IT is reported that the courts of France and Spain have disavowed in the strongest manner, any hostile intentions towards Great Britain, but have declared they cannot behold without jealousy our great naval preparations. The French King has Threatened to recall his Minister and Consuls from every place in the Por- tugueze dominions, if some infringements, of which his subjects complain, are not immediately removed. It is said that a Great Personage has signified his disapprobation of the intention of the eccleliastical petitioners. « Jt is reported that Lord Camden has had some recent offers made him, and that his Lordship has not yet returned any absolute answer. The Earl ofC — m has positively declared that he will take no part in any administration that shall be formed by the M s of R m. The friends of the superiority of this nation over its conquests and colonies affirm, that an adt will pass describing the limits which the assemblies of of such ought to go. A certain young nobleman, just come of age, was touched the other morning, at a Chocolate- house near Pall- mail, for 70001, at piquet. LONDON, Dec. 11. We hear that the dispute which lately happened between an english floop and a Portuguese frigate the Brazils; entirely accommodated to the satisfaction of both Courts. By a vessel from Antigua there is advice, that the town of La Vega, the capital of the island of Hispaniola, was totally swallowed up by an earth- quake the 21st of September. We hear that orders are given for a survey to be made of all the ports and harbours belonging to the British colonies in America. No less than three expresses were received yester- day from the Earl of Grantham at Madrid. Earl Temple was yesterday at the levee and council, and after the business was over, had a long private conference with his Majesty. Yesterday the Right Hon. the Earl of Bute had the honour of a conference with his Majesty, after the breaking up of the levee at St James's. Several Cabinet Councils have been held on ac- count of the Resolutions of the House of Commons in Ireland; and, we are told, the Ministry are at a stand how to proceed. The Rev. Mr S— t— ns, who married the Duke of C— ra—— d on the 2d of October last, had a sa- lary of 100l. per ann. settled on him immediately " after the ceremony. We are informed that yesterday, at a general meeting of the Clergy and other Gentlemen united to obtain relief from subscription to the 39 articles, & c. after fome previous business, a Committee was proposed, and unanimously chosen, to consider of the proper method of carrying the Petition into the House, and that a fourth general meeting was fixed for the 23d. of January next. Last night Lottery Tickets sold at some of the Offices from ]. to 36I. Monday's and Tuesday's Posts. ST JAMES'S, Dec. 11. THIS day was received from Capt. Stott, of his Majesty's Ship Juno, who arrived at Plymouth the 9th inst. in 70 days from Port Egmont, the following account of the execution of his commission to receive the possession of Falklands Island, in his Majesty's name. On the evening of the 13th of September last, Capt. Stott arrived at Port Egmont, with his Majesty's frigate Juno, the Hound sloop, and Florida storeship, under his com- mand. The next morning, seeing Spanish colours flying, and troops on shore at the settlement for- merly held by the English, he sent a Lieutenant to know if any officer was there on behalf of his Catholic Majesty, empowered to make restitution of possession to him, agreeable to the orders of his court for that purpose, duplicates of which he had to deliver to such officer. He was answered, That Don Francisco de Orduna, a Lieutenant of the Royal Artillery of Spain, was furnished with full powers, and ready to effect the restitution. Don Francisco soon after came on board the Juno; when Capt. Stott delivered to him his Catholic Majesty's orders. They then examined, together, into the situation of the settlement and stores ; adjusted the forms of the restitution and reception of the pos- session ; instruments for which Were settled, and re- ciprocally delivered. On Monday, the 16th of September, Capt. Stott landed, followed by a par- ty of Marines, and was received by the Spanish officer, who formally restored