IT may be depended on, notwith- standing what has been recently said to the contrary, that the Court of Great Britain has posi- tively declared off having any Thing t0 do in settling Disputes between the Turks and Russians, although the Grand Signior is now about to so- licit the Favour. This may seem a Mystery to many ; however, what follows may unravel it: The Empress, on hearing that our Sovereign was to be applied to by the Porte to bring about a Reconciliation, immediately informed him what Terms she would accommodate Matters upon ; which were thought at St. James's very unreason- able, and such as his Majesty could not with any Degree of Justice, desire the Grand Signior to accept of; therefore concluded, and rightly too, to have no Concern with this Business. By a Gentleman arrived from Osnaburgh we are informed, that the Inhabitants of Hanover were apprehensive of a Visit from the King of Prussia, and had sent an Express to the Court of London, intimating their Fears. A Scheme for the better Regulation of the Commerce between Great Britain and the Colo- nies is now before the Board of Trade, and will be laid before Parliament. Extract of a Later from Constantinople, Aug. 1. " The disagreeable Intelligence has just ar- rived here of the Russians having again possessed themselves of the Town of Asoph, at the Mouth of the River Don, in the following Manner: The Empress of Russia had a Squadron of Men of War and Frigates in the Palus Maeotus, or the Sea of Asoph, which Squadron landed their Men in several Parts, and committed great Depreda- tions, which induced the Sublime Porte to send a Fleet into that Sea, in order to put a Stop to such Proceedings. This Fleet consisted of a large Number of Gallies, with two fifty- gun Ships, and Three Frigates, who arrived in the Palus Maeotus, sell in several Times With the Russians, and engaged with various Success. At last the Russian Commander formed a Design of landing his Men to take the Town of Asoph ; which be- ing known to the Turks, they prepared to oppose it, in Consequence of which a general Battle en- sued. The Turks had manifestly the Advantage in Point of Situation, as they were within the Russian Fleet, and fought in a Manner under the Cannon of Asoph, but the Russians having the Advantage of a Wind, drove in with the Turk- ish Gallies, who were a- head, and caused much Consusion; however, one of the Men of War and two of the Frigates coming up, gave the Gallies some Relief, and maintained the Fight with great Obstinacy, but at last the superior Weight of the Russian Metal prevailed, six of the Gallies were funk, and one of the Frigates taken ; the two Men of War, the two Frigates and the rest of the Gallies made their Escape out to Sea, whither the Russians did not think pro- per to follow them. The Russian Commander immediately failed into the River, and landing his Men a little above Asoph, on the Eastern Side of the River, took Possession of that important Place with little Resinance. The Divan was directly Called together when this Intelligence arrived, and the Result of the Conference is, to endea- vour at all Events the retaking of Asoph." We are informed by good Authority ( contrary to the Opinion, of several eminent Assayers, who thought it not practicable) that Mr. Spilsbury, of London, by a Series of Experiments, has disco- vered a very great Improvement in the Assaying Gold, which is to make a Gold Assay in about twenty Minutes, with Accuracy; whereas the common Process now in Practice at Goldsmith's Hall, and other Places, is attended with great Expence, and takes three Hours to perform the Operation, and must wait a Day for the Report. This must certainly be of great Advantage to People who go Abroad, and to private Traders, who may make their own Assays, when this Me-- thod is communicated to the Public. Sir John Fielding on Wednesday informed the Bench, that he had last Year wrote to Mr. Gar- rick concerning the Impropriety of performing the Beggar's Opera ; a Performance which he decla- red, he believed, from its vicious Tendency, was seldom acted without making a Thief; he begged therefore, the Gentlemen present would join with him in requesting Mr. Garrick would desist from performing that Opera To- morrow Evening. The Bench immediately consented to the Proposal; and a public Card was dispatched to Mr. Garrick for that Purpose. We are informed; that a Great Personage now allows a Pension of 5ool. a Year, out of his own privy Purse, to the Widow of a Gentleman who formerly had a lucrative Place under the Govern-- ment ; but being obliged to live up to his Rank, left not sufficient to support his Widow and 12 Children, all now living. Wednesday the Sessions ended at the Old Bailey, when six Prisoners were convicted to be trans- ported, viz. Wm. Davis for stealing Cloth, Joseph Butler for stealing Iron, Francis Norris for steal- ing four Quartern Loaves, Mary Hussey and F. Hogg for stealing three Sugar Loaves, and Alex. Dunning for stealing about a Pound and a Half of Sugar off the Keys. At this Session 15 Prisoners were capitally con- A more particular Account of the Trial of Major General GANSEL. Tuesday Morning, about Half past Eight o'Clock, William Gansel, Esq; was brought to the Bar of Justice Hall, in the Old Bailey, and charged on three different Indictments, before Mr. Justice Nares, with maliciously and wilfully shooting at John Hyde, William Felthouse, and some other Bailiss's Followers, contrary to the Statute, & c. to which the Prisoner pleaded Not Guilty. It appeared that a Writ had been issued against General Gansel, at the Suit of Samuel Lee, Sur- geon, for the Sum of 134l. but that the Warrant given to John Hyde, the Bailiss, had been sealed previous to its being signed, which gave Occasion to a long Altercation between the Council for the Prosecution and Prisoner, as it was thought a fundamental Error. The Point of Law arising from that Circumstance, however, was agreed to be postponed, and the first Witness, John Hyde, was called, who deposed to the following Purport : That on the 26th of August last, he went with proper Assistants to the General's Lodgings, at Mr. Mayo's, in Craven- Street ; that the Street Door was open, on which he went up Stairs, knocked at the Door of the two Pair