THURSDAY, March 7, 1,771. SATURDAY's POST. COUNTRY NEWS. Bristol, February 28. LAST Week there was a very tragical Affair transacted in the Parish of St. Mary Redcliss, in this City, not wholly dissimilar to that of Sir John Dineley Goodier, some Years since ; and there is great Rea son to believe that, had it not been for the Vi- gilance of two Gentlemen, who were timely acquainted therewith, it would have termina- ted as dreadfully. — The Sequel is as follows: A young Fellow, who had lived a very profli- gate Life, and had been supported by an in- dulgent Aunt ( at whose Death he expected a considerable Patrimony) not satisfied with her repeated Kindness, and fearing left she should live top long, took an Opportunity one Even- ing, as the Lady was going to Bed, to force her out of her House into a Chaise, and stop- ping her Mouth with a Handkerchief, to prevent her crying out, carried her off into Kingswood, to a Place he had previously prepared for her Reception; when he returned arid rifled her Drawers, & c. of Money, Plate, and other Valuables to a considerable Amount. But next Day, the Lady, very providentially, was found, and brought to Town, who lodged an Information against the Villain, and being taken by Virtue of a Warrant, he is now under Confinement, to take his Trial at the next Assize. LONDON, Thursday, Feb. 28. Tuesday the Order, was read in, the Lower Assembly at the Robin Hood, for the Atten- dance of the Printers; and upon being called, and not attending, it was moved, " That for their Contempt in not, obeying the Orders of the House for their Attendance, they, be taken into the Custody of the Serjeant at Arms, or his Deputy." The Numbers were, 160 for the Motion, and 17 against it. Yesterday the House of Commous went upon the Nullum Tempus Bill, the Debates were long and interesting, many Speeches being made both for and against the intended Amendment; at Nine o'Clock a Motion was made for the Speaker to quit the Chair, and the House to form itself into a Cornoittee, but the previous Question being put, the, Lobby was cleared, and they divided, when Sir James Lowther carried it by nine Votes, the Numbers were 164 to 155 ; as the Majority were going into the House again, a Gentleman who was no Member, and whose Name was Hunt, mixed with them and went in; being- almost immediately discovered, he was ordered into Custody, and the House divided a second Time, when the Numbers were as be- fore; when the Division was over, Mr. Hunt was. called to the. Bar of the House and ques- tioned by the Speaker why he came in; he answered he did it for no other Reason than in Hopes of getting into the Gallery ; he was then asked what Members he knew; he replied, he was acquainted with several; among others, he was known by Mr. Dunning and Serjeant Glynn, and he ought to be known to the Speaker, for he had been his Client upwards of twenty Years. The House considering his coming in as an Act of Inadvertency, more than designed Offence, he was ordered to be dis- charged, and then ( it being Half past Eleven) the House broke up. A certain witty Earl was lately offered the Government of a neighbouring Kingdom, which be repeatedly declined, with proper Acknow- ledgement for the Favour intended him; the Minister however still continued to press it upon him moil strongly, and told him at last, that he must go there, as the Nation was in a Flame. This is the very Reason, replied the Earl, that I will not go; for I'll be d- n'd if you shall burn me in your political Conflagrations. The Desertion of an I— h P— r, who has the Honour of being Father to the popular Member for M x, from the Cause of Administra- tion, proceeds, we are told, from the inadequate Return made to his Babe for the Risque of his Life, and Sacrifice of his Reputation in that Affair. It is assured, that besides the ministerial Fa- vours expected by the received Representative of the first C—— y in England, the judicious C....... l made the Vacation of his Borough in the West very advantageous as a private Trans- action, receiving 3000 Guineas for resigning his Seat, and sitting in the Lap of a popular Alder- man for less than Fifteen Hundred, Yesterday the Racruite lately railed for Col. Burgoyne's Regjment of Light Dragoons were disbaned. They were allowed twelve Days' Pay to bear their Expences hone, besides Half a Guinea Bounty Money from the King. The like is to be followed by all the Regiments of Dragoons. By a Gentleman of Veracity, just arrived from France, we learn that there is all the Rea- son in the World to believe that a Civil War will very shortly happen in that Kingdom. Yesterday Noon was held a very numerous and respectable General Court of Proprietors of East India Stock, at their House in Leaden- hall- Street, agreeable to a printed Advertise- ment for that Purpose. The Directors took the Inside of the Bar at Twelve o'Clock, and after the Clerk had, as usual, read over the Minutes of the last General Court, the Chair- man acquainted them, " That this Meeting was called at the written Request of nine Pro- prietors ( the Names of whom the Clerk after- wards read) for the Purpose of enquiring into the Nature of a Bill, now depending in Parlia- ment, entitled, A Bill for the more effectually recruiting the Company's Forces abroad." Mr. Orme then made a Request that the Bill should be read, which was done accordingly, and con- tained in Substance, " That his Majesty, by " the Consent of his Parliament, should be " empowered to raise a Body of Troops ( to be " paid by the Company) not exceeding 2000 " Men, 600 of whom may be Foreigners, with " 32 Officers, to be employed in recruiting " and disciplining Soldiers for the East India " Company's Service, and to continue in Force " for three Years." The Bill being thus read, Mr. Orme ob- served, " That he had considered this with some Attention, and in whatever Light he viewed it, it appeared to him to be surrounded with unconstitutional Principles. One Clause, says Mr. Orme, in particular, appears to me to give the Crown, whenever it thinks fit to ask it, a Power to send these Troops abroad to In- dia. What then will be the Consequence? An Increase of the Military is at all Times a deli- cate Point, and