Berrow's Worcester Journal. THURSDAY, November 8, 1770. No. 3197. 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. Boston, ( New- England) September 6. LAST Friday Capt. Preston, with the Soldiers and others, indicted for the Murders com mitted in King Street, on the 5th March last, were ar- raigned at the Bar of the Su- perior Court, & c. now sitting here, and severally pleaded Not Guilty ; but their Trial is put off to the 23d of October. IRE L A N D. Belfast, Oct. 23. On Saturday last a Wo- man was found dead on the Point Fields, near this Town. On Enquiry it appeared that she had been forced into the Fields, and there ra- vished by Charles Waugh, Joseph Cherry, and William Bourk ; the two former were appre- hended, and committed to Carricfergus Gaol, in order to take their Trials for the said Facts. LONDON, Thursday, November 1. Yesterday Morning, about Ten, a prodigious Number of People, from all Quarters, crowded into Westminster Hall, which continued to fill till Noon, when Mr. Wilkes came into the Hall, attended by Mr. Sawbridge. Immediately on entering the Hall, Mr. Wilkes's Arrival was no- tified by three loud Huzzas; and being pro- claimed Chairman, he ascended the Stairs, and after informing the Company of the Intent of their Meeting, he read a Paper to them contain- ing the following Instructions to their Members: To the Right Honourable Earl PERCY, and Sir ROBERT BERNARD, Baronet. " WE, the Electors of the City and Liberty of Westminster, reflecting with the deepest Concern that all Addresses, Petitions, and Remonstrances from the People to the Throne, have of late been not only received with strong Marks of Disappro- bation, but proved entirely ineffectual, and that the Nation can have no Prospect of having their intolerable Grievances redressed by the Interposi- tion of their Sovereign, think it our Duty to direct and instruct you, our Representatives in Parliament, to endeavour, after the Manner of our great Ancestors, a constitutional Remedy for the many Evils we suffer, by impeaching in Parliament the Right Honourable Frederick North, commonly called Lord North, Chancellor of his Majesty's Exchequer, and First Commis- sioner of the Treasury, for that he the said Lord North did publicly in express Terms deny the Right of the Subject to petition the King for the Dissolution of Parliament, and afterwards used various Threats to prevent the legal Exercise of hat Right; and also that he the said Lord North advised the fatal Measure of imposing on the County of Middlesex, a Representative who was not chosen by the greater Part of the Freeholders of the said County, and employed unconstitu- tional Methods to carry it into Execution, by which the invaluable Right of Election, and the antient and fundamental Privileges of the People have been violated. We likewise direct and in- struct you to promote a parliamentary Enquiry in to the Foundation of the Reports which have read the most general Alarm, and been univer- sally credited, that he the said Lord North has exerted an undue and corrupt Influence over the legislative Body; that such Influence still con- sequence in the greatest Force ; that the Contempt in which this Nation is now held abroad, in Con- sequence of his Administration, has been the true Cause of the Insults we have received in Europe, and the Loss of our Territories in America ; and lastly, that he the said Lord North has been the Adviser of many pernicious Counsels, manifestly tending to sow Dissentions between the King and his People, at home and in the Colonies, to sap the public Credit of the Nation Abroad, and to destroy the first Principles of this free Govern- ment, and bring on a total Dissolution of this ex- ellent Constitution." Mr. Wilkes having read the Instructions, one Mr. More, late Under Clerk to the House of Commons, called out from the Middle of the Hall that he heard not one Word distinctly, except the Name of Lord North, and the Word Impeachment; and therefore desired the Instructions might be read aloud. Upon which Mr. More was brought up near the Chair, and appearing to have a loud Voice, was desired to read the Instructions himself, which he did, but attempting to give them an unfavourable Tone of Voice, he was universally condemned, hissed, and hooted. Mr. Sawbridge then stood forward, and harrangued the People with great Energy in a speech to the following Purport: " Gentlemen, " I must acquaint you that I think the pre- sent Instructions, impeaching Lord North, to be idle, nugatory, and ridiculous ; and I'll give you Reasons for thinking so. Lord North, hen he was not Minister, publicly declared, that if any Body that opposed Mr. Wilkes for the County of Middlesex, had but four Voices, should be the fitting Member. We are all Witnesses, Gentlemen, that he has kept his Word. Now let me ask you, at a Time when be is Minister, do any of you think his sequence is less? What then will your In- structions avail? They will be equally as absurd as desiring Lord North to impeach Lord North, as his Power cannot now be doubted, after the many Victories he has carried when it was not so great. Upon my Word, Gentlemen, I don't know a greater