forward ( where he heard the Prisoner was) which was fastened, and on a Voice- asking him his Business, Hyde answered, he wanted Mr. Mayo. He was answered from within, that was not Mayo's Apart- ment, but that he lived on the Ground Floor ; on this Hyde went down to the Plaintiff Lee, who was in the Parlour, and beckoned to his Men, who were waiting in the Street ; that on going up again to the General's Room, on the Landing Place he was met by two of the General's Ser- vants, one of whom had a Knife in his Hand, with which he opposed Hyde's Passage, swearing he would kill any one that attempted to go up Stairs ; that Lee, with a Stick, knocked the Knife out of the Lad's Hand, and sent him down Stairs to be taken Care of by the other Assistants ; that the Evidence then saw the General on the landing Place of the sécond Floor, and taking the Paper out of his Pocket, told him he had a Warrant against him at the Suit of Lee, for 134l. on which the General said, " Damn ye ! have ye?" and en- deavoured to enter the Room and shut the Door ; that Hyde pursued him so closely, that he got his Foot and Knee between the Door and the Side of the Post where it locked, and prevented the Ge- neral's Intention, who stood with his Back against the Door, and fired a Pistol with his Right Hand through the Pannel, which passed close by the Head of the Evidence ; that Hyde said, " for God's Sake don't fire at naked Men, who are in the Execution of their Office." On which the General replied, " he had Half a Dozen more Pistols, and would fire them all, for he would not be taken." About this Time Hyde swore he touched Gansel on the Shoulder, who soon after discharged a sécond Shot with his Left Handover his Right Shoulder at the Evidence's Face, but he bobbing his Head, it hit Felthouse's Hat, and lodged in the Door- Post ; that then the General reached at another Pistol which lay in a Chair, but Hyde rushing in got it out of his Hand, on which he was brought down Stairs, and conveyed in a Coach to Armstrong the Bailiss's House. Hyde denied he or his Assistants had any offensive Weapons through the Whole of this Transaction. Thomas Hyde, Brother to the above Witness, corroborated the Story of John, as to the General's Back being to the Door when he fired ; said the Bailiss's had no Arms of any Sort, but had five People, beside Lee the Plaintiff, to seize the Ge- neral, who he said was a terrible Man, though they were under no Apprehensions from him. Henry Felthouse told partly the same Story as the two former, but swore Gansel's Face was to the Door when he fired, and contradicted the Evi- dence of the Hydes in some other Particulars'. William Sly and Richard Reeves, the two other Followers, also contradicted the Tenor of the for- mer Evidences, and all denied having Fire- Arms of any Kind. Mrs. Mayo deposed, the Gang of Catchpoles came to her House on the 25th of August, about Two of the Clock; that they seemed all in a Tremble, and took a Double- barrelled Pistol which lay in her Parlour up Stairs with them ; that she heard two Pistols fired, but did not know by whom. The Evidence for the Prosecution being gone through, the General requested Leave to read his Defence, which Contained a plain, affecting Nar- rative of his Case. He said he had been long un- happily embarrassed in his Circumstances, but that he little expected such a Proceeding from Lee, whom he had amply paid ; that he should prove by his Evidences, he hoped, he was by no Means guilty of the Charge ; that he never came out of his Room, nor saw a Warrant in Hyde's Hand, for if he had, as he never meant to oppose the Course of Justice, he should not have fired his first Pistol ; but that he had road in Blackstone's Commentaries, an Englishman's House, nay his Room was his Castle ; that he had lived thirty- eight Years in the Place where he was attacked, and that his Apartments were only connected with Mayo's House, by a common Entry, and he had a distinct Property in the Habitation ; that the most cruel Means had been taken to oppress him and exaggerate his Offence in the News- Papers, & c. that he ran down with the Knife in his Hand, and finding who they were, returned and told the General, who bid his Brother James lock the Door, which he heard him do ; that he was met by Hyde on the Stairs, whom he never threatened, as he was directly knocked down ; that they pushed him into the Yard, and bolted him out ; but getting over some Rails, he came into the House and ran up Stairs, where he saw the Officers about his Master's Door, which was closely shut, when both Pistols were fired ; that they then broke open the Door, and took away the General, and he saw the Box of the Lock broke off directly after, and the Bolts shot out. James Ashfield's Testimony agreed principally with his Brother's, and he declared, when he went down Stairs, the General bid him take Notice he locked the Door, which he heard his Master do. Mr. Vickars gave a very good Reason to the Court for believing the Door was shut when the first Pistol was fired, as the Mark on the Wall, made by the Ball, was in a straight Line with the Orifice in the Pannel. Mrs. Sanders saw the Hole in the Door Post, made by the second Ball, and conjectured the Door must have been shut at that Time, as the Edge of it was burnt by the Powder, and when shut, formed a Sort of Circle. Mrs. Mayo corroborated the Evidence of the Lock being broke, and some other Witnesses not only strengthened the Credibility of Vickars and Sanders's Depositions, but mentioned several Cir- cumstances which tended to evince the Door was fastened when the Pistols were fired. Mr. Justice Nares soon after proceeded to sum up the Evidence, which he did in a very judicious and impartial Manner; and the Jury, without going out of Court, in a short Space of Time found the Prisoner NOT GUILTY; which Verdict was received with a general Plaudit by the Auditors ; and Mr. Gansel, after declaring he had, trusting to the good Ground he stood upon, only brought two General Officers to his Character, made a low Bow and retired from the Bar. The above Trial, which was of the utmost Im- portance to the Subjects of this Kingdom, lasted from Half past Eight in the Morning till past Five in the Evening. COUNTRY NEWS. Shrewsbury, Sept. 18.

