Price Two- pence Halfpenny. Saturday's and Sunday's Posts FOREIGN AFFAIRS. from Brome, in the County of Zell, July 8. OUR Fields lately promised us a most abundant Harvest ; but we have unhappily experienced a most terrible Reverse. A Storm has destroyed all the Fruits of the Earth. No Persons here were ever before Witnesses to such Hail, both as to its Quantity and Duration. Many of the Hail- Stones were of the Size of a common Coffee - Cup, with many Points, and were prodigiously hard. The Destruction occa- sioned by this Storm is immense. Whole Vil- lages, besides the Loss of their Harvest, have had all their Fowls killed or dangerously wounded, and the Cattle of all Sorts have greatly suffered. The Linnen, which was spread in order to be whitened, was torn in Pieces, and several Per- sons, who were not able to reach Shelter, were killed, or mortally wounded. Stockholm, July 30. We have most melancholy Accounts from the Province of Dalia, of a Dy- sentery which prevails there, and carries off great Numbers. It is computed that the Number of Persons who have died in that Province last Year and this is much greater than in the Year 1709, when the Plague made such Havock in this King- dom. As the Inhabitants who remain alive there want Strength to get in their Harvest, they offer Half the Produce to those who will get it in for them. The King being informed of their Dis- tress, has ordered the Senate, during his Absence, to take the necessary Measures to stop the Pro- gress of this Distemper, and to send Physicians and Medicines to Dalia, at the Expence of the Government, in Consequence of which three Physicians have been sent to different Places in that Province. COUNTRY NEWS. Bath, Aug. 17. Saturday several Batchers in Marlborough Market had good Beef, Mutton, and Lamb, cried at 2d 1/ 2. per Pound. Lately died at East Town, in the Parish of Steeple- Aston, Wilts, Assena Newman, a Woman who in the Space of two Years had been tapped forty Times for the Dropsy, and full six Gallons of Water taken from her each Time ; but what is is most extraordinary, this Disorder did not oc- casion her Death ( as she was remarkably stout during the Course of these Operations) but her imprudently taking large Quantities of Rhubarb. Leeds, August 17. A Report prevailing amongst the Stocking Weavers, at Nottingham, that a Frame on a new Construction was making by Mr. William Taylor, Framesmith, in Chapel Bar, the Plan of which was framed by Brown, of Arnold, and would, if compleated, greatly injure the poor Manufacturers ; a small Party of them assembled, on Tuesday Afternoon, at Mr. Taylor's Shop, and were admitted by the Workmen, on paying one Penny each, to view the Frame ; their Numbers being designedly encreased, they grew riotous, and insisted the Machine should be given up ; Resistance to a superior Strength was in vain ; they carried off the Frame in Triumph, and after- wards broke it in Pieces, amidst the Acclamations of a deluded Multitude. We are credibly in- formed, that this new Frame was capable only of making coarse Yarn Stockings, of the same Kind and Value as the knitted ones made by the poor Shepherds, & c. in Yorkshire, Cumberland, the West of England, & e. and if the Machine could have been perfected, would have introduced a new Branch of Business into that Town, and employed a Number of Hands, not capable of undertaking the finer Parts of a valuable Manufactory. Oxford, Aug. 21. Last Wednesday Night, in this City and its Neighbourhood, the Weather was so tempestuous, and the Rains at the same Time so heavy, that scarce any Buildings were found to afford a sufficient Shelter ; and many People were much distressed. LONDON, Friday, Aug. 20. Wednesday a Chapter of the most antient Order of the Thistle was held at St. James's, when the Right Hon. the Earl of Northington was elected and invested with the Ensigns of the Order, in the room of the Earl of Warwick deceased. It is positively asserted, that Sir George Saville will retire from Parliament after the present Ses- sion, and that a Blue Ribbon is designed for him. The Prince of W — is not suffered to read any of the News- Papers ; however, by Chance, happening one Day last Week to lay hold of one in which was some Account of Parson B fighting with the Captain, he took Occasion to jeer the Bishop of O gh about it, saying, " You are a Bishop and should learn Parsons not to sight." The young Bishop heard this very calmly, and then replied to the Prince, " You are a General, and Admiral, I take it; why then don't you learn the Captains to sight, and then Parsons would leave it off?" The East India Company will only take up about twelve Ships into their Service this Year, which is the least that has ever been known to be taken up by them. Is is now said to be seriously thought of, to pull down, and rebuild London Bridge, the Inconve- nience arising from the Projection of the Starlings, together with the Sand Banks they have occasioned above, being too detrimental to the Navigation of Advice is received from