MONDAY, October 21 which every spectator viewed with astonishment. Two i days after the hurricane, a merchantman made the I signal for distress. We spoke to her. She proved to I be the Ann, Capt. Sherren, who begged us to stay I by him till the morning, and take his people on | board, as he feared his ship would not live, having I received so much damage Captain Fowler, with I that humanity that distinguishes him, promised to stay I by them ; and next morning the Ann's crew, con- I sisting of 19, were received on board the Augustus I Caesar, with a pleasure equal to their own. In the af- I ternoon, we saw 10 sail of merchantmen led by the I Ramillies, who made the signal of distress; we were I informed the Admiral intended quitting her the next I morning, and desired every ship to stay by him. On J the Saturday morning, after the loss of all her yards I and masts, except her foremast and bowsprit, her til- I ler broke, rudder loose, orlop deck broken in j all 1 guns, powder, shot, anchors, and cables, thrown I overboard, and nine feet water in the hold, the Ad- I miral determined to quit her; and sending the men I on board the different ships, set fire to her in the af- | ternoon. The volcanoes of fire and smoke bursting I from the Ramillies— the number of boats eagerly em- I ployed in the safety of her men, and the importance I of her loss, formed an assemblage of ideas equally I grand and awful. Capt. Fowler received the Captain, I four officers, and 50 private men on board his ship, I in a manner which will ever reflect the highest credit on him ; we were all immediately put on a short al- I lowance of water, having only 6000 gallons, with 115 on board, at the distance of 1500 miles from Spithead, lessening every inconvenience with the re- flection of our immediate preservation, through the unlimited goodness of an all gracious Providence." Yesterday advice was received of the Arundel, Captain Mann, and the Brothers, Capt. Curling, from Jamaica to London; and the Hope, Capt. Sims, and Jamaica, Capt. Shute, from Jamaica to Bristol, having been captured by three American privateers on the 3d instant, 40 leagues to the West- ward of Scilly. They afterwards fell in with a Da- tish vessel, and put the Captains on board her, who landed them at Torbay. They sent the vessels for Port L'Orient. We are sorry to find a great many of their sailors immediately entered. On the 28th of September they parted with the Benson, Capt. Oates, for Liverpoole ; and on the 2d instant, the day pre ceding the capture, they parted company with the Dorothy, Capt. Delamore, and the Belle, Capt. Forster, for London. On board the latter was Admiral Greaves. It appears that these privateers were belong- ing to one person at Salem, and that their cruise was just expired when they fell in with these merchantmen, whose fate was certainly very hard in falling victims so near home, after having escaped, with great diffi- culty, the boisterous elements and tempestuous wea-. ther which they met with off Newfoundland. The force and names of the privateers were as under ; they were single deck ships, copper bottoms, and very good sailers, viz. Resolution, Capt. Webb of 20 nine- pounders, and 140 men.—- Buchaneer, of 20 nine- pounders, 140 men.-— Cicero, of 18 fix- pounders, 100 men. Advice was likewise yesterday received of the Ca- tharine, Capt. Steel, and the Gascoyne, Capt. Cham- bers, for London, being arrived at Scilly, and the Ellen, Borrowdale, belonging to the same fleet, being arrived at Liverpool. Not less than 150,0001. have already been lost by the Underwriters, in consequence of the late hurri- canes in the West Indies. MONMOUTHSHIRE.

