The NORFOLK O R, N O R W I C H VOL. XV.] Ready Money muji be fent with Advert ifements.- CHRONICLE: T H E G A Z E T T E, S A T U R D A Y , oaober 23, 1784. [ No. 803.] Sunday and Mondays Pofl. LONDON, Saturday, October 16. From the LONDON G A Z E T T E. At the Court at St. James's, the 15th of October, 17S4, prefent the K I N G ' S Molt Excellent Majefty in Council. H I S Majefty in Council was this day pleafed to order, That the Parliament, which ( lands prorogued to Tuefday the twenty-' fixth of this inftant Oftobtr, ( hould be further proragued to Thurfday the fecond day of December next. Feterfbiirgh, Sept. IT. On Thurfday laft the Emprefs. returned to this capital from Czarfco- Zelo for the winter feafon : Her Imperial Majefty is in perfect health.— Ga%. - . F O R E I G N A F F A I R S . HMue, Of1. 10. The laft difpatches f r om Vienna. mentioned, that his Imperial Majefty was unalterably determined upon the opening of the Scheldt. Another courier arrived on Monday from Bruffels, at the Imperial Ambaffador's, with difpatches upon the above important f u b j e f t ; immediately after the pefnfual of thefe difpatches, that Minifter gave notite t o the Prefident of the States General, that about the 7th or 8th of this month a veffel would fail from Antwerp, down the Scheldt, into the fea, and that his Imperial Majefty ( hould look upon any obftacle to t h e free paffage of the faid veffel as a declaration of war. A courier alfo arrived from Paris with difpatches for the French AmbafTador, in which we hear the French Court ftill recommend moderation t o theRepublic, and advife them to give way to the circumftances of the times, to avoid a war, and wait for a favourable opportunity to invalidate their r j g l u s . Upon this their High Mightinefl'es difpatclied a courier to Bruffels, with their refokition, taken in confequence. of the above advice of the French Court, and freffi inftruftions were fent to Vice Admiral Reynft, Commander of the Dutch fleet at the mouth of the Scheldt. It is reported that thefe orders were to let the veffel in queftion pafs under a proteft, but this is not credited here. Wliilft thefe tranfaftions were carrying on here the brig Louifa, Capt. Van Ifeghem abfblutely foiled c n the ( 5th from Atwerp, loaded with 70 calks of geneva, and deltined to Dunkirk ; two Commifliiries who had waited for this veffel at St. Philip were there taken on board. When fttrnilhed with an Imperial • order for that purpofe ( he attempted to fail down the Scheldt. M. tie Volbergenj who commands the fcips of war ftati6ried in the river, gave notice to the Auftrian Captain in the moft friendly manner, that he ( hould be obliged to ftop his failing down that r i v e r ; to which he ahfwered, that " the Emperor t a d declared t h e Scheldt apen, and had ordered him t o pafs down it without troubling himfelf with any ® ne." The Dutch commander, after renewirig his friendly inftances to no purpofe, fired a g u n a-; head • without ( hot, but the Auftrian Captain- ftill purfued his way j a ball . was then fired, from the Dutch ( hip, but'without effeft, when upon the repeated refufal of ' the Auftrian Captain to ( top, the Dutch ( hip fired her whole broadfide, when the Auftrian immediately ftruck. This trapfaftion took place two hours before the new inftruftions from their High Mightiueffes, to Admiral Rynft arrived. We are a ( lured that the Captain of the Aultrian veffel had the offer made him of returning to Antwerp, but he re'fufed it with out orders from his Court. Upon thefe important tidings arriving at the Hague, the High Council of the nation immediately afi'embled, and their deliberations lafted till three o'clock in the morning; the Prince Stadtholder attended till half paft two, and, we are affured, pro pofed to augment the troops 14,000 men. Couriers have been difpatched to Vienna, Brutfels and Paris, and Meffengers to all the frontier towns. Hague, 0( 1. 13. Our accounts from Bru( Tels, dated the 7th, mention,' that 90 artillerymen are fet out for Antwerp, towards which place two battallions inarched on the 9th; Go pieces of cannon are expefted to arrive in that city, and the troops at Bergen and other places have all received orders to be in readme fs to march. arrangement wilt be completely fettled. To the Court Qf Direftors he writes, on the 41 ft of February • laft, " I have lately received' more than one fevere warning to retire from a fcene to which my bodily ltrength is no longer equal." From the. foregoing ftatement it is natural t o conclude, that Mr. Haftings will quit Bengal in two or thfree months from tins date ; but then on the other hand, it is to be obferved, that the Court of Direftors wrote to the Governor- General and Council on the 16th of March laft, expreffmg their fatisfaftic 1 at What the Supreme Council had done, and confidence in their future exertions. The Court of Proprietors alio " laft' year p- afted a vote of thanks to Mr. Haftings and his Council, and a requeft that M r . Haftings would not refign till peace was fully reftored, and the ceconomical retrenchments has taken place. All thefe advices, as well as an accountof the change of the Miniftry, mult have arrived in Bengal in the courfe of the laft month, and it is probable will induce Mr. Haftings to remain for one year longer in the Government of Bengal, but no man has an idea that he