Bristol, Sept. 2. At our Assizes came on a ial in which Mr. David Lewis, a considerable atter and Corn Factor, in this City, was Plain- , and John Thomas, of the County of Carmar- n, Defendant. The Defendant had last Summer to the Plaintiff's Agent at Carmarthen two sks of Butter, which, when opened at Bristol, eared, except about four Inches at Top, to be ease, Curds, big Salt, & c. and the Smell of it y offensive. The Evidence proved the Fraud the Satisfaction of the whole Court, especially Mrs. Jones, who had bought the Butter.- jeant Davy, Council for the Plaintiff, opened Cause: He observed to the Jury the Custom bringing Butter to Carmarthen Market to sell, pointed out the Manner in which the Cask having on the Top of the Cask very good matter, the Woman tasted a Bit with her Nail, proved of it, and gave him the bell Market ce; but when the Butter came to Bristol, the Bristol Men, who, says the Serjeant, art as cun- g as Foxes, not satisfied with a good outward appearance, thrust the Borer down to the Bot- tles of the Cask, and, says he, out comes the order ( addressing himself to the Jury) and had or Noses been near it, you never would have ed Welsh Butter any more. — After a little m Debate on both Sides, the Plaintiff ob- served a Verdict, with 3l. 5s.

Friday Morning their Royal Highnesses the ce and Dutchess of Cumberland, the Hon. Luttrell, the Hon. James Luttrell, Gen Pro- Col. Deaken, Col.

However serious the Irish may be in their Ex- ecutions of an Union with this Country, they says a Correspondent, most seriously re- d to oppose its taking Place to the last Mo- of their Strength and Capacity. Plan has been offered to Administration for effectual preventing the Emigration of the in- ous Poor of Ireland, which lies at present be- the Privy Council. He is a strong Reproach to our present Minister offer English Artisans, Handicrafts, and Ma- nufacturers, to be publickly employed at foreign rts, while those who remain in this Country s publickly starving for Want of Employment. The Act for the better regulating the Assize of which is just published, sets forth, that Whereas, according to the ancient Order and om of this Realm, there hath been, from Time memorial, a Standard Wheaten Bread, made our, being the whole Produce of the Wheat eof it was made : And whereas by an Act, d in the Thirty- first Year of the Reign of rge the Second, intituled, ' An Act for the making of Bread, and to regulate the Price Assize thereof, and to punish Persons who adulterate Meal, Flour, or Bread ;' and by Act passed in the Third Year of the Reign of Present Majesty, for explaining and amending Said recited Act, Two Sorts of Bread, made Wheat, only are allowed to be made for Sale ; is to say) Wheaten and Household ; whereby Flour, being the whole Produce of the Wheat, divided in the making of Bread for Sale, as this Standard Wheaten Bread, made accord- o the ancient Order and Custom of this Realm d be no longer made for Sale: And whereas House hold Bread, such as is intended by the said of George the Second to be made for Sale, is continued, many Inconveniences have arisen, and many of the inferior Classes of the People more especially, have been under a Necessity of buying Bread at a higher Price than they could afford, to their great Hurt and Detriment: For Remedy thereof, it is enacted, That from and after the 29th of September; One Thousand Seven Hun- dred and Seventy- three, a Bread made of Wheat, as followeth ; that is to say, Of the Flour of Wheat, which Flour, without any Mixture or Division, shall be the whole Produce of the Grain, the Bran or Hull thereof only excepted, and which shall weigh Three- fourth Parts of the Weight of the Wheat whereof it shall be made, may be at all Times, and is hereby allowed to be made, baked, exposed to or for Sale, and sold, and shall be called and understood to be a Standard Wheaten Bread. " Provided always, That the Makers of the said Bread for Sale do and shall make every Loaf thereof with the Capital Letters S W, and that the Makers and Sellers of the same do make and sell the same, although no Assize of Bread be set, of the Weight, and in the Proportions following; that is to say, That every Standard Wheaten Peck Loaf shall always weigh seventeen Pounds six Ounces Avoirdupois, every Half Peck Loaf eight Pounds eleven Ounces, and every Quartern Loaf four Pounds five Ounces and one Half Ounce Avoirdupois; and that every Peck Loaf, Half Peck Lo, af, and Quartern