should only be made in ex- treme Necessity. Here then is not only an In- crease of 2000 Men to strengthen the Hands of Government, but, 6oo of those, with, their Of- ficers, are to be foreign Mercenaries, who, de- stitute of all national Feelings, are ready to act for the best Paymaster; an Event which should be as much alarming to Englishmen, as Proprietors of this Honourable Company." He therefore concluded with the following Mo- tion : " That whereas a Bill is now depending " in Parliament, intitled, A Bill for the more ef- " fectually recruiting the Company's Forces abroad, " that it is the Request of this General Court " to Parliament, that such a Bill do not pass " into a Law." Mr. Dempster seconded Mr. Orme. He observed, " That by this Bill passing into a Law, it would give the Hands of Government a Power that may, in Time, perhaps annihilate the Company ; that the Gentleman who spoke last, very judiciously observed, that there was a Clause in the Bill, which empowered Go- vernment to send those Forces, at any Time they thought proper, out to India, where, be- ing under their Direction, they may engross what Power they thought proper. Another Objection, he observed, against the Bill, was, that as there was no specific Sum mentioned, it empowered the Secretary at War to draw upon the Company for what indefinite Sums he thought proper ; so that all the Power, all the Riches the Company have for many Years been acquiring, may, by the Conduct of an uncon- stitutional Minister, be usurped and dissipated. If Reasoning will not satisfy you, continues Mr. Dempster, let us look back to History ; there we shall find our great Deliverer, King William the Third, striving with all his Power to obtain of his Parliament the Permission of his Dutch Guards; but his Desire was over- ruled, as infringing on the Birthrights of Eng- lishmen, though the Request was made at the Conclusion of an honourable War ........ a War concluded so by the Consequence of his Victo- ries. For God's Sake ! then, let us be at least as tenacious of our Liberties as our Ancestors, and not suffer these Mercenaries, under the Direction of Government, to sweep away what this Company has been so many Years esta- blishing." Mr. Sulivan favoured the Bill, by saying, " That in carrying it to Parliament it could be attended with no Danger on the one Side, and that on the other it must be productive of some Good, as it would fix the Mode of recruiting on a much more proper and beneficial Footing to the Company than the present Mode, which was obnoxious to almost all Ranks of People." Mr. Creighton, in Opposition to the Bill, inveighed against it as evasive and injurious; and said, " It was formed for the Purpose of subjugating that Company to Government; that, for his Part, he could not find out what Gentlemen saw in the proposed Alteration of Recruiting, except that they were captivated with, the Tattoo of a Drum in Preference to the Mode already established ; he joined Issue, he said, that there were some Practices in the present Recruiting not altogether justifiable; but then they were better to be tolerated, than fall into this Snare, that bid fair to he the Ruin of the Company." Mr. Cornwall next spoke. He observed, " That the Question, in its present Form, was not competent enough to establish a Petition to Parliament; because the Nature of the Petition must be, to set aside the Bill in general, an Ob- ject, he believed, which was not the Sense of the Company. The honourable Gentleman ( says he) who spoke second in the Debate [ Mr. Dempster] has, with great Oratory, shewn the ill Effects of trusting Government too much, both from Theory and historical Precedent; and I do agree with him in thinking this Com- pany was treated most injuriously in the Year 1767, when they gave up to Government the Sum of 400,0001. on Condition of their grant- ing them an Increase of Dividend, by their taking that which respected their own Interest, and clapping a Negative on the other;— yet I must differ from him when he says, a Secretary at War can order your Troops where he thinks proper; the Antidote to this Order will be always in your own Hands; and by witholding the Payment, you necessarily withold the Troops. Upon the whole then, though I am a good deal in the Dark about East India Matters in gene- ral, not being able to attend your Courts as regularly as I could wish, yet I have this general Idea, and it seems to be pretty universally re- ceived, that the present Mode of recruiting your Troops is scandalous arid abusive, and dis- honour you as a great Company ; it therefore appears to me, as this Bill will not come on in the second Reading till Monday next at nearest, and as there are several Blanks now standing in the Bill, which are hereafter to be filled up, to be the best Way of proceeding to put the pre- vious Question." Sir Matthew Featherstone seconded Mr. Cornwall; on which the Debate became very general, and was spoken to with great Spirit on both Sides till near Six o'Clock, when the previous Question being put, there were 320 for the Bill, and 7 against it. Dr. Wilson has settled Fifty Pounds for Life upon the Patriot, and says, that if any Man will give more, he will equal him in Genero- sity. His Chariot is always at the Service of the Patriot, who is, in Civility, obliged to send for it oftener than he wants it, for Fear the Doctor should imagine that he is neglected. This same Reverend and public- spirited Di- vine has frequently declared that he has in his Will left something handsome to his Friend ; and that after his Death he will be indepen- dent. It is however remarkable, that he never attends at the Meetings of the Supporters of the Bill of Rights. His Aversion to Home is the Reason. The Court Party were so pulled last Night on the Nullum Tempus Bill, that it is well known they dispatched Messengers to Members to fetch them out of the Oratorios and other Places of Entertainment, desiring their imme- diate Attendance. On Tuesday last, being the Adjournment Day of the Quarter Session for the County of Surry, held at Southwark, before Sir Joseph Mawbey, Bart. Chairman, Sir Timothy Walde, Knt. and a crouded Bench of Justices, came 0n the Trial of