VOL. I XI. MONDAY, Auguft 12, 1782. THURSDAY'S POST. This Day arrived the Mails from France and Flanders. Vienna, July 23. fJOGOGIOOOK LIKE Henry VIII. of England, our W glorious monarch will find his zeal for the reformation of abuses in the Romish church, and his endeavours TK ? K to dispel those clouds of superstition with which the priests have ob- structed the progress of true reli- gion and rational piety, amply re- warded. There was found in the monastery of the Carmelites in our suburbs, lately suppressed, the sum of two millions of florins, [ 200,000l. sterling] which those good Monks, who affect the most extreme in- difference to the riches of this world, had amassed by ' selling Carmelite water. The Emperor agreeably to his taste for simplicity in divine worship, has ordered the church of Luxem- bourg to be divested of a great number of its statues and images. His Majesty went there the other day to hear Mass, and as he arrived late, he knelt down among the crowd ; thereby shewing to the people, that he was well perswaded, that at church, as well as in Paradice, all places are equal, when the heart is sincere in its devotion to the Deity. He did the same a little time ago in a church in one of our suburbs. The lands, which the Carthusians of Kalemberg possessed, have been sold for 200,000 florins [ 2o, oool] to the Prince d'Esterhazy. Paris, July 30. The Spaniards are to return to Cadiz the 15th of August, where will be eight more ships of the line ready to join the fleet. Our whole naval force will follow them, as soon as they have taken their provisions and water on board, for which purpose they are every day expected into Brest. When our fleets have formed a junction, they are to cover the siege of Gibraltar, which the English can never think of interrupting, at the risk of an engage- ment against 50 sail of the line, at 300 leagues distance from their own coasts. According to letters from the camp before Gibral- tar, the Duc de Crillon had made an offer to Gover- nor Elliot of some fresh provisions for his table. The English Governor returned thanks to the Duke for his polite offer r but he could not accept it ; as it was no less his inclination than his duty to confine himself to share the lot of his brave garrison, and be as temperate as they. The Prince of Asturias never speaks but with the highest veneration of the brave defender of the pillars of Hercules. This siege will be one of the most memorable events of the age we live in. The Emperor of Morocco has intimated his desire of being present at the grand assault, and his Catholic Majesty has most willingly given his consent; in return the African Monarch hath made a present to the besiegers of 8000 oxen. Every thing announces that the de- fence will be as vigorous as the attack ; for from the Observatory, which the Duke caused to be erected, It is perceived that the preparations making by the English are immense. LONDON, Tuesday, August 6. Extract of a letter from Algesires, July 17. " Activity seemed to be a stranger in our camp be- fore Gibraltar,' ' till the Duke de Crillon assumed the command : since that period the whole camp is daily in motion ; the General is on horseback at six in the morning, and passes his time between the workmen and the troops under arms, directing the former, and exercising the latter in those evolutions which he fore- sees may be necessary in forming the grand attack, for - which he cannot be ready, after all his care, before the 20th of August. The oldest soldier in the world never beheld such an immense train of artillery at any siege, as we have here; there are at prefent, three batteries in forwardness, of 9 guns each, 54 pounders, for battering one particular part of the fortress, the fire to be angular, and to prevent the besieged from having a spot to stand on in safety in that quarter, there are vast ovens for heating balls, which are to be sent red- hot into the garrison, in hopes of setting fire to the powder brought out of the magazines for the supply of the different batteries of the besieged. It is the intention of our General, as soon as every thing is ready for commencing the most dreadful fire that ever was directed againlt any fortress, to send a flag to Go- vernor Elliott, to offer him the most honourable terms, if he will surrender the place; but it is not ex- pected that the English Commander will listen to any terms, ' till he is reduced to the last extremity ; his past conduct makes us look for a desperate resistance on his part; and we are all ready to do him the justice to think, that when he does surrender, it will be after having made the most gallant defence. " The Duke, though he expects a refusal to his summons, is nevertheless determined to send it, that he may not be answerable for the carnage that must ensue, if Gibraltar should be stormed. Strong as that fortress is at present, there is a moral certainty that it must fall, tho' the garrison should be even twice as numerous as it is; it is impossible that any garrison can long bear the fatigue consequent upon an inces- sant firing, day and night, from some hundreds of mortars ; we therefore look for the fall of Gibraltar, not more from the execution of our artillery, than from the exhausted state into which the garrison must be thrown by continual watchings, and endless labours in endeavouring to restore their demolished works. So certain are we of success, that the govern- ment of Gibraltar is already promised to the Duke of Medina- Sidonia. The old idea of undermining the rock, and blowing it up, is renounced as impracti- ble." Gen. Elliott's last dispatches mention, that the fatigues the men endure from their close attendance to duty, inevitably prevents him, till he can get a supply of men, from giving the enemy any