Price Two- pence Halfpenny. THURSDAY, October 7, 1773. Numb. 4139. Saturday's and Sunday's Posts. LONDON, Friday, October 1. A SUMMARY of the Proceedings at Guildhall on Wednesday, relativetothe Election of Lord Mayor. AT about a Quarter past One o'Clock, the Lord Mayor, with the Sheriffs Elect, the Aldermen Stephenson, Halifax, Crosby, Wilkes, Sawbridge, Oliver, Bull, Lewes, Thomas and Plo- mer, ascended the Hustings. The Business of the Day was opened in a Speech by the Recorder to the following Purport; Gentlemen of the Livery, " It is incumbent upon the Duty of my Office to explain the Occasion for which you are as- sembled. The Period is now approached, when by Virtue of the Powers vested in you by the Con- stitution of the City, you are called upon to no- minate a proper Successor to the present worthy Lord Mayor. The Importance, Gentlemen, of the Office, I need not attempt to explain ; you are well apprised, that upon a due Execution of the Trust reposed on the Object of your Choice, de- pends the Safety of your persons, and the Security of your Properties. But, Gentlemen, there is also another very important End gained ; the truly respectable Figure the City of London hath lately made ; the noble Efforts she hath exerted in Fa- vour of General Liberty, have all been owing to the Rectitude of her Magistrates, and may all be ascribed to their inflexible Attachment to the Cause of Freedom. I need, not, Gentlemen, go far back for Instances of the Truth, of this Assertion ; the Marble Statue now before my Eyes calls to Mind an illustrious Example of the inflexible Virtue of the Magistrate, the Dignity of the Senator, and the amiable Excellence of the Man. An Intimation of this Kind is sure sufficient; you will exercise your Judgment with Caution ; your Choice with Circumspection ; you will act like Men attentive to the Welfare and Happiness of the Community at large ; and thus the Corporation of London will be signalized for its Efforts to secure the pre- sent, and hand down entire to future Ages, the in- estimable Blessings resulting from Constitutional Liberty." The Recorder having finished his Address, Mr. Sawbridge advanced, and spoke in Substance as follows: Gentlemen of the Livery, " It has been predicted of me in the publick Papers that I should stand Candidate for the Of- fice of Mayor, in order to divide the Livery, and thus treacherously elevate a Ministerial Alderman to the Chair. It has been predicted of me, that I should decline a Poll, and thus frustrate the kind Intention of my Friends. It has been predicted of me, that I should delay soliciting your Suffrages until next Year, the better to avail myself at the General Election.— Neither of these Predictions happen to be founded on Truth. With Respect to my public Conduct, whether it be deserving of Praise or Reprehension is a Question that you, Gentlemen, are to decide. I will abide by the Decision of my Constituents, nor have I Reason to dread the severed Scrutiny of my Enemies. Gratitude from Individuals I never expected ; the Public cannot be ungrateful; they delight in ap- plauding, and most generously accept a Rectitude of Intention in Lieu of those actual Services which it is not always in the Power of their Servants, however well disposed, to perform. " I flatter myself, Gentlemen, that my Inten- tions hitherto have been honest; I have always considered, and do now consider myself as the Ser- vant of my Constituents; your Views in honouring me with your Favours I will to the utmost of my Power endeavour to answer ; command, and I will implicitly obey ; for having no paltry Ambition to gratify ; no selfish Schemes to accomplish; you may dispose of me just as you think proper. By co- operating with your Designs, and acting in Subserviency to your Wishes, 1 am certain of the only Reward to which I aspire - your Approbation. But should there be a Man, who, jealous of the Merits of others, and diabolically wishing to de- preciate the Honest in the Estimation of the Wor- thy, employs his whole Time in traducing the Characters of your Servants; should such a Man be found, who but must lament so great a Perver- sion of Talents ? Who but must despise the Party capable of Actions so soul ; Prostitution so base ; and Degeneracy so unmanly ? However, Gentle- - men, neither Letters nor Paragraphs; neither the mistaken Zeal of Friends, nor the Censure of Foes; nothing shall ever deter me from serving the Pub- lic with Honesty and Integrity ; as I wish to live but for the Public Weal, 1 sincerely desire to live no longer than I can be serviceable in promoting the Happiness of the Community, of which I will labour to render myself a useful Member." Sir Watkin Lewis then, in a short Speech, " la- mented the Disunion which prevailed amongst the Friends of Freedom ; assured the Livery that no Efforts had on his Side been wanting to heal the Divisions ; but as he found Attempts ineffectual, despairing of Success, he had given over all Thoughts of ever accomplishing the much- wished for Reconciliation.'' He added, " that he had devoted himself to the Service of the Public, and on that Account had received much ill Usage from certain Individuals : He, however, assured the Li- very, that this, so far from dismaying, animated and paid his Wilkes came for- " that his Enemies should soon have a Proof that he could act as well as speak decisively " After Sir Watkin had finished Obeisance to the Livery, Mr. ward ; when Silence being announced, he spoke to the following Purport: " Gentlemen of the Livery, " It is not with a Design to make a pompous Parade of my own Services, or to depreciate the Services of other Men, that I now presume to ad- dress you, but to wipe off some Aspersions ob- liquely cast upon me by the Gentleman who spoke a little Time since. " The worthy Alderman talked of " certain Predictions ;" how far some of them have been fulfilled in his Conduct, you are the best Judges. He also talked of " Paragraphs" and " Letters;" Gentlemen, I do avow being the Author of many Paragraphs, and of many Letters ; I have for Years been a public Writer in the public Papers; but with respect to the