Mr. Keen, a Surgeon, and the Keeper of a private Madhouse near Kenning- ton Common, for assaulting Mrs. Leggat, with an Intent to commit a Rape upon her, the falsely imprisoning her for above three Days, and the committing another Assault upon her. It appeared in Evidence on the Trial, that Mrs. Leggat had been seduced by her Husband, un- der Pretence of taking an Airing to Kingston, to the Prisoner's House, without there being the lead Foundation for any Imputation of In- sanity : That whilst she was confined she offered to engage for the Payment of 20l. if he would let her out; but the Prisoner ( Keen) declared her Note for that Purpose would not be bind- ing, and besides, he was to have 20l. from her Husband for confining her; and that he de- clared to her Friends, when they demanded her Enlargement, he would confine any Wo- man if her Husband would put her under his Care. The Trial lasted full five Hours, when the Prisoner was found guilty by the Jury of all the several Charges laid against him, to the entire Satisfaction of the Bench, and some Hundreds of Auditors. The Court not only considering the many aggravated Circumstances that attended the illegal and cruel Conduit of the Prisoner in the present Case, but how highly necessary it was when in their Power to punish all Keepers of such infamous private Houses, established under the false Pretence of curing Lunatics, thought proper, to prevent the Prisoner from such Behaviour for the fu- ture, and to deter others from daring to violate the Laws of their Country, under any Pre- tence whatever, to pass on him the following Sentence : That he be imprisoned for the Space of six Months, set in and upon the Pillory for one Hour on the 13th Instant, at St. Margaret's Hill, and that he pay a Fine of 13s. 4d. and give Security for his good Behaviour for two Years, himself in 200I. and his Bail in 1 ool. each. On Tuesday came on to be heard before Sir William De Grey, in the Court of Common Pleas at Guirdhall, by a special Jury, a Cause wherein Robert Ross, a Foremast- man of an East Indiaman, was Plaintiff, and the Captain of the said Ship, Defendant, for the letter's giving the former, at Maocow, in the East In- dies, 36 Lashes in a severe Manner, then pick- ling his Back with Brine, and confining him 23 Hours in Irons. The Jury brought in a Verdict for the Plaintiff, with 100I. Damages, and Cost of Suit. We are assured that a recent Attempt of a certain celebrated Castrato to elope to the Con- tinent, was entirely owing to a scandalous Re- port being circulated, that his Wife was preg- nant. Now, although this Story might do him Credit, as a Man, yet it prejudiced him as a Music Mailer, and lost him the Trust and Con- fidence of his Fair Scholars at the Coterie. It is pretty certain that the above scandalous Ru- mour ( or rather scandalous Tumour) was first propagated in the Harmonic Society. Monday a Servant belonging to a Merchant in Great Winchester- Street, was delivered of a Bastard Child in her own Room, when she cut the Child's Head entirely off from its Body; she was carried to Allhallows Workhouse to be taken Care of till she is able to be removed to Newgate. The Jury met, on Tuesday Evening, at the Crown at Little Moregate, and found her guilty of Wilful Murder. A recent Instance of the Efficacy of the BALSAMIC T INCTURE. To Dr. R Y S S E E G. I N the Year 1769, I contracted a most vio- lent, Scurvy, by a too long Confinement to Salt Pro- visions, during a Voyage in board the Phanix Man of War, Capt. Tonny, to Senegal in Africa, where I resided for a considerable Time as Steward to Chief Justice Christopher Milles, Esq; whose utmost Endea- vours to procure Assistance for me in that Country were ineffectual. My Disorder still increased to such a De- gree, that I had no less than eleven Holes in my Legs, which obliged me to solicit Permission to return to Eng- land. On my Arrival in London, I applied to seve- ral o f the most eminent of the Faculty, without re- ceiving the Benefit I expected. However, upon ob- serving an Advertisement in the Papers of the very remarkable Cure of Mrs. Mary Graham, residing at No. 59, Cannon- Strict, by the Application of your Balsamic Tincture, I waited on her, to be satisfied of the Truth of the said Cure ; when, being fully con- vinced of the Authenticity, I bought two Bottles of the Tincture, which I found of much Service to me, and by continuing it, I have the Happiness to assure you that my Disorder is entirely removed, and the Holes in my Legs are perfectly healed, except one, which is now no bigger than the Head of a Pin. I am en- tirely free from Pain, and in as good Health as ever I was in my Life. I send you this as an Acknowledge- ment, for the Benefit of those who may be afflicted with the same Complaint, and am ready to convince any Person of the Truth of this Assertion, who will call on me at Mr. Uphill's China Shop, in Mount- Street, Berkley- Square. I am, Sir, your most obliged humble Servant, Jan. 8, 1771. L. DROUARD. Sold wholesale and resale by F.

MONDAY'S POST. Yesterday arrived the Mails from France, Flanders, and Holland. Frontiers of Turkey, January 20. THE Captain Pacha dares not pass through the Dardanelles, to levy the customary Tribute, even from the nearest Islands. The Russians have destroyed nineteen Dulcignote Vessels, but some Barks arrived from Paros now give out, that the Russian Squadron has received Orders to suspend its Operations till next Spring, in order to facilitate the Negotiations on the Tapis for a Peace. The Grand Visir has like- wise applied to General Romanzow for an In- terview ; but the latter by Way of Preliminary requires, that he should first deliver up to him the Sieur Obreskow, the Russian Resident, whom the Porte have laid under an Arrest at Constantinople. Paris, Feb. 18. The new Chancellor meets with great Opposition from the Princes, the Peers, and even the Archbishop of Paris, who declared to him they could not accompany the King, if he should hold a Bed of Justice with the present Phantom of the Parliament. COUNTRY NEWS. Gloucester, March 4. On Tuesday Evening a Boy, Servant to a Gentleman in this City, returning Home, was attacked near Highnam by two Footpads, who held