Dublin, that the Storm which was felt so severely here the 13th Instant, was not less terrible in its Effects there, and we hear eleven Vessels were lost in the Irish Channel the same Evening. A Letter from Uxbridge, dated Aug. 16, says, " The Thunder and Lightning last Night and Saturday Morning was so violent here, that it has done a considerable deal of Damage, by throw- ing down Tops of Chimnies, and unroofing Houses. A Man and a Boy, who were at an Alehouse in Bed together, were struck dead. Far- mer Jackson, within a Mile of this Town, had one Horse, two Cows, and several Sheep struck dead, and most of the Farmers about this Place have been great Sufferers by that Tempest." A Correspondent recommends it to the Farmers when they pay their Michaelmas Rents, to insist upon their Landlord's taking their light Guineas, as it is their Fault, that the present Act has taken Place, in the absurd Form we find it. It was in their Power to prevent it: If they permitted such an Act to take Place, let them take the light Gui- neas, and get them off as they can. The Minister of a Parish in Southwark has raised the Price of searching his Register Sixpence, publishing the Bans Sixpence, and Marriages Three Shillings and Sixpence, alledging as a Rea- son, the present Dearness of Provisions. Monday Evening four Villains with blacked Faces, entered the House of Mr. Theynman, Far- mer, near Braintree, in Essex, and after binding the Farmer, his Wife, a Man, and two Maid Ser- vants, left one of them to guard while the other three went up Stairs and broke open all the Locks, carried away a great Quantity of Plate, Linnen, and Wearing Apparel, together with two Horses, on the Back of one of which they carried off their Plunder. They were in the House four Hours. A Letter from Utrecht, to a Gentleman in Dublin, gives the following Account of a most shocking Attempt of a Robbery and Murder that happened near that Town on the 14th of July last. — One Mary- Ann de Rantzaw, a Widow, who kept a small Public House adjoining to the high Road, having received 2000 Guilders by the fortunate Event of a Lottery Ticket, and re- solving to live private the rest of her Life, took down her Sign, and discontinued furnishing Tra- vellers with Entertainment of Beds. On the Evening of the above- mentioned Day, a Dutch- man, who, in the late War served as a Hussar, and had been often quartered with the Widow, came to her House and demanded a Lodging ; which she refused on Account of quitting Public Business, and keeping no Liquors for Sale. The Hussar entreated her to let him sleep any where for that Night, as he was much fatigued ; to which, with some Reluctance, she consented. About Eleven somebody knockcd at the Door, and the Hussar, who lay in the upper chamber, looked out of the Window, and saw two Men mussled in Cloaks, who desired to speak with Mrs. Rantzaw, on Business of the last Moment. The Soldier went down, and after informing his Landlady of his Suspicions, locked her up in a Closet, and getting a Brace of Pistols and a Sa- bre, with which he always travelled, opened the Door, and ran into the Kitchen before them, where he, in a determined Manner, waited for the Event. The disguised Russians followed, and seeing an armed Man prepared to receive them, instantly fired together, but without Effect, the Balls going through the Hussars Cloak and Hat. He then thought himself authorised to fire in his Turn, and taking a cock'd Pistol in each Hand, fortunately shot the Villains dead on the Spot. After recharging his Arms, and locking the Door, the Hussar and his Hostess sat up till Day, and went into the City to relate this Transaction to a Magistrate, and procure proper Witnesses to in- spect and search the Bodies, in order to an Inquest. He was directed to an Officer called the Schout, who acts in every Town as a Sub- Sheriff, but was informed that neither he nor his Bailiff were at Home, being gone out on an Expedition. The Hussar went then to the Chief Justice, before whom he made Oath of the Affair, and prevailed on his Lordship to go to the Widow's House, and hold the proper Enquiry. But what was the Sur- prize of all present, when, after washing the Faces of the Dead, they proved to be no other than the Schout himself, and his Bailiff, who came thither to rob and murder the innocent Woman on Ac- count of her Acquisition in the Lottery, of which the Report had spread. The Soldier and Widow were tried for Form Sake ; and the Bodies of the Villains who had been killed, after being hung up in the Market Place for several Hours, were burnt, and their Ashes thrown into the Canal. On Wednesday a 50l. Plate, Give and Take, was run for by Sir R. Phillips's dun Horse, Macaroni 1 1 Mr. Rumney's Darling 2 dr. Mr. Ems's bay Mare, Liberality dist.

Plate was Won in two Heats by Mr. Rumney's black Horse, Darling, beating John Hanbury, Esqr's bay Horse, Nameless. Nameless, before starting, was the Favourite; but after the first Heat Ten to One were offered Worcester, Aug. 11, 1773. LIGHT GOLD.

