Price Two- pence Halfpenny. THURSDAY, December 26, 1771. Numb. 4046. SATURDAY's POST. LONDON, Thursday, December 19. THE following is an authentic Copy of the Conclusion of the Speech which Mr- Flood made in the Irish House of Commons, on Monday the 25th of Novem- ber last, when the Debate on the Pension of Jeremiah Dyson, Esq; came on before the Committee of Supplies: " But of all the Burthens which it has pleased Government to lay upon our devoted Shoulders, that which is the Subject of the present Debate is the most grievous and intolerable.— Who does not know Jeremiah Dyson, Esq. — We know little or him indeed, otherwise than by his Name in our Pension List; but there are others who know him by his Actions. This is he who is endued with those happy Talents, that he has served every Administration, and served every one with equal Success— a civil, pliable, good- natured Gentleman, who will do what you will, and say that you please— for Payment." Here Mr. Flood was interrupted, and called to Order by Mr. M—, who urged that more Respect ought to be paid to Mr. Dyson as one of his Ma- jesty's Officers, and, as such, one whom his Ma- jesty was graciously pleased to repose Confidence However Mr. Flood went on. " As to the Royal Confidence reposed in Mr. Dyson, his gracious Majesty ( whom God long pre- serve) has been graciously lavish of it not only to Mr. Dyson, but to the Friends of Mr. Dyson, and think the Choice was good : The Royal Secrets will, I dare say, be very secure in their Breasts, not only for the Love they bare to his gracious Majesty, but for the Love they bare to themselves. in the present Case, however, we do not want to be informed of that Part of Mr. Dyson's Charac- ter - we know enough of him— every Body knows enough of him— ask the British Treasury- the Bri- tish Council- ask any Englishman who he is, what he is— they can all tell you, for the Gentleman is well known.— But whit have we to do with him ? He never served Ireland, nor the Friends of Ire- land. And if this distressed Kingdom was never benefited by Council, Interest, or Service, I fee no good C why this Kingdom should re- ward him. L nourable Members of this House consider give their Voices corrdingly.- For let every Ma n- sult his Conscience: If Dyson, mall be found to deserve his P conti- nued ; if not, let it be lopped off our Revenue as burthen some and unnecessary." It is said, that the Vice- Roy of a neighbouring Kingdom charges, the Premier of a Sister Kingdom with being the Cause of his Excellency's losing his Majority in the national Senate of the former. The last Advices from the Duke of Gloucester mention, that his Royal Highness finding the Air of Italy agree with him, proposed continuing there till the Spring. A Correspondent says, so fond is the little Colonel of visiting his Relations, that the Mo- ment he heard of the Arrival of the Princess of Brunswick in England, he went to welcome her, but that her Serene Highness refused to fee him. Yesterday, the same Correspondent says, the Colonel paid a Visit to her Royal Highness the Princess Dowager of Wales, who favoured him with an Audience of some Minutes. We hear that the Princess of Brunswick has not yet seen the D. of C. It is said that the Reason why his Serene High- ness the Prince of Brunswick did not accompany his Consort to this Kingdom, was owing to some Important Dispatches received from his Prussian Majesty. It is expected that Messrs. Banks and Solander, in their next Voyage to the South Seas, will be ordered to proceed by the North West Passage, the Spanish Ambassador having peremptorily de- clared to our Ministry, that his Master will not suffer them to pass by Falkland's Island.— Public Advertiser. Three Ships of the Line, with more Troops and Stores, we are told, are to be sent to Falk- land's Island as soon as possible, to keep the Spa- niards in Awe. Orders are sent to the Victualling- Office, to get ready 300 Casks of Beef, 200 of Pork, and 500 Ton of Biscuit, for the Use of a Squadron which is to fail from Spithead the Beginning of February. Four of the Men of War, now fitting out at Portsmouth are supposed to be intended for the East Indies to reinforce Admiral Harland, and will be ready by March. It is said that the Salary of the Supervisors, which the East- India Company are about sending to Bengal, will be 12, oool. per Ann. each, which, with the other Advantages they will have, will make their Places worth 6o, oool. per Ann. each ; had it not been for these great Advantages, no proper Supervisors could be had, the last were to have had about Io, oool. per Ann. each. By a late Order, at Copenhagen, the Impor- tation of English Salt into Denmark has been again permitted. The Duty laid upon it amounts to eight Rixdollars per Last, containing twelve Barrels, besides the usual Excise upon Consump- tion. Lond. Gaz. The four following Minors, when they come of Age, it is said, will be the richest Subjects in his Majesty's Dominions, viz. his Royal Highness the Bishop of Osnaburgh, the Duke of Bedford, Mr. Beckford, Son of the late Alderman, and Mr. The following Letter is confidently asserted to be writ- ten by the Earl of Bute, which, it is said, is to be seen in bit own Hand- writing. Thanks you a thousand thousand times my dear Gilbert for the strenuous part you have taken in the affairs committed to your manage- ment. Be not too open in your operations against the D he will more effectually be done for by caution, and gradual measures, than by any precipitate steps — it would be provoking indeed after having defeated a G le and a C m to be baffled by this giddy obstinate boy.

