MONDAY, October 7, 1782. VOL. LXI. THURSDAY'S POST. This Day arrived a Mail from HOLLAND. Elsineur, Sept. 17. HE day before yesterday arrived an English convoy from the North- Sea, consisting of 14. merchant- ships, un- der the protection of two frigates of the same nation. Since the de- parture of the grand convoy, 58 British ships have arrived here from — the Baltic. Hague, Sept. 16. We are assured that the treaty of commerce between their High Mightinesses the States- General and the United American States will be signed either this day or to- morrow, by the respec- tive deputies of the United Provinces, and by Mr. Adams, Minister- Plenipotentiary from the Congress. The Prince Stadtholder assisted yesterday at the de- liberations of the States General, and afterwards con- ferred with a Committee of their High Mightinesses. The Prince, sensible of tbe importance of using the utmost activity in the maritime operations, made the report of his last voyage to the Texel to the Secret Committee of the States General; in which, after hav- ing given a detail of his instructions for expediting the naval operations, his Highness concludes thus: « • I hope I have by the above conduct fulfilled the intentions of their High Mightinesses; and I am ready to send to the squadron of the Republic such orders, particularly for its departure, as their High Mighti- nesses shall judge proper, every thing being ready for putting them in execution without loss of time, as soon as wind and tide will permit." Vienna, Aug. 28. The Emperor has determined that there shall be but seven Universities in his domi- nions, viz. at Vienna, Prague, Pelt, Lemberg, Pavia, Louvain, and Freyburg : the latter is to be upon the same footing as that of Gottingen, with leave to publish all sorts of productions relative to human knowledge. COUNTRY NEWS. Norwich, Sept. 28. We hear the batteries are now compleated, and so well regulated along the Norfolk and Suffolk coasts, that we need not be under the least apprehension of an attack. On Wednesday evening several signals by dis- charge of cannon, musketry, sky- rockets, and fire- beacons, were exhibited on Herringfield and Mous- hold heaths, and at Lowestoft, which appear to be very well adapted to alarm the country on the ap- proach of an enemy. LONDON, Tuesday, Oct. 1. . Yesterday being observed as the birth- day of the Princess Royal, which happened on Sunday, their Majesties received the compliments of the nobility at Windsor; the Duke of Cumberland was present, as were also the Duke and Duchess of Richmond, Lord Rodney, and many others of the Nobility, by invi- tation from their Majesties; in the evening there was a grand entertainment and a ball. Yesterday morning advice was received at the Ad- miralty from the Downs of Commodore Elliot, with a small squadron, having sailed for his former station, to prevent the sailing of some stout privateers from St. Maloes and Morlaix, which intended putting to sea in a few days, in order to pick up some of the homeward- bound Jamaica fleet, should they be sepa- rated by gales of wind. The following is a list of his ships, viz. Guns. Guns. Romney, jo I La Prudente 36 Mediator, 44 | Eurydice 32 Admiral Sir Hyde Parker will supercede Sir Ed- ward Hughes upon the East India station as soon as he arrives there. According to the accounts brought by Lord Rod- ney from Jamaica, the next fleet may be expected to arrive about the middle of October. A letter from Antigua, dated July 30, received by the ship Barbadoes, Capt. Parke, arrived at Livre- pool, confirms the account of the loss of the two Ja- maica packets, in the following words 1 " Yesterday a gentleman arrived here from Guadaloupe, who law both the Jamaica and Windward Island packets lying there: they fortunately threw their letters overboard. This has been a great disappointment to every body, as we have been for some time without any news from England. These two packets were taken to the windward of Barbadoes by two frigates ; they had also taken a brig from England, laden with flour and dry goods; a snow, from Madeira, with 300 pipes of wine, for Barbadoes and this island, and a ship from Newfoundland with fish." The fleet now in the East- Indies is by far the most respectable that Britain ever had in that quarter : the most powerful fleet there last war, which was com- manded by the Admirals Pocock, Stephens, and Cor- nish, consisted only of one ship of 74, two of 70, four of 64, four of 60, and two of 54 guns : Sir Edward Hughes has with him at this time, one of 80, five of 74, two of 70, eight of 64, and two of 50 guns. The Gibraltar, of 80 guns, ( late Phoenix, a Spanish prize, taken by Lord Rodney, with the Spanish Ad- miral Don Juan de Langara on board) thought only a two decker, is equal to most ships of 90 guns ; her metal is 36, 18, and 9 pounders. The Dutch grand fleet, consisting of 14 sail of the line and three frigates, sailed from the Texel to the northward on Sunday morning the 15th ult. four days after Lord Howe left Spithead j it is supposed their first object will be to intercept our Baltic fleet, but all the ships of that convoy bound to the north ward, and for Hull, Newcastle, and the Frith of Forth, have arrived safe; of those bound for the dock- yards in the Channel, we have got accounts that they are arrived in Yarmouth roads. It is pos- sible the Dutch may attempt to capture what colliers and merchantmen they can meet with on the coast of England and in the Channel, to prevent which an embargo ought immediately to be laid on all the ship ping in the British ports, until the fleet of observation now collecting, is ready to watch the motions of the enemy. A large ordnance ship, which sailed from Toulon for Algesiras the 15th of last month, foundered with- in 50 leagues of that place, and- but very few of the crew were saved. Extract of a letter from an officer of rank at New York, dated August 9. " It is currently talked of to day, that the French are landing on the east end of Long Island, and that the rebels appear in force near the post at King's Bridge, on this island. What will be the event of it God only knows: this I know, that the offers of in- dependency, which were made public a few days ago, will be a great detriment to the garrison in repelling a serious attack on this place, as the militia ( a body of near 5000 men) and the refugees ( near 1000) are ex- tremely alarmed at the acquiescence of the Ministry, and concessions of Government. The majority of these people have already sacrificed their property to their principles, and now have the