Piece of Service you can do the Minister, than impeaching him at present, as he will be sure of getting himself totally acquitted, and then it will be ever after out of our Power to impeach him for the same Offence a second Time. If you think his Power less in the Upper House, let us for a- while examine his Strength here: There are 26 Bishops, 16 Scotch Lords, Lords of the Bedchamber and Houshold out of Number, Secretaries of State, and the long Train of pensioned Lords, who are always at the Beck of a Minister: So that you see, by this imperfect Review, how in- effectual the Measure at present will be; it is therefore my Opinion, that we should drop it for the present. If you are convinced by the Reasons I have given you, and are of my Opi- nion against the Instructions, I then propose a Remonstrance. It is true your former Petitions to his Majesty have not succeeded ; but I intreat you not to be discouraged; for the People have never persevered in vain. It appears from our Histories that wise and good Princes have yielded easily and instantly to the Petitions of their People; weak and wicked Princes with more Difficulty and Delay, yet still at length even these last have been forced to yield. I cannot entertain so mean an Opinion of the present Prince upon the Throne as to believe he will always continue deaf to the Intreatries of as loyal and affectionate Subjects as ever any Prince before him had so thoroughly tried. I therefore reject this Proposal, as ineffectual, and would propose another Remonstrance in its Stead." A Remonstrance which was ready drawn up, was then read, and assented to; after which the Thanks of the Meeting were given separately to the Chairman, John Wilkes, Esq; and to Mr. Sawbridge. Thus ended the Convention of the Electors of the opulent and great City of Westminster. Not fewer than 1200 Persons were in the Hall. [ For a Copy of the Remon- strance, see the last Page of this Paper.] We are well informed that the Premier has declared within these few Days, that, " if he " continues to have the Sanction of a Great " Personage, he will go thorough Stitch with " Affairs, and bring them right at last, or lose " his Head." A Gentleman of this City was a few Days ago called on to give his Reasons for refusing to pay the Land- Tax, for his Estate in a cer- tain County, or suffer his Tenants to pay it ; he answered, That ha will never pay a Far- thing till he is legally represented in Parlia- ment, and that if his Tenants pay the Tax he will not allow it them again. A Correspondent says, that the Journey of a great Lady and her Son to the Continent, has cost upwards of 50,000l. exclusive of Presents made to humble Cousins and needy Relations, & c. which are supposed to amount to as much more. The People of Ireland are under the most alarming Apprehensions that their Parliament will never be suffered to fit again; and that the British Parliament will assume the Power of taxing Ireland as it has done the Colonies. A Ship arrived this Day from Philadelphia, brings Advice, that the principal Merchants of that City had agreed to import Goods from England on the same Terms with New- York, but not to commence till the 16th of January. The Royal Navy of Great- Britain consists of near 250 Men of War, from 20 to 100 Guus; of which 150 are Line- of- Battle Ships, car- rying not less than 50 Guns each. To man this truly respectable and glorious Navy, would require not fewer ( our Correspondent supposes) than 100,000 Men, exclusive of what would be further wanted to man the Sloops of War, Bombs, armed Cutters and Schooners, Yatchs, & c. Let the Enemies of Great- Britain read this Account, and tremble at the Consequences of insulting a Power that is able to send forth such an almost irresistable Force against them. It is believed the Ministry have a double View in being so assiduous in equipping the Navy ; first to humble the Pride and Impudence of the Spaniards, and also to be prepared to bring the American Colonies to a due Sense of their Duty. It is now said the Duke of Cumberland will have the Command of the Fleet intended for the Mediterranean. The Evils attending the Exportation of Grain, & c. will be laid before an august Assembly, at the approaching Meeting. Among other Regulations which the present Emperor of Germany has introduced for the Good of his People, one is, that he has set apart one Day in every Week for the receiving Petitions, and hearing Grievances; at which Time he has strictly commanded that no Sub- ject, however mean, shall be refused Admit- tance to his Presence.--- An Example this well worthy the Imitation of every Sovereign Prince in Europe. It is said the Duke of Grafton has a certain Utensil in his Bed- Chamber, which he con- stantly uses, at the Bottom of which is the Fi- gure of Mr. Wilkes. On the other Hand Mr. Wilkes, from whom some say he borrowed the Thought, it is certain, has a whole Set for the Use of his Family, with the Figure of a Great Lady in Pall- Mall. The following Incident is delivered as a Fact by a Writer in this Day's Gazetteer.