Price Two- pence Halfpenny. THURSDAY, July 22, 1773. Numb. 4128. Saturday's and Sunday's Posts LONDON, Friday, July 16. on Wednesday, at One o'Clock, came on before the Recorder, at Guildhall, the Cause between the Common Serjeant of the City of London, Plaintiff, and Mr. Al- derman Plumbe, Defendant. The Action was brought upon an ex Officio Information, filed by the Common Serjeant against Mr. Plumbe, as Warden of the Gold- smith's Company, for wilful Disobedience of the late Mr. Beckford's Precept, issued during his Mayoralty. Mr. Plumbe admitted receiving the Precept, but pleaded in Excuse for disobeying it, that the Goldsmiths Company was an ancient one, go- verned by Bye Laws of its own framing, which rendered it totally independent and exempt from the Lord Mayor's Controul. In Consequence of which he denied the Mayor's Authority to issue Precepts to that Company; but admitting his Authority to be well founded, yet the Business for which the Livery were to be summoned was of a Nature that rendered their Attendance highly improper. Mr. Allen opened the Pleadings, by stating the Defendant's supposed Criminality and Plea in Extenuation. He was succeeded by Mr. Dunning, who quoted Instances almost innumerable, as Cases in Point to prove the Authority exercised by different Lord Mayors since the Time of Edward the Third, over not only the Goldsmiths, but every other Company. In some of which Instances entered in the refertory Book, the Lord Mayor was ex- pressly stiled the Master of all the Companies. Mr. Dunning was answered by Serjeant Bur- land, who placed his Client's Cause in the most favourable Point of View, urging every Thing which Ingenuity could suggest in Extenuation of the supposed Offence; he remarked upon the In- stances produced by Mr. Dunning, and called them " few" in Number. When Mr. Dunning made his final Reply, he took Notice of this, and said, " that as to the Paucity of Instances the Gentleman had no Right to complain. Quivedo ( says he) when, in the Romance, he is made to visit Hell, saw several Kings there, and expressing his Surprize that he saw no more, his Guide told him, there were all that had ever reigned." I therefore ( concluded Mr. Dunning) bring all the Instances which are to be produced. About Eleven at Night the Pleadings finished, when the Recorder summed up the Evidence, and at Twelve o'clock the Jury withdrew for about three Quarters of an Hour, when they returned a Verdict for the Plaintiff. It is said that Messrs. Wilkes and Bull will be returned by the Livery to the Court of Aldermen, at the ensuing Election for Lord Mayor. Lord Mansfield is said to be applying all his leisure Hours in revising the Penal Laws of this Kingdom, the Result of which is to be submitted to Parliament at their next Meeting. On Sunday his Majesty's Hair was cut off, and he wore a fine Spanish Fly Wig, of the exact Co- lour of his Eyebrows. This Kind of Hair is exceedingly scarce, and was with the utmost Dif- ficulty procured. It is said that a Great Personage, by the Advice of the Physicians, has had his Hair cut off, on Account of his being subject to a Pain in the Head. The Peruke- makers are highly elated at a Great Personage having his Hair cut off, as it will certainly give a very beneficial Turn to their Business. As the new Act for regulating the Currency of Gold Coin does not express what shall be con- sidered as reasonable Wear, it may be no useless Piece of Information to our Readers to acquaint them, that the Bank receive no Guineas which weigh less than five Penny- weights and three Grains. This estimating the real Weight of a Guinea to be five Penny- weights, nine Grains, and about Nine- sixteenths, is an Allowance of about it. taking the Price of Gold at the Coin- age Standard, or 31. 17s. 6d. per Ounce. It is droll enough to see the present Figure of Tradesmen's Shops, especially of Bankers, and to an ingenious Painter would afford a most laugh- able Picture of the Times, every Man with his Scales in his Hands, as if the whole Nation were turned Balance- Makers. As a Proof of the happy Consequences of the late judicious Money Bill, the following Fact may be depended upon : A Gentleman travelling in the western Part of this Kingdom, stopped at a Hut on a Plain in order to refresh himself, & c. At his Departure he offered the Holt a Guinea to change ( having but 1s. 6d. in Silver about him). Boniface refused to take it; the Travel- ler offered a Second and Third ( which was all he had). Neither of the Guineas pleasing this Son of Bacchus, who weighed the same in large Wooden Scales, he, without any Ceremony, was going to cut two of the three Guineas. The Gentleman remonstrated, and offered a Bank Note for Exchange. The Host, not being able or willing to do it, insisted on detaining the Gui- neas, as being bad. What was to be done? The Landlord insisted on going to the Mayor of a neighbouring Town, only eight Miles distant, who, ceed on his Journey, after being detained Half a Day, and taken 16 Miles out of his Road. Such are, and will be the blessed Effects of this wife and reasonable Wearing Bill. When the great Disturbance was about the Birmingham Halfpence, several Persons made considerable Sums of Money by buying them up at a small Price; and it is said that several of the Gentry in the Neighbourhood of Duke's Place are carrying on the same Traffic about the Gold Coin, believing that Mankind will soon grow tired of wrangling and disputing whenever a Guinea is produced, and the Coin, without Re- gard to the Standard, will