I received the Burgundy it was a little muddled in the carriage but will prove good I dare say thank you also for the last Sunday a certain Curate of this City, took his Text from the following Words : " I have learned in it State soever I am, therewith to be con- One of the Congregation cried aloud, That's a Lye, for I am sure you with for a Bishoprick." The 20,0ool. Prize, drawn on Monday last, which was said to have belonged to a Gentleman at Dantzick, is the Property of Mr. Solomans, a Jew- broker of this City. A Linen- Draper in Fleet- Street, it seems, was about to purchase the above Ticket from the pre- sent Possessor on Saturday last: Mr. Solomans, however, fortunately for him, asked five Shillings more for it, than the Linen- Draper would give. One of the 2000L. Prizes that came up last Week, we are told, is the Properly of a Coach- man and two Maid Servants belonging to William Ridley, Esq; of Hackney. The Porter at Mr. Norton's, Grocer, in Fleet- Street, bought a Thirty- second Share of No. 19,896, drawn on Monday last a Prize of 5000l. for which he paid no more than 12s. and has re- ceived upwards of 138l. The Duke William, Innis, from Senegal, was lost off Yarmouth Roads, in the Night of the 12th Inst. The Crew saved. Last Week the Peggy, of Dundee, Capt. Hen- derson, was loft off Holy Island, near Berwick ; the Crew were saved. A Letter from Paris, dated December 6, says, " The Sieur Giles George Gerard, ancient Rec- tor of Bartecourt, in the Diocese of Beuvais, died lately in the 92d Year of his Age. He has left a Sister aged 94, a Brother aged 88, and another Sister aged 86. His Maid Servant is 75 Years of Age, and has lived with him 59 Years." Yesterday a Man was taken into Custody, for offering in Payment, at a Paltry Cook's Shop, in Cheapside, some bad Shillings; he was carried before the Lord Mayor, and several more of the fame Sort being found upon him, he was com- mitted to the Poultry Compter, to take his Trial at the Old Bailey. The Jews taken into Custody lately, for being concerned in the Robbery at Mrs. Hutchins's, have, we hear, impeached a Gang of thirty more in the Neighbourhood of Whitechapel, the Mi- nories, & c. One Day last Week a Prisoner made his Escape out of the King's Bench Prison, in a Bureau Bed- stead, which was fetched away by a Porter the same Day. He was not missed till several Hours after. Yesterday Morning a Banker's Clerk set out for Scotland with a Timber- Merchant's Daugh- ter, who had Four Thousand Pounds in her own Possession ; but before the young Couple had got seven Miles out of Town, they were overtaken by two Messengers, and the young Lady brought back to her Friends. Yesterday one of the Head Porters at the Ge- neral Post Office was detected in concealing a Letter, in which were several Bank Notes; he was carried before a Magistrate, who sent him to New- Prison for further Examination. A Number of Letters were also found in his Possession, that had been delivered to him from the Receiving Houses, and not accounted for, though he had received the Money. Some other Mal- practices were likewise discovered. He has been in the Office thirty- five Years, and was formerly Butler to the Earl of Leicester, on whose being appointed Post- master General, he was provided for in the Persons of the highest Rank have interceded with a Great Personage for a Respite for Powell, now under Sentence of Death in Newgate for Forgery. On Tuesday died in Newgate, William Davis, the Person convicted last Sessions of robbing the Mail. He is supposed to have poisoned himself. Great Interest was making to save his Life; but Mail Robbers are never pardoned. Yesterday Afternoon died, in the 81st Year of his Age, Mr. Philip Miller, who was upwards of 49 Years Gardener to the Worshipful Company of Apothecaries, at their Botanic Garden in Chelsea; a Member of the Botanic Academy at Florence, and a Fellow of the Royal Society. He was justly esteemed, not only here but in foreign Countries, as the best Writer in this Kingdom in the Sciences of Botany and Garden- ing ; and his Gardeners Dictionary, and Calen- dar ( both which have passed through many Edi- tions) as also the Figures of Plants, engraven on 300 Copper Plates, and coloured under his Di- rection, will bear lasting Testimony of his great Abilities in his Profession. COUNTRY NEWS. Oxford, Dec. 21. On Tuesday last the follow- ing melancholy Accident happened at the New Inn in this City :— As a Post Coach and Four was coming out of the Yard, the Horse on which the first Postillion rode, suddenly rearing up, fell back- wards upon the Rider, who was unfortunately killed upon the Spot. The poor Man, who was a Day Labourer upon the Turnpike Road at Broadway, in Worcestershire, had been hired to come up on Account of the Worcester Stage having broke down on Monday, in order to bring the Angers in a Post- Coach ; and it is re- marked, that on Monday Evening he several Times wished himself safe at Homo again : He likewise frequently told his Wife that he was further should not live long. — It seems he was re- markable for his Sobriety and Industry, and had been married bout two Years. The following is another remarkable Instance of the good Effects of Rowley's Herb Snuff and Tobacco. Mr. JOHN STRAHAN, Watchmaker, in Ratcliff Row, City Road, London, was subject to a Decay of sight tor many Years, until at length the Use of Glasses and the Assistance of many skilful Persons proved ineffectual; an Inflammation came on in both his Eyes is for a long Time incapable of fol- lowing his Business, and had nothing before him but the melancholy Prospect of becoming blind, when Rowley's Herb Snuff relieved him. He continued the Use of it for about a Year, and can now fee to per- form with Ease the nicest Part of the Watch- making Business without Spectacles. I do aver the above Relation to be true, and that it is a Fact well known to all my Acquaintance. JOHN STRAHAN. This Herb Snuff and Tobacco is fold by Mr. Ga- midge, Bookseller, in Worcester, and may be had in most of the principal Towns in England and Wales— but be careful to ask for Rowley's. Worcester, 13th Dec. 1771. WHEREAS Thomas Bowyer, of the City of Worcester, Druggist, having en- tered into Copartnership with Mr. John Kempson, of London, Druggist, the Copartnership between him and his Brother, James Bowyer, is dissolved ; Mr. JAMES BOWYER therefore informs his Friends and the Public, That the Business, in all it's Branches, will, in future, be carried on solely by him at Wor- cester; and hopes for the Continuance of their Orders, which shall be punctually and faithfully executed.

