" To The Printer of the WhitehalI Evening Post SIR, HAVING read a newspaper the other day, wherein I saw some paragraphs intimating that the Corps of Engineers were not well used by their present establishment, I was naturally led . to compare its treatment with that of the Royal Regiment of Artillery ; in which it was represented that the promotions were more ra- pid than in the Corps of Engineers. The fol- lowing true statement of both will make it ap- pear to the weakest capacity, which ( if any) has the greatest cause of discontent. One matter is very clear, that the present Master General has done more for both corps than any of his pre- decessors. This will be visible from the state in which his Grace of Richmond, See. found them in the year 1782, being as follows, viz. Royal Artillery Esta- blishment, 1784. 1 Master general 1 Lieutenant general 4 Colonels comman- dant 4 Second colonels 5 Lieutenant colonels 4 Second lieutenant colonels 5 Majors 4 Second majors 50 Captains 40 Captain lieutenants go First lieutenants 50 second lieutenants, besides staff- officers Royal Artillery Esta- blishment. 1 Master general j Lieutenant general 4 Colonels comman- dant 5 Lieutenant colonels 5 Majors 31 Captains 41 Captain lieutenants First lieutenants sSecond lieutenants, 5des the staff- offi- Engineer Establishment. 1 Master general 1 Lieutenant general 1 Engineer in chief as colonel 2 Lientenant colonels 4 Majors 1 z Captains la Captain lieutenants 14 First lieutenants 30 Second lieutenants And now both corps being new modelled ( as hereafter set forth) by the Master General, the world will see the very respectable state in which both corps are, compared to what they were be- fore he commanded them, viz. Engineer Establishment. I Master general 1 Lieutenant general 1 Engineer in chief as colonel 6 Colonels 6 Lieutenant colonels Here the eldest captain, when promoted jumps over all the majors in the army. 12 Captains 11 - Captain lieutenants 2i First lieutenants II Second lieutenants 55 23d Captains, captain lieutenants, first lieute- nants and second lieutenants, have 26 field officers in the Royal Artillery to look up to for promo- tion, being nearly nine to one field officer; and nine of the said field officers are of an inferior rank to those of the Engineer Corps, viz. nine majors. Besides, in order to carry the present establifh- ment of the said Royal Artillery into execution, without being of any more expence to Govern- ment than thirty- six pounds ten shillings, which exceeds the last establishment the sum of one thousand and ninety- five pounds, there is a daily stoppage from the two junior second colo- nels, two junior second lieutenant colonels, two junior majors, six junior captains, six junior cap- tain lieutenants, and six junior first lieutenants, in the whole per day two pounds eighteen shil- lings, amounting to one thousand fifty- eight pounds ten shillings per annum. This stoppage as aforesaid goes to pay the number of supernu- merary second lieutenants, which the present establishment has been the cause of; and is to continue a tax on those old officers until they all drop off by vacancies, while the supernumerary second lieutenants of Engineers are wholly paid by Government. There is likewise a provision for the superan- nuated captain lieutenants of Engineers in their Invalid establishment conformable to their rank ; « n the contrary, in the Artillery, they are put into that retired state as first lieutenants only; while fifty- five captains, first lieutenants, and se- cond lieutenants, have thirteen field officers in the Engineer corps to look up to for promotion; being very little more than four to one field of- ficer, none of which are under the rank of lieu- tenant- colonel. By this proportion it is very plain, that the Engineers' promotion must be upwards of dou- ble the Artillery's, besides that the Engineers eldest captain, when made a field officer, skips over all the majors in the army into the rank of lieute- nant colonel, which rank the eldest captain of Artillery, when made a major, very probably will not obtain under ten years longer service. — A very pretty prospect for the Captain of Artillery, who must be grown grey- haired be- fore he gets a company Another matter have to remark, which is, that the Engineers, on account of their extra pay, from the Second Lieutenant to the Chief Engineer, are enabled to live very handsomely ; while the Officers of Artillery, in the inferior classes, can scarce make both ends meet. Notwithstanding the very great advantages which it must appear, from the aforesaid real state- ment, that the Engineers have both in future promotion and extra pay ( without so much as one single farthing being stopped from any of the Engineer Corps, in consideration of the very high rank which has lately been bestowed upon them) over the Artillery, none of the latter seems even to complain, much less publish their discontent in the news- papers, against their pre- sent Head and Benefactor. I am, Sir, A Friend to both Corps. Oct. 30, 1784. CUSTOM- HOUSE, LONDON. November 11th, 1784.

Mr. WHITE'S Address to the Community, re- specting concealed Pregnancy. LEGITIMATE Pregnancy, though counte- nanced with the approbation of parents, rela- tions, and friends ; though the utmost assistance be contributed to alleviate the numerous complaints peculiar to that state; and though certain of an agreeable provision for the infant, when born, is yet a condition humanity commiserates. Such being the case, under the most favourable circumstances,. what must be that of concealed pregnancy, where prudence on the one hand com- pulsively dictates the acknowledgement of a pre- vious marriage, and fear of the implacable resent- ment of offended parents on the other, most pow- erfully forbids it? Certainly this state of suspence, distraction, and despair of mind, must excite com- passion in the breast of every humane christian. This is confessedly a miserable situation, yet how much more lamentable and distressed must the un- happy condition ot illegitimate pregnancy be, when subject to the irreconcileable disposition of too rigid parents or guardians, and the consequent shame attending such miserable misfortune i No friend to place a confidence in, to procure the least necessary assistance ; no retreat for peace of mind, but grief and despair the only prospeCt in view, urging to the fatal consequences of an irretrievable rash resolution. Upon cool, deliberate reflection, what a subject of sorrowful contemplation must this untimely pe- riod of an unfortunate woman be, who might have existed and repented of past misconduct, been a comfort to her kindred and a useful monitor to her sex, had more lenity been observed, and her cha- racter secured in time from the malicious reproaches of base censure 1 What can be more barbarous than to triumph over lost honour and reputation, which to delicate sentiment, self- conviction alone is sufficient reproof, inflicting a punishment insup- portably severe. Reflect therefore, but a moment upon our own imperfections; we shall then not only be ashamed of having exulted over the distres- sed, but truly console the misfortunes resulting from the frailty of human nature. Humanity and christianity commiserate the frail- ty of our degenerate nature, upon which solid foundation, regardless of illiberal invectives pecu- liar to the narrow notions of presumptive perfect beings, my endeavours continue invincibly fixed to preserve not only reputation, but the little babes from falling a sacrifice to the uncharitable censure and derision of ignorant, base, defamatory persons, and to prevent the too frequent fatal effects of de- spair, under so many unavoidable melancholy hours of reflection, by accommodating ladies with pri- vate separate lying- in apartments, agreeable to their respective circumstances. When first attempted to assist in this despairing condition, I engaged appartments in different parts. of the town for that purpose; but the natural in- quisitive curiosity of the persons who let the lodg- nigs, the uncertainty of Our being disengaged to attend wHen wanted, and the difficulty of procur- ing sober, discreet nurses upon such emergencies, gave me convincing proofs that it was impossible for any person to make good an allowanee of secre- cy, or give the due attendance absolutely, necessary in such cases, unless under my own immediate in- spection. These disagreeable inconveniencies de- termined me to appropriate my own house for the reception of pregnant ladies, Under a regulation which I haVe experienced to obviate every reason- able suggested objection, as the necessary assistance in labour, the nurse, and every other requisite, are immediately obtained by the lady ringing her bell Those regardless of reputation will not upon any terms be treated with.

