HUNTINGDON, NORFOLK.

[ Price Three- Pence Half- Penny. Saturday and Sunday's Posts. . From the LONDON GAZETTE. Whitehall, August 8, HE King has been pleased to constitute and appoint the Right Honourable William Pitt, the Honourable Edward James Eliot, the Right - Honourable Richard Earl of Mornington of the kingdom of Ireland, Knight of the Illustrious order of St. Patrick, the Right Honourable John Jefferies Pratt, commonly called Lord Viscount Bayham, and the Right Honour- able Henry Bathurst commonly called Lord Apsley, to be commissioners for executing the office of treasurer of his Majesty's Exchequer. Vienna, July 25. The Emperor's fever is consider- ably abated, and yesterday his Majesty was so well as to be able to take an airing in an open carriage. The last intelligence received here mentions that Marshal Haddick still retained his position at Weiss- kirchen, from whence he had sent several detachments to join the Prince of Hohenlohe, in Transylvania, as that province was menaced with an irruption of the Turks, who were assembled in considerable force near Riminik in Wallachia. - The letters from Moldavia state that Prince Potemkin had arrived at Yassy towards the end of last month. LONDON. HOUSE of PEERS. Thursday, August 6. The India loan hill was reported, and the amendments were agreed to. It was ordered to be read a third time to- morrow. The order of the day being read for the commitment of the bill respecting cocoa- nuts, cockets, tub- vessels, Sec. The Duke of Leeds observed that as this bill was in part ob- - jectionable, and no inconvenience could result from its postpone- ment, it would be adviseable to reject it. He would therefore move for its rejection To this motion no opposition was made. The question was put for the third reading of the tobacco bill, which brought up The Duke of Leeds, who, partly from considerations of delicacy in the case of altering money- bills, partly on account of the delay that would attend the passing of this bill if the amendment he had proposed in the committee should be peristed in, and likewise from an apprehension that the amendment in question might appear in- judicious, was willing to withdraw it. The amendment was therefore withdrawn from its place in the bill, which was thus left in that erroneous and imperfect state in which the commons had sent it to their lordships. The bill was then read a third time and passed , Friday, August 7. the India loan bill was read a third time, and received the assent of their lordships. A message was sent to the commons with a copy of the bill, desiring the concurrence of that house in the amendment made in it by the lords, which was nothing more than the omission of . that clause which permits guardians to purchase India Stock with the money of their wards. At four their Lordships adjourned till Tuesday next. HOUSE of COMMONS. Thursday, August 6. A new writ Was ordered out for Denbighshire, vice Sir Watkin Williams Wynne, deceased. A message was received from the lords, stating that they had Agreed to the the coffee drawback bill, the piece- goods bill, the custom bill, and the tobacco bill, without any amendments. Friday, August 7. Though the members began to assemble about two, they did not make a house till near four ; immediately after which they re- ceived back the India Loan bill from the Lords. Mr. Steele moved that the amendment made in this bill by the Lords be taken into consideration. It was accordingly read twice and agreed to without any debate. Mr. Mitford, the new Welch Judge, who was lately re- elected for Beeralston in Dcvonshire, took the oaths and his seat, being introduced between the Attorney and Solicitor General. The house adjourned till Monday, The Duke of Bedford has at length determined to Sa- crifice to- Hymen. The lady is sister to Lord Courtney, and brings every thing to render the state happy, but money. The conduct of the American Congress as appears from the regular accounts in the papers, brought in the Carter, Capt. Storer, arrived last week at Whitehaven, is marked with great prudence and moderation ; their forms are an exact copy of the usage of the British senate, and there are amongst them men who seem to have made no inconsiderable progress in declamation.— The state of New- York in particular is making regular approaches towards a situation which cannot fail of rendering it very- respectable. The consequnces of good order and an established government are already apparent; the public papers of the city of New- York exhibit the picture of an improving police and an increasing commerce. Not only the necessaries of life but its conveniencies, and even its elegancies are there to be found. In every thing this country is the model adopted. The press, the value of which seems justly appreciated by all the Americans, is in no place more warmly patronized ; the best English authors are continually issuing amongst the subjects of the new empire ; and their periodical works are assuming a very respectable appearance.— Amongst these are a Con- gressional Register, professedly on the same plan as our Parliamentary Register, and a Daily Advertiser, which on an average contains 150 advertisements. Extract of a letter from Marseilles, July 8, " The Algerines have of late committed many out- rages against the French flag. About a month ago a French ship from Cette was taken by an Algerine pirate, carried into Algiers, and the Captain and crew made slaves. They have since taken two other vessels, one of which was laden with sugar, coffee, and cocoa, the cargo of which they sold, and kept the crew, but did not make them slaves. They had likewise taken another ship from America, but it was retaken by two Portuguese frigates, and carried with the Algerine to Lisbon, but the 11 persons who were on board the corsair were fent to Algiers. In consequence of these captures his Majesty sent orders to Toulon to arm two frigates ;. and the chamber of commerce at Marseilles have also armed four tartanes, which are to cruise in the Straits of Gibraltar, to direct the French ships coming from the ocean to avoid the coasts of Barbary, and to range along those of Spain. We cannot ac- Count for this sudden attack, but think that some power has prejudiced the regency of Algiers- against us, to in- crease our embarrassment, and render our commerce ( which is already harrassed by our affairs at home) still more inactive' The steps lately pursued by government in respect to examining ships in- the port of London, having grain and flour on board, have had the very best effect, by pre- venting any more being sent abroad. The natural con- sequences is, the markets are now better supplied. We learn from Bengal, that Golam Kadir, who put out the eyes of the Great Mogul, after having been taken prisoner by Scindia, has through his orders had his eyes pulled out, and his legs and arms cut off alive ; but he did not survive this terrible and just execution long. Last week the clerk of an eminent distiller a Vaux- hall, absconded with upwards of two thousand pounds of his master's property, with which also he has taken the value of the furniture of an elegant house in St. George's Fields. An eminent tradesman spoke some disrespect words of an officer.— The officer demanded satisfaCtion ; the tradesman would not fight; the officer caned him ; and the tradesman brought an action to recover damages for the assault and which was lately tried in the court of King's Bench. The plaintiff's council stated, that his client was a peaceable citizen, who had been assaulted by the defendant, because he had refused to violate the laws of God and man by fighting a duel with him which the advocate for the defendant contended, there were some personal injuries, so circumstanced, whilst as human laws could not reach; nothing short of per- sonal resentment could punish them. The jury, there- fore, would consider the profession of the defendant ; reflect upon the provocation he had received ; be mind- ful of the feelings of human nature, and then he was persuaded their damages would he little more than nominal. The jury found a verdict for the plaintiff — Damages 20i. Lady Charleville was thrice married;— and each time an humble servant literally became her Lord and Master. Did the constitution admit of female representatives, the late Lady Charleville might, with great propriety, have stood for the city,— for no one had a stronger attach- ment to the livery, to Mr. SPlLSBURY, CHYMIST, Soho Square, London- SIR, August 1st, 1789.