interrup- tion in the carrying on of their works. He says, that since the last effectual sally which he made, they have been cautious; for that instead of having their grand camp at the distance of four miles from their works, they have now contrived it to be within half a mile of their engineers, which makes any attempt in the garrison of Gibraltar to disturb them, very dangrerous. ' The re- enforcements for the garrison of Gibraltar consist of the tw0 Hanoverian battalions now at Ply- mouth, and recruits for all the regiments at Gibraltar, consisting in the whole of 2000 men, who are to em- bark on board the men of war. On Wednesday landed on South Sea Common, Portsmouth, the Count de Grasse, where carriages had been procured by Vice- Admiral Sir Peter Parker, who conducted him to the George ; a most sumptuous dinner having been prepared for him and his suite by Sir Peter Parker, who, with the liberality of a prince, and the hospitality of a true born Englishman, pre- ferring the credit and honour of his country to the happiness of seeing his family, ( after a seven years absence in the service of the King) entertained him, and his officers, at his own expence, until the Count had permission to go to London, which was not till Friday morning, when he set off with his suite, at- tended by the Admiral, who had previously sent an express to the George at Godalming to prepare din- ner and beds, and on Saturday morning pursued their route to Mrs. Nugent's ( the mother of Lady Parker) in Queen's- square, Westminster, where another ex- press had been sent to prepare for their reception. Indeed it must be acknowledged, the bravery of the Count, added to his noble deportment and affability of his manners, justly entitles him to the civility and respect of the British nation. On Saturday Count de Grasse dined at the house of Lady Parker, mother of Sir Peter Parker, and con- tinued there for the rest of the day. Yesterday morn- ing he walked through the Park, from Queen's square to the house of Lord Harrington, where he sat at the windows, from which he had an opportunity of see- ing the crouds that were drawn into the Park by the fine day. The Count was drest in the French naval uniform, but agreeable to the etiquette, without his sword. The interview between him and Lord Rod- ney must have furnished an admirable hint for a ca- ricature. The contrast between his figure and that of Lord Rodney might have been brought into a print, intitled, The National Character Reversed.— He is tall, corpulent, and florid as an Englishman-.- Lord Rodney as lean and short as a Frenchman, When his Majesty heard of the arrival of the Count de Grasse at the Royal Hotel, he sent a polite message, informing him that an apartment was ready at St. James's for his reception, if he chose it ; to which the Count returned a grateful acknowledgment, thanking his Majesty for his offer, but he was so partial to his present apartments that he wished to retain them. The Count is about six feet four inches high, of an athletic person, fine manly carriage, and of a noble aspect. He appears remarkably cheerful, and is very fond of walking about. Yesterday as Count de Grasse was walking through Pall- Mall, he was accidentally met by an honest Jack Tar, who, eying the Count from head to foot, ex- claimed; D e, he is a fine fellow—- aye, and a brave one too, and fought like an Englishman: What say you, My lads ( addressing the crowd that gathered round) my shall we give him three cheers. The Count took off his hat very graciously, and walked on, seemingly de- lighted with this public testimony, void of flattery, which his enemies even give to his military prowess and valour. Yesterday fome difpatches were received from Charles- Town, South- Carolina, brought over in the Fame armed ship, Capt. Morgan, arrived in the Downs. From the SOUTH- CAROLINA GAZETTE Charles- Town, June 1. Yesterday arrived here the brig Mercury, laden with coffee, cotton, and sugar in 14 days from Port- au- Prince, bound for Philadel- phia, but taken by his Majesty's sloop of war Fury on the 27th of last month, in latitude 29 deg. N. The prize brings accounts of 21 sail of the French line having arrived at Cape Francois, some of them in a very shattered condition ; and that the French ship which sunk in the action with Admiral Rodney was Le Valiant, not La Diademe, as was first said A circumstance is added, the mentioning of which is distressing to humanity, that the whole crew of Le Valiant, which sunk in the action, were drowned. Baltimore, ( Maryland) May 14. A number of small privateers, five of which are said to be armed barges, manned principally by desperate refugees, now infest our bay, and greatly annoy our commerce. Three of them lately captured an armed boat from Annapo lis, under Capt. Grayson's command, near the Tan gier Islands, after a sharp contest, in which this brave Captain and several of his men lost their lives, after performing signal acts of valour. Annapolis, ( Maryland) May 16. In the House of Delegates, May 15, 1782. Rivington's Royal Gazette of the 8th instant an nouncing the arrival of Sir Guy Carleton at New York, as a Commissoner for making peace or war in North America; the dissolution of the late British Ministry, and the appointment of a new Administra tion ; and the draught of a bill brought into the Bri tish Parliament to enable the King of Great Britain to conclude a peace or truce with the United States ( by the appellation of the revolted Colonies) being laid before the house and read, Resolved unanimously, That it is the opinion of this house, that peace with Great- Britain and all the world is an object truly desirable, but that war, with all its calamities, is to be preferred to national dishonour and that it is the sentiment of this house, that