Loaf, shall always be sold as to Price, in Proportion to each other re- spectively ; and that where Wheaten and House- hold Bread, made as the Law now directs, shall be sold at the same Time, together with this Stan- dard Wheaten. Bread, they be sold in Respect of and in Proportion to each other as followeth ; that is to say, That the same Weight of Wheaten Bread as costs Eight- pence, the same Weight of this Standard Wheaten Bread shall cost Seven- pence, and the same Weight of Household Bread shall cost Six- pence, or seven Standard Wheaten assized Loaves shall weigh equal to eight Wheaten assized Loaves, or to six Household Loaves of the same Price, as near as may be. " Provided also, That the said Standard Wheaten Bread be not, nor shall be made into, or exposed to or for Sale, or sold as priced Loaves, at one and the fame Time, together with assized Loaves of the same Standard Wheaten Bread." Wheat has been sold at Reading Market on the two last Saturdays, between 40s. and 50s. per Load under the Price usually given at this Time of the Year. Information was last Week given before the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, against upwards of thirty Persons for coining Halfpence, and last Friday four of them were apprehended. Many People having doubted whether General Gansel can be legally kept in Custody, after his Acquitment at the Old Bailey, it is necessary to inform them that, although the Manner of ar- resting the General was illegal, yet, as he has been actually in Custody of a Sheriff's Officer, if he is suffered to go at large, the Sheriffs, to all Intents and Purposes, would be fixed with the Debt. The General has his Remedy by Law against the Bailiff for any illegal Conduct in the Execution of the Process. Letters received from Copenhagen this Week, give us great Reason to believe that his Danish Majesty is verging fast On the Confines of Eter- nity: Though he eats as usual, he visibly emaci- ates, and is supposed by his Physicians to be in a thorough Waste of Nature. As to his Memory, he has failed in it before, as well as since, the late unhappy Revolution ; but now he remembers hardly any one Thing, and seldom has a good Night's Rest. Extract of a Letter from a Gentleman at Algiers. " An Affair has lately happened here which no Doubt will be attended with bad Conse- quences : — A French Snow came into our Har- bour : Upon her Arrival the Officers went on board and informed the Captain, the Custom of the Port was for him either to send his Sails or Rudder on Shore until the Duties of his Cargo were paid ( which are Ten per Cent, on what the Goods sell for:) The Captain refused to send either, and behaved rather insolent. On Notice being sent to the Dey, he seized the Vessel, and made the Crew Prisoners." A very melancholy Accident happened last Monday at Easthanger, in Suffex .— A poor Wo- man, leaving a young Child in a Cradle while she went for some Milk to a neighbouring Farmer's, a strange Cat got in at the Sink- hole, and sucked the Breath of the Child : As soon as the Woman entered the House, the Cat ran away from the Cradle, but though the poor Woman immediately alarmed her Neighbours, and used every Method in her Power to recover her Infant, her Endea- vours were without Effect. On Thursday Evening a Man was stopped in Piccadilly offering to Sale a Hat, which proved to be the Property of the Farmer who was found early on Thursday Morning, near the Hampshire Hog at Hammersmith, robbed and murdered: He was carried before Sir John Fielding, who committed him to Prison. It is said he impeached two Ac- complices, after whom strict Search is making. Saturday Morning, between Four and Five o'clock, some Villains attempted to break into the House of Mr. Corte, Wire- drawer, in Foster- Lane; they had opened the Kitchen Window which looks into a Court, and one of them had got in, but was immediately seized by a large Dog, who tore him in such a Manner that he was taken and sent to the Hospital; his Compa- nions escaped. Friday Morning, at Four o'Clock, a terrible Fire broke out at Mr. Pincher's, an Apothecary, in Charles- Street, Hatton- Garden, which en- tirely consumed the same.. The King's Head Inn, belonging to Mr. Oliver, and the Stabling, were greatly damaged. Mr. Pincher, his Wife, and Servant Maid, besides several Persons who lodged in the House, were obliged to jump out of their several Windows, some into Blankets, others upon Straw, and some were caught in Arms.

