THURSDAY, November I, 177o. No. 3196. 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 themostmaterial 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. FOREIGN AFFAIRS. Extract of a private Letter from Contantinople. THE North Eastern Part of Eu- r0pe at Present both de- lighted and terrified by a Spe- cies of Magnificence, with which the World has been for some Time unacquainted.— The Grand Signior has, at last, taken the Field in Person. He is the only Turkish Emperor who has headed his own Ar- mies since the Time of Solyman the Magnifi- cent. When Notice was given in the Seraglio that an imperial Camp was to be formed, it may easily be conceived what was the Surprize, and what was the Tumult. As all the Prepa- ration was new, every Officer of the House- hold had something to do which he had never done before, and which therefore he knew not how to do. It was observed that the Grand Signior, who, through all the Accidents of this War, had preserved a natural or affected Tranquility, came out of his Haram solicitous and dejected, having been, as it is supposed, ruffled by the Disorder of the Women and their Attendants, of whom some were weeping arid fainting, because they were selected for the March, and others furious and clamorous, be- cause, being lest behind, they thought them- selves neglected. But in the Courts of Eastern Princes, Fear and Resentment are idle Pas- sions. The Order of the Master must be obeyed. The Grand Signior sets out with a Pomp be- Coming What he stiles himself, The Master of the World. The Imperial Tent contains a Square of an hundred Feet every Way, and is covered on the Outside with the choicest Ta- pestry. All the Furniture is of Silver, and over every Apartment into which it is divided, is a Banner interwoven with Golden Threads, and edged with Diamonds. The Crescent, which is raised high over the Entrance, is of massy Gold. Around this Pavillion are the Tents of his Women and their Attendants, into which it is Death to enter, and which are therefore dis- tinguished from all others by a Covering of yellow Silk, and by white Plumes of Ostrich Feathers waving on their Tops. Their March little less magnificent than their Encamp- ment. The Waggons which convey the Wo- men, and which are probably the same as the Marmamaxae of the antient Persians, are co- vered in like Manner with yellow Silk, and the Harness 0f the Horses adorned with Pearls. When the Women dismount from these Car- riages, Notice is given by a particular Sound of the Instruments of War, and the whole Army turn their Backs that they may not look upon them. It is easy to perceive, that however this Magnificence may gratify the Sultan's Vanity, it can contribute little to. his Success. The Russians will fight with more Eagerness to gain these Riches for themselves, than the Turks to preserve them for their Master. That no Encouragement may however be wanting, on the fifth Day of their March was published the following Proclamation : " BE it known to the invincible Defenders of our illustrious Empire, the Officers and Sol- diers of the Army now marching to chastise Insolence and support Justice, that since the Sultan has put himself at the Head of his faith- ful Troops, it is his Pleasure that his Presence be perceived not more by the Strictness of his Discipline, than by the Splendor of his Li- berality. He therefore makes it known to the utmost Limits of his Camp, that when his Can- non shall have swept away Resistance, and his Scimetar shall have fallen on the Neck of Ob- stinacy ; when he shall hear no Voice but that of Supplication, and shall see nothing but the Dust of Armies flying before him, he will reward his steady Followers by distributing amongst them the Spoils of the Conquered. He will give them Kingdoms to be parcelled out, and Cities to be set to Sale. Let them look round the Territories of their Enemies, and consider them as their own Possessions. Let them num- ber the Armies that oppose them, and consider them as the Slaves by whose future Labour those Possessions shall be cultivated." It was observed, that when his Proclama- tion was published, it produced no great Exultation. The whole Army was silent, except a few Troops, which were prepared before- hand to receive it with Acclamations. LONDON, Thursday, October 25. Mr. Potter, the Messenger, set off again on Sunday last, with Dispatches for Madrid A Cabinet Council was held a few Days ago in the Presence of the French King, when the Spanish Ambassador at that Court was so much disgusted at the Result of their Deliberations, that he went away from the Chamber before it was quite up, on finding that the Court of France was not inclined to join in War. Advice is received, that all the Branches of the House of Bourbon have united, as Media- tors between the Turks and Russians. Tuesday the Lords of the Admiralty put the following Ships into Commission: viz. the Ocean, Cranston; Terrible, Arbuthnot; Ra- milies, Bentinck; Trident, Hartwell; Cen- taur, Hammond; Buckingham, Kempenfelt; Fame, Isaac Oury; Boyne, Burnet; Prudent, Schomberg. The Ships commanded by the Captains Ogle, Rusworth, Drummond, and Lucas, where also put into Commission. The Lords of the Admiralty have sent an Order for five of his Majesty's Frigates at Cha- tham to be sent to Deptford, to be immediately fitted out for Sea. On Tuesday Evening General Conway ar- rived in Town from Portsmouth ; and Yester- day he kissed his Majesty's Hand on being appointed Colonel of the Royal Regiment of Horse Guards Blue, in the Room of the late Marquis of Granby. It is said, that General Harvey will succeed General Conway as Colonel of the fourth Re- giment of Dragoons. The Hon. Capt. Barrington, of his Ma- jesty's Ship Albion, 74 Guns, at Chatham, is appointed Colonel of Marines, in