soon be received again in Payment by the general Consent of Mankind. It is reported that the Clippers and Coiners at Sheffield and Birmingham are greatly rejoiced at the Guinea Act, as it will be the Means of bring- ing forth the Bankers Hoards of good Guineas, which will supply them with further Employment, which was well nigh totally stopped, as they had reduced the late current Coin as low as it would bear. A Collector of Taxes having a Dispute with a Gentleman's Servant the other Day, about the Weight of a Guinea, took out his Scales to weigh it, laying down his Purse and Collector's Book upon the Threshold, and while he and the Ser- vant were intent upon this new Amusement, a Sharper going by, snatched up the Purse, and marched off with his Booty. A Report strongly prevails that the Court of France have lately made Proposals to our Ministry to relinquish the Island of Corsica, upon Condi- tion of our taking certain Measures to stop the too rapid Progress of the Russian Arms. Tuesday the Purser of the Pigot East Indiaman, Capt. Richardson, and the Purser of the Earl of Lincoln Ditto, Capt. Todd, came to the India- House, with an Account of those Ships being safe arrived at Plymouth, the first from Bencoolen, and the other from China. On Tuesday died, at his Seat at Twickenham in Middlesex, the Right Hon. Lord Tyrawley, Field Marshal of his Majesty's Forces, Colonel of the second Regiment of Foot Guards, Gover- nor of Portsmouth, and one of his Majesty's most Honourable Privy Council. A few Days since a Tradesman, in Southwark, having conceived some Suspicion of his Wife, pretended a Journey, but returning at Dinner- time, discovered his Lady and the suspected Gen- tleman dining together in a very sociable Manner The latter he discharged a Pistol at, which went through his Right Arm; the former he conducted up to her Bed- chamber, and very affectionately obliged her with the Discipline of a Horsewhip. Wednesday Night a Fire broke out in a Chim- ney belonging to Capt. Dawell, at Rotherhithe, when some Persons, under Pretence of afflicting in putting it out, carried off a Pair of Silver Candlesticks and a Quart Silver Tankard. Wednesday the Sessions ended at the Old Bailey, when five Prisoners were tried, one of whom was capitally convicted, viz. Francis Grainger, for seloniously being at large ( and escaping out of the Bail- Dock at Hicks's Hall) after he had re- ceived Sentence of Transportation for a Petty Larceny. The Jury recommended him for Mercy. Thomas Graves and James Guy, Accessaries to Leonard in the Affair of Miss Boss, were branded, and ordered to be imprisoned twelve Months in Newgate. The following capital Convicts have received his Majesty's Mercy, on Condition of Transpor- tation for seven Years, viz. John Cook, James Webb, Wm. Williams, John Birch, John Wal- ters, Thomas Denison, Tho. Burn, Edw. Lade, John Smith, James Watby, Wm. Lushby, Cha. Evans, and Samuel Plaistow ; and John Gahagan for his Life. At this Session 10 Prisoners received Judgment of Death; 49 ( besides the above Respites) were sentenced to be transported for 7 Years; one for 14 Years, 8 branded, 6 ordered to be privately whipped, and 31 discharged by Proclamation. Stratford, the Apothecary, who is in Clerken well Bridewell, on a Charge of an odious Nature is to be tried for an Outlawry, having been out- lawry on his breaking that Prison some Years ago. York, July 18. Last Wednesday one J. Miller was apprehended near Bingley, in this County, by Virtue of a Warrant from Col. Townley, and brought before him the next Day. Milner for some Time denied the Crime of clipping and di- minishing Money, which was proved against him; but when his Mittimus was drawing, his Resolution failed him, and he confessed very can- didly the Crime he was charged with, and after- wards made some very material Discoveries against some notorious Offenders. Warrants were imme- diately issued, and it is hoped they will soon be apprehended. Leeds, July 13. We are very sorry to hear, upon good Authority, that the current Coin of this Kingdom, is ( in general) so very much di- minished or debased, that few People will accept it in Payment. This Stoppage in the Circulation of Cash, has already had a very bad Effect upon all Kinds of Traffic, and is peculiarly oppressive upon Shopkeepers and the laborious Poor, the former not daring to take such Money for the Necessaries of Life which they sell to the latter, and the latter not able to receive any other Kind from their Employers, as there is scarce any good Money to be met with. This distressing Circum- stance has induced several very considerable Ma- and Shopkeepers, till they amount to 101. or 151. when those Notes will be accepted by the Drawers, and discharged in London Bills, with the Allow- ance of Discount.— This Expedient is absolutely necessary at present for the Sake of the Poor ; but the Necessity shews the very great Distresses of the Times-. The following Person being a Prisoner for Debt in the Goal for the City of Worcester and County of the same. City, does hereby give Notice that he in- tends to take the Benefit of an Act of Parliament, passed in the Twelfth Year of the Reign of his pre- sent Majesty King George the Third, intituled, An Act for the Relief of Insolvent Debtors, at the next General or General Quarter Sessions of the Peace to be held for the said City and County of the same City, or any Adjournment thereof which shall hap- pen next after Thirty Days from the first Publica- tion of the under- mentioned Name, viz.