will ltay beyond that period ; and the ftate of his health ( nay oblige him to quit Bengal in December next, however contrary to his inclination: Under thefe circumftan. ces, it was natural for the Gentlemen" ir. t h e D i r e f t i o n to confider of a fueceffor for Bengal, and the iot- h of December is fixed for the appointment. Some of the Direftors have propofed Mr. Wheeler, the fenior Councellor on the f p o t ; others favour Mr. George Vanfittart, the prefent Member for Berks ; and others again are . for M r . Ralph Leicefter, The two latter Gentlemen were bred in the Company's fervice in Bengal, which Mr.. Leicefter quitted in 1766, and Mr. Vanfittart in 1776; both have been Members of the Adminiltration in Bengal. Thus the affair now refts. His Grace the Duke of Portland had an audience of his Majefty laft week at Wiudfor, whither it is faid he went in confequence of a rneffage from the King ; but what was the fubjeft of the interview has not. yet publickly tranfpired, though it is ( trongly fufpefted to be upon the fubjeft of Irlih affairs. A queftion has arifen among the Crown Lawyers that gives the Miniftry fome uneafinefs, as there is a difference of opinion, front which neither fide are likely to recede. T- fce point in dil'pute is, whether, as the F. att India Company is now circumftanced, in confequence of the Minilter's regulating bill, an appointment to any of the Governments in India will not vacate a feat in Parliament ? From the Crown's having fo much power in the nomination, this difficulty has been ftarted we underftand petulantly, at firft, but has fince become the fubjeft of l'erious conlideration. The King's Commiffioners under the India bill, have appointed Mr. B— 1— y, a merchant in the city, to be their Chief Clerk, with a ( alary of 300I. a year. Mr. Cowden is appointed by the Earl of Waldegrave to fucceed his father, deceafed, as Clerk of the Queen's ( tables. We Yefterday there was a levee at St. James's; after which'a Privy Council was held; when that was oyer, the Secretaries of State and others of the Miniftry had conferences with his Majefty till paft four, when he went to Windfor. The fame day the Earl of Mansfield was at. Court, greatly recovered from his late iridifpofition, and had an audiencfe of his Majefty. His'Majefty has had a dangerous fall from his horfe in hunting;— but we have the happinefs to infoim the public, that he received but a ( light contufion on the brow. There was a very warm debate in. the Court of Direftors on the queftion of the appointment of John Hollond, Efq; tofucceed Lord Macartney in Madras, and a proteft is entered againft him, which is figned by three Direftors. Mr. Hollond is taken up, as it may be/ uppofed, by the party of MF. Haftings, iandhe has always, fupported his Tyftem. He has been' • intimately connefted with the Nabob of Arcot, to which he lent thirty thoufand pounds, which he had abandoned as a defperate debt. It is therefore contended againft the appointment' of this gentleman, that it tends direftly to perpetuate the prefent fyftem. Attached from iritereft to the Nabob, he is likely to ( inter into his oppreffive plans againft the Rajah, and invigorate thole animofities by which the plans of Hindoftan have been fo difturbed. We truft we jhall be able to lay before our readers a copy of the proteft. As various contradiftory accounts have lately- appeared relative to the appointment of a fuccefi'or to Mr. Haftings, we are delired to lay before t h e public the following authentic relation of f a f t s -.— In March; 1783, Mr. Haftings wrote a public letter to the Court of Direftors, earneftly requefting them to nominate afuccefforto him, and declaring his firm intention of quitting India as foon as peace and tranquillity Ihould be completely reftored, This letter arrived in London in September, 1783, but no fucceffor was appointed ; the late Miniftry having determined to take the entire goyernment of India into their own hands. Mr. Haftings was in hourly expeftation of the arrival of his fucceffor when the laft ( hip that has arrived left Bengal, In his private letters to his friends, he writes, that no confideration upon earth ( hall induce him to remain in Bengal longer than January* > 785, by w f o h tiatf be & y » thai every economical e hear that the new intended Debtors Bill will be brought in early in the i'eflion. . T h e forming of this aft. took up much time laft Winter, but it was impolTible to finifh it. Hence the. reafon of the bill brought in by Lord D e n y not taking place. The new bill is framed in fuch a manner as to punifh fwindling with death, in a very fummary way. It makes contrafting debts to a certain amount, without the vifible . ana clear means of payment, felony and death. Drawing, mdorfing, accepting, and paffing notes of hand, and bills of exchange, without va'ue given by each " party, bona fide, comes under this defcription. It is confidently afferted that a bill will be brought into Parliament next feffions. for making perjury in certain cales, and the receiving of ( tolen goods, knowing them to be ftolen, capital offences. To reduce the number of receivers of ftolen goods, would be the moft effeftual method of diicouraging robberies of all denominations. According both to the principles of humanity and found policy, tlie prevention of crimes is always to be preferred to the