VOL. LX I. MONDAY, November 4, 1782. 3160 THURSDAY'S POST. LONDON, Tuesday, Oct. 29. ''^. ooooooocoooiABOUT two o'clock yesterday, an ex- press arrived at Lord Grantham's of- important advice of the I arrival of Lord Howe at Gibraltar, on ' Atlle Ioth of October. These dispatches mention that the combined fleet, con- sisting of near fifty sail of the line, were waiting for him before Alguezires, determined to obstruct the relief of the place. As Lord Howe was entering the Straits there came on a mofs violent gale from the Westward, by which our large ships were com- pelled to pass the Bay of Gibraltar, for fear of being upon the rocks near Europa Point, and seek for sea- room in the Mediterranean ; but Lord Howe ordered the transports to push for the Bay, and run in under the guns of the fortress, which by the admirable skill and activity of the English seamen was happily ef- fected during the storm, in spite of the French and Spanish fleet. The enemy, who were lying at single anchor, were no sooner apprised of Lord Howe's ap- proach, than they dipt their cables, but before they could clear the Bay, the English transports were got so near the garrison, that the enemy's ships, had they attempted to cut them off in such boiste- rous weather, must necessarily have been driven un- der the guns of our batteries, which would have pre- sently set them on fire. These advices say, that the gale threw the enemy into such confusion that two, large Spanilh ships, and one French, were totally lost. Some assert that the Spanish ships were the St. Trini- dad of 110 guns, and the Magnanime of 70. Others that it was the Conceptione of 90, instead of the St. Trinidad. The French ship was the Suffisant, a new 74. One of the French threedeckers lost all her masts, and many others suffered greatly. In this situ- ation the combined fleet were driven after Lord Howe into the Mediterranean. His Lordship, we are told, had sheltered his fleet under the African shore, where the promontory of Ceuta protected him from the gale. The enemy were collecting their fleet on the 14th, and seemed preparing to attack him.— The foregoing dispatches came from Lord Mountstuart, our am- bassador at Turin, who has agents in all the Italian ports, that furnish him with the earliest intelligence. His Lordship dispatched his own servant with it to Mr. Fitzherbert at Paris. Among the various accounts that appear in the pa- pers, there are some circumstances, which it may not be improper to relate, though their authenticity can- not yet be ascertained. As soon as the combined fleet were loose from their anchors, the greatest confusion arose from their numbers and want of order, ships running foul of one another carried away masts and yards. Don Cordova, with a great number of the young Spanish grandees, are said to be lost in the St Trinidad. At day- light on the morning of the 14th a large three decker, supposed to be that famous French first rate of 110 guns, the Majestueux, which was launched last year, was seen ashore near Europa Point, and the garrison were endeavouring to bring guns to bear to destroy her. The Invincible of no guns, was run ashore at Algesires to prevent her sink ing, The garrison fired at a 74, which was driven dismasted near one of the batteries, and set her twice 011 fire. In short, they say most of the fleet were dismasted, and of 50 sail of the line, riding at Alge sires the 8th of October, they have account of only 38 ; but it is supposed four bore away to Malaga, or some other of the Spanish ports. A French frigate of 40 guns, that was in the storm, got into Eltapona, small port where there is a fort, a few leagues from Gibraltar. The storm is said to have been as violent, as that which did so much damage at Gibraltar in February 1776. Such are the incidents that at present are the subject of conversation. Before a fort- night expires authentic dispatches may be looked for. first knocked her down, and afterwards strangled her. They then returned to the houfe, and plundered it of all the cash, and every thing of value besides, there being no male servant to prevent them." LAST Saturday was introduced to the public, at Drury- lane theatre, a Miss Brown, in the part of Fanny, in the Maid of the Mill. As far as may be conjectured from a first performance, and in so slight a character, much may be said in favour of Miss Brown. She is low in stature, young, and very pretty. As a finger, her musical tones seem more sweet than powerful; but, as a speaker, she certainly discovers no small portion of comic excellence. The admired tragic actress, Mrs. Siddons, was engaged for Drury lane theatre about six years ago, through the recommendation of Lord Bruce, now Earl of Aylesbury. Mr. Garrick, from that Noble- man's account of her talents, solicited his friend Mr. Bate to go down to Cheltenham in Glocestershire, where she then played in an itinerant company, in order to see her performance, commissioning him at the same time, if he approved of it, to engage her at what salary he thought adequate to her merit. Mr. B. saw her in the character of Rosalind, and was so struck with her propriety of diction, as well as natu- ral stile of acting, that he waited upon her the next morning, and immediately engaged her and her hus- band for the then ensuing winter at Drury- lane, on very handsome terms. — Mrs. Siddons made her first appearance on those boards in Portia, in the Merchant of Venice, and was very warmly received by the town : but owing to the indisposition of Mr. Garrick, and the crooked politics of that theatre, in conse- quence thereof, her talents soon became so neglected by those whose duty it was to support them, that be- fore the close of the season, her friends had the mor- tification to see her reduced to the miserable necessity of walking a dumb Venus in the revived pageant of the Stratford Jubilee.— Mrs. Siddons, to fly from si- milar indignities, retired from thence to the Bath theatre, where her genius met with every possible en- couragement from the liberality of Mr. Palmer, its manager; and where she continued, till her wide- spreading fame pointed her out once more to the pro- prietors of Drury- lane, as a theatrical object worthy their attention. The house always fills when she plays. Married. Saturday morning, at St. George's, Hanover- square, Robert Hopper, Esq; of the Tem- ple, to Miss Williamson, niece of Sir Hedworth Wil- liamson, Bart, high sheriff of the county of Durham.