A Report is spread here that the Grand- Vizir, having received Advice of the Advantage obtained by the Russia over our Troops near Babadagh the Beginning of last Month, detached on at Side three Pachas with 70,000 Men, who at only drove the Enemy from Babadagh, but so pursued them beyond the Danube, and cut Pieces, or made Prisoners, the greatest Part of them. Vienna, June 26. They write from Temeswar that they were positively informed there that Count Romanzow had passed the Danube; that they were assured by a Pacha that the Grand Vizir had assembled all the Troops of the neigh- louring Provinces around his Camp, the Situa- Ion of which was extraordinarily advantageous, and, as the two Armies are now pretty near, they expected every Moment a general Battle. The said Pacha laid, that with 2000 Men he had some to Blows, a few Days ago, on the Northern Bank of the Danube, near Orsova, with a Corps of Russians, whom he overthrew, and made the Commander and seven other Officers Prisoners. LONDON. Monday, July 19. Mr. D , it is reported, intends next Ses- sion of Parliament to move for an Amendment to In Act passed long since to stop the further Pro- guess of Quacks, with which this Kingdom bounds, to the Ruin of its Subjects, and Scan- al of its Police. There is no Nation on Earth suffers so much by this destructive Set of Mon- gers as England, and they cannot be suppressed too soon, nor punished severe enough ; but unless she Diplomas from Scotch Universities are ren- dered null and void, all the Measures our Le- gislature can take for their Abolition will prove Suite ineffectual. While many People were talking in a political Coffee House, not far from St. James's, on the Business that brought over the Secretary of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland at this Time, and all agreeing that it must be that of a Union between England and Ireland, a Noble Lord started up and said it was upon an Errand of more Utility, being to strike off a Swarm of foreign Pensioners the lrish were shamefully loaded with, whilst many of their own Country Gentlemen, not knowing now to get Bread, were in a State of Desperation. Thursday General Harvey kissed his Majesty's Hand on being appointed Governor of Portsmouth, in the Room of Lord Tyrawley, deceased. The same Day, Lord Waldegrave kissed his Majesty's Hand on being appointed Colonel of the second Regiment of Foot Guards in the Room of Lord Tyrawley. Lord Townshend is appointed Colonel of the second Regiment of Dragoon Guards, in the Room of Lord Waldegrave. it is said that Lord Tyrawley begged some Time before his Death that he might be laid in the Burying- Ground of the Royal Hospital at Chelsea, with the old Soldiers of that Foundation, Saying, " As he had bravely lived with them in the Field, so he wished, after Death, that his Re- mains might be deposited with their's : A Re- quest that closed the Life of this noble Veteran. The late Verdict against the disobedient Com- panies has greatly disconcerted the Ministry, as they had great Hopes of rendering Common Halls totally useless. A Correspondent wonders that the Framer of the Guinea Bill should declare, that he could not devise a Method to lower the Price of Provisions ; for the very Thing which he thought impracticable his the immediate Consequence of this Guinea Bill. All Accounts from the different Counties prove that the Poor are utterly deprived of Bread, not being able to get by their Labour any Money that will pass ; so that in a short Time those who have good Money may purchase what they please at their own Price ; and those who have a due Con- tempt and Hatred for the Scum of the Earth and the Dregs of the People, will be gratified in see- ling them sufficiently humbled. A Correspondent observes that as there was an Association in 1745, during the Rebellion, to take Bank Notes though under Par, set on Foot by our present worthy Chamberlain, and subscribed to by above 1600 Merchants, & c. whether at this Junc- ture an Association being subscribed to as above, for taking Guineas in all Payments, of the Value of 19s. 6d. each, or upwards ( Half and Quarter Guineas in the same Proportion) would not be an immediate Remedy to our present Distress. We are told that the Bankers, & c. in Scotland, were informed of the Particulars of the late Bill to prevent the diminishing of the Coin, before any of the Bankers or Merchants in London were. From this we may guess where that distressful Act originated. The Post- Masters General have ordered Money- Scales and Weights to be made for the Inland and Foreign Offices, and one for each Letter Carrier, that they may weigh all Gold before they take it. Upward, of a hundred Sets are ordered for this Purpose. An eminent Jew has within these few Days purchased upwards