Whitehall, July 13. The King has been pleafed to confer on Morton Eden, Efq. his Majefty's Envoy Extraordinary to the Court of Drefden, the additional chara£ lerof his Ma- jefiy's Minifler Plenipotentiary at that Court.

The eight Englifh men of war now equipping, and def- tmed for the Baltic, will be ready to go to Spithead' in two or three days. The Stadtholder is gone to the Texel to pre- pare five fhips of the line to join the Englilli fquadron. It will depend on the Danes, whether they fhall come tp blows.. P- eace or war depends at this moment on a ( lender thread. The draught upon the Caiffe d'Efcompte in Paris was fuch, in confequence of the riots, that it was thought impoffible to continue to pay : one houfe in London received 130,0001. from France, to be placed in our funds. The public funds on Wednefday laft felt a rapidity in their life almoft unequalled in the times of peace, having rifen from the preceding day almoft tzao per cent. The above influx is partly occasioned by remittances frc- n France, Holland, and other parts of the Continent, which the prefent convulfed flate of France has rendered neceffary for the fafety of individuals. ExtraB of a letterfrom Quebec, June 9. The winter has been uncojnmonly fevere, and provi- fions extravagantly high, bread in particular. Flour now fells for 30s. per cwt. though its ufual price is from 8s. 4d. to 9s. It is a known faft, that many perfons have perifhed up the fettlements about Montreal, where its fcarcity has been rather mpre felt than here; and many people have been reduced to the greateft diftrefs from the price of flour being raifed fo high. The profpea has been. truly alarming, and all for want of a timely embargo being laid on the exporta- tion." An account was prefented of the expences attending the trial of Mr. Haftings, on Wrednefday in the Houfe of Com- mons, which had accrued fince the delivery of the laft ac- count. It amounted to 20,3121 The report of the Tobacco Bill was brought up, and Sir Watkin Lewis urged the reception of a claufe which tended to grant a trial by jury to thofe tobacco manufafturers, who might confider themfelves as aggrieved by the Commiffioners of Excife in the execution of any of the provifions of this bill. The claufe, he faid, was not only in itfelf expedient, inafmuch as it would relieve the manufaflurers in queftion, but would alf'o be of fervice in a more extenfive point of view, as laying the foundation of a general plan for allowing a trial by jury to any perfons, whofe department of bufinels was under the regulation of the excife, provided they could make out fair allegations of grievance.— Upon a divifion it was negatived. Mr. Fox rofe to deliver his fentimcnts on the operation of the bill. He obferved, that much undeferved odium had ' been thrown on Sir Robert Walpole : he thought him a wife Minifter, and one yho in general a£ led for the good of his country. In one meafure, the cxtenfion of the Excife Laws, he thought him ill advifed; in the giving up that fcheme he thought him well advifed. He contended, that the Excife Laws had been more extended in the prefent Ad- miniftration, than in any preceding. The fir It attempt was to attach on the Fuflian Manufaftory the Excife Laws that proved abortive. The next was to'lay the Wine Trade un- der the Excife; which was unhappily done. It is now in- tended to put the Tobacconills under the Excife. So great a friend was he to the Conflitution, fo great an enemy to the Excife, that were this Tobacco regulation to produce an addition to the Revenue of half a million, he would give his negative tp it. However old fafhioned thefe notions might be, of " Liberty, Property, and no Excife," he fhould neverthelefs adopt them. He faid, it was affcrted by fome, that the attachment of the Excife on the Tobacco trade will increafe it. Others deny this affertion, and (" ay it will decreafeit. Which was right, he knew not. He knew which he wifhed might be right, - becaufe if the meafure fucceeds, all oppofition to fu- ture fchemes of this fort will he fruitlefs and nugatory. He would now confider to what clafs of men this boafte'd Trial by Jury was attached: not to the army and navy, it was well known; not to the manufa£ turers and merchants, becaufe they were under the Excife Laws; hut to the idle alone. By the idle, he did not mean thofe w ho were ufelefs to the community; but to the idle, when compared with the iu- duftrious and commercial part of the community. Wh'eij the Excife was attempted to be attached to Cyder and Perry, it was given up becaufe it would be entering the houfe of a private gentleman. Why a private gentleman's houfe fhould be confidered as his caftle, and the trader's ( hould not be, he could not fee. It is faid, Do you innovate on the Excife Laws? No; he contended that thofe were the innovators who extended them.