him Falkland's Island, Port Egmont, its fort, and other dependencies, giving him the same possession as his Majesty had before the 10th of June 1770: On which he caused his Majesty's colours to be hoisted, and took pos- session accordingly. The next day Don Francisco, with all the troops and subjects of the King of Spain, departed in a schooner which they had with them. ( Gazette.) Arrived the Mails from Holland and Flanders. Riga, Nov. 3 The contagious distemper still continues to make great ravages in the government of Moscow, and to extend to the neighbouring pro- vinces. It has broke out in the districts of Tweer, Jaroslaw, Kiovia, and the Ukrane. ' LONDON, Dec. 13. From Constantinople we hear, that feveral Rus- sian prisoners have been led in triumph, through . the principal streets, in order to lessen the idea en- tertained of the successes of the Russian army. , His Majesty of Prussia is so capital a politician, that he never fails to declare, that ' his sole motive for keeping up an immense army, and marching his troops into different parts of Europe, is the public welfare alone, thereby preserving his lov- ing subjects and neighbours from that dreadful ca- lamity the plague, and levying money from those who can best afford it, for the support of his Im- perial designs. You must, says he, purchase my friendship and alliance, or you know what follows. They write from Toulon, that the naval com- mander there had just received an order from his court, to equip a number of men of war and fri- gates for sea, with the utmost expedition. , Advices from Paris say, a letter, replete with polite raillery, and the most poignant satire, hath been sent from a celebrated Marchioness to the King, and that his Majesty hath commanded her personal attendance. Wednesday five sail of ships arrived in the river, laden with corn from Holland, and several more are daily expected. This morning a courier with letters of impor- tance arrived at St James's from Madrid. Last night the Earl of Bute, Jeremiah Dyson, Sir Gilbert Elliot, and another gentleman were in conference with his Majesty above two hours. The Duke of C arrived in town on Wednes- day night incog, and yesterday morning had an au- dience of the Princess Dowager, whose pardon he is said to have procured. It is reported that when a certain Lady went to pay her respects to the D s of C at Windsor Lodge, the, agreeably to the former intimacy that subsisted between them, rushed forward to embrace her with all the ardour of affection; when, instead of meeting with that return which friendship or good breeding demanded, the D. of C. sat in her chair of state with great dignity, and held out her hand to be kissed, after the royal manner, as an in- stance of her great humility. Nothing can be more pertinent to the D. of C.' s marriage, than the learned Selden's observation on marriages in general: " Of all the actions of a man's life; his marriage does least concern other people ; yet of all actions of our life, ' tis most med- dled with by other people.' The public is greatly astonished to find that this week has passed, without any fresh detection of Crim. Con. or a new divorce being talked of. Monday a shoe- black and his wife quarrelled, when the woman, with a deal of humour, said, " she could not put up any longer with his ill u- sage, and should sue for a divorce." LONDON, Dec. 14. Letters from Leghorn say, the Duke of Glouces- ter intends to make but a short stay at Pisa, and will spend the remainder of the winter at Florence. Six men of war, with land forces, sailed from Cadiz for the Musquito shore the 27th ult. The Spanish Embassador has at length declared, that his court is willing to conciliate matters with Great Britain— by the mediation of France. A sloop of war is left at Port Egmont. The Carysfort frigate, which was to sail from Admiral Rodney, on the 8th of October, with some important dispatches, is hourly expected. A letter from the Hague says, the states had re- solved to send a considerable reinforcement of ships and soldiers to their East India settlements. The Duke of Cumberland is now in town. It is said that his Royal Highness sent a letter yesterday to a great and amiable Lady, and received a very gracious answer; so that