THE Day on which the Commission established to judge the Regicides, was to put an End to its Sittings, the King went thither at Eleven o'Clock. There were present great Numbers of persons of both Sexes. The King made so affecting speech that all the Audience shed Tears. His majesty pleaded for the Regicides, and desired no od on the Occasion. He declared a Pardon for every one concerned, not only for those who had an taken up, but likewise for those who had eitherto escaped ; adding, that he had nothing much at Heart as that the Nation should for future have an Affection for their King. His majesty before he retired, recommended to the shops to take Care that his Desires were pro- bably attended to. People are impatient to see at Effect this Discourse will produce. The following is a Translation of the Conclu- sion of the King's Speech : ' It is true that a Re- icide ought never to be pardoned; for the Fate of a whole Nation depending upon the Prince, e that makes an Attempt upon the Prince, makes an Attempt upon the whole Nation : But s this Kingdom for these six Years past has been the utmost Confusion, the supreme Au- thority was a Matter of Dispute. A Confe- eracy was formed which blindly bore Arms against their King and Father, at the same Time declaring that they were opposing a Tyrant; he Vassals forced to follow their Lords cannot be looked upon but as Subjects and Soldiers, and are therefore pardonable; but the Chiefs themselves, actuated by interested Views, de- serve the severest Punishment: However, as I myself am the Person injured, and the Accuser, insist that not one of my Subjects shall suffer for my Sake. I freely forgive them all their black Designs against me. This Pardon I grant not as a King, to shew my Power; I pardon them as a Christian ; that when I bow my Knees before the Throne of Mercy, I may be able to pay with a clear and unspotted Conscience, Forgive my Trespasses as I forgive then that tres- pass against me ! ' COUNTRY NEWS. Shrewsbury, Aug. 21. At our Assizes, which ended on Wednesday last, three Persons were ca- sually convicted and received Sentence of Death, Edward Rogers, for robbing and wounding Nevett, on the Highway; John Nichols, for taking open the House of Edward Tank ; and ward Wick, for procuring a certain Receipt 30l. forged with the Name of John Windsor, sluttering the same, knowing it to be forged, Thomas Taylor, for stealing a Watch out of House of Thomas Preece, was ordered to be transported for seven Years .— James Wright and Thomas Pitchford, for stealing Linnen Cloth out the Whitening Yards of John Crane and Wm. Hawley, were branded, and are to suffer one ar's Imprisonment. — Benj. Morris, for Man- ghter, was also burnt in the Hand .— Jane e, for stealing sundry Articles out of the house of Samuel Bishop, to be whipped at Lud- Richard Phillips, for extorting the Sum of Shillings and Six- pence, under a Pretence compromising an Offence committed against Turnpike Laws, without the Leave of any his Majesty's Courts of Justice, to stand in the ory for two Hours on Monday the 23d Instant, the open Market- time, at Much Wenlock ; he be forever hereafter disabled to pursue or Plaintiff or Informer in any Suit or Informa- tion upon any Statute popular or penal; and that forfeit the Sum of Ten Pounds, pursuant to Statute, and to remain in Gaol till he, with and sufficient Sureties, enter into two Re- nizances before one or more of his Majesty's spices of the Peace for this County, himself to bound in each Recognizance in 40l. and his eties in 20l. each, on Condition that he do personally appear at the next Assizes and General persons of Oyer and Terminer to be holden for County, to answer to two Indictments found inst him at this Assizes for similar Crimes . abeth Higgs, charged with poisoning Edward ning, Esq; after a Trial which lasted near nine rs, was acquitted ; as were also Tho. Key, samuel Thomas, Wm. Bevan, Mary Noonan, Pearson, and Richard Williams. Hadge Nares was pleased to reprieve Nichols, despite Wick, and to order Rogers to be exe- cuted next Saturday. Hewent, Glocestershire, Aug. 21. Within a few days past we have had here some Speculators in bewdley, who have been round to most of the formers to engage them in Contract for the Whole their Crop. As they are enterprising Geniuses, may not be improper to give them a Caution there is an Act of Parliament ( 5 and 6 Edw. Ch. xiv 3.) which lays a Penalty of the due so contracted for, and two Months Impri- sonment ; and according to this Act Prosecution immeditating against them, if they proceed in their Business. The Farmers too it is hoped will give the Prosit of their Labour to these Gen- ral but wait for the Market Price themselves. LONDON. Monday. Aug. 23. The Conduct of the Bostonians in their Dispute Governor Hutchinson has given great Of- fence at St. James's, and has occasioned some very old Orders to be dispatched from thence. The Distress occasioned in Ireland by the Gold Act is inconceivable. The Linnen Manu- factures were before languishing through a Scar- of Money, and this Act seems to have given the last Blow. The People are so incensed, Government Security has no Credit among Some of the State Business was actually at stand for some Weeks for Want of Money, and L. L t was at length forced into the de- spirate Measure of rasing a few Thousands on his private Fortune. A Circumstance so dis- A Correspondent remarks, that the Minister has forced four sinecure Judges upon the East- India Company, whose Salaries amount hearly to One per Cent, upon their Capital, and at a Time when they have been forced to reduce their Dividend, and borrow a Million and a Half to supply their present Exigences. It is said that upwards of 30,000 Soldiers have been inlisted in this Kingdom for the East India Company's Service, since the Commencement of the last War ; which is an extraordinary Drain of laborious Hands, and a real Loss to the Nation, when it is considered that scarce one in four hun- dred ever returns Home. We are informed that the yearly Balance of Trade with the Kingdom of Portugal is com- puted to have lessened near 300,0001. within the last twelve Years. By a Gentleman arrived this Week from Copen- hagen we are credibly informed, that there are at present upwards of Five Hundred British Ma- facturers, of different Kinds, in the Kingdom of Denmark, where great Encouragement is also given to Workmen in the Linnen, Thread, and Stocking Manufactures, front Glasgow, and other trading Towns in Scotland. Queen Matilda's Health is said to be so very much on the Decline, that Nature