For the Efficacy of this Medicine, The Public are referred to the Case of Garret Ivory, so often advertised in this paper, who had laboured under a Venereal Complaint for seven years, underwent a variety of means, and was at last salivated without any effect ; after the latter operation he was seized with a- most violent pain in the limbs, a dreadful oppression Of the stomach, general languor, total loss of, appetite, with such agonies at night as entirely deprived him of rest, and emaciated him to such a dcgiee that he could not even walk without support. He was' then an In and Out- patient in. several hospitals, without deriving any effential benefit, and on his dismission from one of them, was assured that every probable means had been tried, which reduced the unhappy sufferer to a state of despair. ' in this truly deplorable situation he; applied to the Proprietor of LEAKE'S Patent Pill, and to his great surprise, as well as comfort, found himself after taking one box able to walk without support, and in the course of three boxes the pains gradually subsided, the oppression of the stomach was removed, his appetite restored, and his health re- established; insomuch that I he now follows his business with his. usual alacrity, and is in every respect perfectly recovered. N. B. Many others might be referred to for attesta- tion, but it is presumed the cure is too well known to need enumeration of witnesses.— The patient was put under no restraint or confinement during the wholecourse Sold in boxes, of is. 6 d. each, and may he had with proper dirctions sealed up of the printer of this paper To be LET or SOLD, LL that commodious and well accustomed Inn, pleasantly situate in Tweedmouth, with a full view'of the river Tweed, known by the sign of the Crown and Thistle, so long occupied by Mrs Hum- phreys.

Mr Middleton's New Dictionary of Arts and Sciences. Mr Francis Quarks' Emblems first printed about the year 1630, have, been long esteemed, and much ad- mired by the sober, vit{ uous, and pious in every deno- mination. There is not a single circumstance in the human life to which some part of them does not allude; the explanations of the figures are in easy agreeable verse; to each of them is added a striking quotation • from one of the fathers of the Church, and the whole is briefly summed up in. a general inference. The School of the Heart is an excellent performance; as it unfolds all the springs of action in the human niind, and . points out what are. the principles upon which the generality of. mankind act. These excellent pieces have been long out of print, which occasioned their being sold at an exorbitant price tp the great loss of many worthy persons who would have been glad to purchase them. With respect to the present Editions, they exceed all that ever went before; the Cuts are engraved at a vast expence, all the Latin Mottos are translated, so that it will be found one of the most agreeable works that can be offered to the public ; especially to the rising generation. Here they will meet with no distracting controversy-, no doubts concerning religion, but entertainment and improvement will go hand in hand together. % * The . above works are recommended by some re- spectable characters in the Church, and amongst the Dissenters.. This work will absolutely be comprized in ten numbers, making two volumes in nmo. and the pub- lisher will give a promissory note to deliver the overplus gratis.

The several tenants will shew their respective Farms and premifes; and for further particulars, enquire of John Westgarth, of Unthank, Esq; Mr George Hutton, of Sedgefield, Mr Tootell, of Wycliffe; or Mr Joseph Coares, of Westpitts On the Bill for Recruiting the Army. TO abuse Ministers and their measures is the fa- shion of the times. The most salutary law pro- posed by a servant of government is instantly repre- sented replete with mischief, and an infringement on the constitutional liberty of the subject. Let us, for a moment, lay aside the spirit of opposition: let reason, not passion, direct our enquiry. The present Bill for recruiting the army, is a copy of that passed in the year 1757. The late Mr Charles Townshend prepared the Bill, on principles the most just and candid to indi- viduals, and of acknowledged public utility. But left I should be confidered an advocate for oppressive mea- sures, I here insert the descriptive clause on which the entire operation of the Bill depends ; and submit to the impartial judgment of the public, whether anyone solid objection can be raised against the measure. " All able bodied, idle, and disorderly perfons, who cannot, upon examination, prove themselves to excrcise, and industriously follow some lawful trade or employment, or to have some substance sufficient for their support and maintenance, to serve his Majesty as soldiers." I have confidered this clause with some degree of atten- tion, and am free to declare the English language does not admit of words more expressive of the intention, or less subject to be mistaken by the meanest capacity. A great mischief arising from Statute Law is owing to the ignorance or inattention of the framers, in making choice of iuch expressions as admit variety of construc- tiori. In the Bill under consideration, that mischief is guarded against. None can be objects of this law but such as are objects of a well- regulated Police. The. idle and disorderly are not only useless, but dangerous to society To remove