" Tuesday evening a most cruel murther was com mitted on the body of Mrs. Philips, of Erismell, near. Mildenhall, in Suffolk. The circumstances attending this melancholy affair appear to be as follows :— Mrs. Philips was a person of considerable property, farmed a large estate of her own, and being of a very parsi- monious dispofition, it was generally understood that she kept a deal of ready cash by her, which was with- out doubt known to the perpetrators of this horrid act, as they planned a scheme of calling her up in the night, by informing her a dog was worrying some of her sheep. This had its effect : she immediately rose, and followed the persons to the supposed place, where ( from the marks of violence 0n her bead, and her throat appearing very black) it is supposed that they TO be LET, a compact FARM, situate in the Parish of Iron- Acton, in Glocesterlbire, Consisting | of from no, to 150 Acres.

PARKES his the Honour to announce, that his TWO LITTLE PLANS are now ready for the Public Judgment. His Attempts are wholly novel; he submits, too,, are perfectly just and eligible. In considering the Utile with the Dulti— in blending, as far as such a con tracted trifling Undertaking will admit of, the Love of one's Country with the Views of private Pursuit— he respecfully presumes that, he shall meet the Sanction of a patriotic Ad- miniftration ; no less than he shall gratify the Amor Patria, attain the Applause, extend the Patronage, and secure the Aid, of his Friends and the Public in general. The Lottery begins Drawing at Guildhall as soon as Mon- day Nov. 18, so that the more immediate Application be- comes necessary. It is a Matter of the greatest Notoriety to the whole Me- tropolis that the Reception of his Plans is already so great and general, as to almost exceed Belief. It is however to be ac- counted for, not only in the Novelty of the Plans, and the Smallness of the Risque ( 6d. or 3s* 6d.) but in the vast Va- riety and Value of the Sums which many Persons will inevi- tably win of him; and in these Persons obtaining, through those Winnings, a most important Chance and Interest EVERY Prize in the State Lottery, from the lowest of 20I. to the highest of 20, oool. — Many Thousands of these little Sums ( of 6d. and 3s 6d.) have been received by Mr. Parkes within these three Days, and the Number is fo rapidly in- creasing, that it is probable he will have compleated his li- mited Quantity by the 16th of November, if not before; and as soon as that stipulated Number is finished, no more Sums can be received by him, on any Account whatsoever. Persons in the Country are respectfully recommended to send their Commissions immediately to their Correspondents in London; in respect to how many Times Three Shillings and Sixpence in one Plan, and how many Sixpences in the 0- t.!: er, they may chuse to adventure. Post- paid Letters ( only) answered. *#* In the Irish State Lottery, 1781, Mr. Wood, of Walworth, won of Mr. Parkes, twenty State Tickets . for Sixpence, one of which ( No. 14,106) was afterwards drawn a Prize of ONE THOUSAND POUNDS. In the last English Lottery, Mr. Heggenbothom and Mrs. Crewe, of Skinner- Street, won of Mr. Parkes Twenty State Tickets for Sixpence, which they immediately sold for near 400I. In the last Irish State Lottery, 1782, Mr. Nicoll, No. 44, Conduit- Street, won of Mr. Parkes ( for a Correspondent) Fifty State Tickets for Sixpence', and Mr. Burbidge, Totten- ham Court- Road, Ten State Tickets for Sixpence. Mr. Parkes also paid, in the said three Lotteries, above FIVE THOUSAND POUNDS, to other fortunate Per- sons, won of him for such small Sums, that the whole toge- ther, which he. originally received of them for their fortunate . Policies, amounted to no more than il. 19s. 6d. It is a Circumstance publicly known, that Mr. Parkes was the original Deviser and Publisher of such small priced Policies — that he has always sold greatly more of them than all of the Office- keepers ( his Imitators) in London put together—- that he sold above Fifty Thousand in the last Irish State Lottery— and that the Demand for his Sixpenny, and Three Shilling and Sixpenny Policies, in the present English State Lottery, is still beyond all Example 1 To CLOTHIERS.

