BERROW'S Worcester Journal Price Two- pence Halfpenny. THURSDAY, April 11, 1771. Numb. 4019. To the PUBLIC. THOUGH our Endeavours, from Time to Time, to render this Journal worthy a general Approbation and Encouragement, must naturally have been attended with a great Addi- tion of Care and Expense, yet it is no less appa- rent, that a particular Anxiousness to acquit our- selves with Credit, as well as to give entire Sa- tisfaction to our Readers, has in no Degree abated ; nor, so long as we are stimulated by the strongest Sentiments of Gratitude and Emula- tion, shall we omit any Means for its further Improvement. Besides its now embellished Appearance, we have considerably enlarged the Pages, the better to enable us to oblige the Public with a greater Quantity and Variety of Matter ; and if, in our Choice of Materials for that Purpose, we should be so happy as to meet with their Approbation, we shall greatly pride ourselves in so valuable an Acquisition, and never despair of due Encourage- ment from the Judicious, the Candid, and the Generous. The early Publication of this Journal, ( by Means of an Express) the late considerable Exten- sion of its Circuits, and the greatly- encreased Number now printed, are, no doubt, very dis- tinguishable Circumstances in its Favour, parti- cularly under the Consideration of how much better now the Purpose of advertising in it must certainly be answered : And, for its further Re- commendation, we have likewise established such a regular and respectable Correspondence in Lon- don as will constantly afford us the pleasureable Opportunity of communicating many interesting Occurrences, which cannot possibly appear in any other Country News Paper till some Days after, nor even in any London Papers before those which arrive in these Parts by Friday's Mail. To our ready Acknowledgment of the kind Encouragement we have hitherto met with, it is presumed we have only to add our sincerest Thanks, which are now most respectfully ten- dered to the Public. SATURDAY's POST. Arrived a Mail from France. Marseilles, March 22. THE Sieur Boyne, an English Captain, laden with Corn from Tunis for Spain, on Account of the board his Ves- sle, a Lion, a Tiger, three Horses, an Ass, twelve Sheep, and an hundred most curious Skins of Lions, Tigers, Foxes, & c. intended for the Britannic Majesty. Vienna, Feb. 27. According to some Advices received from the Morea, the contagious Distem- per which prevailed there is at an End. The last Letters from Constantinople advise, that the new Captain Pacha, finding the Marine in such a bad Condition that he had little Hopes of retrieving it, had resigned his Employment. LONDON, Thursday, April 4. The following is the Answer transmitted by the Right Hon, the Lord Mayor of London to the Address of the Portreeve, Bailiff, and princi- pal Inhabitants of the Borough of Honiton : To the worthy Inhabitants of the Borough of Honiton " Gentlemen, " I had the Honour this Day of receiving from you the noblest Testimonial of your Approbation of my Conduct in Parliament; that sacred Trust I have always conscientiously discharged. I have, in that Station, solely considered myself as en- trusted by you, to be a Guardian of the invalu- able Liberties, which this Nation enjoys beyond any in the World. With Anguish I have seen them attacked and violated of late in the most desperate Manner, and the wicked Plan of destroy- ing this Constitution seems now to be pursued with the utmost Rigour. But whatever the profligate Attempts of our Enemies may be, they shall find in me a zealous and intrepid Assertor of the Li- berties of this Kingdom, a warm Friend to the Constitution as by Law established, and that I am, on every Occasion, devoted to your Service. " I rejoice to find that all the undue Arts to warp your Integrity have been ineffectual; and I hope that in the severed Trial I shall approve my- self worthy of the Support of Gentlemen, whose public Virtue is Proof against every sinister At- tempt, or open Attack. I am, Gentlemen, " With the utmost Respect and Gratitude, " Your faithful and obedient humble Servant, " BRASS CROSBY." From the Tower, April 2, 1771. The two patriotic Prisoners had, it is said the Honour Yesterday Morning of a Visit from a celebrated Nobleman, who not only complimented them upon their spirited Conduct, but declared that every arbitrary Measure was in direct Oppo- sition to his Advice, Principles, and Wishes. A Correspondent speaking of the present State of this Kingdom, says, " The People in Power, pleased with the fascinating Ideas of conquering their Enemies, have set up the Banner of Oppres- sion, and extended the Line of Prerogative beyond what this Nation can bear : While, on the other Hand, the licentious Sons of Republicanism, sheltered under the specious Pretexts of Liberty, and dauntless Opposition to illegal Power, are the treacherous Physicians who offer to cure the Wounds the Constitution has received from the former; not but that I verily believe there are many good well- meaning Men on both Sides. But their Passions carry them too far. The over- heated Zeal of Party turns the Sceptre into a Rod of Tyranny ; and the benignant Struggles of Li- berty, into the furious Efforts of Faction." Large Wagers are laid at the West End of the Town, that a certain Assembly will proceed against Mr. Alderman Wilkes with the greatest Severity ; a great Minister having publicly de- clared, that popular as he may be rendered by Pu- nishment, neither the Particularity of his Situa- tion, nor his Wishes to be prosecuted, shall fur- nish him with a Triumph over the Laws of his Country. It is asserted, that unless the Lord Mayor and Mr. Alderman Oliver should be very soon released from the Tower, Petitions to the Throne will be presented from the City and Borough of which those Gentlemen are Representatives. I am sure, said a Gentleman of the Grenville Party, after complaining