the room of the Right Hon. Lord Viscount Howe, pro- moted to the Rank of a Rear Admiral. We are told that it is the Opinion of the Premier, that the great Expence attending the present Armament, cannot, in its Consequences, be attended with any Loss to the Nation, as while it remains in our own Ports, the Money that is spent will circulate among ourselves, and not enrich any foreign Power. The British Squadron in the Mediteranean is equal now to that, of any other Power whatever. The Lords of the Admiralty having written to several Noblemen and Gentlemen for their Assistance in providing Hands for manning his Majesty's Fleet; and among others to his Grace the Duke of Northumberland, Lord Lieute- nant and Custos Rotulorum for the County of Middlesex, that Nobleman has written to Sir John Fielding upon the Subject, the Contents of which Sir John communicated to other Jus- tices of the Peace, who met Yesterday at Guild- hall, Westminster; after which the Bench took the Matter into Consideration, and resolved to put in Force every legal Method to forward the above necessary Business. Tuesday Orders were given for impressing 500 Watermen on the River Thames, for man- ning the Navy. Tuesday the Press for Landmen was warmer than ever. In the Strand, between Six and Seven o'Clock, there were upwards of fifty able- bodied Men taken and conveyed on board a Lighter at Somerset House. We hear that it was from the first proposed to raise no more than fifteen thousand additional Seamen ; when that Number is compleated, we hear, the Bounty and Press will be counter- manded. We are assured, that Lord Holland is not able to attend his Duty in Parliament from his extreme bad State of Health. His Lordship is lifted in and out of Bed by two of his strongest Servants. His Body is in such a State, that if he was to fall from his Chair, by an Accident, he would never be able to get up again, for which Reason he is never left alone a Minute. Yesterday a Court of Aldermen was held at Guildhall, when Application was made to raise the Assize of Bread, on account of the advanced Price of Corn in Mark- Lane, when an Order was made, that Bread should be continued at the Price as before; the Court being of Opinion that some unfair Practices were used to prevent Plenty of Corn being brought to Market, in order to inhance its Value. Yesterday the Sessions began at the Old Baily, when 17 Prisoners were tried, one of whom was capitally convicted, viz. Charles Burton for a Burglary in the Dwelling- House of Thomas Alston, in Albemarle - Street, Clerk- enwell; eight were cast for Transportation, and eight acquitted.

The following is another remarkable Instance of the good Effects of ROWLEY'S HERB SNUFF and TOBACCO: Mr. JOHN STRAHAN, Watch- maker, in Rat- cliff Row, City Road, London, was subject to a Decay of' Sight for several Years, until at length the Use of Glasses, and the Assistance of many skilful. persons proved ineffectual; an Inflamma tion came on in both Eyes; he was for a long Time incapable of following his Business, and had nothing before him but the melancholy Prospect of becoming blind, when ROWLEY'S HERB SNUFF relieved him. He continued the Use of it for about a Year, and can now see to perform with Ease the nicest Part of the Watch- making Busi- ness without Spectacles. " I do aver the above Relation to be true, and " that it is a Fact well known to all my Ac- quaintance. JOHN STRAHAN." This HERB SNUFF and TOBACCO are sold by Mr. Gamidge, Bookseller, at Worcester.

Arrived the Mails from France and Holland. Constantinople, Sept. 3. The Ambassador from France has in vain used his utmost Efforts to engage the Porte to continue the War at least four Months longer, relying on the great Strength of the Fortifications that the Chevalier Tot, and the other French Engineers, have made along the Coasts of the Straights of the Dardanelles. In fail, they are such as mull render that impor- tant Pass impregnable. Nine small Fortresses are built on the Side of Asia, and seven on the Side of Europe, on which are placed above one thousand Brass Cannon. The Batteries of the first Castles of the Dar- danelles consist of three Ranks: The Cannon of the first are fixed in the Earth, without Car- riages, to fire on a Level with the Water's Edge; the second so as to annoy the Crews on Deck; and the third, to take Aim at the Rig- ging of Ships: The Garrisons consist of thirty thousand picked Men, and several Frigates are disposed in a triangular Form, with a Number of Fire- ships, so as to shut up the Mouth of the Streights. A private Letter from the fame Place men- tions, that, after the compleat Victory gained by the Russians the first of August, over the Turks, who loll on that Occasion above sixty thousand Men, in killed, Prisoners, drowned, and strayed, the Janissaries remaining, who were in Number about thirty- five thousand, immediately seized the Standard of Mahomet, crying out with a loud Voice, " That they could no longer behold with an Eye of Indif- ference their Comrades thus totally destroyed by an unjust War; that they entirely renounced their Arms, and would never take them up again, to make Use of them against a Nation which they already looked upon as their greatest Friends; and that they were all resolved to go that Moment to Constantinople, and dethrone the Grand Signior, and set up his Brother Ba- jazet in his Place. " The Grand Vizier being extremely embarrassed after a Declaration so unforeseen, had Recourse to the Rouzna- medgi Effendi, who having the Direction of the Military Chest, had great Credit with the Janissaries; the Rouznamedgi thereupon re- presented to the Chief of the Janizaries the Consequences that would result from their abandoning the Army to the Pursuits of the Ruffians, who would avail themselves of that