Count de Vergennes has pre- vailed on the King to recal the Count d'Artois, and dispatches are " p sent to hasten his return home. « The siege of Gibraltar has been an unfortunate affair to us, as we have WWVw^^ lost several brave officers, and fome JK^ TKT^ TK/ K of the best troops we had< Our engineers write word, that the fire of the English, when they first opened their lowest batteries upon the floating batteries of the Spaniards, was more terrible than can be conceived. The guns of these batteries are nearly level with the surface of the sea, and there- fore every ball took place. From these they threw such a pelting shower of red hot two- and- forty pound shot, as would have set a world in flames. The lofs which the Spaniards sustained in cannon, in their floating batteries, was 328. We daily expect to hear that the siege is raised. LONDON, Tuesday, 0ct. 15. The last mail brings the Madrid Gazette, in which the Spanish account of their famous attack on Gibral- tar is displayed in the most favourable light. The circumstances in general correspond with the recital in our former paper.; The following are the only in- teresting parts that vary from what has been already given: " IT was intended that several divisions of gun and mortar boats should proceed, so as to flank the garrison along the front, and to direct their fire to such particular spots as might seem proper ; but this measure, so necessary on the occasion, could not pos- bly be carried into execution on account of the wind and current. Other material obstacles also occurred to prevent the sending of ships, as had been formerly done, to make a diversion towards Europa- Point. Hence all the enemy's batteries that were not exposed to our fire from the land, were employed uninter- ruptedly against the floating batteries, into which shells and round and grape shot were fired without number, besides red- hot balls, 42 pounders. " Though the fire was returned on our part with- out intermission, yet the continual discharge of red- hot balls kept up by the enemy, was such as rendered all the precautions taken in the construction of the floating batteries of no effect, for the balls,, by lodg- ing in their sides, necessarily spread the fire through- out. " In this perilous situation, and the impossibility there was of using either sails or oars, it was judged adviseable to withdraw the people, especially as the enemysa fire, now without opposition, was directed to point blank objects. As soon as the enemy found the fire from the floating batteries was totally silenced, they fent off several of their gun and other armed boats, with which they took some of our's going and coming, making prisoners of all the troops that remained in the floating batteries to be relieved ; so that by day- break next morning they had 355 of our people in their possession, including many wounded, who, we are informed, are treated with the greatest tenderness and humanity by General Elliott. Our loss a- mounted to 86 killed, 138 dangerously wounded, 111 slightly wounded, 291 prisoners, and 105 missing." Extract of a letter from a gentleman who arrived from " Jamaica " I am at laft happily arrived in England, from the West- Indies, after being a witness to scenes of distress, the recital of which will impress every feeling mind with the moft painful sensations. The Augustus Cae- sar, Capt. Fowler, the ship in which I was passenger, did not join the fleet ' till the 22d of August. It then consisted of near 100 merchantmen, one armed ( hip, one store- ship, and one hospital ship, under convoy of seven sail of the line and one frigate. Nothing mate- rial happened to us until the 3d of September, when the Hector parted company. On the 8th it blew a hard gale, and on the 9th the Cato made the signal of distress. She was so leaky as to be obliged to leave us; and Admiral Greaves, whose attention to the whole of the fleet can never be sufficiently admired, thought proper for the Pallas frigate to attend her to Halifax. On the 16th, our fleet being off the Banks of New- foundland, in lat. 42. 15. long. 48. 55. and consist- ing of about Jo sail, exclusive of the convoy, was at- tacked with a hard gale of wind, which began about eight in the evening, and continued ' till about three the next morning, when it ceased. It ceased to re- turn with redoubled violence, as it was succeeded by a hurricane, which the oldest seaman hardly remem- bers equalled. Our fore- sail and mizen stay- sail were blown into ten thousand pieces; our cabbin windows stove in, several heavy seas shipped in the cabbin, and every thing afloat ' 1 it, whilst the ship laid down with her upper dead eyes under water so long, that had she not been one of the best sea boats in the world, fhe could not have survived. It is out of my power to convey to you any idea of the manner in which the wind blew ; fo very unlike any thing I ever heard, I cannot attempt the description. Our poor fellows were incessantly labouring at the pumps, fatigued, and almost exhausted ; and to encrease our distress, one of the guns broke loose in the galley. Between five and six it began to abate, and the objects which presented themselves at day keenly added to our feel- ings. Signals of distress surrounded us 5 the Glo- rieux having every thing gone but her main and mizen- mast; the Ramillies with her main and mizen- mast gone; and the Centaur entirely dismasted. On one side you might see wrecks floating by, with poor wretches lashed to them, making every effort to at- tract attention j on the other, still more unfortunate objects buffeting the waves, and calling out for af- sistance by every appellation which could excite our companion ; whilst we, unable to afford them any, could only pay the melancholy tribute of a pitying tear; surrounding sharks were watching every wave to seize their prey. As the wind decreased, between eight and nine, we formed great hopes the gale was entirely over; we were mistaken ; it blew with continual violence ' till the Friday morning, creating an agitation in the sea, A Legal Share in the LOTTERY, 1782, Gratis, Approved by COUNCIL.

" On Wednesday last an experiment of an inte- refting nature was made at St. John's house, in this city, by Mr. Walker, Lecturer of Philosophy, be- fore the Speaker of the House of Commons, and moft of the clergy and gentry in the town and neighbour- hood : it was to shew in what manner it is supposed the French have so long threatened to set our fleets on fire in the time of action. He filled a glass grenade with a certain liquor, and then threw it against a wall, on the bursting of the grenade, the wall and pavement were instantly in flames, continued so some time, and were with difficulty extinguished."