punifhinent of offenders. Plans are preparing in the Drawing- room in the Tower for fortifying our Welt- India iflands, particularly St. Vincent's and Grenada. The Mailer General of the Ordnance has not as yet appointed any engineer officerJfor this fervice; but it is uuderftood that Col. Gordon, who hasaconliderable eftate in the ifland of Grenada, will be fent out as the Engineer. Had this officer's advite been attended to by the inhabitants, the ifland would not have fallen into the hands of the French laltwar; he advifed a fubfeription f o r e r e f t i ng a fort that ( hould be able to make lome ( tand againft an enemy, Had the Colonel fucceeded, the French Admiral muft have abandoned his attack,, as Admiral. B y r o u V f l e t t appeared hi- a few hours after the enemy had landed, and without any refiftance got poffeffion. His Grace the Duke ot R; chmond has almoft entirely demoliihed Fort Monckton on the Gofport ( liore, which had been conftrufted by Col. Archer. The Colonel's plan was not approved of ® % y the Duke, who has himfelf made a drawing which is now carrying into execution under the direction of Major Moncrieff. The expence of the new fortifications intended to be carried on by the Board of Ordinance, will l'well the eltimates of the expence to be voted next- feffions to a fum littje lhort of a war eftabliiKment, which is to be faved to the public by leffening the expence of the fleet, provided Parliament can be brought to adopt the ideas of the prefent Mafter General. Yefterday goods to the amount of two hundred thotifand pounds were entered at the Cuftom- houi'e, for Virginia and Maryland. The following is handed about as part of the plan now under contemplation of government, for converting the walte Crown lands to purpofes of national u t i l i t y T h e lands are to be divided into lots or parcels, a number of which are to be fold or leafed out every year, by commiflioners, to be appointed for that purpoie ; but the annual alienation is not . to exceed a limited meafurement of ground, left the too fudden creation of new farmers mould decreafe the value of the lands already in a ftate of cultivation; the purchafers and renters are to be exempted from the land- fax for a certain number of years after the ground is broken up ; and divers other privileges are to be granted for encouraging the cultivation thereof. The lateft letters from New York, by t h e Tankerville packet, are dated the 26th of Auguft; they univerfally agree that the goods daft imported continue 011 hand, trade being very - dead, - though the peace and tranquility of the city- and province are pretty well eftablilhsd again. The New Yorkers, however, carry on a great traffic for provifions to the Weft India iflands, where their cargoes neceflarily dome to very good markets., Sir Jofhua Reynolds has lately got into his pofleffion the famous miniature pifture of Milton, . painted by Cowper. It njolt Sir Joihua an hundred pounds. On the 17th of laft month died, in an advanced age, at Naples ( where he had refided many years), John Earl Tylney, of the kingdom of Ireland. He was the grandfon of Sir Jofiah Child, Bart, and Ton of Ricrwrd Earl Tylney, who was on the 17th of April, 1718, created Vifcount Caftiemain, and on the 11th of January, 1731, Earl Tylney. Dying without iflue his title is e x t i n f t . He has left his feat at Wanltead, in F. ffex, and his eftates, to his nephew, Sir James Tylnev Long, Bart. Member in the prelent Parliament for Devizes, in Wiltfhire. An, Officer of high rank, great experience, and approved ability, is now under art arreft, charged with ( peaking and writing difrefpeftfully of his Grace tlie Duke of Richmond. It leems that Colonel D e, the Officer under an arreft, in a letter which he had occafion to write upon fome profeffional bufinefs, took the liberty of animadverting upon fome part of the Duke's c o n d u f t a s Mafter General of the Ordnance; the letter was addreffed to Colonel B n, and was perhaps unavoidably laid before the Duke, who conceived himfelf, in his military capacity, treated with contempt, waited immediately upon the King, and lodged a formal complaint againft Colonel D — — - e , and demanded a Court Ma. tial. The Colonel, in confeqnence of this, was put under an arreft, and we underltand will not make the Duke any apology, or enter into any ex planation of his reatbns for writing as he has done, but J$ determined to fubmit himfelf to the judgment of his profeffion by the lentence of a Court Martial. A very curious marriage was lately celebrated in Drury lane, which ftrongly marks the progrels of folly and diffipation.