On Saturday his Majesty and the Prince of Wales, with several of the Nobility, took the diversion of stag- hunting on Windsor Forest. The same day in the afternoon Lord Sidney, Secretaiy of State, had a private conference with his Majesty at Windsor. Saturday evening the Prince of Wales came to Carleton house, and yesterday set off to pay a visit to Lord Clermont, at his country seat in Norfolk. Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Du- chess of Cumberland arrived last month at Avig- non, in France, where we are informed those princely travellers mean to take up their resi- dence for the winter. On Saturday the Clerks began paying at the Cofferer's and other Offices his Majesty's House- hold a quarter's salary up to Michaelmas last. According to letters from Ratisbon by yester- day's mail, the ELector of Bavaria is making preparations at his palace in that city, to receive his Imperial Majesty, who was daily expected there from Vienna, in his way to Flanders. The Elector of Bavaria has as line a body of troops as any in Germany, Co that the Emperor's visit is expected to be political. They write from Buda, that the Emperor having received a Courier from Brussells appear- ed much concerned on reading the dispatches brought by him, and Immediately gave orders to the troops to march for the Netherlands. The Prince Albert de Saxe- Teschin is to have the command of an army of 80,000 men. From what we have heard, our Ministers act with a proper firmness and spirit, Baron Lynden's stay here will not probably be very long. The report is, that he has not been sent ns a formal Resident, but chiefly in the quality of an agent on a particular business ; and that business ( could any one have thought it ?) is said to be, to demand of this country, in the event of a rupture with the Emperor, her quota of shipping and troops, as being one of the par tics guarantees of the treaty of 1731. If this be really so, the answer to his requisition ought to be so short and decisive, as to save him the trouble of unpacking his baggage. It needs on- ly to bid him recollect the recent conduct of his own country towards us, on a similar occa- sion ; and then, to ask him, with, every possible mark of indignant contempt and disdain, if he thinks those who keep no treaties themselves, ' can claim any ties upon others! If this short query does not put an end to his negotiation, let a dip in the Shannon be no longer proverbial. teague must be content to resign to Mynbeer, for ever, his hitherto disputed claim to national bronze. Letters from Utrecht, dated Nov. 5, men- tion that the States General had ordered the gar- rison of Bergen- op- Zoom, which lately consisted only of 1500 men, to be augmented to 4000. The garrisons of Breda, Bois- le- Duc, and other towns on the frontiers, are also directed to be considerably increased. An express is preparing at the East India House to be sent out to Bengal by the Osterly East- In- diaman. The packet is to contain among other articles the late resolution of the Court of Di- rectors, in respect to returning thanks to Mr. Hastings, for his upright and wise administration of affairs in India; and that the Court do, now that peace with the several country powers is confirmed, and Mr. Hastings's system for the fu- ture government of India firmly established, ac- cept of and receive his resignation of the Gover- nor Generalship of India, wishing him health, and a safe return to his native country. Mr. Hastings is expected to come home over land through Persia, by way of Bombay and Suez, the Governor General having resolved on a for- mal leave of the Court of Delhi, and some of the country Princes, with whom he has been upon a footing of the sincerest friendship, con- solidated by a mutual exchange of kind offices. The Minerva frigate of 32 guns is fitting at Portsmouth, supposed to be for carrying over some lately appointed Governors, Stc. to the East Indies. Saturday morning some dispatches were re- ceived from Virginia, which were brought over in the Industry, Capr. Nimmo, arrived in Has- tings road. Extract of a Letter from the Hague, Oct. 29. " The intention of the States General being to engage, in the present circumstances, some corps of foreign troops, the States of Zealand have already charged their Deputies to conform to the report of the Generality to take into the service of the State the 5th battalion of infantry of the reigning Prince, of Waldeck. The Prince de Salm is also engaged to furnish, the begin- ning of April, a body of light troops. We are assured that the Landgrave of Hesse Cassel has offered 10,000 soldiers well disciplined. " The above troops, joined to those of the Republic, and to the different corps which we are still engaging as well in Germany as else- where, will make the army of the States amount to 55,000 or 60,000 men, with which even with- out any further foreign assistance, it is not im- possible to resist superior forces, by simply act- ing on the defensive ; which hitherto appears 10 be the result of the wise deliberations of their High Mightinesses. Local knowledge, the ar- dent love of the country, and the justice of the cause, constitute advantages which are not to be distained, and which are happily united in favour of the defenders of the country." Extract of a Letter dated Hague, Nov. 9. " Several reports having been spread tending to asperse the conduct of the Prince Stadtholder, his most Serene Highness was pleased to make the following specch to thc States General, as- sembled on the first instant. High and Mighty Lords, " It is now near two years that I laid before your High Mightinesses an account of what I had done in my capacity of Admiral General of the States during the war with Great Britain. Since that time I deemed it fitting for me to despise thc false and unfavorable aspersions thrown upon my conduCt, as long at least as they contained only some general charges with- out specifying any pointed faCts, in hopes that if your High Mightinesses wished to have some further light thrown on the subjeCt, you would require it of me personally. In such case, your silence I had a right to construe into a tacit ac- knowledgment that nothing in my conduct ap- peared to you unsatisfaCtory, much less deserv- ing of your