refuses the Nourishment it requires ; and her Physicians have given their Opinions, that unless she changes the Climate before the Winter sets in, she cannot re- cover ; in Consequence of this, her Royal Brother has renewed his Invitation for her coming to Eng- land, which it is supposed, her Majesty has ac- cepted, and will be here by the Beginning of September. A Gentleman who arrived last Wednesday from Turin, gives an Account that the King of Sardi- nia has augmented his Army to 100,000 Men, all well trained to Arms, which he intends to keep as an Army of Observation to watch the Motions of the King of Prussia ; he further says, that ac- cording to all Appearance, and the Preparations that he saw making in Italy, and those Parts of Germany he passed through, it cannot be long before a War will break out amongst those Powers, as the King of Prussia is looked upon with a jea- lous Eye on Account of his seizing on Part of the Dominions of the King of Poland. The following Paragraph is inserted in the Edinburgh Advertiser, which arrived this Day : — " By a Gentleman who arrived here on Sunday from Spain, we have the following Intelligence : That an Order came down from Madrid to Cadiz on the 5th ult. for the Ships that are ready, to fail immediately for South America ; a Galleon that arrived at Cadiz on the 28th of June having brought Advice, that the Chilesians, after taking Baldivia, had been joined by great Numbers of Indians from Peru, and Tribes lying East of Cor- delerians des Andes, and had directed their March for the City Imperial, which they took after a stout Resistance made by the Spaniards, put all to the Sword, and after pillaging the City, set it on Fire They then directed their Course, for St. Jago in South Lat. 34. and West Long. 37. the Capital of the Spaniards in Chili, the Governor of which was preparing to meet them ; he has sent Advice with the above Galleon, that if he does not receive timely Succours from Old Spain, he will be unable to withstand the Attacks of these Barbarians." The Process against the Jesuits at Rome goes on at length without Intermission. The Cardinal Legate went, according to the last Letters, to the House of the Jesuits at Ferrara ; and having assembled all the Members, shewed to them the Pope's Brief, which commissioned him to deal with them very cavalierly. He first visited the College Library, which he sealed up; from thence he passed to each of the Rooms, sealed each ; finally, to the Church. Their Archives, Treasures, Effects, & c. were all sealed in the like Manner, and every Thing was transacted with the greatest Severity. During the whole Time the House was surrounded with Troops, so that every Thing was done under the Point of the Musquet. From this House they proceeded to the Society's Colleges at Bagnacavalla and Catignole. His Holiness has also ordered the Bishop of Tivoli to deprive the Jesuits of that Place of their Func- tions, particularly from receiving Confessions, on Pain of Ecclesiastic Chastisement. The King of Portugal has just issued an Edict, whereby all Widows, turned of fifty Years of Age, are restrained from marrying again, because ( says this Edict) Experience proves that Women of that Age commonly marry young Men of no Property, who dissipate the Fortunes which such Marriages put them in Possession of, to the Pre- judice of the Children or other near Relations of their Wives. An express Advice was sent here from Vienna, that the Court of France had disgraced and insul- ted that of England by her Intrigues against her at the Porte, and that the British Am — r there wanted Sense to require Redress. It is a Fact, however, that our Ministry have resolved —— to take no Notice of these Things. The Emperor of Morocco demanded of our Court the Assistance of several Engineers and War- like Stores for his intended new Works, which has been refused. Should a War take Place between us and Spain, it is very likely the Supply of Pro- visions to Gibraltar will be stopt, which will be of very fatal Consequence to us. We are assured, that a fine Horse belonging to a Nobleman, well known on the Turf, on whose Running considerable Betts lately depended, was poisoned a few Days since near Newmarket. The Circumstance was detected by a Suspicion arising of the Groom, who attended the poor Animal, which being opened after it's Death, a Quantity of Mercurius Sublimatus was found in it's Stomach. By a Gentleman arrived last Night from Cam- bridge, we have the most shocking Account of the Damages sustained by the late Rain At a Place called Barkway, about 16 Miles on this Side Cam- bridge, the Wavers were so much out that the Stage Coach floated, and was near six Hours be- bitants about that Place were obliged to have Re- course to their Chambers, as their Houses were seven Feet deep in Water. A considerable Quan- tity of Houshold Furniture was driven to a very great Distance from them. At Enfield Wash the Coach with great Difficulty, for upwards of a Mile, was saved from being driven away. The Damages to the Farmers thereabouts are said to be incredible. A few Days past a Publican in Wapping pro- cured a Silver Oar from the Water Bailiff to arrest a Sailor on board the Neptune. When the Pub- lican went on board at Gravesend to execute the Writ, the Sailor ran up into the Maintop, and re- mained there until the Ship got under weigh, and the Publican failed with them as far as the Hope, where they came to an Anchor till the next Tide, when a Fishing Smack coming past, the Landlord gave them a Guinea to drop alongside and take him in without his Prize. As the Barnet Stage was returning to London on Wednesday Night, the Weight of the Passen- gers within and on the Outside was so great, that it broke down at Holloway, and was dashed into a great Number of Pieces. Almost all the Pas- sengers are wounded, and one Man had his Ear struck off, and his Face shockingly torn. A few Days since died one Strongford, a Penny Barber in Old- Street, who had followed that Pro- fession upwards of 40 Years. On searching his Apartment, Money and Securities were found to the Amount of 1100l. Friday a Country Gentleman, who had paid 70l. at the Bank, and received seven 1ol. Bank Notes, as he was coming out had his Pocket picked of them all, by four Sharpers who have been observed lurking about for some Time. By a Gentleman just arrived from Dublin, we are informed that there is now living in that City one Patrick Meriton, a Shoemaker, who is 114 Years of Age: He has been married to eleven Wives, the last of which is now living, and is in the 78th Year of her Age.