a large Knife to his Breast, and demanded his Money. The Boy told them he had only a Penny to pay the Pike: Upon which they swore they would take his Horse, and pulled the Boy off; but afterwards gave it him again, only enquiring his Mas- ter's Name, and bidding the Boy tell him, that they should meet with him before it was long, and then he should pay for himself and his Servant. LONDON, Saturday, March 2. Whitehall, March 2. The King having been pleased to grant his Royal Licence to Robert Melvill, Esq; Captain Gen. and Governor in Chief of his Majesty's Islands of Greneda, the Grenadines, St. Vincent, and Tobago, in America, to return to this Kingdom; his Ma- jesty has appointed William Leybourne, Esq; to be Captain General and Governor in Chief of those Islands, in the Room of the said Robert Melvill, Esq. Gazette. The following Protest has been entered against the Bill for repealing, in Favour of the Town of Liverpool, the Playhouse Act passed in the tenth Year of his late Majesty; and these Bishops withstood the Repeal ( the others chose to absent themselves) the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Bishops of London, Durham, Worcester, Norwich, Gloucester, Bangor, Lin- coln, St. David's, Landaff, and Chester. The Repeal was supported by the following great Officers of State: The Lord President of the Council, Earl Gower; the Lord Privy Seal, Earl of Suffolk; the First Lord of the Admi- ralty, Earl of Sandwich; the Secretary of State, Earl of Halifax; the Keeper of the Great Seal of Scotland, Earl of Marchmont; and Earl of Denbigh, Master of the Harriers and Fox- hounds; and Lord Despencer, Post- Master General. " DISSENTIENT, " Because the Argument, particularly en- deavoured to be enforced by the Supporters of the Bill, That established Theatres in Country Towns, conduce to the Improvement of the Morals of the Inhabitants, and in Commercial Towns to the Advantage of the Trader and Manufacturer, is Raillery rather than Reason, being false in Fact, and notoriously contradicted by Experience. " Because at a Time, when the acknow- ledged Characteristic of the Age, is Love of Pleasure and Dissipation, the weakening a Law, founded on the founded Principles of good Government, The Necessity of preserving the Morals of the Individual, for the Happiness of the Community, is, under these Circumstances, peculiarly unwise, contrary to the truest Maxims of Policy, and highly unbecoming the Dignity of Legislature. " Because, when we have a Prince on the Throne, whose Virtues whilst they reflect a Lustre his Crown, might check the growing Licentiousness of the Times, a Bill which re- laxes the Restraints on the Incentives to Vice, and tends to corrupt the moral Principles of his Subjects, supported as it is by Noble Lords in the highest Offices in Government, must, in Effect, counteract his Majesty's bright Example, and lessen its Influence on the Minds of his People. RADNOR. KING." Yesterday Sir William Stephenson and Mr. Alderman Peers, with Mr. Deputy Judd, Mr. Bellas, Mr. Bishop, and Mr. Hurford, attended by Mr. Remembrancer, presented a Petition to the Honourable the House of Commons, against the Bill for embanking Part of the River Thames near Durham- Yard, and which is ordered to be heard at the Bar of that House on Wednesday. The Upper House has passed a Bill to ena- ble Lunatics, entitled to renew Leases, by their Guardians and Committees, to accept of Sur- renders of old Leases, and to grant new ones. The Sum of 112,005l. is also granted to pay the Out- pensioners of Chelsea Hospital. The Sum of 359,9271. is also granted for the extra Expences of the Land Forces not before provided for. A Correspondent assures us, as a certain Fact, that Lord M d is at present the real Premier; no Step, though ever so trisling, be- ing taken without his L p's Approbation. Yesterday, about Five in the Afternoon, Sir James Macartney, in a Post- Coach and Six, set off for the Court of Madrid. More Mis- chief brewing. A Memorial, couched in a spirited Stile, has been lately remitted from Holland by the Dutch East- India Company, relative, it is said, to the new- intended Settlement now forming by a cer- tain powerful Body this Side the Water, in the Latitude of the Philippine Islands in the Orien- tal Sea. We learn by the Dorsetshire Man of War from Gibraltar in ten Days, that the Spaniards do not abate in their Preparations for War, not- withstanding the late Convention ; and by the Minerva, from Honduras, we hear that the Dis- putes ran very high between the Spaniards and our Logwood Cutters, whom they were daily driving from Place to Place. Two Transports, with warlike and ordnance Stores, will accompany the Men of War now getting ready to fail for Port Egmont to take Possession of Falkland's Island from the Spa- niards, on board of which will embark two Companies of Infantry, in order to render Port Egmont of sufficient Force not to be sur- prized again ( if the Spaniards should break the present Convention) on such humiliating Terms as before. Yesterday, being St. David's Day, the So- ciety of Antient Britons, accompanied by Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Bart, their President, Charles Vere, Esq; their Treasurer, and the Gentlemen Stewards, waited upon his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, at St. James's, according to annual Custom, and being admit- ted to his Presence, the Rev. Dr. James Hali- fax, of Ewell, in Surry, and possessed of an Estate in the County of Montgomery, addres- sed his Royal Highness in the following Words. " Most Gracious Prince, " THE Society of Antient Britons esteem it as an high Honour to this their Day of Fes- tivity, to be permitted to pay their annual Tribute of Respect and Gratitude to your Royal Highness; and to assure you how truly sensible his Majesty's faithful Subjects of the Principa- lity of Wales are of the Blessings they enjoy under his auspicious Government. They, and every other Subject in his Dominions, must find in him a true Father of his People ; but it is your Happiness, Royal Sir, to find him such in the fullest Sense of that endearing Appella- tion ; and to experience all the judicious and tender Regards of an affectionate Mother in