them from the possibility of evil is meritorious, and the duty of the civil magiftrate. This will scarcely be denied me. The present Act goes farther ; it renders them serviceable to the public in a variety of instances. The nation must be defended against the common enemy. In forming a defence it is wisdom not to distress the manufacturer. This can only be affected by taking such men into the service as come within the above description. What is the consequencc ? The community is eased of the burthen of maintaining useless members, and those who are inclined to industry, and are employed at the loom and plough, pursue their avocations undisturbed. The equity and candour of the Bill do infinite honour to Government. Men coming under the cognisance of this law, are permitted to enlist voluntarily, and receive the bounty. They are no longer to be soldiers than during the continuance of the war. In whatever point of view we consider this act, it must meet the approbation of every dis- passionate man, and, I trust, when ordered into execu- tion, will be found to anfwer every end proposed by the Legislature.

LONDON, July 1. Letter from Calais lays, " An or- der is put in force here, which may be compared with your prac- tice of pressing seamen.— All those who have ever lived in the capa- city of seamen are registered, and liable to be called upon, even tho'they may have acquired a competence in another way of life. Many respectable characters of this town, who have followed different professions for many late years, are this day ordered to march for Brest; among the number is Mons. Toulier, who has kept the Table Royal, with much credit and suc- cess, many years. He has acquired a great deal of money by his business, but cannot evade the necessity of obeying this summons." . The conduct of Admiral Keppel's fleet appears very mysterious. The Admiral writes home, that he had let a number of French merchantmen pass through the fleet, as not thinking it proper to in- terrupt their commerce; soon after he leaves his station, the Fox immediately takes two French mer- chantmen, and brings them into Portsmouth. Yesterday a Privy Council sat at Whitehall, present the Lord Chancellor, Attorney General, Earl Gower, Lords Notth, Weymouth, Amherst, Germaine, and the Duke of Queensborough; the result of which was laid before his Majesty at St James's in Council, after the Levee was over, by the Lords North, Weymouth, Germaine, & c. Friday fseveral deserters from the Militia were, pursuant to the sentence of the Court Martial', flogged in the face of the camp on CoXheath', Sunday an excellent sermon was preached to the several regiments of militia encamped near Winchester, from St Luke iv. 14. " And the fol- diers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do ? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely, and be content with your wages." Extract of a letter from Warley Camp, June 30. " Lord Amherst reviewed the militia last Satur- day, as well as regulars, who went through their different exercises with the greatest exactness. Alderman Sawbridge, Colonel of ihe Kent militia, has a superb tent, where he lies every night — There is the prospect of the greatest crop of hops in this county known for many years." Portsmouth, June 28. The Licorne and Pallas, the two French frigates taken by Admiral Keppel, arrived yesterday from St Helen's, at Spithead. LONDON, July t. They write from Stockholm, that the govern- ment are going to lay a further duty of three per cent, on all iron exported from that kingdom. The Arethusa, which engaged the French fri- gate, had only 31 guns, 26 twelve pounders, and 6 fix ditto, with 220 men. The Frenchman 44 guns, eighteen and nine pounders, and 340 men. The Belleisle and Fox are ordered on a cruize to protect the homeward- bound Well- India fleet. A large train of Artillery arrived at Warley Common early this morning from Woolwich. The 5th regiment of foot, now encamped at War- ley Common, have received orders to prepare for marching for Portsmouth, to embark on board some ships going on a secret expedition. All deserters from any of the military corps are in future to be sent to the East Indies, or the Coast of Africa for life: this new regulation has been read at the head of every regiment in Great Britain and Ireland by his Majesty's order. At the final close of the poll yesterday for Chamberlain, the numbers stood thus : for Benja- min Hopkins, Esq; 1216, John Wilkes, Esq; 287. Lord Suffolk was yesterday not only not dead but so greatly recovered from his indisposition, that his physicians declared him out of all danger. On Sunday evening a very ludicrous accident happened at Henly upon Thames. A large party from town went after tea to enjoy the coolness of the evening on the banks of the river. Youth and spirits hurried them into such fallies of vivacity, that in running with too much precipitation, 3 lady's foot tripped, and she fell into the Thames. The consternation was general; but how much Was every body surprised to see her swim like a a fishing float, half immersed, and half above wa- ter !— It seems the lady had been furnished with an immoderate sized cork rump, which buoyed her up so completely, that, in the golden age of fiction, she might have passed for a Naiade, or even Venus herself first rising from the water. She was towed to shore by a gentleman's cane, without the least injury but wet petticoats. Newcastle upon Tyne, May 1st, 1778.