A frigate of 4oGuns, called the Dogado, WHEREAS I, Richard Dandy the Elder, of Stock and Bradley, in the County of Worcester, Labourer, have unjustly, and with- out any real Cause, aspersed and vilisied the Cha- racter of Mr. John Carpenter, of Park- Hall, in the Parish of Hanbury, in the said County of Wor- cester, in charging him with having stole from me an Oak Board, my Property ;" for which the said Mr. Carpenter hath very justly ordered an Action to be commenced against me, but on my promising never to offend again in like Manner, asking his Pardon in the Worcester Journal, and paying all Expences, hath, out of his great Lenity, stopped all Proceedings against me : Now do hereby ask the said Mr. Carpenter's Pardon, and acknowledge what I so said as aforesaid was false and untrue, and do hereby also promise never to offend again in like Manner, and desire this may be inserted in the Worcester journal; as Witness my Hand this 21st of August, 1773, The Mark of RICHARD DANDY the Elder.

After many repeated Applications from great Numbers of the Nobility and Gentry, who have experienced the Efficacy of the Medicine for the CURE of the BITE of a MAD DOG, pre- pared by William Hill, Esq; of Ormskirk, in Lan- cashire, he has now consented, for the Good of the Public, to entrust the same to his Nephews, Mr. William Hill, and Mr. James Kerry, Apothecary, and two Gallies of 20 Oars of a Side, all belonging to this Republic, have just arrived here with three Tunisian Chebeques, which were taken in the following Manner: The Dogado and the Gallies were some Time since dispatched from hence to Naples, with the Count de la Chioggia on board, who was appointed Ambassador from the Republic to his Neapolitan Majesty, to execute a new Treaty of Commerce and Alliance, which is now on the Tapis between the two Powers. They had landed the Count and his Train at Na- ples, and were on their Return Home through the Gulph of Medina, when a hard Gale of Wind came on, which much endangered all the Vessels, especially the Gallies; but at last they got safe through, the Frigate being much a head, having doubled Cape spartiveno above four Leagues; the Wind then much abated and moved about to the East. Soon after the Abatement of the Storm, the Frigate lay somewhat a - back for the Gallies, when the Noise of Guns was heard firing very briskly, and presently the Gallies came in Sight, being chased by the three Chebeques. The Gal- lies rowed very swiftly towards the Frigate, who taking the Advantage of a Wind, soon came up with them. The Chebeques, on the Sight of the Frigate attempted to escape, but in vain ; after an obstinate Resistance, in which most of their Crews were killed or wounded, they were all three taken ; the Frigates and Gallies having fine Weather af- terwards arrived here on the 10th Instant, with their Prizes, whose Cargoes are estimated at 13o, 000 Chequins, being composed of several Kinds of rich Merchandize, doubtless taken out of many Christian Vessels they had robbed. Hamburgh, Aug, 13. Letters from good Hands received here from the Danube assure, that the Russian Army was in so bad a Condition, after having repaired the Danube, that in all Probabi- lity it will not be able to continue its intended Operations for this Campaign. COUNTRY NEWS. Chester, Aug. 24. Last Tuesday George Fea- ther, and William and James Hollingsdrake ( from Yorkshire) were taken up for selling counterfeit Guineas to several Silversmiths in Liverpool, un- der the Denomination of Light Gold; and on Wednesday, after being examined before our Magistrates, they were committed to Lancaster Gaol. LONDON, Tuesday, Aug. 24. It is asserted, that the much- talked of Addition of 200,0001. to the Appointment of a great Per sonage, will be solicited early in the next Session of Parliament. One Thousand Pounds per Annum, are, it is said, to be added to the Appointment of the new Governor of Jamaica. The whole Revenue of the Civil Officers that are to go out to India, together with that of their several Dependents, have been calculated by an Though a Reconciliation has not taken Place between a great Personage and his two Brothers, on the Report of the Duke of Gloucester's going Abroad, the K. sent to him a very wholesome Message, desiring that, though he could not see him, he would not take a Step that might, in all Probability, prevent his ever having that Satis- faction. The King has done Wonders this Year: Re- viewed his Army, his Navy, and his Coin ! The Lord Mayor intends in a few Days to go the City Barge with some other Gentlemen down the River to Rochester, and the River Med- way, and as far as his Lordsliip's Jurisdiction extends, to take a Survey, and see what En- croachments have been made since a former Lord Mayor, Brass Crosby, Esq; paid a Visit to those Parts. It is reported that General Paoli has very re- cently refused the most flattering Offers from the Empress of Russia. By a Letter from Copenhagen to a Gentleman at Edinburgh, dated July 23, we are informed, that a Russian Fleet of eleven Ships is stationed off Bornholm, a few Miles above Copenhagen, with a Design, it is said, to watch the Motions of the Swedes, on account of their present warlike Preparations, and private Connivance with the French. The Letter adds, that the Danish Fleet is returned from the East Seas, where it has been for some Time on a Cruize, and now lies at that Port ready for Action on the shortest Notice. On Friday last a young Girl, Servant at a Public- House in Holborn, having taken some- thing to procure an Abortion, it took the con- trary Effect, and she died on Sunday raving mad. Saturday Night as two Gentlemen were walking in Fleet- Street, they could not help admiring the Dexterity of two young Pick- pockets who went on just before them, disencumbering the Pockets of several Macaronies of their shewy Handkerchiefs with a most surprising Adroitness; but searching for their own a