Price Two- pence Halfpenny. THURSDAY, July 25, 1771. Numb SATURDAY's POST. Arrived the Mails from Holland and France. Warsaw, June 26. WE have just received Accounts from Volhynia, that a Courier had passed through there from Prince Dolgorucki's Army in his Way to Petersbourg, carrying thither the important Tidings that the whole Crimea had sur- rendered to the Russian Scepter Stockholm, June 21. His Majesty, desirous that the Offices in his Disposal should be con- ferred according to Merit, has issued an Ordi- - nance, prohibiting every Kind of Recommenda- tion of Candidates for vacant Places. Vienna, " July 3. The military Preparations here still continue, and Recruits are now raising with the utmost Activity. The Army forming in Hungary already amounts to 70,000 Men. LONDON, Thursday, July l8. It was Yesterday Morning strongly reported up- on ' Change, that the French have lately sent into America a powerful Fleet, which is cruising at the Back of the Western Islands. That their Pro- ject might pass undiscovered by the English, the ships of which this Fleet is composed, are said to have sailed, one at a Time, from different Ports in France. The West- India Merchants seem to think, this Account may be true, from some Ad vices they have received from their Correspondents Abroad, intimating that they apprehend the French had some Design on our American Settle- ments, and that they believed a War would first break out in that Part of the World. Dispatches of a very private, and it is said a very important Nature, have been sent to the Garrisons of Gibraltar and Minorca ; and all the Officers that are now absent from Quarters, are command cd to return with all possible Expedition. His Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester's Voyage to the Mediterranean, which was men- tioned in a former Paper to take Place next Month, Is postponed to the Middle of October, for some very material Reasons. The Want of a Supply of Timber for the seve- ral Dock- Yards has long been complained of, to remedy which, several Ships are now fitting out at Plymouth, for the Importation of Timber from America. By various Accounts from the Coast of Africa and the West Indies, we are informed, that the Slave Trade is so fallen off that it is imagined some very extraordinary Event cannot be far dis- tant in Favour of a wretched Race of Individuals, whose Complexions have, for Centuries, exposed them to all the Severities and Indignities of Ser- vitude, that alone ends with their Lives. The last Letters from the Mediterranean con- tradict the Report that the Emperor of Morocco had declared War against France. By the extraordinary Preparations that are making in the Royal Apartments at Windsor, it is apprehended that the ensuing Installation, on Thursday next the 25th Instant, will be the most magnificent that hath been known in the present Century. The Queen is to dine in an Apartment be- tween the Chapel and the great Hall, where she designs to view the Ceremony from a Window ; but his Majesty will dine in the same Hall with the Knights, after the whole is over. It is said that the two Sheriffs Elect, Mess. Wilkes and Bull, have received an Invitation from Earl T to be present at the Installation at Windsor, who undertakes to accommodate them with Apartments, and with Seats in the Chapel. We hear that above two hundred Clergymen and their Ladies have had Tickets. This Morning 100 Guineas was offered by a Waiter at a Coffee House at the Exchange, to a Gentleman, for two Tickets to obtain Admit- tance into the Apartments at Windsor, to see the Installation, which the Gentleman refused. Lord Bute was supposed to have a tolerable Sweating the last Installation, when he was instal- led himself for on Account of his being the ju- nior Knight, his Seat at the Table accidentally happened to be among those Noblemen of the Order, who were openly in Opposition to his Measures; consequently he was deprived of all that Pleasure, which arises from free convivial Conversation. - Next Week Lord Bute is una- voidably obliged to walk Arm in Arm with Lord Temple : If Vinegar and Oil make a palatable Mixture, Lord Bute and Lord Temple, like Flint and Steel, may strike Fire from each other On Tuesday Night an Express was brought to the King, at Richmond, by one of his Danish Majesty's Aides de Camp, with the agreeable News of her Danish Majesty's happy Delivery of a Princess on the 7th Instant. It is remarkable chat the above Gentleman performed his Journey in three Days less Time than any Messenger ever did. An Express was brought the same Evening to the Princess Dowager of Wales, with Advice of the above happy Event. Yesterday Mr. Alderman Nash sat at the Man- sion House for the Lord Mayor. One Alder- man will sit every Day during his Lordship's Ab- sence ( which will not be above six Days if the wick, with upwards of ninety of the Freeholders of Middlesex in that Neighbourhood. The ut- most Harmony and Chearfuiness prevailed. Se- veral Rounds of small Cannon were fired to the Healths of the Electors of Middlesex, the Livery of London, the Lord Mayor, and the Sheriffs elect. Mr. Wilkes assured them of his invaria- ble Attachment and Fidelity in every Capacity to the public Cause, and of the Care he would take to preserve their Rights inviolate, as far as de- pended on him as Sheriff. One of the Toasts drank with three Chears, was, " May the She- " riffs elect find it their Duty to employ sharp " Axes and strong Halters against the Enemies " of Old England, and may they effectually do " their Duty." Yesterday several Papers were scattered thro' the Neighbourhood of St. James's, bearing only these