The two men lived in Bristol some years. - Monday se'nmght in the evening, a footpad, stopped a one- horse chaise, in which was a man and two wo- men, near the Blue Lodge, in the upper Bristol road, and presented a large horse pistol to the breast of one of the women, and demanded their money but the man resolutely refused to give it, and a post- chaise approaching, the fellow immediately made off. The next morning a large pistol, wrapped up in a piece of blue cloth, supposed to belong to the above fellow, was found in a hedge in Weston- lane, loaded with seven pieces of a pewter spoon. Sunday evening Mr. Gale, nephew to Mr. Bow- den, in Wade's Passage, returning home from Lans- down in company with a young lady, was stop- ped within a few yards of the first gate entering on the down, by two footpads, armed with a pistol and a bill- hook, who robbed the lady of her shoe- buckles and a few halfpence, and Mr. Gale of one. guinea and is. his handkerchief, and metal watch ( maker's name Curtis, London, No. 2670) with a steel chain, and gold and steel keys.

About one o'clock on Sunday morning last, the houfe of Mrs. Edith Hall, an aged gentlewoman, of Cricklade, Wilts, was entered a the window of her bed- chamber, by a couple of ruffi- ans with dark lanthorns, and disguised in smock frocks, one of whom was armed with a pistol and 1 cutlass, who having forced Mrs. Hall and her maid into a closet naked, kept them confined in that con. dition for several hours, threatening instant death F . they cried out, or attempted to alarm the neigh- bourhood; and having lighted up several candles, rifled the house of bank- notes, cash, plate, and other valuables, to a very considerable amount; remaining in the house till near day- light. — One of the above villains is apprehended, who proves to be an inha- bitant of the place, and a reward of fifty pounds is offered for apprehending his accomplice or accom- plices. _ Thursday, evening, between eight and nine o'clock, three robberies' were committed between Burford and Witney, in this county, by two footpads, one of whom had a pistol and the other a hanger or cutlass. From a butcher, of Clanville, they took four- guineas from Mr Holland, of Burford, who was returning from Whitney market; fifty shillings'; and from Ri- chard Bishop, of this place, a guinea and half, seven shillings and sixpence, and a plain silver watch, maker's name John Tringham, London^ No. 22,928, They were middle sizcd youngish men, and were not disguised, except by being pretty much muffled about their necks . with handkerchiefs. At the fair at Shipston- upon- Stower, On Tuesday last, there were a numerous gang of thieves, pick- pockets, sharpers, & c. who, amongst other depreda- tions, committed the following ' robbery :--- four of them came to Mr. Rogers's, at the White Bear Inn, and getting in a room up stairs, shnt themselves in, and with the help of a picklock and a strong pen- knife, ( which they left behind) broke open a bureau, out of which they stole bank bills to the amount of 55!. and about 2ol. in cash, together with several promissory notes for money due to Mr. Rogers, with which they got clear off.--- One of the suspected villains was a thickset man, marked with the small- pox, and ap- peared like a grazier ; another had much the ap- pearance and dress of a livery- servant The day after the fair, one of the above description was de- tected in picking pockets, who was so compleat an adept- that in about half an hour he had picked the pockets of near twenty of the spectators at a bull- bait- ing He was carried before the Rev. Mr. Selwyn, and is committed to take his trial at the next assizes at Worcester. " LON DON, Friday, Octoher 18. Some letters were received yesterday from Mr. Fitz- herbert, his Majesty's Resident at the Court of Brus- sels, with an account that the negociations for a peace at Paris, between the belligerent powers, are at a stand at present, on accouat of the exorbitant de- mands made by the French and Dutch. We are assured by the accounts which arrived last night, that Don Louis Cordova, has only forty- two ships under his command, though the news- papers for some time have uniformly assured us they are not fewer than fifty: ships of the line. m . fer living under our free government, to the mutilated constitution of their Republick, when it was unanimously determined to recommend the matter in the strongest manner to his Majesty's consideration, and in consequence dispatches to that purpose were sent off the next day; since which, we hear with pleasure', that his Majesty has declared he would exert the Royal bounty in their favour, by fi grant of 25,000l. to defray the expenses of the emi- grants from their own country to Ireland, and a like sum in aid, of their establishment when arrived. Be- sides the offer made the Genevese by the Earl of Ely of a settlement In the county of Wexford j the Duke of Leinster has made not only a similar offer in the county of Kildare, but added thereto such encourage- ments as it is thought will determine the emigrants immediately to begin their journey. A Genevese gentleman was lately in thjs city on the business of the emigration, who is a person of great character and considerable property. He has re- ceived the greatest encouragement and marks of fa- vour from the ministers in Great Britain and Ireland, and is now on his return to his native country, in or- der to prepare all matters respecting this great busi- ness. J Last night an exprefs arrived in town from Ply- mouth, with intelligence of the Achilles, Capt. Dun- - can, being arrived at that place from St. Lucia. She sailed from thence the 5th of September, and brings advice of the July packet being arrived out, and that the fleet which sailed from Corke the 27th of June, was arrived at Barbadoes. By this vessel we : likewise learn, that- on the 15th of August a terrible fire happened at Basseterre in Guadaloupe, which consumed a great many houses, and did Other consi- derable damage.: Yesterday an express arrived at the Admiralty from Ireland, with advice of the arrival of Admiral ' Greaves in the Belle, Capt. Forster, at Waterford. We do not' learn that she brings any particulars rela- tive to the both missing ships. 