Monday evening, Mr. Fuller, a gentleman of Wells, was robbed, on his return to that city, by a footpad, of his watch and three gui- neas. The same man also robbed two farmers, and another person, whom he stript of their clothes' He is supposed to be one Pear, of Cricklade, lately adver- tised for robbing the Trowbridge mail. It is said. he keeps a woman, whom he supplies with clothes, by stripping such females as fall in his way. _ Wednesday last a gentleman was robbed by two highwaymen, mounted on bay horses, near the Cross- Hands, of cash and notes to the amount of near 1O0L They were dressed like farmers The same day a far- mer was robbed near the Monument on Lansdown, by two highwaymen, of seven guineas. Friday evening Mr. Lenton, pawnbroker, of Salis- bury, was robbed of his watch, and about 50s. in fil- ver, by two footpads, on the London road, about four miles from Salisbury. They were dressed in surtout coats, and were armed with a pistol and hanger, which they presented with many horrid oaths. Birmingham, Oct. 28. At a meeting at Dudley, on Wednesday last, the maltsters agreed not to give more than 4s. id. per bushel for barley delivered at their malt- house, for one month from that day j and like- wise concluded to sell their new malt at 6s. LONDON, Friday, November 1. Last night arrived in_ town the following Captains of Ja- maica ships, from France, viz. Cox, of the Heator; Dela- more, of the Dorothy ; Howe, of the Britannia ; and Carr, of the Paruassus.— The three first ships were carried info dif- ferent French ports in the Bay of Biscay ; but the latter was retaken by a Liverpool privateer, and sent in there. Captain Co*, of the Hector, two days after the storm which did all the mischief, fell in with the Ville de Paris, of 100 guns, near the Western- Islands. She had then lost her main and mizen- masts, and was otherwise much damaged. No other ship was in company with her, and Capt. Cox staid by her ' till blowing weather, with a thick fog, separated them. Before he left France an account had been received there of the Alliance A- merican frigate having captured the Commerce, Sims; Anne, Paterson, for Clyde ; and two other of the Jamaica fleet. The Winchelsea, Capt. Sir John Botlase Warren, is arrived at Portfmouth from Newfoundland, with dispatches from Ad- miral Campbell, of his proceedings on that station, and a list of the prizes taken by the ships under his command. He brings the news that the Caton, of 64 guns, and the Pallas, of 31, were arrived at Halifax. x Tho' the Caton, of 64 guns, and the Pallas frigate arrived at Hallifax, yet it does not in the least place the situation of the other men of war, that were convey to the Jamaica fleet, in a more pleasing light; on the contrary, every day produces same fresh matter of alarm for their situation. The above two vessels separated by order from the Admiral, on the 7th of September, and the storm did not happen ' till the 16th, ( a that in all probability they did not feel its fury.— The Ville de Paris, of 100 guns, being alone on the 18th of September, is a bad sign, that the Centaur, of 74 guns, is lost ; as on the 17th, the former was lying- to to assist the latter, when it ap- pears she was herself so much disabled as to stand in need of the same assistance from others. The Hector, of 74 guns, which was leaky, and parted from the fleet the day before the gale, and the Glorieux, of 74, have neither of them been seen, or heard of, since the 17th. There is no probability of their going to Hallifax or New- York, as they were to the eastward of both thoss places, and for a fortnight after the storm, there. 4 i >— - I was a strong and constant gale of wind at West: the only hopes there are for their safety is, the chance of their bearing away for the West Indies, or Lisbon, unless they put into some of the Western Islands, which tho' a bad situation for a large ship at that time of the year, is nevertheless an idea that ' is entertained at the Admiralty. The Actionaire French prize of 64 guns, at Plymouth, which has been repaired and fitted, is now called the King George, by order of the Admiralty Board. The Lords of the Admiralty have put the Salisbury, of 50 guns, into commission. She is fitting up for Commodore Johnstone, who is to have a command. On Monday morning the Duke of Kingston, outward- bound Eaft Indiaman, Capt. Nutt, by some accident, ran a- ground in the river, at the Half- way- reach, near Woolwich ; but it is hoped the ship will be recovered with less damage than was at first expected, as several small vessels have been dispatched to lighten her. The Rev. Thomas Tate is presented by his Grace the Archbishop of York, to the vicarage of Sheriff Hutton, va- cant by the death of the Rev. Mr. Hawxwell. Dispensations have passed tbe Great Seal to enable Ed- ward Chambers Jones, Clerk. M. A. to hold the rectory of Llanfannan, together with the vicarage of Llanufydd, both ' in the diocese of St. Asaph— To the Rev. Robert Hastings, of the rectory of Esterkele North and South in the