---- Passing by the House of Mr. Lewis, Plate- Glass Grinder, the upper End of Great Queen- Street, Lin- coln's Inn Fields, on Saturday Night last, about Eight o' Clock, I was alarmed by a Noise that proceeded from the Workshop below his House, and, on looking down, I perceived about a Dozen ill- looking Fellows, who call them- selves a Press Gang, insisting on Mr. Lewis's going along with them, which he refused, imagining that, as a Housekeeper, a Man in very extensive Business, and of good Credit and Fortune, they had no Right to force him ; but these Gentlemen loon convinced him of his Error; for, after twisting their Hands in his Neckcloth, so as to make him look black in the Face, and almost choak him, they dragged him, with the utmost Brutality and Violence, up the Stairs into the Street, where he at- tempted again to speak, but, from the Tight- ness of his Neckcloth, found that impossible ; on which he took fast hold of the Iron Rails be- fore his Door, where these merciless Russians beat him with their Bludgeons on his Hands, to make him loose his Hold ; which having ef- fected, they forced him away down the Street, God knows where, without suffering him to speak a single Word to his terrified Family. To aggravate the Atrociousness of the Act; I neither saw Lieutenant, Constable, nor any other Officer with them. In short, the Bruta- lity and Violence with which this Scene was conducted, cannot be equalled by the Execu- tion of the most arbitrary Act in a despotic Government. Last Friday Morning, between Five and Six o'Clock, a Robbery was committed in the House of Mr. Burges, in Broad- Street, near the Royal Exchange, by a Gang of Villains, who wrenched off the Hinges of the Kitchen Window, and by that Means loosened the Bar which went across, and got Admittance; they broke open all the Servants Tea Chests, which they emptied into a Bag, and took away seve- ral Capuchins, Hats, Shoes, & c. belonging to the Servants, and all the Linnen which they found in the Kitchen, together with a Sha- r green Cafe of Silver- handled Knives and Forks, several Table and Desert Spoons, and other Articles; after which they went into Mr. Bur- ges's Bedchamber with a lighted Candle, who, awaking at the Noise, jumped out of Bed, and pursued them ; but they ran down London- Wall, and escaped. Tuesday Night, about Eight o'Clock, as a Rider to a wholesale Dealer of this City was coming to Town, out of the North, he was stopped at the Bottom of Highgate Hill, by two Highwaymen, who presented their Pistols to his Head, and then robbed him of what Cash he had, to the Amount of between forty and fifty Pounds, but happily missed his Poc- ket Book, in which were Notes to a very con- siderable Amount. For Fear he should follow them, they took him off his Horse, which they turned loose, then tied his Hands and Legs with strong Cords, and in that Condition left him, and rode off towards Highgate. A poor Man meeting the Horse, stopped him, think- ing that the Owner had fallen off, but found the Rider lying on his Back, whom he released, and they went in Pursuit of the Fellows, but could not come up with them. Extract of a Letter from Hampton, in Glou- cestershire, Oct. 28. " Yesterday a very smart Pursuit was made through this Town, after one Remington, a Person who had a Copper- plate engraved at Bir- mingham, of two different Kinds of Tickets in the Irish Schemes ; the one for an Alms- house in Dublin, and the other for an Hospital and In- firmary at Belfast. The Impressions taken off this Plate he vends and sells as genuine, and thereby defrauds the Purchasers, to the general Discredit of the Irish Schemes, which are to- tally the Support of all the public Charities in that poor, though heavily pensioned Kingdom. The Gentlemen who endeavoured to detect the Villain, I understand, came here from Ireland solely on that Account, that his Attempt to cheat the Public might be rendered ineffectual." 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.

Which contains many INTERESTING Particulars that have not yet appeared in any other Country Paper. Arrived the French, Holland, and Flanders Mails. Petersburgh, October 5. LIEUTENANT - COLONEL Vol- koff is arrived here Express from General Tottleben, with Advice of the taking; of the important Town of Cotatis by Assault. The Turkish Garrison were put to the Sword, so that our Troops were able to make only 170 Prisoners besides setting at Liberty the Janerettes and other Christians in the City. They took more- over four Pair of Colours, seventeen Cannon, and a large Quantity of warlike Stores. Gen. Tottleben had blocked up the Town for some Time, but the Turks defending themselves obstinately, he battered the Castle in Breach, and carried the Place Sword in Hand. Petersburgh, Oct. 10. Yesterday arrived here an Express, dispatched by Count Panin, with Advice that Count Prosorowsky had found Means- to draw three thousand of the Garrison of Oczakow into an Ambuscade, who were all cut to Pieces, or made Prisoners, except four hundred Men, who escaped by Flight, aban- doning to the Russians three Pieces of Cannon and several Pairs of Colours. From the Loner Rhine, Oct. 19. Private, but authentic Letters from Lisbon, mention that the Portuguese Minister had publicly