of W- dd— n's Desertion, that Judas Iscariot was a Scot. — I know Nothing of his Country, replies a Stander- by, but I'll swear that a Scot is a true Judas Iscariot. Private Advices from Portugal mention, that some very extraordinary Dispatches had been re- ceived from Madrid, which required an imme- diate Answer. Count Malzahn, the Prussian Ambassador, we hear, is become as troublesome to our Ministry, as the Envoys from the Bourbonian Compact. A Correspondent assures us that a Number of extra Hands are taken in at the Victualling Office, who are employed in curing a Quantity of Pro- visions to victual the Fleets which are expected to sail to Gibraltar and Mahon. Letters in Town from the East- Indies say, that Commodore Lindsay had dispatched the Hawke Sloop of War in Quest of his Majesty's Ship the Aurora ; that she had examined all the Harbours and anchoring Places in the Island of Madagascar, and every Port where it was in the least probable she might have been arrived, but without any Kind of Success ; for which Reason, there does not now remain the smallest Hope of her Safety. The same Letters add, that this Sloop of War found the French had settled and fortified the whole Eastern Coast of that great Island. A Letter from St. Kitt's, dated Dec. 18, 1770, has the following remarkable Passage : " On the 13 th ult. we had a very hard Gale of Wind here at N. W. which continued with unremitting Vi- olence for above ten Hours; when several Ships were driven from their Anchors, but no other Damage done; afterwards there was a profound Calm, when the whole Surface of the Sea for about four Miles round was seen covered with a Kind of yellow Caterpillar, many of which were taken up alive. Letters from Paris, dated April 1, give the following Account of the Loss of the Spanish Galleon, the Oriflamme, on the Coast of Chili. This Ship sailed from Cadiz for Lima, in Febru- ary 1770, with a Cargo valued at Twelve Mil- lions of Livres Tournois. She had 300 Sailors, besides many Passengers on board. An epidemic Distemper attacking them in their Passage, so weakened their Crew, that they had scarce Hands sufficient to work the Ship; but the 27th of July, being within Sight of Land, they made Signals of Distress to a Spanish Ship, named the Gaillard, which Ship sent forty Men in their Challoups, with Provisions and Refreshments, but on Account of the Sea's running Mountains high, they could not reach the Oriflamme, which was driven on Shore, and went to Pieces, and every Soul on board perished, and little or nothing of the Cargo was saved. A Letter from Canterbury, dated April 2, says, " On Wednesday Evening last, Mr. Lampert, Supervisor with three other Officers and a Soldier, met at Sandway, near Lenham, 46 Smuglers, with 50 Horses, loaded with Bale Goods, Tea, & c. They attempted to seize the Goods, but, from the great Superiority of the Smugglers, they were obliged to desist, and fly for Safety to Len- ham, where, being joined by the Officer at that Place, they agreed to return and track the Smug- glers till Day Light. At West Farley on seeing the Officers, one of the Smugglers galloped off, and Mr. Lampert and Mr. Brown determined to follow him. When they came to Teston, they were surrounded by a Party of the Smugglers, who offered them ten Bags of Tea, if they would go off, which was agreed to; the Smugglers then refused to give them any, and insisted upon their delivering up their Arms; but the Officers not immediately complying with it, they fell on and beat them with large Sticks and loaded Whips in a most cruel and violent Manner, till they were almost deprived of Life. A Gentleman ( Mr., W.) lost 10000l. at one Table, and his Lady 5000I. at another, at a Rout in the Neighbourhood of St. James's, on Sunday last; and Yesterday they set out for their Seat in the North, to repent of their Frolic. Worcester, April 11, 1771. GOOLDEN and LOWE, Mercers, At the COLLEGE GRATES, BEG Leave to inform the Ladies and the Public, that their great Sale of New SILKS began on Monday last, the 8th Instant ; consisting of a very genteel and fashionable Assort- ment, just come down from the Looms, the Patterns of which are fancied by the first Artists in the Kingdom, and fabricated on the Italian Principle, which, for Beauty and Wear, far exceeds the com- mon Method of manufacturing Silks.

Mr. Goolden of Birmingham thinks it very necessary he should inform the Public, that he has no Sort of Connection with Bayliss and Co. as has been industriously reported; and that his Partner ( Mr. Lowe) will be al- ways ready to wait upon the Ladies at their old Shop at the College Grates. Worcester, April 3, 1771. To the Creditors of EDWARD JONES, Baker. WHEREAS I stand indebted to several Persons in divers Sums of Money, which I am now unable to pay, I must beg of you to consider the present unhappy Situation of my Family, and accept Payment of my Debts in the Manner following, viz. Five Shillings in the Pound to be paid on or before the Expiration of two Months, Five Shillings more at the Expiration of three Years, and Five Shillings more at the Expi- ration of six Years, and at the End of nine Years the Remainder shall be paid. It is not in my Power, Gentlemen, to pay you any other Way, except I deliver up my All, which, I am certain, will not amount to ten Shillings in the Pound. I do assure you it is my Intention to pay every body to the ut- most Farthing, but if a Statute is issued against me, the Expenses will absolutely disable me from doing it: I must therefore beg of you to prevent it, and accept the Composition I have above proposed : The Distress of my poor Family, my Wife being both sick and lame, and not having lain in but a Fort- night, and I being obliged to leave her, with five small Children, unable to help themselves, will, I hope, raise Companion in your Breasts, and excite Pity towards your unhappy distressed humble Ser- vant, EDWARD JONES.