favourable Circumstance to massacre them all, and direct their March to the Capital of the Ottoman Empire. This Speech calmed their Fury a little; but they unanimously demanded that the Rouznamedgi Effendi should be dis- patched to Constantinople, to represent to the Divan the Motives of their Discontent, and bring back to them a decisive Answer, con- formable to their Will, in twenty- one Days Time, in Default of which they would not fail to put their first Project in Execution. Their Demands contained the five following Articles, viz. 1. That the respectable Body of Janissaries, who in all Times have ever been more attached to the Ottoman Empire than any other Corps, would continue to testify the fame Zeal, and the same Attachment for the Person of the Grand Signior, provided he would in good Earnest undertake to put an End to this War, which they could not but consider as contrary to the Will of God, inasmuch as it was unjust. 2. That Moussoun Oghlou, who was Vizier when this War was declared, and who was exiled with Osman Reis Effendi, for having both of them very wisely opposed it, be recalled and reinstated in the first Employ- ments. 3. That M. Abrescos, the Russian Re- sident, be taken cut of Prison, and set at Li- berty, in order that he may return to his Pa- lace at Constantinople, with all the Honours due to his Character. 4. That, for the future, the Russians be looked upon as the best Friends of the Porte. 5. That Peace be immediately concluded, and without the smallest Pretence to draw the Negociation to any Length. On the Arrival of Rouznamedgi, the Grand Signior assembled a Divan, at which about fifteen hundred of the principal Members of the State afflicted. The Assembly were unani- mous for Peace, and the Grand Signior, seeing the Necessity of conforming to their Intentions, promised to condescend thereto, but desired an Indemnification from the Divan, that he should not hereafter be reproached for making a dis- honourable Peace, which was immediately granted him under the Great Seal of the Divan. Warsaw, Sept. 28. The Plague begins to make great Ravages in the different Parts of this Kingdom, five hundred People were car- ried off in three Weeks at Zulkiew, in the En- virons of Lembourg. Venice, Oct. 6. We have received no further Accounts here of the Operations of the Ruf- fian Fleet; but several of our principal Mer- chants have received very interesting Letters from Egypt, according to which it is very cer- tain, that vast Country is entirely dismembered from the Ottoman Empire. And Aly Bey has taken upon himself the Title of Sultan of Egypt. COUNTRY NEWS. Dover, Oct. 26. The following melancholy Affair happened Yesterday at the City of Lon- don Inn. A Gentleman came from London to that House on Wednesday Evening, and soon after agreed to go in the Packet to Calais, but going to Sea that Night, and also the Tide following, which happened Yesterday about Noon. The Gentleman being informed about Two o'Clock that the Packet would not fail, seemed greatly disappointed, retired to his Room, and shot himself through the Head. He is not yet dead, but lies insensible, without the least Hopes. On examining his Papers, his Name appears to be Gordon, and that he has travelled very expeditiously from Edinburgh, which Place he had left only three or four Days. Amongst his Papers were discovered Bills and Drafts to the Amount of four thousand Pounds, and fifty Pounds in Cash were found upon him. A small Box, about seventeen Inches square, immensely heavy, and supposed to be Money, was likewise found in his Trunk. The Things are all sealed up, and proper Care is taken of them by the Matter of the Inn, till a particular Account of him can be obtained. Bristol , Oct. 25. Thursday last a Troop of the Second or Queen's Regiment of Dragoon Guards, arrived in this City from Worcester, in order to guard the Sea Coasts, that no Person or Goods may come on Shore from any Vessels performing Quarantine in the River, LONDON, Saturday, October 27. This Morning, at Nine o'Clock, their Royal Highnesses the Princess Dowager of Wales and the Duke of Gloucester, arrived at Carlton- House. We hear the Earl of Bute is expected soon in England, as his Baggage is arrived. On Wednesday Night a Messenger arrived at Lord Weymouth's Office in Cleveland Row, who was immediately dispatched to his Majesty at Richmond, with Advices of great Impor- tance from the French Court, and Yesterday in the Afternoon Mr. Coates, his Majesty's Messenger, setout express for France with An- swers to the said Accounts. A Council was held Yesterday Morning at Lord North's in Downing- Street, on the Sub- ject of Dispatches from France. Mr. Potter, the Messenger, who set off again for Madrid, with Dispatches for that Court, on Sunday last, has undertaken to be in Town by the 8th of November, by which Means there will be Time to consider the Answer to his Business before the Parliament fits, so as to have proper Notice taken of it in the King's Speech. The Letters received this Week from Ja- maica assert, that the Spaniards have landed two Regiments of Troops at Hispaniola. It is assured, that a Treaty is actually signed between the Prussian Monarch and the Empe- ror of Germany, in which no other Potentate is concerned. The reported Fact of one thousand Barrels of Gunpowder being sent last Week as Ballast from Dunkirk for the Service of Spain, has been, we are assured, not only authenticated to our Government, but they have also got positive Proofs that Quantities have been for some Time clandestinely conveyed from thence, and from Dieppe and Boulogne, under that and other Denominations, for the same Service. It was last Night reported, that recent and authentic Accounts are received in Town, of further Violations on the Privileges of the British