it is thought all differences will be soon adjusted. Wednesday the Princess Dowager of Wales went to the house in Pall Mail, opposite to the Cocoa- tree, which is taken for the Prince and Princess of Brunswick, viewed every part of it, and seemed as well as she had been these ten years. The King and Queen of Denmark are not expec- ted- on a visit to this kingdom, as has been said. his Grace the Duke of Northumberland was yes- terday at the levee at St James's, and after it broke up had a conference with his Majesty. It is said that Lord George Germaine has had fre- quent conferences with his Majesty. lately. Summonses were sent this morning to the Lord President Earl Gower, Lord North, the Earls of Sandwich and Hertford the Secretaries of State, &. c. to attend at a Council on Monday. The above Council is said to be summoned in consequence of some very interesting advices that arrived last night from Paris. We hear Sir Gilbert Elliot is shortly to be crea- ted a Peer, by the title of Lord Greenwich. The account of a Coalition of Parties being a- gain'on the Carpet, is without foundation. A correspondent says, there will soon be an al- teration in the Board of Ad y, on account of a late quarrel between two of the L— ds. The Irish Parliament have no positive right to strike off such pensions as are granted by the King's letter, on the revenues of that nation; but they have a power nearly equal, which is to raise no more money than they think proper; and this they will certainly exercise on the present occasion, to the great mortification of government. The little junto, and doers of all public business, have resolved to support Lord Townshend in Ire- land, against the Houfe of Commons there. It is confidently said the marriages of two noble personages will be referred to the consideration of Parliament. Wednesday, Capt. Fortescue, of the Osterley ; Capt. Todd, of the Earl of Lincoln; Capt. Carr, of the Greenwich ; and Capt. Johnson of the Gran- by, took leave of the Court of Directors. Three Supervisors will certainly be sent by the Company to India, and the Gentlemen intended are Mr Sullivan, Mr Purling, and Mr Rumbold. Mr Dunn claims to be the first discoverer of seas in the moon, and observes. that, altho' some Astronomers have conjectured it, others as eminent have denied it to the present time. He gives the following as an ocular demonstration thereof.. From the time of the change of the moon till the time of full moon and from the time of full moon till the time of the change of the moon, as far as the brown parts extend on the illumi- nated part of the Moon, they appear of the same colour, and terminate in the arch of a cir- cle, on the Moon's surface, which arch is accu- rately between the illuminated and unilluminated part: that those brown parts are never visible be- yond that line, nor invisible short of it; and there- fore, from the position of that line, as seen from the earth, those brown parts are in the surface of the Moon's body, and as nothing but a fluid can so exactly conform to that surface, therefore the brown parts of the Moon are seas. Lord Baltimore's Will came over last Monday from Italy, his Lordship has appointed Hugh Ha- mersley, Robert Eden, Robert Morris, of Lincoln's Inn, Barrister, and Peter Provost, Esqrs. trustees and executors, with an annuity to each of 1ool, for life, and 15001. to be divided among them; and has bequeathed to Sophia Hales and Elizabeth Hales, infants, daughters of Elizabeth Dawson, spinster, 10001. each, and 10001. to their mother; to Charlotte Hope, daughter of Elizabeth Hope, 2000I. to his sisters, Caroline Eden, and Louisa Browning, 10,0001. each ; to Henry Harford, son of Hester Rhelan, of the age of 14, his Province of Maryland, and all his real and personal estates at the age of 21 ; and, in case of his death before 21, to his sister, Frances Mary Harford, and her heirs; and he also gave to she said Frances Mary Harford, 30,0001. and to the said Hester Rhelan, an annuity of 2001. a- year for life. There are a great number of bad 36s. pieces and moidores now circulating ; they appear very good, are pale coloured, and cannot be easily distinguish- ed from the real ones, but by scraping the edge a little, when the base metal will