JOHN PARKINSON. EDWARD HARE. JOHN HUDSON. 24th July, 1789. AT a MEETING of the NORTH LEVEL COMMITTEE of COMMISSIONERS, and of the LAND OWNERS in the said LEVEL, & c. held pursuant to. public Notice given in the General Evening Post, and Cambridge and Stamford Newspapers, at the Rose and Crown Inn, in WISBECH ST. PETER's, on Wednesday the Fifth Day of August, 1789, Mr. SAMPSON BARBER in the Chair, Th. Report of the North Level Committee of the Fourteenth Day of May last being read, Resolved, That it appears to this Meeting, that the Funds for the Support of the outward Banks and Works which preserve the North Level and Portfand, are now inadequate to such Purpose ; and that the Interest of the Debt of 25,0001. owing thereon, is the Cause of such Insufficiency. Mr. Maxwell having stated to this Meeting, that a great Number of Proprietors intend to petition his Grace the Duke of Bedford, and Sir Sampfon Gideon, to lower the Interest of their several Debts from 5l. to 41. per Cent, per Annum ; and also to petition his Grace to assign over the Profits of the Banks and Fisheries, rented by him of the Corporation of Bedford Level, to the Public Use; It is the Opinion of this Meeting, that the Funds, when so increased, will not be adequate to the future Support of the Works dependant thereon. But it appears to this Meeting, that if the Interest of the Whole Debt could be lowered 2l. per Cent, that such an Addition to the Funds may be adequate thereto. It appears to this Meeting, that His Grace is a Creditor to the Amount of Sir Sampson Gideon, — — Other Creditors, £ 25,000 Mr. Wing, Agent to his Grace the Duke ot Bedford, having proposed to lower the Interest of his Grace's Debt to 3I. per Cent, per Annum from Midsummer last, if Sir Sampson Gideon will do the same, such Diminution of Interest, on both their Debts, will add to the Funds 394I. per Annum. It is also the Opinion of this Meeting, that the other Creditors to the Amount of 53001. not being Proprietors, it cannot be re- quested of them to lower their Interest to 3I. per Cent ; but Mr. Maxwell having ofFered to advance 5,300l or any Part thereof, at Lady- Day, 1790, at 4I. per Cent that such Offer should be ac- cepted, for the Whole or such part thereof as the present Creditors do not chuse to lend at the Rate of 4I per Cent. On Application to Mr. Wing respecting the Profits of the Banks and Fisheries rented by his Grace of the Corporation, it - was agreed, that the several Leases should be reconsidered by the Corporation of Bedford Level at their next April Meeting; and that such Rent should be paid by his Grace from Lady- Day last past, as the Corporation, on their further Consideration of the Matter, should think proper. Resolved, That it is the Opinion of this Meeting, that so long as the Funds shall continue to receive the before- mentioned Augmentat- ions, no further Taxation than the present may be necessary; but that if an Alteration hereafter shall take Place to decrease the same, or they shall evidently appear to b « insufficient, Application to Par- liament will be necessary for the Preservation of the North Level and Portsand. Mr. Maxwell not being prepared to assent to the lowering Sir Sampson Gideon's Interest to 3I. per Cent. this Meeting is. adjourned to the Duke Head's Inn, in Thorney, on Wednesday the Twenty sixth Instant, to receive Sir Sampson Gideon's Determination ; and in the mean Time it is the Opinion of this Meeting, that Notice of an intended Application to Parliament should be given, that the same may proceed, in Case Sir Sampson Gideon should not assent to the lowering his Interest. Resolved, That these Refolutions be printed TwiCe in the General Evening Post, and Twice in the Cambridge and Stamford Newspapers. Resolved, That the Thanks of this Meeting be given to his Grace the Duke of Bedford, for his liberal and handsome Offer of the Reduction of the Interest of his Debt on the North Level, from 5 to 3 per Cent. Resolved, That the Thanks of this Meeting be given to the Chairman, for his impartial Attention to the Business of the Day. { Signed) S. BARBER, Chairman. VENISON. - PARK, FOREST, and CHACE DEER.

An act for the more effectual execution of the laws respecting gaols. And to four other public and two private bills. After which the Lord Chancellor made the following speech : < f My Lords and Gentlemen, " We have it in command fresh his Majesty to express to you . the satisfaction with which his Majesty has observed the continued proofs which you have given, during the present session of your uniform attention to the public business, and of your zealous concern for the honor and interest of his crown, and the welfare and prosperity of his people. " Gentlemen of the House of Commons, " His Majesty has particularly directed us to return you his thanks for the readiness with which you have granted the necessary supplies for the several branches of the public service. " My Lords and Gentlemen, " Although the good offices of his Majesty and his allies have not hitherto been effectual for restoring the general tranquility of Europe, he has the satisfaction of seeing the further extension of hostilities has been prevented, and that the situation of affairs continiues to pro mise to this country the uninterrupted enjoyment of the blessings of peace. The Lord Chancellor by his Majesty's command, then prorogued the Parliament to Thursday the twenty- ninth day of OctOber next. L O N D O N. HOUSE of COMM0NS. ' Mondaty, Aug. 10. . Lord John Townshend presented a petition from many of the electors of Westminster relative to the right of election, as lately settled by the Westminster committee. This petition was ordered to be taken into consideration on the 1st of October next. Ordered a new writ for Ryegate, in Surrey, in the room of Mr, Belingham, who has accepted the office of one of the Commissioners for victualling the Royal- Navy. Two new writs were also moved for, one for East- Looe, in Corn, wall, vice Lord Belgrave, who has accepted the Stewardship of the Chiltern Hundreds; the other for Rippon, in Yorkshire, in the room of Sir John Goodrick, Bart, deceased.— Adjourned. The present session has been the longest since the con quest, and perhaps the longest one known in this king- dom- It began early in November laft, from which time to the middle of August is more than nine months Recent letters from Madrid , advise, that the King of Spain had sent the most explicit refusal to the Court of Versailles, of the body of Spanish troops so earnestly solicited by the Grand Monarque.—- The King of Sar dinia has likewise waved a similar requisition, but in more courtly terms. The Inquisition is now the only grand engine of ty- ranny remaining in Europe. But that is very far from possessing the power it formerly had ; the late King abridged them so far, that every proceeding is obliged to be laid before him, and no person punished without full proof of the fact. By a gentleman who lately resided in Spain, we are assured that the Inquisition is now little more than a bugbear; there has been no Auto de Fe for many years. The last one worth mentioning was above a century ago, in the year 1680. All advices from Vienna agree, that the revolution in France has entirely changed the politics of the Imperial Cabinet, and a speedy peace is now the general expecta tion ; the flame of freedom is now spreading fast in the. low countries, and it is high time for Joseph to look at home. One Forde was executed on Saturday se'nnight in Dublin, for a robbery, and exhibited a shocking spirit of obstinacy and resistance previous to his death. Force became indispensably necessary to make him yield to his sentence, after having attempted the life, not only of the executioner, but even that of the clergyman who attended him, At the time the fatal board was re- moved from his support, he lay prostrate, and in that situation was launched head foremost into eternity.