JOHN WHEBLE, Publisher of the LADY'S MAGAZINE, gratefully sensible of the Obligations conferred on him by the very fa- vourable Reception it has met with, is sorry to find himself under the Necessity of appealing to his in- dulgent Readers in Behalf of his Pretentions to that Encouragement they have so liberally bestowed. He would be wanting, however, both to himself and the Public, should he fail to give the earliest Notice of a Design that is formed to deprive him of the honest Emoluments of his Publication ; and to impose a different Undertaking, under the same Ti- tle, on the Inattention of the unsuspecting Purchaser. The Time, Application, and Invention, which he has constantly and laboriously employed in the Prosecution and Perfection of the Lady's Magazine he conceives, entitles him to the just Reward of his Industry. But to such a Height is the Spirit of Li- terary Invasion grown, that there are Persons whom no Ties of Probity or Fair- dealing will restrain from attempting to engross the Whole of every Publication attended with distinguished Success. The Original Publisher, therefore, begs Leave par- ticularly to solicit the Protection of the more amia- ble Sex; whose Delicacy of Sentiment, and Detes- tation of Injustice, cannot fail to excite in them a generous Indignation against every Act of Oppres- sion and Imposture. Under their favourable Auspices, and with the Resolution of sparing neither Cost nor Pains to add to their Satisfaction, by still greater Improvements in the Variety, Utility, and Embellishments of his Magazine, he takes the Liberty of requesting their Attention to the above Circumstance; and to en- treat they will not permit any other Magazine, in Imitation of his, to be intruded upon them; but that they will give particular Directions to be supplied with the Lady's Magazine, printed only for the Original Publisher; who begs to subscribe himself, Their most obliged, And most grateful humble Servant, JOHN WHEBLE, No. 24, Paternoster Row, To whom his Fair Correspondents are humbly de- sired to direct their future Favours. N. B. The intended spurious Magazine is not yet published; the last Number, for March, 1771, be ing genuine; notwithstanding_ some Thousands of them have been distributed, with the Name of ano- ther Publisher artfully substituted in the Place of that of J. WHEBLE; and at a Time when it was impossible to prevent or expose that Transaction without creating a Disappointment to the Pair Purchasers. MONDAY's POST. Extract of a Letter from Edinburgh, April 2. I Mentioned in my last, some Accounts of a Mob at Dumfries; since which we learn that on Wednesday last they assembled to the Number of 1500, and proceeded to unload some Meal which was on board a Vessel bound to Irvine ; which the Military marched down to the ship, the Mob then dispersed; but when the soldiers were returning to the Town, the Mob assaulted them violently with Stones, Brickbats, & c. in a narrow Street called the Fryar's Wynd, which leads from the Bridge to the Town ; seve- ral of the Officers, and many of the Men, were such hurt; the Magistrates and Justices of the Pease who attended the Party, gave them Or- ders to fire ; a few of the rear Rank did so, but red over their Heads; and finding they were not intimidated, they at last fired among the Mob ; One Man was killed, another wounded danger- ously, who died the next Day, and about five or six were slightly wounded; the Mob then dis- persed, and when the Post came off on Friday all as quiet, so that it was hoped there will be no more Disturbance. Another Party of Soldiers as dispatched from this City Yesterday for Dumfries." LONDON, Saturday, April 6. Thursday Afternoon, by the Advice of Mr. Serjeant Glynn, the Committee of the Common- council directed their Solicitor to apply for Writs of Habeas Corpus for the Lord Mayor and Mr. Alderman Oliver. Accordingly the Lord Mayor nd Alderman were Yesterday privately conveyed Lord Chief Justice De Grey's House in Lin- oln's Inn Fields, attended by Mr. Serjeant Glynn and the Committee of Common Council. After the Warrant of Commitment had been read, Mr. lynn proceeded to urge Reasons why the Lord Mayor should be released from his Imprisonment it chief Reasons were, that the Warrant on which the Lord Mayor was committed was not a legal Authority to detain him, because it alledged in Act as a particular Breach of Privilege, which he proved not to be a Breach of Privilege, but merely the Discharge of Duty, which Act, if the Lord Mayor had not done he would have been Guilty of a Breach of his Oath and a Violation of the Laws. Mr. Glynn likewise observed that here different Jurisdictions clashed, yet a Magis- trate acting in his Office had never been adjudged Guilty of a Contempt by any other; even in Cases here a superior Jurisdiction had set aside and re- versed the Act. He said, Magistrates in England did not act with a Rope about their Necks; but even if they were mistaken in their Opinions, they could not be punished as Criminals, unless by some overt Acts they manifested a corrupt and criminal Motive. He said, the Commitment of he Messenger was for a Breach of the Peace, and that Privilege of Parliament would not prevent he Speaker himself from being committed for a reach of the Peace. He said that though the Judges could not tell, perhaps, what were the Privileges of the House of Commons, they were bound to say what was not their Privilege; and that Lord Chief Justice Holt had declared, in the case of the Aylesbury Men, that if a Man was committed by the Commons, on the Charge of a contempt, yet such Person ought to be dis- charged, unless it appeared to be a Contempt ac- cording to Law. He said Courts of Justice often decided concerning Privileges of Parliament, as had indeed been very lately done by Lord Cam- den in the Common Pleas. On the whole he submitted to his Lordship that the Lord Mayor ought to be released from his unjust and unlawful imprisonment. To these and other Arguments of the learned counsel the Chief Justice replied, that the Courts of Justice might if they pleased when a Matter of privilege came before them, decide upon the Le- gality of that Privilege ; but he said the Courts act by an Authority which they have by common but the Judges in the present Case act only under the particular Act of Parliament, which gives them an Authority, in Vacation