appear of a white hue. The Lord Mayor and Aldermen intend to put into execution, the stat. 22d and 23d Charles II. cap. 19. That no Butcher in London or Westmin- er, or within ten miles thereof, shall buy fat cattle to sell them again, alive or dead, to another But- cher, on the forfeiture of the value of such cattle. We are informed that the mildness of the season has occasioned more wheat to be sown than was ever remembered at this period. NORTHUMBERLAND. At the General Quarter Sessions of the Peace of our sovereign Lord the King, held at Alnwick, in and for the said County, on Wednesday the 9th day of October, in the eleventh year of the reign of our sovereign Lord George the Third, King of Great Britain, and so forth, before Gawen Aynsley, George Delaval, William Carr, Robert Fenwick, Gabriel Selby, Alexander Col- lingwood, and John Widdrington, Esquires, and others, his Majesty's Justices of the Peace, assign- ed to keep the Peace in the said County. THIS COURT taking into serious consideration the pernicious consequences of the excessive increase of petty Horse Races of late years within this county, in open violation of the known laws of this kingdom, and tending directly to corrupt the morals of the peOple, already too much de- praved, and to habituate them to a course of idle- ness and debauchery, by which the community is not only deprived of the benefit of the work of many hundred able and useful hands ( and frequent ly at those seasons of the year when it is most wanted) but also becomes burthened with the maintenance of the wives and children of such idle persons thus reduced to poverty and distress: This Court being sensible that drunkenness, gambling, prophane cursing and swearing, quarrelling, and fighting, and other breaches of the peace and good behaviour never fail to attend those unlawful as- semblies; and that of all the various kinds of gam ing, horse races are the most injurious to society, as they are the means of collecting together the greatest number of the lower classes of the people, and robbing the public of their labour. Therefore, to remedy thefe inconveniences, and to Restrain Horse Races in this county, within the limits of the law, the Magistrates, ever zealous to promote the general welfare of the county, and to pre- serve peace and good order within the same, as far as by law they may; and being persuaded, that this desirable end cannot by any method be so ef- fectually obtained as by discouraging and punishing all manner of vice, prophaneness, and immorality, the main sources from which most disorders and irregularities proceed, have determined to prose- cute at their own expence, all persons who shall hereafter, in this county offend against the act of parliament made in the 13 Geo. 2. entitled, An Act to restrain and prevent the excessive increase of horse races ; and that this order may be the more generally and punctually carried into execu- tion, all high and petty Constables, and other peace officers within the county are hereby strictly charged, as they will answer the contrary at their peril, to give immediate notice to the nearest Jus- tice of the Peace, or to the Clerk of the Peace, or his Deputy, if any person or persons within their respective divisions shall presume to offend herein, by running any horse, mare, or gelding, for any prize or sum of money under the real and intrin- sick value of FIFTY POUNDS sterling, in order that such offender or offenders may be proceeded against according to law, for the recovery of the penalty inflicted by the said statute for such offence: An extract from which statute is inserted below. By Order, J. FRENCH, Deputy Clerk of the Peace. by 13 Geo. 1, c. 19. It is enacted that n0 plate, prize, sum of money, or other things, shall be run for by any horse, mare, or gelding, or advertised, published, or proclaimed to be run for by any horse, mare, or gelding, unless such plate, prize, or sum of money shall be of a full, real, and in- trinsick value of FIFTY POUNDS ; and in case any person shall enter, start, or run any horse, mare, or gelding, contrary to this act, he shall forfeit Two HUNDRED POUNDS; or shall make, print, publish, or proclaim any advertisement thereto, shall forfeit ONE HUNDRED POUNDS.