declared, that he will not give any Satisfaction to the English, with respect to the violent Proceed- ings against Mr. Connel, a Merchant of that Nation. In fact, it is very evident that the Court of Lisbon means to support the Family Compact, and is daily making Advances to a political League with the Courts of Madrid and Versailles. They even go so far in public Companies of Merchants at Lisbon, as to de- clare, that they value not the Continuance of their commercial Connections with England ; but propose to indemnify themselves, in case of any Coolness or Rupture with the English, by a new Treaty of Commerce with France. COUNTRY NEWS. Gloucester, Nov. 5. On Friday last was held, at the Booth- Hall in this City, a Meeting of the Justices and Deputy Lieutenants of this County, in consequence of an Advertisement from the Lord Lieutenant, when his Lordship communicated to them two Orders of Council he had received relative to the Impressing all straggling Seamen, as well as other proper Men for the Service of his Majesty's Navy. Several Difficulties appeared in putting the Order of Council into Execution, which were therefore desired to be communicated ; and tho' the Justices were ready to lend their Assistance in taking up all straggling Seamen, they were un- willing to ail in any Respect that might tend to abridge the Liberty of the Subject. On Saturday last Thomas Herbert, Esq; was elected Member for Ludlow, in the Room of his late Father, without Opposition. LONDON, Saturday, Nov. 3. A Report now prevails at the Court End of the Town, that the Marquis of Rockingham will soon occupy a considerable Department in Administration. We hear that a Great Lady, since her Ar- rival from Abroad, has made Presents to several of the Nobility. Three C Is have been held at Kew since the Arrival of a great Lady. The last is said to have turned on the Westminster Instructions and Remonstrance. It is said that a Common- Hall will be held in Guildhall before the Meeting of Parliament, for the Purpose of taking into Consideration some further Measures thought necessary to be pursued, towards procuring a Redress of Griev- ances. It is confidently reported, that the Free holders of Middlesex arc to try the Force of Remonstrating once more ! It is said that Mr. Wilkes's Conduct in the City, in his magisterial Capacity, in regard to the Light in which he holds Press- Warrants and his Procedure thereupon, has given great Disgust at C—- t. We are likewise informed that there has been a Consultation on the above Subject, and it has been deemed a Contempt of the K — g and P y C l. Mr. Wilkes observed, upon his Return on Wednesday last to the King's- Arms, in New Palace Yard, from Westminster- Hall, " that " he always should most chearfully submit his " Opinion to the Majority of his Friends, but " he feared the present Remonstrance would " have no more Effect than the former, and be " only another Paper Kite for his Royal High- " ness the Prince of Wales." Lord Bute, it is confidently said, is now at the Court of Madrid in Disguise. Her Royal Highness the Princess Dowager of Wales has brought over a Clock and Case of most curious and uncommon Workmanship; the Dial Plate is set with Diamonds, and the Pillars are solid Gold. She has presented it to his Majesty. We hear a Noble Duke has generously de- clared, that he will discharge all the just Debts of the Marquis his Son. It is said that Mr. Calcraft has got under- written exactly 47,000l. on the late Marquis of Granby's Life, and that the Sum advanced by him to his Lordship, was about 83,000l. so that Mr. C—' s Loss by the Marquis's Death, will be 36,000l. It is assured the Spaniards have now at the Havannah and Hispaniola eighteen Ships of the Line, ready manned and equipped for Sea, besides a Number of Land Forces. The Advices received this Week in the Pac- ket from Lisbon confirm all the former Ac- counts respecting the British Merchants ; and add, that their Grievances are rather increased than diminished. A private Letter from the same Place says, that six of the capital Merchants there were collecting their Effects, and preparing to re- turn forthwith to England. By authentic Letters from Brest, received Yesterday, we can assure the Public, that every Subject of Great Britain was ordered out of that Sea Port. Orders are given for all the Crews of the Men of War that arrive from foreign Stations, to be turned over on board the Guard- ships, in order to complete the different Squadrons going Abroad. Notwithstanding the great Number of Press- Warrants that have been issued, and the Vi- gour with which they have been carried into Execution, we arc credibly informed that the Number of Seamen obtained by them, and even by his Majesty's Bounties, as Volunteers, do not in the whole amount to five Thousand. Letter from Dublin, October 28. The People of this Kingdom, tired out at length by the repeated Insults offered to their Liberties, in the Suspension of some of their most useful Laws, and the Dread of losing their Representation, have come to a Resolution of laying their Complaints before the Throne; from his Majesty's known Goodness of Heart, he will redress those