different Pieces which 1 have sent, at different Times, to the Public Advertiser, whether Essays or Paragraphs, the Printer was au- thorised to use his Discretion, and give me up, or not, as the Author; yet, notwithstanding this fair and candid Manner of dealing, notwithstanding the Complaints urged against: me for my Writings, none of the Complainants have ever thought pro- per to call me to a private Account, or proceed against me as a Culprit amenable to the Laws of my Country. They have not fought that Sa- tisfaction which, if I had been guilty, they might easily have obtained in the Courts of Judicature. Gentlemen, if there be on either Side Reason to complain, I certainly have the most cause for Complaint. A specious Manner will hide an infinite deal of Art; a Shew of Openness will cover the deepest Dissimulation. I make no Kind of Scruple to avow what I write ; I have done it on many and will do it on every Occasion if pro- perly called upon. The Character of stabbing in the Dark belongs not to me ; and I should be ex- tremely sorry to arrogate to myself the Merits of other Men. " I conceive it to be my Duty, Gentlemen, as a Citizen and a Member of Parliament, to give you on every Matter of public Importance the best Information in my Power. I have a Right, and I will exercise that Right to animadvert upon the public Conduct of any Candidate for your Favour : Others may throw out dark Infinuations; Mr. Al- derman Oliver and Mr. Alderman Sawbridge may throw out Hints against a Man whom they dare not name. 1 dare, continued he, own that I have frequently censured various Parts of Mr. Saw- bridge's public Conduct; I never once touched upon his private Conduct. " When Mr. Alderman Crosby ( who deservedly gained the Applause and Esteem of his Fellow- Citizens for acting so glorious, so truly patriotic a Part) when he was pitched upon by the Livery to occupy a second Time the City Chair, Mr. Alderman Sawbridge was the Man who damned the patriotic Measure. " The Conduct of that Gentleman in regard to the Antigallican Society was to the last Degree cul- pable, and proves a Desertion from those public Principles be still professes to maintain inviolably sacred. How can the Alderman reconcile his Conduct last Year with the Professions he makes of always acting in Obedience to your Will ? On the Hustings he pretends to be a meer Machine in your Hands, which you may move as suits your Pleasure; in the Council Chamber he spurns at your Commands, and acts diametrically opposite to your Wishes, by scratching for the person whom you did not intend should preside over you ! This, Gentlemen, is a Species of Inconsistency too glaring to admit of Excuse ; too shameful not to call for public Censure. " The damned, I beg Pardon, I meant to say condemned public Conduct of Mr. Alderman Saw- bridge, this it is I have arraigned; this it is I will continue to arraign, in order that you may not be deceived but clearly discern the Friends, and set a Mark upon the Enemies of the People. " Instead of complaining about Charges urged against him, it would have been more fair of Mr. Sawbridge to have exculpated himself; let him clear up every Part of his public Conduct to the Satisfaction of the Livery ; let him do this, then, and not untill then, will I lay aside my Pen now employed in your Service. " But, Gentlemen, this is deviating from the Business of the Day, which is appropriated to the Choice of a Mayor; I shall therefore intrude no longer upon your Patience, than to assure you, that as I began, so I will steadily persevere, till Death shall put a Period to my Existence, in every Effort to promote the cause of Liberty, and ren- der essential Services to the People." Mr. Wilkes having finished, Bankes, Halifax, Esdale, Shakespeare, and Kennet were successively put up, but received a public Disapprobation. Wilkes, Bull, Sawbridge, and Oliver, were then named, and the Shew of Hands appeared in Favour of the two former ; but a Poll was de- manded by Mr. Deputy Judd and Mr. Hurford for Messrs. Sawbridge and Oliver; by Messrs. House and Saxby for Wilkes and Bull; and at Four o'Clock the Poll began. The Sheriffs declared the Poll should not be published. A Correspondent informs us, that One Hun- dred Guineas to Fifty were betted this Morning, at a Coffee- House near Charing- Cross, that Mr. her Fortune to her Nieces, on Condition that they are permitted to spend Part of it in England. It is said the Duke of Gloucester would have accompanied his Brother to Italy, had it not been suggested to him that a great Lady much disap- proved of it. The Duke of Cumberland and his Duchess in- tend, it is said, to pay a Visit to Zell, where they have Reason to believe their Company will be acceptable. Several Caveats were on Monday entered at Doctors Commons against the Heir at Law of the late Duke of Kingston taking out Letters of Ad- ministration. The Dukedom of Kingston is extinct by the Death of the late Duke; but the Earldom of King- ston, it is said, descends to a collateral Branch. The Edict lately published by his Prussian Ma- jesty, in Favour of the Society of Jesuits, is al- lowed on all Hands to be the most masterly Stroke of Policy practised by that Monarch. In Ireland, says a Correspondent, the civil Power is almost abolished ; but the Military, by the Augmentation of their Numbers, is increased to a Degree of Strength that may yet make even England tremble for her Freedom. Ireland is become a Place of Arms to the Crown. Her Vi- cinity to Wales and Scotland is an alarming Cir- cumstance to the Yeomanry of this Land— to the Liberty of this island. The Representation of the Royal Review at Portsmouth will be introduced in a Pantomime at Drury- Lane Theatre ; ten Ships of the Line are upon the Stocks, and in great Forwardness, on the Occasion. The Triton East- Indiaman, Capt. Elphinstone, is arrived off Falmouth from Coast and Bay. And the Hector East- Indiaman, Capt. Williams, is safe arrived off the Start. The East India Ships, taken up for the Year 1773, are destined as follow : The Asia, Gamage, and Bute, Bendy, for Coast and Bay ; a new Ship, Newte, for Coast and China; a