Letters from Madrass and Bombay give an ac- count of several British vessls. being seized in the Gulph of Bassora, by the Persians. Advices from Cadiz say, that great quantities of ammunition of war continue to arrive there from foreign countries, destined for the Spanish Domi- nions in South America. , The last hand is just put to an important treaty which has' for some time been negociating between the courts of france, Spain, Lisbon, and Stockholm. By recent advices from France we are assured that the French fleet, ordered to be equipped at Brest, is ready for sea, and will sail in a few days for the Mediterranean. There are considerable orders come over in the London, Capt. Calef, which arrived last Sunday at Dover, from Boston, to the Merchants of this city, for large quantities of silks of the newest patterns. The letters from thence say, that trade begins a- gain to flourish there, and that peace and harmony reign throughout the whole province. Orders were on Saturday evening sent to his Majesty's dock- yards for fitting out with all expe- dition, one first rate, two second rates, and some other ships of the line; which, when ready for sea, are to sail for Jamaica to reinforce Adm. Rodney. By the Master of a vessel from Jamaica, we have advice, that Admiral Rodney's squadron, con- sisting of six sale of the line, and two frigates, which had been on a cruize, returned safe to Port Royal harbour the 25th of October.— The same advices add, that two frigates, and a' sloop are ap- pointed by the same Commander to reconnoitre the harbours at Havanna, St Jago and Martinico, ' and. to bring the most early accounts of any material transactions in those parts. A draught of twenty men from every regiment in England, is to be made to ' reinforce the garri- sons abroad, and, four new regiments are to be rai- sed here to replace them. Saturday her Royal Highness the Princess of Brunswick, arrived at Carltoni- house from Bruns- wick, in perfect health. His serene Highness is expected very soon. And yesterday her Highness paid a visit to their Majesties at the Queen's palace. The D— of C - d is so far from - thinking him- self hardly treated by a Great Personagc, that he expressed himself in the following terms, to a friend who was talking to him on the subject:— " I never entertained a thought of gaining my brother's approbation to an act that did not pro- mise an addition to his dignity: the . furthest extent of my imaginations Were limited within the bounties of that reclusion, which characterizes a private country gentleman; unbiased in any affairs, but these which his own family necessarily demands. Let them strip me of every honour and title, so they leave me that which I esteem the greatest, they the the least—. the greatest blessing the most potent monarch or the poorest slave can enjoy— An angel's representative on earth, a virtuous, beau- tiful, good, and affable woman ! The thoughts of exhibiting impeachments a- gainst certain distinguished Personages are said to be given over, but a different mode will be adopt- ed to keep up the opposition. This morning early one of the messengers set off with dispatches for the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. Stockholm, Nov. 16. The resolation of the States regarding the free importation, of grain stands at present limited to the latter end of March; but as the general opinion seems to be; that this term is too short to be of any service, it is not unlikely that it may be extended to the end of . May, as has been proposed in the order of Clergy. Copenhagen, Dec. 3. By a late order, the im- portation of English salt into Denmark has been again permitted.

Wilna, Nov. 15. We learn from Warsaw, that several Dominicans had been privy to the plot to seize or assassinate the King, of Poland, some of whom are said to be taken. LONDON, Dec. 17. According to the last advices from Constantino- ple, a discovery had lately been made of an im- mense treasure in one of the vaults of the Seraglio, the value of many millions sterling, which had been buried underground some hundred years ago, by one of their Emperors, during an insurrection. The troops belonging to his Prussian Majesty, which are now assembled in Polish Prussia, amount to 20,000 men, infantry as well as cavalry, besides feveral detachments of light troops, who have cross- ed the Wartha, in order to procure horses in Po- land to remount the cavalry. They write from Vienna, that the late rumours of a rupture with one of the northern States, have again subsided, and a stop put to the further pro- gress of the levies of troops and forage. Orders were sent yesterday from the Admiralty Office, for three men of war to sail immediately for the Mediterranean, their particular destination is not yet known. A Messenger was sent this morning with expres- ses to the Duke of Gloucester at Rome. Our amiable Queen has offered her good offices, jointly with the P- ss Amelia, to reconcile a Great personage to his newly married brother, and as they have brought over the P.