any ne gociation for peace or truce, not agreeable to the al liance with France, is inadmissible; that every danger ought to be encountered, every event hazarded, ra- ther than fully our national character, or violate, in the least degree, our connexion with our great and good ally ; and that good faith, gratitude, and safety, forbid any treaty with Great Britain, but in conjunc- tion with France, or with her consent first- obtained. Resolved unanimously, That this House will exert the power of the state to enable Congress to prose- cute the war, until Great Britain renounce all claim of sovereignty over the United States, or any part thereof, and until their independence be formally, or tacitly, assured by the treaty with Great Britain, France, and the United States, which shall terminate the war. W. HARWOOD, Clerk. Extract of a letter from Dover, August 4. " Arrived the ship Lord Germain, Capt. William Thouburne, in six weeks, from Charles- Town, South- Carolina. In her Lieutenant- Colonel Macpherson, of the 71ft, Lieutenant Wynyard, of the 33d, and Lieutenant Sir Egerton Leigh, of the 37th regiment, came passengers, and by her we have the following intelligence : " That on the 17th of June, 36 sail of transports, nder convoy of a 50 gun ship and three frigates, had rrived off Charles- Town Bar, from New- York, and sailed from thence the 22d, for Savannah, for the purpose of carrying off that garrison and that of St. Augustine. That a brig had arrived on the 21st at Charles Town from Savannah, by which a merchant in that town received a letter from his correspondent, acquainting him, that the merchants and principal inhabitants, on hearing of the evacuation of the pro vince of Georgia, waited on the Governor and Bri- gadier- General Clarke, to request permission to apply_, to General Wayne, in order to try if they could pro- cure any terms for the security and preservation of their properties and effects, which being granted them, they sent a deputation from their number, with a flag to the rebel General, who returned them for answer, That should the British garrison eventually effect an evacuation, the persons and properties of such inhabitants who chuse to remain in Savannah, will be protected by the military, and resigned inviolate into the hands of the civil authority, which must ultimately decide. Given at head- quarters, at Sharron, June 17, 1782. " ANTHONY WAYNE, B. B. " Commanding in Georgia." " That the inhabitants and merchants having sent a second flag out, Gen. Wayne, at the desire of the civil authority, sent them for answer, " That the merchants, not owing allegiance to the United " States, will be permitted to remain a reasonable time, to dispose of their goods, and settle their af- fairs. This is as far as General Wayne can en- gage." Major Habersham, who was charged with the last message, pledged himself, that they might rely, with the utmost confidence, on the terms pro- mised them. Dispatches were received yesterday at the Right Hon. Thomas Townshend's office at Whitehall, from Gen. Carleton, at New- York. They contain the ac- curate particulars of the negotiation lately entered into with the Congress, and the ultimate decision of that assembly upon it. It appears that Sir Guy had found means to bring over several members of that body to his interest, and among the number had in- duced Sir James Jay, their late president, who, it is supposed was tempted by very powerful reasons to alter his former opinions, and become an ad- vocate for a separate peace with England. Matters were in a train of promising expectation, he says, at one time, and he was in actual hopes that the preli- minai to a negotiation would have been agreed to, when an un- looked- for impediment took place, arising from a new convention of the inhabitants, who stile themselves Loyalists, and who have chosen Governor Franklin, nephew to Dr. Franklin, their commander. Their frequent excursions into parts of the country, where they commit the greatest depredations, such as setting fire to houses, & c. and particularly their affair of executing Capt. Huddy, induced Congress, in their first answer to Sir Guy Carleton's requisi- tions, to demand, in the most peremptory manner of him, to demolish and put an end to the Board, con- stituting and stiling themselves American Loyalists. This Sir Guy has transmitted to Government, at the same time informing the Secretary of State, that it was impossible for him to comply with these terms, as he represents the body of Loyalists to be in such force as to render a quarrel with them very dangerous on the part of this country ; and adds, that, from the greatness of their numbers, any offence against them might very much endanger New- York itself. On Saturday Government received some dispatches from Quebec, brought over in the King George, Capt. Whitfield. She sailed from thence the 7th of July, and brings advice that the London fleet, which sailed from Spithead the 2d of May, under convoy of the Assistance, of 50 guns, Captain Worth, being ar- rived in the river St. Lawrence; and she likewise brings intelligence of the arrival of the Cork fleet, which sailed from thence the 27th of April,, under convoy of the Daedalus, of 32 guns, Capt. Pringle. These fleets were very valuable, and great apprehen- sions were entertained by the merchants for their safety ; as certain advices had been received that Paul Jones, with his squadron of privateers, had left his station in the West- Indies, on purpose to attempt the interception of them ; but Government having been apprized of it, ordered an additional number of fri- gates on that station, which frustrated his intentions. Nathaniel Smith, Esq; is chosen deputy chairman of the East- India Company for the remainder of the year, by a considerable