new Ship, Hay - ter, for St. Helena and Bencoelen; the Speke, Jackson, and Sea Horse, Arthur, for Coast and Bay; the Morse, Kent, and a new Ship, Broad- ley, for Coast and China; the Dutton, Rice, and Specific, Barclay, for Coast and Bay; the Nor thumberland, Rees, and Thames, Clarke, for Bombay; the Calcutta, Thompson, for ditto; and the Stafford, Liell, for Bombay and China. Last Monday Evening as one Mr. Wilmot, a Gentleman of Warwickshire, was coming to Town, he was attacked upon the Road by a Gang of Gypsies, who pulled him from his Horse, and af- terwards dragged him into a Wood near the Road Side, where they risled his Pockets of Four Gui- neas and some Silver, telling him, that he might think himself well off that they were not provided with Money Scales: in which Case, had his Gui- neas proved light, they would certainly have treated him as a Cheat. He had a Pair of Bags on his Horse, in which were some Valuables, but they did not attempt to open it. Last Week, at Ewell Market, near Epsom in Surry, Wheat was sold for 13l. odd Shillings per Load, which about three Months ago was sold for 20l. per Load. Bath, Sept. 30. The Price of Wheat at Exeter is no more than 5s. 9d. per Bushel. The Harvest in Cornwall has been so plentiful and so fine, that in many Parts of that County, where Corn was scarce, the Price of the best new Barley is reduced to 2s. 2d. and 2s. 6d. the Win- chester Bushel. Canterbury, Sept. 29. On Tuesday a Seizure, to the Amount of 15,000l. or upwards, consisting of French Silk and Blond Lace, was made by Mess. Rouse and Tankard, Riding Officers, as- sisted by a Party of Dragoons, in the House of a person at Horton, near Hythe. There was also a Writ of 800l. issued from the Exchequer, on which he was made Prisoner, and brought to Can- terbury, where he gave Bail and was released. MILITIA.

RATIONAL SELF- LOVE: OR, Monday's and Wednesday's Posts. FOREIGN AFFAIRS. Warsaw, Sept. 14. WE talk much of a Peace between the Russians and Turks; the former seem to wish it in good Earnest. And we are told that the Court of Pertersburg have addressed themselves to that of andon, to use their good Offices to effect the change of the Prince Repnin, prisoner at Con- tantinople. Vienna, Sept. 15. The Emperor, notwithstand- ing his great Fatigue, enjoys a perfect State of Health. This Monarch has travelled on Horse- ck, on his late Tour, above 700 German Miles, ing only once in the Evening of each Day of h Food as he found at the Place where he stop- d, and slept on a Straw Bed, covered only with Cloak. SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, Sept. 28. We are informed from Iross, that on Wednesday last, a Coal Pit be- nging to Lord Cochran overflowed with Water, which two Men who were in the Bottom of the t unfortunately lost their Lives, one of whom a Wife and seven Children, and the other a ise with eight. At the Time this Accident happened his Lordship was at the Mouth of the t, and being alarmed by a sudden Noise, looked own to see what was the Matter, when he ob- served the Water rising with the greatest Rapidity, d had scarcely Time to save his Life by Flight, having risen in a few Minutes six Feet above e Mouth of the Pit, and overflowed a great Part the Country adjacent in such a Manner as to under Travelling impracticable. It is not easy conjecture where such a vast Quantity of Water hould have been collected as to fill this Pit, which supposed to be at least eighty Fathoms deep; d the Sea been full, that Circumstance might have been assigned as the Cause of this extraor- nary Phaenomenon, as the Pit lies pretty near but at the Time the Accident happened, the a was at its lowest Ebb. COUNTRY NEWS. Ludlow, 0ct. 1. At our Fair last Wednesday ere was the greatest Quantity of Salt Butter at has been known for some Years. On the Eve the Fair it was bought in the Public Houses at . 3d. per Stone; but the next Day it sell Price much that the very best was bought at 6s. d a great deal carried back unsold. Hops, nch used to be a principal Commodity at this air, were now a very scarce one, there not being above 150 Pockets of Old and New, which sold m 7l. to 9l. 9s. per Hundred, and the very best ew Hops reached 81. 15s. There was great enty of Cheese, which sold from ll. 6s. to 1l. s. per Hundred. Pigs were much lower than ey have been for some Time ; and Cattle in General sold well. Birmingham, 0ct. 4. On Thursday Evening between Eight and Nine o'Clock, Joseph ellington, Carrier from Walsal to this Town, stopped on his Return Home, on Handsworth eath, by two Footpads, who demanded his Mo- y, and threatened to blow his Brains out if he refused to deliver it, or make any Resistance; but Carrier not being in the least intimidated, positively declared he had none, and resolutely fired them to fire; upon which, with some Dif- isfaction, they left him. They were imme- diately pursued, but could not be heard of after- wards. They were both tall lusty Men, and were supposed to be Colliers. Gloucester, 0ct. 4. At our Fair, on Tuesday there was a greater Quantity of Cheese than s been brought for many Years. The Prices re: Best Making 26s. to 30s. but 28s. was the n of the Fair; Two- meal 23s. to 25s.— This ll in the Price of Cheese, it is imagined, will some Degree reduce the Price of Meat. LONDON, Monday, 0ct. 4. A noble Lord has lately had a Scheme pre- ted to him, by which the Public are to be re- sed of Two- thirds of the National Debt in but nineteen Years, provided we are at Peace, that without any additional Tax on the people. We are assured from very good Authority that Laws respecting Forgery are now under a vision. There are above sixty Appeals in different causes be sried before the House of Peers the next Ses- sions of Parliament. True it is that the whole Phalanx of Corruption in Motion to secure a Majority against the en- ng general Election .