr. Rainsforth that he could not possibly think of disturbing the Officer on any Account, but that they must remain where they were. — Soon after Eight o'Clock, Mr. Foss, Quarter Master of the Life Guards, came in, and know- ing Mr. Rainsforth, told him he was greatly concerned at the scandalous Treatment they had met with, and invited them both to his Room, where a genteel Breakfast was provided; after partaking of which they had an Order to go be- fore the Commanding Officer, who severely reprimanded the Corporal and Centinel for their Behaviour, in not assisting the Civil Power, instead of obstructing it, and immediately gave Mr. Rainsforth both their Names, declaring he would not in the least interpose in their Behalf, but wished they might be punished as they de- served, and then politely discharged the High Constable and Mr. Flanagan from their Con- finement, it being then a Quarter past Ten o'Clock.— Mr. Rainsforth, in his Way Home, met Sir John Fielding going to Brompton, made him acquainted with his Confinement, and de- sired his Advice. Sir John desired him to get into his Carriage and go with him, as he was determined to support him in bringing the De- linquents to justice. On their Arrival at Bromp- ton he granted Mr. Rainsforth a Warrant, and likewise wrote to the Commanding Officer to deliver the Men up, which was readily complied with. They were taken in a Coach to Bromp- ton, and examined by Sir John, who committed them both to Tothill- Fields Bridewell, where they now are. They will be tried by the Civil Magistracy; and the Serjeant, who refused to call the Commanding Officer, was on Thurs- day tried by a Court Martial, and found guilty of Neglect of Duty in not calling the Com- manding Officer, and broke. We hear from York, that fifty Noblemen and Gentlemen have agreed with Count Kelly, to give him Fifty Pounds each per Year, for three Years certain, on Condition that they have each one Mare covered by his Horse Eclipse, and at the End of that Term, to remain the present Proprietor's Property.

WHEREAS, in the Month of March last, I was induced, from Preju- dice founded on a Misrepresentation of Person and Facts, to publish a Pamphlet or Libel, inti- tuled, The Life and Character of a common Barretor therein traducing the, Character of the Gentleman particularly pointed at, as well as the Character of many other Persons; and, as a Publication that Kind, from the evil Tendency it has the Minds of many towards the Persons it intended to affect, can scarce ever be repaired, it demands all the Satisfaction which is in the Power of the Parties so transgressing to make; and having, since the Publication, fully enquired in the Character of the Gentlemen mentioned meant by such Pamphlet, and the Transaction therein recited, the Concern which has resulted me therefrom obliges me to declare, That, at the Time of such my Publication, I knew not many of the Persons whose Names are inserted in the Pamphlet; those whom I knew, were wholly deserving of the Insolence offered them there and what I so publicly offered was from an impro- per Credit given to Misrepresentations of bad malicious Men: And I do sincerely believe Charge and Accusations therein to be utterly and groundless; and I am the rather induced. Publish this Acknowledgment by the Recantat. have since received from the Authors of Misrepresentations. Witness my Hand the 3d September, 1770. T. BONELI THURSDAY's POST. ( By EXPRESS from LONDON.) Arrived the Holland and Flanders Mails. Frontiers of Italy, Aug. 24 . ADMIRAL Elphinstone, who, after the Defeat of the Ottoman Squa- dron, failed to block up the Dar- danelles, has taken twelve Ragufan and two French Vessels, laden with provision and Ammunition for the Captain acha. As a Squadron of Russian Ships are ow cruizing between the Isles of Candy and Cerigo, the Russians are Masters of all the Archipelago. Petersbourg, Aug. 17. We have received an Account from the two Armies under General Panin, on the other Side the Niester, that the Trenches before Bender were opened on the goth ult. by Lieut. Gen. Rennenkamp's Divi- sion, that General commanded in Person, be- sides whom Lieut. Gen. Elmt, Major Gen. Lobel, the Engineer Major Gen. Gerbel, Ma- jor Gen. Wulff of the Artillery, were there. In a Word, all the Generals who were not com- manded piqued themselves upon being present, and sharing the Danger together, and by their Example to encourage the common Soldiers to an uncommon Bravery. In the Night the ap- pointed Trenches were prepared, and 25 Pieces