his Majesty's most amiable Consort. Instructed by the bright Examples of these your Royal Parents, you was soon taught to feel for the wretched State of those who have no faithful Friend to be the Guide of their Youth. The Distresses of such poor Children who are de- scended of Welch Parents, born in or near London, who have no parochial Settlement, were laid before your Royal Highness in your earliest Years. Your infant Hands were gladly extended to relieve their Wants. These happy Indications of a fine Turn of Mind, and a charitable Attention to Suffering Innocence, ap- peared with greater Lustre as you advanced in Life ; and the Trustees of this useful Establish- ment received from your Royal Highness the agreeable Assurance that you would, with Plea- sure, continue to encourage and promote this laudable Charity. In consequence of so gra- cious an Answer to their last Address, they think it their Duty to inform you, that many of these poor Children are at so great a Dis- tance from the Place of their Education, that their Progress in Learning is, on that Account, much retarded ; and many of their Parents are so extremely indigent, that they are hardly able to give them Bread to eat. Could this Charity therefore be so far strengthened by the Hands of Beneficence, as to be able to gather these little Ones entirely under her own Wings, they would then be sheltered from those Snares and Temptations to which extreme Poverty stands exposed; and would constantly be em- ployed in Improvements which might best qua- lify them to become useful Members of the Community. Such an Undertaking is indeed far beyond the Reach of the present Benefac- tions bestowed on this Charity, yet we cannot but entertain good Hopes that it may, in Time, be extended to this Degree of Utility. For whilst it has the Protection and Support of your Royal Highness, the Hearts of many will be warmed into Compassion by your great Ex- ample, and the Ears of many will be open to the Cry of those helpless Infants. " That his Majesty may long continue to reign over a loyal and faithful People, and par- ticipate in every domestic Comfort with his Royal Consort; that they may both be blessed in beholding the Lustre of those Virtues and Graces in their beloved Offspring, which are so eminently conspicuous in their own Lives; and that the Crown and Dignity of these Realms may descend to their illustrious Line, are the earnest Wishes and ardent Prayers of this Society." To which his Royal Highness was pleased to give the following most gracious Answer : " THE Duty and Loyalty expressed to the " King and Queen in this Address, I regard as " the surest Marks of Affection to me; and " shall always most gladly promote the Wel- " fare of so useful and laudable a Society." His Royal Highness received the President, Sec. of the above Society in a very polite Man- ner, and presented them with a Purse of One Hundred Guineas towards the Support of their Charity- School: They all had the Honour of killing his Royal Highness's Hand. At the Affair of the Nullum Tempus Bill makes so much Noise, we have given our Readers a Sketch of the Dispute as stated by the Lowther Party: King William made a Grant to the Earl of Portland and his Heirs of several Lordships within the Forest of Inglewood, in Cumber- land, which were then out at Lease. As fast as any Leases fell in, the Portland Family took Possession of them, pretending that the Whole of the Forest had been comprehended in the above Grant. But a Dispute arising be- tween the late Duke of Portland and Sir James Lowther, concerning a Fishery in the River Eden, in the Proceedings of Chancery, it was necessary to examine the Duke's Grant from King William. Here the Lowther Party found that the Duke had no Right to several of those Manors, & c. which he had taken Possession of, and Sir James Lowther, on stating his Dis- covery, obtained from the Treasury a Lease of the Royalty of the Forest of Inglewood, & c. on a Term of three Lives, on Condition that he would be at the sole Charge of recovering it for the Crown. As soon as this Lease was passed, the other Party exclaimed, that no Man could henceforth be safe in his Possession. It was therefore proposed to correct the old Law of the Constitution, entitled, Nullum Tempus, & c. i. e. " That no Time or Length of Pos- session is good against the King, or can inva- lidate his Claim."— On this a Bill was brought into the House, and passed into a Law, that no Claim of the Crown should invalidate a Pos- session of sixty Years.— A Clause was added by the Consent of both Parties, declaring, that this Act should not affect the Dispute between the Duke and Sir James. To repeal this Clause a Bill was brought into the present Ses- sion by the Duke of Portland, but thrown out, as mentioned in the preceding Page. The Death of the King of Sweden, which is confirmed by this Day's Mails, happened suddenly in the Night of the 12th of February. By a Letter from Lyons we arc told, that there are 1500 English Weavers at the Looms in that City. The Society for the Encouragement of Arts have advertised a Premium of 50l. for the greatest Number of Acres sowed with Wheat at this Season of the Year. The following seems an easy Improvement in Agriculture : A Gentleman in Gloucester- shire set Half a Peck of Wheat upon somewhat less than Half an Acre of Ground, in Rows at a Foot Distance, the Soil sandy, without any Dung; he has lately threshed out the Produce of his Half Peck, and it amounted to 18 Bushels and a Half. The Gentleman imputes this great Crop to his keeping his Ground constantly cleaned from Weeds, by Means of a Horse- How, and the planting it in Rows, which ad- mit a free Circulation of Air. The same Gen- tleman has had an astonishing Crop of Carrots, from planting them at a considerable Distance from each other and keeping the Land howed free from Weeds. His Carrots in general weighed about ten Pounds each and some more. — They prove excellent Food for Cattle, and when dressed for the Table are as sweet as any Garden Carrots. The Rev. James Reading, A. M. is insti- tuted to the Rectory of Stonefield in Oxford- shire, on the Presentation of his Grace the Duke of Marlborough. CARMARTHEN CIRCUIT.