—— There were many who were in bu- finefs to which the Excife Laws have been attached for many" years; they entered on bulinefs with this knowlecjge; hit that perfons who entered on the Tobacco trade without think- ing of the Excife Laws being attached to them, ( liould now be put under them, was extremely hard. There is ( faid he) hut one alternative further— you muft continue your bufinels under ihefe Excife laws, and content yourfelves wilh being deprived of your birth- rights as Eng'lifhmen, or you may give up your bufinefs, and go into oilier employment. Alas! this was a hard alternative, indeed! For Godls fake, if pcrfons have fo much veneration for the Excife Laws, be- caufe they have fubfifted for a long while,' let' them have a greater veneration'for the Condition, which has fuhfifted longer. He was an enemy to public clamour; but he thought it was not to the credit of the people, that they faw, without repining, the encroachment upon their liberties. It * ( Ijewed that they were fel fifh, and even dilhoneft— becaufe as Jong as the evil is kept from their door, they care not if it enters the houl'e of their neighbours. While furrounding nations are admiring our Liberties, we are regardlefs of them — and while other kingdoms are driving for Freedom, we are 1 content to fee our? gradually dying away. He would not I have it fuppofed that he courted popularity by fpeaking on the luhjeft, becaufe he wasforry to fee fo little annexed to it. Neverthelefs, he fhould always give his hesrty ogpofition ti> any exicnfion of the Excife Laws. The bill was ordered to be engrolfjd. Mr. Pulteney made his promifed motion relative to con- tefted elections; but, after a fhort debate, he withdrew it. A very extraordinary feizure was made laft week on hoard a Wefi- Indiaman in the river. The Captain having a large party to dine with him, ordered all his china 10 be fent 011. board. It was of confiderable value, and had been fixty years in the family. Tbe moment dinner was pver, it was packed up carefully in hampers, and carried on deck, to be lent on fhore, when the officers feizeel it according to a late aft of Parliament, which makes all above a certain quantity found on board liable to feizure. The officers took the ham- pers to the Cuftom- lioufe, and the Captain has laid his cafe before the Commilfioners, dating the length of time tFie The King has alfo been pleafed to appoint Alexander china had been in his family, and projoGfig to prove tb4t f « ' i Stratlon, Efq. to be his MajeQy's Sscrstary pf Legation at' by ths ilrangelj teftimopy. • • k Sinking inflance of tht font of imagination.^- Ttom Lyd- ford- bjidgev; in Devonfhire, the view is truly tremendous: the depth is aft'oniftiing; the rugged rocks on both fides, as one looks down, in fome places almoft join, fo narrow is the channel; their broken abruptnefs and wild irregularity, and the pcrturbetl flream roaring in the profundity, as if it had even vet to force its way through the rocky impediments be- low, give a ftrong reprcfentation of the terrible and fublime; and the picture is confiderably heightened by the following authentic anecdote.— A commercial rider, who happened to be benighted on the road near to that place, at a time that the bridge had been broken down by a torrent, rode fo hard to gain the town, that his horfe almoft imperceptibly took the leap, and completely cleared the chafm that the flood had left. Upon viewing the place next morning, his fenfibility was lo fhaken by the danger he had efcaped, that the effeft was as unfortunate 10 him as if the efcape had never been experien- ced— he dropped down and expired. Milton's Will.— The Laureate having an intention of pub- lilhing fome obfervations on the works of Milton, and adding fome anecdotes of his life, has applied to the gentlemen of DoQors- Commons to fearch for his will, and his will they havefound. It bears date 1670, and in 1674 he died. In- trodufiory to one of the legacies is the following Angular re- mark: " Unto my daughter next mentioned, I Ihould have bequeathed more, but flie negle£ ted me when I was blind, andforfookme inmyoldage; I therefore, & c. Yefterday John Gilbert was brought before William Ad- dington, Efq. fitting Magiftrate, at Bow- ftreet, charged with putting off bad filver, but for the want of fuflicient evidence was difcharged. He made an affidavit before the above Ma- giftrate, that he was tried for a like offence in the Old Bailey in January 1784, was found guilty, and fentenced to one yeai'simprifonment in Newgate; that a woman by the name of Ann Wilfon applied to him foon after, and faid, if he could procure twenty guineas, the could procure him a free pardon; he accordingly, by fome means, got the money, » hich he depofited in a perfon's hands; that fhe got his par- don and received the fum, and of courfe he was releafed. This woman is a well known character, has for fome years made a point of going to Newgate, and making inquiry if any perfon wanted to get a free pardon, but her terms were twenty guineas, which ( he took care always to have lodged in fome per fon's hands ( he approved of, and has obtained par- dons for many. It is well known ( he had got full 200I. a year by this mode of proceeding. She has been indifted for fhop- lifting, but discharged for want of evidence. She now Hands indifled for obtaining money under falfc pretences, and the principal evidence againft her is a perfon high in the law. On Saturday fe'nnight died, in Weftmoreland, Mr. Cow- ard, cf Arnfide Caftle, at the age of 116 years. He never ufed fpeflacles. The 4th inft. died, at Carlew, in Ireland, Mr. Jonathan Carleton, one of the people called Quakers. His wife, with whom he had lived upwards of 40 years in the utmoft conjugal felicity, died the preceding day. It had been their mutual and frequent with, that one fhould not furvive the other. A ftone coffin has been difcovered under the old wall of Oxford Caftle, nearly contiguous to the Great Tower, and within about three feet of the furface. In this coffin