Flanders. Marseilles, November 19, ADVICES from Constantinople of the 3rd of this Month bring, that on the 18th and 24th past, two terrible Fires happened in the Capital, which re- duced a great Number of Houses to among which was the magnificent Palace of the Aga of the Janissaries. According to the same Advices Count Orlow had presented him- self with all his Fleet on the 21st of October, be- fore the Dardanelles, the Castle of which, on the European Side, he cannonaded with some of his Ships of War, but without doing it any Damage. The Russian quadron afterwards re- tired, leaving four Frigates, which cruize at the entrance of the Dardanelles. Some Days after this Attempt, a brisk Cannonading was heard on the Side of Tenedos, from whence it is judged that his Design is to make himself Mailer of the Isle of Lemnos. Vienna, Dec. 4. A Report prevails this Mo- ment, that the Grand Seignor is dead at Con- stantinople of the Consequence of a natural Sickness. Warsaw, Nov. 30. The King is not yet quite recovered of his Wounds, in Consequence of which his Majesty did not appear in Publick on the 25th, the Anniversary of his Coronation. The King's Uhlans brought in here on the 25th eleven Confederates, who were at five Miles Distance from the Capital. They have also taken the famous Donlanski, who had resolved to kill Kossinski, that he might make no further Discoveries. NEWS. COUNTRY Bristol, Dec. 19. We hear the Bakers of this City have requested the Magistrates to petition his Majesty for the Importation of Corn ; and at a General Committee, held last Week at St. Pe- ter's Hospital, it was unanimously agreed to strengthen the said Petition. Brecon, Dec. 17. Last Monday was brought to our County Gaol, under a strong Guard, John Price, who was condemned to be hanged, at our last Assizes, for Sheepstealing ; but who, by dis- guising himself, escaped out of Prison, and has lived ever since at his House at Gwenthir, in this County, and several Times put the Gaoler and his Assistants to Defiance. But early last Satur- day a strong Party took him by Surprize. LONDON, Saturday, December 21 We are informed that an Arrangement of a new Ministry is fixed, and will take Place soon after the Holidays. The Earl of Chatham, and Earl Temple, we hear, have absolutely agreed to the Terms, pro- posed them. It has been often the Custom of the Great, such as Lord Chatham, to demand from Administration a Carte Blanche for themselves, to fill with the Conditions. This Negotiation, it is said, has been very different; and that Lord Chatham voluntarily agreed to sign a Carte Blanche for his Sovereign to fill up the Covenants, which was accepted on the Part of the King ; and by this political Manoeuvre of his Lordship, he has procured himself and Brother such Terms, that nothing but such a Talk on the Generosity of his Master could ever have possibly acquired. Lord North, by the new Measures with the wo noble Brothers ( if the Report of those Mea- sures are really to be depended upon) is not to r move from his present Department, nor is Lord Sandwich : In the rest of the ministerial Arrange- ments, it is said, there will be a very considerable Change. Notwithstanding all the Application that has been made to a Great Personage for the Appear, lance of the D. of C. again at Court, yet we hear he still remains inflexible. A great Push, it is said, will be made for the Dissolution of a late Marriage, notwithstanding the first Lawyers in the Kingdom have pronounced in Favour of its Validity : However we have had certain Proof that a H e of C s can do what they please with this Country, for an Example of which we need not look farther back than the Middlesex Election. Should the above- mentioned Attempt prove successful, the Lady, who now passes by the Name of Miss Flood, in Read of the Emoluments daily offered her by Way of Hush Money, it is said, will likewise be thrown to that Distance Plebeians should ever keep when Royalty in the Question. It is said that a Discovery of a Duchess of York, which seems to gain much Credit, has created a great Consternation among the Luttrels, and damps the Hopes which the Account of the Duchess of Cumberland's Pregnancy had given to that aspiring Family. Thursday Lady W e met the Duchess of C. on the Road near Windsor, when not the least Compliment passed between them. We hear the Queen has made a Present to the Princess of Brunswick of a Watch set with Dia- monds. We are told that before the Marriage of the Princess of Brunswick it was agreed, that her Royal Highness should visit her native Country often as her Inclination led her, to pay her Compliments in Person to their Majesties, and the rest of the Family. This Day Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Bart. was married at his House in Grosvenor- Square, by Special Licence, to Miss Grenville, Daughter of the late Right Hon. George Grenville, and Niece to Earl Temple : The Ceremony was per- formed by the Dean of Norwich ; after 1759, estimated, on his own Principles, at Ten Millions Sterling ; and his Dignity and Power are not less than his enormous Wealth, for he is also absolute Governor, Proprietor, and Captain Ge- neral of Pennsylvania, and nominates his Lieu- tenant- Governor, and all his Judges, Justices, Militia Officers, & c. during his Pleasure. Yesterday a Rendezvous was opened at a pub- lic- House, near Charing- Cross, for entering Vo- lunteers for his Majesty's Ships now fitting out at Spithead. The Powder- Mills within twenty Miles of London have had Orders to work on Sundays. Orders are sent to Scotland to raise immedi- ately a Number of Men for his Majesty's Service, who are to be sent Abroad, but to what Part is not known. Yesterday a Gentleman at the ' Change laid Five Guineas to One that Press- Warrants would be issued within a Fortnight. A very considerable additional naval Force is ordered to be sent to America, to cruize round the Leeward Islands. We hear that most of the Royal Forests in England are to be surveyed in the Spring, in or- der to their being laid out into Farms. We hear, that several landed Gentlemen intend dividing their large Farms, on the Expiration of the present Leases, into small ones, the highest not to exceed 200l. per Annum. Letters from Warsaw say, that his Polish Majesty is going to lay a Tax on all the Clergy of his Kingdom, amounting to a Tenth of their Revenue, for which he had obtained the Pope's Permission. The Vine, Whittle, from Oporto to Liver- poole, is lost on the Coast near Wexford; the Crew all perished. The New Blessing, Walsh, and the Fortune, Bryne, are