Time, to to relieve from Imprisonment Persons committed by any Courts or Magistrates having criminal Ju- risdiction, and direct them to take proper Bail for he Appearance of Persons so relieved either in the King's Bench, or in that Court of Justice where the particular Offences, with which Persons are charged, are cognizable. Now, he said, the Lord Mayor's Case did not fall within that Act, or this was not in the Vacation of the Court which committed the Lord Mayor, the House of Com- mons being then sitting; he was therefore clear the present was a Case with which he could not meddle, and that the Lord Mayor must be remanded. After this Decision of Chief Justice De Grey, Mr. Oliver was carried, according to Appoint- ment, before Lord Mansfield, at his Chambers in Serjeant's Inn. The Counsellors, Mr. Glynn and Mr. Lee, knowing Lord Mansfield's Character and principles, refused to plead before him. When Mr. Oliver came before Lord Mansfield, his Lord- ship asked if he had not Counsel; he was answered " No. " I thought you had Counsel." I have none. His Lordship then asked if Mr. Oliver had any thing to urge. Mr. Oliver said, No, that his Lordship knew how he ought to determine. Lord Mansfield then, after hearing the Warrant and Affidavit read, declared, that " he was bound by Law and Precedent not to bail or discharge in this Case, the Parliament being still sitting ; that the Alderman must therefore be remanded. After these upright Decisions, the Lord Mayor and Mr. Oliver were re- conveyed to the Tower. The Friends of Administration give out, that many Plans are now upon the Carpet totally to grid themselves and the Kingdom of that terrible grilling Subject and Patriot, Mr. Alderman Wilkes, to whom the present Contest between the Ministers and the City is attributed. An Act of Incapacita- tion and Banishment are said to be the Basis of this unpopular Plan. Sir Joseph Mawbey, in his Speech on the Ques- tion of Commitment of the Lord Mayor to the Tower, asserts the following Fast as a Proof that the Case of Alderman Oliver and the Lord Mayor was judged and determined before it came on in the House. " I was Yesterday at the Tower ; I heard there, from good Authority, that an Or- der was sent to that Place on. Monday at Three o'Clock, directing ten Beds to be prepared — for whom they were to be prepared is Matter of Spe- culation and Guess. Perhaps one of them was intended for me. I shall never do any Thing wantonly and rashly to deserve it, but I shall never be afraid of occupying one of them in a Cause, that an honest Man, Handing up for the Rights of the People, need not be ashamed of. From what fell very early in the Day from an honourable Gentleman, who told us he would take down every Word that should be uttered, with a View of calling to Order ; I believe one of the Beds might be intended for an honourable Gentleman who sat lately below me, but whom I do not now see in his Place, if he had made Use of the same strong Expressions he used on Monday. It is very kind of the People over the Way to let every Man have a Bed to himself, when they themselves, at least many of them, lie two or three in a Bed. Col. Barre. See his Speech in our last Week's Paper. Alluding to the Practice of giving the Emolument of one lucrative Place among two or three Dependants. A Bill is already penned, and will be brought into the House next Week, to prevent the infa- mous Practice of Stock- jobbing. The Reason that it is moved for at this Time is, the critical Situation of Affairs in Europe, for it has been a general Practice for many Months for great Ope- rations to be made in our Funds on Account of Foreigners, on the Arrival of Couriers from the Continent before the public Dispatches have been opened, by which Practices it is supposed Sums to the Amount of Half a Million have been sent out of this Nation within these twelve Months past. These Matters have fully convinced the Ministry that it is high Time to put a Stop to those Plunderers of the Nation, and are deter- mined to carry the Bill through the House as soon as possible, as an Event will shortly happen that will occasion great Alteration in the Prices of our Funds, of which our Enemies would avail them- selves, if not timely prevented. Though the Directors of the Bank have autho- rised the Printers to " assure the Public, that there is not the least Foundation for the Report of a Run upon the Company, or that their Notes were at a Discount," yet it is certain, the Para- graphs which have lately appeared in several of the News Papers, have so alarmed the Ignorant, that within these three Days past, a Countryman refused to take Bank- Notes in Payment on the Corn Exchange in Mark- Lane. It is also certain, that the Farmers, and many others in the Coun- try, not more than twenty Miles from London, will not willingly take them ; and farther down we are told they are still more frightened. At present, however, there seems but little Reason far their Fears since this terrible Run upon the Company has had no other Effect than giving their Clerks a little extraordinary Trouble. Nevertheless one of our Brethren seems to con- firm the Truth of the Report, by asserting, that " the present Distress of the Bank was occasioned solely by Mr. Alderman Wilkes, Humphry Coates, and Robert Morris, Esqrs. suddenly withdrawing their Cash." In the new Stock- jobbing Act, it is said, that for all Bargains on Speculation, where the Stock is not really sold and delivered, for the first Of- fence is Transportation, and the sécond Death. Yesterday at high ' Change two Carts, attended by a great Mob, paraded the Strand, Fleet- Street, and Cheapside. In the first Cart sat Jack Ketch, as it were guarding some Paintings on Pasteboards, which were supported by a Wooden Frame fixed to the Cart. On the Back of the three Paste- board Figures were wrote Barrington, on whose Breast appeared these Words, A Letter of Thanks. After him came Halifax and Harley, the latter of whom was represented in an Alderman's Gown ; each having a Night- Cap, and being drawn with grievous Countenances, as if going to carry their Accounts to the other World. In the sécond Cart sat another Jack Ketch, guarding some Figures with sorrowful Counte- nances, drawn by some Persons that seemed well acquainted with the Attitude and Dress of the under- mentioned Names, which were depicted on the Backs