The ther a declaration of the rights of man, and of the citizens, should be prefixed to the constitution of the kingdom, was carried almost unanimously. This business being over, the president acquainted the house that he had just received a note from his Ma- jesty, for the assembly ; the contents were as follows : " In imparting to you, Gentlemen, how I have just disposed of the places, that were vacant in the administration, I give a proof of my conforming to the sentiments of confidence, which ought to subsist amongst us. I have entrusted with the war- depart- ment M. de la Tour- du- Pin Paulin ; I have made keeper of the seals, the Archbishop of Bourdeaux ; and one of my privy- council, the prince of Beauveau. La feuille des benefice ( the list of vacant livings) I have given to the Archbishop of Vienne. The choice I made from among your own . Members will clearly evince how anxious I am to preserve the most constant and friendly harmony with the National Assembly." ( Signed) Louis." The reading of this letter produced the most lively and agreeable sensations in the hearts of all the Deputies, and loud plaudits proclaimed their satisfaction. All rose and unanimously agreed on an address of thanks, which was to be presented by 25 members, the president included, that very evening. A letter from Brest, addressed to the National Assem- bly was read next, and the contents not a little alarmed the house. No less than three different parties are contending for the right of protecting the harbour and arsenal ; the land and sea forces, and the militia. The town, afraid of an insurretion on account of the dissention likely to happen among the three different commanders, humbly solicits the National Assembly's protection, and requests to have Count d'Estaing as Generalissimo of all the forces. Soon after the letter was read, the house resolved, that the president, with the deputies, should wait on his Majesty, and acquaint him with the town of Brest's requests, the national assembly not thinking it proper to meddle with the appointing of a general officer. A letter from the Duke of Dorset to M. de Mont- morin, who had sent it to the assembly, was next exa- mined. It Contained farther assuranees of the court of St. James, and the British Ministry's intentions of pre- serving the greatest harmony with the French nation. The house adjourned at seven o'clock in the evening, when the three essays of Mess. L'Abbe Syeyes, Mounier, and Target, on the rights of man, were to be examined ; and one of them, if approved of, accepted. • The de bates ran high, but between twelve and one, some members departing from the subject, and touching on some points of the constitution, all the house, actuated by one of those principles which springs from pure patriotism, divesting themselves of all private interest, formed but one body, and, as if vying with one another in point of generosity, unanimously agreed to pass the following acts, which were signed in the morning by his Majesty. I. A proportionable distribution of imports. ' II. A renunciation of all privileges in townsand provinces. The inhabitants of Paris having patriotically renounced all theirs, re- quell a general conformity in the kingdom, so that for the future a confederacy may be formed. III. The recovery of feudal rights. IV. Suppression of Mortmain, and all personal servitude. V. The price for the recovery of the clergy's rents to be as the profit of livings. VI. Abolition of all privileges of the chase and rangers' places. VII. Abolition of the Lords of the Manors' tribunals. VIII. Abolition of venality of office. IX. Justice distributed gratis to the people. X. Abolition of dove- houses and warrens. XI. Recovery of all tythes and quit rents. XII. No feudal rights, or any other of that kind to be created more. XIII. Abolition of casualties in livings ( such as burials, & c.) except in towns. XIV. To encrease the curates salaries. XV. Suppression of annates ( the Pope will annually lose eight million of livres by it). XVI. Admission of all citizens into civil and military offices. XVn. Suppression of the right of deport a kind of first fruit paid by the rector to the bishop.) XVIII. Suppresion of wardenships. XIX. Plurality of livings suppressed. XX. A medal to be struck in commemoration of the happy day. XXI. Te Deum to be sung ai Versailles, and in every town of the kingdom. XXII. Louis XVI. to be proclaimed the restorer of French liberty. These articles were publicly read on the Exchange yesterday, and occasioned the funds to rise two and a half per cent, im- mediately. Although M. Necker has been recalled by the almost unanimous. voice of the nation, no man had ever a more difficult part to act. While he can depend on the people, he may be able to carry his cup even, but, should emulation fire his mind, the consequences may be as fatal to himself as to the nation. On M. Necker's entering the balcony, at the Hotel de Ville of the President, he was presented with a cock- ade in the following words: " Sir, here are colours which you will cherish without doubt— they are those of liberty." Mr. Nccker then put it into his hat. After he had done speaking to the Assembly, whose eyes, as well as those of the spectator, were shedding tears, a general voice agreed to his last sentence, by calling out, Merey, mercy, to . the guilty; a general am- nesty:—' The Assembly Came to a resolution of granting a general pardon, an oblivion in consequence of the festival which existed by the return of Mr. Necker-, and that the same should be read. But on a report of the above being made the next morning to the National Assembly, their opinions were very different, and a great debate ensued on the point. " That the electors of Paris had no right to grant a general amnesty, as such power belonged only to the Assembly." In the afternoon they came to the following resolution: " That if a generous and humane people wish for ever to prohibit all proscriptions, it became the repre- sentatives of the nation to try and punish those Who were accused and convicted of having made any attempt against the safety, the liberty, and the public tranquility; that consequently the National Assembly persists in its former regulations, respecting the responsibility of Mini- sters,- and those entrusted with the executive power; and the establishment of a tribunal to pronounce, and a com- mittee to receive informations, instructions, and intel- ligence." The most important tranfaction we have to relate is, the defection and coming over of the four regiments, who, by agreement, were to remain as the King's guard at Versailles. They have joined the national troops, who now do the King's duty in turn at Ver- sailles. The States General have accepted the offer of the Parisian militia, to protect them at Verfailles; 5000 are gone there for that purpose, in case of any com- motion .' The disturbances in the provinces are horrid to relate : near Mans, in the province of Maine, the Lord of a Manor, on requesting his tenants to cut down some grass for his own use, agreeable to the custom of the manor, peasants inhumanly set on him, and chopped off his head and his son in law; who endeavoured to save him, experienced the same fate; At Lisle, the excesses have been great; burning of houses, & c. & c. The subjects of the Emperor, in Austrian Flanders are likewise beginning to shew a disposition very similar to those of France: a patriotic brewer, concerned in the former troubles, was apprehended, and committed to prison at Louvaine ; but from which he was soon after released by- the populate, and borne off in triumph. Another head was cut off on Sunday last at St. Denis! The Mayor of that town, having made use of some ill- natured reply to some of the populace, who were complaining of the dearness and badness of bread, underwent the same fate with the unhappy Foulon. The mob were coming to Paris with the head, but were, prevented by the militia at the turnpike. In a dark dungeon in the Bastile, a dead body in chains has been found, in a narrow close cupboard, dried like an Egyptian mummy ; a sad victim to the mini- sterial despotism of former times. The Duke of Dorset has obtained permission to return to England whenever his Grace shall think proper. No deserters from the army are in future to be re- ceived into the militia. ' The Prince de Lambeseq, after riding several nights and days in full gallop, arrived at Turin the 21st ult. Solemn masses have, been performed in different churches in Paris, for the re- establishment of peace in the capital, as well as to the memory of those who have fallen victims in the public cause.