little afterwards, they found these nimble Mercuries had played them the same Trick ; whereupon they pursued them, but the young Rogues proved, that Prac- tice had rendered their Heels as light as their Fingers, Friday Night as a Number of Persons, who had been making merry in the Country, were re- turning Home over Blackfriars Bridge, one of the Company, to evade the Toll, determined to walk on the Outside; he accordingly made the Attempt, but when he came to the Middle of the first Arch his Foot slipped, and the Water being low he sell upon the Bed of the River, whereby his Thigh was broke, his Skull fractured, and he was other- wise so much bruised that his Life is despaired of. On Saturday Morning early three Persons were overheard singing and talking together in an odd Strain as they passed through Fleet- Street, the Watchmen informed some of the Peace Officers belonging to the Lord Mayor, who were at Hand, and after a Struggle they apprehended the Men ; on searching them a Hanger, some Pistols, seve- ral Picklocks, and a Flint and Steel were found ; they were examined before the Lord Mayor on Saturday Noon, when they appeared to be fran- cis Talbot, one Peal, and a Fellow named Colby, all Gentlemen whose Faces are perfectly fami- liar in Bow- Street. The first mentioned is a very notorious Offender, he has been tried at the Old Bailey several Times on Charges of Burglary, and the last Time, or the last Time but one, would have been capitally convicted of a Burglary, in Moorfields, had not the principal Evidence ( a Constable who took him) been a Quaker, and therefore could not be sworn. There is now In- formation on Oath against him for being con- cerned in the Burglary committed at Mr. Ewer's, in Lincoln's- Inn- Fields. Bank Stock, —. India ditto, 152 1/ 2. South Sea ditto, —.

At our Assizes ( which did not finish till Eight o'Clock last Night the five following Persons J ones, fo r stealing a Gelding the Property Mr. Nott, of Stockton ; John Jeenes, for entering the Dwelling House of Mr. Harris, of Evesham and stealing out of a Chest a Sum of Monty to the Amount of 1091. 12s.; Edward Butcher, for stealing Sheep and Lambs, the Property of Mr. Brewer, of Bishop's Froome; and Thomas Carey for stealing a Mare the Property of Mr. Haddock, of Ribbesford. The Trial of Kidson ( who is to be executed To- morrow, near the Spot where the Murder was committed, and afterwards hung in Chains) lasted near six Hours, in the Course of which above thirty Evidences appeared against him, and such a Multitude of strong, corrobo- rating Circumstances arose, that not the least Doubt could remain of his being guilty of the Murder; though he positively denied the Fact when called to make his Defence, and seemed not at all affected when Sentence of Death was passed upon him ; and even when he was measured Yesterday in the Afternoon for his Irons, he stood with the utmost Composure. llad this despe rate, inhuman Wretch escaped, many People in Stourbridge, and that Neighbourhood, would have been under the most terrible Apprehensions he having thrown out many severe Threats and Menaces against those who were instrumental in bringing him to Justice. The four following were ordered for Trans portation, the three first for seven Years, and the other for fourteen Years, viz. Edward Taylor for stealing some Shirts the Property of Mr. Gib- bins, of Powick ; Richard Hewson, for stealing, in the Night- time, a Kettle, from out of a Court of the Dwelling House of Mr. Brooke, of Strens- ham ; Sarah Gardner, for stealing from out of the House of Mrs. Roden, of Stourport, some Pewter and other Things; and John Broad, for receiving the Things stolen by the said Sarah Gardner, knowing them to have been stolen. John Boorn, for marrying Elizabeth Bawn, a the same Time his lawful Wife was living, was burnt in the Hand, and is to be imprisoned six one Month. — William Wild and Robert Hoare, for destroying the Fences of certain inclosed Lands, were likewise burnt in the Hand, and are to be imprisoned for three Months. — Two Persons were found guilty of Manslaughter, on of them in killing his Wife on a sudden Qua- rrel, and was burnt in the Hand, and is to be imprisoned twelve Months; the other for acci- dentally killing a Servant Lad, for which he was likewise burnt in the Hand, and is to be imprisoned for three Months. — The rest of th- e Prisoners were either acquitted or discharged by Proclamation. Mr. John Groves, who was removed from Warwick in order to take his Trial at this A- ssizes, on a Suspicion of Diminishing the Coin of this Realm, was honourably acquired, without being arraigned at the Bar, the Bill which was preferred against him not being a true one, n respectable Evidence appearing to support such Bill. Had the Bill been found a true one Numbers of very reputable Persons would have appeared to the general good Character of M Groves. The Governors of our Infirmary return the Thanks for a Benefaction of One Guinea, re ceived from Thomas Byrche Savage, Esq; of Elmley Castle ( being Money received by the Gentleman for serving on a special Jury at the Assizes, and which he has always used on the lie Occasion to give to the Use of this Charity.) That great Genius and worthy Nobleman Lord Lytekon, we are assured, lies dangerous ill at his Seat at Hagley, in this County. .\ On Tuesday the 17th Instant died, after very short Illness, at Mellington, in Montgomer shire, Mrs. Thomson, Wife to Dr. Thomson Physician in this City. Yesterday in the Afternoon, a Carpenter this City was found dead, near Tallow Hill having shot himself in the Throat with a Gul which was found lying between his Legs, and in his Hand was a Stick, with which it is su- pposed he touched the Trigger. On Saturday last James Duckworth, who was convicted at last Warwick Assizes, for seloniously Clipping and Diminishing the current Coin this Realm, was executed at Warwick, pursual to his Sentence.