Grievances that would dis- grace the most arbitrary Government. Dr. Lucas, our Irish Wilkes, has as usual stepped forward in this Act of Patriotism, and has written a Letter to the Lord Mayor for the Use of the Hall, for the Purpose of convening the Freemen. The Aldermen, who are always in Opposition to the Doctor, decry this Mea- sure as much as they can, but it is generally thought their Opposition will have little Weight, as the Friends of Liberty are very nu merous and respectable, and seem to be tho- roughly in earnest." We hear that the Viceroy of a neighbouring Kingdom, on finding the Increase of popular Clamour, has, to appease the Malecontents, and to avert their Anger, with respect to him- self, drawn a Portrait lately of a Lord Lieu- tenant in his own Person, with both his Hands tied behind him. The Pay of the three Regiments of Foot Guards, no Part of which have been employed in actual Service these ten Years ( except in St. George's Fields) is an Expence to the Nation of 10 5788I. 15s. per Annum. It is said there is now upwards of Half a Million of Silver in the Bank of England. ----- Query, Whose Fault is it then that the Public are so exceedingly distressed for Want of Silver Coin ? A Correspondent just arrived from America, informs us, that notwithstanding the Bostonians have made so great a Clamour, and have com- plained so much, among other Grievances, of the Want of Specie, that more than three or four Ships have, not long since, been fitted out from thence to trade with France and Spain for every Commodity they wanted, for which the Bostonians have made Returns in Moidores, Guineas, and Half Guineas. Oliver Cromwell's Navigation Act was very wisely contrived to perpetuate an Union be- tween England and the Colonies ; by this the Colonists were obliged to purchase all Things they stood in Need of from the Mother Coun- try, and were prohibited by Penalties from trading with the Dutch, French, Spaniards, & c. Many wise Men thought this Prohibition a sufficient Tax. Mr. Grenville, who contrived deprive the Americans of Spanish Dollars, thought very differently ; our present wife Ad- ministration pursue the essential Part of that Minster's Scheme, a Mode of Taxation grie- vous and disagreeable to the People, and of no Consequence to the Revenue. It is reported that the Widow Bigby has withdrawn her Appeal in the Case of the two Kennedys, and that she retired last Week to settle in the Country, having lately received from a Banker in Westminister 350l. Yesterday an impressed Man was carried be- fore Mr. Alderman Oliver, at Guildhall, who discharged him. The Gentleman in Great Queen- Street, that was on Saturday last taken from his own Shop by a Press- Gang ( who, it seems, came after one of the Journeymen, but who having es- caped over a Wall in the Yard, they took the Master) has received a Letter from the Lords of the Admiralty, offering him Protections for that Journeyman and his whole Family during the War, if he would not prosecute one of the Gang now in Custody for the above illegal Act. The Gentleman has answered, that he should not accept the offered Protection, but would himself take Care of his Family; and that their Lordships might depend on his Perseverence in seeking Redress from the Laws of his Country, in order to prevent in future such daring In- fringements on the Liberty of the Subject. During the late War, a Lieutenant of a Press- Gang imprudently laid hold of an Officer belonging to the Lord Mayor of this City ; upon which an Action was commenced against him, and he was sentenced to stand in the Pil- lory, to pay a Fine of 500I. and to be impri- soned for the Space of seven Years. Extract of a Letter from Warsaw, Oct. 3. " The Plague having penetrated to a Town named Zeleszeriki, on the Frontiers of Mol- davia, belonging to the hereditary Dominions of his Majesty, some superstitious Wretches persuaded several of the lower Class, that the best Means to preserve themselves from the Con- tagion, would be to draw out the Teeth from the dead Carcases, and to suck their Blood. This loathsome Method has been put in Prac- tice, and caused many to perish, notwith- standing every Method taken by the Magistrates to put a stop to it. This Account, incredible as it may appear, is attested by the most au- thentick Advices." On Thursday a Woman in the Old Bailey received the following Letter from her Hus- band, who was gone to his Garden near Isling- ton : —" Dear Wife, Before this reaches you I shall be no more: The Weight of my Misfor- tunes, which I have brought upon myself by my criminal Intercourse with Mrs. D , I am not able to bear any longer, and am there- fore determined to quit a Life that for some Years has been but of little Use to you or my Children.

AS the present Season is deemed more suitable for the INOCULATION of the SMALL- POX than the extreme Heat of Summer, I take this Liberty of informing the Public, that I shall continue the Practice thereof, as usual; and as my Method of treating that Distemper lias been so evidently blessed with Success, that not one unfavourable Symptom hath appeared in any of my Patients, I hope for future Encouragement.