1 This day advice was received from Ireland of the safe arrival; at the Cove of Corke, of the Old Har- bour,- Capt. Powers and the Pallas two of the missing Jamaica fleet. A Dutch ship, prize to the Pegase man of war, of . 74 guns, is safe arrived at Falmouth : she was laden with stores and bound for Brest. Advice is recived from Newfoundland, that five sail of American privateers, three belonging to Boston, ' and the other two to Salem, are all taken on the Banks since the late hurricane, by his Majesty's cruisers, and carried into St. John's, - * 1 • F Extract of a letter from Chatham, Oct. 24. " The Triumph, of 74 guns, is put into com- mission, and Capt. Affleck appointed to the com- mand." Extract of a letter from Portsmouth, Oct. 14. " Yesterday a man went down in the old machine to the Royal George, in order to get the guns up, when he slung one brass gun, twelve- pounder, which was hoisted on board the Cabot brig. There are great hopes of his getting up several more." The following stroke of royal pleasantry occasioned no small entertainment at one of the royal hunts last week : Soon after his Majesty had joined the com- pany assembled on the occasion, and the ceremony of turning out the stag had taken place, the King ex- claimed, " And now turn out the young sportsman 1" when immediately the door of one of the royal coaches was opened, from which descended the Prince Octavius, his Majesty's youngest son, not yet four years old, dressed in a black cap, boots, coat, waist- coat, & c. in every respect like those of the King— The surprise and laughter occasioned by this was equally novel and pleasing. His Majesty has presented Dr. Heberden with a very handsome gold snuff- box, the inside lid of which ' ' is also ornamented with a beautiful miniature of the King, as a mark of his approbation of the great care and attention shewn by that gentleman to the case of the late Prince Alfred, with whom the Doctor sat up the whole night preceding his Royal Highness's death. Mrs. Siddons made her first appearance at Drury- lane theatre on Thursday last in the character of Isa- bella, and received the unbounded applause of a large and brilliant audience. She is universally considered as a most valuable acquisition to that theatre. Monday evening, about eight o'clock, six ruffians, armed with pistols, cutlasses, & c. went to the house of a miller at Rasebury, who being from home, they se- cured all the servants, and robbed them of what mo- ney and watches they had, then fastened them to- gether in a room, and plundered the house of all the wearing apparel, linen, plate, & c. after which they regaled themselves for upwards of two hours in a room belonging to the mill. It is supposed they are the same fellows who a few days since broke into and plundered a surgeon's house at Egham, of plate to the value of upwards of 150l. Yesterday came on at the Old Bailey, the trial of John Gray, for the murder of Mr. Hurd, in a lane near to the Shepherd and Shepherdess, — Milbourne, an accomplice, swore, that on the night the murder was committed, the prisoner at the bar, Gatkin and Stilton, lately executed for robbing the Rev. Mr. Bromley, and himself, attacked three persons in the place above- mentioned, and perceiving they intended to resist, he fired a pistol, to intimidate them; after robbing one of them, he jumped over the hedge into the field, where he was soon after joined by Gatkin, who said, Gray and I followed one of the men that ran away, we have done him, and Gray has shot him as dead as a stone. The other then coming up, they all went to Gray's house, and divided their booty.— Watson swore that he is a servant to Capt. Best, and was along with his master, and the deceased, at the time of the robbery ; when the men came up he en- deavoured to fire his pistols, but they both flashed in the pan ; this drew upon him the vengeance of the vil- lains, and, after robbing and beating him very much, they threw him into a ditch, where he remained until all was quiet, he then got up, and after walking a few yards discovered the body of Mr. Hurd, quite cold, and the upper part of the head shot away. Capt. Best. related the particulars of the murder, but could prove nothing against the prisoner, only that the man who shot Mr. Hurd was about the size of the prisoner. Two of the turnkeys at Clerkenwell, swore that they were present when Gray said, that he had a scuffie with the deceased, and snapped two pis- tols- at him ; after receiving several blows, he called Stilton to assist, who struck Mr. Hurd several blows with a hanger; disapproving of this barbarity, he en- deavoured to catch the hanger upon his pistol, but that in the scuffle it went off, and the . unfortunate gentleman was killed. The jury found him guilty'. The Recorder immediately passed sentence on him. He will be executed 0n Saturday morning. At the sessions at the Old Bailey 011 Wednefday, Mr. Akerman represented to the bench, that the number of prisoners in Newgate was so great, that he could not engage to keep them in safety ; and that they were so daring, that the best language he or his assistants could get from them, were dreadful curses and threatenings, with drawn knives in their hands. He said, that his people were every moment in such danger of their lives, that it was with difficulty he could procure men to run the hazard ; and that every day five or six pair of fetters were- sawed asunder, without any possibility of his preventing it. Should these desperadoes break loose, there would be no living near London with any degree of security.