In the PUB L I C LEDGER, HUMPHRY MINIONET arraigns the Virtue of modern Females at follows : " COMPLAINTS every Quarter are daily made of " the Luxury the Ages" it is a melancholy Truth that our eets, our intriguing Houses, and our Stews do ample Testimony to the debauched Prosligacy the People ; but to what, and to whom are we esly indebted for this Train of national Evils ? Brown, I think, advances it as a Fact, " that Manners of the Men are not only influenced, formed upon those of the Women." If Ladies chaste, modest, virtuous, and polite, the Men be honourable, brave, and abound in noble ntiments. It is not my Inclination to censure my fair countrywomen; but as it is generally supposed at the Men are solely culpable when Women err hust beg Leave to enter a Protest against this Ac- tion. The real Fact is, that the Ladies have ned the Tables upon us, and because we formerly e the Seducers of those amiable Creatures, in ght of Mother Eve, they have usurped upon our athority, and in this Age it is not the Men but e Women who are most expert in the Art of Auction. " If any Person doubts the Truth of this Asser- , let him visit the different Milleners Shops broughout the Metropolis ; there he will see young dies of all Complexions, and of all Ages, arranged scording to the Delicacy of their Features ; the lost beautiful always nearest the Window. Why this Management ? What Sort of Custom is it signed to gain ? The pretty Oglers, I am afraid, would not choose to answer this Question without such : They ( pardon, my pretty Band- Box Wo- u, the Severity of the Thought) relish an agree- able Tete- a- Tete far better than the Tambour- frame. short, I look upon Milleners Shops as the Hot- uses of Gallantry, wherein the blooming Shrubs happily nourished until, arriving at Maturity, as proper to transplant them into Beds ready their Reception within the Precincts of the rden." In the MORNING CHRONICLE, R. Figg gives an humorous Account of his Wife's strangue on the Gold Coin Act......... " I was last ght ( says he) very carefully weighing some Gui- neas, the common Employment of all Mankind at present, and my Wife was knotting me a green k Purse to put them in, when she exclaimed all a sudden, Oh! Mr. Figg, I smell a Rat.- - I ell a Rat in this same Money Act. Lord bless , says she, I wonder you Men don't see the Act be a Snare-- a mere Tub to a Whale— or an Ar- ce to divert the public Attention from political atters..... Was there ever so supine a Summer so ar a General Election ? Here is no Bustle, no ife, no Canvassing, no Nothing at all. --- Why the Minister has found every body something to do, and is himself weighing up the Counties, ies, and Boroughs of this Kingdom. He will most certainly get another Parliament to his Mind, then the East and West Indies, and all the world, will be at his Nod ; he will bestride this nar- World, & c. like a Colossus. Oh that I could write as quick as I can talk, Mr. Figg, I would blish such alarming Alarms to the Nation, as should ght ' em from their Money Scales to Things of re Importance,..... Where is Wilkes? where is wbridge ? where is Sir Joseph ? & c. & c. & c. the priots.--- Alas! alas! all but the first ( who hath Need of Scales till he becomes Lord Mayor) are ghing of Money, I suppose; and so our Liber our excellent Constitution, and our Country, be lost or sold, for the mere Difference between good and bad Guinea.--- Oh, what a Scheme! the finished Gold called in at a low Price, that a sure Profit may accrue ! By next Spring a Glut glittering new Guineas will be in the Treasury, thence will be issued to tempt the poor Voters, lose money'd Persons, who have suffered by cut- up their Gold, will be gaping for all Sorts of Histerial Douceurs in the Election Trade, to take them Amends ; and so the Act to prevent the minution of the Coin, will prove an Act to hasten Diminution of our Liberties, which than Gold a thousand Times more valuable. Oh, Mr. Figg, by your Scales, and go to the Coffee- house; a Moment should be lost in exploring the Wiles the Minister, and counteracting him. Thus far at Mrs. Figg ( almost) without taking Breath, as, indeed, about my usual Time of going to detton's; so I took my Hat and Cane, and pro- posed to impart her Discovery to the Sages there. d so.