— A Battalion of Ten have subscribed 3000l, each, to make a common se of 30 ,000l. to purchase as many Seats for many Boroughs as they can ; the Candidates to chosen out of the Ten by Lot, and the seven rs Gains to be brought into a common Stock, equally shared : Of this Decemvirate is a no- Justicc to the East of Shoreditch, who, though able to read or write, is actually now from on a Canvass for the above Purpose. — No nder then that the Good, Great, and Able, k of declining, and retiring at the End of the psent Sessions, from such Company. A Court Alderman conversing lately with Mr. ilkes about the present Election, asked him, y he should persist in his Pursuit of the Mayor- y, when he knew how odious he was at Court, that five or six great Men, and one very great, swore he never should be Mayor : Because s Wilkes, more than twice as many hundred have sworn that I shall; And how am I so odious continued he, when your great Friends have inguished me from all other Aldermen ? For though many have been sworn into the Mayoralty, shall be the first that was ever sworn out of it. Saturday Morning Sir Stephen Theodore Jan- Chamberlain of London, went and possed Liverymen came to Town, one other seventy- eight Miles from the it is expected, will occasion his Royal Highness's Return to this Kingdom immediately. The great Abundance of base Silver now cir- culating in this Kingdom, being found a consi- derable Intertuption in the course of Trade, we have good Authority to assure our Readers, some Parliamentary Measures will be adopted at the Opening of the next Sessions, by which the Pub- lic will be subject to as great Loss as they are by the Gold. The total Suppression of the Jesuits is an Event the most favourable to the Peace of Europe, as their Disposition for political Intrigues had ren- dered them at once formidable and dangerous. Private Letter from Rome, Aug. 31. " His Holiness, notwithstanding the extreme Rigour with which he proceeds against the Jesuits, is disposed to render them Services of a spiritual Kind ; for which Purpose he has drawn up a Ma- nual of Devotions peculiarly adapted to their present Situation. In the confessional Part of one of them are these remarkable Words: " We ac- knowledge, with Confusion of Face, that though we derived the Name of our lately suppressed Order from Jesus, yet too many have acted as if the Devil himself had been the Author of our Principles." Extract of another Letter from Rome. " The Fall of the Jesuits, like a great Event as it is, has shook this Country to its Centre. His Holiness, in the Irresolution which he testified so long before he ventured to annihilate that famous Society, gave many Proofs that he was afraid of the Event. And not without Reason, for, since the Moment of their Dissolution, the Jesuits have iusulted, vexed, and satirized him in every Quar- ter, and in every Shape that human Invention could devise. The Doctrine now propagated through Italy, and what has been the Subject of the most recent Pasquinade is, that the Fall of the Popedom must inevitably follow the Fall of the Jesuits. To support this Doctrine, a Pro- phecy has been providentially dug up at Bologna, which puts the Matter beyond a Doubt. This Prophecy contains Words to the following Pur- port, When Ignatius is low, let the Shepherd of the Seven Hills look about him. These Things are Trisles ; but the Pope, with all his Philosophy, is grieved at them, and is using all his Efforts to put a Stop to them." Extract of a Letter from Moldavia, Aug 22. " The grand Army of the Russians is now in much Distress, but are effectually secured for some Time against any Attacks from the Turks, yet are badly off in respect to Ammunition and other warlike Stores, a large Supply of which has been lately sent off in the following Manner : Thirty Waggons laden with the Supplies, and under the Escort of 6000 Foot and 2000 Horse, were on the Road to Jassy from Vienna, but came round ( to avoid the Turks) on the Borders of Poland, and not directly through Transilvania, which is by much the nearest Way. They arrived on the 12th Instant in this Province, on the Banks of the River Pruth, which River they passed at a Ford, and bent their Rout immediately for the City of Sereth, about twelve Leagues from Jassy. The Grand Vizir, whose Army now lies at Munuth, was determined to interrupt this Supply, and ac- cordingly detached 2000 Janissaries, and 5000 Spahis, who by forced and secret Marches came up with the Waggons before it was possible for Marshal Romanzow to send a farther Reinforce- ment of Men. The Russians placed the Wag- gons for Intrenchments, and desended themselves with great Courage and Resolution ; a great Num- ber of the Turks were killed by the Artillery of the Russians, but at last the Numbers of the for- mer prevailed. The Russians fled towards Jassy, and left the Supplies to the Mercy of the Enemy, who rested two Days after the Action, and by that Means has given Count Orlow an Opportu- nity to attack them in his Turn, for which Pur- pose he is now preparing to march." Letters from Petersburgh, dated Aug. 20. men- tion that our Factory there is in a very unpro- mising Situation, from the great Credit our Mer- chants are under the Necessity of giving, and that it is supposed, unless the Empress grants some fresh Advantages in Favour of the English, our Commerce with the Russians will be quite ruined. Wednesday a Court Marshal finished their Sit- tings on a Soldier belonging to the third Rigiment of Guards, who was employed and paid to raise Recruits in Scotland for our Army : Instead of which, when he had got a Number together, he contrived, in League with another, to send them into the Service of France. He was sentenced to be whipped. A Merchant, residing not a Mile from Leaden- hall- Street, was arrested a few Days ago by a Bailiff, who had disguised himself as a Shoe- black, and came at an early Hour of the Morn- ing to the Merchant's Door, where he sat down on the Steps with his Implements about him : After several Messages to go from the Door had been delivered to him by a Servant without Ef- fect, the Master at length appeared, when the Shoe- black slung off the Mask, and seized his Prisoner, who immediately paid the Debt. A Correspondent says, the old Proverb of what is bred in the Bone never leaving the Flesh, is truly exemplified in the young Foreigner men- tioned in Saturday's Papers having left his Wife and Family and gone off with a Lady, it being only a Family Exploit— His Father, who kept an Academy, having lately cheated all his Credi- tors and run to France ; his Mother having passed for the Sister of her Husband's Partner, ' till he married and left her, when ( to their great Credit) it is known they were no Relations, and she now is Housekeeper to an Hibernian Adven- turer, who keeps his Wife at Board Wages from Home, after spending the best Part of her For-- tune .