Merchants at Lisbon. The Court of Portugal is taking every pos- sible foolish Measure to disgust that of Great Britain. By a late Ordinance, the English Merchants are prohibited from purchasing the Wines of the Growers at the Vintage, but must buy them of some Portuguese Wine Merchants. By this Device our Merchants will be obliged to buy their Wines at second Hand. The Con frequence is, that these Wines, which eight or ten Years ago could be sold here, at 28l. per Pipe, will not be sold this Year under 46I. This Week a Report of the State and Con- dition of all the Sea- Ports of France, bordering on the British Channel, has been made to the Admiralty, and from that to a Superior Board, by Persons of Experience who had been em- ployed for that Purpose. Not five thousand Pounds worth of the Stores which were destroyed at the Fire at Portsmouth has been yet replaced. — Such is the amazing Progress that was echoed forth in the News- papers ! We hear Lazarettos are intended to be built at the following Places, the Island of Alderney, in the British Channel, the Isle of Lundy, also in the British Channel, and the Isle of Man, in the Irish Channel. Wednesday Sir Francis Holborne, Baronet, kissed his Majesty's Hand on being appointed Rear Admiral of Great Britain, in the room of Sir Charles Knowles, Bart, who resigned on accepting the important Post of First Admiral of Russia from her Czarinas Majesty. The Report of a late deceased Commander's dying Suddenly gains Ground. When the Post of Master of Ordnance is dis- posed of, it is said, it will be given to the Duke of Gloucester. A very spirited Address to the Electors of the City and Liberties of Westminster is now cir- culating, preparatory to their Meeting on Wed- nesday next. It is whispered that a great Man in the Mi- nority has lately come at the Knowledge of certain important Secrets, which he intends shall be the Subject of parliamentary Investiga- tion the ensuing Sessions. It is said that a Proposal, which was some Years since made, but neglected, has, with Alterations, been laid before Lord North and approved, viz. that such Stockholders as chuse it, shall have the Liberty of converting their Periods; the Interest to be proportionably in- creased, and this Increase to be made good out of the Sinking Fund, or in such other Manner as Parliament may provide for. It is supposed, by able Calculators, that this Scheme would reduce the National Debt amazingly in fifteen Years, and nearly annihilate it in twenty- five. A Correspondent at Bristol informs us, that Press- Warrants are not suffered to be executed in that City; but that the Corporation allow Twenty Shillings to each Man in Addition to the Bounty allowed by his Majesty. By this Means the Men enter as fast as they are wanted, and the Inhabitants are relieved from the disa- greeable Circumstances attending the Execution of Press- Warrants. Some Years past it was esteemed a Prodigy to fee a Crow in Italy, but it happened one fine Evening as some Gentlemen and Ladies were taking the Air in a large Garden, a Crow flut- tered over their Heads, and dropped at the Feet of some Ladies who were sitting in an Alcove. The Company soon assembled to view this strange Creature; some touched it: However, out of the Number, which was six or seven and Twenty, eighteen died of a contagious Disor- der, supposed to be the Plague. This Account then corroborates the Assertion of one of your Correspondents, that Birds carry the Con- tagion. [ Gazetteer. ] Letters from Udina, in the Venetian Terri- tory, give an Account of a violent Hurricane which happened on the 19th ult. and laid waste an Extent of Land in that Province fifty Miles in Length, and two in Breadth. The greatest Part of the Wall which inclosed the Park of the Count Morino, at Persereano, was thrown down, whole Farms and many Edifices swept away, and the largest Trees torn up by the Roots. A Gentleman of Richmond, who for some Time past had paid his Addresses to a young Lady of Fortune in the Neighbourhood, fixed on Tuesday last for the celebrating of their Nuptials; but as they were going to Church his Conscience touched him, and he owned he had a Wife living in Gloucestershire.

By the COURT. BUND. Worcester, 27th 0ct. 1770. WHEREAS at a Court of Guar- dians of the Poor of this City, held on Tuesday the 25th Instant, Complaint was made to the Court, that some Persons have of late omitted bringing Hops which have been bought, sold, or delivered within the said City, to the public Scales to be weighed by the Hop- Weighers appointed for such Purpose, which Practices being considered as not only illegal, but prejudicial to the Charity; The Court did order, That the following Clauses in an Act of Parliament passed in the fourth Year of the Reign of his late Majesty King George the Second, should be published in the Worcester Jour- nal, and by Hand Bills; and that the same should be put in Execution against all Persons acting con- trary thereto for the future; viz. ' And for the better regulating of the said ' Hop- Market, be it also enacted by the Authority ' aforesaid, That all Hops hereafter to be bought, ' fold, or delivered within the said City of Wor- ' cester, or the Liberties, Suburbs, or Jurisdiction ' thereof, or Places adjacent, by the Wholesale, ' shall from Time to Time be first brought into the ' said Hop- Market, and there, and at no other ' Place, shall be publicly and in open Market ' bought, sold, and disposed of, and afterwards ' weighed at the public Scales there to be kept by ' the public Hop- Weigher, and thereupon the ' usual and customary Tolls, Fees, and Perquisites, ' shall be paid to, and received by the said Guar- ' dians of the Poor of the said City, and their ' Successors, from Time to Time, for the Uses and ' Purposes aforesaid.