county of Lincoln, together with the vicarage of Edlington, in the same county. — Also to the Rev. Humphrey Shuttleworth, of the vicarage of Kirkham, in the county of Lancaster, together with the vicarage of Preston, in the same county. The hop duty in Kent this year, it is said, does not a- mount to 7000I. The grand question for continuing Mr. Hastings in his government, or dismissing him from it, was yesterday deter- mined. by ballot at the India House, and the Numbers were as follow : For Mr. Hastings, - 418 Against him, - 73 Majority, 355 By this, the resolution of the Court of Directors is voted to be rescinded. Governor Johnstone then moved, " That it be recommend- ed to the Court of Directors to dispatch, as fast as possible, to India, an account of the determination that the proprietors had come to on ballot, in order that any bad effects, which a mere whisper of the design of removing the Governor Ge- neral might have created, should be done away." Extract of a letter from Coxheath, Oct. 29. " Thit morning Capt. Townshend, of the 45th regiment, nephew of Lord Townshend, and who at the death of his mother would have been Lord Greenwich, was found dead in his marquee. He went to bed the night before seemingly in perfect health, and when his servant went in to awake him this morning, found him quite cold. His estate and title will now go to his brother, Capt. Townsend, of the 59th regi- ment, who acts as Aid- de- Camp to Lord Townshend at War- ley camp. " This is the most tempestuous day we have had this cam- paign : two petty suttling- houses have been blown down ; up- wards of 20. marquees and loo tents have been blown away, and it still continues quite a hurricane." Wednesday morning, about half past two o'clock, a most dreadful fire broke out at the house of Mr. Vale, pastry- cook, on Snow- Hill. It was first discovered by a hackney- coach- man, but the flames were then so violent, that it was impos- sible for the family to save themselves. — Mr. Vale, his wise, an infant child, and the nurse who attended Mrs. Vale in her lying- in, perished in the flames, as did also a young man, said to be an apprentice. A gentleman who lodged in the second floor, escaped by leaping from the window upon a feather- bed held for him in the street. The bodies of four of the persons who perished, were taken out of the ruins by ten o'clock. The two adjacent houses were considerably damaged. Monday evening, while the carriage of Lord Maitland was standing at tbe post office- gate, in Lombard- Street, some vil- lains found means to cut off a portmanteau trunk full of rich clothes, See. with which they got clear off. This morning thirty- feven convicts which have been sen- tenced to Africa and America for seven years, were brought out of Newgate and Wood- Street compter, and put into three carts, and conveyed to Blackwall, where they were put on board two clofe lighters, and carried down to the ships which lie at Gravesend ready to receive them. Among them is Patrick Madan and Laetitia Goodhall, mother of tbe unfor- tunate Charlotte Goodhall, lately executed The tragedy of the Grecian Daughter was last night per- formed at Drury- lane theatre to a brilliant and crowded audi- ence. Mrs. Siddons, in Euphrasia, not only equalled, but ap- peared to exceed the expectations formed of her in so arduous a task as that of representing a capital part that had been played by Mrs. Crawford and Mrs. Yates. The prejudice of the people is generally strong for stage veterans and favourites j but here all prejudice was done away, and merit evidently took place of every other consideration.

Admiralty- Office, November 2, 1782.. VICE Admiral Campbell, Commander in Chief y of his Majesty's ships and vessels at New- foundland has transmitted to Mr. Stephens, his letter of the 23d of September last, a list of prizes taken by the squadron under his com- mand. [ The prizes are nine American privateers, from 7 to 18 guns ] [ Thus far London Gazette.] LONDON, Saturday, Nov. 2. A report prevailed yesterday in the city, that an action had taken place between Lord Howe an the combined fleets of France and Spain, in which it is said the English suffered a loss of six or seven ships, but that the enemy lost sixteen. This report had ef- fect sufficient to raife the ltocks half per cent, but a messenger being dispatched from Mr. Tayler; Master of New Lloyd's Coffee Houfe, to the Admiralty, to know if any such information had been received there, he was assured by the Secretary of the Admiralty, that it was not well founded; in consequence, the stocks fell nearly to their former price. However, it is still asserted that the report was originally propa- gated in Paris, and brought over by Mr. Pultney. Those who know that there is now from four to five millions of scrip lying in the Bank, which must be re- deemed on or before the 21st instant, are not surprised at the many artful fabrications of favourable advices, which are contrived merely to raise the funds, and to enable the owners of this scrip to