majority. It is finally settled, that Governor Hastings is not to be recalled, and that all the proceedings against the Eslt- India delinquents shall not be resumed; but in- stead of that process, that a new plan shall be laid be- fore Parliament, in which all past offences shall be pardoned, and provisions only made to prevent rapa- city, defalcation, and cruelty for the time to come. That towards this great and desirable object the system of Asiatic policy shall undergo a total change, and the government of the East be taken altogether out of the hands of the Company, and vested in those of the Crown ; that the management of the commerce of In- dia only shall be left to the Directors in Leadenhall- street; but the sole appointment of all the great officers, as well as the formation of all measures of state, ne- cessary either for the collection of the territorial reve- nues, or the preservation of our possessions, shall be vested solely in the Crown. All the capital ships of war now building are or- dered to be finished with the utmost dispatch ; up- wards of 500 shipwrights are put on the Impregna- ble, of 90 guns, at Deptford- yard, to compleat her as fast as possible. We hear from Leeds, that it appeared on examin- ing the Cloth- Searcher's account, at the sessions at Bradford last week, that there had been manufactured in that neighbourhood, within the last three months, no lefs than 36,210 pieces of broad woollen cloths, a greater quantity, by several thousand pieces, than were ever manufactured before in the same space of time. Wednesday last came on at Newcastle, before Lord Chief Baron Skinner,' and a most respectable special Jury, the great tithe cause between the Duke of Port- land, and the Rev. Mr. Smallridge, rector of Bothalj when, after a full hearing, the jury gave a verdict in favour of his Grace, to the satisfaction of the whole court. The two pirates Ryan and M'Carthy, condemned in March last, and who have been in prison upwards of eighteen months, have received his Majesty's par- don. On Saturday a man brought his wife and a soldier before the Lord- Mayor at the Mansion- House, and told his Lordship that he went home unexpectedly, and found the soldier in a very indecent situation with his wife, and that he wanted the soldier to be punished; and to get quit of wife ; his Lordship told him it was a matter that did not lie before him, but it belonged to the Ecclesiastical Court to determine the affair. " My Lord ( says the husband) I have no money, and there- fore I must determine it myself;" then taking his wife by the shoulders bid her follow the soldier, and carry the knapsack, for she should not live with him any more, and turned her out of the Justice- room, which occasioned much merriment among the persons present. Extract of a letter from Fraustadt, in Poland, dated June 26. " A duel has been fought in our neighbourhood, the circumstances of which are rather remarkable The two champions were Comte Gurowski, eldest son to the Castellan of Gnesen, and the young Lord of Bolesz, who had treated the former in a manner that could not be put up with by any man of honour. The 15th inst. was the day appointed for the awful meeting on the frontiers of Silesia. On the 13th the young Comte arrived here with his second, and, the next day, went to a neighbouring Lord, Colonel Schlichting, requesting he would grant an asylum for the conqueror, and honour the combatants with his presence ; this was readily assented to. Comte Gu- rowski repaired to the sign of the Hondpas, where he. was to meet his rival, He there found his uncle's phy- sician, surgeon, and chaplain, together with a great concourse of the nobility, to whom he was presented by the said Colonel. About ten, Col. Madalinski, se- cond to the other combatant, made his appearance, with the news that Lord Bolelz could not be there be- fore eleven, and wished to have an interview with his antagonist; but this was refused by the Comte's friends. At a little after eleven the young Lord ar- rived, accompanied by several people of the first rank, some in coaches, others on horseback, and the Starost Pursimski, as his other second. After the usual com- pliments, the ground was measured by the seconds, and each stand marked by a sword fixed in the ground. The pislols were then loaded ; when a dispute arose about the first fire, the Comte waving his claim, as being the in- jured party.— At last it was agreed that they should together. Lord Bolesz miffed, but received the ball of his antagonist in the forehead, just above the eye, and fell to the ground. The Comte took of the wound- ed a most affectionate farewell, and tenderly recom- mended him to the care of the surgeon : the latter re fused to perform any operation till he could get more assistance ; so that nothing was done till the next day, 16th, when it appeared, that although the brain was untouched, the skull had been greatly fractured ; two splinters were instantly extracted, but the patient did not live to have the third taken out; he expired on the 17th, early in the morning. The father and uncle of the survivor having applied to his Polish Ma- jesty for a pardon, it was the more readily granted, as the deceased had been the aggressor; and Comte Gurowski is already set out on his way to Warsaw." Married. Thursday, at St. George's, Hanover- square, William Hoskins, Esq; of North Perrot, So- merset, to Miss Addington, third daughter of Dr. Addington. STAMP OFFICE LONDON, JULY 11, 1782.