disapprobation. Nor should I now attempt to trouble your High Mightinesses, had it not for some time past been reported, that I had, by a private letter to Vice Admiral Byland, forbid his sailing for Brest, contrary to your resolution of the 3d of OCt. 1782; the same rumour stating that this supposed letter had been laid before the Commissioners appointed by your High Mightinesses to enquire into ihe failure of the projeCted expedition to Brest. General imputations, to which every man is liable, deserve nothing but contempt; but now that they are pointed, and published with the utmost confidence ; when I see myself charged with having acted in direCt opposition to the re- solutions entered into by your High Mighti- ness;. I think it highly necessary that the false- hood of so malicious an accusation be laid open before the whole nation, but especially when it is published in the newspapers circulated by authority. " Hurt as I must feel myself at so envenom- ed a calumny, I request that your High Migh- tinesses will enquire of your said Commissioners, if they have received such a letter, or any pa- per of the like nature, from the hands of Vice Admiral Comte Byland, or any other persons whatsoever. That as your High Mightinesses may ( as they will undoubtedly) be convinced of the falshood of such a report, and of course give such assurances as to your high wisdom may seem meet, to undeceive the whole nation, concerning the groundless imputation which has been levelled at me, amongst many others equally false and unmerited; that my efforts for the general good of our dear country, may not by such dark and unprovoked aspersions be ex- posed to suspicion, and thus rendered ineffec- tual" The States General have, in consequence of the above, ordered a copy A be sent to their Commissioners, that the matter may be fully investigated. The same Gazette contains also an instance of the friendly intentions of the French Court. The writer of this article begins his paragraph by delivering it upon the best authority, and con- cludes by saying, because n0 doubt he wishes it, that it is totally improbable. The information is, that a Dutch staff officer has received certain advice, that his most christian Majesty had sold to the " Emperor 2oo pieces of ordnance, which are for the obvious purpose, to be deposited in the French arsenals situated on the borders of Flanders. The following is the copy of the paper deli- vered by the Dutch Ministers at Brussells to Comte Belgiojoso: " The Ministers Plenipotentiary of the Re- public of the United Provinces, having received from his Excellency Comte Belgiojoso, his Im- perial Majesty's orders, signifying, that by the conduCt, which his said Majesty stiles an insult offered to his flag, the Republic is supposed to have begun hostilities, in consequence of which Baron Reischach has been recalled; the afore- said Dutch Ministers beg leave most forcibly to insist on the declaration delivered by them to his Excellency Comte Belgiojoso, on the part of the States ; that the latter protesting, that as their sole aim was to support their uncontrovertible right, they cannot be suspected of any hostile aggression, which is the less to be laid to their charge, as they positively declared not to stand any ways answerable for the consequences that may ensue from the particular confirmation which h s Imperial Majesty may be pleased to put upon the affair.

The public will now judge, what degree of credit ought to be given to those who can seriously assert, that there are no less than eighty- two Members in the present House of Commons, who have acquired fortunes in In- dia. The three new East- India ships lately launch- ed,. which the Company have taken up for this season, are the King George, Capt. Court; Triton, Capt. Elphinstone; and Stafford, Capt. Smith. On the 25th day of September last, a ship called the Ebenezer, of Pensgrund, in Norway, James Neilson, master, laden with deals, and bound for Bristol, struck upon the Goodwin sands. The master having made signals of dis- tress, about 20 persons came in boats from Ramsgate, and were employed by him in getting the ship off the sands, which they would in all probability have effected, but were prevented from using the proper means for that purpose, by upwards of 200 persons, who came from Deal, and by force and violence boarded the ship, abused and ill treated the master and his crew, broke open the ship's hatches and lockers, scut- tled the decks and cabbin, and plundered her of part of her cargo; and in order to prevent her being got off the sands, some of them cut away the ship's cable and parts of her shrouds, and drove out the bolts of the bit- head, whereby the windlass was so disabled that no farther means could be used for her preservation ; and the master and his crew were obliged to quit their ship, which was afterwards found afloat in the Gull Stream. A Letter from Yarmouth, received on Friday night, says, that the high winds have lately done a great deal of damage amongst the ship- ping j some vessels belonging to that port were drove on shore just below the town, and it is feared will be lost; and several colliers are drove from their anchors, and forced out to sea, and it is feared they will share the same fate. The Swift cutter has taken a French smug- gling vessel from Cherburg, loaded with tea, brandy, and other goods, and brought her into Portland ; she is new- built, it being the second voyage she had made. v A smuggling cutter, mounting 12 guns, and 90 men, was chased off Scilly on Monday last by two of his Majesty's cruizers; the crew of the Smuggler ran the vessel on shore, and bored holes in her bottom, and a gale of wind coming on she was soon bulged. The crew got into different boats, and thc cutters took only six of them. Saturday morning, at nine o'clock, Samuel Harris and John North were taken from the cells of Newgate, put in a cart, and conveyed to the gallows, which was ereCted on a platform, at Execution Dock. They were both decently dressed in mourning, and seemed exceedingly penitent. A Popish Priest attended one of them, and they were guarded by the Marshal of the Admiralty and a number of his officers. Harris, the smuggler who was executed on Saturday, was a waiter in one of the