— Avman of fome connderable fortune was kept for a week in a bagnio in a ftate of intoxication, and became fo infatuated as to prom'ife immediate marriage to one of the moft common proltitutes in the place. Care was taken'that he ( hould be kept as devoid of reafon as poffible, until the bufinsfs was finifhed, which was done with all the fplendorof Old Drury. He gave a grand dinner to the mother abbefs, and as many nuns as the pleafed to invite— and thus a gentleman, who perhaps deferved a better fate, was hurried by intoxication and proportioned infatuation, into a life of fhame and mifery. Let the youth of fpirit and intrigue read this, and learn t o avoid thofe haunts, " arid that company, where the ambition ft, to level ail to the fame ftandard of unhappinefs; and debate- human nature by the corrupt influence of its dregs! A few dags ago, a jolly tar from Portfmouth, who. is a warrant officer , on board one of the men of war inordinary, came- on a friendly viiit to his lifter in Stepney Caufeway, where a beaytifyl young girl, about 17, juft returned to her grandmother's conltantly vifited. Jack, thought the- girl monftroufly handfome, and that ffie would make a good- wife, as the'grandmother h., d put her down for 7000'!. in her will,- and. fo paid his addreffes to her ; atvJ haying in aVi'acquai'ntance of three dayi prevailed upon her to. marry him, he got a licence, and took her to Stepney church inthe morning, where they wedded. In about half an hour after, ( he returned, to her grand-' mother's, and fertt u p a formal meffage to the oid La-, dv, that ( he begged to fay a few words with her,. She was inftantly admitted, and going up to the grandmother, fhe threw herfel. f upon her knees, and begged to be forgiven, for'( he ' ; d married a Captain that morning. The moft violent affection, wl\ en infulted, feldom pardons. The old Lady was inexorable, defired her to depart, which fhe did, the Captain being in waiting below ; and the grandmother having fcratched her out of her will, ( ne fet off for Portfmouth with her marine cara fpofa, wh re they now are either rejoicing in love, or lamenting ( he difap - pointment attendant on fudden paffions of a matrimonial nature. We are affured that the enclofed Epitath was found written in chalk upon a Tomb- ltone in the Clofe of Salilbury, when Dr. Burton filled the See. It was fufpedted and reported that Dean Swift was- the Author, and that he had taken a long journey and uncommon pains to publifh his Satire, and conceal the Author. - HERE Sarum lies, who was as wife And learn'd as T om Aquinus, Lawn ( leeves he wore, yet was no more A C'hriltian than Socinus. Oaths pro and con he fwallow'd down, Lov'd gold like any Layman; He preach'd and pray'd, and yet betray'd God's Holy Church for Mammon.

Firfl ufe of Mahogany in England.— Dr. Gibbons, an eminent Phyfician in the latterend of tlie l i f t , and beginning of the prefent century', h id a brother, a Weft- India Captain, who brought over fome planks of this wood as ballaft. As the Doftor was then building him ahoufe in King- ftreet, Covent- Garden, his brother. thought they might be of ( ervice to him. But the carpenters finding the wood too hard for their tools, they were laid afide for a time as ufelefs. Soon after, Mrs. Gibbons wanting a caridle- box, the Doftor called 011 his cabinet- maker ( Woollalton in Long Acre) to make him one ofTome wood that lay in hisgjirden Wo< jMafto » alfo complained - that it was too hard. The Doftor ( aid he muft get ftronger tools. The candle- box was made and approved;; infomuch, that the Doftor then infifted on. haying a bureau ma'de of the fame wood, which was sccprdingly done, and the fine colonr, polifh, See. were fo pleafing, that he invited all his friends to come and fee it. Among them the Duchefe of Buckingham. Her Grace . begged- fome of the faYne WiSod of Dr. Gibbons; and employed Woollaftofi t o make her a bureau alfo; on which the fame of mahogany, and of Mr. Woollafton, were much ra'lfed, and theWood' became in general ufe. It is remarkable, that the word mahogany is t o be found in no Englifh Dictionary whatever. Thurfday being the day for the removal of the prifoners f r om the different gaols to Newgate; in order for trial at the Oid Bailey, a Tailor got up' behind a hackney coach in which one of bis old meffmates was in cuftody, and placing one foot on each of the rails rifing from the foot board, kept waving his handkerchief and. hallooing as he rode; but the carriage turning ( harp out of Berkley- ftreet into St. John'slane, by a fudden jolt the unfortunate tar was thrown oyer the hind wheel, which paffing over his head,' his ( kull was f r s f t u r e d in a terrible manner, and by . the violence of the fall hi. s lhoulder was dillocated*. - He was taken t o St. Bartholomew's Hofpital. Laft Wednefday being tho laft day before moving the prifoners to Newgate from New- prifon, Clerk- . ehwell, ong James Hamilton, alias Smith, endea-. voured to. perfuade Tome of his fellow prifoners t o. join with him to make t'heir eicape, bpt the others, - did not conftnt, and refufed fo to do, on account of. their irons. The keeper and his fervants, ever finoe', Hamilton was committed to New- prilon, had a very watchful eye over " him, well knowing his. cafe to be defperate,- and'himfelf to be 61ie of the moft daring" old offenders ; although he was well- ironed he had the audacity that lame evening, by himfelf, ' to a t -; tempt Iris- eft: ape, b y procuring a quantity of Stotelr; fnuff - in . his pocket, and throwing the lame in the turnkey's eyes as he was opening t h e gate ; but the' turnkey held hhn fall till the- keeper arid his." other fervan. ts appeared, who feciired aiid chained lirm" down to the floor:' It is thought that he meant t o do murder, or fome other defj> eiate a f t of cruelty, as o n ' fearching him two large fharp riafc'ed kniVes wfcrt" found in his coat pocket. - Hie next moriiing he Was - moved to- Newgate, when the keepes ajid: lws- fervants'' being informed of his behaviour, he immediately Wa'j1 ordered to. be heavy ironed and put into the cells.