An Opinion has therefore been ormed, that other seasons are unfavourable to such Remedies. This is not the Case; the Warmth of the Summer assists the salu- tary Operations of the Vegetable Syrup, and accelerates difficult Cures. Mr. SWAINsOn, the sole Proprietor of the authentic Recipe, and the only Person in England who can prepare the genuine Medi- cine, wishes to guard the Afflicted against the above Misapprehen- sion, and to assure the Public, that he has spared no Attention or Assiduity in preparing, preserving, and delivering the Vegetable Syrup in the best possible Condition. Mr. Swainson has just published an Account of Cases, superior in Number, Importance, and Credit, to any medical Book pro- duced by the Experience of One Man; and he has addeed such directions and Observations as, by little Attention, will enable those who want Assistance to judge of the Propriety or Impropriety of using the Medicine. Mr. SWAINSON has just sent a fresh Stock of the above Syrup to Mr. NeWCOMB, STAMford, his Wholesale Vender for the Cities and Towns within the Circuit of this Paper, who will sup- ply the Venders and the Public on the same Terms as at his House in Frith- Street. Friday's Post, by Express. LONDON, ThuRSDAy EVEniNg. Every account from Weymouth respecting his Majesty, the Queen, and Princesses, are satisfactory and pleasing; — they are all well. Bathing has agreed so well with his Majesty, that he has now his wonted florid countenance' and chearful spirits. The birth- day of the Prince of Wales was yesterday celebrated in London and Westminster. The clubs in St. James's- street, and the tradesmen employed by the several branches of the Royal Family, in all parts of the town, vied with one another in the splendour of their illuminations. Lords Chatham and Hood set off yesterday for Ply- mouth, in order to be present at the naval review at that place before his Majesty Yesterday the Duke of Dorset arrived in town from Paris, and immediately went to the Duke of Leed's, in Grosvenor- square. His Grace visits his Majesty in the West of the kingdom immediately. The following arrangement of the new Board of Ad- miralty may be depended on : Lord Chatham, Lord Belgrave, Lord Hood, Sir Francis Drake, Lord Arden, Hon. J. Townshend. . Lord Westmoreland is appointed to the post- office, ia the room of Lord Carteret. Lord Salisbury is created Marquis of Salisbury, and Lord Weymouth, Marquis of Bath. Advices were received in town yesterday morning, from Hamburg, which state, that an engagement hap- pened on the 25th of July, between the Duc de Suder- mania's and the Russian squadrons, to the south- west of the port of Helsingfors: It lasted feveral hours. A second engagement is also stated as having happened on the 27th ( two days after); but they have no particulars of either. It was reported, however, that the first was decidedly in favour of the Swedes, whose smaller ships were more manageable than those of the Russians, the whole having happened in stil water. The Swedish gal- lies, which were numerous, are reported to have galled the Russians in a remarkable manner. Sugars are advanced to a very high price within these few days, occasioned by the demands for the Northern powers, and the very great failure of crops in the French West India Islands. Recent letters from Paris state with confidence, that a remarkable natural phenomenon had occurred in that capital:— the wife of a poor man, a gunsmith's en- graver, in the Rue St. Germain l'Auxerrois et Traiteure, died some time past, in childbed, leaving several chil- dren alive, beside her last infant, the eldest of which, a girl of ten years of age, in order to quiet her little relative, was in the constant habit of giving it her own breast, which, strange to relate ! at length afforded that nutriment which is only derived from maternal resources! The letter further states, that this extraordinary cir- cumstance had been known to the King's physician, who had Visited the girl, to prove the truth of the rela- tion, which, if an artful deception, was so wonderfully executed, as to deceive many of the best- informed people in Paris. Sixty thousand negroes says Mr. Gibbon in his pompous manner) annually exported from the coast of Guinea, evince the guilt of Europe and the weakness of Africa. On Saturday last, a strawberry was taken from a bush at Bothwell Castle garden, measuring five inches in cir- cumference. Yesterday about three o'clock a fire broke out at a starch manufactory in Greyhound- lane, WhitechapeL road, which entirely consumed the new buildings. The dwelling- house adjoining sustained no material injury. CORN - LETTER. MARK- LANe Monday, August 10. Our Market was pretty well supplied with wheats to- day which went off exceeding heavily and considerably cheaper, and i pretty many remained unsold, our buyers being of opinion prices must still be lower. Barleys and malts were rather scarce, yet thejr went off heavily, if not very fine indeed; and we have verv few buyers of malt at prefent. Rye and good hard beans sold pretty readily, but white pease were exceeding dull, and oats rather cheaper, having several fresh arrivals. Some samples of new wheat were at market, and offered it 57s.