principal taverns at Margate ; he was a handsome young fellow about twenty- five years of age, and had been married but a few months. He and North confessed at the place of execution, that they both fired twice into the King's boat, but hoped that their balls did no injury. Few Sessions of Admiralty at the Old Bailey have produced more extraordinary circumstances than the last. It is most sincerely to be wished, that the dreadful fate of Harris and North will awake to a due sense of their situation those un. fortunate men who have inconsiderately em. barked in the smuggling business. It has ar- rived to that pitch of audacity, that nothing but a rigorous enforcement of the several Acts of Parliament can put a stop to it, and prevent any more of our fellow- subjeCts from falling a sacrifice to such unfair and illicit undertakings. It it worthy of remark, that there were eight seamen on board the smuggling lugger, six of whom were killed or mortally wounded by the King's cutter, and the other two were executed on Saturday. On Saturday William Saxby, Esq. Water Bailiff, condemned two narrow dragnets taken from some watermen at Greenwich, catching of smelts, they being out of season : he also con- demned an anlawful net taken from a barge- master at fulham, all which are ordered to be destroyed, and a summons was issued out against the bargemaster to appear before the Lord- Mayor to answer for his making use of such a net. COMMITMENTS. On Wednesday a man was committed to New- gate, charged on the oath of Robert Smith with stealing two guineas and 101. 6J. the property of John Lecruse. The same day a man was committed to the said gaol, charged before Thomas Gilbert, Esq. with burglariously breaking open the dwelling- house of William Masterman, Esq. in the night time, and stealing several silver spoons, several pairs of silk stockings, a pair of pistols, & c. OXFORD BALLOON. On the 12th instant Mr. Sadler, of Oxford, very amply fulfilled his engagements with the public, by ascending in his air- balloon from the Physic- Garden, in the presence of a surprising concourse of people of all ranks; the roads, streets, fields, trees, buildirgs, and towers of the parts adjacent being crowded beyond de- scription. The apparatus occupied the centre of the garden, which, besides the balloon, con- sisted of a large vessel cOnstruCted for the pur- pose, with a number of lesser ones properly fixed, filled with materials for exciting the in- flammable gas, which was conducted to the machine by several large tin tubes. A few minutes before one o'clock ( the bal- loon having been completely filled within the compass of two hours) Mr. Sadler stepped into the car, suspended from the machine by a net- work, and construCted in the form of a boat, when the fastenings being immediately loosed, a most beautiful balloon ascended with such wonderful velocity, that in three minutes Mr. Sadler was enveloped in the clouds, and for a few moments totally disappeared ; yet became visible at three or four several times, the ma- chine still pressing upwards into the atmosphere, but at the same time moving with great rapi- dity before the wind, which blew pretty fresh from the south west. And on this side Ayles- bury, an aperture made in the balloon almost as soon as it was launched, had unfortunately exhausted so much of the inflammable air as to prevent our traveller from pursuing his aerial journey to the distance intended. Nevertheless it may be proper to observe, that our English adventurer is the first person who has been his own architect, engineer, chemist, and projector ;. that he exhibited a wonderful share of genius, intrepidity, and cool resolution ; and that he justly merits the patronage and liberality of a. generous public. In his passage Mr. Sadler crossed Otmoor, Thame, and divers other places, the different currents frequently changing the direction of the machine, notwithstanding which he was not more than seventeen minutes in the passage. but found it necessary to divest himself of his whole apparatus, and therefore had thrown out all his ballast, provisions, and instruments of every kind; and, upon descending near Sir William Let's, had the misfortune to be in- tangled in a tree, afterwards swept the ground, and again rebounded to a considerable distance, till at length he cast anchor upon a hedge, and landed safe upon terra firma, though the balloon was totally demolished. Mr. Sadler got back to Thame about four o'clock, where having taken a little refreshment, and received the congratulations of the inhabi- tants, he set out from thence, and arrived at Oxford last night at seven ; when the populace seized the chaise at the entrance of the town, took off the horses, dragged the carriage through several of the principal streets of this city, and were not content till they had compelled the inhabitants to illuminate their houses. We learn that Mr. Sadler found himself ceedingly wet in passing through the heavy cloud he met with in his ascent, which also floa bottom of his car. TUESDAY, Nov. 16.

LONDON. The appointments of Gen. Sloper amount to sixteen thousand pounds a year, taking his al- lowance as one of the Council into the account. The Commander in Chief, by Mr. Pitt's bill, is always to have a seat in the Council, which in- creases his patronage considerably. The Ge- neral has but one son, who is now 0n the half- pay list as a Captain. He accompanies his father in the quality of Aid de Camp. In the three Dutch regiments which are to be raised by the learned bodies in Holland, admit- tance will be allowed to poor literary men of al- descriptions. Compilers of history, manufactul rers of paragraphs, spiners of poetry, labourers of prose, together with ballad writers and ballad singers, all will find ready pay and good quar ters, by entering into this learned corps. We cannot write with much precision on the numbers that may be found in the provinces, but think, had such an invitation been given by our univer- sities, many thousands of poor rogues might have enlisted with these learned qualifications about them, which would have been of infinite service to the State, as they must then have employed their time in peppering the foe, instead of disgracing the press, and scribbling against the constitution.