reported to be lost; the John, Bell, from Oporto to Dublin, is said to be lost on the Coast of Wexford. On the 7th Inst. a French Vessel, richly laden, from Martinico to Bayonne, was lost within five Leagues of the above Port, and every Soul on board perished. A few Days since a Vessel coming from New- castle to London, at Sea, within five Miles of the Port of Shields, took up a Wooden Cradle, with a Child in it. The Child was alive, and is now well. The Cradle is supposed to have been car- ried to Sea by an Inundation in one of the Places adjacent. sistance of a Soldier passing by ( who behaved with lingular Spirit on the Occasion) seized the Fel- low, and had them before a Magistrate who com- mitted them to Prison. Last Night the House of Sir Robert Ladbroke, upon St. Peter's Hill, was broke open, and the following Things, with several others, were stolen therefrom, viz. a Gold Chain, Value 150l. a Coronation Gold Medal, a broad Five and Twenty, a Gold Commonwealth, a Guinea of George the First, five Diamond Rings, 40 Mourn- ing Rings, about 15l. in Crown Pieces, two Gold Snuff Boxes, a Diamond Breast Buckle, besides a large Quantity of Plate. This Morning two Men and a Woman were taken out of the Black- Horse Alehouse, ( late the Fox) in Black- Horse Alley, Fleet- Street, and were committed to the different Gaols for further Ex- animation. Some of the Things stolen from Sir Robert Lad broke were found upon them, parti- cularly a Number of Crown Pieces, to the Amount of what Sir Robert had lost. On Wednesday Evening no less than eighteen House- Breakers and Street- Robbers were appre- hended by the Keeper of Tothilfields Bridewell, and other Assistance from Justice Fielding, at the Cross- Keys Alehouse, in Peter- Street, Westmin- ster. There is said to be upwards of forty in the Gang, and most of the Burglaries committed in and about Westminster have been done by those that are taken. Some were lodged in Bridewell, and some in the Gatehouse. Sir John Fielding has produced a curious Alarum, invented by one Mr. Henry, which, upon being put up by an ingenious Bell- hanger, with Wires fastened to the Windows and Doors, upon the least Attempt to break in would go off very loudly and alarm the Family. This Piece of Mechanism deserves peculiar Encouragement, as most Burglaries are perpetrated while the Fa- mily are asleep. WORCESTER INFIRMARY. Dec. 26, 1771. NOTICE is hereby given, That a Quarterly General Meeting of the Gover- nors of this Charity will be held at the New Infir- mary on Wednesday next, the 1st of January, at Eleven o'clock in the Morning. THO. STAPLES, Secretary. which the new married Couple set out for Lord Tem- ple's Seat at Stow. Sir Watkin Williams Wynn has sent Orders for opening two public Houses at Oswestry for three Days, on Occasion of his Nuptials. Lord Robert. Spencer a few Days ago was thrown from his Horse, during a Chace, and broke his Collar Bone; but his Lordship is in a fair way of Recovery. We mentioned four Minors, who, when they come to Age, would be the richest Subjects in his On Wednesday came on at Guildhall, before Lord Mansfield, a Cause on an Action brought by the Assignees of a Bankrupt against a Person to recover a large Quanty of Mercery Goods, which the Defendant had purchased of the Bank- rupt just as the Commission was issued out, for Thirty, and some Forty per Cent, under the Prime Cost; when, after a full Hearing, the Jury withdrew for about Half an Hour, and brought in a Verdict for the Plaintiffs, but that the De- fendant should come in as a Creditor under the Commission, for the Money he had paid for the Goods. On Tuesday last died, and on Thusday was interred in the Family Vault in St. Martin's in the Fields, Lucius O'Brien, Esq; Rear Admiral of the White, descended from an antient and noble Family in Ireland. In the War before the last, he served under Admiral Vernon at Cartha- gena, and under the Admirals Rowley and Med- ley, in the Mediterranean. In the ever memo- rable Action in 1759, when the grand French Fleet, commanded by M. Conslans, was defeated by Sir Edward Hawke, he was call away in the Essex, of 70 Guns, in the vigorous Execution of his Duty. He served under Admiral Rodney at the taking of Martinico, who sent him then Commander of the Temple, with a small Squa- dron, to reduce the Grenades, which Service he effectually performed, entirely destroying or taking the French Ships and Fortifications that defended them. A few Days since a Seizure of about a thou- sand Chests of Tea was made in a Vessel in South- hampton Water, by the Collector and Comp troller of the Customs there. She was bound from Lisbon to Dunkirk, and put in for a Pilot. It is the largest Seizure of Tea that was ever re- membered at that Port, and is computed to be worth 20,000l. as the Cargo is most fine Tea. Monday Night a Captain of a Ship, who lives near Wapping, going to Bed earlier than usual, his Wife, who had been abroad, and not suspect- ing him to be at Home, brought a Man with her, whom she introduced into her Bed- Chamber, and they lying down together to repose themselves, disturbed the Husband, who jumped out of Bed, soon made the Gallant fly, and then fell foul of his Wife, whom he beat in a most unmerciful Manner, knocked her down, and jumped upon her Stomach : She was carried to the London Hospital, and the Husband before Justice Sher- wood, who committed him to New Prison. Yesterday Morning Lazarus Moses, Philips and David, the three Jews who were taken up in Pet- ticoat- Lane a few Days since, were brought before Sir John Fielding for Examination ; Isaacs, the King's Evidence, and Zelic, the Receiver of the Goods, were the only Witnesses present. They declared that the Prisoners were sent for from Am- sterdam, by Dr. Levy Weil, to join the Gang; that they left Amsterdam three Days before Isaacs, and lodged with Zelic on their Arrival in Lon- don; it is imagined they were concerned in the Woodford and Bush hill Robberies, but it does not as yet appear that sufficient Evidence can be ad- duced to touch their Lives ; they are to be brought up again next Week for further Examination, when Mrs. Barclay's and Mr. Shepherd's People will have Notice. Sir John asked them if they got clear of this Matter, whether they would go out of the Kingdom? they replied, Most wil- lingly. They cannot speak a Word of English, and Zelic was obliged to interpret for them. They were detected by Sir Charles Bunbury, who coming to Town in his Chariot at the Time, observed the Prisoners busy about a Carriage be- fore his, and suspecting some evil Design, or- Dec. 26, 1771.