A correspondent informs us he has recommended . to the publishers of a London paper, a Scheme for the relief of the poor distress'd sufferers, by the late inundations in the rivers Tyne, Wear and Tees, which he hopes will meet with the approbation of. our readers. The plan recommended is for every adventurer in the present Lottery, who has, or shall gain a prize, to bestow a part of such prize for the laudable purpose above- mentioned, in proportion to the value of it: ( viz) every » ol. to contribute zs. If every person who obtains a prize, would come into this Scheme and Contribute accordingly, he assures us it would raise upwards of four thousand, four hundred pounds; a considerable relief Without affecting any man's fortune, and such as one would imagine every person would wish to have in his power let some generous spirit Shew the way, by making public in some weekly paper, that he has contributed a share of his prize, agreeable to the above plan, and there is no doubt but he will find great numbers to follow him. Our corres- pondent further recommends to have the said con- tributions lodged in fome principal Banker's hands in London, a Newcastle, and in the hands of some Merchant or tradesman, in the Cities and princi- pal Towns through the Kingdom, most convenient to the persons that may obtain any of the said prizes. BENEVOLUS. This is to inform the public, that no temporary bridge is finished, or scarcelv yet begun, at Greata Bridge, notwithstanding the repeated advertise- ments to, the contrary in this paper. Therefore the only road now for travellers westward is to turn off Gatherly Moor, and go through Forcet, over Winston Bridge. Yesterday se'nnight a dispensation passed the seal to enable the Rev. Ambrose Eyre, M. A. Chaplain to the Bishop of Carlisle, to hold the Rectory of Out- well, in Norfolk, together with the Rectory of Bat- ley, in Herts, worth together 360! per annum. The Magistrates. will go to St Andrew's Church the Sunday after Christmas- day, on account of the collection for the poor of that parish ' We hear from Alnwick, that a few days ago Mr Mackorkell, Dancing Master there, from, Edin- burgh, give a ball to his Scholars, He was h0- noured with a great Company of Ladies and Gen- tlemen, from town and country. The ball was opened by two children, each of them not ex- ceeding seven years of age; the Minuets and high Dances lasted from six o'clock in the evening till eleven at night, likewise a Cotilion by of them; all which gained the Master great, ho- nour, and the Scholars, got great applaUse. At a meeting this week, the Grocers and Tallow Chandlers in Gateshead, determined to give no . Christmas Candles,' . . Notwithstanding the absolute contradiction, in- serted in our last, to the paragraph in the Chro- nicle and Journal of the decision of the cause about the living of Chester- le- street, in favour of Mr Milbanke, many people are so credulous as yet to believe it is decided, we, therefore, from absolute authority, again declare, that the cause is so far from being decided in favour of Mr. Milbanke, that if Is recommenced IN the King's Bench. We are told, that last week a woman in this town was seized with a fit, and being pUt to bed was thought soon after to expire. A coffin was got, and though the bed was warm, and the body pliable, it. was put in, and conveyed to the mansions of the dead. It is really shocking that husbands, wives, or children, should be so precipitate in re- moving from sight what once ought to have been so dear, and was so near to them. Thursday, Mr Archer, Brush- maker here, on his return from Alnwick, fell off his horse, near Stannington, where he remained speechless. for some time, and is in a dangerous way. , Yesterday, William Craig, a Journeyman Joiner, coming to this town to work, from Oakwell- gate, Gateshead, had the misfortune to fall down the bank leading from Gateshead church to the end of Hillgate, by which he broke three ribs of his side, and is otherwise much bruized, so that his life is despaired of: He has a wife and five small children, two of whom ( are twins) she is now lying- in of. Andrew Wilson, Margaret Hart, Margaret Hen- dry, and Susan Huntley, are taken up, on suspici- on of larcenies, both in Northumberland and this town; but are only, as yet, detained for exami- nation. They are old offenders. Margaret Les- lie is committed to be tried at the next sessions, for picking a person's pocket in the Pullen- market. We hear from Rothbury, that one Edward Hope, a bachelor, having acquired a considerable fortune, retired from business, and betook himself to a private course of life, at a village called Holy- stone, nigh, that place, where he kept only one servant- girl, who, last week in the absence of her master, went an errand to a neighbours house, and locked the door, but forgot the key therein; she returned in a few minutes, when to. her great surprize, she found the lock tore off a large chest alarming her master, he instantly missed a small trunk which contained a number of writings of great importance, besides upwards of 300I.