was a complete human ( keleton, with this remarkable circumftance, that the ( kull was placed upon the bones of the feet. The inlide of the coffin was formed fomewhat in the fhape of a man's body and neck only; from whence it may be fairly conjeftured, that the head had been fevered from the trunk before interment. WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY'S POSTS. From the LONDON GAZETTE, July 21. Paris, July 17. ON Sunday laft, on receiving the news of the difmifTion of M. Necker, and a body of troops entering this city, the populace began to arm themfelves, and were immediately joined by the French Guards. In the evening a ( light ( kirmilh happened in the Place de Louis XV. in which two dragoons of the Due de Choifeul's Regiment were killed, and two wonnded. After which all the troops left the Capital. Very early on Monday moming, the populace forced the Convent of St. Lazare, in which, befides a confiderable quantity of corn, were found arms and ammunition, fuppof- ed to have been conveyed thither, as a place of lecurity, at different times, fromthe arfenal. The Bourgeoifie came to the refolution of raifing a militia of forty- eight thoufand men. A general confternation prevailed throughout the town. All the ( hops were ( hut; all public and private employments at a ftand, and fcarcely a perfon to be feen in the ftteets, ex- cept the armed burghers, who afted as a temporary police for the proteflion of private property, to re- place the efta- blilhed one, which had no longer any influence. On Tuefday morning the Hofpital of Invalids was fum- moned to furrender, and was taken pofleflion of, after a flight refiHance. All the cannon, fmall arms and ammunition were immediately feized upon, and every one who chofe to arm himfelf was fupplied with what was neceflary. The cannon was diftributed in different parts of the town. In the evening a detachment, with two pieces of cannon, went to the Baftile, to demand the ammunition depofited there. A flag of truce had been fent before them, which was an- fwered from within : but neverthelefs the Governor ( the Marquis de Launay) ordered the guard to fire, and feveral were killed. The populace, enraged at this proceeding, ruffled forward to the aflault, when the Governor agreed to admit a certain number, on condition that they fliould not commit any violence. A detachment of about forty ac- cordingly palled the draw- bridge, which was inftantly drawn up, and the whole party maffacred. This breach of faith, aggravated by fo glaring an inftance of inhumanity, naturally excited a fpirit of revenge and tumult not to be appeafed. A breach was foon made in the gate, and the fortrels furrender- ed. The Governor, the principal gunner, the gaoler, and two old invalids, who had been noticed as being morea& ive than the reft, were feized, and carried before the Council af- fembled at the Hotel de Ville, by whom the Marquis de Launay was fentenced to be beheaded, which was according- ly put in execution at the place de Greve, and the other pri- foners were alfo put to death. The Prevot des Marchands met with a fimilar fate, being fufpefled of betraying the citizens; and the heads of thefe perfons were fixed on pikes, and carried round the city. In the courfe of the fame evening, the whole ef the Gardes Francoifes joined the Bourgeoifie, with all their can- n, arms, and ammunition. Not more than four or five prifoners were found in the Baftile. On Wednefday laft the King repaired to the Affembly of the States General at Veriailles, accompanied only by Monfieur and the Count d'Artois, and addrefled the States in a fpeech, in which his Majefly exhorted them to provide the means of reftoring peace and tranquillity, and to affift him in fecuring the welfare of the State; and his Majefty acquainted them, that relying on the affe& ion and fidelity of his fubjefls, he had ordered the troops to retire to a cer- tain diftance from Paris and Verfailles. This fpeech was received with univerfal applaufe, and his _ A letter from Rouen, in Normandy, received yeflerday, gives advice of a dreadful affray in that city on Sunday fe'nnight, in which feveral lives were loft, and various out- rages committed. The tumult had not fubfided when the letter was fent off. The Swifs Cantons have fent orders to their troops, in the fervice of France, not to fire on the people, as their treaty ftipulates that they ( hall be employed folely in cafe of foregn invafion. The number of French families, whom, the prefent com- motions in their own country have forced to take refuge in this, is almoft incredible. Lord Mazarine, an Irifh nobleman, was freed from the Hotel de la Force, by the infurreffion in France. He has chofen to be confined there upwards of twenty years for, debt, though he is in poffeffion of a very conGderable eftate, and other property.— He has efcaped into this kingdom. The Ruffian Rear Admiral Count de Wainowitfch keeps up a conftant alarm on a great extent of the Turkifti coaft.