Madrid, Sept. 27. - • ACCORDING to accounts from the. camp at dP A i> St. Roch ( now called Buen Vista) • nothing material has happened since the 13th. Our ® ® batteries continue firing at intervals, which is warmly returned by the enemy. We have made a breach in the wall, towards the new mole, of five yards long, and another of three. Some Irish deserters from our troops, prove to be spies sent into the place, who found means to return with the prisoners sent back by General Elliot. They say the garrison are tolerably well provided with flour, salt beef, powder and ball, but that they have not more than 600 shells left. Ten thousand men have lately been embarked on board the men of war ; information having been received that the English Admiral had six regiments of infantry on board. The King has sent orders to the Duke de Crillon to press forwards the siege. LONDON, Saturday, Oct. 19. St. James's, Oct. 16. This day Lord Viscount Townshend kissed his Majesty's hand, on being ap- pointed Captain of a corps of light horse and infantry, called the Norfolk Rangers; being composed of his lordship's neighbours and principal tenants in that County. Lond. Gaz. Yesterday the agreeable news was received at the Admiralty and India House, of the arrival off Ply- mouth Sound, of the four following East- India ships : the Duke of Portland, Capt. Sutton; Royal Char- lotte, Capt. Cotton; Contractor, Capt. Baldwyn ; and Ponsborne, Capt. Le Messurier. The afore- mentioned ships came under convoy, from St. He- lena, of his Majesty'ss( hip Mcdway, Capt. Edgar. Capt, Edgar in his dispatches takes notice of his having fallen in with the Atlantic, Capt. Taylor, one of the Jamaica fleet, for London, which ship was likewise arrived with him ; and 011 the 8th instant, off Scilly, he spoke with the Pegase of 74 guns, Capt. George Berkeley. The Southampton frigate of 32 guns, Captain Affleck, is arrived at Portsmouth from New- York, from whence she sailed on the 15th of September, and brings the agreeable news of Admiral Pigot's arrival there with 23 sail of the line and a number of prizes, amongst which are four Spanish ships from Cadiz to the Havannah, two of them valued at 40,0001. earii, three stout American privateers, and the Thorn sloop of war of 18 guns, which he retook near Florida. A considerable number of merchant ships and small pri- vateers had also been driven 0n shore by Admiral Pigot in Virginia and, the Delaware, as he- coasted it along from- the Havannah to New- York. A confirmation is likewise received, that the French ship the Magnifique, of 74 guns, was lost going into Boston, the men and stores saved; and the 80 gun ship, supposed to be the Triomphante, on board of which was the Admiral, received so much damage, that it was thought ( he would be condemned as unfit for further service. There were 12 other French ships of the line repairing at Boston, commanded by Mons. Vaudreuil, but they were in so bad a condition, that it would require three or four months to put them in good repair. The news- papers and private letters from New- York agree in giving a wretched description of the American finances, and that parties had been formed in several states, which' openly defied the power of the Congress: one of the commissaries had been ar- rested for not fulfilling his engagements with the farmers, and on his application to Congress, com- plaining of the hardships he suffered, in not being Supplied with the money he had been promised, they openly acknowledged their inability, and supplicated the country people to have patience till they should receive some expected remittances from Europe. On the whole they write from New- York, that anarchy tind confusion was gaining ground very fast in the A- merican provinces. We are sorry to hear, that no accounts have yet been received of the four