Mr. Atlay in St. Martin's church in this place for the benefit of the Sunday schools establish'd in that parish, and a collection made at the door by ihe Rev. Mr. Arch- deacon Tyson, and Mrs. Mottram, which amounted to nearly 47 pounds. During divine service the 100th Psalm, and an Anthem on the occasion by Dr. Miller, were per- form'd in a very masterly manner.— By the liberality of the contributors, the committee have not only been enabled to support the schools, but also to give confiderablc encou- ragement to such ccholars as have spun themselves cloathing. Since the institution above 100 children have been admitted, and there are at. this time upwards of 60 which constantly : attend. Tuesday was married, at Islington, Mr. Coddington, one of the aldermen of this corporation, to Miss Darke, of Fenchurch- street, London. Yesterday was married at Lilford, the seat of Thomas Powys, Esq. Christopher Nevile, esq. of Wellingore, in this county, to Miss Mann, a lady possessed of an ample fortune, and endowed with every accomplishment both of person and mind, A few days ago was married, the Rev. Samuel Bateman, A. M. Rector of Farthingstone, in ihe county of North- ampton, to Miss Ann Aglionby, third daughter of the late Henry Aglionby, Esq; of Nunnery, in Cumberland. On Saturday was married at St. John Baptist, Peterboro', Mr. Allen, to Miss Anne Russell, both of that city. On Saturday was married, Mr. Nat. Pearce, of Brampton, in Northamptonshire, to Miss Reid, of Leicester. Last week died, in Chapel- street, Grosvenor- square,' the Right Hon. Dowager Lady Carbery, grandmother of the Right Hon. Lord Carbery, of Laxton' Hall, near this place.— By the death of the above lady, Lord Carbery comes into the immediate possession of a real rental of several thousand pounds per annum. Her Ladyship's personal estate, which is likewise considerable, goes by will to the Hon. Mrs. Davy, aunt to his Lordship. In addition to what we mentioned would form a leading clause in the new act [ vide Stamford Mercury, July 16,] re- specting Carriages, may be placed the following, abstracted from the act itself, which did not receive the Royal assent until the first of August: From July 5, 1789, carriages with two or three wheels, ( drawn by one or more horses), ufed for pleasure and not generally for hushandry or trade, are to pay a duty of three pounds ten shillings per ann. and if not entered, the owners to forfeit 7l. for each ; half to be paid to the informer, and the other half to the collectors of the duty. Bv the same act, no person will in future be allowed to take a licence to deal in horses, unless he or they deliver a decla- ration of the particular place and places where such business is to be carried on.— If horse- dealers keep horses for riding or drawing, and not for sale, they are to he charged for them by the assessors, in the same manner as if they had no licence. Several of the London News Printers have advanced the price of their papers to fourpence each ; whilst others con- tent themselves with laying on only the additional duty of an halfpenny ; the fourpenny printers plead ( justly enough in a degree, it must be allowed) the advanced price of paper, wages, and other certain increased expences on the business. It is deserving notice, two of these papers absolutely assert, that their sale has increased since the additional duty took place A correspondent observes, that in no instance in his me- mory, the motto on the newspaper stamp, " SEMPEr eADEM" could better bear the burlesque translation of WORSE and worse than in its present application. He adds, he is certain the Commissioners of the Stamps un- derstand it in the above sense, or, they would certainly have ordered their engraver to have erased it, and let the additional word halfpenny have occupied its place. The harvest is generally begun in this neighbourhood.— The crops are as promising as for many years past ;— no com- plaint for want of produce, that we hear of, except in beans and pease the pods of which are said to he not well filled. Bv the most authentic accounts from several parts of the corn counties ( both by letters and other information), it ap- pears that the late high price of corn and flour is to be solely attributed to the iniquitous combinations of the corn- factors, rich farmers, mealmen, and other engrossers and monopolizers, and not to any real scarcity of the article in hand. Coals, which for years past were sold here in the summer months at 30s. per chaldron, are now advanced to 32s. owing, as we are assured, to a combination among the colliers for an advance of their wages, which their masters complied with ) added to which, the masters of the Coal ships have entered into an agreement— not for the benefit of the poor, or the dealers in coals A mountebank doctor has made his appearance in St. Martin's, Stamford Baron, and in the neighbouring towns in Northamptonshire, to the great hurt of the pockets of the labouring poor, apprentice boys, & c. & c.—- those who have it in their power should protect the unwary from the arts of such vagrants. Singular instance of longevity and health.— Last week passed through this town, from Inverness, in Scotland, in his way to London, - Maclcod, an out- pensioner of Chelsea Hospital:— This extraordinary man is in the one hundred and first year of his age, yet walks as brisk as most young men His object in going to town, is to solicit some little assistance through the medium of the Colonel in whose regiment he last served, he having married a second wife, by whom he has One son between six and seven years of age; and he states, that in all probability he shall soon have a further increase of family, and that his pension will not be sufficient to support them! He is a remarkable stout man, of a florid Complexion — his hair is perfectly white.— He first enlisted in the army two years previous to Queen Anne's ascending the throne, and served in Germany under the great Duke of Marlbo- rough, in all that Queen's wars. Notwilhstanding the number of dictionaries which have been published, and the repeated efforts of a Johnson, a Fenning, and a Sheridan, to retrieve our language from its former barbarism and vulgarity of diction, it still retains innumerable inaccuracies. the following is copied ver- batim from a bill handed About by an itinerant gentleman, in a neighbouring village : —" By the Justes Leave— this to to A Quant the Publick in Genral that thear is eh Rived in this Town Mills the Noted Fire Eater who intendes to Go True Most Wonders full & Suprisen Art of Dexterty of Hand : he Will entain the Compney With First of Devirtion the first Ben the salor a hornpip— the Secant A Nattalon Schrimoiuh- thordly Nantv Dawson— Fortly the tumbler— fiftly a poster Master and Master Punch— sixly Master P Wise — Sevenly the Deavel Carey all away— the Next is eh Song t0 conClude With eh Large Peach of Clock Works which Chymes 5 Tw Desrents one from the other likwis 2 Minit- with and 3 Dances." A human skeleton has been found in a pasture called Park- House, in the parrfti of Staindrop, a few yards from the road between Alston town, in Cumberland, and Woltingham, in the county of Durham. It measured six feet two inches in length, and seemed not to have been long in the earth. The inhabitants there remember to have heard the report of a pistol a considerable time ago, and as no person was missing, they are induced to think that some stranger must have been murdered. A suspicious person in the neighbourhood, on hearing of the skeleton being found, has disappeared, with- Out any apparent cause ; and a gentleman there supposing the deceased might have been a person from Manchester, has written to a friend there to have the matter made public. Tuesday night last, a man at Whaplode, in this county, Cut his throat, and was found in a terrible condition in bed the next morning with hit wife.