sell to advantage be- fore the aweful day of payment. The letter sent over by Mr. Fitzherbert, relative to the relief of Gibraltar, we are assured, was not merely the substance of the French accounts of the matter, but a complete copy of the dispatches which had been received at the Court of Versailles. These dispatches arrived at Paris 011 the 23d of last month, and Mr. Fitzherbert's letter is dated on the 24th. A gentle- man, who has seen that copy at the Secretary of State's Office, says, the circumstances therein related, both as to the relief of the garrison, and the damage sus- tained by the enemy's fleets in the storm, exceed even the most favourable accounts from report. Among other things, it says, that a strong wind and current had carried the combined fleets a considerable way into the Mediterranean, past Lord Howe's station on the Barbary Coast; so that his Lordship has it in his power to fight or not as he pleases, as the same wind which brings the enemy back, will carry him on his way homeward, if he chooses not to give them battle. Those who are surprised at the storm in the Medi- terranean, which is said to have injured the enemy's fleet without injuring our's, are to be informed, that when the wind blows off the land, the water near the land runs smooth, and ships may ride in it with safety. From the description given of the storm off Gibraltar, it is clear to those acquainted with the situation of the place, that the enemy had the lee shore. * As there is no such commander in the French ser- vice as the Marquis de Bouzolles, it may be taken for granted that the letter pretended to be written by him from the camp before Gibraltar, to the Mar- chioness, was penned by a paragraph- writer. The St. Andrew, Capt. Smart, is arrived at Ports- mouth, from Antigua, from whence she sailed on the 26th of September, and it is with pleasure we inform the public, that the report of a hurricane in the West- Indies, is entirely void of foundation. The St. An- drew has brought in with her a valuable French prize, laden with 700 hogsheads of sugar. Extract of a letter from Portsmouth, Nov 1. " This morning sailed on a cruise the Bombay Castle, Capt. Bourmaster, the Pegase, Capt. Berkely, the Medway, Capt. Edgar, the Proselyte frigate, and Griffin cutter. " Commodore Elliot is expected to sail to- morrow morning with his squadron." Yesterday an express arrived at the India- House, with advice, that about seven o'clock of the evening before, the London and Oxford East- India ships, which lay off Greenwich, were driven by the violence of the wind, from their moorings, and about eleven o'clock of the same evening forced on shore near Crawley's Wharf at Greenwich. We are now informed there is no truth in the re- signation of Sir Guy Carleton, nor any foundation for the report that he intimated such a resolution in case his last instructions were not altered. If Lord Cornwallis takes the command in the East- Indies in the room of Sir Eyre Coote, Col. Tarleton certainly goes with him, and many other officers who served under his Lordship in America, when he was Commander in Chief for the Southern district. Sir Thomas Rumbold's business in the House of Commons, it is believed, will be certainly dropped, no further notice being expected to be taken of it. Yesterday the Earl of Northington kissed his Ma- jesty's hand, on being appointed ambassador to the court of Turin, in the room of Lord Mountstuart. The Prince and Princess of Mecklingburgh Schwe- rin arrived in town from Bath. Yesterday an express was received in town, with an account that his Grace the Duke of Portland, the late Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, arrived at Park Gate on Monday last, at three o'clock in the afternoon, in perfect health. The Earl of Surry was yesterday at St. James's and bore the staff as Earl Marshal of England. The backwardness of the harvest in Scotland and in Wales, has caused greater distress in those countries than has been remembered for many years. Mr. Gainsborough has just compleated his painting of the whole Royal Family, at Windsor, sixteen in number, all of which are spoken of as highly- finished characteristic portraits of the illustrious personages who sat to him. They write from Dublin, that the Duke of Leinster has given a rare instance of generosity, attachment to the interests of his country, and hospitality to the oppressed and distressed Genevans, in the offer he made, about a fortnight ago, in a letter to M. D'Iver- nois, the agent appointed by the Genevans to pro- cure them an asylum in Ireland. His Grace's offer was, that he would vest in the emigrants who should settle on his estate the fee simple of a great number of acres of land, without requiring any pecuniary con- sideration whatever for so noble a grant. Extract of a letter from Dublin, 0ct. 25. " A Right Hon. Gentleman, no less remarkable for being the youngest than the wisest of the peers, having lately ( when discharging the many thousands due from his father, which he was not obliged