eice Number 2648. J SATURDAY, AUGUST 14, 1784. f Ready Money for advertising 1 Sunday and Monday's Posts. LONDON, AUG. 7. From the LONDON GAZETTE. Whitehall, August 7. ^ HE King has been pleased to order a writ of summons to Parliament, under the Great Seal of Great Britain, directed to Gyieral Sir John Griffin Griffin, of Audley End, in the county of Essex, Knight of the Bath, by the name, stile, and title of John Griffin, Lord Howard of walden. HOUSE of COMMONS, Friday, Aug. 6 The secretary at war rose to move what he had formerly promised in regard to the officers who were likely to suffer by the necessary reduction which had taken place in the army establishment. He accordingly moved, that the sum of 15,000!. and upwards, be granted to his Majesty for the purpose of defraying the expence of keeping up the corps under consideration till Christmas next. The motion was seconded by Mr. Pitt, and after some debate passed without a division. A great many other resolutions having passed the Committee, the Speaker resumed the chair, when Mr. Thornton rofe, to make his motion concerning the holders of navy bills He then stated his cb- j eft iocs to the difcount on these bills. Country Gentlemen who did not lay out their money that way, were apt to think the interest on them exor- bitant. The truth was, they generally fell wholly into mercantile hands, who could not part with their money on the usual interest, as they could ren- der it vaftly more productive in fair trade. He informed the houfe, that the navy- bills which had lately produced so much speculation were bills issu- ed from the Treafury to answer a temporary purpose near the conclulion of the last war. Every body ex- pefted that tiiefe bills would certainly have been dif- chargcd immediately on the establishment of peace. Se prevalent was this expectation, that the discount on thefe bills at that time fell nearly twenty per cent. The event, however, proved how much the public had been deceived. He was sure if the Right Hon. Gentleman had the same access of hearing the, dif ferent opinions of individuals that he had, he would yield his judgment for once to the desire of the public. He concluded with moving, that the pe- tition from the holders of Navy Bills, which he had presented, be referred to the Committee of Ways and Means, with a view of procuring other terms than those propofed in the resolution of the said Committee July 30th. Mr. Hussey seconded the motion. The Chancellor of the Exchequer rose, and entered into a complete vindication of the whole scheme, which he had submitted to the consideration of Parliament on this subject. The object of his pro- position was such a discount on Navy- bills, as he thought fair and honourable on the part of Go- vernment. But as the operation of this principle could notbe known till the trial was fully made, it was impossible to say with precision, what effect it might have on the publick credit, till that period arrived. The question that ought to be decided, therefore, was, had we any precedent for such a practice? This, he said, we undoubtedly had. Government had substantially done the same thing with all the debt that had been funded since the revolution. Nor in one instance had public credit- been a sufferer by the practice. What then were the circumstances which induced gentlemen to have less confidence now than they formerly had in the same mode if funding the national debt ? Hewould therefore rest the argument solely on this ground, as i: certainly had not yet been contested. Here he entered with infinite eloquence and address into the nature of pecuniary transactions, and the connecti- on which always and invariably must subsist between the price of stock and the credit of such a commer cial state as this was. He vindicated the principle on which the whole scheme of funding the six milli- ons proceeded, and he challenged especially the in- genuity of the Right Hon. Gentleman ( Mr. Fox,) who fatoppofite to him, to detect the fallacy of his argument, if it contained any, as he candidly ow- ned that if he was wrong it was an error of the un- derstanding, and not of the heart, for he was as anxious to be right as any one could be. The sys- tein he had brought forward was an open and la- borious one : he was not inclined to palliate disea- ses which threatened the vitals of the state. A ra- dical and fubllantial remedy was essential to prefer- mation, not to fpeak of salvation. He was perfectly aware what he had to expect from any thing less than compleat measures : this principle operated with him. He had no indulgence to expect from Gen tlemen in opposition — he asked for none : his Hand- ing or falling was nothing compared with the fate of thecountry, in whose service he was engaged. But the clamour which must have arisen from his going on in the old broad and beaten track of aim ing by no project or exertion ^ whatever at the re-, demption of the public, he foresaw was to be avoid- ed only bv doing his duty in his situation substan- tially, and at every risk of personal ease or hazard of reputation. It was no difficult matter for him to have continued in place with the same indolence or indifference which had marked the conduct of many of his predecessors in office. He had praised the resolution of the Right Hon. Gentleman, Mr. Fox, in daring to bring forward an original measure, which however he condemned and ever would, as a measure hostile to trie