of 2ooo Guineas, for which he gave 20s. each ; they were deficient in Weight from 2s. to 2s. 6d. It is with Confidence said, that the Bank has already cut to the Amount of 25, oool. in Gui- neas and Half Guineas. Petitions are, we hear, preparing from all the Counties in England, letting forth the Distresses which the Poor labour under, occasioned by the late Coin Act, praying Relief from them. The most profitable Trade now is the Business of Scale- making ; many Thousands have already been sold, and more Thousands bespoke ; Thanks to the Premier, our great Master of the Equili- brium, we shall have Balance Mailers in every Shop and every House in the Kingdom. Though C s F— x pretends to laugh it off with his usual Pleasantry,. yet it is certain that he was absolutely refused a Degree in Laws at the late Installation. ford last Week paid Ten Guineas each for that Compliment. A Scotch Peruke- Maker was employed to make a Great Personage's Spanish Fly, so that now both the Out as well as the Inside of his Head, is entirely furnished by Scotchmen. It is talked of at the Well End of the Town, that the Distinction next Winter between the Mi- nisterial and Patriotic Members will be as follows, the former will wear all black Bob Wigs, and the latter their own Hair. Hair has role upon the above Occasion 25 per Cent. Extract of a Letter from on board the Pigott East Indiaman, lately arrived at Plymouth from Bencoolen. —" The Pirate Vessel brought in by a Dutch Frigate of War to the Cape of Good Hope the Day before we left that Place ( and which has been reported in the London Papers to have been the Aurora) was an American built Vessel, designed as a Privateer for the Mediterranean ; the Captain of which was murdered by the Chief Mate, during a Cruize off the Canary Islands, who took the Command, but was soon after deposed by the Crew, and thrown overboard. There were an Hundred and Twenty Men in her, and a great Quantity of Specie." An Ordinance lately issued at Paris declares, that all English Velvets and Cotton Stuffs, as well as all other Stuffs of the Manufacture of England, shall be prohibited from Admission into France, under the Penalty of Seizure of the Goods, and a Fine of 3000 Livres. The Reason, Capt. Legros, from Cadiz to Havre de Grace is totally lost near Havre de Grace, and all the People drowned. Seventy per Cent was given on the above Ship. Friday se'nnight Ann Hales, Servant to Mess. Wood and Godfrey, of Town Malling, was sound strangled at the Side of her Bed ( at her Master's Farm House, at Ley born, where she was House- keeper) with a Clock Line round her Neck tied to the Bed- post below the Steddler. An Inquest was taken, and the Jury found her a Lunatic. The Coroner ordered her Body to be opened to know if she was pregnant ; as she had declared, that if she was with Child she would make away with herself ; and the Surgeon said she was two Months or ten Weeks gone. On Thursday Afternoon a Gentleman at New- ington was found hanging in his Stable ; he had put into his Pocket two Seven- pound Weights and a large Iron Wedge, in order to make him heavy. Just before he committed this rash Act, he went up Stairs to his Wife, who lay ill in Bed, kissed her, bid her farewell, and told her he should never see her again. When the poor Woman heard of what her Husband had done, she was so much affected as to be quite delirious. Saturday Morning at Ten o'Clock Welsh, who perjured himself in swearing he was a House- keeper qualified for Bail, received one Part of his Sentence by standing an Hour in the Pillory at Charing Cross, after which he was carried back to Newgate to remain three Months in Prison, and then be transported for seven Years. On Saturday Evening a poor Bricklayer went into Whitechapel Market to purchase a Leg of Mutton, for the Payment of which he offered a Half- Guinea to the Butcher to change ; who weighing it, and finding it one Shilling too light, cut it in Pieces, and then delivered it to the poor Man, on whom the Inhumanity so strongly operated, that he went up Stairs and hanged himself, at his Lodgings in Tower- Street. The following Piece of Cruelty was acted a sew Days since in Oxfordshire : A Farmer's Wife having contracted an Affection for a young Fellow in the same Village, and often expressing her De- sire for the Death of her Husband, that she might enjoy the Wickedness of her Heart, the young Man very soon compleated her Wishes ; for being at a neighbouring Public- House along with the Husband, where the latter had drank too freely, they both set out about Eleven o'Clock at Night to return Home ; when the former took an Op- portunity to knock down the Farmer, and then cut his Throat in a most shocking Manner. The Villain immediately fled the Country, and has not as yet been heard of. Extract of a Letter from Leominster, July 14. " At our Fair last Saturday, a young Man was taken up and committed to Prison, on Suspicion of Horsestealing as he could not produce a Voucher to the Horse he sold, and was observed to disfigure the Horse very much that Morning by cutting his Mane and Tail. — He is said to come from Dud- ley, and goes by the Name of John Taylor.