to pay by law) been applied to by a person for the payment of a bond of 150l. his Lordship, upon examination, found it was transferred by the poor man, to whom it was due, for the very inadequate sum of 50I - I will deal with you ( said his Lordship) justly, and ' no more. Here is the fifty pounds you paid for the ' bond, and the legal interest.' Circumstanced as the matter stood, the money could not be refused. Lord M n then sought out the original owner ; and finding him poor, paid him the whole sum, and the interest. Such are the virtues which dignify nobility. They are indeed sweet, and " smell to Heaven." The object and end of the petition from the brewers maltsters, and distillers of the home counties, pre sented to his Majesty, and delivered by Samuel Whit- bread, Esq; is answered, although not in the mode pointed out in the prayer. The Earl of Shelburne had a conference with the gentlemen of the several trades, when he stated three objections to the issuing a proclamation for the free importation of foreign bar ley at the port of London. He acknowledged the. emergency of the crisis, and professed his willingness to interfere, as far as possible, in order to soften the national calamity ; but his objections to the mode pointed out in the petition were :— First, His extreme reluctance 10 extending the prerogative of the Crown. Secondly, His objections to going against an act of Parliament, so lately passed, and which the wisdom 1 of the legislature in so recent a review of the case had j thought necessary. And thirdly, The circumstance of it being now so near the opening of the session, when a regular remedy might he found for the evil. These were his objections; but still the scarcity and dearness of barley was a matter of such alarming ten- dency, he was anxious that they might agree on some middlecourse, as a temporary expedient, until an act could be procured for the purpose. After some con- versation it was settled, that an indemnification should be given by bond to the custom- house for the pay- ment of the high duty of a guinea per quarter on the barley imported, in the confidence that these bonds should be discharged at the meeting of Parliament. Mr. Whitbread said, he would give bond for 10,000 quarters, and trust to the wisdom and generosity of Parliament for his relief. The matter being thus set- tled, we understand that the trade have already sent large orders to their correspondents on the Continent, and they expect in a few weeks a supply from the Bal- tick. A plan is in agitation by Captain Thompson for the relief of the distressed widows of naval officers, by- paying into the hands of certain bankers, appointed for that purpose, the sum of two percent, out of their prize monies, to be funded to the best advantage in government securities, by a committee of three Cap- tains, annually chosen out of the first nine senior Cap- tains on half- pay, who are subscibers. Alderman Peckham, the late Lord Mayor elect, having requested to be excused serving that office, on account of the infirm state of his health, Alderman Newnham is chosen in his Head.

A. and Fellow of the said College, to the rectory of Stan- ton St. Michael's, in this county. " Mr. Seaton's prize is this year adjudged to Spencer Madan, M. A. of Trinity College, for his poem on The Call of the Gentiles Extract of a letter from Coxheath, Oct. 31. " The weather here is now so cold and wet, that within these last three or four days, more men have been taken ill than during the whole of the camp be- fore, and out of the two regiments of horse, more than one half are rendered unfit for service." Orders are sent off from the War- office for the camps on the West coast to break up and march for their winter cantonment; but the camps on the North coast have as yet received no orders. A few days ago a sale of household goods and fur- niture was published to be held at Langley in the county of Essex, being a distress for rent of long stand - ing : the auctioneer and company were assembled, when the former mounted his rostrum, and with great good- humour addressed the company, informing them, that a sale was intended ; but that the landlady, Mrs. Maling, having made minute enquiry, found her tenant's deficiency was not owing to any extrava- gance or neglect, but to unfortunate circumstances ; she had therefore given up her claim to the superior part of the arrears, had lowered his rent that he might be the better enabled to live, was sorry to have called the company together, and requested they would, at her expence, regale themselves before their return. On Tuesday morning last, about three o'clock, the toll- keeper of Hutton- Gate, near Brentwood, in Es- sex, was found with his skull fraftured, and other wise most cruelly mal treated by some villains, who had plundered the house of his money ; he languished in great agonies till Wednesday morning, when he expired. The perpetrators of this horrid act have not yet been discovered. Died, Saturday last, at Twerton, near Bath, Peter Joye, Esq.