constitutional rights of meo, still active and arduous spirit which he difFused i'i the administration of that time was an object which he was proud to imitate. But no measure lie should propose he hoped he should ever be weak enough to defend and urge purely on his own per- sonal conviction, and lea.' t of all any meafure rela- ting solely to public credit, which to him was the most sacred cf all objects, efpecially in the prefent situation of this country. Whatever therefore his own opinion might be, he would not run violently in the face of any considerable body of individuals, though satisfied their Judgment were not fo jult as his own. He was aware how fleeting and precarious the public credit was. He would not therefore urge the discount ; and thofe Gentlemen who were pleased to compliment him on his want of firmnefs or resolution, were welcome for him'to enjoy their triumph. The credit of the nation was much more facred and valuable to him than any thing they could fay in his praise. He was therefore determined to give way in every scheme which tended not to pro- duce the object for which it was deviled, fatisfied in his own mind, that a Minister should be uniform- ly guided, not by the credit of his own meafures, but by the credit of the country. In short, he had laid down for himself this rule, that thofe meafures by which the country is prosperous can never be wrong, and that no measures can be right by which she is not. After fome further debate the motion paffcd the Committee unanimously. On Thursday a message was sent from the Houfe of Commons to the Houfe of Peers, as follows : " That the House of Commons had come to a " resolution, That, from and after the prefent " Session of Parliament, no Member of this Houfe do frank any letter or packet, unless the whole subscription be in his own hand writing, arrd unless together with the name cf fuch Member, the name of the post town from which the faid letter or packet is intended to be sent, and the day of the month and the year shall the fame shall be put into the post- office, shall be at the " same time superscribed upon such letter or pac- " ket, which day of the month ill a 11 be in words "• at length; and that no Member of this Houfe " do permit any letter or packet to be direded to " him at any place except where he lhall aftually " be at the time of delivery thereof, or at his ufaal " place of residence in London, or at the Lobby of " this House." The same having been read, a message was fent to the House of Commons to acquaint them, their Lordships would send an answer by meflengers of their own— the same was accordingly fent to the Commons, and was to the following purport, viz. " The Lords having taken the fubjeft matter cf " the meflage from the Commons ( this Houfe) into " consideration, have come to the'following refo- " lutions : " Rezolved nem. contradicente, bv the Lords Spi- " ritual and Temporal in Parliament affembled, " That, from and alter this present Session of Par- " liament, no Member of this House do frank, & c." ( making use of the very words in the refolutions above- mentioned, dividing it, and making two re- solutions, the first ending " in words at length.)" extract of a letter from Dublin, Aug. I. " The situation of his Grace of Rutland is truly mortifying : scarce a lady attends the levee or draw- ing- room parties, and his Grace seldom leaves the castle, and when he does, it is incog. For though the rioters are suppressed from executing public vi- olence, the spirit still exists, and the lower claffes of the people take every opportunity to infult thofe whom they consider inimical to the resolutions for- med by the Delegates of the Volunteers. " The appearance of the volunteers at the feve- ral reviews that have taken place in the courfe of the summer exceeded all expectation, not only in the strictness of their discipline but their numbers; and be assured of this, that the most cordial friendlhip subsists between them and the King's troops. Extract Of a letter from Dublin, " July 27. " Tuesday last a journeyman silk weaver was taken in New- street by a mob, charged with being an informer: they led him through Malpas's- street, Mill lane, Sweeny's- lane to the Weaver's- square ; where they stript him, and bedaubed him with dirt, ( the tar being all used) they then led him through Brown- street, and so on to the canal, where they put a rope about his neck, and were going to drown him. A report having got amongst them of the approach of the military, they made a precipitate flight, leaving the object of their vengeance behind. " This morning about six o'clock a mob came to the house of Mr. Kelly, shoemaker, in George's- lane, and dragged him out of his bed to a field near the circular road, Ranelagh, where they strip- ped, tarred, and feathered him. Mr. Sheriff Smith came with a guard - and conducted him home. The crime alledged against him by the rioters, was working up English callimancoes in shoes. " This morning early a poor journeyman shoe- maker was dragged from his bed, and led through several of the great avenues in the city to the Tenter fields, where he was tarred and feathered — IJ is crime was being a country colt, and working under the regular price." The following curious hand- bill was stuck up in several parts of the city of Dublin on Saturday ialt ; " This is to certify, that I Daniel O'Flannaghan, am not the person who was tarred and feathered by the Liberty- mob