— In the laft difpatches fent home by that officer, and dated from Sebaftopolls, he fays, that having refolved to cruize with 18 ( hips of war off the coaft of Romelia, near the mouth of the Danube, he took fome troops on board, and foon arrived at the deftined ftation. Between the 29th of April and the 9th of May, he took four Turkifti ( hips, and deftroy- ed eight. On the 2d. of May, he landed his troops near Karakarman, attacked a confiderable body of the enemy, and drove them from their redoubts. The ( hips of war then drew near the town, and kept up fo well directed a fire upon it, that they foon almoft totally deftroyed it. A Privy Council is appointed to meet to- morrow, at the Cock- pit, on various matters from the ifland Jerfev, particu- larly on the propofitions for eftabliffiing trials by Juries there, fubmitted to the confideration of the Lords of his Majefty moft Honourable Privy Council. His Majefty continues in the beft ftate of health, and the higheft fpirits, at Weymouth. On Saturday he went, for the firft time, accompanied by the Princelfes, on board the Magnificent and Hebe ( hips of war. Their Majefties, with the Royal Family, are to be at Ply. mouth to- morrow ; they are to be lodged at Mount Edge- cumbe, the feat of the Right Hon. Lord Edgecumbe. An infpeflion into the fortifications, & c. will be the firft objeft of their Majefties vifit. The naval review will take place afterwards. Every pre- paration is made to render the fpeftacle as grand and in terefting as poflible. The Duke of Cumberland is ill of the mealies, but not dangeroufly. The Lord Lieutenant of Ireland has received much benefit from the Bath waters, and returns to Ireland very ( hortly. It is the confident affertion of the friends of Government, that a Mint will be eftabliffied in Ireland next feflion, or at leaft fuch a reform in the fpecie as mult aid the defired pur- pofes ot trade and commerce. Some capital linen- drapers in London declare, that the Glafgow and Manchefter people have made fuch a progrefs in the muffin branch, that if an additional duty of only ten per cent, was laid on India muflins, it would fecure the home market to the Britifh entirely. The tonnage of Britifh ( hipping is calculated to be 1,300,000— the number of our marines upwards of 107,000. We are forry to hear that the venerable Earl of Mansfield, after an interval of nine months returning health, is again relapfed.

Mr. Secretary Grenvillc brought in a bill for better regulat- ing the exportation and importation of wheat, & c. & c. which was read a firft time, and ordered to be read a fecond time to- morrow. Mr. Rofe informed the Houfe,[ that ( ince the bill had been brought in for allowing a drawback on teas exported to Guernfey, Jcrfev, and other places on the Continent of Eu- rope, the merchants trading to Africa had applied for the fame regulation to be extended to teas exported to Africa; and as he faw no objection to the extenfion, he moved that the Houfe Ihould immediately refolve itfelf into a Committee to confider of allowing the faid drawback. The Bill for allowing a drawback on all teas exported to Guernfey, Jerfey, and other places on the Continent of Europe, was read a third time. Mr. Rofe brought up the claufe for allowing the fame drawback on teas exported to Africa. The claufe was read a firft and fecond time, and incorpo- rated in the bill, which was immediately paffed to the Lords. The Bill for levying a duty on foreign cocoa nuts import- ed, and for allowing the exportation of duty- free goods from Southampton to Cowes, without bonds or cockets, was read a third time and paffed. Mr. Burgefs brought up the Report of the Committee on the Debtor and Creditors Bill, which was agreed to. Mr. Burgefs then dated, that he had to propofe fome other alterations, which he was of opinion would make the Bill as perfeS as one of fuch a nature could be; he ( hould therefore move to have it recommitted, and afterwards to have it printed; and, as many gentlemen moft acquainted with a Bill of the prefent kind, would neceffarily be abfent on the Circuits, he would not propofe to go further with his Bill in the prefent Seflion, but let it ftand over to the next. The Houfe then went into a Committee, Sir William Dolben in the Chair; the alterations were made, and on the Houfe being returned, the Report was received. HOUSE OF COMMONS. FRIDAY, July 17. The bill for appointing Commiflioncrs to examine farther into the claims of the American Loyalrfts, was read a firft time, and ordered to be read a fecond time lo- morrow. The order of the day being moved for the third reading of the Tobacco Bill, Mr. Rofe faid, as there had been fome difference of opi- nion relative to the exaflion of a certain fum for warehoufe rent, for all tobacco which might be in the King's warehoufes for a larger period than eighteen months, he had prepared a claufe - with blanks, which might be filled up in a Committee, in order to obviate any objeflion which might arife on the point of order. The Speaker, from the chair, faid, that though he did not confider the claufe either as a tax or as a pecuniary pe nalty, he thought the fafeft way would be for the Houfe to commit the claufe. The Houfe then went into a Committee, and the blanks were filled up. By this claufe, fixpence for every hogftiead or package of tobacco flored in the King's warehoufes, is to be paid for every week beyond the period of eighteen months The report was immediately received, and the claufe was ad- ded to the bill. The queftion being put that the bill do pafs, The Marquisof Graham moved to withdraw the queftion, in order that a new claufe might be brought up. This was agreed to, and Mr. Rofe read a claufe, the object of which is to permit the manufaflurers to ftove their fnuffs at the mills, under cer- tain conditions and reftriftions.— This claufe was added to the bill by way of rider.