Arrived the Mail from Holland and Flanders. Warsaw, December 30. HE Heyduck who was wounded in defending his Sovereign, and died of his Wounds, was a Dissident, and some of the Romish Priests spa- red no Pains in his last Moments to engage him to abjure His Errors, and die a Catholic. When they had exhausted all their Rhetoric, and he found himself near his End, he replied coolly, " You stun me with your Solicitations, but hap- pily for me, they cannot last long: Your Zeal would be better employed in converting the As- sassins of my King." Soon after he had spoken these Words, he expired. Petershurgh, Nov. 22. The last Intelligence from Moscow is extremely favourable, the Dis- temper being so much diminished that Shops are again opened in that City, and People go about Haly came on, who was arraigned for Murder, for the Death of Peter De Lancey, Esq; in a Duel. The Jury, after having been out a few Minutes, convinced ( we may presume) that there was not the least Degree of Malice on his Part, brought in their Verdict guilty of Manslaughter. November 7. Last Tuesday the Joint Publick- Treasurers of this Province, not thinking them- selves warranted to comply with an Order of the Commons House of Assembly alone, to advance the Sum of 300l. Currency to the Committee on the Silk Manufacture, it was adjudged a Con- tempt, and they were, by Order of that House, committed to the Common Gaol in this Town ; but very soon after again set at Liberty, in Conse- quence of a Proclamation issued by his Excel- lency the Governor for dissolving the General Assembly. LONDON, Tuesday, December 24. The News brought on Sunday last, by a Mes- senger from the Spanish Court, has already occa- sioned several Conferences between the Carlton- House, and Buckingham- House Juntos, as well as between the Foreign Ministers. We hear that the Premier has written circular Letters in the most pressing Terms to the King's Men, as they are called, requeuing their early Attendance this Winter, on extraordinary Mat- ters, which are to come on at the very Opening. Jeremiah Dyson, Esq; has been assured by Ad- ministration, that, in Spite of the Irish Com- mons, his Pension shall be paid. Who doubts this, when, as appears from a late Transaction, they make in the Estimate offered to the House, Overcharges of Forty Thousand Pounds with Impunity. A Spy assures us that a great Dispute prevails among the Members of the Buckingham- House Junto, relative to some new Appointments in a Sister Kingdom. Sir Gilbert and Mungo, who have been hitherto Hand and Glove, voted, at their last Meeting, on contrary Sides. There is a very great Difference in the Senti- ments of the Proprietors of East India Stock, re- lative to the Affairs of Bengal, though all are unanimous in commiserating the Miseries that abound there, thro' the Rapacity of Governors, and the late Famine, and in thinking there ought to be some speedy Redress. Some are of Opinion that three Supervisors, invested with an absolute Authority, both civil and military, should be sent out directly, as the speediest Means of Re- formation. Others think that the Fault lies in the partial Administration of Justice there, and the too great Indulgences already granted to a Set of Men, who, forgetting every View to the Good of the Company, are pillaging the Country to amass their own Fortunes. To remedy this last Cause seems to be the Opinion adopted by those most conversant in the Affairs of the Company, and, in all Probability, will be the only one pursued. The Directors, very much to the Credit of their Integrity and Assiduity, are now daily con- sulting with some of the ablest Lawyers in this Kingdom on this Head ; they are likewise assisted by the Advice of his Majesty's Ministers, who ( according to the solemn Declaration of Lord North) have assured them the Good of the Com- pany, and the Public Service, are alone their Objects of Inference. An Officer belonging to the Ship Juno, who was present at the taking Possession of Port Eg- mont, assures us, that they found no more than seventeen Men on the whole Island ; and that all they left was only twelve Elm Boards and an old Pump. The Stores were very considerable, and must have cost Government many Thousand Pounds, there being, agreeably to the Inventory carried by Capt. Stott, many Hundred Bolts of new Canvas, and several Suits of Sails, with Cordage, Anchors, Cables, and likewise Masts, which are all gone— How then does this agree with the Gazette Account ? In which is, " Giving " him ( Captain Stott) the same Possession as his " Majesty had before the 10th of June, 1770." Orders are given for two Companies of the Artillery to hold themselves in Readiness to em- bark for Jamaica, to relieve those now on Duty at that Place. A Correspondent informs us, that within these ten Days past upwards of forty additional Work- men have been taken into Pay at Chatham Dock Yard, by Orders from the Admiralty Board. The Court of Spain have issued Orders to their Commanding Officers in the West Indies to suffer no foreign Subjects to cut Logwood in the Island of Rattan, or even to resort to that Place on any Pretext whatsoever. We are told, from respectable Authority, that a very considerable Squadron has lately sailed from the Texel, for the Dutch Settlements in the East Indies. There are Letters by the Grace, Capt. Cham- bers, which is arrived at Bristol from New- York, that