Extract of a letter from London, Saturday Evening. " I was in expectation that I should have had some good news for you ; but it is now near seven o'clock, and nothing come. Reports are propagated every hour ; but we give credit to none of them, ' till con- firmed at Lloyd's. " A packet is just arrived from Helveotsluys with- out any letter ; but the Captain brings word that the Dolphin packet, Captain Flyn, sailed from thence last Monday, with the two mails ; but he has not since been heard of: it is therefore feared that he is either lost or taken. From the bad weather we have had, the first conjecture is the most probable." [ As every incident respecting affairs at Gibraltar is at this time interesting, the following letter, which we received last Friday by way ot Lisbon, though of a date previous to the period of General Elliot's last dispatches, may not be unacceptable.] Extract of a letter from an officer at Gibraltar. Dated September 2. " I have had the mortification of being obliged to take three letters to you, written at different times, out of our post- office, as the ships are all laid up, and the seamen landed and formed into a brigade. This goes in a boat to Portugal, which I hope will escape the vigilance of the Spaniards. " On the 15th of August, at night, the enemy continued a parallel, ( which before reached half way across the isthmus) quite to the Eastern shore, and at the same time made a communication from the East t » d of it to their lines. The whole of this work must be above a mile in extent, and was by the morning sufficiently formed to cover men from our shot, with- out our having heard them at work. They continue! employing about 10,000 men every night ( according to the reports of deserters) but we did not know what they were particularly doing, ' till the morning of the 25th, when it was perceived from the heights' that they had made embrazures for 64 guns in the Eastern part of the newly made parallel. They have likewise made some new mortar batteries in the Western part of the parallel. This parallel is from 1oo0 to 1200 yards from us. The 64 gun battery is about 1000 yards from Willis's, and is intended to flank the batteries there. " Eight of the fortified ships, or floating batteries, are finished, the other two nearly so. The larboard sides are fortified with strong timbers and old cables, the decks are covered with a roof consisting of strong beams, resembling the roof of a house. They have two tiers of guns on the larboard side, but none oil the other.— The Duke de Criilon appears determined not to fire ' till every thing is ready, which I think can- not be longer than ten or, twelve days. By land and sea he will have about 400 guns and mortars play- ing upon us. We keep up a fire on the working parties, with some effect." Representation of a FLOATING BATTERY mentioned in the above Letter. Extract of a letter from an officer at Plymouth, dated 0ctober 27. " Lord Shuldham this morning shewed me a letter that he had just received from Lisbon, which says that our fleet was becalmed off the rock of Lisbon on the 7th inst. but that upon the 8th a gale from the Westward sprung up so strong, that it was generally concluded he must have reached Gibraltar on the 10th. — This letter farther mentioned, that the Spaniards were greatly dissressed for cannon to supply more floating batteries ; that the combined fleets, by the last information, were cruising off Cadiz, expecting Lord Howe would attack and bombard that city; great sickness had prevailed ON board the Spanish ships, and at Cadiz they were pressing all hands to supply the numbers that had died, and that the Spaniards were much alarmed left Lord Howe should get intimation of these particulars. " Lord Shuldham's correspondent ' tells him, he had this information from a Portuguese sailor, who had been pressed at Cadiz, but was afterwards dis- charged, not being a Spaniard." Extract of a letter from Cirencester, Oct. 25. " The number of daring robberies committed in every part of this kingdom, ana particularly in this neighbourhood, ought to rouse the vigilance of every magistrate, and the attention and activity of each in- dividual. Sunday last one William Butt, of Bisley, Glocestershire, was apprehended in the parish of Mine- ty, as a vagabond and suspicious perton, and brought before Thomas Bush, Esq; a justice of the peace for the said county, who committed him to the house of correction in Cirencester. On searching the said William Butt, there was found in his pocket a small silver pepper Caster, without any name or particular mark. It is presumed that whoever has lost the same will make proper application, and take such steps as the law has prescribed. The said William Butt was tried at the last assizes held for the county of Glo- cester, for returning from transportation." It is a matter of notoriety, that in the year 1785, the magistrates of Geneva, jealous of the privileges of the General Council, called in the assistance of France to deprive the citizens of their rights. The city was surrounded by an army, to put a stop to its commerce, and prevent the importation of provisions. The citizens endured the distress resulting from - this tyranny for four years, rather than consent that the constitution of their city should be altered, and were at last saved by the friendly interference of the Court of Great Britain. While they were in this cri- tical situation, the famous Rousseau Wrote to Monsieur d'Ivernois, one of their commissioners, the following letter : ' Since you are determined to bury yourselves under « the ruins of your country, do more, dare to live for < its glory, when it shall no longer exist. Yes, gen- ' tlemen, there still remains one part for you to take, • and I dare affirm the only one which is worthy of ' you. It is, instead of staining your hands with the ' blood of your fellow citizens, to abandon to them ' those walls, which should have been the asylum of ' liberty, and will henceforward be a den of tyrants. ' It is to leave them all — all in a body in broad day- ' light, your wives and children in the midst of you — ' and if you must be slaves, be at least the slaves of some great prince, and do not submit to the intole- ' rable yoke of your equals. And do not imagine, ' that if you were to do this, that you would want an • asylum. You do not know what esteem and respect ' your courage, moderation, and prudence, have ' gained you all over Europe. I do not think there is ' one Sovereign, no not one, that would not receive ' with honour, I dare say with recpect, that emigrant ' colony of men, too virtuous not to be as faithful ' subjects as they were faithful citizens.' On Sunday se'nnight, Mr. Thompson, grocer, of this city, was married to Miss Woolley. On Thursday last was married, at St. Michael's, in this city, Mr. Packer, of Stroud, to Miss Sewell, of the same- placc. Early on Thursday morning died, at the Newhouse in this county, after a short illness, in the 79th year of his age, John Purnell, Esq. He was exemplary in every stage of life as a son, a husband, and a father. After a short illness he expired, and crowned a life of piety by a death of peace. Wednesday last died, at Carmarthen, the Rev. Mr. Griffith White Havard; a gentleman universally esteemed. We hear that frequent robberies continue to be committed near Cirencester and Fairford. One of the villains is said to be Peare, who broke out of this gaol some months ago. Those families that reside in the country will do well to take every precaution of arming their servants. — The house of Thomas Brown, Esq; of Sevenhamp- ton, in this county, was attacked a few nights ago. The robbers broke a pane in the window of the room where Mr. and Mrs. Brown slept, and were unscrew- ing the sash, when Mrs. Brown fortunately awoke, and heard them, and the servants being alarmed, the villains thought proper to retreat. John Tasker, who escaped from the gaol of this city fome months ago, has been fortunately appre- hended at Birmingham;, and is now safely lodged in our castle.