of four Figures ; Jemmy Twitcher, De Grey, Luttrell the Usurper, Cocky Onflow. An Hour after this Procession the right and true last Dying- Speeches of the Malefactors, executed on Tower Hill, were cried about the Streets. In order to come at the Causes of the present Riots and Disturbances, a Chimney sweeper, who assisted as Ordinary at the sham Execution Yes- terday on Tower Hill, we are told, was offered a Place in the Customs if he would disclose the Names of his Employers ; but that, after having had a Treat of good cold Beef and Plenty of Beer, he bawled out " Wilkes and Liberty ! the Lord Mayor and Oliver for ever!" and then walked off. It is reported, that when a certain Great Per- sonage was going to the Parliament House lately, his amiable Confort entreated him in the most earnest Manner, if he found himself attended by the Insults and Complaints of his Subjects, in- stead of their Applause, that he would stop his Coach, and ask the People what they wanted ? what they complained of?— You will then have the Truth told you without Disguise, said, she, and hear what they murmur at. I don't like the Privilege of the House of Commons being greater than the Prerogative of the Crown, says a great Man to a very unpopular Lady ; for when you have destroyed the Liber- ties of the People, the King's Prerogative will be nothing but a Name. Never fear, replies the Lady, let me have unlimited Orders upon the War Office to silence the People, and as unlimited Orders on the Treasury for the noisy Patriots, and you shall have no Fears about the Prero- gative. Notwithstanding the Sneers which have been thrown out about the Act to prevent the Marriage between the guilty Persons after a Divorce, a cer- tain great Personage was seen the other Night in the Gallery at the Opera, with his old unfortu- nate Flame.— If Ten Thousand Pounds won't cool his Passion, can any Thing but an omnipo- tent Act of Parliament restrain him ? By authentic Advices from Cadiz we learn that the Spaniards go on briskly in their Preparations for War, which Event they look upon for certain about the Month of August next. Letters from Vienna say, that a Report is cur- rent of an Alliance to be formed between that Court and those of Petersbourgh and Berlin. The Prince Gallitzin, the Empress of Russia's Minister, has demanded of the Court of Vienna a Passage for a considerable Number of Russian Troops through Hungary. The Emperor is continuing to make every Pre- paration that can be necessary for War. We learn from the Netherlands, that the Lux- emburg Troops are already upon their March for Germany ; and the Austrian Troops in Flanders are to follow immediately; Part of them by Na- mur, and the rest towards Maestricht, where Bridges are forming over the Meuse for that Purpose. It is said that a Truce is concluded between the Russians and Turks. They write from Paris, that all the Princes of the Blood, except the Prince of Conde and the Count de la Marebe, will be banished; and that the Court of Aides it is feared will undergo the same Fate. Within these few Days a Person in Berkshire was awakened by a Noise in his Chamber like the drawing of Paper along the Floor, and put- ting his Curtain aside, perceived a Mouse with a Piece of Paper in his Mouth conveying it to a Hole in a Corner of the Room ; when he jumped out of Bed, and taking up the Paper which the Mouse had dropped the better to escape, found it to be a Bank Note ; upon examining his Drawers he perceived a Hole had been made by the Mouse into them, and of three Bank Notes which he had put there, two were carried away, and one for 30I. eaten up all to two or three Scraps, which will be sufficient to certify the Reality of the Note, so that he will not be a Sufferer by this uncommon Accident. They write from Plymouth, that on Sunday died there, as he was reading a News Paper, John Morshead, Esq; an Alderman of that Bo- rough. It is said the last Article he read aloud was the Commitment of Mr. Ald. Oliver to the Tower, when he was taken ill, and immediately expired. It is computed the M s of R m won last Wednesday at Newmarket upwards of 7000I.

A Foreign Ship having cast Anchor in our Road, the Captain was asked if he had any Thing contraband on board. Though he answered in the Negative, some Suspicions having arisen, his Ship was searched, on board of which were found 3000 Suits of Regimentals, with Powder and Firelocks ; upon which the Captain was committed to Prison. Constantinople, March 9. Notwithstanding the continual Reinforcements that are sent to the Army, it is the general Opinion that the ensuing Campaign will be the last, and the good or ill For- tune, which may be the Result, will finally de- termine the Condition of Peace. LONDON, Tuesday, April 9. This Day both Houses of Parliament met, pursuant to their Adjournment. Yesterday, being the first Day of the Quarter Sessions at Guildhall, there being no Locum Te- nens, the Court was opened by the Recorder, Sir William Stephenson, Mr. Alderman Peers, and Mr. Alderman Wilkes, the only Magistrates pre- sent. They proceeded to swear in the Grand Jury ; who this Afternoon found Bills of Indict- ment against W. Whitham, the Messenger of the House of Commons, for assaulting and taking into Custody John Miller, Printer ; and against E. Twine Carpenter, for assaulting and seizing the Body of J. Wheeble, without lawful Au- thority. A Correspondent says, we shall now fee whe- ther any Court of Justice dares put a Stop to the Law, and tell us plainly that we are Slaves. If any of them refuses to take Cognizance of the Affair, and submit it to a Jury, we are undone; we have no further Inheritance in the Law. -— The arbitrary Will of the House of Commons is our only Law. Last Night a Courier, with Dispatches of Im- portance, arrived at his Excellency's the Prince de Masserano's, the Spanish Ambassador, at Powis- House. And This Morning a Courier arrived at the French Ambassadors with Dispatches from the Court of Versailles. Notwithstanding the Ships of War destined for Falkland's Islands are failed, for repossessing us of Port Egmont, yet many Bets are laid among the Politicians at the West End of the Town that they will return without accomplishing the Task. be decided in Favour of Great Britain, England, we hear, is to give up another Island in Lieu of it. The late Proceeding of the French and Spanish Courts are expected to be laid before two great Houses during the Course of this Week. All the Officers belonging to the Regiments in Jamaica, have received Orders immediately to join their respective Regiments. We hear four more Ships of the Line are or- dered to be fitted out at Portsmouth with all Ex- pedition. His Majesty's Ship the Barfleur, of 90 Guns, Capt. Hamond, now at the Nore, in which Lord Howe was to have proceeded to the Mediterra- nean, is ordered to repair, without Loss of Time, to Spithead. All the Ships of the Line of Battle, in Com- mission at Plymouth, are likewise ordered up to the general Rendezvous at Spithead.