VIENNA, June 17. acCcording to the most recent letters from the frontiers of Bohemia, the inhabitants of the bordering places are t0 remove their effects into the interior part of the country, and the officers appointed for the receipt of money also directed to remove the chest which is entrusted to them. These orders, it seems, are the certain fore- runners of a war. Leipsic, June 19. On the 5th, a body of Croats, during the night, endeavoured to surprize on the frontiers an advanced party of our troops; but they met with such a reception as obliged them to retire to Bohemia. A number of Imperia- lists were made prisoners, and conducted to Dres- den. On our side, a Captain of Grenadiers and the Chamberlain Van Hopfgarten an officer of great merit were slain. Berlin, June 20. Prince Charles of Hesse Cas- sel set out yesterday to join the King's army. Paris, June 28. Commissions will be granted in a few days to privateers. The King has given up his share, which is an eighth, to the captors. Hague, June 28. By advices from the Empire we learn, the Austrian and Prussian troops are daily reinforcing; the one on the frontiers of Mo- ravia and Bohemia, the other on those of Silesia. LONDON, July 3. As the conduct of Admiral Keppel, relative to the French frigates, has afforded matter of much speculation, and some newspaper censure, a ma- ritime Correspondent, in justice to that brave Ad- miral, and by way of informing people who speak and write out of their element, has sent us the fol- lowing observations on it:— When one power is at war with another, by the law of nations, the con- tending powers have a right to question all neutral ships relative to their destination, cargo, See. and the reason for this is obvious, because those very ships which appearneutral, may be only so from their colours, which an enemy's fhip has generally on board her of all nations, the better to conceal her designs; nay, if the Captain of the fhip who stops this neutral vessel, cannot be satisfied with what he can find out from the report of the stopt cap- tain and the crew, he has a right to insist on seeing his dispatches; and this list has been practised by several English commanders. Now, in the case of Admiral Keppel, he did no more than instist upon the French Captain's Satisfying him about fuch par- ticulars. The Captain would not be brought up to the Arerbusa to anfwer these questions; conse- quently a gun was fired across the ship to bring him to. This the French Captain construed as an in- dignity ( which was no more than what has been usually done) and returned it by a broad- side; con- sequently the French have begun the war, and Ad- miral Keppel has done no more than is warranted by prudence, and the laws of nations- A letter front a Gentlemen belonging to Admi- ral Keppel's fleet, says, We are all here safe and well at St Helen's, but under such strict orders for holding ourselves ready to sail at a moment's notice, that not even an officer of us is permitted to go on shore, let the occasion be what it may. Oar fu- ture destination is altogether unknown." .,> A gentleman remarked in company, that if the French should invade Scotland, there is not a single regiment of regulars in all that country to defend it; one prefent said, that government knew very well what they were about, and that the French • would never land but where they could at least find provisions. A correfpondent fays, that what Junius has wrote of the late Lord Chatham, is truly verified " Recorded honours shall gather round his tomb and thicken over him." In Berks, Oxford and Buckinghamshire, the quantity of grass has been fo great, that fields, which in the best seasons turned out six loads, have this year produced eight and nine. Portfmouth, July 2. This morning the 50th regi- ment, commanded by Sir Thomas Wilson, em- barked on board several men of war in the harbour, going to join Admiral Keppel's squadron. ' This day arrived the Andromeda, with Gen. Howe on board, from Philadelphia. , LONDON, July 4. , , The Sieur de