HEREAS JOHN TURNER, of Harn- hill, in the County of Glocester, to display his Im- potence, Inserted an Advertisement in the last Week's Glo- cester Journal, saying, that I had reported that he robbed my Shop of six Dozen ot Stockings; which he says is entirely false, threatening to prosecute any Person who shall accuse him of the same. The Word Prosecution sounds, no Doubt, very alarming, from the Mouth of a Cobler, who spins and cards the greatest Part of his Time. True it is, that the said John Turner was taken to Justice on very strong Suspicion of being an Accomplice in feloniously taking out or my Shop, twenty- six Pair of Stockings, nor did he before the said Justices bring any lawful Witnesses to confute the Suspicion ; but I had the good Fortune to find the Stockings again, and very lucky on his Part, not quite near enough to him. But as he has made such a Pother about his Character, I will here give the Public ] a concise, but true Account of some of his Behaviour, that " they may judge whetner or no this Man stands in Danger of losing what he never was possessed of. What shall HE he called, who elopes from a Wife and six small Children, and that in Time of Sickness, leaving them to be maintained by the Parish, and going to some other Na- tion ( according to his own Account, America) and there stay- ing 12 or 14 Years, and returning with another Woman he called his Wife ? What can an impartial Judge call this Man ? Very likely it might pass for Honesty in the Country he lately came from, but I hope not in England. Ampney Cruris, August 7. was tried in which Mr. Osborn was I A I plaintiff, and one Bobby, defendant; I I the action was brought to recover sa- tisfaction for the loppings of pollard trees and quick fences, cut and sold by the defendant off a farm which he held as a tenant at will; the learned judge, before whom the cause was tried, was clearly of opinion, that such a tenant has not any legal right to the loppings or fences upon his farm, for any other purpose than for his reasonable use on such farm, and not for sale ; and a verdict was accordingly found for the plaintiff, with full da- mages. Stowmarket, Aug 5. At a numerous meeting of the county of Suffolk held this day, it was unani- mously agreed to build a ship of 74 guns as a present to Government. The company present were Lord Cornwallis, Sir Gerard Van Neck, the two Members of the county, and Sir Charles Davers, who subscribed 500I. each ; the Sheriff, John Freere, John Golding, Efq; & c. & c. were 300I. each, and many of 100I. each. Such laudable examples we hope will inspire other counties to do the like, and prove to our ene- mies that the true British fpirit is not exhausted. Bath, Aug. 7. The grand jury of Devon at the last assizes, having received a proposal from Dennis Rolle, Esq; for the county to build a ship of the line for strengthening his Majesty's navy, were unani- mously of opinion, that men are more wanted than I ships, and that it would be of great public utility to adopt measures for raising them ; a meeting for this purpose is accordingly called by the High Sheriff to be held on Friday next at the castle of Exeter. Newbury, Aug. 1. We have had in this part of the world a play acted by Lord Craven's young family ; the sight was altogether the newest and most entertain- ing that imagination can form. The theatre was made in the wood behind Benham- House ; the trees formed a canopy, and the darkness and stillness of the night were favourable to the lights and dresses, which were Spanish, and very magnificent. The play was Moliere's Statue Feast, but much altered, and cut in- to two acts, by Lady Craven. No audience ever gave so many proofs of satisfaction, as those which were permitted to see this little play; the interest of which was heightened by the Statue presenting a lit- tle child to Don Juan ( Don Juan's son) which he knew not he was possessed of. The infant was Lad Craven's beautiful youngest son, only three years old, who embraced his theatrical parents with much grace. I have procured a copy of the prologue, said to be written by Lady Craven; the epilogue was an old one. PROLOGUE. TO this deep shade, this sacred wood belong The pow'rs of wit, the harmony of song. No longer, as in days of yore, the owl With midnight shrieks affrights the calmest soul. No more the hoarse and death forboding raven With croaks disturbs the peaceful house of Craven. A Muse, with all a mortal's'care and grace, First decks with artful hand this lovely face; Here fixes all the objects of her love, And with a smile, now consecrates the grove. Lightly she skims the cream of ancient lays, Now trims new fashions for our modern days; Then soars aloft in poetry and air, Leaving the earth- born all to nature's care: To- night Moliere appears, a l'Angloise dress'd, And if by your applause he is confess'd A welcome foreigner; perchance your smile May be an omen to this war- worn isle, That France and England may once more agree, Let France give wit, we'll grant it liberty ; — Yes, liberty !— with song and dance to roam, While we our thoughts and virtues keep at home. Hereford, Aug. 8. On Monday last, at the annual meeting of the corporation of this city, William Ravenhill, Esq; was elected Mayor for the year en- suing. On Sunday last died, advanced in years, Mrs. Ann Cope, of this city: she was a serious and devout Christian— a character that necessarily implies the uni- form practice of every moral virtue. The following horses are entered for next Wednes- day's plate of 50I. for all ages, viz. Lord Milford's bay horse Obscurity, 5 years old, 8ft. 3lb. Mr. Francis's bay mare Miranda, 5 years old, 7ft. 1 tlb. Others are expected to enter at the post, and there are several in town for Thursday's plate. Bristol, Aug. 7.

At our assizes, which ended on Friday morning last, before Mr. Baron Hotham and Mr. Justice Buller, William Parry, and James Pow- ney, for sheep- stealing; John Roberts, and Hannah Aplin, for burglary ; and Robert Raper, for forgery, received sentence of death ; but were all reprieved be- fore their Lordships left the city.