— Yesterday he confessed that he had deserted twice from the Marines, and was then just come from the Regiment at Chatham ; and that between Stratford and Worcester he stole the Horse from the Door of a House on the Road, and took a Saddle from near the same Place." Oxford, July 17. Saturday last Richard Lane, M. A. was elected Fellow of University College. — And last Wednesday the Reverend Thomas Hopkins, B. A. was chosen Fellow of Jesus.— As was the Reverend Maurice Lewis, B. A. chosen Scholar of that College. Worcester, July 14, 1773.

Aguestangi Ali Pacha having received Advice that a Body of Russian Troops were passing the Danube, two Leagues above Giurgewo, upon a Bridge of Boats, they marched in great Haste towards the Russians, and attacked them with such Impetuosity, that the whole Corps was entirely defeated, and endeavoured to re- embark after a considerable Loss, having 600 taken Prisoners, among whom was the Brother of Prince Repnin. Several of the Russian Boats were funk ; and it is likewise assured, that the Turkish Artillery did great Execution among some other Russian Troops who were planted to protect the Retreat of their own People. The Grand Vizir was very lavish in recompensing the Conquerors. LONDON, Tuesday, July 20. Yesterday Morning came on before Lord Mans- field and a special Jury, the Cause between Alex- ander Campbell, Esq; and William Hall, Esq; when it appearing that the Matter of Law arising out of the Facts was too considerable to be ar- gued and adjudged at the Sittings, it was advised that the Facts should be found by the Jury, and that the legal Merits of the Cause should be heard in the Court of King's Bench, in the en- suing Term. The Attention of the Public is very properly directed to the Event of this Cause; a more important one has not been litigated since the Time of Hampden. The Action is brought against Mr. Hall, Col- lector of Customs in Grenada, for seizing the Sugars of Mr. Campbell, for Non- payment of the Duty of Four l- half per Cent, lately imposed on all Commodities shipped off the new ceded Islands. As this Duty is laid on by the King's Commission only, without the Concurrence of Parliament, or the Assembly of the Islands, the Measure can never be supported by Judges of Honesty and Conscience. A Prerogative of this Nature must inevitably overthrow the Liberty of this Country ; for if the King can impose this Duty legally, under an Idea of having conquered this Island, the Exercise of his Power need not be confined to Grenada, it may equally operate in Florida, in Canada, and the East Indies:— It need not be limitted to the Four 1 - half percent. it may be safely magnified to 2o or 50 per Cent, nay, it may drain all the Profits of the industrious Colonist, and leave him nothing but what the Generosity of a King may afford, to preserve his wretched Existence under the Lash of Tyranny. This Revenue then, thus raised, already consi- derable, daily increasing, unappropriated, and unaccounted for, may be employed by the Mi- nister to the most infamous Purposes of Corrup- tion, & c. & c. The Cause between the City of London and the refractory Companies, which was determined on Wednesday last at Guildhall, in Favour of the former, is to be removed by Appeal to the House of Lords. The following is extracted from the Acts of Parliament for the Preservation of the Moor Game in England.— The Act, after setting forth the Necessity of further Regulations for the Pre- servation of the Game, says : That from and after the 24th of June, 1773, no Person shall wil- fully take, kill, buy, or have in Possession, any Heath Fowl, called Black Game, between the 10th of December and the 20th of August,— nor any Grouse, called Red Game, between the 10th of December and the 12th of August, — nor any Bustard, between the 1st of March and the 1st of December, in any Year. After the said 24th of June, if any Person offend against the said Act, forfeits for the first Offence, upon Conviction, any Sum not exceeding 20I. nor less than 10I. and for the second, and every subsequent Offence, any Sum not exceeding 30I. nor less than 20I. to be recovered in any of the Courts of Westminster, provided such Action be brought within six Months after such Offence is committed. We are assured from Authority that the several Receivers of the public Revenue will have Di- rections to cut and deface all unlawfully