B. FEILD. Bromsgrove, Oct. 30, 1770.

THURSDAY'S POST. ( By EXPRESS from LONDON.) Yesterday arrived a Mail from HOLLAND. Lisbon, October 2. A Yacht is just arrived here from Rio Janiero, in 75 Days, with impor- tant Dispatches from our Viceroy to the Court. It brings Advice of such Hostilities having been com- menced by the Spaniards against the English in the River Plate, as they think must end in a Rupture between the two Nations. In con- sequence of these Proceedings, our Governor has demanded Instructions for his future Beha- viour, in case of a War. A Report is general here, that several English Ships have appeared off an Island near Buenos Ayres. SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, 0ct. 31. Monday se'nnight came down his Majesty's most gracious Pardon to James Duncan, condemned at Aberdeen last Circuit. He is, in forty Days, to banish him- self out of Great Britain and Ireland, under the usual Certification. A few Days ago there was taken up in the Garden of the Right Honourable the Lord Chief Baron, at Dean, a Root of the Plant of the true Rhubarb, ( the Seeds of which Doctor Mounsey brought to this Country from China) which weighed no less than 35 Pounds. The Acquisition of this valuable Plant will cer- tainly prove of very great Advantage to Bri- tain, on Account of the vast Quantity of its Roots used in Medicine in this Country. COUNTRY NEWS. Reading, Nov. 3. At Winchester Fair, on Wednesday, one Fenton, a Taylor, was taken into Custody for stealing three Pair of new Shoes from a Stall, and sent to the House of Correction. Since his Commitment the House of his Mother, with whom he lodged ( an in- firm Woman, upwards of ninety Years old, who always appeared to be in very necessitous Circumstances) was searched, and the follow- ing Cash, & c. found therein, viz. tied up in Bag 100l. in Cash; wrapped in a Handker- chief 36l. in a Pincushion 18 Guineas; Lin- nen to the Value of 80l. twelve Pair of new Stays; thirty- six red and black Cardinals; seven Pair of new Blankets; nineteen new Shifts; a large Quantity of new quilted Petti- coats ; several new Beds; a great deal of new and old Plate, with the Names thereon erased ; Abundance of new and old Pewter, Tea Ket- tles, Brass and Iron Candlesticks, Knives, Scis- sars, Snuff- Boxes, & c. It seems this Woman hath received constant Relief from the Parish of Sunning, in this County, where she is a Pa- rishoner, for many Years past. LONDON, Tuesday, Nov. 6. It is now positively said at the West End of the Town, that a respectable Part of the pre- sent Armament will, in a few Days, be dis- patched for the Tagus, to procure a full Satis- faction for the many Injuries done to our Com- merce, by the most ungrateful Court of Por- tugal, whose Country we have saved in Times of War and Famine. There is no Question so often asked, as, " Shall we have Peace or War?" The best Answer, though obvious, does not always oc- cur. Whatever is most foolish, most absurd, and most wicked, that will the Ministers most certainly do. News- paper Authority is some- times erroneous; but, for once, and though upon an important Question, let News- paper Authority have a little Weight. It then is very certain, and the Public ought to know it, that the Princess of Wales, Lord Mansfield, and Lord North, are for Peace. The K. was some Time ago inclined to resent the lnsult of taking Falkland's Island, but since the Return of his Mother, he is not so determined. How- ever, Lord Rochford, who knows the secret Disposition of the Court of Spain, having for- merly been our Ambassador there some Time, is for War. Whether Hecate, and her Scotch Laird, are to preserve their Influence over the most important Concerns of this Country, is now the Question. One of the first Questions that Hecate asked, after her Return home, was, " Whether the Majority had been properly secured ?" To which her Minister made Answer, " Madam, it has; no Pains or Expence has been spared." " That's well," she said. Words to the following Effect, unless they should be altered, we are told, will appear in a certain Oration : " Fresh Assurances of a Desire to preserve the general Tranquility."— " Determined to maintain the Honour of my Crown." It is said a certain Speech to be delivered next Week, is to begin with " The Plague From what is now generally said, it is to be concluded that there will be a very hard Strug- gle on the first Day of the Meeting of a certain Assembly, on the Address. The declared Op- ponents of the Ministry being somewhat in- creased in Number, and certain Circumstances having occurred since the last Sessions, as, when explained, is expected to bring over many others. Next to the Address, the present State of our foreign Concerns, is, we are assured, to be the first Subject that will be brought under Consideration in a certain Place, by the Op- position. It is said Lord Chatham has a Plan for ac- commodating all domestic Differences, which his Lordship will read in the House of Lords soon after the Opening of the ensuing Session of Parliament. We hear that there is an Affair likely to be made public very soon, respecting some De- ficiencies or Embezzlement of Money by the Officers of a Commission Board, under an Act of Parliament, which is expected to make a great Noise. Stocks are again tumbling down, which lead many People to conjecture, that notwithstanding every Report to the contrary, we are on the immediate Eve of a War. Large Bets are depending, that there is not an English Ship freighted from any Part of Portugal after Lady Day next. It is certain, that both the Spaniards and Portuguese are exporting Stores of all Kinds to their Settlements in Africa and America in vast Quantities. They write from Guernsey, that the greatest Naval Preparations are now making in every Sea- port in France, which is confirmed by the Arrival of every Vessel from France. Letters from Brest mention, that the French are very industrious there in compleating such Ships as yet remain unfinished in the Docks, and in preparing those for Service which are in the Harbour. An additional Number of Arti- ficers are employed in the Yards, and strict Orders have been issued to permit none to enter into the Marine Yards but their Artificers and Surveyors, who have a written Permit from the Commandant, which is to