Words: " To your Tents, O Israel! bind " your Nobles in Chains, and your Princes in " Fetters of Iron." They were dispersed by a tall thin Man, shabbily dressed, who appeared as if disordered in his Senses, and seemed no less a religious, than a political Enthusiast. This Day a Cart upon a new Construction, made by Moore, who so long amused the Town with his Project for Carriages to run without Horses, was tried in Moorsields and performed extremely well. By the Help of two Horses only it draws thirty six Sacks of Coals with great Ease ; whereas in the common Carts, they are obliged to have three Horses to twelve Sacks. The Members of the famous Coterie have been either so hurt, or so reclaimed, by the repeated Censure of the Public on their Meeting, that they have unanimously changed it to " The Club" Mons. Francois, the late Resident, or Charge des Affairs here from the Court of France, it is said, acquired, during his Continuance in that Office, a Fortune of near 300,0001. by dabbling in ' Change Alley. The Death of the late William Kirby, of Kew, Esq; was occasioned by breaking a Blood Vessel, in lifting a Child into the Air, with his Arms extended, on Saturday last, at his own Door, when he fell down on the Spot, and instantly ex- pired. Mr. Kirby belonged to the Board of Works, and was a great Favourite with the King, who made him a Present of the House at Kew, in which he lately resided. Mrs. Kirby is House- keeper at Richmond Lodge. Yesterday se'nnight the Bath, Trowbridge, and Cirencester Machines were robbed on Hounslow Heath, by three young Men, well mounted, who took from the Passengers of the Bath 25l. in Cash, and two Gold Watches. In the Trowbridge there were but two Passengers, a Lady and a Gentle- man, from the latter of whom they took what Money he had, but the Lady declaring she had only Three- pence, they rifled her Pockets, and finding she had no other Prize, returned the Half- pence. What Booty these young Adventurers met with in the Cirencester Machine we have not been able to learn. Tuesday the only Son to a Gentleman of consi- derable Fortune at Highgate ( who lately married without the Consent of his Father, on which he threatened to disinherit him) shot himself through the Head, and died on the Spot. Yesterday a Woman was whipped from Fleet- Street to Temple- Bar for decoying Children from their Parents, and then putting ont their Eyes, in order to beg with them. Presented.] The Rev.

OUNTRY NEWS. July 20. At our Election on Thursday, was taken in six different Booths erected purpose in Chippenham, and began be- ne and Ten o'Clock in the Morning, Yesterday about Four; when the She- sting up the Numbers ( which were as declared Mr. Morgan duly elected : For Mr. Morgan 742 Mr. Morris 534 Majority 208 Morris made a very polite Speech, in told Mr. Morgan, he would not so far as to wish him Joy on the Occasion, he had all his other good Wishes; and that every Thing that had been done or on this Occasion, which the sanguine or Zeal of his Friends might have dictated, now be buried in Oblivion. To which organ readily assented. He further hoped, Decency and Order that had been ob- at this Election would be an Example to and tho' he could not suppress the fre- Acclamations of his Friends, he had done thing in his Power to prevent any Tumult and to preserve the utmost good Order. hartily thanked his Friends for the support had given him, and hoped the World was ced he had not formed a frivolous or trifling sition. Mr. Morris then waited 0n Mr. an through a very large Concourse of People, might receive any Insult or Interruption, he was very desirous of preventing. ucester, July 22. On Saturday last our Assizes when Wm. Butt, for Horse- stealing; and Seal, for House- breaking; received Sentence ath; but were afterwards reprieved.

Jones, Mary Gibbons, Starling, Rachael Gregory, Mary Price, Samuel Thomas, to be burnt in the Hand, to remain in Goal six Months. Eleven were uitted and one discharged by Proclamation. LONDON, Saturday, July 20. It is confidently said that the newly- appointed retary of State is so tired of his Office, as to e already desired Leave to resign, which will accepted, as soon as a Person is fixed on to ceed him. Lord North and the Duke of Grafton have own very intimate within the last Fortnight. ey have been seen walking Arm in Arm. Mr. Wilkes has, within these few Days, paid veral Visits at the West End of the Town, which is expected will furnish a Crust for our Po- cians. Notwithstanding the various Accounts of Ex- rsions intended to be made by their Majesties, ter the Installation, it is now assured that their isits will be confined to Windsor. We hear, from very good Authority, that most the Nobility and Gentry, who intend appear- ing at Windsor at the ensuing Installation, are already provided from France with ready- made juits of Silk Cloaths on the Occasion.