SOME private Letters re- ceived here from War- saw, assure us, that the Russian Army has retired as far as Jassy, Where it waits the Arrival of the Troops that were can-- toned in Poland, and which are actually on their March to reinforce it. The same Letters say, that the great Loss that Army had sustained in the several Re- en- counters it had with the Turks, and also by the Want of Provisions and Forage, and the forced Marches that have harrassed the Cavalry, which is in a very bad Condition, becomes daily more obvious. They add, that the Success of the Tartars and Turks in Crimea is not less conspi- cuous; that notwithstanding these glorious Ad- vantages, the Porte continued inclined to Peace, and shews a Willingness to listen to fresh Propo- sals to obtain so desirable a Blessing. Vienna, Sept. 4. It is said, among other Things, that the Ministry are labouring at new Proposi- tions of Peace between Russia and the Ottoman Porte, and that a third Congress will soon be opened. The 31st of last Month the Court received from Rome the Pope's Brief which suppresses the Order of Jesuits, who, it is said, having long foreseen their Fate, had lately negociated a Loan of Two Millions of Florins of the Empire, on the Estates they possessed in this Country. SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, Sept. 21. We hear from Strathspey, that the poor People in Badenoch and Lochaber are in a most pitiful Situation for Want of Meal. They are reduced to live on Blood, which they draw from their Cattle by repeated Bleedings.— Need we wonder to hear of Emigrations from such a Country; LONDON, Tuesday, Sept. 21. We hear, and we hope from good Authority, that the Miseries of our neighbour Kingdom are at length likely to be attended to, and that a Tax upon the Landed Estates of the absent Gen- tlemen of Ireland will soon take Place, it being found impossible to carry on Government in that Country without laying fresh Taxes upon the People, and that it would be the most stagrant lnjustice to think of leading the Poor with greater Men of that Kingdom, who residing Abroad, have raised their Rents even beyond the Limits of what the Land can possibly bear, are those only who feel none of the Calamities that these People suffer.— We wish the above Account to be true ; but we fear there is too much Justice in the Scheme, and too much Virtue in the idea, for the Temper of the present Times. Notwithstanding the Endeavours of the new Association of Noblemen and Gentry in the North of Ireland, for letting their Lands at a more mo- derate Value, and the Discouragement of Mono- polizers, the previous Emigration has been so great in that Part, that many Parcels of Land cannot be lett, even under this Encouragement ; and, notwithstanding the Reputation Lord Hills- borough justly merits, as a Landlord, he has about 2000 Acres at present unlett. Lord North, we are assured, has now under Consideration another Bill for the Regulation of the East- India Company. Unanimity, it is said, has taken Place in the Cabinet. The Cause is this : The great Court Faction having carried every Thing before them, whether right or wrong, the rest are tired of op- posing them, and so have given up Opposition. It appears that Lord North strains every Point of State Business in such a Manner as to coincide with the favourite Doctrine he delivered some Time ago in the House of Commons, viz. That he would ensure Peace to the Nation for ten Years. The Ardour with which several Persons have already began to canvass in some of the more distant Counties, had given rise to a Report that the General Election will take Place next Spring ; but it is now confidently asserted that the above Event will not happen before the Year 1775. The Carcass Bomb Ketch, commanded by Capt. Lutwich, which, together with the Sea- Horse Bomb Ketch, commanded by Capt. Phipps, went at the End of the Spring in Search of Disco- veries into the Polar Region, particularly to make astronomical Observations under the Northern Pole, and to discover a Northern Passage into the South Sea, or East- Indies, is arrived on the Eng- lish Coast, and has landed a Pacquet at Yarmouth to the Lords of the Admiralty, containing, among other Advices, a Journal of their Voyage. It there appears, that they have miscarried in their Design, from the great Impediments and Danger that occurred from the floating Ice in the Northern Sea, in consequence of which, the Voyagers have not been able to get nearer the Pole than 81 Deg. 39 Min. They were several Times so embayed in the Ice, as to find their Situation almost despe- rate, and were happy to get safe back into the open Sea, after having made the strongest Efforts, with the utmost Risque, to perform their Undertaking. They have not; however, sustained any consider- able Loss, the Crews of both Vessels being in perfect Health, owing most probably to the extra- ordinary Precautions taken in that Respect. The Carcass parted from the Sea- Horse about ten Days ago, and it is presumed she may by this Time have reached the Mouth of the River, though no Advice had been obtained from her on Sunday last. Yesterday the Earl Ferrers arrived at Deptford in his Yacht, from a Cruize of about three Weeks, which he took in order to make a Trial of his new Method of constructing Ships; and we are in- formed by a Person who has conversed with the Officers belonging to her, that nothing that ever was built answered all Purposes so well ; as they say, she is not only a surprizing fast Sailer, but also carries her Sail remarkably well, and has every other good Quality that a Vessel can possibly have, in the utmost Perfection, and more parti- cularly in a large head Sea. What, says our Cor- respondent, is very extraordinary in this Vessel is, that in turning up to the Windward from the Downs to Blackwall ( where she arrived on Sunday Evening) she beat every Vessel between three and four Miles an Hour, right in the Wind's Eye, though there were at least 100 Sail of Vessels of different Sorts, coming up the River at the same Time; and what is still more extraordinary, though the Wind, all this Time, blew very fresh, and right down the River, yet, on Saturday Even- ing, she turned up, from about two Miles to the Westward of the Isle of Sheepey to the Mouth of the River Thames, within four Hours, against the ebb Tide ( though at the Height of the Springs) which, it is imagined, was never done before, nor can be done by any other Vessel. Yesterday Morning his Majesty, attended by Gen. Harvey, went on Horseback from Kew to Woolwich, to see the Experiment of Firing a Can- non of a new lnvantion, which was discharged 24 Times in a Minute, and gave great Satisfaction to his Majesty and all present. On Friday last were lodged in the Bank 30,000 Dollars, brought from Jamaica by the Guada- loupe Man of War. This Sum, it seems, is in Part of the 20, oool. Prize Money alluded to by Lord North at the Opening the Budget of last Sessions of Parliament, and which has been due from the Estates of the late Edward Manning and George Papley, Esquires, ever since the Year 1756. When a certain young Nobleman was informed of the late unexpected Death of his Father, by a Gentleman who went Express to Paris with the News, he burst out into a Flood of Tears, and thus remained for some Time ; at length his Grief found vent by his Words, when he said, " The whole Business of my Life shall be to imitate him who