on Tuesday; and I am ready to give twenty guineas to any one that will lett me fifty; that 1 am the other man, who goes by my name. Witness my hand this 30th of [ trly. St Michan''. DAN. O'FLANNAGHAM. We have received an article of information from Paris, highly important to the fashionable world : The Ladies of Quality will weep, and the Members of the Bengal Club will have new subject foi groanig, when they learn that the immortal Ves- i. '-. is — le dieu de deuse,~ h thrown into the chatelet royal, a close prisoner, in a cell where he has not not room to cut a single caper. The reason of this punishment is, that he excused himself from obey ing an order of the Queen of France to perform in a Grand Ballet before the Count de Haga. He pre- tended to be lame ; but being seen walking the next day with Gardel, he was without ceremony committed to prison. The Due de Chatres confesses himself fairly van* quished by the Prince of Wales. The Duke went up in a balloon to an immense heighth, and made the experiment of flying among the clouds— He pre- sented a French picture of the Westminster scrutiny, for after being buffeted — turned over head — twilled — and made the sport of the winds — buried in clouds and out of fight for 3 quarters of an hour, he was forced to come down exactly - where he set out. The Prince of Wales, when he heard of his atchievement, to shew him that we had no occasion for air balloons to outstrip the winds in England, mounted his horfe and rode one hundred and twelve miles in eight hours and an half. Yesterday at the Westminster scrutiny the number of votes declared bad against Sir Cecil Wray were 25, the precise quantity which on the other side were pronounced bad against Mr. Fox.-— So that the par- ties are now, after two months labour, exactly where they set out. Earl Ferrers, as well as Lord Shelburne, and some official people immediately connected with the Minister, are employed on the subject of the walte lands. The learned Dr. Heister, of Gottingen, many years since conjectured that several persons, who died suddenly in the night time, lost their lives from the vapours which exaled from large nosegays placcd in close bed- chambers. The present celebrated Dr. Ingenhouz has just confirmed this doctrine, and requests those who have any doubts upon the point to try an easy experiment ; which is, to shut up a small bunch of flowers under a glass bell in the night, taking care to put a little water on the dilh on which the bell rests, to prevent all communication between the external air and that under the bell. The flowers will be found to have suffered nothing, but they will have corrupted the air in which they have been shut up, in proportion to the volume of the plants compared with the volume of the air on which they have acted ; and also in proportion to the nature of the plants. A candle put into this air will go out; and a common plant shut up, with a volume of air ten times larger than itself, will make it so destructive as to kill an animal in a few feconds. This is a matter which concerns every body, at this feafon particularly; and the article was sent us by a gentleman of the faculty, in order to be inferted as a caution to the public. Letters from France advise, that Sir Sampson Wright is now there, and that in his way to Paris he had a conversation with Mr. England at Calais, in which he recommended his return home, to abide the verdift of a jury, in consequence of the duel with Mr. Rowlls. The object of the Magistrate's journey, it is said here, is to procure an order from the French Court to bring England over; but whether he will succeed ( Clutterbuck's case con- sidered) is matter of speculation, which time only can determine. England, however, has secured himself for the present, by a trip to Spa. Yesterday was examined at the Public- office in Bow- street, before Justice Gilbert, a glass- cutter, who had engaged four glass- blowers to emigrate to France, and paid them iol. each, and hired and paid for a post- chaise six guineas; the business was so near compleating that the horses were put to the coach at an inn near Charing. cross; he was fully committed to Newgate to take his trial. Yesterday about three o'clock Mr. Rainsworth, tallow- chandler, of Clare- market, dropped down dead upon ' change ; Dr. Hawes was sent for, and trials made to restore him to life, but in vain. The coroner's inquest which fat on the body of Mary Clayton, who was shot by William Steven- fon, the watchman, on Sunday last in Clerkenwell bridewell, was composed half of prisoners ! and half of neighbours. On their verdict being brought in wilful murder, Stevenson was conveyed to Newgate to take his trial at the Old Bailey. It is said the unfortunate man narrowly escaped being torn to pieces by the prisoners on his arrival in Newgate. DANCING. MR.

The case is large enough to contain a Lesser Organ of 5 stops, and a Swell j which wire designed to b « added. There is also a barrel to be applied to the Keys occasionally j on which are set three of Stanley's celebrated Voluntaries. The Graces were added, and the Music on the barrel CO: rested by the late Dr. Howard. This Machinery may be applied to the Keys of any other Organ. It cost above 60 Guineas. ' t he other Organ, though larger and indeed completein thfif musical part, is more proper for the Hall of a Gentleman's HOUSE, the front being smaller. It now llaoda in 2, Gallery, in the Hall.