— Both the persons alluded to are School- Masters, and from the Precepts and Examples of such immaculate Characters, what blessed Advan-- tages may not our Youth expect to receive ! A certain noble Lord, well known in the Gam- bling World, it reduced to the low Pitch of taking up Jewels and other Articles of Value, upon his ing Into each other's Hands. This is inserted as a Caution to the honest Trader how they trust Nobility. Monday Evening, about Seven o'Clock, a most dreadful Fire broke out at a Farmer's, at Chilton, near Cambridge, which consumed a considerable Quantity of Corn, to the Amount of upwards of 200l. It was occasioned by stacking green Hay. Wednesday Morning a Tradesman in South- wark having some Dispute with his Wife as they were at Breakfast, in a Passion cut her Throat in so terrible a Manner that she expired instantly. He immediately absconded. Friday the Wife of a Captain, in the Jamaica Trade, who had been on board to take Leave of her Husband, was let down the Ship's Side in a Chair, when the Ropes broke, by which the Lady sell into the River ; and, notwithstanding all pos- sible Assistance was given, she was drowned in the Sight of her Husband. A Gentleman of Veracity, who happened to be Hemel Hempstead, in Hertfordshire, on Sun- day last, transcribed the following Advertisement verbatim, which was wrote in a tolerable Hand, and stuck up in the Market Place there., viz. " This here is to give Notis, that there will be a Cow rosted hole at Tring, in this kounty, on the tenth of October this next Munth, and a Watch to be rastled for which is to be lade Down to the Fier at ten a Clock, it being the fare day.

GEORGE R. GEORGE the Third, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, and so forth ; to all to whom these Presents shall come, greeting : Whereas BENJAMIN COLLINS, of the City of New Sarum, in our County of Wilts, has, by his Petition, humbly represented unto Us, that he hath sound out and invented a new Composition of Snuff, called and known by the Name of Cordial Cephalic Snuff, which he humbly conceives will be greatly conducive to the Health of our Subjects, and that this Invention is of his own Contrivance.

Witness Ourself at Westminster, this 18tb Day of January, in the 13th Year of Our Reign, By Writ of Privy Seal. COCKS. This CORDIAC CEPHALIC SNUFF has, by long Experience, been found an effectual Remedy for mos t Disorders of the Head, especially the common Head- Ach, to which it hardly ever fails giving im- mediate Ease, and by frequent Use prevents its Re- turn. It admirably opens and purges the Head, strengthens the Nerves, revives the Spirits, and has a most grateful aromatic Smell. It removes Drow- siness, Sleepiness, Giddiness, and Vapours ; relieves Dimness of the Eyes, is excellent in curing recent Deafness, and has been of great Service in hysteric and paralytic Complaints, and in restoring the Me- mory whem impaired by Disorders of the Head. It is also extremely proper for all Persons who visit the Sick, or go into unwholesome Rooms or unhealthy Places, and hot Climates, as it fortifies the Head against noxious Exhalations and infectious Air. " it is sold by F. Newbery, jun. at No. 65, in St. Paul's Church- Yard, opposite to the North Door of the Church; and Messrs. Dicey and Co. at No. 10, in Bow Church- Yard, London ; and by H. Berrow, in Worcester; also by reputable Shopkeepers in most Cities and Towns in Great Britain ( by Ap- pointment of B. Collins, the Patentee) at 6d. the Bottle, with a proper Allowance to those who take Quantities to export, or sell again. THURSDAY'S POST. ( By Express from London.) Arrived the Mails from Holland and Flanders. Lisbon, Sept. 12. THE Dissolution of the Je- suits gives the greatest Pleasure to every reason- able Person every where, but in no Place so par- ticularly as in Portugal, where they have long been feared and detested. The Portuguese seem to get rid of that Bigotry daily, which has so long made them the Contempt of all Europe ; and Regulations so reasonable and judicious have lately been made in the Church, that they appear almost miraculous : In short, the Pope's Power does not any where so sensibly decrease as in Portugal. SCOTLAND. Extract of a Letter from a Gentleman in Strawhspey, in Scotland, dated Sept. 19, to his Friends in Aberdeen. " I am fully convinced that the Emigration will soon be general in this Country. Two hun- dred and fifty Emigrants failed the other Day from sort George, and 308 of the M'Donalds of Glengary, and the neighbouring Districts from sort William. No less than eight or ten Vessels are hired this Season to carry off Emigrants. Eight hundred and forty People failed from the Island of Lewes in July. Alarmed with this Lord F , their Master, came down from London about five Weeks ago to treat with the Remainder of his Tenants. What are the Te, ms they asked of him, think you ? " The Land at the old Rents; the Augmentation paid for three Years backward to be refunded ; and his Factor to be immediately dismissed." I have not yet learned whether he has agreed to these Terms ; but he must soon, or his Lands will be left an uninhabited Waste. COUNTRY NEWS. Canterbury, Oct. 2. At our Hop- market, on Wednesday last, but little done; a few were sold in fine Cloth, and fetched 71. 