— Strange ! that while they seemingly do Honour to Saint George of England, they should be essentially erving Saint Dennis of France. Dr. Solander and the other Gentlemen, who lately sailed round the World in the Endeavour Frigate, spent four Months at George's Land, one of the new discovered Islands. They made them- selves Masters of the Language there, and two of the Natives came with them to Batavia, where they were carried off be Sickness, together with many of the Crew. At Batavia the two Strangers were amazingly struck with the Sight of Coaches and Morses, having never seen either Horses, Cows, or Sheep, at George's Land, though they have many Hogs. They were extremely surprised also at the Sight of themselves and Company in a Looking- Glass. Dr. Solander and his Company touched at near forty other undiscovered Islands, not known to any other Europeans, but which have Plenty of Inha- bitants ; and have brought over with them above a thousand different Species of Plants, none of which were ever known in Europe before. The last Ships from Bengal, bring Account of the Death of Robert Wilmott, Esq; eldest Son to the Right Hon. Sir Eardley Wilmott, ( after a Re- sidence there of seven Years) in the Flower of his Age, being only 23 Years old ; he was universally lamented by all who knew him. The private Adventurers on board the home- ward bound East- Indiamen have made a very losing Voyage both out and home. The Sentence of the Court Martial at Minorca on Lord George Lenox is said to be to this Effect, viz. That he do make a public Submission to General Mostyn, the Governor, for his improper Conduct to him, and that the same be entered in the public Orders. The litter Part of the Sen- tence, we hear, his Majesty has been pleased to remit, and that the Submission be made to the General the Presence of the Field Officers only. The Foundation of this Court Martial, we hear, was Letter from Lord George to the General, in which were contained some oblique Insinua- tions relative to the Conduct of the General. Orders were on Tuesday last sent from the Ad- miralty- Office to the Commissioners of Chatham, Sheerness, Portsmouth and Plymouth, for an im- mediate Account to be transmitted of the Number of Frigates which are fit to be employed as Cruizers, with their Names, Number of Guns, & c. On Thursday four Vessels, of 300 Tons Bur- then each, were taken up in the River as Trans- ports on Government Account, to carry Build- ing Materials, Stores, & c. to the Coasts of Gui- nea and Africa, where two Forts are building by the English. The Court of Spain is so well satisfied with the late Convention, that it is certain their Am- bassador at this Court has assured our Ministry, that no Hostilities will be renewed, on their Part, for three Months to come; which has given ge- neral Satisfaction. Letters from Cadiz mention, that three Spanish Men of War lately fell in with five Algerine Xe- beques, within twenty Leagues of Cape Malaga, and, after a smart Engagement, took three of them, funk the other two, and made for Cadiz with their Prizes. Upon examining them, it ap- peared that they had been out on a Cruize five Weeks; and, during that Time, had robbed se- veral Merchant Ships of the most valuable Part of their Cargoes. The three taken had on board a large Quantity of French Wines and Brandy, which it is supposed they had taken out of some French Ships. These Letters further say, that, as the Officers could produce no Authority from the Dey of Algiers for committing such Hostili- ties, they will be dealt with by the Spaniards as Pirates. The last Letters from the Mediterranean con- tradict the Report that the Emperor of Morocco had declared War against France. Mr. Coles, an eminent Stationer in Fleet- Street, has received Orders for many hundred Reams of Cartridge Paper, for the Service of the Empress of Russia; as much, it is said, as will serve 30,000 Men a whole Campaign. This does not look as if the Court of Petersbourgh was 0n the Point of a speedy Accommodation with the Porte. Letter from Rochester, July 19. " We lay on Wednesday at Woolwich, Wind and Tide bound for five Hours; from thence his Lordship and the Aldermen, in the Chatham, and his Retinue in the Trinity Yacht, proceeded for Gravesend, where they arrived between Ten and Eleven. His Lordship and his Brethren met with the most respectful Reception there, from the Mayor, and several Aldermen; there was alio Ringing of Bells, and Illuminations. I must pass over the other Occurrences to come to this Morn- ing's Business, which was very grand. " Just after Ten the Procession began from the Bull Inn, on Foot, to embark in the Yachts, in the following Order: The Lord Mayor's Suite. His Lordship, an Alderman of Rochester, and Chaplain. On the Left Hand, the Aldermen of London, and then a Number of Gentlemen. On getting on board, Guns were fired near the City Stairs, amidst the Acclamations of the People, which were repeated all the Way from the Shore, especially along Chatham Yard, till their Arrival near Upnor Castle. On landing, the Procession was marshalled in the same grand Order as at first setting out. His Lordship, and the nume- rous Company, advanced to the Stone, on which the State Sword was immediately laid. Mrs. Hill, by Way of Claim, had caused her Name to be engraved on a Part of the Stone, which, by his Lordship's Order, was erased, and the new Inscription placed thereon was, Brass Crosby, Esq; Lord Mayor, 1771. Upon this Mr. Common Cryer proclaimed Silence, and pronounced the following Toasts, which his Lordship and his noble Company drank: May God preserve the Church, King, Queen, and all the Royal Fa- mily:— May God preserve the City of London, and may the Rights and Franchises of the Citi- zens of London be protected to the latest Poste- rity : — May God preserve the City of Rochester, and the Men of Kent:— May God preserve the British Fleet. " After this, small Silver Pieces were given by his Lordship to the Boys and Children regularly, and then plentifully thrown promiscuously among the Populace. The Return was very grand, tho' the Wind was extremely high. At Three his Lordship, accompanied by several Aldermen and Common Council of Rochester ( the Mayor very ill) Mr. Calcraft, the Members, and all the At- tendants; dined at the Bull. The whole Cere- mony was conducted in the most solemn Manner, and the Company was extremely brilliant, and every Demonstration