Utrecht, Oil. 14. An immediate war with the Emperor feems inevitable; and indeed this iffue might have been predifted in the earliefl ftage of his controverfy with the Republic, refpefting the navigation of the Scheldt, fince the event that is now on the point of taking place was fo plainly indicated by the inflexibility with which the King of the Romans perfifted in his demands, and the firmnefs with which they were eppofed by the Batavian Senate. On Sunday laft Lor. d Waldegrave vifited their Ma lefties at Windfor Caftle, in return for the honour done aim by the Queen, who paid his Lorclfhip a vifit a few days fince. On Monday evening his Grace the Duke of Argyle, and his fuite, arrived in town from Scotland, and in a few days is to fet Off with his Duchefs for the South cf France. We hear that the report which appeared in feveral of the papers, dating that the African, Company had at laft fucceeded in their applications to the Board of Ordnance, for a fort to be erected for their goods fent from Europe, is entirely without foundation, nor is their requeft likely to be decided upon for fome time to come, on account of a difference now fubfifting between the French and Englilh Minifters, refpefting how the boundaries were meant to be fettled by the late treaty of peace. By an article in that treaty, ihe King of Great Britain gives up Senegal, and its dependencies, and alfo Goree to the French K i n g ; and the French King by another guarantees James Fort and the river Gambia to the King of Great Britain ; another article exprefsly fays, Commiffioners ( h? II be appointed to fettle the boundaries; after which it is agreed by the 19th article, that all places not particularly defcribed are to be given up reciprocally to thofe to whom they belonged previous to the war under this article the French claim Albrnda, afaftory on the northern banks of the Gambia, fituate between James Fort and the Bunian I ( land; the Englifti contend that it ought to be evacuated. There is now a negociation on fo ® t ou the fubjeft ; and in the mean time the river is wholly abandoned by the Englifh, and the trade engroffed by other nations. Fridays Pofi and Exprefs. LONDON, Thurfday, Oft. 21. N Otwithftanding the late news from the Continent relative to the flopping of the Imperial Ship by the Dutch, and the threatning afpe£ t of politics in confequence thereof, yet in England the alarm has fubfided, and the funds have been on the rife ever fince Tuefday, with a brifk market at near one per cent, advance. This looks as if the publicin general thoUghta war between the Emperor and the Dutch not likely to happen, the idea of which fome of the principal merchants in the city have all along feouted, particular the French houfes, whom we know within this three wseks to have received orders from Fi ance t6 buy up confnkrable fuifcs in oiir funds, in cafe an alarm fhould be\ fpi? ad among the Stockholders from the appearance\ of things on the other fide the water : Great quantity " of ( lock lias in confequence been ' purchafed ; and, from the urefent profpeft of the funds, the French will be confiaerable gainei s by our late apprehenfions. The news which lately arrived, of the Dutch hav- ; ing infulted the Imperial flag in the Scheldt, has already had a moll difagreeable effect on the proprietors, of hotels, at the Well end of - the town; almoll allr the officers who are now on their different avocations in the metropolis, and belong to the different powers intereftsd in the prefent threatening ftorm 011 the continent, having received immediate orders to returti to join either the fleets or armies, to which they t'fefpeftively belong. The Dutch funds have fallen very eonfiderably in confequehce of the bppofition given to the Emperor's ( hips in the Scheldt. As to the report of the firing having taken place without defign, there is an abfurdity on the fact of. i t ; as the ( hips weie ftationed there with no other view than to impede the paffageof the Imperial veffets. 1 Yefterday their Majefties andthe Princefs Royal arrived at Kew from Windfor, from whence his Majefty immediately came to St. James's ; the levee broke tip,, at . three o'clock ; the Secretaries of State, and others of the Miniltry, had conferences with his Majeftv till near five, when he returned to Kew. The lame day his Grace the Duke of Argyle was at Court for the ftrft time fince his arrival from Scotland, and had a private conference with his Majcrty. The fame day Lord Chewton was at the levee, for the firft time fince his return from abroad. Yefterday General Boyd had an audience of the King at St. James's. A letter from Dover fays, that a Gentleman, who arrived there from Boulogne, fays, that he faw juft landed the day he failed, foine fat oxen, fheep, lambs, and feveral calves; and that he learned by a friend that the veffel came from the coaft of Suffex. It is confidently reported that Lunardi has challenged Blanchard to a balloon- race, in three heats: the firft with the wind, the fecond acrofs the wind, and the third, which loofes leaft againft the wind. The betts on Monday and Tuefday night in the neighbourhood of St. James's were very confiderable in favour of each adventurer, and great odds were laid on both fides, and it is politively declared that above jo. oool. is already depending. Two illuftrious charafters have propoted this plan as a rational incitement to a further improvement of thofe wonderful machines of human invention; and three of our principal mechanics are now aftually em ployed in condrufting an apparatus to facilitate the undertaking. Were we to appeal to common under- ( landing, independent of mathematical enquiry, we fliould certainly conclude, that as a furprifing fubtending power has already baen procured to raife men in the air, that by combining an accelerating power, operating