dimi- nished Coin ( pursuant to the late Act of Parlia- ment) that shall be hereafter tendered to them in Payment; and that all Gold Coin tendered to them, which shall be under the Weight herein after specified, is to be considered by them as Coin unlawfully diminished, viz. Guineas coined prior to the 1st pwt. gr. Geo. III. — 5 3 Half Guineas during the above Period — 2 13 Guineas coined during the Reign of his present Majesty prior to 1 st Jan. 1772 5 6 Half Guineas during the same Pe- riod —- ----- 2 14 Quarter Guineas — — 1 7 Guineas coined subsequent to the 1 st Jan. 1772 5 8 Half Guineas coined subsequent to the 1st Jan. 1772 — 2 14 And we are further assured that, for accelerating the Destruction of such diminished Coin, and to accommodate the Holders thereof as much as possible, the Receivers will be impowered to ac- cept all such cut Money in Payment at the Rate of 3I. 18s. per oz. and that the Bank of England will purchase all such cut Money at the Rate aforesaid. A Gentleman the other Day paying in some Money to the Bank, they observed an old Half Guinea that wanted but Nine- pence, which they cut, though the Gentleman offered to change it. ; A written Paper is pasted up at the Royal Ex- change intimating the Quantity of light Money that has already been cut in Pieces at the Bank. An Order of Council is talked of for the Pur- pwt. S 5 2 3 gt. 3 13 14 7 8 14 Gold Coin that is under the prescribed Weight, in order to have the Value of it, which will pre- vent Trouble, and a great Number of Disputes, among all Orders of People. A Prosecution is commenced against a certain Tradesman in the City, for defacing a Guinea of Charles the Second. It is imagined that the Tradesman cannot defend his Right of defacing the Coin on the Authority of an Act of Parliament Which does not mention the Time when such a Power shall be exerted or, if the Act should be allowed to be valid notwithstanding this Defi- ciency, it will be difficult for the Defendant to prove that Three Shilling's short of Weight is be- yond a reasonable Wear since the Time of Charles the Second. The Bank of England is now in such Credit, and may have such great Sums of ready Money always at Command, that it is in their Power to encrease our ready Money, by circulating their Notes as much as they please. This, we are glad to hear, they are determined to do by speedily issuing Five Pound Notes, which will essentially serve the trading Part of this Kingdom, and in a great Measure remedy the Inconveniencies we labour under by the late Act to prevent the dimi- nishing the Gold Coin. Government have it now most sincerely at Heart to pay off the National Debt, as soon as possible; and they are at present planning a Scheme for that Purpose. This they are consci- ous will be the only Means to take off those Taxes which now enhance the Price not only of those Things which are necessary for the Subsistance of poor Workmen, but also of many Things neces- sary For our Manufactures; which Taxes are like- wise a great Clog upon the Trade of the Nation, because they occasion so much Trouble and Ex- pence to the Merchants upon the importing and exporting of their Goods and Merchandize. When this salutary Scheme is put in Execution, the private Credit of the Nation will flourish more than ever; the Interest of Money will be reduced; and every Individual in the Nation will be in a thriving Condition. It is said to be settled, that Mr. Cornwall is to succeed Sir Fletcher Norton, as Speaker of the House of Commons, next Sessions. In the Course of last Week, we are assured, that a certain worthy Prelate, who does not live Far From the Banks of the Thames, became an Advocate For the two offending Dukes; and in- terceded so strongly For them with a Great Per- sonage, as to gain Permission to appoint a Time and Place For an Interview of the three Royal Brothers; from which it is supposed, that a Re- conciliation will soon take Place, which will be followed by some very material Alterations in the late Royal Marriage Act, We are well informed, that the Cause of his Majesty's cutting off his Hair was not From its growing thin, but from a Contact it had unhap- pily made with some disagreeable Creatures upon a late Expedition. Some People observe; that bad Company will produce living Signs of Disadvantage. The Barbers are now preparing an Address to his Majesty From his being graciously pleased to cut off his Hair. On Saturday India Stock was done at 150; and it is expected it will be done at 160 in a few Days, owing to the Number of People buying in upwards of 1000I. Stock, in order to qualify them to vote at the next Election. A Pawnbroker, not far from Long- Acre, has a written Note in his Window, importing that he will take Guineas wanting 2s. in Weight in Payment for any