of heavy Cannon brought upon two Batteries; but the commanding General only fired upon those Turks who were roaming about in such Places as might damage the Entrenchments, as his Intention was to begin the Cannonading and Bombarding on all Sides of the Town at once. The 31 st, the Enemy set Fire to their Suburbs, after which they doubled their Cannonading. Our General examined the Entrenchments himself, and 2500 Men were employed at them that Day: All the Batteries and Mortars were prepared in the Entrenchments, on the other Side the Niester: About 400 Fathoms of the Fortification being finished, the General gave Orders to begin the Cannonading and Bom- barding every where at once in his Presence, which was instantly done with great Violence. The Enemy answered the same very heartily, and although the Town has been twice on Fire, they nave extinguished it both Times, and hold it out very bravely. COUNTRY NEWS. Reading, Sept. 8. We are informed that a Farmer of considerable Property residing near Checkendon, in Oxfordshire, who has had for some Years past a large Quantity of Wheat stored, for which he more than once refused 15l. per Load, has lately had the Mortification to find his Hopes blasted by the Rats, Mice, and other Vermin, which have destroyed and ren- dered useless the greatest Part of the Stock. Extract of a Letter from Ipswich, Sept. 7. " We have hitherto had as fine a Harvest as ever was known ; and not withstanding we have such Plenty, not only in this County, but all other Parts of England, yet we hear that in your avaritious Inclinations or the Bakers and meal- men!- It is well known that before the Harvest began, your Bakers have stocked themselves with Flour for a considerable Time ; therefore the Mealmen carry but little to Market, to keep up the Price ; this is giving the Bakers a great Advantage. That there is great Plenty in your Warehouse, is a Fact; a certain Proof of which is the Corn Vessels from this Port, and other Parts of the Coast of Suffolk, having been obliged to return with their Cargoes, as there would not be a Want of any for some Time; the Masters also declare, that Vessels from other Parts were obliged to return full. A Number of Gentlemen are to have a Meeting here, in order to consider of a Petition to Parliament, for Leave to bring in a Bill to oblige every Far- mer to carry his Corn to Market, and not fell it by Sample; that he shall not be allowed to keep any large Quantity by him, on the For- feiture of the Whole; that no Corn- Factor shall be allowed to ingross; and many other Articles." LONDON, Tuesday, Sept. 11. We now hear from very good Authority, that the Parliament will not fit for the Dispatch of Business, till after Christmas, on Account of the American Affairs being likely to terminate so well. From the Authority we received the Intel- ligence, it may be looked upon as certain, that Lord Camden will be again possessed of the Seals before the End of next Michaelmas Term. Some material Changes will also be made in the Law Department immediately upon the above Event's taking Place. We hear that a new Ministry was settled in a late Conference between a Great Personage and the Earl of Chatham. L— dC m's Secrecy, both as to his Plans for next Winter, and the Subject of them, fill the Inquisitive with an uncommon Degree of Curiosity. A thousand Conjectures are formed in Consequence of it, and though some are sup- posed to approach very near the Truth, yet every Person is still actuated with equal Im- patience for the Event. It is believed that some Matters relating to the late Peace will be touched upon in both Houses the next Sessions of Parliament. Much Opposition is expected to be made to the Government's Measures in Ireland; such, indeed, we are informed by those who have lately arrived from thence, as will produce a total Change of the Ministry's Plans concerning that Place; or a Dissolution of the Irish Par- liament. A great Man, now in Office who is lately gone to Ireland, is said to be charged with some particular Instructions to the principal Officer there, that were more proper to be communicated orally than transmitted in another Way. A Report is current that Col. Luttrell has resigned the Post of Adjutant General to the Army in Ireland, to which he was lately ap- pointed. The following Reason is assigned for his Resignation ; upwards of 150 Officers have sent over Letters to the Secretary of State, de- siring Leave to resign their Commissions, and for no other Reason, but because Mr. Luttrell was their