of Joy and Respect on the Occasion was paid by the City of Rochester." It is pretty certain that the City of London mean to make a very strong Push to recover the Rights of Conservancy ; and it is imagined on no contemptible Foundation. We hear that the Laws against importing Hops from Flanders and other foreign Countries, will be put in Execution with the utmost Rigour. A Gentleman who lately arrived from Ameri- ca, on learning the excessive high Price of all Man- ner of Provisions in England, expressed his Won- der that the labouring People did not move to our Colonies abroad, as they might live there in a comfortable Plenty, and leave the proud Owners of Wealth here to cultivate their Lands themselves, which would lead them to a juster Consideration of the Poor. The inclosing a Common which used to feed many Families of poor Cottagers, produces the Erection of a Workhouse; a miserable Ex- change! A Citizen lately invited a Nobleman to Dinner, and treated him like a Brother Peer, in the most elegant Manner. The Cit in few Days returned the Visit, and expected nothing less than the choicest Wines, and the most luxurious Repast, but, to his great Mortification and Disappointment, was entertained with roast Beef, Plum- Pudding, and Port, attended with a modest Reproof Last Night Mr. Moor are another Experi- ment with a new- constructed Carriage. He has hung the Body of a common Coach, reversed, between two large Wheels, which are made nine Feet six Inches in the Diameter, and draws it with a Horse in Shafts, like those used for a Chaise. The Passengers, of Course, fit Side- ways within, and the Driver is placed upon the Top of the Coach. Eight Persons were drawn in this Carriage last Night, with great Ease, by a single Horse, and this Afternoon he proposes to take a Ride in it to Highgate, and on Monday he sets off with six People for Lewes Races. — The Coal Carriage was tried again last Night with 31 Sacks, making two Chaldron and a half, to Hat- ton Garden, drawn by two Horses only to the Foot of Holborn- Hill, when a third was put to help them up that Steep. This they performed with as much Ease as a single Chaldron is com- monly drawn by three Horses. We are however, inclined to think this Contrivance will prove ra- ther more ingenious than useful, since the amazing Height and Width of their Wheels most, we fear, prevent their being generally used in narrow Streets without tearing down the Lamps, and doing other Damage ; should two of them also meet in such Streets, it would be impossible for them to pass, or even should they meet with ano- ther Carriage; but probably he may remedy this by making them narrower. On Thursday a Dispensation passed the Seal to enable the Rev. Moses Cotterell, D. L. late of Magdalen- College, Oxford to hold the Vica- rage of Ansley, in Warwickshire, with the Vica- rage of Kinsbury, in the same County. Threatening Letters are slipped under the Nap- kins laid at Table for the French King, and yet no Discovery of the Authors has been made. Se- veral Persons, however, have been apprehended, and cast into Chains without any Formality. An old discontented French Officer has been sent to the Bastile for asserting confidently, at a Coffee- House, that the French King would be forced to yield, the Chancellor to tie a Rope about his own Neck, and the Duke d'Aiguillon to drink Poison. A few Days since the Brother of a noble Peer, whilst the Horses were changing at the Post- House at Hounslow, having some Words with a Lady of the Town who was travelling with him, broke the China, Glasses, and whatever he could get at; the Lady, on her Part, did not remain un- active, but seized every Thing which he had overlooked, and even demolished the Pictures. The old white- headed Postmaster endeavouring to get into his Room, to save his Goods, was knocked down, and the Gentleman, without making any Compensation for the Damage they had done went off like a Man of Quality. On Thursday Night, about Ten o'Clock, a Man was enticed into a House of ill Fame in Fleet- Lane, by a common Prostitute. He was conducted to a Room, whilst his Lady stayed with the Landlady, under Pretence of giving Orders for some Liquor. He was no sooner in the Room, than the Person who lighted him up Stairs clapped to the Door, and locked him in, without a Can- dle. In a Minute's Time three Men, with Crapes on their Faces, went up Stairs, threatening to murder him if he made the least Noise. They then robbed him of his Money, ( about Forty Shillings) his Watch, and Silver Buckles, and tying his own Handkerchief over his Eyes, led him into the Street; so that he could take no Observation of the House. At the last Session at the Old Bailey a Man, who goes by the Name of Dunny Jemmy, was capitally convicted of Burglary, and, pretending to be deaf and dumb, was indulged with an In terpreter; but, since his Condemnation, Dunny Jemmy can both hear and talk, as well as any Man living. Yesterday Afternoon, Sweetham and Howard two young Fellows convicted last Sessions of com- pounding a penal Statute, stood on the Pillory in Smithfield. At first the Populace who were very numerous, began to pelt them, but Hand- Bills being dispersed, signifying that they were drawn into the Affair by another Person, who made off with the best Part of the Cash, the Pelting ceased, and they stood quietly the rest of the Time. The Cafe was this; they met with a narrow- wheeled Waggon, loaded with more Sacks of Flour than al- lowed by Act of Parliament, and had more Horses; upon which they took off two of the Horses, but afterwards agreed to restore them to the Waggo- ner, on his giving them four Guineas.