mortification to find the one will avail them as much as the other. I am called upon to send this letter. Adieu." A- gentlemen at Paris writes to his correspondent in London, that on account of the great probability that England will be under the necessity of acknow- ledging America independent, and that a peace will be speedily concluded, the French merchants who had formed the resolution of giving no further credit to the Americans, had abandoned that idea, and were making preparations for compleating all the orders which remain unexecuted. One of the happy consequences of a reconciliation with America will be a vast increase of trade to this country, which, through the medium of the Colo- nies, will become the great receptacle of the wealth of Spain. In return for British produce exported to America we shall receive from the people of that country, Spanish gold and silver, in bullion and in coin, besides a great variety of valuable drugs, and other most profitable articles of commerce. the ballast lighters, in collecting from other convicts ( sent thither from all parts of the kingdom) the si- tuation of gentlemen's seats— those who are reputed to be worth money, and that keep cash in their houses— those who have quantities of plate, and the particular places in which they keep it, & c. that not a gentleman's house of that description ( be it ever so remote from the metropolis) can probably escape, un- less government will interfere, and form a resolution of sending the banditti ( discharged from time to time from the lighters, and now at large) to Africa, or some other place beyond the seas.

STROUD- WATER NAVIGATION. THE General Half- yearly Meeting of the Pro- prietors of the faid Navigation, ( appointed by Ad of Parliament) will be held at the ( Jeorge Inn in Siro- jd afore- said, on Tuefday the 8th of October next, at Ten o'Clock in the Forenoon. JOSEPH CRAZEBROOK, Clerk. Strmd, Sept. 17. A1 Extract of an authentic letter from Ballymoney, dated September 19, 1782. *• Yesterday we had a review of thirty volunteer corps at this place, and after the review, a mock en- gagement, concluded by an attack and defence of the town ; the whole afforded infinite pleasure to an a- mazing crowd of spectators, and n0 less to the Gene- ral, James Leslie, who expressed the highest satis- faction at the appearance and discipline of the troops. « ' In the evening, a meeting of Delegates from the feveral corps was held, when they UNANIMOUSLY agreed on a very proper and spirited address to the re- viewing General: thanks to the exercising officer, and a resolution to call a provincial meeting of the volun- teer Delegates at Dungannon, previous to the next session of Parliament, in order to consider of the most effectual means to procure an IRISH BILL OF RIGHTS, for the purpose of declaring and securing the freedom and independence of our constitution; and they appointed a committee to call such meeting in the name of the whole, when the proper time shall arrive. ' They also agreed to a resolution, reprobating in the strongest terms that PERNICIOUS measure- the raising ot Fencible Regiments in Ireland ; and declaring their opinion, that any volunteer enlisting therein merited EXPULSION from his corps. " To this resolution there was ONE dissenting voice. Nine Delegates declined voting for their corps, because they were not instructed on THIS point by their constituents, though they in general declared their OWN opinions to be decided in fa- vour of the resolution." Resolutions, expressing a similar jealousy of the pro- posal of raising Fencibles in Ireland, have been en- tered into by the Dublin merchants corps, Castlebar volunteers, Armagh meeting, and Ulster regiment. At these meetings, the volunteers and delegates took occasion to express, among other resolutions that breathe a great spirit of liberty, their sense of the ne- cessity of a Bill of Rights. Extract of a letter from Dublin, Sept. 24. " From what passed on Tuesday last, when the Lord- Mayor, Sheriffs, and Recorder, waited on his Lord Lieutenant, to congratulate him on his safe ar- rival, we have reason to presage most favourably of his Excellency's good intentions towards Ireland. The Recorder in a very handsome speech paid his Excellency many deserved compliments, and particu- larly observed, that he could not suppose, that one so nearly related to the greatest and the best man that England could boast, either amongst the living or the dead ( the late Earl of Chatham) would accept of the Government of this country, but upon terms ho- nourable to himself, and beneficial to the people. His Excellency, after replying in an elegant manner to every part of the Recorder's speech, concluded with these remarkable words, " Mr. Recorder, you have judged rightly, and have done me no more than justice in supposing that I never would have accepted of the Government of this country, but upon such terms as will prove honourable to myself, and must be beneficial to the people." The Parliament of Ireland is prorogued from the 24th of September last to the 26th of November next. The monument erected at Guildhall to the memo- ry of that celebrated statesman, the late Lord Cha- tham, not being compleated, the formal opening of it is consequently postponed. It was, however, ex- hibited on Saturday pro tempore, for the gratification of the curiosity of the livery assembled. Notwith- standing this monument is large, and consists of many figures, the idea on which it is designed, is the simplest possible; viz. the prosperity of the na- tion under that great man's administration ; to exhi- bit which the artist has introduced his Lordship lean- ing on a rudder, as the pilot of the state : by his side sits Commerce, over whom he throws his fostering arm. Britaniia, seated on a lion, is receiving in her lap the contents of a large cornucopia, which the quarters of the globe, in the train of Commerce, are pouring into it. The most active figure in this com- position is the City of London, who, by looking Up to Lord Chatham, and pointing to Commerce, seems to be recommending her to his pretection ; by which distribution the artist has paid a well- turned compli ment to the corporation, in pointing out their impor tance as a means of national wealth. A correspondent who frequents the Public Office in Bow street, thinks it his duty to the community to declare, that on Wednesday last he heard Mr. Bond of that office solemnly aver, that such has been the in dustry of the London house- breakers whilst on board MONMOUTHSHIRE. Circular Letter, of which the following