sail of the line that were with the Jamaica fleet in- the hard gale of wind on the Banks of Newfoundland; and that the greatest ap- prehensions are entertained for the safety of at least three of them, as well as for upwards of 20 sail of merchant ships yet unaccounted for. The Irish mail of this day has brought letters from Corke up to the nth; from Waterford to the 12th, and from Lime- rick to the 10th, but no further arrivals at either of the above places. The Artois and Nemesis frigates, with a sloop of war, sailed on the 12th from Waterford, to look out for the Jamaica fleet, in order to give them every as- sistance in their power. On Wednesday came on, in the Court of Directors at the India House, the question of the recal of Go- vernor Hastings, when, after a long and warm de- bate, it was carried for his recal by a considerable majority. A General Court, however, must ulti- mately decide the matter. India Stock rofe on Monday from 127 to 136^, in ; consequence of the late favourable advices from Ben- gal ; but some insinuations having been thrown out, that these accounts were fabricated to answer a parti- cular purpose, this matter will be very fully enquired into at the general court of Proprietors on Thurfday next. In the mean time we are assured, that the Go- vernor- General of Bengal has written a short letter to a gentleman now in London, which has been very generally communicated, in which Mr. Hastings says, " Here, in Benares, in Oude, all our affairs prosper. I can answer for this government. Its exertions shall equal your most sangnine wishes, and I have no fear from their effects while we direct them." Sir William Draper certainly brings Governor Mur- ray to a trial for the loss of Minorca: it is to bea- general court martial, and will sit on the 12th of No- vember. The general court martial to be held on General Murray, will bring to London all the Generals at present in England. The charges of Sir William Draper against General, Murray, go into several articles :— That he allowed himself to be taken by surprise, tho' he had received abundant intimation of the enemy's intentions against Minorca ; that he acted, even after the landing of the enemy, in a very uni- officer- like manner ; and that, in particular, he restrained Sir William Draper from those exertions which evidently might have resisted the disgraceful surrender of the place. To the above- mentioned allegations General Mur- ray replies Not guilty ; and in particular insists that he cannot be so as long as he proves, which he is able; to do, that he kept the place four days longer than Sir William S* him to resistance. Some discontents having arisen among the colliers and forgemen in' Staffordshire, on account of the ad- vance in malt, and some other articles, from the late badness of the weather in the- barley harvest, there have been assemblies of those people at Walsal, Wol- verhampton, & c. ' But Sir John Wriotesly, and other gentlemen attending, and demonstrating that their mode of proceeding would infallibly tend to increase, and not lessen their grievances, the people dispersed,, and on Thursday last all was said to be quiet again. This day the session ended at the Old Bailey, when eight convicts received sentence of death, among whom was one Syddal, just come from ballast heaving. He behaved with great audaciousness while the Re- corder was passing sentence on him, laughing almost the whole time. The. others behaved with great de- cency. This morning was executed at Tyburn, John Gray, far the wilful murder of Mr. Hurd. He waS dressed in a suit of black, with a hat- band in his hat. He prayed fervently, and behaved with great decency. He was attended by the under- sheriff, and other officers; and after execution was brought back in a ' hackney- coach to Surgeons- hall, to be anatomised.