be shewn to the Officer on Duty before ever they can gain Admittance. Letter from Cadiz, oct. 12. " Notwithstanding the Endeavours made Use of by the French Court to accommodate Mat- ters between England and Spain, it seems at present out of their Power to do it, as the lat- ter has absolutely declared that they will not comply with the Demands of the British Court, especially to that Part of delivering up Falk- land's Island, and paying for fitting out and manning so vast a Fleet; a List of which has been sent hither with their Names and Num- ber of Guns, & c. for we are as well acquainted with what you are doing in your Dock- Yards, & c. as you who live upon the Spot. Advice has been received here that a Spanish Man of War of 70 Guns has fallen in with and sunk one of his Britannic Majesty's Frigates, sup- posed to be the Alarm : If this Intelligence should prove true, there can be no longer a Doubt but such a Step taken by the Spaniards will immediately bring on a War. This Ac- count is confirmed by an Officer who is arrived here from Madrid, who says he saw the Lieu- tenant of the Man of War arrive there with the Account. He pretended to say, that it was done by Mistake, as the English Vessel had hoisted Algerine Colours." It is reported that Advices of a very interest- ing Nature, relative to the Colonies, have lately been transmitted from North America. Wednesday the 3d of October was appointed to be observed at Boston as a Day of Prayer, to seek the Favour and Direction of the Almighty. Great Apprehensions have been entertained, within these few Days, for the Safety of the Supervisors bound to India. It is said that a Body of Gentlemen, not fewer than 60 in Number, at a Meeting held in the City on Friday Evening, came to the unanimous Resolution of not paying any Land- Tax this Year. We hear that the celebrated Irish Patriot, Dr. Lucas, is shortly expected in London, from Dublin, in order to lay a Complaint of an ex- traordinary Nature before a Great Personage. From the Preparations making against the Lord Mayor's Day ( Friday next) it is thought there will be as grand a Shew as ever appeared on the like Occasion. It is said that the Lord Mayor Elect is de- termined to adopt the same Measures in the Execution of his Office, as the late Mr. Beck- ford did. The Case lately prepared by the City Solici- tor, respecting the Conduct of the Companies of Goldsmiths, Weavers, and Grocers, in re- fusing to obey the Lord Mayor's Precept for a Common Hall, was on Friday read before the Committee appointed to consider of the same, and being approved, a Copy thereof ( the same consisting of upwards of 100 Sheets of Paper) was directed to be given to each of the four following Council for their Opinion and Ad- vice thereon ; to wit, Mr. Wedderburne, Mr. Serjeant Glynn, Mr. Dunning, and Mr. Com- mon Serjeant. A certain patriotic Alderman has given po- sitive Orders to the several Constables of his Ward on no Account to assist the enforcing Press Warrants. It is said an Order will be passed in Council for the Encouragement of Sailors serving on board Privateers, that for the future they shall not lose their Wages, in case the Ship should be cast away. George Grenville, Esq; is attended by Dr. Duncan and Dr. Fothergill, but there are no Hopes of his Recovery. His Grace the Duke of Argyle lies speechless at his House in Soho- Square. The Right Hon. the Earl of Egmont is dan- gerously ill at his House in Pall- Mall. This Morning the two Kennedys were brought into the Court of King's Bench in Westminster Hall, when Mr. Serjeant Glynn moved, That the Merits of the Appeal brought by Ann Bigby might be entered into. Mr. Wallace, as Counsel for the Kennedys, then moved, That the Appellant should appear to make good her Charge against the Defendants. Proclamation was accordingly made in Court for that Purpose, when the Appellant not ap- pearing, she was nonsuited. Copy of a Letter from a Gentleman at Boston to his Friend in London. " Dear Sir, Boston, Sept. 30. " I wrote to you Yesterday per Capt. Jacob- son. This acquaints you that I have this Moment received from Newbury ( by Express) an Account of the Death of the dear, dear, never to be forgotten Friend, that eminent and faithful Servant of Jesus Christ, dear Mr. Whitefield, who died this Morning at Six o'Clock, at Newbury ; the Particulars of which I cannot inform you at present, only that it was very sudden." The Right Hon, the Earl of Hillsborough, Secretary of State for the Colonies, is now building three Churches on his Estate, in the County of Down, in the North of Ireland, at his Lordship's own Expence ; one at Hillsbo- rough, another at Clanduff, near Newry ; and another at a Place called Aunthalt. The two latter are almost finished, and that at Hillsbo- rough will be finished in less than a Year. Some further Particulars relative to the taking of Bender, which arrived by Letters Yesterday, are as follow : The Town, upon a Signal given, was attacked in three different Places; the Gar- rison defended themselves valiantly, and dis- puted every Inch of Ground with great Perse- verance; when they were beaten from their Trenches, they fought from Street to Street in the Town, and withstood the Russians for five Hours after they took the Citadel. The Garrison consisted at the Beginning of the Siege of near thirty thousand Men, but at the Time of the Assault were reduced to near half that Number; four hundred Cannon were found in the Town, besides an immense Booty. Baron Stein, who resided in London about five Years since, and Col. Maller, were both killed in the Attack. We hear a Machine for bolting Meal has been laid before the Society of Arts, & c. it separates the Corn at one Operation into fine Flour, second Flour, Pollard, and Bran, and dispatches the Work with great Expedition. Yesterday a Black, who had been at Sea, went to be married to a white Woman, at St. Olave's Church, Tooley- Street ; but while the Ceremony was performing, an Officer with a Press Gang came in to take the Man away ; the Clergyman insisted that he should not take him till the Ceremony was gone through ; up- on which the Minister was insulted, and the Officer of the Gang was taken into Custody, carried before the Sitting Justices at St. Mar- garet's Hill, and obliged to give Bail for his Appearance.