B. FEILD. THURSDAY'S POST.. ( By EXPRESS from LONDON.) IRELAND. Dublin, October 20. LAST Thursday John Daw was tried and convicted for the barba- rous Murder committed by him at Turvey ( as formerly mentioned) at which Place he was executed Yesterday, pursuant to his Sentence. SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, Oct. 24. A few Days ago a Ves- sel came up the Firth from Memel, the Cap- tain of which, not knowing the present Order for Quarentine, took his Boat in order to come on Shore, and brought along with him a Lady who had been a Passenger in his Ship. This Lady, it seems, got on Shore, and came to her Sister, who lives in the Head of the Cannon- Gate of this City, which was not known till Yesterday, when a Guard was immediately placed upon the House, and this Morning she was conveyed down to the Ship again, till the appointed Time of Quarantine shall be ex- pired. The Captain did not get on Shore, but upon reporting where he came from, he was obliged to turn back, and his Ship ordered to Innerkeithing Bay. COUNTRY NEWS. Dover, Oct. 29. The Person who shot him- self at the City of London Inn ( see the preceding Page) died on Friday Evening. The Jury sat on the Body, and brought in their Verdict Lu- nacy. It appears he was Clerk to a Merchant at Edinburgh, from whence he had stolen the the Bills and Drafts. His real Name was Phi- lip Thompson, and he once bore an exceeding good Character, and in particular greatly re- spected by his Master. The Merchant's Bro- ther, in Pursuit of him, arrived here in a Post- Chaise Yesterday Afternoon, and seemed greatly concerned for what had happened. LONDON, Tuesday, Oct. 30. The Dutch were the principal Buyers in the Alley Yesterday, and did a great deal. Hence ' tis conjectured, from the Sagacity of those People, and the early Intelligence they usually have, that we are further from a War than People in general think of. It is said that our formidable Preparations, and Peremptoriness in not submitting the De- termination of our Dispute to a third Power, has produced the desired Effect ; and that the proud Castilians are content at this Time to bend the Neck to the Throne of Great Britain. We hear that notwithstanding we have so far succeeded as to oblige the Spaniards to make proper Submission for their late Behaviour with regard to Falkland's Islands, yet they have in some Measure gained their Ends also ; for it is said that our Ministry, through a mistaken No- tion of the Non- importance of these Isles, have agreed to desert them. The Highlands in Falkland's Island, from their Vicinity to the rich Mountains of Chili, thought to contain some of that precious Metal with which all the World is enamoured, which is supposed to be the Reason why the Spaniards are so unwilling to suffer any other Power to settle there. We are assured, that neither the Manilla Ransom, nor the Antigallican Prize, are Sub- jects that have been touched on in the late Ne- gociation with Spain, notwithstanding national and particular Justice claims it, and it seemed to be the general Wish of the People. By a Letter from Calais, we hear, that the French Ambassador at Madrid has been pre- sented with a Memorial relating to the present Dispute between the English and the Spaniards, complaining to the following Purport: That their attempting to make up the Breach was a gross Insult on Spain, as they were the principal Advisers of their making a Claim of Falkland's Island, and at the same Time promised, if any Rupture ensued from it, that they would join them to subdue the English ; that after spending an immense Sum in equipping a large Fleet, and reinforcing their Army, they had altered their Minds, and advised them to compromise Matters with the English, by restoring Falk- land's Island, and paying all Expences they have been at in fitting out so large a Fleet, & c. However, they were determined not to follow their Advice, and desired an immediate Answer whether they would abide by their former Pro- mise. The Letter further says, the Ambassador has not as yet given any Answer, but has dis- patched a Courier to his Court for Instructions. Whatever Intentions relative to a Rupture the Court of Spain may have, they cannot at present be determined ; however, it is certain that the Galleons, which lately sailed from Old Spain for the South Seas, are equipped with Men and Guns as in Time of War. Letters from Cadiz say, the Spaniards have now on the Stocks at that Port four large Ships of the Line, which are finishing under the Di- rection of an English Builder, upon a new Con- struction. All the Troops in Scotland have received Orders to begin their March towards Plymouth. Letters received by the last Holland Mail, confirm the Account of Bender's being taken ; and add, that it was taken by Storm, and the Slaughter was amazingly great on both Sides. Now the Russians are in Possession of Bender, there is but one more Fortress to retard their March to Constantinople. spect to the Distribution of Prize Money, will soon be laid before the P--- y C----- l. Yesterday several Members of the Minority waited on Lord Chatham. It is expected there will be warm Work in two august Assemblies the approaching Ses- sions, on the India and other Affairs. To- morrow Morning Mr. Alderman Wilkes, and the rest of the Westminster Gentlemen, are to meet at Appleby's, in Parliament- Street, and about Twelve o'Clock will proceed to Westminster Hall, to instruct their Members. A Detachment from the three Regiments of Foot Guards is ordered to be in Readiness To- morrow at the shortest Notice. Private Letters from Dublin, hint the great Dread of an Insurrection among the People, who now seem to be inflamed beyond all De- grees of Forbearance, on account of the Sus- pension of some of their temporary Laws, and the further Prorogation of their Parliament. We are authorised to assure the Public, that the true Cause of the Marquis of Granby's Death was the Gout, which having been flying about him some Days, at length fixed in his Stomach, and thereby put a Period to his Life in a few Minutes. When the News of the Death of the late Marquis of Granby reached his very intimate Friend, John Calcraft, Esq; he was hunting, near his Seat at Ingress, in Kent, who was so extremely affected