is a Copy, has been received by the Lord Lieutenant of this County, from one of his Majesty's principal Secretaries of State. ' ( C I R C U L A R.) « MY LORD, Whitehall, Sept. 10, 1782. The very great Deficiency of Men in the Regi- ments of Infantry, being so detrimental to the public Service, the King has thought proper to give the Names of the different Counties to the old Corps, in hopes that by the Zeal and Activity of the principal Nobility and Gentry in the several Counties, some considerable Assistance may be given towards recruiting these Regiments. As this is a Point of the utmost public Importance, his Majesty has no Doubt of your Grace's using your utmost Influence among your Friends, for the Ac- complishment of it. The King has been pleased to appoint the Forty- third Regiment to the County of Monmouth, and ' to bear its Name. * I have the Honour to be, « MY LORD, ' Your Grace's Most obedient humble Servant, T. TOWNSEND. Lord Lieutenant of the County 0f Monmouth. That the important Objects of the above Letter may be generally known and promoted within this County, it has been thought proper to publish it.

Bristol, 0ct. 2. This day arrived here the ship Tobago Planter, Capt. John Stephens, she sailed with the fleet from Jamaica, and gives the following ac- count :--- that on the 16th of September, in lat. 43. long. 48. they met with a heavy gale of wind, and on the 17th at nine A. M. he spoke with the Ramil- lies, Admiral Graves, her main and mizen mast gone; also the Centaur, all her masts gone, bowsprit, head and rudder; saw the Canada, with her mizen mast and main- top- mart gone; the Glorieux with LONDON, Friday, October 4. It is with the greatest pleafure we inform our readers, that a gentleman arrived in town yesterday from France, with the following important intelli- gence. That on the 12th of September the Spaniards made their grand attack, by sea, on the garrison of Gibraltar; and that on the 13th, the day following, their floating batteries and gun boats were all set on fire, by red- hot shot, and totally destroyed. It is- imagined that upwards of 2000 men perished in the conflagration, which lasted for many hours. It is said their fleet were in the bay, and not able to render them any assistance. From another correspondent we have the following: — Yesterday in the afternoon an express arrived from Paris, addressed to a merchant of considerable emi- nence in the city, and which brought the following glorious intelligence:— That the grand attack, so long meditated by the French and Spaniards, against Gibraltar, had taken place on the 12th ult. in the morning, assisted by all their gun- boats, floating bat- teries, & c. & c. The event was a total overthrow of the enemy. Their gun- boats, & c. were mostly sunk, in which were upwards of 2000 picked men, employ- ed to work the cannon, together with a prodi- gious slaughter of those troops that were ordered to storm under cover of the machines. These advices further add, that our brave Governor, observing the discomfiture of the enemy, made a sally from the gar- rison with three battalions of British infantry, and- two of Hanoverians; the carnage was then renewed with redoubled horror, the enemy flying in every quarter with the utmost precipitation. The vistors, on this occasion, destroyed all the works of the enemy, and captured near 100 pieces of heavy artillery. These important advices were received by a gentleman of so unimpeached a character in the city, that they were universally credited, and a messenger was dispatched to the King at Windsor, with the information. The accounts from Gibraltar, which we have from a correspondent who is generally very well informed, says, that on the night of the 13th of September Ge- neral Elliot permitted the Spaniards to advance with all their floating batteries and gun- boats to the spot where they intended to act, and suffered them to moor without interruption; when, before they had fired a single gun or mortar, he began such a dread- ful cannonading with red- hot balls, that he destroyed the whole, without having received the least injury in the garrison. Two of the Spanish floating bat- teries blew up, and every soul on board perished; and the rest, with the gun- boats, were burnt to the water's edge, and then sunk. The accounts from France say, the assault on Gibral- tar was general, tho' principally carried on from the sea by the enemy's floating batteries and gun- boats; that Gen. Elliot however, being apprized of their in- tention to attack him on such a day, caused every ne- cessary preparation to be made for their reception, and particularly by ordering all the batteries towards the sea to be supplied with stoves for heating the shot; to which circumttance, we understand, the defeat of the enemy is chiefly to be attributed ; as the red- hot balls set fire to many of the floating batteries, and sunk se- veral of the gun- boats. The above accounts further add, that the General's humanity not suffering him to see the poor wretches in the floating batteries perish in the flames, he had sent out boats to their assistance, and saved the lives of a great many, from whom he learnt that their loss must exceed 1500 men. Mr. O'Reiley, a merchant of Dublin, and who ar- rived here on Monday from Paris, assures us, that the defeat of the Spaniards at Gibraltar had the fullest credit in that metropolis. It is said there, that the express arrived from Gibraltar in ten days. This news had thrown a general damp over the inhabi- tants at Paris, who began to fear for the Princes of the blood. It is said the destruction of the gun- boats, by the brave garrison of Gibraltar, was principally effected in the following manner : The Governor having re- ceived information that the grand attack would be made at a certain part of the rock, had employed a number of hands in digging out a cavern large enough to contain 200 men, and 12 pieces of heavy artillery, together with two forges for the heating of shot. The rock was chipped so near the surface, that nothing remained but a few strokes of a sledge or iron- bar to make appertures for the muzzles of the cannon. The stratagem succeeded; and when the enemy's gun- boats and floating batteries had arrived within point- blank shot of the place where our men lay concealed, they instantly made way for the cannon to play upon the enemy. The artillery was so well served, and with balls red hot from the forges, that in less than an hour 17 gun- boats were set on fire, and completely de- stroyed, together with most of the people on board them.