The humble Address, Remonstrance, and Petition, of the ELECTORS of the City and Liberty of WESTMINSTER. " May it please your Majesty, AS long as we have any Confidence left in the Integrity of your Majesty's Intentions, and in the Sincerity of your Declarations, we cannot cease most humbly, though earnestly, to implore your Royal interposition in Behalf of a loyal and much injured People. We have already petitioned your Majesty for a Dissolution of the present Parliament. That Power is wisely and incontestibly placed by the Constitution in your Majesty, for the Benefit of your People. There are but two Situations in which it can be exercised— either when the People are dissatisfied, or when they are satisfied with the Conduct of their Representatives. If your Ma- jesty means wholly to decline this Power, as irre- concileable with the Principles of the Constitution, the People will lose a constitutioual Remedy. If your Majesty means to retain it, and to exercise it only in the latter Case, as it has been very recently, and without any Scruple, exercised over the American Assemblies, it can never be a Benefit, but, on the contrary, must be a grievous Injury to your Subjects. Your faithful City and Liberty of Westminster, do therefore most earnestly implore your Majesty to exert it now, when the whole Kingdom is most justly and generally offended with the Conduct of this Parliament. " With the most dutiful Respect to your Ma- jesty, and with the most inviolable Attachment to your Royal Person and Family, we beg Leave to represent to your Majesty, that the Redress of every Grievance, the Security of all our violated Rights, the Relief of all our Suffering, the Prayer of every Petition, the Restoration of Unanimity, Harmony, and Peace ( so often recommended by your Majesty from the Throne) are all intirely in your Majesty's Power to bestow; for the Injuries we have sustained, and the Evils of which we com- plain, have been voted and produced by your Ma - jesty's own Ministers, Officers, and Servants, and by those Members of Parliament, especially who are under the immediate Influence of the Crown. " Your Majesty has long been so happily situated, as to have a Choice of Means to give Redress and Contentment to your People; either by removing such of your Servants who have done the Wrong ( instead of dismissing those who refused their Concurrence) or by dissolving the present Parliament: That so, since no adequate Provision has hitherto been made to prevent the Crown and its Ministers from chusing all their Servants and Dependants from amongst the Representatives of the People, the People by a fresh Election may have an Opportunity of chusing for their Repre- sentatives those who shall not be the Servants and Dependants of the Crown and its Ministers. " By the Choice of independent, unbiassed, and real Representatives of the People, and by the Measures which such Men will naturally take for our Security, we trust, under the good Providence of God, that we shall not continue to fee in this Kingdom Electors denied the Right of Election, Juries denied the Right of Judgement, and Pe- titioners denied the Right of Complaint."

Whoever casts an Eye on the Contents of this Work, will see that our noble Author has considered his Subject in every different Light in which a thorough Knowledge of Chemistry could enable him to view it: And though Reasoning without Experiments is seldom of much Use in practical Arts; yet Reasoning founded on real Science, and derived from former Experiments, may often enable an ingenious Husbandman to draw useful Conclusions even from unsuccessful Experiments. In this Respect we doubt not but that the above Work may be of great Utility. Foreign Nations have exr pressed their Approbation of it, by translating it into their Languages; and we hope it will not be less, relished here, where every Improvement in Agriculture meets with the kindest Reception. If regularly taken, and properly continued, infallibly cures the above Disorders, when all other Medicines so much recommended in the News Papers have failed : In confirmation of the very great Efficacy of this Medicine we have, from a Number of Cures, selected the following remarkable one, and any Person desirous of further Information may, by applying to F. Newberry, at the Corner of St. Paul's Church- Yard, London, be referred to many People who have happily experienced its good Effects. To Dr. RYSSEEG.