OTWITHSTANDING our Hopes of an Ac- commodation between the Turks and Ruffians, Hostilities still continue. According to the last Letters from the Le- vant, the Ruffians have debarked a Number of Troops at the Island of Tenedos, situate to the South East of Lemnos, in order to lay Siege to the Cattle which defends the Port, which is very proper to favour their pro- jected Enterprize against the Dardanelles, from whence this Place is but a few Leagues distant. This News is confirmed by Letters from Otranto. LONDON, Tuesday, July 23. St. James' , July 23. Their Majesties, and their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales, the Bishop of Osnabrugh, Prince William, and the Princess Royal, propose to set out from Rich- mond To- morrow in the Afternoon, for Wind- sor, in order to be present at the Installation on Thursday next. London Gazette. This Morning a Detachment from the three Regiments of Foot Guards, confiding of eight hundred Men, marched from St. James's Park for Wind for, where they are to be encamped du- ring the Installation ; and To- morrow a Detach- ment from the four Troops of Horse and Horse Grenadier Guards will march for the same Place. A Writer in one of the Morning Papers ob- serves, that it is surprizing their Majesties, in Reign of ten Years, have never once honoured the Universities with a Visit; it is more surpriz- ing however, that, in such a Space, they have never been farther than Windsor; and that the King particularly, in his whole Life, has not been thirty Miles from the Capital. It is confidently asserted that the intended Visit of the Queen of Denmark to her native Coun- try, is not a Visit of Ceremony only, but that her Majesty will bring over some Persons in her Train, charged with a Commission of the last Importance to the general Tranquility of Europe. This Day both Houses of Parliament met, and were further prorogued to the Ist of October. A Paper, relative to national Grievances, and said to be written by Lord Chatham, has been transcribed no less than four Times in the City, in Consequence of so many Consultations with the Heads of Opposition, who want to make it particularly linking for a Royal Perusal. It is confidently said, that an Act to prevent the future Exportation of Horses from any Part of Great Britain, without first entering their Num- - bers at the Custom- House, and paying a high Duty, will take Place next Sessions of Parliament. Yesterday Morning, at the Bull Inn, Bishops- gate- Street, there was a numerous and respecta- ble Meeting of the Consumers of Oats, when they made a Collection amongst the Consumers of that Commodity, in the Neighbourhood, to de- fray the Expences of Application to Sessions to open the Port. The Spanish Admiral in the Mediterranean Kirkman and Rossiter, Mr. Sheriff Martin, & c. embarked in the Chatham and Trinity Yachts from Rochester, under a Discharge of Cannon, and were immediately under Sail with a very strong Gale. At the Nore the Chatham dropped Anchor, in order that his Lordship might land near Pricklewell on the Essex Coast. It was re- presented to his Lordship that going ashore, as the Waves were high, in an open Boat, would be dangerous. However his Lordship said he would do his Duty notwithstanding, and immediately took to the Boat, and Mr. Rossiter resolutely ac- companied him, with the necessary Officers. With great Difficulties they arrived on Shore within the Parish of Pricklewell. Mrs. Cramper hearing his Lordship was about to arrive there, politely sent down her Chariot, and then the whole Company proceeded to Crow- Stone, about three Miles off, where the same Ceremonies were gone through, and Toasts given, as near Upnor Castle, Money distributed to the Populace and Ringers, a great Quantity of Liquor at an ad- jacent Public- House. His Lordship and Mr. Rossiter partook of some Refreshments for a short Time at the Lady's House, but had not the Plea- sure of seeing her, on Account of her being much indisposed; then they took Boat, and re- em- barked on board the Chatham ; but on Account of the Tide's being almost spent, his Lordship, and Messrs. Rossiter and Kirkman, went in the Yacht's Boat for Gravesend, where they arrived at Nine, and were received with the same Ho- nours as on the Thursday before. His Lordship and Company spent the Evening, and lay there all Night. On Sunday Morning, they set off in three Post Chaises and four for their respective Country Seats. The Trinity Yacht sailed from Gravesend at Three on Sunday Morning, with with many of the City Officers, and anchored at Rotherhithe about Ten. The four Toasts, mentioned in the preceding Page, to have been given by the Mayor at the City's Stone, near Upnor Castle, were repeated after the grand Dinner was over, with the Addi- tion of the two following : " May the Citizens of London and Rochester never want Aldermen willing and active in Support of the People" — Then Mr. Calcraft begged Leave to give this : " May the Sheriffs elect of London and Middle- sex act with the same Spirit and Vigour as the present Sheriffs have done." A fine Band of Music, accompanied the whole Solemnity. When the City Barges were becalmed, the im- patient Citizens appeared much hurt at being so long detained— What do you complain of, says Mr. Wilkes, do you think you shall not live to see a Turn of the Tide in our Favour. ? At the next Court of Common Council Mr. Wilkes's Friends are to support a Motion, to al- low him out of the Chamber of London 15001. for the Expences of the Shrievalty; which, toge- ther with the Bounty of Al — n K tt, who is to store his Cellar with Wine, & c. gratis, it is thought, may be sufficient. The last Remonstrance of the City was penned by Alderman Wilkes. No Wonder then if his Majesty complained of the reprehensive Terms, in which it was conceived. Mr. Wilkes had Reason to drive the Nail to the Head, and the Wound was exasperated by the Hand which gave it. Mr. Wilkes we hear as received a very polite Invitation from Lord T e to spend a few There are Letters by the Suffolk, Captain Jer- mine, which arrived in the Downs last Saturday from Jamaica, which say, that they have lately received Advice there of another severe Shock of an Earthquake at St. Domingo, which lasted two Minutes and a Half, and threw down about ten of the loftiest Houses, the Inhabitants of which were buried in the Ruins.