The army, in purfuance of the King's orders, retired to Seve early on Wednefday morning, leaving their camp equi- page behind them. The Marquis de la Fayette has been appointed Commander ' hey were believed, and the Chriftians were lent in chains to Morocco. When there, the Emperor feemed at firft in- clined to proceed with torrible juftice: for Mr. Layton and his party having offered to prove the falfehood of the Arab's { lory, by witneffes, that the one woman's arm had been brok- en fix months before by an ox; that the other hod loft her teeth — twenty years ago through old age, and that neither the one nor the other, aBually at the time, were within fome miles of tba place where the affair happened. He ordered the wit- neffes to be fent for, and the prifoners to be taken care of. However, the next day, long before the witneffes could arrive, he again fent for them; and finding his fubjeCls clamorous for what they call jujlice, the moment they came into his prefence, the unfortunate men were knocked down, - and baftinadoed in a dreadful manner by his black- guards, He then aireCled a blackl'mith to draw with his pincers two of Mr. Layton's front teeth, which he fent as a compenfation to the old woman for her pretended lofs. Mr. Layton was then fent as a prefent, chains and all, to a Mr. Livingfton, at that time in Morocco on commercial bufinefs from Gibral- tar : the poor Frenchman went delirious through fear, and continues fo.

The above premifes are held by leafe tinder John Bower Jodrell, Efq; for a term of 21 years, commencing the 24th of June, 1776, under the yearly rent of 122I. For particulars enquire of Mr. Kay, attorney, Marfden- ftreet, Manchefter, or Mr. Dickinfon, auftioneer. yet to compenfate for Mr. Layton's fnfferings, he would _ appoint him Secretary of State for all European bufinefs— lifax, dyers; at the Talbot inn, Halifax, would order King George to give him a large penfion, and 17- Thomas I'arkes, of Bitm'mgbam, druggi ftill further to fhew the regard his moft Barbarous Majefty o:— 1-- 1—- had for him, he would oblige all European powers to cor- refpond with him in Englifh. What puts the validity of the ftory out of doubt is, that letters have been written by Mr. Layton, and counterfigned by the Emperor, on official bu- finefs. As the extenfion of the Excife Laws is the fubjeCl of Parliamentary difcuflion, the following faa curioudy illuf- trates the effefls of thefe laws. . . . . In eftimating the quantity of fpirits of any denomination, in the ftock of a trader, it is neceffary to afcertain, not mere- ly the quantity of liquid, but the ftrength of that liquid, in order to afcertain the quantity of fpirits: becaufe water, or any other fluid, added, will increafe the quantity of liquid without adding to the quantity of fpirit, and pafting the whole through the ftill, will diminiftl the quantity of liquid with- out increafing the quantity of fpirit. To afcertain the ftrength of any liquid, the inftrument is called an hydrometer, and Clarke's hydrometer is that employed by the Officers of the Excife. To vary the ftrength of the fluid, is an operation ncceffary to all dealers in fpirits; and to fome, the reftifiers for inftance, a continual reduCtion of the flrength of all brandies, & c. made or imported, is the conftant operation, and known legal bufinefs of the trader. If, however, their flock ( hall appear to be increafed, the trader is liable to have his property feized, and is, moreover, fubjefl to the penalties. It is evident, therefore, that if the lnftrinnent employed to afcertain the ftrength gives the apparent ftrength greater than the real in reduced fpirits, there muft be a per- petual apparent increafe of ftock, and conlequently perpetual forfeitures, and. perpetual penalties, provided fuch lalfe hy- drometer be eftablilhed by law. All hydrometers, even the moft incorrett, agree in one ' L'. L nrnnf.