GEORGE CONIBEERE, Auctioneer. appeared to be all well, except the loss of her mainsail.—- Capt. Stephens spoke with the Alexander, ( of Glasgow) the fame day, her mizen- mast and rud- der gone ; — saw the Salt River with her mizen- mast gone, and her sails flying to pieces;— the Minerva with her bowsprit and foretopmast gone ; and several ships ( names unknown) their masts and bowsprits gone.--- The same morning he passed through a large quantity of puncheons, bags of cotton, logs of ma- hogany, masts, spars, empty casks, & c The 19th A. M. says he was in company with the ship Lady Taylor, when a strange sail fell in with them, which the Lady Taylor perceiving wore to the Westward, and the strange vessel followed her with all the sail she could crowd. Saw the Good Hope all well, and the ship Druid all well except the loss of her mainsail, a sixty- four- gun ship ( Le Caton) in a leaky condi- tion with the Pallas frigate to accompany her, left the fleet bound for Hallifax before the gale of wind.--- Admiral Pigot has destroyed about 25 American privateers, & c. which were rendezvousing in the Bay of Mattania, supposed to be in waiting for the fleet ; he also landed and destroyed a fort. The following circumstance happened one evening last week at the house of a gentleman in Brunswick- square, who was absent on a journey.— About eleven - o'clock at night, the lady being gone to bed, the maids were preparing to follow her, when to their great astonishment they heard the sneezing of a man in the house, upon which they fled to their mistress's apartment., The villain pursued them, but by tum- bling up the stairs, he gave the girls an opportunity to secure their mistress's door, , and they immediately alarmed the neighbourhood, but before any one A letter from Lisbon, dated the 24th ult. men- tions, that a large fleet parted by that place on the 22d, which was suppofed to be Lord Howe's. A passenger from on board a Jamaica ship, who arrived in the city yesterday morning, brings a most melancholy account of the fleet; the following are some of the particulars attending this unfortunate event, which will be a great loss to the merchants and under- writers : — The storm began on the 10th of Sep- tember, and lasted three days without intermission. On the first day the Caton, of 64 guns, made signals of distress, and was ordered for New- York, with the only frigate in the fleet. On the second day, the Centaur, of 74 guns, was entirely dismasted, and signals of distress were flying on board two other ships of the line, which are supposed to have put back for America or the West- Indies. Many of the merchant ships, it is feared, have foundered. The gentleman who brings this news, counted nine sail of them dis- masted. Commodore Elliot having resumed his station off the Isle de Bas, it is thought very valuable captures will be made, as some of the shipping bound to St. Maloes and Morlaix must inevitably fall into his hands. Extract of a letter from Plymouth, Sept. 27. " Arrived the Wagter, a French prize of 500 tons burthen, laden with ordnance stores and soldiers,. bound from Rochelle to the East- Indies, being one of 300 sail of transports and storeships, under convoy of five fail of the line and eight frigates, bound to the East and West- Indies, but were separated from their convoy off Cape Finisterre the 17th inst. in a gale of wind. The above ship, with four others, were taken by the Resolution and Anson men of war the day fol- lowing. It is supposed that many more are taken, as the two men of war were in the middle of the convoy when the above prize left them, and the French line of battle ships were not then in sight. It is supposed the separation of the above fleet will occasion their re- turn into port." The papers having mentioned that no intelligence had been received from Admiral Campbell, we are happy to have it in our power to acquaint our readers, that he arrived at Newfoundland in the Portland man of war, after a quick passage, and without any acci- , dent, save the interruption he met with from the French fleet on his clearing the Channel. As the approaching war between the Turks and Russians engages much the attention of Europe, it may not be unentertaining to observe, that should the Grand Vizir take the field in person, which is very probable, the standard of Mahomet will be displayed ; previous to which there will be a proclamation, com- manding all Christians not to look at this standard on pain of death. When the above- mentioned Holy Banner was dis- played in 1769, the Lady of the Ambassador from Vienna peeped at it through a window, and being observed, the Turks broke into the house, and lay- ing hold of her, would have certainly strangled her, had not a party of Janizaries come up instantly to her assistance.—- After the above assault by an infatuated rabble, the Vizir sent her a present of jewels ; with these jewels there was also a bag, and in the bag were the heads of three of the people who had been most active in breaking into her house. A letter from Ashburton, in the Peak of Derby- shire, mentions, that as some persons were cutting down a large wood near Barton, about five miles from the first- mentioned place, they discovered the ground- plot or foot- steps of an ancient Roman city or town, hitherto unnoticed by any of our antiquaries, and al- though the pavements and foundations were either sunk or over- grown with earth, yet the streets were easily discoverable.