Sartine, Minister and Secretary of State for the marine department of France, having given the King an account of the engagement of the frigate la Belle Poule, his Majesty has granted to the Sieur de la Clocheterie, who commanded her, a brevet of Captain; to the Sieur de la Roche Kerandraon, Ensign, the Crois of St Louis, and a pension; to the Sieur Bouvet, a brevet of Lieute- nant of a frigate ; and has given' marks of his fa- tisfaction to all the officers and marine guards. , A letter from Dover, dated the 1st inst. says, " An order is sent from the court of France to Dunkirk, signifying that any merchants who will fit their vessels for privateers shall be supplied with guns and warlike stores at the expence of the French King. The above order was lead publicly upon Change there, and is stuck up. Two large flat- bottomed boats are laid down, and 10 other vessels for the government." . Yelterday an eminent merchant in the city re- ceived a letter from Nantz, which mentions the arrival of a ship from America, with the news that three of the colonies, viz. Virginia, Mary- land, and the Massachusets, had come to a reso- lution to address the congress, to send a deputa- tion to confer with the King's Commissioners on the subject of the new conciliatory propositions; and declaring if the congsess persisted in their re- solution of not treating with the Commissioners, that the said three provinces would for themselves fend Delegates to New York, to meet the Cora- missioners, and to open a treaty. The letter was publicly read at Lloyd's, and the names of the pro- posed Delegates were mentioned, and known to be men of large fortune, and moderate principles, . The following are faid to be the names of the five Commissioners who are appointed by the Con- tinental Congress to treat with our Commissioners, if the latter will declare them independent; if not, the rebel Commissioners have instructions to return to Congress: Cha. Carter, of Carirowman, Philip Ludwell Lee Cha. Carrol, of Carrolton, Matthew Tilghman, ~ Adams, — — This advice comes from Paris to Col. Fairfax. A ship just arrived from New York, after a very short passage; brings advice, that the army is all arrived at New York from Philadelphia; . and that Lord Cornwallis is to go to Jamaica with 5000 men. The Commissioners are arrived at New York. But there no hopes of any accommodation, without first acknowledging the independence of America. Report says, that eight Provinces have sent De- puties to the Congress, petitioning them to accede to the conciliatory plan offered by Great Britain; but that the five others are against it. Yesterday Gen. Sir William Howe went to Lord George Germaine, at his house in Pall- mall, with whom he had a conference; the General was af- terwards at Court, and introduced to the King; when the Court broke up he had a conference with his Majesty, till, past five o'clock. Sir William Howe was introduced yesterday to his Majesty by Lord Fauconberg, and met with a most gracious reception.. Sir William Howe was just five weeks on his passage from Philadelphia. When he sailed no advice had been received of the Trident man of war, with the Commissioners on board. Gen. Howe brought only his Secretary with him. .. The court of enquiry on Gen. Burgoyne, it is iiiid, will be held in 14 days, on account of Gen. Howe's arrival, who is to be present. The British army in America were apprized of the French Rescript, and made no doubt that a declaration of war had taken place in Europe, and that an expedition was to be prepared immediate- ly, after the arrival of the army at New York, under the command of a Major- General, against the French West India Islands. A superb entertainment called the MESCHIAN- ZA, was given by some officers of the army to their General, the Hon. Sir William Howe, before his departure for England. The various amuser ments consisted of a Regatta, Fete Champetre, with tilts and tournaments, and a procession thro' two triumphal arches, constructed with naval and military attributes and their devices, succeeded