therewith, that he would have fallen from his Horse, had he not been supported by two Gentlemen that were with him ; finding him unable to ride, they sent for his Post- chaise, in which he was carried home, where he has continued indisposed ever since. Upon the Father of a noble Warrior de- ceased finding that no Provision was made for an amiable young Lady, his natural Daugh- ter, he has declared he will give her 1o, ooo1. A noble Nabob, who, it has lately been as- serted, is in perfect Health, has, we are assured, every Night an Apothecary to sit by him in his Chamber. We hear that, as a certain Law Officer in the City has not made his Appearance at the Old Bailey this Sessions, though his Presence is so necessary, a Court of Common Council will be held in a few Days for an Enquiry into his present Conduct, and whether he is not obliged either to attend on the Duties of his Office, resign, or by the Leave of the Court appoint a Deputy, and to pay him out of the Salary the Corporation have settled on him. It has been said, that the late Premier en- gaged to defray the Expences of A. P. Esq; if he could get returned for the Borough of T. which amounted to 30001. After his Election, he waited on the Premier, expecting to have his Money repaid him, who made him an Offer only of 15oo1. which so enraged the new Mem- ber that he immediately joined the Minority — What Confidence can any Party put in a Man who will so readily change for filthy Lucre? Or how can he reconcile it to his Conscience, to hold a Fellowship of a College with an Estate which disqualifies him from holding it? We hear that Information having been given to the Lord- Mayor, that several Persons within the City had made Application to the Lords of the Admiralty for Protections for Person employed by them; his Lordship immediately wrote to the Lords of the Admiralty, expostu- lating with them on the Impropriety of their granting such Protections, it being well known that no Persons whatsoever can be imprest within the City without the Presence of a Constable, and that they must be carried immediately be- fore a Magistrate, where they are discharged, unless they have been Seamen, or are loose dis- orderly Persons. On Tuesday Night, at Eleven o'Clock, the several Constables of Westminster, & c. assem- bled in the new Guildhall, and received their Press- Warrants; after which they went to divers Publick- Houses, Night- Houses, & c. and picked up a great Number of idle Persons for the Use of his Majesty's Fleet. Yesterday twenty- eight impressed Seamen, tied together two and two, and strongly guarded by a Party of Soldiers, were brought to Town from St. Alban's and Hertford, and put on board a Tender for his Majesty's Service. In Consequence of an Information given by some Person, with a humourous Intent, a Press Gang went to the Lodging of a poor Fellow, who has lost both his Arms in Defence of his Country, and is known by most People by the Description of the Harmless Pen- cutter; they not only used the poor Man ill, but beat and abused his Landlord so grossly for taking his Part, that he was sent to St. Bartholomew's Hospital, where he now lies dangerously ill. There are Letters by the Polly, Capt. Kelly, which arrived on Sunday in the River, from Maryland, which bring Advice, that a Kind of Pestilential Disorder rages there amongst the Slaves, and carries off great Numbers; which is not only a great Loss to the Planters, but makes them greatly distressed for Want of Hands to work in the Plantations. The same Letters say, that their Crops have turned out very indifferent, and that the Price of their To- bacco must be greatly enhanced; they also say that Murders and Robberies are become very frequent there, and are committed, as it is sup- posed, by the Felons who are transported there Authentic Letters from Hamburgh, dated Oct. 16, assure, that by Accounts from Peters- burgh of the 29th of September, they learnt that Count Romanzow had received certain Information that the Grand Signor, Sultan Mustapha, had been obliged to vacate the Ot- has succeeded to his Place, and nominated a new Grand Vizir, and given Orders for the Grand Turkish Army to be recalled in order to cover Constantinople. The Flanders Mail which arrived Yesterday, contained very little new Intelligence. The Plague, by Accounts from Warsaw, is said to increase rather than diminish in Poland; and the Inhabitants of Warsaw are continually alarmed by the Attempts of the Confederates to set Fire to that Metropolis. By an authentic Letter from Parkgate, we hear that the Person taken up at Chester ( as mentioned in some of the Papers) was imme- diately set at Liberty, it appearing he was not Mr. Coyde, the Tea- Broker, whom the Post- Boy took him for, but a Musician, who was going over to Dublin to perform at one of the Theatres there. By a Letter received Yesterday from Morton Hampstead, in Devonshire, we are informed, that a terrible Fire broke out in the Stables be longing to the George Inn at that Place, on Wednesday Evening last, about Six o'Clock, which entirely destroyed the same, and the fol- lowing Houses, viz. Mr. Dinglas's, a Baker; Mr. Jacob Herd's, Woolcomber; Mr. William Hart's, Woolcomber; Mr Herd's, Carpenter; with all their Stock in Trade and Houshold Furniture; likewise ten Dwelling- Houses of poor labouring People. The Flames raged with great Fury till Twelve o'Clock at Night, and the Damage is computed at upwards of Five Thousand Pounds. On Saturday 11 Prisoners were tried at the Old Baily; four of whom were capitally con- victed; viz. Joseph Knight, Thomas Bird, and William Payne, for a Burglary in the Dwelling- House of Mrs. Girardot, in Great Marlbo- rough- Street, and stealing a large Quantity of Plate; and William Williams, for robbing John Waters, on the Highway, in a Field near Battle Bridge. The Trial of Joseph Hodges, for having Coining Engines in his Possession, lasted near three Hours; when the Jury, after having ; withdrawn for upwards of an Hour, acquitted him. And Yesterday the said Sessions ended, when 12 Prisoners were tried, one of whom was ca- pitally convicted, viz. Wm. Brent, alias Brett, for robbing Lady Mayo of Bank Notes, & c. to the Amount of upwards of 19001. Three were cast for Transportation, and seven acquitted.