give an Account, that many Foreigners are arrived to settle as Merthants in that City, on Ac- count of the great Increase of Trade in that Part of the World ; that there are now ten large Mer- chant Ships upon the Stocks in the several Yards, ready to launch, and more are to be immediately built, as Trade is carried on from thence almost into all Parts of the World. The same Letters say, that that City was never in so flourishing a Condition, nor was there ever so great a Harmony subsisting among the Inhabitants as at present. Advice is received, that the Royal Louis, a French Frigate, was totally lost last October, about two Leagues from Guadaloupe, by running upon a Rock, and every Soul on board perished, the Ship immediately going to Pieces ; she had got on board Part of a Regiment of Soldiers to reinforce the Garrison there. It was Yesterday reported, that the Grand Sig- nior, irritated at the bad Success of his Arms, had, in a Fit of Despair, poisoned himself, and was found dead in the Seraglio. This Advice is said to have been received two Days ago from Holland. We hear that Britain is by Habeas Corpus re- Yesterday several of the Common- Councilmen of Farringdon Ward Without, waited on the Lord Mayor, setting forth the Methods used to get Mr. Reynolds, the Under Sheriff, to be elected a Common- Councilman for that Ward, and begged that his Lordship would not permit him to be sworn in at Guildhall; when his Lord- ship promised that he should not, till the Matter in Dispute be candidly heard and determined. Nothing ( says a Correspondent) has happened since Mr. Wilkes's Connexion with the City more likely to destroy his Popularity than his forcing Mr. Reynolds into the Common Council, con- trary to the established Usage of the City. Friday Night a Number of Carcase Butchers, Peruke- Makers, & c. had a Meeting at the Three Cranes, Queen- Street, Cheapside, in order to consider of an Application to Parliament for an Act to inflict an high Penalty on those who exer- cise their Trades on Sundays. Above One Hun- dred Pounds are already subscribed towards de- fraying the Expence of obtaining the above- men- tioned Act. They write from Guernsey that five Sail of French homeward bound Ships from Canada, have been lost on the Coast of Brittany, near the Gaskets, between the 8th and 12th Instant. Advices from the County of Kent say, that on Wednesday last, one Francis Read, a Labouring Man of Canterbury, was killed suddenly by a Flash of Lightning, as he was going over Barham- Downs.

We can assure the Public, that a Memo- rial was lately sent off from St. James to the Spanish Court, demanding Release of English Prisoners, which have been at different Times take by Spanish Vessels on various Pretences. From the same Authority we also assert, that there not a Royal Sea- Pert Town in Spain, which ha not at this Time a greater or less Number English Prisoners in close Confinement, The above Points must be fettled before the Dispute now subsisting between England and Spain can be brought to any Termination. It is now confidently asserted that before the Meeting of Parliament there will be a great Change in the Ministry. It is said that Lord Camden will again have the Seals, that Lord Chatham will be one of the Principal Secretaries of State, and that the Rockingham Party will be totally excluded. Yesterday the Lord Mayor went to the sever Markets in the City, and to the principal Coffee Houses, to collect Money and Provisions for the poor Prisoners in the several Gaols. The Co lection in Money amounted to 55l which is 13 more than was ever collected by any Lord May upon the like Occasion. It is remarkable t neither of the Sheriffs attended his Lordship Mr. Wilkes excused himself by saying he w much indisposed, but Mr. Bull made no Excuse We can assure the Public with Certainty, no withstanding the various Reports about a Duche of York, that his late Royal Highness the Duke of that Title never was married Being once : Company with some Ladies who were rallying him on a Declaration which he made of deter mined Celibacy, one of them laughingly resolve to marry him that Instant, and accordingly, get ting a Prayer- Book, read some Part of the Cere- monial between Miss Flood and him. This the sole Foundation ( a very intelligent Co respondent informs us) on which the Report his Marriage is founded; and at St. James's t) Matter is treated wholly as a jocular Circur stance. The Duchess of York ( as Miss F is terme is, we hear, somewhat disordered in her Mins and actually countenancing the Story has ma it implicitly credited. WORCESTER, Thursday, Dec. 26.

A few Days ago, the Driver of a Broad- Wh Waggon paid the Fine appointed by Law, suffering the Waggon to go on, unattended, wh he stopped at a Public House, whereby the Liv of several Persons were imminently endangered. This is inserted, as well for the Information other Drivers, as to deter them from being gui of the like Negligence and Carelessness.— And were to be wished that every Body, who happe to be Witness of such Offences, would shew proper Spirit and Concern for the Safety of th Fellow Creatures, by causing the Delinquents be punished A few Days since, the Reverend Mr. Thom Goodinge was instituted to the Rectory Bredicott, in this County and Diocese, ( void the Death of the Reverend Mr. Wormington) which he was presented by the Dean and Chap of Worcester.