— This occa- sions some Speculation. According to the Letters brought by Saturday's Mail, several of the principal States of Europe, are at the Eve of some very great Event. At Vienna, Hundreds of Horses, Mules, and Car- riages destined for the Use of the Emperor, and the General Officers and Commanders in Hun- gary are seen palling through that Capital; and the different Regiments in March for that Kingdom, have Orders to repair there directly, without making any Stay in the Places where they sleep. The Report of a new Augmentation in the Imperial Forces, with the daily Conferences held between Count Kaunitz and the Prussian and Russian Ministers, are anotherCicumstance, which seem to forebode speedy War. But the Advices from Mons are still more alarming. They say that every Thing there is in Motion; the Troops, in general, having not only received an Order to march into Upper Austria, but also that a second Courier was arrived to hasten their Departure. In Consequence of the above, the Garrisons at Luxembourg, Brabant, Flanders, and the Hai- nault, are already in march ; and, if these Ad- vices say true, will be replaced by French Troops, who are likewise said to be already in Motion, in Normandy and French Flanders. From Ferrara also they write, that all the Austrian Troops in Italy, except two Regiments, have likewise re- ceived Orders to march directly for Hungary ; and that 2000 Mules are providing for the same Purpose. The Poles, we are told, consider these Preparations as nothing more than the winding up of the Plot, which has so long desolated their Country; but if the French Troops are to oc- cupy Austrian Flanders, the Dutch will do well to look to their Barrier; and England, in that Case, may be more concerned than at first Sight she may seem to be. Extract of a Letter from Madras, April 24. " Heyder Ally Cawn, with whom the Eng- lish were at War on the Coast of Coromandel in 1768, is now besieged by Nanah, the King of the Maratta Horse, in Vidanor Fort. Heyder has sent down to Madras, praying for Assistance and Relief from the English, wanting chiefly Field Pieces, Cannon, & c. but the English re- fused him, and Hand neuter, taking no Part in their Disputes. The Nabob, Mahomed Ally Cawn, of Arcot, now resides at Madras, and has almost paid off the monstrous Debt he con- tracted with the English, who supported him against Heyder Ally Cawn in the War in 1768." Advice is received of the Arrival of the 56th and 68th Regiments at Gibraltar, and of the 19th and 30th Regiments being ready to embark for England, and to fail the first Easterly Wind. — This Account is dated the 8th of March. On Friday last the Bill against a Hosier in Cole- man Street, for crying out, when his Majesty went last to the House, " No Lord Mayor, no King," was thrown out by the Jury at the New Guildhall, Westminster. Last Friday the Quarter Sessions of the Peace for the City and Liberty of Westminster ended at the Guildhall. Mr. Keys, who was apprehended for assaulting a Constable at the House of Com- mons, and gave Bail, was surrendered, and sent to Bridewell, in order to take his Trial next Sessions. We hear that Mr. Whitworth, and other Mi- nority Members, are determined, when the House meet again, to move for Mr. Wilkes being brought up, although the Majority have evaded the Day, at present. We hear that the Committee appointed by the City to assist the Lord Mayor in a legal Defence, is in Danger of Imprisonment in Newgate. Should such a violent Step be taken by the House of Commons, there would be an End of every Thing; and they had better fend all the City at once to the Tower. Yesterday Morning some of the Nobility, and several Members of the House of Commons, visited the Lord Mayor and Mr. Alderman Oliver in the Tower; as did also several Ladies of Dis- tinction. Amongst the many Testimonies of the affec- tionate Regard paid to the Right Honourable the Lord Mayor in the Tower, are daily Presents to his Lordship from Town and Country. Addresses are preparing from all the different Wards of this City to be presented to the Lord Mayor during the Course of this Week. It is currently reported that a certain Great Lady, concerned at the Complaints of the People, has been very pressing to her Consort in Favour of two conscientious Magistrates, as she calls them ; and it is imagined file has been so successful, that for the future there will be but one Cabinet. There is something Angular in stationing that very Company of the Third Regiment, which committed the Massacre in St. George's Fields, close by Mr. Oliver's Windows. The very Man who was accused of young Mr. Allen's Murder, keeps Sentry under the Alderman's Nose. It is to be hoped that no military Execution is intended. with Chalk on the Back- Door of the Mansion House, " The Wrath of the King is like the " Roaring of a Lion, and he that provoketh him " sinneth against his own Soul." A great Crowd gathering round took Offence at the Scrawl, rol- led the Writer in the Kennel, and afterwards ducked him in the Thames. INTELLIGENCE EXTRAORDINARY. WE hear that in consequence of the Orders issued by the House of Commons for Mr. Wilkes's Attendance upon the said House, on Monday the 8th of April, that Gentleman went up Yesterday, accompanied by Mr. H. Cotes, R. Morris, Esq; and 43 other Gentlemen of the Bill of' Rights, when after waiting exactly 43 Minutes on the Stair Head, and no Person appearing to call him in, he recorded his Attendance, by chalking up the cabalistical No. 45 on the Lobby Door; but it is expected that this Record, as well as that of Mr. Witham the Messenger, will be erased by Order of the House, and a second Time for his Attendance appointed, when the Ministry are certain the House will not fit.