The Lord- Mayor has caused notice to be given to the fishermen, that they must take out a Licence to fish with drag- nets, sealed, that shall be full one inch and a quarter in the mesh till the full day of March next, in the waters of Medway and the River Thames, as high as Broadness Point, and no higher, on the for feit- ing both net and fish ; aud that they do not take any smelts of less size than six inches, from eye to the end of the tail, and that no drag- net be brought higher up than Greenhith, on the like ; and all persons found offending in any above to be taken into custody, and before his Lordship. The fair held on Saturday at Kingston upon Thames was the greatest ever known there for horned cattle, sheep, and hogs ; all of which sold at very moderate prices. A great number of sheep of the small Welch breed, sold so cheap as at six, seven, and eight shillings per head. We hear from Chigwell- row, in Essex, that some persons being apprehended for stealing lead from houses, and carried before Bamber Gascoigne, Esq. that magistrate took two days in examining them, by which a gang of more than twelve are discovered, who have lived by felony and deer stealing for upwards of six years past ; and they had arrived to that pitch of impudence, that they stole bacon, hogs, sheep, and bullocks, and killed and dressed them for their own use ; that they have had above an hun- dred deer from the park of Eliab Harvey, Esq. stripped most of the houses in that neighbour- hood of their lead covering, and actually cut down timber trees on the forest, and sold them for their own use. Four are already taken, and we doubt not, by the wanted activity of the same magistrate, the receivers, as well as the thieves, will be brought to justice; the long reign of this gang having been entirely owing to the timidity of the Justices in that division. Last week Mrs Worth, of Cow- cross, was so affected at hearing that her son had received sen- tence to work for seven years at ballast heaving, that she dropped into a chair and instantly ex- pired. Saturday Francis Mione, a Spaniard, and Robert Crozier, quarrelled at a public- house at Shadwell, when the former stabbed the latter quite through the neck with a knife. Mione was committed to Newgate by Robert Smith, Esq. The recovery of Crozier is not expected. On Saturday evening a man much in liquor coming out of a public- house by Millbank, Westminster, missed the footway, fell over the rail into the Thames, and was drowned. Yesterday at St. Margaret's Hill, the prices of hops were, pockets from 4I. 16s. to 5I. t8s. and bags from 3I. 12s. t « jl. Js. per cwt. Same day in Smithfield, the average prices were, Beef 3d. mutton 3 d. veal 4th and pork 3 . per lb. House lambs sold from 24s. to 3s. each. ROBBERIES AND COMMITMENTS. Saturday night all the lead was stripped from the new buildings opposite the Coach and Hor- ses upon the Back Hill Coldbath- fields. Two men, supposed to be the robbers, were pursued by an inhabitant of the neighbourhood, who pro- bably would have secured them, had he not been intercepted by a supposed accomplice. Saturday the shop of Mr. Windsor, butcher in St. John's- lane, was broke open and robbed of meat to the value of about 81. Saturday night, between eleven and twelve o'clock, Mr. Snow, of Featherstone- street, Bun- hill- row, was stopped near the City Road, in Old- street, by three fellows, who robbed him of two guineas and some silver. Saturday evening, as Mr. Seamark, potter, at Nine Elms, was returning from Kingston fair, upon a horse he had purchased there ; the crea- ture fell with him in Wandsworth, whereby he had his leg and his arm broke, and was other- wise so much hurt that there are but little hopes of his recovery. Friday night some villains broke into the house of Mr. Best, watch- maker in Red Lion- street, Clerkenwell, and carried off plate, wear- ing apparel, and other effects, to a considerable amount. Saturday night Robert Hobson was com- mitted for trial by Peter Green, Esq; for break- ing into the house of Mr. Harris, of Chiswell- street, the night before, and stealing property to a considerable amount. Mr. Eskine now rose in reply he Opened with that most excellent eulogium Upon the power of Juries, written by the Late Judge Blackstone. and left in his Commentaries as a most valuable legacy to posterity ; from that celebrated pas- sage, the power of a Jury, to determine the whole matter in issue, was clearly defined and as- serted— This was the great palladium ( said the great and learned Judge) of English Liberty. He then turned back to the early period of the Constitution, and clearly shewed, that for seve- ral reigns after the Norman accession, the whole of every issue, both civil and criminal, was decided entirely by the Jury. Courts of Justice, the manner they now stand, were not then instituted. At the County Courts, the Alderman declared the law, and the She- riffs and subordinate Officers recorded the deter- mination of the Jury, i e proved this fact be- yond contradiction, from a passage in Bracton. He then traced the law authorites, down to the Chief Justice Vaughan, in Bushell's case, whole language he proved to be unequivocally direct, that the power of judging the law and fact, resided with the Jury. Mr. Erskine next turned his attention to the object on made by his learned opponents to his positions, and, after having completely defended them, quoted an infinite number of cases, both civil and criminal, in which the Judges who presided had so far differed from the learn- ed Judge, in the charge now Under considera- tion, that they had particularly recommended the law, the fact, and the tendency of the pub- lication, entirely to the consideration of the Jury. In the famous case of the Seven Bishops, even James the Bigot's Judges, had not only conducted themselvcs in that way, but they ac- tuary gave the Jury the very paper on which the prosecution was founded, to consider of all its parts and its general tendency.—-- Did this correspond with the doctrine, that the Jury were to find the fact only ?