Extract of a Letter received by Prince Gallitzin, the Russian Minister at the Hague, dated Pe- tersbourg, Feb. 4. NOTWITHSTANDING the Severity of the Weather our Troops are still in Action, and we have Advice from, our first Army, that Gen. Olitz, Commandant in Walachia, has de- tached a Body of Troops from Otta, to invest the Towns of Bracovan and Crajova; that those Troops, in their Way, encountered a Body of 5000 Turks, after beating of whom, and taking their Cannon, they had seized on the two before- mentioned Towns. After this Expedition, Gen. Olitz was making the ne- cessary Dispositions to attack Ruszig and Schur- schevo, the only two Places remaining in Pos- sesion of the Turks on the Left Banks of the Danube." Last Night there was a long Debate in the Lower House on the East- India Recruiting Bill, Whether it should be committed: When it was carried for committing it, 103 ; against 65. Yesterday the Serjeant at Arms belonging to the Lower Assembly, was called in, and asked what Steps he had taken in Regard to the Order of that Assembly to him directed for the appre- hending of the Printers : He said he had been several Times after them, but could not meet with them; it was then moved, that an humble Address should be presented to his Majesty, to desire that his Majesty would be pleased to issue a Proclamation for apprehending them, It is said his Majesty will go to the House of Peers next Friday, to pass the different Bills which lie ready for the Royal Assent. L - d C m, we are told, has intimated, that he shall be at Westminster on Tuesday next; when it is expected he will make a very important Motion. The Minority, notwithstanding their present seeming Supineness, we hear, are engaged in important Schemes, which are kept from tran- spiring with the utmost Care and Circumspection. Yesterday the Lord Chancellor and his Fa- ther paid a Visit to her Royal Highness the Princess Dowager of Wales at Carlton House. On Saturday Night some Dispatches were sent away for Falmouth, to be forwarded to his Majesty's Governors of Gibraltar and Minorca. In order to detach a certain patriotic Serjeant from his present Connections, one of the Ben- ches in Westminster- Hall. was lately offered him, which was refused with a just Abhorrence. It is said that Sir George Macartney, who lately set off for Madrid, is - charged with ex- traordinary Dispatches to the Court of Ver- sailles, which he is to deliver in his Way. Orders are issued from the Board of Works for repairing the several Forts throughout this Kingdom ; and, according to some, those Re- mains of Antiquity, our Castles, will be the Objects of particular Attention on the Occasion. Had not the Convention taken Place, the Spaniards were preparing to besiege Gibraltar with 70,000 Men, at the Head of whom the King himself, for the greater Eclat, was to appear. The Fleet to block up the Harbour was ready to fail from Ferrol. Notwithstanding the Reception the Con- vention has met with here from Opposition, it is reckoned, by foreign Nations, as extremely humiliating to Spain and honourable to Eng- land. An extraordinary Requisition is to be soon made by a rival Power. — This may be depended upon. Should Choiseul return into Office, War is certain. The Plan for attacking Holland is already settled in France, and the Empress Queen has agreed to give free Passage, through Austrian Flanders, to the French Troops. The Dutch, therefore, are using all the Force of Intrigue and Bribery at the Court of Versailles to prevent the Restoration of Choiseul. By a Correspondent, who arrived a few Days ago from Ireland, we are informed of the fol- lowing Particulars relative to the S — ry of that Kingdom obtaining a Majority in that P-- nt:— Besides the usual Methods of large Promises, Places and Pensions, he has hit upon a Scheme which seems to be original in Venality ; which is, he has purchased almost every vacant Seat in the Kingdom, which may amount to about twenty, and insits of those out of Parliament to buy from him, or lose their Employments ; and every new made Lord that has a Borough, is obliged to return a Friend to Government, whilst those that have no Borough are to buy a Seat at the stipulated Sum of 2000l. The Treasury of that Kingdom is the grand Reservoir from whence these corrupted Chan- nels flow ; and left these Channels should dry up, they are every now and then fed with the Streams of the public Funds. The Money, for Instance, that should be forth coming to pay the Officers Widows on the 1st of January last, has been applied to this Purpose, whilst the Com- plaints of the unhappy Sufferers are disregarded. Letters from Hanover, dated Feb. 19, ad- vise, that the Princess, Spouse to Princess Charles of Mecklenburg Strelitz, was brought to- bed of a Daughter two Days before. By the great Encouragement now given to- wards supporting the Newfoundland and other Fisheries on Foot, in the different Parts of the British Empire, above thirty thousand Seamen will find Employment the ensuing Summer in that valuable Branch of Commerce. Russia and Prussia have agreed to let Poland endeavour at the Establishment of her own Tranquility, being of Opinion that she is able to attain the wish'd- for End. Letters from the Frontiers of Poland say, Forty Thousand Recruits are actually on their March to reinforce the two Russian Armies, and enable them to push their Operations on the Danube with the greater Effect. Letters from Paris give an Account of several atrocious Crimes lately committed in that Ca- pital. Amongst others, a young Woman, who was disappointed in an Amour by her Mother, found Means to poison her; since which she has confessed her Guilt, but ' discovers not the least Sign of Contrition. And the Son of a Mercer, a few Nights ago, killed his Father and Mother in their Beds, with an Iron Bar which secured their Shop Door, and afterwards made the like Attempt on his Brother, but was not able to accomplish his Purpose; and fearing he should be taken, stabbed himself in several Parts of his Body, and then threw himself into a Well. Mr. Warpole, who arrived in Town on Friday last, came over in an open Boat from France ; the Business which brought him from Paris admitting of no Delay. A Letter from Brest mentions, that Orders had just been received to unrig several capital Ships of War, both there and at Rochfort; but the Toulon Squadron is to be kept upon a re- spectable Footing, while the Russian Fleets con- tinue in the Mediterranean and Levant Seas. It is said that the Liberty given in the India Recruiting Bill to employ one- third Foreigners in the Corps to be raised under the Eye of Government, is, that the K— g may provide for several of his Hanoverian Subjects. We hear that in the Lottery for the present Year there will be only one Blank to a Prize. For the better securing the Persons of the Printers, we hear that Mr. Broughton, the famous Bruiser, has lately appeared at the Chapter Coffee- House, as supposed, by Order of some Friends of the Min- y, in order to be at Hand to assist the Messengers, if Occa- sion should arise. It is well known that intestine Broils are more destructive than foreign Attacks : As a Proof of this, after bidding Defiance to what- ever Reason, or Morality could urge against its Establishment, the Coterie, we are assured is now on the Point of Dissolution from the Jar- rings and Contentions of its own Members. A celebrated Italian Singer, it is said, was waiting for a fair Wind at Dover to embark far the Continent, when he was unluckily over- taken by his Creditors. BANKRUPTS required to surrender.