agijinft the impetus of the current of the atmofphere, any direftien whatfoever can be given to the aerollats, and thus render them both pleafant and perhaps highly ferviceable to mankind. Dr. Prieftly has communicated an experiment, by which he has difcovered an inflammable air, that can be prepared for one- twentieth of theexpence attending the preparation at prefent in ufe. A gentleman who arrived on Monday lad from the Northern part of England, over a great part of which he has traverfed in the courfe of the lad fix weeks, brings certain information that the Commutation Tax upon Windows is univerfally reprobated ; and M r . P, is loaded with the levered reproaches. Similar accounts have been received from the Wedern parts of this kingdom ; and in feveral of the borough towns they are talking of indrufting their Members to obtain a repeal of the fo- much- detefted Window Tax. This morning fome difpatches were received from Lifbon, brought over in the Jenny, Emmerfon, arrived at Plymouth; they contain an account of two Dutch men of war having arrived there in great diftrefs from the Ead- Indies' Yefterday morning an eminent merchant of Colemanftreet ( hot himielf through the head in a room adjoin ing his compting- houfe, while a friend, whom he had appointed to br. eakfafl, was waiting for him in the parlour. The deceafed has left a wife and nine children, who fortunately were at his country houfe when the melancholly event happened, which is fuppofed to be occafioned by various difappointments, but particularly in not receiving remittances from America, where he had fent goo^ s to a confiderable amount, On Sunday afternoon as Lucas, a Canftable, and an officer belonging to the Police, was coming thro' Chick- lane, obierving a woman with a bundle, he accofted her with, " Well, miftrel's, What have you get there ?" T o which ( he replied, with feeming confufidn, " What is that to y o u ! " This brought on fome ( trong reafons that increafed his fufpicions; he infided on fearchine her," and for that purpofe conveyed her into a ptiblic- houle. On opening the bundle, it was found to contain three thoufand and upwards forged damps for receipts; and on more drift examination were alfo found a wedge of fiiver, weighing about fix ounces, and two fmaller pieces which had evidently been in a crucible.— From many cirnumftances, there is great reafon tobel leve fhe is an accomplice with the man frequently advertifed in the Public Papers for having put off forged Bank notes in different difguifes, and is known in Bow- tlreet under the appellation of Old Patch. She is about forty years of age, and has the appearance of a Jewefs. A a . Fov this life the ( aimer mad at tqaft fclect one particular horfe, enter it, and pay the duty accordingly. ThS above conftruftion being a matter of importance to all farmers and others keeping horfes, a proper attention to it may feture them from the penalty and much incidental trouble, to which their ne^ left or refufal to pav the duty as above fpccified and direiled WiU inevitably fubjefl them. Oh Saturday laft was launched at the Revi Dr. Poyntz's, of North Creak, in this county, a curious and beautiful air balloon ; it afcended with great celerity, went in a South- weft direction, and gave great fatisfaftion to a concourfe of people, among whom was the Dowager Countefs of Spencer, who affifted in fillidg the balloon and letting it off. The balloon launched from Bungay Common, on t h e , n t h inftant, at half pad one o'clock, in the afternoon by Mr, Waterman, We hear fell the fame afternoon at minutes pad three at Peivhurft, near T u n - bridge, iij. Kent, which is 139 miles didant from Bungay Common. Lad week the noted Harold, went from Edgefield to Norwich and back again on foot ( which is 38 miles) for a wager of five guineas. He Was allowed eight hours to perform it in, but did it with great eafe in feven hours and twenty minutes'. He is a very corpulent mail and labours under'infirmities. He is alfo faid to be lineally descended from Harold Harefoot, who was vanquilhed by William the Conqueror in 1066 at Heathfield, near Hadings, in Suffex. A few days fince fome fmugglers having met at a houfe on the coaft to fettle their accounts, and make a divifton of money received for goods fold, it unfortunately happened one of them had loft a parcel which contained tool, but en returning back, and making enquiry concerning it, he luckily met with a man who had found it, who returned it unopened. The fmuggler, as a reward for his gratuity, gave him five guineas. A few days fince a raaa, about 30 years of age, near fix feet high, of a dark complexion, dreffed in a light blue coat, called on feveral tradefnien in Yarmouth and ordered a confiderable quantity of Irifh cloth, which he defired to be fent to an inn with a bill of parcels. When the goods were carried, he took the bill of parcels andi'aid he would fend the Money when lie got home. He gave his addrefs to the tradefmen of whom be ordered the goods on a card neatly printed, with the names of Hawkins, Duncan and Gill, Cookrow, Bury St. Edmund's, Suffolk. A pertbn who anfwers the defcription of this man called at a filverfinith's and offered to fell fix'fiiver fpoons and a brace of piftols. He left Yarmouth on foot laft Tuefday afternoon. . Upon enquiry there are no fuch perfons'as Hawkins, Duncan and Gill live a t Bury, therefore it is fnppoled he is a fwindler. On Monday lad M r . Stangroom, officer of excife, feized at Hunftanton ( affided by a party of Elliott's light dragoons) 40 half ankers of geneva, See. which was fafely conveyed the fame day to the excife office, Lynn. The colle& ion at the charity fermons, preached laft Sunday in Bury, by the Rev. M r . Harrifon, amounted to 7 t l . i s . fid. a larger fum than ever was before collected on the like occafion.