Charles Dunster, George Hayward, Esq; to Miss Russell, daughter of the late John Russel, Esq; of that city ; a lady of a most amiable character, with a fortune of 30,0001. - After the ceremony the new married couple set off imme- diately for South Wales. LONDON, Friday, Aug 9. Wednesday an express arrived at the Admiralty from Lord Howe, informing their Lordships of his arrival in Torbay, with the fleet, on Monday last j his Lordship has ordered some of his ships to Ply- mouth, and some will remain in Torbay, and his Lordship, with the Victory and several others, will come up to Portfmouth. We are happy to find, from the great exertions now making in the different dock- yards, that his Lordship will be reinforced with the following ships, viz. Guns. Guns. Princess Royal 98 Bombay Castle 74- Blenheim 90 Ruby 64 Royal William 84 Belleisle 64 Egmont 74 Polyphemus 64 Pegasus 74 disputable that the combined fleet is gone into Brest. The preparations that have been made to furnish him with every necessary, in order to expedite his re- sail- ing, makes it probable that he will be able to put to _ sea again by the 20th of this month. His Lordship has left several ships cruising to the Westward, to meet the Leeward- Island fleet; and has likewise sent cutters to watch the motions of the enemy off Brest, to give information should any detachment be made from the combined fleet; so that we may rest satisfied in regard to the safety of the homeward- bound trade. Extract of a letter from on board the Victory, at Torbay, August 7. " which nothing occurred particularly worth mention- ing, except the weather, which has been the most sin- gular ever known in this part of the globe at this sea- son: such thick fogs and heavy rains, attended with horrid peals of thunder, and the most tremendous flashes of lightning. I believe we may reckon at least 30 days of rain since we left Torbay. Our crew not r withstanding are tolerably healthy, as are those of most of the other ships. We never saw the combined fleets plainly, but once, and that was on the 12th of last. month, when the wind fell to a flat calm, and pre- vented the squadrons coming so close as to engage; though had the enemy meant to fight, they certainly might have done it. Their ships however seemed ra- ther foul, at least they move but slowly in the water, according to our cruizers, even in a stiff gale. Send my necessaries to Portsmouth directly, as we shall be here only a few days." Extract of a letter from Sheerness, Aug. 6. " The Princess Royal, of 98 guns; the Blenheim, of 90 ; and the Polyphemus, of 64 ; are sailed from the Nore for the Downs, " The Bombay Castle, of 74 guns, and the Cato, of 50, are likewise ordered to proceed immediately for the Downs." Le Pegase of 74 guns, late prize to the Foudroyant, is put into commission at Portsmouth, and the com- mand of her given to Capt. George Berkley. Government hath adopted the maxims of the French in building ships of war in haste ; 12 sail are to be launched in ten months: this practice, which nothing but extreme necessity can justify, must be discontinued as soon as possible, as ships built in this manner seldom last long. There are six ships of 74 guns now building in the River, to be finished hy Christmas, though their keels have been laid down this year. The Impregnable, of 90 guns, in the King's- yard at Deptford, is to be launched in February next, though her keel has been laid down this year. Last Tuesday's Gazette contains the Speaker's notice that at the end of 14 days he should issue a writ for electing a Member for Wells, in the room of Robert Child, Esq; deceased. The Candi- dates are, Capt. Curtis, of the Somerset militia, and Thomas Coward, Esq; of Spargrove. On Monday evening Lord and Lady Temple, Lord Nugent, and the Count de Grasse, went to Vauxhall gardens. • The Count de Grasse went on Monday to view Westminster- Abbey; where, amongst the crowd, an old woman addressed him thus: " God bless your old brave face of oak, Mr. Mountsheer.'" The Count, after earnestly looking at her, gave her a crown piece. Yesterday morning Count de Grasse paid a visit to Lord Keppel at the Admiralty, where he was intro-, duced by Admiral Sir Peter Parker. This day the Count de Grasse, together with his suite, dined with the Earl of Shelburne, at his house in Berkeley- square. Yesterday Count de Grasse was at the Royal Ex- change and the Bank, where he was complimented by several merchants, & c. and in the evening he was at the theatre in the Hay- market. Extract of a letter from Gibraltar, July 25. "' This being St. James's day, the patron or tute- lary Saint of Spain, the Dons have, in honour of the day, saluted us with the most infernal fire that we had received for many weeks ; but their honest patron did not take charge of a single ball, to see it do execution ; for not a man was killed in consequence of all this dreadful fire, or even hurt, except a Hanoverian cor- poral, who, as he was relieving guard, had his left eye struck out by the splinter of a stone; the poor fellow, however, tho' in great agony, would go through with his business, and putting his handkerchief to his eye, relieved the remaining centinels, before he would go to the surgeon. ' Too much cannot be said of our gallant Gover- nor ; he is every where; trusts hardly any thing even to the Lieutenant- Governor, but sees every thing with his own eyes, and is making every necessary prepara- tion to give the Dons a warm reception, if they should venture to make an assault." The corn harvest will be the latest this year that ever was known in the memory of man ; the farmers in Essex and Hertfordshire, who generally commence first, do not expect to begin cutting their wheat before the first week in September; last year they began by the middle of July; an astonishing difference of near eight weeks. Under the idea of absolute independence of legisla- tion, we are informed that several Irish merchants are instituting a fund for the equipment and support of ships to trade with the East- Indies, and the coast of Africa. As the East India and African Company- hold an exclusive right of trading to those parts by compact, and purchase, with, and from the crown ; which right is confirmed by British acts of parliament; and, as this proceeding of the Irish will evidently lessen the value of such exclusive interest, it may fairly be concluded, that the business will become the cri- terion of ths question depending in Ireland, respecting the repeal and renunciation of the act of the 6th of George the First, & c. Ml STOLEN or STRAYED, from off Hampton Common, the 19th or 30th of July last, a BROWN MARE belonging to John Perrin, of Nailsworth, Clothier ; eight Years old, 14 Hands high, with a remarkable made Star in her Forehead, and a single Saddle Spot behind the near Shoulder, and a cut Tail.