MONDAY'S POST. FOREIGN AFFAIRS. Petersburgh, Sept. 2. HE statue of Peter the Great, the inaugura- tion of which ( if the expression may be al- lowed) was attended with such pomp here, has this singularity to recommend it, that the whole is formed by one single stone ; man, horse, and the rock up which the Emperor seems to be riding. This stone was of a prodigious size ; it was found in Siberia, and was brought to Petersburgh at an im- mense expence. The sculptor is the famous Falcon- net, a Frenchman, whose fame will not die while this great production of his art endures. Vienna, Sept. 4. The Emperor intends to signalize himself, in imitation of other princes, by sending a ship round the world to make discoveries. The vessel destined for this expedition, is the Comte de Cobenzel, which cleared out of the port of Lon - don the 15th of April last, sailed from Leghorn the 26th of August, and arrived at Trieste the 1st of Sep- tember with a great cargo, a part of which she is to takeout with her, particularly 14 chests of watches and watchwork, which she brought from London. Four persons of great learning are to be sent out in her, at the Emperor's expence, to make discoveries in natural philosophy. L O N D O N, Saturday, Oct. 5. " When any enterprize cf importance is depending, the London papers are, by interested persons, to an- swer their stock jobbing views, made the vehicle of great variety of specious and contradictory informa- tion : An instance of this is the article in our first page, respecting the Dutch fleet, which, from ap- pearing in so positive a form in a number of papers, procured our admission; it is now contradicted with the same unreserve with which it was asserted; and it is said, that government have recived advice, that the fleet was seen moored in the Texel 0n Friday the 27th ult. The following is said to be a compleat return of the forces in garrison at Gibraltar on the 24th of July last, fit for duty 12th regiment of foot 39th ditto 56th ditto . 58th ditto • 72d ditto 73d ditto • Corsican corps — Hanoverians, Hardenberg's Ditto, La Motte's Ditto, La Ruyden's Artillery company 251 7 » 3+ The number of sick, on the above date, were 26, unfit for hard duty, though some appeared in the ranks occasionally. Some private letters from Leghorn mention, that a conspiracy has been discovered at Constantinople, and that the parties concerned in the late conflagrations have happily been detected. The last letters from Petersburgh mention, that all the ships from London bound to that place are safe arrived there. Yesterday advice was received from Plymouth, of the London, Captain O'Brien, being returned to that port. She was bound to Jamaica, and sailed from Spithead the 11th of last month, in company with Lord Howe, but having sprung a leak, was obliged to put back. By this vessel we learn? that Lord Howe had met with a series of blowing weather since he sailed, which had prevented him making much way, but none of the ships had received any material da- mage. The London left him on Friday the 27th ult. 95 leagues West, half South, from the Lizard, at which period he had not parted with the trade to the East or West Indies. Lord Rodney did not give up the command of the West- India fleet ' till he had got thro' the windward passage, when Admiral Pigot parted from him with 22 sail of the line, to cruise off the Havannah ' till the merchant ships from Jamaica should have passed that place. Five or six sail of stout American privateers were waiting in the Gulph of Florida for the heavy.^ sailing ships, all of which he captured. This so alarmed them at the Havannah, that 13 Spanish ships of the line which were at anchor in the mouth of the harbour, slipped their cables, and ran farther into port It was very fortunate that Admiral Pigot picked up the privateers that hovered about the Jamaica fleet, and which would have pursued them over to Europe, in the hope of picking up stragglers, or taking the ad- vantage of any storm that might separate them. Had these privateers been with the fleet when the hurricane happened, there is no doubt but they would have made a dreadful havock among the disabled ships. The Thetis, Capt. Major, one of the Jamaica fleet, is arrived at Bristol. She brings advice of the Withy- wood, for London, belonging to the same fleet, hav- ing foundered. We hear that orders were sent on Thursday night to Portsmouth and Plymouth, for several frigates to put immediately to sea, with a view to assist the dis- abled ships belonging to the Jamaica fleet, and to pre- vent their falling into the hands of the enemy. Forty guineas were offered for underwriting the homeward- bound Jamaica ships, yesterday on ' Change. A French ship from Guadaloupe, with about half her laden of sugars, coffee, and indigo, & c. is taken by the Jupiter privateer, and carried into Guernsey. By this ship it is learnt, that the inhabitants of that island are in a very deplorable situation for the neces- saries of life, that many of their slaves have perishied for want, so that the plantations lie waste for want of hands to cultivate them. That all the provision ships, excepting two, which have been sent from France, were taken by the English, which has been the prin- cipal cause of their distress. Yesterday morning four storeships, which are go- ing on government account to Antigua, with a sup- ply of naval articles for the King's dockyard there, fell down the river from Deptford to join the convoy at Portsmouth. There are