Adjutant. Administration, foresee- ing the disagreeable Consequences that might probably ensue, from continuing Mr. Luttrell his Office, prudently demanded his Re- signation. A Marine Express, it seems, has been dis- patched after Lord Dunmore, with Instructions to his Lordship to thank the New- York Mer- chants publicly for their dutiful Behaviour. Letters from Philadelphia mention that most of the American Colonies have followed the Example of Boston and Philadelphia, in break- ing off all commercial Intercourse with New- York, until they shall rescind their late Impor- tation Agreement. Some Letters from New- York mention, that it is whispered there the Importation Party would soon be obliged to abandon the American Con- tinent, and at present remain under great Ap- prehensions from the Resentment of their injured Countrymen. All his Majesty's Dock Yards are to be in- spected, by the proper Commissioners, before the End of this Month. Orders are sent to the Victualling Office for getting ready a large Quantity of Salt Provi- sions for the Use of the Navy. A Number of Troops, with Provisions, will embark next Week for his Majesty's Garrisons in the Mediterranean Coast. Letters from Utrecht, by Yesterday's Mail, advise, that Mr. Murray, the English Ambas- sador at Constantinople, had communicated to the Ottoman Ministry some Dispatches relative to an Accommodation between that Court and Russia, which gave so great Satisfaction to the Divan, that the principal Members of it had made very rich Presents to his Excellency on the Occasion. The Interest of the Spanish Court has been joined to that of France, in endeavouring to procure a Peace, by Means of Great Britain, for the distressed Turks. We hear a Loan for a very large Sum of Mo- ney was last Week proposed to the monied Men in the City by the Russian Agents for the Ser- vice of her Imperial Majesty ; the Terms of which are said to be very advantageous to the Subscribers. By the foreign Papers which arrived, it ap- pears the Plague still rages with great Violence in Poland, and that the Courts of Vienna and Berlin have taken the utmost Precautions to dated the 28th of last Month, in order to hin- der the Plague from communicating with the United Provinces. A Letter from Hull, dated Aug. 29, says, " There lie at this Time, in Copenhagen Road, two Russian Men of War with forty Sail of Transports under Convoy. One of the Trans- ports belongs to a Gentleman in this Town ; it is worked by twenty English Sailors, and carries one hundred Russians, with Stores, & c. A Difference arose a few Days ago between the English and Russians on board this Ship, the Occasion of which I do not rightly know, but it terminated in a Fray, wherein, after a sharp Contest, our twenty Countrymen were victori- ous, and gave the hundred Northern Heroes a hearty Drubbing. The Russian Admiral was so incensed that he ordered the Englishmen to be brought on board his Ship, and had them so severely slogg'd ( I suppose a- la- mode de Russie) that the Lives of some of them are said to be in Danger. The English Sailors are so exasperated at this Treatment, that it is much to be questioned whether they will continue in the Service. The above is a Fact." We hear, that General Paoli is now writing a new History of Corsica from the most remote Period down to the present Time. An old Correspondent has sent us the follow- ing Intelligence : — " An Account is received in Town of the Death of Lord B ' s Servant, who, after languishing 3 Days of the Wounds he received, died of the Loss of Blood on the fourth." A Gentleman desires to acquaint the Pub- lick, that an effectual Method of preserving Corn from Vermin, is to throw some fine Sand between every two or three Layings of the Sheaves in making the Stacks or Ricks from the Bottom to the Top. This Practice was used by him last Year with Success, and without any Inconvenience, for the Sand fell out in cleaning the Corn. The Sand, being fine and dry, will absorb any Little Moisture that may be in the Corn, and is so offensive to Rats and Mice that they will not live in it. We hear that twelve Silkmen bought, the other Day, of two great Weavers in Spital- Fields, and an opulent Jew, Silk to the Amount of 150,000l. The Price of that important Article is advancing so fast, that it's thought they will clear before next Christmas at least 8o, oool. We are assured, that the Report of Mr. Quick's Horse not being permitted to run at Ludlow, is false. The only Reason of his not running was his happening to fall lame.