The former of these Organs cost between three and four hundred pounds, the latter between five and six himdrctf pounds, are in good condition ( except fuch tuning, as ii always wanted in four or five years,) and will be fold muclj below their original cost or the price of an Organ of the famer fize ( much worse put together) of a modern builder. N. B. There is also another imperfect Organ, in pnrtoli but there are great quantities of Pipes, Backwells, Trackers, Squares, & c. all new, which'will be dispofed 01 ( in one Lot) CHEAP. The HARPSICHORD Is a double one, and was made by HERMANNUS TABEL in 1728. Tabel was the firlt great improver of Harpsichords here, and was the instructor of Shudi, Wiellen- brock and Kirkman*. This Harpsichord as 1' ahel himfelf affirmed, J was the best he ever made ; and in llrength atrtf sweetness of tone far exceeds any modern one, not excepting Kirknians f. It has ( as usual) two Unisons, Odl . ve, and Lute; but by a contrivance executed under Mr. Fortrey's direction, the Fore Unison and Lute can be taken by either Row of Keys separately ; by which means the Lute and Octave can be heard together on one fet of Keys, and the Lute on the other; — with a great variety ef other agreeable mixtures of stops, not to be had on any common double Harpsichord. It coft 70 Guineas, and is in perfeft good preserva- tioc. Both Organs and Harpsichord are now in Mr. Fortrey's House at GALBY in Leicestershire, and will be shewn there by Mr. S. Long. The imperfeQ Organ is at NORTON near Galby, * HERMAN TABEL ( a German) flourished from about the year 1715 to 1730. Kirkman married his widow, | Mr. FORTREY corresponded with Tabel some years, feveral of Tabel's letters are now extant, F KIRKMAN, ( to save trouble) has departed from Tabel'S method in some particulars which afFect the tone, a- nd none of Kirkman's Harpsichords equal Tabel's in tiiis particular. But Kirkman knows that if he does but make a light touch, so that MISS may shew a rapid finger; none will he very critical about tone.

Mr. Coke moved for leave to bring in a bill to re- move all doubts as to persons not born in America, 1 ut being settled on that continent before the year 1770, and having adhered to their loyalty to his majesty, being entitled to the protection of the Bri- tish government. The Attorney General objected to the title ex- pressing doubts of which the existence had not been stated by the Hon. Member, and was of opinion, that unless the persons meant to be relieved were specified, the bill would have too large an extent, and be in fact an act of general naturalized Jn. Mr, Coke said, that he could not ascertain the number, though it would not be great, of perfons to be affected by the proposed bill, which was meant only to include the loyalists resident in America be- fore the year 1770, and consequently it would have no reference to the soldiery who went thither on ac- count of the war. Mr. Eden thought the subject too important to receive the careful discussion it required in the pre- ietu session. Mr. Coke wished the bill to be received and printed, but if contrary to the desires of gentlemen, he would not press for its passing this session, It was to put thode who had abandoned their own country for the British dominions, and had deferved well of government, upon the footing of Englifh- born subjeCts, which was no more than vi aft of justice for their fidelity. Mr. Dundas recommended the Hon. Member to withdraw his motion, observing, that the regular Mode of proceeding would be, to move for a com- mittee to enquire into' the state and situation of the people intended to be relieved. The motion was withdrawn. Mr. Rose moved for leave to bring in a bill to prevent frauds upon the revenue in the articles of soap and starch, by confining tne manufacture thereof to market towns, and a circle of one mile distance, except within ten miles of London. Mr. dempster ard Joliffe meant by no means to oppose a measure for preventing frauds upon the revenue ; but they thought the proposition brought forward too Lite in the session, to frame the bill with such care as would be necessary to protect in- dividuals from injury. The Chancellor of the exchequer said such provi- fions would be made in the Committee, and wilhed the bill to pass this session, as it would save Govern- ment from 50 to 100, oool Leave was given to bring in the bill. Upon the question being put for the third reading the horse tax bill, Lord Fielding moved to add a clause by way of rider for some exemption with regard to the breed of strong horse's,- which his Lordship said had de o'ined since the improvement of the public roads. In Prussia and Sardinia great care was taken to preferve the breed of horses fit for war, and he thought the example ought to be adopted by this c. 11. ' try. The Speaker informed his Lordship, that, to have been added to the hill, the clause must have orginated in the Committee. their time and strength in the redress of Imaginary j grievances; in full possession of liberty, they court its shadow ; and at the very moment they are throwing off every, even the most necessary, re- straint of Government, they are selling themselves by thousands, to abjedl slavery in America. Last week the taring and feathering committee ( as they style themselves) in Dublin, anointed with tar an English built carriage, belonging to a noble- man. It was with difficulty they were restrained from setting fire to it. A man of the name of D'Arcy was dragged from his family, by the mob, and has not since been heard of.