by a grand exhibition of fire- works, and a ball; the whole concluded with a sumptuous entertainment prepared for the occasion, in a magnificent room of 180 feet in length, with 400 covers, illuminated with lustres and branches consisting of 700 tapers; the company attended by mutes in oriental dresses. The tickets for admission, were ornamented with the emblems of war— a setting sun, with the words, Luceo descendens, aucto splendore resurgam. And a- the top of the ticket these words, Vive, vale. All ranks of people exerted themselves in shew- ing. the greatest respect for General Howe. The army after quitting Philadelphia, began their march, through Jersey, for New York. Lord Howe having received advice of Count d'Estaign's destination, has collected his force to- gether to receive him, and as Admiral Byron has orders to sail to the immediate assistance of that able Commander, it is hoped we shall receive a satisfactOry account of the Toulon fleet. Wednesday Lord Sandwich arrived from Ports- mouth, where he had been to give instruitions for some more men of war to join Admiral Keppel's fleet. . His Lordship was yesterday at Court, and had a conference with his Majesty. When Admiral Keppel sailed from Spithead he had zi ships of the line, since which he has been joined by the Bienfaisant of 64, and the following ships are to be added to his fleets viz. the Formida- ble of 90, the Vengeance, Centaur, and Terrible, of 74, and the Defiance of 64, at Portsmouth, with the Duke of 90,. now ready in Plymouth Sound- It is somewhat remarkable, that Admiral Kep- pel found on board each of the French prizes written orders, not to molest that useful naviga- tor, Capt. Cook, on any account whatever; all which orders were signed Sartine. The Danae letter of marque, fitted out at Dept- ford two years since, is arrived in the river from the West Indies, where she has made prizes of four- teen vessels, to the value of 33,000!. ExtraCt of a letter from Chelmsford, July 1. " A gentleman of Baddow is just arrived here, by whom we learn, that being at Paris on a visit ( which place he left on the 28th ult.) an order was issued immediately, on the news of the late en- gagements between some of Admiral Keppel's fri- gates and the French ships, for every Englishman resident there to depart, and likewise from all other ports of France, alter an hour's notice;, he adds, that war is to be declared without delay." COXHEATH. SINCE the late dispatches from Admiral Keppel, not an Officer of any kind of rank, from the subaltern to the Colonel, can leave the camp without special licence from General Keppel. , The Marquees are not yet arrived from London, though the Camp now consists of 11000 men. The Officers, without distinction, He on trusses of draw, in a small tent, called a horseman's tent; and though many of them with for the soft beds, and agreeable lounge. of London, not a man of them openly complains. Such is the powerful impression of example! It must be owned, to the credit of most of the superior Officers, many of whom are of the first rank, that they conform, to all kinds of military exercises, with an alacrity and precision that do them great honour. -' The spectators are just beginning to come from Lon- don ; and some families are already arrived, hut they i are likely to. pay dear for their curiosity, as a little | house, with two or three rooms meanly furnished, lets I from four to five guineas per week. If you expostulate 1 with the landlords, all their answer is, " Camp time, j Camp time." Provisions, as well as accommodations, are rising in proportion. ; WASHINGTON ST AITH, May 20th, 1778. WHereas Thomas Milburn, Richard Middle- ton Edward Brown, and Daniel Douglass, bound Pitmen to the Owners of Washington Colliery, have absented themselves from their work at the said Colliery without leave : It is therefore desired that no person or persons will harbour or employ the said workmen 1 above- named; and in case they do, Notice is hereby 1 given, that they will be prosecuted as the law directs.