Early Intelligence from our Correspondents in London, ( dated Wednesday, July 24 ) which cannot appear in any other Country Paper sooner than Saturday, nor even in any of the London Papers before those brought by the Mail on Friday. YESTERDAY the Lord Mayor declared that he would not call a Common Hall till next Michaelmas Day, when he would lay before the Livery his Majesty's Answer to the City Address, Remonstrance, & c. And at the same Time a Committee of the Bill of Rights, will lay before them their Proceedings for these four Months past to that Time, and desire their Opinion what Steps are now proper to be taken in order to re- store the Citizens of London, and all the People of England, to their antient Rights and Pri- vileges, which have of late been so infringed on. We are confidently assured, that Yesterday Lord N. waited on his Majesty at St. James's, desiring Leave to resign. A Great Personage said, at the last Levee at St. James's, that he would kindle a brighter Blaze To- morrow at Windsor, than has been seen in it since the Days of Old Edward the Third. The Dinner, we hear, at the Installation, is ordered to be sufficient for seven or eight hun- dred People. Three French Noblemen arrived on Monday in St. James's Street, from Versailles, in order to be present at the Installation. Lord Hertford, we hear, was so polite as to send Tickets to all the Foreigners of Distinction at the West End of the Town, in his Majesty's Name. Days next Month at his Seat at Stowe in Buck- inghamshire. Some Gentlemen, who affect to be well in- formed, have lately asserted that the Reality of Mr. Wilkes's Patriotism will be quickly put to the Test; and that it is seriously the Opinion of Government to try, by the Offer of a Place, to destroy him in the Affection of the People. We are assured, that the Rev. Dr. Wilson has declared, in public Company, that if the Livery of London should think him worthy of their Choice to succeed Mr. Wilkes next Year, as one of the Sheriffs for London and Middlesex, he would willingly serve that Office. We hear Mr. Foote has been refused Leave by the Lord Chamberlain to exhibit a Representa- tion of the ensuing Installation at his Theatre in the Haymarket. We are assured that Mr. Valentine Morris, who contrary to general Opinion, has lost the Election for Monmouthshire, by a great Majority on the Side of his Antagonist, has expended six Thou- sand Pounds in the course of his Canvass; which, together with a very amiable Character, readily accounts for his high Estimation with the Popu- lace of the County. His Excellency Count Malzhan has, we hear, frequent Interviews with our Ministry on the Affairs of the North ; from whence it is conjec- tured that the Prussian Eagle Means to take a new Flight into the political Atmosphere; for the Pur- pose of examining whether the present Commo- tions between the Czarina and the Porte may not be made beneficial to the House of Brandenburg. Letters from Vienna of the 22d of May advise, that the Queen of Hungary is marching a great Body of Infantry and Cavalry into Poland ; but whether to act in Conjunction with the Russians, or otherwise, has not yet transpired. So expensive is the Military Establishment of the East- India Company in Asia, that above 1200000l. is annually laid out in the mere Cir- cumstance of Defence, even when there is no Enemy to be dreaded, which must easily account for the large Fortunes amassed by the Com- manders of Regiments. A Ship is lately arrived from the Missisippi with a Cargo of Furs, amounting to near 30000l. She is the first English Vessel that ever came from that Part of the Country. Several Boards of Trade have lately been held, in which the Propriety of establishing a Government there, has, we hear, been absolutely determined upon by the Com- missioners. The British Dominions on the Borders of the Missisipi produce the finest Shipping Timber in the Universe; and in such Plenty, that the Spaniards WORCESTER, Thursday, July 25.