Goods bought at his Shop. It is calculated that there were not less than 600 Money- Weights and Scales in Use Yesterday in Smith field Market. A Comedy of one Act, called A Trip to Ports- mouth, written by Mr. G. A. Stevens, is now in Rehearsal at Mr. Foote's Theatre, and is in- tended for Performance next Week. On Friday the Commissioners, in a Commission of Lunacy issued against Miss D. of Piccadilly, a young Lady of great Fortune, sat at the Star and Garter Tavern, in New Bond- Street, when after the Examination of a great Number of Witnesses, and of Miss D. herself, the Jury were unani- mously of Opinion that she is of unsound Mind; and incapable of taking Care of herself and her Affairs. General F. paid his Addresses to Miss D. some Years ago, contrary to her Father's In- clination. Her Father died in 1752, and left her all his Fortune, amounting to near 2000I. a Year, upon Condition that she should not marry Ge- neral F. which, if she did, the Fortune was to be given over to another Person. The General is since married to another Lady, which has been the Cause of Miss D.' s Infanity. A few Days since two Mowers, in a Field neat Windfor Forest, cut down four Acres of Grass in an Hour and sixteen Minutes, for a Wager of 20I. which they won in performing it only one Minute within the Time. Three to One was laid against them. Saturday Evening, between Ten and Eleven o'Clock, some Thief or Thieves, singularly au- dacious, stole the Brass Knocker from the Door of Sir John Fielding, in Bow- Street, Covent- Garden. We hear that Mr. Astley, of Westminster- Bridge, has laid his Damages at Ten Thousand Pounds against Sir Joseph Mawbey ( one of the Surry Magistrates) and that he is gone to Ireland, with all his Troop of Riders, till his Trial comes on, which will not be till October. Letter from Rome, dated the 29th ult, advise, that all the Effects and Papers of the Jesuits, in their Colleges and Houses, have been seized and sealed up, throughout the Ecclesiastical State, and that they are to be all banished by the 15th of August next. The Bull for their Suppression has already appeared, and begins with the Words Soli Deo, & c. In it, among other Crimes, the Jesuits are accused of having falsified Bulls of the Sovereign Pontiffs. The said Bull will not be published in Form at the above Period, as his Holiness is for having their Effects disposed of by the Bishops, which is opposed by the Court of of them, after the Example of the Princes of the House of Bourbon. This retards the Restitution of Avignon and Benevento to the Holy See, as those Courts wait to see his Holiness fulfil all his Promises previous to their Surrender. Extract of a Letter from Zittau, in Upper Lusaitd June 26. A most violent Storm of Hail, accompanied by an excessive high Wind, on the 18th Inst. has not only destroyed all the Corn in the Country round us, but almost ruined the neighbouring Vil- lages. The Element appeared entirely green at the Time of this dreadful Calamity, and the Hail- stones were prodigious big ; in one Village 29 Houses were beaten down, several Trees were split asunder, and the general Damage done to the Farmers is incredible."

T O BE SOLD, ANECDOTE. A few Days since some Ladies being about to ink Tea at a Friend's House in the Neighbour- hood of Cain Wood, and being in Want of some dream, the Maid of the House ( newly come) being sent for some to a neighbouring Farmer, as told by him that he had none, but if she uld go to Farmer M— s d's ( pointing at the me Time to a great House) she might be sure getting some there; thither she went, and, nocking at the Door, which was opened by Lord - s d himself, the Maid, with all genuine mplicity, asked him if Farmer Mansford lived ere? Ay, ay, ( says his Lordship) I'm Farmer ansfield, what do you want with me ? Only a nnysworth of Cream, Sir, for some Ladies, is Lordship rung the Bell for the Dairy- Maid, nd ordered her to fill the Milk- pot; which done, e Maid innocently offered him the Penny, but s Lordship refused the Fee, adding that the Ladies were welcome. The Maid on her Return being questioned for staying so long, replied that e could get none at the first House, but that the aster had directed her to Farmer Mansfield's, This gave the whole Company some Concern, ell knowing that no Farmer of that Name lived ereabouts; and, to prevent the Possibility of Affront, it was thought prudent to send the Maid to make an Apology. The Girl went, was gain let in by his Lordship; to whom, falling her Knees, she sincerely asked his Pardon : His Lordship not only made her easy, but, at the me Time smiling, most politely sent his Com- liments to the Ladies, and that whenever they me into the Neighbourhood again to drink Tea, they should be welcome to have Cream at Farmer Mansfield's.