EARLY INTELLIGENCE, received from our Correspondents in London, dated Wednesday, March 6. YESTERDAY the following Project was tried, without Effect, to take the Printers into Custody: Having failed in every other Scheme, a Messenger went and pretended to be an Author, and wanted to fell to the Printer a Manuscript, saying, that if he could see the Gentleman he did not doubt but they should agree for it. The pretended Author was asked the Title of his Work; he replied that he called it The Ministry dissected, or a Narrative of all their vile Proceedings from the year 1760 to the present Times. A Gentleman who hap- pened to be in the Shop, and had some Know- ledge of him, told him the Bait would not take, for the Person he wanted to treat with was out of his Reach, and would be some Months longer; upon which the Messenger left the Shop, vowing Revenge for his Disappointment. Last Night the House of Commons were agitating a Motion of Governor Pownall's, which we find was respecting the Spanish Con- vention ; on which Account they fat very late. Mr. Dowdeswell, we hear, will move the House To- morrow, for Leave to bring in a Bill to establish, declare, and point out the Power, & c. of Juries. It is reported that the following Changes will take Place before the Rising of Parliament: — Lord Chief Justice Mansfield will quit the King's Bench; Sir Fletcher Norton will be created a Peer, and succeed Lord Mansfield ; and Velters Cornwall, Esq; to be Speaker, in the room of Sir Fletcher Norton. The Mail from New- York, which arrived at the General Post Office on Monday last, brought the greatest Number of Letters to the Merchants of this City, as have been known for these eight Years past; and what makes it the more agreeable is, that most of them con- tain Orders for divers Sorts of Goods in large Quantities; so that many Hundreds of poor Artificers, who have had no Work for a long Time, will now find Employ. One Weaver, it is said, engaged Yesterday thirty fresh Hands, whose Families were almost starving. WORCESTER, Thursday, March 7.

Humourous LETTER from an honest FARMER to his Son in London. MY DEAR DAVID, Your poor Mother and I have been greatly afflicted at your long Silence : We are afraid something has happened to your Sister, and you dare not write to us. You know you promised to be a watchful Guardian to her in that wicked Town of London, but we are suspicious that she has fallen into bad Company, and has given you the Slip. Pray, what is that Coterie ? We have a sad Opinion of it here: Though, we don't rightly understand the Institution, our Farmers say it is a Meeting of Men and Women, higgledy- piggledy, like Hay- makers in a Barn, or Soldiers, and their Wives in the Barrack. For my Part, I suspect, David, that you are got in with the Court, and then of Course forget your Friends as fast as you can. It is rumoured here, that your Uncle has left the Bill of Rights, and is gone over with the Granville Party to the Administration; if so, I will never believe a Patriot more. I never had a good Opinion of Parties. I always thought the Ins meant to prove Wrong to be Right, and the Outs ready to advance Right to be Wrong. I thought, however, my Brother was not a Party- Man, and aimed only at the public Good ; but London seems to be all in Confusion. According to the News- Papers you have an Opera Singer that has Children, and you have married a Lord that should be an Opera Singer. Your Speakers in the House are afraid to be heard ; and your Preachers in the Church harangue to empty Pews. We read of a Bill depending to bring a River to London, and another to build Houses on the Thames. It is said that your Routs are thronged with young Men, and your Women go to a Tavern. You have Operas at the Soho Assembly, and you are soon to have an Assembly at the Opera House. Your Ministry gives up the Privilege of Parliament in Law Prosecutions, and your Patriots have been struggling for an ex post Facto Law. You are against raising 2oo0 Men to defend your great Possessions in India; and you are fitting out Armaments at Sea, when you have concluded a Peace with Spain. The King and Queen, by their Example, are Ad- vocates for Matrimony, and the Nobility for Di- vorces. The Robinhood Society has summoned the Printers to hear what they have to say, while they are afraid themselves to be heard by the Prin- ters: And as your Ministers heretofore took up Printers by Warrants unsupported by Authority, it is said they are now attempting to seize them by Authority without any Warrant; and we are told a great Patriot is likely to lose an Estate in Cum- berland by a Majority of Votes against him, as another Patriot lost a Seat in Parliament with a Majority of Votes in his Favour. Pray let us hear from you, and tell me what Progress you and your Sister make at Hart's Aca- demy. I suppose you can now make a Bow with- out kicking the Shins of those who are behind you, or knocking down your Right Hand Neigh- bour with your Hat; and your Sister can curtsie without bobbing or jerking like a Fisherman's Quill in the Water, or the Jack of a Harpsichord ; i always told her to take Care of her sinking, but above all to rise without jerking or bobbing. I suppose you'll go no more to that School of Ora- tory, the Robinhood, since, if Fortune should favour your Ambition, and you get a Seat in the House, you are not to speak in public. I approve the Reformation of determining Debates by Arithmetic rather than Oratory ; 160 to 150 is a stronger Argument than any to be found in De Demosthenes or Tully, and Aye or No is the true Laconic Mode of Reasoning of those Grecian Britons, the valiant and wise Spartans. Does your Sister improve in Politeness and Good- breeding? I would have her go as often as she can to the City Ball ; but Mrs. Jenkinson, who sits near me, says, she hears the Coterie is the only Place for Breeding— you know she will be merry.

VELNOS' Vegetable SYRUP. THE following Cure is so very remarkable, both for its Inveteracy and the open Manner in which it was effected, that is to be hoped it will be deemed a satisfactory and incontestable Proof of the Efficacy of the VEGETABLE SYRUP; more especially as Cases of this Kind are not easily be obtained, from Motives of Delicacy. Edward Davis, Foot Soldier in the late Lord Ligonier's Regiment of Guards, was, from a Venereal Cause of long standing, highly complicated with the Scurvy, cowered with large Pustules and sordid Ulcers, from, the Crown of his Head to the Soles of his Feet, Upon Ex- amination I also discerned, that the Uvula was ulcerated, and the Tonsils almost consumed by two large Ulcers. He was besides afflicted with the most dreadful nocturnal Pains, with Nodes on various Parts, a slow hectic Fever, and continual Head Ache. He had been under Mercurial Courses without Effect, was at this Time reduced to a mere Skeleton, and looked on as totally incurable. As I wished to have an Opportunity of putting the Vegetable Syrup to the most severe Trial, I had requested a noble Friend of mine to obtain of Lord Ligonier, that I might have a Soldier from the Hospital in Petty France, West- minister, on whom I might make an Experiment, whose Case was the most complicated, and obstinate. This Man was presented to me by Order of his Colonel, as a most hopeless Subject, and sent to my House ; where be was radically cured in the Space of six Weeks, by the Use of the Syrup ONLY, and returned for Inspection to the Hos- pital, accompanied by his Colonel and myself, perfectly found, to the great Astonishment of all who were acquainted with his deplorable Case ; and remains to this Day in perfect Health.