— These desperate wretches were feen amusing themselves about the canal, and it is conjectured that the unfortunate man had been the subject of their inhuman sport. Dean Swift's opinion respecting the Irish is very fenfible and judicious; and, by what we can learn, our present ministry have taken a resolution upon the same ground " to leave them to the conse- " quences of their own conduct." They are a. wild people, full of blood, and fond of projects, with- out duly considering their own circumstances and situation. They want to become at once great manufacturers, and great merchants, without waiting for a natural gradation. They would fain storm with the musket and bayonet those strong- holds of 00m- merce established- credit, extensive- correspondence, firm- capitals, and regular- payment; but expedience will teach them, that these fortresses are to be carried only by the flow and regular approaches of habits of frugality, industry, sobriety, and good morals. Their volunteering has led them all from their daily business, and must have impoverished them much- A gentleman in the provision trade, who was over in the fouth of Ireland some little time ago, calling at an inn for his landlord, to exposlulate about the badness of the wine, was told, that he was so busy in preparing his musket and uniform for a review the next day, that he could not possibly wait upon him. Going the next day to call upon his correspondent, a Mr. T , of , who supplied him with beef and pork, he learnt that Col. T. was marched at the head of his corps upon a volunteering expedition, and the cooper too was engaged in the same line; he must call, therefore, another day to talk about provisions. It requires no deep foresight to pronounce what must be the effect of this soldiering spirit in a country whose prosperity is to be promoted by industry and trade. Several considerable failures have happened lately in Dublin, and more will soon follow ; and we hear of the failure of a banking- house in , Messrs. , B , and Co. a house, which, in order to make parliamentary interest, has bought up estates to the rental of 72; oool. a year, a step that has brought them to their present situation. The in- dividuals, who were partners in this house, were very rich, yet by this ambitious enterprising spirit thoy are come to disgrace; and now pretend that it is the miserable state of their country, and the scarcity of cash which brings on this catastrophe. Dublin, Aug. 5. Laft Monday night between the hours of eleven and twelve, a number of officers in the army, most of them aides- du camp to his Grace the Duke of Rutland, flushed it is thought with wine, entered the shop of Mr. Flattery, a publican, of Ormond- Quay, near Essex- Bridge, after assaulting a waiter that stood at the door, under the pretence of calling for liquor; here they had not been long before two of them behaved with the utmost rudeness and indecency to Mrs. Flattery, notwithstanding her earnest entreaties to them to desist ; she was at last overheard by her husband, but on his appearance one of those gentry, on ob- serving a military stock upon him, cryed—" What, you are a volunteer, a'nt you ?" and tweaked him by the nofe : Flattery had too much Irish blood to bear with this indignity, in addition to the assault- ing his wife, and, therefore, knocked the person down ; the whole corps immediately atracked him with their swords, and obliged him to retire for a moment, when he returned with a musquet in his hands, happily without a bayonet, wiih which, and the assistance of two young men who were in the house, he foon cleared his shop of the rioters ; however, they soon returned to the charge, and endeavoured once more to force an entrance, but were valiantly with stood, though one of them ac- tually fired a pistol loaded with bullets into the shop ; fortunately no person was hurt by it. The officers now demanded a parley, and pretending a contri- tion for what had happened, insidiously closed in upon Flattery, seized his firelock, and flung it over the parapet- wall into the liffey ; hereupon the fight was renewed, but a Volunteer, armed with a bayonet, ranged himself on the side of his fellow- citizen ; this, turning the scale, the offenders thought proper to make a precipitate retreat, but ' ere they got clear of the mob, whom this affray had aflembled, and who now joined the vistors, they were saluted with a volley of stones, by which fome of them received such severe contusions as disabled them from following their flying comrades. One of them endeavoured to command respect from the populace, by calling out, that he was a peer of Great Britain, The officers who escaped, firstl hastened to call the city- guards, drafting from thence, particularly at the national bank, all but the sentinels on duty, and returned with large bo- dies of the soldiery, denouncing vengeance. She- riff Smith, hearing of this dangerous riot, repaired to the main- guard, but even there could only get five men to support the civil power, and keep the peace of the city. His presence, however, put an end to the disturbances of the night ; and the next morning Flattery swore an assault against the rio- ters. selves, an ^ expedite the fjiffcir, provided the High- BailifF would indulge them with an adjourn- ment for on 5 week, previous to entering upon the parish of St. martin : he therefore moved the court accordingly. The High Bailiff' said* " Dispofed as I am to oblige, yet I am sorry I do not see.