At our Market, last Saturday, upwards of 350 Pockets of Hops were sold ; the general Prices from 5 1. 10 s. to 7 1. per Hundred ; some few at 7 1. 7 s. On Thursday last John Child, for the Murder and Robbery of Mr. Bell, near Kidderminster. was executed at our County Gallows, amidst a vail Concourse of People ; and the next Morn- ing his Body was taken to our Infirmary for Dis- section. He was very penitent and devout, acknowledged the Crime for which he suffered, . and desired the Spectators to take Warning by his untimely End. The Night before his Exe- cution he wrote a Letter to Mr. Sanders, of Graf- ton Lodge, near Bromsgrove, in which he parti- cularized several Robberies he had been con- cerned in. We are assured, that the famous Mr. Bourne, in his great Modesty, and to shew a particular Re- spect for his old Acquaintance, John Child, at- tended the Execution, and very conspicuously stationed himself near the Gallows. Early last Thursday Morning, a Fellow at- tempted to break in at the back Window of the House of Mr. Baker, a Baker, in Foregate- street, but the Noise he made awaking Mr. Baker, he got up, fetched his Gun, and looking out of the Window, saw the Fellow in the Yard, and called to him, but he making no Answer, Mr. Baker declared he would shoot him if he did not speak ; but just as he was going to sire, recollected that the Gun was not primed, and therefore went back for some Powder; in the mean Time the Fellow was endeavouring to make off, and had nearly got over a spiked Door, when Mr. Baker called again to him, but receiving no Answer, fired at him ; however he escaped, but must have been wounded, either by the Spikes of the Door, or the Shot from the Gun, a great deal of Blood being observed in the Morning near the Door, & c. On Tuesday last Richard Pitway, a poor Man Seventy Years of Age, was found drowned in the ing he had for some Time been disordered Senfes ; and it is remarkable, that, on that Twelvemonth, he very nearly dispatched self by cutting his Throat. On Tuesday last, as the Nephew of Mr. Cla a Farmer of Castle Polverbatch, near Bisi Castle, Shropshire, was returning from the Kilns, with his Uncle's Team, he had the fortune to slip in a Rut; the Waggon being went over him before he had Time to re himself, and he was killed on the Spot. On Thursday Evening last the following, shocking and barbarous Murder was comm near Lidney, in Gloucestershire: — Miss Jones, youngest Daughter of William Jones,: of Nass, and Miss Gough, a young Lac Monmouth, who was upon a Visit at Nass, a Walk after Tea to Lidney, which is about Miles distant, but were detained there Rain till near Ten o'Clock, at which Time set out on their Retnrn for Nass, without an tendant. The Family, surprized the Ladie not return, sent a Servant with a Lantho meet them, who sound Miss Jones lying across the Path in the Meadow, with the Part of her Skull beat to Pieces, and Miss G in a Ditch near the same Place, most shocks bruised. It is impossible to describe the Di- tion into which the Family was thrown, whole Country being soon alarmed, every was summoned to go in Pursuit of the Mur William Morgan, a young Man of Lidn Sawyer by Trade, was the only Person a He was in Bed, when one of his Neigh called him up and told him what had passed, soon as he came down, some Blood being served upon the Knee of his Breeches h directly charged with the Fact, which he w Hesitation confessed. On Saturday Eveni was sent to Gloucester Gaol, and gives t count of the horrid Deed : - He fays, he ha playing at Fives on Thursday Evening, an lost all his Money ; but had engaged to p Six pence the next Night. Whilst he was thi how to get the Money he had engaged for, these two young Ladies passed him, came into his Mind that he might easi them of their Money, as they went Hom being nearly dark, he accordingly followed and passing by them, Miss Jones said, Good to you, Will. Finding that he was known, termined to murder them, and taking a Circuit in the Meadow, came behind then with a Stake struck Miss Jones upon the which brought her to the Ground, he the her another Blow, and left her dead on the -- Miss Gough who had run a few Yar followed, and struck in the same Manner, screamed out, upon which he repeated his ' till she was to all Appearance lifeless. poses in struggling she had fallen into the Di he did not throw her there. He then down and took off Miss Jones's Pockets, her Watch, and in kneeling down his B were stained with the Blood. Just as he had off the Pockets, he saw the Servant com with a Lanthorn and ran off. He says, passed through Lidney Church- yard, he terrible Noise in the Church, which thre into such a Panic, that if a Pool of Wa been near he should have drowned himself ever he continued on his Way Home, an to Bed. When he was first apprehende questioned, whether any other was concern him, the Villain charged an innocent his Accomplice, but afterwards recanted appears to have been an ignorant, idle, d Fellow;— says, he did not intend doing dies any Injury, if Miss Jones had not di she knew him. — Miss Gough, upon be ried to a House, shewed some Signs of Lif by the Means of Mr. Jones, of Newnha Mr. Hawker, of Chepstow, the Surgeon were called in, she revived so far as to spe incoherent Words; and by Advice just ri we are informed she is now in a fair Recovery.