To Dr FREEMAN. SIR, For the universal Good of Mankind, that may labour under the same Disorder that I have done, do make Oath on the Holy Evangelists, That I, DAVID MURRAY of Scotland Yard, Charing Cross, ( an Officer by Com- mission in the Army) was very severely afflicted with a most inveterate Venereal Disorder, and had been under the Hands of several Gentlemen of the Faculty, endea- vouring to get cured, but to no Effect; for the longer they practised on me, the worse I grew, so that at last my Face was changed to the Colour of a Mulatto, and the Parts inflamed to an enormous Size, attended with violent Pains, & c. but by taking four small Bottles of your GUTTA SALUTARIS, it made an excessive fine Cure, and that in about six Weeks Time.

It removes Drow- siness, Sleepiness, Giddiness, and Vapours ; relieves Dimness of the Eyes, is excellent in curing recent Deafness, and has been of great Service in hysteric and paralytic Complaints, and in restoring the Me- mory whom impaired by Disorders of the Head.

To Dr. BURROWS, in the Hay- Market, London. SIR, IHad the Misfortune to labour under a scorbutic Habit from my Infancy; about 5 Years ago it broke out in my Face, Neck, and Hands, with great Violence, and so disfigured the former that it was hardly known. I applied to several of the Faculty, and having taken divers Medicines, the Humour was repelled, but soon broke out in my Legs, which became so swelled as not only to render me incapa- ble of walking, but deprived them of the human Form. As the last Resource the Bark was admini- stered to me, and soon after the Humour was re- moved to the Throat, Face, and Ears. At leng I became one general Scale, could not stand upright for upwards of two Months, insomuch that through excessive Weakness, and a total Loss of Appetite, I apprehended a Decline, and Life was rendered in- tolerably burthensome. In this deplorable Condi- tion, the Rev. Mr. Ward, in Cross Key Court, Little Britain, recommended your Medicine to me very strongly, from the good Effect it had upon his Fa- ther, who had been cured of a dangerous and viru- lent Scurvy he laboured under for upwards of 12 Years. After taking your VEGETABLE SYRUP a short Time, the Virulency of the Humour began to abate, and I was relieved from the continual burn- ing Heat all over my Body, with which I had been long afflicted; and in a few Weeks the Eruptions and Scales began to disappear, my Appetite re- turn ; I could also walk erect, and every Complaint removed, am now able to follow my Business with Pleasure and Satisfaction, and therefore thinking; myself bound to do Justice to your Medicine, desire you would make this public for the Good of Man- kind. I am, Sir, your humble Servant, MARY BOARDMAN. Cloisters, West Smithfield, Dec. 4, 1772. The Vegetable Syrup is sold at Berrow's Printing Office in Worcester, at 10s. 6d. a Bottle. Another extraordinary CURE performed by that celeb rated Preparation, Dr. SMITH'S RESTORATIVE MEDICINE. The Case of LEWIS HATFIELD, Esq. SIR, IThink I should be undeserving of the Benefit I have re- ceived, and greatly deficient in Gratitude to you, if I omitted informing you that I am recovered from a deplorable State of Body, by taking your Restorative Medicine. I laboured for many Years under a universal Relaxation and Complication of Disorders, occasioned, I am well assured, by juvenile Imprudence, for which I took innumerable Medicine, but to no Manner of Effect. Relating my unhappy Case to a Gentleman, be advised me to take your Medicine: He said a Friend of his had been cured by it ; on which I began to take it, and, by continuing some Time, am restored to perfect Health. I am, Sir, With the greatest Respect, four very obliged bumble Servant, York, March 31, 1773. LEWIS HATFIELD. In the Course of many Years Practice, innumerable Instances have indisputably proved the strengthening and cordialt Effects of this Medicine in all Weaknesses, Debili- ties, & c. whether natural or acquired by that heinous Vice Self- pollution, too early or excessive Venery, Mercurial Courses, and Nervous Complaints in general ; also those secret Infirmities that attack Persons advancing in Years are by it removed ; and the natural Powers of the whole vital System are nourished, comforted, and prolonged.