was the Honour of Mankind, as well as the most indulgent of Fathers." We are happy to hear that the present Lord Lyttelton is discarding his own Acquaintance, and engaging those of his late worthy Father. It appears ( supposed to be owing to the Fre- quency of Bankruptcy) that there is a Decrease in the entering List of 700 Carriages since last Year. We are exceedingly happy to find that an active Magistrate has a Scheme in Embryo, for the Prevention of Transports returning from Transportation, and for the Change of Punish- ment for those convicted in such a Manner as subjects them to seven Years Transportation. provide such a Punishment as shall answer the End of the Legislature more fully than Trans- portation, and yet not be attended with Half the Ills which daily- Experience teaches us arise from Transportation. When Sir John Fielding sent to Mr. Garrick, to desire him, in the Name of the whole Bench of Justices, to suppress the Beggars Opera, which they were of Opinion had done a great deal of Mischief among the lower Classes of People, Mr. Garrick returned Sir John for Answer, that his Company was so imperfect and divided ( many of the Performers being yet in the Country) that it would be exceedingly inconvenient, if hot im- possible, for him to open with any other Piece than that he had already advertised, but added, that he would in future do every Thing in his Power to oblige them. On Thursday Morning a Soldier was taken up as a Deserter and carried to the Savoy ; he was afterwards carried before Sir John Fielding. On his begging to be admitted a King's Evidence, he was examined, and confessed being concerned in a Murder at Hammersmith the preceding Evening, and wanted to charge some Persons as Accom- plices, but as yet it appears that he alone knocked the Farmer off his Horse and robbed him. The poor Man was killed by the Blow, which violently met his Skull behind the Ear. The Soldier is proved to have offered the Farmer's Hat to Sale, and had his Stick in his Possession when he was first taken. Sunday Night the Purser of the Marquis of Rockingham East Indiaman, Capt. Hamilton, Came to the India House with an Account of that Ship being safe arrived in the Downs from Bom- bay ; the Purser landed at Deal ; the Ship failed on her Voyage from the Downs the 9th of March, 1772. The Mail which arrived on Sunday from Hol- land, contains the following Article, dated Berlin, Sept. 7.— " While the King was at Breslau his Majesty received of the Pope his Bull of Suppres- sion of the Jesuits, and immediately sent for the Father, Rector of the Convent of Breslau, and told him that the Jesuits in his Dominions need not be alarmed at that Bull as long as they be- haved themselves with Decency and Tranquility. His Majesty added, that he would take them un- der his Royal Protection, and in consequence of which they might appoint a Superior General to represent to him whatever might be useful for their Society." When the last Advices left Dantzick, the Ma- gistrates of that City were preparing a Guild, in order, as it was said, to sign an Instrument for chusing his Prussian Majesty Protector of that City. The Reason our Ministry give for not requiring Satisfaction of the King of Prussia for seizing their Timber, is curious. They say, that his Prus- sian Majesty has been long endeavouring to draw them into a War, in order to act as a Free- booter, and probably lay hold on Hanover; but they ( they say) are resolved to frustrate his De- signs; and, let him do what he will, he shall not decoy them into Hostilities. The French Court have concluded a Subsidy Treaty with the Court of Denmark and Republic of Genoa, for five Years. By Letters from Genoa we are informed, that the Chief of the Malecontents in Corfica had been taken by Surprize, and that he was treated with the utmost Humanity by the French, who were preparing to send him to Paris. Extract of a Letter from Toulon, Aug. 22. " All the mighty Preparations which have been so long making here, and so long the Talk of Europe, are now entirely over; the Ships which have been fitted out, are for the most Part unrigged and laid up, the Seamen and Workmen are discharged, and the Troops who arrived here for Embarkation, are ordered back to their for- mer Quarters. This Change was very sudden, but it is thought entirely to have arose from the spirited Representations of the British Ministry, who would not accept of the equivocal Answers of France, but insisted on knowing the Intent of fitting out such an Armament, or to have it im- mediately laid by, the latter of which has been chosen." On Saturday last Captain Roberts, who is appointed by the Board of Trade to execute a Commission for settling a very valuable Branch of Commerce with some Indian Tribes in North America, embarked on board the Essex, Captain Saunders, for Quebec ; he carries with him a Quantity of Trinkets, to distribute among the Chiefs. On Sunday the 22d of August last, an Inha- babitant of Doctors Commons, who was a Can- didate at the last Election for the Office of Com- mon Councilman for a certain Ward, South of St. Paul's, buried his Wife, and on the 29th of the same Month, and the two following Sundays, was publicly asked in the same Church where he had buried his first Wife ; and on Sunday last was married at the said Church to a young Lady of 22 Years of Age. He is 72 Years old. Early Yesterday Morning a Fire broke out at the Vulture Public- House, in Princes Row, South- wark, which burnt the same to the Ground. The Mistress and the Maid Servant perished in the Flames. An anonymous Correspondent informs us, that a Person just arrived from Calais told him, that Hawke the Highwayman, who made his Escape from Tothill- fields Bridewell, is now at that Place, and resides at the City of London Tavern, where he cuts a splendid Appearance. Friday Morning a private Man belonging to the 68th Regiment of Foot, quartered in Norwich, who was to have received a Flagellation, in order to evade the Punishment, cut his Throat in the Guard House. A daily Paper says, that on Friday last a young Fellow, Son of Mr. M B , near West- minster Bridge, was committed to the Gate- house for committing a Rape on his own Sister, and afterwards strangling her. A Gardener in the Neighbourhood of Gosport, ley ; every Grain produced 22 Stalks; and every Ear had 72 Grains in it. On Thursday Evening died, at his Seat at Langley Park in Norfolk, in the 49th Year of his Age, Sir William Beauchamp Proctor, Bart and Knight of the Bath. This Gentleman had served in three Parliaments for the County of Middlesex . — The Title descends to his eldest Son now Sir Thomas Beauchamp Proctor, a Youth of Seventeen, at Harrow School. Anedote of the King of Prussia. — When his Prussian Majesty took Possession of Prague, he was surveying one of the principal Cathedrals, at tended by one of the most dignified Ecclesiastics ; and perceiving the twelve Apostles In rich Gold Habits, he asked the Priest what was the Value of the Gilding; " Sire ( replied the Priest) they are solid Gold." " Gold ! ( answered his Ma- jesty) then the Apostles are put to a wrong Use for it was intended by their Master that they should travel all over the Face of the Earth so public Good, and behold in your Church they are all confined ; therefore, to fulfil their Mas- ter's Orders; I will have them immediately made into Ducats; that they may travel over the Face of the Earth."