" On Wednesday last was performed here, to a numerous and genteel Company, Shake- speare's Jubilee Ode, which afforded great En- tertainment ; and the next Morning there was a Public Breakfast at the King's Arms.--- And, to shew further that we are People of true Taste and high Notions, I must relate to you the fol- lowing Adventure, which is a Fact, viz. The Wife of a certain Tradesman of this Town, who had been to the Jubilee Ode, returning Home in the Evening sooner than was expected, unluckily caught her dear Spouse in close Tete a Tete with their Servant Girl. The sudden Appearance of his Wife so struck him, that for a little Time he stood as mute and motion lets as Shakespeare's Statue; but, recovering himself, he rushed out of the Room with Ducal Haste and Resolution leaving the poor deluded. Girl a Victim to the furious Reproaches of her enraged Mistress. -- whether this Affair will end in a Divorce, we cannot at present judge; he has however taken his Bible Oath that he was not actually acquainted with the Girl; therefore we may reasonably conclude Matters will very shortly Wheel- wrightly about again." The Assize of Bread is as follow, viz. To the PRINTER of the WORCESTER JOURNAL SIR, THE following Recipe, to prevent Infection, deserves to be rendered as public as possible. It is called The Thieves Vinegar, having been made Use of by some abandoned Wretches who plun- dered the Dying and the Dead in one of the great Plagues Abroad. This Circumstance the Crimi- nals acknowledged to their Counsellor before their Execution. The Recipe will be certainly useful to Hospitals and workhouses. The Clergy may avail themselves of it in their Attendance upon Sick, and perhaps the Gentlemen of the Medical Profession may not think it entirely unworthy of their Regard. Your inferring in the Worcester Paper may be of general Service, and will oblige, Sir, your most humble Servant, A. B. To prevent INFECTION. TAKE of Rue, Wormwood, Sage, Lavender, Mint, and Rosemary, of each one Handfull; put these all together, with a Gallon of the best Vinegar, into a Stone Pan, covered over with Paste, and let them stand within the Warmth of a Fire to infuse for eight Days, then strain them off, and to every Quart Bottle put three Quarters of an Ounce of Camphire. The Camphire should be previously prepared by an Apothecary, otherwise it will not dissolve. Rub the Temples and Loins with this Preparation before going out in a Morn- ing, wash the Mouth, and snuff up some of it into the Nostrils, and carry a Piece of Sponge, that has been dipped in it, in order to smell to it pretty often.— Camphire alone put up the Nose, and into the Mouth, is a good Preservative against Infection. To all Masters, and Lovers, of Music. HAVING lately taken Notice of one of the greatest Curiosities in Music that, perhaps, ever was seen, in a very large Folio, which I pur- chased near thirty Years since, and contains the Works of most of the famous German, Italian, and English Masters, about two Centuries ago, all which were collected out of the Pope's grand Li- brary, at the Vatican, at Rome. This Piece of Music ( with Latin Words) was composed by our own Countryman, Mr. William Bird, Author of Non nobis Domine, & c. Bow thine Ear, and a great Number of other excellent Performances: It is a Canon, for eight Voices ; The two Trebles, two Contra — tenors, two Tenors, and two Basses, are all, two Parts in one, Recte et Retro, ( or forwards and backwards;) that is, begin the second Treble, second Contra- tenor, second Tenor, and second Bass, at the first Notes, and go on regularly to the last; every Note, Rest, & c. are exactly the same, as the first Treble, first Contra- tenor, first Tenor, and first Bass, are, beginning at the last Notes, and ending with the first: But what is most extremely surprizing, the Melody is as regular; the Rests and Points answer full as well, when the Parts are sung backwards, as in the common Method of be- ginning with the first Note, and ending with the last: In short, I may venture to affirm, that there is not such another Piece of Music, for Air, and Contrivance, in the whole Universe, as every Per- son will allow, that fees it. I design to have it neatly engraven, on a Copper- plate, and printed ( with the finest Red Ink) on a large Sheet of Im- perial Paper, so that the Whole may be seen in one point of View.