10s. to 7l. 15s. some few fine 81. More offered, but re- fused ; Bags 7l. to 7l. 7s. per Hundred. Upon the Whole, there was no great Spirit on either Side ; Merchants and Planters appeared indise- rently inclined for dealing. LONDON, Tuesday, Oct. 5. Quakers went in a Body to Guildhall, and polled for the Aldermen Wilkes and Bull. A Correspondent, who is a real Friend to Li- berty, wishes that the Leaders among the Patriots would at once follow the Example of the Ministry, who, though like the Patriots, are disunited, yet they always join in any Opposition against the common Enemy, the Sons of Freedom. If Mr. Wilkes does not succeed in his present Endeavours, it is said that it will be the last Fa- vour he will ever solicit from the Livery of Lon- don. Those who seem to be acquainted with his Sentiments say he will, if he fails in his Election, embark for America. Yesterday upwards of 120 Liverymen, Mem- bers of the Lumber Troop, went in a Body to Guildhall, and gave their Votes for Mess. Wilkes and Bull. Lord North intends to produce a Plan at the Opening of the Parliament, for the better Regu- lation of the Laws concerning the Poor, which have been sound very burthensome on the major Part of the Inhabitants of this Kingdom, and very inadequate to the Purpose of removing Beggars from our Streets, or to affording the Distressed that Support they have a Right to expect from the immense Sums which are annually levied for their Use. The Vagant Act, it is well known, like many other Laws, defeats its own Purposes by the Se- verity of its Penalties; by this cruel Act, all Per- sons wandering Abroad and begging, are to be deemed Rogues and Vagabonds, and punished with Whipping or Imprisonment; and not till after such Flagellation and Confinement can the Culprit be legally conveyed to his Settlement. Here is no Distinction made between the vilest Impostor and the most inoffensive accidentally distressed Traveller; the Magistrate, if he acts ac- cording to Law, is constrained, however widely Cases may differ, indiscriminately to punish before he can relieve .— A Circumstance which does very little Credit to our boasted System of Laws. It is a pleasant Circumstance to have the first Honours and Dignities in this Country handed about from one to another; though indeed, says our Correspondent, the Seals seem to be lodged for the present, notwithstanding the Shoulders are not yet sound for flinging the vacant Ribbons upon, though repeatedly tendered by the Premier. A Correspondent assures us from respectable Authority, that all the old Silver will shortly be called in. The rigid Discipline observed with a certain Heir Apparent is very singular, for he is never permitted to quit the Presence of his Governor but under the greatest Restriction ; though the Bi- shop of O —-— is granted every Indulgence, It may be relied upon as a Fact, that the King of Poland has written a Letter to his Majesty full of Acknowledgments for his repeated Efforts to restore Peace and Tranquility to his long dis- tracted Kingdom. It is now the current Report on the Continent, that the modern Alexander, in order the better to promote his Schemes, has proposed a new Wife to a certain Northern Potentate, which it is be- lieved will be accepted. It may be relied on that the Empress of Russia has, at last ( after refusing so many Offers) in- treated the Court of Great Britain to endeavour to bring about Peace between her and the Grand Signior. A private Letter from Paris says, that the Phy- sicians have declared that the French King cannot survive but a few Weeks longer, and that an en- tire Change in the Ministers of that King will soon take Place. Extract of a Letter from Vienna, Sept. 18. " They write from Constantinople, that it is the general Opinion there, that Affairs cannot continue long in the present Situation ; that a Peace must be concluded soon, or a most terrible War will break out in Europe; and that they are afraid of the latter, as the greatest Prepara- tions are making to push on the War with Vi- gour. Within these two Months 40,000 Recruits have been raised at Constantinople, besides those that have been raised in the other Parts of the Ottoman Empire. They add, that it is no longer a Secret that the Court of France has actually offered its Assistance to the Porte, insisting that the Terms of Peace proposed by Russia shall not be agreed to. As often as the Divan assem- bles, they have a Conference with the French Minister, which occasions Jealousies and Uneasi- ness among the other Ministers residing there." Extract of a Letter from Lisbon, Sept. 8. " By a Vessel, just arrived in the Tagus from Magadore, a Portuguese Settlement on the Coast of Africa, we have Advice that the St. Antonio, a Portuguese Man of War, had been run away with, and the Captain and Crew murdered, in the following Manner : She had been on a Cruise, and, being soul, put into a small Cove on the Slave Coast, to careen. The Crew were ashore, during the Careen, and were over- powered and killed by the Natives, who launched the Vessel, and were seen in much Distress by a small English Ship that put in soon after at Magadore." A Letter from Warsaw says, " On the Day the Regicides suffered, Father L y openly de- clared, there were Reasons to believe that neither the King of Poland nor the King of Portugal would due a natural Death : He is taken into Custody for his Freedom of Speech." Capt. Phipps and Lutwidge, in their Expedi- tion to the North Pole, only penetrated to 81. 29. when they sound the Ice so thick that they could not proceed any further. For 14 Days they were entirely surrounded, and began to think that their Situation was so thoroughly closed, that they must abandon their Ships; they therefore prepared to insormed that Government will not sit out any more Vessels on these Northern Expeditions. They write from Lisbon, that the most fatal Consequences are to be dreaded from the Sup- pression of the Jesuits. It is assured there are above 7000 up in Arms in Portugal; all the Troops are in Motion as in the late Insurrection. The Emperor of Morocco, notwithstanding the Treaty which he pretended to conclude with the States. General last Year, has renewed his Attacks upon their Ships and Commerce. He has lately harrassed them at Larache, Gibraltar, Cadiz, and all along the Coast of Spain. To put a Stop to the further Insults of this piratical Monarch, the Dutch are sitting out a new Squadron sor the Protection of their Trade, Six Vessels, of 50 Guns each, are in Equipment, to