SIR, Worcester, 0ctober 24, 1770. PASSING by a certain Church- Yard in this City, a few Days ago, I beheld a Sight which struck me with Horror: A Labourer was employed in digging a Trench, as I supposed for the Foun- dation of a Wall; across the Middle lay a human Corpse, still entire, the Flesh remaining on the Bones, and the Skin perfectly white. The Man was busied in removing this Obstacle, not indeed by conveying the whole Body into some other Si- tuation, as Humanity and Decency required, but by cutting as much of it away as impeded his Progress; he had already separated the Thighs from the Legs at the Knees, and was now endea- vouring to divide the Loins with his Spade, but finding it too sound to be so easily cut through, he took, up his Pick- axe, and fell to Work upon it. I turned, with inexpressible Horror, from so dismal a Sight; but, returning a few Minutes after, I saw he had thrown up the Thighs and Buttocks together on the Ground. Such glaring Violations of that Piety and Ten- derness, which we owe to the Memory of the Dead, surely ought not to go unpunished: All Nations have concurred in a humane Regard to the Remains of their departed Progenitors, and some have even carried it to a Degree of Extrava- gance. The People of Canada frequently take up the Bodies of their Relations, which have long since been buried, and, folding and adorning them with fresh Furs, commit them again unwillingly to the Earth, as if the Piety they owed to their Pa- rents and Friends was not sufficiently exhibited in a single Funeral. Should one of these People, whom we politely term Savages, be a Spectator of the Scenes too often transacted in our Church- Yards, what Judgment would he form of us ? Would he not think us the most cruel Barbarians; who, not contented to persecute each other while living, extended our Animosity to the lifeless Re- mains of our Fellow Creatures ? The religious Regard of the Egyptians to the Dead is well known to every one: They em- balmed them with the utmost Care, preserved them a long Time in their Houses, and recalled at their Sight the Remembrance of the Happiness which they had once tasted in their Society. It is a pleasing Reflection that, amongst this social Peo- ple, Friendship, filial Affection, and conjugal Love, extended even beyond the Grave! The Athe- nians too, condemned six of their victorious Ge- nerals, for neglecting to bury the Slain after the Battle of Arginusae, though they pleaded in Ex- cuse, that they were prevented by a sudden and violent Tempest. What then would have been the Fate of an Egyptian, or a Greek, who should have committed so impious an Insult on the Manes of the Dead, as that which I have related ? We esteem ourselves superior to those Nations in true Piety; we boast of the Purity of Manners, and the Delicacy of Sentiment which our Religion in- spires: Surely, then, we should not see with In- difference such flagrant and frequent Violations of that Piety and Decency, on which we pretend to set so high a Value ! The longer an Abuse is overlooked, the greater it necessarily grows. The Dead, it is true, are insensible of the Insult; but the Living are in- jured. Shall we suffer the Bodies of our Friends, our Fathers, or our Wives, to be torn from the Quiet of the Grave, mangled by the rude Hands of unfeeling Clowns, and exposed a sad Spectacle to every Passenger, in all the Deformity of Putre- faction and Decay ? It is certainly the indispen- sible Duty of those who shall see the Remains of their Friends and Relations treated with such In- dignity, to use their utmost Endeavours to punish the Delinquents. The Church never fails to exact its Fees for the Privilege of a narrow Corner to rot in, which, since it is purchased, ought doubtless to be sacred and inviolable : But this was, perhaps, the Body of some nameless and unhappy Wretch, who was denied an Asylum even in the Grave. J. G. To the Printer of the WORCESTeR JOURNAL. Mr. Berrow, Worcester, Oct. 28, 1770. AMisfortune which happened to me the other Day, ( just before I left London) sufficiently convinced me of the lnconveniencies arising from the indiscriminate Power lodged in Press Gangs, who pay no more Regard to those who plead Protection from the Badge of Literature, than a Bailiff's Follower. I would not have you think, Mr. Printer, that I was pressed myself: — but my Devil ( that is the Messenger of the Printing- House) was carried off, as he was going with the Copy of an Essay I had intended for one of the Daily Papers. Learning appears to me of so much Importance that ( in my Opinion) the Persons of the lowest Retainers to it should be secured from Molesta- tion ; and it gives me great Concern, though a very loyal Subject, that even a Ballad Singer, or the Hawker of bloody News, should be inter- rupted in their literary Vocations. I have, in vain, endeavoured to recover my Manuscript again ; for, though I cannot but think any one of my Productions of almost as much Conse- quence to the Nation as the fitting out a Fleet, the ignorant Sailors were so regardless of its inestimable Contents, that after much Enquiry I detected them ( with my Devil in, Conjunction) lighting their Pipes with it at an Alehouse by Puddle Dock. This irretrievable Loss to the Public, as well as myself, led me to consider, whether some Me- thod might not be thought of, to raise sufficient Forces for the Fleet and Army, without dis- turbing poor Labourers, and honest Mechanics, in their peaceful Occupations. I have at length, after great Pains and Expence of Thought, hit upon a Scheme which will effectually answer that End; and, without further Preface, shall lay it before