EARLY INTELLIGENCE, received from our Correspondents in London, dated Wed- nesday, April 10. YESTERDAY a vast Concourse of People as- sembled in the Streets of this City, ex- pecting that the Lord Mayor and Mr. Alderman Oliver would go to the House of Commons, as it was reported that Orders were sent to them to attend in their Places; but finding, after waiting some Hours, that they did not go, the Populace went up to the House, and, as the mi- nisterial Members passed, saluted them with Hisses and Groans, but offered no Violence. Late in the Afternoon a Motion was made in the House to discharge the Lord Mayor and Mr. Oliver out of Custody, when several of the Majority Members joined the Minority, being ashamed of the Proceedings of the House against those two worthy Magistrates, who had acted only according to Law, and to the Oath they had ta- ken. Serjeant Glynn said, That, if the War- rant had been legal ( which he was certain was not) yet Witham was not named in the Warrant, and therefore had no Power from the House to aft. The Ministry opposed the Motion with great Rancour, and it was thought the House would set very late; however, it is the general Opinion of People that they will be continued in the Tower till the Parliament breaks up. Last Night it was strongly reported, that, in cafe the Lord Mayor and Mr. Oliver should be continued in the Tower, the City Militia will be ordered to patrole the Streets, to prevent any Riots or Disorders that may happen upon the Oc- casion : Besides, it is said, that, if that Method is not taken, the Guards will be ordered to pa- trole the Streets, which will totally take away the Privileges of the Citizens, and dragoon them into a Submission. The Court of Common Council, which was to have been held this Day, and the calling toge- ther the Livery Men To- morrow, is postponed till the Resolution of the House of Commons is known, whether they intend, or not, to con- tinue the Lord Mayor and Mr. Oliver in the Tower; by which Means they will be better able to judge what Steps will be most proper to be taken on so important an Affair. WORCESTER, Thursday, April II. At our Fair, last Saturday, upwards of 300 Pockets of Hops were sold ; the general Prices from 4l 4s. to 5l. 5s. per Hundred. On Monday last, at the General Quarter Ses- sions for this City, Joseph Deaken and Stephen Strickland, mentioned in a former Paper, of being convicted of unlawfully buying Leather Shreads, from a Parer of Leather, and who gave Bail to prosecute their Convictions, after a long Hearing in their Defence, the Court, sensible of the Justness of the said Convictions, were pleased to confirm the fame, and ordered them to pay Twenty Pounds each; which was accordingly done, agreeable to an Act of Parliament of the 22d of George the Second. A few Days since the Rev. Thomas Biddulph, Clerk, Minister of Bengworth, in this County, and Chaplain to the Right Hon. the Earl of Hard- wick, was instituted to the Vicarage of Patitow, in the County of Cornwall, to which he was pre- sented by Humphry Prideaux, Esq; of Prideaux Cattle, in the said County. On Thursday last was married at Tewkesbury, Mr. William Cliffe, to Miss Collet, Daughter of Henry Collet, Esq; of that Place. A few Days since died, in the 67th Year of his Age, at Bishop's Castle, Shropshire, that very worthy, much esteemed Man, Mr. Thomas Drew.

IO 11 5 o lb. 0 1 4 SIR, HAVE sent you a few political Anecdotes which may be depended upon. They are curious and interesting to the Public, as they shew the State of Politics at two Great Houses. CARLTON HOUSE. THE Influence of the P. of W. over the public Councils of this Kingdom, since his present Ma- jesty's Accession, is neither doubted nor unknown. But during the last two Months, some Circum- stances have happened, which afford Room to sus- pect that her Influence, if not wholly at an End, is very much upon the Decline. It has been asserted by Persons, whose Situations give them an Oppor- tunity of knowing, that the late Convention, or Truce with Spain, was made contrary to the Ad- vice and Wish of the P. of W. And within these few Weeks it has been declared, in a Way that may not be improperly called, by Authority from Carl- ton House, that the Princess has been adverse to all the late Violences against the Press, and the City, that she has repeatedly advised his M. to change his Ministers, and that the Odium of their Misconduct has been unjustly thrown upon her. BUCKINGHAM HOUSE. THE little Squadron of late Clerks, but now Ministers, usually stiled the Carlton House Junto, viz. Elliot, Dyson, Jenkinson, & c. having found the Influence of the Princess upon the Decline, have deserted from her Interest, and enlisted at Buckingham House. These Men are for all Sorts of Violences; and Wellbore Ellis, who calls himself a King's Man, is appointed the Hack of the Party; that is, the Maker, or Doer, of all their Motions. Lord North has no Influence over this little Fac- tion, and very little Connection with it. Hence arises that manifest Difference there is among the Ministers in the House of Commons. Lord North, adhering to his original Engagement at Carlton House, has shewn an Aversion to all the late Pro- ceedings against the Printers, and the City. But the little Junto, which may now be very properly called the Buckingham House Cabinet, have pushed Matters forward in Spite of Lord North ; and hav- ing got Possession of the —, they have more than once beat him in Council. His Power as Minister is therefore at an End; and as soon as the present Session is closed, he will certainly go out. All the late Violences are to be ascribed to Buckingham House, and its new- formed Cabinet. As there can be no Plot without a Woman, Lady Gower ( a Scot, and a Stewart) has reserved to herself the Part of Female to the Faction. She has already given her Husband the Garter; and, by a Scotch Kind of In- trigue, for which she is noted, and being supported by the Princess of Brunswic, whose Woman she was, she expects to make Peg Trentham Prime Minister. P. S. You may assure the Public that the Nego- tiation with Lord Camden is broke off. This Ne- gotiation was probably the Cause of a late Back- wardness of some Persons, both at the Court End of the Town, and in the City, as well as of the Delay in calling the Common Hall. To shew the Chain of such probable Connection, or Influence, will not be improper. Lord Camden tells Mr. Dunning, Mr. Dunning tells Lord Shelburne, Lord Shelburne influences Alderman Townsend, Alderman Townsend manages Parson Home, and Parson Home persuades Messrs. Bellas, Lovell, & c. that no Measure is right which he does not propose to them............ Neither is it improbable, that the Court may renew the Negotiation, now they find what Use can be made of it.