Bloomsbury- Square, London. A. P. Thelast Speech, Confession, and Dying Words of a Queen ANN'S GUINEA, who was tried and condemned on the late Act of Parliament, for being too light, and was executed, by the unmerciful Hands of a Butcher, the 16th of September, 1773. Worthy Spectators, AS it is customary for Persons in my unhappy Circumstances to make some Confession, and some Account of themselves, therefore, as I am about to suffer so shameful and ignominious a eath, I can have no Motive to declare a Falsity ; therefore you may depend on the Veracity of what now say. I do here m0st solemnly declare that am entirely innocent of the Crimes laid to my charge, and that I never was unlawfully diminished filing, clipping, or any other Means, and that y Lightness came merely by Wear ; I do not say lawful Wear; for, as I understand that Gaming is t lawful in this Kingdom, and ss most of my Year has proceeded from that, I omit the Word wful. I was coined in the Year 1705, being the third of the Reign of Queen Ann; I was directly ued into the Treasury, and from thence to pay the ary of one of the Lords of the Bedchamber. I further declare that I was coined of as good Gold any that ever were before or since, and which worst Enemies cannot deny, and I am so still. t when you consider impartially how often I have been shuffled, hussled, and tossed about at Inning, by Dukes, Earls, Lords and Ladies, of Ranks and Ages; that however just Sir Isaac Newton's Calculation may be, I declare that I have more of my Weight by being so shuffled and bbed about, than his whole Allowance of a Far- ing a Year. And when you further consider how often I have been shifted and counted backward and forward at Bank and Treasury Office, & c. how often I have been carried about loose in Gentlemens' Poc- among Silver, & c. how often I have been ed and rubbed by them when riding; and now late among the Farmers and Graziers, & c. who, ce the exorbitant and extortionate Price of Pio- make no more of me than they used to of a Shilling: And, indeed, the Generality of am have got more of my Fellows than they used have of Shillings. Likewise, how often and by many Merchants, Shopkeepers, & c. I have In counted. I have been told and re- told by In- rable Hands of all Sorts that I have passed , where I have met with good and bad Usage : I never met with such good Usage as when advanced to get into a poor Man's Hands, for he generally wrapped me in a Piece of Paper, and took Care of me, that I never suffered the least Di- lution in his Custody. But since the Dearness of visions I have seldom had the Happiness to come their Hands; and I never had so long a Rest as I once was locked up in a Miser's Chest for Years, never being disturbed but twice a Year, en he took it in his Head to have the Pleasure of nting us, and which was the greatest Pleasure never had : And here I found that I got more ar by circulating one Month, and doing univer- GOOD, than Thousands of my Fellows, who had dormant in the Miser's Chest for thirty Years, who may escape my severe and unjust Fate, by ing the Fortune to be hoarded up, and do less d than I. And now that I have made this Confession, permit to shew you this Picture, and give you my Ad- . Behold in me the Mutability, Uncertainty, Vanity of all worldly Grandeur, Greatness, and ever. I, whose Body was composed of the most Beautiful and precious Substance that this World Words, and received the greatest Name and Title this Country ever bestowed, even to a bye word, for the usual Appellation to distinguish any ng fine and good, is " Nothing can beat it but a Queen ANN'S GUINEA.'' who have been the Companion of Kings, ces, Dukes, Lords, & c. and who have thought themselves honoured by possessing me; I, whose ever was so great, that the Power of the greatest erors and Monarchs is extended or contracted ring to the greater or less Quantity of me have: It is I who assemble mighty Armies, give them Spirit and Courage to fight, and Fleets to ride triumphant on the Seas : It is I give Motion to the Tongue of the Lawyer and ne, and causeth the Physician to exert his Skill : who have caused the Heart of the most cruel into melt and yield to the Embraces of the Lover, the case- hardened Breast of the Gaoler and Cautioner to dissolve in Pity:— who rejoiced the t of the Poor,-- and diffused Happiness where- Power, despised, contemned, and unable to help myself. Think of this, ye Great! ye Rich, and Proud! for your Fate is as uncertain as mine; and all Ranks of ye ( depend upon it) will be weighed in the strictest Balance of Justice by the Almighty ; and, if found deficient, will be cut in Pieces by his Power and Wrath: And, Spectators, my Advice to remedy, as much as possible, the present Confu- sion amongst you, respecting the Coin, is to make no Objection, except to that which is visibly bad. [ When he had finished these Words, the Butcher laid him upon the Block, and at one Blow, with his mighty Cleaver, severed him in two, to the great Sorrow and Loss of the Owner.] A LETTER from the