- 1 could be justified," The Counsel enforcing their arguments, the High- Bailiff appealed to Mr. Hsr- grave, who observed, that the arguments were for- cible, that the court was pressed by very cogient reafons, and that he was much inclined to believe that the adjournment, would eventually fhorteiv the business ; yet it was. utterly out of his power to^ an- ticipate the opinion of the house. That it lay-. cn- tirely with the High bailiff's discretion, which he had no doubt but the house would interpret itr. a - Ii<- beral manner. It was at last agreed that a written request should be made and entered upon the Books, which being done, the- high- Bailiff made the ad- journment, and pronounced the dissolution of " the scrutiny in St. Ann's parish. Sir Cecil Wray objected to seventy- one of; Mr.- Fox's voters, of which, only twenty five were decla- red bad, and forty- six good. mr. Fox made- his objections to thirty two of Sir Cecil's, of which twenty- six were declared bad, five good, smLone- postponed. Majority i » favour of Mr. Fox in- St. Ann's parish one. — Adjourned till this day se'nnight. Yesterday the East Indina bill passed the hotife of Lords without any further question. The lioufe was very crouded, in expectation of Lord Lough- borough's coming down ;. but the assizes prevented him from arriving in time. We are informed, thas Thursday se'nnight the igth inst. is the day fixed1 for the Parliament to rife, and that his Majesty will go that day to the Houfe of Peers, and put an end: jo the Session. During the recess some new arrangements will be made in the house of commons, by which Commodore Johnstone well come into parliament, and Mr. Partridge the chief justice of Ely ; the latter through the interest of the attorney- general, of whom he is the particular friend. The reform in the conduct of the post- office is likely to be attended with very considerable advan- tages to the country. Trial of its merits commenced on the Bristol road on Monday the 2d instant, and letters from thence, as well as the conversation upon the Royal Exchange, speak in high terms of its success. Besides the security with which bills, & c. may now be sent per post ( as this conveyance is attended by a guard every inch of the road at the expence of government): its increased speed is productive of innumerable advantages. From the London post- ofiice to that of Bristol is 125 miles; the mail used to be on tl> s road till the third day after its departure, whereas now the dispatches of one afternoon are delivered at the above distancethe next morning, and sufficient time allowed for the- correfpondent to prepare am anfwer previous to the return of the mail the same afternoon. Independent of the increase which this plan will bring to the revenue, there is every reason to believe that its very beneficial operations will induce government to render it general all over the country as speedily as possible. We are very sorry to inform our readers, that a capital house in the Welt India trade is said to have failed for a very considerable sum. The Royal yacht at Portsmouth is getting ready for the Prince of Wales, who is expected to be there in a few days ; and after viewing the dock- yard, fortifications, Spithead, & c. his Highness intends going to Southampton by water, where, if the air and bathing agree with him, he intends to take up his residence for feme time, and to be to and fro' at Lydhurst, which is only nine miles on the new forest, and one of the finest roads in the kingdom. Friday night one of the porters belonging to the Temple, John Gramont, invited a woman with whom he formerly cohabited, but who had de- serted him about five weeks since, to drink with him at a public- house in Wine- office- court, Feet- street, where starting up in a fit of phrenzy, he cut the woman's throat; but she was last night alive, though her recovery is not expected. Gramont is committed to Clerkenwell Bridewell. He was formerly a grocer in the city, but after failing in business became one of the porters of the Temple, for integrity in the discharge of which office he gave 200I. security. Before the transaction he had made several attempts to destroy himself at Mr. Bosher's, the Rainbow, opposite the end of Chancery- lane, in Fleet- street, and other public- houses in the neighbourhood. A few nights ago the house general Sherrard, of Piccadilly, was broke open, and robbed of plate, select valuable miniature pictures, & c. to a large a- mount. Thursday evening John Edwards was committed to Bridewell, by William Blackborough, Esq; on a charge of stabbing his own father in the breast, in Sharpe's Alley, Cow Cross. The elder Ed- wards is in St. Bartholomew's hospital, where, af- ter his wound had been dressed some hours, he was seized with a violent inward bleeding ( yesterday morning at two o'clock) and his life is in very great danger.

The present conduct of the Irish nation seems entirely unwarrantable. 1 he instant they get a freee made the plough stands still — the shuttle is silent : nothing i? to be seen but the evolutions of war, 11 iiuug to be heard but the din of arms, iin. i the voice of clamour against Great- Britain. WESTMINSTER SCRUTINY. At eleven o'clock on Saturday, the parties being assembled, Mr. Philips, Mr. Morgan, and Mr. Garrow ( who is returned from the circuit) sudden • ly retired into the church, where they staid up- ward.- of half an hour. upon their return, Mr. Phillips, addressing himself to the High Bailiff", said, they had agreed to give up the remaining ob- jections, several of which he was confident of carry- ing, to save trouble to the votcrs, expence to them- BANKRUPTS.