be well com- pleted and manned, in order to chastise these Bar- barians, and reduce them to Order. A certain young Nobleman, who is not long arrived at his Rank and sortune, being some Years ago at Lucca, a little Republic not above fifteen Miles in Length, on the Tuscan Sea, he happened, one Night as he was at the Opera, to have some Dispute with the Officer of the Guard, which occasioned his being put under an Arrest. The next Morning the Gonsalonier ( the Head of the Republic) hearing of his Rank and Family, took off the Arrest, but sent him Word " to quit the Dominions in two Days." The other re- ceived the Messenger with an affected Politeness, and charged him ( in the same Strain) to thank his Master for so great an Indulgence " for ( con- tinues he) that will exactly suit me. I have an Affair of Gallantry with an Opera Girl, which will take me up within two Hours of the Time ; and these will be fully sufficient to prevent my trespassing on his Highness's Commands." We are informed, that a certain Clergyman, not one hundred Miles from L — th - ry, in Buck- inghamshire, happening to take a Ride on a Sunday this Harvest, and observing that a Far- mer of his Parish had a very good Crop of Wheat in Shocks, insisted on taking Tythe in Kind of them, though he had gave the Farmer no previ- ous Notice for that Purpose. The Farmer not consenting, as taking Tythes in Kind was not customary in the whole Parish, this worthy Di- vine then had the Conscience to demand 16s. an Acre in Lieu of the Tythe ; however, 12s. an Acre the Farmer is obliged to pay him; and what is very remarkable, the Rent of the Field is not 15s. an Acre, and the last Incumbent never re- ceived above 2s. an Acre for Tythe. However incredible this may appear, it is a real Fact. As the several Articles of Life are at present rated, it appears, by a nice Calculation, that every Country Gentleman, who has an Income of 1000l. a Year, pays no less than 350l. of it in Taxes and Excise. The weekly Consumption of Flour within the Bills of Mortality is supposed to be from 2000 to 2500 Sacks. On the 23d of September last was sold, at Al- trincham, the perpetual Advowson of the Rectory of Cheadle, in Cheshire, ( now for Life in the Possession of the Rev. Mr. Boardman, aged 75) for 5,6601. Mr. Buck of Crow's Nest, near Wakefield, was the Purchaser of the Rectory, which is now less at 401l. per Annum. This Morning about six o'Clock, the Purser of the Hector East- Indiaman, Capt. Williams, from Bengal, came to the East- India House, with the News of the above Ship's being safe arrived in the Downs. She left no Ship at St. Helena. On Sunday Morning, about One o'Clock, three Fellows attempted to break into the Hen- Roost of Farmer Steward, at Old Windsor; but the Fa- mily, which consists of himself, Wife, and a Maid- Servant only, being alarmed, he got out of Bed, took a loaded Gun, and went to the Place ; on his appearing, they threatened his Life with the most dreadful Imprecations, and threw many Stones and Brickbats at him. He expostulated with them for some Minutes ; at last, one more daring than the rest, came close up to him, and swore he would knock his Brains out; on which the Farmer fired, and shot the Man dead. His Companions attempted to take off the Body, but were prevented by some of the Neighbours com- ing to the Place. The Deceased was a Bargeman at New Windsor, and has left a Wife and three small Children. The same Day the Coroner's Inquest sat on the Body, and brought in their Verdict, Self- Defence ; on which the Farmer was immediately admitted to Bail. The following is an Extract of a Letter from Redburn in Hertfordshire : " We have had a most amazing Crop of Wheat, yet the Price ad- vances every Day. We now give Eighteen- pence for the Half- peck Loaf. It is a melan- choly Thing to think that the more abundant the Bounties of Providence are, the dearer we pay for all Kinds of Provisions." Last Month the Society at the Thatched House discharged 47 Debtors, chiefly Manufacturers, Seamen, and Labourers, who had 27 Wives, with 65 Children, from the several Prisons of this Metropolis. The celebrated Miss Catley, we hear, has cleared 1100l. in Dublin within three Months. On Sunday in the Afternoon a Fire broke out at a Baker's, in Charles- Street, near the Mid- dlesex Hospital, which consumed the Inside of the same. Last Night, a little before Eleven o'Clock, a dreadful Fire broke out at the Cooperage of Mr. Watts, in Thames- Street, which entirely con- sumed the same, and damaged the adjacent House. Luckily no Lives were lost. This is the second Time the above has been destroyed within these three Years. The Damage is estimated at about 6000l. On Friday a young Woman in Oxford- Street, who had lain in but a few Days, in the Absence of the Woman who nursed her, murdered her In- fant, and afterwards cut her own Throat in so terrible a Manner that she expired in less than a Quarter of an Hour. On Friday Night a Tradesman, just arrived in Town from Worcester, was enticed into a House On an oval Tablet on the Front of the Sa phagus of General Wolfe's Monument in W minster Abbey, just opened, is the following Inscription : " To the Memory of James Wolfe, Esq; Ma General and Commander in Chief of the Bri Land Forces on the Expedition against Queb who, surmounting by Ability and Valour all Obstacles of Art and Nature, was stain in the Moment of Victory, at the Head of his conquering Tro on the 13th of September, 1759 ; the K and the Parliament of Great Britain dedicate Monument." Saturday Morning a Duel was fought in a Fi behind the Museum between J — S — Barrister at Law, and Mr B ks. jun. of C- Street, when the former had the Misfortune to shot in his Right Arm. The Challenge was given by the former for the latter refusing to admi Lady up to Mr. S n's Apartments, Mr. S- being a Lodger to Mr. B Price of CORN per Wheat 48s. to 54s. Oats 18s. to 23s. 6d.

New, 61. 81. to 9l. per Cwt; 7l. 81. to 9l. On Thursday last Ann Eginton, Widow, committed to our City Gaol, on a strong Su cion of stealing some Irish Cloth Sheets and o Things, the Property of a Family where she been employed in washing.