WILLIAM HARBOTTLE, Hexham, JOHN FRYER, June 20th, 1778. , JOHN SWINBURN. a To the P R I N T E R. AGreat deal has been said about the naval armament at Brest, in order to alarm our fellow subjects, as if an invasion of this country required nothing more i than a favourable wind for three hours, and could be performed as easily as commanded. It would greatly contribute to quiet the minds of the people, if they were to read Lord Bolingbroke's sentiments upon this subject, , expressed in the. Craftsman, which is now in the hands of so very few, I shall beg the favour of you to give to the public the following extracts from No. 340 of that most excellent paper. , A TRUE BRITON. « NOBODY can be ignorant that the necessary pre- parations for an effectual invasion of this island take up a great deal of time, and require such a number Of ships, both for transports and convoys, that all Eu- rope must be fast asleep if it should pass unobserved. It is well known that the spanish Armada ( at that time the terror of the world) consisted but of 18OOO men; and it is still fresh in our memory, that King William brought over, but 14,000 in six or 700 ships; so that nothing but the egregious indolence, or even foolish- ness, can ever expose us to such. an attempt, without some warning and time for defence. " This seems to have been the case of the late King James, who, very happily for us, paid no regard to all the repeated advices from France, concerning the Prince of Orange's design, and could not be induced to believe it, till the Prince declared his intentions himself, and was preparing 10 set sail from Holland. " As to King James's fleet lying Wind- bound in the mouth of the Thames, when the Prince of Orange sailed by, it hath been much doubted.- whether our deliverer was not, at least, as much obliged to the affections of the officers and seamen who composed that fleet, as to the winds, for his passage to Torbay, without any molestation. " But however that, affair might stand, it is certain that such a disposition might be made of our fleet, upon any apprehensions of danger that it would he exceed- ingly difficult for any considerable squadron to escape us. The Spanish invasion of Scotland in the last reign, with an army of 30o men, is so very ridiculous a proof of our insecurity, that I am ashamed to take any fur- ther notice of it. " But let us suppose that a foreign power should con- jure up a great naval armament, all on a sudden, with- out any body's notice, and find means to steal into England, by the assistance of a dark night, or a fa- vourable wind, yet I should be glad to know what they are to do when they get here; for though they might land upon us in such a clandestine manner, I pre4 sume it would not be altogether so easy for them to sculk back again, or a very difficult matter for us to in- tercept their supplies. " Suppofe, then, that 20,000 men, of which very few can be horse, are landed in England, without any human probability of being supplied from abroad; this army can never march 10 miles into the country ; for they cannot put themselves in a marching posture in less than a fortnight or three weeks, and by that time we may have 100,000 ' militia drawn down upon them whereof 10,000 shall be horse, and as many dragoons as we please; and if this militia does nothing else but drive the country, cut off their foragers and stragglers, possess themselves of the defiles, and intercept provi- ions, their army must be destroyed in a short time. " If this reasoning is just in any degree, and it was never yet answered, what danger can we possibly appre- hend from such an invasion, when our militia is backcd with a body of several thousand regular troops; besides a sufficient number to man our garrisons, and secure Scotland. " This was the opinion of the great Duke of Marl- borough, who declared, upon a very important Occa- sion, that he would undertake to defeat any body of men which could possibly be landed upon us by surprise, with only his own regiment of guards, two or three regiments of dragoons, and such a train of. artillery as he could easily draw out against them; whereas they could not possibly bring any with them of any conse- quence Besides, it ought to be considered, that, hav- ing no fortified towns to secure themselves till people could come in to jotn them, it would be impossible for them to stand long against such a force. " King William, indeed, found an easy passage through all these obstacles by a wonderful concurrence of incidents in his favour. Yet even all these might uo; have been sufficient, if the way had not been paved for him by that well grounded disaffection: which had spread itself so generally amongft all ranks of people, not only in town and country, in the camp, the fleet, and the court, but amongst his favourites, his relations, and even his very . children themselves." FAREWELL the scythe, the sickle and the plough, Farewell the nymph, but with a lover's vow; Farewell to rustic toil and awkward gait, ' Tis honour calls, and to defend the state. ' Tis British courage fires with martial zeal, For Britain's sons will fight for Britain's weal ( Let France her legions boast, make naval brags, Courageous Britons will- pull down her flags. Militia courage, with a nerve strung arm, Shall save Britannia from intended harm. While British tars will curb cach vain conceit, And shew what Frenchmen are, that would be great, " Stand firm, my boys," the hardy sailor cries, " We'll bravely fight," the. martial shout replies. United thus the tar and warlike baud, Resolve to die, or save a threaten'd land. W. ANECDOTE of the late Captain ( known by the name of mad) Montague. WHEN the above brave Officer commanded his Majesty's fhip the Bristol, of Co guns, meeting with a. French man of war at sea, of 74 guns; he ran along side of her, poured his whole broadside into Monsieur, grappled him, and then, told him to strike im- mediately, or ( he swore) he would set his own ship on fire, and they should both go to hell together; when the Frenchman, perhaps not being prepared for so precipi- tate a voyage, immediately hauled down the Gallic flag Sound List of the 20th ult.— Wind N.