— This may serve as a caution to servants and others, not to leave the key behind them. Tuesday se'nnight was. married at Warkwork, Mr Edmond Scott; of Shortridge, aged 8o to Mrs Ann Embleton, a widow Lady, Upwards of 60. Notwithstanding the Bridegroom's advanced age, he went through the business of the day with all the spirit imaginable: . Sunday was married at All Saint's, Mr Bateman, one of the Clerks of the Newcastle Bank, to Miss Wright, of St Nicholas's Church- yard, an amiable, and accomplished young lady. , Two Government cutters are stationed along the North coast, from Berwick to Beachy Head, to cruise to intercept the smugglers. ' , The Concord, Ramage, from Petersburgh, was driven from her anchors in YarmOuth Roads on the 8th instant in the night, on Barber Sands, a little north of the town: the crew are saved, but it is feared that the ship will not stand long; there is some hope of saving the greatest part of the cargo. The Jenny, Slight, from Petersburgh to Hull, is lost in the Baltick, and all the crew perished. The Charles Town, Morrison, and Nelly, Lind- say, are both lost in the Baltick. Wednesday se'nnight, the Charles and Jane, Nixon, and the Jenny, Heath, both of this port, were, in a hard gale of wind, drove on the Salt Scars, near the Tees, and lost; the crews saved. The Nancy, Elliot, from Virginia to White- haven, struck on some rocks off the mouth of Bullen's Bay, and went to pieces. Seven of the people were drowned: 8oo barrels of tar are saved.

" Last Saturday and Sunday there was here the most blowing weather I ever remember; large trees were torn up by the roots, barns were blown down, dwelling- houses unroofed, and some cot- tages laid flat; but I hear of no lives being lost. The sea ran so high, that a great part of our low grounds were laid under water, and many head of cattle drowned ; but the seas along our coast pre- sented to our view a most melancholy scene, the wrecks of ships and dead bodies being, every tide thrown up; in short, by what we can here see, the damage at sea must be very great." York, Dec. 17. The' contributions in this city, for the relief of the unhappy sufFerers by the late great inundations in the North of England, already subscribed and paid, in consequence of the adver- tisement in our last, amount to the sum of 870. 13s. 5d. exclusive of 5o l. given for the same pur- pose by the Corporation of this city, 20 guineas by the Gentlemen's Club at the York Tavern, and 10 guineas by the Grand Lodge of Free Masons; and it is hoped so laudable an example Will be fol- lowed not only in this county, put in other coun- ties, and by other societies in England. As soon as satisfactory account's can be received Of the real damage which has been sustained in the several places where the inundations have happened, the money will be applied in such manner as may best answer the intent of the charitable contributors. Wednesday last, at the Guildhall, Mr Henry Jubb was chosen an Alderman of this city, in the room of Richard Garland, Esq; deceas'd. A few nights ago a gang of nine thieves beset the mill called Watson's mill, Jiear Ripponden, three or four of whom got upon, the mill wheel, and so through a hole into the mill ; but the miller, being apprized, of their design, Was all the time watch- ing their motions; for when , they had supplied themselves with a quantity of flour, and got upon the mill- wheel in their return, he immediately set the mill a- going, whereby as many as were on the wheel were thrown into the river; but after being well duck'd, they all found means to crawl out and make their escape. ., • Leeds, Dec. 17. We are assured, that a subscrip- tion will be immediately begun in that town and neighbourhood, for the relief of the unhappy suf- ferers by the late inundations in the North. Edinburgh, Dec. 17. It has been proposed by some of the freeholders of this country and Ayr- shire, to make application to parliament for an a- mendment of the game- laws, by making game property. Whether this amendment will be a- greeable to the majority of the land- owners of Scotland, time will discover., The candidates for representing the boroughs of Peebles, Selkirk, Lanerk and Linlithgow, in place of their late member Mr Dickson, are Sir James Cockburn, Bart, and Captain Adam Hay. THe election comes on in a few days.. Newcasle upon Tyne, Dec. 18, 1771.