But as the Gazette is silent, and our own private letters mention that the English and French fleets are in the harbours of New York antl Boston, we cannot give the least degree of credit to the report. Extract of a letter from London, Saturday Evening. " Seven sail of the line, and three stout frigates, sailed from the different ports of Holland last week : it is suppofed that they collected into one squadron, and are gone for Brest, as nothing hath been heard of their appearance in the North Sea. It is very fortu- nate that our four China ships, under convoy of the Medway, which are just arrived, did not fall in with' them. . " A petition hath been presented to the Stadtholder, signed by Admiral Hartsinck and several other of the Admirals and oldest Captains in the Dutch fleet, com- plaining of the numerous libels which have been pub- lished, in which their names have been freely men- tioned, as impeding the preparations and weakening the efforts of their fleet. They defire the Prince of Orange to use his utmost endeavours 111 the Assembly of the States, to punish the authors, and repress in future the publication of such scandalous insinuations — adding, that if this be not done, ' they will one and all throw up their commissions, and leave the defence of the republic to those who may be thought more worthy of the trust.' " A gentleman of character in London has received the copy of a letter sent by the King of Spain- to his Admiral, Don Cordova, dated the 20th of Septem- ber last, in which his Spanish Majesty expresses the utmost confidence in the skill, abilities, and courage of his Admiral : he tells him, that the English are coming with a powerful fleet to the relief of Gibral- tar ; but he trusts that he will exert the great force which he commands, with effect to prevent it, and to drive away the enemy with disgrace and loss He reminds him, that the eyes of all Europe are upon him ; and he doubts not but he will prove, himself by his valour, to be of true Castilian descent, and worthy of the affection and esteem of his Sovereign,. " The letters from France yesterday mention-, that the combined fleet left the Bay of Algezires on the 20th of September, and were to cruise off Cape St. Mary's, to wait for Lord Howe. They are here said to consift of 51 sail of the line ; but we have reason to think that many of them are in bad condition. We learn direct from France, that one of Vau- dreuil's fleet, the Magnifique, a 74. gun- ship, foun- dered in the Streights of Bahama ; and by a frigate of 32 guns, which 5s: just arrived at Portmouth from New- York, we have a report of four more French ships of the line, under Vaudreuil, being a- shore in the harbour of Boston, and likely to be lost. The frigate brings the news of Admiral Pigot's being safe at New- York, with 23 sail of the line. On his pas- sage he captured two large transports, well armed, and laden with naval stores and provisions for Vau- dreuil." On Thursday last was married Mr. John Bedford, attorney at law, of Pershore in Worcestershire, to Miss Fortune, only daughter of George Fortune, Esq; late of Salisbury- Square, London, deceased. Lately was married, at Alvington, in this county, Mr. John Powell, stonemason, to Miss Lucy Warren, eldest daughter of Mr. Warren, perfumer, in Cheap- side, London. On Tuesday last owner Smith was married to Mrs. Humphreys, widow of the late owner Humphreys,. of this city. Saturday last died, at her house in Barton- street, Mrs. Blanch, widow of the late John Blanch, Esq; of this city. On the 10th inst. Flock Roberts and Robert Smith, Gents, were elected Bailiffs of the borough of Tewkesbury for the year ensuing. About seven o'clock on Tuesday evening last, a gentleman was attacked about three miles from Ci- rencester, on the Tetbury road, by two footpads, one armed with a pistol, the other with a cutlass, who robbed him of three guineas and twelve shillings. They seemed to be stout young men, with dark- co- loured cloaths, and, by their language and manner, were judged to come from the metropolis .--- About ten minutes after they robbed a servant of Mr. Tug- well, of Beverstone, of 9s. Last Wednesday night Mr. Hope Hayward, of Forthampton, spending an evening in his neighbour- hood, chose to walk home, and sent his horse by a servant; who, as he was passing through a gate,- was surprised by a man on horseback that rushed upon him, and endeavoured to seize his bridle. Mr. Hayward's horse being very spirited, started and ran away with the servant, and the highwayman having taken the precaution to leave open the gates of the field, that he. might not be impeded in his flight, the servant got off Tt is supposed the robber was lying in wait for Mr. Hayward, who was fired at a few weeks ago' near his own house. On Wednesday last a young man, said to have been an inhabitant of Charlton Kings, was apprehended at Ashborne in Derbyshire, for stealing two coach horses from Thomas Browne, Esq; of Sevenhamp- ton, in this county.--- He had dispofed of the horses before he was detected, but they were afterwards se- cured for the owner. Encomiums too great cannot be paid to the two justices, William Nourse and William Matthews, Esqrs. who, on the evening previous Ross sent the constables to apprehend all the . vagabonds, that assembie at those times, different alehouses, 45 of these miscreants were taken into custody, and the above gentlemen sat on the bench from seven o'clock in the morning till six in the evening, examining them, and the next day passed them off to their parishes. The overseers and constables were particularly active upon this occasion. When measures like these become a general practice, the country may expect to he relieved from these pests of societv.