It is still generally believed hat our court will observe an exact neutrality in the present circumstances, and not interfere direct- ly or indirectly in the affairs of the English colonies. Ratisbon, June 20. According to a calculation made of the respective forces, which the powers on the point of becoming belligerent have on foot in Germany, they amount to 600,000 men. _ Cologn, Jnne 26. Letters from Ratisbon, ad- vise, that the Baron de Schwartzenau, minister of Brandenbourg to the diet of the empire, had re- ceived orders to declare, " That the King his matter, after having tried every conciliatory me- thod to engage the Emperor to evacuate Bavaria, and not having succeeded therein, found himself under the necessity of employing the forces he had on foot for the security of the Germanic consti- tution, & c." Hague, June 30. Several letters from the em- pire confirm the account of the minister of Bran- denbourg having received orders to make a decla- ration to the diet \_ See the above article from Co » hgn~] and that it was to be delivered on the very day that Prince Henry of Prussia put in march from Berlin at the head of his army, which will probably be transmitted to future times as a most remarkble epoch in the annals of Germany. Vienna, June 30. A report prevails here, that his Prussian Majesty hath demanded of the Empress of Russia 60,000 men stipulated in the treaty con- cluded last year between Berlin and Petersburgh. LONDON, July 7- Extract of a Letter from New York, May 13. " We are informed from Connecticut, that one of the regiments of that province, commanded by Col. Megg, had mutinied, which occasioned two " battalions to be sent for, who fired upon them, killed seven, and wounded thirty This corps has been long suspected of disloyalty to the 13 stripes." Some overtures have been made within these few days on the part of France, by means of a fo- reign Secretary now here, for establishing peace. The destination of the Toulon fleet is Boston; Count d'Estaing's instructions are merely defensive, nnd to assist America only in case of any attack be- ing made on that City. The St Lawrence, Capt. Abbot, from Halifax, is arrived at Dover; she sailed the nth of June. Capt. Abbot spoke with Admiral Byron on the 24th of June, near the Western Islands, all well; he told him he was in pursuit of the French fleet. A letter from Halifax, Nova Scotia. May 9, says, Wednefday arrived his Majesty's ship Expe- riment, from the Delaware, and has taken the Portsmouth, an American privateer, mounting 24 guns, and 1 50 men. General Grant has sailed from America with a detached army of 6000 men, for the reinforcement of the garrison on the island of Jamaica. The King's army 011 their march from Philadel- phia, through the Jerseys, to New York, was attended by a number of the inhabitants, who did not chuse to stay after they left it. The evacuating Philadelphia was not a matter of necessity but of choice; the intention offending over the Commissioners being formally announced, and the appointment of a deputation ( though the Congress should refuse to treat) being positively resolved on by many different colonics, it was thought advisable to withdraw the troop's, at once to evince the candour and sincerity of our propo- sals, and to remove all grounds for distrust. We hear that the following are the terms which the Commissioners from the Congress are desired to insist on from the Commissioners of Great Bri- tain: 1st, An acknowledgment of Independency. 2d, A withdrawing of the troops. And 3dly, An Inhibition on our side to declare war against France on account of her signing the Convention with Ame- rica. As soon as these points arie yielded, then the Commissioners will sign a peace with Great Bri- tain, and establish a treaty of reciprocal commerce. It is confidently asserted that fresh instructions will be immediately sent out to the Commissioners to treat with the Congrefs as independent states. Though there is not a formal breach between Mr Washington and the congress, yet there is a want of cordiality. He will not co- operate with them in all their measures, and they know not how to enforce them. They disapprove his con- duct dare not avow it:— Washington has fixed principles, from which he will not recede. An order is given that the ships and vessels of the royal navy do until further notice, salute each other with cheers