To the PRINTER. THE late extraordinary conspiracy, formed and carried into execution at Wariaw, will now justify my publishing a story I have often told, and been as often laughed at for giving credit to; but as I had it from the mouth of an Irish Officer in the French service, who was to have been the Koczin- sky of such another bold attempt in London, in the year 1756, I will ( for obvious reasons) publish it. I had received some civilities of Capt. Koczinisky ( so I will call him) at Paris, and became so intimate with him that he borrowed a little of my money ; and as I found he did not love the French nation more than myself, I asked him, why he entered into their service ? He was a younger brother, he said, and his religion, which he then thought too important to part with, led him abroad, and his at- tachment to the Chevalier fixed him. He said, he accompanied his Prince to London in the year 1756, and there they formed a scheme for seizing the late King as he returned from the play- house. To this purpose some hundred Irish Papists ( some of condition, but many of them chairmen) were warn- ed to be in readiness upon some very urgent, though they did not know what occasion; and upon the sig- nal or alarm given, they were to rendezvous oppo- site the Duke of Newcastle's house in Lincoln's- inn- fields. Their intention was not to kill, but to car- ry the King on board a small vessel, prepared for that purpose ; and he assured me he was the very person who undertook to carry this bold stroke into execution. When I started the many difficulties which would arrise in the execution of such a scheme he shewed me the possibility, and even pravticabi- lity of it. He supposed the King to be returning from the play, at about eleven at night, with two or more gentlemen in his coach with him, and four servants behind with flambeaux, without any guard, which was often the case; now supposing him pas- sing through Henrietta- street, his coachman instant- ly shot, the servants cut down from behind, their lights extinguished, and the King and his company pulled out of thecoach, the latter perhaps murdererd, and the King dragged down by half a score men to the water- side; all this might be done in a few mi- nutes, and it requires more than a few minutes for reasonable men, and armed men, and then in the night, they might be at a loss to know which way to pursue. Had any suspicion been formed of such an attempt, the King would not have been found so defenceless; and that is a proof that their scheme would most likely succeed. The Irish Officer knows London as well as I do, and knows whom he might trust, and where to go on such business, much better; aud having many years before took a Lady myself ( without whom I could not be happy in a large city, in the face of the sun, and hundreds of spectators, and who was guarded by males and females, convinced me that the thing is practicable. This story was not told me in confidence; most of the English gentlemen who frequent Paris know this man very Well, and, if it were necessary, I have NO desire of concealing his or my own name. It may now be asked, Why it was not carried into execution then ? The pre- tender was known, and accosted by one who had served him in Scotland, and this alarmed his friends so, that he embarked that very night for France, in the same bark which was prepared for the king. It will be said, perhaps, the Pretender was not in England in 1756, but I do aver he was, Mons. Red- mond, a Lieutenant- general in the French service, who was lately in England, and well known, assured me he was; Mr Lloyd, a gentleman 93 years of age, and now living at St Germain's, and who went there with King JameS and many others, con- firmed it to me, and mr Lloyd eXpressed his sur prize and disapprobation of so rash a visit; he even mentioned to me the Lady's name at whose house the Pretender was concealed, and the consternation and hurry with which they put him on board in the night, after he had been accosted by one who knew him. Mr Fotheringham, another old gen- tleman now living at St Germain's, and who at- tended the Pretender into Scotland in 1745, also assured me of thefe tru- ths. If it were so, it is a proper caution, and ought to be published; if it were not, the gentlemen I have mentioned, who are, exclusive of their political principles, esteem- ed men of veracity and character, have told a wan- ton lie to impose upon your humble servant, An injured Subject, but a Friend to the King. P. S. The French Officer assured me, that in half an hour he could have assembled 1500 Irish chair- men, and other Roman Catholic subjects, in the neighbourhood of Lincoln's- inn.