— The poor man languished till next day, and died in- great agonies. The coroner's verdict, lunacy. Last Wednesday evening, as a servant woman with a child, ) i WaS returniug from Altringham fair, by the Duke's Cut, near Chester, the child being a little way before the woman, it fell into the water, and the woman, in attempting to save it, fell in also, and they were both unfortunately drowned," At Leicester, John Smith, alias Dyson, ( removed by habeas from Peterborough) for horse stealing, was found guilty, and received sentence of death. Wm. Hamer, Con- victed of manslaughter, was fined is. and ordered to be im- prisoned three months. . At Norwich, for the county of Norfolk, six prisoners Were capitally convicted, viz, William Hook the younger, and Richard Turner, ( there were ten other indictments against the above for divers burglaries and felonies), james Banks the elder, James Waterson, and William Bunnett, all for burg- laries ; and Robert Barnes, for horse- stealing The Judge reprieved Barnes; Waterson, and Bunnett; and left Hook; Turner, and Banks, sen. for execution. . David and Elizabeth Dickerson were tried, charged with starving to death, a daughter of the said David Dickerson; the child, when dead, though of the age of nine years, weighed no more than nine pounds; which, however, the surgeon who had examined it, said upon the trial, that it was possible such a decay might have been occasioned by some internal disease: There were many unfeeling and aggravating circumstances in the course of the trial, which lasted more than three hours; but which, however, were not considered as proving the fact they were charged with as the jury, after, being out of court above an hour and finding they could not punish them short of death, brought in a verdict, not guilty At Norwich was tried a cause, Curry versus Sharp, It. was an action of ejectment brought for the recovery of an estate, dependent on a child being born alive. Many wit- nesses were called in on both sides, to prove the existence of the infant, which at most could not exceed half an hour. A great deal of ingenuity was displayed by the counsel, and infinite pains taken for both plaintiff and defendant. The trial lasted from six o'clock in the evening till half past twelve at night, when a verdict was found for the plaintiff. Duke of Norfolk against Blanch — This was an action; brought by the Duke, as lord of the manor of Framlingham, against Mr. Blanch, a copyhold tenant of the Duke's manor, for lopping of trees, standing upon the common belonging to the said manor. The jury, which was a special one, con- ceived Mr. B. had a right to do so, and found a verdict for him. At Croydon, for the county of Surry, the following con- victs received judgment of death, viz. James Jacobs; for robbing James French ; Elizabeth Baker, for shoplifting ; John Lane, for horse- stealing ; and Richard Verrien, for picking a pocket; but none of them were ordered for exe- cution. During the course of the gaol delivery, Eleanor Douglas was tried for simple grand larcency, in stealing the clothes of a child not six months old, belonging to a- poor labouring man of the name of Cunningham, of which she had the care during the illness of its mother. It appeared that she had in some secret manner disposed of the child itself, and had refused to give any account of what had become of it. The jury found her guilty ; and Lord Loughborough re- spited her sentence in order to afford her an opportunity of disclosing, at the next assizes, the particulars of this horrid and mysterious transaction. It was in general supposed that she had sold the child ; but whether alive for the purpose of supplying a suppositious heir to some family estate, or dead for the purposes of anatomical dissection, was altogether uncertain. The learned and humane Judge endeavoured, with all the powers of his eloquence, to persuade her to give some ac- count of it ; but his endeavours were exerted in vain ; she stood sullen and silent, with her eyes fixed on the ground, until the gaoler removed her from the bar. At Glocester, a cause of the utmost importance to the li. berty of the subject, was tried before Mr. Baron Perryn. for a malicious prosecution, wherein Thomas Jefferis, of Warm, ley, Glourestershire, carpenter, was the plaintiff; and George James, of Knowle- hill, Somersetshire, attorney at law, was the defendant; when the maliciousness of the prosecution was fully proved to the satisfaction of the judge and a crouded court, aud a verdict obtained for the plaintiff of 8501. da- mages and costs of suite. • Two causes were tried at Salisbury assizes, before Mr. Justice Buller;— Boyter Versus Hibberd and Htibberd versus Boyter; in which a rare circumstance occurred— both the parties were nonsuited. One of these actions was brought for monies advanced upon a note of hand: but the note being drawn upon an improper stamp, was illegal, and a nonsuit followed of course. William Earl, for ravishing Sarah Spicer, was executed at Winchester on Saturday. He behaved in a decent and becoming manner, and acknowledged the justness of his sentence. He prayed with great fervour, which brought tears from many people ; and before he was turned off, said to the numerous spectators, " I forgive all my enemies, and hope they will forgive me. I wish all the young men round about me, will take warning by my untimely end, and be cautious how thy have any thing to say to the fair sex, for they will take advantage where they can." He was then launched into eternity, amidst many hundreds of beholders, Wednesday John Dowsing, late of Halesworth, in Suf- folk, labourer, was executed at Rushmere, near Ipswich, for the murder of his wife. Notwithstanding the excessive heat of the day., he was attended to the place of execution by a vast number of people. In his last moments he persisted in his innocence of the murder, but acknowledged he merited such an ignominious death, for the transgressions of his life. After hanging his usual time he was cut down, and his body given to Mr. Stubbing, surgeon, in Ipswich, in order to be dissected. He was 57 years of age. Monday Hannah Whitely was executed at Tyburn, near York, pursuant to her fentence. She appeared very- penitent; and her body, after hanging the usual time, was sent to the county hospital for dissection. Edward Robinson, who received sentence of death at the last assizes for the city of York, and who had eight separate indictments preferred against him, is reprieved !