On Friday laft an inquifition was taken before T ho mas Marks, gent, on view of the body of John Pleafants, who was accidentally rode over, as he was croffing the Catron road, on Thurfday the 7th inftant, when he received a mortal fraiture in the head, of which he lahguifhed. until the 15th inftant, and then expired.

About nine in tiie morning the balloon being held up between tbe two poles, the fignal was fired to commence the proeel's of filling, which took place foon a f t e r ; the inflammable air palled in very rapidly through each appendix, and at about ten o'clock another eun was fired to denote the balloon was half filled ; the operation was continued with the fame fuccefs, and before twelve the balloon was Sufficiently charged with gas'. The boat and wings were now fixed to the net, a n d ' t h e inftruments, ballatt, and proyilions being put" into the vefl'el, with the hardy Aeronauts, the fignal for departure was now fired, and the balloon attended in a llow and majeitic manner to _ t. be height of 20 fe^ t; but being too much loaded with ballait, i t came down into a garden adjoining to the place of experiment; a bag of land, a g r e a t c o a t , and a fpeaking trumpet being thrown out, it again aroie, and foon attained a confiderable elevation, and in about 20 minutes, from the hazinefs of the weather, was removed from the fight of the fpeftators at Clieliea. • ' While the travellers remained in fight they were feen to wave their banners with the greateft composure, and to manage the wings of the veflel with apparent dexterity. T h e ballooil took adire& ion a little to the fouthward of the Weft, and'by the time it reached Sunbury, in Middlefex, it was no_ longer capable of carrying the two paffengers, it having unavoidably loft fome of the gas; it was therefore, neceflary that one of them ( hould quit the boat. For this purpofe they defcended in a field at Sunbury, in Middlefex, belonging to Mrs. Boehm: and Mr. Sheldon, with great reluitance, left his fellow- traveller, After having put in a fulhcient quantity of ballaft to compenfafeTor the, weightof Mr^, Sheldon, and to prevent too rapid an afcenfion, Mr. Blanchaixl departed alone, and went on with great celerity m a South Weft direftion, and a little before four in the afternoon had reached Rurnfey, in Hampfhire, where he defcended by means of a rope fall ened to the boat, was carried round the market- place in a triumphal manner, the balloon ttill floating in the atmofphere, and the intrepid Aeronaut fitting in his car. The ceremony being over, the boat was hauled down into the ftreet, and intelligence immediately . fent to . town t o inform his friends of the termination of his voy-' age. The news was brought to Mr. Hunter's, in Great Marlborough- ftreet, and to Mr. Thomas Sheldon's, in Tottenham- court road, at twelve o'clock yefterday noon, by three gentlemen who were accidentally on tlieir- way t o London at- the very time when' the balloon reached Rumfey, and who left M r . Blanclinrd fitting in his car receiving the compliments and admiration'of about fix thousand fpectators. Rumfey is 73 miles diftant from London, , fQ that allowing for the time , taken up. at Sunbury, the whole. of the journey mull, have been performed, 111 three hours and a half. The gentlemen who brought the intelligence from Rumfey met Mr. SheldSn at Alton in Hampfhire, who fent a letter to town by them. He was immediately going on to meet his fellow- traveller, and they were both expected in town laft night. We hope the public will pay that tribute which is due fo the merit and abilities of Mr. Blanchard ; the exactitude whiclr lie obferved as to the time of his departure, and the final fuccefs of his v » yage, entitle fiim to univerfal patronage and diltinftion. T h e procefs of filling Mr. Blanchard's balloon was carried 011 under the direflion of Mr. Argand, a native of Geneva, and an experienced chymift. He was affiled by thirty workmen,. and, the whple was condu& ed with the gfeateft coblnefs,. and' completed with the utmoft fuccefs. Yefterday, about 3 o'clock, Mr. Blanchard and Mr.. Sheldon arrived at Chelfea, where they were met by the gentlemen of the Committee, and conduced t o town with great proceffional pomp. The gondola was placed on the feat of a pliaeton, in which the travellers were feated.— The gentlemen of the Committee arranged themfelves in- pairs, decorated with white wands and blue ribbons— A number of ladies i ornamented with ribbons, in - a chain of carriages,"- brought up the rear. . 1 The. proce. ffion was accompanied with two excellent bands of mufic, and the enfign were borne before the airy machine. In this ftate" they conducted tbe balloon, and lodged it in the great room at Springgardens, where it is to be exhibited. When Mr. Blanchard's balloon came down in the garden adjacentto Mr. Lochee's, he was very urgent willi Mr., SheWon. to alight,- and Cuffer him to make his voyage alone. - M r . Sheldon would not comply, and. a fltort dilpute took placed " If you ' are my friend-, fays Mf. Blanchard, you will alight. My fame, rrty- all, depends on'my fucceis."" Still; Mr. Sheldon was pofitive— On whi'clrthfc lrttl'e ftiJfi in a violent paffion ( wore that he would'ltarve him— point du- chicken— You fliall have n o chicken by Gar-, " fays M r .