THE Gentlemen who have set 011 Foot the pre- sent Undertaking will rely on the Candour of a dis- cerning indulgent People; not doubting that the Means they have employed to procure a Fund of the most useful Knowledge, and of the most varie- gated, rational Entertainment for Persons of both Sexes, and of every Rank in Life, will entitle them to a Portion of the public Favour, and that they shall be able to make this Performance agreeable to the literal Sense of its Title, Every Man's Magazine. They mean to range through the vast Regions of Science, to root up the noxious Weeds carefully to cull the salutary Simples, as well as the rare Flowers of exalted Genius, and so judiciously to assort and dispose them, that neither the Eye, the Ear, nor the Judgment may be wearied, or fatigued with disgusting Sameness. That Part of Education which tends to the Accomplishment of the real Gen- tleman, and paves the Way to Honour and Prospe- rity, shall be particularly attended to. Sprightly Essays, and familiar Anecdotes, founded 011 enter- taining recentOccurrences, will be dispersed through- out the Work. A critical Analysis will be given of the State of Literature in Italy, France, and Eng- land, with copious Extracts from all Works of dis- tinguished Merit. And, that no Doubt may re- main of the superior Excellence of our Materials, we have to add, that the celebrated Dr. ARNE has engaged to provide for the Entertainment of the Lovers of Music, a new Song for every Number; and great Care will be taken that the Words shall do Honour to the Compositions of that great Master. The Monthly Register of Polities, and of familiar domestic Events, ¡ hall be stated with that Concise- ness and Precision which may render it entertaining at the End of the Month, even to those who have cursorily perused the Daily Papers. In sine, the Proprietors, in order to insure Success in this enter- taining Article, have engaged, at a great Expence, the most capital Engravers, and will give three ele- gant Copper plates with every Number. The lite- ary Aid of the Patrons of useful Undertakings is earnestly requested. *** As we flatter ourselves we shall deserve the Approbation of the Public, we earnestly intreat them to peruse the First Number, which may be re- turned, if not approved. The following approved Medicines are sold at Berrow's Printing- Office in Worcester. Another recent Instance of a most extraordinary Cure effected by the Use of VELNOS' Vegetable SYRUP. AS the following Cafe is the most obstinate and invete- rate that can be conceived, and the Truth of it fied by Hundreds, as well the respectable Character hereafter mentioned, ' tis hoped it will be deemed a most convincing Proof of the superior Efficacy of a Medicine composed solely from Vegetables, without a single Particle of Mercury, or spirituous Ingredients. JAMES COLE, late a Farmer at Caldient, near Cam- bridge, had a Venereal Complaint of near ten Years stand- ing, complicated with an inveterate Scurvy, for which he had been thrice salivated without Effect ; besides innumera- ble dreadful Symptoms, which cannot with Delicacy be de- scribed ; the lower Part of the Back was full or Ul- cers, communicating with each other, grown with a Caries overspreading the Os Sacrum. The Nature of his Disease had bent him almost double ; and he now kept his Bed near twelve Months, when the Rev. Mr. Murhall, Senior Fellow of Christ College, Cambridge, and Minister of Caldicot, applied to Dr. Burrows, to know if the VE- GETABLE SYRUP could afford Relief to this unhappy Sufferer, on whom every other Expedient had been tiled in vain ; by the sole Use of which he was able to rise and dress himself in a Fortnight's Time, at the End of five Weeks to walk round the Village, and he i; now perfectly cured, to the Astonishment of the whole Neighbourhood. The Gentleman to whose Humanity he owes his Line, in Justice to the Doctor's Medicine, will chearfully satisfy any candid Enquirer of the Truth of the above Case. This Medicine, which daily Experience proves to be a Specific in all Venereal and Scorbutic Cafes, is to be had in Bottle, at I0s. 6d. each, Dr. BURHOWS'S House, opposite the Prince of Orange" s Coffee House, in the Hay Market, Lon- don ; sold also by Fletcher and Hudson, in Cambridge ( who are appointed sole Agents for vending this Medicine in the Coun- try); Mr. Raikes, Gloucester ; Mr. Pugh, Hereford; Messrs.

MAREDANT'S DROPS. To Mr. Norton, Surgeon, Golden- Square. SIR, April 28, 1771. I have happily experienced the Efficacy of your ( Maredant's Drops, in a very painful Humour and Disorder which I laboured under near 20 Years, in both my Legs, accompanied with a Vio- lent Inflammation and profuse Discharge, the Sharpness of whit. flea's of the Skin, and prevented my getting ( but at very sharp Intervals) either Sleep or Rest. Aster trying Stoops of Herbs Diet Drinks, and innumerable Medicines, in vain, almost tired out with Pain and Grief, I was recommended to male Trial of your Drops ; which I took, and have the Pleasure to inform you that they have effectually removed the Complaint, so as to leave, no Appearance of the Disorder. Please to accept my Thanks for the same, and my sincere Wishes that this Testimony of the Effi- cacy of your invaluable Drops may be so publicly known, as the others, labouring under the like Affliction, may find the same Relief. l am, with great Respect, your humble Servant, ESTHER WRIGHT, At Mr, Cox's, Shoe Lane, Fleet- Street Any Person still doubtful of 1 he Efficacy of this Medicine may ( by applying to Mr. NORTON. Surgeon, the West Si of Golden- square, near Piccadilly, London, the only Author and Proprietor, where these Drops are sold in Bottles of Shillings each) be fully convinced of their good Effect, being referred to many People of Credit, who have be cured of the Leprosy, Scurvy, Ulcers, the Evil, Fistula Piles, long continued Inflammations of the Eyes, and even other Disorder arising from a Foulness in the Blood. That may be taken in any Season, without the least Inconvenience or Hindrance of Business. They also perfect Digestion, amazingly create an Appetite.