SIR, GRATITUDE obliges me to fend you my Case, to do Justice to your Drops About Michaelmas last I was suddenly seized with a violent Pain in one of my Knees, which increased and settled in my Legs and right* Hand, and rendered me so weak and infirm, that I was not able to walk without Crutches, nor lift mv Hand up to my Head for six Weeks. In this miserable Condition, Mr. Miles, - of Netherhaven, not far from where I live, who had been cured of the Rheumatism, of many Years standing, by your Drops, prevailed on me to try them, which 1 accordingly did, and af- r ter taking about five Half Crown Bottles, ( which I sent for to Mess. Collins and Johnson, in Salisbury) 1 recovered the Use of my Limbs, and soon after my usual Health and Strength, and have now the Satisfaction to inform you, that by the Blessing of God, and the Use of your inestimable Drops alone, 1 am as well and able to do Business as ever I was in my Life, which I desire you will publish for the Benefit of utheis. I am your very humble Servant. RICHARD PIPER.

The following MEDICINES are sold- by. R. RAIKES, Southgate- Street, Glocester. ALL- bountiful Nature, amongst the numeroos Blessings she has bestowed on Mankind, has been par- ticularly profuse in the Vegetable System : In that variegated World she has planted Remedies for all or most of the Dis- orders incident to the human Body; and to search out Na- ture in all her secret Workings; to discover the peculiar Pro- perties of separate Plants, or the wonderful Efficacy of a- Number of them in Conjunction, seems to be marked out by Divine Providence as the noblest Employment of a rational Mind. Numerous have been the Discoveries, incessant the Studies, and indefatigable the' Application of the Learned in all Ages, after this truly patriotic Knowledge; and even those whofe Labours have not been crowned with Success, did not in the least doubt but that the Discoveries they were in search of would be brought to Light in future Ages. The great Boerhaave, the learned Sydenham, and many other distin- guished Characters in the medical Line, were fully satisfied within themselves that the Vegetable World afforded a Re- medy which ( when discovered) would render entirely useless that destructive Mineral, Mercury, in the Prescriptions for the Venereal Complaints. Happy for the present Age, this Vegetable Diamond it now brought to its greatest Lustre: VELNO's VEGETABLE SYRUP, as improved by Dr. Burrows, has not a single Particle of Mer- cury in its Composition, but is extracted entirely from Vege- tables, whose Efficacy in destroying the Venereal Virus, ha » been proved beyond the Possibility of a Doubt, This incom- parable Medicine, since its Improvement, has been admi- nistered with the greatest Success in the most confirmed Ve- nereal Complaints, after Salivation and every other Method had been tried in vain. Nor is its great all- searching Quali- ties confined to Venereal Complaints alone j the Scurvy, Scrophula or King's Evil, as well as every Disorder arising, from an impure State of the Blood, yield to the potent In- fluence of this Medicine, as is proved from a Variety of In- stances, even when Sea- Bathing and other general Methods had left the unhappy Patients the gloomy Prospect of being deemed incurable. What renders the Vegetable Syrup superior to all other Medicines is, that it may be given with the greatest Safety to Children, and to Women in every State of Pregnancy ; it is agreeable to the Taste, perfectly mild and innocent in its Ope- ration, and may be administered without the least Inconve- nience or Hindrance of Business. *#* It is particularly recommended to be taken preparatory to Inoculation for the Small- Pox, as also for the Humours affecting the Blood after that Disorder, either by Inoculation or in the natural Way, and also after the Measles. This valuab'e Remedy is sold in Quart Bottles, res. 6d. each, by R. Raikes, Printer, Southgate- Street, Glocester} T. Stevens, Cirencester; S. Harward, Tewkesbury; J.

THIS GRAND ARCANUM is an infallible Cure for the Hooping or Chin- Cough, which is con- firmed by abundant Experience. This Medicine is perfefcly 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 publifh this Specific for general Good. It is a moft excellent Remedy in all Fevers, particularly all ihe Train of inward Fever.- 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 fome 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 Subslance of the Bones and Gristles of Children, and reduces their enlarged Heads and Joints to a natural Size, with little or no sensible Operation.