B'afrington, the Rioted pick- pocket, - was deteited pn, Saturday at the. going up of Mr. Blanchard's balloon, and'inftantly handcuffed, by the peaceofficers in waiting. Another of the tribe " was. alfo' detected at the fame place. . ' The'pickpockets were particularly bllfy on Satur-' day, a'hrf purfes, watShes, and handkerchiefs, were" conveyed from one pocket to another, with a dexterity that Pinetti himl'elf cannot equal. One pick pock&' was laid hold of, and carried to the river near Batterlea- bridge, where, for a quarter of an hour, he underwent the moft fevere diliipline of ducking, while upon the leaft reftftance, 1' he . was knocked 011 the head with an oar. After this he was thrown over- board, and allowed to fcramble on lhore, which, heeffefted. with great difficulty. The repott was that he was a flioemaker from Hammerlmitli, and a reputable workman. The ducking, - however, will probably make him ftick t o t h e l a f t.

" Sunday night laft, between the hour of feven and eight o'clock, one of the moft daring afts of violence " was committed on the perfon at Mr. James Murphy, an eminent fkinner, in . Watling- ltreet, ever known in this city :— Sitting by his parlour fire, all the family being out, except the girl and himfelf, a perfon rapped at the door, enquiring whether Mr. Murphy was'at home, and on being anfwered in the affirmative, defired the girl to I n f o rm him, that a gentleman wanted to ( peak to him. Mr. Murphy defired the gentleman might walk in, which he refufed ; upon which he got up, and went to the parlour door, alking, who wanted him? T h e anfwer he received was, " You villain, have we caught you at l a f t ? " the ruffian at the fame time pulling him forcibly by the breaft towards the ftreet, giving the girl a blow on the head with a piltol, and blowing the candle out. He had fcarce got outlide - the door, when he was f'urrounded by feven or eight villains, who, with dreadful imprecations, vowed they would have lire life, fnapiped two different piftols at him, which fortunately burnt priming, and ftruck at him repeatedly with fwords - a n d ( ticks. The fellow who firft laid hold of liim, and whom he feized, fnapped alfo a piftol, which had no other ill confequence than fingeing his hand witlvthe powder.— Providentially he got loofe from them, and running back to his own door, that fortunately remained open, he had the prefenceof mind inftantly tolhut it, which proved the means of faving bis life. The villains finding themfelves difappointed in their purpofe, dembjiflied the windows and globe over the hall door, at the fame time roaring out, with molt terrible execrations, " take that for your apprentices." — A grocer, who lives next door, upon the firft alarm, was running to his affiftance, but was ( topped by a fellow putting a piftol t o his breaft, and another execrable villain had the unaparalelled audacity to put a piftol to the bread of Mr. Troy, who . lives'in the laid ftreet, walked with h im ten or a, dozen doors from the. fc< ne of action, and then fnapped the piftol at him, but happily without eft'eft."

Mr. Longford, who was in the fiftyfcvenih year of her- age, by catching cold, wis feized with violent cholickly pains, which became intolerable, aud would at times continue for eight or ten diy's without intermiflioh. She was two yeirs under the. care of the molt eminent phyfician!, md often, by their idvice, frequented the Hot Wells, neir Briltol ;— intercha geabiy fhe had recouife to medicine, which ftemed to palliate t ' e complaints, at length the diftemper returned, and tbe pa. roxyma became more acute and alarming. At times fhe was afflicted wiih a Cold Senfation or Chilnefs all over the Body; Cold Sweats, Fainting Fits, Sicknefs, Giddinefs. Convullions, violent Pain in the Belly, which at times extended to its whole circumference, beating a ftrong pulfe, and moving from place to place. Here appeared manifeft fympions of a nervous difeafe, the moft difficult to cure. As 1 was reading the St. James's Chronicle, I obferved the very extrawdinaiy encomiums of your medicine called The ORIENTAL VEGETABLE CORDIAL, . bottle of which was procured frem Mefl'rs.