Dr. Walkers Patent Jesuits Drops, And SPECIFIC PURging REMEDY. All Persons unhappily afflicted with the VENEREAL DISEASE, are earnestly requested to read the following Advertisement with the most serious Attention. Whereas there are numberless Quack Medicines, such as Pills, Electuaries, & c. & c. advertised for the Cure of the above Disorder, all of which chiefly consist of Mer- curials, the taking of which is sure to be attended with the most dreadful Consequences to the unhappy Patients, we beg Leave to inform the Afflicted, that Dr. WAlker's Genuine, True, and Original, PATIent Jesuits Drops, and his Specific Purging Remedy ( in which there is not the least Particle of Mercury, as may be seen by any one who choses to examine our Patent) are sold at our Warehouse, No. 45, the Corner of Fleet- Lane, Old Bailey, London, and ( by special Appointment of the Patentees) are likewise sold by H.

SIR, MA N, in all Probability isnot liable tomoreDiseases than there are Means of Cure ; as with a weakly Constitu- tion, subject to Disorders of the Head, ªtomach, and Lungs, together with Cholics, Palpitations of the Heart, the Rheu- matism, & c. an old Age may be attained : This is a Truth of which I myself ama Testimony. It is true, indeed, that Medicines and proper Diet have always been of Service to me ; and as often as I have I been told, Qui medice vivit, misere vivit ? my Answer has been, Vivit tamen. I have bad Death often before my Eyes ; and believe it has been owingtomy own Care and Precaution that I am now to be numbered amongst he Living. It is most natural, and highly consisten t we are Recourse with Reason and good Sensex that when afflicted with a bad State of Health, we shouldhave to Medicine and every necessary Means of Cure. In a Word, on the 12th of October, 1770 ( for this is the Circumstance at present chiefly to be considered) a Cold in my Head, being a Disease to which I am frequently subject, threatened me with a total Suffocation ; insomuch, that my own Knowledge and Experience in Usual Remedies failing me, I concluded that my latter End was at Hand ; notwith- standing which I was so happy as to meet with a perfect curé fro m the sole Use of your Antimonial Drops, In a few Hours after taking them, my Head was free and easy; and I felt myself, in all Respects, wonderfullyrestored; so that notwithstanding my experiencing manyexcellentMedicines, by which I have hitherto prolonged my Life, I do affirm, that these Drops are inmy Opinion, themostsalutary and effect us Medicine in the World.

MAREDANT'S DROPS. To Mr. Norton, Surgeon, Golden- Square. SIR, Having somes Time since been greatly afflicted with the Scurvy, which appeared in great Blotches and other Eruptions all over my Body, and having had the Advice of several eminent Physicians without Relief, I was at last advised by a Friend to try your ( Maredant's) Drops; which I accordingly did, and am now perfectly restored to my former Health by no other Means. If you think proper to publish this, I have no Objection. Chancery- Lane, I am your very humble Servant, Dec. 5, 1770. THOMAS WILLIAM PINCK Any Person still doubtful of the Efficacy of this Medi- cine may ( by applying to. Mr. NORTON, Surgeon, the well 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 0f 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 an Season, without the least Inconvenience or Hindrance of Business. They also perfect Digestion, and amazingly create an Appetite. N. B. None are genuine but what are signed by JOHN NORTON, in his own Hand writing ; who hath appointed them to be sold by H. BERROW, at his Printing Office near the Cross, Worcester, and may be had of thé Distri- butors of this Paper ; also sold by Mr. Taylor, at Stafford ; Mr. Hudson, at Burton ; Mr. Hubbard, and Mr. Morgan at Lichfield ; Messrs. Smith and Bridgwater, at Wolver- hampton ; and Mr. Smith, at Newcastle under Line. By His Majesty's Letters Patent, ( Granted to WALTER LEAKE, of the City of London, P. P.) is recommended the Justly Famous PILL, called in the Patent, PILULA SALUTARIA; And there pronounced' to be a Cure for the VENEREAL DISEASE, Scurvy, and RHEUMATISM. In fifteen or eighteen Days it generally cures those cruel Disorders, and where it fails of perfectly restoring Health in that Time, the Patient has the happy. Assurance that he or she is at the Eve of being restored, let the Degree of Malignancy be ever so great. It is an Excel- lency peculiar to these Pills, to make directly the com- plaining Parts, and enter into Contest with the offending Matter, which they soon dislodge and expel. They are declared by Experience to be a Preserver of Health, as well as a Restorer, by taking only eight single Pills. ( instructed by the Direction Bills) once or twice a Year In short, the Patentee has this extraordinary Obligation to them, that whatever he promised himself from them they were sure to fulfil and exceed, as though impatient of immortal and universal Fame. These Pills are more worth a Place in the Cabinet of Masters and Captains of Ships, and the more so, for that they require no Consing- ment, nor Restraint of Diet, will keep good in all Cli- mates any Length of Time, and effect a Cure even when Salivation fails. Sold by the Patentee ( in Boxes of 2s. 6d. east) at his House No. 16, Bride Lane, Fleet Street; who effectu- ally cures Gleets and Seminal Weaknesses : Also sold by by Appointment by Mr. Hart, Deuggist, in Wolverhampton Aris and Co.