The PROPRIETORS of the LADY's MAGAZINE to the FAIR - SEX. The very extraordinary Success this Work has obtained from the Public in general, and the Ladies in particular, throughout the British Domi- nions, has induced us not only to enlarge our Plan, but to engage several Writers of the first Eminence to give their Assistance in bringing this Performance to a still higher Degree of Perfection. It is with Pleasure we find the English Ladies every Day improving in their intellectual Endow- ments. They have been long celebrated for their personal Charms; they have long been the most beautiful, and are now become the most sensible Women in the Universe: Wherefore it shall be our Employment to promote, upon every Occasion, that Emulation for polite Learning which now so emi- nently distinguishes their fair Country- women; but the Authors do not confine their Miscellany to the dry Pursuits of Literature alone. Every Female Avocation is attended to, and NEEDLE- WORK, in all its Branches, must be considered as a Subject of great Utility in this Performance: The most ap- proved PATTERNS will, therefore, continue to be presented to the Reader, without any additional Expence. In this we consult not only the Embellish- ment, but also the Profit of our fair Patronesses........ They will here find, for Six- pence, among a Variety of Entertainment and numerous Copper- plates, a Pattern, which alone at the Shops would, in most Instances, coli four Times the Price of the Ma- gazine. Several Ladies of Taste and Learning have en- gaged to superintend that Part of the Work which immediately regards the Vocations and Avocation, of their own Sex, they flatter themselves they will obtain not only the Approbation, but the Acknow- ledgments of their Fair Country- women, by endea- vouring to form the most desireable of all Characters, an ACCOMPLISHED WOMAN. TO effect this In- tention, Histories will be given of virtuous and vi- cious Women, properly contrasted, in order to point out to the unexperienced Reader the Snares that are constantly spread for Innocence and Beauty. This Article, in particular, demands the Attention of Teachers and Governesses, who are charged with the Education of young Ladies, and is recommended, with Confidence, to Parents of all Conditions, who are animated with a proper Regard for the Welfare of their Daughters. The Proprietors cannot conclude their Address, without repeatedly requesting the Correspondence of the Ingenious of both Sexes, but particularly the Ladies, upon any Topic included in their ex- tensive Plan; and every Hint that may tend to enhance the Value of this Work will be kindly received, and duly attended to. AGood - accustomed Inn, known by the Sign of the Three Tons, situate in the. Load- Street, Bewdley, near the Barley Market; con- sisting of a good Kitchen, one Front Parlour, a large Back Parlour, and a Shop in the Front, which hath usually been lett by the Tenant who occupied the above Premisses, but is now void, and may, if necessary, be converted into a Parlour; seven Rooms on the first Floor, with Garrets over them, a good Brewhouse, with Coolers, a Pump, and Lead Pipe for conveying the Wort into the Cellar ( which is capable of holding 13 or 14 Hogsheads) as also three Bins for Wine or Spirituous Liquors.

Letter from the Reverend Mr. LANTHOINe, to Dr. NORRIS, of Duke- Street, Westminster, SIR , MAN, in all Probability, is not liable to more Diseased than there are Meant of Cure ; as with a weakly Constitution. subject to Disorders of the Head, Stomach, and Lungs, toge- ther with Cholics, Palpitation of the Heart, the Rheumatism & c. an oldAge may be attained: This is a Truth of which is myself am a 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 tarnen, I have bad Death often before my Eyes ; and believe it bas been owing to my own Card and Precaution that I am now to be numbered amongst the living, It is most natural, and highly consistent with Reason and good sense, that we are affected with a bad state of Health. we should have Recourse to Medicine and every neces- sary Means of Cure. In a Word, on the 12th of October, 1770 ( for this is the Circumstance at present chiefly to be con- sidered) a Cold in my Head, being a Disease to which I am frequently subject, threatened me with a total Suffocation; insomuch, that my knowledge and Experience in usual Remedies failing me, I concluded that my latter End was and Hand; notwithstanding which I was so happy as to meet with a perfect Cure from 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, wonderfully restored; so that, notwithstanding my experiencing many excellent Medicines, by which i have hitherto prolonged my Life, I do affirm, that these Drops are, in my opinion. the most salutary and effica- cious Medicine in the World. I am, Sir, Your humble Servant. No 14, Watling- Street. P. LANTHOINE.

The Character of this excellent Medicines too well established to need any Gloss to set it off; the Author. finding many Articles in it much advanced in their Price finds himself under the disagreeable Necessity of raising it to One Shilling and Three pence the Bottle. MAREDANT's DROPS. To Mr. Norton, Surgeon, Golden- Square. SIR, Having some Time since been greatly afflicted with the Scurvy, which appeared in great Blotches and other Erup- tions 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, have to Objection. Chancery Lane, I am your very humble Servant, Dec. 5, 1770. THOMAS WLIIIAM PINCK. Any Person still doubtful of the Efficacy of this Medicine may bv applying to Mr. NORTON, Surgeon, the West Side of Golden- square, near Piccadilly, London, the only Author and Proprietor, where these Drops are sold in Bottles of Six Shillings each) be fully convinced of their good Effects, by being referred to many People of Credit, who have been cured of the Leprosy, Scurvy, Ulcers, the Evil, Fistulas Piles, long- continued Inflammations of the Eyes, and every other Disorder arising from a Foulness in the Blood. They may be taken in any Season, without the least Inconvenience or Hindrance of Business. They also perfect Digestion, and amazingly create an Appetite. 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 De- gree of Malignancy be ever so great. it is an Excellency peculiar to these Pills, to make directly to the complaining Parts, and enter into Contest with the offending Matter which they soon dislodge and expell. They are declared Experience to be a Preserver of Health, as well as a Re- storer, by taking only eight single Pills ( as 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 uni- versal Fame. These Pills are most worthy a Place in the Ca- binet of Masters and Captains of Ships, and the more so for that they require no Confinement, nor Restraint of Diet will keep good in all Climates any Length of Time, and effect a Cure even when Salivation fails. Sold by the Patentee ( in Boxes of 2s. 6d. each) at his House No. 16, Bride Lane, Fleet Street; who effectually cures Gleets and Seminal Weaknesses: Also sold by Ap- pointment by Mr. Hart, Druggist, in Wolverhampton, Aris and Co.