only, and not with guns, ss heretofore; but that the usual salutes be con- tinued to be made to all ships belonging to foreign princes and states in amity with his Majesty. The above order is in confederation of the great quan- tity of powder usually expended in salutes, and which cannot at this time be conveniently spared. According to the rules of the navy, an English frigate is compelled to fight a French man of war of 40 guns, an English 40 a French 50, an English 50 a 64, an English 64 a 74, and an English 74 the largest ship that swims the seas. It is said, that in the course of this summer a new regiment of light dragoons is to be raised, to be called the Queen's regiment; their uniforms are to be green and gold. This day at noon an express arrived at Ports- mouth, with an account that the Leeward Island feet were all safe off the Isle of Wight. The Jamaica fleet, hourly expected, is the lar- gest that has sailed from that port for some years. The fears of their being, taken last week raised sugars 57 per cent. The regiments of militia' that are encamped at Winchester, are the. following, in the order they rank as to precedency, viz. No. 12, West Kent; 19, Wiltshire; 22, South- Gloucestershire ; 30 Dor- setshire; 38, Lancashire 40, Staffordshire This camp is now without any regulars.- A Bill is preparing for the next Irish Sessions of Parliament, requiring that all officiating priests of the Romish persuasion in that kingdom, shall be natives of a, take the oath of allegiance, have a licence ( or performing the ceremony of the mass, and wear black, or dark blue cloaths. Earl Mansfield has now presided at the King's, Bench as Chief Judge twenty- two years, having been called up to that honour and peerage in the month of September, 1756, on the death of Sir Dudley Ryder, which is longer than any of his predecessors on record ever sat there.- Saturday the several depositions on the part of the Earl P— cy, in a libel for a divorce against his . Lady, were read in the Consistory Court of Doc- tors Commons, which were deemed of so substan- nature that Dr Bettesworth pronounced im- 3cot, I mediately for a divorce. . Portsmouth, July 3. Arrived the Susannah, Scot from Newcastle ; Capt. Stiles, of his Majesty's cutter, Roebuck, went on board her in Stokes Bay, and found concealed under her coals 30a small casks of liquor, and " above isoolb. of tea, for which she is seized and brought in here, with the above goods. Arrived at Spithead ( taken by the Fox frigate) the Bon Jesus Defam, and N. S. de Schuldad, Capt. Doningode de Oliveire, from Amsterdam for Oporto, with 160 barrels of gunpowder and arms on board; most of her papers the Captain sunk on the approach of the Fox. A letter from Portsmouth, dated July 6, says, " This morning arrived at St Helen's, the Fox fri- gate, Capt. Windsor, with two more prizes; one an Irish wherry from Nantes, laden with tobacco and spirit, on a contraband trade; the other a Dutch ship from St. Eustatia bound to Holland. The Fox was chased by a French 74 gun ship, which she outsailed. " Went out of harbour, and joined Admiral Keppel's fleet, the Vengeance of 64 guns, Capt. Clements; Defiance, 64 guns, Capt.

Saturday, at Stagshaw Bank fair, there was a large shew of black cattle, which sold low, and it is computed at acs. 1 head less than at the Whit- sun fair. The shew of horses was very indifferent, and also sold low; there were great quantities of sheep and lambs, which sold high at first, but fell in price considerably before the fair was over. Linen cloth, of which there was a great quantity, sold very reasonably A Captain of a ship arrived at Whitby from the Greenland fishery gives an account that the fishery has turned out but very indifferent, owing to the tempestuous weather on the coasts.

HELFT'S POWDER for taking ink spots or iron moulds out of linen, lawns, muslins, and laces, has from eleven year's experience been found the only salutary thing ever invented for the above purpose. Mrs Long, at her perfume shop, in the Old Pullen- market, near the Post- house, Newcastle, has convinced every lady who ap- plied to her, of its utility, by taking out any spot before them even upon the richest lace, and it was never known to damage the linen; and as ( he has lately tried it upon SilK and ScARLET CLOTH, and found it effectually to answer its purpose, re- commends it for taking spots out of either.