ALMANACKS for the year 1772, MEMORANDUM- BOOKS, both for Gentlemen, Ladies, may be had of the Printer of this Pa Wheaten Houshold lb. oz. dr. lb. oz 087 O 1 1 I 014 I 6 3 2 9 4 2 652 8 5 9 7 11 12 8 WHEN the Speaker had taken the Chair, the Order of Thursday, December 5, was read, the House to resolve itself into a Committee of whole House, to take into Consideration a Mo- a for a Resolution concerning the new Board of accounts, and the Speaker having left the Chair, are was a great Dispute who should be Chairman the Committee. The Courtiers were very stre- ous to have Sir Lucius O'Brien in the Chair, ping by that Means to deprive the Patriotic Party, only of a Vote, but of one of its most forcible speakers and best Supports. The Artifice was seen ough and retaliated by an Endeavour to place r. Malone there; the Contention was great for e Time, but at last it was quieted on both Sides, voting Mr. Connolly to be Chairman. The Committee now opened, and the Expediency creating a new Board of Commissioners, for settle- the national Accounts, was thoroughly canvassed d bolted even to the Bran. Sir George Macartney, r. Malone, Mr. Prime Serjeant. Mr. Attorney eneral, Mr. Solicitor General, Mr. Fortescue, Mr. Hara, and Mr. Forster, were the principal Speakers in Behalf of the Expediency, and even the. solute Necessity of such a Measure. The Argu- ments they chiefly used, were in Substance us low : " There can be nothing more necessary for the Interest of any Nation, than that the Monies granted Parliament should be faithfully applied to the es for which they are appropriated, and neither bezzled, nor profusely and carelessly Squandered ay, nor applied to any other Purpose : This be- granted, as it is a Position none can deny, how n the Nation know whether the public Money is ll or ill disposed of, if the Accounts thereof are t clearly and honestly stated ? It is true the public ccounts are regularly brought into the House, and before a Committee of Accounts, and are seem- gly just, that is to say, the gross Sums, of each veral Account are stated, and the Aggregate of the hole properly summed up, but how are we to low the just Disbursement of the several Sums, hich make up the gross Sum in such Accounts ? they must be taken upon Trust, and the good Opi- on we entertain of the Persons who give them in, sundry of them, and very large Sums to, do not e under the Inspection of the present Commis- ners of Accounts, nor the Auditor General, and deed many capital Articles have never been ex- ined into, nor audited for 68 Years. The last act Examination, being in the Year 1703. " This being the Case, it is certainly an Abuse to hich some Remedy should be applied, and that Re- edy cannot be Found in the present State of the ccounts. The present Commissioners of Accounts the Lord Chancellor, the Chancellor of the Ex- equer, and the three Barons of the Exchequer, these five indeed overlook and examine the Ac- counts of the Vice Treasurer, but are not authorised their Commissions to take Notice of any other, if they were so authorised could they find Time do it, the necessary Duties of their respective ces taking up s0 much of their Time, that they ast either neglect the public Accounts, or the pub- Justice of the Courts wherein they preside. Thus Barrack Accounts, the Forage Accounts, the Accounts for Removal of Soldiers, Embarkations, bling and Lodging, and a Number of other Arti- remain unsettled, and we have only general ads and gross Sums to depend upon. The Pub- may be defrauded with Impunity, as those who end the Money for those Articles are subject to Disquisition or Controul. This is not meant as Inuation that any public Officer has been guilty an; Fraud or Peculation ; but since it is possible h an Evil may happen, it is necessary and expe- ent to provide against it; and this can be done y by a new Board of Commissioners, who having other Duty to perform, may apply themselves this. " This Measure therefore is very different from it of the new Commissioners of Customs and Ex- e. It was urged that the Business of the Revenue been done by a few, therefore there was no casion for an Increase of their Number— but re no Man can say that the Business has been e; 0n the contrary, it has been neglected for ove threescore Years. Therefore, those Gentle- n who voted against the new Revenue Board, y vote for this new Board of Accounts, without urring the Charge of Inconsistency. " It must be confessed that some additional Ex- ce will accrue from this Measure, but it is a cessary Expence, that may be the saving of Thou- ds to the Nation; and no Man in private Life l refuse a Salary to a Steward, who, by overlook - g his Workmen, and examining his Tradesmens' ls, can prevent an Overcharge for Work not ne, or Goods not delivered." These Arguments seemed very plausible, till the eciousness of them was exposed by the Friends their Country. Mr. Flood, Mr. Hussey, Sir cius O'Brien, Sir William Mayne, Sir Edward wenham, Mr. Ponsonby, Mr. Cramer, & c. spoke the following Effect: " At a Time when this Nation is oppressed with a avy Debt, burthened with Taxes, losing its Trade, creasing in its Revenue, and swarming with Beg- rs and Multitudes or Wretches who are not able procure the common Necessaries of Life; to add its Burthen by a needless Expence, which this ingdom is unable to bear, can be deemed no- but a wanton Stretch of Power, and a copy- g after the Egyptian Task- masters, in forcing us make Prick without Straw. The Nation hath therto felt no Inconvenience from the present ode of stating the public Accounts. And if it been so evil as the Right Honourable Gentlemen should make us believe where has been the Ho- nestly or the good Policy of the Lords Lieutenants r sixty- eight Years, to permit such a growing il ?— But we may acquit them ; no Evils appear have accrued, and it would be the Height of olly to be at the Charge of Nine Thousand Pounds Year, for what in the Sessions of 1753 was done r only Seven Hundred and Twenty Pounds. The entlemen say, that the new Commissioners are to through all the Chest full of Vouchers and other apers for sixty- eight Years past.