accounts from America by the way of France, which state, that Mons. Bougainville, who commanded the van of the French squadron in the ever memorable engagement on the 12th of April last, was arrived at Boston, in La Neptune of 80 guns, with eight sail more of the line, all under jury masts, and in a very bad condition; they sailed from the Cape with Vaudreuil, who soon after parted company with 15 sail, bound to the Chesapeak. The ships of Mons. Bougainville's , squadron will be docked and new masted at Bolton, where they expect also to reinforce their crews with American seamen. The Americans had not launched at Boston, on the 16th of August, any larger ship than one of 50 guns, which was called the Union, and was then fitting. Paul Jones, who. had the command of a squadron, was in and out of that port ' till the 24th of July, when he took his de- parture with four ships, one of 32, one of 16, one of 20, and one. of 16 guns, on an expedition to the north, which had been planned by himself. They complained that the markets at Boston were not so well supplied as heretofore; and that vegetables of all kinds were uncommonly scarce. The report circulated a few days since concerning the settlements in Hudson's Bay, turn out to have no foundation in fact. An order is given from the war office for a general muster and return of all the regiments of militia in England and Wales, to the 29th ult. • In the Gazette of Saturday last is published his Ma- jesty's proclamation for the meeting of Parliament on the 26th of November next. Thursday, previous to the drawing- room, a Chapter i of the Garter was held at St. James's, when the Duke of Rutland was invested with the ribband, and other ensigns of the order of the late Marquis of Rocking- ham. The Knights present at the ceremony were, the Prince of Wales and Duke of Cumberland ; Dukes of Marlborough, Grafton, and Northumberland; 1 Bishop of Salisbury, Dean of Windsor, & c. ' Government have experienced a vexation from the contractors' bill which they had no reason to appre- hend. Different articles of the heavy iron work, ne- cessary during the prosecution of the war, had been furnished by Meffrs. Crawley and Co. who have an extensive manufactory on the banks of the Tyne, near Newcastle ; the ostensible proprietor being dead since the above act passed, the Earl of Ashburnham and Mr. B. a Member of Parliament, became the mana- gers, and these gentlemen immediately determined to : throw- up their contract with government; in conse- quence of this resolution, upwards of 1600 men were discharged, and, notwithstanding the many advertise- ments issued from the Board of Ordnance, soliciting tenders for the supplying of this deficiency, no person had yet applied. The iron contract with the navy, lately given up by the Crawleys, is suppofed to be an engagement of trade in its magnitude more remarkable than any. The articles which the contractor binds himself to sup- ply, are all the wants of the navy, from a common nail to the largest anchor of a first rate. The grandeur of the above mentioned trade becomes evident on a view of every part of it. We shall men- tion one article in the exterior management which to us seems very remarkable ; it is the appointment of the first clerk, who has that handsome house on the water- side at Greenwich, with a table, and servants, to- gether with a salary of 500I. a year. Letter from NATHANIEL BAYLEY, Esq-, to WILLIAM MIDDLETON, Esq; High Sheriff of the County of Suffolk. Epsom, Surrey, Sept. 26. . " SIR, " AFTER returning , you many thanks for the trouble you are taking, to procure an adequate sub- scription in the county of Suffolk, for the laudable purpose of adding a fhip of the line to the navy of Great- Britain, give me leave to beg that you will subscribe one hundred guineas thereto for me. Hav- ing no estate or interest in your county, ( more than in common with every Englishman, who may think, as I d0, himself deeply interested in every place and part of the British empire) is the reason I did not offer you my mite sooner; but hearing that the subscription is not yet compleated, and hoping that in so liberal a nation, there may be many persons disposed to contri- bute in the same manner, without regard to local in- terest, particularly in London, and other great cities, who have been remarkable for their liberality, so that I doubt not, it these subscriptions are set on foot, they will meet the greatest encouragement; for I assure you, Sir, and hereby pledge myself, to give the same sums, not only to the twelve counties you have pro- mised, but to every other county and city in which the subscriptions shall be opened for the like good pur- pose, throughout our three kingdoms. " As I have not the honour of your acquaintance, you may not know so insignificant an individual, therefore I take the liberty of mentioning, that I am the person who had the happiness to break some of the shameful contracts which the late Ministry had en- tered into, particularly that of rum, which I offered in the House of Commons to undertake at half price, by which, I flatter myself, some thousand pounds have been since got to the nation ; and much more might have been saved, had those Ministers before learnt the difference between currency and sterling, which is 40 per cent. I have the honour to be, With the greatest respect, - S I R, Your most obedient servant, NATHANIEL BAYLEY. To William Middleton, Esq. Married. Tuesday se'nnight, at Luggershall, in Wilts, the Rev.