Posts.- Paris, Aug, 3- Spanish courier arrived yesterday evening" at the. hotel of the Ambassador of that na- tion, in seven days from Madrid, where the important intelligence is arrived off- the compleat destruction of the city- of Algiers; which was set on fire in six or seven- different pla- ces on the 16th. of last monih, and all the public buildings burnt to'the ground. The Commander of the Maltese squadron1 has' gained great honour by this action, as he hadcaU- most the sole disposal of the bomb ' and gun boats>,- whose incessant discharge of artillery put the Moors-, in such a panic, that the majority- deserted. thec town as soon as the flames broke out. A prodigious number of people are slain ;-. among; the above are said to be the Rechah, or Prime Mi- nister of the Dey, the Pacha of the fleet, and seve-- ral other officers. The jews all went into the back: country, with their treasures, before the Spanish fleet arrived, expecting what the fate of the place would be against so large a place, where they re- - main in huts. Don Barcelo, the commander of' the Spanish squadron, remained still before- the town in the bay,., to compleat the total destruction of the city, that if possible no vessel might remain to cause any trouble in future to any of- the European powers.. The Spaniards sunk 4 of the enemy's'- gun boats;. The principal loss sustained by the assailants wasi from the bursting of one of the Spanish bombt,' by/ which two officers and six men were killed ; and ai gun boat, the crew of which were Neapolitan?,.,, blew up somr hours after . the, adjon.

Very disagreeable accounts, we are allured, have been lately received from North America, refpeil- ine the conduct of a great officer there, upon whom it is said there are claims to the amount of 30,000'. By the last American papers we learn, that the people of that countryare in the most distressed si- tuation : A government without authority sub- jects without obedience ; many lives have actually been lost in a fort of civil war between the back set- tlers from Pensylvania and those from Connecticut; the Pensylvanians have indeed been vigorious, and driven out their enemies; but the most knowing people of that province fear a bloody retaliati- on. gen. Even. Post. No less than 2000 families have emigrated from the Thirteen United Provinces, and taken re- fuge in the new state of Veimont, the people of which are now at open war with the state of New- York : But notwithllanding every effort of Congress they find it impossible to keep their subjects at home, such is the grievous oppression of their taxes, and the weakness of government. Ditto. Although the world in general has imputed the - celebrated coalition to motives which do no great credit to the moral character of the parties, and however well these suspicions may be grounded, one good effect has followed, for which we may thank that fate which brings good out of evil, we mean the deftruflion of that party spirit which commenced with Lord Bute's administration, and has been fomented with great acrimony on both sides during the American war. It had for its object private emolument, and when neither party could provide far that, - they united their interests. The names Whig and Tory are now no longer known to bear any meaning. Those who formerly professed themselves Whigs, and to whom credit was given sfor their professions, have deceived the public, and • are now despised. Those who professed Toryism have shewn an equal contempt for the real welfare of the nation ; and the - nacies now, if ihey mean any thing, signify out . and in.— A Whig when out, and a Tory when in place.

On Saturday last ended the assizes lor Coventry, and county, held before the right hon. Sir John Skynner, Knight, and the Hon. Sir William Henry Ashhurst, Knight, when Thomas Forster,. for fraudulently obtaining four sacks of clover- feed front Mr. Thomas Soden, at the King's- head in Coventry, was fentenced to be transported to America for seven- years. John Quin, for stealing sundry articles in a hovel at Stoneley, to be pubiiekly whipt next market^ day. And Ann Bradley, for stealing from a stall belonging to Ezekiel Nathan, a Jew, one silver salt, was sentenced to hard labour for six months. Thomas Bissell and Richard Hawkins, charged with negociating a bill of exchange, value five pounds five shillings, thereby defrauding Mr. Liddall, of this city, mercer, and 011 a strong fufpicion, as well as their own confession, with forging the said bill, were ordered to remain till the next assizes. Thomas Taylor, charged with Healing fix pieces of linen cloth and other things, was ordered to be removed by Habeas Corpus to Northampton. At the same assizes were trietl three causes upon Quo Warranto informations against perfons for being clandestinely admitted to and illegally exercising the right of a freeman of the city of Coventry, and verdicts were found for the prosecution in all the several causes. The first cause tried was against one Whitehead, and notwithstanding it was irresistably proved, to the satisfaction of a crouded court, that he had served only six years, when he was dismissed from the service of his master for an offence, for which he ought to have answered with his life, yet part of the jury was so regardless of