A COLLIERY. TO be SOLD, during the Remainder of a Lease for 21 Years, whereof 17 Years are to come and unex- pired from Michaelmas last, All that valuable COLLIERY of PONT YeTTS, situate in the several Parshes of Llangen- deirne and Llanelly, in the County of Carmarthen, adjoining the Turnpike Road leading from Lianelly to Carmarthen, and being within six Miles of the former, and nine of the latter, and about two Miles from a navigable Part of Gwendraeth Vaur River, and within five Miles of the Town of Kidwelly, where there is a Coal Yard, and to which Place the Coal and Culm raised out of such Colliery, maybe cheaply conveyed, and from thence exported, at an easy Rate, to any Part of the World. The Veins of Coal are, one of upwards of two, the other between four and five Feet thick, and the most pleafant burning Stone Coal of any in Wales.— The Engine ( which will clear all the Water from the Pits by working eight out of 14 Hours, and is of a most curious Construction) with the Timber, Implements, and Tools thereunto belonging, also to be sold. As also the Lease of the Tenements of Tyr Yetts, and Ynis Yetts, ( under which the Veins of Coal lie) for the Remainder of the Term aforesaid. The Reason of the Partners being desirous of parting with the Work is, that they are not sufficiently acquainted with the Nature of Coal Works, and the working thereof, so as to prevent their being cheated by their Agents and Workmen ; and that they have been very unfortunate in their Agents; their last Agent, John Dawson, a Derbyshire Man, but late of Eskirmwyn, in the County of Cardigan, having ran off, without giving them any Account of the Money received, either from the Colliery or from the Lands.

LONDON, Saturday, Aug. 10. From the LONDON GAZETTE. Whitehall, August 10. The King has been pleased to grant the dignity of a Baronet of the kingdom of Great- Britain to Francis Geary, of Polesden, in the county of Surry, Esq; Admiral of the white squadron of his Majesty's fleet, and to the heirs male of his body lawfully begotten. The King has been pleased to present the Rev. Da- vid Meyrick, Batchelor of Arts, to the rectory of Lutterworth, in the county of Leiceister and diocese of Lincoln, void by the death of the Rev. Mr. Billio. The King has b: en pleased to grant to the Rev. Mr. Denny Martin, of Leeds, in the county of Kent, and his issue, ( pursuant to the will of His late uncle Thomas Lord Fairfax-, deceased) his royal licence and authority to take and use the surname and bear the arms of Fairfax. London Gazette. The Antelope packet, Capt. Kempthorn, is arrived from the Leeward- Islands, from whence she sailed on the 1st of July, and brings the following intelligence : that the fleet for Europe, consisting of near aoo fhips, above 80 of which are for London, sailed on the 15th of June, under convoy of the Robuste and Janus— that the ships from St. Christopher's, Nevis, and Mountserrat had joined them, and on the 14th of July the packet fell in with the fleet at sea, all well. Opwards of 1000 soldiers, from the evacuated pro- vince of Georgia, had arrived in the islands, under convoy of a fifty gun ship, and two or three frigates. General Mathews was preparing to go on an ex- pedition from St. Lucia, but kept the object of it so great a secret, that no conjecture could be formed of the place against which the armament was intended. — Admiral Pigot, in the Jupiter, of 50 guns, ar- rived at Barbadoes on the 28th of June, in good health, and was expected to sail in a few days for Ja- maica, to take the command of the fleet. The Navy Office has given public notice that they will contract with any merchant or owners of ship- ping, for the conveying of 100 soldiers to the Lee- ward Islands, and 200 for Jamaica. From the small number of soldiers sending from hence to those islands, it is plain more troops are going there from America, which makes it probable either that Charlestown or New- York will be evacuated, as well as Georgia. Lord Howe has left several ships cruising to the Westward, to meet the Leeward- Island fleet; and he has likewise sent cutters to watch the motions of the enemy off Brest, to give information should any de- tachments be made from the fleet gone into that harbour. Yesterday Mr. Wilkes was for upwards of two hours with Lord Shelburne, and afterwards waited on his Maiesty at St. James's. The present state of the Cabinet is now said to be this » -- The Duke of Richmond, by his own desire, has not been summoned to it ever since Mr. Fox left it, but at the same time said he should keep the Ordnance, as he thought that in that department he might be be serviceable to the state; but in a Cabinet which he foresaw would either be a divided one, or else in the hands of Lord Shelburne, he could be of no use. In a conversation be had with Gen. Conway, the latter declared he would also leave it, if peace was not made with America; but the General stays in, though n0 peace is now thought of, and is looked very coldly upon by many of his old friends The Duke of Grafton is in a different situation; at the same time that the Duke of Richmond withdrew, he shewed such a coldness to the rest of the Administration, that the Chancellor asked him if he designed to attend the Ca- binet ? The Duke said he should consider of it. He continued to be summoned, but has never been there, except three times on business not of great consequence. This is the state of the Ministry ; so that the fact is, Lord Shelburne is sole Minister at present, and with- out control; at the meeting of Parliament, there- fore, we may expect there will be as strong an opposi- tion as has been known for many years.— St. Ja Ch. Count de Grasse and the other French officers were yesterday at Court; and had the honour to be intro- duced to his Majesty. They were received with par- ticular distinction, and the Count conversed for a long time with his Majesty. After the levee they dined with the Earl of Shelburne. His Majesty, who has been particularly attentive to his Excellency aver since his arrival in England, sent him his sword on Wednesday last, accompanied with an intimation ifi this presence would be extremely agreable at St. James's. On Suuday the Count will set off for France, previous to which he will dine with Lord Keppel at the Admiralty. We are assured that in the northern counties there has been no rain for a considerable time, and every thing wears the appearance of a very plentiful harvest. One day last week as Mrs. Demainbray, of Rich- mond, was walking with her daughters, a Mr. Clarke, and her footman, about nine o'clock, in Kew Road, they were attacked under the wall by a single highwayman, who demanded their money: Mrs. Demainbray, placing herself against the wall, declared she would not be robbed. The highway- man upon this said he would fire amongst them. Mrs. Demainbray told him she saw no pistol, and asked him to shew her one if he had it, but he could not. One of her daughters out of compassion then gave him six pence, and the other some half- pence; but Mrs. Demainbray would not give him any thing, He immediately rode after Mr. Clarke, who was at a little distance, and who delivered up his watch, and was going to give his money, when Mrs. Demain- bray coming up, declared that no man ( hould be rob; bed in her company; and continuing in this dispoli- tion, the highwayman was forced to ride off. Thursday morning, about two o'clock, the house of Mrs. Hollingshead, in St. Margaret's church- yard, was broke open by three men. The maid servant hearing them in the house, alarmed the watchman, who coming up to the door, three men with cut- lasses in their hands, rushed out, and one of them stabbed the watchman in the belly. They then crossed the way, when a second watchman attempted to stop them, whom they wounded in a more dangerous manner than the former, who having now a little re- covered himself, seized one of them by the collar, and secured him. His name is Messenger, a noto- rious villain, who hath long been committing depre- dations on the public, and was lately dismissed from . the ballast lighters. .