learned, ingenious, and Rev. Mr. RIDER, Sur- Master of St. Paul's School, to the Rev. Mr. BARLOW, Author of The Complete English Dictionary. REVEREND SIR, ALL the English Dictionaries which have pre- ceded your's have, as your Proposals assert, been either too voluminous or too concise. The former renders the Work too expensive for those who are in most Need of Instruction, and are in- capable of procuring it, for Want of the Pockets of Opulence; the latter renders Improvement im- possible on Account of both Obsurity and Defect. I must felicitate you on having taken the middle Way; and I am not ashamed to say, that your Work, though not so voluminous as others of the same Kind, is, with Respect to Utility, more gene- ral; you have omitted nothing useful; you have inserted nothing useless. Your Etymoligies are the best I have seen; your Definitions are more precise than any I can remember. The Addition you have made, with Respect to Biography and Geography, are entirely new, in a Work of this Kind. If you succeed, you deserve it, and you have not only my best Wishes for Success, but my Offers of assisting you in any Department wherein you may imagine a Person who has spent his Life in Researches of this Kind, can be of Service to the Public. I am, Rev. Sir, St. Paul's School, Sincerely your Friend, London, June 12, 1773. W. RIDER. An ENTIRE NEW WORK, on an extensive Plan.

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 torender 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 length 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 to 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. lam, Sir, your humble Servant, MARY BOARDMAN.

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 order 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. Another extraordinary CURE performed by that celebrated Preparation, Dr. SMITH'S RESTORATIVE MEDICINE. The Case of LEWIS HATFIELD, Esq, SI R, IThink I should be undeserving of the Benefit I have re- ceived. and greatly deficient in Gratitude to you, if 1 omitted informing you that I am recovered from a deplorable State of Body, by taking your Restorative Medicine. I laboured from many Years under a universal Relaxation and Complication of Disorders, occasioned, 1 am well assured, by juvenile Imprudences, for which I took innumerable Medicines, 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, your very obliged humble Servant, York, March 31, 1773. LEWIS HATFIELD. In the Course of many Years Practice, innumerable Instances have indisputably proved the strengthening and cordial 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. 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 Paint in the Head or Limbs. Eruptions, Gleets, Weakness of the whole Frame. Dimness of Sight, with a Tribe of Nervous Complaints, which generally terminate in a Consumption. For a full Account read the Doctor's New Treatise, just published, Price 1s. 6d. the 8th Edition. The RESTORATIVE is to be had in Bottles at 10s. 6d, with full Directions, of H. Berrow, Printer of this Paper, in Worcester ; and of the Doctor, in George- street, York- buildings, in the Strand, London, who may be consulted personally, or by Letter, Post paid. MAREDANT's DROPS. To Mr. NORTON, Surgeon, in Golden Square, London. SIR, J IHave, for above six Years, laboured under a most dread- ful Pain in my Stomach, a Lowness of Spirits, and the Scurvy, attended with a most severe Pain in my Head, which made me weary of Life, having tried many of the Faculty to no Purpose. Hearing of the many extraordinary Cures by your Maredant's Drops, it induced me by them ; after taking them some Time, I am, thank God, restored to my perfect Health. I desire you will publish this most extraordinary Cure for the Benefit of Mankind. Long- Lane, Southwark, I am, Sir, May 21, 1773. Your most obedient humble Servant, EDWARD MARQURE. 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 Sex Shillings each) be fully convinced of their good Effect, be being referred to many People of Credit, who have been cured of the Leprosy, Scurvy, Ulcers, the Evil, Fistulas, Piles, long continued Inflammations of the Eyes, and every other Disorder arising from a Foolness in the Blood. They may be taken in any Season, without the least Inconvenience or Hindrance of Business. They also perfect Digestion, and at amazingly create an Appetite. N. B. None are genuine but what are signed by J . NORTON, in his own Hand- writing ; who hath appointing them to be sold by H. BERROW, at his Printing Office, near the Cross, Worcester ; and by Mr. ANDREWS, Bookseller, in Evesham. Mr. NORTON having lately discovered that his Bot- tles, Bills of Direction, together with his Hand- Writing, have been counterseited, in order to impose on the Public a spurious Medicine for his ( Maredant's) Drops, be therefore hopes, their, Health's Sake, they will be extremely cautious of where they buy them. Beware of Counterseits Maredant's Drop's, so univer- sally known and esteemed, were never sold for less than SIX SHILLINGS the Bottle.