Resolved, THAT his M , to shew a just Contempt for the Clamours of the People, which is the only Way to make them fawn in Return, is not, in his Speech, to take any Notice of those Events which have taken Place since the last Session; such as the Continuation of the Murmurs of the People, the he Fire at Portsmouth, or the Insolence of the Spa- niards, & c. & c. but after holding up the Virtues of Unanimity, and assuring them of the pacific Sentiments of his Brother Princes, to recommend to their most serious Observation, a Plan for the Elevation of a new Palace at Richmond. Resolved, That as Lord H-- ll— d's Accounts are too imperfect to be laid before the public in their present State of Fermentation, that they are not passed this Session; and it is earnestly recommended to his Lordship, to prepare for the Continent im- mediately. Resolved, That 10,000l. being the Sum lately awarded to be paid by the D. of C. to Lord G--- r be carried in smaller Sums to the several public Accounts; and as we have the highest Dependance on the financing Abilities of Mr. B-- d-- w, ordered, that he do adjust and dispose of the same with all convenient Speed. Resolved, That a List be forthwith made out, of all those Members of both Houses ( Friends to G-- V-- t) who do not regularly attend; and that Lord N—- th, three Days at least, previous to any important Question, d0 give them due Notice thereof, threatening them, on Non- attendance, with the Forfeiture of Court Favour. Resolved, That the present Arrears of the Civil List, which amount to 150.000l. be, for this Ses- sion ( to prevent any Interruption of other Business) paid out of the Assessments on the East- India Com- pany, for the Enlargement of their Charter. Resolved, That as the List of anti- ministerial Writers will probably encrease during this Winter, ordered, that Mr. J h Dy— s— n do look out for a sufficient Quantity to oppose them; and as Whores and Authors should be paid before- hand, to keep them in good Humour, that he be furnished with a sufficient Sum to advance them a Month's Salary before- hand. Resolved, That the Business of America be post- poned till the second last Day of the Sessions, and then further put off on Account of the Want of Time, as may be very reasonably urged. The Sessions after this they may be made the first Object, as by that Time, from the approved Abilities of two such Commanders, both by Sea and Land, as at present govern in that Part of the World, we shall find it less difficult to settle Matters with a prostrate Foe, than a presumptuous Enemy. N. B. Ordered, That Copies of these Resolutions be sent to the several Members of the Carlton- House Junto, with a Request, if they have any fur- ther Emendations, they will transmit them to Lord N— th, at his House in Downing- Street, on or be- fore the 9th of next November. The following Letter was lately sent by Robert Morris. Esq; to the Chairman of the Supporters of the Bill of Rights, resigning the Office of Secretary to that Society. GENTLEMEN, THE Post which I have held in your Society I shall ever esteem to be one of the greatest Honours of my Life, and the only Sort of Place I ever desire to accept. With what Zeal, or Abilities I have promoted the common Cause of Liberty you are best able to judge : Such as these have been, they still shall never be wanting for the same Pur- poses, when I conceive myself capable of exerting them to Effect. Some Success has without Doubt already attended the Operations of our Society; but my own Judgment is, that an unhappy Ne- cessity will require Operations of a different Nature, before we shall have fulfilled the Duty which, as Patriots, we owe to our Country. In an Age, spiritless and abandoned as the present, it is some- thing to have proceeded thus far. It is through our Means that a Claim of a free Representation has not long ago been crushed in its Birth. Hitherto it has been supprest by the mere Dint of superior Force; and now waits impatiently to be vindicated by the noble Resentment of an injured People. Through us the Persecution of an Individual, who by the Name of Countryman has every Title to our Support, has been rendered almost ineffectual; and the Abettors of it, however dignified, have become the Scorn and Hatred of the People. It has not been my Fault if that Gentleman has not been sufficiently rewarded for all his Troubles: I wish to see him superior to his Enemies, easy in his Circumstances, as I know him to be independent in his Principles. This he deserves from the Hu- manity, the Gratitude, and, if we have a Desire not to fee a similar Proscription repeated in our Days, from the good Sense of this Nation. As for those perpetual Candidates for Power, Pensions, or Office, both within the Senate and without, I equally detest and abjure them all, whether they are possest of present Confidence or not; I hold them Enemies to the Liberty of the common Peo- ple, Impostors in Politics, and the Scourge of this Kingdom. Much is wanting to give a Prospect of Success to our Opposition against the Ministers of Govern- ment. We are not without Abuses, but without the legal Means of reforming them. The