The fleet from Antigua is hourly expected in the Channel. " The conduct of the Loyalists at New York, it is imagined, has determined the Cabinet no longer to re- sist the Independence of America. I am inclined to this opinion, as I know for certain that a gentle- man of consequence set off for Paris last Monday, and took with him three of the King's messengers, who are to return successively with the result of the conferences." The Rev. Robert Myddleton, M. A. and fellow of Clare Hall, Cambridge, was, on Act Tuesday, ad- mitted to an ad eundem degree in the University of Oxford. Lately died, at Pitchcombe, in this county, Mrs. Palling, wife of the late Thomas Palling, Esq; of that place. Last week died, at Stoke, in this county, Silas Blandfprd, sen. Esq; steward to his Grace the Duke of Beaufort. Last week died Mr. John Lovatt, of this city, On Tuesday last died, at Cirencester, in this county, after a tew hours illness, Mr. Thomas Parsons, in the 72d year of his age, many years post- master that place. Our letters from Bengal mention, that in the month of February last died, at Calcutta, Mr. James Warren, second son of the Rev. Dr. Warren, of Rip- ple, in the county of Worcester; a young gentleman whose death is the more to be lamented, as he pro- mised to be an honour to his family, and an ornament to his country. By the same letters we learn, that Thomas Davis, jun. Esq; son of Thomas Davis, Esq; of Newhouse in the county of Hereford, is appointed by the Gover- nor and Council of Bengal, their Advocate General 5 a place, the emoluments of which are upwards of 6000I. a year. Also, that Mr. Samuel Turner, son of Mrs. Turner, of this city, is appointed Aid de Camp to the Governor General of Bengal. Captain Davy of this city, who went out to India with Lord Macartney, is appointed chief Persian Se- cretary to the Governor of Bengal, a port of great ho- nour and consequence, and which he was best qua- lified to fill, as no European ever attained to the pro- ficiency in Oriental languages, which this gentleman has acquired. Extract of a letter from Carmarthen, Aug. 8. " For two days and nights past there has been con- tinual rain, which has caused great floods in all ths rivers and brooks about this place, which are swelled so amazingly as to obstruct horses and carriages from passing the roads. The damage done to the far- mers on the Towey fide is almost incredible. The grain is beat down and lodged in such a manner, that it will not be worth the reaping ; and the hay has been in many places entirely swept off by the floods. This morning a boy about nine years old fell over the bridge, and was immediately carried away by the stream, and never heard of since." The overflowing of the Severn has occasioned in this part of the country no less damage than has been sustained from the river Towey in Carmarthenshire, Extract of a letter from Cardiff, August 5. " Last week the Glamorganshire races were held, the firft time for many years, at this place. They were honoured with the attendance of most of the families of fashion for several miles round, and the entertain- ments of the week were conducted in a manner which gave the most universal satisfaction. The dress ball on Thursday was one of the most brilliant sights ever ex- hibited here ; and towards the conclusion of it, the company were agreeably surprised by a polite invita- tion from the stewards ( William Wyndham, and Peter Birt, jun. Esqrs.) to a public breakfast and dance in the Town- Hall the next morning. There were like- wise undress balls on Wednesday and Friday evenings. « The races in general afforded excellent sport, particularly on Thurfday afternoon.— John Mansel Talbot, Esq; of Margam, who was winner on Wed- nesday, generously refused to accept of the 50I. but contributed it towards the races of the ensuing year; in favour of which, all the company present, as well as others, whose engagements prevented their atten dance, have promised their warmed support." Extract of a letter from Chester, August 7. " I have this moment seen a gentleman come over from Ireland, who assures me, that the Parlia- ment of that kingdom, almost to a man, are returned to their houses in the country, satisfied with what has been done by Great- Britain The people are against Mr, Flood's violent schemes in a proportion of fifty to one— The Duke of Portland's loss is regretted; but, this gentleman says, his Grace is himself impatient to return."