Extract of a letter from Gibraltar, Sept. 4. " We had a skirmish yesterday with a Spanish xebeque with our 12 gun boats, and should have taken her, but a breeze sprung up. Yesterday a ma- gazine blew up, by the falling of two shells upon it 5 very fortunately there was but little powder in but we had thirty men killed and wounded. We ex- pect a storm every day: ; We can see their launches sounding and laying buoys for their mortar boats. They will attack the garrison with 30 mortar boats, 20 junk ships, and a number, of gun boats, besides the men of war." Extract of a letter from London, Saturday Evening. " The grand fleet were certainly met last Saturday about 90 leagues from the Land's End. We cannot expect to hear from them for some time, as they were so much driven out of their course by the late heavy winds. < 1 " Col. Barre has certainly lost his fight. It is generally suppos'ed he will give up his Paymastership; this is more easily believed, as he has a pension of 3200I. a year on his quitting it. Col. North, son of Lord North, is talked of for the place." Extract of a letter from Fishguard, in Pembrokeshire, oct. 3. " The people of this place were greatly alarmed a few days ago by a French privateer, which attempted to cut out several vessels that lay at anchor in our road ; but they slipped their cables, and ran on shore, under cover of the guns of our new fort. The ene- my, feeing the colours hoisted, and the inhabitants flocking to the guns, went off to sea without their booty. Among the several vefl'els on shore are the Nightingale, Dodding, the Elizabeth, Lewis, of Newnham, and the Hannah, Rawlings, of Berkeley. If the weather continues moderate, they will be got off without damage next spring tide. " This week two men working at the harvest near this town, quarrelled, and one of them fractured the other's skull in such a manner, that his life is despaired of. " Yesterday was interred here, Mr. Mansel Hugh, of Mansel Town, a place which takes its name from this gentleman, who built it, and is sole proprietor of all the houses." Extract of a letter from St. David's, Sept. 26. " An accident happened here a few days ago that was likely to produce many disasters. —- Mr. William. Lloyor, a distinguished preacher among the methodists, having assembled a numerous congregation at a house in this place, which had been newly fitted up as a granary, was, in the midst of his exhortations, inter- rupted by the sudden sinking of the floor of the room, which giving way on the side where the preacher was exalted, he first disappeared, and the congregation following him, a poor old woman had both her legs broke, and is since dead. " On Wednesday the 18th inst. the brig True Love, bound from Chester to London, laden with 32 large cannon, two and thirty pounders, was stranded in Sandy Bay, near St. David's Head, where she lies without hopes of being got off." We hear that Dr. Benson, Chancellor of the diocese of Glocester, will hold his visitation at the places and on the days hereafter mentioned, viz.

On Monday last Richard Webb, Esq; was sworn in Mayor of this city ; and Messrs. Jeynes and Read, Sheriffs, for the year ensuing. Last Monday Mr Richard Haylings was sworn in Bailiff for Leominster. On Thursday last was married, at St. James's church, Bristol, Mr. Taylor, surgeon, of Wotton- Underedge, to Miss Eleanor Ady, of this city. On Thursday last was married, at Monmouth, Henry Barnes, Esq; of that place, to Miss Louisa Macennion, daughter of Macennion, Esq; of Antigua. On Tuesday the 10th ult. was married at Ports- mouth, by Dr. Bingham, Captain Smith, of his Majesty's navy, to Miss Margaret Roberts, the youngest daughter of Mr. E. Roberts, of Trevecka, Breconshire. On Wednesday last died, at Tewkesbury, in this county, Mr. Hartelbury, grocer, of that place. A few days since died, at his seat at Tregunter, in the county of Brecon, Thomas Harris, Esq; aged 70; several years in the commission of the peace for that county. His liberal and extensive charities will make his loss severely felt by the poor, as well as regretted by all those who had the happiness of his acquaintance. On Monday morning died, at her son's house in Hereford, Mrs. Rudd, widow of the Rev. A. Rudd M. A. late Fellow of St. John's College, Oxford. His Grace the Duke of Manchester has been pleased to appoint Thomas Holbeche, of Hill- Court, in the county of Worcester, Esq; to be one of the gentlemen of his Majesty's most honourable Privy Chamber. At Ledbury fair, last Wednesday, there was a great shew of cattle, but few buyers. On Wednesday last, as Mr. Ireland, of Forthamp- ton, in this county, was returning from Tewkesbury market, he was overtaken at the Load by a man on a grey cropt ear'd horse, who rode with him near a mile, and then taking out a pistol, bid him deliver his money: he immediately fired, which grazed Mr. Ireland's cheek. He swore he had another ready for him if he made any resistance ; but it is sup- posed he had not, as he immediately rode off. Mr, Ireland pursued him, but could not come up with him.--- It is imagined he went towards Ledbury, as a person so mounted was seen at Birchmorton.

Against AUTUMNAL COMPLAINTS, At this Time so very predominant from OBSTRUCUTED PERSPIRATION, BEAUME DE VIE. By the KING's Patent THERE is not, in the whole Materia Medica so great a Preservative as this celebrated Medicine ; which, by its cordial, attenuating, and detergent Powers, fortifies the Stomach and Bowels, purifies the Blood and Juices, and gives to the whole System its natural Equilibrium. To thefe Qualities the Faculty ascrihe its great Efficacy ip BILIOUS, GOUTY, RHEUMATIC, and SCORBUTIC Complaints. From the same Principle, it has never failed to relieve in Languid, Nervous, and Hypochondriac Cases: And hence it has been found so particularly beneficial in Fe- male Disorders. %* To prevent Counterfeits the Bottles are each signed by W. Nicoll., T. BECKET, ( Vender) ( a Proprietor) *„* The Proprietors of this Medicine are very happy to receive from their Correspondents the most flattering Accounts of its Efficacy in the present reigning Complaint in the Sto- mach and Bowels. Sold, by W. Nicoll, in St. Paul's Church- Yard, London, at 