" FRIDAY AN- 11 SATURDAY LONDON, July 22. rP" HE Turks have had an engagement with the Ruffians, at X Birnia, in Moldavia; in which, the former were routed with great lof's. There has alfo been a very fevere engage- ment at Galatz, between 8000 Ruffians and 17,000 Turks, in • which the latter were defeated with the lofs of 7000 killed. I he Turkith fleet did not fail till the firft of June for the Black Sea, and was very badly manned, notwithflanding a hot prefs in all par s. The fleet for the White Sea remains at Conftantinople, as Teamen cannot be got. The letters received from Amflerdam yeflerday, bring an account, that an exprefs is arrived there with news of the Swedifh fleet being out from Carlfcroon, in force 21 fail of the line and 16 frigates;— if fo, they will prevent the junc- tion of the Ruffian fhips, which failed from Copenhagen, with their grand fleet off Revel. The Bank pf Berlin, which afts under the King's authority, has lent 800,000 lix- dollars ( about i6o, oocl.) to the King of Sweden; and a banking- houfe in Amfterdam has advanced about ioo, oool. on the fecurily of the Swedifh government. A petition was prefented on Tuefday from the Manufaftur- ers of Tobacco and Snuff, to the Court of Common Coun- cil, praying their interferance ; and the Court agreed to pe- tition the Houfe of Lords againft the Excife Tobacco Bill. The revolution that has taken place in France aftoniffies every politician; in Europe, to whom the news has rpached. That a nation, whole charafteriftic for feveral centpri. es has been unconditional fubmiflion to flavcry, fhould have 011 a fudden, in the twinkling of an eye, been animated kith the boldeft fpirit of liberty and patriotifm, is an evAit to be contemplated with wonder. It is no let's remarkable, that their whole conduft hitherto has been marked by that wif- dom, which is almoft never the inipulfe of a moment, but the refult of a long concerted plan. Lord Mafferene, who has been releafed by the prefent commotions in France, is an Irilh Earl. In his I. ordfhip's juvenile days, he was what the world deemed a wild young man, and unfortunately falling into company with a let of fharpers, was plundered of ail immenfe fum, for which he gave bonds ; but finding out the iniquity of the. gang, and that it was robbery and not chance that caufed his loffes, he refufed to pay, was arrefted, and put into prifon. The laws of France, iu refpeft to debt, are, that if a man is able to payvand refufes, he ffiall be confined for twenty- one years— hut his Lordfhip having attempted, before the expiration, to make his efcape, and being detefted, his confinement was or- dered to continue, probably for life, had not the fpirit of public liberty burftthe doors of his prifon, and rcftored him to his country, his relations, and his friends. and to have the prayer of fuch petition fuppcrted by Counfel at the bar." Lotd Cathcart explained, that he had conceived the pre- f'ent bfll to come under the fame idea of objeftion that was made to a petition againft the Receipt tax, the Hawkers and Pedlars Bill, and the Regulation Newfpaper Bill. The Chancellor put the queftion on Lord Stormont's mo- tion, which was carried ncm. dijfentient, after which the Houfe adjourned to Thurl'day. HOUSE or COMMONS. TUESDAY, July 21. Mr. Beaufov moved, that the Revolution Bill might be read a third time, and the queftion being put, Sir William Dolben rofc to oppofe this bill, conceiving it to be perfeftly fuperfluous Sir Jol'eph Mawbey oppofed the bill principally on account of the additional trouble it would give the Clergy. However, if this bill did pafs, he fhould propofe a claufe, that th: Clergy fhould have 20s. for reading the aft of Parliament." Mr. Conrtenay confidered as an infult to the Clergv, the claufe propofed by Sir Jofeph Mawbey, for making them an allowance of 20s. In his opinion, the day appointed fo the commemoration of the glorious Revolution, ffiould be fixed on the very day on which the French vindicated their liberty. Such a compliment would confole our Gallic friends for the refufal of 20,000 facks of grain; and in that manner too, we fhould exhibit to all Europe a Chining example of humanity and politenefs;— they alked for bread, and we ffiould feed them with flummery. The Houfe divided 011 the third reading, when there ap pearcd, In favour of it 23 Againft it 14 Sir Jofeph Mawbey withdrew his motion, after which tin bill palled, and was carried by Mr. Beaufoy to the Lords for their concurrence Mr. Gilbert brought up the report on the Piece Goods Bill which was read a firft and fecond time, and ogrced to.