the oath they had taken, that they ( for 23 hour) persisted in prostituting it for the purpose of faction and venality, but the integrity of the other part of the jury at that period obtaining the ascendancy, a verdict was found for the crown at seven o'clock on Sunday morning. To discover the motives which influenced the authors of this suit, it needed only be remarked, that the unfortunate viflim of this revenge was admitted to his freedom at the request of the party to which they belong, and who then asserted and defended his right to the claim. But the poor man chusing at the late election, with many other thinking men, to renounce any longer connexion with those persons, who had so recently supported a daring faction against the King and constitution. and give his suffrage for Sir Sampson Gideon and Mr. Wilmot, whose conduct he conceived to be worthy his support, he among the rest became the object of their cruelty. birm. Chr. Monday a terrible battle was fought in the Friars near this town, between Fancot, a frame- smith, of this place, and Ward, a stocking- maker of Shilton ; it lasted two hours and twenty minutes hard fighting , the bet was for a guinea, and severely contelled. The Shilton champion was blind for zo minutes before he gave out, which he was at length obliged to do by the interference of the company, who generously collected the battle- money for Fan- cot, who had evidently the superiority in boxing. On Monday evening an accident happened at Quarndon, in this county : a quarrel arising ' Be- tween two young men, W. Stubs and Thomas Cooper, blows ensued, when the former give his antagonill an unfortunate blow on the stomach which occasioned his immediate death. On Wednesday lall William Stubbs of Quorndon, carpenter, was committed to the goal of this county by William Tilly, Gent. Coroner, charged by the inquest taken before him, with manslaughtir in felonionsly killing Thomas Cooper, in a battle which Stubbs fought with Cooper at Quorndon on Monday last. On Monday last a bull that was baited at Bilston wake, having broke loose from the stake, attacked a woman, who was one of the spectators, and go- red her with his horns in so terrible a manner, that she died in a very short time. On Friday last the Coroner's inquest sat on the body of Ann Burket, a poor woman of Redmile near Belvoir, who in a fit of despair cut her throat 011 Thursday last, and '. he jury gave in a verdkl, lunacy. Oil Saturday last James Oatty, a boy of Ibstock, was riding in a cart, in a narrow lane near Ibstock, he was met by another cart loaded with gravel, which ran against and overturned the cart the boy rode in, and it falling upon him killed him 011 the spot. The Coroner's inquest sat on the body, and the jury gave in a verdict, accidental death. The same day as Joseph Beck, a young man of Enderby, was bathing in a brook in that liberty, he ventured out of his depth, and was unfortunately drowned before any assistance could be given him. The Coroner's inquest sat on the body, and gave in a verdict, accidental death. And the same day John Sutton, a boy about nine years old, unfortunately fell from the bridge at Quorndon into the brook and was drowned. The Coroner's inquest sat on the body and gave in a verdict, accidental death. A correspondent informs us, that on Thursday last died at Matlock in Derbyshire, Ann Clowes, widow, aged 103. She measured feet, 9 inches in height, and weighed about 48II1. The house she resided in was as diminitive ( in proportion) as herself, containing only one room, about 8 feet square. On Saturday last, was apprehended at Litchfield, William Taft, charged with breaking into the house of Roger Ruding, Esq; of Derby, in the night of the izth of November lall, and Healing thereout two silver table spoons and fundry other articles. — He had with him when apprehended, a chesnut mare; and was riding through that city without saddle or bridle. He was the fame evening brought to Derby in a post chaife properly guarded; and on Monday morning underwent an examination at the Town- Hall, before the worlhip- ful the Mayor, and other magistratcs, when the evidence appearing clear against him, he was com- mitted to gaol, in order to take his trial for the burglary and felony at the next assizes for Derby.--- Immediately on the mittimus being signed, a man came into the hall who was in pursuit of the prison- cr from Lincolnshire, on account of his having on Wednesday se'night, stolen a chesnut mare from ? person at Spalding, with whom he had worked as 2 labourer, and where he went under the name of Wm. Smith, and which proves to be the same mare he had when taken at Litchfield.— He had affo slolen a saddle and bridle from a gentleman's liable near Spalding, which he confessed, and also where he had sold them. Friday night last, or early on Saturday morning, , some person or persons broke into the house of Lady Santry, in St. Mary's Gate, Nottingham ; the villains got into the butler's pantry the back way from Stoney- street. We learn they have taken no- thing of value, except some new linnen belonging to her ladyship. On Wednesday was committed to the goal of this borough Stevenson, charged with feloniously stealing a silver watch, the property of Mr. Banner framesmith. This To be had ot the Author; of J.