3s. the bottle, with the usual Allowance ; and by R. Raikes, in Glocester; Husband and Elder, Edinburgh; and J. Potts, Dublin; Taylor, and Crutwell, Bath; Pearson and Co. Bir- mingham ; North, Brecon; Browne, Chew, Bonner and Co. Bristol; Williams and Co. Carmarthen; Potter, Haver- fordwest; Pugh, and Allen, Hereford; Jackson, Oxford; Allen, Pembroke; Tudor, Monmouth; Harrold, Marl- borough; Hogg, Stroud: Hartelbury, Tewkesburyj Hart, Wolverhampton ; and Tymbs, Worcester. Of whom may be had, Dr. ANDERSON'S only Genuine SCOTS PILLS, Truly prepared by the sole Proprietor, JAMES I N G L I S H, At the Unicorn, at No. 165, opposite the New Church in the Strand, London. THIS Medicine is peculiarly useful in disor- ders of the STOMACH and BOWEL- after hard drink- ing, excess in eating, SURFEITS, want of Appetite or Sleep, One or two pills taken twice a week, or oftener, will pre- vent the SCURVY, PESTILENTIAL FEVERS, and other malignant distempers: it is therefore the best medicine for seafaring people. It will preserve its virtues many years, and in all climates. It ia very beneficial in the following disor- ders, viz. INDIGESTION, GOUT, RHEUMATISM, DROPSY, TONE, GRAVEL, GREEN- SICKNESS, CHOLIC, GRIPE, WIND in the Stomach and Bowels, and all Obstructions WORMS cannot breed in the bowels of those who frequently take this medicine. It is excellent in disorders peculiar to women ; and may be taken with great safety during the whole time of pregnancy, and even in the time of delivery if the body be costive. A greaterproof of the excellency of this medicine cannot be given than that the gentlemen of the facuity take it fre- quently. The late celebrated , hysician, Sir Edward Hulse, Bart, was so fully convinced of the great excellency of it, that he gave Mr. Inglish a certificate, recommending it as an ex- cellent family medicine : which certificate and treatise Mr. Inglish is willing to shew to any gentleman who may be desi- rous to see them. There are many who counterfeit it; some have copied Mr Inglish's direction, which are the Doctor's own words, taken from his treatise. Some make use of his family coat of arms, which is his seal on the top of his boxes: others say, that they are partners with him, and ride the country in his name, though neither his grandfather father, or himself, ever has any partner, or ever allowed any one to take orders for them For these reasons he troubles the public with this advertise- ment.

THIS GRAND ARCANUM is an infallible Cure for the Hooping or Chin- Cough, which is con firmed by abundant Experience. This Medicine is perfectly wholsome ; gently removes the gross, tough Phlegm with which the Hooping- Cough is always attended ; the Want of such a Medicine, and the Loss of a great Number of Chil- dren, have induced the Proprietors to publish this Specific for general Good. It is a mod excellent Remedy in all Fevers, particularly all the Train of inward Fevers in Infants and young Children, when, by too much Food and too little Exercise, Indigestion and Obstructions are produced, which end in the Rickets or Death Also, Fevers in grown Persons, caused by sudden Chills or Colds; and is far more commodious and equally ef- ficacious with any Medicine hitherto known in Europe.- As its great Merit consists in removing Obstructions, this Specific, if continued for some Weeks In small Doses, opens all the Canals in the Constitution, especially in the mesente- ric Glands, by which the Heat and Fulness of the Belly are removed; and being of a subtile, penetrating Nature, it en ters the Substance of the Bones and Gristles of Children, and reduces their enlarged Heads and Joints to a natural Size, with little or no sensible Operation.

In the Course of 14 Years, since the Publication of this NEW MEDICINE, as well as before in private Practice, no- thing of the Kind was ever known to be given with the like Success in Gleets, Weaknesses, Debility, See. in either Sex, whether natural, or acquired by the Effects of Mercury, frequent Debauches, and in nervous Complaints; alfo the Difeafes OG- casioned by a Residence in a hot Climate, and thofe fecret In- firmities which attack Persons advancing in Years, have beta by this Remedy removed, and the natural Powers of the whole vital System nourished, comforted, and prolonged. For a more particular Account, read a Treatise just pub- lished, the Eighteenth Edition, Price is. 6d. ( to be had where the Medicine is sold) where the above- mentioned Dis- orders are particularly described, and some remarkable Cases taken Notice of. The Restorative is to be had in Bottles at 10s. 6d. each. The EGYPTIAN BALSAM. THE EGYPTIAN B A L S A M is. the Result of many Years Application of one of the first Physicians this Kingdom ever produced. The Knowledge ac- quired by his Travels and Study, added to his very exten- sive Practice for many Years, have rendered his Reputa- tion above all the Power df Panegyric. Hence the Faculty fcruple not to declare the Egyptian Balfam superior to any Thing before offered to the Public for the Cure of old Sores and Ulcers, Green Wounds, Cancerous and Inflammatory Tu- mours, Biles, Blotches, Whitlows, and particularly for <*- trading Thorns and Splinters. WILLIAM WILKIN, a boy about ten Years of Age, was bad for some Time with a sore Leg. It was first occa- sioned by a Scratch, and not being taken proper Care of im- mediately a violent fcoibutic Humour fell into it, and he be- came quite lame. The Wound in a short Time was very much inflamed, and his Leg apparently in great Danger; but by a proper Application of this Balsam he was in a short Time perfectly cured. The Egyptian Balsam is certainly preferable to any Thing else in the World, as it is most exceedingly delicate, having no- thing disagreeable either in the Smell or Colour; the Coni- position is so perfectly Innocent that it may be applied to the mod tender and weak Constitutions, even to an Infant, and the Application is so easy, that it requites very little Trou- ble and to Confinement. It is sold at Is. 6.1. a Pot, by R. Raikes, Glocester; Ste- vens, Cirencester; Careless, Newent; Allen, Hereford $ P.. Davis, Leominster ; at Brown's Medicinal Warehouse, Christ- mas- Street, and J.