the Public. I would propose, that every useless Member of the Community should be made of Service Ropes, or carry a Musquet; and every detri- mental one should be prevented from injuring his Fellow Subjects, and sent to annoy the com- mon Enemy. There is no Occasion to rob the Fields of their Husbandmen, or to fetch our Soldiers, as the Romans took their Dictator, from the Plough. It is well known that every Country can supply us with numerous Recruits, if we were to raise them out of that idle Body called Country ' Squires, many of whom are born only for the Destruction of Game, and the Dif- turbance of their Neighbours. Their whole Life is hurried away in scampering after Foxes, leaping Five- bar Gates, trampling upon Farmers' Corn, and swilling October. As they are, by their Profession, excellent Marksmen, and have been used to carry a Gun, they might employ their Powder to more Purpose in fetching down a Spaniard, or a Frenchman, than a Pheasant; and most of them might be incor- porated among the Cavalry, or formed into light- bodied Troops, and mounted on their own Hunters. And if they would follow an Enemy with the same Alacrity and Defiance of Danger as they follow a Fox, they might do prodigious Execution in a Pursuit. The greatest Danger would be, that if a Fox should. per- chance cross them in their March, they would be tempted to run from their Colours for the Sake of the Chace; and we should have them all Desert, or ( in the Language of Fox Hunters) gone away, If the Country is infested with these useless Animals, called'Squires, the great Metropolis is no less over - run with a Set of idle and mischievous Creatures, which we may call Town ' Squires; and, though no great Ex- ploits can be expected from this Tribe, yet ( as they are of no other Use whatever) they may at least serve in the Army, like Falstaff's Men, as " Food for Powder". But a very formid- able Troop might be composed of Part of them, distinguished by the Name of Bloods. The Fury of their Assaults on Drawers and Watch- men, and the Spirit displayed in storming a Bagnio, would be of infinite Service in the Field of Battle. But I would recommend it to theGeneral, to have them strictly disciplined, lest they should shoot some of their own Comrades, or perhaps run away, merely for the Sake of the Joke. Under proper Regulations such vio- lent Gentlemen would certainly be of Use: And what may we not expect from such intre- pid Heroes, who, for Want of Opportunity to exert their Prowess in warlike Skirmishes Abroad, have been obliged to vent their Cou- rage by breaking the Peace at Home ? Every one will agree with me, that those Men of Honour, termed Duellists, who make Fighting their Business, and cannot let their Swords rest quietly in their Scabbards, should be obliged to draw them in the Service of his Majesty. I have known one of these Duellists, to keep his Hand in, employ himself every Morning in thrusting at a Bit of Paper stuck against the Wainscot; and I have heard ano- ther boast, that he could snuff a Candle with his Pistol. These Gentlemen are therefore very fit to be employed in close Engagements. But it will be necessary to keep them in con- tinual Action ; for otherwise they would breed a Kind of Civil War among themselves, and, rather than not fight at all, turn their Wea- pons upon one another. The last Proposal which I have to make on this Subject, is to take the whole Body of Free- thinkers into Service. As they have no squeamish Notions about what will become of them hereafter, they can have no Fears about Death. I would therefore have the Free- thinkers put upon the most dangerous Exploits, and exposed to the greatest Heat of the Battle; for, since they confess that they are born into the World for no End whatever, and that they shall be nothing after Death, it is but Justice that they should be annihilated for the Good of their Country.

RICHARDSON and G. GOODLUCK, by a long Series of Observations, intense Application, and con- siderable Expence, assisted by a Gentleman who is generally allowed to be one of the most able Cal- culators of Chances in this Kingdom, have dis- covered a certain Method to know those Numbers in the Lottery, which stand the best Chance for being Prizes in general, and capital ones in par- ticular, so that upon a Calculation they can affirm, that a lest Quantity of such Numbers will have more Prizes than a much greater Quantity of others; and as they have proved this by Experi- ments, which have been repeatedly found to answer very nearly the said Calculation; they may with great Propriety assert, that the Numbers thus pointed out will be of more Value by at least Two Guineas each, than others promiscuously chosen; yet, to prove that no Imposition is intended by this Publication, they continue to sell the Tickets and Shares at the usual Prices. T'hey have procured many of the said Numbers, winch are now selling in Tickets and Shares, from a Half to a Sixty fourth Part. Mess. Richardson and Goodluck are well aware of the Opposition which this Advertisement will meet with from interested Persons, yet they are under no Sort of Doubt but that the Drawing of this and future Lotteries will prove the Truth of their Calculation. The Tickets and Shares, from a Half to a Sixty- fourth Part, are sold by J. Richardson and G. Goodluck ( remarkable for selling and sharing several of the most capital Prizes) at their State- Lottery- Offices, opposite the Admiralty, White- hall; and the Corner of Cornhill and Threadneedle Street, opposite the Mansion- House; where the full Money will be paid for the Prizes. The Lottery begins drawing the 19th of November.