On Thursday last was married at Welton, near Hull, Mr. Wilkinson, nephew to Mr. Robert Markland, merchant in Hull, to Miss. Payne, daughter to Mr. Payne, of the former place. A few days ago died at Barton upon- Humber, Mr. Bennett, attorney at law there. Yesterday se'nnight died at Hull, Mr, Thomas Sutton, of Howden. Death last week cut down the largest man in all Lancashire ! namely, Mr. Samuel Grundy, clothier, near Bury; whole bodily dimensions were so capacious, that it may be said of him, with Falstaff, He was long a stranger to the sight of his own knee. At our asszes was tried before Mr. Baron Hotham and a special jury, a cause relative to the right of stocking Wild- more Fen, in this county, wherein Jonathan Taylor was the plaintiff, and William Milnes the defendant. — The action was brought by the plaintiff as the occupier of a house and land in Horncastle, with a right of common on Wildmore fen, against the defendant, for damage done by him in stock- ing the fen.— Upon the trial, it was clearly proved by the plaintiff's witnesses, upon their cross- examination, that the right to stock was appurtenant to the houses only, and that the defendant was the occupier of a common- right house in the parish of Gunsby, where he slept once a month and oftener, and paid parish rates, and that such an occupier was entitled, by immemorial custom, to an unlimited right to stock the fen, and without paying any regard to the law of levancy and couchancy, which the plaintiff's counsel con- tended was absolutely necessary.— The plaintiff's witnesses having proved the defendant's case, he called no evidence on his part, and the jury withdrew for a short time, and then gave a verdict for the defendant, to the entire satisfaction of the Judge and Court.— Attorney for the plaintiff, Mr. Pen- nel, Horncastle; for the defendant, Mr. Mills, of the- same, place. Friday last John George, alias Smith flint, was executed here, pursuant to his sentence at the last assizes, for burglary and horse- stealing.— He declared to the Rev. Mr. Hare, who attended him, that he did not commit the burglary, but owned that he knew of it, and received the goods at a village two miles from Quadring. He walked to the fatal tree, where to the last moment he declared that he was not the man who broke into the house, and ill- treated Mr. Stafford. He warned the spectators to avoid smugglers and lewd women, and acknowledged to stealing several horses and mares. No man, at the place of execution, ever acted with greater fortitude. Committed to the county goal, On the 8th of this month, by Mr. John Inett, Susanna Dixon, of Saltfleet, charged with murdering Ann Smith, an infant six months old, daugh- ter of Elizabeth Smith, a single woman. A person of Leeds, who for several years had been vio- lently afflicted with the stone and gravel, on Friday morning parted with a stone, which measured two inches round, the oblong way, and one inch and three- eighths the other way. — This he attributes to the prescription of an eminent phy- sician, who ordered him to use a quantity of honey in his tea. On Sunday last, a man at Rotherham, undertook, for a wager of 5s. to eat sixty eggs in half an hour, which, to his honour, he performed with ease. We cannot but add our wish, that he might have received a further reward for his Sunday amusement, from the hands of a constable. Mr. James Clark, at the Reddock, parish of Polmont, Scotland, has a cow which had eight calves in the space of three years and one month, viz. four times twins. Last week the following melancholy accident happened at Farringdon, in Somersetshire A young man placing hay on the top of the mow, unfortunately fell, and striking his head against a pick stuck upright in the ground, the same entered between his chin and throat, and drove up to his brain. He died a few hours after in the greatest agonies. About four o'clock in the afternoon of the 6th ult. a most melancholy accident happened upon a Peatmoor, near Horse House, in Coverdale, in the North Riding of Yorkshire, occasioned by lightning— A man and two boys employed in digging for peats, observing the approach of a very heavy shower of rain, ran off towards a hut about 200 yards distance, for shelter; they went in a direct line, one after the other— when the lightning struck the old man, tore off his stockings and shoes, and burnt his legs: The elder boy, at the distance of about five yards from the old man, was struck dead, and rendered a most dreadful spectacle, his forehead, breast, thighs, and legs, being mangled in a most terrible manner — his hat was rent in pieces, his waistcoat and breeches much torn, and all his buttons and buckles melted, and an aperture made in the ground in two places near him. The other boy about twenty yards behind his Companions, was also struck senseless, and remained so for fome time, but afterwards recovered. The old man Continues very lame, and it is feared will be a Cripple for life. On the 26th the the body of a young woman, called Han- nah Corbrigg, was found murdered in a field near Barraside in the parish of Whalley Lancashire her head was almost seVered from the body which was afterwards opened, and a large quantity of arscnic was found in the stomach., This unfortunate girl was with child and circumstance's of suspi- cion falling on a neighbouring family, the father, mother; and a daughter are said to be apprehended, and lodged in lan- cashire goal. Search is making for the son, whose name is Christopher Hartley; he is about eighteen years of age, made his escape from the constable of the township, and is supposed to have embarked for Ireland. . - The AllianCe, Brown, with seven fish ; and the Brothers Straitsman ( late Mabb) with five- fish, are arrived at Hull from Davis's Straits.

Mr. Powell, vicar, of Bitteswell, Leicestershire, to Miss Twining, eldest daughter of Mr. Twining, of Isleworth.

Esq; eloped With a Mr. Studd, first mate of the Manship East Indiaman We wish them a happy voyage to Gretna- Green.- Her lover, that is, her husband that will be, is an able mariner, and will doubtless steer her safe into port. The price of wheat fell in our market last Saturday from 4s. to f, i. per load of five bushels. As John Codden, a lad belonging to Womenswould, in Kent, was leading a cow to field on Sunday last, he im- prudently tied a rope, which was fastened to the cow's- horns, round his wrist, when the animal being irritated, by the bite of a species of fly called brimps, the boy, unable to disen- angle himself, was dragged near a mile, and almost torn to pieces before any person could lend him assistance. He lived about an hour after, but never spoke a word. There is now in Mr. Sicklemore's garden in Ipswich, a last year's seedling carnation, the measure ten inches and half in circumference ; a fine purple bizarre, and very full of petals; besides many other sorts, well worth the notice of the admirers of that beautiful flower. A man, named Peter Buxton, is committed to Wy- mondham bridewell, for leaving his family chargeable to the parish of Diss in Norfolk ; he left his wife and three children at Diss about eighteen years since, and went into . Sussex, where he was married to another person, by whom he has had Seventeen children, and was apprehended whilst living with her Daniel Mileham, a poor labouring man in the parish of Dil- liam, in Norfolk, who had been deprived of senses for more than twenty years chained down to the floor of the chamber, in a small cottage in that village, attended by his ancient mother, and maintained by his brother, was found stretched out on the floor on Friday last, supposed to be dead, by the mother; and on the return of her son from work, she told him Daniel was dead ; he then went to the chamber, and finding his brother not cold, called him by his name ; Daniel instantlv arising, asked him what he wanted; and from that moment has had his perfect senses. he has not had any clothes on for more than ten years ; his beard, which was more than six inches long, was cut off on Saturday last; he was shaved, and has walked the fields ever since, attended by his good old mother.— Extraordinary as the above appears, it may be depended on as a fact. A most melancholy accident happened near Downham bridge, early on Wednesday morning. As four gentlemen who had been on a water excursion, were passing the bridge, one of tbe party, Mr. William Beadon, nephew to the Bishop of Gloucester, by some accident unfortunately slipped, fell overboard, and was drowned. His remains were interred on Wednesday evening in the chapel of Jesus college, A melancholy accident happened at Windsor last Week, William Smith, a laborious carpenter, being at work in a store- house for deals, the wall supporting the roof suddenly gave way, and the whole building fell into Clewer lane. A deal partition and several pair of rails falling on the poor man, he was killed on the spot. An inquisition was held on the body, and the coronet's jury brought in their verdict, accidental death. Oxford, August 8. This week at the election at Merton college, the following gentlemen were chosen Fellows of that Society; viz. Mr. Boulter, of Merton ; Mr. Carr, of Christ church, and Mr. Parker, of Oriel college. The Reverend Daniel Hughes, B. D. of Jesus college, has been presented by William John Lenthal, Esq. to the rectorv of Yelford, in this county. Yesterday was executed at Red- hill gallows, near Worces- ter, pursuant to their sentence, Henry Noxon, John Flem- ming, Richard Salter, and William Hill, for house- breaking; and John Wilks, for sheep- stealing. History can scarce afford a like cirCumstance.-. an unfor- tunate wretch, at the advanced age of 84, falling a victim to his country's law, and terminating his existance by an igno- minous death.