COURT of KING'S BENCH, CAUSE shewn why a new Trial should be granted to the DEAN of St. ASAPH. YESTERDAY came on before Lord Mans- field in the Court of King's Bench, in conse- quence of a rule granted for that purpose by his Lordship, the cause of the Dean of St. Alaph, who had been prosecuted for a libel. His Coun- sel objecting to the mode of conducting that trial, it was now deemed proper to shew cause why a new trial should be allowed. Mr. Judge Buller, who had presided as Judge in the prosecution, made a report of the pro- ceedings which had then taken place. In this report he stated with brevity and precision what happened, the evidence brought in support of the indictment, and the Jury's verdict, which was guilty of publishing only. The Judge, desi- rous of rendering this trial decisive, objected to the manner in which the verdict was found, and told the Jury they ought to have found, whe- ther the matter on which they gave sentence was criminal or not. To this Mr. Erskine objected, and said, that the verdict ought to be recorded as given in. The objections made to his charge were two, which he considered at some length, in order that the Court might see the ground on which his conduct proceeded- He disclaimed having given any opinion concerning the nature of the publication in question; He only wished to have got such a verdict, as, in his opinion, was warranted by the evidence before the Court. Mr. Bearcroft then rose for the prosecutor. He thought his situation rather a disagreeable one; but it was his duty to bring forward such arguments as he thought the cause in which he was employed required. He would, however, set out with a very serious intention of doing justice to the question before the Court, to the rights of Juries, to the laws of England, to the public, and to the parties concerned in the cause at issue. He contested with his usual inge- nuity the several propositions which had been laid down by Mr. Erskine, when he moved for the rule. He especially attacked the second, which was, that no act which the law in its gene- ral theory holds to be criminal, constitutes in itself a crime. abstracted from the mischieivous intention of the actor ; and that the intention when tt becomes a legal inference of legal reason from a fact or facts established, may and ought to be collected by the Jury with the Judge's assistance. Because the act charg- ed, though established as a fact in a trial on the general issue, does not necessarily and unavoidably establish the criminal intention by any abstract con- clusion of law ; the establishment of the fact being still no more than full evidence of the crime, but not the crime itself, unless the Jury render it so them- selves, by referring it voluntarily to the Court by special verdict. In his opinion, the Jury had only to do With the fact, and merely to judge and to pronounce ort its efFects or operations. He deemed Juries the guardians of the public, the interests of which they were bound to protect against all opposition or encroachment. The mo- ment therefore the public was injured, the busi- ness of a Jury who were to decide on that fact was without regard to the intention of the agent, to redress that injury. Nor, as he conceived, was the advertisement which had accompanied the publication, any vindication of if, as it would not be pleaded as any compensation whatever for the various bad consequences which might accrue from such a publication. the learned Counsel went through all the other propositions in near- ly the same manner. He Was followed by Mr. Cooper, who stated the question clearly, and whose arguments were pertinent, and urged with simplicity and ardour. Judge Buller, in his opinion, had the greatest law authorities in this country for the charge he had given on the subject. He said, cases in point were endless. For a great many years, six- and- twenty of which he was forty to add were within his own experience, the practice had heen uniform. All the Judges who had presided in his Majesty's Courts had held the same lan- guage to juries on every similar occasion. Mr. Lyster adopted the same arguments in substance, which had been so ably and copiously urged by the Counsel who preceded him. The Court, howeyer, was so extremely crouded and noisy, and he spoke in so low a key, that we could not with any degree of accuracy gather the meaning of what he said. Mr. Bower thought much of the confusion which adhered to the subject had arisen from not sufficiently considering the meaning of the Word intention. He explained this term in its legal and technical signification, and applied his re- marks to the case under consideration with much elegance and perspicuity. He compared the case of the public and that of an individual as suffering through ignorance or inattention. And he insisted that reparation was due from one to another in both, notwithdanding it might have been effected without intention or design. He would not enter into a competition with his learned friend Mr. Erskine, to whose superior abilities he was always ready to bow; but he could not help lamenting his own want of com- prehension, in viewing the same object in a light so different from him. This happened in a quo- tation from the decision in the case of the King against Woodfall, which Mr. Erskine said most luminously expressed his sentiment That when a man publishes a libel, and has nothing to say for himself, no explanation or exculpation, a criminal intention need not be proved It is an inference of common sense, not of law. The report here referred to struck him in a quite different light. But that he would rather im- pute to his own inferior judgment than to any misconception in his learned friend. He adverted to the case of the Bishops, who in the beginning of the civil wars had been nobly libe- rated by a Jury who took upon them to judge of the law as well as the fact. Hs would not in- vestigate their verdict. He regarded it with re- verence, as an instance of the goodness of Provi- dence, in rescuing the kingdom by that means from despotic government; and, without pre tending to enquire into the legality of such an action, he would hope, whenever this country should again be in extraordinary danger, means of an extraordinary nature would also be adopted, and sanctified by Providence, for effecting the same important end. He begged the Court and the public would consider the consequences which must necessarily result from the doctrine which a new trial would certainly establish No two counties would agree in what was law, perhaps, concerning any given libel. Mid- dlesex would probably have one opinion, and the county of York another; and while a person was here sentenced to be put en the pillory for writing or publishing a seditions libel, he might in some patriotic place be applauded as the saviour of his country After a very elegant and pointed speech of near an hour in length, he apologized for having consumed so much time, and declared his only object was to deliver his apprehension of the law in question with freedom and candour. Mr. Manly said also a few words, and cited a case which none of the gentlemen preceding him had mentioned. In the late case of the King against Col. Gor- don, for a murder committed in a duel, Baron Eyre first instructed the Jury as to the law, and then left them to find the whole matter in issue. In the present instance, the Jury were directed to find the facts only, and leave the law to the Judge, who was by that means to appoint the punish- ment commensurate to the supposed offence, without the knowledge or interference of the Jury, and without any appeal. Suppose, said Mr. Erskine, that this idea was carried still further, and the same practices by which the immortal Sydney fell a victim, were again re- vived ; the Jury, as in that instancc, find the fact, and apply the innuendos, • nd the Court de- termined, as in his case, that the publication amounts to High Treason. This actually strikes at the life of the subject, without being passed upon by a Jury of his equals. The doctrine Was at once horrid and monstrous. From the present temper of the times, and the independent spirit of the Bench, there was, he firmly believed, at present, no dinger, but yet the case was possible, and should be guarded against. He here made an allusion to the wisdom and good- ness of Providence, in raising up almost in every age so many great and good men, who had defended the laws and liberties of their country. It was by such exertions as Providence had by its general dispensations placed in one person, that the freedom of our native country was at all times to be defended. Mr. Erskine next adverted to the words, in which the verdict was conceived—" Guilty of « • publishing, but whether a Libel, the Jury do not find"— Where then was the guilt ?