THE Minister are at their Wit's End about their favourite Scheme in Ireland. They cannot persuade the Irish Nation, that an Union, with Great in will be for their Good and Service. A Ge- neral Land- Tax, to which they have the greatest sion, stares then: in the Face, and deters them m all Thoughts of such a Junction. Besides, the nistry have brought their Plan of Union upon Carpet at a very untoward Time ; for the Ex- chequer is so confounded low, that there is not sufficient left to bribe the leading Men in that kingdom; and without Bribery the Ministry have Power or Interest to carry and bring about any latter, either here or there. All their Influence in the Treasury ; shut up the Door of it, and Minister's mercenary Troops would immediately n in an Impeachment of him. Titles of Honour ll, no Doubt, be profusely offered upon this Oc- casion to the Irish, and they may operate upon a w. But ministerial Promises will not pass current Ireland, they are too light and deficient in Weight; nothing but Sterling Gold will go there. this Part the Minister's Shoe pinches, he is Want of Money , and it would be well for Eng- land, as well as Ireland, was he to continue in such ant till after the next General Erection. We ight then, perhaps, have an honest Parliament, and at would soon redress all the Grievances of this unhappy Nation, and probably bring some Heads the Block. It is a melancholy Consideration, at the Prosperity of the People can only be hoped r from the Poverty of the Crown. And, yet it undeniable, that the Miseries of the People slow om those very Riches which they raise for their own Service and Benefit. From whence we may con- clude, that those who ought to redress the Grievances the Nation, are the Cause of them. And how etched must the State of that Patient be, who hath Reason to apprehend more Danger from his Doctor an the Disease ? MARCUS. To the PR INTER. AS a universal Bankruptcy is likely to take Place, and as all our News- papers are crouded th Advertisements of Sales by Auction of the oods of those who have become insolvent, I am Opinion that the best Trade stirring is that of Auctioneer ; I am therefore determined to enter to that Branch of Business. It requires no other capital than a tolerable Share of Impudence, a Vo- bility or Fluency of Speech, and good hearty ings; all of which I thank my Stars I am pos- sessed of. But there is one Particular which almost ters me from engaging in that lucrative Business; am sensible of my Inability in drawing up an Ad- vertisement. Your Langfords and your Christies e so very excellent in that Department, that a ain Matter- of- fact Advertisement, without the figures of Rhetoric, and other Embellishments, which they so lavishly display in their Compositions totally overlooked, or disregarded.

There is something so strikingly beautiful and gant in this Description, that I almost despair of success, should I attempt to oppose such an exalted nius. The Word prolific conveys such an exten- sive Idea, that I would willingly give an hundred Guineas for an exclusive Right to use it upon all Occasions. should, however, be glad of your Opinion, Sir, the following Advertisement; it is of the first e by Auction that I have had the Honour to be employed in.

BEAUME DE VIE. By the KING'S Patent. THE great Number of extraordinary Cures daily performed by this most efficacious Medicine, Accounts of which are sent from all parts of the British Dominions. render it unnecessary to lavish Encomiums on its salutary Effects; suffice it therefore to say, that the Beaume, by its cordial, attenuating, and detergent Powers, fortifies the Stomach and Bowels, and, by procuring a good Digestions, purifies the Blood and Juices, and gives Vigour to the whole Constitution . To these Qualities the FACULTY attribute its having proved so eminently serviceable in Gouty, Rheu- matic, Scorbutic, Languid, Nervous, and Hypochondriao cases: And hence, also, they account for its being so par- ticularly beneficial in Female Disorders. by To prevent Counterseits the Bottles are each signed W. NICOLL, T. BECKET, ( Vender.) ( a Proprietor.) This most admirable Family Medicine ( by Appointment of the Proprietors) is sold by W.

However disagreeable it may be to the Pro- prietors of the BEAUME DE VIE, to adopt a Measure they had resolved against, they cannot resist the Solicitations of many Correspondents, who complain of their not publish- ing the cases transmitted to them, and thereby preventing many an unhappy Object, labouring under similar Circum- stances, from receiving equal Benefit. Actuated by Mo- tives of Humanity, and an earnest Wish to contribute to the Assistance of their suffering Fellow creatures, the Pro- prietors will occasionally publish some 0f the extraordinary Cures performed by the BEAUME : The Satisfaction arising fron the Relief of an Individual in Distress being more than a Compensation for the Censures they may incure from the Prejudiced and Interested. CASE. A. G. Esq; of a gross, corpulent Habit, hid been several Years so afflicted with ulcerated Legs, that he could not walk : The sedentary Life he led, and two Sali- vations, had reduced him so low, that he was confined t0 his Chamber, with both Legs supported on a Stool ; and, to add to his Misery, was constantly tormented with the Gout. A Friend, who was Eye- witness t0 the good Effects of the BEAUME DE VIE, in the case of Mr. S. *, which he thought similar, strongly recommended it t0 him: He, for a long Time, declined it, from a Dislike to advertised Medicines; but his case growing daily worse, he at last ventured. The good Effects were almost instantaneous: Sleep, which for a long Time had forsaken him, was re- stored: His Appetite, which had been quite palled, re- turned, and his Digestion was good. In six Week his Gout left him, and in two more the Ulcers, which, during the Course, were dressed with a Dossel of Lint dipped in the Beaume ( over Which was laid a Pledget of common Cerase) were perfectly cicatrised. It is nine Months since the Cure was compleated, and he can walk eight or ten Miles at a Time. He has not had the least Return of any Com- plaint , except once that he was threatened with an Attack of the Gout, but which yielded to a few Spoonfuls 0f the Beaume . Any candid Enquirer, by applying to the Ven- der, Mr. Nicholl, in St, Paul's Church Yard, London, will he further satisfied with Respect to the Authenticity of the above Facts, Vide Narrative of Cases.