WHEN knaves, and fools, in folly's league combine, Some merciful— and Others witty Alas how hapless is his fate, How wretched is his sad estate, Who falls beneath such rude, contemptuous pity. Like a poor soldier on the embattled plain, When wounded , begs one moment more to stay, In kind compassion to his pain, But more in hopes of worldly gain), Some pitious rascal takes his life away. Pinchbeck. V E R S E S-, Sent to a LADY, whose picture was not like her.

LEAKE's Genuine Pills, So Justly Famous for their superior Efficacy in curing every Degree and Symptom of the Venereal Disease, the Scurvy, & c. Without Confinement or Restraint of Diet, in an easy, expeditious, safe, and secret Manner. One small tasteless Pill is a Dose, its Operation imperceptible, and requiring no particular Attention. IN fifteen days it generally cures those cruel disorders; and where it fails in that time of perfectly restoring health, the patient has the happy assurance that he or she is at the eve of being so restored, let the degree of malignancy be ever so great. It is an excellency peculiar to these Pills, to make directly to the com- plaining part, and enter into contest with the offending matter, which they suddenly dislodge and expel. They are declared by experience to be a preserver of health, as well as a restorer, by taking only eight single PILLS spring and fall in every year : In short, the patentee has this extraordinary obligation to them, that whatever he promised himself from them, they were sure to fulfil and exceed, as tho' impatient of immortal and universal fame. These Pills are most worthy a place in the cabinets of masters and captains of ships; the more so, for that they will keep good in all climates any length time, and that they have now borne the test of near sixty years, with encreasing credit to themselves, and honor to their author, insomuch that during the last eight years, they have radically cured upwards of forty thousand persons ( as maybe seen in the morning papers) many of whom had been discharged from hospitals, where salivation had been frequently repeated, and all other methods made use of without effect. Prepared and sold by the sole proprietor, THO. TAYLOR, member of the corporation of surgeons, London, at his house, No. 9, New Bridge- street, in boxes of only zs. 9d. each, duty included : Also by his appointment, they are sold, with copious directions ( whereby patients of either sex may judge of their case, and their cure) by Mr. NewcoMb, bookseller, and Mr. Howgrave, in Stamford; Mr. Brooke, printer, in Lincoln; Mr. jenkinson, Huntingdon; Miss Whaley, Mr. Quanborough, and Mr. Allen, Grantham; Mr. Preston, and Mrs. Worley, Boston; Mr. Marsh, Louth ; Messrs.

PEARL DENTIFRICE-, pre. pared by JACOB HEMET, Dentist to her Majesty and his Ruval Highness the Prince of Wales; . Price 2s. 9d. each, Stamps . included, . , AFTER a Course of above Forty Years Experience as a Dentist to the Royal Family and principal Nobility, and Twenty Years Proof of the salutary Effects arising from the Use of the Essence of Pearl and Pearl Dentifrice, in removing every Com- plaint incident to the Teeth and Gums; Mr. HEMET humbly hopes he is fully intitled to recommend their general Use, in preference to any other Preparation for that Purpose. The great Balsamic Qualities contained in the Essence of Pearl and Pearl Dentifrice are found most certainly to preserve the Teeth free from Decay, to prevent those injured by Neglect from becoming worse, shield them against all Putrefaction, fasten such as are loose, make- the foulest Teeth become White and beautiful, entirely preserve the Enamel, and render the Breath delicately fweet. They likewise produce this excellent Effect, that thofe Persons who constantly use them will never be liable to . the Tooth- ach or Scurvy in the Gums. Mr. HeMET gives this public Notice, that he has appointed only Messrs. BAYLEY and LowE, Perfumers, in Cockspur- Street, near the Bottom of the Hay- market, to sell the same, Wholesale and Retail, He likewise begs to observe, that his Name is written on each Stamp. Sold also by R. NewcoMb, Stamford; J. Horden, Peterboro' ; and the Agents to this Paper. Further Proof of the Efficacy of Dr. STEERS'S OPODELDOC.

"' ". Royal Hotel, Pall- Mall, July 2d,. 1789 ' The superior Excellence of this Medicine for Sprains, Bruises Rheumatisms, Sec. is now so universally established by the Testi- monies of Persons of the first Consequence, that no further Recom- mendations, perhaps, may be requisite ; but it is become absolutely necessary to guard the Public against the Impositions which are practiced by sundry Druggists in Town and Country, and by tra- velling Venders, under various Pretences; many of whom have the Audacity to employ the Names of Dr. Steers and Mr. Newbery, in order to dispose of their spurious Preparations All Purchasers, therefore, who would avail themselves of the Efficacy of the Genuine Dr. STEERS'S Opodeldoc, are requested to observe, that in the Stamp, which is pasted on each Bottle, the Name of F, Newbery is engraved, by Order of the Commissioners of the Stamp- Office; and all such as are offered to Sale without this Mark of Authenticity, are Counterfeits.

ETHEREAL ANODYNE SPIRIT, Prepated by the Inventor,. W. Ti cKELL, Apothecary and Chy- mist, at Bath. » THIS Medicine has peculiar efficacy in Diseases of the Breast, as the Asthma, Hooping- Cough, and all other Coughs unattended with Inflammation ; but its singular Excellence is in the Cure of that dreadful and generally fatal Disease, the Dropsy of the Breast. — It has also been given with great Success in other Dropsies, and it is probably the most certain Diuretic hitherto discovered. The following Case will be a Proof of its Virtues: " Mr. EVATT, Upholder, Westgate- Street, Bath, had for many Years been subject to severe Fits of the Asthma; but for- Twelve Months past he was often seized in the Night with such a Suffocation, as to deprive him of Speech, and to require the utmost Exertion for the Recovery of his Breast When he began to use the Etherial Spirit, he was much emaciated, had great Difficulty of breathing 0n the least Exercise, attended with a troublesome Cough, and he was obliged to sit up in Bed the greater part of the Night; he had much Thirst and Loss of Appetite.; his Urine was high coloured, aud voided in small Quantity, and both his Legs and Thighs were excessively swelled. In the Course of a Fortnight, he had great Discharges of Urine, the Swellings had nearly subsided, the Appetite began to return, and his Breath was relieved. The etherial Spirit soon quieted the Cough, and procured refreshing Sleep. He had but One severe Attack after he had Recourse to it, and since that has had no Return of his Complaint, except in a slight Degree after taking Cold." This Medicine is sold by FRANcis NEWBERY, at the Only Warehouse for Dr. JAMES'S POWDER, NO 45, the East End of St. Paul's Church- Yard, a few Doors from Cheapside, London, in Bottles, Price 3s. 6d. each, Duty included ) also by R.