— No fact of criminal intention was established by the verdict— How then guilty ? He contended that the verdict was in itself a mere nullity. If it conveyed any thing, it was a gross and manifeft contradiction. This alone ought to entitle his client to a new trial, Surely, said he, no danger can arise to the Constitution, from entrusting the dearest rights of Englishmen to the de- cision of their country, by a Jury of Gentlemen whose hereditary possessions are at least as strong a pledge to their fellow citizens, as ever the Re- verend Judges upon the Bench, who enjoyed their situation during life, without a possibility of their descending to their posterity. These were his principles, and they would attend him to the grave. Mr. Bower's observations on Providence af- forded him an opportunity of making very merry with that gentleman, who, he said, spoke on this occasion rather like a priest than a lawyer. In the conclusion of his speech he was anxious to be understood as meaning nothing personally disrespectful, especially to the Judge on whole charge to the Jury at Shrewsbury he had thus freely commented. His motive was an inviola- ble attachment to the constitution of his country, and to the invaluable blessings which it secured to Britons. He would therefore rest the cause on this ground, and hoped his Lordship would see cause to grant a new trial. Mr. Walsh read an elaborate composition on the same side, which finished the pleadings. These lasted from ten in morning till four in the afternoon. The above, therefore, is only a very imperfect sketch of what they contained. Lord Mansfied said, " We are all of one opinion, but is is now too late to deliver it, as We cannot see to read our notes.'' The case Was therefore adjourned. The general average prices of corn and grain as delivered to the Lord Mayor, Recorder, and Aldermen of London, from June 26, to October 6, is, . For the Whitehall Evening- Post. To the Right Hon. WILLIAM PITT. SIR, WELL knowing the necessity of the times will next year require fresh taxes, I have made it my business frequently to sound my neighbours and others upon the subject ; and now, as I am enabled, I will mention to you a new tax or two, and an alteration in a late tax, which Would be received by them not only with a ready will, but with a perfect good humour. And the first I shall recommend is a yearly tax of ten shillings upon every bachelor, to com- mence from the time off his being 30 years of age until he arrives at 60. I am competent to say, this tax, even though it should not raise a very great sum, would be well received, and certainly would cause a great deal of innocent mirth. And as it is most likely some years hence may produce more wars, his Majesty, in consequencc of this tax, ( should it promote ma- trimony) would in time have the satisfaction of finding himself more plentifully stocked with fit subjects to make soldiers and sailors of than otherwise be would have been. But should Bachelors think themselves better able to pay ten shillings annually than to maintain a wife, this tax would raise a great sum : if they should not,' it would raise a less, but his Majesty's sub- ject's would be increased thereby And as there are more Bachelors among the rich than among the poor, this tax might more properly be styled a tax upon the rich than upon the poor. The next tax I would mention is a tax upon all sorts of nets, wire, powder and shot; and this is a tax I would strongly recommend in the place of that late levelling one, commonly called the Two Guinea Licence Act, for killing game, & e. because I apprehend it would raise more money, would be mere efficient in preventing poaching, and in reality would not be half fo partial for now the punishment inflicted by law upon the unqualified person for killing game, remains as it did, the penalty being only five pounds: Whereas the qualified person, ( if he may now be so called) not, having taken out his1 licence for killing game, & c. is liable, upon default, to the penalty of fifty pounds ; though, to speak the truth, it is by no means an easy matter to come at a man's qualification, that is, to know if he is a qualified man or not ; for as this knowledge must be had through the infor- mation of more persons than one, they may not all be of the same mind.'; and if that should be the case, they will withhold the information ne- cessary to a proseCution. Without any offence, I may be allowed to say this is a partial tax, and ill judged; for there are many unqualified per- sons better able to pay fifty pounds than some qualified persons are to pay five, which is in a great measure owing to the melancholy circum- stance of the present unequal weight of taxes. I foresee, Sir, should the above- mentioned Li- cence- Act for killing game, & c. not be repealed, it will next sporting season be the chief game in every sportsman's ' company, whether they be qualified or unqualified. ' Having now done with a tax upon nets, & c. I shall beg leave to call your attention to another tax, which, as it in a great measure respects game, may be said to have some connexion with the former. It is not, Sir, many weeks since a newspaper informed me that a tax upon dogs was determined upon. Now, though I should heartily welcome a tax upon dogs, I am well, assured an impost or one pound upon every dog would be a tax which would defeat itfelf, and Consequently would not raise half the Ann a more moderate tax would. Besides, so heavy a tax would go a great way towards extirpating the race of those useful animals. Upon every dog then I would recommend a tax of five shil- lings only, and this should be without any ex- ceptions ; for if a man keeps a pack of hounds, let him be taxed according to the number of dogs he hunts, and then an opening will not be left for evasion. It is not however the consider- able sum Government would receive, by this tax that should recommend it,, but the great advantages which will arise to the Public from' it. The alarming number of dogs being dimi- nished, mad dogs will seldom make their ap- pearance to bite us, and consquently we shall not so often experience that great distress of mind, which an idea of canine madness must ever occasion in us. Sir, there is scarcely a poor person in my parish, and in the neighbouring villages, who does not keep a dog, and some of them two and even three ; and these dogs ( with shame ve it spoken) eat the children's meat, and live as the family lives. Would you ask me what thete dogs are kept for ? 1 could give you no reasons, unless to bite their betters as they pass by their houses, or to catch hold of your horse's heel and throw you down, or to be used in poaching, or on a Sunday to disturb a congregation with their amours; for as to the old stale plea of their dogs guarding their pro- perty— What great matters have these poor people to guard ? Are they not likely, in ne- Cessitous times, to turn thieves to maintain their dogs ? What have those, persons to guard espe- cially, who come with their dogs to church every week to receive collections ? What have they to lose that dogs could secure to them ? or that can be put in competition with the meagre looks of their hungry children ? or that can make you amends for a mortification in your leg ? or a broken neck ? or- an indecent interruption of your devotion in the House of God? Nothing that I know of.— Still these people must have their dogs if it were only to lie upon their clothes in the field, to give notice when the farmer, their master, is coming, that they may not be surprised doing nothing. You will, last of all, Sir, permit me to throw in a hint respecting the Horse Tax. For the sake of impartiality and the public quiet, you will doubtless propose an amendment of the said tax— Make it then a horse poll- tax of one shil- ling. I will not say it would raise more money 1 than the present Horse Tax ( 1 believe it would raise nearly as much), but it would be more equal and less offensive, and a tax which could not be evaded. It is extremely hard ( is it not cruel ?) that a poor farmer, perhaps with a fa- mily, who keeps only one horse, should for that horse pay an annual tax of ten shillings; when his rich neighbour, who keeps forty, or fifty, of sixty horses, enters but one, and pays for n0 more ? I have now, Sir, laid before you some objects of taxation and alteration, which, for the reasons stated, will meet, I hope, not only with your support, but with that of the majority of both Houses of Parliament. They have, I can af- firm, the approbation of the majority of people without those walls ; aad since more money must soon be raised for the exigencies of the I State ( not that you have been the cause of your country's distress far from it, we must look back), it becomes every Minister at least to con- sult the inclination of those upon whose property the money is to be raised. ; Every honest and prudent Minister will desire it ; and had not you, Sir, upon more occasions than one, have shewn a disposition to receive information ( so unlike modern Ministers) upon matters of con- sequence, I should have spared myself the trouble of writing, and you the trouble of read- ing. I am, Sir, Your humble servant, PRO PATRIA. the word SACRED, is to be set up in its stead, it is submitted to the consideration of the noble Directors, whether, after the words Conducted by JOAH BATES, Esq; there might not, with propriety be added, Assisted by Dr. Benjamin Cooke, Tho.