Lord Cathcart confidcred the bill as an aft ta raife money for the fervice of the State, and as there was a Handing or- der that na petition fhould be received, or council heard a- gainft a bill of fupply, he ffiould oppofe the motion made by the noble Vifcount. The Chancellor 011 this, quitted the Woolfack, and declar- ed it as his opinion, that the petitioners had an undoubted conftitutional right to be heard by counfel againft the bill. " God forbid, faid the learned Lord, that a Britifh fubjeft fhould ever be denied the privilege of making his complaint to Parliament; we ( hould then, indeed, be reduced to a ftate of government that would merit the fevereft reproaches.

The bill, in faft, is not what is generally underftood to be a money- till it is a bill for altering and amending an old bill, and for the better regulation of a particular trade, and as fuch, by every principle of juftice, and every rule of law, comes within the defcription of an aft, againft which the parties who think thcmfelves aggrieved, have a right to petition, The Induftry, Caffidy, fr Newry, with cows & pigs.

On Wednefday his Lordfhip held a Vifitation of the Clergy, and on Thurfday the cere- mony of confecration was performed in the new church at the bottom of the Long- Millgate, built by the Rev. Mr. Owen, which is named Saint Michael. On Sunday laft the Rev. Mr. Wefley preached at the Mceting- Houfe in this town, to a moft crowded congrega- tion, confifting of upwards of four thoufand perfons. His difcourfe was 111 favour of the Abolition of the Slave Trade,, from the following text " God Jhall enlarge Japheth, and he Jhall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canapn fhall le his fervant." Genefis ix. 27.— On this humane principle the ve- nerable divine expatiated very largely, and in a pointed man- ner fhewed the ncceffity, as well as policy, of giving the oppreffed Africans thole inherent rights which belong to human nature. Yefterday fe'nnight, the Coroner's inqueft was taken on view of the body of Jofeph Ridgway, of Stockport, who was killed by a kick he received from his matter. The cruel conduft towards the boy had been fuch as it is feared is but too frequent amongft perfons of a certain defcription. The Jury found the matter guilty of murder, and he is accordingly committed to take his trial at the next affizes. It is earncftly hoped that this cafe may deter others from being guilty of cruel ufage to their apprentices— efpecially as the laws in being are amply fufficient for legally punifhing thofe who are refraftory, when a moderate aud difcreet correftion from the matter is found inefficient. On Sunday evening a moft horrid murder was committed by one Francis Marfon ( a perfon who has for fome time travelled the country with a ttallion) on the body of Thomas Brooks, of Naft'erton, near Great- Drifficld. They had been drinking together at Naffertoi) aforcfaid, and a dii'pute arofe refpefting the payment of two- pence ;— they however left the houfe without any feeming aniinofity to each other, but Brooks had not proceeded far ere he was joined by Marfden. who fwore if he would not pay the two- pence, he would cut his arm off; the deceafed contended in his juftification of net paying it, and the vile affaflin immediately drew out a large knife, and ftabbed him in the body.— The poor nri^ n imme- diately ran towards the public- houfe ; but before he reached the place he dropped down dead. The murderer was pre- fently fecured. On Saturday laft, about half paft twelve o'clock, the in- habitants of Roby, in this county, were greatly furprized and alarmed by the appearance of a very extraordinary whirlwind, which came from the weflward ; it firft attrafted their notice by the great quantity of leaves and hay- grafs, which, in its paffage, it had ftripped from the trees, and taken from the cocks of hay over which it had paffed, when on a fudden it took an entire cock of hay from a field behind the fmithy, and carried it entire fo high into the air, that it appeared no larger tl; an a hat crown, when it fell down, and in its fall difperfed : the people were fo greatly terrified, that they involuntarily ran into their houfes, for fear of be- ing carried up with it. A few days ago, as Mr. Thomas Collins . and Thomas Ruf- fell Dobbins, of the parifh of Littleton- upon- Severn, in the county of Gloucefter, were drinking together, fome woids arofe between them, and they proceeded to blows; when the latter, finding himfelf too weak for the other, took up a ftone, and threw it with fuch violence againft Mr. Collins, that ftriking him on the fide of the head, it fraftured his fkull, and he is fince dead. The Coroner's Inqueft fat on the body, and brought in their verdift Wilful Murder. The de- ceafed has left a wife and five fmall children. Matthew Tait, aged 120 years, is now living in the village of Aughton Lake, in Airffiire, Scotland : He enlifted into the army 104 years fince, and is now in good health, takes a proper nourifhment of beer, and has lately leafed a piece of land, on which he intends to build a houfe for his refidence, duting the remainder of his life. On Monday fe'nnight, Mrs. Sufannah Harridge, wife of Thomas Harridge, at Leigh, in Effex, was delivered of a fon, being her nineteenth child within twenty- one years, and all at fingle births. A letter from York fays, " His Royal Highnefs the Prince of Wales has been pleafcd to accept Mr Alderman Bluitt's houfe for the refidence of him and his Royal Brother, the Duke of York, the enfuing race week. A houfe near the above is alfo engaged for the reception of their Royal High- neffes the Dukes of Clarence and Cumberland. Laft week a gentleman of the name of Churchill, was called up before the Court of King's- Bench, as being a principal in defrauding a tradefman of a quantity of goods— We be- lieve, a few years ago, this fame gentleman did fome bufinefs in this town. The Queftion to be debated at the Angel inn, in Oldham, on Monday the 3d. day of Auguft, at feven o'clock in the evening, is, " Whether is the dread of poverty, or the hope of riches, the greater fpur to iuduitry ?" ( pf" We have received A. D's. Letter.— The fubjeft having been fo lately decided upon by the Legiffature, the publication of it would certainly be ill timed ; and the difcuffion it in- vites would become uninterefting to our readers.