whole Frame of Administration is corrupt. It is a Farce to call the P t a complete and adequate Re- presentation of the People; against this, more than the Middlesex Election stares us in the Face: It is in vain therefore to resort to them, or postpone our Hopes to the feeble Remedy of a septennial Choice; a Choice, placed in such Hands, as never to be come expressive of the Sense of the Community. Petitions and Remonstrances have been tried with- out Effect. There remains however the good Courage of the English Nation, which I hope ( though there has long appeared too great a De- ficiency of Spirit) will never fail to shew itself when the Measure of Oppression is fully compleated. arrive; till which, though I should wish to prevent the Occasion, I shall reserve myself, being of Opinion, with those resectable Ancients, who held it crimi- nal not to take a Part in the Commotions of their Country. Having given this Account of my Principles, and these Reasons for my Conduct I must now re- sign the Office of Secretary, which 1 have been honoured with in your Society from its Com- mencement. I shall still be proud of being associated with Men, who, I am persuaded, have effectually removed themselves, by the decisive Part which they have taken against the most favourite and de- termined Measures of the Court, from Trust, Ho- nour, or Employs, whilst the present System of Affairs continues. The Support of Mr. Walkes, that Victim to a Woman's Wrath, is a Test to which the great Leaders of parliamentary Oppo- sition will never submit. They behold in him an insurmountable Barrier to the expected Gratifica- tions of all their Labours. We have seen them separate themselves from him and from his Cause ( unless where they could make it subservient to their own Ambition) as they would from an In- fection; and whilst they continue so separated, I shall look upon them as interested Men, more studious to do themselves Good, than their Coun- try. These are not the Persons from whom We are to expect Subscriptions, solemn Covenants, Stipulations, and Confederacies. Such are the Instruments and Resources of mors honest Men, for which the Time already approaches; but to which these will never be driven, unless in mere Despair of obtaining Places; a Matter, which it is not impossible may soon happen, through the happy Obstinacy of the superior Powers ; and thus they, who never would be virtuous before, be rendered so, from the Want of other Temptation, in Despite of themselves, and their own evil In- clinations. For my own Part, I will confess, that the Cause of Mr. Wilkes, as an injured and persecuted Indi- vidual, has been the first and hitherto the only Motive of my appearing in Public. I have the Satisfaction to say, that I leave this Cause in a bet- ter Situation, at least, than when I found it; tho' not the Vanity to think, that much of our Suc- cess ( which indeed ought to have been greater) has been owing to my Endeavours. I am resolved however not to act any longer in the Office of Secre- tary. I should nothave undertaken it at first, but in Expectation that it would have soon fallen to the Lot of others in Turn. I have repeatedly desired Leave to resign, and as constantly received no other Answer than your Compliments upon my Conduct. I must therefore now resign without Leave, because I cannot continue in my Office with the same Alacrity I have done, being tired of my Share of the Burthen, and having some- thing else to do. As for the Odium which may have fallen upon my Name, from the conspicuous Part I have appeared in, I shall esteem that my greatest Reward, being satisfied it will only come from a Quarter, whose Enmity will be my greatest Honour. When you proceed to the Election of another Secretary, I hope your Choice will fall upon one much more worthy than, GENTLEMEN, Your devoted and obedient humble Servant, ROBERT MORRIS. lathers tor Ages have been happy in the Possession of, the distinguishing Glory of this Land of Li- berty? Though our Representatives have basely betrayed us, and, like Esau, have sold their Birth- right for a Mess of Pottage, the Time will come, when the Power they have thus abused will return again into the Hands of the original Possessors. We shall then be free let us not destroy that Freedom ourselves; let no Threats intimidate, nor Corruption seduce us from the Duty we owe our Country and our Posterity; but actuated by Mo- tives far more glorious than the mercenary Sons of Corruption can ever experience, let us chuse such Representatives as we may have Confidence in on the Day of Trial, who will redress the many enor- mous Grievances which we have too long padently laboured under, and perpetuate the Blessings of this noble Constitution to the latest Posterity.

The generous effects of this great Remedy, only sensible in Operation by a Degree of Perspiration equal to the Ne- cessity of the Disease, are incredible without Experience. By an exalted Power it fortifies the Life of the Patient, thereby enabling Nature, in her own Way, to throw off Disorders, in filch wife, that People are often astonished at the Possibility of what they most happily experience.