This day arrived the Mails from Holland and Flanders. Hague, Nov. 12. We now have had authen- tic intelligence concerning the pretended attack on Fort Lillo. The truth if, that some inun- dations were made by way of precaution round the Forts Frederick Henry, Kruischans, Lillo, and Lieskensboek. It is rule that two or three Austrians made a pretence of opposing breaking down the Dykes, near Kruischans, and that the The case of the Sub- Directors peculiarly de- serves attention. As some recompence for their extraordinary expence of time and trouble, a promise is said to have been made that they should receive the honorary mark of a gold medal, while the other performers were to have had only silver ones ; in this, how- ever, they have been disappointed, and were ob- liged to sit down contented with silver medals, though they surely had a claim in equity and justice, that some distinction should have been paid them. Indeed, who among mankind can be expected to waste their time and trouble, when neither impelled by duty, prompted by honour, nor assured by profit ? Extract of a Letter from Guernsey, Oct. 18. " Our chief study in this place is to construct balloons to carry large quantities of gin and brandy to different smuggling ports in England, which I believe we shall bring to perfection ; and it is the general opinion of the people here, it will render that trade more profitable than ever. If Government, don't fit out some machine or balloon co intercept us, our trade with the En- glish will flourish to a surprising rate." Extract of a Letter from Portsmouth, Nov. r 5. " Arrived this morning the Tartar storeship from the East- Indies. When this ship left the Cape two months since, the Ganges East- India- man was there preparing to sail for England.

LONDON. The Emperor hath certainly ordered 8oooo men to march from Hungary, Moravia, Bohe- mia, and other parts of his dominions towards the Netherlands. Extract of a Letter from Amsterdam, Nov. 5. " The die is now thrown, and the event of war is to prove, whether the Scheld is to be open or not.— We really do believe, that the Emperor would have gained his point more easi- ly by negociating, than by the point of the sword. His dominions are extended, and require larger bodies of troops on the frontiers. This country is compact, and of small extent, and easily de- fended by its situation ; add to that, that our fortifications towards Brabant are some of the best in Europe ; nor do we believe that the Em- peror will be able to bring a force sufficiently strong to besiege any of them, and at the same time to keep an army to cover the siege, with- out which he may be disappointed.—— The people here are acting wiih great spirit, and seem determined not t0 yield in any thing to their powerful enemy. Tho' they have given overall hopes of assistance. from their Gallic friends, yet they have hopes from Germany, where they have engaged to take 10,000 Hes- sians into their pay. We most ardently wish they may beat off the powerful invader, and still continue to enjoy the privileges they dearly earned in former ages. " We forsee no bad effect the present war can have upon our Exchange." Extract of a Letter from Brussells, Nov. 9. I ' " We hear of several little skirmishes 0n the borders of Zutphen, between the troops of his Imperial Majesty and those of the Republic of Holland ; particularly- in the neighbourhood of Eyderville, where the Dutch were on the eve of breaking their dykes, and laying the whole country under water; but were prevented by our forces taking possession of their posts thus are hostilities commenced, and Heaven knows when or where they will end." Extract of a Letter from Ostend, Nov. 10. On the 7th instant two waggons arrived here with cannon, & c. from Antwerp; they came down the Canals as far as Bruges, when they were put into carriages, which have drawn them hither. The waggons have returned for more, as this city is to be completely fortified, by order of the Emperor." It is reputed that Lord Temple is about to be created Duke of Buckingham, and made first Lord of the Treasury. As the Tablet fixed up in Westminster- Abbey over Mr. Handel's Monument,. by the noble Directors of his late Commemoration, is to be taken down, and at the suggestion of the Bishop of Rochester, a new one, with the addition of Master extraordinary of the High Court of Chancery. John Farr Abbot, of the Inner Temple. Esq; who has been many years an officer in the Court of King's Bench, is appointed Clerk of the Rules in that Court, m the room of Thomas Cooper, Esq; deceased. About nine o'clock on Tuesday evening, a most atrocious murder was committed, a little to the Eastward of the Old Toll- bar, in the Gallow- gate, Glasgow. Thomas Morton, stocking- maker, was at work, two or three others being in the shop with him. Some unknown person discharged a gun, which had been loaded with small shot and two balls, in through the win- dow, which entered Morton's throat a little under the left ear, went through it, and in- stantly killed him. Morton was concerned in circulating the forged notes on the Aberdeen Bank with William Steven, junior, in Novem- ber last at Paisley, but escaped. Some tim' 6 m September Morton surrendered himself, with a view of being evidence at Steven's trial last cir- cuit ; but Steven- having escaped from prison, Morton- wis allowed te follow his business till he was thus, cruelly murdered. The gun had been so strongly charged, that two balls penetrated the door of the shop, and entered the adjoining kitchen. On Friday last the following melancholy ac-. cident happened near Kippen: Two men were n a cart, which they driving too furiously, the horse, instead of keeping the right road, went ever a precipice, by which one of them was killed on the spot, and the life of the other is despaired of. Sunday night, between nine and ten o'clock, Mr. Shambrook, biscuit- baker, near the church at Wapping, was stopped in Wellclose- square by two villains, one of them having a cutlass, and the other a short bludgeon, who robbed him of a guinea and some silver.