— But pray to what nd ? Suppose any Fraud is found out, who can be unished for it ? Can we open Graves to find Offen- ers? Can we punish the Dead? But they may say, perhaps, that we ought to guard against Futurity ; but cannot that be done without such an enormous expence? The Committee of Accounts of this House are the proper Auditors of all public Ac- counts; a few Sittings extraordinary will do the siness. But by their new Mode, here are four Commissioners at Five Hundred a Year each, wise en to be sure they must be, and another Commis- sioner, who must be a wiser Man than the rest, is to Clerks, Houses for the Commissioners, and an Office to do Business; so that all together will not cost less than at the Rate of Nine Thousand a Year, to do what a Couple of honest Clerks might do. But it is plain, it is only a Design to increase Dependants on Government, and secure a Majority. To provide for those who were disappointed by our Resolution against a new Board of Customs, and another of Excise. It were to be wished that we had the same Law here as they have in Britain, which renders certain Commissioners incapable to sit in the House. If this Question should be divided in Favour of this new Board, it is to be hoped no Members of this House are named in the Commission; but if they are, it would be but decent in them to leave the House while the Question is debated; for as they are interested, they ought not to be Judges in a Cause wherein they are Parties themselves." In the first Debate Sir William Mayne offered, with a true patriotic Spirit, to execute the Office of one of the Commissioners himself, without any Fee or Reward ; an Example too good to be followed by those venal Souls who will enjoy the Places. The Debate lasted till near Three o'Clock in the Morning, when the Question being put, the House divided, and the Numbers were, against the Reso- lution, One Hundred and Twenty- four, for the Reso- lution, One Hundred and Nineteen. Thus the Court Party carried their Point by a Majority of only Five, which Majority does not shew the Sense of the Na- tion to be for the new Board, or that the Courtiers have Cause to exult, since the Majority would not have appeared, had not Mr. Barry, Mr. French, Mr. Poole, and several others, been absent by Rea- son of Sickness, and Counsellor Fitzgibbon's being taken ill in the House. After he had spoken against the Measure for near an. Hour, he was obliged to retire. On the other Side, it is remarkable, that the five Gentlemen, whose Votes carried the Question, were the individual Persons appointed Commissioners; so that they may be truly said to have been Judges in their own Cause. Such was the Event of this grand Debate, which lasted near twelve Hours. The Galleries were crouded more than has been observed this whole Session, most of whom, Ladies as well as Gentle- men, waited till the House adjourned.

THE sacred Writings contain The Words of eter- nal Life ; and Men in all Ages, of the most illus- trious Characters, have always entertained the utmost Reverence for the DIVINE BEING, and the greatest Veneration for his Word. " I esteem," says holy Job, " the Words of thy Mouth, more than my ne- " cessary Food." " I have more Understanding," says David, " than all my Teachers, because thy Testi- " monies are my Meditations." " Study thé holy " Scriptures," says the great Mr. Locke, " therein " are contained the Words of eternal Life : It hath " GOD for its Author, SALVATION for its End, and " TRUTH, without any Mixture of Error, for its " Matter." Many Difficulties attend the Study of the holy Scriptures, owing to their having been written in Languages whose Genius is different from that of our own : An earnest Desire to remove those Difficulties has furnished me with abundant Reason for engaging in this Performance. How faithfully and judiciously it is executed, must be left entirely to the Decision of the impartial Public. Clifton, Nov. 30, 1771. S. NEWTON. London : Printed for the Author, and sold by T.

SIR, MAN, in all Probability, it not liable to more Diseases than there are Means of Cure ; as with a weakly Constitutions subject to Disorders of the Head, Stomach, and Lungs, toge- ther with Cholics, Palpitations of the Heart, the Rheumatism. & c. an old Age may be attained: This is a Truth of which I myself am a Testimony. It is true, Indeed, that Medicine, and proper Diet have always been of Service to me; and as open as I have I been told, Qui vivit, misere vivit ? my Answer has been, Vivit to men. I have bad Death often before my Eyes ; and believe it has been owing to my own Care and Precaution that I am now to be numbered amongst the Living. L is most natural, and bigbly consistent with Reason and good Sense. that when we are afflicted with a bad Stats of Health. we should have Recourse to Medicine and entry neces- sary Meansof Cure. In a Word, on the 12th of October 1770 ( for this is the Circumstance at present chiefly to be con- side) a Cold in my Head, being a Disease to which I am frequently subject, threatened me with a total Suffocation; insomuch, that my own Knowledge, and Experience in usual Remedies failing me, I concluded that my latter End was at Hand; 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 those 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. LANTHOlNE.

To Dr. FLUGGER, In Prescot- Street, Goodman's Fields, London. SIR, IShould think myself wanting in Gratitude to you, and Humanity to my Fellow if I longer omitted acquainting the Public of the most surprising Cure I have obtained by the Use of your Lignorum Antiscorbutic Drops. It is a great many Years since I was first taken ill of the Scurvy, and with a very sharp Humour all over my Body ; and at last it fell into my Legs, and broke out in Scabs, with a great Swelling, out of which issued a sharp watery Matter: I could find it run a Pintin a Day. In this Situation I was for two Years, so that I was not able to work or stand. I have had the Advice of many eminent Physicians and Surgeons without receiving the least Benefit. I was in the most afflicting Situation, without Hope of Re- covery ; when happily reading the News- paper, I read the surprising Cure of Mr. Cock's Wife at Horsham I sent to Mr. Shoubridge, the Agent for the Sale of your Drops in Horsham, for a Bottle: In taking of which I found great Benefit, particularly in my Constitution and Appetite ; and by continuing them for a few Months, I am now perfectly cured, and free from every Disorder whatsoever. Witness my Hand, EDWARD WOOD. Sheply, in the County of Sussex near Horsham, 15th June, 1771. These Drops will perfectly cure the most inveterate Scurvy, Leprosy, pimpled Face, of ever so long standing ; likewise the Evil, Fistulas, Piles, old obstinate Sores or Ulcers, and is a sovereign Remedy in all Disorders arising from the Foulness of Blood incident to the Fair Sex ; and may be taken by Per- sons of the most delicate Constitutions in any Season or Cli- mate, without the least Inconvenience or Hindrance of Bu- siness ; and hath this particular Quality different from most other Medicines, that they strengthen the Patient surprizingly.