NEW DUTY ON NEWSPAPERS AND ADVER- TISEMENTS. THE A61 being nearly ratified which impofa an additional Duty of a Halfpenny on each Newfpaperx the Editor of this Paper moft refpeafvlly informs his Frhnds, that the price of it mujl covfequently then be raifed to Three- pence Halfpenny. — It will be readily allowed, that when the vender of any article only charges ' the public with what he is taxed, the tax viujl operate againjl him; and as, in the prefent injlance, the Editor has adopted that plan, he hopes for the a edit of endeavouring to Jferve his Subfcribers upon the eafirjl terms in his power. The ufe of a Newfpaper feems pretty obvious— it is the general Channel for Political and Commercial Intelligence— it conveys information which no other publication is intitled to give— and it particular ly forms that grand medium, which is diftinguifhed by the appellation of the LIBERTY OF THE PRESS — A Liberty which is the exclufive borfl of Englifhmen If this be the true ufe of a New/ paper, a publifher may reafonably hope to be fupported under the efeSls of en arbitrary tax, which it is out of his power to avoid. The profits of a newfpaper appear to lie fo open to the public, that it is not unufual to eflimate them, and to rate the advantages of the publijier very high— but the Jlatement mufi always be fallacious, fince the ' certain Icffes » added to the many various expences, often render it but a hazardous undertaking. The prompt payment, and extent of the duties, are circumfiances that contribute not a little to render this pub- lication precarious, the amount of them being two- thirds of the whole fum received, without any deduttion— and the public mujl be well afured, that the publifher of a paper cannot be fecured from thofe loffes, which are commonly attend- ant on trading concerns. In addition to the hardfhip of this tax, it has been thought proper to take from the publifhers the privilege of returning the Newfpapers left on hand— a privilege which was certainly of confiderable advantage to them, and which appears to have every claim of Jufiice on its fide. In printing a large impreffion, it is impoffible to avoid having, in the courfe of the year, a confiderable number unfold — At prejent Government receive the old papers, and allow an equal number of fiamps for them— that advantage is to be totally taken away, without the fmallejl recompence— for after the new a£ l takes place, no paper can be returned to the Stami- office. r From this relation of FaEls, which it is neceffary on fuch an occafion to ( late, the public will fee the fituatiqn of 1 the publifher from the prefent advance, and how little he has to exped in adopting it. The duty of Sixpence on each advertifement takes place at the fame time, in confequence of which all advertifements of common fize will be five fhillings each infertion, and, as ufual, more in proportion to their length. It is, however, a peculiar fatisfattion to the Editor to inform his advertifina- friends, that his circulation is fuch as mufl anfwer their utmofi expectations, the fale having amounted, for a confider- able time paft, to two thoufand three hundred papers every week— and he cannot fuppofe it will be much injured by the prefent circumfiance, when it is confidered^ hat, in corr. plying with the forms of an AB. of Parliament, he is only paying proper refpeR to the Laws of his Country. Animated with the mofl earnefi defire of giving fatisfac- tion to his numerous readers, the Editor pledges himfelf not to omit any opportunity of laying before them every [ pedes of information it may be in his power to obtain; and, to give c, copious and general a detail of paffing occurrences, as the nature of a weekly Chronicle will admit. The new aR is dated the firfi of Augufi, but does not operate till after that day, this paper, therefore, will not be raifed till Saturday the eighth of Augufi, when the dutva mufi take place. As every paper left, unfold will then be entirely loft to the publifher, he rcjpc& fully requefis that fuch of his readers as may in future wifh to decline taking it, will give at leaft a fortnight's notice, as no returns can. be taken from the news- men. By the above aB, evervperfon who lends out a newftiaper to hire, isjubjetl to a penally of Ten Pounds for every ojftnee. PRICE of STOCKS on WEDNESDAY.