Berrow, in Worcester. To the PRINTER. SIR, AFree Government, like our's, can never sub- sist without some internal Disorders. Altho' the Prerogative of the Monarch is limited by the Constitution, it would have been a Matter of great Wonder, had none of our Kings ever broke thro' these Limits. When a King, or indeed any Part of the Legislature, has exceeded the Bounds pre- scribed by the Constitution, it always did, and ever will ( while the least vital Spark of Liberty re- mains in the Breasts of the People) beget an Op- position from them. Hence the glorious Stand made against the arbitrary Acts of the first Charles, which, though it was productive of a great Al- teration in the Constitution, was most materially conducive to the Liberty we now enjoy. The King and his Parliament at open War with each other, gave our Constitution such a Shock as it never before experienced, and which was too vio- lent to calmly subside. But this temporary Eclipse which the Constitution suffered, served to evince the great Power of a House of Commons, actu- ated and determined by the glorious Principles of public Liberty. It did not let never to rife again: On the contrary, we find it restored without Bloodshed, and, as it were, rebound with re- doubled Vigour from its Fall. The Stuarts, not contented with the Power given them by the Constitution, were often making In- novation. Misled with a false Idea of absolute Do- minion over their Subjects, they could not conceive that they had any Right to impose Restrictions on their Sovereign; and, unhappily fur them, endea- vouring to put this Theory into Practice, one of them lost his Life, and another his Throne. The desperate Attempt ended in the utter Expulsion of their Race. The glorious Revolution was an incontestible Proof, that the Sovereign Power flowed from a purer, a nobler Source, than any hereditary uncon- troulable Right the Choice of a free People. To this we owe that solemn Confirmation of our Liberties, the Bill of Rights, and the present Esta- blishment of the Crown in the House of Hanover. The People, in giving the Sovereign Power to that House, gave it as a most solemn Trust. They called them in to protect and support those Rights, which Tyrants had invaded and abused. I hope the People will never have Occasion to repent this Choice ; but let it be remembered, that the Power of the Sovereign is derived from the same Source now, as at the Revolution ; that Kings are as ac- countable now to their Subjects, for the just Exer- cise of their Authority, as at that Period. The present Contest between the whole Legislature, and the Body of the People, is of a most important Nature. The Right of Election is our most essen- tial Privilege a Privilege which we cannot sur- render, without subjecting ourselves to the galling Yoke of Slavery, and incurring the Execrations of our Posterity. If we don't feel for ourselves, let us feel for them. Shall our Timidity or Cor- The Money for all Prizes will be paid at this Office without any Deduction whatever, agreeable to the Act of Parliament.

Being, by the Steam of hot Water, applied immediately I to the Part affected, the Patient is certain to find Relief in a few Moments; and, by continuing the Use of this invaluable Medicine for a shorter or longer Time, accord- ing to the Inveteracy of his Complaint, he may depend upon a radical Cure, as may be well attested by Numbers of People, both in the City of London, and other Parts! of the Kingdom. But the Public are particularly requested to observe, that in the Small- Pox, Measles, Inflamations of the Breast called Peripneumonies or Pleurisies, the frequent Appli- cation of this Medicine will afford the Patient more Re- lief than all other Remedies whatsoever. In these dan- gerous Cases, after plentiful Bleeding, it must be applied every Hour, till the Disorder begins to remit; and the Water must not be drank, but, when it grows cool, must be thrown out.

To Mr. Norton, Surgeon, Golden- Square. Prescot- Street, August 24, 1770. SIR, I should think myself wanting in Gratitude to you, and Humanity to my Fellow- Creatures, if I longer omitted acquainting the Public of the most extraordinary Cure I have obtained by the Use of your [ MAREDANT'S] Drops. It is twenty two Years since I was first. taken all with the Scurvy, which appeared in great Blotches and other Eruptions all over my Body : I have had the Advice of many Physicians of Eminence, from some of whom received temporary Relief, which ( and batting in the Sea), only enabled me to support a most miserable Life. I was in the most afflicting Situation, without Hopes of Recovery, when, luckily leading the News- Papers, I saw the Cute of Mr. Hall, Attorney, in Johnson's Court Fleet- Street, whom I had known fot many Years , that induced me to begin your Drops ; in taking a few Bottles I found great Benefit, particularly in my Constitution and Appetite ; and, by continuing them, am effectually cured; which I have no Reason to doubt, as it above two Years since I took any, and remain in perfect Health, though I can justly and truly say, I was in as deplorable a Condition as ever Man was. I am, with great Esteem, Your most obedient humble Servant, HENRY TRENCHARD GOODENOUGH, Steward to the Magdalen- Hospital P. S. When I took the Drops I was a Clerk in the Preroga- tive- Office, Doctors- Commons. Any Person still doubtful of the Efficacy of this Medi- cine, may ( by applying to Mr. NORTON, Surgeon, the West Side of Golden square, near Piccadilly, London, the only Author and Proprietor, where these Drops are sold in Bottles of Six Shillings each) be fully convinced of their good Effect, by being referred to many People of Credit, who have been cured of the Leprosy, Scurvy, Ulcers, the Evil, Fistulas, Piles, long- continued In- flammations of the Eyes, and every other Disorder arising from a Foulness in the Blood. They may be taken in any Season, without the least Inconvenience or Hindrance of Business. They also perfect Digestion, and amazingly create an Appetite. N. B.