Piguenit in Berkley- Square; and by all other Booksellers in Town and Country; likewise by the Newsmen, who will serve the Numbers regu- larly at the Houses of the Subscribcrs. THE PUBLISHER TO THE PUBLIC. An Edition of the BIBLE, printed upon a large Let- ter, in a small or portable Size, has long been much wanted, and hitherto enquired after in vain. A Book so desirable, therefore, cannot but prove very acceptable to the Public, as having the principal Merits ( without the Inconvenience) of both the large and dmall Editions; the firdt being liable to Objection on Account of its Size, and as not coming : within the Purchase of many Headers, and thelastfor being printed on such an exceeding small Type, as not only to be hurtful to the Eyes of Youth, but impossible to be read by Persons advanced in Years. To obviale these Inconveniencies is one of the Motives for making an Offer of the Work in Question; and, to render it in all Respects valuable, the Notes will he ju- dicious and useful; contrary to the Generality of Anno- tations, which are either absurd and tedious upon Parts that require no Comment, or serve to establish Pre- con- ceptions, singular, Opinions, and human Doctrines, ra- ther than to elucidate the sacred Text. The Engravings will be executed in a masterly Manner: In fine, the Pub- lisher with Considence can effert, that an Edition of the Bible so handsome and so convenient, was never before thought of on such advantageous Terms to the Public. Indeed, the peculiar Excellence of the Print alone ( with- out the explanatory Notes and Copper- plates) is a suf- ficient Authority to justify the Remark; he therefore hopes that the same Approbation and Success will attend the Work, as seldom fails to accompany such laudable Under- takings. A WORK ENTIRELY NEW ON A PLAN NEVER BEFORE ATTEMPTED, This Day is published, Price only 6d. NUMBER I. to be continued weekly, ( Adorned with a beautiful Frontispiece, finely engraved from an original Drawning of the ingenious Mr. Wale, by a capital Artist, the Whole to be compleated in 30 Numbers only, or the Overplus to be given gratis, every Number to be enriched with an elegant Copper Plate, finely engraved from the original Drawings if Wale, by the most capital English Artists, particularly Grignion, Walker, Rennoldson, and Taylor) Of THE CHRISTIAN'S DICTIONARY ; or Sure Guide to Divine Knowledge. Containing a full and familiar Explanation of all the Words made Use of in the Holy Scriptures, and Body of Divinity, as set forth in the Writings of the most eminent and pious Divines, whether an- tient or modern. Wherein all the various Terms, Phrases, Titles, and Allusions, are traced from their Originals; the several Acceptations in which they are held are clearly pointed out in such a Manner as will enable the serious Christian to give an Account of the Faith that is in him, and render him wile unto Salvation. The Whole calculated to promote the Interests of Religion and Virtue, by conveying Knowledge even to the most Ignorant, rectifying the Errors that too many are apt to run into, and representing real Religion in its native Colours, as taught in the sacred Volume of Inspiration, and applied to the Faith and Duty of every sincere Believer. To which will be added a brief Explication of all the Proper Names found in Scripture, including the Senses where in they were used by the Jews, as every one of them are significant of some remark- able Transaction or providential Event.

AT a Time when there are so many Dictionaries of Languages, of Surgery, of Physic, of Garden- ing, of Husbandry, of Geography, of Law, of Mathematics, and of almost every other Art and Science, the Want of such a Publication as a Christian's Dictionary has been much lamented by many pious Christians; in older therefore to supply that Defect, the Author has undertaken this Work, unawed by the many Difficulties which have, per- haps, prevented others from an Attempt of the like Nature.

IThink I should be undeserving of the Benefit I have received, 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 Restoration Medicine. I laboured for manyYears 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 begin to take it, and, by continuing some Time, am restored to perfect Health, I am, Sir, With the greatest Respect, your very obliged humble Servant, York, March 31, 1773. LEWIS HATFIELD. In the Course of many Years Practise, innumerable lnstances have indisputably proved the strengthening and cordial Effects ot this Medicine in all Weaknesses, Debili- ties & c. whether natural or acquired by that heinous Vice Self- pollution, too early or excessive Venety, Mercurial Courses, and Nervous Complaints in general; also those secret Infirmities that attack Persons advancing, in Yean are by it removed ; and the natural Powers of the whole vital System are nourished, comforted, and prolonged. The Causes of Impotency in one Sex, and Barrenness in the other, have been eradicated by this Medicine. The great BOERHAAVE says, From an ill- cured Pox, and imprudent Venery, arise Pains in the Head or Limbs, Eruptions, Gleett, Weakness of the whole Frame, Dimness of Sight, with a Tribe of Nervous Complaints, which generally terminate In a Consumption."

MA RE D A N T's DROPS. To Mr- Norton, Surgeon, Golden- square, London. SIR, IAm cured, by the Use of your Maredant's Drops, of a most assisting Disorder, of the scorbutic Kind, after trying every Medicine that could he thought of for my Relief, in vain. My Case was as follows: I first had small Pimples come out on my Head, Face, Hands, and Legs, in a little Time after, my Face and Handy were covered with large Blotches, which discharged a Kind of watery Humour, attended with excessive Itching : I was in this Situation till about January, 1766, when I was recommended by a Gentleman, who was cured, by the Use of your Drops, of an inveterate dry Scurvy all over his Body. I am. now in perfect Health, and am continually praying for the Welfare of the Author of so valuable a Medicine. In Justice to you, and for the Good of Mankind, I give you Leave to make what Use you please of this. I am, with great Esteem, Sir, Your most obedient humble Servant, CHARLES COOK. Cook- Street, Liverpool, May 14, 1773. Any Person still doubtful of the Efficacy of this Medicine, may ( by applying to Mr. NORTON , Surgeon, the West Side of Golden- square, near Piccadilly, London, the only Author and Proprietor, where these Drops are sold in Bottles of Six Shillings each) be fully convinced of their good Effect, by being referred to many People of Credit, who have been cured of the Leprosy, Scury, Ulcers, the Evil. FISTULAS, Piles, long continued Inflammations of the Eyes, and every other Disorder arising from a Foulness in the Blood, They may be taken in any Season, without the least Inconvenience or Hindrance of Business. They also perfect Digestion, and amazingly create an Appetite. N B None are genuine but what are signed by JOHN NORTON, in his own Hand- writing ; who hath APPOINTED him to be sold by H.