XKf ARMED with a benevolent Wish to profit and please our fellow Christians, we have resolved to furnish them with a Repository of Divine Knowledge, fo happily calculated on the general Principles of Christianity, as to be highly accept- able to all Ranks of People who prosess the Christian Name, and which will conduce no less to the Benefit of Society than of Individuals. In the first and second Divisions of our Work, namely, Modern and Antient Christian Biography, will be presented the Lives and Characters of such of our present Bishops as have been conspicuous in defending the Doctrines of Chris- tianity, and other celebrated Divines and Characters of former and later Ages, Fathers, primitive Christians, Martyrs, Sec. eminent for their Learning ot Piety, such as Dr. Porteus, Bishop of Chester, Dr. Hurd, Bifhop of Worcester, the late Dr. Newton, Bishop of Bristol, Secker, Latimer, Burnet, Beveridge, Hoadley, Pearce, Wilkins, Wilson, Dr. Watts, Dr. Young, Usher, Stillingfleet, Tillotson, Addison, Sher- lo -, Hall, Gardener, Doddridge, Hervey, & c. in two other Heads, which we have allotted for Astro- Theology and Physico- Theology, we shall exhibit the Wisdom and Wonders of Divine Providence m the Works of Crea tion, See. Our next Department will include Divinity, systematical, historical, and practical, and will comprize all those impor- tant Matters which relate to the Faith and Practice of every Chriftian. The seventh, eighth, and ninth Parts are allotted for Christian, Jewish, and Roman Antiquities; History of Monu- ments and Tombs in Westminster Abbey, and of St. Paul's Cathedral, London ; but it is necessary to observe, that a Variety of other instructive and highly pleasing Articles will be introduced,— Scripture Chronology and Geography - the Rise, Progress and Evidences of Chrsftianity— The Christian Monitor, and Family Instructor— A Summary of Ecciesiastical Hiftory ; and many other Particulars. The tenth Division will contain every Thing striking and entertaining, serious and profitable; Dissertations, Letters, Essays, Remarks, Thoughts, Anecdotes, critical and prac- tical Pieces, Solutions of doctrinal and scriptural Difficulties, Sec. The eleventh Space is allotted for Poetical Divinity, and Pieces of a Moral Nature; and the twelfth will contain, for the Use of the Clergy, a Lift of Church Livings in the Gift of the King.

To close this comprehensive Undertaking, a brief Diary will be annexed monthly of the most material Occurrences, foreign and domestic, with a Lift of Deaths, Births, Marriages, Pre- ferments, Bankrupts, Bill of Mortality, Sec. which will be sufficient to furnish Families and Individuals with an Idea of the Times. Such is the Plan we offer to the Public, and do not doubt that a Design so exceedingly useful will be very favourably re- ceived; by which Means every Family, and the rifing Gene- ration especially, will have an Opportunity of possessing ( at a very easy Rate) a rational serious Performance, inculcating the most solemn Truths in the most engaging Manner, where- in nothing of Indecency or Impropriety shall ever be admitted. Truth shall guard our Entrance, Virtue conduit our Pens, Piety direct our Steps, and the present and future Felicity of our Readers be our invariable Aim. *„* Respecti to the internal Execution of The Nxw CHRISTIAN'S MAGAZINE, we have said sufficient; but dis- daining to derive Credit from mere empty Promises, which are in the Power of the meanest Adventurer, we shall only take a Pride in that Applause which flows from the Perfor- mance of our Engagements.

RAIKES, Southgate- Srreet, Glocester-. \ RHEUMATISM; The following Cafe, tranfmitted by Sir WIH, IAM LEI, Bjrt. will be a farther Proof to the Public of the Efficacy of Dr. James's Powder, and Analeptic Pills, in this Com- plaint. « JOHN HARMAN, a poor Labourer, had " been often afflicted with the Rheumatism; in ja- " nuary last it fell into his Leg, Ancle and Foot, attended ^ " with great Pain, Coldness, and Numbness of the Foot, of " which he had very little Use, and hardly any Feeling from " outward Impression; he was worse in Bed, and no sensible " Perspiration was obtained from warm Liquors taken for that " Purpose; he took three Analeptic Pills, by my Desire, 12 " Nights successively; they produced no other sensible Ope- " ration than keeping his Body gently open, and relieved his " Complaint but little; I therefore ordered him Half a Paper, " or 10 Grains, of Dr. James's Powder, mixed with the " Powder of Crabs Eyes ; after taking this three Nights, the " Pain in the Foot and Leg abated, and moved into the Hip " and Side, and at the same Time a scorbutic Rash broke out " over the whole Body. A Repetition of the same Mixture " four successive Nights more carried off the Rash and Rheu- " matism, and on Sunday last he walked hither, about five " Miles from his Home, without any Difficulty; and he as- " sures me he has had only very slight Sensations of his Rheu- " matism upon Change of Weather for some Weeks past. " A few occasional Doses of the Analeptic Pills, will pro. " bably secure him from any formidable Return o£ his DiC " order. " I have done many great Cures in Rheumatisms with Dr. " James's Powdsrs and Pills; but as they were similar to " those which have been already published, 1 thought it un- " neccssary to trouble you with them.
